A special message from owners, Ty and Sandy Nelson.. We purchased Log Heaven brand new in 2001 and it was love at first sight! Ty and I are originally from Chicago and the thought of owning a log cabin in the Smoky Mountains excited us beyond belief. The beautiful country heart pine wood floors, tongue and groove log interior, green metal roof and the enormous 25' vaulted ceiling with huge exposed beams took our breathe away.
We bought our log heaven for all the folks out there just like us who would love to experience a log home ... and appreciate the privacy ... tucked back in the woods ... with only nature and wildlife for neighbors..... Adventuresome adults, honeymooners, those celebrating second honeymoons, anniversaries, birthdays and all the other special occasions...especially love our privacy and beautifully landscaped setting. A Log Heaven is perfect for a couples getaway...romantic and secluded! It's also perfect for a girlfriends getaway...so many things to do...and that's without leaving the cabin!
Located only a few minutes from Bryson City, we offer a great location...(we think the best location of all)... right in the midst of everything ... an easily accessible road (that means you don't have to drive a 4-wheel drive vehicle), a driveway we've just paved, wonderful views that you will fall in love with, and nature and seclusion at its best... Recent guests were thrilled to discover deer in our back yard!!
With a large great room that has a 25' vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, an open floor plan, two bedrooms plus a large sleeping loft with French doors to a Juliet balcony overlooking beautiful sunset views, two bathrooms, a large screened porch and a front covered porch with rockers and swing... (both porches are on the second floor where you will enjoy the wonderful mountain breezes) and because we love games, we have a mini-game room with foosball and electronic darts ...we also have a large hot tub for adults use on our landscaped patio and a wood burning portable fire pit in the back yard.
We are just a few minutes away from Bryson City... known as the 'Outdoor Adventure' capital of the Great Smoky Mountains. Bryson City is a 'real' town...it isn't overrun with tourists, and it has it's own special quaintness and charm. With the terrain, outfitters and guides, Bryson City qualifies as the center of outdoor adventure in the Southeast. For four decades, the Nantahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City has provided rafting, paddling instruction, and supplies to adventurers of all ages.
We are centrally located for all of the Smoky Mountain activities! Bryson City offers unparalleled views, along with miles of hiking and biking trails (hike the Appalachian Trail...it is only 10 minutes from Log Heaven), mountain golf at the Smoky Mountain Country Club and the scenic Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. Nearby Fontana Lake is a beautiful mountain lake where you can swim, fish, and rent a pontoon boat for either half or the entire day.
Also nearby is the Nantahala Outdoor Center for white-water rafting and kayaking, horseback riding, and the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. Some of the most strenuous and scenic mountain biking trails in the east are found in the Tsali Recreation Area near Bryson City, Cherokee (where you can try your luck at Harrah's Casino or go to the wonderful new movie theatre), Gem Mining, and Deep Creek for tubing, hiking, horseback riding and picnics. Western North Carolina is absolutely great for flea-markets and antiquing ...and... maybe best of all, Ingles Supermarket is only minutes away.
Just throw the pressures and stress of your everyday life away, come to the mountains and enjoy unwinding and relaxing ....

What makes Log Heaven such a special vacation home? Well, it is very, very private. You will drive through a beautiful woods (where you will not see another home) to reach it. Yet, it is very easy to find, you don't need a 4-wheel drive vehicle and it is only a few minutes from Ingles (Supermarket) and Bryson City. You will love the porches, one is covered and the other is screened-in or maybe you want to 'hang out' on the patio... the kids (or the young at heart kids) love playing foosball and darts in the mini-game room. Roast marshmallows and tell ghost stores at the portable fire pit in the backyard. You can even sing 'camp' songs because there is so much privacy.

About the owner: We welcome you to our website, Log Heaven in Bryson City, North Carolina. I'm Sandy and my husband is Ty. We would love to have you as guests at our vacation home! Even though we are originally from Chicago, we now live in Columbia, SC. I guess you could say we also live in Bryson City, NC because we spend so much of our time there. We love to hike and the Appalachian Trail and Deep Creek are some of our favorite places. We also love nature and enjoy all the deer, owl, turkey and rabbit sightings on our property. Mostly, we just like to hang out...do some gardening, reading, enjoy our family, play games, and relax in the hot tub.
Why the Owner Chose Bryson City: In 2001, it seemed like a great idea to invest in vacation real estate. We had built Retreat in the Sky, our vacation home, three years previously and we had begun renting it to vacation guests with much success. We searched and searched to find another vacation home that guests would love and take good care of like it was their own... and that would be a good investment for us. When we found Log Heaven, it was exactly what we were looking for.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Log Heaven has so many outdoor spaces sometimes we just don't know where we want to 'be'. Our choices include; a covered front porch, a large screened porch, or...our patio with hot tub. Our location is close to Ingles and the town of Bryson City. We still pinch ourselves that we found the perfect vacation home for us and for our guests!
