Smoky Mountain Moondance!

Lake, river, mountains; everything you could want in a vacation!

Welcome to the place where your mountain/lake getaway begins; right here in the heart of the Blue Ridge.

Does this sound like the mountain luxury destination experience for you?

Smoky Mountain Moondance is perched on a mountainside, overlooking the Nantahala River (far below), just outside of downtown Bryson City, and all it has to offer tourists.

The home affords year round access, and is great for small groups of any and all ages. The home is situated just outside of downtown Bryson City, NC, affording privacy for everyone to relax & enjoy the feel of the WNC mountains. Bryson City has so much to offer tourists, including upscale dining, shopping, tourist attractions, and specifically the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad.

Get ready to be “wowed” by the never-ending views from this contemporary mountain style retreat. With attention to detail, cool finishes, and cozy spaces, you will immediately feel at home at Smoky Mountain Moondance. (That is of course if you can tear yourself away from the wrap-a-round deck, & soaking in the spectacle of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Nantahala River far below & actually venture inside!) The newly renovated, updated and eclectically decorated cottage is warm and welcoming in all its indoor spaces & open floor plan. But, if you need some “alone time”, there is plenty of space inside and out to find your own serenity. There is again the stunning, wrap-a-round deck for ultimate outdoor relaxation.

The Lake Fontana & Nantahala River area has so much to offer guests; from hiking and walking trails, streams, boating, swimming and much more. While at Smoky Mountain Moondance, everyone enjoys all that downtown Bryson City has to offer. Fine dining, dive eateries, shopping, and the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. Of course, when you return home, the spectacular deck affords a space where you can pull up a chair and take in the "sound of silence", observe the night as it fills with stars, and watch the fire flies come out to play in your backyard.

Take a seat and enjoy the sound of nature and the serenity in your own private paradise at the top of the world.

You are also just a short drive from America's favorite scenic byway, The Blue Ridge Parkway, motorcycle touring, biking, hiking, white water rafting, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, zip lining, Segway tour…just about any outdoor activity! Or, take a ride to downtown Asheville to enjoy the first-rate restaurants, shopping, galleries, spas, and entertainment.
