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.
Rachel 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.
Beautiful home and grounds in a serene setting. The mild mountain temperatures in mid-August were quite comfortable for outdoor activities, and a welcome relief. Plenty of privacy on the manicured property, and lots of nature to explore. We were in TN for the week to tend to family business in Sweetwater. Although Coker Creek is a bit of a drive, it was well worth it to be able to kick back in the evening andy decompress in a little slice of nature's paradise. Especially enjoyed the large porch and the firepit!
Housekeeper was very friendly and helpful. Home was clean and as described - no surprises. No cell service, but the WIFI worked great! There was a nice desk in the kitchen area that we took full advantage of.
Beautiful area. We love the little "hollow " the house is in. Our dogs had a blast running in the field and playing in the creeks. House was nice with a deck all around it.
The stay we had was way to short in our eyes. We enjoyed the house , the surroundings were amazing. The property was well maintained and clean. The property manager was very friendly and even brought us a lantern during the storm in case of a power outage. I would love to say I would not recommend this place to anyone just to be selfish so myself and my family could have it for our own. But honestly it is well worth it and very enjoyable. As we were their for the 4th of July we did hear a lot of unexpected booms that made us all jump. We enjoyed the Mountain view restaurant just a 1/2 a mile from the home and my grand daughter enjoyed the creeks and the game room. I can say we will be booking again unless you would let us just stay forever and we will definitely take care of the place for you.
We really enjoyed our stay at this wonderful mountain home. It had everything needed to make for a fantastic vacation. The scenery around the home was just to die for and the home itself was so comfortable and spacious. There were lots of interesting places to eat and see within a day's drive. We found it so relaxing while visiting with Eyvette and seeing her friends. We highly recommend this mountain home and property to families small and large. Loved it! - Doug, Jimmie, and Edith
We really enjoyed the house and the area. We are already making plans to return. The kids loved everything there. I would, strongly, recommend the place for anyone going near the Tennessee Smokey Mountain area.
Nice location, outdoor fire pit and creek were the kids favorite places. Main areas were "clean" but found many axillary areas were neglected, cleaning should have been more thorough. Example: main entry was swept, but behind the end table right next to the entry was not, cob webs were hanging over the pot and pans storage racks, etc.
Owner was responsive at first then no contact. No one showed up to meet us an go over anything, also no one showed up to check us out and review the site.
I can not, in good conscience, recommend this listing.
