Our large porch has ceiling fans and plenty of rockers and loungers for you comfort.

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed with the view from the back porch. Every night was a delight as we watched the sun set behind the mountains. The house had all the amenities you need, the furniture was very comfortable, and we loved all the extra blankets to snuggle in at night. This is the first house we have ever rented that had comfortable beds!! The shower in the master bath is huge and beautiful. We will definitely come back here if we are in the area again.

Bryson City is a cute little town, I highly recommend visiting here. Try out the local BBQ and boiled peanuts!

Last, but not least, we enjoyed the wild turkeys that visited every evening!

Owner's Response: Hi Kelli, We are so pleased you enjoyed everything about our cabin that we do! Thanks for all the compliments regarding the furniture and beds. Before we built our cabin I wanted to make sure the beds were comfortable. We have rented to many places in the past and was glad to get home to our bed. So I tried to make sure sleeping would be a pleasure at our cabin! We do hope you will come again when you are in the area. Thanks so much for choosing our cabin. Helen

I can't say enough good things about this property! Had everything we needed and more. We took advantage of the games, hot tube, hammock and kitchen supplies. We can not wait to visit again in the future and look forward to bringing our children and friends next time. The house had plenty of room for more guest. It was also secluded which was pretty high on our list of "wants". You can see houses in the distance but nothing close. Pictures do NOT do this property justice. The view....BREATHTAKING! I hate to say anything negative about the house but there was only one thing that could have used extra attention and that was the master bathroom shower. It needs a good scrubbing but everything else was absolutely perfect and we were very impressed. Thanks for allowing us to share your home and we can't wait to visit again and again!!

We stayed in "Our point of view" over Labor day weekend. We had 10 people, several different families. This cabin was WONDERFUL! The view from the porch is spectacular. The bedrooms are positioned at each corner for more privacy. We cooked several meals utilizing mostly what was already in the kitchen. My entire family was very happy with the cleanliness, the view, the layout, everything!

Amazing View

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and tasteful. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well supplied. The view was amazing and it was an easy road up even in the rain. Turkeys and hummingbirds were fun for us and the kids.

Suggestions: We wished there had been a bigger table for dining together (only one smaller 4p table, a high top and a bar) or maybe a picnic table or someplace to dine outside with the beautiful view. We also missed having a fire pit outside, but understood why the HOA would prevent it. The hot tub lid was also a real chore to open as the lift arm had been snapped in half and you couldn't really walk to one side of the tub and needed to climb in to remove the lid.

Owner's Response: Hi Christine, Thanks for choosing our cabin. We are happy that you rested well and loved the view and the visiting birds. Sorry the seating for dining did not work for your family. We designed the seating to allow everyone to spread out and have plenty of "elbow room". The fire pit is a true hazard on the mountain if left unattended. We love a fire pit as well, but would never want to put ourselves or our neighbors at risk. We had a picnic table and it was damaged by previous guests as well as the cover arm for the hot tub. Replacements have been ordered and will be installed in the near future. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you, but we have these issues very rarely and get them corrected quickly. We hope you will visit us again on your next visit to the area. Thanks, Helen
