Rustic dog friendly Great Smoky Mountain cabin w/ spectacular views

Escape to the serene Great Smoky Mountains and experience the ultimate mountain retreat at "Hound Dog Heaven." Perched at a breathtaking 4,000 feet elevation, this custom-built cabin offers the best mountain views in Western North Carolina. Modern amenities such as internet access, a well-equipped kitchen with five appliances, and a large screened-in porch for dining and lounging ensure a comfortable stay for all guests. Cozy up by the outdoor fire pit, enjoy a barbecue on the charcoal grill, and take in the stunning surroundings of this mountain oasis.

Nestled in the Alarka Community, "Hound Dog Heaven" provides a peaceful escape surrounded by miles of tranquility. While the last stretch of the drive to the cabin is on a narrow, gravel road through a wooded area, the rugged journey is well worth the reward of unparalleled mountain views.

With full and private access to the property, including a large screened-in porch, stone patio with fire pit, a charcoal grill, and a spacious front deck for sunning and stargazing, you'll have plenty of outdoor space to relax and unwind.

Outdoor enthusiasts will delight in the proximity to a variety of recreational attractions in the Swain County area. From fishing at Alarka Creek (which is a state stocked fishing creek), white water rafting and ziplining at the Nantahala Outdoor Center to hiking at Deep Creek National Park and exploring the Great Smoky Mountain Forest, as well as the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, there's no shortage of adventures to embark on. For a taste of local culture, visit downtown Bryson City for mountain biking, breweries, and dining spots, or head to Cherokee for a visit to Harrah's Casino and the Oconluftee Cherokee Living Museum.

Whether you're seeking a romantic getaway or an adventurous family vacation, "Hound Dog Heaven" offers a unique mountain experience with all the comforts of home. Dog-friendly and equipped with essential amenities like a washer/dryer, central AC, and a charcoal grill, this mountain retreat is the perfect base for exploring the natural beauty and attractions of Bryson City.
