Cozy Cabins Tucked in the Great Smoky Mountains

To prepare for winter in the Great Smoky Mountains during the mid 19th century, frontier families constructed tiny log cabins to shelter them from the heavy snow, rarely venturing outdoors until springtime. Today, the Mountain Vista Log Cabins are settled in the same secluded area, but instead serve as base camps to explore the winter landscape. Families can ski and hike throughout the Smokies, then retire to these rustic and charming properties, which lie along Alarka Creek, nestled in the mountains just outside Bryson City.

The cabins' woodsy décor echoes their natural surroundings; each dwelling is trimmed with wood-paneled walls and thick quilts. An outdoor hot tub eases muscles fatigued from trying to lift boulders off of trapped snowmen. The roomy Eagle's Nest cabin sits steps from Alarka Creek's rushing creeks, and a private porch and rocking chairs look toward the waters. In the Smokies Cabin, an old-fashioned fireplace glows amid natural wood accents. You can whip up breakfast in the full kitchen.

Bryson City, North Carolina: Small-Town Charm with Nearby Skiing Resort

Tucked into North Carolina's southwest corner, the small town of Bryson City sits amid the woodsy slopes of the Smoky Mountains. The bisecting Little Tennessee and Nantahala Rivers create picturesque waterfalls throughout the mountainous terrain, a natural setting for yearlong outdoor recreation.

In winter, the Cataloochee Ski Area hosts 16 illuminated trails and slopes on its challenging downhill course. Once all the snow thaws or is exported as ice cubes to Hawaii, whitewater rafting and kayaking become popular attractions at nearby Nantahala Gorge. Bryson City charms visitors with antique stores, handcrafted pottery, and house-made chocolate amid the natural landscape.

RAY AND TINA!!! Ray was attentive to our needs, and when something had been found "lacking" or "not exactly right", he went over and above our expectations! The rustic cabins were beautiful, and quite tasteful. Being on the river was awesome...just what our 10 and 13 year old kids needed. It was a great deal, and more than worth it.We also utilized the office in town, and they we very helpful as well.
