About Jason McClure

Jason first moved to the Nantahala river gorge in 2001 it was there he met Kara. In 2005 they finished construction on their house, and in 2006 Kara relocated full time to NC. They have lived year round in Bryson City since 2006 until recently when they relocated just down the road to Asheville. They both have spent countless hours on the rivers and trails in the area and have a deep connection to the area.

Jason McClure purchased this house in 2005

Why Jason McClure chose Smoky Mountains

The house is located on a private 1.77 acre lot within the Village Cove community. The community owns a 20 plus acre permanent conservation easement that borders the Nantahala arm of Fontana Lake. It is conveniently located off of highway 74 and has easy access to all the area has to offer.

Excellent cabin! Had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean, comfortable, everything worked, and our family had a wonderful time here for our six-day stay. Although it seemed like you had completely escaped into the woods, you were actually close to all necessary conveniences, since Bryson City was only about ten miles away. We enjoyed hiking -- several good trails available from the Deep Creek trailheads and other Great Smokies locations. The Train Museum in Bryson City is spectacular! Everybody we met was friendly and made you feel at home. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for the Great Escape. Thanks, Jason, from my whole family.

Great Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was 5 minutes to the NOC and 10 min to Bryson City. My husband and I had our own mini apartment in the basement. Our 2 young grandsons and their parents used the 2 bedrooms on the main level. It was a perfect layout for the 6 of us.

The kitchen was well stocked and lovely. The boys had a blast in the cool master shower. We spent as much time as we could on the deck which felt like a tree house. I would recommend this property!!

a great weekend escape!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very nice and worked well for the 3 couples in our group. The location can't be beat. Very private yet close to the river , hiking and biking trails. It is the nicest cabin we have rented in the area. I'd rent again in a heart beat!

Third Stay - Now viewing it as my mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this wonderfully appointed home three times is the past two years. It is impeccably maintained. The home is ideal for two couples or families with full baths, bedrooms and sitting areas on each level. The kitchen is well laid out and the washer and dryer work very well. We most enjoy sitting on the back deck and visiting. You feel like you are completely removed from any bustle and are alone in the woods while still being super close to so many activities whether you want to: hike, paddle, gem mine, mountain bike or zip line.

Beautiful relaxing house in the woods

  • 5 of 5

It was a very spacious, beautiful house. There was plenty of room. Jason was always available by phone or email to help. The lodge and pool area is a bit more campy than resortish, but my family had fun swimming in the pool and we did not have any problems getting in. We had 2 young boys and it was great with kids. We would recommend this place.
