Private Homes, Stoplight 1A cabin description


Go to our website at CabinOnRoaringFork . com for more information and photos!!

The most unique vacation home experience in all of the Smoky Mountains awaits you...

Resting along the Roaring Fork River, Cabin On Roaring Fork is the oldest home available for rent in the Southern Appalachians. Circa 1801, the cabin is hand-made out of hand-hewn logs from the now-extinct American Chestnut Tree. A stay at Cabin On Roaring Fork is like going back in time to the early 19th century, and will provide you with fond memories that will last a lifetime.

This wonderful piece of history has been carefully updated with modern amenities such as Central Heat & Air, wireless internet, and full kitchen.

The private, screened-in porch directly overlooking the Roaring Fork River will allow you to escape the crowds of Gatlinburg after a busy day of shopping and sight-seeing. And if your muscles ache from hiking, soak in the large 4-person spa on the private patio.

Bring your fly-fishing rod and wading boots --- There are plenty of wild rainbow trout to be caught right on property!

As you enter Cabin On Roaring Fork you will quickly see why it is one-of-a-kind: You are surrounded by hardwoods, chestnut walls and intricately-crafted ceilings, with period antiques and comfortable, high-quality leather furnishings. Enjoy our flat-screen HDTV TV with extensive high-definition programming and DVD player, or play your favorite CD on the Crosley reproduction stereo. High-speed wireless internet and local phone are also offered.

Cabin On Roaring Fork has central heat & air conditioning in all rooms.

Enjoy a quiet evening by a real wood fire in the original stone-stack fireplace.

If you enjoy cooking, you will find a modern kitchen with all utensils, pots, and pans. And the charming dining room, complete with a 260-year old grandfather clock, welcomes you like it has countless families over the last two centuries.

And if you would rather eat outdoors, enjoy our screened-in porch or private patio with picnic table.

Don’t care to cook? Take a 15-minute walk or quick drive to downtown Gatlinburg – Cabin On Roaring Fork is only 1 mile from Hard Rock Café and many other fine restaurants.

Each bedroom (one upstairs, one downstairs) is a comfortable queen-sized bed. The living room sofa also converts to a queen-sized sleeper.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Stoplight 1A:
                  We bought this cabin to restore it to its former beauty, so that guests could enjoy a piece of history in comfort and convenience. Our hope is that guests will continue to enjoy this special place for another 200 years.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  It isn't every day that one has a chance to stay in a house that was built a generation prior to the Civil War. And right in the heart of Gatlinburg and perched next to the Roaring Fork River at that!
