Rent Our Cabin and Be Prepared To Chill
Come to Turnstone Vacation Cabin Rentals, and be prepared to relax, rock in our high-backed porch rockers, smell the clean mountain air, sit on huge rocks or your deck beside the creek and let your cares drift away…. Maybe you’ll spot a wild turkey. Perhaps you’d enjoy fly-fishing for rainbow trout a nearby trout farm, it’s just down the creek and you don’t even need a license. (You gotta’ try grilled rainbow trout… a real mountain treat) or spend the afternoon walking the marked and maintained mountain trails through the wilderness area or along the creek by our cabin rentals. NO POLLUTION … NO CROWDS … or schedules to keep.
Each cabin has a full kitchen with microwave, coffee maker, toaster; Rock fireplace, VCR with TV, telephone, BBQ Grill, porch rockers, swing, all linens, and towels. Ceiling fans cool the cabins on warm summer days; electric wall units heat each room for your comfort. Massive hemlock log cabins with their dovetail notched corners and chinking, exposed ceiling beams held in place by wooden pegs, a sleeping loft, pine floors and tin roofs form these primitive style homesteads. The charm of the 1700’s and 1800’s but with all of the conveniences of today.
A marked trail leads from our cabin rentals northwest to join the scenic Appalachian Trail at Betty’s Creek Gap (about 1 1/2 hour hike). There is an abundance of wild flowers in this Appalachian Rainforest from early spring until November; flowering trees; flame azaleas; mountain laurel; rhododendron; the many varieties of ferns; the clear tumbling streams; all add delight to your visit in all seasons. If you plan on day hiking, don’t forget a rain coat or parka.
The road ends at our secluded hideaway … meaning there is no through traffic. Our cabin property joins Betty’s Creek (one of the most pristine, beautiful creeks in the area) and extends up Brushy Ridge Mountain where we join the 24,500 acre Southern Nantahala Wilderness and Standing Indian Wildlife & Bear Reserve.
Be sure to bring a sweater or light jacket even in the summer, since the evening temperature often drops below 55 degrees from the 5000 foot high surrounding mountain peaks. The valley and creek of our cabin rentals is bathed with a very cool evening breeze coming down from the 5000 foot high surrounding mountain peaks, where we join the 24,500 acre Southern Nantahala Wilderness and Standing Indian Wildlife & Bear Reserve..
