Blackwell Branch Cabin… It’s all about the creek.
And the pond. And the mountains beyond. Peace, nature, serenity. Fall asleep to the sounds of the rushing creek right outside your window. Open the French doors wide and let the fresh breeze in. Enjoy morning coffee on the wrap-around deck overlooking the creek, watch deer in the meadow and geese in the pond. Relax in the evening on the rocking chair porch. Let the kids run – they’ll love the playhouse or just messing around in the creek.
Blackwell Branch Cabin lies nestled between two creeks. It sits right on rushing Tusquittee Creek which can be heard from every room in the cabin and in addition, Blackwell Branch (another small creek) runs along the western edge of the property. This smaller creek is perfect for younger kids to get their feet wet, exploring under rocks for salamanders and frogs. The cabin boasts wide wrap-around decks, a rocking chair front porch and even a two-story playhouse for the kids! A large section of the rear deck is closed off with gates to keep your small children and pets secure. There’s a large fire-pit for nighttime campfires right on the banks of the creek. Take a snooze in the hammock or idle the day away on the yard swing. Watch the kids try their hand at fishing in the creek. Catch your dinner right from your backyard and cook it on the gas BBQ grill.
The property: The cabin sits on three level wooded acres along Tusquittee Creek with a gravel pull-through drive. Serenity Lane is a dead-end road with only four homes– the first is Gili’s Cove Cottage (our sister property), next is an acre of woods, then Blackwell Branch Cabin, another wooded lot, then our own home. Beyond our home at the dead-end is our one and only neighbor. We own all the wooded property between Gili’s Cove Cottage and the Cabin, so children (and grown-ups) can feel free to wander among the trees and wildflowers. Parents can feel comfortable allowing their children to run and play around the property, in the woods and along the creek.
Interior: 3 bedrooms & 2 full baths (1500sf)
Upstairs is the master bedroom loft with queen-size four-poster bed, two closets and one large dresser. The second bedroom upstairs has a single bed with a pull-out trundle. Between the two bedrooms is a full bath with shower/tub and a large closet to stash away all your things. The third bedroom is downstairs and has an antique metal bed (double), closet and large dresser with TV. Next to it is the other bathroom which has an old-fashioned claw-foot soaking tub, perfect for unwinding after a day on the trails. (The stacked washer/dryer is in a closet in this bathroom.)
The downstairs living space has an open plan with kitchen open to the dining room and living room. Dining room has a large farm-style table. There is a second smaller table in the dining room area for games & puzzles and setting up your laptop. The living room has a large wrap-around sectional sofa w/recliner that sits right in front of the river-rock hearth and wood-burning stove, and a large HD TV. Kitchen, dining room and living room all open out to the wide, wrap-around decks with the creek right outside. The large rocking chair front porch is a great place to watch for deer as they trek from the pond up the mountain at the end of the day.
Internet, TV and telephone:
Keeping in mind that cellular service here in the mountains can be somewhat erratic, we’ve provided a landline telephone (unlimited long distance in the continental US) and hi-speed internet (Wi-Fi) to help you keep in touch. TV is provided by DirectTV and a Roku streaming device lets you use your Netflix, Hulu and other accounts.
Equipment & Supplies:
Bedrooms & baths: All sheets and towels are provided, with extra pillows, sheets, blankets & towels in the linen closet. Bathrooms are supplied with bar soap, liquid hand soap, extra toilet paper and Kleenex, and hairdryer. Kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, coffeemaker, crockpot, toaster, blender, hand-mixer, all pots & pans, dishwasher soap and liquid dish soap, hand soap, paper towels, foil and wraps. Living room: We provide a starter supply of wood for the wood-burning stove and for the big fire-pit out by the creek. You’ll also find plenty of dead-fall wood on the property. Reading library, games & puzzles: You’ll find a large collection of books of all types in the bookcase and nightstands. A supply of jigsaw puzzles and games is also provided to help keep the kids entertained.
