You’ll fall in love with Tom’s Stand, a luxurious log house on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This storybook cabin is perfect in every nook and magical detail.
Hike straight up behind the house to the top of Hemphill Bald, which provides magnificent 50-mile views of the mountains. Open the heavy oak door of the main house and enter the warm kitchen, with its high-beamed ceiling, whimsical touches and hand-crafted cherry countertops. Feel the dramatic contrast as you walk from the stone fireplace in the charming dining room, up the steps to the grand expanse of the living room, with its cathedral ceiling and arched glass wall. Stay in the spacious master bedroom, where you’ll find hand-hewn beams and a wall of windows facing the morning sun.
There’s also plenty of room for friends and family, with four additional bedrooms tucked into cozy corners.
Guests can also enjoy horseback riding, a pool and discounted meals at the adjacent Cataloochee Ranch.
This is the home of the author of The View from Tom’s Stand. With its gardens, spacious lawn and mountain views, Tom’s Stand is an idyllic spot for weddings and retreats. For an additional fee, the home and yard are available for weddings.
