About the property

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

RENOVATIONS PLANNED IN 2018. PLEASE CONTACT VIA "ASK OWNER A QUESTION" BUTTON FOR AVAILABILITY BEFORE REQUESTING TO BOOK.

Enjoy the spectacular views of the beautiful Tusquittee Valley to and from this family-friendly retreat that is secluded, but not remote. It’s easy to find, but really hard to leave. Easy access (no scary drives). The 2 acre property features many flowering trees and shrubs on over 500 feet of cascading Compass Creek. Relax in the front porch swing listening to the birds and rushing water, catch some sun in the meadow, or simply enjoy the crystal clear creek-fed pond just feet from the screened back porch. You just won't find a better Smoky Mountain vacation bargain!

If you're looking for a place to treat Nature Deficit Disorder, this is it! Unplug, Unwind and relax with family and friends.

If you choose to stay at home, you might enjoy the peace and quiet in front of the fire, a board game, or a movie on the surround-sound system. The comfortably furnished central living area is cozy enough for two, yet spacious enough to accommodate large family gatherings.

If you choose to get out and explore, easy walking to moderately strenuous hiking is just outside the door on lovely wooded private roads and foot trails to N.C. and National Forest Lands. You can fish the renowned Tusquittee Creek or canoe the nearby Hiawassee River. A good grocery store, golf courses and popular Lake Chatuge with beach-front picnic areas, playground and boat launches (rentals available) are just minutes away. Take a course at the John C. Campbell Folk School! The area is host to music and craft festivals throughout the year.

Clay County is a great base camp for a variety of memorable day trips: Great Smoky Mountain NP, Joyce Kilmer NF, The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, rafting the Nantahalla, the Smoky Mountain Scenic Railway, etc. Tourist meccas Helen, GA, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge,TN and Cherokee Casino(s) are all withing a couple of hours drive.

Bikers love the scenic and well maintained roads of Clay County and the famed 'Tail of the Dragon' is just an hour away. (The property has plenty of room for your trailer(s).

Other rental properties within walking distance make this an ideal location for family reunions. Great for when you want to be close to friends and family, but not necessarily under the same roof... (Contact information available.)

Each week of spring brings new flowers to bloom (Rhododendron Festival in mid-May). Summers are cool and relaxing. Autumn leaf peeping is a wonder. Winters are generally moderate and always peaceful.

Everything you need is right here at your new 'home away from home'. Once you’ve experienced Compass Creek, you’ll want to return time and again.

So enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, very clean and so very cozy. Could not get enough of the porch. Had breakfast and a few dinners out there, listening to the river next to the fire pit. So relaxing, and beautiful! Great job Tracey and Gary on sharing a very lovely home. We will be back!

Perfect relaxation spot.

  • 5 of 5

Just what we needed to relax, a cabin in a hollow. Everything was as advertised, no unwanted surprises. The pond and fire pit were fun and added to our overall relaxation. Thank you Tracey and Gary for sharing your home.

Perfect nostalgic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here while hiking and white water rafting in the area and was very happy with what we found. The house is tucked back in a valley on a private road with dry little traffic. Perfect for disengaging for a few days, especially with no cell service (house phone was good enough for emergencies).

The house and property were both well maintained and had a more home-like experience than what you would probably find elsewhere. While not having been updated with modernized interior work, the older cabinetry and wood walls gave a very warm and welcoming impression. Fully functioning kitchen was helpful in being able to spend more time there rather than exploring to eat out.

Bonus for the lake in the back and the adjacent fire ring. Great way to end the day sitting out there watching the fireflies.

Working with the Tracy was very easy, as she quickly responded to questions and emails. Definitely easier the some other resources we have tried using in the past.

Only complaint was the limited/slow wireless, but then it turned out to be a good thing since we ended peacefully spending more time outside by the fire.

We had a good time.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was cute and the area was beautiful. It rained most of the time so we didn't get a chance to use the fire pit :( My son and husband enjoyed swimming in the pond (even in the rain)! The one lane road to and from the cabin was a little challenging when another SUV was coming from the opposite direction. Overall a relaxing few days!
