Why The Owner chose Bryson City Area

This rental was built by the owner Thurman Breedlove. It was a labor of love! It is cozy and comfortable and Thurman’s creativity is everywhere from his award winning art work to his custom made furniture.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In my wildest day-dreams of some day owning my own "cabin in the woods" did I ever imagine a place as wonderful as this! The craftsmanship and the attention to detail are astounding.Thurman is an artist with the eye of an architect and the heart of a wood-crafter & painter. In short, Poplar Lodge is PERFECT. We enjoyed the remoteness of the cabin, the privacy, the "home feel, but also how close it was to Bryson City, Sylva and even to Dollywood where we drove to twice.

Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

We needed the experience this beautiful cabin gave so bad! It was exactly what me and my family needed. Private, excluding the cabin to the right of the deck up a hill, but with enough space that I didn't feel that they were right on top of us. Other than that, we had complete seclusion. You can see the mountains off of the deck and so many birds to listen to in the morning and peaceful and relaxing at night. All the Breedloves are so very accommodating and helpful! The cabin was clean and ready for us when we arrived, including the Jacuzzi tub which was amazing and can be made hotter or colder to suit your preference. The kitchen is stocked with every appliance needed, crockpot, blender, toaster, coffee maker, microwave. The cabin is so close to everything that you don't even have to use the kitchen if you don't want to, but if you do, make sure all ingredients and spices to make your desired meals are purchased. We wanted to keep room in the car and did all of our grocery shopping at Ingles which was a short 10-15 minute drive. There are TVs in all bedrooms if you want some alone time or wanting to watch different things. I especially loved that the second floor was closed off and private. Both bedrooms have a private full bath and comfortable beds. The location of the cabin is a short drive to any convenience, shopping, restaurants and other activities. There is a river that you drive along to get to the cabin, it has it's own entrance to the river where you can drive right down and park and explore or fish. My daughter loved playing there and at the cabin and had enough puzzles, games and books to entertain her and us. This trip was such a relaxing and healing time for all of us. We loved every minute. Would definitely stay here again and have already recommended the cabin to others.

Dog friendly, great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our daughter and her fiancé stayed this past October. The cabin was centrally located, yet very private. We brought our 2 pugs who also had the best time. The owners were very gracious and helpful with local attractions and ideas. The cabin has everything you need and is very clean. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful, quaint cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented many a cabin in our almost 15 years of marriage. This is the first he has said he would actually love to live in! It's perfect! The bed was super comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook wonderfully yummy meals. We really enjoyed the gorgeous views from the front porch as we rocked in the rocking chairs and relaxed in the hot tub. This cabin is tucked away down a private drive...there is a house above it but you can barely see it through the trees. Though it's tucked away it's still not far from town and all the fun shopping! We had such an amazing time celebrating my birthday on our weekend away without the kids. Will definitely be back!

My family of five returned this evening from a spring break getaway to Bryson City. The Poplar Lodge looked very nice on the internet, but we were blown away by just how beautiful and comfortable it is in person. The customer service upon our arrival was outstanding; I got a real sense that this is so much more than just a business to the family. My three children, ages 10, 8 and 7, are already planning our next spring break trip to the cabin!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Poplar Lodge this past weekend for our 14 year anniversary. We had an amazing time. Ginger was very helpful from making the reservation to getting to the cabin. We had a little trouble getting to the cabin, but Ginger stayed on the phone until we found it. Once we found it...the directions were right on cue....not sure how we had trouble! The craftsmanship and detail in the cabin was amazing. The hot tub was warm and waiting for our arrival. Bryson City is a charming town and we loved walking through the downtown area and visiting all the shops. The town was so friendly!! We will be back and hopefully sooner rather than later!

Great rafting get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We arrived into the area LATE Friday evening and got turned around on our GPS. I hated to call the rental agent because of the late hour, but I did and guess what SHE ANSWERED!! She even offered to meet me in town at 11:30 at night and personally take me to the cabin. Talk about customer service. (Note:once I put in the correct address we arrived NO problem!) We stayed with our 4 kids in the cabin and felt right at home. The cabin was very clean on arrival and the hot tub was ready and waiting for us after a long drive. The kids enjoyed the pool table and corn hole boards. There is a nice little outside fire pit area and plenty of wood on hand. It was only about 10 minutes to the NOC area and about 15 minutes to the tubing river. BONUS*** with 4 kids...their was a laundry room!!! I would recommend this to friends and family.
