                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: My husband and I lived and worked in Atlanta for most of our lives, but we LOVE the mountains. Ever since we met we have been going to the mountains to vacation as often as we can. As our family grew, we found the mountains to be the perfect place to hike as a family and enjoy each other’s company as we discovered special places for picnics as a family. They will always love the mountains and all the hidden treasures of beauty, serenity, and just the AWE of God’s magnificent creation. So there has never been any question as to where we want to retire. So my husband built Smoky Cove Cabin. We hope you’ll enjoy all that the Great Smoky Mountains has to offer. You’ll want to keep coming back too!!

                          Why the Owner Chose Whittier:
                          We chose this quaint gated community in Whittier, NC because it is centrally located to ALL of the Great Smoky Mountain region. Drive less than 30 minutes and you can have a picnic in Cades Cove as you watch the elk feed. Or drive less than an hour and spend hours looking at the spectacular Biltmore House and Gardens. Within 15 minutes my husband can play on one of the finest golf courses in the country. Of all the family vacations we’ve taken over the years, we have the fondest memories of our days hiking and discovering the Smoky Mountains. More than anything, we love the seasons and the fact that each season is mild. Occasional winter snows are wonderful. Just put on some soup and sit by the fire as the mountains turn snow white. Spring truly is glorious. Greening of the mountains is a site that is just too beautiful to describe. The creeks and rivers swell as he fisherman and motorcycles flock to the area. Summer is mild. Days are warm, nights are cool. All you desire for Summer living. Fall; The glorious Fall; So beautiful!! You just cannot get enough of this. Location, Location, Location!!!! ……………….For the Soul!!
