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.

Wilderness Resort Cabin With Spectacular Water Fall.
average rating of 4.975 based on 40 reviews

A nice clean cabin with fun amenities, on a wonderfully rare and scenic property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family drove up from Orlando, FL for Spring Break vacation. We were hoping to spend time staying in a nice clean and cozy log cabin near a creek or a place where we could hike, but also not too far from some civilization. The Wilderness Resort Cabin met all our vacation needs and then some. We were in awe just sitting on the porch looking out over the picturesque creek running alongside. Our kids (12 and 16) loved hiking the 10 minute private trail to the waterfall. The nearby downtown (Main Street) of Andrews (5 minute drive) has some nice restaurants including "Hoppy Trout" where we sampled craft beers, root beer floats, and scratch pizza. Nantahala Outdoor Center is about a 25 scenic minute drive cutting through the forest and going towards Bryson City. Along the way we stopped at Wishon's Fishing Hole and met a nice young man who taught us all about the art and science of fly fishing upstream of the Duke Power Dam. We watched rafters come down the river, and also watched amazing free-style kayaking lessons at the NOC. We read books by the fire, lounged in the hammock, played billiards in the game room, and hiked beautiful trails . We also made some home cooked meals in the fully stocked kitchen and slept well in the comfortable beds. The interior fireplaces provided nice warm temperatures in the evenings and a warm ambiance. All in all a great vacation destination and comfortable get away! We can't wait to share this wonderful cabin rental with our friends and family! -The Yao Family

Beautiful, relaxing, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our recent stay. The cabin and game room is clean and updated. The owners thought of everything! We played countless games of pool and cards when it rained. The other days we enjoyed the rushing creek and gorgeous waterfall (my kids actually got in that cold water!). The view from the rocking chairs on the porch is priceless. The hammock and fire pit got regular use too!! Pack your groceries and you'll never need to leave. This is our new peaceful, relaxing getaway.

Wonderful property and cabin

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place for a quiet getaway. There is plenty to do on the property without having to leave during your stay. The hiwaseee and nantahala rivers are close enough to be easy day trips. Would definitely stay here again.

A therapeutic hidden gem in the wilderness.

  • 5 of 5

Cant get over this place. Beautiful scenery, and perfectly secluded. Short hike to our own waterfall. Totally romantic for a couples get away, yet suited for the family as well. We were never disturbed and was furnished with all we needed. Will be back for you sure. Already planning a return trip with friends. If you are needing that get away from work, kids, or whatever, you cannot go wrong by visiting this Wilderness Resort!!!!
