Property Description

Bedrooms: 3. Bathrooms: 2

If you’re seeking freedom from the daily grind, then you can’t find a better place to which to escape. “Gakatiyi” is a Cherokee word meaning “a place of setting free.” No other name could possibly be more appropriate for this charming mountain home away from home, perched on a mountainside among majestic native hardwood trees, mountain laurel and rhododendron. You’ll find three levels of living space – plenty of room for all your family and friends. The living room offers lots of windows so you can enjoy majestic long-range mountain vistas and the reflections of the warm glow of the evening fire. The combination kitchen and dining area is the perfect place to prepare, serve and enjoy your daily meals. Off to the side you’ll find a signature screened porch, comfortable outdoor furnishings and picnic table, and a massive outdoor wood-burning fireplace. This main level also features a spacious bedroom with a queen-size bed and separate full bath. The upper level offers one bedroom with double-size bed, a loft area with sleeper sofa, and a full bath. The roomy lower level is where you’ll find another queen-size bed, a media room and the laundry area. When you stay at Gakatiyi, you’ll never have nothing to do, unless you want it that way. There’s plenty of activities and attractions located within the community property and within a few minutes’ drive. The onsite lake is stocked and offers hours of catch-and-release fishing to your heart’s content. Take a cool dip in the lake in the afternoon and cook your favorite barbecue meal in the evening at the lakeside grilling station and gazebo. You might want to take a nature hike through the wooded ravine to the community waterfalls, or perhaps instead enjoy a scenic float down the nearby historic New River, one of the oldest and few remaining wild rivers in America. If you don’t want to bring your own, you can easily rent a canoes, kayaks or rafting tubes to suit your needs in the nearby community of Todd. You might want to bicycle along the New River on the scenic (and comfortably flat) Railroad Grade Road to explore Todd itself, well-known for its charming old-time General Store, folk storytelling, open-air bluegrass music on Friday nights and seasonal music and art festivals throughout the year. All sorts of High Country mountain adventures await you at Gakatiyi – freedom is calling!
