Sitting at the top of Fontana Ridge, our guests will enjoy our ridge top cabin with lots of privacy and breathtaking long and short range views of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Our large porch has ceiling fans and plenty of rockers and loungers for you comfort. The porch overlooks our outdoor living area which includes a Park Charcoal Grill, two person hammock and a wonderful 7 person hot tub with luxurious terry robes included for your convenience. Evenings are equally beautiful with a sky full of stars on clear nights.

Our Great Room features two sets of french doors that bring the mtn views inside, a wood burning stone fireplace and vaulted ceiling with a unique spiral staircase up to the loft overlooking the Great Room.

There are two guest bedrooms with comfortable queen beds and ceiling fans. Each room has a 19' flatscreen TV with Dish Network. One of the guest bedrooms as well as the loft also gives you the beautiful view of the mtn range.

About Helen Avant

When Wendell & I began bringing our grandchildren to Bryson City to ride the Great Smoky Mtn Railway some years ago, We always had dreams of having a cabin in this area. When we visited in 2011 we found our lot by chance and was not really 'looking'. We had not planned on building for a few more years. Those plans quickly changed when we realized this was 'Our Point of View'...We loved the community and quickly got to know a few of the residents as we went though the process of making our decision. We loved the location, the space of the lots which provides privacy, and a wonderful view. There was something that just 'felt right' about it.. After everything came together so easily, We decided to move forward and you know the rest of the story! Construction on our cabin began in November 2011 and was completed in April 2012. We love our cabin and hope our guests will quickly come to love it as we do. We are very family oriented and invite you and your family to feel 'at home' when you vacation with us. We hope that we have met the expectation of all our guests and hope to build long lasting relationships for years to come. Best Regards, Wendell & Helen Avant

Why Helen Avant chose Bryson City Area

We love the location of our cabin. Everything from a short drive to Bryson City to the central location of ALL activities, the beautiful views, to the paved roads which make access to our cabin very easy. We love the quiet and close knit community of Fontana Ridge.

What makes this cabin unique

We knew what we wanted in our cabin and was able to design our floor plan. We love the view from the location of our cabin and love the ability to enjoy our cabin inside and out with the additional outdoor living area. The open floor plan and additional outdoor space creates room for all to spread out and relax. The outdoor area is very relaxing from a dip in the Hot Tub to a lazy afternoon in the 2 person hammock. We hope you will enjoy your vacation in our cabin!

Beautiful, Peaceful Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in "Our Point of View" for a get together with friends. The house is clean and has a nice open floor plan so everyone can be together. We really enjoyed the view and the hot tub.

One negative- there were not enough towels for 10 people, so some of us shared. Also, we are still waiting on our damage deposit to be refunded. It has been over 2 weeks and VRBO says it can take up to a month.

Owner's Response: Hi Taylor, So glad you enjoyed your stay. Our cabin is very peaceful and the views are beautiful. One of our musts is the cabin be cleaned thoroughly by our staff. So sorry for the shortage of towels. We provide enough for all of our guests with extras and I do not know what happened, but I will certainly follow up with my cleaning staff. We usually leave an adequate supply and provide the washer and dryer in the event you need it. I do deposit refunds once a month and always refund the deposit within the 30 day period to the guest's credit card and yours was refunded within that time frame. Sorry it was an inconvenience for you! It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and hope you will come again soon. Thanks, Helen

A wonderful and relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this cabin -- so close to the amenities of Bryson City yet far enough removed to relax and soak in the amazing mountaintop scenery. The cabin was clean, cozy and beautifully decorated for the holidays. We had everything we needed right at our fingertips, and there was more than ample space for the seven of us to stay. And contact with the owner was easy. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone!

Best Christmas!!! Shared with husband, children and grandchildren

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the view was amazing, we had a wonderful time and the kids loved the loft and the surprise we had for them riding on the Polar Express....There was plenty of room for our family of eight, and would plan another trip back. Everything described in the listing was most accurate, and the owner was a pleasure to work with.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for an early Christmas celebration and to do the Polar Express. The cabin was perfect! The views were breathtaking, the Christmas decor was gorgeous, the hot tub and fireplace both made it so relaxing. The loft was great for two of our kids and the master had plenty of room for a pack and play for our little one. Both of the bathrooms are very nice. The kitchen was really nice. We loved that they had a Keurig. We loved this cabin and want to come back for a fall visit next year. Thanks for the great visit. You have a beautiful home in a beautiful location. We highly recommend this cabin!

Wonderful, Beautiful, Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled to Bryson City for the weekend to ride on the Polar Express. Point of View made the weekend absolutely perfect. The cabin was decorated for Christmas and was beautiful. Our 2 small children 2 & 4, LOVED the cabin. The loft was their favorite. The view....well the view is unbelievable. It doesn't get any better!! I can only image how beautiful it must be during the other seasons. We will definitely return. A true gem.
