We are NOT Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg! We attract travelers and adventurers, not tourists. If that appeals to you keep reading, we have a great secret to share..... We are still a genuine vacation rental by OWNER (no PM's!) - we do it ALL so you get the best experience!
Welcome to our comfortable and quiet home by the lake. Perfect to get away from it all and completely recharge. Cottage in the Sky is centrally located for motorcycle enthusiasts, cyclists, and hikers. People travel from around the world to ride the mountain roads and the famous US129 Dragon, a twisting 11 miles consisting of 318 curves that takes you into NC. Cyclists are drawn to the challenge of the Foothills Parkway and area roads where you can often see teams of colorful riders. Miles upon miles of National Park trails await novice and experienced hikers alike. You can even take a day hike from our front door into Cades Cove (experienced hikers only)! We've even stocked up on maps to help you plan your adventure! (We're also happy to to give advise or answer questions about local trails and other things to do!) Or simply walk to the lake and float, swim, or fish your cares away!
THINGS TO NOTE:
We are remote, gravel roads and no cable tv (we do have local channels and great WiFi), NO pizza delivery! 2,100 ft atop Chilhowee Mountain and along the scenic Foothills Parkway, the city of Maryville is less than 12 miles away. Lake in the Sky gets it's name for it's elevation. Our private little community is surrounded by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The home is on a peaceful wooded road and includes a separate (private) lake front lot a short 5 minute walk from the house. Lake In The Sky is a 50+ acre stocked lake, great for fishing, swimming, and kayaking. (No motors allowed!) If you like to get away from the crowds, and the hustle and bustle of every day routines, then this is the place for you! You'll want to bring your groceries with you and take advantage of the well stocked kitchen, the nearest store is a good 20 minuets away!
**This is a quiet established community, we expect all of our guests to respect this atmosphere. No parties, no alcohol at the lake**
We are pet friendly but ALL pets must be pre approved. An additional pet fee will apply - not included in the rate.
No land line! Check your carrier for cell service. US Cellular works best.
