Tranquility Ridge is PEACEFUL PERFECTION. 10 acres of wooded property. Hiking, zip lining, kayaking, mountain biking, canoeing, gem mining, horseback riding nearby, porch swing, etc. EASY/SAFE access safe for your car, i.e. good roads! Full refund if you have to cancel and we are able to re book. Must be 21 or older. Host live onsite, tho you’ll rarely see us other than a brief hello. We strive to be transparent to avoid confusion and surprise, and we appreciate the same from our guests.

The space
It's all heart-of-pine wood rustic interior interior produces a "natural" atmosphere that blends well with the surrounding Smoky Mountain rural community . Open, efficiency type cabin. Private full bath, washer & dryer, 2 double beds & a sleeper sofa will sleep up to 6 adults, but best for no more than 4. A/C, W 2 W carpeting. Front and back porches. New pillow top mattresses. Built in 1951. VERY CLEAN. Picnic table & fire-ring for roasting marshmallows. Very sealed/tight/bug/varmint proof interior. Exactly as described...tranquil. Note: Tranquility Ridge is IN the landscape picture. This is not the view FROM the cabin. In the summer there is an obscured, but peaceful/beautiful view from the cabin. Kindly let us know if there is anything we may do to make your stay with us special.

Guest access
You'll have this little guest cabin all to yourself, complete w/WELL STOCKED kitchen and full bath. All one level, one step to get inside. The entire 10 acres is yours to roam if you please. Nothing like a hotel experience. Guest will need to coordinate a check-in time at least 24 hrs prior to arrival.

Other things to note
We no longer accept pets after discovering that per AirBnB policy, a pet could be ANY pet, including a pig. When we did accept a dog this is what we had under "Other Things to Note": Pets: We’ve come up with this protocol to be sure everyone is on the same page prior to booking w/a dog. Must be house trained & pre-approved prior to making a booking request. It can be challenging for a host to accept/not accept a dog. Please give us an INQUIRY vs a booking when asking to bring a pet & give us the following info (basically introduce your potential host to the dog you would like to bring): Breed/weight/age/temperament (dog & people friendly), house broken?
Ok with bringing sheets or whatever to cover our furniture if your dog is accustom to getting on furniture (this request is in respect for next guest that may have severe dog-dander allergy)? Ok w/keeping your dog on lead at all times when outside (we've got free roaming chickens)? Ok with dog being crated or taken w/you when you leave or left inside our spacious dog kennel? Ok w/the pet fee of $50 being added once you book? Ok w/posting a picture of your dog's head on your AirBnB profile or any other way sending us a photo? Again, if you are asking to bring a dog, pls communicate via INQUIRY to us prior to making an actual reservation request . No cats. Anyone bringing an undeclared pet or person will have their reservation cancelled without refund. A service animal is a dog that is individually trained to do work or perform a task for a person with a disability. Regarding bringing a "Service" animal, according to law, we will require you to declare if the animal is required because of a disability, and what work or task the animal has been trained to perform. Note: If you show up with an undeclared dog/pet, you will be asked to leave immediately, no refund issued. Fraudulent "service" animals will be reported.
Regarding children: Any age is fine, but please disclose them in your request to reserve. First three minors with their parents are free.
Outside security cameras may not be touched.
For $50 a night, you leave it guest ready, like you found it.

Introducing yourself to your host: You relied heavily on our profile information. Host do as well to insure the property is a good fit for both parties. As indicated, we require at least one profile photo that shows your face. This is helpful so hosts know who to welcome into their home. A description of at least 50 words highlighting why you decided to join the Airbnb community, your interests or hobbies, or anything else you think a potential host would want to know on your public profile. If after your reservation goes through, we do not see your face in a photo, per AirBnB policy, host will promptly cancel the reservation.

Board games, puzzles, movies and books provided. If you are looking for a Digital Detox location, this is perfect for you. The cabin does have WiFi, but that doesn't mean you have to connect. Feel free to leave our home phone # as an emergency # for you, and totally unplug while you are at Tranquility Ridge. Very popular with writers who seek solitude, chef's who enjoy cooking, and organic living. There is a lg screen but no TV signal.

Location

Otto, North Carolina, United States

With the area`s temperate climate and beauty, this home can be enjoyed throughout the year. Springtime brings the blooming of the dogwood and red bud trees as well as the azaleas, rhododendron, and mountain laurel. Summer brings lush greenery and the autumn colors are extraordinary. Winters are mild and, with less tree obstruction, views are incredible. Tranquility Ridge is peaceful perfection! Shop the many unique shops downtown Franklin (20 min away) and quaint gourmet restaurants & bistros. We're in a quite, rural/residential area. The cabin faces west toward the Appalachian Trail. The last 1/3 of a mile you'll be on a state maintained, level, gravel road. 4 Wheel drive is NOT required/needed. We've had guests that have arrived on motorcycles and they tell us we are easily accessible by motorcycle.

During your stay
You are booking your vacation. You've worked long and hard for it, and we honor that. Every day is precious, and should be a memory-maker. Our biggest priority is that when your day of hiking, etc is thru, you have a GREAT place in the woods to come back to, that is cozy, clean & relaxing. We stock Tranquility Ridge such that you do not have anything to bring except your clothes and food. Our Guest Cabin is located ~ 400' from the main house. We respect your privacy; typically we do not interact w/our guests other than the initial greeting and just give them their space. Please consider us your Concierge of things to do, trails to hike, mining, dining, music, etc. and are available to answer your questions. We have a very good base knowledge of the area. This is not an investment property, it is someone's beloved home, lovingly cared for over many years with a lot of real wood and fabric surfaces. Our guests love the cottage for its authentic homeyness and charm.
