About Donnie Mohn

I bought 'Horse Shoe Bend' in 2006. To me the Smoky Mountain Region had always been appealing. There is endless beauty and a rich history throughout the area. My son, Donnie handles the rentals for the cabin and we visit it often as we enjoy our trips there every bit as much as our guests. We welcome you to visit 'Horse Shoe Bend' on your next visit to the great Smoky Mountains.

Why Donnie Mohn chose Bryson City Area

This particular location is so convenient to all there is to offer yet it is located off of the beaten path and offers such peace and quiet after a day of taking in all of the sights and activities in the area.

Tucked Away on a Mountain Side

  • 5 of 5

We would like to Thank the owners, Donnie and Brenda Mohn for sharing there BEAUTIFUL home in the mountains with us. We recommend the rental of this cabin to anyone who is planning time away in the mountains. The cabin is very spacious and fully stocked with everything you need, just bring your clothes and food, and enjoy the peace and quiet after a day of adventures or just hang out at the cabin all day. Either way you can't go wrong choosing this cabin for vacation or just a get away for a few days. We enjoyed cooking out on the grill (that is provided), building a small fire in the fire pit and relaxing in the hot tub during the evenings. The next time we decide to vacation in the mountains, the Horse Shoe Bend will be our first choice to see if it is available. We look forward to our next stay.

Fun time! Cozy and secluded!

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at Horse Shoe Bend... there's a reason we came back. House is close to all the fun things to do in Cherokee but we spent a lot of time hanging out on the porches and in the hot tub!! Great spaces inside---worked well for our two combined families of kids and dogs. Well equipped kitchen and owners were awesome to work with… We will definitely be back I'm sure!

Quite Cabin in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Horse Shoe Bend for a week in July. It was a very nice cabin with plenty of room for my family of 6. The kitchen was well stocked with pots & pans, there was a charcoal grill and a fire pit for s'mores. The hot tub was a very nice addition and larger than I expected. The location of the cabin was perfect for a quiet get away (seriously think we were the only ones on the mountain) and conveniently located between Cherokee and Bryson City. If you are looking for more excitement I would suggest going into Bryson for food/drinks/shopping and the best tubing around! This is also about a 15 minute drive to the smokies and some great hiking! If you have time drive to Soco falls (a lot less crowded than most of the waterfalls). Also, give sliding rock a try if you head out to Pisgah Nat'l Forest. Overall, the location of the cabin provided for many day time adventures and quiet evenings. Thanks for a relaxing getaway!
