Why Ralph Randall chose Whittier

We looked for a home away from home near the mountains of North Carolina. We visited all the surrounding areas, including Bryson City, Franklin, and Asheville. We are far from impulse buyers and after looking for months and months, we finally narrowed it down that we would look for property in Cherokee, North Carolina. It just seemed to be the right fit as we would be incredibly close to the National Park as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway. There's enough to do to keep you busy, but it is remote enough to actually make you feel like you are on vacation. We started searching for a chalet and even stayed at some vacation rentals in the area. After months of looking, we eventually purchased this property.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the view of the mountains from the cabin front porch. The cabin is located only three miles from Cherokee and eight-ten miles from Dillsborough/Sylva therefore everything is very convenient but is at the end of a private asphalt paved driveway and is very secluded from any other cabins or homes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this cabin October 13-19,2013. This

was our second rental of this property and we

thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The squirrels were

very active gathering acorns in the trees in front of

the cabin. We had all the comforts of home but in

a beautiful isolated setting. We can't wait until our

next visit! Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Randall and the

caretaker too for allowing us to share your Little

Piece of Heaven in Cherokee!!!!!

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in Cherokee, NC in this cute cabin. It wasn't too far from anything in town and was a perfect fit for our family of 5. Plenty of beds, bathrooms, and space for our small kids (ages 7, 4, and 1) to play, eat, and sleep. Was clean and had a great porch and secluded yard. Owner was great with communicating expectations and was wonderful to work with when we had questions.

Great location for staying in Cherokee.

  • 4 of 5

Consider an all wheel or four wheel vehicle if coming in the middle of winter when there is snow and ice. There's a lovely paved road up to the cabin however it could be tricky with a conventional vehicle. Very quiet and peaceful.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the comment. The cabin driveway is paved asphalt and all guest are requested to not drive on it if there is snow or ice but park at the bottom instead.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed once before at this cabin and again, it was great. I accidentally locked myself out of the house and Ralph had a new key in the lockbox by the time I returned to the cabin! Great house and very helpful. Will stay again next time in town!!
