About the property

There is no better place to count your blessings. Lay in the hammock or swing on the porch while you experience this magnificent mountain view. Play in the woods or hike down to the waterfalls! The many trails on the property are accessible from your private covered porch. Enjoy moonrise from the hot tub after spending your day shopping in Hendersonville, horsing around at FENCE, or visiting the Biltmore House in Asheville.

We are nestled into 70 acres of mixed hardwood forest amid creeks, waterfalls and trails.

About Amy Johnson

Amy & Carl live just down the road from the Pout House with their dogs, Cinderella and Bee, and a cat, Nyenne ("Kitty" for short). Cinderella is disabled and usually walks on three legs, but is a happy, elderly girl. Carl and I usually spend our days at the knit shop up the hill, Kniticality, and are there to answer your questions or help you find your way around the area.

Amy Johnson purchased this cottage in 1942

Why Amy Johnson chose Smoky Mountains

The acreage where the Pout House resides has been in Carl's family since 1942. Carl began visiting here when he was 2 years old, coming up summers with his grandparents, parents and siblings. Carl and Amy purchased several family shares to combine into this property for everyone to love. Our wish is that it brings joy and healing to those who visit as it has to us for generations.

What makes this cottage unique

There is a peace here that goes right in to your heart. Carl loves the magnificent views and the breezes. Amy likes that the property is so easy to access from major roads, but still retains the quiet unspoiled feel of deep woods. Both of us just enjoy watching the trees, wading the streams, seeing the wildlife, and wandering the trails with Cinderella and Bee as companions and as guides.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Couldn't ask for a better mountain retreat. Stayed 2 days, brought our own groceries, never left the property. Can't wait to come back.

Private cottage with nearby waterfall

  • 4 of 5

This was a simple cottage with no neighbors in sight, a mountain view, and a beautiful waterfall within walking distance. It was only a 15 minute walk. I slipped and fell down on the wet rock, but was not hurt. It was even caught on video. The owner was helpful and made herself available if we had any concerns about our stay. We had fun sitting in the hot tub at night. The sky was lit up around the mountain. Stay here if you want an affordable and secluded getaway.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful and secluded, but close to town. The drive to Columbus is gorgeous. And Saluda is close too, but most places to eat close early. Loved the swing. It was our favorite spot to just relax, read a book, or watch the clouds drift by.

The cottage has most basic necessities. Only thing I would have liked was a pizza pan (very minor) and watch the toaster. It does burnt toast very well. These were very minor things.

The cottage is small, but we loved being out on the porch, so no problem for us. The beds are very comfortable. Hot tub is nice after a hike.

We did go on a hike at Jones Gap State Park to Rainbow Falls. Beautiful place, tough hike of about 4 miles. Many waterfalls around to explore for all types of adventurers. Loved this area.

Amy is super helpful and nice. She was quick to answer any questions we had.

The only real complaint was we had to leave and come home. Hoping to come back soon.

lackluster trailer

  • 2 of 5

The property was nice and secluded but the "cabin" was actually a really tiny lopsided trailer. Our bed was slanted and it was difficult to walk the back "hallway " without bumping into a wall. The kids bedroom did not have a door which was problematic since it was right next to the front door and we were hanging out on the porch after they went to bed. So, we had to close their windows and whisper while we were outside and sneak past their door when we went inside. The only fan/AC was in the living area so the bedrooms were stuffy even thought the temp outside was great. The kitchen was tiny and unequipped. There wasn't even a colander. The stove was gas and stunk up the place. Overall this place is just inadequate for 4-5 people. There isn't enough seating in the living area to watch TV, play games or eat. There is seating on the porch was it wasn't lit well.
