Wander out into the woodlands and onto the river bluff to the six-person hot tub on a winding, custom-built deck. You're close enough to listen to the river as you marvel at the stars and soak away all your cares.....ahhhhh! You are going to love being nestled in the woodlands right outside the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

Genesis is spacious and very nicely furbished. The location just outside Great Smoky Mountains National Park can't be beat. Subtracted a star for the hot tub not working and the game room futon bed being beyond its life time - as in ridiculously uncomfortable.
