Property description

Go Back In Time in This Simple and Sweet Cottage, That is charming, Homey, a real cozy but not overly fancy but special jewel and the price is right for a get away that stays within budget!

It's a modest cottage designed for a charming getaway, not fancy, but clean, roomy and so private! It's tucked a 1/2 mile from the main road. Accommodates 12 if you want to be really close together! It is great for those on a budget for a get away! Surrounded 360 by mountains, creeks and pastures with untouched beauty, a larger cabin is 1 acre away but both are private or rented together.

Tucked away in a pristine undeveloped natural mountain and valley, only a half a mile from a main access road, Cottage in the Mountains Heart offers almost unheard of seclusion as if you and yours were pioneer frontiersmen discovering this stunning terrain for the first time on your own terms!

Located in the charming rural town of Oliver Springs, Tennessee it is conveniently accessible to the city amenities with a 15 min drive to Oak Ridge, Tennessee and 25 min drive to Knoxville, Tennessee. It is the perfect location to serve the duality of unplugged rest and relaxation and an hour access to activities that the Smoky Mountain towns of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg offer.

The Setting of Cottage in the Heart of The Mountains has a true rustic feel that compliments the surrounding nestled in a valley protected by mountains all the way around you. There is a Large Log Cabin available as well.

With 4 bed rooms and two baths, it is exceptionally unique on so many levels and is accommodating and conducive to ensure joyous family gatherings and celebrations. It is located in the center of 80 heavily wooded acres with space for recreational activities such as hiking trails to bring families together. Driving into the site down a beautiful lane immediately creates a sense of peace and oneness with nature with the arrival in a middle of a 360 degree vista of ridges of stunning mountains, streams, rivers, hardwoods, evergreens, waterfalls, trails and valley meadow pastures of green with cows and chickens! It can accommodate up to 14 adults and there is plenty of room for kids with sleeping bags!

The Home is approximately 1,750 sq. ft. ranch style.

The house has a great Large open Kitchen with an island, bar and pass through, right off the Living Room with a wood Burning Stone Fireplace! There are 2BRs on each side of the central living area with a bath also on both sides. The is also a bonus room that can be used as another BR or a den or Dining Room, depending on your needs. There is a full size Washer and Dryer and a Deck off the back with Fantastic Views of the Valley and Pastures and 360 Mountains. The Home has New wood and Tile Floors and a Huge Garden Tub and separate shower in the Master.

The Cottage is about 1/2 mile off of the secondary two lane very tucked away. It sits in a beautiful flat valley so the view from the valley center is 360 mountain views with a stream and a river behind the house about 200ft. The charm of the place is that it is so private and tucked away on 80 acres. We also have another cabin about 4 acres away but they are not at all insight of each other. Oak Ride, TN is about 6 miles away and has all the convinces you may need, such as Wal-Mart, Kroger, Restaurants and a Mall. Knoxville is 24 miles away, Galtinburg, TN and The Smokie Mountains are 1.5 hours away and so is the Builtmore House in Asheville, NC.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: We are a Family who has had the property for generations. We have had very precious and super special times there and the peace and joy linger in the air and are tangible and spiritual. We are loving, kind and caring as a family and are thrilled when others see the beauty that has been and will always be in our hearts the way we do.

Why the Owner Chose Knoxville:
It is a Sweet and Gentle Cottage, that seems from a much earlier time. It is also a Great Value for those who just want a great truly removed get away to relax and explore the amazing natural beauty without breaking the bank! It is rustic yet modern, it is so tucked away but and totally secluded but only 15 min from most anything you desire. The nature there has never been disturbed and most of the millions of trees are old and full of character. The trails, creeks, water falls, pastures, graveyard and caves make for a ton of fun for the curious hiker. The 360 views from the house in the winter months of the mountains are stunning (180 views when the leaves are on the trees) and the 360 views year round from the pastures and creeks are year round.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
seclusion and privacy, the huge parcel of land of 80 acres, with the option of utilizing the Large Log cabin as well about 4 acres away, the rustic real cottage feel, has charm, warmth and a simple sweet haven away from the madness we so need to escape from on occasion, the rustic, woodsy feel combined with modern conveniences. Also the amount of people that it can accommodate can be up to 14, but the prices remain affordable per person.
