About Jim and Shirley McGukin

North Carolina family that treasures the beauty of the Deep Creek area of the Great Smoky Mountain and the comfortable feeling that you find in the town of Bryson City.

Jim and Shirley McGukin purchased this house in 2012

Why Jim and Shirley McGukin chose Bryson City

Going to Deep Creek has always been a yearly vacation event for my family- since I was a child, then with my wife and then with our children after we became parents. This is a cherished piece of Americana which changes in a way-but never really changes. This area is a peaceful refuge from the everyday pressures of the modern lifestyle. Whether one walks the trails of the park, sits and listens to the symphony of the crystal clear waters of Deep Creek, or seeks to outsmart that trophy trout, Deep Creek has something for everyone of every age. Since the early 1960's, tubing down the creek is a unique local tradition that continues to grow each year. There just isn't anything like stepping out to the early morning fresh mountain air and listening to the babbling waters of Deep Creek. We hope you can experience our little peace of heaven.

Great place for weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a magical weekend. Brought the kids and grandkids up for Polar Express and had about 5 inches of snow. We had a family snowball fight in the very spacious yard. The house had everything we needed. We will be back again.

The house was perfect and having the creek right outside was really nice. We look forward to coming back next summer.

Very nice home!

  • 5 of 5

When we rented the home on this site it was advertised as " family friendly." When we got the contract online from VRBO, it said no children allowed. I don't know which statement is correct, however they shouldn't advertise one way, then switch after the money is paid. It may just be an honest mistake. As for the home, it is very nice. It is a well maintained 1950's style brick ranch that has been updated, but still has the charm of an older home. The home is on a beautiful lot in a quiet neighborhood near Deep Creek. I spoke to the owner briefly by phone and they were very pleasent. We are local and often rent a home in the area for overflow guests, and will consider renting this home again, but will need clarification as to if this property is "family friendly" or not.

Owner's Response: I am not sure where the vrbo info about no children came from. We have always allowed children.
