Every image you have about a cabin in the mountains comes to life here from the cozy covered porch to the high vaulted ceilings with enormous windows, to the mountain-rustic design elements. Remote learners or workers will enjoy the fast internet, and there's even an in-house printer for your use. But it's not all work, be sure to get out to Fontana Lake via the Almond Boat Park just a few minutes away. The mountain biking trails at Tsali or the river attractions at the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) are only minutes away, too. Or this is a perfect basecamp for experiencing the other convenient attractions like Cherohala Skyway, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Cherokee Indian Reservations, and even Asheville.

Your main commercial base will be the charming town of Bryson City, an easy 15-minute drive from Sunshine Getaway. This quaint mountain escape has craft breweries, charming shops, family restaurants, and is home to the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. There is also a drugstore, modern grocery store, and ABC (not on Sundays). Bryson City is also one of the gateway entries to the Smoky Mountains National Park, via the gorgeous area called Deep Creek. There you can enjoy ample parking for tubing, waterfall hikes, horseback riding and picnicking, all in the National Park but only 10 minutes out of downtown Bryson City.

The main level of the cabin has a great room with the wall of windows and gas-log, stone fireplace. The main entry comes in from the covered front porch but sliding doors also open to the open deck which has a hot tub and long-range view. The fully-equipped kitchen and dining area combined with the gas grill will satisfy most cooks, and the outside firepit will roast the marshmallows under the stars for ghost stories and S'mores. Firewood as well as propane for the grill are provided. There is a regular coffee machine (filters supplied) and a Keurig (starter K-cups are provided, but please bring more of your favorite blend).

The main level also hosts the king master bedroom where you'll find a TV and office area (Wi-Fi printer is already set up for guest use) with attached master bathroom. A large garden tub or a shower are available in this bathroom. Upstairs is a second bedroom and bathroom. The bed here is queen sized, and the bathroom has a shower/tub combo.
