About Michael Davis

After hiking the Smokies for many years I discovered the Bryson City / Deep Creek area in 2012 and fell in love with it so much I decided to relocate here. Found my dream home which included a guest house which I have decided to rent out part time. Absolutely love all the beautiful scenery and outdoor activities.

Michael Davis purchased this barn in 2013

Why Michael Davis chose Bryson City

At 3000 feet elevation this place has beautiful views of the mountains and spectacular sunsets. The central location to rafting, boating, hiking and Bryson City couldn't be better.

What makes this barn unique

In less than 20 minutes or less you can get to Nantahala National Forest hiking, Fontana Reservoir boating / fishing, trout fishing in numerous creeks, kayaking / rafting at the Nantahala river, Smoky Mountain National Park hiking / tubing at Deep Creek and lots of fun activities and good food / drinks in Bryson City.

Beautiful getaway in the Smokies

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son (teenager) and dog had a great time in the shanty. The location is off the beaten path and secluded with just a few homes around. The view is worth it all!! The mountain views and sunset from the front porch are amazing. The view of the stars from the balcony and lightning bugs that light up the trees like a Christmas tree at night are priceless. The home was clean and homey and had everything we needed for our stay. We plan to visit again.

Mike and Enola (gorgeous little Shepherd mix pup) were great hosts. He was very polite and gracious throughout our visit. I would highly recommend this rental.

This is a great place for a quiet getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed recharging after some stressful events and our weekend here did the trick. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. The back deck is awesome and perfect for watching the sunset.The bathroom is a bit tight if you're girthy but we managed just fine. The owner is very hospitable and sincerely kind. We would definitely consider staying again.
