A very secluded creek side cabin within 14 miles of Robbinsville.

Come to “Yellow Creek Cabin” and step back in time while preserving all of the conveniences of home. Located on a private road, you can be sure this is one of the most secluded listings you will find. From the front porch you will enjoy seeing no cars, no homes, and no people while listening to the noisy trout stream that meanders around you. From the family room window you can watch trout rise in Yellow Creek a designated North Carolina trout stream. We are also only minutes away from several hatchery supported waters.

This is a NONSMOKING property. Thank you.

(Please no motorcycles. We have a long gravel drive. We like bikers and wouldn't want any to get injured.)

Our cabin is HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE, all wood, thoughtfully decorated Appalachian style cabin. It has two bedrooms each with queen beds, two full baths, and a queen sleeper sofa. It also offers a large fully covered porch facing the trout stream. Beside the stream there is a fire pit, park style charcoal grill and eating area (kids bring your wading shoes).

Nature Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The vacation at Yellow Creek cabin was great. The cabin is extremely clean and well kept and beautifully decorated. Everything was just as stated in the description. We felt at home the moment we arrived. Use of the creek and campfire was much fun with nice views. Their is a lot of outdoor activities: fishing in Yellow Creek or other creeks/rivers/lakes nearby, hiking (we went on several trails including the AT), the Dragons Tail, Cades Cove, Cherokee Reservation, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, and the Great Smoky National Park, only to name a few (we did them all in a weeks time). Yellow Creek Cabin is a gem in an isolated mountain region, we hope to come back soon.

Magical Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at Yellow Creek Cabin. The cabin was extremely clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. The creek was awesome! The gravel pathways lead to different areas of the creek to enjoy the views. It was so soothing to sit in the swing or one of the nicely placed chairs/benches and listen to the sounds of the water rippling over the rocks. An added bonus was the beautiful rhododendrons that were blooming around the property during our visit. We hiked to Yellow Creek Falls and it was spectacular! We also hiked the Appalachian Trail to the Cable Gap Shelter which brought back memories of when my husband hiked this portion of the trail in the early '70's. Laura and Payton are wonderful people to work with and go the extra mile to ensure their guests enjoy their stay. Yellow Creek Cabin is a magical place and we can't wait to come back again. Thank you, Laura and Payton, for allowing us to share this hidden gem!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love how quiet and secluded the cabin was. My kids enjoyed to creek almost daily. My wife and I enjoyed the fire by the creek every night. The cabin is very clean with everything you need except food. The cabin owners are very nice and easy to contact. We will defiantly be back.

Awesome Relaxing Adventure!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself, along with our 8 and 5-year-old had a spectacular time at Yellow Creek Cabin for a long weekend. Everything is kept extremely clean. We really enjoyed disconnecting from city life and finding some relaxation in the mountains. The location is really close to Bryson City (Great Smokey Mountain Railroad, which the kids enjoyed) and all the great Dams/Waterfalls. The cabin has everything you could want or need including solitude from neighbors and a babbling creek that wraps a majority of the property. There’s a lot of simple touches that make this place one of our favorites, such as stone benches along the creek, pebbled paths, covered swinging seats, the Tree Frog and Owl, an awesome fire pit, and a gas fireplace. The kitchen has everything you need and then some. The linens were of great quality and everything was very comfortable. Entry to this cabin is handicap accessible which was nice considering our 8 year old is in a wheel chair. Payton is super nice and quick to respond. We’ll definitely be back!

A Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed so much our twelve night stay at Yellow Creek! There is absolutely nothing I can complain about. The setting is so beautiful and the the cabin was so clean and decorated beautifully! I was worried due to the drought the creek would not be flowing, but it was and we loved sitting by the creek with a fire, or on the porch listening to the creek. Payton and Laura were always so friendly and helpful throughout the whole rental process. My husband enjoyed trout fishing nearby in the Cheoah River, we visited many antique shops in western NC and enjoyed dining at Tapoco Lodge restaurant by the river. Oh, and be sure and visit Yellow Creek Falls! It was awesome! Thank you again Payton and Laura for your kindness and we will definitely be back!
