Come stay on the romantic Hiwassee River, where you can fish, float, bring your kayak or canoe, cook breakfast, lunch or dinner outside and relax on the huge deck over the river. When you step outside the cabin on the porch, you are just feet away from the River. There is a fenced area for your pets as well. Enjoy the evening around the fire pit or take a stroll down the long paved road, where you'll see wildlife, trees and listen to the rushing river. The cabin sleeps 4 comfortably. There are restaurants nearby as well as boating at Lakes Chatuge, Notely, and Hiwassee. John C. Campbell Folk School and Cherokee Hills Golf & Country Club are less than 5 miles away. The Hiwassee River at this location has trout over 2 feet long in it. Harrah's Casino, 24 hour Walmart, Ingles, and varied shopping and restaurants are minutes away.

Why Robbie Thomas chose Brasstown

We chose this property because of the beautiful location right on the Hiwassee River among the beautiful Smokey Mountains. We both have vacationed in the Smokey Mountains all of our lives.

What makes this Cabin unique

You will be right on the Hiwassee River well over 140 feet wide! You can watch and listen to the river from the front porch or sit directly over the river on a large deck! You can also enjoy the fire ring on the river bank as you roast marshmallows and hot dogs or simple enjoy the fire. The deck has a grill for a convenient cookout. If you bring your dog you will be happy to know that there is a chain link fenced dog area right off of the front porch. River Road itself runs right along the river and makes a great place for both human and dog walks.

                                                              We love this property!

                                                              This had everything we needed. It is quiet, comfortable,and pet friendly. There was a small problem when we arrived but after notifying the owners, they were very responsive in getting it resolved. Couldn’t have had a better week!

                                                              Peaceful and Relaxing Stay

                                                              This was the perfect place to relax after a couple of very stressful months. The cabin was immaculate and every need was thought of. We were in the area to look at property, however, the porch and river deck were so soothing we barely left! We will definitely return.

                                                              Cute Place

                                                              The cabin was very cute and we enjoyed our stay. Information on things to do in the area provided by the hosts was super useful!

                                                              Perfect river gem!

                                                              It was a very nice place to stay. My husband didnt have much luck with fishing but he loved trying. Our dogs even loved it. will try and book another stay at some time and point here.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              cute & clean

                                                              We loved this cute and very clean cabin. So relaxing to sit on the front porch and listen to the river flow. Robbie has everything so well organized and even thinks about the furbabies. Our dog Rocky, just loved to sit out on the porch and then be able to run out in the fenced in area as he wanted. I believe he was sad to leave. lol!

                                                              The area is nice and quiet and we would love to come back during the summer for enjoying the deck area more.

                                                              Thanks for providing a cozy cabin!
