Turnerstone Log Cabin Rentals
Nestled in the Blue Ridge chain of the Appalachian mountains, in the shadow of Pickens Nose Mountain, North Carolina just 5 miles from Dillard, Georgia is a very unique log cabin vacation rental hideaway. The lure of these early 1800's Appalachian style, log rental cabins in this setting is irresistible. Let your mind slip back in time. As you approach the cabins, you'll admire the hand-hewed craftsmanship that was used by the early Appalachian settlers and is still being duplicated today. Massive hemlock logs 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.
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.
The road ends at this secluded hideaway … meaning there is no through traffic. The property joins Betty's Creek (one of the most pristine, beautiful creeks in the area) and extends up Brushy Ridge Mountain where it joins the 24,500 acre Southern Nantahala Wilderness and Standing Indian Wildlife & Bear Reserve.
A marked trail leads from the cabins west 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.
Wild turkey come to the creek daily to drink. Other wildlife using our property and the adjoining wilderness include: bear, white-tailed deer, raccoon, skunk, fox, squirrels, eagles, grouse and an array of songbirds. This is a true mountain wilderness area that brings nature lovers back again and again.
