Let yourself be surrounded by tumbling, white, waterfalls. Open the windows to "God's Air Conditioning". The cool air and ceiling fans in each room keep the cabin comfortable in the warmer months. Sit back and rock on your front porch as you watch the sun rise over the mountain. Then amble down to the rolling water and sit on a sheltered multi-level deck and watch the trout. Enjoy your rock fireplace, stereo, high definition TV, Wi-Fi, as you plan your day, which could include... A trip to quaint Burnsville to antique and specialty shops, then on to Asheville to enjoy "life". Return home to an updated kitchen, or grill out, or build a fire in your fire pit. You can then enjoy soaking in your claw foot tub with a glass of wine. When the day is over sink into your queen sized bed and listen to the rain on your tin roof. Before you leave you can wash, dry and iron you clothes for the trip... or not!

About Sandra Childs
I live in Asheboro, NC which takes me about 3 1/2 hours to reach the cabin. I own an antique shop hence the antiques in the cabin. I have two grown children and four grandchildren all of which love to spend time on the mountain. My son hunts and four wheels, my daughter reads, rocks, shops, drinks wine and smiles a lot. This smile is due to the fact that all four grandchildren dash to the water and we only hear laughter for hours.
Sandra Childs purchased this Cabin in 2005
Why Sandra Childs chose Cattail Creek
I fell in love the moment I saw this little cabin and I love the history that comes with it. This cabin and the one next door were the first to be built on the mountain. It is small but it suits it to be so. The cabin is warm and welcoming. In mild weather I stay outside to enjoy my plants, the fire pit, the porch, the view up the water from the deck. I am here most often by myself but I am never lonely. It is home...
What makes this Cabin unique
Once you make my cabin your home (for whatever period of time) you will understand the feeling of peace and comfort. Sign the porch ceiling and leave a bit of you behind. Also there is a journal that you are welcome to share your experience, whatever it may be...

Perfect get-away from it all
We stay at Child's Play in mid-September. The cabin is cute, cozy, very nicely decorated, and very clean.It is surrounded with beautiful forest. It is equipped with everything you might need, plenty of towels, fully equipped kitchen, seats and tables on the covered porch, fire pit and seats on one side of the house, and another large seating place right next to charming stream (also covered). There is an easy access to a stream, our dog loved to wade in it's clear water. We enjoyed the absolute lack of noise, no traffic, no loud music, just nature at it's best. There is plenty to do within a short distance: multiple hiking trails, waterfalls, gemstone mines. The town of Burnsville is just a 30min drive away, there are several full size supermarkets, full pharmacy, and multiple whimsical stores and cafes. We usually went hiking from morning till late afternoons, and then relaxed on the front porch with a glass of wine, just observing the nature. Highly recommend the place for anyone who likes nature, and needs to get away from noisy city life. Plus you can take your four legged best friend along. All in all - the place is a winner.
My My Goodness, Thank You!
You composed a better description than I did when listing. You described everything that I hope my quests have the opportunity experience. Please come back anytime. You were wonderful guests.
Cozy cabin in the woods
The cabin was incredibly comfortable and homey. We loved all that it had to offer. My grandson chopped wood for the first time and built a fire for the first time. It was a memorable time for us all.
So happy that the cabin could offer your grandson 2 first! You also created a memory with his grandmother. Come back anytime and make more memories!
Absolutely what we were looking for
My wife and I were looking for a quiet place to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary and we found it at Cattail Creek. The log cabin was beautiful and cozy. It had a wonderful pavillion right on the creek that we hung our eno's up and just enjoyed each others company. We will definitely be making plans to return in the future.
So happy that you enjoyed your stay at the cabin. Do not wait for your 29th to come back,!
A beautiful, well maintained cabin in a magical location on the creek.
Communication with the owner was easy. Check in and out went smoothly. The property was clean and cozy.
Thank you Anna for you kind review. It always pleases me when my guests have a wonderful experience. The cabin and the mountain are very special to me and it pleases me to share them with others. Come back anytime.
