Milkyway Cabin

Located in the same cove as Moonshine, the private setting of Milkyway Cabin creates a perfect space for couples or families looking for a getaway that offers luxury and privacy.

The floor plan is similar to Moonshine only on a smaller scale, providing the same luxuries in a cozy setting, with private porches off each bedroom that overlook beautifully landscaped gardens with spectacular views. 

The great room has a large picture window that looks south to the Smoky Mountain National Park, a wood burning fireplace and comfortable furnishings including a leather recliner. All rooms have flat screen TV’s with satellite. 

Cooking in the well stocked kitchen, with granite counters, gas range and stainless steel appliances allows you to be part of the beautiful ambiance of the great room. 


The loft, that overlooks the great room, has a seating area that converts into 2 beds, a writing table and a DVD player. 

There are 3 bedrooms not including the loft: the master bedroom with private bathroom and 2 bedrooms downstairs with queen beds and a shared bathroom with two sinks and a shower/bath combination. The loft has a full bathroom with walk-in shower located on the main level.

“Pictures can’t truly do this beautiful place enough justice. 5 being the highest I could rate this place, I’d still give a 10. Exceptionally clean, luxury to the finest detail: handmade soaps, stainless appliances, luxury bedding, impeccable taste. Milky Way cabin makes you feel like you are on top of the world.”

“We have been renting property every year in North Carolina for over 40 years. This is by far one of the best places we have stayed. Milky Way cabin is such a comfortable home with great beds and full amenities. If you had to work, the internet and phone service were very good. This is not commom in this part of the mountains. The views from the screen porch are wonderful- you could sit out there all day.”  Penny, Jacksonville Fl. 


“For the second October in as many years, my wife and I, together with two other couples, have enjoyed the stunning vistas and the first class accommodations provided by the Milky Way cabin. Whether enjoying an early morning coffee on the screen porch or the late night glass of wine around the outdoor fire pit, the experience is indeed unique. The natural beauty of the Southern Appalachian highlands is on full display both inside and outside Milky Way. The beauty of both the surrounding natural environment and the cabin itself are well illustrated by the photos on this site. The hiker is rewarded by vistas that a camera can never accurately replicate. We will be returning for a third trip this October.”
