One bedroom has a queen size bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds. There is a full kitchen for cooking, a living room, and a sun room.

Outside, there is a wrap around deck, a swing, and easy access to the creek side picnic area by the way of steps. At night, open the bedroom windows and let the lull of the rushing creek put you to sleep or simply relax and catch your favorite TV show on DirecTV!

Why Paige Kirkland chose Bryson City Area

Buying the Simple Times Cabin was a fulfillment of a 'dream' that we have had for years. We had been looking for a place in the mountains for several years. One day we happened to be looking at some property on Dicks Creek Road. Once we saw the property that we originally came to view, we knew that it wasn't for us, but like always we went on up the road to see what else we could find. When we came to the gravel road, we both got interested in what we were seeing. A gravel road, a roaring creek, and a beautiful forest-what more could we ask for. When we pulled over the bridge that leads you onto Choice Place we immediately got out. My husband said that the smile on my face said it all. The sound of the rushing creek and the beautiful woods that surrounded were absolutely amazing.

What makes this cabin unique

Dicks Creek runs in front of our cabin.

Our property backs up to the Nantahala National Forest.

Cute little getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this little cabin in the woods. It's perfect for two-four people. It's very private and so quiet! You're about 10 minutes from town which was perfect for us. We didn't have any cell service or wifi which forced the teens to actually communicate using face to face interactions! It was incredible seeing their hands without cell phones in them. Highly recommended! :)

Serenity and a peaceful vacation

  • 4 of 5

I must say if you want to be away from all it is a great place to be! Paige was amazing and so accommodating. The cabin looks exactly like the pictures. It is charming with a mountain feel. We enjoyed the games and it was nice to have a guide with the TV. It was so clean with great towels and sheets. Everything is there you will need. It rained the first couple of days we were there but it was fine. We went to Cherokee, Bryson city, Sylva, and Pigeon forge which was a great drive right through the Great Smokey mountains. The only thing we wished we had asked is how to work the DVD. There were lots of movies there and we had brought some to and no way to watch them. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and give it 4 stars!!

Relaxing stay near Cherokee

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Simple Times cabin! I love that it was close to highway 74 and to Sylva and Cherokee. It would have been tricky to find in the dark, but luckily we arrived in the afternoon. The kids loved the little creek that runs just next to it. It was lovely and comfortable!

Upon arrival we knew this is going to be the relaxing vacation we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice wooded mountain stay with the cool creek rambling down the mountain was perfect to sit and relax. Just large enough to sit on the rocks and cool you heels with the sound of the water flow made such a perfect surrounding. The lodging was everything needed. Just bring your food. Great sitting on the deck with a beverage and hearing the creek was exactly what we were looking for not to mention the lower level swing and nice green lawn and landscaping. I recommend staying rather a couple or family you will be pleased. The owners were very nice and accommodating to your needs to make your stay comfortable and pleasing so you are able to enjoy your time.

JD and Vickie

Thank you

We were a but shell shocked at first... no wifi. Some phone service.
