About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)


Our luxury log home, only three miles from downtown Bryson City, North Carolina features over 2800 square feet of spacious living. The furnishings are upscale and the amenities are numerous. We have done our best to make this your home away from home.

Located on a quiet mountain ridge with beautiful mountain views, Sophie’s Choice is naturally landscaped with a groomed, flat side yard for playing or simply relaxing. Yard includes a firepit and horseshoes. Leather furniture, hardwood floors, granite/travertine countertops, and log-wall interior are just some of the ways that we have brought the outdoors in to truly make this your dream mountain get-away.

The large great room has a leather sofa, 2 leather chairs and large leather ottoman that face a gorgeous hand-crafted stone gas fireplace with flat screen TV over head and high definition satellite. It has three sets of French doors that open onto the expansive deck where you’ll find Adirondack chairs and a hot tub for gathering, watching the beautiful sunrise, enjoying the mountain view, or stargazing in the evening.

This spacious living/dining area features a slate pool table for your entertainment and a dining table that seats eight with additional bar counter seating for two.

Your kitchen is appointed with granite countertops and all new appliances including refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster. We also provide you with all of the dishes, utensils and pots & pans that you’ll need. A gas grill is also provided and a spacious mud room houses a full sized washer & dryer for your convenience.

The great room has a cathedral ceiling and beautiful staircase that leads to the bedrooms and bath upstairs. The upstairs level has an open hallway that overlooks the great room. The two upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom that features a large old-world style vanity and Jacuzzi tub with shower.

To accommodate your sleeping needs, our 3 bedroom/2.5 bath log cabin has been designed to help you relax and get a restful night’s sleep in one of our comfortable pillow-top beds with all-cotton linens, feather down pillows and luxurious décor.

The large master suite is down a short hallway off of the great room. It has a king-size bed, large walk-in closet and private bath featuring a travertine vanity, Jacuzzi tub and separate tiled shower. French doors open to the deck, only steps away from the hot tub. A small sitting area has been created with two stylish, comfortable chairs and a TV entertainment center housing a CD/DVD player and high definition satellite.

Upstairs, bedroom 2 features wooden French doors opening to a spacious room with a beautifully ornate queen-size sleigh bed, matching nightstand and walk-in closet. Bedroom 3 has been designed as another private bedroom or for all of the “extra sleepers”. It features two queen-size beds and a futon couch that can fold out for additional sleeping.

Perfect cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough great things about this cabin and the owners. My family and I stayed this past weekend (6 adults & 4 kids) to celebrate our family Christmas and ride the Polar Express. The cabin itself was perfect. Very clean, the perfect size for our group, great flat yard area for the kids, hot tub and gas fireplace worked easily, and it couldn’t have been more convenient to the Train Depot and grocery store. The owners even had a Christmas tree up which was a really nice touch. What really made our stay so great was how much the owners went above and beyond for us. We were fortunate enough to be at the cabin when a “surprise” snow storm rolled in which couldn’t have been more beautiful and really made our trip. But unfortunately, part of our group hadnt arrived yet when the snow really started coming down. Their car slid in the snow just down the road from the cabin and they ended up stuck in a ditch. We called a number of tow trucks but all of which were either too busy or had to call it quits bc they weren’t having any luck. I hesitated slightly but decided to call Steven, the owner, just in case he happened to know of anyone else to call. He ended up coming out himself and used his truck to pull them out of the ditch. He later came up with his tractor and scrapped the snow from the driveway and laid salt. He didn’t have to take time out of his day to help us but he did without hesitation and we couldn’t have been more thankful.

We will definitely rent this cabin again!

Our family highly recommends Sophie's Choice. Location was perfect for everything we had planned. The cabin is cozy, comfortable, inviting...all we could ask for plus more. The owners are very responsive & caring. Thank you for sharing your mountain home with us.

Perfect spot

  • 4 of 5

Four fly fishing buddies enjoyed the house for three nights. Perfect spot to relax after a long day on the water. We made great use of the fire pit to sip bourbon and swap lies. House was ideal. Large open spaces where we could rig our gear each morning and a nice sized kitchen for cooking. We will certainly consider it again on our next trip.

I only gave it four stars because it would have been ideal had it been on the river. Even so, it was pretty convenient to Bryson City.

Sophia’s Place was amazing

  • 5 of 5

Great large home, plenty of space and great views. Great location in regards to the Great Smoky Railroad and downtown Bryson City. Ingles grocery store was right around the corner. House was updated and super clean. Jacuzzi was a bit small, but still nice.

Only negative I had was two housekeeping items.

You are required to take your trash with you and checkout is at 10 am. We checked out on Sunday and the dump isn’t open till 1. We had to ride back home with our car full of trash until we found a dumpster.....My suggestion would be for checkouts on Sunday, guests should be able to bag the trash and leave it for house cleaning.

We were supposed to have one thing of washing detergent. We went to wash our clothes the night before and realized we didn’t get that either. We had small kids, so we weren’t able to leave and get any. Would have wished housekeeping had left us the detergent.

But still couldn’t leave this house with less than five stars. We enjoyed our family time there!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that y'all enjoyed your stay at the cabin! We are so sorry you had to travel with your trash. The local dump just changed their hours and don't open until 1:00pm on Sundays. We greatly appreciate your feedback because we checked into this and now are able to make other arrangements for Sunday check-outs. The cabin does not provide washing detergent for the laundry ~ it only provides washing detergent for the dishwasher. We do apologize for this misunderstanding. Thank you again & Happy Holidays!!
