Welcome to Tuckaseigee Valley Cabins
We are located between Sylva and Cashiers, NC (4.5 miles from Western Carolina University), and feature three unique cabins, each with its own personality. A cabin is the perfect place to prepare for an entire vacation. There’s plenty of room to get your gear organized and a full kitchen for dining. At the end of your day a cabin is a wonderfully inviting place to rest and enjoy the views from the front porch or make S'mores at the fire pit. Cuddle on the sofa in front of a warm, wood burning fireplace (Red Roof Cabin only). Fish for trout in the Tuckaseigee River or catfish in the pond, hike the mountain trails, pet the miniature horse and donkeys, feed the geese and ducks at the pond, or just relax.

"These Mountains Cabins Brim with Classy Touches" by Sarah Pitzer
Don't let the word "cabin" mislead you. Although these three are high in the mountains, overlooking the Tuckasegee River, there's nothing rough or rustic about Tuckaseigee Valley Vacation Cabins. They were built in the late 1990's, and Wanda Herren decorated each one thematically with antiques and collectibles.
Mountain Lodge, for instance, has a hunting/fishing theme, Red Roof Cabin contains antiques from the Herren's grandparents. The Bunk House is done in a cowboy-and - Indian motif, with pictures, saddles and Western Pottery. Horseshoes serve as towel holders, wine rack, book ends and lamps. A note left on the refrigerator by a previous guest says: "There are 108 horseshoes in here."
The grounds include hiking trails, a stocked pond and a fishing pier on the river, offering the possibility of catching catfish, brim, blue gill, crappie and trout. Views from the cabins offer glimpses of cows. Beyond the pasture you see rising mountains.
This is old family property and well-established black walnut, pear and plum trees still bear fruit. Although current spelling of the river is"Tuckasegee," the Herrens keep the old family spelling, "Tuckaseigee," in their title.
The cabins are between Cashiers and Sylva, about three hours west of Charlotte.
