2/2 Cabin w/ Luxury Amenities and Rustic Designer Appointments through out. 5 minutes from the N.O.C., and Completely Renovated! We would love to hear from you, Call or Email us and ask about "Paddlers Retreat". ***Online Booking Available 24/7***

The space
Whether you are looking for a Vacation Cabin to unwind at the end of an active day outdoors, or you just want Peaceful Privacy and Relaxation, "Paddlers Retreat" is ideally located between Bryson City, the Tsali, and the N.O.C!
Inside the cabin you will find a well appointed kitchen with everything you require to prepare and serve your meals.
The open and spacious floor plan is ideal for entertaining and relaxation. In the Living Room, the Stone fireplace is the focal point!

In 2020, the living room furniture was updated with a leather set that reclines and offers even more seating space.

For your entertainment, there are 3 flat screen TV's with satellite channels included. In the living room, there is a DVD player, assorted board and card games, and in the event of a rainy day, there is a Wii Game System.
The split floor plan does offer abundant privacy between the two bedrooms! On one side of the cabin, there is the Master Bedroom with King size bed (luxury linens and bedding are provided) and a private en suite bathroom. On the opposite side of the cabin, you will enjoy a "Jr. Master Suite" with a second King size bed, and an adjoining full bathroom. Each bedroom offers a 32" flat screen television with an extensive selection of satellite Channels to choose from.

The covered back deck offers several rocking chairs to relax and gather around the Fire Pit, enjoy a soak in the Sparkling hot tub, and Enjoy the ever changing beauty of the Smoky Mountains!
Outside: There is a large flat yard, and...

...The Private Nature Trail has been expanded/upgraded and meanders through the back acreage, and leads to a lovely flat area beside a Mountain Stream that is covered by a canopy of shade trees.
It is quite relaxing to just take a walk in the woods, and the Nature trail is sure to be a hit with 2 and 4 legged Guests alike!

For the more adventurous hikers, there are trails (off the property and over US Forest Service land) to hike the surrounding area.
On the covered deck, there is a Gas Fire Pit (a full canister of propane for each group is provided, plus what ever is left on the Fire Pit).

Additionally, the cabin now offers complimentary high speed Internet/WiFi! (The internet is best suited for emailing, social media, and browsing the web. Not for streaming)

Getting to the Cabin: Access to this private retreat is easy. Paddlers Retreat is located just over a mile from the main highway which is far enough to enjoy Peace and Quiet without "road noise" (it is so quiet, you could hear a pin drop). The road is not narrow or steep, and you do not feel as though you are "climbing the Mountain". Close enough to easily arrive at all the area activities quickly and without excess time in your car.

Ideally located between the Nantahala Outdoor Center and the Tsali Recreation and Mountain Biking Park, and Bryson City is less than 15 minutes away!

We offer a few tips and optional convenience services:

... Also available is our Shopping service. If you would like to arrive at the Cabin with your Groceries already stocked, ask for details, we will have everything waiting for you upon your arrival.

... If you would like to enjoy a Spa Massage Service at the Cabin, it is a good idea to book in advance to assure availability. Your Professional Massage Therapist will come to you, so when you are done, they quietly disappear and leave you to relax!

... If your vacation dates are during 'Season' or Holidays and you plan to rent a pontoon or fishing boat, it may be a good idea to reserve in advance! Lake Fontana is primarily National Forest, Smoky Mountains, and Federally owned, so the Lake is never 'Busy', but the few available rental boats do get booked up.

We Offer "Contact Free" Check In/Out
IMPORTANT CLEANING INFORMATION: We do our best to make Environmentally Friendly choices whenever possible. This does not include Cleaning Products. All Natural “Green” Cleaning products are not successful against todays Germs and Viruses.

Our Pet Policy Overview:

10 out of 12 of our Cabins are Pet Friendly. Our Pet acceptance varies, and is based on the amount of space for our 4 legged Guests to enjoy (inside the Cabin as well as the amount of space outdoors).                                                                                                                          To give you a basic idea, our most common Pet Acceptance Guidelines would be: Up to 2 Pets that are each 40 pounds or less, and He/She may be larger if there is just 1 Pet. Pet Rent is a total of $50.00 per reservation.

When a pet has been a Guest, special cleaning procedures are performed and specific products are used. Our goal is to make sure no one can tell that there has been a pet on the premises. Please call or email us to ask about our pet policies as they relate to your request.

We are a family owned and operated Company, and we love living in the Mountains of Western North Carolina! We manage an exclusive collection of Vacation Cabins. For us to agree to manage and offer a property to Guests, it must meet our specific criteria. (We are very selective, so all you need to do is to find the cabin that is the best fit for your group). We currently offer 12 cabins as Vacation Rentals. Every cabin must have either Mountain Views and/or a Creek setting. All of the cabins are cleaned and maintained by our Team, and all of them provide a sparkling hot tub, complimentary WiFi, Peaceful Enjoyment, and access roads that do not require 4 WD, (a few are motorcycle accessible and 10/12 are Pet Friendly). Additionally, the Owner has to make the Guests comfort and enjoyment their top priority! Most Owners do not live close enough to be "hands on" (that is what we are here for), but we need to be on the same page with our basic principals and philosophies. As hands on property managers, we live within 45 minutes of the cabin you will rent. Close enough to be there if needed, but far enough to assure your private enjoyment...
