About Brian & Sherry Ashworth Owner
We are Husband and Wife and 2 teenage children that built this home with the help of our brothers. There is a lot of love and time spent making this house a home, and we are thrilled to share it with the many people, including family and friends, that have already stayed here. We know once you visit, you are sure to return.
Why Brian & Sherry Ashworth Owner chose Sweetwater
We chose the area because of its charm and year round activities. There is not another property on the river that has such a wonderful view and the convenience of still being within 5 miles of town. The sounds of the rushing river make relaxation instantaneous. There is not a moment that we ever regret visiting the area and cannot wait to one day live here year round.
What makes this Cabin unique
We enjoy our home here on the river because of its charm and the fact that every season holds some special memories that were made in this home. From the first Christmas we stayed and filled the home with our special holiday decorations to the first Thanksgiving turkey we cooked, our most memorable times were spent in front of the log fireplace inside and our firepit nestled between our river cabin and our friends' river cabin. Spending time with our family and friends at this cabin is always our greatest joy. Reconnecting with our out-of-town family and making more memories with our family and friends have made this home just that; a home filled with a lot of love and memories that we will cherish forever.

Spotless furnished home in beautiful location
This home is absolutely beautiful, inside and out. It’s very evident that the owners take great pride and care in maintaining this property. The interior is updated and very comfortable. The decor is very much cabin-like, but with a classy vibe that rounds out the edges, transforming this well appointed cabin into the perfect retreat . The property is literally feet from the river, offering vantage points from the comfort of a masterfully built deck (up or downstairs), ample sitting area around the fire-pit or from the concrete steps leading directly into the river for hours of relaxing fun. The owners are flexible and truly a pleasure to interact with, offering fishing tips and quickly responding to any questions. The property along with the kindness of the owners exceeded our expectations. We’re already discussing when to plan our next visit. You should too!
Wow thank you for the incredible revue,
Great property right on the river. Beautiful inside and out.
Very nice setting on river house decorated with mountain cabin decor. Very clean and updated furnishings. River not suited for fly fishing since it’s below dam release. Above dam is good at DH area. Also only 35 minutes from upper Nantahala river for fly fishing.
So relaxing!! Cabin was very beautiful and the river right behind was just so peaceful!
Beautiful home and awesome location! We had a wonderful time!
