Cherokee Cottage is a log cabin in the gated community of Mountain View Estates in Cherokee NC. The Cherokee NC location of this log cabin means that it is just a short drive from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, downtown Cherokee and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Add paved roads and large parking areas, enough room for trailers, and you can see why Mountain View Estates of Cherokee is a favorite of bikers and everyone else who wants easy access to the major highways, all the local attractions and luxury accommodations. Bryson City is about a 10 minute scenic drive away. White water rafting on the Nantahala river is around a 25 minute ride through some of the most scenic roads of North Carolina. All the roads leading to and from this cabin are paved. Cherokee Cottage has a great mountain view from the large covered front porch and hot tub.
Cherokee Cottage is located in the home of the Cherokee Indians, but this log cabin is no pioneer era cabin. Cherokee Cottage is a real log cabin with the charm of a traditional log mountain home and all the luxuries of a modern home. From the paved parking area a set of stair on the left access the large covered front porch with gazebos on both ends. The first gazebos is to the left of the stairs. This is a great spot to enjoy the fresh mountain air dining out with the family. For a more quiet way to watch the mountain view, kill some time in one of the rocking chairs on the front covered porch. The gazebo on the far end of the porch is home to the most relaxing way to spend a quiet evening, soaking in the warm massaging waters of a covered outdoor hot tub. The front door is in about the middle of the front porch. A second set of steps from the parking area provide access to the cabins back door. The far end of the cabin features a fire pit area with natural log bench seating. Toasting marshmallows over the crackling flames in the cool evening air creates special memories you will always take with you.
Step through the entry of this cabin and you will know your cabin selection was perfect. Warm wood tones and charming black bears invite you into this lovely space. Vaulted ceilings and chalet windows allow for plenty of sunlight to stream into this great room. Its shared with the dining and kitchen area, allowing for a great atmosphere of entertaining. Ideal for a small family or group of friends. The living room has comfortable seating surrounding a stone gas fireplace. Watching the warm flames dance or a favorite movie from the satellite TV placed above the mantle makes lazy evenings even more cozy. The kitchen has black granite counter tops, stainless appliances, and plenty of work space for preparing delicious meals together. A couple of bar stools at the breakfast bar give extra seating along with the handcrafted dining table. From the kitchen there is an exit onto a small covered porch, a few steps lead down to the gas grill, close to the kitchen so heading outside to grill up a juicy steak is effortless. Back inside, a short hall from the great room leads past a half bath on the right, on the left a closet houses a washer and dryer. Next you enter the master suite. A very romantic space with a lush king size bed. Its placed so you can snuggle in and look out to the mountain view through the sliding glass doors on the left or watch the glow of a warm fire from the second gas fireplace. This space makes a perfect haven to escape and spend quality time with each other. There is also a satellite TV should you ever find a chance to watch it. A full size private bath with tub is adjacent to this room.
Up the stairs from the great room you will find the other 2 bedrooms and another full bath with tub. Partially exposed to the living space below there is an open area with a futon for extra sleeping space for hanging out enjoying the game table. In the center walkway between the bedrooms is the bathroom. On the left side a queen size bedroom pulls you in with pleasing decor and space to settle in. On the right side a king size bedroom is waiting, with a large window overlooking the outdoor view. Both of these bedrooms have satellite TV, so bedtime offers privacy to unwind with everyone's favorite show. .
