About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-11)


This dramatic custom designed home is situated at above 3000 feet elevation, it overlooks a rushing creek, and a small waterfall, both situated on the property. You can access the creek from the stairs cut into the hillside, or just sit on the terrace above the falls. The large back deck is situated above the road, and gives a panoramic view of the treetops. The firepit is perfect for an evening marshmellow roast. The creek is suitable for wading, and the melody of the rushing water provides for many a relaxing afternoon. There is an area suitable for swimming and sliding less than 2 miles from the house.

The back deck is ideal for outdoor dining, or just relaxing after a busy day. Our guests often comment that while we are a little out of the way, the peace and quiet and serenity at the end of the day is well worth it.

The home is ideally situated. We are 7 miles off of the Smokey Mountain Expressway, which provides easy access to many attractions. Some local attractions include Nantahala Rafting, Zip lining, Deep Creek Tubing, Great Smoky Mountain RR, Great Smokey Mountains National Park, Lake Fontana, Bryson City, Cherokee, Dillsboro, Sylva, Waynesville, and Maggie Valley. Other destinations within 1 to 2 hours drive, including Pigeon Forge, TN, Gatilinburg, TN, and Ashville, NC.

About Linda Carter

We are Kenny and Linda Carter from Crawfordville, Florida. We love to travel whenever we get the chance.

Linda Carter purchased this house in 2005

Why Linda Carter chose Bryson City Area

The sound of the waterfall is what sold us on this vacation home, It is quiet & secluded, and the melody of the water can be heard in the bedrooms,

The Bryson City location is central to many activities.

What makes this house unique

This home was a custom designed home. It has slate floors in the foyer & kitchen, tile floors in the baths. There is rustic wood paneling and catherdral ceilings in the livingroom. Most of our guests comment on how restful it is, and everyone enjoys the creek & falls.

The waterfall sounds gave us the best sleep I can remember. We slept with the screen door open every night off the upper deck.

Beautiful scenary

  • 3 of 5

Great place to stay if you don't miss the comforts of modern technology. You cannot beat the view and the sound of the falls is like the best therapy ever! Power went out for about 9 hours which meant no water in the toilet or no phone at the cabin. We had to drive back out about 8 miles to get a cell phone signal to even see who we needed to call. We ended up not being able to get showers or food before we went out for the day. This was no one's fault, just the bad luck of having a tree fall on the powerlines.

The cabin itself was so nice and cozy! Well stocked with the basic supplies and very clean and well kept! Loved that part!

Thanks to the Carter's for allowing us to stay and for helping with our power company question.

Wonderful place up on the mountain

  • 4 of 5

This is very peaceful and pleasant place to spend some time. We only stayed for a few days and wish we had longer. Although smaller than expected the babbling creek on property is nice. Waterfall sound was lovely at night as you can hear it from bedroom with doors open The house has everything needed to feel at home. It is very spacious and could easily house more people comfortably but also was nice and cozy for just the two of us and our dog. We only used master bed , kitchen , living room and outside porches Not utilizing the other bedroom or large den area. This house could easily be big enough for six adults. We really enjoyed deck, yard, cooking out on charcoal grill and hopping rocks in creek which I was able to enjoy with my dog. It is nice to have a pet friendly rental. Area very close to things once you come down the mountain...It is a good ways about 20 min to get up to cabin from turn off. We explored Bryson City, Cherokee and surrounding areas in daytime and made sure we were back up to cabin by dark because I prefer not to drive mountainous roads at night. Very quite except for occasional cars riding up the mountain past the house. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in area and don't mind a scenic drive home everyday.

Relaxing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is clean and cozy, not overly fancy. All the necessities are provided, along with some extras, like condiments in the fridge, coffee, and shampoo. It was very comfortable for 6 people. It can sleep more on the pullout couches if needed. Bring some charcoal if you want to grill. It is a pretty area, but know that it's 15 minutes to the grocery store. It's not close to all the touristy places, but there is tubing, kayaking, ziplining, etc. close by. The creek and waterfall are lovely. The kids and dog enjoyed splashing around. We wanted a quiet, relaxing vacation, so this was perfect!
