Bryson City 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.

Much needed getaway

  • 5 of 5

Nice cabin which provided both privacy and convienience with spectacular views as an added bonus. We enjoyed relaxing at The Pointe and on the deck in the evenings and mornings. Will definitely consider coming back to Bryson City to enjoy the activities we missed out on due to time constraints. Hopefully one of your cabins will be available! Thanks for a pleasant getaway experience!

Great place to relax and re-energize!

  • 4 of 5

We really loved staying in the "Cottage on the Hill" (m name) when we were lucky enough to spend two days in the Smokies on our way to a beach vacation in Florida! It is such a warm, comfortable place to rest your head after a hot, busy day hiking in the Deep Creek area of the Great Smoky Mnts.. It's location is spectacular! I am not at all familiar with this area, and was concerned that I would lose valuable time trying to find places to enjoy in the mountains. Thankfully, my concern was unfounded. Bryson City is just down the hill and by following signs we found loads of fun in the park! Bryson City is fantastic! We loved staying here!

A Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely perfect for my wife and I. We stayed here mainly to enjoy the National Park which was not far from the cabin at all. You knew going up the steep, winding, but paved driveway that a gem awaited you at the top. The cabin was very clean, private, and was a perfect place to rest before getting up and exploring the area all over again. Beau does a great job at maintaining his property, and the nearby town of Bryson City has everything you need. I took beautiful photos right from the deck of the mountains! Gatlinburg is too crowded and touristy for me, so this was a nice place to stay to not feel like you were in all of that, but could still investigate for a day if you did find yourself on the North side of the park. We simply couldn't have asked for a better place, price, and vacation to the Smoky Mountains. We will happily seek this property again when we get the chance to get back to the mountains.

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.
