          Cute Retreat

          House is great - was disappointed that the outdoor fire table didn’t have any gas (and didn’t find out until the last night when we wanted to use it and it was too late to look for a place to fill the propane). We are wine drinkers and there was only 1 wine glass in the house. The house is very cost and clean and I would stay there again if my travels take me back to Knoxville

          5/5 Excellent

            Perfect for us

            This charming, remodeled cottage was just as expected. Our king size bed was comfy. The accommodations were great for us as we like quiet locations. We loved seeing the horses and goats in the adjacent field. The proximity to Knoxville and sightseeing was ideal. We hope to visit again.

            5/5 Excellent


              This is the third time we’ve stayed at this house. Very clean and comfortable. The bed is so comfortable. My granddaughters loved playing in the toy room upstairs. The house is in a peaceful setting - you feel you’re out in the country yet you’re quite close to both Knoxville and Alcoa. Christie is so nice and welcoming.
