Our hillside cottage is going to impress you inside and out. Guests comment on how immaculate and comfortable our lake cottage is and that our beautiful pictures don't do it justice. The drive down the long, hilly road is filled with for deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, etc! Since the road dead ends at our property, our guests enjoy privacy in a serene setting with 230 feet of waterfront on Lake Cherokee, a 30,000 acre man-made lake. Be prepared to kick back and enjoy the sights...amazing sunrises and sunsets, birds of all types including Canadian geese, Great Blue Heron, egrets, American Bald Eagle, mockingbirds, and many more.

Inside is a living-dining room, flat screen TV, and a fully equipped kitchen: Coffee maker, cooking utensils, dishes and utensils, dishwasher, microwave, stove/oven, refrigerator and partially furnished pantry. And our sun room has quite the view!

Vacationing during cooler months? Stay warm by gathering around the outdoor fire pit, or the wood burning stove inside.

Sleeping arrangement: A bedroom (with queen) and half-bath are located upstairs. Daybed in sunroom sleeps one.

Unique Features

The 600 sq. ft. cottage is located in a beautiful cove where you can bait a hook and do some fishing for catfish or bass from your private floating dock. There are so many lake and Cumberland Mountain views from the multiple decks - a great place for a romantic dinner. On our decks are a gas grill, fire pit, comfortable seating, and a dining table and chairs. If you forget an item or two, there is a grocery store (and a super Walmart) 10 minutes away.

Things To Do

Grab the 2 complimentary kayaks, the canoe, or floats and get out there! Take a beach towel (provided) and your sunscreen so you can swim or lounge on the dock. And you can always choose to relax on the lakefront deck and enjoy reading or watching for eagles
(we supply the binoculars). Be sure to bring your camera!

No fear of heights? Our Cottage on Cherokee is only 30 minutes from the Foxfire Mountain zip line adventure and the Smoky Mountains! Grab your coffee and take a memorable drive to Dandridge (second oldest town in Tennessee), Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg - do some downtown walking and shopping. This is the the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains!

LOCAL’S TIP: If you decide to head West to Knoxville make sure you visit the entertainment district, the "Market Square" area. There are several nearby golf courses too.

We swam off the dock, paddled all over and completely enjoyed our time there. The highlight, though, was watching a bald eagle fishing in the water below us and soaring by at eye level! The breeze from the lake kept us cool in upper 80° weather and we had no issues with mosquitoes. We parked the car when we arrived and didn't get in it again until it was time to leave!
The owners did a fantastic job of anticipating anything we might need or want and having it at the ready (umbrellas, binoculars, books, etc.). Although small, the cottage is arranged beautifully and is very comfortable. We were especially impressed with the craftsmanship and quality construction. Bonnie J
After two amazing stays, we couldn't wait to visit "our place" for a third time. My boyfriend was so inspired by the positive energy of Piccolo Nido, he chose it as the perfect spot to propose. As the sun set in a sky of violet and peach-colored clouds, my answer was YES. Michele B
