Spence Cove River Farmhouse: Fish,Tube,Hike-RELAX!
Additional Location Information
Located on a century old family farm, the Farmhouse faces a gorgeous pool on the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon River. The house is so close to the River it feels as if you could cast your fishing rod from a second floor window. The grassy bank along the River is sloped-not steep, but not flat. It has both sun and shade. The water depth in the middle averages 6ft and the width and length of the pool is comparable to 2 olympic sized swimming pools. However, there are many places shallow enough for young and old to dip their toes in without going for a swim. The River has sets of shoals that are mild rapids (Class I, maybe Class II, in whitewater terms) and it is easily floated by canoe, kayak, or an inflatable.
The house has plenty of yard space and is surrounded by towering Pecan, Chestnut, and Maple trees. On one side is a small creek and fenced pasture. On the other side is a large grassy field that is kept mowed and ready for recreation. Behind the house is more yard space; and beyond that lies a shady trail alongside the creek. Above the creek lies a trail that leads to the top of the mountain.
The house is located in a rural residential and farm area on a quiet, paved road that runs alongside the River. The paved road dead ends about 1/8 mile past the Farmhouse, about one mile outside the Sevierville city limits. Although it is not completely secluded, a few hours may pass before a Guest sees a car or a neighbor walk by. There is plenty of space between the house and others; and there are no nearby cabin rentals. The circle driveway is level next to house and gently sloped around circle; there are plenty of parking spaces.
Just a few minutes from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville and even closer to Dollywood and Splash Country. Easy access, no traffic congestion and no steep or curvy roads.
