Tellico Plains cottage description

Come back to your country retreat after a day filled with outdoor activities! 'Lakewood' is a perfect Lake and Mountain Getaway! The private, 1 acre country setting overlooking the valley of the northern tip of Tellico Lake in the Cherokee National Forest is remote enough for peace and serenity but only one mile from the boat ramps at Tellico and Chilhowee Lake. Lakewood isn't fancy but it is clean and comfortable! Read what others have said about us!

If you love scenic drives you will love the 100% paved road access and the central location to Hwy 360, 129 ('Tail of the Dragon') and the Cherohala Skyway in Tellico Plains. Both are considered world class scenic byways especially for motorcyclists!

Situated near the Chillhowee Dam, there are two bedrooms with queen sized beds. The youth room has a twin sized trundle bed that sleeps two and a bunk with a twin bed on top and a double sized futon sleeper on the bottom. Lakewood sleeps six adults or four adults and four kids very comfortably. There is also a large livingroom with two couches and a huge country kitchen! Perfect for Family/Friends Reunions. Half way between FLA and Mid-West! SEE MORE DETAILS AND PICTURES BY CLICKING ON THE LINK BELOW TO OUR WEBSITE!

Just 7 miles further up Mount Pleasant Road in a quiet, remote mountain hollow is, '5 bedroom - The Cottage at Hemlock Grove.' (VRBO listing 44444) For families or groups looking for a mountain hide-a-way, this is it! Located on 300 acres deep within the Cherokee National Forest. This larger cottage offers access to hiking, trout fishing or wonderful day trips to the Citico Creek Wilderness Area, Cherohala Skyway, Fort Loudon State Park, Sequoia Museum, Tellico Plains or even Pigeon Forge. Sleeps up to 20 with the additional bunkhouse. See all the details on our Website link below!
