Behind the Nantahala Outdoor Center, about 5 minutes along a back country mountain road sets Smoky Haven. The roads to the cabin are well maintained and generally easily driven by most vehicles. The area around the cabin is minimally developed and retains a peaceful 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
This cozy 3 bedroom cabin is tucked into the Nantahala Mountains with a view overlooking the forested area and distant ranges. The gravel parking area puts you up to the steps leading into the cabin. To the left a beautifully designed fire pit area takes in the natural surroundings making a great place to roast marshmallows over the crackling hot fire. Up another set of steps and you can sit in one of the rocking chairs that span the deck. Take in the quite view and relax while listening to the chirps of little birds playfully echoing each other in the surrounding woods. The far end of the deck has a nice gas grill to make your favorite barbecue chicken and roast corn.
