About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 comfortably

This cozy cabin offers a treasured panoramic view of the gorgeous Tuckaseegee River. Wake up to the coolness of the Smoky Mountains, drink a hot cup of coffee and let your worries melt away while sitting on the front porch taking in the panoramic views of the Tuckaseegee River. See the fly fishermen casting their fly rods and get ready to cast your own! Not into fishing? There's plenty of other fun activities in this geographical area! We are close to shops offering fishing and water sports including rafting, tubing and kayaking. We're conveniently located within 10 minutes to Dillsboro, Sylva, 30 minutes from Cherokee, Cashiers or Highlands and about 40 minutes from Asheville.

Our smoke-free cabin has a private dock on the river (shared with our neighbor so please be courteous and take back anything you take to the dock). There is also a fire pit next to the dock for late night marshmallow roasting and ghost stories.

The cabin has two bedrooms. One designed to be a master with a king-size bed. The other room has a set of twin beds. The living room holds 2 comfortable couches perfect for relaxing, napping or watching tv. One is large enough for a child to sleep on. The kitchen includes all modern amenities except a dishwasher (here you are the dishwasher). There is a washer and dryer set up.

Everything we wanted and more!!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was Sylva an excellent town but this cabin was absolutely charming. We loved drinking our morning coffee overlooking the river. It was clean, had all the necessities, and we are already planning another trip. If you're thinking of renting, don't hesitate, the owner was quick to respond and answered all of our questions promptly.

Great Cabin and Location

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay. Comfortable and well appointed cottage. Property was directly across from the Tuckaseegee River and conveniently located to other area trout waters. Jill was great to deal with. Looking forward to renting the property again in the future.

Wonderful and close to everything !

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay this past weekend. The cabin was so peaceful and quiet except for the sounds of the river and Canadian geese which was like music to wake up too. The dock for fishing was so nice. I would definitely stay again on my next trip to Cullowhee.

Beautiful River View and Still Close to Town

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is kept well. It is easy to find (with the provided directions) and has very easy access by car. The caretaker lives close by, and is quickly available if there are any questions.

I was attending a conference in downtown Sylva, and when I rented the cabin I was a bit concerned about how long it would take me to get to the location. I did not need to worry. Though the cabin feels secluded, it is only a ten minute drive to downtown, and grocery stores and such are even closer. This makes the cabin a great launching point.

Great Cabin and Location

This cabin was well appointed and had all we needed for a relaxing vacation. The view of the river and mountains was priceless. My husband enjoyed fishing the river while I enjoyed quiet time on the front porch. We hope to return soon.
