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!

Perfect Choice

  • 5 of 5

Easy access; beautiful, comfortable home; great selection of spices and food prep items. Loved the oldies music selection on the TV. Helen was very easy to work with and made every effort to make sure we had a wonderful visit. The cabin was a perfect height to enjoy the gorgeous mountain views, but not be fearful while driving up the mountain.

We will stay again in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan, glad you found easy access to our cabin. We try to keep spice items in the cabin and appreciate our guests that purchase spices and leave them for other guests to enjoy as well. Really glad you had a good time and the oldies are my favorites as well. Play them all the time at home while cleaning and working around the house.... We would love to have your group return in the future. Thanks a million for choosing our cabin! Helen

Perfect way to experience the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience to the Smokey Mountains and picked this house off of VRBO. We have now put this on our FAVORITES list and will visit again soon! The views from this home are amazing. It's close to a cute little town with a lot of charm of Bryson City, NC., where we experienced the Great Smokey Mountains train ride which was well worth the time. It's also very close the Nantahala Outdoor Center for those who enjoy water sports, zip lining, and all the outdoor activities you want. We plan to return to take advantage of this soon!!

This home has the room needed for family gatherings with lots of space and comfort and also had all the amenities we were looking for. The bonus was the very peaceful setting and the views. Plan to take a walk up the hilly lane in the morning sunrise if you dare. The views are spectacular, especially when the trees are turning.

FYI.... We were able to drive straight to the house using Google Maps and we had great AT & T Cell service from the house.

All in all its a great home in a great location if your looking to experience the smokey mountains at its best.

It was a pleasure to have your family as our guests! Will send the shoes soon! Thanks, Helen

Owner's Response: Thanks Ryan. We feel that it is pretty incredible as well. We can't get enough of the view. No place like our out door area at night to view the stars. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you will visit our cabin again on your next trip to Bryson City. Thanks, Helen

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly as pictured. Very clean , comfortable and stocked with everything we needed. The view absolutely exceeded our expectations. Amazing. If you are going to the Smoky Montains area, this is the perfect spot to relax/unplug. We will definitely be back. The owners are very responsive if you were to need something. Highly recommend!

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing!! It looked great in the pictures but you don't truly appreciate how great it is until you're there. It was easy to find, but one person that came with us put the wrong address in their GPS and Helen was easily available at 10PM for our call.

The hammock and hot tub are super relaxing and great way to nap in the day and relax at night.

The stars at night are crazy. Bring a constellation guide because I bet you can easily find just about everything.

The beds were comfortable, the tv had everything for college football viewing on Saturday, and the cabin was clean and comfortable as a whole. We found a trail at deep creek loop to go on that wasn't too bad of a hike. We also went down the Nantahala river which is maybe 30 minutes away. The grocery store is not even 15 minutes away at the base of the mountain. The brewery taproom in Bryson city itself was surprisingly great (coming from an Atlanta resident where there's plenty of breweries). I don't think there was a tour but it has a band at night, showed football, and served great beer. I highly recommend the trail magic #14, it was awesome.

Fun 3 night trip that was relaxing yet fun filled!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Niall. It is true the pictures are beautiful, but the view in person is so much better. The stars are wonderful on a clear night. We also love the area and that's why we choose the location to build the cabin. It is always my pleasure to assist our guests no matter what time. Glad you enjoyed all the amenities. We wanted to create a living g space for indoors and out. We certainly hope you will visit us again on your next trip to Bryson City NC. Thanks for the delightful review. Helen
