Eco-Friendly Notes

Our low-impact cabins are tucked away within the trees overlooking the Clinch River. During summertime, they are not even visible from the road. We value the environment and scenery of the area and therefore did not clear the side of a mountain for our cabins but worked within the existing landscape instead.
