Property description

This retreat is located at the end of a private road and the porch is a stone's throw from a beautiful fully stocked creek. We have included things which we feel you will appreciate during your stay. The porch and creek are the most inviting. Reading a good book while sitting on the porch is a must. A hot tub as well if you want to relax. Fully stocked Kitchen, linens, and towels provided.
Great Smoky Mountain Railway Depot and Museum just 20 minutes away enjoy an excursion train , Thomas the tank engine train or The Polar Express train. All the excursions are popular

Alarka Creekside Retreat is located in a small valley which contains only 3 total properties and is quite private but only a short distance from the paved road. Although the atmosphere will make you feel much further removed from civilization. Relaxation and Natural Surroundings are the order of things for this area.

Several snow ski areas are within a short drive from this location.
