Feeling romantic? Or simply want to relax and enjoy the tranquility and natural surprises of the ancient Smoky Mountains? The new Buffalo Creek Bridge Cottage is the place for you.

The rustic, cedar-sided Bridge Cottage is tucked under the trees at 2,600 feet elevation on our private 40-acre mountain ridge.

An elfin stream runs by it, warbling merrily as it falls into a crystal pool and flows under an arched stone footbridge.

From the bridge–or comfortably seated on the cottage’s porch–enjoy a seasonal sampling of native wild flowers in bloom. Rhododendron and our special patch of rare Pink Lady Slippers are among the many delights.

Relax on a brook side bench under flowering window boxes, immersed in the beauty and tranquility of a woodland wonderland.

Casually charming, the cottage’s interior features tongue-in-groove cedar walls and ceiling, rough-cut cedar beams, and hickory hardwood flooring throughout.

The living room area includes a small but fully-equipped kitchen with eating area and HD satellite TV to keep you up-to-date on the outside world. Eat, write, or use the free high-speed Internet connection in the broad passageway to the bedroom/sitting room.

This cottage is the most intimate environment of all our accommodations. English country-cottage style decor, luxurious bed with pillow-top Beauty Rest mattress, bench at foot of the bed facing a stone wood-burning fireplace, comfy reading corner, huge walk-in closet. For an encore? A spacious walk-in tiled shower-steam room with wall seating. Plush towels too!
