Press Trip: Bryson City, North Carolina, USA. would like to extend an invitation to qualified journalists to experience their luxury lodging accommodations located in the Great Smoky Mountains in Bryson City, North Carolina.

An easy, drivable destination from most major cities in the southeast - 3 hours or less from Atlanta, Charlotte, Chattanooga and Knoxville. 5 hours or less from Raleigh and Nashville. Excellent customer service and upscale cabins have made this vacation company one of the most valuable mountain adventure getaways for travelers at this time.

Watershed offers a wide variety of cabins ranging from the 1 bedroom Treehouse unit (units in a 4-plex building, each with private deck and hot tub) to a 5-bedroom lodge that will sleep 15 or more people. The modern, luxurious décor sets Watershed cabins apart from the rest. Guests may find amenities such as, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, surround-sound systems, 600 thread count Egyptian cotton linens, down comforters, pillow-top mattresses and every single unit has a hot tub that stays piping hot 12 months a year --not your typical sparse cabin rental in the woods. Customer service is important as well so we are available to guests 24 hours a day.

The breathtaking, rugged mountain environment is more mountainous than the north Georgia mountains, and considered an unspoiled beauty compared to the more developed areas of a Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge, TN type. A wonderful destination for a wide variety of activities including whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River (an excellent beginner-level river), hiking on the Appalachian Trail and other area trails, water sports on Fontana Lake, excellent fly fishing, trout, and family activities like a trip to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville (only 1 hour away) or a ride on the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. The 75th anniversary celebration of Great Smoky Mountains National Park is also under way as of March 2009. With more than 8 million annual visitors, it is the country's most popular national park and a long time favorite for SouthEast travelers.
