                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We enjoyed visiting the Smokies during my husband’s career in the United States Navy. After his retirement we believed the area was a perfect halfway point of distance between our extended families. Upon settling here we decided to extend ourselves into the realm of cabin ownership. We wanted opportunity to share our love of the area and hospitality with others. We both enjoy photography & the Smokies fits the bill for such! By the way the above photo is one of our two Shetland Sheepdogs, Cassie. We love animals too!

                  Why the Owner Chose Sevierville:
                  Surrounded by evergreens and pines Appalachian Songbird resides within a cul-de-sac. We appreciate the fact that the location is ideal for taking a walk and there are plenty of trees throughout the area. The historical symbolism of the log cabin as well as the unique cottage look drew our interest. I suggest you check out the wikipedia site about the log cabin history.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  There is a front porch as well as a back covered deck. The enlarged deck has old fashioned rocking chairs & a gas grill. There is an unusual extension of deck in the shape of a gazebo with a picnic table. To me the most memorable feature of Appalachian Songbird is the body of a tree in raw form used as part of the staircase! I only wish I knew of this tree's history.
