The cabin is located just 3 miles from the Nantahala River providing some of the best Rainbow Trout fishing and whitewater rafting in all of North Carolina. Bring your own boat or rent a pontoon boat and fish, picnic or water ski on the gorgeous Lake Nantahala, which is just down the road from the cabin. A short drive from the cabin is the Smoky Mountain Railroad, the Nantahala Outdoor Center and several whitewater rafting outfitters. Go up the mountain about a half mile and you are at the Appalachian and the Bartram Trails for unbelievable hiking and nature experiences. Surrounded by mountain views and the Nantahala National Forest, the cabins are private and secluded, but still close enough for day trips to all the fun areas in North Carolina, North Georgia and Southern Tennessee; i.e., Cherokee, Maggie Valley, Gatlinburg, Franklin, Helen, Hiawassee, Dillard, Clayton, Andrews, Murphy...as well as many others. Area activities include spectacular mountain views and scenery, real gem mining, antiques, arts and crafts, the Smoky Mountain Railroad, Harrah's Casino, the Cherokee Indian Reservation, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, golfing, hiking, kayaking, rafting, trout fishing, snow skiing, snow boarding and much more.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: My name is Patrick Robinson. I was born and grew up in Tallahassee, FL, a 'flat-lander', but when I visited the North Carolina Community of Nantahala, I immediately knew I wanted to return there when I retired. My wife, Dianne, and I purchased 25 acres in 2004. Since, that time we have added 3 small log cabins to the property. When we can't be in Nantahala, we share the beauty and peace with others by renting the cabins. Dianne and I have taken many friends with us to the cabins and they always want to return, if fact they can't wait to return, even if we do not go back with them. I assure you that once you visit the area, it will call you back time and again. The privacy and seclusion is especially nice when you lead a stressful life style. For us living in Florida where the summers are hot and humid, by August we have had enough heat and it's time to visit Nantahala for that needed cooling off period. We hope you will give our cabins and the Nantahala Community a chance to give you some needed relief from life.
