Take in the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains from Closer to Home, a 4-bedroom, 4-bath retreat with green-canopy views overlooking more than 40 acres of native trees, and a feeling of total seclusion just 10 minutes from restaurants, museums and family-friendly activities.

The beauty of a vacation in the Smokies can only be enhanced by its remote location and solitude! Therefore, please be advised that the WIFI in this area is unstable.
