Cranberry Falls Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Ryan's Roost is located just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway,in the beautiful Cranberry Falls area at a cool elevation of 4500 feet. It is private,and quiet, yet close to town. Smoky Mountain National Park is about a 20 minute drive via the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Cherokee, with Harrah's Casino is also just 20 minutes away. For outdoor enthusiasts, you are located within an hour of 3 whitewater rafting areas-the Nantahala, the Pigeon and the French Broad rivers, along with kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, and hiking. Waterfalls abound in the area. ATV riding is right out the door, with access to 5000 mountain acres. The Biltmore House is 40 minutes away in Asheville. You will enjoy all the special features of this new and very clean log home-gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, 32 in. flat screen TV in the living room and TVs in each bedroom, a Gamecube video player with games, DVD player, washer and dryer, and a barbecue grill on the covered deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have truly had an amazing time here at Ryan's Roost. After only 2 nights here, we're already dreading going home, back to reality. Luckily "reality" now involves a wedding-we're engaged! We'll remember this vacation for the rest of our lives and are forever grateful to you and your family for opening your home to us and allowing us this wonderful experience.

Relaxing, cozy and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Ryan's roost, with my 12-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter. The purpose of our trip was to spend time with family and to ride ATV's. The views were amazing and unforgettable. The cabin was beautiful and it was made to feel "right at home." Highly recommend this place to everyone for a family get-a-way and the cabin is just minutes away from Maggie Valley.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves-I spoke to your husband a few times during the week to answer some questions and he kept telling me how much fun you were having. It is a great place to go 4 wheeling and a great location for all kinds of activities. Come back soon. Barbara and Michael Ryan

Charming Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Adorable cabin. Very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway with Cherokee to the west & Maggie Valley to the east. The free phone service was a plus since you lose cell phone service about a half mile from the cabin. Dish satellite service goes in & out (weather...etc) so bring DVDs with you if you much watch tv during down time. We trailered two Harley's for the trip which was tricky maneuvering in the driveway, but could be done. It was great having the garage for the bikes when not in use. Very comfortable soft beds. If you're someone who can't be without cell service this may not be the area for you. I enjoyed the disconnect and being able to relax on the porch with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine!

Owner's Response: There is a cell phone booster in the cabin but one must have Verizon for it to work and then it is best early morning and evenings. I agree that it is good to take some time to disconnect from all the electronics. The garage is great for storing atvs and motorcycles. Glad you enjoyed the porch it is my favorite spot. Come back soon. Barbara and Michael

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a good time. It was really nice that you texted pictures of yourselves while out and about I don't usually get to "meet" the renters. You got to enjoy all the great places nearby such as gatlinburg and Harrahs casino plus fishing the nearby streams. Be sure to come back soon. Barbara and Michael

Top notch wood cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and roomy. I was impressed with the wood work of the entire cabin. Beautiful wood on the ceiling to the floor. The bathrooms were clean and well decorated. This is a high end cabin at a reasonable price. This was the very best cabin my wife and I ever stayed at. I highly recommend this cabin. You will not be disappointed.
