This cabin is one of two located on our river front, mountain view property. We have honey bees ( not near the cabins), chickens, blueberries, and our organic garden (near the cabin). We are less than a mile from the Appalachian trail, and we have 1200 feet of Nolichucky river frontage, including a class 2+-3 rapid. Rafting, kayaking, fishing, and hiking are all available on or near the property. The cabin is about 100 yards from the river.
We know that we are truly fortunate to live in this wonderful spot, and we love to share it with others. We strive to provide a simple but clean and comfortable, relaxing getaway. We are committed to environmental responsibility, humanely raised free ranging chickens, organic farm, and have electric composting toilets in each cabin.
Guests are welcome to enjoy any part of our property. We have hammocks, chairs, and picnic tables, fire rings and wood at the cabins, and closer to the river. We also provide charcoal grills.
Interaction with guests
We can provide information on a variety of outdoors activities in the area as well as in Asheville, NC (45 minutes) and surrounding region of Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee. Beautiful sections of the AT are close by along with other hiking trails with mountain vistas and or waterfalls. The Nolichucky Gorge is just upriver , and the rafting companies are about 1.5 miles from us. The new Rocky Fork State Park is about 10 minutes.
We are 25 minutes from Jonesborough, TN, home of the international Storytelling Festival and about 45 minutes from Bristol Motor Speedway.
The property is about 9 acres alongside other large tracts of land with limited development on the edge of the Cherokee National Forest and the Nolichucky River. Though rural, we are not remote being only minutes from interstate 26. We are outside the town limits.
We have parking on the property. guests would need personal transportation
Other things to note
Though we love animals and have dogs of our own, we cannot allow animals in the cabin due to proximity to our chickens, possible allergies of other guests, and health department regulations.
Please respect our property and the natural environment. We aim to provide a clean and quiet getaway, and ask guests to respect quiet time between 10pm and 7am. We do not allow smoking in the cabins or on the porches, and cannot have pets inside the cabins. Tennessee law prohibits anyone under the age of 7 from sleeping on a top bunk bed.
My husband, Mike, and I moved to this country property on the Nolichucky River in 2010 where we built a house and began developing a bee farm and homestead. Mike is a retired educator, and I am a semi-retired psychologist and professor. We are both avid paddlers, hikers, and campers who love the outdoors. We enjoy sharing our beautiful mountain view, river-front property with others.
