Escape to the Relaxing Sounds & Scenes of Nature in This Historic Cabin Retreat

This luxurious, one-bedroom cabin is located on a private, cascading stream. Tucked into a luscious forest, it's the perfect place to escape to the wilderness. Enter the home on the ground level with a warm, rustic feel. The kitchen, living room, and luxury bath are located on the main level and the private upstairs queen suite is complete with an elegant river rock and slate feature shower. Be sure to open the doors and windows and take in the naturally cool temperatures and relaxing sounds of the stream.

Robbinsville, North Carolina is located in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountain Region of the southern Appalachian Mountains. Known for it's diverse species of flora and fauna, the region is home to Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Slickrock Creek Wilderness Area, Natahala National Forest, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

From Huffman Creek, you're only moments to the secluded waters of Lake Santeetlah. The lake boasts almost an entirely undeveloped shoreline with 75% being home to National Forest. With a restricted number of residences, the quiet lake is ideal for boating, fishing, swimming, and any of your favorite water sports. Boat and Jet Ski rentals are available throughout the spring and summer seasons.

Take a short drive to Highway 129 and take on the adventure of driving the 'Tail of the Dragon.' The world-renowned road is a challenge even for the greatest road warriors with 318 curves in just 11 miles. Continue on your journey and loop back around to Huffman Creek on the Cherohala Skyway, which winds through mountaintop ridges of the Cherokee National Forrest. These views are certainly something to write home about. Be sure to bring your camera!

For the history buffs, you're just a short drive to Cherokee, North Carolina, home to the eastern Band of the Cherokee Tribe. Try your luck at Harrah's Cherokee Casino or visit one of the many restaurants, shops, and museums.

Embrace your inner adventurer and head down the Nantahala River. Featuring a combination of Class II and III rapids, there is something for the novice and full-on adrenaline junkie. Be sure to contact one of the multiple rafting companies in Bryson City to schedule your full day of adventure. Between white water rafting, zip-lining, mountain biking, and horse back riding, you'll be ready to relax when you arrive back at Huffman Creek.

Enjoy the quieter side of your stay just steps outside of your door. Take a nap by the private river while you enjoy friends and family fishing for trout.

There is certainly nothing more therapeutic than curling up in your cabin during the occasional afternoon rain or warming up by your private fire and enjoying the modern convenience of a twilight movie.

Head down to the fire pit for an evening of stories, laughs, good eats, and of course, smores.

Huffman Creek's private residence offers an abundance of opportunity for the culinary enthusiast to prepare a quick picnic to take along for the day's hike or a full feast to celebrate a day of outdoor fun and relaxation.

Take a trip down a few winding gravel roads for an escape from the complexities of the daily grind and an opportunity to reconnect with nature. A trip to the Hemlock Cabin at Huffman Creek will revitalize the senses and relax the soul.

About Hunter Turner

Since 1986 our family has been escaping to the mountains of Robbinsville, North Carolina to reconnect with nature, explore, and of course create lifelong memories with our family. We have hiked every trail, taught our two boys to fish here, and shared endless gatherings with family and friends. Every season offers an exciting new set of adventures and scenery. The winter snow, spring wild flowers, summer trout, and fall leaves are just the beginning of what you can expect to find. We invite you to come create memories, share new adventures, and take in the sights and sounds of this nature escape.

Hunter Turner purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Hunter Turner chose Smoky Mountains

After vacationing here as a child, we knew this was an experience we wanted to share with our children. Over the years, we searched for the perfect mountain home only to create our own private escape of several residences. Today we own four mountain homes in Robbinsville and look forward to sharing them with you, your family, and friends.

What makes this cabin unique

When you arrive at the Hemlock Cabin on Huffman Creek, it may take you a few minutes to unwind. Grab your favorite book, head to the porch, hammock, or stream, and prepare for a trip of pure relaxation. Our favorite thing to do is prepare a 'breakfast extravaganza' for early risers. Prepare a pile of pancakes for those morning lovers and let the rest stay snuggled in bed. Best of all, by the time those morning-lovers wrap up, the rest of us are about ready for a day of hiking, exploring, and sometimes napping. It's just the perfect size cabin to stay snuggled together or escape for a bit of privacy. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail on the front porch in the rockers that we are certain epitomize relaxation.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here; the cabin is cozy and beautifully decorated, obviously done with care. Listening to the sound of the stream down the hill while rocking in the chairs on the front porch, in the middle of the forest was heaven to us.

(Be sure to stop in at Thunder Mountain General store and ask Ken for some tips on the best local spots to sightsee!)

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Great cabin; hazardous driveway.

  • 4 of 5

This really great cabin is 20-25 minutes away from town/connectivity. The driveway to get to it is steep and hazardous - don't try it without 4wd, really. We did, mistake. Also, the fireplace doesn't draw well so plan to use the outdoor firepit for that. Otherwise, terrific - peaceful, pretty, well-kept. Lots of great hiking nearby.

Exquisitely beautiful retreat surrounded by gorgeous waterfalls and streams.

  • 5 of 5

I spent two nights at this wonderful cabin. It was so cozy. My husband and I brought our fly rods and fished along the banks. I also spent several hours snapping pictures of the surrounding forest. We were provided logs to use in the fireplace and spent the evening sipping champagne on the couch watching the fire. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals and the huge bathtub was luxurious. We would rent this again without a doubt.

Get awaykyway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We got there in the evening before dark which helped us find the cabin easier. It was everything that we were looking for. We got the cold weather we were hoping for along with a great show of the fall leaves. I highly recommend this cabin to antone. Everything that we needed was there except our clothes and food. They even had coffee and sweetener. Make sure that if you stay here, take the Skyway. You will not regret the trip.
