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).

We offer a LE/Military discount as well as a returning guest discount. Please contact us for details.

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.

The Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful weekend with my Nephew. A great landing spot for so many outdoor activities. We went for the fishing and this spot is so accessible from many streams and lakes. Take a canoe or kayak and be sure to paddle Lake Santeetlah and Calderwood... heaven. For fishing: too many streams to mention. And the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Park, very near, is quite a special place, especially if you have time to schedule an overnight on one of the trails.

This was my second stay in this cabin... always spotless and picturesque. Hang up the cell phones (not an option) and enjoy the lush forest and beautiful stream out the front door. The Owners go to great lengths to assure comfort while you visit... down to fine details.

I hesitate to give a great review, but only because I'd like to keep this my secret...

A beautiful quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I stayed here during the Christmas holidays! It was so nice & relaxing! We enjoyed hearing the sound of the creek flowing & our fire pit at night. The cabin was lovely decorated for Christmas & had a lot of personal touches. It was very clean & had everything we needed. The family of this property were very kind & prompt in responding. We also love the location being in between the two lakes. We will surely be returning during the summer & bring our jet skis!!! Thank you Laura & Payton for letting us make our Christmas memories here at your cabin this year!!

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Owners are so nice! Place is spotlessly clean! You can hear the stream at night thru the the grid and loved no phones or emails to deal with.. you can drive a little bit and pick up cell service but we loved the time spent here playing board games and roasting marshmallows by the fire! We will be back! Thanks

Can I give this place more than 5 stars??

  • 5 of 5

I'm a little late here on my review, however this is a place to remember. Many great amenities perfectly in tune with the surroundings, such as grill, firepit. Fully stocked everything - kitchen, wood for firepit, etc. Games for kids, comfortable beds.. Best of all - no cell or WiFi - so you can be almost completely off of the grid (there is a land line). We stayed here (family of 4, twin 4 year olds at the time) over the Christmas 2016 holiday. It was in the low 70's on Christmas day! So, we grilled out, went hiking on the Yellow creek trail to the little waterfall. Kids had fun and got to see the Biltmore / Tree lighting on Christmas eve.
