Quiet, Relaxing, and Affordable. 2 Bed, 2 Bath Mountain Cabin. Otto, NC.

When you stay here at "My Cabin In The Mountains," you will enjoy a peaceful and relaxing getaway in a quiet and beautiful setting. Surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest, many hiking trails and a number of breathtaking waterfalls are in the immediate area. The cabin is located 2 miles north of Dillard, GA just across the state line in North Carolina. Getting to the cabin is easy as there are no steep mountain roads to navigate. We are exactly one mile off US-441 but still secluded, quiet, and private. We are retired, and we enjoy sharing our cabin with old friends, and new friends. We live just a stone's throw away and we are always available to answer any questions that come up and we're happy to do whatever we can to make your stay here more enjoyable.

Franklin, NC and Clayton, GA are both about 10 miles away (to the North, and to the South), each town providing numerous dining choices, several grocery store choices, antique shops, and more. In addition, both of these townships include 24-hour Walmart store, so no matter what kind of activities you're hoping to enjoy, equipment and supplies will be readily available. And speaking of outdoor activities, our guests tell us how much they enjoy mountain hiking, waterfall exploring, and visiting nearby Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Black Rock Mountain State Park, and quaint Highlands, NC. Just read through some of our most recent reviews, and see if our cabin doesn't sound like the perfect destination for your

planned mountain getaway.

SPECIAL NOTE: To insure the health and comfort of all our future guests, we are not unable to accommodate smokers or pets.

About Sonny or Harvalyn

My wife Harvalyn and I have lived here in the mountains of Western North Carolina for the past 13 years and we love it here. Our cabin is just a short walk from our house so we are always available should you need anything. We would love to have you stay in our cabin if you're planning a trip to this area. Sonny & Harvalyn (828) 524-2538

Sonny or Harvalyn purchased this Cabin in 1999

Why Sonny or Harvalyn chose Smithbridge

Before moving here, we lived in Tallahassee, FL. We would come to this area to visit once or twice a year to visit friends and explore. Like so many Floridians, we got tired of having to end our visits and return again back to Florida. So we said "Goodbye" to FL for good, and became permanent North Carolinians. (Dillard, GA is the nearest town, but we're actually just over the GA/NC state line in NC.)

What makes this Cabin unique

Situated just off of US-441 where GA and NC meet, getting here is very easy; and, most anything you will need while you're here is can be had either in Franklin, NC to the North, or Dillard or Clayton, GA to the South. And of course, there's a multitude of places to go and things to do in and around Rabun and Macon County.

Many local hiking, waterfall, and activity spots nearby. Throughly enjoyed our mountain vacation at this location! Loved "our cabin in the mountains"! Will be back!
