Peace and serenity

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our family while enjoyig a weekend of Whitewater Rafting, and train tours of the area. It was a beautiful place inside and out! We totally enjoyed the fire pit at night as we cooked samores and roasted marshmallows. Laughing and singing and just catching up with our family! We all felt such a sense of peace here! We plan to return, thank you for sharing this beautiful place!

Joyful Experience

  • 5 of 5

This house was more beautiful than advertised and the pictures; though nice, did not do this house justice. There was more room than I had expected and the furnishings devine. Looks like the owners had thought of everything (cards, board games, flashlights, spices) and we had all the comforts of home. Spent every sunrise and sunset on the observation deck and just about every night at the fire pit roasting marshmellows over a bonfire. Think it would be lot's of fun to have a crowd to fill the house up with. The noises at night left me a little jittery but with a crowd of friends and family....all you would be able to hear would be joy and laughter...peace and relaxation. Great place. I recommend it highly.

Beautiful mountain home

  • 5 of 5

This was, without a doubt, the nicest VRBO home we have utilized and we have stayed in many. The home itself is beautifully decorated, immaculate and has everything a guest could possibly need. The outside is beautifully landscaped and the yard includes a hammock, an outdoor grill and a fire pit as well as a lovely deck with a magnificent view. The setting is isolated and absolutely gorgeous. We hope to visit this beautiful property again.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home inside and out with an absolutely wonderful view of the Smokies. Not far away from all the things you will want to see and do, but upon returning "home", you may not want to leave the great front porch/view. Be sure to buy some local firewood for the fire pit. It's a great place to enjoy fresh air, stars and friends and family.
