This gorgeous cabin features a newly renovated kitchen with granite countertops and is fully equipped with everything you would want - pots, pans, dishes, silverware, glasses, ceramic top stove, oven, dishwasher, coffeemaker, microwave, and refrigerator. Oh, did I mention that there is a grocery store less than 3 miles away so you can do all your shopping right before you arrive.

Feel free to enjoy a romantic dinner while sitting at the dinning room table that is located next to a cozy fireplace or a quick snack at the island in the kitchen. After dinner you can sit back and enjoy the fireplace or the views of the mountains while drinking a cup of hot cocoa or watching your favorite movie on the flat screen tv in the den.

For the sportsmen in the family there is the game room located on the lower level that also has a fireplace. It is perfect for those who want to entertain or sit back and relax. The game room features a regulation size pool table, two pub style tables with chairs and a comfy leather couch which all have great views of the flat screen so no one will miss their favorite sporting event.

Both back decks are secluded and offer privacy. On the top deck you can sip your morning coffee while enjoying the views or sit back in the evening to watch the sun set over the mountains. If relaxation is what you are looking for then come down to the lower deck where the hot tub is nestled in the corner so you can enjoy the same great views. The lower deck also offers a cozy country swing with additional seating.

When you decide to retire for the evening both bedrooms have a queen size bed with upgraded Tempur-Pedic Memory Foam mattresses with Sealy Memory Foam pillows, alarm clock, chester drawers, and large closets for the storage of your belongings. There is also a queen leather sleeper sofa on each level for additional guests.

This cabin has every amenity you could ask for all the way down to free long distance, internet, and even a washer and dryer so you can stay even longer. Only starter sets of sheets, towels, paper towels, and toilet paper are provided so bring extra if you plan on staying longer than a few days.

Below you will find the Promotion Rental rate windows and the Grand Total after cleaning fee* and State/Local Sales Tax. There are no hidden doc or reservation fees like other rental company's charge.

* Your Cleaning Fee covers cleaning of the cabin after you leave with hospital grade cleaning supplies to make sure the entire cabin is fully disinfected for the next guest and your starter supply of toilet paper , paper towels, trash bags, liquid dish soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, organic hand and body soaps, trash removal, towels, and linens. Also after each checkout the hot tub is drained, scrubbed and cleaned, refilled, and the water is treated for the new guest.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  Why the Owner Chose Sevierville:
                  We purchased this cabin because we LOVE the great location!!! You can be in the center of everything if you want within 5 minutes or you can stay secluded in the mountains if you chose to do the too. 'Mountain View' is in our address for a reason. Plus there are no winding roads to get stuck on. There is a Kroger's grocery store less than 2 miles from the cabin to get all last minute items so you don't even have to get on the parkway or fight traffic to get to it. In the fall there are great mountain views and when it rains you can hear the gushing of the water running down the dry water creek that runs thru the middle of this spacious property. Our family loves this cabin and we think your family will too!!!
