Space 1,600 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeper sofa; sleeps 6

The Nugget on Coker unique cabin is located on a lovely creek in a small valley with a few other cabins. The location is very quiet and peaceful. The sounds of the creek, the breeze in the trees and birdsong are the greatest noise. Every detail in the newly refurbished cabin has been addressed to give you a comfortable, memorable visit. Local artisans designed and built the fireplace, gazebo and wrought iron stair railing. The new kitchen features a gas cooktop, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator with icemaker.

The first floor has an open floor plan with kitchen, living room and dining in one section. The game room and downstairs bath are in a second area.

Coker Creek is in the Cherokee National Forest with of many opportunities for outdoor activities -- hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, fly fishing -- and yet is within driving distance of the Great Smoky mountains and Pigeon Forge shopping and entertainment as well as scenic rides by car and rail.

Near Championship Golf Courses: Tellico Villlage has three championship golf courses. For a limited time, the village is inviting non-residents to play its private championship courses. The Links at Kahite is a true 'links' course that meanders through a beautiful natuaral setting and offers spectical panoramic view of the Great Smoky Mountains. The Tanasi course has six sets of tees that play from 6,731 to 5,044 yards. The course borders Tellico lake and offers a diversity of appeal from the challenging water holes to the strategic par fives. The Tanasi Clubhouse includes an excellent restaurant that offers casual dining in a beautiful setting. The Toqua course features a classic design that is considered one of the best golf tracks in Tennessee. The course was built into an exquisite natural setting with several holes playing alongside Tellico Lake. Toqua is as challenging as it is beautiful and holes seven through nine may be the most demanding three consecutive holes in the state.

Ocoee River - Olympic White Water Course: In 1996 the Ocoee river was the site of the World's first Olympic whitewater event on a natural river. The river is in a beautiful rocky gorge with Class III & IV rapids. Kayakers are seen on the river year round and rafting outfitters offer trips June-September. The White water center has a one-mile hiking trail which crosses a 330 foot suspension bridge and circles the center. The trail is entirely accessible for those who are physically challenged. There are an additional 20 miles of trails for hikers and mountain bikers, including the Bear Paw Trail and the Chestnut Mountain Trail, both of which are loops. A recent addition, the Thunder Rock Express, has received a lot of positive comments from bikers.The Old Copper Road Historic Trail allows hikers and bikers an easier paced adventure along the restored path that was used to transport copper by wagon from Ducktown to Cleveland before the arrival of the railroad from Blue Ridge.

Fly Fishing - Tellico River and Citico Creek: The Tellico River and surrounding area make up one of Tennessee's classic trout-fishing destinations. The Tellico is best known for heavy stockings and big-fish potential on the main river and on Citico Creek. The Tellico is a big river, offering plenty of room for plenty of fishermen, and the heavily stocked section is more than 13 miles long. Tthe forks of Citico Creek and the Bald River, a major tributary of the Tellico, form the centerpieces of the Citico and Bald River wilderness areas. These streams offer wild trout in unspoiled wilderness settings and, more often than not, no company from other anglers. Guides and outfitters are available and the Cherohala Welcome center provides maps and a wealth of information.

About Susan Paulus

I am a retired electrical engineer. I grew up in East Tennessee and love the scenery and mountains of the area.

Susan Paulus purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Susan Paulus chose Tellico Plains

After retirement, I decided renovating a mountain cabin would be a great project! For me John Muir's quote 'The mountains are calling and I must go' is a perfect fit.

What makes this cabin unique

The creek is the focal point of this property and the reason I love it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

we found the Nugget to be quaint,cozy,comfortable and completely clean. kitchen cabins were completely stocked with meticulously arranged cutlery, stylish dinnerware and every conceivable culinary apparatus. owner Susan was instrumental in assisting my booking, making sure everything was to our satisfaction and even surprised us with a delicious banana bread left for our arrival. though our stay was short as a side line on our return trip back north we enjoyed the soothing sounds of the stream from the covered porch out back [it rained real hard during our stay but did not dampen our outdoor enjoyment] the luxurios bed and sunken hot tub revived our bodies and minds for the continuation of our long drive home. what a wonderful stay- sure to be back. drive to Buck Bald and hike to Conasauga Falls are natural wonders not to be missed

Very nice setting right on the creek. Very comfortable cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend. There was a tornado in the area and we lost power most of the night, but it just added to the cabin experience. Plenty of candles, flashlights and battery powered lanterns. Looking forward to our next stay, perhaps a honeymoon. I proposed to my fiancee during our stay.

Beautiful mountain respite

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the cute cabin. Beautiful setting with a creek outside. Everything was as described and the kitchen was well stocked. Our little family of 4 had plenty of space and enjoyed exploring the Cherokee National Forest. We’d like to return once the weather is warmer.

Secluded, peaceful and well kept

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay here! The house is in immaculate condition and was refreshingly clean. The adjacent river adds to the tense of tranquility and escape. The hot tub is a gem, right next to the river.

Great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at the cabin. It was located very privately in Tellico Plains TN. There is no phone service but Susan has wireless internet service so we could communicate with our families and friends. We spent New Years here with another couple and throughly enjoyed the comforts of the cabin. The furniture is very comfy, the fireplace so cozy and the hot tub was hot and not too far away from a quick trip from the house. The night time temps were about 10 degrees, so using the hot tub was limited. We each had our own bedrooms which had a king comfortable bed. There are two bathrooms with showers which worked out great for the four of us. The cabin had everything we could need for the three night stay. Thanks, Susan

The Cherokee National Forest is a pristine forest with spectacular views, hiking trails, whitewater rafting on the Ocoee Olympic site, horseback riding, and fishing on the Tellico River and Coker Creek. A unique treat is panning for gold in the Cherokee National Forest. The forest is surrounded by historical areas and quaint towns that offer museums, antique shops, artists' galleries, and unique shops. The Cherohala Skyway and Tail of the Dragon route are popular with motor cyclists as well as those seeking mountain views.

Other Activities: Panning for gold in the Cherokee National Forest is a popular outing; a guide to good sites is available at the Coker Creek Visitors Center. The forest is also a great place for hikes and mountain biking. Indian Boundary is a great family place with a lake and swimming beach and an easy hike.
