About Angela Mason

My husband of 26 years & 3 daughters are originally from Michigan. We currently reside in Florida on the Gulf of Mexico. We enjoy traveling and can appreciate what a traveler is looking for. We have traveled the entire US, Mexico, Canada, Greece (mainland)Athens, Delphi, Olymipia, Thessolinki, Kalambaka & the Greek Islands of Mykonos, Santorini, Crete.

Angela Mason purchased this house in 2001

Why Angela Mason chose Smoky Mountains

We absolutely love the mountains & nature at it's best! Many of the attractions are located nearby. We enjoy hiking, going to the casino, window shopping, looking at the antiques, & going to the auction on Friday's.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the peace & quiet on the 4 acres. You can hear the relaxing water from the creek as you enjoy a homecooked breakfast or lunch on the porch. Also, there is entertainment from the hummingbirds that come to visit the hummingbird feeder located on front porch. We've even placed beach chairs in the creek or better yet, just sit right in the cold creek to cool off from the summer temperature.

We can go into town & do antiquing, shopping. Also, Blue Ridge Parkway entrance is approx. 20 minutes away. We make a picnic breakfast or lunch & enjoy picnicing in the Parkway.

When you want to go on the wild side, there is tubing in Bryson City (nearby) & rafting at nearby Nantahala. Also, Cherokee's Harah's Casino can be an adventure too with free coffee & soda as you play the nickle/dime slots.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from our wonderful vacation in the mountains. Your place is lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We'll be sure to recommend it to anyone we know who's going to the area.



Thank you again,

Sylva Hideaway

The house was exactly as advertised. The layout was great for our purpose. The Tennessee porch was even better than the pictures made it look

Awesome Place for Good fun

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with Friends for a Weekend out with the fellas. It was everything we wanted. Spent 0 time watching tv or on cell phones and walked around and enjoyed the time in the mountains. Much more secluded than we originally thought which was a great thing! Has western carolina for random sports games, Cherokee for casino and fishing, and good surrounding towns for shopping and nightlife.. Diamond of a location!

It was fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house was equipped with everything we needed for our mountain weekend getaway. It was also close to WCU for visiting our girls at a football game. Will definitely stay again here in the future.

The property was beautiful but it was very remote.

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and surrounding hillside lovely. At night sitting in rocking chair on front porch was so peaceful. Saw a couple wild turkey and big owl. The property was more remote than realized and tucked back into the hills. It was a reasonable drive time to the areas we wanted to visit. Would consider staying again should we go back to that area.
