First Class Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this cabin. It is top notch. You are "away from it all" but just a few minutes from the Nantahala Outdoor Center and several small stores. In 15-20 minutes you are in Bryson City where there are plenty of good choices for dining and shopping. As for the cabin, I can't imagine a better one. It was perfect for our family of five and certainly would accommodate more. The view, decks, den, furnishings, are bedrooms are all excellent. Especially worth a mention is the upstairs suite. Leave your electronic gadgets at home (or at least in the car) or use them for some music only and enjoy real life in God's creation here with your family and friends. I would love to return as often as possible.

Best view ever!

  • 5 of 5

Believe it when I tell you the pictures do NOT do this place justice! Sunset Ridge has unsurpassed views of Fontana Lake and the surrounding mountains. We've rented many homes in the mountains over the years and everyone in our group agreed that this was by far the best one we've had. It's like a slice of heaven. We were even graced with several rainbows and our pot of gold was our long weekend stay at Sunset Ridge. The home has a wonderful layout for a large group where the bedrooms are not on top of each other, affording everyone their privacy. The house was well equipped and appointed. We enjoyed hiking the surrounding area and visiting the town of Bryson City. But by far our most favorite was hanging around the cabin, playing jenga, enjoying the hot tub, making fires inside and out, and cooking meals with friends and family. Liz, the owner, was very accommodating and quick to respond to any requests. We highly recommend Sunset Ridge. We will certainly be back! Book it, you won't be disappointed!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Top Oasis was everything we wanted and more. we wanted a getaway that was near several different areas and it was the place. Spent A DAY EXPLORING AND DROVE TO CATALOOCHEE Valley loved viewing the elk and the 1800 homesteads. Rode the train from bryson /city along the Nannahalla Gorge, visited Deep Creek great place for a picnic and the over to Ashville to see the Biltmore. The cabin was great and we enjoyed the Hot tub and firepit almost every night. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. This will definitely be a cabin to revisit. There were only 4 of us but could easily accommodate 4 couples. The views were beautiful looking down at Fontanna Lake and early in the mornings the clouds lingering in the valley.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was everything we expected and more! Great layout for a large family. Spectacular views of Fontana Lake and the surrounding mountains. Within activities such a whitewater rafting, Smokey Mountain Train ride, tubing, trout fishing and farms. We had every age range in our group and all just LOVED this cabin. The owner was exceptional in handling all our request. A great vacation spot.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation and what a wonderful time we had. Sunset Ridge is everything it claims to be and more. The views were spectacular! There were nine of us and we all had our own space. We could all sit down for meals at the large dining room table. The beds were all super comfortable with top of the line linens. Same for the bathrooms. All the appliances were five star and new. We took day trips and all the attractions were within an hour's drive or so.

The only negative thing in my opinion would be the bonfire area. It should be larger. Perhaps pavers could extend all the way over to the fencing so as to allow room for more seating.

All in all we all had a fabulous time and are looking forward to booking another visit next summer.
