Overview

About the property

Enjoy my cozy, comfortable condo while exploring the Smokey Mountain!

Mountain Condo at the top of the Smokies!

2nd Condo available soon.

Enjoy the Smokey Mountains at it best in my English Mountain Resort Condo located on top of English Mountain. The English Mountain Resort is one of the Smokey Mountain's hidden surprises. It is located above the Forbidden Caverns which are located under the Smokies. My place will sleep 4 to 5. It has a queen size bed in the master bedroom, a queen sofa sleeper in the living room, and a matching sofa that can be used as a twin bed. The villa has a stone, fireplace with gas logs, full kitchen with dishwasher, cookware, etc. You will love setting or swinging on the wrap around deck. while enjoying the mountain air. From the deck you can almost touch the clouds. I love seeing the moon over the treetops and the sun rising over the top of the Mountains. Even though you will enjoy the remoteness of the condo, the chalet has internet service, phone, and cable TV. Cable is in the bedroom and the living room. The chalet is street level so you can walk straight from the parking lot into the condo. This is perfect for us older travelers. There are not any steps to climb. The condo is an end unit and has the wrap around deck. The English Mountain Resort has a pool and sauna.

Several years ago, English Mountain was the home of a prestigious Medical Facility that used the wonderful, mineral springs located just a short distance from the English Mountain Resort to treat their patients. The Doctor that owned the facility claimed the minerals found in the springs were healing for numerous medical conditions that many people suffered from. His patients must have agreed because people would come from all over the Country to English Mountain so that they could soak their bodies in the minerals spring water for health purpose. He had a hotel built so that they could stay on English Mountain for their mineral treatments and enjoy the peace, serenity and solitude of beautiful English Mountain. I don't know if it was the wonderful mineral water or the peaceful English Mountain but people came for years for the healing powers found here. It was popular until the hotel burnt down several years ago and the Doctor chose to retired. This condo has the mineral water. I have always told my guests to turn the water on in the bathtub when they come in and let it run while they unpack their vehicle so that there wouldn't be a smell of the minerals because you can sometimes smell the minerals that are found in the water. If you would like to try the therapy of the mineral water, do not do this and If you happen to get a whiff of a chemical when you are bathing just know that there is not an extra charge and not only are you getting a great bath but it could actually make you feel better. lol

You experience your own beautiful views of the mountains and valleys on the 7 mile drive around and up English Mountain. It is located about 5 miles from Forbidden Caverns. Blowing Cave Road will change into Alpine Drive, but you do not leave the highway until you reach Cove Road and the English Mountain Resort will be located on the left about 150 yards.

If you are seeking peace, seclusion and relaxation this is the perfect place. If you want peace, seclusion, relaxation and enjoy restaurants, shows, sight seeing, etc., this is the perfect place because it is a beautiful drive to anywhere you would want to go. The drive down English Mountain gives you an awesome view of the Mountains, you can see Douglas Lake in the distance, you will pass Blowing Cave Church which is a quaint, charming country church. Forbidden Caverns is a "must see"!. When you leave the caverns, you can catch your own trout at the Trout Restaurant and they will cook it for you. Before you leave Blowing Cave Road, you will see a historical mill that will soon be in operation. If you turn to the right on 411, it will take you to the Bush Bean Restaurant and Museum. If you turn left it will take you on a scenic drive to Sevierville. If you turn left when leaving Cove Road, there are backroads to Carvers Applefarm Restaurant, Gatlinburg, etc., that keeps you away from the tourist traffic.

My husband and I love to take different routes and find the treasures of the Smokies. EXPERIENCE the Smokey Mountains! STAY IN THE MOUNTAINS!!

About Shelby Kilpatrick

I actually traded a condo on Daytona Beach for the peace and tranquility of the Smokey Mountains. My husband and two sons love nature, with the hunting and fishing. They did not hesitate with their opinion of where they had preferred to enjoy their vacations. After our children were grown, my husband and I invested in a few vacation properties.The English Mountain property is my husband's favorite place to be! We both think it soothes our nerves and gives us such a peaceful place to enjoy.

Shelby Kilpatrick purchased this condo in 2013

Why Shelby Kilpatrick chose Tennessee

We love the security of staying in a Resort, yet the experiences and enjoyment of living on English Mountain. We love the location and the different routes you can use to travel to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. We find every trip up and down the Mountain, an adventure with the different views and wild life. The highways are all paved and in good condition.

What makes this condo unique

Wr love relaxing on the balcony in our rockers or swings and just absorbing God's creation!

Very nice getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful place for relaxation and rest! It is away from the hustle of town and is quiet and remote. The place is very nicely decorated and was clean upon arrival. There is lots of items provided. It would be nice to stock the kitchen a little more for preparing meals such as measuring spoons and more large spatulas. Also, the tub doesn't drain at all. :( Netflix in the bedroom was a great bonus! The best part was the large balcony with the swing. The weather was nice and it was great to sit out and enjoy the wonderful views. We went into Gatlinburg and explored and also went to Bush Beans, The Apple Barn and the mill and covered bridge. Just a warning: closest Walmart is 45 mins away! Thanks for letting us stay and we would love to come again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our place on English Mountain. I appreciate you letting me know about the need for measuring spoons and new spatulas. After a guest stays a few days they are more aware of the needs of the condo more than housekeeping that is there for a short time. I am so glad that you'll enjoyed your stay and I hope that you return again soon. Terry and Shelby

Not Motorcycle Friendly

  • 2 of 5

There is a high speed bump at the entrance/exit to this condo complex. Unfortunately, Shelby did not tell us about this when we talked with her about renting her unit. We called Shelby after crashing our motorcycle on this speed bump the first time we tried to get out of the complex. THEN she told us about another one of her guests who crashed their bike on the speed bump and broke their gas tank open! Every time we had to go in and out of the condo complex, the speed bump scraped the motorcycle's radiator overflow tank. Also, there are NO level parking spots for building #7. Our motorcycle tipped over TWICE in the parking lot. It's a Honda Goldwing and very heavy. My husband hurt his arm, and I hurt my arm and back trying to lift it up three times in one day - once on the speed bump and twice in the parking lot. Not a very relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you JoAnn for the review. I have shared your review with the English Mountain Resort HOA. I was told that the Complex that shares Cove Road with our Resort was the one that had the speed bump installed and it serves a duel purpose of also deterring water from their drive. They said the facility that installed it would need to be contacted. I have emailed them and copied your review for them to read. I hope that will be enough to take care of lowering the bump, if not I will contact the Sevier County Commissioner. I will add to my guest's instructions a warning for motorcycle riders to slow down before approaching the drive the drive

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Main floor adequate space, with a kitchen with small dish washer, a washer and dryer, counter for preparing food and a higher counter for eating at. Also a small table for two. Plenty of dishes, pots and pans and flatware. TV in all rooms, internet and a house phone in case your cell phone doesn't work in the mountains. The unit we rented had a loft which I'd say is best suited for small children. A ladder like steps which were carpeted to prevent slips. A balcony on both sides of condo with chairs, table and a porch swing. Although our grandsons are 4 and 6 they enjoyed the pool but it does start at 5 ft in depth. I found the drive up the mountain pretty, but curvy in spots. If you're going in to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg I'd find something closer. We prefer a quiet, well equipped place just to relax and this would be it. Only con was the bath tub was slippery and they did not have a hair dryer and I forgot to bring mine. The owner was helpful and gave great directions to condo. We followed our GPS and it took us a different route but Shelby's is better if you're coming in from the west side of Knoxville. The uni was clean and everything worked.

Owner's Response: I am glad that I was able to give you VRBO 610684. It is a larger unit than #721. I will provide a blow dryer for my future guests. Thanks for letting me know there was no longer one in the unit. I enjoyed meeting your family and you. Your grandsons were such handsome, young boys! I am glad that you got to spend some quality time with your son and grandsons and they got to spend time with their grandparents. I hope that you visit again soon. Terry and Shelby
