This ain't Granny's mountain cabin! There are 3 loft-style cabins on the site of the Watershed Resort property near Bryson City and Cherokee, NC. Surrounded by woods yet minutes to the area attractions, these units will bring city hipsters to the mountains just to experience the style. A central shared fire pit and outdoor living space makes these great to combine with 3 couples enjoying the entire compound; or rent just one, as each unit also has a private deck with its own hot tub. The Watershed Resort property is a 50 acre tract with community "yard" area that enjoys bocce ball and other yard games as well as an amazing sunset view from our "log-zebo" bedswing. Hike the trail down to our authentic tee-pee and trout pond with waterfall all right on site. Or venture by car to the attractions that are just minutes away: NOC, Tsali mountain bike trails, Fontana Lake, Nantahala Gorge Zip Lines, Great Smoky Mountains Railroad, Harrah's Cherokee Casino, and much more.
This unit is managed by my management company, Watershed Cabins, so you have access to my full staff in case you have any housekeeping or maintenance issues. The reputation of Watershed Cabins speaks for itself, or you can check us out on the web to learn about us.
Note that there are 3 units in a cluster and this listing is for Loft #3. If the dates are not available in this unit, please check my listings for Loft #1 and Loft #2. While my calendar is usually up to date, there are sometimes reservations that get booked by other means and there is a slight delay before I get to update the Airbnb calendar.
Note that the kitchen is a small efficiency-style kitchen with 2-burner cooktop, refrigerator and all pots/pans, dishes, and small appliances included, but no oven or dishwasher.
$40 cleaning fee to all stays. Cleaning cost is the same whether you stay 1 night or a week (note we have a professional housekeeper and a hot tub technician visit before each stay, so this is a very professional operation)
You will get a complete arrival packet from the Watershed Cabins reservations desk after you book through Airbnb. Your documents will show that no payment has been posted because Airbnb doesn't remit payment to us until the day after you arrive. If you receive the packet from Watershed, then your reservation is confirmed because we know that the payment will be coming from Airbnb.
Arrival is generally unattended as you go directly to the unit and there is a lockbox at the door (combination is provided in the aforementioned packet). We are there if you need us, but you may not even see us if you don't need anything.
Pets are $10/night additional per pet, and there is a 2 pet maximum. You must assure that your pets do not bother other guests, if any, staying in the 2 other units. Airbnb system can't add the pet fee, so you must pay that separately.
Note : Photos will be a collection of all 3 units and not specific to any one unit, but it notes that other than color differences, the units are all virtually the same.
Pets allowed for $10/night additional fee per pet
Our stay was amazing. A perfect combination of outdoors and contemporary. Close to great restaurants and a lot of outdoor activities. We will definitely be returning.
We had a great experience staying at the watershed resort. Everything we needed and more was available. We appreciated the updated and modern decor and furnishings. The location was convenient and it was an excellent place to relax.
What a great cabin! It's probably our favorite rental we've ever had. It is just gorgeous, both rustic and hip, and perfectly situated. It's in a development with plenty of other vacation homes in the same vicinity, but you feel like you're in your own private secret spot due to how well it's all laid out. Just so many thoughtful touches--the deck is large and almost completely secluded, with super clean private hot tub and fire pit, the wifi works shockingly well, there are tons of windows for natural light and views, the gas fireplace was killer, there are even heated floors in the bathroom. And we could bring our dog! The lack of an oven we knew going in, and while it would have been nice to have one since we like to cook a lot, the small kitchen is well set up otherwise, so you can definitely do major cooking. Perfect spot for a chill getaway for a couple looking to hole up in the mountains for a bit.
We absolutely loved our stay in the Watershed Lofts. The loft is a perfect size for 2, and the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beautiful forest make you feel like you're in a treehouse. The architecture and modern touches give this mountain getaway a 5 star hotel feel, but better. Day 1 we didn't feel like venturing out much after the drive, but all the activities on the property allow you to get outside the cabin and explore without getting in your car. The hike to the waterfall was beautiful and slightly strenuous, but they thought of everything with stairs, railings and lighting throughout the trail. Then we went to the "Yard" to watch the sunset on the swinging bed, WOW! Great view, comfy setting, couldn't have asked for more. Then we returned to grill out dinner and hang out by the fire pit. Got to meet our friendly neighbors and share stories. It was pretty much the perfect day, and we are really sad to leave. If we ever have a family reunion or getaway with our friends, this is where we will be coming back to. Thanks for cresting such a magical space, Tim!!
We loved our stay at Woodland lofts! The cabin itself was fantastic. It had all the amenities we had hoped for, and the interior was great. Beautiful views both inside and out. I wish I had asked for more time off so I could have stayed longer.
Already making plans to come back next year.
Abloutely the most amazing trip to the mountains!!!!!! That's what my husband and I have been telling each other (and everyone we know).
Absolutely stunning little cabin nestled in the trees, high on a mountain. As soon as we opened the door to our cabin our dogs charged in, quickly sniffed the place and looked at us excitingly. Excellently designed and styled, this cabin makes you feel as if your home.
The incredibly beautiful mountain views, the interesting hiking trails, and the responsive/friendly staff make the experience of staying in this cabin truly remarkable.
Honestly........it's as if a group of experienced travelers and vacationers got together and dreamed this place up.
Great cabin, will recommend it to only our closest friends and family.
My boyfriend, 4-month old puppy, and I were frantically searching for a rental at the very last minute (7PM on the day the rental was needed) as a prior reservation fell through. We contacted Tim and received a response in under 30 minutes! Communication was very thorough from Tim and his staff from start to finish. The cabin is exactly as the pictures portray it- with many added luxuries such as a memory foam mattress, heated tiles in the bathroom, temperature control in each individual room, a hot tub under the stars, and a fully equipped kitchen. After the crazy day we had, arriving at the rental couldn't have been more peaceful and needed. The property is well maintained, quiet, and scenic. There are short hikes available, and plenty of information on surrounding activities (hiking, kayaking, rafting, zip lining) if you should desire. Bryson City also accommodates visitors splendidly with quaint but tasty dining options. We had no prior plans to visit Bryson City, or the Watershed Cabins but we're so glad we did! Thanks to Tim for his speedy response time and exceptional customer service.

Watershed Cabins is a collection of luxury cabins in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. The Woodland Loft units are a unique style and as such, we feel they would be of particular interest to Airbnb users. We have thus listed the loft units here. You can also see our full collection of cabins at the company website for Watershed Cabins. That website also has an "area attractions" page that you might find useful.
