Our High Valley House is a wonderful place that has been our family home for the last 13 years. Sit in the porch swing or hammock and take in the miles-long view, or enjoy it through the large windows that surround the house.
Our High Valley House is a wonderful place that has been our family home for the last 9 years. Love at first site is what made us buy it and will make you glad that you are here. Sit in the porch swing or hammock and take in the miles-long view, or enjoy it through the large windows that surround the house. Better yet, join up around the fire-pit or soak in the hot tub. Easy access to a 4-lane Highway, but very secluded. Close to the NOC, whitewater, Tsali mountain biking, Appalachian Trail, Lake Fontana, Tail of the Dragon for motorcycles, Smoky Mountain National Park, and the Cherokee Casino.
The house layout works great for separating the guests. The master bedroom is on the main level with a Queen bed and the jetted tub with windows to the world. Downstairs, there is the King bedroom, the Double bedroom, and a Kids room with a dual twin bed trundle. There is also a separate bathroom and laundry downstairs. Outside exits from both ends of the downstairs give you easy access to the yard and hot tub. You relax upstairs and put the kids and in-laws downstairs, or switch. Everyone can re-group on the main level with the open kitchen that is great for visiting and enjoying the views out the over-size windows.
If you are in the area to ride your motorcycle on the amazing mountain roads, this house will make a great central base for exploring. There is a huge covered area under the front deck that you can ride into and out of. There is only a short stretch of level gravel road coming into the neighborhood, otherwise all pavement access including the driveway.
Cyclists will appreciate the covered bike wash area to work on and leave their bikes
Fisherman will enjoy the easy access to the Nantahala and Little Tennessee Rivers and Lake Fontana.
There are great quiet walks right from the house and folks with a little adventure can even hike all the way down to the Nature Conservancy tracts of the Needmore Tract on the Little Tennessee River.
All this, yet the house is very easy to access and is only 15 minutes from Bryson City.

I live in Asheville NC with my wife and daughter. We own Motion Makers Bicycle Shop with two locations in WNC, Asheville and Sylva. We've put our Bryson City house on Airbnb because it seems like a great improvement over the older rental platforms and it still allows us to use our house on the weekends that we want.
