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 Smoky Mountains

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.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful week with the family in celebration of my 40th birthday. The property is quiet, relaxing, and beautiful. We slept to the sound of the creek and hiked to the nearby waterfall (which is essentially a private waterfall, I hiked there 5 times during the week and never saw another human being). The cabin is located in Andrews, NC, a little town in the mountains at the south end of the Nantahala Gorge (about 30 miles north is Bryson City, the north end of the Gorge). There is an Ingles in town and there is a Wal-Mart in nearby Murphy so you can stock up the cabin with groceries and get any supplies you need. With the game cabin, creek, fire pit, hot tub, you may not want to leave the cabin at all. The front porch overlooking the creek was a wonderful place for coffee in the morning. One day I rented a solo inflatable kayak (a "duck") at one of the several outfitters on the Nantahala River. It was an 8 mile downriver trip, the outfitter provides everything, and the cost is minimal. We did horseback riding as well. My daughters were enamored with the two dogs that live at a house down the road. They would walk over and visit periodically and they really know the area. They joined me on most of my hikes to the waterfall, almost like they were checking on me, making sure I was OK. It was very cute. We didn't get cell phone service at the cabin but the cabin has wi-fi and the signal was great so we were all set. The cabin was wonderful. We have absolutely no complaints, it was a fantastic trip.

Luke and I chose this cabin for our honeymoon!!! The decor is beautiful and we loved the game cabin! The creek is amazing, we love the outdoors so this place was perfect. The waterfall was beautiful and super close to the cabin! The porch was a great place to just sit and listen to the creek. We loved everything about this cabin! But what I loved most was probably the two dogs that visited us everyday! (Jake and Macy) They kept guard which was really nice. We felt like nothing was getting past those dogs lol! Sandy thank you so much for opening up your cabin to us! We plan to come back on one of our anniversaries!! If you want a beautiful, peaceful place to stay, this is your cabin!

Great cabin surrounded by the beauty of nature!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation in Andrews, NC. The cabin was nice and spacious. The surrounding area was absolutely stunning! We loved the 10 minute hike to the waterfall and the adventure through the stream back to the cabin.

The game house was great! We played pool and cards each night. It was a great little vacation. Very relaxing.

Great relaxing place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Wilderness Resort Cabin, beautiful, clean cabin with many things to do. We really enjoyed having camp fires at night, taking a hike to the water falls and the kids enjoyed the game room. It is also only 5 min from town. We will definitely stay again.

Beautiful setting, tucked in the base/side of a mountain along a babbling brook, clean, authentic cabin decor, the game room/bar was perfect for a rainy day, 10 min hike to an impressive waterfall, we LOVED it!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home and game room cabin were wonderfully decorated and had all the modern conveniences we needed. Wifi, land line, sound systems, T.V., etc. we had an issue with the bridges(3) to the waterfall being washed away(or close to it). So we couldn't get to the waterfall. The owners quickly came and built all new bridges! Fantastic! We highly recommend this propert and would love to return. 6 stars 1 xtra for the wonderful attention given by the owners. THANK YOU!!!!!
