Great, Remote Mountain Vacation
Hemlock Grove is an amazing property and Lee is an awesome property owner.
This is the perfect place for families with children who want to get away from it all. We had a great time hiking the private trails, fishing in the pond, and playing in the small stream right behind the house.
Just remember this is as remote as you will find in Tennessee so be prepared, flexible, and adaptable. We had a small issue while there; Lee was very responsive and attentive.
A great place that we hope to visit again.
Thanks for our FIFTIETH 5 star rating in a row!!! Your family was a dream to host and we appreciate all your kind words. Some guests really take advantage of the trails and on-property hiking so we are always happy when that happens! We are implementing your helpful suggestions. Thanks for leaving the Cottage in such great shape! You and yours are welcome back any time! - Lee
Our New Years trip
Our experience was great and exactly what we hoped for. The communication prior to our trip and throughout was fast and helpful. Lee helped us with a spot to store our trucks and trailers since we towed our Jeeps to the area. The house was beautiful and well stocked and prepared for our stay. Tons of helpful maps and information left in the book for the surrounding area. You are definitely off the grid but if that is your plan like it was ours, you will love this house and hospitality that comes with it. I happily recommend this place for those looking to get away and enjoy a quiet mountain stay.
Our family loves getting away to the country & mountains, so the remoteness of this property was perfect! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving together & had all the room we needed. By far, the best stocked kitchen of any place we've been over the years. Beds were super comfy. We did miss watching football on Thanksgiving day, but we got outside after eating & played our own football. The property around the house is beautiful so we took lots of hikes together. We will definitely rent again!
Awesome location! Beautiful scenery!
Our stay at this property was very nice. We had 9 adults and 7 children in our group. We did purchase the bunkhouse to have additional space. The teenagers loved hanging out in the bunkhouse! The house offered great space & amenities. We felt very at home. The owners came out the next day to greet us and give us info and tips about the area. We were close to many hiking trails & fishing areas. The closest store is a 40 min drive so it would be wise to stop on the way in and get as much as you need for your stay. I honestly feel like the pictures on the site don’t do the house justice! It is just so beautiful & to me it looks so much better in person! We really enjoyed spending time together at this property and would stay here again!
Hanna, Thank you so much for the great review! I know with 9 adults and 7 children it was quite an effort to leave the cottage and bunkhouse in such nice condition! We are very pleased you liked everything and got out to explore the Great Smoky Mountains and Cherokee National Forest and the Citico Creek Wilderness! Thanks for being such conscientious guests and for looking after the place so well! Come back anytime! Andcheck out our other listing 100270 for 3 bedrooms and smaller groups.
Quiet secluded cottage
Our stay at the cottage was very nice. Lee had everything ready and waiting for us to start our vacation. The cottage and bunkhouse were both well supplied with kitchen items etc. The property is beautiful. We were here for a family members birthday which included a trip to Noah’s Ark Replica. Defiantly get your food supplies for the first couple days as it is a 40 minute ride on a twisty road to the nearest stores. Overall we had a great family trip. The cottage and bunkhouse were very comfortable for our large family.
Thank you for the very lovely review Amy! We know it takes some effort to post a review after your stay but it really helps others know what they are in for when they rent the Cottage sight unseen! We greatly appreciate that you left the cottage in clean condition and that you gave us a head-start on the laundry! 14 Beds plus towels is a LOT!! You were super guests and I am sorry we didn't get to meet you although I think we passed you on the road. Please come back in another season to enjoy the Fall colors. Also don't forget we have a smaller 3 bedroom nearby that is VRBO listing 100272 if you want to return with a smaller group. Thanks again! Please come back any time! - Lee
