To book your perfect vacation just fill in your arrival and departure date and get our best price.
Our log cabins are located on the Cherokee Indian Reservation, which is adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park; the most visited National Park in America. This part of Western North Carolina offers beautiful scenery with it's majestic mountains, crystal clear streams and rivers, waterfalls, hiking trails and more.
Each of our log cabins has a full front porch just a few feet away from the Oconaluftee River, which offers some of the best trout fishing around. This river is stocked twice a week with brown and rainbow trout. Fly fishermen can enjoy the “catch and release” waters with trophy sized fish just minutes away…so don’t forget your fishing gear!!! This river also provides a great place for rafting, tubing, and even swimming.
We're easy to get to and our location is great. We're 1/8 of a mile from the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, yet we're about the same distance to shopping, restaurants and more. We're 1 mile from the Outdoor Drama, Cherokee Museum and the Oconaluftee Indian Village. Feel lucky? We're only 2 miles from Cherokee Harrah's Casino.
We consider our cabins to be semi-secluded. You're not way back in the woods, yet you're not in the middle of town. We have 6 log cabins lining the riverbank. The view across the river is forest land with no development. The cabins are separated by full deck areas, 8-15 feet in size. The back of the cabins are about 50 feet from Big Cove Road, which is a local side road with low to moderate traffic. We believe you'll find the setting peaceful and enjoyable.
As you can tell, we can offer you an action packed vacation, or you can relax in your rocking chair and watch the river flow by, it's up to you!

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.

Always a pleasure to arrive at the cabin. Very clean and tidy and close to everything we want to do.
Spent a entire week of pure relaxation. Not a care in the world. Waking up each morning taking in the beautiful sights and sounds of the early morning mountain river flowing by. The only concern being will I see the elk today as I venture out on my quest for trout. The cabin was great. A perfect location and very spacious. The rental process was simple and the property management was pleasant to deal with also. Plan to continue this vacation annually.
Plenty of space in the back and the view is beautiful!
Great; we've been renting at Ol' Smoky since 2012; great location, etc. Would like to see the couch replaced. Great to see new TV.
It was clean and relaxing. We had a great time. Love the porch and rocking chairs. Comfortable beds. Just needed more towels and wash clothes. Excellent vacation spot. We will be back
We loved the setting on the river and the deck.we will return .the only problem was the deck needed to be blown off. Also the cabin needs a good cleaning.
I enjoyed my family time with my children and my mother even stayed . It was a very private moment . No bad bug infestation. Clean cooking and grilling area . Nice deep part of the river for my teenage to swim.
perfect place to stay. great place to fish and close to the casino! I would stay here again!!!
Been staying in these cabins for years, generally multiple times a year. Great location and always well maintained and clean. Perfect for our needs. Biggest challenge can be some inconsistency from cabin to cabin and a little wear and tear creeping in. For example, the silverware cabinet drawer is falling apart, very few forks, dish sprayer handle came apart, screen door missing to the porch, ash shovel missing, toilet paper holder in downstairs bedroom broken, no sheet pans for oven or strainer for pasta and rinsing vegetables, and TV was not working correctly with extremely snowy picture. We haven’t experienced these issues during previous stays. Hopefully, they will get corrected before our next stay in the fall.
This was my 3rd visit to this property. I definitely recommend Dena when making your reservation. The Cabins were in a transitional period from the owners over to Yellowrose Reality.
Betsy the owner of the property stopped by to
see how we were doing. She helped us get our fire going. Betsy & Her husband have owned these cabins for 30 years.
I have only one complaint-The bed linens & Towels were scented. I have allergies and asthma but I had brought my own bed linens, pillows & towels. We stayed in and enjoyed the porch, creek & fireplace and we also used the grill. We cooked all our meals, drank coffee & hot chocolate by the fire and on the porch.
We ventured out to see the Elk at the Great Smokie Mts. Visitor Center-5 mins. from our cabin-we counted 74!
We highly recommend a stay at "Ole Smokey Log Cabins".
Dont forget to ask for Dena
