About the Property

4 BR, 1 Loft, 4 BA, Sleeps 12

This hand-drawn, custom log cabin fulfills every family and mountaineer’s dream vacation.

Built above a rapid stream and overlooking a stunning ridge near Whiteside Mountain (home of the highest sheer cliffs in the Eastern U.S.), this three-level rustic home hosts four bedrooms (one king, two queens and two twins) with a loft (two twin SS), library (one twin SS) and one Queen SS in the Great Room; as well as four-baths (three claw-foot tubs with showers, master has separate tiled shower and guest has tiled stall shower). When was the last time you experienced a wall-mounted, pull-chain, toilet tank? You will at Shadow's Creek, all toilets are replicas of that by-gone era! This lodge is beautifully decorated throughout with countless vintage antiques and gorgeous bespoke furniture.

Just because you’re surrounded by nature, doesn’t mean you have to rough it. Enjoy all the modern conveniences of home, including washer/dryer, dishwasher, central air conditioning/heating, ceiling fans, land-line telephones with nationwide free calling, Dish satellite TV (186 channels), Wi-Fi internet, a DVD player, and VCR with a VHS video library (yes, people still have those…we did say the house had antiques).

Go beyond standard amenities with our loaded game room, complete with flat-screen smart TV, billiards, air hockey, ping-pong, Foosball, cards (poker, War or 21, anyone?) and chess/checkers! So throw some logs in either of the home’s two stack stone fireplaces and cherish time with friends and family or snuggle up to watch your favorite flick - whether it be a blast from the past, an all-time classic or the latest film you’ve been wishing to see.

In the mood for watching something not on a screen? Take a walk outside on the cabin’s large covered decks. Breathe in the fresh air and take in the luscious forestry surrounding our nearly 3-acres of property. At night, gaze out at one of the starriest skies that would leave even Vincent van Gogh star-struck. With the home itself elevated up 3,800 feet, there are no city lights obstructing your view. Find every constellation and maybe even catch a falling star.

For the iron chef in you, our fully-equipped gourmet kitchen meets even the most ardent culinary demands. Cook Southern favorites like grits, fried okra, pulled pork or chicken and waffles. Go a little more traditional with staples like skillet-seared steak, pizza, pancakes, eggs and bacon. If worldly cuisine is more your pace, the double-oven and Daco 6-burner gas cooktop island can take on even the most complex recipes: from paella to pierogis, from “fish n’ chips” to miso salmon, from gyros to falafel…or maybe keep it simple with wild blackberries you can pick right outside and toss into a fresh salad! Better yet, share a special moment with your kids, or become one yourself, and make some S’mores in the backyard fire-pit.

To build up that appetite, get back to nature and escape the hustle and bustle of the “real world”. Venture out into the great outdoors and rough it in the woods on your own camping expedition. Though be careful, “this is bear country”! Hike upstream to a nearby waterfall or visit the numerous other falls in the surrounding area, including Whiteside Falls; the highest falls in the eastern U.S.

Thrill-seekers, dare to cliff dive into a natural pool, or take a tamer glide down a natural water slide at “Sliding Rock” (call for directions to these secret local spots). Just want to take a cue from The Eagles and "take it easy"? Play a round of golf at the Historic High Hampton Inn or rent a pontoon boat out on Lake Glenville to do some fishing or inter-tubing.

If you long for a little bit of society, the quaint town of Cashiers is only 5.5 miles away! Sip a coffee at Buck’s Coffee Cafe (a personal favorite) or stock-up on supplies at the local Ingles grocery store.

If you’re interested in renting this beautiful dream home or have any questions what-so-ever, please do not hesitate to contact us! Kindly note, however, in order to maintain the cabin and keep it in the best condition for you and your fellow guests, we ask you to not bring your pets (no pets allowed) and to please no smoking (it is a house made completely of wood after all). Thank you for your consideration!

Should you decide stay at Shadow's Creek (named after our beloved Black Labrador Retriever, "Shadow"), kindly leave a review on VRBO/HomeAway to tell us about your stay! Thank you!

Manager info

About: Our cabin was built in 2000 - from clearing the land, to watching our 765 foot deep fresh spring water well be drilled - it was a huge project. It took over two years to build!

Why Cashiers, NC, USA:
Living in Florida - lakes were not appealing to us - a rapid creek is exactly what we wanted - and got with this propety!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This is an "Authentic" LOG CABIN "Hearing" the beautiful rapid creek, is so soothing. Walk into the cabin and leave the hectic pace of life outside the front door...
