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.

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 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.

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, son, and daughter-in-law and I came up for our daughter's wedding, they were married about a mile away over on another hill (as a crow flies) but you know how long of a ride that can be to get there. It was a gorgeous weekend for it. We've never been to the mountains in the Fall. It's been great! We loved the huge cabin where they stayed, but it was nothing compared to the coziness here! Beautiful cabin and great fall vacation. Cozy and a breath taking sunrise view! We will most likely stay here when we come back up this way. I hope to come with snow on the ground one day - that sounds awesome! Thanks!

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.

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 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.

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.

It is a very nice property with an incredible view. The weather could have cooperated a little bit more (2 days of rainy, 1 day of clear), but all in all it was a very nice "escape" for an anniversary celebration and end-of-summer getaway.
