This retreat is located at the end of a private road and the porch is a stone's throw from a beautiful fully stocked creek. We have included things which we feel you will appreciate during your stay. The porch and creek are the most inviting. Reading a good book while sitting on the porch is a must. A hot tub as well if you want to relax. Fully stocked Kitchen, linens, and towels provided.

Great Smoky Mountain Railway Depot and Museum just 20 minutes away enjoy an excursion train , Thomas the tank engine train or The Polar Express train. All the excursions are popular

Alarka Creekside Retreat is located in a small valley which contains only 3 total properties and is quite private but only a short distance from the paved road. Although the atmosphere will make you feel much further removed from civilization. Relaxation and Natural Surroundings are the order of things for this area.

Several snow ski areas are within a short drive from this location.

We loved this cabin with the creek and the hot tub!

  • 4 of 5

This was a sweet home with great sounds from the rushing creek outside. Beautiful surroundings and view from hot tub. Close to Bryson City and great location from Polar Express train. The only reason we didn’t rate a five stars was two of our guests were not happy with the pillow choices. But that happens and sometimes we just bring our own! House had everything we needed and was perfect for two small families.

Fly Fishing in the Smokies

  • 4 of 5

We waited a little late to book our trip this year and found most all places were already booked for the October season. then we found this place. it is close to downtown Bryson city and the highway so it was perfect to use as a base to hit all the water around the area, including the Nantahala, Oconoluftee and the tuckaseegee. The house was immaculate and very comfortable. From the looks of things the kitchen and bathrooms have been updated. While we didn't use it there was a nice yard with a fire pit and a trout stocked creek running just outside the front door. My only complaint is that there isn't good cell reception there, but then again there isn't in a lot of places in the area, but we knew that going in.

Welcoming from the moment you arrive...

  • 5 of 5

All was there for us to feel comfortable, safe, peaceful and ready to spend some time slowing down together. So many little touches. All that you could need, but beyond that a feeling of warmth and a place that is easy to call home for a few days ;) Regina is sweet and accommodating and helped us make sure we got the most out of our stay. I think we will return in the summer!

P.s. I saw a post describing the home as a mobile home. I live in fla aka the snow bird capital of the world, and I've been in mobile homes--this place has pine wood walls, a beautiful kitchen, a large spacious floor plan and so many's a cabin and a beautiful one. There's plenty of photos to give you an accurate description... and that's not even touching on the creek side haven it sits on

Very clean, awesome creek side location, very close to town center

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin over the month of December specifically to ride the Polar Express. We had the most wonderful time with our friends. We actually enjoyed our time at the cabin more so than riding on the train! Such a fun location, very well kept home. Regina was amazing to work with and ensured we were comfortable and happy. We plan to return this summer!!!
