  • A good first experience....


    The little ElaShores canin neighborhod is a convenient place to stay when wnting to engage in the Bryson City, and Smokey Mountain activities. It is river side, but the cabins on the river were already reserved. The other units are a real bargin! Cean, well stocked, comfortable, and David was responsive and helpful. When next in this area we book again. We were in Unit #4, Bear's Den.

  • Great cabin in a prime location!


    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ela Shores cabin. All the basic amenities included, comfortable bed, and the best views of the river. Candace and Jennifer do a wonderful job keeping the cabins clean and tidy. Great location between Bryson City and Cherokee, so there was plenty to do when not enjoying the great Outdoors. We will definitely be coming back soon!
