  • Very comfortable and conveneint cabin!

    "This is a very well appointed, comfortable and quiet cabin that is centrally located in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. My family of four loved our week spent here! It is quiet and cozy yet close to the many activities this wonderful area has to offer. You could also just spend the day in the cabin and relax; it has wonderful decks to sit on and read, a pool table, hot tub, a corn hole game and a fire pit! It is a 15 minute drive to the Oconaluftee Visitor Center Entrance of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. It also has the towns of Dillsboro and Sylva located nearby with good, local restaurants and grocery stores. The town of Cherokee is close as well for more things to do. Within 30 minutes are more cute towns, restaurants, shops and outdoor activities. There is also a very good local produce stand 5 minutes from the cabin! After days of hiking in the GSMNP or a morning horseback ride we would come back and use the wonderful hot tub. A fire pit made for a great night of making smores. The cabin is immaculately clean and well stocked for cooking meals at the cabin. There is a lot of room to spread out as a family and everything is very well maintained. This cabin is in great shape. Jerry the local property manager is wonderful and provides a great welcome to the area! Our only regret is that we did not stay longer to tube some of the local rivers, gem hunt, do more hikes and eat in more local restaurants! This is a must rent if you want a first class stay in the Smoky Mountains. It feels secluded but is in the middle of so much! Ruth and Jim, the owners, have done a wonderful job with this cabin. Thank you for letting us stay there!"

  • Awesome Property!!!

    "Our family spent the Thanksgiving Holiday at this wonderful property. It could not have been any better! The owners are a pleasure to deal with. The location is so perfect...less than 15 minutes to Cherokee(Home of the world's best trout fishing), 10 minutes to Bryson City(scenic train rides), close to Nantahala(& all the rafting companies too!) Very comfortable home that is fully stocked with anything needed while vacationing....Kitchen supplies, laundry supplies, bonus room with an extra refrig., games, etc. The over-sized,"walk-in", tiled shower in the master suite is a great feature. The country club it is located within has tennis courts & a pool that have a marvelous view! We highly reccomend this property & will definitely stay again!"

  • amazing location

    "AMAZING LOCATION. We got in late and was grateful there wasn't just a key at the door, but greeted like a family guest. After getting lost, long drive, so thankful. The FTR caretaker was great. She listened to our wish list, where to find the local casino, best horse Back riding, Fly fishing classes, and a watercolor painting class....even our special needs for groceries she nailed where to go? She made suggestions and helped us book most of our activities within the hour. My family can not say enough about the calm, southern kindness and the over all efficiency of everyone we met while staying at cabin. Plus, Plus, Plus! We really enjoyed the local unadvertised attractions, and local hang outs that were recommended. Loved the Smoky mountain train going by, everyone waves at us, so local and perfect. We stayed 7 nights went to the recommended Local Trout Farm, a huge Local Blue Berry Farm and two amazing Old North Carolina Inns for dinners out. The Cabin was all we dreamed of inside and out. The yard so beautifully landscaped on the river bank. The photos just don't do it all justice. LOVED the Hammock! River Sunsets! Perfect memory - Cooked trout outside at the fire pit, drank locally brewed beers from Bryson City, caught lighting bugs and our dogs swam in the river bed for hours."

  • Great time!

    "This was the second time me and my wife have been here in the past year and we plan on coming back again. Not only is the cabin in the perfect place to go tubing down the river in Cherokee or go grab a bite to eat over in Sylvia but if you just wanna relax you can sit on the porch and just take in the view!"

Whittier Travel Tips

Whittier Vacation Rentals Give You More Convenience Than a Hotel

Whittier lies deep in the natural beauty of North Carolina. It lies on the border of the Nantahala National Forest and just South of the Great Smoky Mountains National Forest. Instead of a front desk and bellhops, you'll have a cabin all to yourself. You'll be able to fully enjoy and appreciate the wonders that nature has to offer you in perfect solitude.

Whittier Cabins Help You Return to Nature

From your Whittier cabin, you'll be able to see the best of the Nantahala Forest, but you'll also be close to some of the best natural sights that North Carolina has to offer. You can take a ride north and just a short hike you can see the beautiful eighty foot Rainbow Falls. The Smoky Mountains holds numerous hiking and walking trails that just beg for you to explore.

Smoky Mountain Cabin Rentals Let You Explore Rich Cherokee History

The North Carolina Smoky Mountain region has some of the few Cherokees who managed to avoid the relocation to Oklahoma. You can visit the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, which include the tribe's history along with numerous exhibits about how they lived, dressed, and played. Moreover, instead of bland lifeless mannequins, the exhibit life-like features made of models of various tribe members. If that's not enough, try driving through the Cades Cove, which includes a well-preserved 19th century village where the Cherokee often helped the European settlers survive. However, the Cherokee aren't just museums and historical sites. You can visit the actual Cherokee reservation and see a different story of American than you will find anywhere else.
