Interaction with guests
Catch & Release is built over a creek which feeds into a fishing pond with a fountain in the front yard pond and within a decorative landscape. The cottage sits on 4 acres and is surrounded by a forest, whose small critters come by to inspect the guests from time to time. The mornings are wonderful when the fountain comes on. You sit and drink your coffee and listen to the soft sound of the splashing water. We added a whole house Generac Generator for those storms that take down trees. If you are looking for interior comfort, an immaculate property, serenity, comfort, and activity beyond your dreams - Catch & Release is the place to find it. We upgrade the interiors every year so it will be different every time you return! Come on over!

How to get there
Catch & Release is within an 8 hour or less driving distance of 80% of the US population. It is easy to get to via the interstate road systems. We are located in a gated community whose 24 hour manned security center is there to log you in, provide directions to C&R, answer questions, and provide assistance to you and your family.

Even though it is secluded in the mountains, it is within 10 minutes of the center of all the activity in the Smoky Mountains. There is Dollywood, 4 golf courses, fishing, winter skiing in Gatlinburg, outlet shopping, a variety of kid entertainment and rides, and many affordable restaurants. There is no place like it for a family vacation.
