About Susan Atherton

We are from the FLorida Keys and are both retired. We love to boat and fish there and love to travel and enjoy our time spent in the mountains.

Susan Atherton purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Susan Atherton chose Bryson City Area

We chose this beautiful 3.5 acres in this wonderful mountain gated community as we loved the feel of being in the forest and that the access road was easy to drive. Also that this property is located so close to all that the amenities and activities in this area. That it is very quiet and peaceful. I was raised in Eastern North Carolina and as a child we vacationed here in this area.

What makes this cabin unique

Quiet, gated community, easy access, close to everything. Private and a place to relax on the beautiful open deck or in our hot tub overlooking the mountains and listening to the sounds of wildlife. No street noise, no noisy neighbors just peace and quiet and a great place to hike or ride mountain bikes right here throughout our beautiful mountain community.

Perfect Family Vacation in the Perfect Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This fantastic cabin was the perfect getaway for my family of 5. The cabin itself is immaculately maintained and cleaned. It is incredibly spacious with lots of room for everyone to spread out and get some quiet time. Glorious kitchen, charming bedrooms, and two fantastic living rooms. Not to mention, the fantastic wraparound deck which instantly became our #1 dining spot- especially for breakfast. Super cute decor too-- my kids LOVED the bears. Jerry, the on-site contact, was incredibly friendly, helpful, and informative.

We also loved the area it was in. The town of Sylva was a favorite for us to go and wander through. We loved the microbrewery and the main street shops. We had a great time tubing at the nearby Deep Creek and we had the BEST time rafting the Nantahala River. We even enjoyed a drive through the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway! We also took a day trip to Asheville and enjoyed the Biltmore Estate in all of its summertime glory (spring for the audio tours and bring hiking shoes to walk the trails on the property). Other than the Asheville trip, everything else was about 20 minutes or less.

Definitely loved this place. Would love to go back. Highly recommend it!

Luxury Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was more luxurious than expected for the price and offered lots of room to relax and enjoy one's stay. Cabin was very nicely decorated and very clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. The hot tub was great. Sofas were very comfortable and TVs offered plenty of channels. Location close to many activities. Great stay for 2 or more persons.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most beautiful cabins that my family and I have ever stayed in. We came here for Thanksgiving and the inside of the cabin was more beautiful than what we expected. The rooms were nice and cozy and the décor was amazing! Will definitely stay here again.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful cabin during memorial weekend 2015. This cabin is the perfect get-away for couples or families. The home was very clean and organized. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook. Cabin is very accessible and located 15-20 mins away from Bryson city downtown. Steve and Susan were prompt in responding to our queries and questions.Highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking for a quite get-away.

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautifully decorated cabin in Feb 2015. The gourmet kitchen had everything imaginable to prepare and cook meals. The pictures did not do justice to the large open space and coziness of this place. Nice quit setting yet so close to great restaurants and fun entertainment. We wished we could've stayed longer. The owners were very friendly and very easy to get in touch with. We will definitely be booking here next vacation! Jerry (the guy who met us to give us cabin information) was so helpful and friendly as well.
