Description

Ridge Runner Retreat is a generously appointed two bedroom, two bath cabin with all the amenities you would 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 your favorites on the large screen TV in the living room upstairs while the kids watch TV or play games in the media room downstairs. The living room has comfortable leather furniture, a stone gas fireplace, in addition to the TV.

If you are an avid reader, you will enjoy the large assortment of hard and paperback books. There is surely something to appease any reader’s genre.

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, a gas fireplace, a mountain view through the wall of windows, and media room 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 with 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.

We had a great time at Cherokee, Deep Creek, on the Smoky Mtn. RR, at Nantahala, and visited Fontana Dam. We enjoyed the shops in downtown Bryson City. The cabin was beyond our expectations. It is first class. The team at GSCR was very courteous, professional and knowledgeable. We enjoyed being out of the Florida heat and humidity. We loved the view and the hot tub.
