This was our first VRBO experience. WOW.... does not describe enough about "Shell Mountain."
It is a peaceful respite from the world...My husband said to only go there if you want to completely relax.
One of the most enjoyable treats was all the variety of birds, turkey and a resident box turtle. We did not see any bear.
I can not imagine finding a view of the Smokey's better than this even during the rain.
The Coats are excellent owners and checked on us by phone during our visit to see if we needed anything ..but of course we did not as their home is totally equipped. When we drove in and opened the front door we were absolutely thrilled. There is a gorgeous view from anywhere in the home.
From the view, to the rockers, to the grill, to the hot tub--the back porch/deck is fantastic.
Of course, there are many close by day trips. I did a short drive to the Laurel Falls hike plus a visit to the Arts and Craft community. So many attractions in the area.
We loved the twisting road up the mountain to the house.
Would definitely return .
