Property description

The Lodge is located in the middle of the Nantahala National Forest. If you are looking for a rental in town this is not the one. If you are looking for beautiful accommodations in a one of a kind setting only a few hundred yards from Fontana Lake and surrounded by over 4000 acres of national forest then this is the only property for you. Wildlife abounds. The Wilderness (Flat Branch) public boat ramp is less than a half mile away. Access to the property is through a locked large iron gate a quarter mile into the Nantahala National Forest with views of the Smoky Mountain National Park across Fontana Lake. Property has monitored security system.

The Lodge is 3200 square feet and underwent complete renovation within the last year. New stainless steel appliances and granite counters throughout. All new pillow top beds. Three bedrooms: king bed, queen bed, bunk bed (with full size lower bunk). Front loading washer and dryer. All linens provided. Cabin is equipped with wireless high speed internet, Direct TV, two blue ray DVD players and a DVD library.

There are two rushing creeks on the property that you can see and hear from any of the three porches. On summer nights sleep to the sound of the creeks through an open window. Hiking trails abound a few minutes walk from the property on adjacent forest land, providing magnificent views of Fontana Lake and the Smoky Mountain National Park.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Our family has been coming to the Smoky Mountains for vacations for the past ten years and finally decided to purchase our own mountain get away last year. After a complete renovation, it is perfect for rest, relaxation and comfort. We hope you will choose to enjoy the Lodge at Bear Creek Cove too.

Why the Owner Chose Bryson City:
This is one of the only rental properties so close to Fontana Lake. It is within a 1/2 mile of a public boat ramp but one that is in a more secluded section of the lake. No other home in the area is so close to the lake and surrounded by 4000 acres of USFS land. Staying at the Lodge is like camping in your own forest with all the amenities of a five star hotel.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Ski boat rental available for $700 for the week plus gas refill at end of use. Must have previous boating experience and waiver required. Only full week rentals available.
