About NC Mountains Realty

The Owners live in Houston, Texas full time, but their hearts reside in the Mountains of N. Carolina! They are here as often as their schedule will allow, which, of course is not often enough!

NC Mountains Realty purchased this house in 2012

Why NC Mountains Realty chose Bryson City Area

When we saw this lovely parcel of land and the very noisy Creek meandering through it, we knew instantly it was "The One"! Well, one of "The One's" as we purchased another lot just up the road (photos of the overlook deck on that lot are posted in the Gallery).

What makes this house unique

We would love to hear from you! Call or email us to ask about "Watia Creekside"

Guestbook comments from the manager

While reading the reviews, many people are confused and call me regarding internet at the Cabin. Let me take a moment to clarify this for those whom it is important to:

As of July 2014 an internet hot spot is supplied, by the Owners, for limited Guest use. The "hot spot" supplies wireless internet for up to 5 devices at a time. The "hot spot" is connected to the Owners wireless cellular account, and usage is limited to Browsing the internet, surfing the web, and emailing. It is not suitable for streaming movies, online gaming, and large file transfers! Also, as with any internet provider, no guarantee is made regarding reliability and connectivity.

If you intend to stream movies or music, you should bring your own hot spot. If you have your own hot spot, there are connections for 3G and/or 4G.

I hope this helps to answer your connectivity questions. If not, feel free to call or email me!

The docks float, so in the summer you are swimming and boating in Lake Fontana. In the winter, when the water levels are let down, you can fly fish off the dock as it becomes 'white water'. In the event of a power outage (not common, but does sometimes happen) there is a whole house generator!

Property and amenities were amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the cabin with our two children (ages 9 and 11) in July. The property itself was beautiful - fully stocked kitchen, loft area for the kids to play foosball and watch tv, and a screened in porch where we played lots of cards and listened to the rushing creek. A highlight for our family was the private dock - we spent many hours fishing and swimming off the dock. We had a great stay and will be back for sure!

Watia Creekside was wonderful!! This is absolutely the most relaxing place I have ever stayed.

  • 5 of 5

We especially loved the screened porch. The king bed is a dream and the master shower is a true experience. My husband and I will be back next year. The only thing that would make it better is TV in the master bedroom. 5 stars

Wonderful Long Weekend - Already Planning Our Next Visit

  • 5 of 5

The most amazing vacation rental ever! Everything about this home is perfect! The location was easily accessible to the NOC; where we spent the day rafting. We enjoyed the fire pit by the stream. There was plenty of wood provided; as well as matches. The kitchen was not lacking anything that we needed; and I prepared 5 meals while we were there. There was even a spare propane tank for the gas grill. We enjoyed our meals on the screened in patio which was very roomy with comfortable seating. The hot tub was very clean and fit 6 of us perfectly. The upper loft housed the foosball table; sleeper sofa and large bathroom. The master suite was large with a resort style master bath. We even had plush bath robes supplied in the master bath. The second bedroom was a very nice size and the bath had a nice large soaker tub. The landscaping was beautiful! The home had plenty of "extras" I found as a nice surprise such as sufficient amounts of tissue; paper towels; garbage bags; and dishwashing/dishwasher detergent. We did not use the washer/dryer; but it was a very nice unit. This home went above and beyond my expectations! I just hope it is available the next time we visit!

You Won't Want To Leave

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been coming to this area for about 10-15 years and we all agreed that this was the nicest cabin we have ever stayed in. Immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. You can feel the calm come over you as you enter. Very private with a lovely creek beside the house. Great hot tub and everything you can think of in the kitchen. I love to cook and there was not one appliance or utensil that this home didn't have. The only negative I could say is the lighting in the home is not very bright. Beautiful, but not functional. Don't let that stop you- book it now!

Lap of luxury

  • 5 of 5

The most exceptional rental in years of staying in the area. Pictures don't show the beauty of this property. Better than described. We really loved the 8 ft. doors and huge open areas. Have never seen a cleaner place. Fires by the creek were wonderful as well as fires in the screened porch fireplace. Excellent master bedroom and great shower. Décor makes for a cozy home like feeling. Everything you could want and more. Directions were easy to follow and road in good shape. Will recommend without reservation. We loved it and will always remember this stay.
