Great Smoky Mountains Vacation Rental
The “Great Smoky Mountains National Park” is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. Most of our visitors are familiar with the “Park” and the special beauty of our area. Add to this all the various resort activities available and you have the reason that we are the most visited of any National Park in the nation.
Back in 1910 twenty five years before the park was organized, Sevier County was a very remote farming and logging community. This was the year that the Sims family built “ Caroline’s River Farmhouse” on the bank of the Middle Prong of the Little Pigeon River. This home is a well known landmark in the mountain and farming community and has been photographed and painted by many well know artists. An example can be found in the Robert Tino Gallery.
We have just recently prepared the home for your unique family experience. It is especially geared toward families with young children and allows them to learn about things past while having a fun vacation. If you are interested in history and old time activities this is the place for your vacation or long weekend. Activities include badminton, croquet, horseshoes, and fishing, wading and playing in the river or floating along in an inner tube. Wake up in the morning and hear your neighbors “the cows” mooing away and see the early sun bouncing off the river. Each renter will receive a dozen fresh eggs from the chickens living in the hen spa on the property and a loaf of home made whole wheat sourdough bread so be sure and have a farmhouse breakfast. The kitchen is fully equipped. There are 3 bedrooms, one with a double bed, one with a queen and single and one with two singles. There is only one bathroom, fully equipped, that was added sometime in the eighties it is indoors and the outhouse had been retired. Visit our rental site for more photos and feel free to call anytime to have questions answered we think you will have a good time.
