Sparrows nest

The view was beutiful,the hot tub was great,the privacy was wonderful it was a cozy little cabin and really enjoyed my stay the only down side was the shower had very light water,and the dishes I used had to be scrubbed clean because they were not cleaned by the last visitors. Other than that I had a great time

Beautiful Location

The Sparrow's Nest is a sweet little cabin with beautiful views and we enjoyed almost all of our time there. The purpose of our trip was to get away from our daily job routine, no alarm clocks, just relax and do whatever...however, the rooster right outside the bedroom window began crowing at 5:15 a.m. and would continue for 2 - 2 1/2 hours, which was very disappointing. We had no other choice than to go ahead and get up at the crack of dawn (or earlier), which we do that every day... but not what we planned to do on our vacation. Please understand that I am not complaining about the cabin, it was perfect, but had I known about the rooster, I would have sought out a different property. Working with Debbie and Smoky Mountain Falls was an absolute pleasure...very professional and accommodating.

Perfect Getaway!

Sparrows Nest was more then we could have hoped for. It was a clean and cozy cabin with a spectacular view. The hot tub on the back porch facing the view was a wonderful bonus. It was nice to get away from reality for a few days and relax here!
