Our cozy little log cabin is nestled in the mountains of the Nantahala National Forest at the edge of Nantahala Lake - between Franklin and Andrews North Carolina. We are in an ideal location for hiking, fishing, boating, and swimming. We’re literally 15 minutes off the Appalachian and Bartram Hiking trails, several mountain bike trails, and lots of little stream crossings and waterfalls. If you’re into scenic drives or motorcycling, the area is flooded with world famous drives - including the infamous "Tail of the Dragon", Cherahola Skyway, and the Smokey Mountain Parkway. Hunting season is incredible around this area! Wild Turkey, Deer, and Black Bear are just a few of the choices. If you’d rather be outdoors than anywhere else, then this is the area for you! Other than our other property in Alaska, I can’t think of a more beautiful place. Grill out on the deck! But if you don’t like to cook your own meals or forgot your favorite fishing lure, the town of Andrews is only 10 miles away.
Stay up late - because star gazing the night sky is just phenomenal and finding new constellations never seen under city lights is a regular occurrence.
Enjoy the fire pit! Bring some s'mores and your pocket knife!
Take our canoe out to Rabbit Island and try the Rope Swing. Hike the Bartram Trail to a secret Swimming Hole and Cliff Diving.
Gather some wild Black Berries on the trail behind the cabin.
Take a nap. Enjoy the view. Read a book. Hey - you're on vacation!

About Mike Henrie
As a child I would come to this property on extended family reunions. My mother was raised on the property when there was no running water or electricity. Enchanted by the stories of her childhood, my father he loved visiting her family and hiking the mountain trails with my Uncles. When my Grandfather passed away in the 1989 my family inherited a parcel of the property that had been in our family since the 1830's. I embraced my father's vision of developing and building on our 'family' land in North Carolina and shared that vision with my wife when we first got married. Even as we were finishing our degrees at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah we began saving. In 2003 I joined the Air Force and was stationed at Warner Robins, GA. We practically raised our boys on the weekends hiking up and down the mountains trying to find the right spot for our own cabin. In 2005 my Uncle Frank granted us 4.88 acres of his inheritance and we eventually built the cabin you see here. In 2007 we were transferred to Alaska. After 6 heavenly years there we received orders, and in 2013 made the epic 45 day journey from Alaska to Virginia - via 17 National Parks, to our current duty station at Langley AFB, VA. In January 2017 I purchased my Uncle Frank's remaining parcel which incorporates the shed and field. Our plan is to further develop the property with more cabins.
Mike Henrie purchased this cabin in 2005
