About Karen Whitaker

Tim and Karen live in the Roanoke Valley of Virginia, but call Bryson City there second home. Karen spent many summers there with her grandparents, Troy and Maude Allen, enjoying all the offerings of the Smokey Mountains.

Karen Whitaker purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Karen Whitaker chose Bryson City

We built Allen's Retreat on family land passed down from my grandparents. The privacy, yet closeness to town and the beautiful mountain views made it all the more special. We couldn't have picked a better location to soak in the hot tub under the covering of our magnificent porch.

What makes this cabin unique

One of the great things about this luxury cabin is location, location, location! Only 10 minutes from town, and only 1 mile of hard surfaced road off highway US 74. This cabin is motorcycle friendly, and you don't have to worry about any steep mountainous driveways making it a challenge to get to. Once you arrive to Allen's Retreat, you can let your cares melt away in the spa boasting 45 jets. After a relaxing soak, you can enjoy watching tv in any of the bedrooms or great room. Then fix your favorite comfort foods in this plentiful kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.

Peaceful, comfortable with gorgeous views.

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent a long weekend - two daughters and one son in law - for my birthday. Another joined w her husband for dinner one evening and youngest is returning in December with another group. Needless to say, we really like this place! The cabin is nicely decorated, spacious and love the fire pit and hot tub. One suggestion, if you are going as a group, consider taking extra towels. There were plenty for showers but if you use the hot tub, you will probably need more towels .

As advertised

  • 5 of 5

Six of our family ages 24 to 80 enjoyed a wonderful four nights in this log home. It was perfect for our needs. We used all of the amenities including the fire pit (for smores), hot tub and porches. The location was great, not far from Bryson City and close to zip lining and white water sports. There were a few minor issues, but Karen said that they would be taken care of right away.

Excellent Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, organized and everything they stated it would be. My husband and I along with our 4 teenagers enjoyed the close proximity to the NOC where we zip lined and rafted. Kids said, Best Vacation To Date!
