You are sitting on top of the foothill mountains to the Great Smoky Mountains so you have the best possible view of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains! No other view even begins to compare to this one! I've lived here for 20 years and I'm still amazed every day at how beautiful it is. It never gets old. It's like watching God's living art! The views change by the minute with the weather. It can be snowing, the leaves changing colors in the fall, colors in a sunrise or sunset, or just a rain shower passing by is beautiful to watch. Pictures can’t possibly capture the beauty of these mountain ranges and over looking Happy Valley. Sitting on the edge of a rock bluff on top of the Foothills Parkway near Look Rock and Tail of the Dragon. Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Cherokee are all close by.
If you are looking for quality, a unique experience and a very clean place to just RELAX you’ve found it! We go the extra mile for our guests. We provide fresh water in the hot tub for each guest.

I personally clean the entire house meticulously including wiping door knobs and remotes with antibacterial wipes between each guest. We apologize but this home is not suitable for children under 12 years of age.

An easy 1/2 mile hike leads to the observation tower which provides a spectacular 360-degree panoramic view of the mountains. The Foothills Parkway is not as busy as other roads in the park, so this is a great place to get away from the crowds and traffic, especially during the peak fall leaf color viewing times in October. The Parkway is 20 miles long with many scenic pull-offs. Look Rock is at the highest point along the Parkway. The National Park Service maintains a picnic area and a campground at Look Rock.

The Cherohala Skyway is a 43-mile (69 km) National Scenic Byway and National Forest Scenic Byway that connects Tellico Plains, Tennessee, to Robbinsville, North Carolina in the southeastern United States.

Along with multiple vistas and overlooks, the skyway provides easy vehicular access to various protected and recreational areas of the Unicoi Mountains, including the Citico Creek Wilderness, the Bald River Gorge Wilderness, and the remote interior of the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest.
There's plenty of activity to do here or just sit on the veranda and relax!
