solitude in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Located in a

forests, an old mountaineer homestead, and expansive views from a
mountain top ridge.
For its remoteness, The House in Hemlock Grove is surprisingly close
to many attractions. Bring your jet-skis or boat and enjoy Tellico
and Chilhowee Lakes. Boat ramps are just a few miles away. Abundant
