ONE-OF-A-KIND HOLLOW: NESTLED IN THE GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS

Bryson City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Campbell Mountain Cabin is a classic, storybook log cabin perched in a green hollow in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. A single-lane dirt road curves through the old woods past breathtaking views, to the cabin. Quiet, pristine, hidden in a forested oasis of seven private acres among 200 acres of undeveloped land, the sweet two-bedroom, two-bath cabin is a romantic and utterly private retreat made for photographers, honeymooners, writers on retreat or anyone needing the revitalization that nature confers. Frasier firs soar all around the little cabin, and a clear stream tumbles down the hillside from pool to pool, running beneath an arched stone footbridge on its way to nearby Fontana Lake. At Campbell Mountain Cabin, life’s pleasures run simple and deep. An artesian well on the property - which doubles as a wishing well - provides water so sweet and cold that you might not wish for anything more. A rocking chair under an apple tree surveys a ravishing view down the mountainside. Inside the cabin, natural pine walls and generous windows frame the deep, vivid green of the forest and the gleam of the pond, while the stream, birds and peepers play a constant symphony. The cabin’s living and dining areas share a high-ceilinged space, anchored by a stone, wood-burning fireplace. Comfortable seating faces the fire, and French doors open to a wide, covered deck that extends out over the stream. The efficient kitchen is very well-equipped, though in warm weather the outdoor grill is often the culinary headquarters of choice, overlooking the rhododendron forest and the silvery brook. The property – a former apple orchard, terraced for planting - has been beautifully landscaped with smooth river rocks; a three-tiered waterfall and a river rock wall are sculptures in stone. The cabin has two airy bedrooms with rustic, log queen beds; one on the lower floor and the other, with a wood burning fireplace, in a loft. The couch in the great room pulls out into a third queen size bed. There is an outhouse on the property for tradition’s sake - complete with a crescent moon carved into the door - but the cabin itself has two fully modern baths, one with a deep jetted tub, the other with a walk-in shower. Out on the deck, the wonderful, roomy hot tub can fit up to six people. And a surround sound dry sauna on the front deck easily accommodates 2 to 3 guests at a time. Air conditioned in summer and snug in winter, Campbell Mountain Cabin is a sanctuary at any time of year; so far out in the woods that it remains blissfully free of cable or satellite (though a well-stocked DVD movie library is provided). Country barbeques around the firepit or the outdoor rock fireplace are a beloved Campbell Mountain Cabin institution, especially with the bluegrass accompaniment of local musicians. Private chefs can provide authentic, delicious Carolina fare for gatherings of up to 12 people, for - though wild turkeys, deer, owls and eagles are the cabin’s most regular visitors – Campbell Mountain Cabin is a truly fabulous place to throw a party. Spring comes early in the Great Smokies, and the woods burst into legendary flower. It is a sublime time of year, the air soft and fragrant, the night thrumming with stars and cricketsong. This is an old and historic area, and there is much to do at the cabin and beyond. Hiking and cross country skiing is available right from the property, and tubing down Deep Creek, kayaking the famed Nantahala Gorge, riding the Great Smoky Mountain Railway, rock climbing, tennis, photography, swimming, hunting, and boating are very close by. There are 26 Swain County fishing locations included in the 4 rivers, dozens of mountain streams and two large lakes. The shops, restaurants, museums and theatres of Bryson City, nearby Sylva, Waynesville and Asheville are just a short drive away, as are Civil War sites, Indian Reservations, Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and even a year-round theme park called “Santa's Land” - highly popular with the younger set.

Keywords: Log Cabin with picturesque river rock accents on a secluded 7-acre private, natural habitat with a babbling brook, private walking & hiking trails, 5,000 Fraiser Fir Christmas trees with 15-year old growth, breathtaking mountain views within walking distance, an artesian wising well on the property, perfect for couples, photographers, honeymooners, families and for family reunions.

As newlyweds, Dale and Robbie Campbell discovered this unique property in September of 2001 and have continued to add new landscape and trees surrounding the Cabin each year. Dale owned a Charleston construction company and Robbie currently has an Atlanta-based strategic marketing consulting firm. Their creative talents and passion for a wonderful and secluded Mountain environment has resulted in a one-of-a-kind vacation spot.

Robbie Campbell purchased this cabin in 2001

We believe that Campbell Mountain is the most beautiful place on earth -- smack in the middle of some of the oldest mountains in the world. Bryson City is located in a natural rain forest and thus is enveloped in a variety of shades of lush green foliage most of the year. Wildflowers, a wide variety of tall trees and the surrounding bird sanctuary are reasons enough to include seasonal visits to Campbell Mountain.

Private walking trails, within walking distance of views of The Great Smoky Mountains National Forest, cascading waterfalls and ponds, a babbling brook and artesian well, seclusion, outdoor hot tub and firepit, a restful spot that is perfect for photographers, honeymooners, family getaways or a concentrated writing or reading retreat. There are no other homes visible from 'Campbell Mountain'. As a licensed boat captain, Dale can easily arrange for fishing expeditions or a white water or Lake adventure for you and your guests.

TRULY A ONE-OF-A-KIND EXPERIENCE! LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose this cabin as home base for a 2 week combination vacation and photography expedition of this side of the beautiful Smoky Mountains! I can't say enough good things about our experience at this beautiful "hidden gem"! From the first phone call to the very last hug before leaving for home from our amazing hosts and new friends Robbie and Dale, the entire experience was top notch! Everything in this cabin is of wonderful quality and craftsmanship! Thank you both for giving me the honor of photographing your special cabin, and for everything you did to make our stay so comfortable! From the moment we walked in the door that first day, we truly felt like we were home! No worries, we will be back!

OUR FAVORITE PLACE TO RETURN TO

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned home from another amazing stay at this fantastic cabin, and the first thing we wanted to do when we hit the house was write a review. Robbie and Dale’s cabin has become our favorite get-away location. The cabin is stunningly beautiful; the location is as peaceful as you’ll find anywhere in the world; and the owners are second-to-none in their hospitality. The only complaint we ever have when staying there is when we have to leave: we don’t want to!
There is so much to do in the Bryson City area. There’s the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you can hike, picnic, explore the nature centers, or even go tubing. In nearby Cherokee, there’s a ton of Cherokee history to explore as well as Harrah’s Casino, which great restaurants and a spa. But you can also enjoy wonderful days just hanging out at the cabin, where you can sit on the porch and listen to the stream bubbling up from the artesian well, sit in the hot tub, built a cozy fire, play board games, read, take a walk in the holler, or any number of other things that help you get grounded again.
We can’t wait to come back. Thank you Robbie and Dale!!!

AWESOME FAMILY GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We met here coming from 3 different directions for a family Thanksgiving! This cabin was perfect! It had every thing we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed the proximity to the National Park for our favorite Smokey pastime of hiking, and spent the evenings eating, relaxing and playing some of the games provided at the cabin. The area is beautiful and we all agree we need to come back at a different time of year to enjoy another season there! We didn't get a chance to meet the owners, but they were extremely helpful on the phone in helping us find their tucked away treasure and giving us ideas of fun areas to hike.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Cozy cottage tucked away from our fast paced life. It was a perfect getaway. Warm inviting timber cabin matches perfectly with the personality of the owners. We had everything we needed provided. I wish we had more time at the cabin.

BEST IN THE SMOKIES!

  • 5 of 5
Robbie & Dale,

We just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! again for your wonderful hospitality, and for allowing us to stay at The Cabin those 5+ days. The Cabin was all (and more!) that we hoped it would be: beautiful, secluded, just a total joy to be in.

We do plan to return one day, perhaps in the summer of 2014, and to take advantage of Dale's "outdoorsmanship", and allow y'all to take us to the undiscovered places in the Smokies. The Smokies themselves were more breathtaking than we had foreseen. Simply beautiful!!!

Honestly, I think the best part of our trip was when we decided to hike the 7 miles up to Clingman's Dome. It was idyllic- no people - quiet - like having the mountain all to ourselves!! FANTASTIC!!!!

Again, thanks for giving us the opportunity to stay at The Cabin. Your friendship and generosity made this one of the best trips we've ever taken!!!

Stay in touch!!!

Thanks,
Chris & Alyce Coincon

FANTASTIC SPOT TO RELAX

  • 5 of 5
My wife and 2 teenage daughters visited between Christmas and New Year's. It was so nice to be in a beautiful, quite and relaxing spot for a few days. The girls stayed in pj's while I went for a good hike each day. The cabin is really nice and the beds were comfortable. We watched a movie one night and went into town for dinner one night. We plan to come back soon and no doubt will stay here.

Hiking on Turtle Springs Road or nearby in The Great Smoky Mountain National Park, with no neighbors in sight feels like you are tucked away at the foot of a mountain in a 200-acre setting, reading or conversing from an outdoor deck, hot tubing in the Rhododendron Forest (just outside the cabin's downstairs bedroom).

Nearby attractions include Deep Creek outdoor hiking, picnic and tubing adventure destination, Cherokee and Harrah's Casino and Santa's Land, Nantahala Gorge - Outdoor Adventure Capital for white water rafting and kayaking and Sylva - a picturesque close-by mountain town with lots of shopping and dining options -- all within a 10 to 15 minute drive, only 55 miles west of Asheville.
