Brasstown cabin description

If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing and comfortable mountain getaway then the Whippoorill Cabin is your perfect choice. This new cabin has 2 bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen with granite counters throughout. The cabin is nestled in the tri-state corner of NC, Georgia, and Tennessee. With a mere 2 hour drive you can be in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Chattanooga, Atlanta, or Asheville.
The John C. Campbell Folk School is less than a mile away and offers a variety of classes from blacksmithing, woodworking, basket making, etc. and weekly concerts. Or if you are up to a little 1/2 mile hike, just take a trail at the back of the property to the school.
If you want to bring in the new year in a different view, then you will have to experience the famous 'Possum Drop' held every year at Clay's Corner. You will also get to enjoy the best fireworks in Western North Carolina. Clay's Corner is also just a stones throw away or walking distance if it is not too cold.
There is also a stocked pond on the property where you can fish (catch and release).
Awake to breathtaking view of the trees and mountains and listen to the many birds singing. Especially in the spring, you will never get tired of listening to the whippoorwills. Simply enjoy the natural beauty of the area by relaxing on one of the covered porches and you may see a deer or more wandering through the yard.
The gas fireplace in the living area is perfect for those chilly nights.

Lakes: Chatuge, Nantahala, Hiawassee, Apalachia, Nottley
Countless rivers, creeks, streams
Scenic Drives: Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smokey Mountains National Park, Cherohala
Skyway, just to name a few.
Whitewater fafting, tubing, Kayaking (Ocoee & Nantahala)
