Being in the Smoky Mountains, I am close to the amazing views of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. My location is close to Dollywood, Splash Country (about 7.5 miles), as well as The Island (about 10 miles), all of which you can reach without ever having to drive on the Parkway!
I live in a subdivision with fairly level roads, so no need to worry about the mountain drop offs, or steep hills.
I do have a drive way with plenty of parking for an extra vehicle.
Everyone will have access to the kitchen/dining area, and to the living room.
I do live here, but I do things outside the house as well, so I do not hover.
I do have a dog who is very friendly, but will stay out of the main portion of the house, unless going outside.
