Whittier cabin description

Simple Times Cabin is nestled over three thousand feet high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is located on Dicks Creek and backs up to the Natahala National Forest. The cabin is conveniently located to Cherokee, Tuskaskigee River, The Blue Ridge Parkway, Sylva, and the extraordinary Great Smokey Mountains National Park!

This unique cabin has high ceilings with windows built in the loft allowing you gaze upon the moon and stars while laying in bed. The cabin features 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. One bedroom has a queen size bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds. There is a full kitchen for cooking, a living room, and a sun room. Watch fresh spring rain, leaves of autumn, or winter's first snow as you look out of the glass in the peaceful sun room. The living room has a Vermont Castings Woodstove in it. Outside, there is a wrap around deck, a swing, and easy access to the creek side picnic area by the way of steps. At night, open the bedroom windows and let the lull of the rushing creek put you to sleep or simply relax and catch your favorite TV show on DirecTV! Find your comfort zone with the newly installed central heating and A/C. You will find all the comforts of home without all the stress and responsibilities! So we hope you come and enjoy all the best that the Smokies have to offer!
Nearby attractions/things to do include Harrah's Casino, Cherokee, fishing, tubing, Santa's Land, Gem Mining, hiking, riding the parkway, and visiting the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. ASK ABOUT OUR SPECIAL WEEKDAY RATES THROUGH SEPTEMBER!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              Why the Owner Chose Whittier:
              Buying the Simple Times Cabin was a fulfillment of a 'dream' that we have had for years. We had been looking for a place in the mountains for several years. One day we happened to be looking at some property on Dicks Creek Road. Once we saw the property that we originally came to view, we knew that it wasn't for us, but like always we went on up the road to see what else we could find. When we came to the gravel road, we both got interested in what we were seeing. A gravel road, a roaring creek, and a beautiful forest-what more could we ask for. When we pulled over the bridge that leads you onto Choice Place we immediately got out. My husband said that the smile on my face said it all. The sound of the rushing creek and the beautiful woods that surrounded were absolutely amazing.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Dicks Creek runs in front of our cabin. Our property backs up to the Nantahala National Forest.
