About Linda Kaempfer

My husband & I grew up in south Florida. We met at college and married after graduation. We vacationed in NC for yrs with our children. Found it a pleasant change from Fl traffic & heat and always enjoyed the many activities available. We've joined a hiking club, and have met many friends with similar interests. We have 3 grown children & 6 grandchildren who love to visit here, too.

Linda Kaempfer purchased this house in 2009

Why Linda Kaempfer chose Smoky Mountains

We settled on this particular property because it was just far enough from town, and had an amazing view + we liked the 'gated' community.

What makes this house unique

We built this home and were able to add everything we felt we wanted or could ever need. Our house is very comfortable and roomy. Our kitchen is lacking in nothing. We enjoy our large covered decks almost year round. Even in rainy weather, you can still enjoy the decks and view. Can't seem to get those children up here often enough, so we still spend a bit of time in south Fl. That's why we decided we might as well try renting.

Lovely home with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice home with a beautiful view. My daughter said it didn't feel like a rental but like a family member or friend's house. We loved the decks and watching the hummingbirds. So glad we selected this home.

Words do not describe!!

  • 5 of 5

This was not a rental, this was a home that we stayed in for a week. The location is perfect and so convenient to everything. The white notebook is loaded with information. We spent 2 days hiking and seeing waterfalls in the area, all of them no more than 90 minutes away. We rented a boat from the marina that is 15 minutes away (I have a review of the Mountain View Marina on trip advisor). We went zip lining and whitewater rafting which is less than an hour away. Everything you could possibly need is in the house. The pictures online do not do this cabin justice. The view is breath taking. And the neighbors are welcoming. We will definitely return to this cabin!!!

Great location, Awesome Cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin for Memorial Day weekend. The Drive up is paved and smooth. The View from the cabin was amazing, and the cabin was just as promised. There is a grill on the deck which is perfect along with with plenty of seating to enjoy the view. We personally did not do anything locally because we enjoyed our days 60 miles north at lake Fontana. I always read the reviews and only rent places with good ratings. So to summarize Clean, Comfortable, Spectacular view ,complete home with everything minus food.

Beautiful cabin and scenery

  • 5 of 5

The pictures provided don't do the cabin or the view justice, my family and I were pleasantly surprised and everyone wanted to come see the place. We even stayed in a few nights to enjoy the amenities provided and sit outside to take in the scenery. I would most definitely rent it out again.

Best vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this cabin! We had 5 children and ourselves and there was plenty of room for us all. Everything was there that we needed to be comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet and beautiful!!! The cabin exceeded our expectations and the owner was fantastic about getting back to us with any questions we had. I would highly recommend staying here....... we will be back again!!!
