Perfect family outdoor getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time here. We loved it so much last fall we came back! Everything about the cabin is awesome. The game cabin adds that extra space for our 13 and 11 year old sons to have their own space and activities. The trail right out the door leads to a beautiful waterfall, and if you feel real adventurous it crosses the creek and goes up the mountain to a beautiful view of Andrews and the surrounding mountains (about 2 miles round trip). The hot tub, fire pit and creek through the property finish off this amazing place! Activities nearby include whitewater rafting and zip lining at NOC, Fontana Dam with access to the Appalachian Trail nearby, a casino, wineries and breweries, and Blue Ridge, GA where there is a fun street with restaurants and shops. All are less than an hour away. Our favorite places right in Andrews are Hoppy Trout Brewery with brick oven pizza and their own craft beer, Scoops Ice Cream right next door where you can make your own concoction, and The Calaboose Winery/Andrews Brewing Company where you can do a wine tasting or have a flight of their craft beers (or both) overlooking their vineyard. I overheard my two sons talking during a hike on the last day about how we really can't ever go anywhere else to stay on an outdoor trip because it wouldn't be as cool as this. My wife and I happen to agree!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our “adults only” weekend! The cabin is in a great spot - very private but close to town as well. The two neighbors dogs were awesome - we enjoyed their company. The game room was a perfect ending to each day - as well as the hot tub. However the hot tub did get off “standard mode” a lot but we were able to get it back with the directions. We couldn’t have asked for a better place! We will be back!

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend getaway to the Wilderness Resort Cabin! We are glad we listened to all of the wonderful reviews. We loved the peace and tranquility of this cabin. It was hard to believe it was so close to town. Our teenage daughter and her friends had a great time too. We loved the short hike to the waterfall and spent many hours in the game cabin playing pool and cards. The cabin was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We live close to Gatlinburg and normally rent cabins there but are so glad we ventured a little farther to this one. We hope to make it back here again soon!

About Sandy Forrister

Being a lifelong resident of this county in Western North Carolina I fully appreciate everything this place has to offer. I feel very privileged to buy this property from the previous owner.

Sandy Forrister purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Sandy Forrister chose Andrews

The prior owner built this place with such a vision of the Smokey Mountains. He constructed this cabin in a using native wood and did a masterful job. From the previous reviews, I knew this would be a wonderful place for families of all ages to relax and have a great time doing a variety of activities to satisfy all ages.

What makes this cabin unique

This is such a good rental cabin because you feel like you are in the midst of the mountains but are only 2-3 miles from the grocery and convenience stores.
