Big Timber Lodge has all the amenities for your perfect vacation: a fantastic view looking out to the Great Smoky Mountains and Fontana Lake, the hot tub on the deck, a full kitchen and more!
You'll love the all wood interior that gives Big Timber Lodge its name. The inside stone fireplace with gas logs illuminates the living room any time of year, and the leather sofas are great for relaxing and enjoying the Satellite HDTV or catching up with loved ones.

With rustic logs and a country quilt, the Master Bedroom has a King Bed. The Second and Third Bedrooms each have a Queen bed.

Enjoy the great outdoors to the fullest! Whether you're taking in the outstanding view from the deck, relaxing in the hot tub, or grilling your next meal, Big Timber Lodge is the place to be.
Breathe in the fresh mountain air and listen to the symphony of wind whispering through the trees and bird songs from the screened porch. The extra dining space is a great place for morning coffee.
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.

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.

We have enjoyed our stay at Big Timber Lodge! It is one of the prettiest cabins I have ever seen. I used to visit the Almond Boat Dock as a kid so it was nice to be able to show my kids the same boat dock. Fontana is a magical place for me and my family and Big Timber Lodge is perfection.

This is our 4th time staying at this cabin and we have loved having this little home away from home for a week every year. We visited Clingman's Dome, Deep Creek, The Ocoee River in Tennessee (for whitewater rafting, highly recommended), Cullasaja Falls, Asheville, and more! While staying here, we celebrated my boyfriends 21st and my parents 24th anniversary. The hot tub and wii are always a nice treat, as well as the fire pit. Always a good stay here. Until next time!
