We're in love with this place!
I cannot say enough about this house. It was possibly the best vacation rental choice we've ever made. I booked it for the views, but we ended up loving the actual house even more. We even asked Cyndi if we could add a night and changed our trip to be able relax in the cabin longer. And honestly it felt more like someone's main home more than a cabin. Down to the smallest touches it just felt like a place someone made nice for themselves, not as much to impress vacationers. We really liked that aspect. I remember reading reviews saying it was spotless, and it really was. I already want to go back, despite it being a 12 hour drive from Pennsylvania. I'll also point out that we stayed here to be in proximity to Great Smoky Mountain National Park for the first time, and I chose this area south of the park kind of as a lucky guess that things might be less touristy and congested than Gatlinburg. I had no idea what I'd like, but after driving through the towns bordering the park, I am so glad Bryson City was our hub rather than those commercialized tourist traps. Driving through Cherokee and seeing all of that hokey stuff made me really appreciate how lucky my choice was to stay out of all of that. So if you like a small, charming, laid back town that hasn't been taken over by things catering to tourists, Bryson City is a great choice, and you can't beat this house if you don't mind being 10 minutes from town in exchange for breathtaking views, complete privacy, and a scenic short drive.
