About the Property
Vacation Home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)
Our mountaintop location is a short, scenic drive around Fontana Lake into quaint Bryson City. We are located a few miles outside of town and up the mountain on a paved road; our home is nestled high on the mountain and surrounded by protected land. With only three homes further down our road, the home is private and quiet.
Bryson City is a "laid back" town free from the congestion, traffic and noise that you came here to escape. Bryson in the summer is home to kayakers practicing on the Nantahala, hikers from Europe and the friendly locals. You can enjoy and "Cup o Joe" with Pam at Smokey Mtn. Perks (our favorite is the Parisian Wrap with the freshest produce you have ever seen) before exploring the locally-owned shops, take the drive to Cades Cove in GSMNP or take a step back in time aboard The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. You can spend a weekday visiting some of the local antique shops or a day trip to visit the world famous Builtmore Estate in Asheville, before heading back for another beautiful sunset on the deck with family. There are so many options, but one of our favorites is relaxing the day away breathing the fresh mountain air with no plans.
At night, you can try your luck at the newly renovated Cherokee Casino, head downtown to The Cork and Bean for a sampling of local wine or check out the new micro brewery or simply kick back and gaze at the stars-which because of the lack of city lights, are so bright and feel like they are close enough to touch.
We are centrally located to the areas most popular attractions including: Nantahala Outdoor Center, Fontana Lake, Great Smokey Mountains National Park (GSMNP), Deep Creek, Cherokee Casino or the Tsali Trailheads. You could even try to strike it rich at the Nantahala River Gem Mine or other nearby prospecting locations. We recommend taking a pontoon boat for the day and explore Fontana Lake from Almond Boat Dock. Our property manager is a life long resident and can also offer locals advice on everything from fishing to the best place to see elk in the Cataloochee Valley.
For the outdoor enthusiasts, there is no better place: there are miles of rivers and lakes for fishing, rafting, hiking or you can tee up at the new Sequoyah National Golf course (designed by Robert Trent Jones).
Whether it’s for a lively family gathering or the intimacy of a much needed romantic get-away, we welcome you to our home where you can’t help but create memories that will last a lifetime.
EXTERIOR: The Bryson Builtmor is a single level home, perfect for folks who aren’t fond of stairs. You can relax at the outdoor table and chairs looking at the heavenly views, sipping your morning coffee and anticipating the beautiful sunset after dining outdoors at the close of your wonderful day. At night, it is easy to find your favorite stars in the wide mountain sky.
ENTRY LEVEL: Featuring an open floor plan with high ceilings in the main living area, creating a rustic lodge atmosphere. Interior accents include beautiful stained glass and a full size Bullwinkle the kids LOVE!
The front door opens onto the spacious great room, dining and kitchen area, with cathedral picture windows that let the mountain views wash over you. A comfortable sofa and a pair of rocking chairs sit opposite a gas log fireplace and provide seating for watching a movie or the big game on the large screen satellite TV.
For those who need to stay connected to the world or kids on Facebook, we have the best internet in the mountains with satellite speeds close to DSL. We updated our equipment in 2015 to ensure the best possible internet speed.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need to prepare snacks or complete meals. It includes a stove with oven, microwave, blender, Slow-cooker, toaster oven and coffee maker with ample counter-top space and a large island for preparation or serving. (Ingles grocery store is conveniently located at the bottom of the road, just before you reach the mountain.)
The dining room table seats six or you may choose to eat outdoors. There is also a gas grill just outside the back door for your use.
Master Suite; The master suite is privately located in the split floor plan and beautifully appointed with a king size bed and large private bath with an oversized whirlpool tub and separate shower. Also included in the master suite is a satellite TV and DVD player.
BEDROOMS: Down the hallway is a large full bath, shared by the two nicely-sized bedrooms with queen sized beds and closets.
There is a laundry room directly across from the bathroom.

About the owner: Floridian who always dreamed of a mountain vacation home. After several years of educating himself on the process of building in the mountains, he decided on a floorplan and spent the next few years enjoying the process of creating this special place in the Smokies.
Why the Owner Chose Bryson City, NC, USA:
This is our third year renting the home on VRBO. The home was used as a family vacation getaway for years, but we were only able to spend a few weeks a year enjoying the home. Our home has been meticulously maintained and looks like it is brand new!
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Beautiful mountain views from a secluded place on top of the ridge. We have spent the Spring making beautiful additions and improvements to the property. Our new satellite internet is almost as fast as DSL with the new dish.
