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 Smoky Mountains

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely home with the gorgeous view to look at everyday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hot tub was very relaxing in the evenings. Thank you so much for letting us share your home.

What an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed with the view from the back porch. Every night was a delight as we watched the sun set behind the mountains. The house had all the amenities you need, the furniture was very comfortable, and we loved all the extra blankets to snuggle in at night. This is the first house we have ever rented that had comfortable beds!! The shower in the master bath is huge and beautiful. We will definitely come back here if we are in the area again.

Bryson City is a cute little town, I highly recommend visiting here. Try out the local BBQ and boiled peanuts!

Last, but not least, we enjoyed the wild turkeys that visited every evening!

Owner's Response: Hi Kelli, We are so pleased you enjoyed everything about our cabin that we do! Thanks for all the compliments regarding the furniture and beds. Before we built our cabin I wanted to make sure the beds were comfortable. We have rented to many places in the past and was glad to get home to our bed. So I tried to make sure sleeping would be a pleasure at our cabin! We do hope you will come again when you are in the area. Thanks so much for choosing our cabin. Helen

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay and truly enjoyed the cabin. It was full of amenities and was very clean and well laid out. The view from the hot tub was amazing and the porch chairs and hammock were so relaxing. We hated to leave.

Fantastic cabin for a getaway weekend ... or longer

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding cabin - very clean and very well furnished.

We have rented a number of places before and were very impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was in terms of appliances, etc.

Views are terrific and location results in very quiet nights and peaceful mornings.

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Beautiful, Peaceful Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in "Our Point of View" for a get together with friends. The house is clean and has a nice open floor plan so everyone can be together. We really enjoyed the view and the hot tub.

One negative- there were not enough towels for 10 people, so some of us shared. Also, we are still waiting on our damage deposit to be refunded. It has been over 2 weeks and VRBO says it can take up to a month.

Owner's Response: Hi Taylor, So glad you enjoyed your stay. Our cabin is very peaceful and the views are beautiful. One of our musts is the cabin be cleaned thoroughly by our staff. So sorry for the shortage of towels. We provide enough for all of our guests with extras and I do not know what happened, but I will certainly follow up with my cleaning staff. We usually leave an adequate supply and provide the washer and dryer in the event you need it. I do deposit refunds once a month and always refund the deposit within the 30 day period to the guest's credit card and yours was refunded within that time frame. Sorry it was an inconvenience for you! It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and hope you will come again soon. Thanks, Helen

A wonderful and relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this cabin -- so close to the amenities of Bryson City yet far enough removed to relax and soak in the amazing mountaintop scenery. The cabin was clean, cozy and beautifully decorated for the holidays. We had everything we needed right at our fingertips, and there was more than ample space for the seven of us to stay. And contact with the owner was easy. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone!

It was our pleasure to have your family as our guests. Hope you and your family have a wonderful 2017! Helen
