The Space: Honeycomb Hollow features a wonderfully finished, fully-furnished living room, bathroom, and bedroom. The kitchen has refrigerator, microwave, stove and oven and ample countertop space while the bedroom boasts a queen size bed and an incredible view of the creek and neighboring mountains and farm animals. Heart pine floors and room galore. Rocking chairs on the porch provide a wonderful view of mountain sunrises and sunsets, gaze at the splendor of the mountains, meander around the property and creek, and go name a cow. In the heart of gem mining, canoeing, biking, this cabin nestled in the heart of the Nantahala Forest will become your favorite place away from home. Close to everything, you may choose to take a scenic hike on Appalachian Trail, eat a gourmet dinner at Highlands, journey from brewery to brewery, or just relax and stay home with someone you love. Rural setting away from the busy city but still close to civilization. Western Iotla Valley filled with pastures, creeks, and mountains (with some farm animals nearby).

Two additional 1 bedroom/1 bath cabins (The Feathered Nest and The Butterfly Bungalow) next door available for bookings, so bring your friends and family for reunions or getaways.
