About Mary Kraft

Settlers Mountain was created to share the wonderful Great Smoky Mountains with friends and family. What started as a personal retreat turned into a family enterprise. Bert and Mildred Kraft loved the mountains and its local people so they settled in Bryson City and built Settlers Mountain (circa 1959). Bert, being a very industrious person with the love of architecture, built the homes on the mountain and refurbished a hand-hewn chestnut log cabin built in the 1840's, one of only five left in the area. Settlers Mountain is owned and operated by the Kraft Family and is enjoyed by five generations of Kraft’s. We welcome you to make Settlers Mountain your retreat and create a lifetime of memories.

The Kraft Family

Mary Kraft purchased this house in 1959

If it weren't for a little rain the weekend would have been perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Viewpoint was perfect for what we needed and the view was better than ever anticipated! We were there for my daughters WCU graduation, plenty of room and stocked well even with extra roll away beds for changing needs! The hosts were very accommodating and just a text away if anything was needed. Would highly recommend and stay again! Missing the porch and view already

Great place for the family

Spent a week in the View Point Cabin with the family. Incredible views and a beautiful house. So much stuff to do in Bryson City, but I wouldn’t mind simply sitting on the deck all day long. This is a beautiful location. You feel like you're miles and miles away from civilization yet you're only a short distance from a great little town. The kids and I loved tubing on the river and the local model train museum. I spent a lot of my time on the back deck or the upstairs bedroom deck. (Couldn’t get enough of the view.) A great hiking trail (Jack Rabbit trail) starts at the end of the driveway. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and Mary was a pleasure to talk to on the phone. This will become a reoccurring trip!

I love staying here when I am visiting the Bryson City area.

  • 5 of 5

I love staying at the Viewpoint, it has amazing sunsets and sunrises. Love all the bird activity, especially the hummingbirds. The house is very warm, cozy and inviting. This is my 3rd time staying at the viewpoint and my 5th time staying with Settlers Mountain and it has always been a very enjoyable experience.

Couldn't ask for a better location, accomodations, and view

  • 5 of 5

Wasn't sure what to expect and once we arrived we realized it was picture perfect. The views are incredible and recharge you whether morning or evening. Loved having coffee on the deck watching the sun come up and drinks in the evening with family when the sun went down. The hiking trails are fantastic and a good bit of exercise. Staff is friendly and ready to serve. The houses are not only cute, but really affordable. Overall, you couldn't ask for a better bang for your money. Activities in Bryson City or surrounding towns give you more than enough to do the entire time. A definite revisit very soon.
