Close vicinity to the Great Smoky Mountains, whitewater rafting, zip lining, hiking the AT, and elk viewing. 30 minutes from Gatlinburg, 40 min to Pigeon Forge. Guided hikes, whitewater rafting, and elk viewing, available for additional charge.
The loft has a hand designed custom wood banister. There is no stairway. You must climb a ladder to get to the loft.
Kitchen and bathroom, my living room and TV if you wish.
Interaction with guests
I live on the main level, below the loft. I will leave you alone, or if you wish, I can suggest things to do, give directions, etc. For additional cost, i can arrange for whitewater rafting, elk tours, and hiking guide.
Other things to note
For those who are coming from the west, this is eastern time zone. Also, there is a 50 yard walk uphill to the house. I have 2 friendly dogs.
No smoking indoors. Please show up by 9pm, or before dark. Please be kind to my dogs - they are my family. Thank you.
I'm very friendly. I will show you around or leave you alone. Your choice! Just so you know, the loft is in my private residence. It overlooks the living room. You will have a half-bath of your own, and the shower is in the full bathroom. I will, however, give you privacy!
Important: you cannot trust your GPS - the cell service is intermittent. *Please call* to let me know approximately when you will arrive, so that I can meet you.
One more thing I've recently learned to make clear: I want your visit to be enjoyable for both of us.
So if you don't like dogs, please don't book. If you are uptight, judgemental, or critical, please - don't book. Come here to relax and enjoy your stay!
Ok, now, if you decide to book, this is important:
Again, the cell phone service here is hit and miss. The GPS - don't rely on it. *Please call* or text a day ahead of time to let me know approximately what time you will be arriving. If you need a tour guide, hiking guide, raft guide, whatever, please let me know a week ahead of time so that I can clear my schedule. This is because I sometimes don't get messages or calls until the next day or two.
I go way out of my way to accommodate my guests. I want to make your stay a 5 star experience. So if anything is substandard, please tell me and give me a chance to correct the problem while you are here - Thank you!
Seriously, Don't trust the GPS! Don't trust the GPS! ESPECIALLY AFTER DARK. Thank you
