Over the past 7 years, I have spent part of every Spring in the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains. This year, the Choestoe Sanctuary stay during the month of May, was the highlight of the entire vacation.
The online description definitely did NOT do it justice. The "cabin" itself, is lovely two-story home which boasts decks on ALL sides of the structure. It's cozy decor and up-to-date technology provides all the comforts of home in a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. Choestoe Sanctuary is conveniently located to lakes, rivers, parks and historic sites, as well as tourist favorites, shopping and entertainment. Gorgeous views of the countryside are a bonus and are provided 24-7 at no charge!
Carl and Esther own this beautiful vacation home and keep it as if they lived there. They are constantly updating and upgrading the home, so you'll find all the amenities and conveniences you might have added yourself if you owned the place. They are only a phone call away if you have any questions or needs, and are extremely prompt in responding.
To sum it all up, this is one of THE nicest vacation spots I've ever experienced and it's run by two of the nicest folks you could ever meet.
