Peaceful Mountain Getaway - Wheelchair Accessible, Charming And Secluded

Yokie's Place, a beautiful 3-bedroom, 2-bath mountain home, is nestled in the Smoky Mountains in Laurel Valley, a gated mountain resort community that has a gorgeous 18-hole mountain golf course, swimming pool, clubhouse, and other amenities. My mother, Yokie Horton, was confined to a wheelchair, so when I had this home built for her, it was created to accommodate her special needs. My mother is with the Lord now, but this beautiful cabin constantly reminds me of her. So, if you have special needs like my mother, or if you just want to spend some time in the mountains in the down-home comfort of a spacious, beautifully appointed home, Yokie's Place will be perfect for you!

This home has a fully equipped kitchen for all your cooking needs, along with a covered front porch, a covered and screened-in back porch (a great place to enjoy your morning coffee while listening to the little stream at the bottom of the hill), propane barbecue grill, central heat and air, wood-burning fireplace, wide screen TV in the Living Room and TV's in 2 bedrooms, cable, wireless high-speed internet, and a washer and dryer. Linens and towels are provided, as well as bath soap and toilet paper. Also, as our guest at Yokie's Place, you will have FREE use of the Laurel Valley swimming pool.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  diann b.

                                                                  Wonderful Getaway!


                                                                  Yokie's Place is a beautiful, quiet place to stay near the Townsend/Cade's Cove entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The house is very clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Nicely wheelchair accessible, although we didn't need this. The neighborhood is far enough off the main highway to be very quiet, yet quite convenient to the park and other Townsend/Wear's Valley attractions. We visited in the early spring...I would not attempt the driveway in the snow without at least having a 4WD vehicle!

                                                                  Great Handicap Accessible home!

                                                                  Frank L.Northern KY

                                                                  We've stayed in several homes that were supposed to be handicap accessible and this one was by far the best. We had to adjust furniture a bit to accommodate the wheelchair but overall the home worked very well. It's a beautiful home, very nicely furnished and offering great privacy. The driveway is a bit of challenge but we did just fine. We will use this home again in the future.

                                                                  A home away from home!

                                                                  Katie B.

                                                                  Our family loved this house, location and its accessibility for all. The ramp was great as well with the walk in shower for our aunt. We enjoyed walking some of the neighborhood and exploring the creek. It was very quick to get into town and explore the Great Smoky Mountains area and Cades Cove. Our young son lovely called it the Green House and has asked to go back! We plan on staying here again on our next trip up that way.

                                                                  Very nice house with good common areas for family

                                                                  Craig W.

                                                                  The property is close to Cade's Cove for some good hiking. This property is far enough away from Pigion Forge that you do not get the hustle and bustle of that area. We had one small plumbing problem (toilet tank would not refill without making an awful noise) however one call to the owner and it was repaired in less than 3 hours. 3 comfortable beds for 6 adults. We will be back.


                                                                  Townsend, TN, USA
