Description

High on an emerald mountainside, Mountain River Retreat is nestled just above the Nantahala River Gorge.
Mountain River Retreat is miles away from your cares, but moments to unforgettable adventures like white water rafting on the Nantahala River, horseback riding at the Nantahala Village Riding Stables, and zip line tours through one of our national treasures -- the Nantahala National Forest. This 2 bedroom real log cabin has the comforts of home plus Appalachian charm.

From the moment you pull up to Mountain River Retreat, the mountain hospitality will embrace you. Mountain breezes will refresh you as you relax on the swing porch on the screened porch. Get some sun on the Deck at the picnic table or the hot tub. Dazzling mountainscapes will change before you with shifting cloudscapes between sunrise, sunset, and starry nights.
Real log interior will mountain decor add to the ambiance. With satellite TV and wireless internet access, Mountain River Retreat lets you keep in touch while being away from it all.

The kitchen is fully equipped and the table seats six, but if you don’t feel like cooking then the Village Bistro is just up the road. Plus the picnic table is great for dinners al fresco. The Big Wesser BBQ and Brew is just a 5 minute drive with live music on weekends from May to September and an inviting, family-friendly atmosphere.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, and the second bedroom has a pair of twin beds. The two twin beds can be converted into a king at your request. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room and also a rollaway bed to accommodate larger parties.

Hiking at one of the largest old growth forests in the US is less than half an hour away at Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest.
Deep Creek Waterfalls, tubing, and hiking is also about half an hour away at one of the Bryson City entrances to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Great shows, concerts, and restaurants at Harrahs Cherokee Casino and Event Center are about 25 minutes from Mountain River Retreat. The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad is only 15 minutes from the cabin.

Working with the GSCR team could not have been better. We originally planned our trip for the same time in 2016. However, Hurricane Matthew came through Daytona Beach and dropped our 25 year old laurel oak on the front of the house two days before our scheduled departure. I notified GSCR that we would have to cancel. Thought we were far beyond the cut off time for refunds they were able to rent out the cabin for all but one day of our scheduled stay and refunded nearly all of our money. Treating customers like friends is the way to build a great reputation and I want to say thank you again.

Though we've spent many fall days in the Smokies, this was our first time staying at this cabin. It won't be our last. This cabins location is perfectly situated between GSMP and the Fontana Dam/Tail of the Dragon areas. We look forward to another stay!

Our family of 6 enjoyed the Mountain River Cabin for the Great American Eclipse of 2017. We were extremely lucky to have clear skies for the total eclipse. It was so peaceful and breathtaking. We loved grilling out and exploring the local area.
