About Mary Kraft
Settlers Mountain was created to share the wonderful Great Smoky Mountains with friends and family. What started as a personal retreat turned into a family enterprise. Bert and Mildred Kraft loved the mountains and its local people so they settled in Bryson City and built Settlers Mountain (circa 1959). Bert, being a very industrious person with the love of architecture, built the homes on the mountain and refurbished a hand-hewn chestnut log cabin built in the 1840's, one of only five left in the area. Settlers Mountain is owned and operated by the Kraft Family and is enjoyed by five generations of Kraft’s. We welcome you to make Settlers Mountain your retreat and create a lifetime of memories. The Kraft Family
Mary Kraft purchased this House in 1959
Why Mary Kraft chose Bryson City
This property has 200 acres and yet near to town on paved roads. Very well maintained grounds that is wooded and quiet, close to all the action the area has to offer or just sit back and relax. Your just 10 minutes from town and it is an easy place to drive to and find. We are a very safe community with caretakers living on property at only entrance. You will love the wooded forest with full growth trees. We keep all the feeders full, for birds and hummingbirds that will give you a very memorable showing. Hiking trail on property that takes you to the top of our mountain. You will have all the conveniences of home with a view that would be very hard to beat anywhere in the world. We welcome you to share our mountain and make many memories of your on.

Beautiful Views and Experience!
This property and the welcoming caretaker is the perfect place to stay while exploring the Smoky Mountains! The accommodations are excellent with a warm vibe and the wrap around deck is great. Perfect location with the feeling of being away from everything but with the ability to reach hiking and mountain biking locations quickly. Bryson City and Cherokee are quick drives. Caretaker provided great advice on destinations and was super welcoming!
Thanks for the nice review. Come back, your always welcome
Best view ever!!!! Nice place to bring family while husbands Casino 🎰
The only criticisms (-1 ⭐️) are the hard beds...sore back, hips and shoulders. All that is needed in order to upgrade the property and make it 5 ⭐️ is to add nice mattress toppers.
Hi Traci, We have listened. For 2019 we have added memory foam to all King and queen beds in all our cabins. Thanks for your comments and positive feedback. We look forward to your return.
