My husband Jerry & I used to take vacation to various parts of the Smoky Mountains every year.. In 1996 we found this lot and view. We knew at once ''this is IT''. We bought the lot and waited till we got old enough to retire. Jerry retired from Publix warehouse in Lakeland and I retired from owning 2 hair salons and a wedding consultation/ cake business. We sold house and everything, moved here, built our chalet log cabin of our dreams. We really enjoyed living here the last 5 yr. till Jerry, a disabled Viet Nam veteran, died in Oct.at the Asheville VA Hospital. Although I absolutely love my home, I feel I need to be closer to my family in Florida now. I hope you will love this home even 1/2 as much as I do.

Helen Hughes purchased this cabin in 2005

Bryson City has so much 'water', so much entertainment for kids of all ages to enjoy. We built this as our home, but now I will be renting or selling it for others to enjoy.

Total RELAXATION, awaits you sitting or eating out on the deck, with such a fabulous view of undisturbed National Forest. At the end of a private 1/4 mi. driveway you have total privacy. A flat gravel yard and a great mountain to hike on. Fire Pit in back yard to roast marshmellows.40 mi. Views of Fall leaves or snow covered mountain tops. Holiday Retreat. 4 phones in home, and SATELITE WIFI INTERNET.

Beautiful property

Our family found this property to be perfect, from the accommodations to the view. The owner was accessible and quick to resolve minor issues when we first arrived. We were 4 adults & 2 teenagers with 2 dogs and found everyone had their space and were very comfortable. Its a beautiful property & highly recommended for a relaxing get away.

Owner's Response: Lissette, I'm glad you enjoyed your weeks visit. Thank you for understanding that the plumbing instance you experienced when you arrived was caused by previous renters flushing a diaper down the toilet. That's not a normal problem. I immediately called the septic company to come clear the line and pump the septic. Unfortunately, some people don't take care of a rental home as they would their own.

Since this is my home, I live there during off season. I am always upgrading, and maintaining my home, so as not to have any issues.

We really enjoyed three days in the secluded mountains of North Carolina. Bryson City is a quaint little community. We brought our grandchildren to ride the Polar Express. This mountain home more than met our needs. It was perfect.

Owner's Response: Joanna, Thank you, and I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to my home, and the Polar Express. Kids of all ages love the train ride to the North Pole. There's lots going on during the spring, summer and fall in the area also. Hope to have you again sometime.

My family and I were blown away by this cabin. It is so beautiful and clean! The views were outstanding. We really did feel like it was a home away from home. It is furnished with everything you could possibly need. We loved it so much that we are considering going back this summer for a week.

Owner's Response: Thank you Greig, I'm glad your family enjoyed my home and the Polar Express. Kids get excited about wearing their pajamas on a Polar Express that caters to them with cookies, cocoa, Santa etc.
My cabin was my full time home for 5 years till my husband died 3 yr ago. It's not just a cabin built and decorated just to rent. My 2 cleaning ladies, (my best friends on the mountain). take pride in cleaning my home after each guest. They only clean my home, so they don't have to rush thru like others do. I never have to worry about how clean my home is. I also pay them the same amount after I leave there.
I do hope ya'll will come back again. Check my calendar, and get your date scheduled with a 1/3 or 1/2 deposit. Plus being a returning guest, you will get a 10% discount off the regular rental rate. I rent from May 1st to Jan. 15th each year.
Thank you again, Helen

This was such a beautiful home, and perfectly clean, and views, that were unbelievable

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our few days, and will come back for sure. It is the perfect mountain get away. We were a little late in the season, so the local shopping, was closed. But the home was indeed a home away from home. We loved it. Thank you. The rocker/glider in the living room was the best part. I sat in that rocker, and all the troubles and worries and work of the outside world fell away. I have never been so relaxed. Thanks Helen, this was such a wonderful and healing respite for my very tired soul. Beth<><

Owner's Response: Beth, I am so glad you were able to relax and enjoy your visit. I agree, I love the glider rockers. Sometime you don't even realize you are rocking, it's just so comfortable and relaxing. I'd rather have a glider than a recliner. I want to thank your husband for being so helpful while there. Ya'll indeed left the home as clean as you found it. Thank you, and I hope you come back again, then, you will
get a 10% discount off the regular price as a returning guest.

The perfect place to stay

  • Submitted: Nov 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
My husband and I own land in Bryson City. We plan to build someday. For years we've been renting all over the Blue Ridge area. Franklin, Bryson City, Glenville, Highlands. I can honestly say Helen's place is the best. By far, the perfect place to stay. Breath taking views. There are short and long range mountain views. There seems to be a natural valley that comes together, which allows you to see further down the valley without trees obstructing your long range views. Just stunning. A Beautiful home. Wonderful location. The kitchen is fully stocked. And the beds are extremely comfortable. What more could one ask for. Your right near Fontana lake. One of the most pristine lakes in that area. The fishing is out of this world. There are 3 major rivers to chose from. Hiking, mountain biking. All within a short drive away. And, if you want to gamble. There is a casino 45 minutes away. Thank you Helen for sharing a slice of heaven...... We will be back again and again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sue, I'm always glad to have you as a regular visitor to my home. I remember when we were going up renting every year and just looking and measuring, planting flowers and trees on our Lot only. We bought the lot in 1993, but couldn't build until 2005., So, keep coming and yours will all come together one day. Just keep renting my home any time you can come up.
