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.

About Yvette

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

Why Yvette chose Coker Creek

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.

What makes this farmhouse unique

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.

a wonderful escape from the city life

  • 5 of 5

My family and I needed a break from our day to day running in the city.. we enjoyed our time ,all tho it far to short, at your home. we would like to thank you for sharing it with us.. we found this rental to be very clean and neat as well as comfortable. my girls had fun playing games and puzzles and walking around the creek . they really loved it when hubby started the fire out front so they could make the property manager had plenty of wood and sticks in the fire pit so hubby just had to light it up.. took all the gathering of wood work out of it.. which we so appreciated. my husband enjoyed his much earned relax. I walked around the many acres looking for wildlife... but only found two turtle we had such a peaceful time i can see us wanting to visit again over the summer... :-)

Very Relaxing - Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time. Thank you so much for letting us use your piece of heaven. We followed a lot of back roads to some beautiful waterfalls. It was a great location for day trips to Knoxville and Atlanta. My daughter enjoyed her gold panning lesson from Bill. He was a super nice guy and a wealth of knowledge. We have already recommended to family and will definitely consider a future visit.

Amazing Beginning of Spring Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time visiting this amazing home. The house is located with driving distance of many day time activities. The drive on the skyway was amazing. The trip to the falls and even the day trips to Gatlinburg and Cades Cove made our stay amazing. The property is awesome. Loved waking up in the mornings grabbing my coffee and sitting on the front porch. We had a family of ducks that visited the small pond daily, along with a pair of cardinals. My husband and I plan on returning again hopefully in the fall or next year. Thanks Yvette for sharing us with this amazing home of yours.

What the amazing!?!?

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful. Secluded and wonderfully quiet. My husband loved it & the dogs didn't want to leave!!! It was clean and obviously taken care of. Yes the master bedroom bed squeaks but it's a fair trade for how COMFORTABLE the mattress was!!! We aren't "nap people" but insisted on one just as an excuse to fall asleep on the cloud! Thank you for opening this home for us to enjoy!

An Exceptional Mountian Home

  • 5 of 5

This is perhaps one of the most gorgeous mountain properties we have ever visited. Lost in time, living off the Grid!! It's not easy to be away from the necessity of a cell phone, but one we learned to enjoy. Although we were tempted to access the Internet a few times. What I absolutely adore about this place is The Story!! I didn't have to wish that the walls could talk because the owner provided a copy of her book about life in this Holler. If you desire glamorous accommodations, this is not your place. But living in a Holler, well off the beaten path is not glamorous. The accomadations were adequate for a family with children. The kitchen was over the top for accommodating a small crowd. It is a "Cook's" kitchen. Everything described in the property description was "Spot On"! No disappointments for this couple. We hope to return one day with more of our family for a once in a lifetime experience. This Mountian Home provided an exceptional Anniversary Get-A-Way for us!!

Great place for dogs, lovely property

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful place to spend a quiet weekend. The property is beautiful and very spacious - great for large dogs to run around. There is even a run in the front yard. Easy to find, but secluded. No cell service for miles, which is a little hard to get used to, but makes for a nice way to disconnect from the world. Wifi worked but required periodically resetting the router. Not sure that the "stocked fish pond" has any fish in it, as it's very small and shallow, but perhaps we just didn't have any luck. Be aware that the grill is charcoal, and you'll be too far out from civilization to just run to the store, so plan ahead! Also, the listing states that kennels are available for pets, but we were glad to have brought our own crate as there were a few that were far too small for our medium-large dog, and one large one that was very dirty. My only real complaint is that it was unclear how we were going to get access to the property as no one ever contacted us with that information. We ended up contacting the property manager directly, who said that she wasn't even aware that the cabin had been booked (uh-oh) but that everything was ready, and in the end we had no problem checking in or checking out. It just would have been nice if the details were more clear from the outset.

All in all, a lovely and peaceful stay. Really a great place for large city-living dogs to stretch their legs and explore, or just lounge about in the sun while mom and dad lounge in the hammock.

Owner's Response: Dear Daniela, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your experience at Our Tennessee Mountain Home. I am so happy it worked out for your family. I am so sorry about the confusion regarding your arrival. I was traveling when you made your reservations and dropped the ball on communication, partly because I was in and out of internet access range. I would like to send you a copy of one of the books I wrote about our lives in the home. I hope it will help you relive the memories you made while there. If you would like the book, please provide me with your physical address. Thank you again. I hope to hear from you soon. Yvette
