Come and enjoy the Majestic Smoky Mountains!!!
Our cabin has 2 Fireplaces, 3 large bedrooms including an inviting Bunkroom, 3 full Bathrooms, 2 large Living Rooms, a Family Game room and a HUGE fire-pit next to a lovely fresh water Mountain Creek.
"The perfect family get away!!!" That's how our guests describe our secluded, peaceful, mountain retreat - just one mile from the pristine waters of the Nantahala Lake.
We invite you to come and explore our secret swimming hole off the Bartram and Appalachian Trails, white water raft the Nantahala river, mountain bike, fish, water ski, golf, and enjoy endless exploring! Some of the most beautiful drives in the country are here.
Come reconnect with your family and nature!
You'll love it!
Tucked away amidst the cool fresh mountain air, you can pass the time listening to the soothing sounds of nature and rushing water, enjoy hiking, fishing, boating, biking, rafting, swimming or exploring.
You will feel at home the moment you arrive to the welcoming sight of an easily accessible driveway and parking area (4x4 not required), a large level grass yard and the perfect covered deck with a calming porch swing (note: garage is not available to renters).
The inside will remind you of a rustic vacation cabin dream with more room than you imagined possible. Beautiful hardwood floors, wood ceilings and walls, surround you in a relaxing atmosphere with all new plush, leather furniture and ample seating. The main level consists of a living room, kitchen, master bedroom & bath, 2nd bedroom with adjoining guest bathroom, and a spacious sunroom/dining room and playroom equipped with toys for tots and a game table for teens and adults.
Downstairs you will find a large family room, more leather sofas, a 56 inch big screen TV, movie/game library, laundry room, and 3rd bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds and full bathroom.
You'll find an outside entrance to a covered porch and beautiful screen room, as well as a back deck equipped with a gas grill. There is a winding creek running through the property partially fed by a small fresh water spring, perfect for drinking, playing or keeping beverages cool the old fashion way. The property is within walking distance to Lake Nanahala (about 1-2 miles), six miles from a public boat ramp, ten miles from Andrews where you will find the local grocery store, drug store, restaurants and more.
When you have conquered the dragon's tail, tired from white water rafting, fly fishing the river, gem mining, riding some of the most beautiful mountain bike trails in North America, playing in the waterfalls, exploring the scenic hiking trails or a fun filled day at the Lake, you can retreat to the comforts of the Choga Mountain Creek Cabin recluse and gather your party around the outdoor fire pit and sit in awe at some of the most vivid astronomy you have ever seen.
While we hope you're going to spend the bulk of your time outdoors enjoying all there is to enjoy in this area, we recognized it's nice to come home an just sit and relax. We do offer a nice collection of family movies and the use of a DVD, VHS player on a 57 inch big screen TV. There is WIFI and a landline phone for your convenience. as there is no cell phone coverage on the mountain.
Boating: Lake Nantahala is one of our favorite places to enjoy the spring, summer and fall. The water is clean and cool. You will find brochures in the cabin welcome binder for several different establishments that rent Pontoon or ski boats. We recommend “Lakes End” marina located on Wayah Rd. It is the closest and will get you out on the Lake in no time. Ask at the desk for a map of the lake and where you can tie up and enjoy the rope swings or hike to the waterfalls!
Rafting: There are multiple adventure centers that can cater to your white water needs, brochures are located in the cabin welcome binder. The closest and best value rafting companies are Carolina Outfitters and Paddle Inn Rafting Company.
Fishing: If you have little ones and want a guaranteed catch, there is a trout farm located about 10 miles from the cabin. Prices are reasonable, they provide poles, worms and will even gut and clean your trout for you.
For the more adventuresome fisherman we recommend the river along Wayah Rd. The further you go the more beautiful the scenery becomes. Just stop along the way and pick a spot not already occupied along the river. You can also try down Ole River Road just off of Junaluska Rd. or contact the Nantahala Outdoor center for more suggestions.
Hiking: Please enjoy the many trails and walking areas behind the house and up by the old church and cemetery. The old logging road behind the house will take you to Lake Nantahala. It is all family property and privately owned. We suggest taking a snack or light lunch and plenty of water.
The little white church and cemetery on the hill across the street is fun to explore. Also a fun family play spot is located just a ¼ mile further down Lil Choga Rd. It is a small area where the creek runs over the road. Our little ones like to “hike” down to splash and play in the cold mountain water.
Mountain Biking: Contact NOC for local maps and details on trails. Or check cabin welcome binder and NOC NC trail gide in cabin.
In Andrews: For those rainy days…there is a small, very affordable, local movie theater located on main street. Show times are normally 7 and 9pm
Out to Eat: There is a new Pizza buffet/Pub with a nice soup and salad bar located by the Family Dollar Store just off Main St. in Andrews. If you want to spice it up a little, try Monte Albon. Their authentic Mexican cuisine is delicious! In addition, the quaint little local restaurants on Main Street are a must try.
Shopping: Ingles in Andrews is the closest grocery store, about 20 minutes from the cabin. If you can’t find what you need there, there is a Wal-Mart in Murphy about 10 minute from Andrews
