Bryson City Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Log Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeping loft, Screened Porch (Sleeps 2~4)

A special message from owners, Ty and Sandy Nelson...

We purchased Log Heaven brand new in 2001 and it was love at first sight! Ty and I are originally from Chicago and the thought of owning a log cabin in the Smoky Mountains excited us beyond belief. The beautiful country heart pine wood floors, tongue and groove log interior, green metal roof and the enormous 25' vaulted ceiling with huge exposed beams took our breathe away.

We bought our log heaven for all the folks out there just like us who would love to experience a log home ... and appreciate the privacy ... tucked back in the woods ... with only nature and wildlife for neighbors.....

Adventuresome adults, honeymooners, those celebrating second honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays and all the other special occasions...especially love our privacy and beautifully landscaped setting. A Log Heaven is perfect for a couples getaway...romantic and secluded! It's also perfect for a girlfriends getaway...so many things to do...and that's without leaving the cabin!

Located only a few minutes from Bryson City, we offer a great location...(we think the best location of all)... right in the midst of everything ... an easily accessible road (that means you don't have to drive a 4-wheel drive vehicle), a driveway we've just paved, wonderful views that you will fall in love with, and nature and seclusion at its best... Recent guests were thrilled to discover deer in our back yard!!

With a large great room that has a 25' vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, an open floor plan, two bedrooms plus a large sleeping loft with French doors to a Juliet balcony overlooking beautiful sunset views, two bathrooms, a large screened porch and a front covered porch with rockers and swing... (both porches are on the second floor where you will enjoy the wonderful mountain breezes) and because we love games, we have a mini-game room with foosball and electronic darts ...we also have a large hot tub for adults use on our landscaped patio and a wood burning portable fire pit in the back yard.

We are just a few minutes away from Bryson City... known as the 'Outdoor Adventure' capital of the Great Smoky Mountains. Bryson City is a 'real' town...it isn't overrun with tourists, and it has it's own special quaintness and charm. With the terrain, outfitters and guides, Bryson City qualifies as the center of outdoor adventure in the Southeast. For four decades, the Nantahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City has provided rafting, paddling instruction, and supplies to adventurers of all ages.

We are centrally located for all of the Smoky Mountain activities! Bryson City offers unparalleled views, along with miles of hiking and biking trails (hike the Appalachian Trail...it is only 10 minutes from Log Heaven), mountain golf at the Smoky Mountain Country Club and the scenic Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. Nearby Fontana Lake is a beautiful mountain lake where you can swim, fish, and rent a pontoon boat for either half or the entire day.

Also nearby is the Nantahala Outdoor Center for white-water rafting and kayaking, horseback riding, and the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. Some of the most strenuous and scenic mountain biking trails in the east are found in the Tsali Recreation Area near Bryson City, Cherokee (where you can try your luck at Harrah's Casino or go to the wonderful new movie theatre), Gem Mining, and Deep Creek for tubing, hiking, horseback riding and picnics. Western North Carolina is absolutely great for flea-markets and antiquing ...and... maybe best of all, Ingles Supermarket is only minutes away.

Just throw the pressures and stress of your everyday life away, come to the mountains and enjoy unwinding and relaxing ....

We welcome you to our website, Log Heaven in Bryson City, North Carolina. I'm Sandy and my husband is Ty. We would love to have you as guests at our vacation home! Even though we are originally from Chicago, we now live in Columbia, SC. I guess you could say we also live in Bryson City, NC because we spend so much of our time there. We love to hike and the Appalachian Trail and Deep Creek are some of our favorite places. We also love nature and enjoy all the deer, owl, turkey and rabbit sightings on our property. Mostly, we just like to hang out...do some gardening, reading, enjoy our family, play games, and relax in the hot tub.

Tyler and Sandy Nelson purchased this cabin in 2001

In 2001, it seemed like a great idea to invest in vacation real estate. We had built Retreat in the Sky, our vacation home, three years previously and we had begun renting it to vacation guests with much success. We searched and searched to find another vacation home that guests would love and take good care of like it was their own... and that would be a good investment for us. When we found Log Heaven, it was exactly what we were looking for.

Log Heaven has so many outdoor spaces sometimes we just don't know where we want to 'be'. Our choices include; a covered front porch, a large screened porch, or...our patio with hot tub. Our location is close to Ingles and the town of Bryson City. We still pinch ourselves that we found the perfect vacation home for us and for our guests!

Quiet Comfort

If you wish to escape the hustle and bustle and hectic pace of your everyday life, you can find no better place than the idyllic “Log Heaven”. It is cozy, inviting, and set in the tranquil NC Mountains. The comfortable furniture and artful decorations enhanced our ability to relax and unwind. Waking up to only the sounds of the birds was a special treat. If you do want to “escape” the peaceful setting, nearby Bryson City offers many activities (golf, rafting, tubing, and Zip Lines) and excellent restaurants (Jimmy Macs was a favorite). Sandy and Ty are great hosts and their “Log Heaven” is appropriately named.

Quiet and Relaxing Days!

  • Submitted: Apr 27, 2010
  • Stayed: Aug 2006
Well...we accomplished what we came here to do...not much of anything!! It has been such a pleasure spending a few quiet and relaxing days in your lovely home. We have enjoyed grilling and dining on the back porch and using the hot tub. This is the first vacation I have been on that I didn't even mind the rain. This morning the kids slept in. After hubby and I had breakfast, a downpour arrived. As he dozed in front of the TV, I crept back to bed. I wanted to be there and listen to the rain. The next time I looked at the clock, over two hours had passed! I have had a very stressful year and have truly enjoyed the solitude that this place had to offer. While we don't have any funny or exciting tales to tell, we will go home refreshed and renewed and ready to face another day in the regular world.

Ty and Sandy, I hope that you treasure your home away from home, and I hope that families such as ours will be able to enjoy coming back here for years to come.

You have added so many thoughtful touches to help others enjoy this place. We appreciate so much the opportunity to come here and the telephone call in which Sandy just wanted to check on us. Our kids have discovered that you can have a good time just being with your family. Hoping tocome back again.

A Bear Story!

  • Submitted: Apr 27, 2010
  • Stayed: Jul 2006
What a perfectly relaxing vacation! Finally...several days without any time constraints. We had a hard time remembering what day it was. One of our highlights was when we were on "the Road to Nowhere"...we were discussing how cool it would be to see a bear. As we were speaking, I could not believe my eyes...there was a bear on the side of the road. I was scrambling for my camera so fast that I did not get to fully enjoy the moment.

The cabin was such a sanctuary for us. We enjoyed the hot tub, ping pong and lounging on the screened-in porch. Our favorite place to eat was Relia's Garden restaurant.

I LOVE the binder that the Nelsons created...very helpful! We felt very at home in this charming cabin.

We have really enjoyed our stay here. The place is beautiful and the weather has been great and everything is so convenient. For the first time in a long while the children didn't start whining "I'm bored". There was always something to do. I feel sure we will be back.

Thank you for sharing. It was great!

Fell in Love

We all just fell in love with your wonderful, cozy cabin. The kids loved all of the games so much they had to be forced to go out and have some fun in the surrounding area. The big kids (the adults) loved the cozy fireploace and all the interesting nick knacks about the place.

This is our first vacation to the North Carolina mountains and we hope to return when we can stay a lot longer.

We first visited A Log Heaven on the summer of 2002 with our whole family. We loved it and the kids loved it! There is so much to do in Bryson City and the surrounding areas! The cabin is absolutely fabulous -- charming, cozy, clean, excellent condition, beautifully decorated, private, close to everything, gorgeous open front porch and wonderful screened back porch with eating area, sitting area, and ping-pong table! We had so much fun! We visited again without our children this past October '07 for our 25th wedding anniversary and fell in love again with A Log Heaven, Bryson City, and the Smoky Mountains! Five years later we found A Log Heaven again in excellent condition in every way with new amenities which added to the overall beauty of the cabin and property!
There is SO much to do in the Bryson City area and during our two visits we took advantage of many things -- hiking, horseback riding, river rafting, a train ride through the mountains, biking, tubing, pontoon boat trip on Lake Fontana, restaurants and small-town shopping with some of the nicest people on earth...but we also just loved being at A Log Heaven as it is so peaceful, relaxing, cozy, and beautiful!
It was so nice to find that everything was exactly as described on the website since this was the first time we ventured to go somewhere without a personal recommendation! The owners are absolutely wonderful people and this was reflected in every element of our visits: inqiries, scheduling dates, necessary information from the owners about A Log Heaven and helpful suggestions about what to bring and things to do in the area, friendly communication about things like weather and odds & ends that would be helpful to us, best wishes for a great visit/vacation, follow-up, etc. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE WHICH WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND HAVE TOLD MANY FRIENDS ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!

Our Heavenly Stay

  • Submitted: Nov 28, 2007
  • Stayed: Apr 2007
We come to the Carolinas about every six months just to getaway and are a little paticular about where we stay. This past Spring we stayed at A Log Heaven and just loved it. Not only did we have the privacy we wanted, but the cabin was still close enough to town to get what we needed or to venture out for the day. And, Sandy and Ty have definitely provided an array of literature, brochures, ads, etc. to give you a wide variety of things to do. The comments in the journal from past guests was very helpful as well. There's always plenty to do at the cabin too. They've provided a nice library of books, games, music and satellite/cable. Or you can try your hand at ping pong or darts. There's even a tire swing for the kids. Some of our favorite things about the cabin was having our morning coffee out on the porch swing while we watched the wildlife and relaxing in the hot tub after a long day of hiking.

This is one of our favorite places by far! Always clean, cozy and comfortable. Everything you need and more. The Nelson's have thought of all of the ammenities you'll need so that you don't have to pack everything, but the kitchen sink. It's all of those special touches that make it so perfect and truly make it a "home away from home".
We can't wait to go back!

Wonderful Find in Bryson City

  • Stayed: Oct 2007
This is the second time that we spent time at Log Heaven! Last year we spent Thanksgiving here. The accomodations could not be better. The cabin is clean and well maintained. The cabin has wonderful decks where you can enjoy the mountain air and our kids loved the tire swing in the backyard.

The hot tub on the back patio is also a favorite. It is so peaceful and relaxing. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is the cabin to visit. It is secluded and has a very casual atmosphere. The kids love the ping pong table, darts and game table.

This time we came in October and brought our parents. They have not stopped talking about our long weekend at Log Heaven. They liked everything about it. Bryson City offers a lot to do. We took a ride on the Bryson City Train and enjoyed the beautiful leaves in October. We also hiked around the area too. There are a lot of good restaurants in Bryson City. One of our favorite is The Oaks. There is also a grill at Log Heaven so this visit we spent time grilling hot dogs and burgers.

The owners, Ty and Sandy, were very helpful and sent lots of ideas for entertainment. They were always available if we had a question. The property listing was very accurate. It was a pleasure to rent from them. We are already planning our next visit to Log Heaven.

The "Georgia Family" that will be back soon!
