                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: 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 the last 5 yr. till Jerry, a disabled Viet Nam veteran, died in Oct.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.

                          Why the Owner Chose Bryson City:
                          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.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Total RELAXATION, awaits you sitting or eating out on the deck, with such a fabulous view of undisturbed National Forest. At the end of a private 1/4 mi. driveway you have total privacy. A flat gravel yard and a great mountain to hike on. Fire Pit in back yard to roast marshmellows.40 mi. Views of Fall leaves or snow covered mountain tops. Holiday Retreat.3 phones in home with free long distance, and SATELITE WIFI INTERNET, and TV. Exquisite mountain furniture and décor.
