Comforting 1700 Sq.ft. two story 3/2 Mountain Cabin- Stress Reliever's Dream
About Theresa Wigginton
I am a native Florida girl with an eye for adventure. I am a practicing attorney who is tired of the rat race (the rats were winning) and was looking for just the perfect place to retire. As a Floridian, I love the water but was tired of the 9 months of hot weather. I started searching for 'my little cabin by a creek' for several years but could not find the right spot. If it was quiet, didn't feel like living in a subdivision, had lots of nature, tall trees, and water close by to fish, swim and boat, it usually was too far from everything, hard to get to in winter, too remote for comfort, or was one of too many cabins advertised and made to look like a tacky Daniel Boone's place for tourist. One day I stumbled on this abandoned house that most would never look at twice and the rest is history. It was sitting lonesome in a cove surrounded by hills of giant hickory trees on three sides, not too visible from the Hwy, but just minutes from lots of rivers, lakes, trails, and 'adventure'. Strange was that the road was paved going in. Later I learned it was an abandon Hwy after the new Hwy 19/74 was built. The giant hickory trees were covered in vines, the creek was full of dead branches, overgrown, and the ravine in front was knee deep in Kudzu and hid the flowing stream. It had been on the market for several years, but perhaps others didn't see what I saw it could be. I couldn't get the vision of its potential out of my mind. Looking past the mildew, trash, vines, and Kudzu, and derelict appearance, I saw what it now has become, a stress-free retreat that replenishes my soul.
Theresa Wigginton purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Theresa Wigginton chose Bryson City
To me the ideal retreat would have to have a creek to enjoy, but not one that I had to walk to experience. This property has the most musical little stream I've ever heard in all my searches. I was intrigued that with open windows, in nearly every room in the house I could hear the bubbling steam. Lying in a cozy bed or rocking on the porches and reading a good book, being lulled to sleep by the sounds of falling water is my idea of heaven on earth. I made sure the two porches with wooden floors, had rocking chairs, and I envisioned people sitting with a good glass of wine, reminiscing about the adventures they had that day. When I saw the ravine initially overgrown with Kudzu vines, I could imagine wildflowers and weeping willows swaying in sync with the music of the creek. In planning the remodel I wanted outdoor swings to sit and talk with my friends or just a quiet place to be alone. With much diligence and a desire to make it a happy place again, I began a six months remolding 'adventure'. Every room has been considered in making it cozy, convenient, and comfortable. After clearing the kudzu vines and planting grass in the ravine, I promptly planted three weeping willows to grow tall and provide cool shade for picnics by the creek that flows down through it. I brought in tree surgeons to trim the neglected giant hickories and dogwood that abound on the property. I personally searched for the right furniture and decorations that would be the icing on the cake. I have diligently photographed the metamorphosis and am proud to say the worm turned into a beautify butterfly!
What makes this Cabin unique
Two large screened porches, a year-round cascading stream flows from the waterfall and circles the cabin from back to front and can be heard no matter where you sit. The tall hickory trees and dogwoods keep the property cool and shaded no matter what the temperature. I love being close to so many fun places within minutes of the cabin. The surrounding forest always gives peace to any weary traveler.

Nice little place
Stayed here for a few nights while we took in the local sights and did the polar express. Perfect location between Bryson City, Cherokee and local places. The place was clean on check in and was relatively easy to find. There were 8 of us in the party and I would say it was just big enough for 4 adults and 4 kids. Any more might be a squeeze. Overall happy with the accommodation. The internet didn’t work too well but it was a good excuse to disconnect from the world for a few days. Kids loved the waterfall and making s’mores around the fire pit. No people around, just piece and quiet. I would consider staying at this property again in the future
This is a unique property and was a really fun place to stay. We loved the stream, waterfall, and fire pit! Will definitely be back!
Great Location. Great Cabin. Very Cozy.
We loved the back porch and the front porch. This was a great cabin with a homey feel. We had what we needed, including plenty of towels which isn't always the case with a vacation rental. Very comfortable beds as well.
Peace and Tranquility
We enjoyed staying at this beautiful cabin. The outside was our favorite. The stream and waterfall were relaxing and beautiful. If you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful, or amazing place to stay this place should definitely be on your list. Thanks Theresa for letting us enjoy your property and all it has to offer we will definitely be coming back💕�💕�
We really enjoyed this spot. Our girls loved the creek finding salamanders, crawdads and other fun critters. We just wish we’d stayed longer!
The house is great. Fully stocked kitchen. I was a little concerned about the lack of air conditioning, since it was August; however, it was not a problem and sleeping with the windows open was wonderful. The sound of the brook and a few nightly rains made it pleasant. The waterfall is great. We never got around to using the fire pit, but it’s a good spot with chairs and a grill.
1 mile north of the NOC, the most famous rafting/kyaking center in the Eastern US. Minutes to multiple rivers for fly-fishing, boating, swimming. 12 min. to the Smoky Mtn Railroad in Bryson City and the beautiful Smokey Mountain National Park, 20 min. to Cherokee and Harrod's casino. 35 Min to Maggie valley Fabulous motorcycling on the Dragon's tail. Antique shops, good restaurants galore or biking and hiking trails near by. If you just want to relax by our melodious creek in outside swings or rock on the large porches while listening to the creek, this is the place for you. The temperature is always 7-10 degrees cooler in the cove than elsewhere due to the rainforest Eco systems. Enjoy the beautiful waterfall just a short walk from the back porch. Fully equipped kitchen with farmhouse stone floors in this 3 bedroom-2 bath cabin, freshly renovated and new on the market for rental. The back porch overlooking the creek has a futon for extra sleeping for those who want to get the feeling of sleeping 'outdoors'. There are only 2 cabins in the cove and we own both of them. The second cabin is ' up in the trees' on the south wall of the cove and sleeps 4. It is a great place to add to your rental if you need room for more than 8 . Contact me for more details.
