1 king bed - 1 bath with mountain view, fire pit, hot tub, country porch, grill.

Only 30 minutes from Chattanooga, this is the place to put the world aside and revisit the two of you. You're sure to leave with renewed love and new memories gained by exploring this almost 100 year old country home and surrounding area. When you're talking 100 years, there has to be some history. Learn of the original builders' lives and visit Chief McLemore's grave marker which is on the property. The area is known as Tricum and McLemore's Cove - discover why. Enjoy the hot tub, and you've never seen stars like these. An itinerary of little known things to do nearby is provided. Relax on the mountain view deck or hear the creek ripple from the long country porch and enjoy the morning sunshine. Romance is in the air.





I (Colleen) am a writer, business owner, and hold a Masters in Marriage and Family Counseling, and this country home served me well. We moved here from Pennsylvania in 2000, raised three kids, and I ran my business and continued to write. We knew it would be a labor of love, but the mountain view and a cool serenity in the air which we felt at none of our other choices sold me on this place. (Yes, my husband let me make the choice). I always considered it my "piece of paradise" and my peaceful abode. But I'm the only one who didn't mind the daily long drive to civilization (a throw-back to my childhood), so we moved closer to Chattanooga, and now the house in the Cove is ALL MINE. I'm so excited to share it with you, and truly hope and pray you, as a couple, renew your relationship and have fun doing so while here!
