About the Property

Cabin has living/dining/kitchen area, gas fireplace, two bedrooms,2 bathrooms

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. Both towers are located along the Appalachian Trail. Buck's Nest Cabin is conveniently located off Wayah Road just one mile from beautiful Lake Nantahala. Nantahala River, a Blue Ribbon Trout Stream, is only 4 miles away. Relax on the deck of our cabin after a hiking either the Bartram Trail or Appalachian Trail, rafting the Nantahala River, gem mining in Franklin, or taking a scenic drive through our lovely mountains. Maybe you would like to roast a hotdog at the outdoor firepit The historic Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC is the most visited private home in the US and easily a one day excursion. Our kitchen is equipped for all your cooking needs and a gas grill on the deck is also available. If one is very observant, deer and wild turkey can be spotted on the adjacent property. We now have Wi-Fi and cell service. A new heat pump/air-conditioning unit just added.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Topton, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
