About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Amazing ! Cozy mountain cabin on beautiful, clear, rocky and picturesque mountain stream with 'Central Air'.

Miles of easy hiking just out front door. National Forest across road. Heavily wooded and natural environment. One and one-half miles to the famous 'wild and scenic' Chattooga River which offers excellent trout fishing and local Sliding Rock. Nothing in the world beats good pan-fried trout. There are lots of great hiking trails close-by...

* Main Level: Two Bedrooms (one queen and one pair twin beds), full bath, open living area w/BIG flat, screen TV, dining room, and kitchen (completely and well-furnished).

* Upper Level: Master Bedroom (Queen) and full bath.

* Large covered porch area with plenty of seating surrounded on three sides by mountains... Read or just relax while sipping on your coffee or drink... Cashiers gets a good bit of rain and there is nothing like sitting on the covered front porch curled up with your favorite book while listening to and watching the rain. Enjoy lounging on deck in back with patio set, lounge and very comfortable chairs.

Come, relax and unwind!!! Wade or fish the clear, cold mountain stream... Explore waterfalls, hike the trails to enjoy the natural environment of this area. Listen to the soothing, tumbling waters of the nearby stream, absorb the wildlife sounds of the mountain evenings! This is vacationing at it's finest! You will not be disappointed...

Just five miles to downtown Cashiers, NC. Ten miles to Highlands. Both have many beautiful golf courses, first-class restaurants, antique shops, and boutique shops. For those of you who like to test Lady Luck, it is but a short hour's drive to the Casinos at Cherokee, NC. Beyond Cherokee is Gatlinburg, TN which is approximately another hour away. Both are wonderful scenic drives.

If comparing rates PLEASE consider VERY CAREFULLY. We have ALL taxes and cleaning requirements INCLUDED in our quoted rates. NO HIDDEN COSTS !

Keywords: Mountain Cabin - very private, serene and peaceful. Across from National Forest.

About The Owner

privately owned great get-away in beautiful nature-filled cabin on clear, rocky, mountain stream.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1993

Why The Owner chose Smoky Mountains

Beautiful setting, great stream, privacy, national forest across street and hiking right out the front door. We looked for this perfect piece of heaven for more than 5 years. It had everything we were looking for... privacy, natural setting, heavily wooded and bold stream, yet close to downtown Cashiers and Highlands, both with grocery stores, lots of restaurants and unique shopping experiences.

What makes this cabin unique

Peacefulness, getting away from our hectic day-to-day lives. Beautiful setting with scenic hiking close by. Chattooga River (A designated, Wild and Scenic River) is less than 1 1/2 miles away. Lots of waterfalls, fishing and beautiful golf courses nearby. Favorite hikes: Whiteside Mountain, unique Granite City and the one right out the front door down the hardly traveled road.

A great cabin - secluded yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Our son lives nearby in Cullowhee and we were lucky to find this delightful cabin to spend a few days visiting him. It had everything we needed and was very clean. We hope to visit again.

Great getaway location

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to book a stay through iTravex for this great mountain cabin. It is charming and comfortable, secluded but within 10 minutes of the town center of Cashiers. Wi-fi is included. It is convenient to the most amazing waterfalls east of the Mississippi. We wanted for nothing but more time there. Thanks!!

Log Cabin Charm At Its Finest!!!

  • 5 of 5

First off, we have to say that the owners of this property are so wonderful to work with... the communication, recommendations, and helpful notes about the cabin itself and the surrounding areas were top notch! Thank you!

The kitchen was fully stocked, they have everything you could need and more! The little stream in the back of the property was lovely, that was our 8 year olds hangout! It is peaceful and soothing and we are all missing it. Even the neighbors were pleasant and friendly! You truly feel like you are surrounded by and wrapped up in all of the beauties that nature has to offer... We are grateful for our time there. The cabin was darling and perfect! Exactly as described. Looking forward to returning again quite soon!!

Cabin deep in the woods with peaceful stream.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our restful time at the cabin with the stream. Very refreshing!!

It seemed far off the beaten path, but only under 5 miles from town and easy back route to Highlands. Cashiers sliding rock was only down the road and lots of fun too!

The cabin provided us with everything we needed with peace, lots of space, and time for unwinding after hiking the mountains.

The only disappointment was the cleaning prior to our arrival was poor. Only one toilet roll in one bathroom, and half in another. No soap in the dispensers! And floors in bathroom were not cleaned. BUT after we dealt with the problem, we soon forgot it happened and enjoyed ourselves. We would go again, great location and quiet. Neighbors were pleasant and talkative.

We have changed cleaners and have stressed the importance of our guests arriving to find the cabin better than expected and thoroughly cleaned. If anything is found otherwise, please, please, please, notify us immediately so that we can address the problem. Thank you

Great retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

Nice vacation spot. Great location for hiking--Whiteside Mountain--and sightseeing--Whitewater Falls. Stream on property a plus. Fell asleep each night listening to the stream. Had to decide each morning whether to have coffee on front porch or by the stream.

Cabin was clean and comfortable equipped for all kitchen needs and TV/internet. I would recommend to the owner to update mattress and bed linens in main bedroom.

Lots to do in the area and I would return and recommend to others.Easy to find and how many places in America can you enjoy coffee outside and never hear a vehicle. Great value.

Owner holds the damage deposit and returns promptly.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gary for bringing the mattress issue to our attention. We never sleep on the mattress upstairs so was unaware how the mattress slept. We have purchased a new "Marriott" mattress set and plan on taking it up this weekend. Please hurry back and try it out as we plan to ourselves. Thank you once again. Jacquelyn

Sweet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a homey, well kept cabin tucked back into Whiteside Forest. The beautiful surroundings and peaceful sounds of the flowing stream just outside are hypnotizing - we took trips into Cashiers and Highlands, and walks through the forest, just to stir ourselves awake again. Internet was spotty at first but when the tech support were back in the office on Monday they responded immediately and took care of the problem. The owner was very helpful and responsive to our needs, provided lots of notes and recommendations and the property was very well stocked. Our security deposit was returned timely. I would recommend this lovely getaway to anyone who would like to enjoy a stress free escape to nature at it's best.
