Welcome to Log Cabin on Big Creek. You and your family will be very comfortable in our creek-side mountain log cabin located in beautiful Highlands, North Carolina. Our cabin is very unique because it sits right next to a very large creek. From both back porches you look right down into the water. We have high-speed internet with WiFi and BlueRay DVD. You will enjoy our secluded location off a private gravel road. The only sounds you'll hear while sitting in our large screened-in porch are the rushing of water from the creek, wind in the trees, and if you're lucky, a trout reaching for a mayfly. The cabin sits at an altitude of over 3,800 ft. so the temperature is at least 10 degrees cooler than Atlanta and there is relatively little humidity! There are wonderful hikes throughout the Highlands/Cashiers area to be enjoyed year round. After your hike you’ll enjoy a soak in our jetted tub. If you're looking for a pet-friendly vacation, you've come to the right spot. We consider all pets except cats.
No Smoking: We have a strict no smoking policy in the cabin. If you smoke outside the cabin please field strip cigarettes and throw the butts in the garbage.
We are very good about keeping the availability calendar up to date.
Pets: We accept dogs that don't tear-up the house and landscaping, however, there is an additional $50.00 charge, per dog, per stay, for interior clean-up and a $100 refundable deposit. Please do your best to pick-up after your dog outside. Please don't leave your dogs in the cabin unattended for long periods of time. Cats are not allowed under any circumstances as the owner is very allergic! Other pets are okay with prior approval. Finally, although our cabin is pet friendly we are not flea friendly! In consideration of all our renters, please make sure your dogs are free of fleas or you will be charged to get rid of them.
Seasons: There is a lot to do all year round in the Highlands/Cashiers area. Off season can be the best time if you like the many hiking trails all to yourself. Leaf Season is spectacular. We often get snow in the winter to be prepared with a 4-wheel drive or chains.

Beautiful cabin, great area
My self and four teenagers stayed a week and had a great time. The cabin is spacious and warm (we were there for a cold winter week) and well equipped. The area has plenty to do. The owner was great to deal with ...
So glad you had an enjoyable time.
Beautiful home in a tranquil spot
The Keenan home was beautiful - tasteful, rustic decor, extremely comfortable, and in a really prime location with a wonderful, flowing stream just outside of the screened deck. One note of warning: the road to the house from Flat Mountain Rd is deeply rutted, due to some construction activity. Be sure to bring a vehicle with good ground clearance.
I'm so sorry about the condition of the road. Irma took a toll on our private drive. I'm working with my neighbors to have it re-grated.
Nice place good views
House is nice, isolated and quiet, road to cabin was washed out by the recent severe rains so unless it’s repaired you will need a SUV with all wheel or 4 wheel drive to navigate the road.
No TV was expected as owner had let us know that his system was out of commission. When we lost WIFI owner was quickly responsive to assist us in getting WIFI restored.
There was some trash left over in the garage from the previous tenant in but that wasn’t the owners fault as he is not local.
Fabulous Fall Family Reunion :)
Siblings/spouses had a wonderful retreat in this cozy, comfortable creekside setting! The location and accommodations were beyond expectations and we hope to return in the future. The owner, responsive and helpful, was spot-on with recommendations & suggestions for shopping, eating and hiking. Close proximity to Highlands & Cashiers. We enjoyed it all and did not want to leave!
great spot for mountain get away
Cabin was very accommodating and perfect for our family vacation. We would rent again for sure. Porches on the creek are perfect for all meals and family fun times.
This was our second visit to the cabin and we were so happy to return. It is exactly what we picture when we imagine a get away to the mountains. The locations is great - so close to both highlands and cashiers and great hiking. Our dogs love the porches and being able to monitor all the wildlife outside. It's a wonderfully cozy place to visit and we can't wait to go back!
So glad you could come back for a visit, and even happier that we all survived the Irma's wrath.
