About the property

Serene rural location with 2 car garage, deck & views. Perfect to Relax.

Come back to your relaxing country retreat after a day filled with outdoor activities! 'Lakewood' is a perfect Lake and Mountain Getaway! The private, 1 acre country setting overlooking the valley of the northern tip of Tellico Lake in the Cherokee National Forest is remote enough for peace and serenity but only one mile from the boat ramps at Tellico and Chilhowee Lake. Lakewood isn't fancy but it is clean and comfortable! Read what others have said about us!

If you love scenic drives you will love the 100% paved road access and the central location to Hwy 360, 129 ('Tail of the Dragon') and the Cherohala Skyway in Tellico Plains. Both are considered world class scenic byways especially for motorcyclists!

Use the Garage to store all your gear at night!

Situated near the Chillhowee Dam, there are two bedrooms with queen sized beds. The youth room has a twin sized trundle bed that sleeps two and a bunk with a twin bed on top and a double sized futon sleeper on the bottom. Lakewood sleeps six adults or four adults and four kids very comfortably. There is also a large livingroom with two couches and a huge country kitchen! Perfect for Family/Friends Reunions. Half way between FLA and Mid-West! SEE MORE DETAILS AND PICTURES BY CLICKING ON THE LINK BELOW TO OUR WEBSITE!

Just 7 miles further up Mount Pleasant Road in a quiet, remote mountain hollow is, '5 bedroom - The Cottage at Hemlock Grove.' (VRBO listing 44444) For families or groups looking for a mountain hide-a-way, this is it! Located on 300 acres deep within the Cherokee National Forest. This larger cottage offers access to hiking, trout fishing or wonderful day trips to the Citico Creek Wilderness Area, Cherohala Skyway, Fort Loudon State Park, Sequoia Museum, Tellico Plains or even Pigeon Forge.

About Lee

We live in Atlanta but have two vacation rentals in Monroe County Tennessee catering to adventurous folks, like us, are looking for seclusion and solitude in the Cherokee National Forest and the cool mountain air. hemlockgrovedotcom.

Lee purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Lee chose Tennessee

We own a cabin nearby. We purchased the vacation rentals because of their location and to help promote the forest, mountain and lake scenery of Monroe Country Tennessee.

What makes this cottage unique

Gorgeous views. Light, spacious house. Restful setting. Clean and comfortable! Great motorcycling, hiking, mountain biking, boating, fishing or just plain old relaxing. Bountiful birds and wildlife. Free wifi and long distance telephone through Magic Jack. Garage to store kayaks, bikes, motorcycles,canoes, boats etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We are so extremely happy that we found this house! With it being big enoughf for all of us (3 grown ups and 4 children), clean like my own home (and I'm a little of a neat-freak), very welcoming and with a very well kept yard for the children to play in, this vacation rental is the best we have stayed at! The area was really good too and though it takes a little drive to get to a store, the calmness is so worth it. We will definitly come back next time we go to TN, absolutly positivly no doubt about that!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were supposed to check in late but Lee worked hard so we could get in the house earlier...and that he did. We were coming down the driveway and Lee was heading out. Lee is a very nice man, talked to us a bit before he left. Kept in constant communication with us from the time of booking until the day we checked out. The house was perfect, fit the description of the property exactly. Lee left us a very nice welcome basket!!! We were a group of six adults, plenty of room for us all, 4 motorcycles fit nicely in the garage. Got a lot of use out of the large back deck during our down time. Could not have asked for anything more. Spacious and well taken care of inside and out. Will definitely rebook this property when we comeback. Not a deal breaker by any means, but my only concern would be the stone drive way for any new riders on a motorcycle (we drove down the grass).

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great review! We are happy that you were pleased and comfortable and had safe travels. Many groups of riders have stayed with us and everyone loves the scenic rides and beautiful roads in the area. Thank you for leaving the cottage in great shape! We welcome you back any time! (We have never had anyone mention the crushed stone driveway before. Maybe we will consider getting it paved. We hope that doesn't scare any riders away since the grass is a great solution and it is only about 200 feet long. ) Many more happy trails to you!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The area was a little out of the way, but was a peaceful place to be. We enjoyed the quite of the woods. We were hoping to see wild life, but because of the time of year, we understood that most of wild life would stays higher up were it was cooler. The property was clean, the house was also clean and had plenty of space for 6 adults. Enjoy the motorcycles rides we took into the mountains. We went with only the intention of riding which we did. All restaurants that we ate at were good. No complaints there. The attractions were the Smokey Mountain itself . We did almost all of the motorcycles trails that were shown to us. Still have a lot we didn't see, but that is for another time. For someone who wants peace and quite this property is the best and I would recommend it to family and friends.
