Serene mountain home overlooking Big Buck Creek. Enjoy the sounds of a rushing (certified) trout stream and the Nantahala Forest while relaxing on the screen porch or taking a dip in the hot tub. A mountain retreat at high elevation.
Convenient to the Appalachian Trail and many favorite hiking trails (with waterfalls!) for all different skill levels. For shopping, fine dining, scenic drives or even gem mining, you are in the right spot. The owner can make recommendations or suggest an itinerary upon request. Gambling is available in Cherokee. Cashiers, Highlands, and Franklin are all within a short drive where great shopping, dining, arts/crafts, live music, and even summer theater can be found.
Our nicely appointed, comfortable home sleeps 4 adults comfortably in two private suites. Two full sized futons are also available in the loft. The well supplied kitchen, with wine refrigerator, accommodates any gourmet cook. Outdoor grilling with al fresco dining on the deck or screened porch makes every meal special. The interior 18 ft ceilings with exposed timbers and expansive glass doors and windows provide a tree-top mountain experience. Every interior direction brings the outdoors in with the beauty of the hardwoods and mountain laurels. Enjoy a Scandanavian wood burning stove as you relax in the living room. Kiln-dried, seasoned fire wood is provided. The downstairs suite has a wonderful gas fireplace wrapped in the native stone.
The property is located about 2 1/2 hours driving time from Atlanta and only about an hour from Asheville.

About the owner: We are busy professionals in Atlanta, GA and love our get-a-way abutting the Nantahala Forest.
Why the Owner Chose Highlands, NC, USA:
We purchased the Buck Creek property in 2001 when it was an elaborate "Swiss Family Robinson" campsite! The former owners had enjoyed it as such when their children were young. It also sported a small single-wide trailer and a large deck overlooking a beautiful, rushing creek. A few years later we traded the trailer for excavation work and constructed the home of our own design, doing much of the finish work inside ourselves. It was a labor of love and we've enjoyed sharing it with family and friends since our first Thanksgiving in 2003.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
SUMMER: On our mountain it is always at least 10 degrees cooler than Atlanta and there's nothing like the screened porch and hot tub after a summer day hiking. There's a real, old fashioned swimming' hole just a little way up the private road with stone steps leading down to it. AUTUMN: Of course, fall is the busy season as this is one of the top leaf looking areas in the country. WINTER: If you're from an area where it never snows, you're in for a treat. Our private road is gravel and usually passable in all but the heaviest of storms. The State Road is also cleared of snow promptly and well-maintained.
