My family just returned from an amazing week here and really enjoyed our stay at Greg & Gina's home. We had a total of 6 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs and we very comfortable in this house.
The house is beautifully decorated; rustic with lots of interesting antiques. Gina's artwork added a personal touch to the space. I absolutely fell in love with the master bathroom, the dark wood on the ceiling and the beautiful chandelier are beautiful. The beds/pillows were so comfortable that even though I brought my own pillow, I chose to sleep on the ones that were already there.
Greg & Gina were very helpful...they provided recommendations of places to visit and were available by phone or text for any questions that came up during our stay.
We spent every morning enjoying our coffee on the back deck watching the sunrise and the clouds lift over Shinbone Valley. In the evenings, we ate dinner on the back deck and enjoyed a few drinks around the fire pit.
Our days were spent exploring the beautiful nature of this area - Little River Canyon, swimming holes at Eberhart point and at the mouth of the Canyon, and Cherokee Rock Village were some of our favorites. We also went to Desoto Falls and drove to Chattanooga, TN one day and visited Rock City...but after the natural settings we enjoyed earlier in the week -- Rock City seemed like a fake "Disneyland-ish" attraction. We all agreed that it didn't compare to the trails and swimming holes of Little River Canyon.
Previous reviewers mentioned the dirt/gravel road leading up to the house -- but we didn't find it difficult to navigate. 2 in our party drove SUVs, but my parents even drove their Lexus sedan up the road without any problems. One day we encountered 3 wild turkeys crossing the road as we drove back to the house.
We look forward to visiting this area again in the future and wouldn't hesitate to stay in this beautiful home when we return!
