Description from owner

Description

This RUSTIC retreat is a wonderful escape from modern amenities and will allow you to get back to nature in a very private, magnificent mountain setting. 5000 ft elevation with 360 degree views of the Smoky Mountains. Ample hiking trails, easily accessible to Smoky Mountain National Park. After a day of hiking, relax in the hot tub or refresh in the private, rustic SPRING FED pool. The home is older, VERY RUSTIC and does not include modern amenities - no air conditioning. SPECIAL NOTE: due to the high elevation and design of the home (lots of glass), it is not suitable for small children or the elderly. The grounds include a nature trail, accompanied by a hand made rail fence, that leads to the private fish pond. The road to the house is GRAVEL but in good condition. Natural beauty and rustic architecture have been carefully carried throughout the grounds in order to create a magnificent, SECLUDED mountain top setting. Two stone fireplaces will keep you warm and toasty during the cool fall evenings. RUSTIC spring fed pool closes just after Labor Day. Pool is NOT heated. Please plan to arrive during daylight hours - no street lights in the mountains. Sports cars, convertibles, motorcycles and RV's are NOT recommended for the driveway. All wheel drive cars and mid size SUV's are encouraged. The home is RUSTIC, older and lovingly worn. If you are expecting a newer home, this will not meet your expectations. Please plan accordingly. Please read the entire description thoroughly before booking. This home is for nature lovers and people who want to experience the rustic lifestyle of the mountain region. The POOL is rustic and is spring fed which means it will be very cool most of the summer. No Diving allowed since pool is 2ft-5ft deep. Swim at your own risk - owner assumes no responsibility. When booking, you acknowledge review of the Spa and Pool Regulations posted in this listing. Please enjoy our unique, rustic retreat designed by Norwegian architect, Bernardo Rostad. Be prepared to see lots of wildlife and amazing sunrises !!! *Do NOT book via RedAwning Property Management. They are not authorized to advertise this home.
