Mountain Chalet at the top of the Smokies!
There's a special place tucked away in the mountains of East Tennessee where you can breathe the freshest air, marvel at spectacular views and refuel your soul! It is called The English Mountain Resort.
Enjoy the Smokey Mountains at it best in my English Mountain Resort condo located on top of English Mountain. The English Mountain Resort is one of the Smokey Mountain's hidden surprises. It is located above the Forbidden Caverns which are located under the Smokies. You experience your own beautiful views of the mountains and valleys on the 7 mile drive around and up English Mountain. It is located 4 1/2 miles from Forbidden Caverns. Blowing Cave Road will change into Alpine Drive, but you do not leave the highway until you reach Cove Road and the English Mountain Resort will be located on the left about 150 yards. My chalet will sleep 6. It has a queen size bed in the master bedroom, a queen and twin bed in the loft area, and a sofa that can be used as a twin bed. The condo has a stone, wood burning fireplace with wood on the wrap around deck. The kitchen has been recently remodeled. It has a dishwasher, large refrigerator with ice maker and a washer and dryer. From the balcony you can almost touch the clouds. I love seeing the sun setting over the treetops, the morning sun breaking over the mountain and the moon floating above the mountains and treeline. The balcony has a swing that you will enjoy while absorbing the peace and beauty of nature at its best! Even though you will enjoy the remoteness of the chalet, the chalet has internet service, phone, and cable TV. Cable is in each bedroom and the living room. The English Mountain Resort has a pool, sauna and an exercise room.
Several years ago, English Mountain was the home of a Prestigious Medical Facility that used the wonderful, mineral springs located just a short distance from the English Mountain Resort to treat their patients. The Doctor that owned the facility claimed the minerals found in the springs were healing for so many medical conditions that many people suffered from. His patients must have agreed because people would come from all over the Country to English Mountain so that they could soak their bodies in the minerals spring water for health purpose. He had a hotel built so that they could stay on English Mountain for their mineral treatments and enjoy the peace, serenity and solitude of beautiful English Mountain. I don't know if it was the wonderful mineral water or the peaceful English Mountain but people came for years for the healing powers found here. It was popular until the hotel burnt down several years ago. This condo has the mineral water. I have always told my guests to turn the water on in the bathtub when they come in and let it run while they unpack their vehicle so that there won't be a smell of the minerals because you can sometimes smell the minerals that are found in the water. If you would like to try the therapy of the mineral water, do not do this and If you happen to get a whiff of a chemical when you are bathing just know that there is not an extra charge and not only are you getting a great bath but it could actually make you feel better. lol
If you are seeking peace, seclusion and relaxation this is the perfect place. If you want peace, seclusion, relaxation and enjoy restaurants, shows, sight seeing, etc., this is the perfect place because it is a beautiful drive to anywhere you would want to go. EXPERIENCE the Smokey Mountains! STAY IN THE MOUNTAINS!!
