Bryson City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Log Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeping loft, Screened Porch (Sleeps 2~4)

Call Us for Special Rate for Two Guests!

A special message from owners, Ty and Sandy Nelson..

We purchased Log Heaven brand new in 2001 and it was love at first sight! Ty and I are originally from Chicago and the thought of owning a log cabin in the Smoky Mountains excited us beyond belief. The beautiful country heart pine wood floors, tongue and groove log interior, green metal roof and the enormous 25' vaulted ceiling with huge exposed beams took our breathe away.

We bought our log heaven for all the folks out there just like us who would love to experience a log home ... and appreciate the privacy ... tucked back in the woods ... with only nature and wildlife for neighbors.....

Adventuresome adults, honeymooners, those celebrating second honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays and all the other special occasions...especially love our privacy and beautifully landscaped setting. A Log Heaven is perfect for a couples getaway...romantic and secluded! It's also perfect for a girlfriends getaway...so many things to do...and that's without leaving the cabin!

Located only a few minutes from Bryson City, we offer a great location...(we think the best location of all)... right in the midst of everything ... an easily accessible road (that means you don't have to drive a 4-wheel drive vehicle), a driveway we've just paved, wonderful views that you will fall in love with, and nature and seclusion at its best... Recent guests were thrilled to discover deer in our back yard!!

With a large great room that has a 25' vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, an open floor plan, two bedrooms plus a large sleeping loft with French doors to a Juliet balcony overlooking beautiful sunset views, two bathrooms, a large screened porch and a front covered porch with rockers and swing... (both porches are on the second floor where you will enjoy the wonderful mountain breezes) and because we love games, we have a mini-game room with foosball and electronic darts ...we also have a large hot tub for adults use on our landscaped patio and a wood burning portable fire pit in the back yard.

We are just a few minutes away from Bryson City... known as the 'Outdoor Adventure' capital of the Great Smoky Mountains. Bryson City is a 'real' town...it isn't overrun with tourists, and it has it's own special quaintness and charm. With the terrain, outfitters and guides, Bryson City qualifies as the center of outdoor adventure in the Southeast. For four decades, the Nantahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City has provided rafting, paddling instruction, and supplies to adventurers of all ages.

We are centrally located for all of the Smoky Mountain activities! Bryson City offers unparalleled views, along with miles of hiking and biking trails (hike the Appalachian Trail...it is only 10 minutes from Log Heaven), mountain golf at the Smoky Mountain Country Club and the scenic Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. Nearby Fontana Lake is a beautiful mountain lake where you can swim, fish, and rent a pontoon boat for either half or the entire day.

Also nearby is the Nantahala Outdoor Center for white-water rafting and kayaking, horseback riding, and the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. Some of the most strenuous and scenic mountain biking trails in the east are found in the Tsali Recreation Area near Bryson City, Cherokee (where you can try your luck at Harrah's Casino or go to the wonderful new movie theatre), Gem Mining, and Deep Creek for tubing, hiking, horseback riding and picnics. Western North Carolina is absolutely great for flea-markets and antiquing ...and... maybe best of all, Ingles Supermarket is only minutes away.

Just throw the pressures and stress of your everyday life away, come to the mountains and enjoy unwinding and relaxing ....

About Tyler and Sandy Nelson

We welcome you to our website, Log Heaven in Bryson City, North Carolina. I'm Sandy and my husband is Ty. We would love to have you as guests at our vacation home! Even though we are originally from Chicago, we now live in Columbia, SC. I guess you could say we also live in Bryson City, NC because we spend so much of our time there. We love to hike and the Appalachian Trail and Deep Creek are some of our favorite places. We also love nature and enjoy all the deer, owl, turkey and rabbit sightings on our property. Mostly, we just like to hang out...do some gardening, reading, enjoy our family, play games, and relax in the hot tub.

Tyler and Sandy Nelson purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Tyler and Sandy Nelson chose Bryson City

In 2001, it seemed like a great idea to invest in vacation real estate. We had built Retreat in the Sky, our vacation home, three years previously and we had begun renting it to vacation guests with much success. We searched and searched to find another vacation home that guests would love and take good care of like it was their own... and that would be a good investment for us. When we found Log Heaven, it was exactly what we were looking for.

What makes this cabin unique

Log Heaven has so many outdoor spaces sometimes we just don't know where we want to 'be'. Our choices include; a covered front porch, a large screened porch, or...our patio with hot tub. Our location is close to Ingles and the town of Bryson City. We still pinch ourselves that we found the perfect vacation home for us and for our guests!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely loved the cabin! For us, the fav places were the porches! It was kewl looking at all the home decor - Sandy, what a great way to decorate! Randy is a Wizard of Oz fanatic so when he saw the posters he knew he was "home". Log Heaven will become our regular retreat and we look forward to returning again and again. The info notebook was great. It was so nice to see personal photos of your family which made the cabin feel more cozy. Thanks for a wonderful time and for a gorgeous cabin!

A Must Visit (Again and Again)

  • 5 of 5
North Carolina has long been a favorite vacation destination of ours. Last year was our first venture into the Bryson City area and the first of what we hope to be many future stays at Log Heaven.

It was our first time renting a vacation home, as we stayed in friend's homes in previous years. At first glance on the internet, there were so many places to choose from; but when we happened upon the Log Heaven listing, we immediately knew we found our vacation home.

Everything we were looking for - privacy; being in the middle of the beautiful NC mountains; close proximity to so many things to do and see; a spacious, beautiful log cabin home with all the amenities - was advertised. It was easy to get excited about what lay ahead.

Well, we sure weren't disappointed either. As soon as we first pulled up to Log Heaven, we could tell the listing didn't do full justice to this place. It is amazing and well worth a visit. You will fall in love with the house and if you manage to tear yourself away to go out nature walking or visiting the local sites, you always will look forward to coming 'home' to Log Heaven.

In addition to the lovely home, there are several great restaurants and shops of all varieties in the area. Our interests lean toward nature walks, waterfall hunting, and photography. This is an excellent location for all of that with many great spots only short drives away.

Do your homework before you come. Your hosts will provide brochures and maps of the local area, but you will want to scout around the surrounding areas as well. They also provide all you need to know about the house so you will be well acquainted when you get there.

Enjoy your stay! We sure did!

Log Heaven....True to it's Name

Log Heaven....True to it's Name
  • 5 of 5
We found this cabin to accommodate our trip to ride the Polar Express. Our girls loved the cabin as much as they loved the Polar Express train ride. They spent a great deal of their time at the cabin in the loft. It is the perfect place for children. They loved having their own little house up there. They played school and house all weekend. The cabin is quite charming and the owners have done a great job making guests feel right at home. We took their recommendations for lunch at River's End. The Greek pizza was probably the best I've ever had. The girls enjoyed their pizzas off the kids menu too. We had dinner at Guayabitos, which was another recommendation of the owners. The food was excellent and the salsa probably ranks up there with some of my favorite. We did breakfast Sunday morning at a cafe in Bryson City, next to the train station. I can't remember the name of it now, but it was fantastic too. Log Heaven is a great place to take your family!!

Owner's Response: Donna, we cannot thank you enough for being the great guests that you were! Our housekeepers said that you took wonderful care of Log Heaven so not only us, but them as well, hope you will return soon! And...we offer a reduced rate to our returning guests.

The Polar Express train ride is very popular with families at Christmas time and we are so happy that your girls enjoyed it. (and the loft!) We are also glad that you enjoyed several of the restaurants in Bryson City. For a small town, we are blessed with many fine restaurants. Thank you again Donna!!

Perfect Place For a Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Home away from home… Next to the word "cozy" should be a picture of Log Heaven! It truly is a cozy place to stay with the family. Decorations are soooo beautiful, it does NOT feel like one of those old cabin places, it felt like home away from home to us. Only thing, which can be positive, is that the tv in the living room is tiny for a good movie with the fam. Other that that, we truly enjoyed this place, will come back in the summer!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, Juan! Thank you too for gently letting us know we need a larger screen television in the great room. I keep telling Ty that we need a larger screen than 32 inches and he keeps telling me that our guests don't come to the mountains to watch TV. I'll work on him over the winter and hopefully, we'll have a larger screen TV when we open for rentals again in the spring!

Private romantic get away!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have been coming to the Smokies each year at our anniversary time for around ten years now. Four of those have been spent near Bryson City, because we prefer the less busy area, compared to the Tennessee side. This is our first time to stay at Log Heaven and as usual we weren't disappointed at all. We've rented Ty and Sandy's other cabin, so it wasn't surprising we could like this one also! The clean and well furnished cabin was privately nestled in amongst beautiful trees/pines with an easily accessible driveway and pretty backyard! We probably enjoyed the back porch off of the kitchen the most, as we lit Sandy's fun lights, had our own candles burning and ate dinner there each evening as dark closed in....it was just perfect! The location was superb, as because of the government shut down while we were there, we couldn't do our usual hiking in the National Park, but were wonderfully located near Nantahala National Forest, which was open! For any other avid day hikers, I'd recommend the Nantahala National Forest map with hiking trails, googling hikes in that area as well as talking to people in the area, specifically clerks at the NOC store! We just LOVE the Bryson City area, usually hiking away our days, stopping in the town for coffee (mochas!), or wine or beer from Cork and Bean, or just for a walk through a quaint friendly town with local friendly shops/shop owners selling local goods. Log Heaven is not only a wonderful private cabin to rent, but it's located supremely for most anything you'd want to do in the beautiful mountainous part of NC!! We will be back!!! PS Sandy goes above and beyond as a personal cabin owner, always checking to be sure you got there and all is okay......she even had a surprise anniversary cake sitting there for us to celebrate our 32 years!! Thank you Sandy and Ty for sharing one of your heavenly spots in the mountains!!!

The best mountain vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 had the best time visiting Log Heaven. We had unseasonably warm weather for April and visited all the "must see" attractions Sandy and Ty listed in their information book about the house and Byrson City. This information was amazing. We didn't look up all the sites before we got there, and this book in the cabin told us everything we needed to know. You just don't get this when booking with a vacation rental company. I have 7 and 9 year old boys and they loved the back yard, throwing their football each evening and playing fusball. We enjoyed Apples To Apples and other board games. The cabin is fully stocked! We didn't have a chance to play all the outdoor and indoor games there. We tried most of the recommended restaurants and all were great. We will vist again! Thanks Sandy and Ty!

Owner's Response: Thank you...Shelly....it was wonderful to have your family experience a mountain vacation and sounds like the boys had a great time! You were wonderful guests and we certainly hope you will be back to work on that list of "things to do" in the Log Heaven book. We are so glad you found the book helpful!! Thanks a million times over!!!

Tranquility

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I along with our 7 month pregnant daughter found Log Heaven to be just what the doctor ordered. The peace and the solitude of the woods surrounding us was relaxing and we enjoyed coming back to Log Heaven at the end of every adventurous day. Our favorite place was the screened in porch where we could sit back, relax and not worry about the weather or bugs !!

Notes:
What makes Log Heaven such a special vacation home? Well, it is very, very private. You will drive through a beautiful woods (where you will not see another home) to reach it. Yet, it is very easy to find, you don't need a 4-wheel drive vehicle and it is only a few minutes from Ingles (Supermarket) and Bryson City. You will love the porches, one is covered and the other is screened-in or maybe you want to 'hang out' on the patio... the kids (or the young at heart kids) love playing foosball and darts in the mini-game room. Roast marshmallows and tell ghost stores at the portable fire pit in the backyard. You can even sing 'camp' songs because there is so much privacy. Log Heaven is truly a wonderful escape from the everyday hassles...you can relax, relax, relax! And love it....like we do!
