... 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.

Amazing views! Comfortable beds! Full kitchen with everything you’ll need to prepare your meals! 3 person Hot tub was nice and hot! The energy felt at this home was enlightening! Would definitely stay again.

"Wonderful views"

by John


The whole process went smoothly. The place all they said it would be.

"Starry Skies"

by Laura


Rented the cabin to spend some time in the beautiful mountains with our son and his fiancée. The weather was mostly perfect and we really enjoyed the magnificent views and the starry skies at night. The beds were super comfy and I loved the layout with a bedroom/bath on each of the 3 floors for privacy. The master was perfect with our own fireplace! We cooked breakfast/dinner for the 5 days and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare the meals. Hot tub and fire pit were awesome! Would definitely rent again.


by Asia


Great cabin with great views. Has everything you need

"Sunrise or the Sunset"

by William


The Smokey Mountain Dawn cabin is definitely a must!! If you like to watch the sunrise or the sunset you won’t want to miss out on the incredible views from this cabin. The cabin itself is got a homey feel to it that makes you forget your on vacation and definitely makes for not wanting to leave and go back to reality. The location of the cabin was great too as your not but a few minutes from Cherokee and downtown Bryson city, and a lot of other great activities and places to see. Definitely would recommend this cabin to anyone or any of the other cabins available and will definitely plan to be back next year!

"The cabin and views were amazing!"

by Tiffany


We had a great time at the Smoky Mountain Dawn. The cabin and views were amazing! The hosts gave great directions and information about the drive up so we flat-landers were comfortable navigating the twists and turns, which really were easy after the first time up. We were traveling with our boys ages four and two months so we planned to grill and cook dinners in. The kitchen was very well appointed with a Keurig or traditional coffee maker and everything you’d need to make delicious meals. It also had a George Foreman grill and several crockpots if you wanted to “set it & forget it” while out for a day of hiking. It’s close to the park and lots of cute towns with great restaurants where we stopped in for lunch, and even with the neighboring cabin next door, we had the privacy and relaxation we were looking for. Making s’mores in the fire pit was a highlight. My favorite part was the private downstairs master suite with its spacious sitting area, another fireplace, shower for two and access to the hot tub deck. I’d highly recommend this cabin and will definitely be planning another stay in the future.

"Catch the sun rise and the sun set"

by Alton


Somethings you will like to keep to yourself, but I want because it want be fair to Kathleen, this cabin is great ,the views you just have to see for yourself, its clean up to date , the master bedroom out of sight, its up high and noise free.
A cabin next door but a buffer in between and you don't know they next door . screen porch and open decks. Catch the sun rise and the sun set. We really enjoyed this cabin ,the fire pit and the hot tub

"Stunning view!"

by Jenna


The house was perfect! Very clean and offered everything as described. We had a great relaxing time with a stunning view! Spot is perfect for easy access to so many places. Definitely would recommend and stay again!

"Great Location"

by Yusuf


Great Location/View , Very clean I would highly recommend.

"Made a lot of memories!!"

by Rene


This home is just as pictured. What you don’t see are the beautiful sunrises, hear the wind blowing through the trees, feel the fire while roasting s’mores with the kids, enjoy a glass of wine while relaxing in the hot tub... I could go on and on. Great location too for rafting, zip lining, train riding, etc. Did I say we had a great time and made a lot of memories!!

"Hot tub was perfect after long days of hiking"

by Alanna


Beautiful and very clean home with spectacular views! We cooked breakfast and supper each night and appreciated that the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals! Beds were comfy, lots of little extras and details that made our stay feel more like home. The hot tub was perfect after long days of hiking that also offered amazing views! Highly recommend this cabin and will most definitely be back!

"Super clean"

by Suela


This was one of the most beautiful cabins we’ve ever stayed in! The views are amazing and there is so much to do in the area. The place is super clean. You receive everything you need to know before your trip! Loved the stay! The road up to the cabin was an adventure. I was grateful hubby knows how to drive the mountain roads 🙂

"We loved every minute!"

by Courtney


The view was incredible! The cabin was fantastic - we had plenty of room for our family of 4. The hot tub and fire pit were fantastic!! Owner was very quick to respond to questions. The extra directions to find the cabin with all the mountain roads were spot on and a huge help. Kitchen was well stocked for what we needed to make meals there. Would highly recommend this place!!! We loved every minute!

"Amazing master suite"

by Angela


Beautiful cabin with amazing views. Steep and windy road to reach cabin. Amazing master suite.

"Morning views"

by Laura


Loved this stay. The morning views from the deck are breathtaking.

"Very spacious"

by Kelby


Great location in the mountains, but not too far from entertainment and supplies. The cabin itself is very spacious and a great place to hangout. A small heads up if you’re looking to work from here: the internet speeds are very slow, so anything that requires a good amount of bandwidth will probably not work, but works fine for doing small stuff on your phone. All in all, highly recommend!

"Beautiful view"

by Jacqlyn


Beautiful view in a wonderful area of the mountains!

"Super cozy, clean, and comfortable"

by Chris


We had an amazing time at the cabin! It was super cozy, clean, and comfortable. The views are stunning and location is perfect for both relaxing and for proximity to Bryson City for the train, shopping, and restaurants. The hosts were wonderful and provided great recommendations for activities and restaurants. They were very responsive to messages. The no contact self check in was super easy. Thanks so much for a wonderful mountain vacation!

"Balconies are very nice with spectacular views"

by Mashu


Big enough for a family, spacious enough for a small group of friends or two couples (wouldn’t suggest 3 only because the 3rd bedroom is a loft) and cozy enough for a romantic getaway for you and your significant other. It is exactly as the descriptions and pictures make it out to be, and a little more. The balconies are very nice with spectacular views. The master bedroom on the bottom floor is wonderful with its own fireplace, phenomenal dual head shower, and private access to the hot tub with breath-taking mountain views. You will not regret making this reservation, and will leave with great memories!

by Brooke


Great place. Breath taking views, very clean. Beautiful house and property. Very high up the mountain but that makes for a cool experience. Saw doe on the mountain as well. Very peaceful.

by Jessica


My husband and I stayed here for nine nights for our honeymoon. This cabin completely exceeded our expectations! First off, the view was stunning! we could not believe how beautiful it was! The mountains right outside the front porch of the cabin was unreal! We were also surprised by the fact that this was a three-story cabin! There was an adorable little bed on the third floor and we slept downstairs with our own private fireplace. There is also another private room on the mid level near the kitchen. There is a huge kitchen and the cabin looks like it was newly renovated! The furniture was so adorable! We love the huge dining room table and lighting! We are also very pleasantly surprised to have a wraparound deck! There is another cabin next to this cabin however, there are large evergreen trees to block their deck and we barely even heard them. It also snowed while we were there and it was absolutely beautiful! The drive up to the cabin was just as thrilling! It is a pretty narrow road but you do get used to it and we found it to be really exciting to drive on! This cabin was close to Gatlinburg tennessee, Pigeon Forge tennessee, and Cherokee North Carolina! These are the places we wanted to travel to as well as Glenville, North carolina! We loved exploring Sevierville and going to the Titanic Museum and wax museum! There are so many great hikes and sites to see here! We went on the local trail at the deep Creek trail in Bryson City, which we highly recommend! There are 3 beautiful waterfalls on this trail and a huge creek as well! We could not have picked a better place to stay for our honeymoon and to celebrate our 10-year anniversary! They were very responsive when we had questions. This was a dream vacation and we highly recommend this cabin to anyone saying in this area!

by Nathaniel


Cabin was amazing. Host was very quick to respond back. You can't beat the views here!

by Robert


I can't recommend this place enough. Beautiful cabin with every possible amenity and an amazing view. Location was also great, took some day trips to Smokey Mountain National Park and Nantahala for some hiking, was able to get there about an hour each way. Beds were extremely comfortable, also was great to relax in the hot tub after a long day of hiking. Would definitely come back again.

by Daniel


Fantastic experience! Very easy to deal with host, super clean and an amazing view. If you are looking for a truly special trip, look no further. Very close to town and great hiking trails.

by Sharon


This cabin definitely matches the descriptions and pictures. The view from the rocking chairs was beautiful and filled us with a sense of peace during these pandemic times. It was very clean and everything one needs is provided, including coffee and tea! After full days of hiking, the hot tub provided great relief for sore muscles. Yes, the drive up and down is thrilling and make sure you have good brakes. I hope to do a return visit next year.

by Jennifer


The best place we’ve ever stayed!!! Clean, fully stocked, and absolutely gorgeous!!! We will book again as soon as possible!!!

by Guy


Impeccably clean. Great mountain view. Kitchen has everything, including spices.

by Chris


Amazing cabin and location!! It was a perfect getaway with easy access to the Smoky Mountains! Very clean and beautiful. Can’t beat the view every morning!

by Jose


Great stay!’ Will definitely come back.

by Allen


Great spot! Breathtaking views. A wonderful place to relax. Hosts who were always available with immediate responses. Would definitely stay here again.

by Lynsey


We absolutely loved our stay here. The cabin is very comfortable with rustic charm, yet all the mod cons. The view is simply breathtaking. You won't regret staying here.

by Carla


Beautiful, well appointed home in a stunning location. Felt like staying over at a friend’s home rather than a generic rental. We loved the three porches and spent most of our time outside enjoying the mountain views. As we were social distancing, we prepared all our meals in and the kitchen had everything we could need. The ride up is an adventure but we are city folk and managed just fine. Can’t wait to return!

by Joni


Beautiful view! Great location in proximity to Bryson City, NOC, and the Smoky Mountains.

by Allie


Incredible getaway. Sitting on the back porch felt like we were sitting in the clouds. The downstairs master bedroom was to die for, and the hot tub at night was dreamy! We loved playing board games and the selection of movies as well. Thank you for an amazing time!

by Tori


Had an amazing weekend in this cabin! The view and space was incredible! A very romantic and private spot to spend with your person. My boyfriend surprised me with a proposal and I couldn’t be more thrilled or happy it happened here. It was a dream!

by Wallis


Loved this cabin! So cozy and comfy. Amazing views. We will certainly want to come back!

by Andrenia


Absolutely wonderful cabin, very comfortable and amazing views

by Sjones2


Speechless! Picture perfect.....

by Larry and Jane


The cabin was beautiful and comfortable and the mountain views from the deck were amazing. Seeing the clouds roll through the valley was definitely a highlight of our trip.

by Lisa


The views are amazing! This was such a cozy home for our family and friends, we didn’t want to leave!

by William


This cabin is well-situated with an excellent view of the mountains, is very clean and beautifully furnished and is so spacious. Enough said about this exceptional cabin. More to say about the vicinity of the cabin. When selecting hikes do not limit yourself to hikes in GSMNP. There are many more good hikes in the Nantahala National Forest. In the town of Bryson City our favorite meals were at Mountain Perks Coffee Shop. For a great value visit the deli for takeout from Ingles Grocery Store. During the third and fourth weeks of October we could see the changing appearance of the foliage. We saw all the Fall colors of gold, crimson and brown.

by Alexis


Great! Clean with Amazing view! Very private and lovely!

by Derek


Great location, cabin was very clean.

by William

"Spectacular Dawn"

by George A.


Super clean and well equipped/organized cabin. It was just the two of us for a romantic weekend but we will bring the kids back with us. Beds are nice. TV’s all work. Kitchen excellent. Hot tub worked well. We were delighted with the attention to detail and comfort all around. . Thanks Dawn!

"Beautiful cabin with awesome views!"

by Susan P.


Thank you very much for letting us use your wonderful cabin. The views were beyond amazing. The cabin was just perfect and very well-stocked, it had everything you would need and was very comfortable. We had a wonderful time.

by Travis


This house is exactly as advertised. Beautiful scenery, spectacular house with all of the amenities. Thinking about coming back again soon! Our host was great and couldn’t have asked for anything else.


by Phillip N.


This was our 2nd Trip to Smokey Mountain Dawn. The first time we stayed for 3 nights. This time we stayed 5!
We enjoyed as much or possibly more than the first!
We look forward to next year!

The cabin was everything and more! So much attention to every detail that made this a perfectly relaxing, worry free vacation. We needed this time to regroup after a difficult year.

by Mohammed


It is a fabulous cabin! You will enjoy your time there!

by Lori W.


Gorgeous place to stay. Accessible to many areas in the Smokey Mountain region. It was very comfortable, clean and updated. You can’t beat the views from Smokey Mountain Dawn!

"Beautiful mountain home!"

by Christal S.


Stunning cabin and outstanding views!! Gorgeous cabin, well appointed, comfortable, hard to leave! Full lower floor for the master suite and hot tub... what a great place! 10min drive to downtown Bryson City. A bit of a harrowing drive up the mountain but it's paved and it gets easier each time... worth it for the view! Great price for such a big cabin with 3 beds and 3 baths and stunning views from both decks.

by Mackenzie D.


views beyond what we imagined. Cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. Cannot go wrong with booking this property

by Lloyd C.


Cabin was spacious, clean, well appointed. View from back deck is amazing. Would stay again.

by Rowland D.


What a find. My family has just got back from Spring break and had a fantastic time in this beautiful cabin. It was perfect for my 3 boys and my wife and I loved the sanctuary of the master bedroom. The owners have thought of everything you might need to have a very comfortable stay. The views are amazing and sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine was pure heaven. Thank you for everything we will be back.

by Phillip N.


My fiancé and I work very demanding and stressful jobs and are accountable 7 days a week to our staff. We were looking for a nice getaway tucked up on a mountain with a view. This cabin delivered the on all points and then some. There was not 1 single thing we wished it had. The view is absolutely breathtaking! It was very welcoming as soon as you walked in the door. We will definitely be back! You just got yourselves forever customers. Thank you for giving us what we so desperately needed.

by Lucille L.


Beautiful cabin. More than described! Had a great time.

by Saif S.


We stayed at Smoky Mountain Dawn for 8 days. Wonderful place to explore local hiking trails in the Smokies with our young family. Beautiful and well appointed, and cozy for our family of 5, more than enough space. Hot tub was excellent, kitchen very usable, and wonderful views! We enjoyed Bryson City's many good eats and wish we could have spent more time here. The Cherokee museum was worth visiting. To top it off, it was a fantastic place to see the Eclipse of 2017! The drive up the mountain was slightly intimidating the first day, but not a problem afterwards. We would come back!!

by AmyCami


Immaculately clean. All the comforts of home. Well stocked bathrooms and kitchen. Breath-taking view! We have two teenagers so we could each have a bedroom on a different floor. It was so nice to grill and cook some simple meals so we didn't have to eat out all the time. There is so much to do in this area! We did the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, a five mile hike to see waterfalls, Clingmans Dome, whitewater rafting on the Nantahala and Ocoee Rivers, drove to Asheville and toured the Biltmore Estate then went to Sliding Rock. And while my husband and son went on an eight mile hike along the Appalachian Trail, my daughter and I went shopping in Cherokee. I would highly recommend this cabin!

by Jennifer G.


5 of 5
2 kids, 3 adults and we had plenty of room. The view is For Real and truly amazing. The home was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. The drive up the mountain to the house is a bit hair raising the first time, but then we were used to it. A view like this is worth the drive. We would stay again if we find ourselves back in the area.

by Perry S.



by David A.


Amazing place to stay! Perfect for couples, the amenities are fantastic! The amazing views of sunrises was completely breathtaking.

by Sharron A.


We stayed at Smokey Mountain Dawn for a week. The views were so great that we actually spent a part of that time not leaving and just enjoying this lovely mountain home. The home is decorated with love and comfort in mind. It was a home away from home.ew

by Michael H.


Fantastic place for adults to get away from the city life and enjoy the beautiful mountain view and fresh air. The cabin is big enough for one or two couples. A very nice romantic master bedroom and shower down stairs await you. The listing for this cabin is pretty correct. Be sure to arrive before sunset.....a very interesting drive UP a mountain side that is exciting to drive. ALL wheel drive or 4 wheel drive is recommended. Take your time. All I can say is: WOW. Bryson City is not too far away. Highly recommend a Italian restaurant: PASQUALINO'S. We are booking again next year 2017 already.

Nestled away above everything. This is a beautiful home located high up a mountain with a wonderful view, a very romantic setting for the latter part of mine and my husband's honeymoon. You feel far away from any hustle and bustle, but it is still a short drive to the highway for all of your adventures. Our stay was in late October and the colors were beautiful, so we did a lot of driving. One afternoon, we drove down Hwy 28 to Franklin, then drove back up Wayah Road, stopping along the way at the Wayah Knob lookout tower. On another day, we made a giant loop through the Tail of the Dragon into Tennessee and came back down the Cherohala Skyway, going on a hike at Huckleberry Knob. We spent another day driving through the Great Smoky Mountain National Forest to Pigeon Forge, where there are MANY, MANY beautiful places to stop along the way - like the view at Clingman's Dome or the Alum Cave trail (we saw peregrine falcons last time we went), and go to the alpine coaster in Pigeon Forge! The home was a very welcoming place to return to each evening, and the furniture is very comfortable. The downstairs masters suite is HUGE with a king size bed, plush sitting area, fireplace, TV, hot tub and a very large shower! Very romantic! This home is wonderful for families as well as there are bathrooms for each of the three bedrooms, and everything needed was provided. I would highly recommend this wonderful setting for a perfect mountain getaway!

My Response

Thank You so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review! Hopefully, this will be an annual tradition each Anniversary. I agree, views like this are hard to find so close to town and all of the area activities you mentioned!

Best Appointed Cabin we have stayed at so far! Our stay was the week of Thanksgiving 2014. We have been going to the Bryson City area since 2006. Ironically the first place we ever rented is right up the hill from Smoky Mountain Dawn. Since our first stay in the area we have probably stayed in 5-6 different cabins, some of which we stayed in more than once. Without a doubt, Smoky Mountain Dawn was the most well appointed of any of cabin we have visited. It also has one of the better views. The cabin has an excellent layout. Coming in from a screened porch you enter a big living area with a nice tv and DVD. A kitchen with great appliances and fully equipped with many cooking utensils. The bedroom on the first floor was great for our 4yr old. with a full bath off the kitchen with a jacuzzi tub. Although we didn't use it, the loft area had a great bed and a full bath. All bedrooms had flatscreen TVs and DVD players. There is a quite extensive DVD collection, which could be nice on a rainy day. Also a collection of books about the local area which i thought were good. The absolute best part of this cabin is the master suite downstairs. Huge room, with leather couch and recliner, nice bed and furniture, and really nice/large Samsung flatscreen. Even a Wii game system which provided a bit of fun for myself and kid. The master bath has double sinks and two headed tile shower, No tub in the master, but my just used one upstairs. The patio off the master has a really nice hot-tub. Try the lights. Its like hot-tub time machine. I think you can even plug your iPod in, but didn't try that. Also in the master suite is a full laundry room. Not one of the small stackables you find in most cabins, but full size washer dryer. The location is great, in that you are a short drive to the grocery and town and not too far to Tsali, NOC. But still has a feeling being "away". We were blessed with an inch or too of snow, but the paved road stayed completely clear. Overall our stay was fantastic. We will be back.

Simply Wonderful! We just returned from a 6-night stay at "Smoky Mountain Dawn". What a beautiful cabin with amazing views! This cabin was just renovated and we were lucky enough to be the first guests to enjoy it. We could not have been more pleased. The location was very convenient to all the area has to offer. We wanted the terrific views, but we also needed a motorcycle-accessible location. That is not easy to find, but the road up the mountain to this cabin is paved all the way up. It is still narrow, curvy and steep (you don't get that view without that trade-off), but it was not a problem for our car or the motorcycle. Once you get to the top, there is a nice large level packed gravel parking area. The owners and property manager really thought of everything you would need when staying at this cabin. We also enjoyed using the fire pit and the hot tub. Kathleen (the property manager) was great to work with and very responsive. We really couldn't have asked for anything better!!
