ที่พัก

Private entrance off back deck with self check in is what many of our guests like. They feel this is less intrusive way to come and go with sense of autonomy.

I can help you get the most out of the secrets of Knoxville and the Smokies that most tourists don't see.

Enjoy your time away from home in this eclectic rancher painted in Mediterranean accents of bright yellow, tranquil turquoise and cobalt sea blue of this happy house! Sleep on a highly rated and reviewed new mattress in a room with antique bedroom furniture! The Casteel Branch house is located beside a creek called the Casteel Branch in the foothills of the Smokies.

Your guest room has a private keyed entrance from the deck. You will enjoy a new highly rated mattress (both in reviews and from our guests). The room is furnished with an antique bedroom suite with a full size bed. A closet is available to you as well as a vintage luggage stand. The full bath is adjacent to your room right outside the hallway. Please communicate any needs you may have in order for me to best accommodate you.

The house is full of art - originals, artists proofs, and prints - from Jim Gray, Mitchel Tolle, Marble City Glassworks, McKenzie Child's, Norman Rockwell, The License Plate man (Steve Russell), Vintage French travel posters from train stations, original art from friends and family. I love books, art and people!!! I have met some fantastic people through traveling Air BnB network! I hope to enhance this alternative and organic way of travel by welcoming you to our humble abode.

Private spaces: You have a private entrance with key to your room. It would be most convenient for you to park between the house and separate detached garage. You can access your room from deck (small stone steps and a small rise of wooden stairs to access. Sorry my house is not handicap accessible.). Enjoy the deck, basketball goal, creek, outdoor shower in warm months, front porch, and yard (just be aware crawdad holes are throughout yard). You can enjoy the parlor with plenty of comfortable couches, and chairs. Wi-fi available. And we have a grand piano and upright piano --- play them! You may walk through art studio and kitchen.

Downstairs is a private and separate apartment with occasional air bnb guests who have exclusive parking rights to the lower level concrete slab parking space and lower patio. The homeowner's master suite is on the same level as your guest room. An artist studio has been converted from dining room - so there is little room for dining. An artist usually works from the studio a few days a week and I work from home occasionally. Our kitchen is very small - there should be no meal preparation or cooking of any kind permitted. Though coffee and tea are available every morning in the kitchen. No laundry room available to guests. Please be respectful and understanding of others staying at our home - and enjoy your stay.

Contingent on my availability, you might want to add on a daybreak or sunset kayaking excursion on Fort Loudon Lake at the headwaters of the Tennessee River (flat water lake kayaking) - put in is 3 minutes from our home. There are bluffs where sightings of bald eagles are seen frequently and otter, turtles, and fish jumping out of water! Inquire about all sorts of great outdoor activities ~ check out my guidebook for guests on this app!

The place is very easy to find with maps. Although the location is little away from the Smokies, but you can additionally see places in Knoxville with 15min drive. The room and bathroom were super clean & wonderfully decorated with lots of artistic stuff. Has a sit out place with hanging lights, which gives it date night feel. Victoria was very helpful and suggested so many local sites and best time to visit them which made our trip easy. Overall a small and pleasant place for the price, with a wonderful host.

I loved Victoria's place! It was so cute and artsy! Check-in was super convenient with the lockbox on the door for easy entry. The bed here is AMAZING, I slept so well. Communication with Victoria was excellent and she answered quickly with any questions I had. I also loved the personal touches Victoria included in our stay, personalized notes and a gift basket which is super thoughtful!! I would definitely stay here again! Thanks for being an amazing host Victoria!

Received a hearty welcome and we were impressed by the place at first look. Got terrific suggestions for food and hikes near Smoky. We leave the place with smile and satisfaction. Would like to come back again and just lay back to enjoy the place. Great conversations and company from Sam and Victoria.

Victoria is a truly wonderful host, warm, welcoming and ready to go to huge lengths to get you anything you want. She served me lovely breakfasts and her home is superbly sited for exploring the Smokies, Appalachians and Knoxville. Her home is unique and very interesting-- I slept very well the two nights I was at her home!

Do not pass up the chance to stay at this lovely, lively, artsy home. Victoria and Sam are the most welcoming and sociable hosts! They went out of their way to make me feel at home. We spent hours chatting on the porch, and it felt just like catching up with old friends. The room was cozy and exactly what I needed, and Crystal the cat made an excellent greeter. ^^ I fully intend to return for another visit someday.

I love traveling, collecting books, taking pictures, listening to stories, meeting new people, and going on adventures!

I first became acquainted with Air BnB when I was invited to speak in Washington DC on communities and social media. I rented an apartment near Eastern Market and stayed a week with my teenage son and his best friend. I told them we were going to wear out two things that week ~ our metro passes and our tennis shoes. We did! Fabulous time!

I was hooked! I got to meet neighbors, get inside recommendations on the area, etc. I loved becoming immersed in the culture!

When I began treatments for my hearing loss - my boyfriend and I started booking Air Bnbs up and down the coast to and from Knoxville to Jacksonville Florida. We met the most interesting people, neighbors, and communities! We stayed in all kinds of homes, a castle, a yacht - and had a blast! It is a great way to travel on a shoestring budget! My Mayo Clinic doctor's and attendants were all checking out the app as they heard of our most excellent adventures on my path to recovery and restoration. With a prosthetic inner ear joint ~ I went from 75% hearing loss to 4% hearing loss! I am a bionic woman!

I decided to open our artsy eclectic home for travelers from all over the world. We worked hard at giving this 1960's rancher a touch of character and some TLC. Come and stay at the Casteel Branch House (named after creek beside our house) in the town where we call home. It is a great place!

I am a mother of 4 children whom I homeschooled for 10 years before placing in public school. They are now grown and on their own journeys. I am a former Knox County Commissioner (first of 10 women ever to serve in the capacity in the history of Knoxville, TN), Certified TN teacher K-12, 6 hours logged in my pilot log book, avid reader, fantastic networker, artist, writer, traveler, and Information Science Director at Agilaire/a scientific data management company. I have flown in a UH-1N Huey, fired a Tommy machine gun in the Knox County Sheriff's Citizen Academy, served on the Knox County Public Library Advisory Board, and won Volunteer of the Year Award in Blount County 4-H. My life was recently impacted and saved by The Artist Way workshop lead by my mentor Carole Ann Borges/ author of Dreamseeker's Daughter: A nautical memoir about an eccentric family living aboard an old schooner boat on the Mississippi River and Gulf Coast in the 1950s. I am deeply connected with the art community in Knoxville.

I have most enjoyed being an Air Bnb host where my guests bring a cosmopolitan flair to my East Tennessee home where I have lived since 2000. As an empty nester, I have enjoyed the constant flow of travelers that have shared their journey with me. Take a while here with the creative vibe, spend time by the babbling brook, sit by a bonfire, inquire about a therapeutic painting session in the art studio. Rest easy and recover... welcome to my yellow happy house! Stay a while - let us swap some tales. Enjoy your stay. And y'all come back sometime. Carpe Diem!
