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.

Raised in New Jersey (too crowded). Chicago winters (too cold). Florida summers (too hot!). Clemson University grad (go Tigers!). And all we ever wanted to do was live in the mountains. We finally realized our dream and settled in the one of the friendliest small communities surrounded by nature's beauty which awes us every day. Peace. Nature. Tranquility. We found our serenity.

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.

Wish I Could Rate It 10 Stars

If I could rate Blackwell cabin 10 stars I would!! This cabin is the cleanest, well stocked cabin that we have ever stayed in. All you need is clothes, food, a few toiletries and your fishing gear. They have books, puzzles, games, hammock, fireplace, firepit, all of the kitchen supplies one could ever need, the list goes on and on. Linda is a great hostess, she left the best fresh cookies, fruit, wild flowers, doggie treats and snacks for us that you could imagine. All of those extras are such a nice touch, and I for one noticed them as soon as I walked in the door. We got exactly what we went there for, lots of rest and relaxation. We fished at the pond daily, and caught some trout and many bluegill. We ventured out on the trails to take in the beautiful scenery as well. My favorite part was laying in the hammock down at the creek everyday and just taking in all the sounds of nature that surround. This is definitely our happy place and we would

Property was Absolutely Amazing

The property was absolutely amazing! The views and scenery were perfect for relaxing. We enjoyed the walking trails by the pond and the creek. Seeing and feeding the bull, cows and the donkey was great! So cute. The Cabin was beautiful and very clean and organized and had plenty of everyday items you would need. We will definitely be back. Linda and Jorge were amazing hosts and very informative.

Long Peaceful Walks

Long peaceful walks... This property is just beautiful!! We had a wonderful time. Linda, the owner, personally greets you. The cabin was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed and more. She provided little thoughtful “extras” to our experience such as, fresh fruit, fresh flowers, sparkling cider, crackers, a dessert in the frig, and even dog treats for our pup. You can fish in the creek or pond, take long peaceful walks by the creek and/or enjoy s’mores at the fire pit. We highly recommend staying at this cabin.

Sunrise On The Deck

We had a great time from sunrise on the deck listening to the creek to sunset with everyone around a nice big dinner table. And there are definitely fish in the creek!
