'FALLS MELODY'

This dramatic custom designed home is situated at above 3000 feet elevation, it overlooks a rushing creek, and a small waterfall, both situated on the property. You can access the creek from the stairs cut into the hillside, or just sit on the terrace above the falls. The large back deck is situated above the road, and gives a panoramic view of the treetops. The firepit is perfect for an evening marshmellow roast. The creek is suitable for wading, and the melody of the rushing water provides for many a relaxing afternoon. There is an area suitable for swimming and sliding less than 2 miles from the house.

The back deck is ideal for outdoor dining, or just relaxing after a busy day. Our guests often comment that while we are a little out of the way, the peace and quiet and serenity at the end of the day is well worth it.

The home is ideally situated. We are 7 miles off of the Smokey Mountain Expressway, which provides easy access to many attractions. Some local attractions include Nantahala Rafting, Zip lining, Deep Creek Tubing, Great Smoky Mountain RR, Great Smokey Mountains National Park, Lake Fontana, Bryson City, Cherokee, Dillsboro, Sylva, Waynesville, and Maggie Valley. Other destinations within 1 to 2 hours drive, including Pigeon Forge, TN, Gatilinburg, TN, and Ashville, NC.

About Linda Carter

We are Kenny and Linda Carter from Crawfordville, Florida. We love to travel whenever we get the chance.

Linda Carter purchased this house in 2005

Why Linda Carter chose Bryson City

The sound of the waterfall is what sold us on this vacation home, It is quiet & secluded, and the melody of the water can be heard in the bedrooms,

The Bryson City location is central to many activities.

What makes this house unique

This home was a custom designed home. It has slate floors in the foyer & kitchen, tile floors in the baths. There is rustic wood paneling and catherdral ceilings in the livingroom. Most of our guests comment on how restful it is, and everyone enjoys the creek & falls.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great place to stay with sounds of the water for added relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place to stay with large rooms and everything you need. The back deck overlooking the stream and waterfalls is great! We had some rain a couple of days after we arrived so it really got the stream and waterfall flowing! Property is definitely out of the way several miles from Bryson City but not so far as to make a trip to town for supplies a long distance. Kitchen has everything you need to prepare and serve meals. Beds were comfortable. The owners have a floodlight installed shining on the stream behind the cabin to illuminate the area at night. A nice touch! Plenty of hot water for the five of us. Overall a very enjoyable stay and would recommend it!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this cabin before and once again it exceeded all expectations. If you want a place that has all the comforts of home then this is the place for you. Everything about Falls Melody was perfect. Our 4 legged babies were welcome and had a blast being able to be with us. The only thing I would change is the TV in the den could use an upgrade. A much larger one would be great. Other than that, we had such a relaxing vacation there. We will absolutely be back!!!

The waterfall sounds gave us the best sleep I can remember. We slept with the screen door open every night off the upper deck.
