The new THEATER/FAMILY/GAME room has a 48” FLAT SCREEN TV and DVD, bamboo hardwood floors, Foosball table, glass walls looking into the fishing pond and the backyard creek, and all leather furniture.

Our new bathroom products are from Concept Amenities, an Australian soap company whose soaps are in 5-star European hotels. The bath gel, bar soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion are biodegradable and environmentally sensitive. We love our environment and know that you do too. This is why you vacation in the Smoky Mountains.
The backyard creek runs under the house into a large FISHING POND in the front yard, which has Goldfish, Catfish, and Brim. You can fish from the front deck in the stocked pond. Please bring your fishing poles. We request that you CATCH & RELEASE ONLY.
The pond fountain automatically turns on to enjoy your morning coffee and turns off in the evening. It off in the winter months. The CREEKSIDE HOT TUB is in the moss-covered backyard and under a COVERED TRELLIS in case of rain. The Hot Tub is emptied and refilled prior to each guest arrival in accordance with the Tennessee Department of Health Regulations. This is the most peaceful vacation home you will ever visit. It is tucked amongst the trees and early in the morning, WILD TURKEYS come to drink at the edge of the pond and the occasional bear drifts by to take a bath with her cubs.
There are new bamboo floors, slate counter tops, appliances, area carpets, washer-dryer, and amazing landscaping in the front yard with a dry creek bed in stone, large boulders, and a RESIDENT TURTLE. The RACCOONS love Oreo cookies. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILIES. KIDS LOVE IT!!!
