About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This three story custom log home is overlooking The Great Smoky Mountain National Park in Bryson City, NC. The cabin features breathtaking short and long range mountain views, a nature trail to the creek and plenty of privacy in this gated community. This log cabin is perched at 2800 feet and has 840 square feet of covered porches. The 12 foot front porch has 2 sets of chairs/rockers, high bar table and chairs and a swing so you can relax on the deck with your loved ones and watch the sun peep up over the mountains or watch it set behind them.

The main floor interior offers a half bath, open kitchen and living area with stainless appliances, granite countertops and a fireplace for those cool evenings. Sit back and watch your favorite show on our 42 inch flatscreen satellite TV/DVD. Local channels are not available. The private spacious master bedroom located upstairs has a king size bed and private bath. There is not a closet upstairs. The downstairs guest quarters features 2 queen size beds and a private room with a full size bed sleeping 6 people comfortably. Enjoy your evening watching a DVD on the 32 inch flatscreen TV/DVD. There is a private bath downstairs along with a washer and dryer.

There are many places to visit here in North Carolina....The Great Smokey Mountain National Park, Great Smokey Mountain Railway Station and Deep Creek Park (where you can hike or go tubing) is 10 minutes away. Tsali Recreation -25 minutes away-is a mountain bikers dream. Cherokee takes 30 minutes, Nantahala Gorge (great for white water rafting) is 30 minutes, Maggie Valley is 45 minutes and a beautiful drive through the park to Gatlinburg, TN is 1 hour away. The Biltmore House and Gardens in Asheville is 1 hour east of the cabin. Your most difficult decision will be whether to stay in or go out each day!

About Joy Hall

My husband and I fell in love with the Western North Carolina Mountains over 10 years ago. We hoped to one day retire and build a log cabin in this area. In 2004, Hurricane Katrina devestated our town and we were out of our house for months. It was then, we decided to start building our DREAM cabin. The cabin is now a 'safe haven' for us from hurricanes!! We have put much time, effort and love into building our dream and now would like to share it with you.

Joy Hall purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Joy Hall chose Bryson City

My husband and I enjoy being outdoors. We first came to this area to go mountain biking at Tsali. Once we realized how many endless things there were to do in this area or within a short drive, we knew we wanted to build our log cabin here. This is the perfect family destination and we look forward to making memories here with our 2 young children.

What makes this cabin unique

There are numberous quaint little towns surrounding Bryson City- Cherokee, Franklin, Cashiers, Highlands, Dillsboro, Sylva and Ashville. We have really enjoyed exploring each town and getting to know the local people.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for making a last minute get-a-way possible. We have been fortunate to travel abroad; however, there is something magical about the mountains of Western NC that makes it our favorite place to come to for true re-CREATION. We have been to many places in the Appalachians and Smokies over the years; however, your cabin may top the list. Words are inadequate to describe the beauty. Very grateful to you for opening what I know is a very special place to you and your family...

Excellent views, kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has outstanding views of the mountains from the enclosed porch on main floor with ample space and seating. There were toys available and children's books for our small children making our packing even lighter. The road to cabin from the paved main road is gravel and has two steeper turns during the climb up to the cabin with did fine with front wheel drive car and front wheel drive light SUV with driving slow during our summer visit. I feel 4 wheel drive would be needed during winter weather. Would stay again!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family completely enjoyed our time in this lovely spot! The cabin is exactly as it appears in the pictures. Everything you need is there and in good working condition. It was lovely to arrive and have all the necessary amenities there and ready to go. This is a great location, close to lots of fun things to do and see. The view is stunning. Sitting on the deck was just an awesome way to start and end the day. The owners are easy to work with, we can't wait to plan another visit.
