This RUSTIC retreat is a wonderful escape from modern amenities and will allow you to get back to nature in a very private, magnificent mountain setting. 5000 ft elevation with 360 degree views of the Smoky Mountains. Ample hiking trails, easily accessible to Smoky Mountain National Park. After a day of hiking, relax in the hot tub or refresh in the private, rustic SPRING FED pool.

Natural beauty and rustic architecture have been carefully carri... Read more
