Renewing Body and Soul in the Woods.
Renewing Body and Soul in the Woods.
As you travel a lovely winding paved road along side a running creek, via auto or motorcycle, you will be inspired by the views and the tranquility of the area. You will pass farm animals along the way and as you near the property and glance to the right you may be greeted by handsome horses and if you are lucky may catch deer grazing in the meadow. Pulling into Rose Manor I was warmly greeted by Owner, Linda and immediately felt my body relax and unwind as I took in the essence of Rose Manor. Every window displayed colorful views of the surrounding woods. Carefully cleaned rooms,sweet smelling sheets, warm blankets and all the little amenities and attention to details, would make any guest feel contented and cared for. The area provides so many things to do and also the peaceful space to do nothing. I have returned here several times and will always make it one of my favorite destinations. Don't miss this memorable stay.

The cabin is truly beautiful. It's amazing that Linda, the owner, actually built the eco-cabin herself! She is a fascinating and welcoming host. The organic garden is wonderful and Linda sent us home with argula, tomatoes, and carrots for a tasty salad when we arrived back home! We roasted marshmellows on the fire pit under the star-filled sky and enjoyed the sound of the babbling creek. It was an fantastic stay.

In the Trees by the Creek
I arrived to the Smoky Mountains from San Francisco with the desire to get out of the 'big city' and into a more peaceful, natural environment. I immediately felt welcome at the Rose Manor and settled in to my own, private room, complete with a fireplace, bathroom, and kitchen. Everything was cleaner and nicer than I anticipated. From my bedroom window, I can look out toward the beautiful trees surrounding the property. With the windows open, I can hear the lovely birds singing and the relaxing sound of the creek down below. There is also a beautiful eco-friendly cabin where larger groups of travelers can stay. Hiking trails begin from the driveway and the Smoky Mountain National Park and Nantahala are a short drive away. There is an organic garden which generously provides me with delicious vegetables to cook with. I can highly recommend this property for anyone looking to get back to nature and enjoy the peace and beauty of the Smoky Mountains. I'm still here and I don't want to leave ! :)

What a pleasure to finally have a vacation rental that far exceeded our expectations. I have a family of five plus my parents joined us to vacation in the smokey mountains. The accommodations were excellent. The apartment was clean, private and had all the experience of a eco resort. Linda was amazing and made us feel very welcomed. It was like staying in our own home. We stayed during 4th of July weekend and the rates were very fair. I would have expected to pay much more for what we experienced. We will be back and if your smart and want to get away for a relaxing vacation you would take your family.

Our family stayed here for two nights and three days, we had an awesome time!! The Eco cabin was very comfortable, clean, and super relaxing!! Definitely the place if you are looking to unwind and getaway from stress. We travelled with three kids ages 12, 10, 7 and my in-laws. Plenty of stuff to do, the kids caught our dinner!! We went trout fishing and the boys were very proud to serve the whole family what they caught :) We went tubing, saw great fireworks and went to the Highlands. Very scenic, peaceful, beautiful place for nature lovers and families. Landlord is very accommodating, sweet, and extremely knowledgeable about organic farming- super cool!!

This is a beautiful place to come and relax with nature all around. It is conveniently located on paved roads, but with hiking right from the property. The large rooms were very clean and well-maintained. The kitchens were fully stocked just like at home. We came to relax and didn't try out all the many area attractions, but we hear they are plentiful and easy to get to. The owner will meet you and is very accommodating. This is a great spot to bring a group with several different sleeping areas and kitchens available. There are also outdoor seating areas.

Why the Owner Chose Bryson City:
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???
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
