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.

Thank you to the Clark's for sharing their beautiful home with fantastic views and a great hot tub. We went whitewater rafting, rode the train, and went to Cherokee. This was a very relaxing vacation.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. We were here for a long weekend to relax and visit with our daughter who is working here for the summer. We all enjoyed the cabin, the view, and the area nearby. We visited Fontana Dam, Bryson City, the water falls at Deep Creek campground. Our family has stayed in many cabins around Gatlinburg for 20+ years and this is our favorite so far. It is comfortable, clean, equipped incredibly well, and is so cozy. We will make a point to return to your cabin.

This cabin was everything and more, a true luxury in the woods! Well supplied with cooking essentials, comfortable furniture, beautiful view! Internet access good, limited cell access though. Mother nature brought us a bear to watch one night so be sure to secure the garbage outside...they are pretty smart animals! A welcome surprise for us. We are adventure seekers so mountain biking, hiking, zip lining and white water rafting are all close by Many pamphlets in the cabin if you did not plan ahead. We got there the final week before season closing so plan accordingly. It also was important to us to come home to a hot tub and a comfortable place to relax after an action packed day. We also took a day to enjoy and shop in near by towns. Bottom line, I would stay here again. Do listen and follow instructions provided, arriving the first day during daylight hours was extremely helpful advise even if all went as planned!

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.
