Overview

About the property

5 BR / 4 BA mountaintop log lodge, one-of-a-kind and second to none

One-of-a-kind is one of the only appropriate phrases to use when attempting to convey the true beauty of this property through words, and even that phrase falls horribly short in describing the astounding aura surrounding this property. It has a renewing quality to each and every person it welcomes that cannot be attributed to many places on Earth. Perched high above an ocean-like valley, the view from the deck is simply awe-inspiring. If peace, privacy, and a place to renew yourself is that for which you are searching, you have found that and more. This is our American take on a French chateau and your opportunity to retreat from all things normal. It may sound like hyperbole, but trust us…it’s not.

As secluded as it gets, the lodge—which we anticipate you will enjoy calling your own—is situated on three and one-half acres of professionally manicured grounds flanked by forest. On your approach, you are greeted by a towering gate, constructed of the same British Columbia Cedar logs as the home for which it stands guard. Down the circular lane, as the spectacular lodge fills your view, is a Koi pond (absolutely NO fishing—only viewing them in their peaceful habitat, thank you!) as well as a dock and seating. Upon entering this palatial sanctuary through its double front doors, there is a uniquely calm feeling all around you. Each and every bit of the home is built from Canadian Cedar, and it exudes a sense of oneness, as if it naturally belongs right where it is, as now do you. In front of you in the cathedral-like living room is a wood-burning fireplace with a backdrop of windows exposing the valley below you, stretching what seems like endlessly into the distance.

In total, the lodge will comfortably accommodate 10 adult guests. There are five bedrooms, with two bedrooms on one wing, two on the opposing wing, and the master bedroom upstairs to afford maximum privacy to all guests. There is a ceiling fan and high-quality bed in every room. In the master bedroom, there is a private balcony with a small cafe table and two chairs. Also in the master bedroom, there are two additional single beds about the right size for children, should they be needed. There are four full bathrooms. The master bathroom has a walk-in shower and double vanity, while two of the remaining bathrooms incorporate claw-foot tubs with showerheads above. The basement bathroom is equipped with a traditional shower/tub. The kitchen is fully equipped and is separated from the living/dining room by a bar lined with three log barstools. There is a dining table by the fireplace with space for six, as well as a breakfast table for three between the kitchen and dining area.

In the living room, there is a flat-screen television with two plush leather sofas. As for the basement, leather couches are elevated for theater seating in front of a gargantuan plasma screen television equipped with digital cable, every channel offered by the local provider, and a DVD player. On the opposite side of the basement are a ping-pong table and foosball table. The basement is walkout, and the view outside these doors is just as spectacular as the one from the decks above. We do have a fire pit available for guest use, but there are no fires allowed outside the pit. There is central, zoned heating and air conditioning throughout the property as well as high-speed wireless Internet access and cellular service. A washer and dryer are available for your convenience. This property is ideal for family vacations, romantic getaways, or corporate retreats.

About Sharry

We are a family owned and operated company. This company was started by flipping houses that were in bad shape and helping families buy them who may not otherwise have been able to afford them or obtain financing. We later grew that into buying struggling small businesses, turning them around and allowing someone else to step in and live their dream. We then discovered the importance of families having safe, clean, affordable, and well maintained properties to stay in while they enjoy that very important family time....hence, our family expanded into the vacation rental business. We strive for 100% guest satisfaction and encourage our guests to let us know what we can do to make certain their time at a Sincerely Sharry properties exceeds their expectations. Please visit our other properties and join the many families who have made our properties their home away from home. The photo is of one of our family retreats at the cabin, sitting in the back, enjoying God's artwork.

Sharry purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Sharry chose Fall Creek Falls

We searched for about two years for just the right cabin. We wanted a lodge that felt like a real log cabin from the moment you drove onto the property; we found it in this one. We wanted a quality built log lodge in a private location yet close enough to activities and necessities; we found it in this one. We wanted a lodge that had breathtaking views and amazing sunsets; we found it in this one. We wanted a lodge that had well maintained grounds for kids to play on yet, the wooded area for beauty and the secluded cabin feel. We wanted a lodge that you didn't feel as if you were going to fall off a cliff to get to it; we found it in this one. We believe in the importance of 'family time' and we wanted a lodge that was large enough to be home away from home for an extended family; we found it in this one. Most of our guests are repeat guests, we believe this lodge is just the right one for that special getaway...long or short. We hope to see you soon.

What makes this lodge unique

This lodge is large enough for a family gathering but unique and romantic enough for a private getaway for two...it is truly one of a kind.

The view from the full length back deck is breathtaking, morning or evening.

The non-stop waterfall at the Koi pond is a favorite spot to relax and unwind as you watch the fish swim.

Little Piece Of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Can’t say enough about this place-the pictures really do not do it justice.

If you want Peace & Quiet and Breathtaking views this is for you. Love the

Koi pond the fish will follow you around it like a puppy-very relaxing to just

swing listening to the water fall and watching the fish-Heaven. House has

Everything you need the kitchen has EVERYTHING you need or want never

seen so much in a kitchen you don’t want for anything in there. The game room

is a great spot and very comfortable. It was so clean, a great plus.

The views from the deck are awesome it’s just hard to pick a spot, every view

back, side, front, can’t go wrong-good place for walking too.

Close to State Parks with beautiful waterfalls, area is beautiful country.

I can’t say enough about Sharry, she went over and beyond to help me and

let me bug her-answered all my questions emailed me back so fast-I feel

like I’ve known her a long time, she’s one in a million (no joke).

I've been going to the smokey mountains for years and I've never stay in a nicer place.

I really want to go back here again, and I think Fall would be spectacular.

Follow all the directions that are sent to you and you won't go wrong-easy

Sharry thank you again for everything !!!!

We look forward to you staying at any Sincerely Sharry property. Sharry & team

This place is majestic. This is our third time staying here. It is just place to relax and get away from it all. Nearest Walmart is 30 min away, not too bad. We played games and fed fish and watched tons of movies. If you want a low key vacation and a place to refresh your soul, this is the place! My favorite is that each room has a private door to the huge deck.

Remote Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is a perfect place to stay with family and friends, especially if you want to get away and unwind. Without getting into many different adjectives, the place is phenomenal. Once you walk through the front door, you receive an instant welcoming feeling. Each square inch of the property is unique and pretty much anything you need to make yourself feel at home is there for you. Each room of the lodge is nice and was comfortable to sleep at night. We spent a lot of time downstairs, it was nice to spend time with everyone in such a large room playing games and watching television! Each morning as you walk outside, the pond in front of the lodge is a wonderful treat to visit the koi. Whether, its day or night- the views are picturesque! During the day, the views of the valleys and mountains are unforgettable. Once the sun has set below the horizon- the sky opens up with numerous stars, planets and galaxies. I have never seen that many stars in my life! At the end of the stay, I didn't want to leave! I truly believe that is the ultimate test to see if any place is great. Lastly- if you have never stayed at a rental property before, don't worry! This entire process was simple and easy to book with Sharry. She is readily available to answer any questions in a timely manner. I highly recommend that you stay at any of her properties throughout the United States. I will be back in the future, hopefully sooner than later!

Great house!

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here and loved it! The views were amazing and the house was beautifully furnished. There were just a few drawbacks, but they wouldn't keep us from visiting again. The dining table is in the living area and during the day the sun shines very brightly through the large windows there. That made it difficult for us to visit or play games in that part of the house, and since my elderly parents weren't able to go up or down the stairs to another area it was a little frustrating. We had some difficulty with the toilets flushing properly, probably because it uses a well/septic tank. There was a maintenance man we could call or email and that was really nice. And lastly, the master bathroom was beautiful but the top of the dresser and the baseboards were pretty dusty. Not a deal breaker, they were likely just missed by the cleaning crew. Everything was clean. Overall this was a wonderful place to spend a few days to relax and spend time with family.

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed the cabin but are very sorry for the things that didn't meet your expectations. We are not exactly sure what happened to the toilets. The housekeepers did have to call a plumber after your stay because 3 of the 4 toilets were stopped up. We have never had to call a plumber before to unstop stools, so that was very strange. Other than having to dig a lot of paper products out, the plumber said they flushed fine but we do apologize for the inconvenience. I am very sorry the housekeepers missed dusting anything. Our standards for cleanliness are high and we will make certain they cover every inch in the future. As for all of the glass in the living/dining room, I'm not sure what we can do about that. All of the glass opens to the breathtaking view which is part of the beauty in staying at the lodge. We have looked at options for covering the wall of glass during the summer but as it is with our direct oceanfront units, so many come for the views we provide in our properties. However, it is our goal to make certain each guest is 100% happy, thus we will continue our search for something to help with the sunlight in the summer but we have to be careful not to obstruct the view in any way. I hope we have addressed each of your concerns, to your satisfaction. Thank you again for staying with us. Sharry

A great stay at a great house.

  • 5 of 5

The house is fantastic, large enough for my extended family. The area is so quiet except for katydids and cicadas. I sat on the balcony at night and marveled at all of the stars. If solitude is what one seeks, this is the place. We cooked all of our meals in the well stocked kitchen and the kids had a good time with ping pong, foosball and pool. Directions were precise but our GPS's worked well, too. Thanks to Sharry for making such a great property available.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing these thoughtful observations. It brings us great joy to see that our guests notice the little things that we, too, love about this unique bastion of tranquility. For the astronomer in you, as this guest noted, the stars are in view more clearly and marvelously here than can be said for more populated areas. We are so happy that the kids also enjoyed their stay; we find that most do! Thank you again for trusting us with your vacation. - Tyler for Sincerely Sharry Properties
