My Husband and spent a few nights at the River Birch cabin which is larger than the White Oak. We decided to stay at the River Birch because of the creek-river being so close and because the River Birch is the most secluded of the 3 places offered.
First I would like to praise the owner, she is a very plesant young woman with so much attention to detail. Around every corner and tucked in every crease of this amazing cabin you will find something special. From the flowers to the antiques back to the decor and on to all the little critters that you will meet, there is definately something to put a smile on everyones face.
If you like to fish, read, sit or walk and enjoy the beautiful gardens the owner has grown all around the cabin .... this place is for you!
As soon as we opened the door, the candles were lit and the entire cabin had a smell of spice in the air.
The decor inside makes you feel so comfortable...like you have lived here all your life.
My husband and I sat for hours on the porch. And in the mornings we would sip coffee and eat apple bread that we picked up at the Ingles bakery in nearby bryson city.
This was the most peaceful time I have ever had.
4 days of peace, 2 happy people and we will definately be back.
By the way, the king size bed was soooo comfortable!
OOOOH.... The smoky mountain R&R runs along the track behind the cabin... around 10:30 and 2:30 you can stand on the porch and wave at all the children (and adults) that are riding the train, for some reason I found this to be so much fun! They wave like there aint no tomorrow and so did I!
Anyway, best thing I can say is this cabin is not Disney World, but its just as magical!! A place where I really want to spend time with everyone I love, and worth more than twice the price paid.
I spent a few lovely days at the Alarka Creek Cabins. We stayed in the River Birch, which I believe is the largest of the cabins. Six of us stayed there quite comfortably, with plenty of room. A TV was in the cabin, but we spent all of our time on the back porch or on the small stretch of soft grass next to the creek, watching the groundhogs across the creek scamper along the rocks or the birds build nests and flit through the air. I stayed on one of the bunk beds and found it to be quite comfortable. The kitchen was well suited for cooking and was stocked with the basics.
Wireless internet is available in the cabins. Bryson City is close by with grocery stores and restaurants. We ate at a Mexican place that had authentic Mexican food - quite a pleasant surprise in the mountains! Hiking trails, tubing and plenty of rafting places are all nearby. We meant to get to these places, but somehow, we spent our entire time on the back porch, talking to each other.
The hostess/owner is charming and has created magical little nooks of flowers, water gardens and tiny statues - there's something beautiful to look at around every corner! I am already thinking of how to bring some more friends to stay here - I want to share these lovely cabins with them.
