"Best Catch" is a well decorated cedar cabin which offers a master bedroom with a sliding glass door that opens to the covered porch where you can sit on your rocker and listen to the river flow by. An open kitchen with a center island bar, breakfast/dining area, a family room with a sliding glass door that opens to a large covered deck overlooking the river, and a stone gas fireplace make this a very charming place to stay. The open deck on both sides of the porch lets you enjoy the rushing river view and sounds of the outdoors.

Why Laura Bowers chose Sylva

Attending College at WCU and always having a love for the mountains and the great trout fishing on the Tuck we decided to purchase a vacation rental home and are glad that we are able to share it with those who have the same love for the Western North Caroline region as we do.

Exactly What I Needed

Feeling stressed or burnt out in your day to day life? Visit this cabin!! You won't be sorry. I felt all of my cares melt away the second I stepped into the river to fish. Cabin is impeccable and clean. Scenery is breathtaking.

This is a very nice place. My only recommdation is blackout shades in the second floor bedroom. Small criticism for an overall great place to stay.

Excellent Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding cabin in a perfect location. The cabin is directly off of the river for great trout fishing. The cabin has the luxury of a separate upstairs bedroom for the kids or other guests. It is within close proximity to everything you need. You are very close to Sylva and Dillsboro where you can enjoy some great shopping and restaurants. You are also close enough to visit Harrah's Casino in Cherokee, which is only about 30 minutes away. You can even spend the day by driving to Asheville, which is close as well. For those skiers, you can drive to Cataloochee for the day as well. Overall, the cabin is perfect for anyone who wants to just relax by a fire by the river or for those who are looking for every adventure imaginable within a short driving distance. This is a must stay cabin.

Great Cabin on the River!

  • 5 of 5

We took the family up for a long weekend vacation. The fishing was awesome and my two boys caught plenty of trout. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. Great location if you want to go to Cashiers or Asheville. Silva has a lot to offer too. What a great value for the price you pay. We have started a new family vacation up on the river.
