"These Mountains Cabins Brim with Classy Touches" by Sarah Pitzer

Don't let the word "cabin" mislead you. Although these three are high in the mountains, overlooking the Tuckasegee River, there's nothing rough or rustic about Tuckaseigee Valley Vacation Cabins. They were built in the late 1990's, and Wanda Herren decorated each one thematically with antiques and collectibles.

Mountain Lodge, for instance, has a hunting/fishing theme, Red Roof Cabin contains antiques from the Herren's grandparents. The Bunk House is done in a cowboy-and - Indian motif, with pictures, saddles and Western Pottery. Horseshoes serve as towel holders, wine rack, book ends and lamps. A note left on the refrigerator by a previous guest says: "There are 108 horseshoes in here."

The grounds include hiking trails, a stocked pond and a fishing pier on the river, offering the possibility of catching catfish, brim, blue gill, crappie and trout.

Views from the cabins offer glimpses of cows. Beyond the pasture you see rising mountains.

This is old family property and well-established black walnut, pear and plum trees still bear fruit.

Although current spelling of the river is"Tuckasegee," the Herrens keep the old family spelling, "Tuckaseigee," in their title.

The cabins are between Cashiers and Sylva, about three hours west of Charlotte.
