Property description

The cabin is located on 15 private acres bordering “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 which 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. Additionally, the cabin is stocked with plenty of fresh linens and towels, soaps and detergents, paper towels and trash bags along with a unique collection of cooking utensils. All the items other cabins expect you to bring or spend your valuable vacation time shopping for. All you need to bring is food and drink then spend your time relaxing on the back porch overlooking the creek, or inside by the custom dry-stacked stone fireplace. The cabin has 3 bedrooms with an open loft and can accommodate/sleep a maximum of 7 guest.

The three bedrooms have one king, one queen, and one double bed; there is an additional day bed in the loft. The master bedroom and kitchen open onto a large covered porch overlooking the Creek. The living room boasts a tongue and groove vaulted ceiling that is highlighted by a dry-stacked native-stone fireplace. Pets are NOT permitted or smoking.

There is a 3 night minimum and total quote includes rent, cleaning, trash removal and taxes. A reservation deposit equal to 50% of the total rental amount is due to confirm the reservation. The remaining balance is due no later than 7 days prior to arrival, or the full amount can be paid in advance if you choose. A full refund is available for cancellations 60 days in advance. Payments can be made by credit card through HomeAway or PayPal or by check or money order by direct mail.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Whittier, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
