Retired engineer. Moved up to TN from Florida. Custom built house constructed to accommodate me, my wife and occasional grand kids.. Garden spot is used every year and some fresh veges are available to guests in season.

DeVere M Foxworth purchased this chalet in 1997

On 10 acre mountain top, quiet with almost no traffic, but close enough to get on main highways and to small towns without extensive mountain driving.We enjoy all seasons from water sports in the summer to hiking in the fall and winter; all within the most beautiful mountain scenery in Tennessee.

Very quiet, clean air and excellent views for fall colors ,and winter modest snows. Accessible on paved county or state roads .Garden spot ( vegies and flowers) on top of mountain (very unique). Away from the tourist traps but close enough for antique shopping, supermarkets, restaurants and hospital in Etawah . Thus reasonable prices,.excelent doctors in Knoxville at University of TN (2 hours away) and local hospital in Etawah (30 minutes away)...

Beautiful house and property. Gorgeous mountaintop views. Spacious accommodations for our large group. We will return!

We used this as a central location for several activities in the region.
Visit the Webb Store for fishing, rafting and local history - Reliance
Hiwassee Outfitters Fishing/rafting
Delano Day lilies and the Amish farmers market - Delano
Adventure America Zipline Canopy Tours Ducktown
L&N railroad Depot and Hiwassee River Rail Adventure trains - Etowah

The house provide enough room and comfort to satisfy everyone's needs from age 3-70. The well stocked kitchen provided everything needed to prepare our breakfast and dinners. The hot tub for 2 was relaxing. The kids enjoyed the loft while the adults enjoyed the comfortable bedrooms and 4 baths. The covered decks were heavenly during the rainstorms!

Use GPS (N 35.232834, W 84.431249) to get to correct location.
Using the street address will get you lost in beautiful Monroe County!! (But it is a beautiful 10 miles of steep mountain curvy dirt road!!)

Cell phone service is very spotty in the mountains. Verizon worked on the deck. ATT would not. BEWARE. Land line phone calls to anywhere beyond the next room are probably $$$ long distance!!

Thank you to the Foxworth's for their hospitality and great Customer Service. I am already looking forward to our next visit!!

Owner's Response: Our house is the only one in the area with any cell phone service at all(because of its elevation).. Also the land line is provided for emergencies and provides local (free ) service to the locations mentioned in the review. You must use the street address with zip code as a duplicate street name exists in Monroe County..

Great Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5
** I was needing a place to stay so that I could bring my mom to see two brothers she hadn't seen in a long time, one living near Chattanooga and the other Tellico Plains, TN. Found this cabin on HomeAway's VRBO site, it was kind of in between the two places and it fit our needs perfectly! It had plenty of room for me, my mom, my two teens and my sister and her two children. The hot tub was a favorite for the kids! We grilled hamburgers the first night out on the deck. The view was beautiful. Very private, very peaceful! WIFI and satellite t.v. Beds were very comfortable. My mom and I stayed on the main level and shared a bedroom, my sister and her husband and my teen son had the two bedrooms downstairs (we rented the whole house), and the three girls enjoyed the bedroom upstairs (3rd floor). Since we are all coffee drinkers, my sister enjoyed having her own little coffeepot downstairs in addition to the one in the main kitchen. The cabin itself was very clean and had just what you need except for your groceries. Plenty of room for family to spread out!
**The area is very nice, the Hiwassee River is just minutes away, plenty of sight-seeing opportunities and activities nearby! AND about 45 minutes to an hour away, is Bald River Falls, which we enjoyed very much (just outside of Tellico Plains).
** The owners are very nice, very helpful! Even called once while we were there to check and see if we needed anything.
** We will definitely stay here again!!!!!
One tip: if you have AT&T you won't get good reception, but your family can reach you on the landline, plus the WIFI gives you great access to the outside world- so don't let that stop you from staying!

What a great place!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW! Just finished another fantastic week in Reliance. And for the third straight year, this chalet has provided my group of twelve the perfect homebase for all the activities the area has to offer. This place is private(can't be seen from any roadway until halfway up the driveway). The views of the clouds (fog) creeping through the hills and trees in the mornings and the afternoon thunder storms are well enjoyed from the large covered porches. The large open kitchen served three meals a day to all 12 effortlessly. The multi story lay out provided sleeping arrangements with proper privacy for guest ages 5 -75. Even though the mountain top is secluded, it's only minutes from lots of activities. Float, tube or kayak the rivers, Fish- fly or reel,wade or boat,river or lake. Druve or bike the windy roads. Fly a glider.Meet the people and shop the local towns or the Amish. Ride the train. Or even hunt down dead people(Genealogy and local history). There are tons of things to do here! And this chalet is one of the best I have rented so far.

Quiet Thanksgiving Retreat

  • 4 of 5
This property was perfect for our needs as a meeting place for our family, which is scattered all over the Southeast. During the daylight hours, we found the cabin easily however finding the cabin after dark would be a challenge. The owners were there to welcome us and go over the entire house to make us aware of the aminities. They were very nice and inviting. We had a great time over the weekend with a house full - 10 people - and were very comfortable the entire time. The furniture is a little dated, and the TV is old. The internet connection was slow. All in all, we had a great time in a quiet, secluded cabin.

Owner's Response: The great room furniture is being replaced with new. All 3 televisions work well but the one in the great room will soon be replaced with a much larger screen. The WiFi is the only one (DISH) available in this mountain top location.

Thanksgiving in the mountains

  • 4 of 5
We gathered to celebrate Thanksgiving with our children from North Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee and we are from New Mexico. The reservation process was easy considering I have never done this before. The weather was snowy and cold so we weren't able to get out with 2 babies, but we stayed warm and cozy. The property was clean and well maintained. A little dated in the décor, but charming. The directions to the cabin are sketchy considering we arrived in the dark and we don't know the area. But we spent a fun weekend with family in a cozy cabin. The main floor had two bathrooms and the master bedroom. The other bedrooms were upstairs or downstairs. I would recommend this cabin to everyone.

Owner's Response: We are currently replacing almost all great room furniture with new pieces. Much of the bedroom furniture are valuable antiques.
We have suggested that our guest arrive in early afternoon due to the remote location explained on the web page.

Not Private at all! I wouldn't recommend it!

Not Private at all! I wouldn't recommend it!
  • 1 of 5
wouldn't recommend this cabin to anyone. We booked this cabin since we wanted a spacious cabin to fit our large family and because we wanted to stay somewhere private so we could celebrate the holidays with lots of joy and celebration so we thought this would be a good choice but boy were we wrong! It's in the middle of nowhere first of all, and you'd think that would make it private right? Wrong! The neighbors are super close! on Xmas day we were hearing music inside the cabin with the windows open and we got a call for the owner saying we had to turn off the music because the neighbors were complaining about music on Xmas day, talk about having distasteful neighbors. According to the rental agreement we had the right to listen to music until 10pm but we were robbed of that right from the beginning. One of the things that upset us the most was that the owner didn't decorate for Xmas or even put up a tree and he knew we were there to spend Xmas with our family & kids. We left the cabin in super clean conditions and all we got in return was an email from the owner saying thank you, but that he was upset because we did not leave the tv's programmed or plugged in like he left them, and that he didn't like how we did not follow his exact driving directions or advice on what to do while we stayed there, which I believe we have the right to chose whether we follow our own directions or someone else's. Also you have to drive almost 20 minutes to take the garbage out, yes I said drive 20 minutes! And the neighbors 2 dogs would be on the rental property most of the times and every single day we would have to pick up all the garbage that the dogs would scatter all over the property after getting into the garbage area, we even have pictures to prove this incase the owner wants to blame it on the "wildlife". The owner was also complaining about a calling card that he had left and must have been misplaced by our kids so he charged us $15 for the lost calling card even though we were decent enough to leave his cabin clean after being charged a cleaning fee, which he claimed no one had ever been so nice to do so before. Also all the appliances are super old and outdated, the dishwasher didn't even work. The entire time we stayed in this cabin we felt very uncomfortable because of all the rules, regulations, and the grinch of a neighbor who would call and complain about anything and everything. This was the first and last time we will ever stay here! Be warned!

1)These people did not follow directions, and neighbors
complained to me of disturbing the peace. We had to asked them to turn off outside( not inside) loud music.

2) They filled five 34 gallon garbage cans in about 3 days and would not take any of it to the dumpster. So animals (as they always do) got into it and spread the garbage over the deck. They left it loose and piled my outside chairs on top . I advised them on where( 10 minutes away) to take it and when. They did not thus the result of more animals spreading it further.

3) They gouged the sheet rock on stairs moving furniture from the first floor to the second which cost quite a bit to fix. They were not charged for this

4) We asked them to leave the beds unmade-they decided to wash everything without asking us, which is contrary to what we do i.e. bring to Knoxville and wash in larger machines

5) They arrived 1.5 hours early(before their time started) while we were still getting the house ready driving up in the front yard so we had to accept this early arrival.

6) They left the frig full of food and dirty inside and out. Also at least a quarter inch of grease in the oven

7) Soda cans were thrown all over the yard

6)They booked 8 people (see Inquiry) and brought at least 12

There are may more incidents which we do not have space to cover

Since we started renting this place 2 years ago we have had nothing but good reviews(see above) and comments by every single renter.
The house sits on 10 acres in a 5 acre (minimum) rural subdivision so there is no way the houses can be "super close". The appliances are working fine; however the dishwasher had the dry cycle turned off. We have used it several times in he past few days. Also they never notified us of any problems even though we provided a telephone card(which is now missing)for free long distance.

We never said we would decorate for Christmas ; although there were many wreaths hung at the entrance and on and inside the house which is much more than others do in this area..

We do not require a legal contract, We just ask our quest to observe 11 simple rules which they agreed to when they booked the property and they are posted on the wall in the cabin. However, if the guests disturb the peace they will be asked to stop.
