Gakatiyi

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cabin / bungalow. Sleeps 4, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

Fleetwood, NC 28626 United States

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.


Inside your “home away from home” you’ll find three levels of living and plenty of space for all your family and friends. 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 combination kitchen / dining area is a cook’s dream and off this area you’ll find the signature screened porch with comfy outdoor furnishings, picnic table and a massive wood burning outdoor fireplace. On this level you’ll also find a spacious bedroom with queen size bed and separate full bath.


On the upper level you’ll enjoy a loft area with sleeper sofa, full bath and bedroom with double size bed.


The lower level is roomy and open with queen size bed, media room and laundry area.


With natural beauty, unique attractions and year round activities all within a short drive from this comfortable getaway you’ll already be planning your next vacation. 20 miles to Boone, 10 miles to West Jefferson and 10 miles to Todd.

    Jeanne T from Wilmington, NC recommends this vacation rental

    I was pleasantly surprised by this home. The pictures did not do it justice. We rented it primarily for the porch, view, and location and ended up loving the house itself and the porch and view were beyond our expectations. Everything was clean and comfortable. We had 2 teens and 2 young boys in tow and everything wasn't so new that we couldn't relax. It was nice but felt like a home. Highly reccommend! Make sure the brakes on your car work well, it's a long way up and down, and don't expect a large amount of area for kids to play in as it's a small property, but a fork of the New River rests at the bottom of the development and it was perfect for fishing. We plan to return as soon as possible!

    We really love staying in the cabin. This was our 2nd time. Look forward to doing it again. Only problem was septic tank leakage, had to smell sewage all weekend, couldn't use the screened porch very much because of the smell. Looking forward to returning if septic problem is repaired. Problem was reported while we were there but no one came to check it out that I am aware of,

    We had a great stay at the Gatakiyi cabin in Fleetwood Falls. The view was fantastic! I suppose the only drawback was the lack of AC. It was an extremely hot weekend - even in the mountains & we had a couple of hot nights.

    Pros: Great views. Great screened-in deck with fireplace. Functioning kitchen.

    Overall we had a great stay at Gakatiyi over Memorial Day weekend. The screened in porch is perfect and that is where we spent most of our time. There was a bit of an ant problem in the kitchen but other than that the house was clean though a little dated. We will stay again!

    House was as seen in the pictures on the website. HUGE screened in porch, but a little cool at the time to really use. Only problem was barking dogs in the valley ... you could only barely hear in the house, but on the deck it was distracting for reading. Great view.

    The location of the property was great. It was very convenient to get to all the places we needed to get to .. My family and I stay for Christmas weekend and the view from the porch was priceless .. Unfortunately we could do anything that had to do with snow because of the temperatures but that has nothing to do with the property. I do recommend you get there during the day it's very hard to get to the property at night... We had a great stay

    Our weekend stay at the Gakatiyi was perfect. High up the mountain, we enjoyed the beautiful views and the screened in porch! We slept 2 couples, 2 children, and 1 teenager comfortably. We forgot to ask about air conditioning and were a little concerned when we did not have it, but there were nice big fans to use at night. Highlights: Tubing & fishing in the New River, visiting the cheese factory & downtown West Jefferson, swimming in the lake, hiking up the falls & visiting with friends we had not seen in 25 yrs. Thank you for all your help in scheduling the perfect place for us!

    My family and I stay in Fleetwood Falls several times per year, but this was the first time we stayed in Gakatiyi. The mountain views are fantastic, and the house had plenty of room for the five of us. There is a very large outdoor screened-in porch with a fireplace, rocking chairs and a couch. There was even room around the outside of the house for my kids to go out and play. A very nice place to stay, and we had a great time.

    We had the best time on our Easter weekend vacation. We had no problems with the directions or the property.The house was really nice and views were wonderful! We especially enjoyed roasting marshmallows and the fire in the outside fireplace at night! The price for the location was well worth it. It was in a community that made you feel like you were far away from the world but you were close to alot of nice area attractions that we visited like grandfather mountain, blowing rock, Linville caverns, Daniel Boone Inn etc. Planning on another trip to this cabin soon!

    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.

    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.
