The cottage has easy access as it is off of a flat road that is mostly paved and part gravel. There is ample parking that is suitable for all vehicles and motorcycles. After a fun day of outdoor recreation, have a soothing soak in the home’s private hot tub or gather around the fireplace in the family room with your travel companions. You won’t have to miss the basic conveniences of a home while staying here – This home comes with its own washer and dryer plus a fully equipped kitchen, and gas grill so you can make yummy home-cooked meals while on vacation.

The home's setting is picturesque as the home is carved into a hillside with 9 beautiful acres and there is a forest surrounding the home that is host to deer turkey and other wildlife.

The Nantahala National Forest and Lake Fontana, the Fontana Dam and the Great Smokey Mountain Railway are some of the many favorite things to do that are super close to the cabin.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My husband George and I purchased this lovely farm in 2014 to compliment our other vacation rental in the area and to have a place to bring our horses when we come up to visit. I go by Shelby. I love to travel and adventure . I also like to write, read, eat really good food in really nice or really unusual restaurants, and listen to all kinds of music (country, jazz, blues, classical, old rock) I appreciate a finely crafted cocktail and prefer 'top shelf'. My husband likes to hunt and spend time in the 'man cave'. My husband and I have 9 horses (mostly quarter horses) and we like to trail ride at the beach and numerous state parks. We are fans of camping. I work full time as a realtor in NE Florida and I specialize in St. Augustine which is the oldest city in the US! My husband is an Agricultural Officer. In early life I grew up on 40 acres in Pennsylvania. I moved to S. Florida in the 80's and now live near St. Augustine, FL. My husband traveled all over the country before calling St. Augustine home. We love having two homes in the Smokey Mountains in NC and are thrilled that we can share the joy of these special places with our guests!

Why the Owner Chose Almond, NC, USA:
My husband and I used to walk by this farm regulary when we would stay at our other vacation home and say wouldnt that be nice to have someday. And then one day there was a for sale sign in the yard and the rest is history. We love the acreage, So much room, so much privacy, so much beauty! We enjoy the sound of the creek as it slowly meanders through the property and we love to see the wildlife as it appears. We were also very sold on the easy access and the convenience of the location to all the area's ammenities and activities!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Super close to NOC, Lake Fontana, Smokey Mountain Railroad. Super easy access on a paved road and gravel road with plenty of room to park vehicles and or a boat. Really quiet and peaceful setting but so close to so many wonderful things to do!
