About Gary Burke
We moved to the mountains of North Carolina in 1990 to get out of the hectic city of Dallas, Texas. We had been looking for somewhere to build that was lakefront or creek-front when we discovered this property in Dillsboro that was on beautiful Dick's Creek. We bought it and I built the cabin for us to live in. Eventually I was able to acquire adjacent property and built another home. We liked the original cabin too much to sell so we decided to place it on the vacation rental market so others could enjoy it.
Gary Burke purchased this Cabin in 1992
Why Gary Burke chose Whittier
15 acres of prime mountain property with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park bordering the West ridge property line and Dick's Creek bordering the East property line. The cabin sits in a private location on the corner of the property backing up to the creek.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin is not your average rental cabin. I'm a custom builder and originally built it to live in and did until building another home on the property. It is a great location being centrally located in Dillsboro. You can go one way towards Waynesville and Asheville or the other direction towards Cherokee and Bryson City. The cabin is privately located on 15 acres with no one to disturb you and a wonderful, relaxing back porch to sit on and enjoy the creek. You can make a day out of that. I've lived many places and this is by far the best place so far. You can bet on having four full seasons to enjoy. It's the perfect location. Come and enjoy.

This was a very nice place, peaceful and quiet. The house had everything you needed as advertised and the wifi was excellent (this was a must) and in this area that is unheard of. Looking to be back in April!
Excellent vacation in the NC mountains.
Come here for a nice getaway, especially if you have children who like playing in streams.
Stayed at this cabin with friends to visit my daughter at WCU and attend basketball and football games. The cabin is spacious and has everything you need! It’s a long, bumpy ride up/ down but once off the mountain, it’s close to Dillsboro/ Sylva.
Relaxing Place to Stay
The check in and check out process was extremely easy. The inside of the cabin was very clean. We loved that the owner had apples and chocolate in the basket on the table for us. The king bed on the first floor was so comfortable. The sound of the creek was absolutely amazing, especially while rocking on the huge covered back deck. We really enjoyed our stay!
Thank you! So glad you enjoyed!
Find Peace & Serenity In The Mountains
We enjoyed our stay at the 'Rushing Waters Cabin,' a perfect name for this property. The beautiful little creek that runs along the back of the property line provides for a relaxing nights sleep (leave the bedroom window open a crack). Sitting on the covered back porch and listening to the sound of the creek and wind in the trees was rejuvenating! The secluded cabin had everything we needed to make us feel right at home. It was spotless and neat as a pin! And, its location at the end of a cul-de-sac provided all the privacy we were seeking for our little getaway! We will stay here again the next time we're in the area!
Awesome Mountain Cabin
Couldn’t imagine expecting anymore in terms of what a “Mountain Cabin” should be with all the modern conveniences. Thank you for affording us the seamless great experience.
The cabin is located on 15 private acres that borders “The Great Smoky Mountains National Park” and is only 5 miles away from the popular tourist location Dillsboro, North Carolina. Western Carolina University is 20 minutes south in Cullowhee and continuing south is Cashiers, Highlands with all the famous waterfalls. Asheville is 1 hour to the east or 20 minutes to Waynesville and Maggie Valley. The Cherokee Indian Reservation is north as well as the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and all the outlet malls. To the west is Bryson City, Fontana Lake and the Nantahala Outdoor Center for white water rafting. The cabin is perfectly located with the back porch overlooking Dick’s Creek. Dick’s Creek is a bold mountain creek that cascades down the mountain in a series of waterfalls and pools. It’s perfect for children to play in or move the rocks around building pools and waterfalls.
