The Cabins at Nantahala

Bryson City, NC 28713



Q: “Are you pet friendly?”

A: We are sorry, but pets are not permitted to stay at our cabins. If you absolutely must travel with your animals, we suggest searching here for a pet friendly cabin facility.

Q: “Are your cabins Smoke Free?”

A: Yes. All of our cabins are smoke free. While smoking is permitted outside on the decks, smoking is prohibited inside our cabins or inside the bathhouse.

Q: “Is there firewood there or do I need to bring my own?”

A: There is plenty of firewood here. You can either burn the plentiful deadwood we have on the property or you can purchase firewood located near the office for $4 a bundle. The forest service has requested that no firewood be brought in from outside the Nantahala National Forest. This will help combat the introduction of new parasites and diseases to our fragile forest. If you choose to burn deadwood, a camp saw is highly recommended for cutting the big branches into manageable pieces.

Q: “What’s up with the crazy names?”

A: We’ve named all of our cabins after local rivers and streams. The names Nantahala, Oconaluftee and Tuckaseegee are phonetic spellings of the original Cherokee names.

Q: “What is a bunk cabin?”

A: Our bunk cabins are one-room cabins with bunk futon beds that can sleep up to six people. They are perfect for folks who are on a budget. They have a microwave oven and small refrigerator. Remember cooking in your dorm room?  There is also a picnic table, charcoal grill and fire ring included with a bunk cabin. You just need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow and a towel. The bathhouse is just a short hike up the trail.

Q: “What’s there to do around there?”

A: There’s so much to do, you’ll never do it all. Some suggestions can be found in our activities pages. We will keep adding to these suggestions as we get around to doing new things ourselves. Please share with us any worthwhile activities you’ve done while visiting us. We are always looking for fun and interesting things to do.

Q: “How do I book a cabin?”

A: You can book two ways. Call our toll free number or book online by clicking "Reservations" at the top of the page. You can also check the availability of a specific cabin without committing to a reservation.

Q: “Can I check availability without having to call?”

A: You sure can. You can check availability by clicking the reservations link at the top of this page.

Q: “How much will it cost?”

A: Our rates range from as low as $65 to $230 per night per cabin depending on the season and size of the cabin. Click on the "Rates and Policies" link to the left to see the specific rate for each cabin.

Q: “How close are you to NOC?”

A: We’re exactly one mile from the Nantahala Outdoor Center and the Appalachian Trail.  Tsali Recreational Area and Fontana Lake are less than five miles away. If you look at our area map, you’ll see that we are very convenient to all of the popular attractions including the national park, scenic railway and the casino.

Q: “ How many people can you accommodate?”

A:  Our Nantahala House can accommodate up to ten people comfortably making it perfect for two families vacationing together. Our camping cabins and one bedroom cabins can sleep up to six while our studio cabin accommodates up to five.  Our maximum capacity for the entire facility is 51 people.

Q: “What about large groups?”

A: We have rented to large school and church groups in the past and look forward to doing so in the future. With a centrally located bathhouse, plenty of parking and multiple picnic areas, our facility is ideal for groups up to 51 persons.

Q: “ When’s check-in and check-out?”

A: Check-in is anytime after 3pm. Checkout is at 10am. If you need to check in earlier or check out later, just give us a call. Many times we can accommodate you.

Q: “What’s included with the cabins?”

A: All of the cabins are air-conditioned and have wireless internet on property. A picnic area with table, fire ring and charcoal grill is included with each cabin.

The Nantahala House has everything you could want for a comfortable stay in the mountains. The fully equipped kitchen has everything for preparing and serving a gourmet meal plus there is a dishwasher and garbage disposal to help with the clean up afterwards. The house also includes a large capacity washer and dryer making an extended stay more practical. All bath and bed linens are provided with the Nantahala House.

The studio and one-bedroom cabins have fully equipped kitchens, full baths with a tub shower and all linens are provided. They also have satellite television and access to wireless internet. These smaller cabins do not have any laundry facilities. 

The one-room cabins include a small refrigerator and microwave oven. Bunk beds provide the sleeping accommodations for these cabins. No linens are provided so remember to bring a sleeping bag, pillow and a towel.

Q: “Is it going to rain?”

A:  Well that would depend on the weather. All kidding aside, rain is very common in our region with an average of about 60 inches of precipitation a year. Summer time can be hot and humid during the day but the evenings always cool to the upper 60’s. Spring and Fall can also have very pleasant, warm days but the nights will definitely be much cooler. Winter is the most unpredictable time of year with days that can sometimes reach the seventies and nights that fall to near zero.
