The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house will remind you of your grandmother's house, and when you stay here, you will not have a care in the world. At 'The Flarity House,' there is always a gentle breeze and clean air. The huge trees in the yard cast a comfortable shadow on the front porch. This house has more native shrubs, trees, and flowers in the yard than any house on Lookout Mountain. There are numerous outdoor recreation opportunities in the area; including, the lake with fish in the back yard.
