Serene and Secluded

I had the pleasure of spending my 50th birthday in this beautiful mountain home! It was the perfect setting for all of the things we love to do on a vacation...relaxing, fishing, swimming, enjoying an outdoor fire in the evening and soaking in the beauty of the Smokey Mountains by day!! As others have said, the home is wonderfully equipped with almost anything you could need...and then some...and Annette was a most gracious and accommodating host. The care and love the family puts into their mountain home is evident in every room, and really made us appreciate our time there...the week literally flew by! As motorcycle enthusiasts, we found this to be a fantastic location to explore and enjoy all of the beauty and excitement the area has to offer. We will definitely return to this spot as soon as we are able!!!

A week of pure relaxation

This house is simply beautiful! I stayed here for a week with friends from college and we had an amazing time using the little boats and hanging out on the dock. This home was cozy, clean , open, and very friendly. I would recommend this home to anyone, whether you have kids or want to go with friends. It\'s a perfect vacation spot!

Peaceful Retreat with Pleanty to do

My husband and our 3 children stayed with my Best Friend and her son at this property. It was very spacious, the interior decorating is stunning and at the same time very comfortable. This home was directly on a private lake where our children were able to go kayaking for the first time, (paddles and lifevests were provided), they played hide and seek, we had weeny roasts and smores, the kids went fishing. My husband even made 2 poles out of sticks! The kitchen was completely stocked with any dishes you could need including pots and pans. There were ample blankets throughout the house and lets not forget the outdoor Bed Swing. Wow! That was the most comfortable bed I\'ve slept on, while hearing the waterfall in the distance I easily drifted off to sleep! The mountains were beautiful this time of year and we stumbled upon Franklin, NC Fall Festival the first day we were there. We drove 8hrs from Florida and it was worth every bit of it. Our children didn\'t even mind that they didn\'t have WIFI or internet (and we\'re talking kids that use it everyday). The owner was SO helpful and nice over the phone and helped us come up with things to do and see. Really great experience all around! I could go on and on! We\'ll be back!!!!

Just What the Doctor Ordered

Our group consisted of me, my sister and our 4 dogs. We wanted to \"get away from it all\" and have the ability to enjoy what we love most: Peace and Quiet. You can keep yourself occupied without ever leaving the property and still feel like you just relaxed the whole time. Miss Annette has done a lot to ensure you have everything you need and then some. If you need it and can\'t find it, you didn\'t look hard enough! Sitting on the porch makes it hard to believe you are still close to \"town\" and the drive turning either way from the driveway is awesome. The Bull Frog Serenade every night is unique and sometimes quite humorous! We recorded it several times so we could share the noise when we got home. The fishing was light on the catching part, but we still fished every day just so we could watch the trout swim by the worms and laugh (and we did catch 9 fish by accident!). We have stayed at several VRBO rentals and that is the first place we look when deciding on a trip. This one ranks in the top 3 and we would definitely stay here again.

Heaven on Earth

Our family stayed in this beautiful place for two weeks from June 4-18, 2016, and we loved every minute! We were completely \"unplugged\" by choice and particularly loved the peace and quiet and serenity of this cabin. Every morning I enjoyed getting up before anybody else to make the coffee and open the blinds and sit on the deck to enjoy watching the lake wake up. Every night we enjoyed the bullfrog symphony....little ones and granddaddy ones who croaked all night. The night I spent sleeping with one of our granddaughters on the swinging bed was wonderful....the sky was full of stars and the bullfrogs sang us to sleep. Our little dog loved running around and exploring. We saw a turtle lay her eggs on the dam and also saw a Great Blue Heron, many small birds, and a Bald Eagle! The view of the mountains is so beautiful and peaceful. Annette was always available if something came up and so easy to talk to. Her magical decorating touches are superb! The kitchen was so wonderfully equipped! I cannot say enough about our experiences in this magical and special place. We plan to come back and experience the lake in the Fall and Spring. Two weeks in this place was such therapy for us and we shared many happy and memorable times with our family having delicious food and long talks and laughs. The outdoor shower is so wonderful that we plan on adding one to our own home! Thank you, Annette, for everything. Your home is truly Heaven on Earth!

Lakeside oasis

We brought our grandkids ranging in age from 9-18 to this magical oasis. They spent hours in the water playing with rope swing, swimming, fishing, paddle boating etc. We took Annette\'s suggestions and explored the nearby waterfalls (kids favorite was Bust you Butt falls). They slid down the waterfall and jumped off the cliff. This is a great place for families! The house is well equipped for cooking and plenty of space for those seeking solitude. I spent every morning on the deck with my coffee before the kids woke up just enjoying the cool air and great view. Loved this place!
