About Helen Avant

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

Why Helen Avant chose Bryson City

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely home with the gorgeous view to look at everyday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hot tub was very relaxing in the evenings. Thank you so much for letting us share your home.

Relaxing Stay

  • 4 of 5

Three best friends from high school stayed, relaxed, cooked, fellowshipped, hiked and of course shopped! we had a very nice time at the home and in Bryson City. The home was the perfect size for us with room to spare. The views are awesome and it is close to town. Make sure you get there before dark because it is VERY dark. We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you Helen.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for choosing "Our Point of View"! We are very glad your stay was relaxing and convenient. Thanks for the feedback on the "darkness". The porch lights are supposed to be on for our arriving guests.... I will remind the staff to double check when preparing for our guests. Our views are one of the best on the ridge, very peaceful! We will look forward to your next visit. Thanks a million, Helen

Will definitely plan to return!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend of hiking/skiing/exploring Bryson City with our family. The cabin is in a great location with a beautiful view of Clingman's Dome and the Smokies. The hot tub and the cozy living room are nice to return to after a long day on the trails. Helen was a pleasure to work with. Our kids are already asking when we can return!

GREAT Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience, Helen was a pleasure to work with and cabin was exactly as listed. Our only recommendation is to consider adding a handrail along front steps and remove pea gravel (unstable footing) The cabins central location to Gatlinburg, Asheville, Maggie Valley, and Cherokee is perfect, we would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a GREAT experience in the Smokies

We love this cabin...and the view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in the Bryson City area 7 of the last 9 years. This was our second year in a row to stay at "Our Point of View" and we are already planning to go back next year. It had everything we needed, was very clean when we arrived and you just can beat the view.

It is in a great location for making numerous day trips by motorcycle. Whether you have specific destinations in mind or just want to experience riding the many great roads in the area, this is a good place to base your next motorcycle trip. Oh yeah, make sure you check out some of the "mom and pop" restaurants in the area. Just don't try to do it on a diet!!

Since we are from Florida, we trailer our motorcycles up, mostly to save on travel time. Fair warning, the last half mile is fairly steep. But even with two 750lb bikes on the trailer behind our F150, it's not as bad as it looks. Experienced riders shouldn't have any problem with the hills.

Helen has been a joy to deal with the last two years. She is very helpful with information and can offer a recommendation and insight for most anything you may think of. Bryson City is a great place to visit too. Oh yeah, did I mention the view...?

Smokey Mountian Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is heaven on earth. The view from the back porch is amazing. Loved sitting out there and drinking coffee every morning. We took a much needed family vacation to ride the Smokey Mountain Railway. We fell in love and didn't want to come home. This cabin has all the amenities of home and Helen is so helpful. If we get the good fortune of going to Bryson City again we will stay here.
