Hidden Falls

About The Space

Designed specifically for couples, escape to the new luxury community of Elk Hollow, nestled in the mountains just minutes from Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Our ideal location is between two quiet subdivisions and a horse pasture.

Here, instead of the hustle and bustle of crowds, you’ll be treated to the songs of birds, the soothing sounds of the nearby creek, and the chorus of frogs. Keep your eyes peeled for wild turkeys, deer, and even the occasional bear or elk, who occasionally wander outside the park’s borders.

Living Room

With upscale rustic furnishings and polished concrete floor, you and your sweetheart will love this romantic getaway in the scenic western North Carolina mountains. The attention to detail is evident in all the thoughtful touches found throughout the yurt.

Designed for simplicity, you’ll find everything you need in one spacious area. The deep, plush sofa feels wonderful after a day out exploring the surrounding areas, while the built-in chaise lounge is a luxurious extra.

On a cozy evening in, be sure to take advantage of the wall-mounted TV with DirecTV and Wi-Fi to catch up on your favorite show or enjoy a movie night.

Kitchen & Dining 

Create the simplest of snacks or the most elaborate of meals in this fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counters. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how roomy this space is and how easy it is to prepare all your favorites. We’ve also stocked the pantry with all your basic needs.

An intimate table for two allows you to enjoy the beautiful scenery as well as the company of your loved one.

Bed & Bath 

Set off to the side of the space for privacy is the bedroom area, complete with a luxury king-size bed, with dual nightstands and lamps, perfect for the late-night reader.

A stylish freestanding tub sits in the corner to soak tired muscles after a day out in nature.

The full bath features a walk-in shower.

For our guests’ convenience, we also provide a full-size washer and dryer.

Outdoor Sitting and Patio Areas

An oversized porch facing the woods will certainly become your favorite spot for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. It’s also the perfect vantage point to watch for furry or feathered visitors!

Be sure to take advantage of the gas grill and enjoy a meal al fresco at the nearby picnic table.

A firepit will tempt you into roasting marshmallows or making s’mores as you enjoy the cool mountain air.

Perhaps best of all is the hot tub, strategically placed to offer the most privacy. Nothing feels better than sinking into those warm bubbles and feeling the last of your cares melt away.
