Description

Blackwell Branch Cabin... It's all about the creek. And the pond. And the mountains beyond. Peace, nature, serenity. Fall asleep to the sounds of the rushing creek right outside the windows. Open the French doors wide and let the fresh breeze in. Enjoy morning coffee on the wrap-around deck overlooking the creek, watch deer in the meadow and geese in the pond. Relax in the evening on the rocking chair porch. Let the kids run--they'll love the 2-story playhouse. Fish in the creek just steps outside the back door!

Blackwell Branch Cabin is bordered by two creeks -- it sits right on rushing Tusquittee Creek which can be heard from every room in the cabin and in addition, there is another small creek ("Blackwell Branch") that runs along the western edge of the property. This smaller creek is perfect for younger kids to mess around in and get their feet wet, exploring under rocks for salamanders and frogs. The cabin boasts wide wrap-around decks, a rocking chair front porch and even a two-story playhouse for the kids! A large section of the rear deck is closed off with gates to keep your small children and pets secure. There's a large fire-pit for nighttime campfires right on the banks of the creek. Catch your dinner right from your backyard and cook it on the brand-new gas BBQ grill.

Interior: 3 bedrooms & 2 full baths (1450sf)

Upstairs is the master bedroom loft with queen-size four-poster bed, two closets and one large dresser. The second bedroom upstairs has a single bed with a pull-out trundle, and closet. Between the two bedrooms is a full bath with shower/tub and a large closet to stash away all your things. The third bedroom is downstairs and has an antique metal bed (double), closet and large dresser with TV. Next to it is the other bathroom which has an old-fashioned claw-foot soaking tub, perfect for unwinding after a day on the trails. (The stacked washer/dryer is in a closet in this bathroom.)

The downstairs living space has an open plan with kitchen open to the dining room and living room. Dining room has a large farm-style table. There is a second smaller table in the dining room area for games & puzzles and setting up your laptop. The living room has a large wrap-around sectional sofa w/recliner that sits right in front of the river-rock hearth and wood-burning stove, and a large HD TV. Kitchen, dining room and living room all open out to the wide, wrap-around decks with the creek right outside. The large rocking chair front porch is a great place to watch for deer as they trek from the pond and up the mountain at the end of the day.

The property: The cabin sits on three wooded acres along Tusquittee Creek, level, with a gravel pull-through drive. Serenity Lane is a dead-end road with only four homes -- the first is Gili's Cove Cottage (our sister property), next are the wooded lots, then Blackwell Branch Cabin, another wooded lot (1+acres), then our own home and beyond our home at the dead-end is our one and only neighbor. We own all the wooded property between Gili's Cove Cottage and the Cabin, so children (and grown-ups) can feel free to wander among the trees and wildflowers. There is no traffic on our little lane other than ourselves. Parents can feel comfortable allowing their children to run and play around the property, in the woods, along the creek and around the pond without fear of traffic or strangers.

Canoe: There is a canoe available for use by our guest at no charge (shared between Gili's Cove Cottage and the Cabin). Paddles and life jackets are provided.

Internet, TV and telephone: Keeping in mind that cellular service here in our little corner of the mountains can be somewhat erratic, we've provided a landline telephone (unlimited long distance in the continental US) and hi-speed internet (Wi-Fi) to help you keep in touch. TV is provided by DirectTV and a Roku streaming device lets you use your Netflix, Hulu and other apps.

Equipment & supplies:

Bedrooms & baths: All sheets and towels are provided, with extras in the linen closet. Bathrooms are supplied with bar soap, liquid hand soap, extra toilet paper and Kleenex, and hairdryer.

Kitchen is fully equipped: microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, hand-mixer, all pots & pans, dishwasher soap and liquid dish soap, hand soap, paper towels.

Living room: Starter supply of wood for wood-burning stove is provided. For the big fire-pit out by the creek, you'll find plenty of dead-fall wood on the property.

Reading library, games & puzzles: You’ll find a large collection of books of all types in the bookcase and nightstands. A supply of jigsaw puzzles and games is also provided.

Additional Location Information

Clay County and the town of Hayesville are located in the mountains of far western North Carolina, far form the tourists and hubbub of Asheville, Highlands/Cashiers and Maggie Valley areas. It prides itself on being "two hours from anywhere", yet is a convenient home base for all sorts of outdoor activities, from boating and swimming on beautiful Lake Chatuge to white-water rafting, hiking in the surrounding national forests, fly-fishing on rivers and creeks, mountain biking and so much more. There are antique shops, flea markets and thrift shops galore for shopping and just plain junking. Spring, summer and fall are festival seasons with everything ranging from tractor parades on the square to our now nationally-famous Pumpkin' Chunkin' in October and the not-to-be-missed Possum Drop on New Year's Eve. But what we don't have is traffic, congestion or roadways lined with strip malls and traffic lights and tourist shops. The local Ingles supermarket (with a Starbucks!) is one of the best around. Stroll around Hayesville's old-fashioned town square with our historic courthouse front and center, and when you're hungry be sure to stop in at The Copper Door, one of the top 100 fine dining restaurants in the country.

So when you're ready to come to the mountains-- the real mountains, the way it used to be-- come to Hayesville and see what all of us already know-- Clay County, Good for the Soul.

Nothing Shy Of Amazing

This place is nothing shy of amazing! My husband and I were in much need of a quiet and peaceful short vacation. The cabin was so clean and everything I feel was laid out to fit our needs. We had fresh flowers,chocolate covered strawberries,and sparking cider. Was such a personal touch considering we were there on Valentine's weekend. And the amazing tree house........our 12 year old was in heaven. It was like this place was made for us!! We love the mountains and how we feel like we can take a deep breath. The creek sound is so relaxing and even in the winter months we sat outside just to listen to the nature. We will be back for sure!!! I have never been to a place where I have felt so at home!!!!!

Super clean and peaceful

“We enjoyed everything about this cabin. It was super clean and peaceful. We enjoyed fishing near the stream and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit at night. There was just enough room for the six of us—3 adults and three children. There was a bed for each of us. We loved it and would definitely return again. We had a wonderful time -- we enjoyed the quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Thank you for the great place for us to bond as a family :) “

Incredibly Wonderful Home

Incredibly wonderful home! We had a most wonderful stay at Blackwell Cabin. I can't say enough to describe how incredibly wonderful this home is. My husband, two boys and I wanted to get away from the city and enjoy the outdoors; it was everything we were looking for and more!! From the moment we drove up, we were engulfed by the beauty and peacefulness of this hidden gem. This house has everything you could possibly need while on vacation. The owners, Linda and George were wonderful and very responsive to any questions we had. The house is thoughtfully furnished and equipped with all of the essentials to make your stay pleasant and worry free. It is not too far from the supermarket, restaurants and many wonderful outdoor activities, yet the house is tucked away from the main road so that you have complete privacy and are surrounded by nature. My two boys, 3 & 5 years old enjoyed running around the garden, throwing pebbles in the creek, playing in the treehouse and fishing in the pond. Linda and George were the perfect hosts. We can’t wait to be back again

This Is The Place!

The Creek. It's All About The Creek. And The Pond. And The Mountains Beyond...
Review #29353156







If you're looking for a peaceful mountain getaway this is the place. Ms Linda, the owner, met us there when we arrived and gave us a tour and very useful information about the area. We've rented in the mountains for the last four years and never met the owners so this was a pleasant and appreciated change. The cabin is very comfy and very well stocked. Just bring your groceries! The property and views are gorgeous. We caught fish in the pond and even saw a buck chase a doe through the yard one morning. We spent Thanksgiving there and ordered a turkey dinner from the Ingles deli in Hayesville (only about 15 minutes away) and everything was awesome. So even though the cabin feels isolated you're only a few minutes from town. We didn't want to leave and plan to book again. Thank you Ms Linda for everything!
