Welcome

Tony and Linda Sexton invite you to their farm, Tender Mercy Retreat, to host your next party or enjoy a llama trek overlooking famous Cold Mountain in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Also available is a two bedroom, two bath vacation rental cottage which is both pet friendly and handicapped accessible. Pictures and rates for
the cottage can be found at www.vrbo.com listing #323793.

We have llamas, chickens, horses, dogs, cats, and a pond stocked with fish. The eggs from our hens are available for cooking, the fish in the pond for catch and release or dinner.

Schedule a gourmet lunch llama trek on the 36 acres, or just go for a hike with a llama on a lead.

Sit on the dock and listen to the birds, or frogs in the evening. Watch the fireflies at night and look for shooting stars. Take day trips to the Biltmore House, Carl Sandberg's home at Flat Rock, shop at the Pigeon Forge Outlet Stores, and visit Dollywood. Local theater productions and frequent festivals are fun things to do close by. We are minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and great hiking trails.  See link http://www.smokeymountains.net/
