About the property

1 Bed, 1 Bath Cabin on the Water ( sleeps up to 3 ) 900 sq ft including porch

Our cabin sits directly on the Tuckasegee River between Bryson City and Cherokee , 6 miles either way and 20 miles from Western Carolina University. Relax on the covered porch and enjoy the view, hear the sounds of the river as you watch the geese, beavers and egrets and spot the eagle flying ahead. Fish for trout or bring your kayak or tube to launch out of the front yard. Enjoy nightlife at Harrah's Casino nearby for a change of pace. The Smoky Mountain Train runs across the river during season and is especially unique to watch it lit up at night during the Polar Express Run.

Our cabin has a queen size bed in the bedroom, a double size pull out couch in the living area , full kitchen and shower bathroom, including wood floors, vaulted ceilings, flat screen tv, and dvd player.

About Danny and Sharon Schneider

We moved to the area from S. Florida 20 years ago to raise our children here. Danny and his father built this cabin in the lot next door to our house with their own hands as if we would live in it ourselves.

Danny and Sharon Schneider purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Danny and Sharon Schneider chose Whittier

You can see and hear the river constantly and feel secluded although you have access to the highway nearby.

What makes this cabin unique

Awesome views await you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed watching the geese from the front porch and hearing the sounds of the river. We never closed the windows with perfect weather and had morning coffee and dinner on the porch. It was lovely.

An awesome couple retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin itself is amazing, but the view from the porch is the greatest stress reliever of all. We had an amazing time, and hopefully will be able to visit again soon. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is the perfect size. It's small and cozy. As fishermen, we loved being right on the water! It was really neat to see the trains go by right across the river from the cabin. We also loved that it was close enough to Cherokee that we didn't have to drive far but also within a reasonable distance to other cities and attractions. The appliances were up to date and clean. The whole place was charming and well-kept. I thought it would be challenging to stay without wifi but it really wasn't missed and there is a tv with satellite. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend! We hope to come back next year!

Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited this home for our anniversary. Pictures do not do it justice. The cabin is beautifully situated with the river running in the back yard. It is peaceful, beautiful, and so relaxing. The cabin is tastefully decorated and VERY clean! It had everything we needed, and more. Will definitely be going back, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Owner's Response: Thanks Davina. We hope you come back. Glad you had a safe trip home. The pillow sham got wrapped up in a sheet and I found it in the closet after the next guests left. Thanks for looking for me. I knew it would turn up eventually! Happy Holidays.
