About Mary Kraft

Settlers Mountain was created to share the wonderful Great Smoky Mountains with friends and family. What started as a personal retreat turned into a family enterprise. Bert and Mildred Kraft loved the mountains and its local people so they settled in Bryson City and built Settlers Mountain (circa 1959). Bert, being a very industrious person with the love of architecture, built the homes on the mountain and refurbished a hand-hewn chestnut log cabin built in the 1840's, one of only five left in the area. Settlers Mountain is owned and operated by the Kraft Family and is enjoyed by five generations of Kraft’s. We welcome you to make Settlers Mountain your retreat and create a lifetime of memories.

The Kraft Family

Mary Kraft purchased this house in 1959

Why Mary Kraft chose Bryson City

This property has 200 acres and yet near to town on paved roads. Very well maintained grounds that is wooded and quiet, close to all the action the area has to offer or just sit back and relax.

What makes this house unique

Named for the beautiful sunsets that can be seen right from the front porch, this secluded, private home was built for the matriarch of the Kraft Family, Florence Kraft, who was married to Husband Al for 65 years! It was said that just staying here will extend your marriage or maybe your family.

Wonderful & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Was looking for a place to stay to bring the kids to ride the Polar Express Train and came across this Gem! We only stayed two nights, but it was wonderful! The house was a cute little country style house that held our little family of 6 just great! We cook most of our meals while on vacation because our children are very expensive to feed! The kitchen was great with all the amenities. Next time would love to stay longer! It is a short ride to downtown Bryson City.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed everything this place had to offer. The hospitality was wonderful. The house has everything you need to cook meals. There is also a nice grilling area in the rear of the house. My oldest daughter enjoyed the short walk down the hill to the rec center with me and picking out a movie to watch. Thank you for a wonderful mountain home!

peaceful stay and lovely house

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and well kept. It is close to the attractions. We were able to hike and visit different waterfalls and then went back to relax. The house is stocked with enough utensils and appliances that we can cook nice warm meals. Grocery stores are close by. If you don't feel like cooking, there are restaurants around. Also, the wifi and the cable TV are awesome. We never have problems with connectivity. The laundry facility is also a plus. Care takers are friendly and helpful. Overall, we cannot be happier.
