The opposite of civilized! This is it, out in the country, way in the woods, and top of the mountain. You just can't get further 'away from it all'. But wait...you are not out of touch. We offer free high speed Internet and free long distance calling. This home sits on its own with forest all around. Have your camera ready at all times because you just never know what kind of wildlife will meander by. All the rooms are very spacious but you won't even notice because you'll be out on the deck day and evening enjoying the multiple mountain range views. The home is fully equipped with all the necessities and many of the niceties. You're going to be very comfortable and not want to leave but if you do leave the home you'll find plenty to do in the surrounding area like hiking, gem mining, an...The opposite of civilized!

This is a lovely cabin retreat deserving a 5 star rating. Perched atop a mountaintop with a lovely view of the Smoky mountains, it offered us a great vacation rental. A wrap-around porch with 2 large picnic tables, many chairs, and 2 porch swings are...More

Thank you! Glad you had fun tucked away so far back in the woods. Did you see deer, bear or wild boar?
