Laurel Bush is an exceptional riverfront community unlike any other in Western North Carolina. We offer the perfect vacation getaway to take pleasure in all 4-season activities and experiences that North Carolina boasts. Surrounded by the Great Smoky Mountains and nestled on the banks of the Tuckaseigee River, Laurel Bush is naturally suited for recreation and adventures.

Whether you want to relax or play and escape into nature, Laurel Bush is the spirit of what every vacation should be. The onsite large covered pavilion is conveniently located close to the cabins for picnics, socializing or relaxation. You can enjoy sitting on the deck listening and watching the river go by or sit at the fire pit on a cool evening while looking across the river at the original train wreckage from the movie starring Harrison Ford, “The Fugitive!"

Please do not hesitate to call with any questions.

Cabin was perfect!

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was just perfect! Cozy, warm, and wonderful to hear the river outside the window. We didn't get to take advantage of river as it was high from rain, but looked like it would be a great location to linger and fish, when the water was down. Convenient to get to highway and visit other locals too.
