Bryson City house description

Our home is situated at about a 3200 feet elevation. Our yard backs up to National Forest land and Queens Lake, which is said to be one of the cleanest and quietest in WNC, is directly in front of us. The lake is stocked with trout. It’s perfect for canoeing, fishing, and swimming (no jet-skis or motor boats!). While a boat put-in is directly in front of our house, the jumping off and fishing dock is down the road. Also down our road is a forest road that leads down to route 74. When it’s open, this is the short cut to the NOC and all points East. When it’s closed, it’s a lovely hike with waterfalls, mountain vistas and rock faces. Winding Stairs road was built and named in the late 1800s by the residents of Nantahala to improve their access to goods and services. To build the road, they used dynamite to blast out the sides of the mountain.

Day activities include walking, hiking, biking along the lake and down the forest road, swimming and boating, and fishing in the lake and at nearby rivers, streams and at nearby Otter Creek trout farm. We are close to several trail heads, waterfalls and rivers. We are also close to the NOC and other rafting and outdoor adventure outfitters. If you choose to venture farther away, easy day trips are to Bryson City, Cherokee and Franklin.

Our house has extensive covered porch area - useful for enjoying the outdoors in case of rain - and a nice grassy lawn area. We have a lower porch down the yard with its own grill closer to the lake which is a perfect place for drinks or lunch. We have a fire pit for making Smores or just sitting around. We think our cabin is the perfect mountain escape. The location is extremely peaceful and remote, truly 'away from it all.' We intentionally do not have television so that we can enjoy the many activities of being outdoors and in the mountains. However we do have a Bose iPod dock for playing music. We hope you will enjoy our unique find in the mountains as much as we have.

The house has been remodeled and feels new inside with original hardwood floors throughout. All of the interior furniture is also brand-new.

Sleeping Arrangements: We have 2 bedrooms and a loft sleeping area upstairs, and a futon couch downstairs. The upstairs Master bedroom has a queen size bed, and the guest bedroom has a full size bed. The loft area has a daybed that converts to sleep one or two (full size). The full bath is upstairs.

Home Amenities: We have a fully-stocked kitchen with both a french-press and electric coffee maker, utensils and dinnerware, a dishwasher, gas stove and refrigerator/freezer. There is a wood-stove in the living room that does a great job of warming the house in cold weather, and also electric heating. Though the home does have air-conditioning units, we open up the windows and enjoy the fresh air during the day, and cool air at night. The Master bedroom has its own porch. And finally, we do have a child-proof gate and pack-n-play for families with small children. We do offer sheets and bath towels for our guests' use.

NOC blog link: We wanted to share this blog about the pristine natural beauty of the area. Enjoy! http://nantahalaoutdoorcenter.blogspot.com/2011/07/nantahala-outdoor-center-paradise-in.html

                                  We are situated in the Nantahala Gorge within the Nantahala National Forest. The area is rich in natural beauty with splendid waterfalls, stunning overlooks, and pristine nature. We are located on Queens Creek Lake, a small, quiet, stocked lake perfect for quiet moments fishing, rowboating and swimming in the summer, and are just 10 minutes away from Lake Nantahala with motorboats and more summer fun. We are also within a short drive to the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC), the renowned outfitter and whitewater rafting center. There, you can enjoy guided trips down the Nantahala River, eat at one of their many restaurants, go kayaking, mountain biking, and more. We are near a trout fishing farm, the Nantahala River put-in, an AT trailhead, Wayah Bald, Wesser Bald, the Bartram Trail, fly fishing on the Wayah River, and great hiking and biking right out of our backyard.
