When Wendell & I began bringing our grandchildren to Bryson City to ride the Great Smoky Mtn Railway some years ago, We always had dreams of having a cabin in this area. When we visited in 2011 we found our lot by chance and was not really 'looking'. We had not planned on building for a few more years. Those plans quickly changed when we realized this was 'Our Point of View'...We loved the community and quickly got to know a few of the residents as we went though the process of making our decision. We loved the location, the space of the lots which provides privacy, and a wonderful view. There was something that just 'felt right' about it.. After everything came together so easily, We decided to move forward and you know the rest of the story! Construction on our cabin began in November 2011 and was completed in April 2012. We love our cabin and hope our guests will quickly come to love it as we do. We are very family oriented and invite you and your family to feel 'at home' when you vacation with us. We hope that we have met the expectation of all our guests and hope to build long lasting relationships for years to come. Best Regards, Wendell & Helen Avant

Helen Avant purchased this cabin in 2011

We love the location of our cabin. Everything from a short drive to Bryson City to the central location of ALL activities, the beautiful views, to the paved roads which make access to our cabin very easy. We love the quiet and close knit community of Fontana Ridge.

We knew what we wanted in our cabin and was able to design our floor plan. We love the view from the location of our cabin and love the ability to enjoy our cabin inside and out with the additional outdoor living area. The open floor plan and additional outdoor space creates room for all to spread out and relax. The outdoor area is very relaxing from a dip in the Hot Tub to a lazy afternoon in the 2 person hammock. We hope you will enjoy your vacation in our cabin!

Helen- our bachelor party was a superb experience, made possible by both the beautiful vistas off the back porch (seeing the clouds "beneath us" was truly breathtaking), and the well supplied amenities of the home. An outstanding dinner in Bryson City along with a great cookout on your property coupled with a great whitewater rafting experience and the hot tub to make this an experience we will not forget. Thanks for your personal communications throughout our events preparations and during our stay. Simply, we made a great decision to stay at your home.

Sincerely,
'
Wayne

WONDERFUL TIME!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at 'Our Point of View' for spring break. It was colder than we expected (we even had SNOW!) but enjoyed the fireplace and even the hot tub despite the cold. The view was incredible and we saw wild turkey cross in front of the house one morning. The house had everything that we needed and gave everyone room to enjoy. The kids did some hiking at the Bryson City entrance to Smokies and did a little shopping in town. I was a fun getaway!! Thanks for all sharing your house Helen!!

OUR POINT OF VIEW WAS GREAT

  • 4 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time, the view is awesome and the house is perfect. The view over the mountains is truly beautiful and we enjoyed a long weekend in the snow with no problems. Having the fire going and the view in the background made for a great weekend.

Owner's Response: We're glad your first "Mountain Getaway" was a great time. The snow is so beautiful on the mountains in the winter months and the fire just makes everything even better. Thanks for the kind words about the cabin. We hope you enjoyed all the cabin has to offer and will come again! Outdoor activities are great in the summer months. Thanks for choosing "Our Point of View", Wendell & Helen Avant

GREAT CABIN - PERFECT FOR CHRISTMAS!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was very nice, clean and comfortable. We were there the weekend before Christmas and it was decorated for the holidays. We shared the cabin with another family and between the two of us, we had 3 kids under the age of 6. The only complication we had with the small children was the loft area and the kids wanting to run up & down the spiral stairs which made us a little nervous. Otherwise, the cabin was great and the stairs will be a non-issue when our kids are older. Also, just FYI - the coffee maker isa keurig so be sure to bring lots of k-cups if you want coffee!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your Christmas Trip at "Our Point of View". We really do understand the issue with the stairs so we just normally block the stairs with the sofa....We have now included a Mr Coffee maker in addition to the keurig so guests can enjoy coffee by the cup or the pot. Thanks so much for your comments. We always appreciate any comments as it helps us to provide every need possible for our guests! Thanks!
