Unique Waterfall House Nestled in Mountains

Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

This cabin-like home is nestled in a hill beside a 250 foot waterfall that can vary from a calm flow to raging fall depending on recent rainfall. As the water cascades to the bottom it turns into a creek that wraps around the property. From the moment you walk in the front door, the focus of this home is the waterfall. If can be enjoyed from almost every room. The house is found at the end of a gravel drive off North Norton Road. It sits just above 3800 ft elevation providing perfect temperatures most of the summer, hence, no air conditioning, just lots of windows and sliding glass doors. There are no neighbors in sight, and while the house is in a private setting, it is still 15 minutes from Cashiers and close to fishing, boating and swimming in Lake Glenville.

If you tire of the waterfall (which I can't imagine), you can relax in front of the fireplace, television (one in the den and in two bedrooms), or just soak in the comfort of the old pine walls and hickory floors. The upstairs is the main living floor and has been renovated using both old and new materials. The owner has painstakingly removed all the original wood from the walls, planed and refinished it, and returned it to the walls. The master bedroom with its newly renovated bathroom is on this floor, as well as the kitchen with stainless appliances, hickory cabinets, and granite countertops. The laundry and a half bath are located beside the kitchen. The downstairs still maintains the character of the original walls and has a small kitchen, two bedrooms and a full bath.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved getting up early in the morning and drinking coffee on the deck to observe the waterfall, chipmunks and hummingbirds. Our son is attending Western Carolina in the fall and we chose this house to stay at for the week while attending orientation. The only suggestion I have is to trim the bushes at the end of driveway. We had trouble seeing if cars were coming when pulling out on to main road. We were concerned about not having air conditioning, but we were very comfortable with windows up and fans that are provided. We truly enjoyed our stay and made some wonderful memories.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the cabin and the waterfall view. Thanks too for letting me know about the bushes. They are not on our property but I am asking the owner to cut them back or let me do it for him.

Seriously gorgeous view. The house is absolutely amazing. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this house. I would suggest planning your eating experiences in Highlands, NC (about a 25 min drive) or elsewhere. There is not much going on in Cashiers.

The view from the deck was mesmerizing. Deck off downstairs bedroom offered a beautiful setting to enjoy a cup of coffee. Friends saw Facebook posting of waterfall. Now they want to book.

The waterfall cabin is absolutely breathtaking!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The waterfall cabin is truly a unique and beautiful place! Like the other reviewers said, the pictures don’t even compare to how amazing the house truly is! There was a little miscommunication with the directions, but we eventually made it.

We woke up to a beautiful dusting of snow the first morning. It was cold out, but we were very comfortable with the heaters on. The bed was also very comfortable and the sound of the waterfall was so soothing. I really enjoyed the deep soaking tub too. The kitchen was also equipped with everything we needed to cook a few meals. It was so cozy I could’ve just stayed at the house staring at the waterfall the whole time and been content, but it was warmer the next day so we ventured out to High Falls. It is only a few miles away. It’s not the easiest trail, but it’s only 1.4 miles long and totally worth it!! Such an amazing place!!

This was our first time using VRBO and it was such a great experience! We felt so welcome and at home. Thanks so much Michael and Katrina for a wonderful, relaxing time!!

The sound of the a waterfall is so soothing, I just wanted to sit and listen to it all day but there are too many places to hike to see more waterfalls...
