About Gary Burke
We moved to the mountains of North Carolina in 1990 to get out of the hectic city of Dallas, Texas. We had been looking for somewhere to build that was lakefront or creek-front when we discovered this property in Dillsboro that was on beautiful Dick's Creek. We bought it and I built the cabin for us to live in. Eventually I was able to acquire adjacent property and built another home. We liked the original cabin too much to sell so we decided to place it on the vacation rental market so others could enjoy it.
Gary Burke purchased this Cabin in 1992
Why Gary Burke chose Whittier
15 acres of prime mountain property with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park bordering the West ridge property line and Dick's Creek bordering the East property line. The cabin sits in a private location on the corner of the property backing up to the creek.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin is not your average rental cabin. I'm a custom builder and originally built it to live in and did until building another home on the property. It is a great location being centrally located in Dillsboro. You can go one way towards Waynesville and Asheville or the other direction towards Cherokee and Bryson City. The cabin is privately located on 15 acres with no one to disturb you and a wonderful, relaxing back porch to sit on and enjoy the creek. You can make a day out of that. I've lived many places and this is by far the best place so far. You can bet on having four full seasons to enjoy. It's the perfect location. Come and enjoy.

We enjoyed our stay!
Great Cozy Cabin
Cozy Cabin along the creek, plenty of space in the cabin. Nice relaxing back deck overlooking the creek. The owner was super welcoming and right up the road if you need him for anything. It was nice to be up in the mountains, feeling like you are far away but the nearest Walmart was only about 15 minutes away.
Christmas in the Smokies
We wanted something different for Christmas, we choose a different t spot every year, since Florida is never the “White,Cold Christmas” we want. The cabin was clean, all we had to bring was our favorite foods. (We had to leave some unopened food in the fridge since we drove up and didn’t want food to go bad, we hope someone would enjoy it instead of throwing things away :) )
All we had to do was clean up before leaving.
Everything was provided, fully stocked kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms!
It was raining as we went up to the cabin so we left with plenty of time to try to arrive as close to the 4pm mark as possible, once it gets dark up in the mountain, it’s DARK! (If you’re unfamiliar with mountain driving, plan ahead! The internet goes out as soon as you start heading into the “neighborhood” but if you print out the directions ahead of time you’ll be just fine! There’s also WiFi at the cabin that helped with having a 5 year old keeping busy and two pre teens on their phones! ) It was a great experience for our 3 kids and us 4 adults! The sound of the river at night was amazing and a wonderful sound to wake up to in the morning.
Thank you for opening up this beautiful cabin to our family! Definitely would love to come back soon!! - The Collazos Family
This was a very nice place, peaceful and quiet. The house had everything you needed as advertised and the wifi was excellent (this was a must) and in this area that is unheard of. Looking to be back in April!
Excellent vacation in the NC mountains.
Come here for a nice getaway, especially if you have children who like playing in streams.
The cabin is located on 15 private acres that borders “The Great Smoky Mountains National Park” and is only 5 miles away from the popular tourist location Dillsboro, North Carolina. Western Carolina University is 20 minutes south in Cullowhee and continuing south is Cashiers, Highlands with all the famous waterfalls. Asheville is 1 hour to the east or 20 minutes to Waynesville and Maggie Valley. The Cherokee Indian Reservation is north as well as the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and all the outlet malls. To the west is Bryson City, Fontana Lake and the Nantahala Outdoor Center for white water rafting. The cabin is perfectly located with the back porch overlooking Dick’s Creek. Dick’s Creek is a bold mountain creek that cascades down the mountain in a series of waterfalls and pools. It’s perfect for children to play in or move the rocks around building pools and waterfalls.
