Seeking an off-the-beaten-path, tranquil, one of a kind spot with a view of the Smokey Mountains like NO other? Look no further.
First, this house’s location is phenomenal. A rugged vehicle is your best choice for traversing the mountians, but hey, that IS part of this place on earth and the perfect path to this exquisite retreat. You will experience “getting away from it all” from your first step onto this property.
This mountain retreat is much more than your typical listing but they have covered all your basic needs quite well. So, once you arrive, just kick off the shoes, sit, relax, and do nothing while enjoying the quiet splendor of the landscape -- both far and near -- from a plethora of comfortable perches -- both in and outside.
I was seeking a weekend getaway from a busy daily life, with my husband and our 6 children (ages 15 to 22). Our spring time retreat to this rental home was simply perfect. The house was spacious, the “playtime” offerings (movies, books, games, suggested hikes) were plentiful, and each room was nicely appointed with all the comforts of home (without all one’s personal clutter!). Outside we found a flat lawn to play on, large stones and cozy spaces inviting meditative thought, a fire ring, a pond full of tadpoles, and even a wood-fired hot tub -- something we had never seen before. After a little instruction reading (helpfully left in a folder for all visitors) we built a fire in the hot tub shoot and easily warmed the fresh mountain water (clean & cool when used without the heat option). What simple, elegant engineering... with a spectacular view! We could not have asked for more or imagine anything better.
More than once since our stay here, my husband and I have discussed renting this property again. The house comfortably fit our family of 8, but could have easily fit invited friends, too, .... or (as we hope to revisit it) it could be a magical place to spend just being together as a twosome.
We wish to kindly thank the owners of this Utopia for sharing their slice of heaven on earth.
