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.

Everything was great
We rented 4 of the Ol Smoky Log Cabins (3-6) so each family could have their own cabin. It was the perfect location for visiting Cherokee. You could not ask for better. We could fish right out back, swim in the river, look for crawfish, and even walk up the road to put our tubes in the river and float back down to our cabin to get out. There is a Food Lion about 5 minutes away and shops all around. It is not in the middle of the woods or anything, which I enjoyed. It is seconds from the town and minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. We saw elk crossing the road, in the river, and grazing by the Blue Ridge Parkway welcome center. We also saw an otter by our cabin! The cabins are simple, nothing fancy. They are dark inside and you can sleep late if you desire due to the curtains that block all sun. That was actually very nice. You can hear people moving around everywhere and can hear from the bathroom to the kitchen due to the walls and how they were structured, but that didn't bother us either. We stayed for a week and so reused the 12 towels they left for us (6 of us in the cabin and no washer-dryer). We had to replenish toilet paper, dish soap, and trash bags. So be prepared if you are a large family like ours staying for a week. We also bought small baking pans, mixing bowls, and serving spoons/spatulas as there wasn't any of that. We found each cabin had different things. We just stopped at the Dollar Store in Sylva and got them for the week. We did have a toaster, microwave, very small oven (but it worked no problem!), and some basic pans and small pots. Beware of the refrigerator slightly freezing items in the back as well. Just come prepared with what you'll need. The beds were comfortable, too! We had the other families over for dinner on the porch as we grilled. Very easy check-in/out process! I would absolutely recommend this place!
Great location. Under new management.
My family and I would like to thank the folks at Yellow Rose for their kindness and friendly stay. This trip was exceptional and Ol'Smokey was comfortable and highly recommended.

We would come back in a heartbeat. The cabin was perfect and so peaceful right on the river. The location was unbeatable.
A simple clean cabin with a big deck overlooking the water.
Location is great, right on the river with easy access for fishing. Good size. Beds were decent. Definitely a rustic cabin, if you're looking for fancy this isn't it. No central air or WiFi. Was good for what we were looking for and location was good. Had decent cell service with AT&T.
Though it wasn't the cabin we rented, due to snow our cabin you could not get to. They were able to find this cabin for only 2 nights, not our 4 nights. Location was amazing right on the river. TV could use an update. Rooms, beds, fireplace were great!
It was quiet peaceful and tranquil all together an overall great experience woth plenty of things to do and see will be usong one of thier property's again
A couple of days with my favorite aunts. We enjoyed the convenience of the location to town. Sitting on the back porch swing watching the elk walk along the stream edge was the best.
