Bryson City Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Family friendly 3 bedroom, 1 bath Amazing Mountain Views
The view from our cabin on Fontana Ridge is spectacular -- one of the best on the mountain. We look down on the Tuckasegee River and out to the Smoky Mountains. We call the cabin 'No Worries' because that's how we feel when we're there. Our spacious 3+ bedroom house is over three levels, from the master bedroom on the top floor to two game rooms on the lowest floor. Although the house is tastefully decorated with real furniture, not rental pieces, we set it up with comfort and family fun in mind. All beds are real beds with comfortable mattresses, the game rooms have an assortment of games, even a pool table, and the living areas are open and inviting.
The main deck offers gorgeous sunrises with views of the Great Smoky Mountains and the Tuckaseegee River. The wraparound deck has a picnic table for outdoor dining, a gas grill and a porch swing. That's where we spend most of our time in the summer. The covered space means you can enjoy the view even in the rain while the uncovered side opens to the sun and moon. We take most of our meals on the picnic table on the deck but there is a large dining table just inside the French doors.
The dining area adjoins the kitchen and the living room (great room). In keeping with our goal of comfort, the plush seating in the great room includes four recliners. There is a flat screen TV with DiretTV and a wood burning fireplace. The floor plan is open, with a partial wall separating the kitchen from the rest of the space. The kitchen is open and airy with all the modern conveniences including a large stand up refrigerator/freezer, full stove, microwave, coffee maker and toaster oven.
There are two bedrooms on this floor, one with a queen sized bed and the other a double.
The master bedroom is nestled under the peak of the A-frame on the top floor. Windows and doors open to the outside deck and the loft space next to the room, which, along with the ceiling fans, allows good circulation. The spacious room easily accommodates the king sized bed and furniture without feeling cramped. Step outside onto the private deck to watch the sunset or come in and read in the loft sitting area outside the bedroom. The sofa in the loft pulls out into a bed for your extra guests.
Two recreation rooms are set up on the bottom level,, with a pool table, a flat screen TV with cable and a cabinet filled with games for both adult and children. This is a perfect place to shoot pool while watching your favorite sporting event. The other room is aimed at children, with a TV set up with a DVD player, a set of day beds, a bean bag chair, and even a game table. We provide some DVDs but feel free to bring your own or bring along a gaming system for the kids.
Outside, there is a large flat play area for children, and plenty of flat parking for your vehicles. Cabin access is easy, as all roads are paved.

About Cyndi Goddard
I am originally from Florida and now live in a small town in Northern California, where I raised my two sons. Both boys are in college now so we don't get to travel together as much as we used to. Since we live across the country we realized we can open our cabin to other families with the help of our friends on the mountain.
We enjoy hiking. snorkeling, scuba diving and exploring together, and travel as much as work and school and our budgets permit. Live music shows are a passion, as well. My kids and I are avid readers and leave a trail of paper back books everywhere we go.
Cyndi Goddard purchased this cabin in 2007
Why Cyndi Goddard chose Bryson City
Growing up in Florida, we vacationed in North Carolina and this cabin is the chance for me to provide my family with some of the experiences I remember so fondly from childhood. As a writer, I found its location ideal for getting away and concentrating on my next project.
What makes this cabin unique
The view overwhelmed me. Getting up to take coffee on the deck, seeing the sunrise over the river and the mists over the Smoky Mountains is the bet way I can think of to start a day.
