You will love our log cabin with it's two bedrooms, each with it's own tv, two baths, living/dining/kitchen area as a place to relax after hiking, trout fishing, seeing the sites and the many other adventures the area provides. While on scenic drives one can visit waterfalls, the Wayah Fire Tower, built by the CC Corp during the Great Depression, where one can enjoy extensive long range views or hike to the Wesser Tower and spend an hour or so on the large viewing platform.

About Richard and Barbara Baldwin

Barbara and I are retired educators and live near the cabin. After retiring I purchased a woodmizers sawmill and cut the logs from our farm that are now in the cabin. We love to travel and have visited almost all of the states including Alaska. We have not yet explored the northeast, but plan to soon. Both are graduates of Nantahala High School and post graduates of Western Carolina University.

Richard and Barbara Baldwin purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Richard and Barbara Baldwin chose Smoky Mountains

Our cabin is centrally located for fun and adventure in the outdoors. Nantahala Lake is within a mile, the Nantahala River is just 4 miles away and offers Blue Ribbon trout fishing, kayaking, rafting, zip lining, gem mining, and excellent restaurants. Harrah's Casino is only an hour away and a new one is under construction close by in Murphy. The Appalachian and Bartram Trailheads are just down the road. This is our community and we love it because of the people and their laid back nature and easy living. And, all the four season's with flowers of spring, cool breezes of summers, the outstanding colors of fall, and winter brings it own beauty, especially when snow covers the mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

Easily accessible year around, only a couple of hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Asheville, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is nearby.

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the cabin, it was the most stocked place I have stayed using HomeAway so far. They had coffee, ice, soap for everything, makup wipes, hair dryer, washing machine, and the list goes on 😀. We had 4 adults, a baby, and dog and all fit well, with lots to do they provide games, books, stuffed animals, a fire pit, and tv. I would definitely recommend this cabin it's a great location, close to the lake and river with lots of swimming spots. The owners were really nice and just a phone call away if we needed anything

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin. Very clean and had everything stocked we could ask for. Didn't find anything in the online description that was missing/different. If fact, there was more there than we expected. Loved that it was so close to Bryson City and GSMNP. While it was close to the road, we didn't hear any traffic at night. The only disappointment was the burned out area nearby from the November 2016 fires, which is not the fault of the owners. We look forward to a return visit and know that those areas will be beautiful once again.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The cabin was so cute and well taken care of, the location was quiet and in a part of Nantahala that our family had not been aware of so it was fun to discover all the waterfalls, trails, and countryside. The owners were great! I would definitely recommend staying here.

Nice cabin for a fishing trip...

  • 4 of 5

Wife and I stayed for three nights with two friends form Charleston. The cabin was clean and well supplied. The location was perfect for fishing on the Nantahala River. We had a great guide (Gordon Vanderpool) and a wonderful time. It was nice to kick back in front of the fireplace after fishing all day! If the cabin was little further off the road I would give it 5 stars it deserves 4.5 anyway.

We absolutely loved our stay in Topton...it gets a 10out of 10!!

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Barbara,

Everything was amazing in the cabin...just perfect!! It was beautiful on the inside and out, and perfectly cozy...the location was convenient, snuggled between adorable small towns that we explored...it was chilly that weekend so we didn't get to hike, but we enjoyed visits to a few of the local brew pubs...did some Christmas shopping and just took in the beautiful scenery...got to see the tower...we really enjoyed the fireplace and the Christmas tree and decor. We were there for only two days, but will definitely come back and stay for a longer duration...Many thanks to you both and have a very Merry Christmas!! 🎅󱐼􎿻🎄󱀊Jackie and Al
