Bryson City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, loft, 3 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 8

The “Brown Bear Lodge” is a 3300 sq ft luxury log home tucked away on 5 ½ acres of wooded mountainside just outside Bryson City. This 3 bedroom 3.5 bath home on 3 levels overlooks the Smokey Mountain National Park and has stunning long range mountain views from every room. Main floor living includes great room, chef's gourmet kitchen and master suite. Loft level includes 2nd master bedroom plus media room. Game room with billiards ,living area, 3rd bedroom and bath located on lower level.

We have gone out of our way to make this home as comfortable and relaxing as possible with the laid back feel of a mountain retreat. You'll find this home warm and inviting. Some of the features include reclining sofas and chairs, plush pillow top beds, a handcrafted dining room table with seating for 10, as well as custom cabinetry and granite counter tops in the kitchen and baths. The focal point of the home is the massive floor to ceiling stone gas fireplace in the great room.

Fun things to do: Want more excitement? Try Harrah’s Casino located in nearby Cherokee. Need a relaxing drive? The scenic Blue Ridge Parkway starts in Cherokee. Want golf? Check out the Smoky Mountain Country Club in Whittier! Zip line through the Nantahala forest. Visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville.

Relax a bit: However, if you want to truly relax, you don’t need to leave home. How about sitting in the hot tub and enjoying the mountain views during the day or stargazing at night with your favorite beverage. Or, how about cooking a steak on the grill while watching the sun set over the mountains. After dinner, nothing beats sitting around the fire pit telling stories and roasting marshmallows.

Our 'Brown Bear Lodge' has an instant charm and comfort that envelops you in luxury.

NEWS FLASH!: As of November 2011 the final stretch of road to 'The Brown Bear Lodge' has been paved. You can now

Our family loved this house. It had great energy. My husband and I never left the house. I could live here forever. The view was amazing during the day and the hot tub perfect at night. We loved the stocked kitchen and the TV area's. My family is begging to go again next year.

Winter Getaway

  • Submitted: Feb 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
I wanted to take a peaceful vacation to get away from the hectic city life. So I went online and started researching a winter gateway location. I wanted mountains, rivers and a place where it was quiet and away from it all. Brown Bear Lodge meet and exceeded all our expectations.

We were literally in the mountains. You wakeup overlooking the spectacular mountain landscape outside your balcony and hear the sounds of songs birds. Absolute tranquility and quiet. The cabin is luxurious, yet feels cozy and warm. It’s fully stocked with everything and anything you will need for a family or a romantic getaway. I love the Jacuzzi overlooking the smoky mountains, truly a perfect setting.

The downstairs area has a great play room, complete with a pool table, tons of board games and tv area. The kids bedroom/bathroom is conveniently located downstairs by the playroom, perfect for a big family. We loved the loft area... after a long day of hiking we loved curling up on the comfortable couch and watch a movie.

Our last 2 days in NC we cut our daytime activities short so we could enjoy and relax in the cabin a little longer. If you like birds, this is a great place for bird watching... I saw over 12 types of songs birds, finches, and wood packers.

The owner was super helpful and nice, even emailed me things to do and places to eat. All in all the place was wonderful we really enjoyed our time there. I plan on coming back during the summer.

PERFECT Retreat!!

I am not someone who typically writes reviews of products or purchases but our stay at Brown Bear Lodge has compelled me to share our experience.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this fabulous location! Although the cabin was a bit more than we typically spend for a vacation, I do not regret our decision. It was worth every penny and more! For over 10 years, I have been dreaming about a vacation in the mountains and, without knowing, this cabin was EXACTLY what I'd pictured in my dreams. It couldn't have been any more perfect!

After researching vacation rentals, we chose this cabin. The photos we saw excited us about our trip and gave us a preview of what to expect. (I'm a planner and have to do lots of research before making a decision.)

It's been said that a picture is worth a thousand words . . . Even though the photos were beautiful, they can't describe how PERFECT this vacation home and the surrounded landscape was. Everything we could possibly need was provided for and it was a perfect retreat from the daily stresses of life. In fact, our visit was so wonderful, we decided to extend our stay another night.

We will most certainly be back and wholeheartedly recommend this location to those seeking a relaxing retreat.

We won't have many more opportunities to get away with just
the four of us as Anna is in College and Jane is a freshman in
High School. We had a wonderful time watching the girls discover
all the differences between the Smokey's and lower Michigan.
The cabin is breath-taking, along with the view! To wake up with
a view like this.....Priceless!
Thank you
