  • Lovely home, immaculately clean.

    "Liz was very helpful and followed up on check-in. We enjoyed our stay, the house was perfect for our daughters with separate living and sleeping quarters. The house is private and was stocked with everything you need for a nice time. Our family would stay again."

  • Gorgeous!! We had such a great stay!

    "We love this condo at Bear Lake Reserve! It was the perfect combination of getting away from it all while still enjoying luxury amenities. The condo is beautifully appointed, two stories with great views from the deck. The Golf club was a quick drive and is worth the gorgeous views. The Lake Club is a great place for dining, swimming and checking out the lake. We took a canoe out and had a nice time, there are also jet skis, kayaks and boats available for rent. Our two year old had such a great time. It was a pleasure working with the owner and rental agency, very kind! We look forward to coming back with friends and family!"

  • The name, "Tender Mercy Retreat," is a perfect fit.

    "This was one of those vacations that makes you feel you've been to a spa. Linda and Tony have provided a warm, relaxing, environment for their guests. The cottage was very clean, and nothing was overlooked when stocking the kitchen. There is a washer/dryer room, huge kitchen, stocked with all the cooking implements you will need, a great dining room, comfy living room, very comfortable king-sized bed, convenient bathrooms, and a sweet puppy (Poppy) to play with our Jack Russell, Finnie. We hiked the property, natural lovely vistas in every direction, visited the llamas, gathered eggs from the henhouse, ate tomatoes from the garden, and left without one remnant of stress left anywhere in our bodies. Waynesville and Lake Junaluska are within quick driving distance, both lovely places to extend the sense of retreat offered by the Tender Mercy experience. One of the best finds in the area - and we hope to be back. Thanks, Linda and Tony, for such a wonderful stay."

Smoky Mountains Travel Tips

Settle into Smoky Mountain Cabins

If you are looking for the time of your life, you should seriously consider booking Smoky Mountain cabins for your next family vacation. A Smoky Mountains vacation, in North Carolina, is just perfect for the whole family. Special destinations like Asheville, Brevard, and Lake Nantahala make for lovely vacations any time of year.

Smoky Mountain Cabins near the National Park

When you plan your own Smoky Mountains vacation, do not leave a day at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park off your list! The park is not only a beautiful place with a substantial size, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as an International Biosphere Reserve. Almost 10 million people visit the park each year to bask in the splendor of the flora and fauna as well as to take advantage of the hiking trails. One of the trails is the Appalachian Trail, so definitely do not leave your hiking boots back at your Smoky Mountain cabins.

Smoky Mountains Rentals with Spectacular Views

If you are planning your Smoky Mountains vacation around taking in some spectacular views, this is the right destination for you. Hike up to Clingmans Dome (6,643 feet), which is the highest point in the Smoky Mountains Park; you'll be able to see for miles and miles. Or, if you prefer Morton’s Overlook, it is en route to Clingmans Dome. Morton’s is ideal for a sunset viewing. But do not book Smoky Mountains rentals without visiting Laurel Falls, which has paved trails if you have trouble hiking or a stroller. The hike concludes at the gorgeous waterfalls.

Get Gems on a Smoky Mountains Vacation

The Smoky Mountain area is known for its gem mining, and not just by professionals! Just a short distance from almost all Smoky Mountains cabins are a variety of gem mines. Some are not open to the public while others are. Many people staying in Smoky Mountains rentals throughout the year try their hand at the gem mining parks and come home with the likes of native rubies, sapphires, and even garnets!
