Bryson City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom/3bath Renovated Lodge Surrounded By The Nantahala National Forest

The Lodge is located in the middle of the Nantahala National Forest. If you are looking for a rental in town this is not the one. If you are looking for beautiful accommodations in a one of a kind setting only a few hundred yards from Fontana Lake and surrounded by over 4000 acres of national forest then this is the only property for you. Wildlife abounds. The Wilderness (Flat Branch) public boat ramp is less than a half mile away. Access to the property is through a locked large iron gate a quarter mile into the Nantahala National Forest with views of the Smoky Mountain National Park across Fontana Lake. Property has monitored security system.

The Lodge is 3200 square feet and underwent complete renovation within the last year. New stainless steel appliances and granite counters throughout. All new pillow top beds. Three bedrooms: king bed, queen bed, bunk bed (with full size lower bunk) and full size pull out bed in game room sectional sofa. Front loading washer and dryer. All linens provided. Cabin is equipped with wireless high speed internet, Direct TV, two blue ray DVD players and a DVD library.

There are two rushing creeks on the property that you can see and hear from any of the three porches. On summer nights sleep to the sound of the creeks through an open window. Hiking trails abound a few minutes walk from the property on adjacent forest land, providing magnificent views of Fontana Lake and the Smoky Mountain National Park.

$150 cleaning fee and $500 security deposit.

9 Person Max Rental. No pets.

About Bill Cassidy

Our family has been coming to the Smoky Mountains for vacations for the past ten years and finally decided to purchase our own mountain get away last year. After a complete renovation, it is perfect for rest, relaxation and comfort. We hope you will choose to enjoy the Lodge at Bear Creek Cove too.

Bill Cassidy purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Bill Cassidy chose Bryson City

This is one of the only rental properties so close to Fontana Lake. It is within a 1/2 mile of a public boat ramp but one that is in a more secluded section of the lake. No other home in the area is so close to the lake and surrounded by 4000 acres of USFS land. Staying at the Lodge is like camping in your own forest with all the amenities of a five star hotel.

great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
We stayed there in the fall and the fire pit was a nice treat. The actual house itself is very secluded and peaceful. The house is very well adorned. There is plenty there to keep you busy. It is fully stocked with movies and games to play while indoors, including the air hockey table.. The furnishings were beautiful and comfortable. There are nice views from the glass enclosed sun room/dining area. It was very spacious and there is plenty of room for the adults to lounge in the evenings due to having two living areas.

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from an almost one week stay here. Our entire family enjoyed the stay. The owner was very easy to work with and provided all of the information needed in order to arrive successfully at the cabin. I would take seriously the suggestion to arrive in day light the very first time, as the gate and entry can be tricky for the first time. We did this and had no issues. Our family likes secluded properties so this one definitely fit the bill. The drive into Bryson City took a good 15-20 minutes, this was not a concern for us but it is something to be aware of if you like being close to town.
The house itself was very clean and ready for our arrival. The owner was accessible by email throughout our stay although we did not require assistance. I was a bit nervous this year as we put off scheduling our vacation later than usual and the selection of cabins for our dates was narrow by the time we finalized our plans, but this cabin was great for us. I would highly recommend this cabin to other families.
While here we visited Bryson City and the Deep Creek area, Smoky Mountain National Park in Cherokee, we went rafting on the Tuckesegee River, and made a daytrip to Asheville. We made a variety of meals at the cabin and found it well equipped for everything - including waffles. My daughter was thrilled!

Luxury with a rustic setting!

  • 5 of 5
Staying at the Lodge at Bear Creek Cove proved to be both an intimate and adventurous getaway in a rustic yet luxurious setting. We loved snuggling up near the wood burning fireplace on the main level of the home. The King bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable and relaxing with the open windows. It was a perfect way to start the morning. Taking the time to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner (especially breakfast) on the side porch is a must, as the creek is a short distance away and it added the perfect touch. We were pleasantly surprised that the kitchen was fully stocked and the owners had provided everything we needed for kitchen use (we just had to bring the food). Wood for the fire place and fire pit, as well as, propane for the grill was also provided. There was a small library of books/DVDs and an air hockey table. Although we were too busy hiking because the weather and scenery were too beautiful to stay inside, there were many family board games to choose from. Making a fire in the fire pit in the evening, which is by one of the creeks, is also a must! We initially intended to travel into Bryson city and Gatlinburg but the Lodge was so peaceful and secluded that it was an easy decision to forgo driving and instead hike through the mountain trails. I took my camera on our hike to the top of the mountain and was able to get amazing photographs of Fontana Lake with the Smoky Mountains in the background. Along our hike we also saw deer. The tranquility of the mountains and placement of the Lodge felt as though we were a million miles away from all the stress of everyday life. Our stay was definitely a spiritual experience and upon leaving we felt refreshed and rejuvenated. We are looking forward to celebrating our next anniversary at the Lodge.

Beautiful and Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at Bear Creek Lodge during the summer. The Lodge and property are far more beautiful then the pictures. The Lodge itself is first class. The amenities provided (towels, sheets, games, DVDs, kitchen accessories, etc.) were top notch. No expense was spared in making the Lodge first class. The feel and décor is both inviting and comfortable. The property is secluded making it feel as though you truly are ‘up’ in the mountains. However, Bryson City is just a ride down the mountain. With the two attached decks, outdoor fire pit (which the owner left wood for us to use), front porch and deck by the creek, it is hard to decide were you want to enjoy nature! We saw wild turkey, deer and my children’s favorite fireflies. Fontana Lake is gorgeous. The two separate streams/creeks going down each side of the property were beautiful and soothing. Playing air hockey without using quarters was great fun. We enjoyed visiting Fontana Damn, white-water rafting in the Nantahala River, separate picnic on the river, shopping downtown, and a day at the Biltmore Estate (hour+ drive, totally worth it, and eat at the Biltmore Stable Loft---most delicious hamburger I ever ate). We had planned to do more activities, but we found staying at the Lodge and enjoying the down time was perfect. There are plenty of other things to do in Bryson City and we cannot wait to return. Enjoy!
