About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 4-6

Are you looking for a mountain getaway that offers peace and tranquility, but is still close to all the action in the Smokies? Come stay a while at the Little Cove Cabin and find what you've been looking for!

Tucked away in a little cove in the woods, you can relax on the large front porch and watch the abundant wildlife around you or swing in the hammock in the front yard while listening to the babbling brook near by. Wild turkeys, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, coyotes, and even an occasional catamount and black bear have all been seen here!

Hike through the acres of woods that surround the cabin, or fish for rainbow and speckled trout in the bold creek just down the road. In the evenings, you can roast marshmallows at the fire pit where you can sometimes hear an old Barred Owl hooting in the trees nearby. Take a long stroll up the East Fork creek where 100+ year old farm houses, grazing horses and cattle, and rustic old barns and silos whisper the stories from a bye gone era.

Newly renovated, this romantic little A-Frame log cabin has all the modern comforts of home while maintaining the rustic nostalgia of a cozy little cabin in the woods! The cabin has a queen-sized bed in the downstairs bedroom and a second queen-sized bed in the loft bedroom. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living area that helps to accommodate up to 6 people. A fully equipped kitchen and separate laundry room have everything you will need for your stay. The cabin also has wireless internet access throughout and a flat screen HDTV with Directv programming. Outside, there is a Weber gas grill, dining and picnic tables and plenty of seating for enjoying meals outside. Also, our newly installed 6 person hot tub is perfect for a relaxing soak after a long day of fun in the mountains.

Conveniently located only 10 minutes from the charming town of historic Dillsboro and 15 minutes from Sylva, Franklin, and Western Carolina University. The towns of Cherokee and Waynesville are just a 30 minute or less drive away.

If your looking for a cozy place to relax, decompress, and get back to nature, you will find everything you're looking for in the Little Cove!

About Kimberly Gray

My husband and I live and work in Sylva and are busy parents to our 4 children. My husband works for the phone company and I am a potter that enjoys playing in the mud all day. We feel very blessed to be able to live and raise our children in these beautiful mountains.

Kimberly Gray purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Kimberly Gray chose Sylva

This property has been in my family for over 100 years. Growing up in Maryland, I have many fond childhood memories of my family's regular visits to the mountains and staying in the Little Cove. Playing in the woods and catching crawdads in the creek with my brother were some of my favorite things to do.

Originally built in the 1970's, the aging Little Cove cabin was in need of some serious TLC. As a result, my husband and I began a 2 year 'rebuild'. The result was a brand new home with the nostalgic charm of an old mountain A-Frame cabin. We are proud of the hard-work and love we've poured into this cabin and hope that many families will now make special memories of their own in the Little Cove.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely quite cabin. I enjoyed using the hot tub. I also liked the view. I like looking at nature. I absolutely loved the tiny river near the cabin!

I've never taken a steep dirt road before, so it was a new experience. If you haven't experienced that, guys you have to floor it! I didn't know that I have to do that and my car got stuck. I thought that this was a challenging experience as a person who hasn't been in a steep dirt road before.

But overall, it was a wonderful experience, and I'd like to do it again someday!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our two dogs up for our one year anniversary. This cabin could not be more perfect! So cozy and we loved walking down to the creek. It is a perfect location, close to Great Smokey Mountain National park, and not in a touristy town.

Great Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at the A-Frame many times. It's a lovely cabin that we enjoy renting. This trip was a little different. We arrived in the middle of a snowstorm. So we called Kim to tell her we couldn't get to the cabin. Her husband Josh met us at the bottom of the road and transported my husband and I and our two cats to the A-Frame with all our belongings. He saved the day. They are a great couple and we love the cabin.

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family has had the pleasure of staying at this property three times over the past few years. Wonderful location to get away from it all and gather together as a family to make great memories among the mountains of Western North Carolina! Our family dogs are welcome to join us in our "home away from home" and this special amenity is greatly appreciated. The Kairis and Travis Family

Location

Located only 10 minutes from historic Dillsboro and 15 minutes from the town of Sylva and Western Carolina University, 20 minutes to Cherokee and Franklin, 1 hour to Asheville and the Biltmore Estate, 2 hours to Atlanta, 1.5 hours to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, 30 minutes to Bryson City and 40 minutes to Nantahala Outdoor Center. Only 5 minutes to the Tuckasegee river and some of the best fishing in the mountains.

Within walking distance of the cabin there are several hiking trails, old logging roads, waterfalls, caves, miles of national forest land, and a bold creek great for fishing rainbow, brown, and speckled trout!

Other Activities: Gem-mining, waterfalls, rafting, sledding/tubing, Cherokee Indian reservation, Blue Ridge parkway, Great Smoky Mtn. National park and much more!
