Thank you for sharing your cabins. We enjoyed the wonderful views!! It was our last night here and we heard a noise outside. We saw a little black bear roaming around the property. He entertained us as we ran around from the decks to the windows to catch a glimpse of this beautiful creature. It was a great way to end our trip.
- 07/28/13 -- The Reinhardts of State Road, NC:
We have stayed in several cabins in the Smokies and this is one of our favorites! We were on the mountains alone most of the week - fabulous! We even had a visit from a bear. [But just because he's there doesn't mean you should feed him!] He paid us surprise visit in the evening around dusk. Love your home thanks for sharing!

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We will always remember it as the place where we got engaged. We enjoyed the beautiful views and perfect weather. Perfect place to be close to nature while still getting to have the amenities of home.

This was our first trip to Bryson City and we had a terrific time. Loved this cabin "home away from Home". Absolutely perfect, clean, cozy. Thank you so much for everything. We'll be back soon.

This is my third trip to Bryson city and this has been my favorite cabin so far. I was really looking for a cabin with a view and this was definitely the cabin to choose. Watching the fog roll down the mountain in the morning was beautiful. this was the first vacation my boyfriend and I have taken together and we very much enjoyed the seclusion. We rode the Smoky mtn. Railroad on Saturday afternoon. W went to Dillsboro & shopping around the little town. If you are looking for a scenic view this was not the right excursion, I highly recommend the Nantahala Gorge Ride instead. We loved the cabin. So comfy & looking forward to this cabin again.

Thank you for a wonderful retreat. We experienced snow, mist, rain, blue sky and 60 degree sunshine all in one week time. It was a welcome change from the desert.
- 1/18-25/2013 - Scott & Kathy Keough - Central FL
What an amazing place. More than promised, the amenities furnishings and views are wonderful. At home, but restful and exceptional set up. We look forward to returning to enjoy the Spring views and such, as most were closed for the season. Snow was gorgeous, not something we see in FL.

My husband and I were very excited to be here in this beautiful cabin. The views are wonderful. We had a wonderful New Year's Eve on the GSMR Gala. This cabin is a wonderful & gracious place to relax & explore nature. The amenities were exceptional and the distances to town was just right. We definitely consider coming back. the octagon dining room is spectacular.

Loved our home away from home. Enjoyed dinner on the covered porch and reading in the Jacuzzi and back porch-very relaxing! Deep Creek was a short drive to a great picnic site and waterfalls were a nice easy walk to see. This was our first time and we will have to come back.

- Tom & Diane, Calabash, NC:
Your cabin is beautiful. We had a great time at the Park. We went to the dam, but the Blue Ridge Parkway was the best. It was beautiful at the higher altitudes. Hope to be back in the future.
- 10/8/2011 - Don Wollum & Carol Cherala, Hillsborough, NC:
Thank you for sharing your lovely and comfortable home with us and others so that we can enjoy the beauties and the natural wonders of this area. The trails at Tsali, kayaking on Fontana Lake, and bicycling fill our days with many joys and much fun. Returning “home” to this lovely cabin offered comfort and relaxation. We enjoyed perusing all of the books you have in the evening while we lay (and slept) in front of the warmth of the fireplace. The weather was stellar all week and highlighted the natural beauty of this land that truly reflects the miracles of God’s creation. We look forward to return trips and stays at Ridge Runner Retreat.
- 9/24/2011 - Doug & Beverly Smith, Villa Rica, GA:
My wife and I just had our 37th anniversary and we have stayed at many places over the years, but this one is one of the best. We had some great friends come up with us and we all had a great time. Wish we could have stayed longer. There is so much you can do. We loved the town of Bryson City and the nearby waterfalls. We will be
back again I am sure. Thank you for letting us use this wonderful home.
