Enjoy the spectacular views of the beautiful Tusquittee Valley to and from this family-friendly retreat that is secluded, but not remote. It’s easy to find, but really hard to leave. Easy access (no scary drives). The 2 acre property features many flowering trees and shrubs on over 500 feet of cascading Compass Creek. Relax in the front porch swing listening to the birds and rushing water, catch some sun in the meadow, or simply enjoy the crystal clear creek-fed pond just feet from the screened back porch. You just won't find a better Smoky Mountain vacation bargain!
