We call our three bedroom house No Worries. This spectacular setting on five acres above Bryson City inspired us to create a place to slow down, relax, enjoy life and our family time together. The view is worth getting up early for and from there the days just unfold.

The Space

The view from our cabin on Fontana Ridge is spectacular -- one of the best on the mountain. We look down on the Tuckasegee River and out to the Smoky Mountains. The roads are paved all the way up the mountain, which makes for easy access all year long. Our cabin is on five acres of forested land.

My family created a retreat for our family and friends, with comfort and family fun in mind. Multiple levels with extra use rooms allow us to spread out so we don't have that "on top of each other" feeling, yet the cabin is cozy and comfortable when everyone gathers together. All the bedrooms are furnished with real beds with deep mattresses and solid dressers and tables. The master bedroom is nestled under the peak of the A-frame on the top floor. Windows and doors open to the outside deck and the loft space next to the room, which, along with the ceiling fans, allows good circulation. The spacious room easily accommodates the king sized bed and furniture without feeling cramped. Step outside onto the private deck to watch the sunset or come in and read in the loft sitting area outside the bedroom. The sofa in the loft area pulls out into a bed for your extra guests.
The deck wraps around two sides of the main living area and that's where we spend most of our time in the summer. The covered space means you can enjoy the view even in the rain while the uncovered side opens to the sun and moon. We take most of our meals on the picnic table on the deck but there is a large dining table just inside the French doors. There are two bedrooms on this floor (one queen, one double bed), the bathroom, the great room, kitchen and dining area. In keeping with our goal of comfort, the plush seating in the great room includes four recliners. There is a flat screen tv with DiretTV and a wood burning fireplace. The floor plan is open, with a partial wall separating the kitchen from the rest of the space. The kitchen includes microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven in addition to a large stand up refrigerator/freezer and full stove.
We have designated the downstairs as the gaming rooms, providing a pool table, two tvs, a DVD player and many family games, from dice to cards to board games, These are stored in a cabinet in the large game room and are available to everyone, along with a handful of paperback books and DVDs. The room with the pool table and tv has two small cafe tables and we think of it as the grown-up game room. The kids' game room has a high, cafe style game table, a daybed, bean bag chair, tv and DVD player, and a giraffe. The giraffe is my brother's touch of whimsey and although we know it doesn't belong in the mountains, the kids like it.
This lower level also has a laundry room with a washer and dryer and a sink. There's a door to the parking area on this level.

Interaction with Guests

The Neighborhood

We are above the Tuckasegee River in Bryson City. Be warned -- people come here and never want to leave. There are many "transplants" in Bryson City, which has given the town a unique atmosphere. Traditional mountain life meets outdoors adventure. There is river rafting, tubing, kayaking. Zip lining, hiking, biking. Small town crafts, thrift stores, and fine arts. The Smoky Mountain railroad depot is downtown. Bryson City is the perfect home base for exploring Western North Carolina and Tennessee. Easy day trips include Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville and Cades Cove.The Smoky Mountain Nantahala Gorge hosted the 2013 World Championships of Connie Freestyle in September. Bryson is minutes from Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This part of North Carolina is famous for its scenic drives. And for those wanting a break from all the scenery and outdoor activity, Asheville is an hour away.

Getting around

There's no public transportation. You will need a car but the roads are paved and we have a large, flat parking area next to the cabin so it is easy access.

Other Things to Note

We have DirectTV on two of the three tvs. The third has a DVD player. We are new at renting and hope your family builds many wonderful memories from your time at No Worries.

  • We had a great time at the cabin! Beautiful views, comfy beds and just what we needed for some R&R. Thanks Cyndi!

    Response from Cyndi:

    Thank you, Meg. I love getting the feedback, since I don't get back there often myself and have to depend on the helpers on the mountain. I am going to ask that they provide soap in the bathroom and kitchen. The map idea is good, too. I'll see what I can go about that.
    Take care,

  • Cyndi was a great and very accommodating host. Prompt communication, and very friendly. The No Worries Cabin was amazing, and the views could not have been better! We were truly satisfied with our choice, and the house was as expected. Would definitely look to stay again whenever in the area! Highly recommended!!

  • The cabinet was amazing with unbelievable view! We sent a weekend at the cabinet and we had so much fun. Very clean cabinet and lovely location. If I going back to Smoky Mountain, I will stay at the same cabinet.
    Thank you for a great cabinet.

  • Fantastic mountain house with views to die for. The house was very clean and exceeded our expectations. Great views from both front and back porches. Wonderful comfortable beds and plenty of entertainment options, too. Bryson City is a short drive away with groceries and dining options. I would definitely return to this house if I wanted another NC mountain retreat.

  • This cabin truly is a gem. We were four and it easily accommodated us. Evenings were nice playing a game of pool, cooking, … An ideal place to catch up with an old friend. Then in the morning the surprise came as we had a great smoky sunrise. Incredible! We saw one of the most beautiful sunrise we have ever seen and what’s even better, we could see it from our bedroom. Beautiful! The hosts were very friendly and quick in response.

  • We had a great time at Cyndi's place. The view was spectacular and their home was tastefully furnished, with many games, everything for cooking, as well as a nice fireplace to keep warm! We will definitely come back to the Smoky Mountains in the summer or fall and enjoy the area in a different season.

  • We had a wonderful time here. The cabin was spotless. The beds were very comfy. The views are spectacular. We enjoyed star gazing at night with our younger kiddos. The kitchen was nicely equipped and with being snowed in one day, we made good use of it! The downstairs game rooms made spending quality time with our kiddos easy. They loved playing board games and pool. We loved the solitude and quiet, but never felt cut-off from the rest of the world. We made day trips to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cherokee, NC and Pigeon Forge, TN with ease. Our family loved our stay in this cabin and are looking forward to returning in the summer months to enjoy the area when it is lush and green. Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us, we can't wait to come back.

    Response from Cyndi:

    I'm so happy to hear your family had fun, Bonnie. A snowy day is just what we had in mind when we stocked up on all those games.

  • Fantastic views, well equipped and comfortable. There are many things to do in the south end of the Park and avoid the glitz and commercialism of Gatlinburg. My friend Gary and I had a great time.

    November 2013
  • Beautiful house, beautiful location, wish we could have stayed longer and had a big group of friends to enjoy it with us! It has the MOST incredible views and is so special and peaceful up there!! It was the quintessential 'cabin in the woods' and had a wonderful feel about it. It was clean, and had every convenience we could need. Cyndi was also an extremely accommodating host and had us on very short notice! Thank you Cyndi!! Wonderful stay and we Highly recommend it!!

I am originally from Florida and now live in a small town in Northern California, where I raised my two sons. Both boys are in college now so we don't get to travel together as much as we used to. Since we live across the country we realized we can open our cabin to other families, with the help of our friends on the mountain. We enjoy hiking. snorkeling, scuba diving and exploring together, and travel as much as work and school and our budgets permit. Live music shows are a passion, as well. My kids and I are avid readers and leave a trail of paper back books everywhere we go.
