There are two bedrooms and one full bathroom. The first bedroom has a queen-size bed and a French door that opens to a porch. The second bedroom has two full-size beds and ample space. In the bathroom, guests will find an elegant sink, a large mirror, a spacious toilet area, and a generously sized shower, harmoniously enclosed by wood paneling on both the walls and the ceiling.

In the living room, guests will find an armchair, a coffee table, and a couch flanked by side tables and lamps, all tastefully selected and in keeping with the overall décor. Adjoining the living room, the fully equipped kitchen comes with an oven, a stove, a toaster, a coffeemaker, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, and plenty of cabinets and granite-top counter space. Wide enough to eat at and cook on at the same time, the main section of the counter doubles as a bar, complemented by a pair of stools. In between the kitchen and living room spaces, guests will find a wooden dining table bathed in natural light from the many windows of the adjacent wall.
Other amenities include a washer, a dryer, central air conditioning and heating, and flat-screen televisions. Outside, there is a porch, a deck, a fire pit, and a round hot tub overlooking the tranquil creek.
A range of modern amenities and comforts are available in the accommodations, including Wi-Fi, central heating, and local phone service in the cabins, central air conditioning in the yurts, and televisions in both the cabins and yurts.

The opportunities for outdoor adventure are nearly endless, both on land and on water. On land, visitors can go hiking in the surrounding Nantahala National Forest or the nearby Joyce Kilmer Forest, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Bartram Trail, and the Appalachian Trail. Besides hiking, there are a number of other ways they can explore the landscape—from zip-line tours, canopy tours, and Jeep tours, to horseback riding, mountain biking, and driving along the Mountain Waters Scenic Byway.
On the water, visitors can rent pontoon boats, fishing boats, ski boats, canoes, and kayaks, as well as go wakeboarding, jet skiing, and rafting, with both guided and unguided trips available from local companies. For a more low-key outing on the lake, visitors can go on a dinner cruise. The lake is also a prime location for fishing, with many species of fish, including trout, bass, sunfish, crappie, salmon, and walleye.
For shopping and dining, visitors can go to a nearby general store, fishing equipment store, rustic market, and various restaurants, as well as the on-site outdoor supply store, cafe, and grill. For entertainment and edification, they can take advantage of a number of golf courses, the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts, the Andrews Twin Cinema, the Ruby City Gem Museum, the Macon County Historical Society Museum, and the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad.
At the Cherokee Indian Reservation, visitors can step back into time to experience traditional Cherokee culture at Oconaluftee Indian Village and learn more about it at the Cherokee Indian Museum. For those who want to try their luck, Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort awaits as well.
