A Smokey Mountain chalet on two hundred acres of private property with a million dollar view from 3,500 feet above sea level. Overlooking clouds, pastures, streams, waterfalls, ponds and forest; wake up to crisp clean mountain air filled with the sounds of nature. At night, gaze at a sky full of stars that city dwellers never see. Mother Nature at her finest awaits you here. Adjacent to Nantahala National Forest the property has over ten miles of it's own trails for hikes, mountain bikes, horses or ATVs.
The chalet includes: a loft with a king size bed and private bathroom, one bedroom with two twin beds and a pull-out couch that sleeps two; a fully equipped kitchen; a great porch; a picnic area in the forest with it's own BBQ, stream, footbridge and troll (pan for rubies and garnets at your own risk); a television with VCR & DVD player (bring your own movies because neither TV or cell phones receive signals here).

We drove up from FL with our ATV and had a fantastic time. We rode all the trails on the farm and many off the farm. :) The chalet was very comfortable and the fireplace was a nice treat as it did get cold while we were there. The fall foliage was pure eye candy. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the farm. Wish we had more time to explore the area and do more hiking. So much to see and do...
