7 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Farmhouse with Gorgeous Mountain Views
About Darlene Bigham
Jared is a town local. He grew up on the property, roaming the mountains and valleys. His mother was a nurse, and his father was the high school principal. Jared went on to become a local teacher and then a principal himself. He met his wife, Jessica, who was a middle school teacher. They have 5 children together, and they are busy raising them at the moment. Jared's parents are the property managers, and they are glad they can share the beauty and relaxation of The Holler with other families and future friends.
Darlene Bigham purchased this House in 2005
Why Darlene Bigham chose Turtletown
The quiet serenity of the surrounding mountains makes decompressing impossible to avoid. The Holler takes visitors into a different, slower way of life, where sitting on the porch swing mesmerizes visitors and restores the mind and soul.
What makes this House unique
The view of the fields, ponds, mountains, and rolling creek make the porches a magical place to hang out and rock or swing the morning or afternoon away. One of the favorite things for visitors is sipping coffee in the early hours of the day and watching the fog roll through the Holler and across the mountains of the Cherokee National Forest. It can be a mystical experience at times.

Beautiful large home on gorgeous property.
Our family loved staying here for a quick white water rafting getaway. Tons of room and a great "home" feeling. The house is on a beautiful piece of land as well. We would love to come back for sure!
Family gathering at The Holler house
Everything was as we expected. There were no complaints from any family members.
Great House and Property
This was perfect for our company retreat, the owners were very accommodating and easy to work with. We are looking forward to next year!
Great Property!!!! Beautiful, Quiet Atmosphere
Staying on this property was a pleasure!!! Great location, well stocked nice location. The owners are very nice people, with a rich history/ knowledge of the area. My only neutral comment is they need a bigger grill for servicing 20 people.
Amazing property and very friendly property managers!
My family and our extended families (Ranging from 3-46 yrs old) had such a great experience during our time celebrating New Years at the Holler Retreat. The younger kids loved playing in the yard and exploring the Tree House! The Older kids loved the basketball, outdoor games and downstairs game room area! The amount of beds/rooms were perfect for our size family!
David and Darlene were so nice - they met us at arrival and provided a walk thru of the house/amenities, they were very prompt when we needed a refill for the propane gas for the outdoor fire pit (highlight for hanging out at night in the screen porch). The house met our needs completely and are excited to return in the future...
Thank you for an enjoyable stay!!
The house was very clean and yard exceptional with plenty of room for a family of 20. Everyone had something to do and having the spacious yard was great to get out and enjoy the nice weather. The owners were awesome and was wonderful to assist with anything we needed. They wanted us to enjoy our stay as much as we did. It is a pretty secluded and quiet area. Great place for large parties, rafting and seeing foliage.
Our farmhouse is located near several whitewater rafting companies who will take you and your crew down the Level 4 and 5 rapids of the Ocoee River. This is the same river that was rafted in the 1996 Olympics.
The Ocoee Whitewater Center, which is 10 minutes from our home, offers over 40 miles of mountain bike and hiking trails, as well as picnic and grilling areas.
Enjoy quaint downtown Copperhill and the antique shops and unique store fronts it offers. There are plenty of craft beer shops, a variety of restaurants, and other establishments for grabbing ice cream or souvenirs. Check out Talent Pharmacy for super cute t-shirts and southern fashion items.
Harrah's Casino is located in Murphy, NC, which is a 30-minute drive from here. Check out what the casino has to offer, if you wish.
Don't forget Blue Ridge, GA! There are incredible shops and restaurants in this town, which is about 20 minutes from our home. Mercier Orchards is a popular tourist attraction. Visitors can tour the orchards, buy their famous fried apple pies, and purchase a lot of cool apple-related items from their storefront.
