    The Farmhouse faces a gorgeous pool on the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon River. The house is so close to the River it feels as if you could cast your fishing rod from a second floor window. The grassy bank along the River is sloped-not steep, but not flat. It has both sun and shade. The water depth in the middle averages 6ft and the size is comparable to 2 olympic sized swimming pools. However, there are many places shallow enough for young and old to dip their toes in without going for a swim.

    The house has plenty of yard space and is surrounded by towering Pecan, Chestnut, and Maple trees. On one side is a small creek and fenced pasture. On the other side is a large grassy field that is kept mowed and ready for recreation. Behind the house is more yard space; and bey...

She provided us with a travel guide that was full of tips and shortcuts that the local use. The house was immaculate. It had basically everything you needed for your stay. If there were items that were lacking Diana had... more

Thank you for such a thorough and glowing review! We also appreciate the clarification (private communication) on the bed issue (upon first reading it appeared there was an issue with all the mattresses!).

The space available for our use was excellent. We enjoyed the big yard. It was great for the grandchildren and the pets. Most of the family enjoyed hiking up the mountain behind the house. The house itself was very spacious, and had everything we needed for our seven day stay. The only negative we had was that the mattresses on... more
