Will definitely stay again

  • 5 of 5

Very charming and historic place with that old town feel but has been updated nicely with all the modern amenities (connecting to Alexa was cool and the wifi is plenty strong for Netflix watching on your devices when not out and about). Semi-private rural setting and conveniently located for quick access to necessities, shopping, etc. Roughly 20 minutes and basically a straight shot from the driveway to downtown Knoxville which we experienced New Years celebrations at the Market Square - lots of fun! Close to Cade's cove and the Smokies for a nice day trip. Plenty of room to stretch out and be lazy if you so desire. Will definitely stay again next time we are in the area.

It was an honor being the first guests.

Absolutely Love the Yellow Tea Cup Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five was fortunate enough to spend our Spring Break at the "Yellow Tea Cup Cottage". We had a great time. This adorable cottage was the perfect retreat after long days of exploring Knoxville and all of beautiful East Tennessee. My kids loved the "farm" atmosphere... from petting the horse and goats, to sitting in the dining room with the cows looking at us! It was very relaxing! Looking forward to our next stay! -- The Whittakers

Relaxing and refreshing

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as the pictures shows. It is a quick 15 to 20 minute drive to almost everything around Knoxville. Close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg that one could make a day drive there. Owner was great and super quick to respond. We requested an iron and ironing board late in the evening, Christy had one dropped off with in the hour. Enjoyed the southern hospitality of Tennessee. Enjoyed watching the neighbors animals- goats, cattle, horse.

I have had extraordinary experience!

The tea cup cottage is amazing! A good opportunity to interact with nature. This is the ideal place where sincerity and relaxation attain the right balance.

The property is located closer to downtown so, was perfect to us.

Christie and her mom were perfect host. Extra stars for them!

The home was clean, well-equipped and decorated. Everything about our visit was fantastic!

Definitely to come back here Christie’ house.

Thank you Christie and family!
