Escape to this private 3-bedroom, 3-bath Topton vacation rental nestled in the North Carolina mountains. 'Happy Place' sits in solitude at the end of a winding road perfect for groups seeking privacy and adventure. This newly renovated cabin features a stone fireplace, cathedral ceilings, and an expansive porch that will beckon you with its breathtaking views. Whether you're in search of trails and rapids or visiting towns like Andrews, Bryson City, and Nantahala, it’s just a stone's throw away.
-- THE PROPERTY --
*Please note the cabin is located on a very steep, unpaved road so 4-wheel drive or all-wheel drive is necessary*
Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2 (Bear Room): Full Bed | Bedroom 3 (Loft): Queen Bed, 2 Twin Beds with 2 Twin Trundle Beds
After conquering the terrain of Gator Ridge Road, take a load off on the 'Happy Place's' porch and soak in the views from the comfort of a rocking chair.
Once you've been broken of nature's trance, head into the 1,622-square-foot cabin and enjoy all of the luxuries of the great room. In front of the fireplace's billowing flame, you can lounge on the large sectional and watch the game on the flat-screen satellite TV.
The fully equipped kitchen boasts newly installed granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, making cooking for large groups a piece of cake. As your loved ones gather around the dining table for 6, they're sure to be impressed with the culinary chops of your group's chef.
Not in the mood to cook inside? Grill up some steaks on the porch's charcoal grill and have a good old-fashion southern barbecue.
Before retiring to one of the 3 bedrooms, wash off the Appalachian dust in one of the cabin's 2 shower/tub combos, or the walk-in shower in the master suite and head outside for an unforgettable evening. Gather around the fire pit and roast marshmallows under the millions of stars that light up the mountain sky.
Whether you choose the privacy of the master bedroom's king bed or the loft bedroom for 6, you'll wake up well-rested and ready for a day of mountain fun.
-- THE LOCATION --
Lace up your hiking boots and spend an afternoon on the A.T. The Appalachian Trail runs for 2,189 miles and sits just 1 mile from the cabin. No matter how much hiking experience you have, the Appalachian Trail is a must-do in Nantahala National Forest.
Looking to get your adrenaline pumping? Take a short 25-minute drive to the Nantahala Outdoor Center and sign up for some guided excursions. Whether you're looking to raft, zip-line, or kayak, you're sure to find a trip for you at Nantahala Outdoor Center.
If you want a change in scenery, head to Nantahala Lake or River and enjoy a fun day of boating or fly fishing with the family.
For a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience, check out the John C. Campbell Folk School 33 miles away in Brasstown. With events ranging from concerts to basketry classes, visitors of the school can spend the day learning a new skill while basking in a unique culture.
Try one of the area's locally-owned restaurants! Within 20 minutes of the cabin sit 2 area favorites, Lands End Diner and The Hub, which both serve delicious local foods with small-town charm.
