About Mary Kraft
Settlers Mountain was created to share the wonderful Great Smoky Mountains with friends and family. What started as a personal retreat turned into a family enterprise. Bert and Mildred Kraft loved the mountains and its local people so they settled in Bryson City and built Settlers Mountain (circa 1959). Bert, being a very industrious person with the love of architecture, built the homes on the mountain and refurbished a hand-hewn chestnut log cabin built in the 1840's, one of only five left in the area. Settlers Mountain is owned and operated by the Kraft Family and is enjoyed by five generations of Kraft’s. We welcome you to make Settlers Mountain your retreat and create a lifetime of memories.
Mary Kraft purchased this House in 1976
Why Mary Kraft chose Bryson City
This property has 200 acres and yet near to town on paved roads. Very well maintained grounds that is wooded and quiet, close to all the action the area has to offer. Our caretakers live on the mountain so any problems that may arise are taken care of. You are walking distance between 7 homes yet each home is positioned on the mountain on different layers providing privacy for each home. You could have multiple families stay at once on our mountain or have for family reunions.
What makes this House unique
Beautiful natural rock work from our mountain adorns this home making it warm and cosy. The great room with its large rock fireplace and chimney is in sight of kitchen and dining so everyone can participate in the family activities. The private upstairs master suite can be a place to get away to from it all with its own private balcony overlooking a gorgeous view. Kids are free to visit the game room and play foosball or pick out some classic movies or games. You will be so close to attractions whether rafting or going on the great smoky mountain railroad that after a long day you will look forward to returning to you new home away from home.
