Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

If you're looking for a mountain/lake getaway, our peaceful retreat has something for everybody: outdoor adventure and fishing, quaint mountain towns to explore, and R & R in a beautiful setting. Days spent in our cozy 1910 lake cabin are guaranteed to take you back to a simpler time and rejuvenate your spirit.

Our cabin sits on the shores of spectacular Lake Logan. It is on North Carolina 215, a National Forest Service Heritage Scenic Byway which climbs alongside a beautiful stretch of the upper West Fork of the Pigeon River towards the Blue Ridge Parkway. Lake Logan is a crystal clear mountain gem which lies in a pristine valley. Our secluded cabin is currently the only building on our side of the lake and sits on a 40 acre tract subdivided into 4 lots and surrounded by forest service land. We share our roads and dock with three neighbors, only one of whom lives in town. We are also neighbors with the 300 acre Lake Logan Episcopal Center. Most of its campus is just up the road from us. Part of their property includes 5 cabins across the lake from us which provide reassurance that we're not totally isolated. Once an exclusive retreat for Champion Paper Company executives, Lake Logan, a 90 acre lake, is one of the most beautiful mountain lakes on the East coast and is completely surrounded by forest service land. Motorized boats are prohibited. So come soak up the serenity of God’s glorious gifts in this mountain sanctuary. Watch the sun set from the dock on Lake Logan after a day of fishing. The lake offers excellent fishing for trophy trout and bass, bluegill, crappie and perch. It is only open to guests of the conference center and us. You can relax in the swing on the covered porch, open the windows and fall asleep to the sound of the creek, or simply enjoy a cup of coffee and a good book free from distractions. Children will enjoy playing in the creek next to the cabin, swimming from the dock and paddling around in the jon boat or kayak. We've enjoyed spotting wildlife from the cabin and on the lake. We have a resident bald eagle. We've seen deer, wild turkeys, otter and beaver. The lake is home to geese, ducks, kingfishers, and heron.

Thousands of acres of Wilderness area surround the Lake. The Blue Ridge Parkway, the Sunburst swimming hole and a multitude of waterfalls and hiking trails are right next door. We're minutes from the highest points along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Extensive shopping & dining are only 15 minutes away in downtown Waynesville. The historic Biltmore House or eclectic Asheville is only 40 minutes away. Perfect for a romantic getaway, celebration of a special day, or a family vacation.

Although our cabin was built in 1910, it was completely renovated (in 2011) with all the modern conveniences, but period architecture (leaded glass windows, hard wood floors and bead board ceilings and walls) and furnishings remain. We have paid particular attention to craftsmanship and details inside and out, and worked to preserve the integrity of the period and mountain setting. The cabin has an open floor plan, large kitchen, two bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, chest of drawers, and comfortable reading chair, as well as a full size closet for your belongings. The second bedroom also has a queen-size pillow top bed , dresser, and armoir. The sectional sofa in the den can be used to sleep 2 additional people. The second bathroom is off the den and has a shower and vanity with mirror.

The large living area is a combination kitchen/dining/living room and has great views of the wooded areas surrounding the home. The living room is accented with a gas log heater and comfortably furnished with a sectional sofa and television with DVD player. A windowed door opens to the front porch that overlooks the lake. From there you can view activity on the lake and the dock or grill your favorite foods.

The kitchen is fully equipped and in keeping with the period of the house. It contains an antique refrigerator/freezer and electric stove/oven. The microwave, dishwasher and coffee maker are new. There is also a breakfast bar that seats three and separates the kitchen from the den area. Dishes, silverware, pots, pans, and other cooking utensils are available for your use. The dining table, next to the kitchen, comfortably seats six and has a lake view.

Smoking is not permitted. Pets are allowed for a small additional fee.

Why Dan Smith chose Smoky Mountains

Our cabin on Lake Logan is a dream come true. We have always wanted to have lake front property, but never imagined we'd find just what we were looking for so close to home. When four lots on Lake Logan went up for sale, we jumped at the opportunity because it had everything we were looking for: seclusion, fishing and boating on a beautiful lake which doesn't allow motorized boats and rarely has anyone else on the lake, a creek and mountain views.

Great getaway!

Wonderful place to stay when you want some peace and quiet away from it all. Plenty of room and enough space for two couples and their dogs. Thanks Dan for your hospitality!

Relaxing getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. I would not recommend for hotter months as there is no AC. There are a lot of windows with screens though and ceiling fans throughout the house. The grill is charcoal and is located down the steps just off the front porch. It's a very short walk across the road to the shared dock. The water is crystal clear and the fish are abundant. This is a jewel in the mountains of WNC.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The cabin is air conditioned, but we remove the unit during the winter months for the improved view out of the back of the cabin. We put it back in on Memorial day weekend for the summer. We're sorry if you were too warm during your stay. The cabin usually stays cool, even in the hotter months, but we have air conditioning for the few times it is needed.

Great fishing and surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

If you need constant Internet connection to do anything other than occasionally check email, then pick another place; however, if you want to fish and relax by a beautiful lake in a wonderfully restored cabin, then this is a perfect home. It was just the right size for the two of us with all of our fishing gear. Dan, the owner, is very friendly and helpful.

Paradise Twice

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we stayed at the cabin and it was every bit as wonderful as the first. The reviews are impeccable but they still can't do this place justice. The weather was great, the hiking trails and fishing are fantastic, and the privacy is unheard of for a place that is so easily accessible. The cabin is clean and comfortable and offers a great opportunity to reconnect with nature and the friends and family that join you. A nearly perfect getaway.

Lake, stream and view = awesome property

  • 5 of 5

Loved fishing on the lake! We caught many fish. Loved the noise of the stream at night. The porch was a great place to relax and the kitchen was easy to cook in. The fireplace was nice at night while relaxing in the den. Cons: I don't think the home has ac but we didn't need it. The street in front of the home is a danger to young children as people drive very fast on it. The grill is not covered so you get wet if you grill in the rain. Bring kids dvds as there are only a few and there is only one tv in the cabin. This was not a problem for us because we used the redbox at ingles and downloaded some movies before coming. The internet is slow but does work. All in all, we had a great time..saw elk in Maggie valley, hiked mouse creek falls, went to pretty place, ate at the sweet onion (great mushroom ravioli) and got some neat candy at the mast general store. We had a blast!

Owner's Response: The cabin is air conditioned by a large window unit, which is able to easily cool the entire cabin. We usually remove it during the winter months to improve the view from the back of the cabin. We're sorry if you got too warm!

Beautiful mountain escape!

  • 5 of 5

I do not even want to give a review of this property because I would love it to be a well kept secret! If you love to fish, relax, be surrounded by beauty, and have complete privacy then this is the property for you! We stayed for four days and over that time, I caught 66 fish! (using just a worm and a hook) My husband caught probably about 20 and had the biggest catch--a beautiful trout that weighed about 4-5 pounds! The cabin is immaculately clean and sweetly quaint--furnished with pieces that fit the cabin’s original age, but that function perfectly. We are definitely returning to

this property if we get the opportunity!
