About Jo Ann Ray

I am an enrolled member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and have lived here most of my life. I was born and raised within a hundred yards of this home. I love nature and the outdoors and there is no better place to have these experiences than in and around Cherokee.

Jo Ann Ray purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Jo Ann Ray chose Cherokee

This was my mom's home. She passed away a few years ago but she loved the peace and quiet. What better way to honor her memory than to share with others what she loved so much.

What makes this cottage unique

Listen to the Ravens Ford River as you relax. Sit on the porch and watch the fire flies or gaze at the night sky. Decompress and relieve the stress. To me, this is what getting away is all about. Slow down the pace and take time to enjoy what makes you happy.

Fantastic Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoy this cabin. It was extremely clean when we arrived. It was furnished very nice. It has some antiques and other nice furnishings. The kitchen has top notch pans and very well equipped with cooking utensils. You should be aware the guest bedroom has a very bed. It was not that difficult to find the cabin but suggest you do it in the daylight. The owner Jo Ann was very nice and extremely accommodating and responsive. It is a very quiet spot and relaxing. TV reception and internet were excellent.

The area is nice and has many streams around the vicinity. We saw lots of elk in the area especially at the entrance to Smokie Mtn Natl Park which is very close by. The drive through the National Park to Gatlinburg was beautiful (about 1 hr.). You will not be disappointed renting Emily’s Place!

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. It was very quiet and peaceful. It had everything we needed. So much better than a motel room. My husband fished and my friend and I just relaxed. Would recommend to everyone. Would suggest that a soap and shampoo holder be put in shower. We will be going back again.

Quaint and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

JoAnn and her family are very nice people with a very nice house. My wife and I arrived to find the home clean and decorated for Christmas. It was very much as advertised. Considering the amount of snow the boundary received during our stay, having a full kitchen was very nice as going out got to be risky. The homes back up generator was also a very nice touch. Despite the temperatures, the home stayed comfortable. Until I get my own place on the boundary, I will be staying here again if it’s available and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet out of the way place that’s close to everything.
