We chose this property because of the beautiful location right on the Hiwassee River among the beautiful Smokey Mountains. We both have vacationed in the Smokey Mountains all of our lives.

The property is right on the Hiwassee River! You can watch and listen to the river from the front deck or enjoy the outdoor riverside seating. There is a grill and picnic tables for your convenience. You can also enjoy roasting hotdogs and marshmallows in the fire ring.

It was wonderful!! We enjoyed the homey feel and the peaceful river view.

The rental was well stocked with basic needs. The fire pit was great along with the clear starry night sky.Best tip ever!

Great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. The home is beautiful and well appointed with all the comforts you need and it’s ideally located for site seeing throughout the area. We loved the scenic views of the river and nature from the porch and enjoyed the quiet solitude. We will definitely be back!

Amazing experience! You know outstanding customer service when you see it!

  • 5 of 5

I could write a book about this place and how amazing it really is but don't have the time. The photos really don't do it justice, the fire pit right by the river and the sound of the river is perfect! Had pork and chicken slow smoking with 2 two fire places inside, the fire pit going outside and the smoker. My parents and I stayed here and we stayed at several places while we were on our trip. We know where we'll be staying next time for sure the entire trip. We moved around since when we left for North Carolina we weren't sure how long we would stay and if we would be in one spot the whole time. The customer service and hospitality from the Thomas family was above and beyond what we expected. We felt right at home and my Dad's battery died and he called them for help and they sent someone right over to help us out and give us a jump. We had really cold weather come in so I think the fish were hiding but was still so much fun and so peaceful and relaxing. We got to see the difference between others and the customer service of the Thomas family while we stayed in North Carolina. Thank you so much for everything!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The HomeAway description doesn't begin to describe how great this place really is. I've stayed at a lot of vacation rentals in the U.S. and overseas but never have I been so surprised at how great the rental was.

Robbie & RJ certainly run a first class rental location. Keep up the good work.
