“Going to the mountains is like going home” – John Muir

Thank you for considering us for your upcoming North Carolina mountain vacation. The Bryson Builtmor is secluded high above Bryson City, looking out over miles of the majestic Smoky Mountains. Enjoy beautiful misty morning views of the Smokies or watch one of our magnificent, ever-changing sunsets, all from the privacy of the wooden deck.

Our mountaintop location is a short, scenic drive around Fontana Lake from quaint Bryson City.


We are located near the heart of downtown Bryson City, very close to Deep Creek and of course, The Polar Express! Our home is nestled high on the mountain and surrounded by protected land. With only three cabins further down our road, the home is private and quiet. Most importantly, the cabin is easily accessible year-round via a paved road, all the way up to our driveway!


Bryson City is a laid-back town, free from the congestion, traffic, and noise that you came here to escape. In the summer, Bryson City is home to kayakers practicing on the Nantahala, hikers from Europe, and friendly locals. You can enjoy delicious food and a cup o’ joe with Pam at Mountain Perks (our favorite is the Parisian Wrap with the freshest produce you have ever seen). Before exploring the locally-owned shops, take the drive to Cades Cove in Great Smoky Mountains National Park or take a step back in time aboard the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. You can spend a day visiting some of the local antique shops or take a day trip to visit the other Builtmor, the world famous Biltmore Estate in Asheville, before heading back for another beautiful sunset on the deck with family. There are so many options, but one of our favorites is relaxing the day away breathing the fresh mountain air with no plans.


At night, you can try your luck at the newly renovated Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, head downtown to The Cork and Bean for a sampling of local wine, check out the new microbrewery, or simply kick back and gaze at the stars that are very bright and feel like they are close enough to touch because of the lack of city lights.

We are centrally located to the area’s most popular attractions, including Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Nantahala Outdoor Center, Fontana Lake and Dam, Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, the Tsali Trailheads, and the new Sequoyah National Golf Course designed by Robert Trent Jones. We recommend taking a pontoon boat for the day and exploring Fontana Lake from Almond Boat Dock. You can even try to strike it rich at the Nantahala River Gem Mine or other nearby prospecting locations. The area also has miles of rivers and acres of lakes for enjoying water sports and miles of trails for hiking.

Whether it’s for a lively family gathering or the intimacy of a much needed romantic get-away, we welcome you to our home where you can’t help but create memories that will last a lifetime.
