Description

Ridge Runner Retreat is a generously appointed two bedroom, two bath cabin with all the amenities you ould expect to make your vacation perfect. From the mountain view, to the gas fireplaces, to the lustrous wood throughout, Ridge Runner Retreat will be the cabin that you come back to year after year. Two satellite TVs enhance your stay, so that you can watch TV in the Master Bedroom while the kids watch something in the living room upstairs. The living room has radiant leather furniture, a stone gas fireplace, in addition to the TV.

A fully equipped kitchen awaits you, but if you don’t feel like cooking, it’s just 15 minutes to Bryson City restaurants or 10 minutes to those along the Nantahala Gorge. The dining room has formal dining for up to eight surrounded by large windows letting in a verdant view.

The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a private entrance to the bathroom. Downstairs, the master suite with its high ceiling features a king bed with TV, a gas fireplace, a mountain view through the wall of windows, and an alcove with a futon so you can keep the little ones close. If you don’t feel like watching TV, enjoy the home theater with music you’ve brought or one of the many music channels on the satellite TV. The master suite also has access to the hot tub on the covered porch, and a private bath. Both the master and upstairs beds have pillow-top mattresses and down and foam pillows.

This beautiful cabin has everything you need for a perfect vacation – from a fire pit on the deck to roast hot dogs and marshmallows, to the ample dining room, to the kitchen, to the sheer spaciousness. Don’t forget to bring your dog!

Ridge Runner Retreat is minutes from the Almond Boat Park, white-water rafting, tubing at Deep Creek, and hiking in the Nantahala National Forest.  Harrahs Cherokee Casino and Event Center featuring concerts and gourmet restaurants is about half an hour from the cabin.

I spoke to Cathy and Melissa. Both were friendly and helpful. I called a few times because I was making a last minute reservation. Great staff. When I narrowed it down between two cabins, Melissa was able to give me more details to help me choose.

The staff is very friendly and knowledgable, they called to check and see how I liked the cabin and made sure that everything was to my satisfaction. Ridge Runner is a very comfortable and spacious cabin, we thoroughly enjoyed our Memorial Day weekend stay. We choose Ridge Runner because it was close to Almond Marina.
