We really enjoyed our Christmas vacation at Native Winds. The cabin is just as described with stunning views. Nicely equipped and some great added touches to make things comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised to find a terrific Christmas tree in the living area upon our arrival. Hope to return soon!
The Perfect Place
by Brandon B
We had the most wonderful time and enjoyed our stay so much. It was perfect for the 2 couples and one 10 year old. There’s a bathroom on each floor to accompany the sleeping arrangements. The home is set up so you have the perfect amount of comradery along with your privacy.
The views were stunning, the fire pit, which we spent most of out time at, was perfect. The kitchen was well equipped and the home was very clean.
The proximity to Bryson City was great...an easy run into town. GPS worked for us but you would be well advised to print the directions. It’s a very fun ride up the mountain!
Thank you for sharing your home with us. We are already planning a return trip in the spring!
The house was well maintained and very comfortable furniture and bedding.
The house was well maintained and very comfortable furniture and bedding. Beautiful view with sunrises over the mountains. We loved hearing the train whistle in the valley below. There is another house next door but the layout is very private.
by Chandra B
This property has the view that goes on and on. Private, yet close to Bryson City. Can't wait to return!
Great Mountain Home!
by Dan W
This was my 3rd trip to this particular mountain home and as always, Kathleen and her team have done an amazing job at maintaining the property in excellent condition. The home is well appointed, extremely clean and first class to say the least.
The reservation process is seamless and the responses to any questions I've had were answered almost immediately. I cannot recommend this property or Kathleen's team highly enough.

Native Winds cabin was PERFECT in every way.
Located up a steep mountain road, the views are breathtaking.
The cabin was equipped for everything, with a fire pit and firewood, full kitchen, laundry, bbq grill and tools, hot tub, and wonderfully comfortable beds.
Heat / AC weren’t needed during our stay, but were working.
We visited with our kids, ages 8 and 3, who liked the upstairs loft with games, foosball table, etc.
Located a short drive to Bryson City, Nantahala, and Smoky Mountains.
We went river rafting, hiking, took the railroad, went fishing and tubing.
Eat at 1101 Steakhouse if you have a chance.
Beautiful view! Sweet hot tub!
by David Z.
Property is clean and very well furnished. Great views from the two large decks. Excellent firepit. Master bedroom is large. Nice game room
Mountain Top Retreat
by Mary C.
We rented Native Winds for a long weekend in the NC mountains. We loved every minute of our stay. Fantastic house and we enjoyed exploring the area.
Wow. This was by far the most beautiful and special cabin we’ve ever stayed in. The views are absolutely stunning and the cabin is luxurious and spotless. Loved the hot tub on the balcony, comfortable living room, and full-sized kitchen. Would definitely stay here again!
Perfect Cabin, Perfect Location, Perfectly Immaculate!
We absolutely LOVED our time at Native Winds and Adorable Bryson City! We arrived after dark, so when we woke up and saw the Views surrounding us, we were Awe-Struck!
The Cabin had everything we could have wished for (except Beach towels, so bring your own). Everything was very clean, we were about 10-15 minutes from town, and the Hot Tub was Great. Peaceful and very Private!
We spent most of our time staying at the Cabin, but we did get out to explore the shops and restaurants in Bryson City and the Nantahala Outdoor Center. The N.O.C. is an Outdoor Mecca and our WW Rafting trip was Epic! We bought tickets to go Zip Lining 1/2 day, and Rafting 1/2 day. (In our case, you could nickname it the “Zip and Flip”)...
We will be back!
Couldn't be happier!!!
by Ronnekia A.
We rented the cabin for our honeymoon. Neither of us ever stayed in the mountains before so we didn't know what to expect, but it was beyond our expectations!! We loved it!! Enjoyed every minute!!! Don't even think hard about it. The price was reasonable and everything was F***ing awesome!! GO!! GO!! GO!!
My wife and I (and our dogs) visited this cabin for an extended weekend getaway.
My wife and I (and our dogs) visited this cabin for an extended weekend getaway. Truthfully, we aren't regular "mountain-goers" but we wanted a change of pace. Very much glad we decided on this place. I can think of only positive things to say about it - the view is amazing, the house was clean and comfortable, and the hosts were great! I would recommend it to anyone. A few other points that others might find helpful based on other reviews, etc.: - The drive up to the cabin really isn't bad, especially after you've done it the first time. - There is a cabin nearby but the amenities (hot tub, porches, fire pit, etc) are very private. There were guests at the other cabin when we were there but can't say I ever saw or heard them. - Bryson City is closer than I anticipated. It's a short drive to downtown where there is plenty of dining and shopping. We would have planned to spend more time out and about had we done a better job of scouting in advance. Again, this is a great place with great hosts. We visited in the spring but the view and the amenities make it ideal for all seasons. Can't wait to get back!
This is a beautiful cabin with breathtaking mountain views!

Thank you Kathleen and all those involved in our winter wonderland vacation to Native Winds. From the moment we arrived at the cabin, every detail was planned out with meticulous care. From the lavish decoration, comforts of warm cozy beds and fireplaces lent to a memory that will last a lifetime. Our excursions into the city, great Smoky Mountains, and all the people from Bryson city lent to a peaceful and tranquil winter paradise. My wife, two boys had smiles on their faces morning, noon and night. Thank you for giving us a week away from the hustle and bustle of city life to a place where time seemed to go back where all was simple. The things most important, spending time with family, talking and enjoying each other‘s company. We look forward to coming back in the years to come hoping to capture some of that Mountain magic from 2018
Fantastic Cabin with a Stellar View
by Caroline A.
This cabin is 100%. We vacationed here the second to last weekend in September, and while still hot during the days, the mornings were crisp and cool, making coffee drinking on the porch optimal. Not to mention the absolutely astounding view. The fog/clouds are low in the morning and we had such a wonderful time watching them slowly roll by before the sun came up. The cabin itself was great - it was clean and well equipped. Getting up to it for the first time was definitely an exciting ride; but oh so worth it. Our family will 100% be returning!
We had an amazing time!
by Dana S.
We had an amazing time! The home was beautiful with amazing views sunrise to sunset. Our vacation became structured around making sure we woke up and came back to the house in time to see the incredible Mountain View’s. We have been to many other homes but this one was our favorite!!!
Top of the mountain!!!
by Alan J.
Spectacular views!! So peaceful and relaxing!! Kathleen and her team at NC Mountains Realty provide the excellent service and security that is seldom found in our world today!
Beautiful views, lovely home, great communication, easy checkin/checkout.

We loved the convenience of this cabin - located close to Bryson City and within minutes of Cherokee.

We loved the convenience of this cabin - located close to Bryson City and within minutes of Cherokee. The cabin is well-furnished, comfortable, and very well-cleaned. It was equipped with everything we needed for a 5-day stay. We would highly recommend and plan to return!
We are a family of 6 and really enjoyed our stay here // the view was better than advertised!
We are a family of 6 and really enjoyed our stay here // the view was better than advertised! Had everything we needed in the kitchen and baths, grill and fire pit! Would stay again 😉
We had a wonderful visit.
We had a wonderful visit. It snowed at our cabin looking over the Smoky Mountains but we got a few clear sunny days. The place had amazing views! So staying busy by soaking in the hot tub, looking over the valley while it snowed and hawks flew about eye-level above the tree-tops was a special treat. The place was warm and cozy inside, the fireplaces were particularly enjoyable and the kitchen worked very well for family meals. Bryson City is a small town with some very wonderful gems, next time we would take more time to enjoy the local shops, restaurants and coffee shops but this trip for us was more about the mountains. It was a short drive into the Smoky Mountains from the cabin and we really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were *very* responsive for the few questions we had during our stay. Thanks so much!
The cabin was fantastic and the view was priceless.
by Michael D.
The cabin was fantastic and the view was priceless. It had great amenities and the 1st snowfall of the year was absolutely a beautiful winter wonderland.
We had a wonderful time.
by Olivia J.
We had a wonderful time. The house was absolutely perfect and everyone had enough space, but yet we could also be all together and have a nice get together. The house had everything you could need or ask for. We really enjoyed the fire pit, game loft, hot rub and spending time on the porch looking at the amazing views both at sunrise and sunset. We are already planning another time to come back!
We enjoyed a long weekend at Native Winds and were so sad to leave.
by Anne Marie K.
We enjoyed a long weekend at Native Winds and were so sad to leave. We had such a positive experience and working with Kathleen was effortless. She was attentive and answered a question I had about the hot tub within minutes of my email. The house was immaculate and well equipped. Everything was in perfect working order. The house is in a great central location to Bryson City and the Nantahala River which was our focus this trip. There were 4 of us this time but 6 could comfortably stay in the house. It has a great floor plan and the views from the decks are spectacular. I will admit the first time we drove up the switchback road, I was very nervous but by the second trip, we were comfortable and didn't give it a another thought. The only way to enjoy those mountain views are by being brave enough to drive up that mountain and boy is it worth it!! I think of Native Winds often and we can't wait to return!
This was the perfect cabin retreat!
by Barbara D.
This was the perfect cabin retreat! The cabin itself is quaint and comfortable. Spacious enough for a family of six, yet ideal for a romantic getaway for a couple, it is a versatile accomodation. There were five in our party, two adults, one -big- child, two small pets and we loved it! The view is breathtaking. I miss enjoying my coffee on the porche in the morning. It was worth every penny!
This cabin is centrally located to many day adventure activities: tubing, hiking, shopping, rafting, ziplining, fishing, etc.
by Angie G.
This cabin is centrally located to many day adventure activities: tubing, hiking, shopping, rafting, ziplining, fishing, etc. it is also the perfect cabin to relax and read a book. We enjoyed the beautiful view from the porch both day and night. A huge thank you to Ms. Ford and the owners for promptly obtaining ESPN so that we could enjoy the College World Series after an exhilarating hike up to Gregory Bald! My family of varying ages all enjoyed our week together. We hope to return next year!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Native Winds.
by Barbara D.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Native Winds. Well worth the windy mountain road to get to this cabin. Everything we could possibly need for our stay was provided and it was very comfortable. There were only 4 of us but could easily accommodate 6 or 8. Hot tub, fireplaces and grill were nice added bonuses. Conveniently located near the Great Smoky National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway and Nantahala recreation area. Also close to several good restaurants and grocery store. NC Mountain Realty was a pleasure to work with and very responsive.
Our family had such a nice time that we stayed an extra day!
Our family had such a nice time that we stayed an extra day! We were blown away by the view upon our arrival to the cabin. It was spacious and clean with all the necessities. We enjoyed venturing into town with the kids, eating at a few local places, and cooking meals in as well. Loved the fire places and the hot tub was very relaxing at the end of the day. Thank you and we look forward to coming back soon!
The cabin is wonderful.
by Matthew L.
The cabin is wonderful. Clean and equipped for just about anything. View was spectacular and the weather was exactly what we hoped for. We comfortably fit six and our four kids loved every minute of our stay. We can't wait to go back!
We had such a fun time for our first mountain weekend as a family of 4.
by Laurel F.
We had such a fun time for our first mountain weekend as a family of 4. We have two small children (ages 1 and 3) and wanted to do the Polar Express train ride in Bryson City. Native Winds is a beautiful and clean cabin. We loved how there was a decorated Christmas tree and lights on the balcony. Even the table was festively set with Christmas dishes. The feel was very warm and inviting. The drive into town was short and we got to see a lot of wildlife on the drive from the cabin to the main road. Our 3 year old loved that! The master downstairs was so nice with its own fireplace and porch to enjoy the view. We had such an amazing time we plan on making this trip to the mountains an annual tradition.
Everything about this cabin and property is excellent; location and access to outdoor recreation, smokey mountain views, clean, cozy, and comfortable.
Everything about this cabin and property is excellent; location and access to outdoor recreation, smokey mountain views, clean, cozy, and comfortable. Just exploring the roads that weave around the Sky Cove property lead to different magificent views. The booking and payment processes were smooth and easy - and the property manager responded very quickly to our inquiries. We would definetely rent this cabin again if we vacation in Bryson City in the future. There is another cabin located directy next door, but thankfully our neighbors were very quiet
Great floor plan with beautiful views.
by Amanda C
Great floor plan with beautiful views. The cabin was beautifully decorated in a rustic theme. Granite counter tops, two fire places, wood floor, 3 full bathrooms. It has a huge master bedroom on the lower floor, second bedroom on the main level and a loft with a pull out bed. Cabin has wifi, cable and a washer/dryer. The road to the cabin is steep at times but we had no problem with our van. We loved this cabin and can't wait to come back to visit. You will love this cabin!!!!
by Martin B
Fantastic Cabin. The three of us stayed in this wonderful cabin/chalet, the view from the upper deck was spectacular! The cabin was very clean and well equipped with linens. We enjoyed time in the hot tub and also had two nights by the fire pit. The location is great, far enough to "get away" but close enough to Bryson City for groceries and dining.

Better than we Imagined, and that is saying a lot!
by Mike and Barbara
Better than we Imagined, and that is saying a lot! The drive to the Cabin was an adventure, and well worth it when we arrived and saw the Unbelievable Mountain Ranges! The only thing that compared to the views was relaxing in the hot tub at night, the stars filled the Sky and the fire flies twinkled around us. It was truly Magical!
Coming to such a beautiful place such as this really makes you start to do some self reflecting, remembering what life is about, Laughing, making wrong turns, Visiting places you've never been, and being able to see things you have never seen before.

Thank You for much for sharing this wonderful Cabin and Amazing Views with us! The kids spent most of our "cabin time" around the fire pit, and want to stay forever!
Our week didn't turn out as planned, It was Better!
by Ashley and Shaun
Our week didn't turn out as planned, It was Better! We left stormy and HOT weather and arrived to enjoy a Beautiful and relaxing Mountain Get a way! We went to the Biltmore Estate (those Vanderbilt's know how to live it up), went zip lining, rafting, and relaxing. At the Tsali, we saw a Black Bear! We had a Magnificent Time at this Lovely and Romantic Mountain Cabin!
