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, perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay! The views from the beautiful, wide covered decks are unrivaled. As avid cooks, we could not have asked for a better stocked kitchen, with any and all equipment and tools we could possibly dream of (and more!). We could not have asked for a better stay.

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is beautiful. Usually the pictures are nicer than the property, this one was the opposite. View is incredible from everywhere. Location is convenient for Ocoee, Nantahala, and especially Hiwassee lake.Looking forward to staying again next year.

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!!!
