Sitting at the top of Fontana Ridge, our guests will enjoy our ridge top cabin with lots of privacy and breathtaking long and short range views of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Our large porch has ceiling fans and plenty of rockers and loungers for you comfort. The porch overlooks our outdoor living area which includes a Park Charcoal Grill, two person hammock and a wonderful 7 person hot tub with luxurious terry robes included for your convenience. Evenings are equally beautiful with a sky full of stars on clear nights.

Our Great Room features two sets of french doors that bring the mtn views inside, a wood burning stone fireplace and vaulted ceiling with a unique spiral staircase up to the loft overlooking the Great Room. The room is furnished with comfortable leather furniture to enjoy our 55' flatscreen TV with Dish Network and DVD player. The loft offers two queen size beds for the loft lovers in the crowd!

Our cabin has a fully stocked kitchen with dishes, pots & pans and every small appliance needed to prepare a gourmet meal.

The Master Bedroom has a wonderful pillow top king size bed with ceiling fan and windows that give you a beautiful view of the mtn ranges. You will also enjoy the 32' flatscreen TV with Dish Network and DVD player.

There are two guest bedrooms with comfortable queen beds and ceiling fans. Each room has a 19' flatscreen TV with Dish Network. One of the guest bedrooms as well as the loft also gives you the beautiful view of the mtn range.

About Helen Avant

When Wendell & I began bringing our grandchildren to Bryson City to ride the Great Smoky Mtn Railway some years ago, We always had dreams of having a cabin in this area. When we visited in 2011 we found our lot by chance and was not really 'looking'. We had not planned on building for a few more years. Those plans quickly changed when we realized this was 'Our Point of View'...We loved the community and quickly got to know a few of the residents as we went though the process of making our decision. We loved the location, the space of the lots which provides privacy, and a wonderful view. There was something that just 'felt right' about it.. After everything came together so easily, We decided to move forward and you know the rest of the story! Construction on our cabin began in November 2011 and was completed in April 2012. We love our cabin and hope our guests will quickly come to love it as we do. We are very family oriented and invite you and your family to feel 'at home' when you vacation with us. We hope that we have met the expectation of all our guests and hope to build long lasting relationships for years to come. Best Regards, Wendell & Helen Avant

Why Helen Avant chose Forneys Creek

We love the location of our cabin. Everything from a short drive to Bryson City to the central location of ALL activities, the beautiful views, to the paved roads which make access to our cabin very easy. We love the quiet and close knit community of Fontana Ridge.

What makes this Cabin unique

We knew what we wanted in our cabin and was able to design our floor plan. We love the view from the location of our cabin and love the ability to enjoy our cabin inside and out with the additional outdoor living area. The open floor plan and additional outdoor space creates room for all to spread out and relax. The outdoor area is very relaxing from a dip in the Hot Tub to a lazy afternoon in the 2 person hammock. We hope you will enjoy your vacation in our cabin!

                                                                So glad the cabin was perfect for your family. We love the views and always hate to leave! It would be our pleasure to have you as our guests again and appreciate you telling your friends. Hope to hear from you again soon!



                                                                The "view" is spectacular

                                                                Utica L.

                                                                The cabin was warm and comfortable, there was plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed to make meals, and the bathrooms were completely stocked with more than enough towels. The shower in the master bedroom was incredible after a long hike through the surrounding neighborhood. Last, but certainly not least the views from the back porch were breathtaking.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                So glad your group had a great time. We really strive to make everything comfortable for our guests. The kitchen is a big deal for me so I tried to stock it to my specification. We also love our large shower in the master. It is so nice with the continuous hot water! So happy the views were such a wonderful experience for everyone. We just find such peace and relaxation on our porch. We hope you will visit us again soon!



                                                                Ideal Quiet Getaway

                                                                Dustan J.Jackson, MS

                                                                This house was an absolutely perfect place to relax for our honeymoon. The place is well maintained and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare and serve meals. It was also really nice to have a washer and dryer available, especially for a longer stay. We loved the hot tub and fireplace, and the master bed and bath are very nice. Tips for first time renters:

                                                                1. The roads to the house are well paved and maintained, but if you're staying during cold weather, you'll still want to be prepared for driving in the mountains just in case. We had a bit of sleet on the evening of our arrival and ALMOST didn't make it up the steep mountain drive, even with a 4x4 SUV. Four wheel drive is a must in winter weather! Otherwise, standard cars should be fine.

                                                                2. The Ingles grocery store is nice and has just about everything you could want. Be advised that it takes a solid 13 minutes to get there from the house, but this probably isn't a big deal to most folks.

                                                                3. The Biltmore Estate is an easy 1.5 hour drive to the east in Asheville - highly recommend (get there early to avoid the worst of the crowds).

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                We are so glad you enjoyed your honeymoon! Our cabin is a nice place to relax with lots of privacy. The kitchen is a big deal for me so I wanted to make sure my guests have everything they need. No matter the weather, the hot tub is a relaxing experience. We love the fireplace in the winter. The roads can be a challenge in inclement weather, but just glad it doesn't happen very often. We love the convenience to Asheville, Gatlinburg TN, Clingman's Dome, Nantahala Outdoor Center, Cherokee and several parks right in the Bryson City Area. We certainly hope you will visit us again on your next trip. It would be our pleasure to have your as our guests again.



                                                                Fantastic View, plenty of space, well organized kitchen

                                                                George A.

                                                                We loved our family stay here, all 9 of us! With three bedrooms and a loft space with two beds there are plenty of places to sleep. And we enjoyed the nice kitchen with all the tools needed to cook some delicious meals. It was cold in December, but we stayed cozy and had fun playing games and making music too! Overall an excellent family experience. Thanks so much!

                                                                Hi George,

                                                                Super glad your family enjoyed our family home! I designed it with family in mind. We have rented many cabins, cottages and homes over the years and in some cases was disappointed with kitchens that state they were will equipped and were not at all when we arrived. So I was wanted to make sure my guests got a well equipped kitchen. Thanks so much for choosing our cabin and we hope your family will come again on your next trip to Bryson City. Hope you have a wonderful 2018!


                                                                It was amazing! We loved our Christmas trip there. The cabin was very nice & close to town.

                                                                We loved the cabin. It was nice & clean. It was decorated beautiful for Christmas. We made a lot of memories there. It will be a Christmas we will always remember. The cabin was in the mountains, but still close to town. The Polar Express train ride was awesome.

                                                                Hi Kathy,

                                                                So happy your trip was all you anticipated and more. Nothing like those memories you make with your family! We also love the location of our cabin. It is so close, but seems so far away once you are there! We hope to have you visit again on your next trip to Bryson City.



                                                                Wonderful time was had by all!

                                                                My family had a great stay at ‘Our Point of View.’ The House was beautiful, spacious, and clean. The kids loved playing in the loft area and really enjoyed the hot tub. The view is AMAZING, The owner is very friendly and accommodating. We will stay there again!

                                                                Owner's Response:
