Watch from the spacious patio as the kids play in the yard, where they'll have plenty of room to let their imaginations run free and enjoy hours of laughter and fun. The Little River runs through the property, offering a terrific way to cool off on warm days. If you prefer to stay dry, take in spectacular views on shore from the comfort of the beach chairs provided for guest use. As evening rolls around, share stories around the dazzling firepit under the breathtaking southern stars.


You simply can't beat this home's spectacular location! From here, you'll have easy access to abounding outdoor recreation in the vicinity, including hiking, off-roading, biking, horseback riding, and tubing - start upstream and let the Little River languidly guide you back down to the property's gorgeous backyard! You can also rent a kayak and put it in the river, directly off the property, for a spectacular 9-mile journey that will provide you with plenty of fond memories! Additionally, you'll be close to several renowned destinations, such as Foothills Parkway, Cades Cove, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, where the world-famous Dollywood is located.

Could have been better

  • 2 of 5

The pictures are deceiving. The pictures show a very clean exterior and interior cottage. This is not what we found on our recent stay. The house needs a serious deep clean. The entrance to the cottage (double wide trailer) was a glass door that led into the main bedroom and the blinds on the door had missing slats. Indeed, the large windows in the family room and the sliders in the family room had vertical blinds that were very dirty, had missing slats and slats that fell off every time you tried to open the sliders. Cobwebs were on the ceiling fan, in the hallway and in the kitchen. The standing fan that was in the house was disgusting. The cushions on the kitchen chairs (both at the counter and at the table) were filthy! The outside table was dirty and the cushions were so dirty that we didn't use them. The floors were dirty (both the carpet and the peel n stick floors that look like tile in the pictures). Interestingly enough, I just read a review from July where guests pretty much stated exactly what I am saying. There was a response that said these issues were taken care of. Clearly, they have not. The location was great and it allowed us to do what we had planned. I cannot recommend this house in its current state of cleanliness and disrepair.

Ok stay

  • 2 of 5

Our stay was ok. The cabin is seriously due for a deep cleaning. The floors were dirty. The dresser drawers were dirty and we didn't unpack because I didn't want our clean clothes in dirty drawers. There was layers of dust on all of the blinds and light fixtures. There were missing and broken blinds all over the house. The kitchen was overrun by ants. We bought ant spray which still didn't help. The washing machine broke. I wouldn't recommend more than four people sleeping here. One room has a fold up bed, but it was flimsy and dirty. That room smelled and was full of dead bugs. The owners did respond quitting questions, and the location on the river was great. Those were the only two pluses. No tv in secondary room as shown in photos and basketball hoop is broken and not up. Keep looking for another place to stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Kelly. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about the issues that arose during your trip. We take feedback from our guests very seriously, and have notified the homeowner. Regarding the cleaning, the cleaner has been notified and will ensure everything is double checked before and after a guest stays. They are professional and all cleaning issues have been addressed directly with them. Additionally you are correct about the blinds, and we are actually in the process of removing them completely and replacing with curtains. We appreciate the feedback on them and will expedite that process. In regards to the ants, we have an exterminator come every month to ensure there are as few as possible, but due to this notification, we are having him come again as soon as possible. We apologize about the washing machine, and have completely replaced it with a brand new one. I am sorry your stay fell short of expectations, and we really appreciate your feedback as it will only make future stays for guests more enjoyable. Best, Evolve Vacation Rental Network.

Nice, quiet getaway!

Nice little spot for a week long getaway. Brought our three small children and had a blast. They loved playing in the river. It was nice to have a ful sized kitchen, there were plenty of towels and bed linens.
