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.

The home's setting is picturesque as the home sits on 9 beautiful acres and there is a forest surrounding the home that is host to deer turkey and other wildlife. There are two other small Tiny House cabins on this 9 acre property. They are rentals as well and are situated a good distance away from the cabin and the outdoor spaces all face opposite directions to optimize privacy. You’ll also have easy access to everything the Great Smoky Mountain region has to offer, including opportunities for hiking, biking, horseback riding, boating, fishing, white-water rafting, shopping, dining, sightseeing and more. 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.

About Michelle Shelby Spinneweber
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 Michelle Shelby Spinneweber chose Almond
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!
What makes this Cabin unique
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!

Very comfortable small house in a great location.
We really enjoyed our stay here.
A wonderful family getaway!
We loved the Firefly Haven home. Cute, cozy, comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. Hot tub, fireplace, and swing bed were my favorites. Great for the kids to get outside and just play. Was sad to say goodbye but plan to visit again.
“ Sweet Country Charm “
This home and location reminded me of something that would be in a book! It’s property and landscape have the perfect country setting. The home has so much sweet country charm, a place that you don’t want to leave. The only thing missing is the farm.
A beautiful, relaxing haven!
Cozy and Secluded
Thank you for providing such a comfy home for our vacation. Everything we expected was provided. It was warm, cozy, and very quiet. We enjoyed spending time in the Nantahala Forest and seeing so many beautiful waterfalls. Bryson City was a short drive away and has many interesting shops and restaurants. We would love to visit again and see the area during a different season. Highly recommended!
Short but sweet
We only had a few days for a Fall break but this little spot was perfect. Cozy, clean and has everything you need. We had a day of rafting and the boys got a little fishing in.
The cottage is just 15 minutes to both Nantahayla Outdoor Center, white water rafting, horseback riding, Bryson City, Great Smokey Mountain Railroad, Tsali, and Great Smokey Mountain National Park. Cherokee with it's casino and many activities is only 30 minutes away. Deals Gap and Tail of the Dragon is only 25 minutes away.
