Cabin with 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Private and With Beautiful Mountain Views
About Sandy Nelson
Ty and I have been sharing our vacation home, Retreat in the Sky, with guests for over seventeen years. It has been fun, sometimes very challenging...but most of all...a rewarding experience. Our goal is... and has always been ....to provide a wonderful vacation experience for our guests..
Sandy Nelson purchased this Cabin in 1998
Why Sandy Nelson chose Bryson City
We fell in love with Bryson City the first time we visited. It is quaint, friendly and surrounded by beautiful mountains. We found the perfect spot to build our second home. It's close to the top of Bear Cove Mountain in the Smokies. Our view is beautiful. Retreat in the Sky has a privacy that is hard to describe. Our first home is three hours away and seventeen years later, with our car packed with all our stuff, heading for Bryson City and our Retreat in the Sky, we're still excited.... after all these years, we still can't wait to get there.
What makes this Cabin unique
Sitting on the swing on our deck...enjoying the beautiful view...is the ultimate in relaxation. Retreat in the Sky can only be reached by driving up the private road and then you drive up some more on our paved driveway. We are not on the road so no one can see us or drive by us. So you see, we also have the ultimate in privacy. We not only have a beautiful deck filled with flowers and a wonderfully landscaped setting, but a large screened porch complete with hot tub and a great place to hang out. We're only five minutes from Ingles Supermarket, the quaint town of Bryson City and only ten minutes from just about everywhere else. We took a survey from vrbo/homeaway a few years back that results showed that only 21% of property owners that rent their vacation homes use it themselves. We use ours every chance we get. Not only because we love being there but because we want to maintain the high standards we set for ourselves in maintaining our beautiful vacation home. .

Great views of the mountains and very pleasant stay
The views are amazing! The house is very quaint and feels like home. The hot tub was wonderful and the fact that it is in the screened in porch is a definite plus in the winter months! My wife and I look forward to visiting again! Overall great get-away experience!
Retreat in the Sky is amazing. It’s like being at home with an incredible view. We will be back.
The minute we walked in the cabin, it felt comfortable and relaxing. It is decorated so cute. Sandy was wonderful and gave lots of information on what the area has to offer. We loved the view from the loft bed of the mountains every morning. The kitchen is fully stocked and we only had to bring the food we were going to eat and there is a lovely grocery in town. Bryson City is in the center of all there is to do and the drives are spectacular. We just kept saying, “We don’t ever want to leave.” Thank you Ty and Sandy for welcoming us to Retreat in the Sky and the unforgettable vacation. We will be back!
Quite and relaxing!!!
Beautiful mountain hideaway!!!
Great location and uncrowded time of year to visit Smoky Mountain National Park & Nantahalla Forest.
Best time of year is last week of September thru early October. Not crowded to visit Smoky Mountain National Park & surrounding area. Our cabin was comfortable & very clean w/hot tub. Geared towards couples. Close to grocery store & shopping in Bryson City, NC
Gorgeous view, wonderful cabin
What a nice getaway! Fantastic view. Very clean. We enjoyed it very much! Thank you.
Awesome Retreat in the Sky, spectacular views, wonderful hosts!
While this was our first time staying at this wonderful home, it definitely will not be the last. Sandy was most helpful in providing all the preliminary information to help us maximize the experience. My wife and I took advantage of the many activities close to this location and plan more for our next visit. If you are looking for the complete package in a getaway retreat, this is truly that. Thanks so much Sandy, you will be hearing from us again.
The most exciting new activity has to be ziplining....our guests just rave about how much fun it is...take a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway... it is unforgettable...pack a picnic lunch (picnic pack for two at Retreat for guests use) and mountain gaze, and you must go to Highlands and Cashiers (great shopping and restaurants) and visit all of the waterfalls in the area, the Biltmore Estate in Asheville is only one hour away...you should plan to spend the entire day as there is so much to see, go for a hike at the Joyce Kilmer forest or Deep Creek, visit Dollywood and stop at all the outlets on the way, Win some $$ to take home at Harrahs Casino in Cherokee and enjoy a great dinner there as well. You will NEVER run out of things to do. Or, never leave, sit on the deck at Retreat in the Sky and enjoy the privacy, the wonderful view and each other!
