Amazing! Best stay ever!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I work very demanding and stressful jobs and are accountable 7 days a week to our staff. We were looking for a nice getaway tucked up on a mountain with a view. This cabin delivered the on all points and then some. There was not 1 single thing we wished it had. The view is absolutely breathtaking! It was very welcoming as soon as you walked in the door. We will definitely be back! You just got yourselves forever customers. Thank you for giving us what we so desperately needed.

Owner's Response: Hello Phillip, We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed yourselves at Smoky Mountain Dawn! I feel like I should share with you the story about how this relaxing and welcoming retreat came to be. The current owners bought this cabin about 5 years ago, after the bank foreclosed upon the former owner. As you may imagine, the cabin was in a sad state of disrepair, and was stripped of all fixtures. The current owner had health issues and thought he was dying. He wanted to create a gift of Love for his Amazing wife, Dawn. He worked tirelessly and spared no expense renovating the cabin, and all of the bathrooms, kitchen, etc... have been updated and are all brand new! Not long after the cabin was done, he received word from the Doctors that he was mis-diagnosed, and was indeed not dying. Fast forward to today, both of the Owners are alive and well, and enjoy the cabin as often as they can get away, which is not often enough... This labor of Love shines through!

Enjoyed the 4 night

Getaway. Part rest partly work.

Needs a new coffee pot and squeaky doors oiled. Other than that a wonderful retreat. Too early for fall colors but it will be glorious.

Owner's Response: Hello Cindi, and Thank You so much for taking the time to submit your review, and for mentioning that our maintenance person delivered a new coffee maker and used good old fashioned WD-40 to eliminate the squeaky door hinge. We are glad you enjoyed your much needed relaxation retreat! Kathleen - Property Manager

Wonderful Cabin near so many things to do

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Smoky Mountain Dawn for 8 days. Wonderful place to explore local hiking trails in the Smokies with our young family. Beautiful and well appointed, and cozy for our family of 5, more than enough space. Hot tub was excellent, kitchen very usable, and wonderful views! We enjoyed Bryson City's many good eats and wish we could have spent more time here. The Cherokee museum was worth visiting. To top it off, it was a fantastic place to see the Eclipse of 2017! The drive up the mountain was slightly intimidating the first day, but not a problem afterwards. We would come back!!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed this cabin very much. The location was convenient to all the activities we wanted to do. We went on a few hikes, gem mining, fishing, and went tubing in Deep Creek. Our kids (5&8) loved tubing and playing in the creeks. They also loved playing in the River Island park in Cherokee. We were driving back from hiking to Chasteen Creek Falls and got to see tons of elk near the Oconaluftee visitors center. The cabin had plenty of space for our family and everything was exactly as pictured! Only suggestion I would have is to have a better fire pit...the current one is basically just a ring of small flat stones. The views from the cabin are beautiful!

Great view!

  • 5 of 5

The view was exactly what we wanted and were looking for. It was quiet and secluded and the best way to spend our anniversary! The cabin was very clean, comfortable, and decorated very cute! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook and the hot tub was the perfect thing to do at night. The master bedroom was gorgeous! If I had one suggestion it might be to get more comfortable chairs for outside because with a view as gorgeous as it was, we spent almost all day outside on the porch relaxing and reading and the chairs got a little hard so maybe some more cushions or loungers for the outside so a visitor could be even more comfortable in this great cabin! Would definitely stay again!!

About NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals

The Owners presently live in Florida, and enjoy their Mountain Cabin as often as possible! Dawn is still working full time, and is writing a novel in her spare time, thus the lovely desk "nook" in the loft. Roger is retired, but probably works more now than ever before!

NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals purchased this cabin in 2014

Why NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals chose Bryson City

When Roger and Dawn laid eyes on this cabin, it was "Love at first Sight"! Although the cabin was not that old, it did need quite a bit of work to bring it to it's present "Glory"! Roger and Dawn conquered that challenge Brilliantly!

What makes this cabin unique

Views of the Great Smoky Mountains and Clingman's Dome from the expansive decks! 10 min. to town, shopping, dining, and more! We would love to hear from You, Call or email us and ask about "Smoky Mountain Dawn" ***Online Booking Available 24/7***
