About Bryan

We fell in love with the serenity, mountain view, and this is a great place to reconnect with friends and family.

Bryan purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Bryan chose Robbinsville

Being here feels like you are in a treetop house, it's secluded yet only a short drive to civilization and tons of outdoor activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Our stay at the Big Swag was absolutely phenomenal. Not only is it set in the gorgeous Smoky Mountains, but it's very private, spacious, and just cozy in general. Everything about the listing is accurate- the hot tub was AWESOME, the fireplace and firepit were wonderful and kept us warm. The directions provided were definitely needed as there is no service on the road to get out there, but wifi when you get to the cabin! I will add to bring your own paper products for the kitchen, but we were informed ahead of time that we should bring whatever we want to use to cook (olive oil, butter, salt, pepper, etc.) Overall and fantastic stay and it was our friends' first time using Airbnb so my husband and I enjoyed being able to spread the word about it. I kept saying that if I owned a mountain cabin, it would be just like this one. Thanks so much- highly recommend this cabin!”

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time, thank you Brian. The place was spotless and all the amenities worked, thank God for the Hot Tub after we "Experienced" Riders got back from a long day. We had 2 full size pick ups towing 18' enclosed trailers and though it was tight we made the driveway no problem. If you are on a motorcycle and are a Novice this driveway may not be for you, but if you are even a rider of some experience it is fine. I highly recommend the Big Swag Lodge if you are looking for a quiet place to relax in this phenomenal area.

Very nice getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Big Swag and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I was actually sad we didn’t book for longer.

First off, I’m one of those people that will read every review before making a decision about something - so for the people out there like me, this is for you!

Bryan was very nice. He responded quickly and was very accommodating. The house was very nice and eat-off-the-floor clean!! It was well-stocked with everything one would need.. we didn’t have to leave the house, and we didn’t because it rained... the views are awesome and the one bedroom (w/bathroom) is actually in the loft so you can see the mountains from the big triangular window that you are facing when you wake up. There are two bedrooms on the main floor that share a bathroom and a sofa bed in the extremely spacious basement (w/a three piece bathroom).. there is a washer and dryer too. The house is nicely decorated- I kept thinking “rustic elegance”. There are two decks with chairs, a swing, bbq grill, hot tub and fire pit!! What? I said EVERYTHING! The rental office even gives you a welcome call and asks if there is anything you need. We wanted to extend our stay for a few more hours and they allowed it. There is a cute guestbook to sign, which is a nice touch. I would definitely stay again. One thing though, if you go up late at night, although the road is well-lit, it is steep, so look for the street sign that says “Tranquility”.. something (maybe Place). ..and make a very careful right from the sign. The house is right there. Oh and there is no phone service so screenshot the WiFi info before you get there or you’ll be without it. Have fun!!

Thanks Bryan for a fun time that was had by all!

Perfect winter gettaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect winter getaway to celebrate post Christmas and New Years Eve. The cabin was clean and well equipped to handle the cold with a fireplace, firepit and got tub. The full basement was perfect for games and coffee/TV for early risers and an extra place to sleep. This was everything i would expect in a cabin gettaway.

Perfect getaway for a holiday weekend

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I—7 adults, 2 kids, and the pup—spent the Thanksgiving weekend at Big Swag and it was the perfect place for us to enjoy our holiday meal, unwind, and watch all the football. We prepared a beautiful thanksgiving feast while taking in the mountain views, and the rec room was a great place for us to play games after the little ones went to bed. Bryson City and Robbinsville were about 30 minutes away and provided shopping, entertainment, and hiking options for our late-November trip. Thank you Bryan, we enjoyed our stay!

We had an amazing time! Will be returning!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an incredible time! House was clean, well stocked with everything we needed. Plenty of room if you have a larger group but also really nice for a small group like what we had. Hot tub was well maintained and outdoor fire pit was great. Such a relaxing trip!!

The county recently changed the name of the road and subsequent house address to: 38 Tranquility Pines. Maps have not yet updated but there is a road sign for Tranquility Pines, along with the signs pointing to Big Swag Lodge so you'll have no problem finding the cabin.
