About Sharon Shortt
Our cabin was built in 2000 - from clearing the land, to watching our 765 foot deep fresh spring water well be drilled - it was a huge project. It took over two years to build!
Why Sharon Shortt chose Cashiers
Living in Florida - lakes were not appealing to us - a rapid creek is exactly what we wanted - and got with this propety!
What makes this Cabin unique
This is an "Authentic" LOG CABIN "Hearing" the beautiful rapid creek, is so soothing. Walk into the cabin and leave the hectic pace of life outside the front door... https://thefrontporchgourmet.com/2018/08/13/without-a-shadow-of-a-doubt-redefining-a-vacation/

There was a power outage when we arrived on Friday. No power and water until 11:30pm. We found out on the second day that refrigerator is not working. Most of our food items went bad. There was a wrong phone number of cabin caretaker on HomeAway web site. I texted her about refrigerator issue and she replied to me “Ladyyyy!! This is NOT CARLA for the millionth time“. Internet wasn’t working too. We found a big spider in the standing shower area while someone taking a shower. Lot of spider web in the cabin. We couldn’t stayed for 3 days and left early.
Unfortunately, no one has any control over power outages. There is nothing wrong with the refrigerator - guests who checked in after this guest’s stay, had a large group and reported no issues with the refrigerator. A spider in the shower - could happen in any home - but especially in the mountains where you are surrounded by trees and forest. I have no idea how this guest received an old information sheet, I always update it on the HomeAway site and will call HomeAway to ascertain what could have happened.
This guest failed to mention that I was vacationing in Italy at the time of the power outage and still returned his text immediately, contacted the electric company and gave him the contact information for the company so he could stay informed.
Spacious Cabin with Character and Charm
Beautiful cabin nestled in the woods in close proximity to Cashiers. Ample room for a large group. An incredible game room well furnished with all sorts of game tables. Cabin has a very nice and welcoming aroma from the logs. Home is very well built with 2 large porches above a rushing creek on the backside. Loved relaxing in the rockers on the porch. Had a issue with front door lock, but it did not deter from our enjoyment of the cabin.
Wonderful secluded cabin perfect for family get-away especially for an event like the solar eclipse that we enjoyed right out front. Tumbling creek singing to us in the background at all times certainly restorative. Fabulous cooks' kitchen, huge fully equipped game room, and fun collectibles. Far off the beaten path to encourage a true vacation. Loved it!
Fantastic property for unwinding from a hard days work
Our crew of seven enjoyed our stay with family style cooking, relaxed play (football, ping pong and pool) and comfortable bedding.
A very short walk to the creek and small falls was pretty zen in such a fantastic natural backdrop.
Would highly recommend and hope to stay again.
My (fairly large) family stayed at this house over the weekend, and it's absolutely everything it was rumored to be! It's beautiful and secluded and just loaded to the gills with rustic charm. The house is just *enormous*, clean and well-provisioned. I certainly hope we have another opportunity to stay at this residence.
We didn't have much extra time for activities around the area, but there was an Ingles just up the road, and we were able to cook breakfasts for everyone in the fabulous kitchen! Two ovens and six burners (or eight... I can't remember at this point) meant multiple people could cook to keep everyone fed.
The creek is JUST out back, a minute's walk down a gorgeous, well-maintained path through the woods, and has a sweet little clearing with a large rock to sit on if you want to just relax and enjoy the sound of the little (very little) waterfall.... spoiler... I absolutely did want to do that. :) It was fantastic.
I would definitely recommend this home!
It warms our hearts to hear that our guests loved our cabin the way we do! We think it's a very special
place and we are so very happy they felt so too! Hope they can return soon!
First of all, the owner sent us a contract that was not current.
It sent us out of our way, over 30 minutes, to collect a key from an agency that had not worked with this owner for over a year.
Then we opened a very old dusty sleeper couch and bugs flew out.
One of the shower bathtubs was broken.
The photo of the house on the listing is of the house next door.
This is a log cabin and you could hear footsteps, toilet flushing etc. all over the house.
The kitchen was very nice and very well equipped.
We contacted HomeAway Support and they corrected the "gliche" that caused the outdated contract to be sent. We were unaware that the old contract was automatically being sent out.
We take pride in the cleanliness of our cabin. Our sofa sleepers are used quite often, so it is very surprising that it would be dusty, etc.
Yes this "is a Log Cabin" - therefore, the wood floors are not normal wood floors as you see in conventional homes, they are thick wooden planks and are independent of each other, not tongue & groove. We have never heard these types of complaints in all the years of renting our cabin, I can only assume an "authentic log cabin" is not something you are familiar with or desired.
Equipment in a home can malfunction, i.e., a shower, a faucet, as soon as we are made aware of a problem, it is repaired. This is a $1 Million dollar log cabin, we do not allow it to fall into disrepair.
The pictures of our cabin have been verified by HomeWay - you can even see the plaque at the front steps that reads "SHADOW'S CREEK" - very curious of why you would say they are that of our neighbor. They do not even have a log cabin.
Unfortunately, after I received the highest electric bill in the history of our cabin, I asked my caretaker if she would have any knowledge of why. She advised that upon her arrival after your departure, all the windows were open and the air conditioning was blasting. Not very courteous, thoughtful or environmentally friendly.
