Bryson City Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

For Your Romantic Get-Away or Mountain Vacation! Huge living room, one bedroom, bath, full kitchen. Breathtaking views to infinity! Privacy! Comfort! World Class Fly-fishing in near-by crystal mountain steams and tumbling rivers.

Imagine: You’re relaxing on an open patio at 2600 feet elevation on a private 40-acre ridge. Before you undulate the Smoky Mountains, oldest in the world. Far on the right is an unobstructed view of 6643-foot high Clingman’s Dome, only 41 feet lower than the highest peak in the eastern United States. Blue skies and streaming clouds arch over these venerable mountains and their rich lode of flora and fauna. The world’s most diverse bio-system is yours to explore, with its cascading waterfalls, crystal trout streams, whitewater rivers, and stands of virgin forests. Enjoy!

Buffalo Creek Guest Cottage is luxurious, contemporary sophistication in one-level, cottage-style lodging. A flight of outdoor steps to this private perch is like a stairway to heaven for adoring couples. And for serious fly fishermen, a quality step up to accommodations that the famous ORVIS organization uses along with the Buffalo Creek Lodge. The cottage assures your comfort with air-conditioning, two satellite TVs, and ceiling fans in living room, dining area, bedroom, and bathroom. Light-finished pine paneling throughout.

The bedroom contains a queen bed, custom built-in clothes cabinetry, and TV nook. Overhead heat lights keep you cozy in a master-size bathroom with tub/shower, clothes closet, and built-in storage shelving. The living room is a study in complementary woods that brighten the interior. Floors are of beautifully-finished native pine while walls glow with white northern pine and large beams accent beaded pine in the cathedral ceiling. A love seat sofa overlooks a large coffee table to TV by satellite. Two facing, oversize daybed sofas offer total body comfort beyond imagining.

A full, open kitchen shares a corner of the living room ambiance. New appliances make your food preparation easy: electric stove, microwave, refrigerator with ice maker, coffee grinder and two pots. Utensils provided. Bar stools hug up to a beautiful wood counter top. Just steps away, your choice: a dining room table with four comfortable chairs or large, open patio deck with cedar furniture including dining table with umbrella, chairs including rockers, and bench. Also gas grill barbecue. Take in the morning sun with your first cup of coffee and favorite book on the intimate, secluded front porch. The private Buffalo Creek picnic area- 'The Pointe'- is now available to our guest. A two - three minute stroll from the Guest Cottage an you're there. Relax in a hammock , swing or comfortable lounge chairs. Great spot to grill out and watch the beautiful sun can also reserve the Pointe for a private day/evening for yourself or friends.

Returning from the UK for a second time

  • 5 of 5

We have just re-visited Buffalo Creek Guest Cottage for the second time and had another fantastic holiday there for 2 weeks. We enjoyed the cabin so much last year that we persuaded my parents to join us and they stayed in the owners other cabin, Bridge Cottage. They thoroughly enjoyed it too.

Beau is the most amazing host - extremely accommodating, thoughtful and generous. We also had some really fun evenings, watching the sun set over the Smoky Mountains. You never tire of the views.

This year we brought our mountain bikes with us so we went on several long rides on nearby trails.

Lulu's Restaurant in Sylva was recommended to us this year and we had a really nice lunch. The catfish was delicious.

What more could you ask for. Beautifully furnished cottage with national park and 2 national forests within 1/2 hour. Bryson City is hidden gem for those of us who shun the resorts and the hords.

The perfect way to unplug!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the cabin! Easy to find, just big enough for my husband and I to enjoy a weekend together. I loved that it was a 5 minute drive to the grocery store yet once in the cabin you felt like you were in the middle of no where.

We stay in a lot of cabins due to our love of trail racing and my biggest concern is always cleanliness. This cabin was clean, tidy and had just what we needed for our race weekend in Bryson City.

The only downside was the lack of internet access. The wifi was down but Beau, the owner, tried everything he could do to get in touch with the service provider so it really was out of his hands. And plus, did we really need to work while up in the beautiful mountains?

Thanks for a great retreat!

Beautiful, quiet area to vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Buffalo Creek Guest Cottage. We've been to the Smokies in the summer, this was our first time to be there in October, and the first time to stay on the North Carolina side. We love the mountains and like to spend time hiking the trails and taking in nature. It's a short drive to the Park and also about 20 minutes from Cherokee. We found Bryson City much less congested than Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. This cottage felt very secluded, but was only 5 minutes from a nice size grocery store and Bryson City. The leaves were beautiful and we really enjoyed our time there. The cottage was very comfortable and well kept. Our only disappointment was that due to the rain, we couldn't get full use out of the deck or the Pointe, buy that didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves. The views from the deck and the Pointe are gorgeous. We would definitely like to stay there again.

Nice, clean cabin and definitely affordable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Bryson City and we are very glad we chose this cabin over a hotel! It's centrally located near Cherokee and approximately 30 miles from Pigeon Forge. The cabin is neat, clean, and spacious. I loved that the bathroom is huge with plenty of space to keep your necessities. The open floor plan living space was great. A suggestion if I may: place the recliner where the love seat is so tired legs can be elevated after a day of activities. We met the owner, Beau, and appreciated his kindness in letting us park our motorcycle trailer on the trail to The Point. The Point is near the cabin and offers a covered cooking area, bathroom, screened porch, fire pit and an awesome view. Short walk from the cabin. Great place!
