Panoramic Mountain View! Tsali Sunrise

Lakefront cabin with kitchen and patio
Tsali Sunrise is the premier vacation cabin for all coming to Western NC. At this home, you can get a breath-taking panoramic view just off the main highway, with very limited noise from the road. This 3bed, 2bath cabin is handicapped-friendly and motorcycle-friendly.

This cabin has a king bed in the master suite, which also holds a bathroom and laundry room. Just off the living room are the second and third bedrooms, which house two twin beds, a queen bed, and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. Sleeper sofa is also in the living room.

While you're here, know that everyone in the family will find something to enjoy:

The outdoors lover will love the accessibility to the Tsali bike trails and hiking trails all around the property - not to mention that the home borders the National Forest Service land!

The fisherman of the family will appreciate the 1.4 mile drive to the Tsali and Lemons Branch boat launches into Fontana Lake, or maybe would rather go with the best fly fishing in the South in Bryson City.

If you're looking for some relaxation, take a load off while enjoying your morning coffee on the deck. As the fog rises off the lake view, you start to see the sunrise off to the left of the deck, just over the mountains. Plenty of wildlife will keep you entertained, from seeing turkey, deer, and especially hummingbirds.

And for the more adventure-minded, be assured that you have plenty to do all around this home. Try going to one of the local marinas to rent a pontoon boat, or rafting/zip-lining at the Nantahala Outdoor Center (five minute drive). And if it's a rainy day, try the local shops in Bryson City (ten minute drive) or take a day trip over to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge (one hour drive).

At nights, bring the family together for s'mores on the deck while the sun sets on the other side of the home. At night, the wide-open sky has very little light so you will find yourself staring up at the stars in wonder. In the meantime, we've left plenty of board games and playing cards for the whole family.

Owner's note: When we first decided to turn this home into a vacation rental, we wanted to make sure that this home could be a place that brings families together. In today's world, life is crazy... Your phone is constantly ringing, our kids are always playing games, and families should be closer but find themselves more distant than ever. Though the cell phone reception may be good at this home, we encourage you to disconnect from the outer world and focus on each other and reconnecting the family. Even if this home isn't for you, while you're in the mountains, use this time to connect with your family. In the end, that's all we have. Thank you!

Of note: Tsali Sunrise neighbors one other home (Tsali Sunset; search "9070585ha" in VRBO/HomeAway search box). This home is available for rent with Tsali Sunrise, and includes a pathway between the two homes. Both are secluded from any other neighbors, and combined can sleep 14.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this cabin offer fireplaces and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations and hair dryers.
Recreational amenities at the cabin include a spa tub.

The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

Magnificent views at a great cabin with stellar hosts
Great cabin for 5 people and dog friendly! Magnificent views in a prime location. Owners are stellar hosts and went above and beyond to make sure we were safe during a winter storm advisory. We will definitely be back to enjoy the gorgeous views. The hot tub was superbly clean and like new. Overall this was a wonderful experience and we highly recommend staying here.

Sweet Cabin
This is a really great cabin in a really great location. The owners are experienced and know what they’re doing. They’ll be able to walk you through anything that comes up. The home is not too secluded but also not too close to town. It really is the perfect getaway. My family loved it and we’ll be back again for sure.

Just perfect
The view is spectacular. The layout of the home is perfect for grandparents, children and grands. We had the upstairs (only 5 steps, perfect since I just had knee replacement) master bedroom suite. The kiddos had their own bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom. The Christmas tree was lit when we entered and everything was sparkling clean. We had a wonderful "short' mini vacay and rode the Polar Express in Bryson City. I suggest adding a few more wine glasses. We only found 1. Some of us drank out of coffee mugs. :). Still tasted good. Thank you Pat! Kelly
