Property Details

"Shady Creek" is the ideal Creek side Vacation Cabin, offering a warm wood interior with a Cozy Stone Fireplace, topped with a 55" Flat Screen "smart" TV, as the living room focal point. The Comfortable Leather furniture set (upgraded in late 2019) provides the perfect place to relax at the end of a day Fishing, Hiking, and Exploring... The Open Spacious "Great Room" boasts vaulted ceilings and opens to the covered porch complete with Rocking Chairs over looking the swiftly moving and melodious Creek...
Bring your fishing poles, your dinner is swimming just a few feet away from the covered deck!

Shady Creek Cabin is an excellent choice for your vacation, especially if you are looking for a cabin in the Mountains that offers relatively flat access roads to the front door...

Romantic, Relaxing, and Revitalizing!

For those of you that do need to work, wireless internet is unlimited, and is complimentary.
This unique log - two bedroom two bath mountain cabin retreat is located in a very private setting, with Alarka Creek right in the back yard. Oak hardwood floors, wood interior and vaulted ceilings add to the mountain feel. There are two spacious and inviting bedrooms with Log Beds, that are locally handcrafted from native wood. (The second satellite TV is in the main level bedroom).
In the great room living area there are large windows that let nature in no matter what the weather. You’ll be quite comfortable in the Open concept living room, and dining on a table handcrafted by a local artisan.
In the main level master suite, there is a second flatscreen TV. Upstairs offers a second Master suite (both bedrooms offer queen beds, luxury linens and bedding).

Out back, along side the creek, there is a sparkling hot tub, to relax your aching bones after your adventures in the mountains. After you soak away your stress, wrap yourself in one of the fluffy bathrobes we provide for your comfort. Additionally, along side the Creek, there is a Fire-Pit to gather round and tell stories, roast marshmallows, and just star gaze…

The full kitchen is equipped with stainless appliances and has plenty of space for preparing your meals. If you like to cook outside, the creekside BBQ grill is your spot! You can enjoy your meals at the log dining table or out back on the picnic table overlooking the creek.
Enjoy the outdoors around this cabin with the Creek that is as wide and many rivers, and stocked with Brown, Brook, and Rainbow Trout! - Hatchery supported by the state of NC.
Creekside you can wile away the afternoon fishing for your dinner, dine at the picnic table, or enjoy a campfire at the fire-pit in the evening.
For our Guest's convenience, there is a full size stacked washer and dryer.

Just 10 minutes from Bryson City, and within 20 minutes of The scenic train depot, white water rafting, deep creek tubing, kayaking, horseback riding, mountain biking at the Tsali, swimming and boating at Fontana Lake, shopping, dining at several restaurants, and so many more area activities!

For your convenience:

... Also available is our Shopping service. If you would like to arrive at the Cabin with your Groceries already stocked, ask for details, we will have everything waiting for you upon your arrival.

... If you would like to enjoy a Spa Massage Service at the Cabin, it is a good idea to book in advance to assure availability. Your Professional Massage Therapist will come to you, so when you are done, they quietly disappear and leave you to relax!

... If your vacation dates are during 'Season' or Holidays and you plan to rent a pontoon or fishing boat, it may be a good idea to reserve in advance! Lake Fontana is primarily National Forest, Smoky Mountains, and Federally owned, so the Lake is never 'Busy', but the few available rental boats do get booked up.

Our Pet Policy Overview:

Most of our Cabins are Pet Friendly. Our Pet acceptance varies, and is based on the amount of space for our 4 legged Guests to enjoy.  As of 12/10/2020 Shady Creek is no longer Pet Friendly, so if you are traveling with your 4 legged family member, please ask about our pet friendly cabins.

Cancellation Policy

Our Cancellation Policy "In a nutshell": 
​Each cabin is individually Owned and typically is the only property the specific Owner has to offer for rent. When a Guest occupies time on this Owner's calendar, then has to cancel the reservation, the property may remain empty. Although we empathize with your emergency, it really is not fair to "transfer" your financial hardship to the property Owner.
* Travelers/Cancellation Insurance will be offered at the time you reserve the cabin. If cancelling or encountering an unfortunate emergency  is a concern for you, We highly recommend you purchase this Insurance. Travelers Insurance is a "per reservation" policy, not a "per person" policy, and covers much more than just cancellations. To learn more now, go to itravelinsured. The cost is approximately 6.95% of the total.

FULL REFUND - Cancellations that are made more than sixty (60) days prior to the arrival date. (Less the greater of 5% or $75.00 Cancellation/Modification Fee)
50% REFUND - Cancellations with over 30 days Notice (Less the greater of 5% or $75.00 Cancellation/Modification Fee)
Cancellations that are made within 30 days of the arrival date, or changes that result in a shortened stay, forfeit the full advance payment and reservation deposit. Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent, however, Credit will be Offered to Guests in good standing, for cancelled dates that are re-rented. 

COVID-19 PROVISION: In the event Swain County would implement Travel Restrictions, or Closes Short Term Rentals, we will offer to reschedule reservations to within 1 year. Modification/Change Fee will be waived. Covid-19 Cleaning Policies and Procedures will be emailed to all Guests, prior to arrival. *Cleaning Products are EPA Regulated *Cleaning Procedures are per CDC Guidelines.

Deposit Policy

50% is Paid at the time of reserving the cabin. Balance is paid 60 days prior to check in. (To request an exception/alternate payment arrangement, please contact us).
Details available at ncmountains.net/rental-rules/
***Book 6 nights and the 7th night is Free! NOTE: For reservations of 2 weeks or more, mid-stay Cleaning will need to be added at a discounted rate.

Beautiful cabin with beautiful views! I’d have to say my favorite part was sleeping with the window open and falling asleep to the sound of the creek. Incredibly peaceful weekend.

"This house is a perfect place to relax and be in a remote area without any of the complications of being up the mountain. The peace and tranquility of the creek out the back door can only be matched by the beautiful stars in the night sky from the hot tub."

"We had a wonderful stay at Shady Creek, and enjoyed exploring the local area: rafting on the Nantahala, hiking to Alarka falls, hiking trails in the National Park, horse riding at smokemont... The kids enjoyed rock hopping and catching salamanders by the creek. The hot tub is perfect for relaxing and star gazing in after a day of hiking. The cabin is well equipped and clean, with a classic cabin feel. The management company were helpful and responsive."

"We had an amazing time meeting up with old friends at Shady Creek! The pristine cabin was perfect for 2 couples! It was exactly like the pictures! I hope We spent most of time there at the cabin enjoying the hot tub and relaxing by the fire pit. Each night we had a spectacular “firefly show”. The sound of rushing creek was very relaxing. Our little dog was even able to enjoy a little shallow pool in the creek where she wadded and cooled off. Shady Creek is a definite do-over!! Thank you for sharing this beautiful cabin with us!"

"Wonderful Retreat!!"

by Eric S.

03/01/2020

My family and I had a great time relaxing and enjoying all the cabin had to offer. We had our pups with us and they enjoyed running around the yard and playing around the creek. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed roasting marshmallows around the fire pit and learning to skip rocks!! It was a well needed escape with everything going on today. The TV remained off! It was very enjoyable being disconnected for a weekend! The cabin was very clean and better than advertised! we will return!!

"Great property and a cozy cabin to stay in. House was clean and stocked properly, wood and gas for the grill & fire pit was ready to go, and the hot tub was great. Kathleen & April responded to any question or concern rapidly and took care of us quite well. Personal favorite feature was the creek behind the house. Took a glass of sweet tea and relaxed next to or in the creek every afternoon, so relaxing. Would recommend the property to anyone."

"Shady Creek Vacation"

by Mildred S.

Our stay a Shady Creek was great. The pictures are very accurate. The rushing creek outside the cabin was my favorite space though. It was a very enjoyable stay! Highly recommend!

"We can’t wait to return!"

by Anonymous

06/01/2019

We had so much fun on our vacation and stay at Shady Creek! The cabin is off a drive with a few other houses that are within sight, but not close. They are not as nice as Shady Creek, but the cabin does sit down by itself next to a creek and feels very secluded. You’ll be spending all of your time out back so you won’t even see them. The cabin was even more beautiful than in the pictures and was super clean, had modern appliances, super comfy beds and had everything we needed. When a small problem did arise one evening, we contacted property maintenance, and we were contacted immediately to remedy the problem. Steve even followed through the next morning to make sure we had no more issues. We enjoyed the hot tub the most and it was pretty cool to see fireflies in the evening while relaxing! It’s only a 10 minute or so drive into Bryson City for groceries or restaurants. Perfect home base for going out to raft and explore nearby cities and towns. While we were there, we rafted on the Ocoee and French Broad Rivers through NOC which were awesome, spent a day having fun and drinking Moonshine in Gatlinburg, did Sliding Rock and we went on brewery tours in Asheville. In Bryson City, we had fun tubing on Deep Creek and spending time at the NOC Outdoor Center. By far, it was our funnest vacation ever and we’re already planning on coming back to Shady Creek next Summer, hopefully for longer!

"We have been coming to North Carolina for many years. Me personally 40 years off and on during vacations and I can say that this trip to the Shady Creek cabin was by FAR the best most relaxing time we have ever spent in any rental ANYWHERE! Centrally located between attractions and sights of East Tennessee to the beautiful mountains and waterfalls of Western North Carolina. Bryson city is a cozy friendly small town that makes you feel welcomed and at home immediately. Take a trip on the Smokey mountain railway or settle down with a book outside by the creek, relax in the hot tub or go for a walk. So many choices! Steve and Kathleen are truly excellent host. Well worth every penny!"

My Husband and I decided to send our 30th wedding anniversary in the smoky mountains and shady Creek was the perfect choice! We had an Amazing and relaxing time fishing at or in the Creek as well as enjoying the fire pit and hot tub. We never once talked or thought about work or anything else other than our majestic peacefulness we were experiencing. We absolutely plan on revisiting, and hope others enjoy their visit as much as we did!

My girlfriend use to live in this area and had a place down by fast river rafting and has been looking for a place for years although nothing will ever take the place of what she had " for sentimental reasons" this place really made an impression on her as well as myself ,it was truly a pleasure to stay here it was very clean, comfortable and peaceful and out of all the cabins we've rented in the past this one has them all beat we have no reason to rent any other cabin and as long as it stays as a rental you have our business thank you for the opportunity to stay in such an amazing home we haven't stopped talking about it.

The property was so wonderful! The hot tub and firepit made the atmosphere great. But the Alarka River flowing and babbling behind the house was perfect. Rocking chairs on the back porch, comfortable beds, big bathrooms, and a well equipped kitchen made me feel like I was at home. Thank you for offering this beautiful place.

"Amazing time at Shady Creek! Perfect for us and our dogs!"

Perfect location...the creek was the prettiest we've seen!

"Shady Creek Cabin was so much fun. When pulled up after a long drive, we were speechless. The cabin was more beautiful in person. It is very private and has such lush greenery in every direction. We soaked in the hot tub, roasted marshmallows by the fire pit, tubed down the creek, hiked.... Had a blast! The beds, oh my! I have never slept so well away from home. That was a huge plus! The kids did a lot of fishing. They have never had much luck in other creeks in the mountains. They couldn't even keep count anymore. It was crazy... They loved every second of it! We will definitely be back. Shady Creek Cabin and it's private setting was perfect for what we were looking for. I can't forget the fireflies! There were so many at night. It was magical looking. If I could rate this cabin 1 to 10, I would give it a 11! It was so wonderful and peaceful, with so many things to do right there on the property. Thank you so much for our time. Our memories were made and we are so thankful!"

"This cabin was wonderful,beautiful and better than imagined. The special touches that were provided were awesome. We could fish right from the back yard, caught enough fish for supper( brown, brook and rainbow trout) We had plenty of things to do when we were not relaxing in the jacuzzi, we rode the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad and saw a live outdoor drama “Unto These Hills”. I am seriously thinking about renting this cabin again next year..... can go wrong with such a wonderful place!"

I just want to let you know that we just loved our stay in this little cabin in the woods. Going to bed every night with the windows open listening to the water run.... The wonderful fresh smell of woods and flowers and the water. I even sat in the very cold water stream and enjoyed it with my glass of wine. I am so coming back again. Again Thank you for everything. Our 20th Wedding anniversary was GREAT!!

"My husband and I spent the week of our 30th wedding anniversary at Shady Ceek and it was amazing. We were greeted by a beautiful open floored, vaulted ceilings, wood cabin decorated beautifully. It rained most of the week but we didn't care! We trout fished almost every day, took walks up and down creek bed, played cards, enjoyed the fireplace, hot tub and fire pit. It was the most relaxing and enjoyable trip we have ever taken. We WILL be back!"

"We loved our stay at Shady Creek! Roasting hot dogs and marshmallows at the fire pit beside the creek was a perfect way to spend our vacation. The kitchen was very clean and well stocked with dishes, glassware, utensils, and cookware including a griddle. The owner also does a good job of keeping the cabin well stocked with towels which is helpful given the jacuzzi and Creek. My favorite thing was to open the windows and doors in the evening so we could listen to the Creek."

"We stayed in Shady Creek Cabin for fall break. Cabin is even more beautiful than pictures show. Very well stocked up and just perfect charmer to relax after exploring Bryson City. Our boys loved playing in the creek while we enjoyed coffee on the back porch listening to creek and nature sounds. They tried fishing but no luck. We went on the close by hike where three waterfalls are located, rode the train, went horseback riding and explored Nantahala Village. Our trip was a true adventure and Bryson City is a true relaxation point to escape from busy society. Grocery store is near by. Kathleen Ford was great on answering any questions we had. Looking forward to more visits to this beautiful cabin and City. ❤"
