About the property

3 bedrooms (sleeps 8), 2-1/2 bathrooms, modern kitchen, hot tub, screened porch

Carolina House is a beautiful cedar-sided 3 bedroom, 2½ bath, modern mountain home located on 3 wooded acres nestled in the Nantahala National Forest of the western North Carolina mountains. This new home’s amenities include free WiFi, gas fireplace, modern kitchen with automatic dishwasher, air conditioning, satellite television, full-size washer & dryer, a 6 person hot tub & gas grill on back porch, and a screened front porch with genuine Carolina Rockers over looking Alarka Creek. A fenced side yard is located off the back porch.

The 3 acre grounds include ~600 feet of a bold Alarka Creek flowing through the property including a shallow wading hole. The Creekside Trail provides easy access to Alarka Creek. A picnic table, sitting bench, fire ring, and ample cut firewood (no additional charge) are provided for guests along the Creekside Trail.

Carolina House is very children friendly. The property grounds provide ample area to explore and play, including Alarka Creek. In addition, Carolina House has multiple items for kids of all ages from toddler to teenager (high chairs, playpen, videos & DVDs, puzzles and games, toys, Sega Dreamcast, fishing poles).

Area Attactions: Carolina House is located just 15 minutes south of Bryson City, NC and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our ‘front driveway’ is a scenic 5.9 mile drive on a nicely maintained and paved county road (exit 64, US 74).

Within a 20 minute drive, visitors can enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities including the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, whitewater rafting, creek tubing, canopy zip-lines, horseback riding, hiking, waterfalls, fishing, mountain biking, gem mining, golfing, and scenic country-side train rides on the Smoky Mountain Railroad just to name a few.

Additional area attractions include antique exploration, scenic drives & vistas, local merchant shopping, and local restaurants.

Great secluded property surrounded by smoky mountains

  • 5 of 5

The house is great, very clean and secluded. The best part is sitting on the screened in porch in the mornings and evenings listening to the creek rush below!

Excellent family friendly location in the mountains!!!

  • 5 of 5

Carolina House was the perfect spot for our New Year's get away! Had 3 generations staying and everyone had a great time. The house came with everything needed in the kitchen. Gas fireplace was wonderful. Tons of movies and games to choose from. Kids had a great time finding rocks in the creek.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed the week of 07/09/16 and had a great time. The creek, fire pit and hot tube were awesome! Spent the day at the creek on Sunday and cooked S'mores that night on the fire pit. (But be warned that the nuts from the trees will fall on your head and it hurts.) The cabin is pretty much stocked with all you will need. Enjoyed playing the games that are there too. The area attractions were very enjoyable too. We enjoyed the Great Smoky Mountain train ride, Sliding Rock, Deep Creek Trail just to name a few. And the owners are great to work with. Would recommend this home to friends.

Beautiful Mountain Home

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous vacation home! My friends and I agree, we have never stayed in a more organized or well stocked home. We regret not being able to use the hot tub because the approaching winter storm resulted in high winds with sticks and branches falling all over. The fireplace more than made up for it, The area is beautiful and we hope to be able to book another long weekend in the summer so we might enjoy the creek and fire pit.

Carolina House is a beautiful cedar-sided 3 bedroom, 2½ bath, mountain home located on 3 wooded acres nestled in the Nantahala National Forest of the western North Carolina mountains. This new home’s amenities include gas fireplace, modern kitchen, air conditioning, free WiFi, unlimited local and long distance telephone service, 6 person hot tub and gas grill on back porch, fenced side yard, and a screened front porch with genuine Carolina Rockers over looking Alarka Creek. Location is secluded enough for quiet privacy, yet close to area golfing, horseback riding, white water rafting, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, and much more. The sounds of Alarka Creek running through the property will lull you to sleep after a dinner of fresh caught trout (even the fishing poles are provided).

Carolina House is located just 10 minutes south of Bryson City, NC and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
