    This was the cutest little cottage overlooking the river. We would definitely stay here again! Super clean!

  • Amazing anniversary


    We spent most of our time in the cabin. It's in a small community, but we never felt crowded. This is probably the most private cabin on the property. We loved being right on the river. And the elk were amazing! Never had to drive to see the elk, they wander up into the feild beside the cabin. We even had a female bed down directly across the river from us for most of the day. It's also only about 20 minutes from Cherokee, so convenient to the casino if that's what you like.

  • Ela Shores - River House


    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the serenity and privacy of the Ela Shores River House. It was so relaxing staying there. We enjoyed the wonderful views of the river and wildlife. The cabin was a great location for getting where we needed to go each day. It was fun to explore Bryson City and the surrounding areas. We took the Nantahala Gorge Steam Train ride one day. We also drove to Asheville and visited the Biltmore Estate. That was truly the highlight of our week long trip!
