Property description

Welcome to Log Cabin on Big Creek. You and your family will be very comfortable in our creek-side mountain log cabin located in beautiful Highlands, North Carolina. Our cabin is very unique because it sits right next to a very large creek. From both back porches you look right down into the water. We have high-speed internet with WiFi and BlueRay. You will enjoy our secluded location off a private gravel road. The only sounds you'll hear while sitting in our large screened-in porch are the rushing of water from the creek, wind in the trees, and if you're lucky, a trout reaching for a mayfly. The cabin sits at an altitude of over 3,800 ft. so the temperature is at least 10 degrees cooler than Atlanta and there is relatively little humidity! There are wonderful hikes throughout the Highlands/Cashiers area to be enjoyed year round. After your hike you’ll enjoy a soak in our jetted tub. If you're looking for a pet-friendly vacation, you've come to the right spot. We consider all pets except cats.

No Smoking: We have a strict no smoking policy in the cabin. If you smoke outside the cabin please field strip cigarettes and throw the butts in the garbage.

We are very good about keeping the availability calendar up to date.

Pets: We accept dogs that don't tear-up the house and landscaping, however, there is an additional $25.00 charge, per dog, per stay, for interior clean-up and a $100 refundable deposit. Please do your best to pick-up after your dog outside. Please don't leave your dogs in the cabin unattended for long periods of time. Cats are not allowed under any circumstances as the owner is very allergic! Other pets are okay with prior approval. Finally, although our cabin is pet friendly we are not flea friendly! In consideration of all our renters, please make sure your dogs are free of fleas or you will be charged to get rid of them.

Seasons: There is a lot to do all year round in the Highlands/Cashiers area. Off season can be the best time if you like the many hiking trails all to yourself. Leaf Season is spectacular. We often get snow in the winter to be prepared with a 4-wheel drive or chains.
