Property Details

Enjoy your Peacefully Private Oasis - Gathering round the Fire Pit, Soaking in the Sparkling Hot Tub, and taking in the Beautiful Views. All while being 10 min. from the Lake/River, within 15 minutes of Bryson City, the N.O.C. the Tsali, and more...

Upon entering Mountain Oasis, you are Greeted by the Warmth of the Wood Interior and Glass along the entire Wall, bringing in the Mountain View’s and the Beautiful Natural surroundings.

Throughout the Cabin, the beautiful Views are enhanced by the Designer Cabin Decor, Warm Wood Walls and Flooring. The Main level of the Cabin offers step free access, and there is a smooth concrete path from the covered parking area (carport) to the front door. This level offers a well appointed Kitchen with Granite counter tops, stainless appliances, and everything you will need to prepare and serve all of your meals. Additionally, there is a Jr. Master Suite, which offers a Queen Bed with several pillow choices, luxury linens and bedding, pillow top mattress, and a full bathroom (shower/tub combo).
The Living room offers very comfortable Leather Furniture for you to Relax and Cozy up in front of the Stone Fireplace. Additionally, there is a Large Flat screen TV with an upgraded variety of Satellite Channels to choose from.
Adjacent to the Kitchen, you will enjoy a Spacious and Unique Circular Dining Room which is surrounded by Glass, and offers a unique "Lazy Susan" style dining table. Plenty of Seating for your entire group!

A few steps down stairs will lead you to a very Large Master Suite with a second gas Fireplace, flat screen TV, and a Luxuriously Romantic King "sleigh bed" (with a pillow top mattress), that is perfectly positioned to wake to the Sunrise Mountain Views... There is a full bathroom (Tiled Shower with bench seat), and doors leading to the Sparkling Hot Tub. Two Bathrobes are provided for your use during your stay.

Just off the Master Suite is a media room with a large flat screen TV, Gaming system, and a Queen size Futon.
The Outdoor Fire-pit offers ample seating for your group to Roast Marshmallows, Relax, Star Gaze, and make Magical Memories...

We are available to assist you, and offer a few optional convenience services:

... Shopping service. If you would like to arrive at the Cabin with your Groceries already stocked, ask for details, we will have everything waiting for you upon your arrival.

... If you would like to enjoy a Spa Massage Service at the Cabin, it is a good idea to book in advance to assure availability. Your Professional Massage Therapist will come to you, so when you are done, they quietly disappear and leave you to relax!

... If your vacation dates are during 'Season' or Holidays and you plan to rent a pontoon or fishing boat, it may be a good idea to reserve in advance. Lake Fontana and the shore line is primarily Nantahala National Forest, or is part of The Great Smoky Mountain National Park, which is Federally owned, so the Lake is never 'Busy', but the few available rental boats do get booked up.

Note: Complimentary WiFi is best suited for emailing, browsing the web, keeping up with Social Media, etc... not for Streaming Movies/Music/Large File transfers (There are Music Channels on all 3 T.V.'s as well as an extensive channel selection).

We Offer "Contact Free" Check In/Out

Our Pet Policy Overview:

10 out of 12 of our Cabins are Pet Friendly. Our Pet acceptance varies, and is based on the amount of space for our 4 legged Guests to enjoy (inside the Cabin as well as the amount of space outdoors).

Our goal is to make sure no one can tell that there has been a pet on the premises. Please call or email us to ask about our pet policies as they relate to your request.

Ideally located approximately 10 minutes from Lake Fontana ("Finger Lake" Beach and Day Use Area on the Lake) and Almond Boat Rentals and Marina. A few more minutes to the East, and you can be dining and shopping in Bryson City. Through Bryson City is Deep Creek (Tubing, Hiking Trails with Beautiful Waterfalls, PicNic Area with Facilities). A few more minutes to the West and you can be Kayaking, Whitewater Rafting, Zip Lining, Horseback Riding, etc... at the N.O.C. (Nantahala Outdoor Center).

Cancellation Policy

Our Cancellation Policy "In a nutshell": 
​Each cabin is individually Owned and typically is the only property the specific Owner has to offer for rent. When a Guest occupies time on this Owner's calendar, then has to cancel the reservation, the property may remain empty. Although we empathize with your emergency, it really is not fair to "transfer" your financial hardship to the property Owner.
* Travelers/Cancellation Insurance will be offered at the time you reserve the cabin. If cancelling or encountering an unfortunate emergency  is a concern for you, We highly recommend you purchase this Insurance. Travelers Insurance is a "per reservation" policy, not a "per person" policy, and covers much more than just cancellations. To learn more now, go to itravelinsured. The cost is approximately 6.95% of the total.

FULL REFUND - Cancellations that are made more than sixty (60) days prior to the arrival date. (Less the greater of 5% or $75.00 Cancellation/Modification Fee)
50% REFUND - Cancellations with over 30 days Notice (Less the greater of 5% or $75.00 Cancellation/Modification Fee)
Cancellations that are made within 30 days of the arrival date, or changes that result in a shortened stay, forfeit the full advance payment and reservation deposit. Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent, however, Credit will be Offered to Guests in good standing, for cancelled dates that are re-rented. 

COVID-19 PROVISION: In the event Swain County would implement Travel Restrictions, or Closes Short Term Rentals, we will offer to reschedule reservations to within 1 year. Modification/Change Fee will be waived. Covid-19 Cleaning Policies and Procedures will be emailed to all Guests, prior to arrival. *Cleaning Products are EPA Regulated *Cleaning Procedures are per CDC Guidelines.

Deposit Policy

50% is Paid at the time of reserving the cabin. Balance is paid 60 days prior to check in. (To request an exception/alternate payment arrangement, please contact us).

***Book 6 nights and the 7th night is Free! NOTE: For reservations of 2 weeks or more, mid-stay Cleaning will need to be added at a discounted rate.

"Beautiful getaway"

by Sue


What an amazing view and beautiful getaway. Well decorated, clean and spacious! The clear directions prepare us for arrival. They proactively communicated so I didn’t have questions. We had what we needed and more. We are thinking of reasons to return.


by Sarah


We had a quiet and relaxing weekend, as hoped. The view was great and the tree cover made the home feel private. We enjoyed hiking in the area, and our trip to Bryson City, which is very quaint.

Pro tips: Try not to arrive in the dark, the mountain roads are narrow and twisty.

"Ideal Location"

by Michael


We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at Mountain Oasis. The cabin had all the amenities that we could have ever needed, and featured a spectacular view! It had the ideal location, with close proximity to Fontana Lake, Tsali, NOC, Bryson City, and more. We would love to come back!


by Sandra


This place was absolutely gorgeous! Super clean, GORGEOUS views, had everything we needed from pots and pans, k-cup machine and coffee maker, easy check in and out. Ample amounts of towels, Internet available (like they said, basic internet, nothing fast). Was able to even drink yummy water from the tap which I don’t like drinking usually when I go out of town. All together a great experience and I can’t wait to hopefully go back one day!


by Anne


Beautiful view, lovely house, perfect for our family of four. We enjoyed drinking coffee on the deck each morning and relaxing in the hot tub in the evening after a day of rafting or hiking. Communication and check in was easy. We hope to come back again!

"Loved the View"

by Corrine


Overall, this was difficult to rate.
Million dollar view-5
The home itself--5 (very beautiful home!)

"Great place"

by Kerry


This cabin was perfect. It had everything we needed and more for our escape to the woods. Everything was clean and in working order and the check in/out process was easy. We were also happy we could bring our dog with us. Its just far enough away from the National Park to avoid the large crowds, but close enough to Bryson City where you can enjoy the small town vibes and restaurants. Overall, it was a great experience and we'd recommend it to anyone.

"Spacious and Clean"

by Hilary


What an amazing cabin with incredible views! The cabin was so spacious and clean! We had such a great time there and would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking to stay in the mountains for a peaceful getaway!

"Mountain Oasis"

by Nancy


Easy contact-less check in and check out. The place was beautiful! Great views of the mountain. Kitchen was well stocked with just about every appliance you would need to cook. Nice quiet peaceful stay. The house was just as depicted on Vrbo. If you want privacy this is the place for you.

"Super Clean"

by Peyton


The place was super clean and exactly as advertised. They had everything stocked and ready for us as soon as we got there. They had even turned the hot tub on so it was already warm for our stay!


by Katherine


I don’t normally leave reviews, but this place was amazing for my husband & our child! It was so clean & the beds were SO comfortable! The hot tub was also very relaxing, we will be staying here again.

by Erin


Wonderful place!

"10 out of 10"

by Summer


10 out of 10 recommend. Very clean, seamless booking process , very responsive team, & a peaceful/private location. The views all around, even just getting there were incredible. It was home away from home, a mini romantic getaway, even with us not being there for long. We would definitely recommend this to anyone, & will be returning ourselves!!

"Peace and quiet"

by Ellis


This property was as advertised! Very clean, well looked after and spectacular views. It was in a somewhat remote area, but peace and quiet was what we were looking for. Communication with the host was easy, instructions were detailed. Bryson City, and surrounding amenities were easily accessible and the drive was alway scenic. Watching fireflies at dusk while sitting in the hot tub or walking the dog was an added bonus! We loved our stay at Mountain Oasis!

"Wonderful stay"

by Tennille


We had a wonderful stay, the cabin was spotless and the view breath taking! We will absolutely return for our next visit.

"Highly recommended"

by Heather


We loved our time at this cabin! We were meeting up with family, and this was a great location for exploring the quieter side of the Great Smoky Mountains. We had tasty treats in Bryson City, took short hikes to beautiful waterfalls where we splashed our feet in the river, and the farm museum at the park entrance got rave reviews from the toddler in our party. The cabin itself was clean and comfortable—both couples had enough space to themselves so we never felt crowded, but there was also lots of comfortable communal space for hanging out together. Kathleen was super helpful and promptly answered all of our questions. Highly recommended!

"Perfect location"

by Courtney


Perfect location, beautiful views and lots of amenities. We loved our stay at this cabin and will definitely be back.

"Perfect spot"

by Hailey


My wife and I stayed in this beautiful cabin a few days after our wedding. This place was the perfect spot to unwind and relax. The Mountain View’s are amazing, perfect location. Hot tub was a great added bonus. We will definitely be back!


by Joe


This cabin is so beautiful and in an amazing location! Very private but not totally isolated. The cabin is up a private gated drive and has a great view across to the mountains. The home was real cozy and we enjoyed bringing our 4 legged doggie daughter with us! Gatlinburg is a nice drive up the road and Bryson city is a really nice little town with plenty of things to do! We look forward to returning!!

"Wonderful stay"

by Paige


We had a wonderful stay in Bryson City, and had a terrific time exploring Nantahala National Forest. Would definitely stay here again!

"True mountain oasis"

by Susan


This cabin is a true mountain oasis! The place/view is even more beautiful in person than in the pictures! We went on this trip with another couple and our golden retriever and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their vacation. The amenities were wonderful and the house was extremely clean. Also, the cabin is in a great location. We were able to go on some great hiking trails and visit some cute local breweries! I highly recommend the mountain oasis!!!

"Great communication"

by Neel


Great communication, great value, amazing place with an amazing view and all the privacy we needed. The pictures do not do the inside or outside of this place justice and we were blown away as soon as we walked in. It's within a beautiful town with breathtaking views every turn you make, and has fascinating history, with tons to do nearby. Will book again.

by Kimberly


Wonderful place!

"Beautiful cabin"

by Karen


Beautiful cabin, well stocked, beautiful views!!!!! The description is very accurate.

"Wonderful downstairs master bedroom"

by Justin


From the moment you open the front door you are in a true mountain oasis. I surprised my girlfriend with a long weekend for her birthday. Not only did it not disappoint, it far exceeded any expectation we had set. From the balcony, to the beautiful open upstairs, to the wonderful downstairs master bedroom, the hot tub, gaming room, and fire pit. It was all top tier. You truly don't need to leave the cabin! If you do, check out the food truck scene. The rice wagon was divine. Can not recommend Kathleen's cabin enough. If you are looking for a getaway off the grid look no further. It was a truly a magical experience from start to finish.

by Kayla


Fantastic home, gorgeous views and all the amenities were provided. Highly recommend and plan to book through Kathleen again!

by Kimberly


Very well kept and clean. Check in and directions to place were very clear. The views are amazing and loved just hanging at the place. Also close to day trips and hiking. Can’t wait to go back.

by Keila


This was the perfect place to spend our one-year anniversary! The cabin was luxurious and comfortable, the views were spectacular, and we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after a day hiking or horseback riding. I highly recommend sleeping with the curtains open so you can wake up to a gorgeous view of the mountains from your bed!

by Victoria


The Pictures of the Mountain View truly does not do it justice. Also the cabin! So beautiful! Impeccable views from the lower bedroom to wake up to every morning. The cabin is spacious and very clean! We loved the personal touch of a little journal you can write your experiences in! The entire cabin just felt like home with the adorable decor. They provide you with everything you need for laundry, kitchen, toiletries, towels, etc. You are provided very detailed instructions about how to get to the cabin and contacts in case. You are also provided detailed check in/our instructions which makes the process seamless. We were given lists of fun activities and I would suggest take advantage because Bryson City has so much to offer and we greatly enjoyed everything we did off of the list! I was met with only kindness and fast responses to any questions. I hope I’m not forgetting anything because I can’t say enough how amazing this was for our honeymoon!

"Quiet and Remote Cabin"

by William C.


The property was clean, well maintained and stocked for an extended stay. Everything was as advertised. The location compared to the local destinations was a perfect tipping point as it was right in the middle of everything we wanted to do. A great place in N.C. to get some peace and quiet.

by Robert


Just got done with a couples trip to Kathleen's mountain cabin and it did not disappoint. Her team was super accommodating and the bnb exceeded our expectations. Will definitely be rebooking again.

by Jamie and Eric


Kathleen's cabin was perfect for our family's vacation! It was easy to find, beds were comfy, and the view from the Master was wonderful! The location was great for any activity you wish to pursue; hiking/MTB/swimming, etc. Very close to Almond Marina/Fontana Lake for kayaking/SUP or jet ski rental. NOC was about a 15 minute drive from the cabin. Currently, the facility has a mask ordinance, so don't forget to bring one. Joyce Kilmer and the Tail of the Dragon are approx. 30-35 min drive. Plenty to do in this area, and there weren't the huge crowds you see in the Smokies. We will definitely be back. As an fyi, this cabin area was super quiet also, especially in the morning, which was lovely! Thanks Kathleen 🙂

by Cate


While friends and I have been keeping strict guidelines with covid19 safety, we felt very safe to relax in being at this mountain oasis. Spent most of our time on the back porch soaking up the sun and view and also enjoying the lake. While the inside of this stay was quite wonderful and felt very safe in terms of the cleanliness and distancing from one another (Still have to stay safe inside). We were able to just enjoy each others company in the common spaces and separate rooms. We loved the black bear theme and the beds are super comfy. Really great place.

by Joanne


Beautiful home with spectacular views

by Matt A.


I saw other reviews where they said the cabin seemed larger than advertised and this is true. We enjoyed the cabin and found it very comfortable. The full moon and sunrise views from the master bedroom were great. The dining area and tv room also had wonderful views. This is the most comfortable cabin we have stayed at. The mattress in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable also.

by Andie


Kathleen has made an excellent space to feel like a true getaway! There are multiple board games in a cabinet, kitchen is fully stocked in order to make any meal and a great book full of suggestions and recommendations in the area. Can’t wait to return to this cabin or another with more family/friends to share it with! 🙂

"Relaxing Weekend"

by Lindsay S


My husband and I had a very relaxing weekend at this cabin. We enjoyed exploring Bryson City and Cherokee, then hanging at the cabin in the evenings. The cabin is actually bigger than I expected! We even got a little dusting of snow during our stay.

"Beautiful cabin, great location, very relaxing!!"

by Jackie D


The cabin was comfortable, the location was great, private, we had an amazing vacation, I would recommend the Avanti massages also! The ladies were very professional and good at what they do!

by Blake


Don't hesitate, book this one already!!

"Mountain Oasis great getaway"

by Caroline B


This property was exactly as described. It had everything needed for a great weekend getaway. We had a great time and appreciated the attention to detail.

"Best cabin ever"

by Regina Y.


We have rented several cabins over the years and this one is on the top of the list. The view was spectacular.

by Valery


There is no better place to stay than at the mountain oasis!! We spent the day white water rafting and tubing and at night we could cook s’mores, play games, or get in the hot tub!! Would recommend and we can’t wait to go back!! Amazing experience for our first time using Airbnb!

"Great mountain getaway"

by Christopher W


My family and I had a great time staying at the Mountain Oasis. Thank you.

by Ralph


Exactly as advertised. Beautiful expansive home well furnished and decorated. Amazing mountain views with in a secluded natural environment. We will definitely be back!

by Katy D.


This cabin is gorgeous! The photos in the listing do not do this place justice! We enjoyed s'mores around the fire pit and watching the sunrise and set from the back porch. It is also a great location! You are within 20 mins in either direction of fun things to do at the Nantahala Natl. Forest, Bryson City, And Of course the Great Smoky Mtn. Natl. Park. Make sure to go tubing if you go during the summer months!
Would definitely recommend staying here.

"Better than Advertised"

by Kylie


We loved our time together this weekend. The cabin has a gorgeous views and is very comfortable.
It is located convenient distance to many things but you feel a million miles away when sitting on the back deck. We look forward to staying here again. Thanks!
