Secluded on three acres at the top of the mountain. Over 2200 s.f. of living space. Breathtaking, long-range mountain views from over 3600 ft. can be enjoyed from the two levels of wraparound decks with hot tub and rockers. Two story wall of windows on main level to further enjoy the views. Beautifully decorated with primarily hand crafted solid wood furniture from the local area. Beautiful, newly refinished hardwood floors on main level and brand new laminate (that looks like hardwood) in basement. Wood-burning custom stone fireplace. One bedroom and one bath on each of the three levels. Kitchenette and living area in basement, making the lower level almost like a separate home. (Ideal for two families traveling together or when privacy is needed/wanted.) Pool table. Free-standing video arcade machine with 60 classic games. Two, large, flat screen TVs with satellite dish. Picnic table, fire pit,hammock,and charcoal grill. Lake Nantahala is at the bottom of the road (approximately 3/4 mile from chalet) and we are only about five mins. from the marina where you can rent boats and kayaks and eat in the restaurant. (The marina and restaurant are seasonal.) Close to whitewater rafting on the world famous Nantahala River. Approx. 45 mins. to Murphy and approx. 45 mins. to Franklin. The Bartram Trail is less than five mins. away and offers beautiful scenery with great hiking. Horseback riding nearby. Truly a relaxing and memorable getaway. Plenty to do nearby, or plenty to keep you occupied if you don't want to leave the property. Due to our remote location, we do not get a cell signal in the chalet. (We do at the gas station and marina approx. 5 mins. away.) We have a landline with free long distance in the continental U.S. and an answering machine. It is not necessary to have a four wheel drive vehicle. Absolutely no smoking inside the chalet, please.

About John Bickerstaff
My wife, Melissa, and I are both native Floridians. We own a floor covering business and live in Central Florida. We have three amazing children and have spent many wonderful times with them in our mountain home.

Why John Bickerstaff chose Topton
We had been vacationing in the Nantahala area for years and decided we wanted our own retreat for our family there.
What makes this Chalet unique
We don't think you will find more incredible and beautiful long-range mountain views anywhere in the area. Sitting in our rockers or soaking in our hot tub while taking in those views in the quiet and peaceful surroundings is simply a little taste of heaven.

Wonderful Thanksgiving Getaway!!
We arrived on Thanksgiving day, the chalet was very well appointed and the directions were easy to follow. The kids loved the swing and hammock, as we adults enjoyed the porch, hot tub and view!! The beds were comfortable and there was room for everyone to enjoy being together but not ontop of one another. The best part was curling up by the fireplace in the evening!!! We would definitely consider returning in the future!!!
Thank you Christy for the kind words and we’re so glad y’all had a nice time! I appreciate you taking the time to write a nice review. Please come again and Merry Christmas to you all! John and Melissa
Place was perfect and not over sold as sometimes we've run into. Would definitely recommend.
Hi Michael, Melissa and I are so thankful y’all had a nice time and enjoyed what the chalet had to offer. Thank you for the kind words and for taking the time to write the review. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family 🙌 God bless you all!
Wonderful NC cabin
This cabin was fabulous...from the view to the cleanliness and the entertainment it provided. It was dark when we arrived, so we were surprised/delighted when we woke up the next morning and saw the view.
It was perfect for my children ages 8 & 19- we spent many hours playing pool and old school video games. The kitchen had plenty of pots/pans and other items any cook would need. Can't wait to go back again soon. BTW...our favorite was the rope swing by the cabin- not sure if it belonged to this cabin or not but we had a blast.
Kim , We are so thankful y’all had such a nice time! And yes the rope swing is on our property for we own the 3 lots adjacent to the chalet also! We felt that would add to the privacy and exploring! Glad all was more than adequate and thankyou for the kinds words and nice review. Please come again and God bless you all! John
Great location and view. Clean and cozy!
We really enjoyed the cabin and location of the property. Truly left like a getaway! Everything was clean and updated. The layout and bedding work great for the group.
Hi Chris , We are so thankful y’all enjoyed your “getaway”. Your kind words are much appreciated! It’s so beautiful up there ..... I can’t seem to get enough of it :) Please come again God bless you and your family! John
It was a lovely chalet with a great view of the mountains.
We had a great time!
Hi Emily, We are so glad y’all enjoyed yourselves! It is beautiful up there and one feels like they’re one step from Heaven. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and please come again. God bless you all. John
Wonderful, Amazing, Perfect,,,
This was one of the best vacations we have ever had. The cabin was wonderful and had so many things to do between the pool table, the arcade game, and the fantastic rope swing (our boys favorite), that we really didn't have to go anywhere. The cabin is also so close to Nantahala Lake and we were able to spend time out on a boat pulling an inner tube one day and do some kayaking another day and it was all only 5 minutes from the cabin. The cabin was very clean and well supplied and I really can't say enough about how well it was prepared for us. We are already planning our next trip to your cabin next year. Thank you again so much for everything.
Hi Richard, I want to thank you for taking the time to write this review. The fact y’all had such a nice time and the kind words mean so much to Melissa and me ! I have to admit that rope swing is fun :) We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and please come again any time! God bless you all !!!!!
While our chalet is secluded and rural, we are less than 30 minutes from the town of Andrews that offers shopping, a quaint downtown area, a grocery store, Walgreens, restaurants, etc.
