About

Welcome to our home on Deep Creek. We’d like to make your Bryson City,NC vacation rental experience a magical one. Tube, swim and fish right out your back door. We have a comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom ranch style home on 300′ of Deep Creek, a tubing and trout fishing stream.

Visit Bryson City,NC in the Smoky Mtns, a quaint town nestled along the Tuckaseegee River in Swain County, North Carolina. Most everything downtown is within walking distance. There are specialty shops, family owned restaurants, and the Great Smoky Mountain Railway. Let the train ride take you through some breathtaking scenic areas into the Nantahala Gorge. A visit to Clampitt’s Hardware is also a must for just about everyone in the family.

We are both originally from West Virginia, but Kathy’s family has lived in Bryson City for several decades. We spent a portion of our honeymoon here, and started camping here in 1993. Chestnut Lodge was originally the “Ole Hyatt Home Place”. We purchased it in 1999 with the hope of eventually retiring here. After four years as a rental property, we decided to try vacation rental, allowing us to also spend vacations here and not in the campground.

Many things have changes; much less wallpaper and more paint, a metal roof, a screened porch and deck, central air and heat, completely new hall bathroom, and the list just goes on and on. Most recently Dave removed all the wrought iron from the front porch to add wooden beams and banisters, a look we have wanted for quite some time. The point is, we love it here. Our families love it and it is our sincere hope that you will have the best vacation experience and come back to Chestnut Lodge again and again.
