Why Thurman & Freddie Breedlove chose Bryson City

This rental was built by the owner Thurman Breedlove. It was a labor of love! It is cozy and comfortable and Thurman’s creativity is everywhere from his award winning art work to his custom made furniture.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In my wildest day-dreams of some day owning my own "cabin in the woods" did I ever imagine a place as wonderful as this! The craftsmanship and the attention to detail are astounding.Thurman is an artist with the eye of an architect and the heart of a wood-crafter & painter. In short, Poplar Lodge is PERFECT. We enjoyed the remoteness of the cabin, the privacy, the "home feel, but also how close it was to Bryson City, Sylva and even to Dollywood where we drove to twice.

A peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time with the family. Is a perfect getaway if you like to sleep in a peaceful calm place. Don't we all? I would recommend this place to every one. The hot tub was the best part and had a great fire place as well.

Very private and cozy.

We really enjoyed our stay. It's owner operated, so it has tons of personal touches and any thing you may need. The handmade furniture by Mr. Breedlove is absolutely beautiful!

Wonderful cabin, in a great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is so beautiful, the fireplace and woodwork in the cabin is awesome. The cabin is convenient to both Bryson City and the NOC, each only about 10-15 min drive. The cabin is very peaceful with all of the amenities of a larger cabin. There is another cabin not far away, a little ways up the drive, but still felt very secluded and private, we didn't even see the cabin with the lush trees and forest. The owners were so nice and checked in with us after a bad storm to ensure we had power and that everything was OK. We would definitely stay in this cabin again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Don't look any further for a place to stay. This cabin is a home. The love and work that was put into this cabin is just beautiful. Nice and quite, and close to everything. The owners are so friendly. Were there to answer any questions that we had. Thank you very much. The Minzeys and Woolmans

We couldn't ask for anything better!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin for 3 nights and left longing for more nights to enjoy this little slice of Heaven! My family had so much fun here. The cabin was beautiful and the views were too. The views of the stars from the hot tub were so magical! The kids loved playing with the games that were there. The cabin was spacious, with plenty of room for our 4 kids. The beds were comfy and the showers were hot. We can't wait to go back!!!

Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

We needed the experience this beautiful cabin gave so bad! It was exactly what me and my family needed. Private, excluding the cabin to the right of the deck up a hill, but with enough space that I didn't feel that they were right on top of us. Other than that, we had complete seclusion. You can see the mountains off of the deck and so many birds to listen to in the morning and peaceful and relaxing at night. All the Breedloves are so very accommodating and helpful! The cabin was clean and ready for us when we arrived, including the Jacuzzi tub which was amazing and can be made hotter or colder to suit your preference. The kitchen is stocked with every appliance needed, crockpot, blender, toaster, coffee maker, microwave. The cabin is so close to everything that you don't even have to use the kitchen if you don't want to, but if you do, make sure all ingredients and spices to make your desired meals are purchased. We wanted to keep room in the car and did all of our grocery shopping at Ingles which was a short 10-15 minute drive. There are TVs in all bedrooms if you want some alone time or wanting to watch different things. I especially loved that the second floor was closed off and private. Both bedrooms have a private full bath and comfortable beds. The location of the cabin is a short drive to any convenience, shopping, restaurants and other activities. There is a river that you drive along to get to the cabin, it has it's own entrance to the river where you can drive right down and park and explore or fish. My daughter loved playing there and at the cabin and had enough puzzles, games and books to entertain her and us. This trip was such a relaxing and healing time for all of us. We loved every minute. Would definitely stay here again and have already recommended the cabin to others.

Snow Tubing is 38 miles from cabin and a great family fun experience. Deep Creek is a beautiful place to take walk and enjoy waterfalls and do some photography. Tubing in the summer is a must.
