Behind the Nantahala Outdoor Center, about 5 minutes along a back country mountain road sets the large 1 bedroom log cabin getaway, A Bit of Heaven. The roads to the cabin are well maintained and generally easily driven by most vehicles. The cabin is perched on the mountain side overlooking the road leading to the cabin and the mountain views spreading across the horizon. The area around the cabin is minimally developed and retains a natural setting. White water rafting and excellent restaurants are just a short drive back down to the Nantahala Rafting center. Mountain biking at the famous Tsali recreation center is around 15 minutes away. Bryson City and the Smoky Mountain National Park are a scenic 25 minute highway drive away. The Cherokee Indian Reservation entrance to the national park is another 10 to 15 minutes past Bryson City..
The front door is actually on the back side of the cabin or to the right side from the gravel parking area. Past the front door, around to the opposite side of the cabin is a fire pit with seating and a scenic view. Sitting here on a cool evening in the fresh mountain air under the blanket of stars above, bathed in the warm glow of a fire, the rest of the world will seem miles away. The large open deck is only accessible from with in the cabin. A scenic mountain view spreads wide across the deck. Watching a sunset over the mountains while relaxing in the warm massaging waters of a professionally cleaned hot tub is a great way to end an adventurous day of white water rafting and hiking mountain trails or to start a quiet evening.
When you step through the front door, the wide mountain view fills the open floor plan from the cathedral ceiling high window wall facing you. To the left of the front door is the full kitchen which is also open to the mountain view. Past the kitchen is a large living room; where a soft leather sofa and love seat sit in front of a gas log fireplace and large screen satellite TV. If your not in the mood to cuddle up in front of a fire or movie. Then maybe a competitive game of pool or foosball in front of the fireplace in the private game room is more you style. The game room is on the opposite side of the pass through fireplace. To the right of the living room is the honeymoon inspired master bedroom. A comfortable queen size bed hand made from logs continues the rustic mountain theme decor. Just a few steps past the queen bed is a Jacuzzi style tub. This honeymoon suite does also have a private full bath.
