Overview

Bryson City Area Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 4-6

Are you looking for a mountain getaway that offers privacy and tranquility, but is still close to all the action in the Smokies? Come stay a while at the Little Cove Cabin and find what you've been looking for!

Tucked away in a little cove in the woods, you can relax on the large front porch and watch the abundant wildlife around you or swing in the hammock in the front yard while listening to the babbling brook near by. Wild turkeys, raccoons, rabbits, foxes, coyotes, and even an occasional catamount and black bear have all been seen here!

Hike through the acres of woods that surround the cabin, or fish for rainbow and speckled trout in the bold creek just down the road. In the evenings, you can roast marshmallows at the fire pit where you can sometimes hear an old Barred Owl hooting in the trees nearby. Take a long stroll up the East Fork creek where 100+ year old farm houses, grazing horses and cattle, and rustic old barns and silos whisper the stories from a bye gone era.

Newly renovated, this romantic little A-Frame log cabin has all the modern comforts of home while maintaining the rustic nostalgia of a cozy little cabin in the woods! The cabin has a queen-sized bed in the downstairs bedroom and a second queen-sized bed in the loft bedroom. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living area that helps to accommodate up to 6 people. A fully equipped kitchen and separate laundry room have everything you will need for your stay. The cabin also has wireless internet access throughout and a flat screen HDTV with Directv programming. Outside, there is a Weber gas grill, dining and picnic tables and plenty of seating for enjoying meals outside. Also, our newly installed 6 person hot tub is perfect for a relaxing soak after a long day of fun in the mountains.

Conveniently located only 10 minutes from the charming town of historic Dillsboro and 15 minutes from Sylva, Franklin, and Western Carolina University. The towns of Cherokee and Waynesville are just a 30 minute or less drive away.

If your looking for a cozy place to relax, decompress, and get back to nature, you will find everything you're looking for in the Little Cove!

About Kimberly Gray

My husband and I live and work in Sylva and are busy parents to our 4 small children. My husband works for the phone company and I am a potter that enjoys playing in the mud all day. We feel very blessed to be able to live and raise our children in these beautiful mountains.

Kimberly Gray purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Kimberly Gray chose Bryson City Area

This property has been in my family for over 200 years. Growing up in Maryland, I have many fond childhood memories of my family's regular visits to the mountains and staying in the Little Cove. Playing in the woods and catching crawdads in the creek with my brother were some of my favorite things to do.

Originally built in the 1970's, the aging Little Cove cabin was in need of some TLC. As a result, a few years ago, my husband and I began a 2 year 'rebuild'. The result was a brand new home with the nostalgic charm of an old mountain A-Frame cabin. We are proud of the hard-work and love we've poured into this cabin and hope that many families will now make special memories of their own in the Little Cove.

Beautiful, Relaxing Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time here for our honeymoon in May 2016. The cabin was everything we had wanted and Kimberly was an excellent host. Any issues we had (they were few and far between, and very minor at that) were dealt with quickly and to our satisfaction. She even left complimentary marshmallows, ice cream cones, and chocolate so we could make "campfire cones." We loved staying in this beautiful cabin and would definitely come back.

One piece of advice, the street the cabin is on is a very steep hill. I would recommend renting a bigger vehicle if you are staying here. My wife and I went the cheapest route and got a small compact car that barely made it up the hill! We needed a running start as one reviewer has previously described.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a chance to spend a couple of days at Little Cove while we were visiting our son. It's so pretty, especially in the spring and the location is terrific. Whenever we can, we like to stay to stay here. Kimberly and Josh have done so much to make your visit great. The rooms are very clean and there is a nice garden around the house. One of the restaurants we went to was Wolfgangs in Highlands. Outstanding.

Perfect Mountain Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Cabin In The Woods. It was a perfect getaway for just the two of us and our dog. Easy to get to, secluded but close to town if you needed anything. Convenient to Dillsboro and Sylva. And The Great Smokey National Park just 30 to 40 minutes away. The Christmas Shop in Dillsboro is a must and we were lucky enough to be in town for The Greening of the Mountain Festival in Sylva. The cabin was exactly as described. We loved the babbling brook right next to the hot tub and the deck was the perfect spot for a late lunch. We loved the welcome sign on the fridge and the treats, both human and dog were a nice surprise. The cabin owners gave us their cell numbers in case we needed anything, which we didn't. It was a perfect way to recharge our batteries and just what we needed. The only negative was that a long weekend just isn't enough.

Can't wait to go back again!

Great Place to Chill Out or Adventure Out!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this little cabin. We have stayed in many VRBOs over the last few years and we can honestly say it was one of the cleanest and well stocked rentals we have been in. Highly recommend!

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (with 3 sons) visited for a long Easter weekend and the Little Cove Cabin exceeded expectations. There is so much to do nearby – we zip-lined, hiked, and toured WCU and Cherokee. When we weren’t out and about, we loved just hanging around the secluded cabin. It was awesome seeing the boys explore the property and not even give a second thought to TV or their gadgets. The cabin is fantastic inside, but we spent as much time as possible outside grilling, hanging out by the fire pit, or in the hot tub. We will be back!

Amazing! Little Cove was just as we expected. Very cozy. Loved the layout and setting.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Little Cove. It has a perfect setting. Secluded,and very neat. The stream running by is very soothing. Loved the hot tub. The cabin is very well laid out. It fit our needs exact. The personal welcome note that was attached to Refrigerator, was a great touch. We will definitely be staying again in the future.
