About Thomas Bobic; Joellyn Smith

We are traveling Physical Therapists and have been to several states over the past years and made Mountain City our home when we were on assignment here. We love our jobs and the ability to see this great country, but it is always wonderful to come back to our log home in the peaceful mountains of Tennessee.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the natural light in the great room provided by cathedral ceilings and many windows. Sit by a crackling fire while you enjoy a good book and a glass of wine. Enjoy the sunshine on the wrap-around deck. Fall asleep to the sound of whippoorwills.

A wonderful wooded oasis!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this wonderful property and once again have totally enjoyed our stay! We had three couples staying and all agree that we want to continue staying here each year. It is a wonderful property - indoors and outdoors. From the quiet woodland setting and landscaping, to the beautiful house and deck surrounding it, to the clean, fresh, and beautifully furnished interior. We enjoyed the open concept (kitchen, dining room, living room) where we socialized as couples yet had the privacy of the three individual bedrooms, plus the loft area overlooking the living room area. It was super clean and fresh, and furnished with comfortable beds and linens as well as kitchen items and laundry too. It was nice to be able to park our cars in the large garage. When you are there it appears secluded yet it is not, just a short drive to town and grocery stores, as well as surrounding areas of interest to visit. We so appreciate the owners sharing their wonderful woodland oasis! A special thanks to the property manager, Cecil, for making sure all was well and that our stay was an enjoyable one! We look forward to staying again in 2017!

Easter stay in a Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family which included 2 kids and 2 dogs stayed for a very cozy extended Easter weekend. The cabin was perfect for us. Everyone enjoyed the relaxing deck where we spent most of our time while at the cabin and the dogs loved they had a fenced-in roaming area. We enjoyed the large very clean garage we could safely leave the dogs in if we were out. We took the kids to the Creeper Trail for 17 miles of biking which was lovely (and only a short drive away) and all of us went hiking along the Gentry creek trail - we are not sure if the kids or dogs enjoyed the water crossings more. The house was so cozy and was fully stocked for cooking. The beds were comfortable and there was more than ample space for us. The kids had a fantastic time claiming the loft as their own area - no adults allowed. It was quiet and we loved the location for outdoor adventures. We were not looking to do anything more than relax, bike and hike and this delivered.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolute treasure tucked away in a place that's accessible to many of the top attractions in the TN-VA-NC tri-state area. We made easy trips to the Virginia Creeper and Tweetsi Bike trails, Bristol Speedway, and Blowing Rock, NC. But if you just want to stay in what a great place to relax. The monstrous deck offers great early morning serenity and the great room has ample room for game play or satellite TV. NO ESPN though so bring your chromecast or HDMI connector in football season. Good Wifi.

Ideal for three couples, but a couple of futons makes sleeping eight easy.

Plenty of parking and a huge basement garage to securely store bikes or other equipment.

Very comfortable, peaceful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 was very pleased with the three-bedroom, three-bathroom mountain home. The home was roomy and met all our expectations.

Beautiful house, beautiful mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our weeks vacation in the mountains and this log home was the perfect place to stay. It was fully equipped with everything we needed and ample space for the five of us. The jetted tub was so delightful after a day of hiking. Surrounded by trees that gave us the opportunity to watch birds and in the evening we were entertained by the flying squirrels. Even though this house is in a residential area it feels quite secluded with all of the trees on the property. This was one of the easiest vacations houses to reserve. No hassles and no hoops to jump through. We felt very relaxed there and thoroughly enjoyed our stay . I would definitely rent this house again if opportunity arises.

We totally enjoyed staying in this location as we were attending a family reunion in Mountain City. There were 5 of our family staying and we had room to spare. Very well done!
