Choose our Cullisia rental cabin for your Smoky Mountains getaway and step back in time to the late 19th century.
The Cullisia cabin was originally constructed in the Laurel community near Marshall, North Carolina around 1892. The LL Merchants Company out of Asheville and the Presbyterians hired Jim Leake and Lump Norton to build the cabin for use as a mission and a doctor's office. All the logs were hand hewn.
To move the cabin, the logs were numbered and taken down one by one. In 2012 we rebuilt the cabin beside a mountain creek on East Cullisia Road in the Alarka community near Bryson City, NC.
We used reclaimed materials for the floor, walls and exterior gable ends. All of the logs and much of the inside paneling is native American Chestnut.
Most of the furniture is hand-made from reclaimed materials, using such old time techniques as mortise and tenoning. The heart pine bead board used in the downstairs bedroom was reclaimed from a one-room schoolhouse in Bryson City.
Rest assured, Cullisia features countless improvements over the original cabin with it's more primitive 'comforts'. The cabin has all the features and amenities for today's lifestyles while preserving the nostalgia of a 19th century mountain homestead.

Before you pack up the car and head for the mountains, know that when we say mountains, we really mean it!
Downtown Bryson City has an elevation of 1,752 feet, so think of this as a starting point. The majority of our cabins will have a higher elevation than this. This means that our roads- both state and private- will be steeper, narrower, and curvier than you may be use to driving. Also, you should expect to encounter gravel roads. Consider it part of our rural mountain charm!
Here at Yellow Rose, your safety is our priority. If a cabin requires 4 wheel, front wheel, or all wheel drive to access it, it will be listed in the description. If bringing or riding motorcycles, please call and ask for motorcycle friendly properties. If you have any concerns about accessing your rental, please call prior to your arrival and we will be happy to discuss it with you.

Second time staying here. So peaceful and cozy. Looking forward to our Oct stay.
We had a wonderful time staying in Cullisia Cabin and working with your team as well. We know the owner has a passion for his craft and we felt as if we were in his home. We will be coming back as it was so comfortable and the perfect retreat.
I had actually found the cabin online a couple of years ago and was finally able to get there, I don't know what took me so long! It is close to so many activities, Bryson City is just terrific and small.
Thank you for a wonderful and peaceful stay, and yes secluded! It is so quiet all we heard was the creek and breeze in the trees. Anxiously planning our next excursion.
Thank you and many blessings to you all,
Kathy and Mark
We loved the cabin! The only thing I can complain about is the gas logs would never come on. That’s why I can only give 4 stars for general because after fly fishing in the cold water, I’d love to have come back and sit by the fire! We called and they said that it was probably too hot but it was 50 degrees so I’m not sure. I also wish there were measuring cups in the kitchen drawers but it didn’t keep us from cooking!
The creek is beautiful! We grilled and built a fire! The cabin though is so cozy and secluded! It was perfect!
Efficient use of limited space. The living and dining area spacious enough for 4. We did a lot of cooking and found the kitchen to be adequate. Upstairs bath a little tight.Loved the porch swing and sound of the creek. No propane in tank so the fireplace was not usable. Nice privacy.
It was the perfect location and just what we were looking for in a relaxing weekend.
Beautiful Cabin in the Mountains.
Exactly as advertised.
we could not have asked for a more perfect rental! the ONLY issue we had was not knowing what the cleaning products by the kitchen sink were for...and that is in no way a complaint!
We had an amazing and relaxing birthday weekend.
