About Michael Davis

After hiking the Smokies for many years I discovered the Bryson City / Deep Creek area in 2012 and fell in love with it so much I decided to relocate here. Found my dream home which included a guest house which I have decided to rent out part time. Absolutely love all the beautiful scenery and outdoor activities.

Michael Davis purchased this barn in 2013

Why Michael Davis chose Bryson City Area

At 3000 feet elevation this place has beautiful views of the mountains and spectacular sunsets. The central location to rafting, boating, hiking and Bryson City couldn't be better.

What makes this barn unique

In less than 20 minutes or less you can get to Nantahala National Forest hiking, Fontana Reservoir boating / fishing, trout fishing in numerous creeks, kayaking / rafting at the Nantahala river, Smoky Mountain National Park hiking / tubing at Deep Creek and lots of fun activities and good food / drinks in Bryson City.

Great Thanksgiving Trip! 11/22/16-11/27/16

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for most of the week of Thanksgiving 2016 & had the BEST time!! The cabin/barn had all we needed to house our belongings as well as our doggie babies...not to mention I was able to make a fabulous Thanksgiving meal to. It was very peaceful & the view here is unbelievable!! We loved sitting out on the porch or the balcony off the back. The neighbors checked in on us while Mr. Michael was away & were so nice and helpful when needed. We hope to be back soon. ~The Smith's~

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet area. Very friendly host! Views were stunning and everyday was adventure. Place is actually a bit bigger than you would think. Very clean and has everything you could possibly need. Also for pet owners he has a cage you can borrow in case you need one. I would highly recommend this cabin anyday! Will definitely go here again if I'm in the area. Loved the stay!

Nothing short of AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance, nephew, a friend, and myself along with our two small dogs fit comfortably in this beautiful cabin. The view was incredible and there was plenty of room for everyone! The cabin had everything we needed and then some. The personal touches that Mike has throughout really make it feel like a home away from home. The wifi was fast, central heat worked great, and the water pressure in the shower was awesome. Mike went above and beyond to make sure our stay was amazing. He even lent us a huge crate to keep our pug in when we were out in town. We had dinner with him for New Years and you could really tell he loves entertaining and getting to know his guests. He was extremely hospitable without being overbearing and it was a wonderful vacation. Our dogs had a blast and the property is beautiful. We will DEFINITELY be back!

we absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Jonathan and I loved the Alarka Shanty Cabin, this was our first family vacation and it turned out to be perfect! Our sons ages 11 and 2 also loved the cabin. Michael the owner is a very nice person and also took our family on our first hike up the mountain near the cabin to see a water fall that was amazing, beautiful! The cabin was clean and smell so nice walking in. Had everything u would need, towels, wash clothes, cleaning items, hair dryer, you could really tell the owner cared and took care of this cabin! Thanks so much! WE WILL BE BACK SOON!
