Stay “inside the box", at our unique 20' shipping container. This studio space boasts gorgeous sweeping views of the Tuckasegee river. You may not want to leave the sounds and views of the river, even with charming downtown Bryson City less than one mile away and the entrance to the Great Smokies National Park with its walking trails and waterfalls only minutes away!

The space
Set on a beautiful river view property, our Shipping Container Studio home is the perfect location for your Bryson City getaway. Watch the river go by from the comfortable chairs on the covered porch or fire pit area. The Great Smoky Mountains train, a scenic passenger train ride, also passes by a couple of times per day!

Step inside the Ship Shak to discover a well appointed space, while small, has all the touches you expect: a comfy queen bed, kitchenette, flat screen internet TV, and a spacious bathroom with a shower.

Dogs are allowed for a fee. Please review "house rules" for details.

Where you’ll be

Bryson City, North Carolina, United States

Ship Shak is located in the town of Bryson City but feels more remote and removed from town life. You have access to the National Park in minutes and still less than a mile to the heart of downtown. It's really the best of both worlds!
