Just doesn’t get any better than Take A Paws!
Third stay at Take A Paws and planning the forth. Joe, the owner maintains excellent communication via text, making sure we had everything we needed and were enjoying his beautiful, comfortable home. Views are the best on Block Rock Mountain and our fur babies always enjoy the large fenced yard. Thank you for another memorable vacation.

Outstanding Property and Hosts
This was our first stay at this amazing property, but it won't be our last. Let me start by saying - the pictures do not do this place justice. The views are spectacular. The cabin and surrounding grounds are very nicely done. We are sticklers for cleanliness, and this is one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed. The recliners in the living room have been updated and are very comfortable. The screened porch and deck are very expansive and relaxing, and did I mention the views? Roads are paved all the way except for the last couple of turns, which were on gravel roads, but only for a short distance. It is an easy ten-minute drive to get into town and to the many restaurants and shops in the area. In addition, there is plenty of room to park several vehicles and to turn around by the house, which is unusual for these types of properties. The covered parking between the house and the guest house is very convenient for loading and unloading in inclement weather. All the bedrooms are large. The bed in the master bedroom is firm but comfortable. The master closet is huge, with plenty of hangars available for use. The library off the master bedroom is a great place to sit and read. The kitchen is large and well-equipped. The fenced yard allowed our Yorkie room to roam without having to be on a leash. The house is well-built and well-insulated. Usually when we stay in cabins we can hear the wind whistling and the cabin creaking, but even though it was very windy the one day, everything remained quiet in the house. And did I mention the views? The cabin is oriented more north-south, so you do not get sunrise or sunset views, but this north-south orientation allows you to have shaded seating on the deck at all times of the day - perfect for those warm summer days. We enjoyed the multi-layered mountain views, which are accentuated in the early morning sun, and the classic early morning low-cloud Smoky Mountain views. Joe was very attentive - checking in several times via text to make sure everything was great with our stay. In short, we loved our time at this fabulous property, and we can't wait to come back.

Wonderful property
This is our third stay at Take a Paws and have at least one more planned. It is a lovely spot with excellent views and such a large fenced area for our dogs. Joe is a great owner who cares.
