We can't adequately describe how peaceful it is to soak in the Hot Tub on the deck of our little tiny home cabin and listen to the birds and the wind rustle through the trees while watching the sun set turn the sky purple over the Smokey Mountains. With the Nantahala National Forest literally as our back yard, this little log cabin is the perfect secluded nature getaway! After getting one of the best night’s sleep you've ever had in our pillow top bed, you'll have the energy to go Hiking, Fly Fishing or White Water Rafting on the Nantahala River, or Water Skiing on the glassy water of the Nantahala Lake. Hikers will love the easy access to the Appalachian and Bartram Trails - and the photos you see on this listing are from a secret Swimming Hole and Cliff Diving area off the Bartram Trail. Other local activities also include mountain biking, kayaking, hunting, golfing, swimming, sight-seeing, and more. Renters are also welcome to use our canoe to explore Nantahala Lake! We've got some DVD’s at the cabin in case it rains.
The cabin is stocked with everything you'd have at your own kitchen including a coffee pot and propane grill on the deck. The quaint little towns of Andrews and Murphy are just a short drive away if you don’t want to cook your own meals or if you forget your favorite fishing lure. While you're welcome to scour the woods around the cabin for firewood - you're not going on vacation to become a lumberjack - so we recommend you pick up a bundle of wood at the Ingles Grocery store in Andrews on your way to the cabin.
Our renters continually tell us how peaceful and therapeutic it is to stay at our cabin. They mention having great plans to visit touristic attractions and outdoor adventures - but are so lured by the peace and beauty of the surroundings of the cabin and the hot tub that they end up spending most the day kicked back on the deck enjoying the view or sitting at the fire pit fascinated by the stars that illuminate the night sky.
NOTE: While mountain roads are sometimes steep and curvy they are well maintained paved roads and completely accessible. We have gone to great lengths to make the cabin as accessible as possible, but our GRAVEL driveway is EXTREMELY steep. Therefore, we REQUIRE all renters to either have 4 wheel drive or all-wheel drive! If you don’t have such a vehicle we require you to park at the bottom and hike up. This is a typical request for mountain cabins and not an unreasonable expectation, unless you're unwilling to hike our 800 ft. driveway. NOTE:IF YOU CHOOSE TO IGNORE THIS REQUIREMENT YOU WILL PAY FOR THE DAMAGES TO THE DRIVEWAY AND YOUR VEHICLE BECAUSE YOU WILL GET STUCK!
Renting Online: If you're reading this then you're ahead of the game when it comes to online renting. We have tried to make the process as simple as possible. Feel free to call us at any time if you have any questions about the process. If you're ready - just “book online”. Once we have received confirmation of the payment you will receive a detailed set of directions to the cabin which also include the 'key box code' for entry into the cabin.
Final note: This cabin is REMOTE by US standards - so be prepared for no cell service, no TV, no WIFI, and no one bothering you! The way a vacation should be!!!
