|Description: Moonshine Ridge ...a Newly Remodeled Vacation home based on the homeplace of the Cove's notorious Moonshiner and yes, Great Grandpa, Jake Garland. This 2 Bed 1.5 Bath home sits on 12.2 acres just over the Ridge from the National Park and within walking distance to several of the area's best Trailheads including Ace Gap, Rich Mountain, Cerulean Knob Loop.
The home puts a modern twist on what was a very basic cabin of the late 1800 and early 1900's in the Bearded Cane area of Cades Cove. The original cabin without electricity, plumbing, or a kitchen would not create a very welcoming Vacation. Instead, this renovated home features a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The island connects to the dining table to create seating for 5. While the living room which had a fireplace as the main feature, it now includes a 55" Smart Television. For entertainment the Garland kids often played with homemade toys and games. Today's Guests get a pool table and foosball for their enjoyment. We did add a second bedroom, because, let's face it, no one wants the kids in their room, and the Garlands had 11. The Bedroom features a Queen adjustable bed and an electric fireplace with its own 42" Smart TV. The Primary Bedroom also includes a Queen adjustable bed and an electric Fireplace with 42" Smart TV, but adds an ensuite bath with double vanity and wet room including a claw foot tub and shower. Just as Mamaw used to talk about -- we included a sleeping loft for those extra kids to bring our total sleeping capacity to 6. In addition and definitely a modern convenience, we added a half bath and laundry area. No need to go outside or to the creek. On the outside, you can sit and relax on the front porch, enjoy the Hot Tub or roast s'mores in your private Fire Pit. We invite you to come, stay, and live the story of Mamaw Nancy's childhood home and life in the Cove in the early 1900s. Enjoy FREE access to the swimming pool and fitness center located at the Wild Laurel Golf Course, about seven minutes this property.
Please note this property has a gravel driveway that has an incline in areas. While a 4 Wheel Drive is not required, it is helpful. We do not recommend motorcycles, trailers, or vehicles that sit low to the ground.
