Directions for Sleepn Cabin
Whittier, North Carolina
Traveling east or west on I-40 in North Carolina, take exit #27 (Hwy 19,23,&74). This is the Waynesville, Clyde, Sylva, Bryson City, & Cherokee exit). This is also the Smokey Mountain Expressway.
After just a little while, hwy 19 will veer off to the right. Continue on hwy #23 and #74 toward Bryson City. Past the Dillsboro exit, get in the left lane at mile marker #79. Halfway between mile marker #79 and #78 you will turn left onto Barkers Creek Rd. On your right will be two gas stations and a convenience store. Sorry, don't remember the names.
You will immediately cross the Tuskasegee River and some railroad tracks. Go to the top of the hill and turn right onto Thomas Valley Rd.
Follow Thomas Valley Rd for approximately 1 mile. Turn left onto Nations Creek Rd. the sign will be on your right though. There will also be a Bed & Breakfast sign for The Chalet Inn.
Follow Nations Creek Rd for approximately one mile. On your right you will see Sweetwater Rd. Just past this road on your left will be our road. It has no street sign. There, however, is a sign that says Davis's Body Shop (he should have said Davis's junk yard). You will be turning behind a grey mobile home on your left. When you turn you will see an old root cellar on your right. Just past this, the road forks again, take the right fork. Careful, very narrow road. Follow this road for approximately two hundred yards. Our cabin is the first one on the left. Park in rear. When leaving the cabin, it would be best to pull up near the corner of the deck and you should have enough room to turn around in the yard, unless you are driving a semi. Do not attempt to back out of the yard and up the hill. You might back into the small brook. This would not be a pretty site.
