Serendipity Too is perfect for savoring romance and bliss with the Love of Your Life in our private love nest. Whether you're getting engaged, celebrating a wedding, planning a honeymoon or anniversary getaway, our home is lavishly decorated with Your New Beginnings in mind!
Serendipity Too was completely remodeled inside & out in 2012 and our decor is updated seasonally. Our log home has black appliances, granite-look counter tops, stylish plumbing & light fixtures, a queen sleeper sofa and bumper pool/poker table in the carpeted loft, white blinds, cute dishes & lots of cookware if you want to cook at home!
Plus we've improved our property with an outdoor fire pit and lots of ever-blooming red and magenta rose bushes as well as hundreds of perennials.
Perfect for all our Christian guests, we created a prominently-placed 12-foot long banner that proclaims: 'As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord!' Joshua 24:15
Big Black Bears have been seen right here! (Looking for tasty garbage, not people!)
Romantic Serendipity Too is an all-log home nestled on a mountain ridge in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, just 15 minutes away from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountain National Park entrance. It provides a private, peaceful location perfect for your romantic getaway or weekend escape, yet is also prepared to host up to 6 adults.
Our cabin is located in a log home community called Sky Harbor, accessed from the King Branch Road exit just a 15 minute drive southeast of Pigeon Forge on Parkway 441, and about 15 minutes to Gatlinburg. All cabins are owned individually, as opposed to being part of a resort. You can expect to drive 5 to 10 minutes from the Parkway up to the cabin. The closest Trolley Stop is located at the Gatlinburg Welcome Center, about 10 minutes farther southeast from the King Branch Road exit on Parkway 441. Click on our map link to see exactly where Serendipity Too is located and you can zoom out to see Pigeon Forge (about 10 minutes northwest from the King Branch Road exit) and Gatlinburg (about 15 minutes southeast).
Enjoy the tranquil relaxing breeze from the Cracker Barrel rocking chairs and bench on our back porch as you view the beautiful Smoky Mountains. Let our cabin transport you from the every-day hustle and bustle to a place where you will refresh and renew. You will enjoy the privacy and peacefulness here, since each home is on an acre lot and the nearest cabins are at least 100-200 feet away on either side, or 500 feet up or down the mountain. The back deck has bamboo privacy blinds and ivy-covered lattice that keep others from seeing you when you’re enjoying the hot tub.
The Mountain View from our front porch expands across a valley to another mountain ridge covered with trees and other cabins. There’s no other cabin directly in front of or behind Serendipity Too. Our large wooden porch swing hangs beneath the back deck with full afternoon sun and splendiferous sunset views.
As you enter this cozy chalet style log home you will find 30' high vaulted ceilings with a large river rock-covered fireplace and log mantel, a 32' TV with DVD/VCR player, a leather sleeper sofa with a queen-size bed and stereo with AM/FM/CD player in the open great room.
Our fully-equipped kitchen includes a large round glass and wrought iron table with four comfortable suede-upholstered chairs. You will be pleased to find there are plenty of upscale dishware, silverware, utensils, pots & pans, casserole dishes, cooking and bake ware, appliances and Black & Decker coffee maker and toaster oven.
In the master bedroom you will find our Queen Anne Jacuzzi tub for two, perfect for a slippery & sudsy bubble bath with your honey. You will also have a sturdy queen size log bed with stylish comforter and soft linens, a closet and oak armoire for your clothes and a TV. This Master Suite opens out to the private deck where you'll enjoy the secluded wooded setting. A set of linens and towels are provided for your convenience along with a starter set of toilet tissue & paper towels.
Upstairs in our loft is a 3-in-1 bumper pool / poker / table, plus another TV with DVD/VCR and a large microfiber convertible sleeper sofa with queen-size bed. You will never have to leave this lover’s paradise to have a great time!
On the large back deck you have a huge hot tub comfortable for 4 or 6 people, plus 3 rocking chairs and a love seat with lots of pillows where you can enjoy the mountains with your special someone. You will have complete privacy with 3 sets of bamboo pull-down blinds and ivy-covered lattice that surround the deck. At night you'll enjoy the romantic lighting strung around the back porch ceiling!
Serendipity too has lots of adorable and romantic decorations and floral arrangements including hearts, angels and roosters and is bright and cheery with lots of huge windows for viewing the mountains. There is a full bathroom with tub and shower, plus a separate laundry room with full-size washer/dryer. There’s even an ironing board, iron and hairdryer!
Amenities include Wireless Internet, Charter Cable TV with extended network channels plus free local telephone service. Plus, we provide sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, wash cloths & soap for your personal & housekeeping needs.
This is the ultimate cabin to celebrate your engagement, wedding, honeymoon, anniversary or unique & romantic getaway; it's also perfect for family fun. We know you'll enjoy your stay in Serendipity Too and will find it difficult to leave!

- Large Black Bears looking for garbage naturally roam the area from about April till November. We have two 55-gallon metal drums with bear-proof lids for your garbage. If you WANT to increase your chances for seeing a bear, just leave some stinky rubbish by the fire pit, which you can see from a safe distance on both the front & back decks. We've seen them both day and night so you may be in luck! Our nearest neighbors are at least 200-300 feet away; none of the nearby homes face ours. You don't need to worry about snoopy people trying to catch you naked! Plus our back deck has three sets of bamboo pull-down blinds & ivy-covered lattice to provide maximum privacy while you enjoy the hot tub! There's a Hanging Swing for Two beneath the hot tub and a large open area with a real in-the-ground fire pit for your own campfire. There's plenty of kindling to get your fire started but you may want to buy logs from a store if you're not into gathering sticks from the woods!...moreless

This was a wonderful place for our romantic getaway! The cabin was beautiful. Taking the GPS route took much longer than it did to take the directions provided. Be sure to take the route provided by the owner! The cabin is located in a beautiful area that is quiet and perfect for sight-seeing. Overall had a wonderful time!

My husband just got home from Afghanistan in January and we needed a space to get away and relax as a family. The owner was extremely helpful in making this happen for us and we couldn't have asked for more, it was perfect. The pictures themselves definitely do not do the cabin justice because when we first walked in we were in awe how beautiful it was. The ceilings were cathedral like and we loved the little details such as polished branches used as handles on the cabinets, the gorgeous windows above the tv and fireplace, and the little complimentary shampoo and conditioner was very nice. It not only was a romantic setting for my husband and I but our children truly enjoyed the loft and hot tub, so much they cried when we left lol. Thank you so much for the opportunity to enjoy such peace and serenity! We hope you will have us again some day :) God Bless!

Owner response: What more can we say, except we're thrilled you appreciated the tranquility and beauty we are able to share. We love repeat guests and hope to hear from you in the future! May God continue to bless you and your family!
The cabin has everything we were hoping for. All equipment worked perfectly and the decor was absolutely in perfect condition. The location gave us the feel of being in the woods/mountains while only being a few minutes from all of the attractions in the area, we love hiking the trails in the national park and Cade's Cove. Both of these were easily accessible. One of the other big pluses of the location is being located between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge while not being affected by the traffic of either. Excellent quiet location and warm comfortable cabin with all the amenities. One of the little things that surprised us was finding several of the hotel type amenities such as mini shampoos and soaps as well as a supply of dishwasher soap that matched the number nights we were there. All in all this is a definite repeat location.

The cabin was beautiful and provided everything for our stay. The only drawback to the cabin was getting to it - but we did over come that challege. We will stay at this cabin again - loved the wildlife and owners willingness to work with us and our schedule

We loved our stay at Serendipity Two! It was the perfect getaway and a chance to enjoy the fall colors. The location is perfect for either Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. The property was clean with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The owner, Suzie, was extremely helpful in addressing our questions and we hope to stay in her beautiful cabin again sometime! We enjoyed every minute of our stay with one exception...we wished we could have stayed longer!

My husband and I stayed here recently. We had the most amazing time. We got there a little later then we expected and was a little nervous booking online. But we were completely amazed by how cute and clean this cabin was. It went above our expectations. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the appliances and they had a grill. Which made it easy for us to do our own meals. The hot tub was a bit hot the first night but we turned it down a bit and the next two nights it was perfect. Being more of a morning person I started reading a book that the owner kept there along with different family movies. I enjoyed reading a book in the hot tub while my husband slept in. The room had a nice jacuzzi. We weren't at the cabin as much as we would like to because we did zip lining and white river rafting. Both so much fun and close by! This was such a nice anniversary weekend and I definitely recommend this place to my friends and family and am hoping to soon return. Suzie the owner was real nice and answered any questions and told us about some activities close by in Gatlinburg. Can't wait to go back!

This was our first time using VRBO and visiting the Smokey Mountains. The cabin was everything they advertised and we had a blast staying there. Suzie made it very easy to rent and we would definately stay there again. Very good idea to bring some provisions initially as it is quite a lengthly drive to a store.

About the owner: We enjoy the Smokies so much, we came here for our honeymoon! We fell in love with the peacefulness and fresh air in the mountains. We always travel with our four pugs, who consider Serendipity Too their 2nd home!
Why the Owner Chose Sky Harbor:
We love the mountain air and friendly local community, plus there are so many great restaurants to try and shopping galore! Our cabin is smack dab between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg on 'The Spur' of Parkway 441, so it's perfect for access to the entire community!
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We love the privacy and openness of our log chalet which has lots of huge windows for mountain views plus a large front porch and back deck.
