|A CENTURY-OLD LOG CABIN RECONSTRUCTED IN THE ALARKA COMMUNITY NEAR BRYSON CITY, NC|
"A cabin at it's finest. The chestnut wood, amazing tub, and outstanding beds and dressers. My life is tedious at times, but this makes up for it. Nothing could have been improved upon!" –
A 120-YEAR-OLD LOG CABIN MADE NEW AGAIN
The Cullisia cabin was originally constructed in the Laurel community near Marshall, North Carolina around 1892. The LL Merchants Company out of Asheville and the Presbyterians hired Jim Leake and Lump Norton to build the cabin for use as a mission and a doctor's office. All the logs were hand-hewn.
To move the cabin, the logs were numbered and taken down one by one. In 2012 we rebuilt the cabin beside a mountain creek on East Cullisia Road in the Alarka community near Bryson City, NC. We used reclaimed materials for the floor, walls and exterior gable ends. All of the logs and much of the inside paneling is native American Chestnut.
Most of the furniture is hand-made from reclaimed materials, using such old time techniques as mortise and tenoning. The heart pine bead board used in the downstairs bedroom was reclaimed from a one-room schoolhouse in Bryson City.
Cullisia Cabin has all the comforts of home. One bedroom has a queen-size bed, one has a double bed; there’s one bath with a shower, and one with a claw foot tub. Both have hair dryers, soaps and plenty of towels. Linens are provided.
The kitchen is equipped with stove, toaster oven, refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave. You’ll find all the utensils you need for cooking and dining.
The cabin also has heat and air-conditioning; ceiling fans; washer and dryer; comfortable furniture; dining table for four; two cable TVs; and a floor to ceiling, stacked stone gas fireplace.
Guests love to gather on the wide front porch with rockers and a swing enjoy the sounds of the creek below.
Maximum occupancy: four. No pets. No smoking. 2-night minimum.
Rates: $150 per night or $1,000 per week plus tax
