Overview / Comments

Loss Creek Cove is an amazing private getaway near Reliance, TN. This one of kind property offers a beautiful log cabin home, a barn, a streamside picnic pavilion, and a caretaker's cabin, set on 164 acres surrounded by the Cherokee National Forest.

The main house, a 2,110 SF +/- log cabin, features a large two story great room with expansive windows and a wood burning stove. The master bedroom suite is on the main floor. Two guest bedrooms and a large bunkroom, connected by a shared bathroom, are located upstairs. An efficient kitchen and laundry room provide all the amenities necessary for comfort in the backcountry. There is both a large deck and a screened porch. The cabin sits on top of a peak above 1,400 feet and offers unobstructed panoramic views of the surrounding mountains in Georgia and North Carolina. With the lights of the cabin off at night and no other artificial light for miles, the brilliance of the clear night’s sky is breathtaking.

Double-track trails connect the main house to the two meadows, one of which contains an orchard, a barn, a streamside picnic pavilion, and a caretaker's cabin, which provides additional room for guests or serves as a comfortable place to rest and picnic. The large barn provides ample floor and loft storage for all necessary agricultural tools and recreational toys.

The waters of Loss Creek meander through the cove, across the property, and in and out of the adjacent National Forest land on their way to the Hiwassee River another 400 feet below the property and about 2 miles downstream, where Loss Creek passes under a footbridge for the Benton McKaye Trail.

The property is not connected to the electrical grid, but rather is powered by a large propane generator. However, with advances in solar technology, it is feasible to install a system sufficient to power the property if that is preferable.

Loss Creek Cove’s primary well that serves the main house is 540 feet deep with an electric pump, 100 gallon storage tank. The well can deliver approximately 6 gallons per minute. A water softener unit with replaceable cartridges for this well that makes the water even better. The caretaker’s cabin has a 120 foot deep well that currently has a manual pump, which could easily be changed to an electric pump. The creek running through the property has water flowing year-round and could provide a source of additional irrigation water or to power a hydro-electric generator.

This amazing property has had only 5 owners since coming under the jurisdiction of the State of Tennessee in 1833 as a part of the last land added to the state, the Ocoee Survey District.

Located in Polk County in southeast Tennessee, Loss Creek Cove offers 164 acres of seclusion for hunting, hiking, shooting, four-wheeling, orchard farming, relaxing, star gazing, entertaining, or any combination. Loss Creek Cove is home to deer, turkey, wild boar, bobcat, coyote, fox, bear, and more. Loss Creek Cove exudes the serenity, solitude, and history of the Cherokee National Forest surrounding it, all on private land. At every turn there is a quiet corner calling for you to sit and relax and enjoy the beauty the property has to offer in all seasons.
