Perched on the side of a mountain and tucked among native hardwoods, rhododendrons and mountain laurel is “Gakatiyi,” a Cherokee word meaning “a place of setting free.” If freedom from the daily grind is what you seek then you couldn’t have planned a better escape. Lots of activities and attractions are waiting and all within a few minutes’ walk or drive. The onsite community lake is perfect for a morning of fishing, the lake is stocked and offers hours of catch and release entertainment. Or delight in a leisurely paddle, a refreshing afternoon dip or an evening BBQ at the lakeside gazebo. You’ll also want to save time for a nature hike through the wooded ravine to the community waterfalls or take pleasure in a scenic float down the New River only minutes away. River access is available to vacationers with plenty of parking and canoe, kayak and tube rentals are available in nearby Todd if you don’t want to bring your own. Meandering approximately 10 miles from Fleetwood to Todd alongside the New River is scenic Railroad Grade Road, a local favorite for bicycle touring. In Todd you can also find the well-known Todd General Store and Cook Memorial Park where you can enjoy folk storytelling, bluegrass on Friday nights and numerous music and art festivals throughout the year. Check out calendar of events section for a full list of area happenings. Year round adventure awaits and “Gakatiyi” is the perfect place to call home as you explore everything the High Country offers.

When you open the doors you’ll be greeted by the window filled living room where you can enjoy majestic views and the fire’s warm glow.

The view from this cabin is amazing and the screened in porch is perfect for eating, socializing or just taking in the serenity. The neighborhood is well maintained and peaceful. The community lake was a great place to fish, canoe, and swim. The only thing that was a little frustrating was that there was a small sugar ant problem in the kitchen. We would love to stay in this cabin again.

beautiful view, great screen porch. The rental needs to be updated - bedroom on main floor needs new covers and shams - house smelled musty. curtains need repairing- fridg freezes food even on warm setting. kitchen was well stocked. Read more
Location, Massive Screen Porch with Outdoor Wood Burning Fireplace and Mountain Views make this rental a great option for those on a budget. Modestly furnished and yes could use a little updating but for price, location and amenities it can't be beat. Please read all reviews.

The view was amazing and settled in a quiet neighborhood. The cabin was well furnished and we enjoyed the outdoor screened in porch with the fireplace. Getting there was a bit of a problem. The Fleetwood Falls community needs a map to make it easier to get around. We were told that there was a "lake" with a charcoal grill. Well, it ended up being a pond with a charcoal grill and picnic table and the grounds were not well kept.

We were very satisfied with the cabin, yes it is a little old, BUT the porch and the view make up for that. It was very comfortable. And we loved staying out on the porch. The mountain breeze comes up the mountain side and blows through the porch, so it was wonderful! Can't go wrong staying here. I will say the downstairs room in the basement was a little damp smelling and needs a dehumidifier going all the time.
