On the deck, you can enjoy the aroma of the outside wood burning fireplace well into the evening.

With the view you`ll remember, Big Timber Lodge is conveniently located in Almond, just minutes from the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad in Bryson City and white-water rafting on the Nantahala River.

Our first cabin had a water issue so GSCR moved us to Big Timber Lodge and it was a dream. We loved sitting in the hot tub and watching the sunset. We enjoyed going to fontana Lake and the Oconoluftee River. We highly recommend both. We couldn't get enough of the view from this cabin.

Simply amazing. We rent cabins and houses around the world and this is by far one of the best. The view is amazing, the house beautiful but most important is the attention to detail. We felt very welcome and that somebody really cares about our experience.

Big Timber Lodge is a beautiful cabin with a great view of the lake. It's a perfect cabin for a family of six. We had three adult couples in our party. We always rent properties that have hot tubs. Great for relaxing and enjoying the view. We have rented from GSCR before, and our experience has always been good.

We loved our time here. It's such a relaxing place to stay with the beautiful views everywhere you look. We drove to the Road to Nowhere, Sylva and Bryson City and had a lovely time. We enjoyed our time in the Hot Tub and cooking delicious meals in the kitchen. It was a wonderful one year anniversary!

The Big Timber Lodge is a beautiful cabin with a stunning view! We enjoyed our stay very much. We watched the solar eclipse from the deck, rode the train, took in some sights in the National Park and visited Wayah Bald Tower. We went to Asheville one day as well. It was such a memorable experience.

27th Anniversary week. We always rent a cabin for 8 days. But this was by far the best view ever. 9 day stay, 8 days mountain biking Tsali and Jack Rabbit. Tradition to hit Kosta's in Sylva and Frymont Inn. Unlike other trips this one was spent mostly at the cabin rather then traveling the area. WE will certainly be back.

This is a beautiful luxury cabin with a great view of Fontana below. My favorite reasons for staying here more than once: paved roads that make it easy for travel, gated community that keeps the quad runners and wanderers out, cabins are spaced apart enough to offer a lot of privacy, it's a clean and spacious lodge that is very well maintained, the owners added additions and improvements between our two reservations, and the company that manages the rental is prompt and courteous when responding to any concerns. If I am ever lucky enough to have a cabin for my retirement, I hope it's half as nice as this one. Everything that you will need is included except for food. Shopping is close by in Bryson City, where you will find an Ingles and liquor store. What I love to do most here is start a wood burning fire in the outside fireplace and sit in the hot tub while staring at the stars in the night sky - an amazing thing to see with so little light pollution - like glitter dust in the sky. On the other side of the cabin, the owners extended the deck and added a fire pit with built in benches so family (or friends) can sit around the fire for an enjoyable evening. The kitchen is large and well appointed, there is a screened outside porch area that is great for a card game at night or breakfast in the mornings. Sleeping is either in the suite on the ground floor or the loft (2 bedrooms) above. I have recommended this lodge to many people - I even inquired about the property for sale a little bit above the lodge. Maybe some day. LOL You won't be disappointed at Big Timber Lodge. It's everything that I imagine a Smoky Mountain vacation should be.
