Description of the Bryson City vacation cabin rental
Mountain Vista is a wonderful private mountain chalet in the Smokies. It's close to many attractions like the Great Smokies Railroad, whitewater rafting, Biltmore Estate, Nantahala Center, and more. An easy access road take you halfway up Mission Mountain where you'll find your mountain home. Enjoy the incredible view from the deck of your very own private cedar chalet. The huge loft has a master bedroom with nice king bed. There is also a full bath, reading nook and an unbelievable view of Stecoah Valley and distant mountains with ever changing hues. Downstairs is another bedroom with full bath across the hall. This bedroom has twin beds which can be placed together for couples if you desire.
You'll enjoy the great room. There's a beautiful stone fireplace, media center with DVD's, two sliding glass doors off the deck, a dining area, and complete upscale kitchen; it even has a waffle iron. Try my mountain waffles on the deck with a morning cup of coffee and a view to die for!
Tired of hiking, fishing, boating, rafting, tubing, and sightseeing? Relax in the hammock with a good book from our own library, cook steaks out on the grill, or watch the antics of the hummingbirds. At night, sit around the fire pit and roast marshmallows. What's nice, if you decide to check on your business or what's going on back home, we have wifi!
Whatever you decide to do, you'll love Mountain Vista. We have a number of renters who come back year after year.
Area Information
This part of the Smokies is right in the middle of the Nantahala National Forest. What does that mean? It means whitewater rafting, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, pontoon boating zip lines, all within a short drive. You can visit the Cherohala Skyline, waterfalls, The Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, the Great Smokies Railroad, Deep Creek, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and more within less than an hour. If you like biking, there's Tsali right down the road. Motorcycles are not far from Deal's Gap and the Tail of the Dragon.
Drive a little further...under an hour...and you'll see the Biltmore House, Dollywood, Pigeon Forge and more. You can be in the middle of "mountain tourism" within a short drive. Luckily, you'll be able to escape to your own mountain hideaway where nature comes first. Really, what does one come to the mountains for? If it's the beauty of nature, incredible sights, lots to do, and a chance to be in "God's Country," this is the place.

Review of Fox Den Cabin

August 7, 2013

What a lovely little cabin! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...very peaceful and relaxing. The kitchen was well-stocked with all "essentials" for praparing meals. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The only "negative" thing I'd say was that the bathroom door needs attention - it was sticking/dragging on the sill...just needs to be cut down maybe 1/4". The directions to the cabin were perfect...we got there with no trouble. It's located conveniently too...easy to get around to area attractions, etc. All in All....we loved it! We definately plan on going back...we'll either look to stay in the same cabin, or depending on availability, try out another one of your cabins. Thank you ! Lisa and Jim Fisk

Perfect Hideaway

If you want to be away from the hustle and bustle, this is the place! Very clean, spacious and had everything we needed.

Melanie Woods

Owner's reply:

Thanks Jackie! We have whitewater, hikes, choo choo trains, waterfalls, zip lines, Mother Nature and gorgeous scenery, but you are absolutely right! Anyone who enjoys the mountains needs to be here. Anyone who wants to spend their time in heavy traffic and outlet malls needs to be elsewhere. Thank you so very much for your review.

Peacefull and Serene

We are an older couple 72 and 80 years young with a small poodle who is a great traveler. The cabin was everything we hoped for and more. Bill and Melanie were terrific hosts and Bill displayed the pateince of Job when explaining the satellite system to a non-techi. The bedroom loft was awesome altho a bit hard to get up the stairs to the loft because of neuropathy in my legs and feet I managed to do it and so very glad as the view in the morning of the sun rising over the mountain was to die for! The amenities were all there in the kitchen didn't need to really bring a thing from home. Next time we won't bring food with us either as there is a terrific grocery store (Ingles) in Robbinsville that has everything you might want or need while at the cabin. However, if you indulge in alcoholic beverages be aware that Graham County is dry, there was another Ingles about 20 minutes away in a different county where we went to get some beer and wine. That was the only thing I didn't pack for our trip. Melanie sent directions to the cabin which were right on! We will be back! Patt, Harold and Shatzie Petty

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Talk about getting away from the Florida heat! We had morning coffee on the deck. Melanie, it was great.
Sandy Kaufman

Thanks for sharing your mountain cabin. We've stayed at places in Nags Head that were five times the price, and your little cabin was better equipped and more homelike. It shows that you care. We will be back. Who needs the sticky Atlantic Ocean anyway when we have the cool lakes of Fontana and Santeetlah. Thanks again.
Bill Elliot

Words cannot express to you how much we enjoyed our week at your incredible cabin. We couldn't get over the view! Everything about the cabin was beyond expectations. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.
Mary and Francis Smith

We loved it and will come again.
Joy and Bill Braxton

The furnishings were so cute and the place was
just perfect. The hammock and view from the
deck were perfect.
