Property description

Silver Creek Retreat is nestled in the Nantahala mountains and 12 miles from the Entrance to the Smokies, Our cabin offers comfort, quietness and fresh mountain spring drinking water. Centrally located in Western North Carolina near Sylva, Dillsboro, Waynesville, Maggie Valley, Bryson City, Cherokee, Franklin and Whittier, there are fun activities and great dining for all tastes and ages. The cabin has central air and heat, a washer that also dries your clothes, A beautiful creek is across the road, A private small waterfall and pond on property, hiking trails are nearby without driving, and a peaceful front porch with hardwood rocking chairs makes our cabin a special place to stay. Fully equipped kitchen has all the dishes and cooking utensils needed should you want to cook at home. Direct TV and a stocked library of DVD movies for those that want to stay home. Come visit, enjoy.


Information Guide: We have assembled a binder with information about the fun activities, restaurants, places to visit based on our own experiences. This binder also tells you all about the cabin and how everything works. We will meet you at the cabin to make sure the accommodations are what you expected and to answer any questions you might have about the area or our cabin.

Dine in our Dine out: Many of our guests think they have to dine out all the time until they realize they would rather stay home at our cabin for many meals and just relax. The cabin has been our second home for years so it is equipped with everything you need to make as many meals as you like. It does not have a dish washer or garbage disposal as we felt that they did not belong in a rustic in the woods cabin.

Our Pet Policy: Many of our guest like to travel with their pets. We welcome pets but have learned some people over extend that welcome. We have had some trouble with mulitple large dogs that are not controlled by their owner. There are many places in the great out of doors for dogs to get very dirty. After one guest left we were cleaning up the cabin for an entire day because of the dirt, silt, hairs and stuff we could not even identify. We have had to modify our pet policy. If you bring a large dog or dogs, we would prefer that they be kennelled when left alone in the cabin. Small dogs never seems to be a problem as they do not wander off into the woods getting covered with 'who knows what'. If you bring a large dog that you cannot or do not wish to control, & you do not clean up after the mess it makes, we will have to charge you an extra cleaning fee or even damage charges. We have learned from our experience that large out of control dogs can actually cause damage to our nice clean cabin.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We lived for 30 years on the West Coast of Florida. We came up to the mountains for a vacation and fell in love with the area and the people. We used our cabin as our vacation spot until we finally moved just two miles down the road from the cabin.

Why the Owner Chose Whittier, NC, USA:
We had visited the Sylva/Dilllsboro/Cherokee/Bryson City area on a vacation and were looking for a cabin to purchase so we could frequently visit the area. A few months after visiting the area a realtor sent us a picture of the cabin. We fell in love with it and purchased it. We stayed in our cabin often and left it just the way we had it when we stayed there. Beautiful pictures on the wall and lots of other fun decorations that make the inside as comfortable as the outside is beautiful.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Most of our guests love the very quiet setting for Silver Creek Retreat and sitting on the front porch feeling the breeze. We have been told the cabin has a magical feeling of serenity. Come and see for yourself.
