Property description

We invite you to enjoy a unique vacation home. Make sure to visit our website link below to see even more about our place.

We just put new hardwood floors throughout in 2014! Check out our photos.

FYI- We now have WIFI, code is on the TV. Please make sure you 'checkin' on facebook when you stay with us.

One of our most COMMON question we have is... Are we hard to get to during bad weather? The answer is NO. We are on a level driveway and on a level lot, easy to get to. We are just right off the 321 Hwy. So if you don't have a four wheel drive you are just fine!

The cabin has a fishing theme with hand painted murals with all updated appliances. A great place to get away, or a cozy place to reunite. There is a wide mountain stream behind the cabin that beckons you to kick your shoes off, jump in, skip rocks, search for minnows and crawdads - just be a kid again.

Our place is located right on Dudley Creek! And we just added a 'water bench' to sit and put your feet in the cool mountain creek!

There is trolley service just a few hundred feet away from the cabin so you don't have to worry about parking or getting to any of the areas attractions. Two of Gatlinburg's finest restaurants are within a 1/2 mile; since you are only 1.3 miles from the center of Gatlinburg.

You can walk by sidewalk to all the shows, attractions, shopping, or eating establishments that Gatlinburg has to offer.

Solace with convenience. There is only one cabin to pass before you get to our cabin(you are not jammed up in a 'development'). Our property is situated next to a residence with a 6 acre tract. Behind your vacation home there is nothing between you and the creek but a level grassy yard.

A very peaceful place to be. Across the creek is nothing but mountains and wilderness to look at with no housing in sight.

Wildlife. So far we have seen families of ducks, deer, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, and lots of wild birds plus the creek is like your own personal outdoor aquarium.

To protect your experience we enforce a nonsmoking policy. We want our next customer's visit to be just as pleasant and special as yours.

For more information please call us or visit our website for more information.

    The Greenbriar Restaurant View on map

    This is a great place to eat! We celebrated my wife's 40th birthday here. It's just a short distance from the cabin and a popular spot for dinner. Attire is casual and the quaintness scale is off the charts. You will really enjoy.

  • B

    The Brick Oven View on map

    This is a good local pizza place. Our kids love to eat there. We walk from the cabin down there to eat.

  • C

    Food City View on map

    This is the only "supermarket" in Gatlinburg. It is walking distance from the cabin, about .5 mile just up the road. This is a great place to buy doughnuts, or corn to feed the deer and ducks with.

  • D

    Flapjacks View on map

    This is one of the great pancake houses in Gatlinburg. Again we walk there by sidewalks. It has a great log cabin interior and the staff is great.

    The pancake pantry View on map

    If you like quality food including GREAT crapes, this is the place for YOU. It is a multi times per year stopping spot that we walk to from the cabin. This is a little over a mile walk but worth it, and NO parking problems! Expect to stand in line but make sure you get a free cup of coffee while you wait. Still really worth it.

2 Miles
Nearest Ski
Gatlinburg Ski Resort

Of course our cabin is close to Gatlinburg Ski resort, Dollywood and many other attractions but we offer the creek at the back of our mowed area as the best spot to relax.

The incredible Rock Top Sports complex is now open and just a few miles away from our cabin. One of the area's most complete and well designed sports centers. This makes our cabin a great rental for sports tournaments and competitions.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are a family from Jefferson City, Tn. A nearby city just about 45 minutes from our cabin site. We bought this cabin with another couple from Strawberry Plains to enjoy with our families. You see my boys on our trip to Paris in this photo. We love to travel internationally and love to keep our base home here in East Tennessee. We hope you get to stay with us at our little place in the Smokey Mountains.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Stoplight 3:
In the Winter of 2007 we were contacted about this cabin in Gatlinburg by a realtor friend. He told us what a great deal this site was with real space for parking and actual ownership of a beautiful creek. The obvious question was what kind of shape was the home in. Well there again our friend tells us it has just been remodeled with new appliances paint and more! It seemed to good to be true. Let me tell you folks it was not! We three years later have updated the master bath to a large soaking tub and new tile. Other than that the photos you see on our site are the way the house was purchased. Decor: We added some attractive furniture as the walls had beautiful murals, and wonderful colors already present. My partners wife is very artsy and has much of her pottery and art on the walls. Something interesting to check out, in the screened porch look down and the creative designed vinyl rug. Flip it over at the corner, it's actually, a scrap piece of vinyl flooring that has been hand painted on the BACK to create a unique and gorgeous room rug. There are many more examples of custom art in the cabin. (check out the coffee table, we didn't buy it like that). We are basically are two families that live in the area that wanted a little get-a-way spot for our families. We decided to start renting the cabin through VRBO as a way to let the cabin earn it's keep. It is has been a great idea and a way for us to fill in the times we aren't using it. We don't want to wear the cabin out but simply choose families and seniors that will respect our property and enjoy the wildlife and privacy this great spot offers.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
What we do: When we go up to the cabin, even around Christmas, we walk with our kids down to breakfast at the Pancake Pantry, in downtown Gatlinburg. It is just about 1 mile and it has sidewalks all the way there. If you get tired and don't want to walk back, you can just catch the trolley. There is a trolley right across the street from the cabin! Another great place we go and eat is the Flapjacks restaurant just down the street. Sometimes during the winter we go up and spend the weekend and go skiing up at Ober Gatlinburg. If the snow is bad you have a no problem getting in and out of the cabin as it is not up the side of a mountain and the roads are so close in town that they are kept clear. You can always drive up to the tram and take the tram up to ski!
