Property description

Listen to the sounds of Highland Creek while grilling from the top deck or just relaxing in the rocking chairs. Located in the upscale Highland Creek community, you have access to the Hiwassee River and the community. pavilion just a short walk from the home. There is nothing better than crisp mountain air and a log home with country charm and all new furnishings and linens.

This beautiful all wood interior and exterior cabin has a light-and-bright, open floor plan with lots of windows and a large deck. It is beautifully decorated and well maintained. No scary drive to this home -- very gentle access, lots of parking for vehicles, motorcycles and small to medium sized trailers, and just minutes from town, the Cherokee golf course, and the John C. Campbell folk school. We make it easy to enjoy the best the area has to offer.

The great room includes a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, and living room with a large gas stone fire place. The room is loaded with windows and has access to the back deck. The dining room table is set up for 4 but can seat 6 comfortably by using the second bench. The kitchen is well stocked with a service for 8 and plenty of pots, pans and utensils as well as a coffee maker and dishwasher. The living room has a 46-inch LCD HDTV with a DVD player and complimentary satellite and wireless internet. All the amenities you’d have at home are right here for you at up the creek!

Two bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are located on the main level while one bedroom and bathroom is located in the walkout basement. All bedrooms are tastefully decorated and include a queen bed and a dresser/chest, and the master bedroom has a 32-inch LCD HDTV with satellite. The cabin sleeps 6 people.

If satellite and Wi-Fi is not your style, you can enjoy one of the games or movies we provide. Better yet, BBQ from our deck while watching for deer and turkeys or take a short walk to watch the otters in the river. You can play in the water, fish, BBQ or just read a book. There is something for everyone!

Car: Necessary

Ideally located less than 2 hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Gatlinburg and Asheville. If casino gaming is your thing, we’re only 60 miles from Harrah’s casino in Cherokee.

If you like outdoor activities, visit our numerous lakes and rivers for boating, fishing, swimming, white water rafting and tubing. You can hike, bike, horseback ride, picnic and view waterfalls at nearby forests and state parks. Shoppers will enjoy exploring the quaint town of Murphy along with nearby Blairsville and Blue Ridge. The Cherokee golf course is only about a mile or two from the cabin and the John C. Campbell folk school is just 5 minutes away. Thrill seekers will enjoy white water rafting, zip lining or cruising the “tale of the dragon”.

If you are looking to take a drive, visit Helen Ga, the Cherokee reservation, Harrah’s casino, Biltmore estate, and so much more. Take a shorter drive to Franklin to look for gemstones or ride the Smokey Mountain Railway train from Bryson City – both less than an hour away. We have many brochures for you to review in our cabin. Most folks might find it enjoyable to relax on our deck, listening to the creek and watching for deer and turkeys. Whatever you decide, life is good when you are at Up the Creek.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hi – we’re Dale and Michele and the proud owners of the Up the Creek. Although we're from Florida, North Carolina is in our blood. Our first getaway together back in the early 1990s was to the Western Carolinas and we've been returning ever since. Dale’s Mom bought a small place in Maggie Valley in the early 2000s and my parents permanently moved to Murphy from Florida in 2010. We know the area well. We've been to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, on the Smokey Mountain Railway, Grandfather Mountain, Flat Rock Mountain, the “Tail of the Dragon” (on Harley’s and in cars), horseback riding, white water rafting, gambling at Harrah’s, Elk viewing and so much more. We just can’t get enough so, finally, in 2013 we purchased Up the Creek. One day this will be our permanent home, but until then we are sharing with others. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located in the upscale Highland Creek community, we have access to the Hiwassee River -- just a short walk from the cabin. A pavilion and a grill are available. You can play in the river, fish for trout, kayak or just relax and read a book. We enjoy sitting on a chair, watching the ducks and looking for otters.
