My wife surprised me with a 5 day getaway to the mountains for my birthday. Our stay at Bryson View Chalet was wonderful. The cabin has outstanding western views over Bryson City and to the mountains beyond. The cabin is well-appointed, clean and comfortable. It is also very private on the side of the mountain, even though only about 3 minutes drive into Bryson City.
The people at Carolina Mountain Vacations are helpful, friendly and responsive. We enjoyed some of the variety of activities available in the area, including hiking, whitewater kayaking, browsing the shops in Bryson City and dining there. People in the area are hospitable to the max.
We ate most meals at the cabin. Hard to pull away from the deck! We also enjoyed dinner one night at the Cork & Bean (great food, service and atmosphere) and lunch at Nate & Nick's (really good pizza, micro brews and friendly waitress- very knowledgeable on the beer choices that change often I am told).
Cindy and I will return to such a welcoming community, hopefully often. We immediately felt as if we were on vacation, I could feel the stresses of the working world slip away quickly as soon as we settled in. Sunsets, and even heavily clouded skies, were beautiful to experience every day from our deck.
