Overview

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.

Convenient with an Awe-inspiring View!

  • 5 of 5
My family decided to ride the Polar Express in Bryson City this year, and found this very convenient cabin nearby. However, it was tucked away high up in the mountains so that you have the most beautiful view of the mountains and the Tuckaseegee River. You can actually hear the river rolling beneath you from the deck! The cabin itself offered everything we needed from a wood burning fireplace, an adult and a kid game room, and three private bedroom areas. The great room living and dining area and open kitchen allowed us to be able to have fun as a group, while the three levels let us get away to our own private spaces when we needed. It was spotlessly cleaned and maintained. Also, the quaint "forest themed" decorations added to the charm. We loved it so much, we are talking about possibly coming back again when the weather is warm to enjoy the awesome wrap-around deck more!

I cannot say enough about this house. It was possibly the best vacation rental choice we've ever made. I booked it for the views, but we ended up loving the actual house even more. We even asked Cyndi if we could add a night and changed our trip to be able relax in the cabin longer. And honestly it felt more like someone's main home more than a cabin. Down to the smallest touches it just felt like a place someone made nice for themselves, not as much to impress vacationers. We really liked that aspect. I remember reading reviews saying it was spotless, and it really was. I already want to go back, despite it being a 12 hour drive from Pennsylvania.

I'll also point out that we stayed here to be in proximity to Great Smoky Mountain National Park for the first time, and I chose this area south of the park kind of as a lucky guess that things might be less touristy and congested than Gatlinburg. I had no idea what I'd like, but after driving through the towns bordering the park, I am so glad Bryson City was our hub rather than those commercialized tourist traps. Driving through Cherokee and seeing all of that hokey stuff made me really appreciate how lucky my choice was to stay out of all of that. So if you like a small, charming, laid back town that hasn't been taken over by things catering to tourists, Bryson City is a great choice, and you can't beat this house if you don't mind being 10 minutes from town in exchange for breathtaking views, complete privacy, and a scenic short drive.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Tommy. It was a pleasure talking to you and I'm so happy you and your family had a good vacation. I agree completely about the merits of Bryson City compared to some of the other towns.

Almost didn't get a summer vacation, glad we did!

Almost didn't get a summer vacation, glad we did!

I teach elementary school students, and was asked to teach four theater classes a day to the summer camp, only catch, they couldn't pay me, "But the kids really need it." Giving up my vacation, I said yes, but then at the end, realized my 10-year-old was in need of a getaway. He knew that once school starts, and my after school teaching artist outreach starts, it means NO vacation. So, we decided to spend the last two days doing something different. We were so blessed that there was something like this cabin available at the last minute. It was beautiful, had all WE needed, and a had a great view. We went to scout out camping spots for our next trip and check out the rafting. What an amazing area! It may have blown our budget for the next year, but it was well worth it. The summer camp kids got free drama classes, my son got a vacation, and my husband and I got a lovely stay in the mountains. Great way to end the summer.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. The bed was SUPER comfortable. The view was amazing and we loved eating meals on the picnic table on the deck. Plenty of wonderful hiking trails close by in the National Park. We enjoyed hiking, swimming in Fontana Lake, and inner tubing on Deep Creek. Definitely could have stayed longer and hope to be back. Our kids loved playing pool -- very nice table.

This is a great place to spend a restful vacation. Very clean, quiet, and peaceful! We had a great time. It is close to everything around Bryson City and the Nantahala is close by as well. We will be going back again to enjoy this cabin.

Located 15 minutes from downtown Bryson City, NC, home of the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad.

Bryson City is a small, quintessential Western NC mountain town with numerous local shops and restaurants. Because it is a jumping off point for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, many diverse visitors stop in Bryson and local businesses cater to a wide range of tastes and needs. Shops range from thrift and antique stores to fashionable boutiques, outdoor outfitters and train souvenirs. Local art, crafts, food and wine are all available in Bryson's downtown. Groceries and other supplies can be picked up at your choice of grocery, pharmacy and hardware stores. There are cafes offering espresso, chai tea and homemade bagels and breakfast. Lunch and dinner offerings include traditional Southern cooking as well as fresh seafood, Italian, Mexican...

The Nantahala Outdoor Recreation and Deep Creek camp grounds in Bryson offer tubing, paddling, rafting, even river surf lessons.

More activities, shopping and restaurants are only 30 minutes away in Cherokee, NC, home of Harrah's Casino. Hip and artsy Asheville is less than an hour away. Gatlinburg anyone? Again, just an hour away. Pigeon Forge is only 1 hour 15 minutes.

Whatever you decide to do, make room in your schedule for watching sunrise from the deck. Do it once and you'll be hooked. There's no better way to start a day in the mountains. We like to bracket our days by starting with a cup of coffee on the deck and returning home to watch the sky darken over the river while we cook on the grill and eat on the picnic table on the deck. River rafting, scenic drives to the many waterfalls in the area, day trips to other towns, enjoying local music and art festivals -- there's so much to do yet sometimes, we don't even want to leave the private retreat of No Worries.
