Bryson City cottage description

Spend the mornings sipping your coffee on one of the porch swings while watching the hummingbirds dance their fanciful dance. A small, spring-fed creek provides a restful babble as it flows beside the master bedroom and the porch. During the day, there are streams to fish and swim in, trails to hike and water falls to discover. At night, the stars are right there ready to be plucked from the sky, and the slot machines at the casino are ready to be played. No matter what the time of day, or what the weather, there is always something to do. Even if it is just sitting back on the porch again, watching the view change.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We are healthcare professionals who have spent our careers taking care of sick infants and children, in Florida. We have 3 children, and 6 grandchildren who have all shared the mountains with us. We are now empty-nesters, rounding into retirement, and trying to figure out what the next phase of our lives will be.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bryson City:
                  We started coming to the area 15 years ago, when the kids were small. We love playing on the raging rivers, most of all. Dean even became a rafting guide for NOC, 5 years ago. We live in Florida, but plan on spending our summers in the mountains as soon as we can. While we love Florida, nothing can beat a summer in the mountains.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  For outdoor enthusiasts, this location cannot be beat. Whitewater, hiking, mountain biking, boating, waterfall seeking, ziplining, horseback riding are all nearby, in many forms. After days of adventure, or shopping for antiques, this house offers the best place for a quiet evening, watching the sunset with friends and family.
