Escape the summer heat or enjoy the magic of winter in the treetops of the Smoky Mountains. At Treetop Cabin, you will have everything you need to be cozy and comfortable while you enjoy an authentic mountain experience. The floor plan was designed to be ideal for three couples, or for a couple with children, all desiring their own private spaces and rooms to be together. This charming mountain cabin has three floors and three bedrooms with the 3rd bedroom being the upstairs loft. Snuggle up in front of the traditional stone front wood burning fireplace and watch a movie on the HD TV on satellite, DVD or VCR. Nestled high in the treetops,at 4000 feet elevation, the cabin offers westward views of the Great Smoky Mountains and eastward views towards beautiful Maggie Valley. Enjoy a round of golf at one of many courses in the Western North Carolina foothills, fly-fish for trout in an icy mountain stream, rafting in the tumbling Nantahala or French Broad Rivers, or snowboard down nearby Cataloochee Ski Area. Then relax, in the evening, submersed in the 'hot tub under the stars' while cooking dinner on the grill.
