FARMER'S FAMILY HOME AT EDGE OF THE FOREST

Coker Creek Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Your private recreation area is cradled between two heavily wooded hills. Experience life on a small farm in the opulence of the Appalachian Mountains, at the edge of the Cherokee National Forest. Cook family feasts in the country kitchen, where many a peck of peas have been canned or over your bonfire or barbecue pit.

Breakfast on the deck and rock the evenings away on the most comfortable porch rockers ever invented. Catch and release big bass in your own stocked fish pond.

Fall asleep on the queen-sized bed with pillow top mattress to the sounds of the forest and the stream outside the master bedroom window. Awake watching the wooded hillside begin to become light. The custom decor in this bedroom and connected master bath reflect the forest hues.

Another bedroom is custom painted with a magic glow and decorated with mountain whimsy. The full sized futon is covered in plush pillow top for full sized bed comfort. A full bathroom is across the hall.

The third bedroom has two comfortable twin beds with lovely Laura Ashley print comforters and accenting artwork.

All bedrooms are well-lit with overhead lights and bedside lamps for reading your own favorite books, the owner/author's book, books by other local authors, or travel brochures about the many near-by amenities. Ceiling fans and central a/c and heat are available, although hardly ever required.

Horse lovers have four stalls to protect their ponies. Your pastures are very close to the riding trails of the Cherokee National Forest. Electric service allows for several RVs to be used simultaneously.

Your 8 1/2 acres are paradise for puppies and other pets. Nice neighbors are within shouting distance. Pets allowed; we do ask that you kennel them when you aren't supervising them. Kennels, root cellar and stables provided for pets safety and comfort.

Wild Cajun Woman, Yvette, is a writer Author of Our Tennessee mountain Home I & II) and publisher and also a gourmet cook and caterer. Richard grew up on a chicken breeding farm in Massachusetts and loves tinkering and woodworking. He is also quite the cook, especially when it comes to decadent desserts.

We love gardening with friends, collecting wild nuts and berries for cooking and canning collecting fresh eggs from neighbors with yard hens, watching area artists at work, gold panning in Coker Creek (only 1 mile away), swimming at Indian Boundary Beach, day trips to whitewater rafting on the Ocoee, Chattanooga Riverfront venues, fresh vegetables at the near-by Mennonite market, Bluegrass music at local pickin' sessions, and learning the local lifestyle of the farm folks. Waterfalls throughout the area are some our favorite places to take a dip and fabulous photographs.

Tubing on the Tellico River is an awesome way to unwind. Our favorite places for lunch, when we're not picnicking, are Tellico Kats for perfect paninis and Tellico Beach Drive-In for fifties family style food while playing in the rushing river. Pastries from Tellico Grains Bakery are a must for all our breakfasts with guests and we love the funky, down-home atmosphere and food at Town Square Bakery and Cafe.

Tellico Library and The Bookshelf fill our needs for reading and reference materials, as well selling as Yvette's book. The Heritage Gift Shop is a must-see souvenir place, and most of our family and friends wouldn't leave without Bill of Bill's Pit Stop taking them gold-panning, a dozen yard eggs from Mamie's hens, and one of the books autographed written by local author Jack Darnell and published by Yvette.

Yvette purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Writer and publisher, Yvette, needed a place to renew herself after her husband's heart transplant and the couple's loss of their waterfront Louisiana home to Hurricane Katrina. We are quite charmed by the tranquil lifestyle offered at our Tennessee Mountain Home, so much so that Yvette wrote a books 'Our Tennessee Mountain Home' I and II about the life, our family visits and friends at this edge of the forest.

It has provided the home base for making many new memories with children grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends and family galore.

This is a perfect hub for vacationing in the mountains of Tennessee. The many adventures offered in the area bordering on your property draw many to our door.

We have always been thrilled to hear about the swims guests took at Indian Boundary Lake, the gold they found in nearby creeks, the wildlife and other sights they saw rocking on the porch and hiking on nearby trails, the Appalachian arts they discovered in local shops and museums, and the local whitewater rafting and kayaking they were able to enjoy.

You are less than 2 hours from Greater Atlanta's bright lights and big city, Chattanooga's riverfront charms, and Knoxville's nice neighborhoods. There are first class medical facilities in all three areas.

Gatlinburg and Dollywood are also only 2 hours away. Your Tennessee Mountain Home is 2 miles from the North Carolina state line and 30 miles from the North Georgia mountains.

Four wheel drive is not required to get to your mountain retreat, even if there is mud or ice. Half the property is up high and half is in the holler. Plenty of place for RVs, trailers, soccer matches, baseball, badminton, boccie ball, fishing, etc.

The house was a nice size and welcoming. There was plenty of seating and room for cooking. The outdoor area was well taken care of and peaceful. There are items that need to be attended to.
There was mold on the shower curtain and mat in the tub (master)
The bath rugs were dirty (master)
The shower head in the other bath doesn’t work well and makes a loud pitched noise
There were no batteries in the smoke detector – it was laying on the bottom shelf of the bedside table in the master
The oven doesn’t cook evenly
The central ac/heat unit was making a terrible and loud noise. We asked the caretaker about it and she said it would be fine. We didn’t have any issues with it heating.
The potholders were very dirty.
The twin bed mattress are not good mattress for adults.
The dresser and chest of drawers and linen closet (master) needs something put in the drawers so they don’t smell (and make the guests clothes smell)
If there could be a better way for your guests to find the road to your property. My sister and her husband came during daylight and passed the road, we came after dark and had a hard time finding it – luckily my brother-in-law was at the end of your road to meet us.

Paradise found

This place is awesome. With 2 small creeks and a fishing pond, as well as a huge yard with a hammock, there is no shortage of outside stuff to occupy your time. Our 2 dogs really liked the freedom of all that space. Add the fact that it's only about a 10 minute drive to the Cherohala Skyway Drive and numerous hikes, it's a must stay for the traveller seeking adventure. The house itself was clean and well equipped. It has a fireplace inside as well as a firepit outside, which we used to keep the chill off while enjoying the star-lit night sky. While it may seem to be far from everything, it's not. The Hideaway Restaurant, less than a mile away, served a great dinner and allowed us to bring our own bottle of wine. There is a grocery store and several more restaurants in near-by Telico Plains, 10 minutes away. We love that area of the country and plan to return to spend even more time there.

The perfect escape!

After pulling up our family's roots in New York and heading out with no idea where "home" would be, we spent many weeks holing up with family, cheap hotels, or pricey vacation homes--none of which offered the serene atmosphere necessary to ground our minds/spirits on this crazy adventure.
Then--we unearthed this 8 1/2 acre secluded gem! Between the bounty of nature that completely surrounded us and our ability to hide away from everyone, the Coker Creek home was exactly what we needed. The property owner, Yvette, is truly one in a million. Nobody could ever ask for a more gracious host; she was more than willing to introduce us to the locals as well as chauffeur us around for all the great sites! The home itself is more than sufficient as well as being comfortable both in its decor as well as the accommodations. Many hours were spent on the front porch listening to the katydids serenade through the night, out in the game room playing foosball, and with the kids on the swing and in the creeks.
So pleased to have found this cabin, and that we were able to stay in it for almost two months. It allowed us to de-stress, unwind, and find our way while we were without a place to call home.

We stayed in this cabin for almost two months this past spring. The living areas were very comfortable, and the breakfast area was a nice spot for my photography and watercolor painting. I attempted some recipes from the collection of magazines and we spent a lot of time reading.

We brought our two dogs along and they mostly enjoyed walking around the property and jumping over the creeks. The swing bench was nice to sit on at night and watch the sunsets, and one afternoon we set up a picnic by the lake.

Hope to visit again one day.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for infusing our home with your artistic energy. Please let us know when you'd like to again be our guest.

Also, let me know if you'd like to receive a copy of one of the books I've written about our time living in the home. I will need you mailing address and which book you'd like.
