About Linda

Owner, Linda Collie is an ECO consultant Realtor, for background info view web site CollieRealty I accept VISA & Master Card.

Why Linda chose Bryson City Area

Be Connected to Your Environment, Be Green..

So many sustainable principles went into building Smoky Mountain Rose Manor Vacation property. Since conceived in 1975, when an artist family who was “into” health foods and organic gardening decided to build an environmentally friendly residence, the property has been looked at through eco-conscious eyes.

Preserving trees that provide valuable shading during the summer months, composting, and non toxic & biodegradable soaps and cleaners are utilized with eco system protection in mind. When new buildings were constructed using renewable materials there was negligible home site disruption. There was controlled demolition of two existing shed buildings with the recovered materials reused. Very low level or zero chemical contaminants were released during construction by using solvent-free adhesives, zero VOC paint and ‘GreenSeries for green building’ products and use of materials that do not off-gas harmful emissions.

No chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides have been used on property. Natural resources have been conserved, generating less waste by using recycled products such as recycled plastic lumber for decking, salvaged materials, certified forest products, compact fluorescent bulbs, low flow water fittings, and rainwater harvested for plantings. Proper window & skylight placement for natural ventilation for day lighting and fresh air along with HEPA/high efficiency particular air filters are used as a sustainable strategy.

Insulation in main house is formaldehyde-free and in Eco home insulation is spray soy based for energy efficiency.

Clean air burning wood stove in Eco cabin but hasn’t been used, no need for a heat pump. Solar is not an option at this time as houses are nestled in tall trees. Occupants have low-impact lifestyles by being organic and vegan and non-smoking. Did you know that by just turning the tap off while brushing your teeth you can save 8 gallons of water per???

What makes this house unique

This property and the NEW ECO CABIN are Environmentally Friendly!!!

This Property is ONLY offered to Non-Smokers, NO Dogs ( although I love animals, a stray flea would have to be chemically treated which is not possible as this is a CHEMICAL-FREE property! )

This property is offered only limited times May thru Oct., so if you are lucky enough to book a weekend or week you will enjoy a clean peaceful atmosphere in the middle of nature with TALL TREES and a CREEK.

L. Leigh Sealy from GA states “Smoky Mountain Paradise” I had an incredible stay at Rose Manor in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of NC. Each morning was more gorgeous than the last and the eco-cabin afforded me an incredible view. Linda made me feel like family and made sure I had every last thing I could need to insure a comfortable and relaxing stay. The cabin itself was so neat- it was like a giant tree house that rose up out of the side of a mountain. It was both spacious and yet extremely practical with its use of space. It was filled with interesting books and puzzle games. Linda knows a lot about eco-friendly living! I enjoyed exploring the rose gardens & the beginnings of an incredible organic fruit and veggie garden. There is also a rushing stream on the property that you can hear from your bedroom! I also recommend taking walks at sunset down the scenic country roads & be sure to stop & watch animals. I recommend Rose Manor to anyone looking to get away to the mountains and back to the earth!

****"Very nice place to stay. Quiet, clean, everything you need, and the Owner is very helpful. I will be coming back with the family".*****

"What a Gem of a place! Mrs. Linda was as hospitable and welcoming as any property owner could ever be! Myself and two children (Ages 7 & 5) couldn't bring ourselves to leave the Eco Cabin as it was full of surprises to explore.We just enjoyed the simplicity and stillness that the mountains have to offer..."

Quiet, secluded, lovely place

  • 5 of 5

The Eco cabin & lower floor of house were very spacious & the owner gave us free rein of the place. The main road in & out is a motorcyclists' dream with 101 turns in about 4 miles. We had a great stay in the Smokies!

Strongly Recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented a lot of VRBO homes over the years, in a lot of different States, and a lot of different Countries too. Linda was by far the most gracious host we've ever encountered.

We took our 14 year old son, along with some of his friends, and their parents to Bryson City for some trout fishing, hiking, sight seeing, train riding, and white water rafting.

Linda's property was easy to find; very clean, teen friendly, multi-family accommodating, and located in a scenic setting. She went out of her way to make sure our visit went well. She even pointed out where the local's "honey hole" fishing locations were located.

If you're ever planning a vacation in the smokey mountains, we strongly recommend renting Linda's property!!!

Mountain Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We had an Amazing time enjoying the property (which was extremely clean) and its surroundings. Linda (property owner) was more than helpful and quick to respond with any questions and infact went out of her way to help our group find fun activities that we wanted to do. I highly recommend this property and enjoy the Amazing Eco-Cabin that Linda designed and constructed. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend. When we returned one of the guests contacted realizing he left some personal belongings at the cabin. Linda found them and mailed them to him without hesitation. AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!

HD Bikers Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Eight men (7 bikes & 1 truck) headed to the NC/TN mountains for a 4-day getaway in search of great riding. We needed lodging for up to 10 and was lucky to find Linda's rentals. Linda was great in providing insight to the Rose Manor and Eco Cabin accommodations during our phone conversations. Linda made the scheduling really easy and was there to welcome us when we arrived. Linda provided enough bedding options that every guy had their own bed with a couple to spare. There are 3-4 King/Full/Double beds and a few twins spread around in different places if you need more. The highlight of the location is the fire pit and grill setup down the stone stairs from the lodging. We cooked out there 2 of 3 nights and talked, joked, laughed, and lied to each other until after midnight each evening. Although the driveway is grass/gravel it was very solid and we all drove up and parked next to the house. Another highlight for bikers is Linda's place is just off Hwy 28 so you get at least 5 miles of twisty road riding every time you leave from and come to the lodging. We were able to ride through the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, ride the Tail of the Dragon (US 129), and visit the Wheels Through Time motorcycle museum in Maggy Valley, this is a must for any motorcycle enthusiast. Everywhere you go provided a wonderful view, great roads, and friendly people.

I found NIRVANA!

  • 5 of 5

Setting up the rental was easy enough and the owner responded quickly with detailed information. Linda has a very keen sense and will help you rent appropriate lodging with a little info, this was greatly appreciated! Directions to Rose Manor were very accurate and finding it was very easy! Upon arriving, Linda introduced herself, walked me through the rental and shared any and all info I needed to know. She also is a gracious host and will guide you to some local places that you wouldn't find on your own, that make the stay extra special! She also has an uncanny ability to give you just what you need, as I arrived in great pain from a Fibromyalgia flare up, which she eased with a Kemp seed drink, that I accepted without hesitation. We discussed many things that might help me and after 12 years of no help from physicians, Linda cured a debilitating ailment, that I am still free of 3 days later! This goes beyond any expectation I could have ever asked for! I find her to be an accepting, open and very inspirational woman who is very humble, with a knowledge base of organic foods and healthy living, like no other! She is happy to share her time with you or let you spend your time quietly, absorbing the wonderful atmosphere Rose Manor emits. Be sure to visit all areas of the grounds, for they offer observing wildlife, butterflies, the calming sway of the trees and the beautiful gardens all around. I anxiously await my next visit, as soon as I have vacation time to come back! I've stayed in dozens of places in my life, but none leave the memory that I keep for myself, that Rose Manor and Linda gave me. I came as a guest and left a friend, thank you Linda, can't wait to visit again!

"I Don't Think We're in Kansas Any More Toto!"

  • 5 of 5

My good friend and I take a long motorcyle ride each year from Kansas and this year we brought his younger son with us to North Carolina. We stayed three nights in the cabin at Rose Manor and it is a spectacular property and location.

The photos on this site give one a good feel for the place, but in person, it is so much more impressive. The lower level creek, garden, and fire pit sitting area are great for quiet get-aways or group conversation alike. Likewise, the upper level decks and sitting areas are an open invitation to admire the surrounding beauty and enjoy good company.

Being motorcyclists, location was very important and Rose Manor places the rider amidst one of the richest treasure troves of riding opportunities available anywhere in the US. Within a fifty mile radius of Rose Manor, we found some of the most challenging and/or scenic rides we have ever ridden. The best-known rides include Dragon's Tail, Cherhola Skyway, and Blue Ridge Parkway...but there are countless lesser known, even unnamed rides, that are more than memorable. Our favorite one was a shorter run on Hwy 28 from Franklin south to Highlands...great curves, pavement surface and pitching, plus a beautiful photo-op at Bridal Veil Falls.

Just prior to our trip, my friend, our wives and I saw James Taylor in concert (Wichita) and "Carolina on My Mind" rings especially true now that we've sampled The Great Smoky Mountains and surrounding areas of southeastern NC. Our stay at Rose Manor couldn't have been better and we'll be looking for the opportunity to return again to enjoy more of the Carolinas and the special nuances of Linda's place and southern hospitality.
