A family of 5 is easily accommodated with a roll away bed. Port-a-crib also available.

About Tammy

Both of us are 'Yankees'! New Jersey (what exit?) & Ohio (Go Buckeyes), transplanted to sunny South Florida in the 70's. Missing the change of seasons and starting over, we both moved to the mountains in 1995 and 1996 respectively. Known as 'halfbacks' here. (we only made it half way back to the north.) We do love the mountains and all they have to offer. We have 6 children between us and 8 grandchildren. So we are kid friendly and also pet friendly. Spencer, our rescued lab mix fur baby is anxious to make friends with your fur baby.

Tammy purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Tammy chose Bryson City

The Cottage was originally bought for an aging parent, so they could come to the mountains to be near us. After all the kids left home, (yes we are empty nesters,) we toyed with the idea of starting The Cottage and that is how it came to fruition. We have just finished our 8th year and we are looking forward to future years. With the addition of The Cottage "too" and the Cozy Nook we are the perfect place for family reunions. everyone can be together yet have your own space. The new friends we have made, have been a blessing.

What makes this cottage unique

Built in 1925, is has been totally renovated, keeping some of the old qualities, the original porcelain farm sink and table in the kitchen to the original old doors and doorknobs, all in working order. Some of the old windows hang on the wall as added decor. We are convenient to downtown and all the surrounding area attractions. Yet it is quiet and relaxing. Weather you're sitting on the porch listening to the sounds of the mountains or sitting by the campfire enjoying hot dogs and marshmallows. The summer months bring an incredible light show of lightening bugs for the children to enjoy and catch in what we call the lower forty.

This Place is FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so charming, quiet and peaceful yet it is just seconds away from Bryson City and the restaurants as well as being located next to all of the attractions in the area. The Cottage is very comfy, beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Loved the fact that it was pet friendly, and had plenty of room for our truck and trailer (we hauled up our Harley). The owners are wonderful. We felt like it was our home away from home. We will be definitely being returning in the near future. Kudos to Tammy and Danny! (Owners)

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage is the perfect place for a family getaway! We had a great time, our kids loved it and already want to know when we will come back. Ms Tammy is an angel and I nearly cried telling her goodbye after only 5 days! We will be back soon to visit, Ms Tammy and Mr Danny!

The perfect polar express experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled to Bryson City to ride the polar express and this lovely cottage made the trip even more magical. When we pulled up Tammy had on Christmas lights outside as well as inside with a adorable tree. They went above and beyond by having a gifts under the tree for each child. It really felt as though we were staying with family who decorated and prepared for our arrival. Thank you so much for sharing your home and also for suggesting Maggie valley for snow tubing. We had a great time. Would definitely recommend and would love to return!

Spring has sprung, there are new train excursions beginning this year. The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad is a hop, skip and a jump away from the cottages. How convenient for those tired kiddos after a scenic train ride. Ask about discounted tickets. We can't wait to see you.There is so much to do, Whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River, tubing & kayaking on the Tuckaseegee River, Boating on Fontana Lake. Fishing on the Oconoluftee River in nearby Cherokee. Ziplining in the Nantahala Gorge. Picnicking in nearby Deep Creek. Shopping in the quaint little shops of downtown Bryson City. Outlet Shopping is now in Asheville and just over the mountain in Pigeon Forge,Tn. The Smoky Mtn Railroad has daily excursions as well as special events throughout the year. The Polar Express, The Great Pumpkin,The Wizard of Oz Train, just to name a few. The Cherokee Indian Reservation has a variety of attractions. The Oconaluftee Indian Village has daily tours. Unto These Hills is an outdoor drama that tells about the Trail of Tears performed nightly in the summer season is a must see. Harrah's Casino for the fun loving gambler in you as well as special events and concerts. Check their web sight for upcoming concerts & events. There are several restaurants too, including Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. The renowned Biltmore House in Asheville is phenomenal in the winter & spring seasons. There is so much to see and do that it is hard to even list it all. Check out the local Chamber of Commerce page for more ideas.
