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!

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...
What makes this Cabin unique
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...

My family and I had a great time. The outdoors was incrediable and the cabin was very cozy.
Let’s go fishing! That was our theme. We actually caught trout. We also had a great time finding rocks and playing in the stream. The front porch is the best seat in the house. The view was magical. At night we watched fire flys while making samores by the fire. We went to Mt Mitchell and Carolina Hemlock State Park were we went tubing and fishing. After a day of adventure we relaxed in the cozy cabin. Very peaceful. Highly recommend for anyone that appreciates a beautiful setting and enjoys the outdoors.
Thank you taking the time to share your experience at the cabin. WOW, you were a very busy family! Sounds as though you need a vacation after your vacation! I am really happy that you enjoyed yourself and please come back anytime.
Peaceful and Tranquil
Cozy and inviting! There was a crazy storm our first night there that only added to the ambiance, it was so relaxing sleeping to the sound of giant raindrops on the metal roof. Absolutely loved our stay!!
I sent that rainstorm just for you! Come back and I will send another one.😀
Perfect quaint get away!
Loved it! The property is amazing with the stream running through it. The cabin is charming!! Fire pit was a perfect ending to our days!!
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. You are welcome to come back anytime!
Great front porch
Great escape from the big city. Almost like being at the ocean with the sound of the waves, except here it was the relaxing sound of the creek. Very relaxing and Paul answered all my questions and then some about the bares (bears).
Looking at going back in the fall.
Thank you Tony for taking the time to send a review on the cabin. I am so pleased that you discovered that just sitting on the porch is an adventure! So happy that you got to spend time with Paul. He is a wonderful caretaker and knows all about those bears! Come on back in the fall. The cabin will be waiting for you!
The Mountains called and we went.
Quiet, relaxing, a real mountain vacation. We enjoyed the surrounding attractions and also just relaxing to the quietness and sound of the rushing stream near by.
I am so pleased that the mountain called you name and that you listened! Come back anytime. It will not forget your name.
Thanks for the review!
Our first, certainly not last, visit to the cabin! Our 8 year old grandson made his first trip to the mountains and he told us he wants to do this every year and bring his Mom and Dad! Loved climbing the rocks in the creek. He said, “I love the outside and the inside.” Everything was perfect! Peaceful! Quiet! There was a couple staying next door who live in Florida and said they had been coming here for years. The wife called for my grandson and I to come over . She gave us both a bottle of Bubbles and said it was their tradition to go to the creek and watch the bubbles floating over the rocks! Very sweet to share this with us! Thank you so much for sharing your cabin and giving us the chance to make wonderful memories!
How wonderful indeed that you got to create memories for you and your grandson. I did not know the tradition about the bubbles but you can bet that I will always keep a bottle on hand. Please do come back and bring his mom and his dad and anyone else you’d like to share the cabin. You are welcome back anytime!!!
