About the property

"Mountain Time" (at Sky Cove) has been Newly Renovated, Tastefully Updated, and is ready for your enjoyment! Luxury Amenities, Designer appointments throughout, Just 10 minutes from downtown Bryson City, yet the Cabin offers an "Away from it all" Feeling!

As you arrive, you will drive up a paved mountain road, and will pass a few other cabins along the way. “Mountain Time” is at the end of a short side road, and sits on a “Knoll”, surrounded by Nature.

The kitchen, dining room and main level living spaces flow together for a roomy, light, and open floor plan with plenty of windows, and a complete wall of glass that emphasizes the Stunning Mountain Views. 

Solid surface countertops in the kitchen provide ample space for preparation and cooking. Additionally, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you will need to prepare and serve your home cooked meals. For the Chef in the Family, Grilling out has never been this "View-licious"!

The living space has soaring ceilings, a stone gas log fireplace, unique Designer décor, luxurious furniture and a 50 inch flat screen HDTV.  Just a few steps from the kitchen is the main level’s full bathroom with ceramic tile, a jetted tub. The laundry room offers a full size washing machine and dryer.

Proceed through the sliding doors, out onto the multi level deck to the comfortable seating choices, and a Sparkling Hot Tub. Stepping into the soothing bubbles is convenient and easy as you set the mood with wonderful starry skies above in the night time, and layers of Captivating Mountain views during the day!

A few steps from the Hot Tub deck will bring you to the Fire Pit, so bring the S'mores and brush up on those memory making fireside stories...

Kick back in one of the rocking chairs and enjoy your coffee as the fog lifts from the endless rolling mountains each morning.  Immediately adjacent is the gas grill.

The porch provides plenty of seating and space for enjoying Nature, Dining Al Fresco, and grilling with friends and family.

Come back inside to explore the rest of the cabin including the main level bedroom which offers a very comfortable and luxurious queen size bed (new in late 2017).

From the main room, journey up the staircase to the upstairs master bedroom!  The Master Bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed (new in 2018), and a private ensuite bathroom with a shower, 2nd satellite TV, and more spectacular mountain views...

Ready for a game shuffleboard?  Head downstairs to the game table in the main living space area. This shuffleboard table is bound to provide hours of Fun and Entertainment for the entire Family!

Whether you are here to explore the numerous scenic drives, or to Kayak, go White water rafting, Zip lining, Tubing, Mountain Biking, Boating on Fontana Lake, Hike the trails, and more... "Mountain Time" will make you feel at home, and keep you coming back again and again! 

For your convenience, we offer a few tips and optional 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.

About NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals

About the cabin Owners:

We purchased “Mountain Time” in the summer of 2017, and it has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. We both are Civil Engineers who love to travel and have a passion for the outdoors. We live in Indiana and often drove south for our vacations, many times seeking cooler temps, either at a beach or in the mountains. After almost two years of planning and searching for that perfect destination, we were able to purchase our vacation home in the mountains of Bryson City.

Why we chose Smoky Mountains:

We fell in love with Bryson City the first time we visited. It is quaint, friendly and surrounded by beautiful mountains. We visited Gatlinburg as well, but the lifestyle did not match us, so we kept coming back to Bryson City for its charm, laid-back atmosphere and the variety of activities to choose from. The more interested we became in Bryson City, the more we discovered about the many awards, Top 10 lists, etc.… where Bryson City and the surrounding area are recognized. We’ve spent quite a bit of time there and it is always difficult to load up the truck to go home.

Why NC Mountains Realty & Vacation Rentals chose Bryson City

Why this property:

We enjoy the odd pairing of “a place to get away” and conveniences. The grocery store is 10 minutes away, and the cabin is accessed by a paved road right up to our “drive”, which has a great level parking area. Nantahala Outdoor Center is 15 minutes southwest. Bryson City is 15 minutes east. But if you sit at the patio table or in the hot tub at the end of the day and look out, you will only see one farmhouse, perhaps 5 miles away, on the side of another mountain, with cattle in the pasture. It truly is a peaceful place, and it truly is difficult to leave. Being engineers, we find ourselves making plans to add, change, and improve the property. It is one of our “hobbies” that we can embrace rather than escape while we are at Mountain Time.

So we invite you to share our vacation home, sit down at the patio table with your favorite beverage, and see if you can find that farmhouse. With any luck you’ll hear the Great Smoky Mountain Train blow its horn during one of its excursions, or perhaps even better, you will hear nothing other than birds and the wind in the trees.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The owners of "Mountain Time" closed on the purchase of this cabin in early July 2017.

Because this cabin has never been on a Vacation Rental program (formerly a second home exclusively), there are no reviews...

The cabin is in a fabulously convenient location - Just 8 minutes from the intersection of Highway 74 (The Great Smoky Mountain Expressway) and Bryson City's exit #64, and within 10-15 minutes of shopping, dining, scenic train depot, white water rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, Hiking trails, fishing and swimming in Fontana Lake, tubing at Deep Creek, and so much more!

Offering a very private setting, Gorgeous Mountain Views, and 5 star amenities, we are confident that excellent reviews will be arriving very soon...

We are "picky" when it comes to which cabins we will offer you, so you don't have to be. It is just a matter of selecting the ideal fit for your group.

All of our properties have either Mountain Views or Pristine Creek settings, Sparkling Hot Tubs, and immaculate housekeeping.

I am proud to offer this property to our Guests, and it is a shining addition to our exclusive collection of Vacation Cabins!

Enjoyed our stay at Mountain Time

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked this cabin for a two-night weekend getaway and we enjoyed our trip. The house was very well stocked with everything we might need. HD Satellite (It kills me that many rentals don’t pay $10/month extra for HD service), Two big TVs, WIFI (not blazing fast but many places don’t provide any internet), plentiful cookware, gas grill and the hot tub all made for a nice stay for an early-30s couple. The view off the back deck is tremendous. The house was also very clean upon arrival. It came stocked with plenty of name-brand paper towels and toilet paper, which is another place many rentals like to cut costs.

About the only criticism we had was that the king mattress in the loft was extremely firm.

Overall, I was really pleased with the decision to book Mountain Time and will strongly consider booking the same house again in the future. (Although I might bring a mattress topper next time!)

Owner's Response: Hello Austin and Thank You so much for choosing Mountain Time, and for taking the time to submit this review! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I was thinking, instead of bringing a mattress topper, maybe you could use the queen bed in the bedroom on the main level? That bed offers a firm mattress with a memory foam topper that softens the firmness. The king bed is brand new (2018) and we appreciate your feedback. Please keep in mind that we love our repeat Guests and offer a discount code with your next stay. Kathleen Kathleen - Property Manager

That is how we started out, visiting more and more often, then we bought a second home, then we moved here permanently... Around here, "Stay-Cation" means you come on vacation and stay!
