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.

Enjoyed our stay
We enjoyed our stay once again. Thanks Settler's Mountain!
So glad you could return and hope you have many more time to create memories of a life time.
They thought of everything!
Thank you for sharing this beautiful haven in the woods! We truly loved this beautiful home. The photos really don’t do it justice. There were an abundance of hummingbirds at the feeder (even while we were sitting on the porch)! The beds were so comfy and right down to salt & pepper, all of our needs were met. The hosts were wonderful!
Thanks for the nice review
Relaxing, serene setting
We loved Settlers Mountain! Warm welcome, clean and cozy cabin. Loved watching the sunrise and sunset each day on the porch. The porch is a bird haven, with no shortage of hummingbirds. Conveniently located! We had an excellent time here and will definitely return. Thanks for your hospitality!
Courtney, so glad your stay was excellent.
We arrived April 14, Sunday afternoon. I loved the house when I first saw it. It was very comfortable. So peaceful around the houses and everyone that I met was very nice. But the driveway took some getting used to.! We all enjoyed it so much. We plan to be back again. We left on Thursday of that week.
Thanks Darlene, good to have you with us.
Beautiful..quiet...convenient to local attractions
Very nice property. We loved the view from the mountains. The managers are extremely knowledgeable about the history of the mountain and gave us valuable tips that made our stay memorable. Would definitely recommend this property.
Thanks Dawn, come back when you are able. You are always welcome
