Ideally located for outdoor recreation, you’ll find premier rafting, kayaking, and mountain biking directly at your fingertips. Rockhound Ridge Gem Mine, Peoples Golf, and Smoky Mountain River Adventures are all located within a 20-mile radius. Spend a day mining for beautiful gemstones, playing a leisurely round of golf in a picturesque something, or experiencing the thrill of whitewater rafting.

A well-appointed kitchen boasts modern appliances and plenty of storage space for effortless meal preparation. Gather for home-cooked meals at the spacious dining table and then break out the board games. Even better, challenge your family and friends to a pool tournament.
