This is the perfect little cabin if your looking for a romantic getaway in the Smoky Mountains. Our 1 bedroom/1 bathroom cabin is beautifully decorated and designed for relaxation. The front porch has a view of the calmest part of the Oconaluftee River.
Sit on the porch and enjoy your morning coffee while you watch the Canadian Geese and Otters play around in the water. If you like, take your coffee to the dock and sit for more relaxation. Bring your Kayak or Canoe for more enjoyment of the river. A trail below the cabin leads right to the dock where you will have access to the river. Wi-fi is available along with a Roku device for online streaming. Netflix is available. No local cable TV but who needs TV when you have a beautiful river to enjoy.
