The home entry has a handicap access ramp OR 4 steps. Each side has a wrought iron decorated gate to keep kids or dogs on the deck. Enjoy the long range view of Franklin & Highlands mountains, All the view is of National Forest, not other homes. We have the Largest lot on Glory Mountain with plenty of room for your boat or RV to turn around. All yard is rocked (no mowing or messy red clay). Back yard is fenced for your pets.
This Open floor plan on the main floor has a beautiful living room with 24 ft pine ceilings, chalet windows and french doors to enjoy the magnificent view. The cozy rock-gas fireplace is so convenient ( no dirty firewood to handle). Across the room is a gourmet kitchen with high quality black whirlpool appliances. The matching rock island and glass cooktop is immaculate and a good center of attention. With custom curly maple cabinets, knotty pine wood floors, walls and ceiling, you really are in an authentic log cabin. Also on the main floor is a dining room, powder/laundry room and the Master Bedroom with the most comfortable King size bed , plenty of closet space and a large bathroom with a walk in shower and 2 sinks.
Upstairs is a large, private, loft /bedroom that overlooks the entire great room below, but still offers plenty of privacy for people staying up there. It has the most beautiful views thru the chalet windows you've ever seen. (see my sunrise photo). There is a LOG queen bed, and a sleeper sofa . An electric fireplace inside the log armoire. The spacious bathroom with tub and shower.. Sitting at the massive Log desk drinking your morning coffee, watching the sunrise. makes this a favorite room in the house..
The bottom level has been knick named Kids Kave.(3rd BR) It's bright and cheerful down stairs with french doors to the outside and with a view..The Kids Kave may be too cold to sleep comfortably in Winter. I would prefer everyone sleep upstairs during the colder months. It has 2 heater vents, & a portable electric heater, because when the fireplace is used, it warms the top 2 levels which keeps the central heat from working.
The house also includes Satellite WIRELESS internet, so bring your laptop. Direct TV, Trane Heat pump & air. A whole house automatic generator in case of power outage.
The dining table has 6 chairs & 2 leaves. Room for 2 extra chairs you will find down stairs. Living room seats 6 comfortably to watch the flatscreen tv. There are books to read, or cd's to watch. Movie rental at Ingles. NO NETFLIX with limited satellite internet.*
The best place is sitting on the deck overlooking the beautiful, relaxing view. Table and chairs under the umbrella on deck also is very inviting to eat out there. Grill is new 2016.
Our area of Bryson City boasts Fishing, Rafting, Boating, Kyaking, Horseback riding, Biking, Canoeing, Hiking all within 15 min. from home. Little Tenn. River is at base of Glory Mt. for Fly Fishing or get that 30 lb catfish...Fontana Lake is 35 Miles of wonderful fishing, & out of this world views. Launch your boat or rent one at Almond Boat Dock. . The World Famous Nantahala Outdoor Center has been on GMA, and is only 15min away, and has 3 restaurants on site. World Championship rafting competition was there. You will pass Nantahala Village Inn with '13 Moons Restaurant for fine dining.
For Night Life, Try Smoky Mountain Theater of Performing Arts, in Franklin 40 min. down Needmore River Rd. OR There's 2 Harrah's Casino's . 1 in Cherokee & 1 in Murphy with lots of entertainment, and restaurants.
Of course the kids want to go see the Cherokee indians dancing beside the road, and do some shopping. Winter offers Polar Express right here in town. Ski Resort area less than an hr. away with man made snow IF natural snow is not available.
SOOOO MUCH, SOOOO NEAR. Have a wonderful vacation, and I hope to hear from you. This is not just a rental cabin, it's a home away from home. It was my full time home for 5 yr. It's fully furnished & not just an empty rental cabin. You can have fun hiking all over this mountain also.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My husband Jerry & I used to take vacation to various parts of the Smoky Mountains every year.. In 1996 we found this lot and view. We knew at once ''this is IT''. We bought the lot and waited till we got old enough to retire. Jerry retired from Publix warehouse in Lakeland and I retired from owning 2 hair salons and a wedding consultation/ cake business. We sold house and everything, moved here, built our chalet log cabin of our dreams. We really enjoyed living here for 5 yr. till Jerry, a disabled Viet Nam veteran, died in Oct. 2010 at the Asheville VA Hospital. Although I absolutely love my home, I feel I need to be closer to my family in Florida now. I hope you will love this home even 1/2 as much as I do.
Why the Owner Chose Bryson City, NC, USA:
Bryson City has so much 'water', so much entertainment for kids of all ages to enjoy. We built this as our home, but now I will be renting or selling it for others to enjoy.
