About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-7 with multiple-range mountain views

Our cozy, 3 BR/2 bath TuckAway cabin is located near the quaint community of Whittier on the east side of Bryson City. The cabin is perfectly situated on a mountain ridge so you can experience the “Smoky Mountains” as you view the multiple mountain ranges. The uninhibited, panoramic views of the Smoky Mountains from the deck and balconies provide a quiet and relaxing setting. The Tuckaseegee River runs in the valley below the cabin so you can enjoy the sound of the rushing water as you relax on the decks.

Along with the fantastic mountain views at TuckAway, you also have privacy, easy access to quaint restaurants, shops, groceries, and all the outside amenities enjoyed in the mountains. With a paved drive and well-maintained road, our cabin is easily accessible in a 2-wheel drive vehicle with ample parking.

Whether you enjoy watching the mountains by day or the stars by night, you will be amazed by the view from the deck on the east and south sides at TuckAway. The outside rockers and swing are perfect spots to enjoy the panoramic mountain view and beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Other outside amenities include a gas grill and picnic table for a cookout and a fire pit to enjoy roasted marshmallows, your favorite mountain stories, and s’mores for dessert. For those quiet nights after a day of rafting, tubing, hiking, skiing, or sight-seeing, enjoy reading one of our books or magazines or playing a family board game.

Our TuckAway cabin is fully-furnished with modern appliances, furnishings, satellite TV, Internet, and strong cell phone signals. Relax comfortably any time of the year in our central heat and air conditioned cabin with a wood burning fireplace, LCD satellite TV, DVD player, Gameboy, and comfortable sectional couch in the living area. Free password protected WiFi keeps you connected to the outside world even though you will be so mesmerized by the view and the things to enjoy in the area, you may not need it.

The master bedroom (queen bed, hung TV, dresser, night stand, and full closet) is on the first floor with a full-size, furnished bathroom. The second floor includes two more bedrooms and an additional full-size bathroom. The first of the two upstairs bedrooms has a queen bed, dresser, night stands, full closet, and private balcony with possibly the best view (see our pictures). The second bedroom has full and twin beds, dressers, full closet, and a private balcony overlooking the fire pit, quiet woods, and distant mountains.

The kitchen is fully furnished with modern appliances, quality cookware, and place setting for 8. A separate dining area has wood furniture and convenient access to the kitchen and living area. The outdoor gas grill is the perfect cooking choice and eating outside on our picnic table located on the deck is an awesome experience. A sink and full-size washer and dryer are located in the utility room for your convenience. The utility room is also the perfect “mud room” for wet clothes after getting soaked in the local white water.

A cozy cabin with a stunning view. We loved the privacy yet we were close to everything

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very comfortable & as well stocked as my own home. The view from the large deck was beautiful & hearing the train come & go was a big plus for us.

Our only complaint was the mattresses were terrible & need to be replaced.

We did a lot of exploring & hiking and enjoyed seeing the elk that had come out to graze at the Welcome Center!

We had a wonderful getaway with our grown son & daughter & celebrated the total solar eclipse!

Great location, views, amenities.

  • 4 of 5

Easy to access and convenient location to reach Bryson City, Cherokee, GSMNP, Asheville. Nice to be out of the crowds and on a deck with amazing views. More road noise than I'd have expected, but this was probably augmented by the cloudy weather we had most of the trip. Older home with lots of quaint decorations and fairly dimly lit, but we spent most time outside anyway so not a big deal. Didn't use fire pit but imagine it would've been a nice treat as well. Fantastic directions and parking. Don't be intimidated by the hill/route in - we did it pulling a trailer of three small motorcycles with no issue.

Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 - 5 adults and a 3 year old and were very well accommodated. The road up the mountain is a little tricky the first time but it was well worth it. The cabin is well appointed with all amenities and as others have stated - good internet, plenty of linens and one of the few properties I researched that could seat all of us at the table together. Many properties only have a dining table for 4 and others might have to sit at a breakfast bar, for example. Everything about our rental was very nicely and efficiently handled by the owner. Last, but by no means least ... THE VIEWS ARE GORGEOUS - exactly what we were hoping for from a break in the NC mountains. I'm hoping to see them again in the fall/winter - spectacular I would think.

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We spent three days at the TuckAway cabin and had a wonderful time. The views from the porch are breathtaking. The cabin was just as pictured. It was clean and comfortable. Plenty of linens, hot water for showers and great internet connection so we could check on the kids back home. This was our first time renting through VRBO and the owner of the cabin made it super easy. Even though we booked our trip at the last minute, it was no problem. The owner responded to our emails very quickly and was very polite and helpful when we talked to her on the phone. We would gladly recommend this cabin to anyone who wants a quiet getaway with beautiful mountain views.
