We would LOVE to return to this vacation home someday! We are a family of seven -- six adults and our four-year old granddaughter. We had plenty of space for all of us -- to sleep, play cards, eat, and just hang out and relax. The home was beautiful, very clean, and had everything we needed for our home away from home. We cooked in most meals and had all of the essential kitchen tools at our disposal. The beds were comfy and the hot tub was very relaxing. Water pressure was great and there was plenty of hot water. When there are three women in the house, that is essential! Ha. Johnny was very helpful and provided an abundance of information about the home and the surrounding area. Within three days of checkout, he had already refunded my damage deposit. That's awesome! Thanks, Johnny!
Other info: Since we had a small child with us, we didn't want to do a difficult hike, so we took the trail to Laurel Falls. It was gorgeous and she did quite well on the hike. We took the tram up the mountain and rode the alpine slide. Very fun for all of us and the view was lovely. We also spent one afternoon river tubing on the Little River. We used Smoky Mountain River Rat in Townsend and had a wonderful time, The water was COLD, but you get used to it after a while. Ha. The float is very relaxing. A few fun "rapids", but mostly just a nice, relaxing float down. We also enjoyed our visit to Sugarland Shine in Gatlinburg where the adults took part in the moonshine tasting. The tasting was a lot of fun and we did make a couple purchases while there. Sips Up! Gatlinburg was a fun town -- lots of things to see, do and taste. My husband doesn't really iike crowds, so we didn't spend a whole lot of time down there. While in the area, we also had family pictures taken. We used Rich Blessings Photography by Christine. We haven't seen all of the pictures yet, but the sneak peeks she provided are AWESOME. Christine was great to work with and, of course, the scenery is to die for, so I know the rest of the pictures will be great.
We had a great time in the Great Smoky Mountains and LOVED our beautiful vacation home. The pictures and description are accurate and it was clean and well-maintained. I have already recommended it to a co-worker. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us, Johnny! We hope to return again. Maybe we'll see a bear or two next time. :-)
