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 Kyle
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.

Fantastic no-frills cabin to call home base for a weekend adventure in the mountains
My husband and I stayed a long weekend here and it was perfect for our fly-fishing filled time. Just minutes away from the Nantahala River, it’s perfect if you’re looking for a spacious and reasonably priced cabin that’s close to outdoor recreation opportunities. We would definitely stay here again.
It was so much fun and the cabin was perfect.
Love love TNT vacation.
Great cabin ! Great owners
The place to stay
Very nice cabin, well equipped with all we needed and for anything we might have forgotten. Neat and clean and I would recommend to anyone. Our only problem was the traffic out front was heavier than we expected. Thought this was going to be off on a side road.
A weekend in the mountains with our bikes
We were two couples that hauled our bikes up to ride. My son also came at last minute. We had three vehicles and a variety of trailers. The drive accommodated them all. The driveway was not steep at all. I was even able to back the truck up it. The driveway is gravel, however that did not effect the bikes, we had no problems with the driveway and would stay there again. A nice and peaceful cabin.
Brilliant stars and perfect view of 2017 solar eclipse
Lovely cabin with more room than our small party (of two adults and Zeke the dog) needed, but still cozy-feeling. The cabin also included more than we needed to sleep comfortably, prepare and enjoy the food we brought, relax, and peruse books about the history and ecology of West North Carolina. We appreciated the Buck's Nest Journal, in which guests could share tips and adventure suggestions with future guests, and the binder of helpful information about the cabin, area, and our hosts. All of us, including Zeke, loved the porch.
We traveled to Buck's Nest to view the solar eclipse; it was a spectacular show in a perfect setting. Other than that, we hiked and visited the lake, but we didn't take advantage of other outdoor activities available within a few miles of the cabin.
Note to those traveling with dogs: We didn't worry about Zeke going into the road in front of the cabin, as he listens to our call under most circumstances. However, we did keep close control of him because two dogs visited the cabin, separately. Unknown, loose dogs fall outside city-dog Zeke's "most circumstances."
