two dogs, two cats, near the Smoky Mountains for almost a week in September
Ross and a chainsaw carver and I paint barn quilts and I'm a travel agent. We don't usually go away at the same time, but need to attend a wedding out of state.
Our Home & Location
We live in a wooded area in a small ranch, cabin style home in the country, but are only about 20 minutes from downtown Knoxville. We have several shopping centers in three different directions all about 10 minutes away. You will have access to our living room, kitchen, your bedroom with a queen bed, and extra small bedroom with a day bed if you need it, and of course your bathroom. We have a large front porch, and are within walking distance of a local beach. The ride to the Smoky Mountains is about 40 minutes. As we are also AirBNB hosts, we are used to having guests, so if you want to arrive a day early or stay an extra night (at no charge), we'd be happy to accommodate you. We are actually in the town of Powell (two miles from the Knox County Line) and midway between Clinton and Oak Ridge. Please contact me if you want to know more.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have two dogs (both 11 years old, black lab mixes) very friendly. They need to be fed in the morning and again 4-5pm. They stay in the yard and like to be around people. You are welcome to do sightseeing and run errands, but I don't ever like to be gone more than about 4 hours at a time...to let them out. We have two cats which you just have to leave food out for them, and they can go indoors and outdoors. We also have several rabbits, but you don't have to do anything with them. We have a partner in who lives down the street and comes over to feed them twice a day. She will also be available if you need help with either of the dogs or cats.
