THE HUNGRY TROUT CABIN IS NOW CLOSED
We have retired into this peaceful setting to enjoy the Mountain views, watch the wildlife, and hear the gentle water running over the rocks of Cattail Creek.
Thank you to the many families and friends who have enjoyed our cabin over the last few years.
We have decided to leave the website up to give people information on the area.
Other vacation rental cabins are available through contacting the Yancey Chamber of Commerce in, the historic town of Burnsville. www.yanceychamber.com or Carolina Mountain Realty who have a good selection of cabins like ours for rent or sale. Don't forget to mention the The Hungry Trout Cabin.

The Pisgah National Park and Blue Ridge Parkway are on your doorstep. Downtown Burnsville with restaurants, supermarkets, antique shops, hardware and department store is only a few minutes away on the 197 and 19E. Asheville with large indoor malls, Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club and Regional Airport is approximately 35 miles south of the cabin. Biltmore Estate on the outskirts of Asheville is a day trip to remember.
