About Karen Whitaker

Tim and Karen live in the Roanoke Valley of Virginia, but call Bryson City there second home. Karen spent many summers there with her grandparents, Troy and Maude Allen, enjoying all the offerings of the Smokey Mountains.

Karen Whitaker purchased this Cabin in 2014

Why Karen Whitaker chose Bryson City

We built Allen's Retreat on family land passed down from my grandparents. The privacy, yet closeness to town and the beautiful mountain views made it all the more special. We couldn't have picked a better location to soak in the hot tub under the covering of our magnificent porch.

What makes this Cabin unique

One of the great things about this luxury cabin is location, location, location! Only 10 minutes from town, and only 1 mile of hard surfaced road off highway US 74. This cabin is motorcycle friendly, and you don't have to worry about any steep mountainous driveways making it a challenge to get to. Once you arrive to Allen's Retreat, you can let your cares melt away in the spa boasting 45 jets. After a relaxing soak, you can enjoy watching tv in any of the bedrooms or great room. Then fix your favorite comfort foods in this plentiful kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.
