The Great Smokies are some of the oldest mountains in the world and the majority of them are in western North Carolina. It's no surprise that Panther Creek vacation cabin rental property visitors are spending so much time in the great outdoors. Our log cabins are the perfect location to venture out on adventures such as whitewater rafting or tubing down the Oconaluftee River. For those who don't enjoy rafting, a cool hike to our area waterfalls, a horseback ride along our mountain trails, a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway or a battle between man and fish with our famous trout fishing. 

Or just relax on your Creekside porch and listen to the peaceful sounds of Wrights Creek. Mother Nature has blessed us with some of the most scenic and serene landscapes for you to just kick back and relax. The only noise you'll hear...is the creek!

From fishing to hiking and all the rafting in between, Cherokee in western NC is the place for sharing a family vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains. At Panther Creek Cabins, we strive to ensure your log cabin rental is all you hope for in your Smoky Mountain vacation.

Minutes from Harrah's Cherokee Casino, downtown Cherokee, fishing, rafting, tubing, hiking, skiing, shopping, canoeing and kayaking, and fine dining, yet far enough from the activities to enjoy a private, secluded vacation and feel like you're a million miles away!
