Antler Ridge is located in a gated community, just off Highway 28 a few minutes from the Almond Boat Dock on Fontana Lake and another public lake access spot for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing. Antler Ridge is nestled on the side of a mountain with woods on three sides of the cabin and overlooking a gorgeous smoky mountain view. Any season of the year will provide a beautiful view of both mountains close up and mountain ranges far away. The drive to Antler Ridge is on a paved road that climbs the mountains to reach a majestic smoky mountain view. The mountain biking mecca of the eastern United States, Tsali Recreation Center is less than 10 minutes away. White water rafting on the Nantahala river is about a 15 minute trip away. Shopping, restaurants, train tours and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park are about 25 minutes away in Bryson City. The many shops, main entrance to the GSMNP and the cultural center or the Eastern Band the Cherokee Indians is about a 35 minute trip up highway 74 from the cabin.

When you arrive at this cabin you will park on a gravel parking area behind the cabin. You can pull right up close to a set of stairs leading to the main deck and entrance. Here is where your journey to Antler Ridge becomes worth any and every effort; for, as you step onto the large side deck the beautiful view of the smoky mountains fills the horizon in front of you. This view seems to fill every part of this cabin, exterior and interior. The main entrance is a sliding glass door to the left of the stairs. The large side deck is the primary spot for outdoor activities. A picnic table is positioned across from the entrance to the kitchen and under the shading cover of the upper deck for dining out side in the fresh forested air. Past the picnic table the deck opens up to the sky above. On a bumped out portion of the deck by itself sets a most inviting sight after a long day of playing and touring throughout the smoky mountains; a large professionally cleaned and private hot tub. Across from the hot tub and surrounded by Adirondack-style rocking chairs is a large outdoor wood-burning fireplace. Sitting in front of a glowing fire while watching the sun set over the mountain view as the stars fill in the sky above is a smoky mountain experience to be remembered for years to come. A gas grill is also positioned on the deck to allow your grill master a view of the mountains as they are cooking their favorite meal. Propane and utensils are provided at the cabin. The deck continues to wrap-around across the front of the cabin where several more Adirondack-style rocking chairs provide a relaxing spot to watch the clouds drift over and through the mountain view. From here the deck continues to wrap around the cabin to the forest shaded side. Ending at a covered area where a sliding glass door opens to the bedroom on the entry level. The cover of this area is actually the private balcony of the bedroom on the top floor. Also on the top floor of the cabin is the deck that covers the picnic table and front entrance. This deck is also covered and has seating for four guest to enjoy the view while waiting a turn at the pool table just inside a set of sliding glass doors. The lower deck is accessible from the yard or from the lower level master suite. A pair of chairs offer a place to enjoy a morning coffee outside while watching the mist of the smoky mountains rise from the valleys below. The exterior of this beautiful smoky mountain log cabin offers as much to do as the interior. . .

Floor to ceiling glass windows, and sliding glass doors allow you to have a mountain view from anywhere in this beautifully decorated cabin. Entering at the main level, you will be in the dining room and kitchen area. The dining room table is set up for 8 guests at the table.

 Policies for Carolina Mountain Vacations Pet-Friendly Cabins

There are potential consequences for bringing an unauthorized pet onto any CMV property.


1.  For pet friendly cabins, there is a one time $45 non-refundable pet fee for each pet up to a max of 3 pets.  Any misrepresentation regarding the number of pets at the cabin will be charged accordingly.

2.  Pets are only permitted with prior approval.  Be sure to notify us if you are bringing a dog to one of our pet-friendly cabins. If prior approval has not been authorized and there is evidence of a pet having been at the property, the penalty may include a $200 charge, immediate removal of the pet and eviction from the cabin with the forfeiture of all rental payments.

3.  CMV only accepts well-behaved, housebroken dogs into our pet friendly cabins.  Even though we love all pets, we regret that we are unable to allow any animals other than dogs in our rental cabins.  Absolutely no cats are permitted in CMV rental cabins.  For the purpose of this agreement, the term “pet” is always used in reference to a dog. In the interest of protection your dog, a leash should always be used when your dog is outside.  While North Carolina does not have a state leash law, please note that cities and counties may have stricter regulations.  No dog shall be tied outside the Cabin unless supervised by a responsible adult

4.  As a general rule, dogs should not be left unattended in cabins.  In an unfamiliar environment dogs may act uncharacteristically and unpredictably.  They may get nervous and bark, causing a disturbance to neighbors.  Or they may harm the cabin by chewing, scratching or making messes that they would not typically make at home.  Please remember to be respectful of nearby neighbors.  Always use a crate in the rare event that a dog must be left alone.

5.  Legal Disclaimer:  Any damages to the cabin or cabin property or another person because of a pet will be the sole responsibility of the registered Guest.  Guests are held financially responsible for all physical damages to the Cabin (i.e. chewing, scratching, flea infestation, etc.) inflicted on the Cabin by the presence of a pet.  If extra cleaning is deemed reasonable due to the presence of a pet (i.e. soiled furniture and/or flooring, hair on furnishings or bedding, fleas), the Guest will be held financially responsible and the credit card on file will be charged for the amount of the repair/recovery.  CMV is not responsible for harm caused to any pet.
