About Darrell Watts

I have been enjoying vacationing in Bryson City, NC for over 30 years with my family. I introduced my wife to the Great Smoky Mountains in 2007. We have been searching for the Perfect Mountain Cabin Retreat for over five years now that we could call our own. We hope you will come and enjoy this Cabin and make as many happy memories with your families as well.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

The house was really nice for us. I took a week vacation with my 2 sisters. The views were gorgeous. The house was very Comfortable and Cozy. It was within walking distance of Bryson City, We had a lot of rain, so watching the weather move through the mountains was Awesome. We ate dinner at the house almost every night & the kitchen was perfect!! The master bedroom is on the first floor with a walkout to the beautiful view on the deck, right next to the hot tub. My sisters and I, all grew up sharing a large bedroom, so the loft with 2 queen beds was fun. There is a large screen separating the 2 beds to give a little visual privacy, but if you need actual privacy there is 1master bedroom. The house is near other homes on the mountainside, but it is a pretty quiet neighborhood.As for the the directions to the property, just follow the directions given and you will be fine. We vacationed with our dogs, and Mr. Watts was very easy to work with. Thank You for a great vacation.

Just as amazing as the last time we stayed there!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this wonderful cabin. The area offers the perfect combination of action and relaxation. We mountain biked Tsali, fished Fontana lake, tubed Deep Creek and spent time at Nantahala Outdoor center and in town. The cabin was extremely nice, clean and had everything we needed. We will certainly be back!

My wife and I along with out two little Morkies loved this cabin!!! Perfect location to Cherokee and the casino - easy drive. The view was incredible of the mountains! Saw one review that stated the road up to the cabin was a little challenging but we had no issue with a two wheel drive vehicle. Only minutes from downtown Bryson City where we enjoyed the shops and restaurants.

The game room downstairs was wonderful as was the hot tub! The first floor master was great since we're not big on climbing stairs. Also made it easier to manage our puppies when it was time to go to bed. the entire house was very clear upon arrival. The bathrooms had everything we needed and the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, glasses and utensils. Washer and dryer conveniently located right off the kitchen. Big plus if you will be taking up outdoor activities and getting yourself dirty. No need to bring a lot of clothes.

We even used the fireplace as cold as it got. Easy to use and heated the cabin quickly. The cabin did not have WiFi but it was actually nice to unwind and not be tethered to a computer checking email. It did have HD TV's in several rooms with satellite TV.

Perfect for two but can accommodate many if needed. We will definitely be back again in the late summer for river rafting and to ride the train!

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a nice, cozy Christmas getaway. We're from Miami so we don't get the cold weather or quietness down there. Everything was more than what I had expected! The cabin is absolutely stunning!! Views are incredible and they provide every single amenity necessary. Darrell has been great with answering any questions and throughout the whole process. We will definitely be staying here again!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Deep Creek Overlook Cabin the frist weekend of December and it was perfect. Very clean and have everything you need for a weekend of fun or just relaxing. In regards to the road, it was not as bad as other reviews made it out to be. As long as you have a 4 wheel drive it shouldn't be a problem. Make sure you just follow Darrell's direction and not GPS. Mr. Watts always answered my questions (via email) very quickly. We will definitely go back again!

Owner's Response: For future guests. You do not need a 4 wheel drive car to get to the cabin. The family car or van will do just fine. We look forward to having you stay! Thanks, Darrell Watts

Beautiful views of lower valley and mountains from porch

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was beautiful from the outside and well furnished, with all the necessary items for a delightful stay. The beds were comfy and linens first rate.

We down rated it for two reasons. First, the door hardware was in much need of repair/replacement (one door wouldn't open at all). Second, the access gravel road was approaching impassable with deep ruts and holes, often bottoming the undercarriage of our full size SUV when traversing it. We prayed for no rain as it would have been impossible to leave or return if it did.

Owner's Response: I have replaced the door hardware. I would have jumped through hoops to fix during their stay if this guest had let me know.. The driveway up from the main road is gravel about 400 yards long with a couple short hills. A two wheel drive car or van will do fine getting to the cabin. We maintain the roads regularly and they are in no way as bad as this guest implied. We try our best to provide a 5 star experience for our guests and look forward to having you stay. Sincerely, Darrell Watts Owner
