Not only is the property beautiful, The Gated Community has a 1 mi. easy drive up the mountain. (2450 altitude). Let the wrap around deck welcome you into this spacious 2+ bedroom 2 1/2 bath that also boasts a Kids Kave in lower level so Mom & Dad can have some relaxation and kids can play.
The home entry has a handicap access ramp OR 4 steps. Each side has a wrought iron decorated gate to keep kids or dogs on the deck. Enjoy the long range view of Franklin & Highlands mountains, All the view is of National Forest, not other homes. We have the Largest lot on Glory Mountain with plenty of room for your boat or RV to turn around. All yard is rocked (no mowing or messy red clay). Back yard is fenced for your pets.
This Open floor plan on the main floor has a beautiful living room with 24 ft pine ceilings, chalet windows and french doors to enjoy the magnificent view. The cozy rock-gas fireplace is so convenient ( no dirty firewood to handle). Across the room is a gourmet kitchen with high quality black whirlpool appliances. The matching rock island and glass cooktop is immaculate and a good center of attention.

Also on the main floor is a dining room, powder/laundry room and the Master Bedroom with the most comfortable King size bed , plenty of closet space and a large bathroom with a walk in shower and 2 sinks.
Upstairs is a large, private, loft /bedroom that overlooks the entire great room below, but still offers plenty of privacy for people staying up there. It has the most beautiful views thru the chalet windows you've ever seen. (see my sunrise photo). There is a LOG queen bed, and a sleeper sofa . An electric fireplace inside the log armoire. The spacious bathroom with tub and shower.. Sitting at the massive Log desk drinking your morning coffee, watching the sunrise. makes this a favorite room in the house..
The bottom level has been knick named Kids Kave.(3rd BR) It's bright and cheerful down stairs with french doors to the outside and with a view..The Kids Kave may be too cold to sleep comfortably in Winter. I would prefer everyone sleep upstairs during the colder months. It has 2 heater vents, & a portable electric heater, because when the fireplace is used, it warms the top 2 levels which keeps the central heat from working.
The house also includes Satellite WIRELESS internet, so bring your laptop. Direct TV, Trane Heat pump & air. A whole house automatic generator in case of power outage.
The dining table has 6 chairs & 2 leaves. Room for 2 extra chairs you will find down stairs. Living room seats 6 comfortably to watch the flatscreen tv. There are books to read, or cd's to watch. Movie rental at Ingles. NO NETFLIX with limited satellite internet.*
The best place is sitting on the deck overlooking the beautiful, relaxing view. Table and chairs under the umbrella on deck also is very inviting to eat out there. Grill is new 2016.

My husband Jerry & I used to take vacation to various parts of the Smoky Mountains every year.. In 1996 we found this lot and view. We knew at once ''this is IT''. We bought the lot and waited till we got old enough to retire. Jerry retired from Publix warehouse in Lakeland and I retired from owning 2 hair salons and a wedding consultation/ cake business. We sold house and everything, moved here, built our chalet log cabin of our dreams. We really enjoyed living here for 5 yr. till Jerry, a disabled Viet Nam veteran, died in Oct. 2010 at the Asheville VA Hospital. Although I absolutely love my home, I feel I need to be closer to my family in Florida now. I hope you will love this home even 1/2 as much as I do.
Helen Hughes purchased this cabin in 2005
Bryson City has so much 'water', so much entertainment for kids of all ages to enjoy. We built this as our home, but now I will be renting or selling it for others to enjoy.

This cabin is very spacious, immaculate inside & outside. The view of the mountains was breathtaking. We had everything we needed & more. I would recommend staying at this cabin if you want a mountain home experience, but close enough to town for convience.
We could not have been happier the house was wonderful spotlessly clean with so many extras above and beyond what we expected. The view from the deck and upstairs loft was spectacular and the house was beautifully furnished we had a great visit and would definitely stay at Glory Mountain Sunrise again! Thank you Helen for making your wonderful home available.
The home was everything as promised....felt like a home away from home. Just added the food and the sounds of excitement and laughter to make it a trip to remember. Great location. Fabulous views! Wish we could have stayed longer!
My husband and 2 dogs had a wonderful time. The cabin was beautiful and clean. The furniture was comfortable and the views were magnificent. Would definitely stay again!
this was our 3rd trip to Glory Mountain & it was wonderful as always-house is beautiful & spotless-fenced in yard for our dog is icing on the cake! She loves the doggy-door! You do not need to travel to enjoy the mountains-they are just beyond the deck-even tho it rained for 2 of our 3 days, the view was spectacular-ever changing. Hopefully we can make it back again in the spring-feels like coming home! Thank you Helen for sharing your beautiful home-Vicky & Melvin
A beautiful secluded and very private home! Nicely decorated home with all the modern conveniences. Peace and quite with magnificent views is your desire, couldn't ask for better! Be sure and get your groceries before going up the mountain b/c you don't just drive to get something you forgot. Great living spot! Bryson City is a great mountain town! We enjoyed the train ride and visit!
