The space
Ridge Runners’ Retreat, 1299 Sprouse Lane, Newport, TN, is a rural one-room cabin located on six acres in the Smokey Mountains outside of Newport, Tennessee in famous Cock County not too far from major tourist attractions like Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, hiking trails, rafting on the Pigeon River, craft fairs, and more. There are mountain views on three sides of the property.

Guest access
You can sit on the front porch and view lovely pastures, mountains, and woods. The back deck has a hot tub for four. Local TV channels with news and children’s programs are available or bring your own DVDs and play them in our DVD player. The area has good cell phone reception. Internet is only available if you have your own reception plan. We use AT&T and receive internet just fine. The bathroom has a full, walk-in corner shower. Our small kitchen has an electric stove/oven and office-size refrigerator. Kitchen sink looks out a view window. A propane fire place lights easily for extra warmth in winter. A sturdy full size antique cast iron bed and queen size sofa sleeper will accommodate a family of four or five. Downtown Newport has many restaurants and there is a great Russian restaurant on the river.

Other things to note
Pets OK upon approval. We do not charge a pet fee; however do expect guest to be responsible for any damages caused by their pet(s). Pets are to be kenneled whenever left behind and we expect owners to bring extra blankets to cover the couch and the bed. There is no weight limit. We do allow a couple of dogs. We prefer no cats due to so many folks' allergies. Other restrictions: no pets in the hot tub, if dogs dig holes, please fill them in, if dogs are shedding please bring extra sheets to cover the couch and bed, pets cannot be left unattended at any time and must be kenneled if left while owners are away from the cabin. Other than that, we consider dogs to be part of the family and hope the whole family will enjoy their stay at Ridge Runners' Retreat!

Even with the animals and bugs, there is also tremendous beauty. Winters are quiet and cozy with a propane fireplace and the views are even clearer. The spring and summer are very lovely and the fall colors breathtaking! And there are some animals you want to see: we've had deer in the yard and wild turkeys ranging through. Our dogs love it! It's nature! Enjoy!

Sweet rural atmosphere. Old time barns along road. Country homes, pastures and hills. A wonderful old oak tree in the driveway turnaround. Quaint one-room cabin. Remember you're in the mountains, so when the weather's warm bring your bug repellant. You might see wildlife also! We've seen deer right out front! Refreshing get away!

I am a retired English and Art high school teacher who is also an author and artist, from which one never retires, and no, I'm not famous--yet! After living 40 years in Alaska and then moving south to take care of my mother, Airbnb provides a wonderful way for me to manage her vacation cabin for her, "Ridge Runners' Retreat." The cabin represents a typical, simple Alaskan lifestyle but located nearby in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee.
