This is a quintessential cabin.  A covered deck extends out over Brush Creek and you can feed the trout (no fishing please) or grill out in the comfort of temperatures that are usually 10 degrees cooler than in town!  The fast flowing stream will lull you to sleep in this lovely cabin.  Ceiling fans in every room keep you comfortable.  Bring your inner tube and you can tube down the fast flowing creek, or take a short walk down the road to a private swimming and fishing lake for you and your guests (you will need a North Carolina fishing license). 

This vacation retreat has it all, swimming, fishing, nearby hiking, Waterfalls close by, peace and quiet, most of the comforts of home. 

Sorry NO WIFI.  All essentials are provided.  Very limited cell coverage.
