Whether you are looking for a Vacation Cabin to unwind at the end of an active day outdoors, or you just want Peaceful Privacy and Relaxation, "Paddlers Retreat" is ideally located between Bryson City, the Tsali, and the N.O.C!
Inside the cabin you will find a well appointed kitchen with everything you require to prepare and serve your meals. The open and spacious living room will easily seat a group of 8, as will the large dining room table.
In the Living Room, the Stone fireplace is the focal point!
For your entertainment, there are 3 flat screen TV's with satellite channels included. In the living room, there is a DVD player, assorted board and card games, and in the event of a rainy day, there is a Wii Game System.
The split floor plan does offer abundant privacy between the two bedrooms! On one side of the cabin, there is the Master Bedroom with King size bed (luxury linens and bedding are provided) and a private en suite bathroom. On the opposite side of the cabin, you will enjoy a "Jr. Master Suite" with a second King size bed (luxury linens are provided) and an adjoining full bathroom. Each bedroom offers a 32" flat screen television with an extensive selection of Channels to choose from.
The covered back deck offers several rocking chairs to relax and gather around the Fire Pit, enjoy a soak in the Sparkling hot tub, and Enjoy the ever changing beauty of the Smoky Mountains!
Outside: There is a large flat yard.
In 2017, the Private Nature Trail was upgraded and meanders through the back acreage, and leads to a lovely flat area beside a Mountain Stream that is covered by a canopy of shade trees.
It is quite relaxing to just take a walk in the woods, and the Nature trail is sure to be a hit with 2 and 4 legged Guests alike!
For the more adventurous hikers, there are trails (off the property and over US Forest Service land), that lead to Lake Fontana and within 2 miles of the Appalachian Trail!
Getting to the Cabin: Access to this private retreat is easy. Paddlers Retreat is located just over a mile from the main highway which is far enough to enjoy Peace and Quiet without "road noise" (it is so quiet, you could hear a pin drop). The road is not narrow or steep, and you do not feel as though you are "climbing the Mountain". Close enough to easily arrive at all the area activities quickly and without excess time in your car.
Ideally located between the Nantahala Outdoor Center and the Tsali Recreation and Mountain Biking Park, and Bryson City is less than 15 minutes away!
Additionally, we offer a few tips and optional convenience services:
... Also available is our Shopping service. If you would like to arrive at the Cabin with your Groceries already stocked, ask for details, we will have everything waiting for you upon your arrival.
... If you would like to enjoy a Spa Massage Service at the Cabin, it is a good idea to book in advance to assure availability. Your Professional Massage Therapist will come to you, so when you are done, they quietly disappear and leave you to relax!
... If your vacation dates are during 'Season' or Holidays and you plan to rent a pontoon or fishing boat, it may be a good idea to reserve in advance! Lake Fontana is primarily National Forest, Smoky Mountains, and Federally owned, so the Lake is never 'Busy', but the few available rental boats do get booked up.
