Nantahala Cabin's Vacation
Nantahala Cabins Writer’s Retreat
Recently, I have had the good fortune of staying at Nantahala Cabins, (Nantahala is Cherokee for, “Land of the noon-day sun”). Normally, I always stay in Cabin #8, “The Deer Glen”. Where I like to get away to write and relax. Speaking of which, I will be staying this coming week from July 24th until the 26th and I am looking forward to it. This is a picture of the sunset from the deck of Cabin 8.
Hot Tub Heaven
I enjoy sitting out on the deck and watching the mountains change throughout the course of the day. Watching the sun come from behind the cabin can be seen as its rays of light begin to fill the forest of trees right in front of you. Of course, the best way to enjoy watching is from the hot tub on the front deck.

Their official website
The link to their website
I decided to add a link to Nantahala Cabins official website so you, the reader can make reservations. Now, bear in mind that I do not make any money from posting this link. However, I have gotten requests for how to contact them and this seems to be the best way to answer that question. During COVID-19, (Coronavirus), staying somewhere that is remote is idealistic for those wanting to take a vacation and social distancing is not an issue when you stay here. Each cabin has ample room for avoiding coming into contact with anyone outside of your family or group.

Nature and Solitude
When I think about it, although the pictures do show of beauty, you are missing out on the sounds of nature. Sometimes, I’ll see rabbits nearby, munching on grass and leaves. Also, I have seen chipmunks chasing each other down by the small meadow. Squirrels like to run along the fence posts and a wide variety of birds chirping. Nantahala Cabins, no matter which cabin you choose, brings you to the heart of nature and solitude.
Glamping in style!
Lots to do...
One morning, I was up early and saw the clouds clinging to the valley commonly known as the Nantahala Gorge. I just heard the train whistle blowing, on its way to the gorge. One of the great things about coming to Nantahala Cabins is the fact that it puts you close to many outdoor activities such as: zip-lining, white water rafting, hiking, bike trails, waterfalls and Finger Lake. I, on the other hand, enjoy being indoors where once you close the door, you cannot hear anything outside.
Relax or take on our wilderness.
Cabin #8, “The Deer Glen”, is more like a house than a cabin. IT comes complete with a washer and dryer. The cabin has to bedrooms with two full bathrooms. The kitchen comes complete with a glass-top stove, microwave and Fridge. Also, you will find a complete set of dishes and cookware. I, on the other hand take advantage of the grill. Speaking of…all cabins come with hot tubs and grill areas like Cabin 8’s…
Looking forward to staying again
Each cabin has HDTV, WiFi, A fireplace and a hot Tub. Simply cozy! If you notice, there is a binder on the coffee table. Inside is a list of area activities with maps and information. As for me, I just enjoy the fire provided it is cold enough to use it. Either way, I will plop onto the couch, grab my laptop and start working on a poem or a book.
As I said earlier, I will be staying at Nantahala Cabins this coming week and I will be adding on more pictures and thoughts to this article, at that time.
