Property Details

Whether you are looking for a Vacation Cabin to unwind at the end of an active day outdoors, or you just want Peaceful Privacy and Relaxation, "Paddlers Retreat" is ideally located between Bryson City, the Tsali, and the N.O.C!
Inside the cabin you will find a well appointed kitchen with everything you require to prepare and serve your meals.
The open and spacious floor plan is ideal for entertaining and relaxation. In the Living Room, the Stone fireplace is the focal point!
For your entertainment, there are 3 flat screen TV's with satellite channels included. In the living room, there is a DVD player, assorted board and card games, and in the event of a rainy day, there is a Wii Game System.
The split floor plan does offer abundant privacy between the two bedrooms! On one side of the cabin, there is the Master Bedroom with King size bed (luxury linens and bedding are provided) and a private en suite bathroom. On the opposite side of the cabin, you will enjoy a "Jr. Master Suite" with a second King size bed, and an adjoining full bathroom. Each bedroom offers a 32" flat screen television with an extensive selection of satellite Channels to choose from.

The covered back deck offers several rocking chairs to relax and gather around the Fire Pit, enjoy a soak in the Sparkling hot tub, and Enjoy the ever changing beauty of the Smoky Mountains!
Outside: There is a large flat yard, and...

...The Private Nature Trail has been expanded/upgraded and meanders through the back acreage, and leads to a lovely flat area beside a Mountain Stream that is covered by a canopy of shade trees.
It is quite relaxing to just take a walk in the woods, and the Nature trail is sure to be a hit with 2 and 4 legged Guests alike!
For the more adventurous hikers, there are trails (off the property and over US Forest Service land) to hike the surrounding area.
On the covered deck, there is a Gas Fire Pit (a full canister of propane for each group is provided, plus what ever is left on the Fire Pit).

Additionally, the cabin now offers complimentary high speed Internet/WiFi! (The internet is best suited for emailing, social media, and browsing the web. Not for streaming)

Getting to the Cabin: Access to this private retreat is easy. Paddlers Retreat is located just over a mile from the main highway which is far enough to enjoy Peace and Quiet without "road noise" (it is so quiet, you could hear a pin drop). The road is not narrow or steep, and you do not feel as though you are "climbing the Mountain". Close enough to easily arrive at all the area activities quickly and without excess time in your car.

Ideally located between the Nantahala Outdoor Center and the Tsali Recreation and Mountain Biking Park, and Bryson City is less than 15 minutes away!

We offer a few tips and optional convenience 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.

View the new area Guide on our website ncmountains.net for links and additional information about the area and activities.
"Paddlers Retreat" is nestled into over 7 acres that offer more than just Peaceful Seclusion! There are several hiking trails in and around the property. One of the trails leads you to a quaint little Stream where the property flattens out and is under a thick canopy of shade trees!



This cabin is a haven for wild life sightings! While you are watching the Cows graze in a neighboring Pasture, you may see Deer & Wild Turkey too!
This property has 2 King(s), 1 Futon(s).

This house was a perfect fit for our needs. by Stephanie 09/01/2019
This house was a perfect fit for our needs. N.O.C is just down the road and very close to Fontana Lake. We had ample room to park our truck and jet ski and the hot tub and view were amazing. To top it off it was CLEAN!! Would definitely stay here again.
This cabin was just what we needed; it was private, quiet, clean, and comfortable. by Tiffany 08/01/2019
This cabin was just what we needed; it was private, quiet, clean, and comfortable. The view was amazing! It was close to so many attractions. We had a great time. We will definitely be back.
Secluded with beautiful views. by Monica 07/01/2019
Secluded with beautiful views. Don't have to drive up step mountains to get there or have a 4x4 vehicle. We loved the privacy and amenities. Great cabin!
2 Wheeling the Smokey Mountain's by LeeLee J 07/01/2019
Great adventure had by our group. The cabin was perfect. The sound's of the wildlife were remarkable. The view in the morning on the back porch was something I'd love to have everyday.
We enjoyed our stay at Paddlers Rest. by Collette 07/01/2019
We enjoyed our stay at Paddlers Rest. The location is great for daily adventures and excursions! You can spend hours on the back porch. The views are wonderful
Location, location, location. by Ryan 06/01/2019
Location, location, location. This is the perfect cabin to play at the NOC and explore Bryson City and surrounding area. We've stayed at this cabin twice, and we love it. We hope to be back next summer as well. You can't beat this location at this price for the amenities you get. Love this place!
Relaxing, comfortable, beautiful views by Kimberly M 06/01/2019
We couldn’t have asked for a better mini vacation. Even with the rain, our time spent was exactly what we needed!
Hot tub is awesome Nordic style. by Graham 05/01/2019
Hot tub is awesome Nordic style. The propane fireplace outside is perfect for keeping the bugs away as well as the chill. Internet was fast enough for Netflix. The oven/stove is propane and awesome.
If you want to relax, this is the place to go! by Renee 05/01/2019
If you want to relax, this is the place to go! The location is wonderful – right in the heart of the Nantahala Forest and gorge area and just a short drive to Bryson City. The views from the back porch are wonderful and we so enjoyed going back to this place every evening after our daytime adventures. The kitchen is beyond fully stocked, the beds are comfortable and the morning and evening views are so relaxing. The host also provides a book with local recommendations, activities and other points of interest. We had a fantastic time and would definitely stay here again!
Very Nice Cabin by Michael A. 05/01/2019
We've staying in many cabins in the past 2 years and Paddlers Retreat has become our favorite!

This place is amazing. by Courtney 03/01/2019

Wonderful by Christy I. 02/01/2019

Wonderful cabin that is close to everything!
Wonderful secluded cabin! by Tracy M. 10/01/2018
The cabin is on a secluded hill top surrounded by the woods. Very clean and cozy! It was very nice to have two master suites with their own bathrooms. The hot tub and fire pit were great. We enjoyed the town and surrounding area as well.
Great Stay! by Benjamin A. 10/01/2018
Overall the cabin was wonderful and we had a wonderful time! Perfect location for anyone wanting to spend time at the NOC or Bryson City!
Cleanliness and serenity. by Tammy J. 09/01/2018
My husband and I are always looking for a getaway that is secluded. As we have stayed many places we were always in satisfied with our previous trips. This place was just as described. We will be visiting this place again and again.
New Review by Alex 09/01/2018
Great private cabin. Close to NOC and Bryson City
The secluded location of this cabin allows you to feel like you've gone to another world, far away from the crazy pace of the real life. by Michele 09/01/2018
The secluded location of this cabin allows you to feel like you've gone to another world, far away from the crazy pace of the real life. Breathtaking view, cozy fire pit and relaxing hot tub says it all.
Specatcular back porch view by Jeff M. 08/01/2018
The mountain view and the hot tub on the back porch were soothing and brought us back to Paddler's Retreat each evening. The house was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed watching the smoke/mist over the mountains and the cool air was great! The house is convenient for riding the Tsali Mt. bike trails. I also appreciated the charcoal grill. The deep fill washing machine is excellent. The house is very private but you don't feel isolated. If we'd return to the area, we'd stay here again.
Great place to stay while visiting the NOC! by Joel 07/01/2018
Great place to stay while visiting the NOC!
The place was wonderful! by Ward 06/01/2018
The place was wonderful! Beautiful view, easy to access, and very clean and comfortable stay. It was the perfect place for a mountain get away.
Beautiful cabin, had a great stay. by Connie S. 04/22/2018
Beautiful cabin, had a great stay.
Exactly as Advertised by Stephen F. 04/01/2018
We were looking for a cabin for 2 couples, and Paddlers Retreat was perfect. We each had our own King Suites, and our own full Bathroom, with maximum privacy between the bedrooms! We especially liked being so close to the Nantahala Outdoor Center and took kayaking classes during the day, and relaxed in the Hot Tub in the evenings.
We will absolutely be back in the future.
Well worth it. by Robert 03/01/2018
Well worth it. No doubt about it.
We truly believe we will be returning customers, my family loved to explore and we are very big into hiking and such. by Vivia A. 12/21/2017
We truly believe we will be returning customers, my family loved to explore and we are very big into hiking and such. Naturally we stay in different area to explore other trail and such, but we must definitely stay in this beautiful cabin again it truly felt like Home. We stayed 6 night for Christmas and it was great, the Christmas tree was set up, the kitchen had everything imaginable for our Christmas dinner, it was great.
The cabin was immaculate! by Karla K. 10/29/2017
The cabin was immaculate! The location was perfect! Just minutes away from NOC & Deep Creek! Fontana Lake & View from Fontana Dam was Beautiful! Was so nice returning to cabin after spending the day in the mountains! We especially loved the view, hot tub, & rocking chairs on the large deck! There's even a fire pit on the deck & picnic table!! 2 King Size suites on each end of the cabin! The bed was very comfortable! It was nice having TV in each bedroom plus the living room! Walked on the trail on the property twice! We really loved r stay in this cabin & it was very easy to get to! And there was a really nice grocery store close by! Kitchen was well stocked! We ate out 1 time while staying there! Cooked most meals in the cabin! There is so much to do but we ran out of time! Can't wait to return & stay in this cabin again! We Love staying in the mountains! Oh I forgot to mention the lovely gas log fireplace that made it so cozy @ night!!
Paddlers Retreat was a well maintained, clean and lovely escape in the Smokey Mountains. by Robert L. 10/07/2017
Paddlers Retreat was a well maintained, clean and lovely escape in the Smokey Mountains. The Front Porch looks over a quiet serene mountain view with a pasture, complete with grazing cows , in the foreground. The home offers privacy, yet only a short drive to Bryson City. Great Smokey Mountains National Park offers amazing panoramic views of the Smokey Mountains and Valley Pastures. We saw three Elks which are more apt to be viewed in early morning and at dusk. We however happened to be lucky and saw them in late morning by the first visitors center and entrance to the Park. Cherokee is busy and offers quite a bit to do. The home, as I mentioned is well equipped with 3 TVs, 2 King Beds and a Hot Tub ! Lovely time, beautiful area ! Enjoy !

The little cabin was nestled on the side of the mountain in a picturesque and quiet setting. It was clean and well maintained and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our little getaway. My only regret was that our stay was too short. We will definitely return, hopefully very soon!

This cabin by far was the most wonderful with the morning view as well as the peacefulness of Gods country but yet with never ending outdoor things to do just around the corner! by Barbara C. 08/22/2017
This cabin by far was the most wonderful with the morning view as well as the peacefulness of Gods country but yet with never ending outdoor things to do just around the corner! This was the perfect cabin with duel suites , everything you could possibly want right there ! To rock on the back porch and soak in the hot tube as we watched the stars from the hot tub... laughing and chatting about the wonderful family day we had far away from the normal stress of life was absolutely awesome! Don't forget to turn off all the lights and experience more stars than you could have ever experienced seeing, feeling ... almost touching right here in your private oasis!!
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paddler's Retreat. by Brandi D. 07/01/2017
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paddler's Retreat. The cabin was roomy, clean, and comfortable. The children enjoyed playing on the wii, the hike in the back yard, and hanging out with mom and dad in the hot tub. We also enjoyed sitting and dining outside on the porch with the fire pit. The cabin is in close proximity to the Nantahala Outdoor Center and Deep Creek
We can't express how perfect Paddlers Retreat was. by Monica M. 06/01/2017
We can't express how perfect Paddlers Retreat was. Absolutely beautiful inside and our morning view with coffee, stunning. This wasn't a cabin this was a home and we felt for us it was perfect. Everything we wanted to see and do was right within less than an hours drive or less. We had to call once on the hot tub, they were there within 30 mins. The staff is amazing, Kathleen worked with us so hard when an emergency came up and we had to postpone a year, they go above and beyond, you don't find that often anymore. We will be going back over and over. I wish I could give a higher rating than 5, it's a 10 plus. Thank you so much for helping make our vacation everything we dreamed of.
We have rented many properties through VRBO and this was, by far, the best so far! by Happy Family from Midwest 06/01/2017
We have rented many properties through VRBO and this was, by far, the best so far! It was conveniently close to the NOC where we engaged in a variety of activities, but still remote and private. The cabin was not only well-supplied with all of the items one would need for even an extended stay, but also equipped with a variety of comfortable seating options both inside and out perfect for just hanging out. Finally, and arguably the most important, it was spotless! We will definitely be visiting the Paddler's Retreat again in the future!

We loved staying here! by Kathy 06/01/2017
We loved staying here! The house was bigger than we expected and was so clean and fresh. The kitchen was well stocked and the view from the porch was breathtaking. We spent every evening enjoying the sunsets! The hot tubs gave the paddlers in our group lots of comfort. Thank you for a great family vacation!
My fiancee and I went away for my birthday weekend and picked the perfect place! by Brent D. 05/08/2017
My fiancee and I went away for my birthday weekend and picked the perfect place! The cabin is pet friendly, so we were able to bring our 2 dogs. It rained on and off most of the weekend, so we stayed in, but were never bored. They had Wii, board games, TV with cable, and then of course the hot tub which we sat in and watched it rain. We can't wait to return later this summer for another getaway!
We keep returning to this fabulous cabin because of the comfort and convenience of two king master suites, the proximity to the NOC, the great view and the excellent customer service NC Mountains Realty provides. by Marilyn S. 03/20/2017
We keep returning to this fabulous cabin because of the comfort and convenience of two king master suites, the proximity to the NOC, the great view and the excellent customer service NC Mountains Realty provides. We're looking forward to a return visit when we can.
Beautiful place to stay. by Lorelei M. 03/13/2017
Beautiful place to stay. Woke up to snow on the mountain
We really enjoyed out stay at the Paddler's Retreat. by Annymous 12/14/2016
We really enjoyed out stay at the Paddler's Retreat. It was perfect for our family of 5 to have enough space without being on top of each other. The porch with a beautiful mountain view was wonderful to utlilize in the early morning with coffee and in the evening to relax afer a busy day of touring the area. My girls were able to hang their hammocks on the porch posts to relax and read a book. We very much enjoyed the more quiet area of Bryson City and touring the Blue Ridge Parkway. It has been almost 2 months since our stay and I miss it so much. I would definitely recommend staying at Paddler's Retreat if you enjoy peace, quiet and relaxation. We stayed by Gattlinburg a couple of years ago to tour the Smoky Mountains which had been a wonderful time, but we really enjoed staying in this area as it was less touristy.
It was very peaceful and secluded but not that far from Bryson City. by James A. 08/14/2016
It was very peaceful and secluded but not that far from Bryson City.
Excellent Get-Away. by Nicolette J. 02/09/2016
Excellent Get-Away. We had to be out of our house due to some construction work, so we packed up all of us (2 adults, 2 children, 1 dog, 1 cat) and headed to the Paddler's Retreat. It was the perfect place for us to hang for a couple days. The hot tub was relaxing, the house immaculate, the yard perfect for our dog. We loved everything about it and would definitely recommend it 🙂

My Response

Dear Nicolette, Thank You so much for the 5 star review and for taking such great care of the cabin. Our housekeeper said she would never have known there was a "full house"! Kathleen (Property Manager)
Cozy clean cabin, beautiful view. by Laura P. 11/07/2015
Cozy clean cabin, beautiful view. My husband and I spent a long weekend in early November in this cabin. This home is very well-maintained inside and out. For a cabin in the woods in NC, we were so very impressed with how immaculately clean it was when we arrived. We met Kathleen's husband on our last day while he was blowing the leaves from the property- the care that goes into this property is obvious, there aren't even spiderwebs on the porch!! The layout of the house is great with two master suites on either end and a large open living space in between. It would easily accommodate two couples (or more if you opt to use the two futons in the living room). The living space has the gas fireplace (easy and safe to operate and throws a great deal of heat if you want), plenty of seating, and tons of windows for great natural lighting. The kitchen is well stocked with newer appliances. The back porch is covered and spans the entire length of the house- we spent a lot of time here with the rocking chairs around the gas fire pit and the hot tub (which was also very, very clean). The backyard is flat and has an incredibly beautiful view of the mountains with a valley below that is pasture space for cows!! The house is private but not creepy or remote- the nearest neighbor sits tucked below the backyard of this property about 50ft down the mountainside - you cannot see them although we did meet their dog "Odie" every day! The pink trail to the hammock and small creek is well marked, but we found it to be too steep and slippery (wet leaves!!) to use on a regular basis. There are plenty of hiking trails and things to do in the area and during season, I'm sure the white water rafting is a huge attraction! We very much enjoyed our stay and we hope to return soon!!
Literally 5 minutes from NOC. by Marilyn S. 10/29/2015
Literally 5 minutes from NOC. We have stayed in quite a few cabins in this area and this one gets our highest rating. We loved having two master suites with king-sized beds! The common area - kitchen, dining and living room - were roomy and comfortable. There is a gas fireplace that kept us cozy and warm. And the view looking out to the back of the property through the two double French doors was just beautiful. This is our new favorite place.

Perfect for NOC lovers! by Raysfan 07/10/2015
Perfect for NOC lovers! This was our third time to the area and our first stay at Paddlers Retreat. The home is a great location if you want to be close to the action of the NOC but also want to be far enough from the road to have peace and quiet. The property manager Kathleen was very responsive with reservations and questions. The house had a split floor plan with 2 master bedroom suites on opposite sides with the kitchen, large dining area and livingroom in the center. Two sets of French doors lead out to the large porch with chairs, fire pit and hot tub. We loved the picnic table and ate all our meals outside enjoying the sunset and the sounds of the birds and frogs in the evening. So Peaceful! Paddlers retreat is centrally located between zip lining, white water rafting and mountain biking in Tsali. If you're around for a weekend, check out the Kudzu bar just down the road for great bluegrass music and dancing. We found our clean, comfortable home away from home!

This cabin is Brand New to my Vacation Rental Program, so I thought I would write a review of my own! by Property Manager 04/04/2015
This cabin is Brand New to my Vacation Rental Program, so I thought I would write a review of my own! I was at "Paddlers Retreat" waiting for the Hot Tub to fill, and the Satellite TV service to be installed, so I took advantage of the Beautiful Day to relax in a Rocking chair on the covered back porch. It was so quiet, I could have heard a "pin drop". I was enjoying the Mountain Views just beyond a pasture where the cows were grazing, and some wild turkey were exploring! It was a lovely afternoon! There are so many Deer in that area, I expected one to run by any second... Kathleen
