The majority of North Carolinians assert that autumn is the best season because of the perfectly crisp mountain air, breathtaking fall foliage, and countless outdoor festivals and activities. Watershed Cabins, based out of Bryson City, North Carolina, has the premier selection of overlook vacation rentals in the Smoky Mountains. Many of our luxury cabins are situated high in the picturesque mountains. In each cabin, you’ll have a birds-eye view of the colorful splendor that we call home. The western North Carolina Smoky Mountains are painted every autumn a breathtaking fusion of amber, emerald, marigold, and crimson by Mother Nature’s skillful paintbrush. Start planning a fall journey to stunning Bryson City by analyzing these five overlook cabins.
Brown Bear Lodge
The Brown Bear Lodge features one of the best lookouts in the Smoky Mountains from the main deck, which is equipped with an outdoor hot tub. Watch the stunning valley come to life every morning with a steaming cup of Joe on the overlook as the sun’s rays revive the forest’s newly found color. This three-bedroom, three-bathroom paradise rests in the glorious mountainous countryside south of Bryson City.
Eagle’s Nest Hideaway
This luxury cabin has – as its name suggests – a birds-eye view of the vast Smoky Mountains. The Eagle’s Nest Hideaway, much like many of our mountain cabins, has a stunning main deck, an outdoor hot tub, a cozy log-home interior, and is near the Nantahala Outdoor Center. You’ll want to spend nearly every second on the main deck, even after the sun goes down – stargazing at the Eagle’s Nest is second-to-none!
Mountain Elegance is an ultra-secluded luxury cabin near the Tuckasegee River – perfect for fly fishing enthusiasts! The Smoky Mountain vistas are merely one of the many perks of this getaway as the large property has a beautiful fire pit and picnic area near the edge of the valley. This 2,000 square foot paradise also has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a wood-burning stone fireplace, and a relaxing porch swing.
Sunset Falls is a modern luxury cabin with granite countertops, sleek decor, giant bay windows, and an immaculate walk-in shower. The genuinely awe-inspiring back patio somehow outdoes the entire newly constructed vacation home. The stone-floored patio has a modern fire pit that’s surrounded by Adirondack chairs. You’ll have sweeping views of the colorful, picturesque Smoky Mountains from this majestic outdoor space.
Big Sky Lodge
The Big Sky Lodge rests approximately 500 feet from the Brown Bear Lodge on Sawmill Springs Road. This luxury cabin is at a higher elevation, making it feel as if you’re in the clouds. The fall color on this mountain property is exquisite, especially from the walkout main deck and outdoor hot tub. You’ll have the opportunity to witness stunning sunsets and distant Fontana Lake vistas.
