Let yourself be surrounded by tumbling, white, waterfalls. Open the windows to "God's Air Conditioning". The cool air and ceiling fans in each room keep the cabin comfortable in the warmer months. Sit back and rock on your front porch as you watch the sun rise over the mountain. Then amble down to the rolling water and sit on a sheltered multi-level deck and watch the trout. Enjoy your rock fireplace, stereo, high definition TV, Wi-Fi, as you plan your day, which could include... A trip to quaint Burnsville to antique and specialty shops, then on to Asheville to enjoy "life". Return home to an updated kitchen, or grill out, or build a fire in your fire pit. You can then enjoy soaking in your claw foot tub with a glass of wine. When the day is over sink into your queen sized bed and listen to the rain on your tin roof. Before you leave you can wash, dry and iron you clothes for the trip... or not!
First Cabin Constructed On Cattail Mountain 1932

About Sandra Childs
I live in Asheboro, NC which takes me about 3 1/2 hours to reach the cabin. I own an antique shop hence the antiques in the cabin. I have two grown children and four grandchildren all of which love to spend time on the mountain. My son hunts and four wheels, my daughter reads, rocks, shops, drinks wine and smiles a lot. This smile is due to the fact that all four grandchildren dash to the water and we only hear laughter for hours.
Sandra Childs purchased this Cabin in 2005
Why Sandra Childs chose Cattail Creek
I fell in love the moment I saw this little cabin and I love the history that comes with it. This cabin and the one next door were the first to be built on the mountain. It is small but it suits it to be so. The cabin is warm and welcoming. In mild weather I stay outside to enjoy my plants, the fire pit, the porch, the view up the water from the deck. I am here most often by myself but I am never lonely. It is home...

Once you make my cabin your home (for whatever period of time) you will understand the feeling of peace and comfort. Sign the porch ceiling and leave a bit of you behind. Also there is a journal that you are welcome to share your experience, whatever it may be...

Great place for a couple!
This is a nice small cabin with everything you need for a relaxing getaway. The creek sound is awesome! Miles of mountain road to hike upon! We felt very safe.
Good Afternoon Cathy,
We have four wonderful seasons up on the mountain and each one offers beauty and activities that are seasonally appropriate.
Come back anytime and enjoy them all!
RUSTIC, OFF THE GRID, BACK IN TIME LIVING, JUST WHAT YOU NEED.
If your are looking for luxury don’t even think about it. We carried all our food and drinks. Parked and never left for 4 days except for hiking. Paul the caretaker was wonderful as he stopped by to check on us and sit with us by the fire and told us about the history of the mountain. He was there to greet us and there to send us off.
Just wonderful rustic living, we couldn’t have ask for anything better. Sandra was very helpful and that always makes a trip better. Please if you are looking for rustic easy living, pack some food and head for Sandra’s original pole cabin. Also the snow we got on the second morning was a great plus. Thanks again Sandra and look forward to staying at the cabin again soon.

Thank you so much Ronnie. Your were delightful from the moment we made contact. Plus you took the time and effort to resubmit your review after it did not show up. I am so pleased that you and the Lunsford's enjoyed your stay. Please come back anytime. Guests like you make the rental experience worth the effort to share my little cabin.
Secluded, comfortable, unique, awesome
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The cabin is off the beaten path; rustic, and comfortable. You will be driving on narrow, windy roads to get to this destination; but for us, it was worth it. We could not enjoy the patio by the creek or the fire pit, because of the weather; but that did not affect the overall experience of a cabin in the woods. The owner, Sandra, and the caretakers are wonderful people to work with; very responsive. We plan to return one day!
Thank you so much Ann for sharing your experience at the cabin. I am so sorry that Old Man Weather kept you from enjoying the deck at the water and the fire pit. Come on back and try it again!
Perfect, inside & out...
We so enjoyed our three nite stay. Got some awesome pics, we came to see leaves change and they were absolutely beautiful from cabin to every place of interest we visited. Thank you so much for making this cozy cabin available for all to enjoy.
Thank you Sandy. I am so happy that your visit came before the leaves fell. Come back anytime!
Peaceful Relaxing Beautiful
Where do I begin... From the gorgeous ride to the cabin, the beautiful sound of water that you hear rushing 24/7 the cabin inside and out was just perfect. We are already looking for dates to return. Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!
Thank you so much! Honey you just come back anytime... I will leave the light on for you!!!! 😄
