The kitchen, dining room and main level living spaces flow together for a roomy, light, and open floor plan with plenty of windows, and a complete wall of glass that emphasizes the Stunning Mountain Views.
Solid surface countertops in the kitchen provide ample space for preparation and cooking. Additionally, the kitchen has been freshly updated with stainless steel appliances and is well stocked with everything you will need to prepare and serve your home cooked meals. For the Chef in the Family, Grilling out has never been this "View-licious"!
The living space has soaring ceilings, a stone gas log fireplace, unique Designer décor, luxurious updated furniture, and a large flat screen HDTV. Just a few steps from the kitchen is the main level’s full bathroom with ceramic tile, and a jetted tub. The laundry room offers a full size washing machine and dryer.
Proceed through the sliding doors, out onto the newly expanded gorgeous view deck - to the comfortable seating choices, and a Sparkling Hot Tub. Stepping into the soothing bubbles is convenient and easy as you set the mood with wonderful starry skies above in the night time, and layers of Captivating Mountain views during the day! When you are through relaxing in the Hot Tub, slip into one of the complimentary Bathrobes we provide for your use during your stay
A few steps from the Hot Tub deck will bring you to the Fire Pit, so bring the S'mores and brush up on those memory making fireside stories...
Kick back in one of the rocking chairs and enjoy your coffee as the fog lifts from the endless rolling mountains each morning. Immediately adjacent is the gas grill.
The porch provides plenty of seating and space for enjoying Nature, Dining Al Fresco, and grilling with friends and family.
Come back inside to explore the rest of the cabin including the main level bedroom which offers a Flatscreen TV, and a very comfortable and luxurious queen size bed (High quality Firm Mattress with a Luxury Top layer added for a Soft touch).
From the main room, journey up the staircase to the upstairs master bedroom! The Master Bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed (Firm Mattress with a Luxurious Top Layer for Sublime Comfort), and a private ensuite bathroom (renovated in 2023) with a shower, 3rd out of 3 Total satellite TV's, and more spectacular mountain views...
Ready for a game Shuffleboard? Head downstairs to the game table in the main living space area. This shuffleboard table is bound to provide hours of Fun and Entertainment for the entire Family!
Whether you are here to explore the numerous scenic drives, or to Kayak, go White water rafting, Zip lining, Tubing, Mountain Biking, Boating on Fontana Lake, Hike the trails, and more... "Mountain Time - At Sky Cove" will make you feel at home, and keep you coming back again and again!
"Mountain Time" does provide complimentary High Speed WiFi so you can work remotely and email your Friends and Family to let them know what a Great time you are having. UPDATE: "Mountain Time" is connected to the best area internet service that offers Unlimited Usage (unlimited internet usage is not readily available in rural areas so it is kind of a big deal in the mountains).
For your convenience, we offer a few tips and optional services:
... Also available is our 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 is primarily National Forest, Smoky Mountains, and Federally owned, so the Lake is never 'Busy', but the few available rental boats do get booked up.

I recently stayed 3 nights with myself and two teenage sons. We had an amazing trip. There really isn’t much I can say that hasn’t already been said, but I’ll say it anyway! The house was spotless. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean, neat and organized. We didn’t cook much, but they had everything you’d need. Beds were very comfortable and sheets freshly laundered. The hot tub was such a bonus! We did a lot of kayaking, hiking and tubing and it was perfect for all our tired and sore bodies at the end of a long day. It stays nice and cool on the top of the mountain, so it was never too warm outside for a night time soak. The new deck was where we spent most of our time! It was huge and cozy. Let me say, that photos can’t do that view justice. It never got old! We were visited by several deer and a beautiful gray fox came two nights in a row. The boys and I LOVED the shuffleboard table! After dinner each night we would have a few rounds and then go sit in the hot tub and look at the stars. One night we set our projector up and watched a movie outside. The drive up to the mountain….took a few years off my life the first time (I’m a 7th generation Floridian so flat ground is my norm), but it did get easier. It kinda reminded me of the same feeling you get on a roller coaster, you’re scared to death but can’t wait to do it again! It was paved and well maintained. I’ve been on much worse and it’s worth the drive. Rent it. You’ll be so glad you did!!!
We have been planning our US trip for nearly two years and high on our list of stopovers was the Smokey Mountains. We found Mountain Time on VRBO and it looked exactly what we were looking for. I have to say that it turned out to be everything we wanted it to be. Everything you need has been thought about. The facilities are fantastic. The property is really well maintained and has a really homely feel to it. The views are breathtaking and we miss them already. The owners should be very proud of what they have achieved with this beautiful home. Our time here will always hold a special place in our hearts.
My family and I were looking for a secluded place in the mountains for our spring break trip. This property was exactly what we needed. The house felt very secluded even though it shared the driveway with another property. During the evenings we’d sit around the fire and my kiddos (ages 7 and 3) enjoyed gathering sticks for kindling. Waking up every morning, looking out the A-framed windows from our bed was the best way to start the day. Kitchen was fully equipped and allowed us to enjoy meals at home. My little ones especially enjoyed the shuffle board table for a game or two before bed. The deck and fire pit area seemed brand new and was incredibly comfortable and secluded. I’m he views were everything. Located close to town and the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, this property really couldn’t be beat if you are looking for a mountain home with two beds and two baths with a stunning view.
Mountain Time was the best cabin we have rented. Great directions...no the drive up was not that steep! Especially appreciated the super firm bed. I have a bad hip and back and slept well every night. The view from the deck is outstanding. Could not stop taking photos. Thank you
The view is amazing and the cabin was perfect for our family of four.
We stayed in Bryson City over the weekend to attend my nephews wedding at The Parker Mill. Our cabin's view was just as beautiful as their mountain view for their vows. I thought the mountainous road was fun and adventurous and almost didn't want to even leave the cabin. The view is stunning and the hot tub tops off the experience.
Mountain Time just got connected to Super High Speed Internet/WiFi and usage is unlimited!
Incredible views! I proposed to my fiancé here and Kathleen was so accommodating and helpful in setting the perfect mood! We will remember this trip for the rest of our lives!
Mountain time was an amazing home to stay at!! It was so clean, had beautiful views, and allowed us the perfect opportunity to kick back and relax!! We appreciated all of the weather updates, kitchen amenities and the helpful home and town directions!! We loved the hot tub, indoor fire place and outdoor fire pit! This is a perfect place to get away!
Amazing view of the mountains. The hosts are very polite and attentive. If we had any questions they got back to us immediately. Would definitely love to go back
Worth a visit for sure! Cant beat the view!
Amazing view from the cabin. A great location to reach a lot of beautiful drives and hikes.
This cabin was great! The views were amazing. Kathleen’s place is very relaxing and cozy with the fireplace a perfect added feature. We enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen items for cooking! (Bring your own spices if you wish to cook!) We loved the welcome book with all the details necessary for our stay. We would absolutely stay again! Would highly recommend looking into staying during the fall to see all the beautiful colors and Mountain View’s from the cabin.
Excellent choice for 1 or 2 couples or small families. Hot tub, fire pit and breathtaking view, how can you beat that? Elegantly simple furnishing, everything provided we needed (wifi, coffee maker, quality satellite TV, etc.) Will definitely return!
Fantastic property! Comfortable and well decorated house! Mesmerizing view! Top notch stay!
This place is GORGEOUS! It is so much better than any expectation you may have. It brought tears to my eyes when I first saw the view of the mountains and listening to the birds singing. Waking up and seeing the sunrise from bed was unforgettable. We got a really nice fire going and stayed out there for hours. So private and peaceful. We only wish we had more time. Thank you for the perfect quarantine-cation.
Loved the house and loved the inspiring nature all around us! Would definitely stay here again.
This place has the best view! Great amenities and an amazing three level outdoor area with the same wonderful Mountain View. We loved the fire pit, patio table, hot tub and rockers/swings outside so we stayed outside for the most part. Beds were comfy and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. We even tried our skill at shuffleboard.
Our AirB&B cabin was amazing! It was everything we could have hoped for for our mini honeymoon. The cabin was cozy and had everything we needed for our stay. The fireplace, hot tub, fire pit, and incredible mountain views were all highlights. As was the lofted bedroom and shuffleboard table. Communication with co-host April was easy and she responded to our messages very quickly. My husband and I were already talking about when we'd be able to come back! Highly recommend!
This cabin is so gorgeous! We will definitely be back!!
Great Airbnb experience. Would stay here over and over
Had a great time , fresh snow made everything beautiful.
We went for my fiancées bday. It was very relaxing! We will be coming back!
Great views and no very far from the train ride in Bryson City
Absolutely stunning view! Beautiful cabin, very clean and welcoming!
Amazing stay!! A weekend is too short. We will definitely be back for another stay. The cabin is so gorgeous, the views from the loft room are so amazing. Enjoy the awesome hot tub or the fire pit! Super comfortable beds and perfect location.
The cabin is so amazing! The views from the house and porch are spectacular. From laying in bed in the loft looking out the window, to the couch, sitting on the deck, in the hot tub, or at the firepit, everywhere has a great view of the mountains. Cabin was clean and everything was as listed or better!
The cabin was beautiful and extremely clean. With all the amenities it felt like home to us. The Mountain View’s are spectacular. Watching the clouds moving below us was an interesting sight. We enjoyed the peaceful and secluded time we spent on the decks and fire pit area.
The directions we received to the cabin were excellent and easy to follow.
We would give it a 10 star rating if we could.
Will definitely be back.
Great view, great space and fun amenities. Definite recommendation
This place was spectacular!! We really enjoyed the view and town! Kathleen and her team did an excellent job on keeping us informed.
Great spot. Perfect for us!
Great view and great weekend with my little family to relax and just enjoy the scenery.
The cabin was terrific with wonderful views and was very clean. Loved our time here.
Great place and view.
The cabin is beautiful, views are stunning, and there was plenty to do, so you didn't have to leave the cabin if you didn't want to. The road up to it made me nervous with how steep it was, but it is up a mountain, so it is to be expected.
Response from Kathleen:
Hi Kayleigh, We are so glad to hear y’all enjoyed your Vacation, and this Beautiful Cabin. You are absolutely correct, you do have to “climb the mountain” to enjoy long range views, so you may as well do it on a paved and well maintained road (that is not all that steep:)
Beautiful Mountain Retreat. Everything we hoped it would be. Very relaxing which is just what we needed
Great time, very clean, helpful and friendly staff.
Great, scenic location! Beautiful views.
Absolutely spectacular, breathtaking views! It was obvious that the owners tried to provide everything that you might not consider bringing. It was such a great and relaxing getaway and only 2 1/2 hours from home! We definitely intend to come back!
We paid the same for this place as we did for a hotel, and we both prefer this place. We prefer the kitchen, and being alone. The privacy of our own place and making dinner at home, while sipping wine and watching the sun set in our own private area. Dipping in the hot tub, grilling our steaks, playing shuffleboard... these are just a few of our favorite things from this trip. We came to take the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, which we enjoyed, but we were ready to come home to our little mountain top
This property was exactly what we needed. If you want a view and comfortable accommodations this is your place. The company provided excellent service from the driving directions to the big information binder to the cleanliness of the facility. The location is a very easy drive to Bryson City but yet still feels secluded and quiet. We can’t wait until our next trip. We are already looking for dates to return. NC Mountian Realty kept us well informed from the time of the reservation to the day we checked out.
Location is amazing! Right outside Bryson City...close to town for stores, restaurants and attractions. The cabin is charming, clean and cozy. Beautiful views and peaceful setting. There are various outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, and rafting nearby as well as a casino in Cherokee that is only 15 minutes from the cabin. Gatlinburg and Asheville could be done in day trips from this cabin. I highly recommend this cabin and know we will visit again!
Beautiful property, with an amazing view.
Beautiful cabin with outstanding view. Well maintained and clean. Close to Nantahala rafting.
Thank you so much! We had a great time here. The house was clean and beautiful, inside and out. The view was spectacular and the hot tub on the back deck was perfect. We all had such a good time we'll definitely be back for a longer stay. One night is much too short a time to enjoy this home.
New ReviewThe cabin provided the perfect place for our weeklong getaway. The view is spectacular!! Coffee on the deck each morning brought ever-changing scenery. The kitchen had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and welcoming after a day's activities. We spent most of our time on the fabulous 3 tier deck enjoying the hot tub, rocking chairs, and fire pit. The cabin is close to the quaint town of Bryson City and lots of outdoor activities. I would definitely recommend this property!
If you like quiet serenity with amazing views, you will love Mountain Time. The cabin was cute, comfortable, clean, and everything the pictures show in the listing. The outdoor space is also well-furnished, comfortable, and has those spectacular views. We loved eating and shopping in Bryson City, hiking in the park, and whitewater rafting all within 20 minutes of Mountain Time. Great experience!
We were looking for a secluded, clean, getaway with views of the mountains. Mountain Time delivered! We will be back!
Do stay here. Its a wonderful place to stay.
Mountain View was outstanding. Located on a beautiful mountain in the Smokies with a fabulous view. Everything was clean and in working order. We used the fireplace and the shuffleboard indoors along with the whirlpool and firepit outdoors. The cabin was stocked with everything you need except food and beverage.
The location is 15 minutes from Bryson City and 25 minutes from the zip lines, rafts, trains and jeep adventures. The drive up to the cabin is an adventure in itself.
This house was amazing. Great location in the mountains and super clean with hot tub and shuffle board to play. Very relaxing weekend. Would definitely recommend.
Amazing view and space. Very private feel but only 10 min or so from Bryson city. Loved it!!
We stayed at Mountain Time for three days last week and had such a relaxing time. The open fire pit overlooking the awesome view of the Smokies was all I needed! The cabin was clean, well equipped and filled with charm. We enjoyed the hot tub when the weather permitted and the game table when the rains came. Bryson City has a lot to offer as well... the Railroad trip, great restaurants, hiking at Deep Creek Park (with three awesome waterfalls). We'll make this our future spot!
The cabin was very clean and great amenities including TV, WiFi, shuffleboard, gas grill, etc. We enjoyed making s'mores with the fire pit and soaking in the hot tub. It was very close to river rafting and downtown Bryson City.
Beautiful Setting Close to Bryson City
We enjoyed our stay at Mountain Time and plan to come back in the fall. The cabin is close to everything in Bryson City, as well as the GSMNP, Nantahala, and Fontana Lake. Home was furnished nicely with HD Tv's and free wifi.
This place is amazing! The view is magnificent from the fire pit and hot tub. The back yard is private and peaceful. The blankets on both beds were amazing (I actually got online and ordered the exact same one for myself already)! It had everything we could possibly need, especially for cooking all of our meals. Clean, beautiful, and relaxing! Communications were easy and thoughtful. Will definitely be staying here again!
Amazing time with excellent views! Quiet, secluded and so relaxing for a nice weekend get away!! The people are friendly, the owners are amazing and will definitely be back!
We had such a great time in this cabin! The views were amazing, and it was great to be able to hike to waterfalls with just a 15 - 20 minute drive!
One of the best properties we’ve stayed at over many years of visiting the Smokey’s!
We loved every minute of our stay at Mountain Time. The house is perfect offering a fully stocked kitchen and even robes for the hot tub! We love the NC Mountains and will definitely be back. Thank you for an amazing experience.
Wonderful Mountain View and we were there around peak season for the leaves changing. Will definitely stay again. Great proximity to Bryson City, National parks and hiking.
Clean and comfortable. I highly recommend even though I should keep it a secret! 😉
Clean and comfortable. I highly recommend even though I should keep it a secret! 😉
Absolutely beautiful cabin with all the amenities and views you could ever want! Our 6 year old son loved it too!!
We really loved the view and quietness.
A new nice cabin on the mountain top with all needs considered. The deck and the interior have the nice view of the valley and the mountains. Everything worked out as expected, or better. Read the invitation mail for the correct driving direction, I did not do that and ended up on the other side of the mountain, no harm done but a bit of confusion for a minute. 15-20 min drive down to Bryson City. Boat rentals available and fishing in the rivers or on the lake. Hiking in the Smokie Mountain Natianal park. All in all a very nice alternative!
Nicely remodeled and beautiful views. Well equipped kitchen and all the amenities that u could desire. Quiet and peaceful.
Our stay at Mountain Time was wonderful, and a nice break from the hustle and bustle. The Owner/Manager did a wonderful job providing the things one might need while being away from home- down to bathrobes for the hot tub! We enjoyed playing shuffleboard and dominos during the rainy times. Travel to Bryson City was 15 minutes give or take, as well as our trip to Nantahala Outdoor Center. Highly recommend the local breweries and a pizza at Anthony's! We definitely plan to return.
