About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

At this cabin you will find a place to escape stress, enjoy peace and quiet, relax, read, reunite with family or friends, explore nature or just meditate and renew your spirit. Imagine yourself on vacation, on your own private deck, relaxing in a rocking chair or hot tub to the sounds of a flowing mountain creek. The closest cabin to you is 100 yards across the creek and through the trees offering you privacy. At the same time, this cabin is only 8 minutes from downtown Andrews, a small town of 1,600 people that includes quaint craft, artisan and boutique shops, restaurants, a coffee shop, grocery store, drug store and even a local vineyard and winery called Calaboose Cellars.

The drive to the cabin is easy to access by car or by motorcycle. Even if it should snow or ice, this cabin is accessible with a regular front wheel drive vehicle.

Arrival and Check In: Upon your reservation we will send you detailed directions to the Cabin. Our on-site host will make sure the cabin is ready when you arrive, and is available during your stay should you have questions or concerns. We know you will enjoy your stay!

About David Williamson

We are United Methodist pastors at a church in St Augustine and bought this place as our family getaway and investment for retirement.

David Williamson purchased this cabin in 2008

Why David Williamson chose Smoky Mountains

We bought this cabin because it was in one of the most beautiful areas we'd ever seen. It is so peaceful and relaxing to listen to the creek bubbling by and there is something to enjoy during every season.

What makes this cabin unique

We like to relax, spend time with family, enjoy the beautiful outdoors, read a book by the creek, hike local trails, fish for trout, and play in the creek.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We made some updates to the cabin during our stay in August 2010. We replaced the unreliable light over the kitchen sink with one that works all the time. We purchased a new gas grill and two Adirondack style rocking chairs for the deck overlooking the creek. We replaced the aging headrests in the Jacuzzi. And our favorite update is a screen door that allows guests to enjoy the cool mountain air and the sounds of the creek while inside the cabin. Finally, we washed, stained and sealed the exterior deck and cabin so the place looks fabulous. We hope you enjoy your stay!

We had an amazing time at this cabin!!! It was clean, cozy, and comfortable. The mountain creek was so much fun for our kids. It was icy cold with the clearest water I've ever seen!! The cabin is close enough to so many locations. We went to the Smoky Mointains, Cades Cove, Gaitlinburg, Newfoundland Gap (highest point on the range), hiked a part of the Appalachian Trail, Nantahala National Forest with whitewater rafting, Cherokee National Forest with rafting, drove the Tail of the Dragon, and visited the Cherokee Indian Reservation which had a ton to do there. After all that, we still missed out on things to do in the area. I highly recommend this cabin!! Oh, and the beds are great!! This place has it all!!

It was a very special experience in our lives. The home is comfortable, clean... and we enjoyed the balcony just to hear the song of the water, the beautiful view and every thing. Perfect!

Beautiful, quiet!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five really enjoyed the cabin in Andrews! It was everything the pictures said it would be (although I wasn't aware of the other cabins in the valley - they certainly were not noticed). Our three kids (10, 7 & 5) loved playing in the creek! It was so nice to be up on the porch and be able to see them and not be afraid of them being out of sight. We had a bit of rainy weather, but we loved playing the games (Sorry! was a favorite) and putting puzzles together. The cabin had everything we needed and was beautifully stocked with cooking utensils and pots and pans. We used the washer and dryer a few times since the kids went through all their clothes with their numerous trips to the creek! :) It was a beautiful setting and we hope to be back in the future - when the littlest one is big enough to go white water rafting! :) Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!

Lindenhurst, IL

surrounded by the woods outside and the warmth of wood inside

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful setting in the woods was a treat to relax in, and fun to drive in and out of. You even have the option of driving through the stream. And yet you're only 10 minutes from downtown Andrews. Inside is impressive with timber construction and all the comforts and details provided. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Perfect cabin for a quiet getawat

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our long weekend stay. Peaceful area. House was beautiful and well-maintained. Our only suggestion may be new mattress in the master bedroom. Other than that no complaints and are looking forward to booking again in the future.

Cabin by the creek

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice and peaceful, but I think it's been awhile since things have been checked ( cleaned). The ceiling fans had so much dust that when they were turned on some fell onto the beds. Also, batteries were missing from remotes, which I noticed someone had complained about 6 months ago in your guest book.

Our grown children all enjoyed their time there, especially the fire pit and hot tub. Thank you for sharing your cabin.
