About Harry and Kathy Swart

Two brothers and their wives are the proud owners of this home. One resides in the beautiful state of Colorado, which inspired the name of the house and the other resides in Central Florida.We have been visitors and land owners in the area since 1995 and have finally built our vacation dream home on this beautiful mountain top site.

Harry and Kathy Swart purchased this house in 2012

Why Harry and Kathy Swart chose Smoky Mountains

Over the years we have found this area to be peaceful and beautiful yet full of opportunities for outdoor activities. The people of this wonderful valley that we have come to know are warm and friendly and we have developed many lasting friendships. Every time we arrive in the valley we feel like this is home; and now we can say that it truly is our home away from home.

What makes this house unique

This home has one of the most beautiful views in the area. Locals who have visited our home are awed by the unobstructed beauty of the view. We feel blessed to be able to share our home with you and have taken great care to provide you with a wonderful experience. And now you are only a short 10 minute drive to the beautiful new Harrah's casino.

Perfect Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four plus another family of 6 stayed here for the 4th of July week. The rental was just about as good as they come. Everything inside was just as described and even better. Plenty of space to spread out and tons of activities for the kids. Beautiful views, great accommodations. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

We have found our home for future mountain trips!!!

  • 5 of 5

The quick review is this home is so incredibly clean and beautiful. And the views are amazing too.

Owners are so thoughtful. We had plenty of coffee, soaps, shampoos, garbage bags....we really felt like pampered guests.

The living room furniture is very comfortable. My favorite spot was the

'Puzzle' table in between kitchen and living room. We completed three puzzles and yet I was able to watch tv with the family and look out on the incredible views. Perfect vacation for me!

There is a big and new gas grill that we used most nights. There's a very nice Ingles 15 minutes away.

Boys enjoyed playing pool downstairs. The downstairs area is huge. This house could really accommodate more than the 4 of us. We loved having so much space.

This truly will be our go to home for our mountain trips.

The owners and the rental manager were very easy to reach. I had a question before we left for our trip and the owners called me back very quickly. They truly were just a phone call away!

Even prettier in person...

  • 5 of 5

This is the one stop looking! We had such a great weekend here. The views are even better in person if that can even be possible! They have every appliance you could think of for cooking. The house is completely undated inside and the cleaning lady does an amazing job. Everything was immaculate upon arrival. Surround sound, remote controlled gas fireplace, and Wi-Fi. There is an air hockey table in a separate room with a trundle bed. I'm mentioning this because I didn't realize it from the description or photos. We would definitely stay again. I recommend staying 4 days to truly enjoy everything. The casino was maybe 10 minutes away as well as Walmart for supplies. They also offered a military discount which was the deciding factor for our military family. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home!!

Lovely stay for our spring break

  • 4 of 5

This home is in a great location, a close drive to all the attractions we wanted to visit. It also has amazing amenities that kept my family of 5 as well as my in laws entertained at night. Kitchen was a dream, came well equipped with everything I needed. Ingles and Walmart is a short trip away. Beautiful views, was able to see the rising of the pink moon before clouds covered it.

I highly recommend this property. Thank you!

Note - There's a cardinal that comes every morning and flies into the windows.

nice view, lots of amenities to keep kids busy on rainy day

  • 5 of 5

Took a trip for spring break with my family and my sisters. Plenty of room for everyone. Great game room with pool table, air hockey and ping pong. Beautiful view and fully stocked home with everything you could every need for relaxing or cooking. Only thing I could say negative was that its a bit out of the way if your looking for outdoor adventures like hiking or sightseeing. But I am sure a lot of the homes in NC might be that way. We still took the hour or two drive to some hiking trails as everyone wanted to see some waterfalls and beautiful nature. I now have the bug to start looking for something to buy up that way for my family.
