This was our first experience with renting a home/cabin for our vacation. If any future rentals anywhere compare to this one I will feel very, very fortunate. The whole process went smoothly from start to finish. We booked a year ahead, took advantage of the payment plan and was very pleased with the results.
Red Top is a home and a half! So comfortable. It's very large, yet very cozy. Mornings were the greatest, enjoying coffee on the deck waiting for sunrise. We even had the chance to enjoy a couple nighttime thunderstorms during our stay, which was something that we had hoped for.
We were welcomed by "Susie", a neighboring dog who was very friendly and easily adoptable. lol She came down the mountain every day to accompany anybody who happened to want a walking partner.
The area in general is very picturesque. If you feel the need to travel around there are many sights to see within an hour drive or less. We rented a pontoon boat for an afternoon and spent some time on the lake just soaking in the beauty of it all. Some of our group traveled to Bristol to take in some NASCAR events. Which was another great experience in itself! We were treated very nicely by everyone we encountered during our stay. The locals were all helpful in answering questions or just making conversation.
Despite an accident requiring a trip to the ER, our week spent at Red Top Retreat will be very memorable and cherished as a great time spent with family members. A great place for us as siblings to step back in time and become reacquainted.
One of the best vacations we've ever had. Thank you Melody for sharing with us!
