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 Bryson City
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.

The cabin is in a great location. It is as pretty as in the pictures. A great home away from home.
Our family enjoyed NOC rafting, hiking in Deep Creek, Bryson City and Cherokee Play "Unto these Hills". A great secret swimming hole off of 28N. A place to rent paddle boards from Bryson City Outfitters. This is a place we'd highly recommend.
Great house great location
The house is beautiful and has everything you need. 4 miles from Nantahala Outdoor Center, 20 minute drive to hiking in the Smokies.
Clean, great location for NOC. Smooth experience.
Had a great time hiking and kayaking with my family! No issues. Great location for the NOC.
Beautiful, clean house
We loved our stay here! There was really nothing that we would have wanted to be different, and honestly, I'm quite picky. This house is beautiful- the pictures don't do it justice- and the layout of the house was perfect for 4 adults and 2 children to have plenty of space. The kitchen is very spacious and was perfect for cooking a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. The house is located on a private piece of property, which provided some great exploration opportunities for my children. We were just a short drive from Bryson City, which we enjoyed walking around. We would love to go back to this area again and I will only stay in this house!
Wonderful location. House had everything we needed. Owner was very responsive. Beautiful new home!!
Highly recommend. The view from the back porch was amazing. We were enveloped in fall foliage.
Beautiful home, excellent location!
We were in the area to attend a concert at Harrah's in Cherokee. The home was easy to get to from the highway which made it easy to travel the area. The pictures don't do justice to the clean, transitional feel of the house. We'll stay again when back in the area.
