Why Larry Braswell chose Almond
This property is centrally located with a ton of activities their is no way you can do it all in a week trust me. Our property is so peaceful and very quiet. We love to eat outside on the deck or by the fire pit. And the smell of mountain air will take your breath away. Some guest never leave our home.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this home , its location at the lower part of the mountain so we have access year round and that's what we wanted. The spring fed lake and fishing and we hike our area all the time just love it here.

Great area to stay!
Very nice chalet! Great to set out on the huge deck and listen to the tree frogs sing their song in the evenings. Larry has them trained to croak in unison! The granddaughters enjoyed making s'mores around the campfire and tubing. Great area to take a hike or fish or swim or close enough to drive to town for a Smokey Mountain adventure.
A little slice of heaven in the mountains!
Very nice. It was great having a bathroom on each floor.
Close to lots of things to do. We did so many things in just one week.
Just a little disappointed, online it looked like the lake was part of the property. We didn't feel comfortable using the lake.
Wi-Fi had very poor signal for us. However, that was not a major issue at all.
Superb family getaway
Our family of 7 had a fantastic time On Golden Pond. Our children especially loved the books in every room, tv in the "teen room" i.e. bedroom with two queen beds, the pond and the hot tub. It is a beautiful location and the area has a lot to offer.
Is a beautiful home in the middle of the woods...
My entire family felt in love with the property. The owner was very helpful. There is everything you need in the house and more.
Returning guest, will be back again!
This was my 2nd stay at this property. It's a perfect setup for either families or small groups of friends, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, each on a different floor. The location is excellent, only a short drive off of highway 28 from either Fontana Village or Bryson City, yet it is incredibly quiet in the area, with only the sounds of wildlife and the very occasional (maybe 3 times an hour, tops) car slowly driving down the road.
Second time here loves it
Great time as before
