Nantahala cabin description

Cabin In Waterfall Cove. Sit next to the most musical creek you'll ever hear. You won't want to leave! The newly renovated vintage cedar two-story cabin in the Nantahala Forest sleeps 6-8, is situated in a private cove . Year round access and comforts, with a long paved drive from hwy. Two large screened porches adjacent to the flowing creek are shaded by large hickory trees in a natural setting. Yet no long drives to all the places you want to visit including the Great Smokey Mtns. National Park (20 minutes away) New & Fully equipped modern kitchen. Open the windows in all bedrooms and sleep to the sounds of the melodious creek that flows from the waterfall all year round. The musical creek wraps around the cabin. 3 bedrooms with king, queen and twin beds respectively. Two new bathrooms, one downstairs and one upstairs. The screened back porch doubles as a sleeping area with a comfortable futon and the most favorite place to sleep. The living room is spacious and cozy with bay windows overlooking the creek, flat screen TV & convenient internet, wi-fi included. Full laundry room upstairs and extra storage for luggage and misc. large items. We took extra care to include the most comfortable mattress in each bedroom. We also took extra care to create numerous conversation areas so that even with 8 people there is always a place to 'get away' for private conversations rather than always having others 'underfoot' Enjoy your favorite book while sitting in one of two outdoor swings in the front or back terraces, on a bench by the creek, or rock in one of two large screen porches. The temperature here is always cooler due to the eco-rainforest environment. Walk to the secluded waterfall behind the cabin and refresh yourself in the spring-fed crystal water that flows into the creek or grill a steak or roast hot dogs from our stone fire pit and bar-b-que grills The beautiful old stone kitchen floor was preserved from the original farmhouse. Fully modernized retreat preserving its 1940's vintage ambiance. Offered for the first time to discriminating vacationers who are looking for something different. Only 15 min. to the Smokey Mtn's Scenic By-way and one mile to the NOC (Nantahala Outdoor Center, official site of 2013 World Free-style Canoe Competition). 20 minutes to Cherokee Casino and Native American museum and out-door drama center. 12 minutes to the Smokey Mountain Scenic Railroad and Polar Express in Bryson City. Several rivers and lakes for trout fishing, rafting, kayaking, tubing, or boating just minutes away. Enjoy the new zip-line tree top excursions in the Nantahala Forest, biking, hiking trails galore. Canoe or kayak on the Nantahala River minutes from the cabin. Most of all ENJOY YOUR STAY AND COME BACK OFTEN

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: I am a native Florida girl with an eye for adventure. I am a practicing attorney who is tired of the rat race (the rats were winning) and was looking for just the perfect place to retire. As a Floridian, I love the water but was tired of the 9 month of hot weather. I started searching for 'my little cabin by a creek' for several years but could not find the right spot. If it was quiet, didn't feel like living in a subdivision, had lots of nature, tall trees, and water close by to fish, swim and boat, it usually was too far from everything, hard to get to in winter, too remote for comfort, or was one of too many cabins advertised and made to look like a tacky Daniel Boone's place for tourist. One day I stumbled on this abandoned house that most would never look at twice and the rest is history. It was sitting lonesome in a cove surrounded by hills of giant hickory trees on three sides, not too visible from the Hwy, but just minutes from lots of rivers, lakes, trails, and 'adventure'. Strange was that the road was paved going in. Later I learned it was an abandon Hwy after the new Hwy 19/74 was built. The giant hickory trees were covered in vines, the creek was full of dead branches, overgrown, and the ravine in front was knee deep in Kudzu and hid the flowing stream. It had been on the market for several years, but perhaps others didn't see what I saw it could be. I couldn't get the vision of its potential out of my mind. Looking past the mildew, trash, vines, and Kudzu, and derelict appearance, I saw what it now has become, a stress-free retreat that replenishes my soul.

              Why the Owner Chose Nantahala:
              To me the ideal retreat would have to have a creek to enjoy, but not one that I had to walk to experience. This property has the most musical little stream I've ever heard in all my searches. I was intrigued that with open windows, in nearly every room in the house I could hear the bubbling steam. Lying in a cozy bed or rocking on the porches and reading a good book, being lulled to sleep by the sounds of falling water is my idea of heaven on earth. I made sure the two porches with wooden floors, had rocking chairs, and I envisioned people sitting with a good glass of wine, reminiscing about the adventures they had that day. When I saw the ravine initially overgrown with Kudzu vines, I could imagine wildflowers and weeping willows swaying in sync with the music of the creek. In planning the remodel I wanted outdoor swings to sit and talk with my friends or just a quiet place to be alone. With much diligence and a desire to make it a happy place again, I began a six months remolding 'adventure'. Every room has been considered in making it cozy, convenient, and comfortable. After clearing the kudzu vines and planting grass in the ravine, I promptly planted three weeping willows to grow tall and provide cool shade for picnics by the creek that flows down through it. I brought in tree surgeons to trim the neglected giant hickories and dogwood that abound on the property. I personally searched for the right furniture and decorations that would be the icing on the cake. I have diligently photographed the metamorphosis and am proud to say the worm turned into a beautify butterfly!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Two large screened porches, a year-round cascading stream flows from the waterfall and circles the cabin from back to front and can be heard no matter where you sit. The tall hickory trees and dogwoods keep the property cool and shaded no matter what the temperature. I love being close to so many fun places within minutes of the cabin. The surrounding forest always gives peace to any weary traveler.
