About Karen Bartlett

I have been in the real estate industry since 2005. My background in design has been instrumental with the design and interior décor for many vacation rental homes. It is a pleasure to work with many vacationers visiting the area. The outdoor recreational activities offered by area are unparalleled. Your favorite could be hiking, biking, rafting, kayaking, fishing on one of the local streams, rivers, or Fontana Lake. The area offers the outdoor enthusiast their own playground. I look forward to hearing about your experience here in the Great Smoky Mountains!

                                                      Beautiful cabin and amazing views!

                                                      WECWest Columbia, SC

                                                      We were searching for a relaxing weekend away from it all and that is exactly what we got. The cabin was beautiful inside and out. Not completely secluded but definitely sufficient privacy and cabins were not located on top of each other like many cabin resorts. Loved sitting in the loft, looking out on the mountains and reading. My wife loved the gas fireplace. Bryson City is just a few minutes away, but we never left the cabin. Everything we needed was there. Despite our best intentions, we arrived after dark. No real problems other than turning into the wrong driveway once. Perfect weekend!

                                                      Beautiful Vacation in a Heavenly Setting

                                                      Pratibha S.

                                                      The Paradise Found was a beautiful cabin we (4 adults + 1 dog) stayed in in our week long visit to Smokies. The cabin is wonderfully set with amazing views of the Forest. The cabin it self was well furnished with all amenities in place. The hot tub is a salt water one and takes a while to reach required heat levels so you can set it before you leave for the day in the Smokies. Chester was a great host and had all the answers. He came out when we called and stopped a while for a chat. The drive to nearest grocery store is 10 mins and the town is 20 mins away. The Railroad, The Nantahala Brewing company and the Nantahala Winery for pizza are a must visit in Bryson City and for the pet families the Crystelle Creek restaurant just outside Gatlinburg is a great place to eat. The Railroad does not allow pets so we booked a dog sitting for him which was easy to find.

                                                      We fully enjoyed our stay at Paradise Cabin. The view far exceeded our expectations. The quality of furnishings and appointments in the cabin is superb and we really appreciated the very comfortable bed.

                                                      The cabin truly provided a wonderful Smoky Mountain experience.

                                                      Wonderful stay in the mountains

                                                      Chantel D.North Carolina

                                                      We just returned from a short 3 day stay at Paradise Found and what a wonderful stay it was. The cabin is beautifully decorated, clean as a whistle, and has everything you could possibly need. While the drive up is steep it is easy to navigate after the first time up. I recommend traveling to the cabin during the daylight hours the first time just to get a feel for the roads and turns. We traveled with another couple and there was just enough room. The cabin is about 10 minutes from the closest grocery store and then another 5 minutes to downtown Bryson City which is just spectacular for a small mountain town city. You won't be disappointed with a stay in Paradise Found.

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      Dear Chantel, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Paradise Found is a beautiful place. Thanks for The 5 Star Review. We appreciate the comments on the road. A lot of people do think the road may be a little steep, but you are correct. If you arrive during daylight hours, it is much easier to navigate. Especially if it's your first time here.
