Hobby Haven is a cabin that sits near the top of a mountain with beautiful long range views, so be prepared to drive straight up the paved mountain road to get there. This cabin in privately located in a gated mountain top community, only about 5 miles from Bryson City. Nearby outdoor fun includes hiking to waterfalls along the trails at Deep Creek, rafting on the Nantahala River, taking a scenic trip along the Great Smoky Railroad, and mountain biking at Tsali.
Its hard to see anything other than the amazing view as you pull into the gravel parking area of Hobby Haven. The log cabin sits perched above the valley below. A few cabins can be seen but you have plenty of privacy to enjoy. A few steps up to the deck leads you to the front door and on to the deck that surrounds the front of the cabin. No matter the season or the time of day, the view from here is spectacular. Enjoy the seating to sit and take it all in, the sounds of birds chirping and squirrels barking bring a peace to the soul. Hobby Haven provides one of the best spots in the mountains to enjoy the warm sunshine or night sky glowing with stars. On the right side of the deck is a gas grill to cook meals and have a great time outdoors in the fresh mountain air. A bottom deck is accessible from the downstairs den, creating a cozy place to sip a cup of hot coffee in the mornings while watching the fog lift from the mountains in the warm rising sun.
As you enter the cabin from the deck a perfect interior welcomes you. An open floor plan allows you to gaze out the large windows to the view outdoors, while having a meal at the dining table that seats four, preparing meals together in the fully equipped kitchen, or relaxing in the comfy leather furniture of the living area. The room offers a fireplace to create a cozy feeling during cooler weather and satellite TV to watch a movie together at night after a long day hiking or exploring the nearby Fontana lake. Past the kitchen is a full bath with shower and tub as well as a comfortable queen size bedroom.
From the living area leads a stairway up to the master bedroom. This great open space allows for the most amazing views through the large chalet windows. Imagine waking up in the mornings nestled in the king size bed gazing out across the land. A private bath joins the room with shower and tub.
A door to the left of the kitchen leads down stairs to a spacious den. This room offers a great view and access to a small deck to enjoy the outdoors. A second fireplace offers warmth to the room, and a card table gives a place to enjoy games together. Or one can snuggle up on the couch and enjoy the satellite TV. A full bath is to the right of the room as well as a nook with a washer and dryer.
