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.

Great location! Great view! Immaculately clean! Easy Check-in!
Great mountain getaway spot with amazing views. by Madelaine 02/01/2021
Great mountain getaway spot with amazing views. The ride up to the house was fun in the daytime. The hot tub was very well maintained and nice. A great spot to unwind and disconnect. As other people mentioned, there is a house next door but faces the opposite way so it feels very private—we didn’t hear our neighbors the entire time. Highly recommend!
Amazing cabin with spectacular views. by Sam 01/01/2021
Amazing cabin with spectacular views. Friendly hosts and easy check-in. There’s a nearby grocery store with everything you will need. We spent our days hiking, exploring town, cooking and taking in the views.

Just be mindful there are limits on WiFi data so we downloaded our movies/shows in advance to our phones and then played them on the TV without using WiFi. Checking on work emails or social media wasn’t an issue. 10/10 recommend.
Great location and views, only a few minutes to get to the store and Bryson city but it doesn't seem close while your up in the mountain. by Austin 12/01/2020
Great location and views, only a few minutes to get to the store and Bryson city but it doesn't seem close while your up in the mountain. Close to another cabin but still very private. Attentive owners and pet friendly.
Don't be fooled when you first pull up, there is another cabin closer than I expected. by Eric 10/01/2020
Don't be fooled when you first pull up, there is another cabin closer than I expected. That said, they face different directions and you can be as secluded as you wish. We had an amazing experience at this cabin and were just minutes away from all the area activities. This was one of my favorite stays.
We will be back! by Henning 10/01/2020
We will be back! The stunning views of this cute and cozy cabin are priceless! The drive up to the cabin is a little bit of an adventure but the moment you pull on the lot and see the view, you know you will not want to leave. The cabin had everything we needed. We would have preferred a wood burning fire place but in the end it was too warm for a real fire most of the time anyways and the rest of the time the gas fire place worked just fine. This cabin is cute and cozy but provides enough space for larger families. We stayed with our yellow Labrador retriever and he enjoyed the large porch, lying in the sun and short walks. If your dog is high energy, you will want to go hiking or drive down to town as the ability for long walks up on the hill is limited. But a good training for your legs for sure. We LOVED our stay. Awesome fall foliage, stunning views and very quiet, despite the lot being shared with another cabin. The views are unobstructed. We traveled the last week of October and had great fall colors and mostly great weather, too. Bottom line: We will be back.
Great home and spectacular view! by Troy 09/01/2020
Great home and spectacular view! Loved staying here.
This place was great! by Alex 09/01/2020
This place was great! The view was great, The hot tub was nice, and there was a big 5 burner grill!
Gorgeous views from this lovely cabin! by Elizabeth 08/01/2020
Gorgeous views from this lovely cabin! The hosts are very helpful and responsive. What a peaceful place to spend a long weekend. 🙂
We had a fantastic time at this cabin. by Charles 07/01/2020
We had a fantastic time at this cabin. The view is tremendous and the space was well laid out. Would not hesitate to go back again. Even the road up from the valley was fun. It's nicely paved with lots of pull offs to let others pass.
This getaway cabin was amazing! by David 06/01/2020
This getaway cabin was amazing! Great views, Kathleen is a really great host! She responded very quickly and made everything easy and simple to understand, everything just fell into place.
Fantastic view, very clean cabin with everything you need for a great time! by Cyndy 06/01/2020
Fantastic view, very clean cabin with everything you need for a great time!
Excellent place. by Zach 06/01/2020
Excellent place. The Cabin is very spacious with a great location and amenities. perfect for a mountain getaway. Will definitely book again if I return to the area.
The cabin is great and the views are spectacular. by Laura 05/01/2020
The cabin is great and the views are spectacular. We would definitely recommend the cabin to our friends and family.
The views are PHENOMENAL at this cabin!! by Joanna 05/01/2020
The views are PHENOMENAL at this cabin!! Ample and detailed information is provided to answer any and every question you might have. Very warm and comfy atmosphere of the cabin, truly a home away from home! Incredibly relaxing and yet invigorating Memorial Day weekend. Thank you for allowing my friends, puppers and I to stay at your jaw-dropping location!!
Native Winds Cabin by Judith V. 02/01/2020
Our stay was just wonderful! The renters were very responsive to any questions and went out of their way to help make the visit as special as it was! I heartily recommend this spot - the views have to be seen to be appreciated.
Beautiful place by Scott P 12/01/2019
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 11/01/2019
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 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. by Dan 10/01/2019
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.
Mountain Getaway by Chandra B 10/01/2019
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 09/01/2019
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.
Mountain Time by Erik B. 07/25/2019
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.
Wow. by Megan 07/01/2019
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!
July Stay by David Z. 07/01/2019
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. 07/01/2019
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.
Beautiful view! by David 07/01/2019
Beautiful view! Sweet hot tub!
Perfect Cabin, Perfect Location, Perfectly Immaculate! by Adventure67262 05/01/2019
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!
My wife and I (and our dogs) visited this cabin for an extended weekend getaway. by Brad 04/01/2019
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!
Couldn't be happier!!! by Ronnekia A. 04/01/2019
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!!
This is a beautiful cabin with breathtaking mountain views! by Amy 03/01/2019
This is a beautiful cabin with breathtaking mountain views! Clean space with comfy beds and great amenities. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend!
AMAZING by Daniel K. 12/01/2018
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. 09/01/2018
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!
Beautiful views, lovely home, great communication, easy checkin/checkout. by Grace 07/01/2018
Beautiful views, lovely home, great communication, easy checkin/checkout. Thanks!
We had an amazing time! by Dana S. 07/01/2018
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. 07/01/2018
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!
We loved the convenience of this cabin - located close to Bryson City and within minutes of Cherokee. by Annie M. 06/25/2018
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! by Jeff 06/01/2018
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. by Gretta 03/01/2018
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. 12/10/2017
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. 09/07/2017
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. 08/31/2017
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. 08/13/2017
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. 06/01/2017
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. 05/01/2017
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! by Anonymous 04/17/2017
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. 03/25/2017
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. 12/23/2016
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. by Roberta 12/14/2016
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 12/18/2015
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!!!!
Fantastic Cabin. by Martin B 08/16/2015
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 07/18/2015
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. by Cory, Heather, and 5 Happy Kids 06/11/2015

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 08/22/2014
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!
