Heart of the Mountains Cabin
Do you want to escape the fast hustle of Modern Day demands and escape back into a simpler time?
Tucked away in a pristine undeveloped natural mountain and valley, only a half a mile from a main access road, Heart of the Mountains Cabin offers almost unheard of seclusion as if you and yours were pioneer frontiersmen discovering this stunning terrain for the first time all on your own! Located in the charming rural town of Oliver Springs, Tennessee it is conveniently accessible to the city amenities with a 15 min drive to Oak Ridge, Tennessee and 25 min drive to Knoxville, Tennessee. It is the perfect location to serve the duality of unplugged rest and relaxation and an hour access to activities that the Smoky Mountain towns of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg offer.
Heart of the Mountains Cabin authentic dove tail log and stone details create a true rustic feel that compliments the surrounding nestled in the woods feel. With 4 bed rooms and three baths, it is exceptionally unique on so many levels and is accommodating and conducive to ensure joyous family gatherings and celebrations. It is located in the center of 70 heavily wooded acres with space for recreational activities such as hiking trails to bring families together. Driving into the site down a beautiful lane immediately creates a sense of peace and oneness with nature with the arrival in a middle of a 360 degree vista of ridges of stunning mountains, streams, rivers, hardwoods, evergreens, waterfalls, trails and valley meadow pastures of green with cows and chickens! It can accommodate up to 16 adults and there is plenty of room for kids with sleeping bags!
The Home is approximately 3,500 sq. ft. with three levels. The lower floor has a private apartment, with a bath that sleeps four with a separate entrance from the main two levels above. The main house is an A frame style rustic loft with a hand crafted stone fireplace as the centerpiece and from the catwalk on the third level, you can see down into the second floor into the kitchen, dining room, den , and foyer. There are three bed rooms and two shower and bath combination bath rooms. The kitchen has brick floors and the foyer is stone, the rest of the house has beautiful wood floors throughout. There is a forty foot main deck across the entire front of the house on the second floor with a swing and two decks off the two third level bed room all with outrageous 360 views!
The back of the house has a hand designed stone patio at the foot of the mountains complete with an outdoor gas and or wood fireplace, grill and smoker with benches and a dining area for all to gather for all the fun and warmth of the fire as you look up the hill behind you at a stone water fall!

Cabin in the woods
Cabin in the woods
The cabin was very nice and secluded in the woods. The directions on the rental agreement were NOT correct. The address that I was to meet at to get the key was a vacant trailer. I was a woman alone in the middle of the woods trying to look for the place to find the key where there was NO ONE. I tried to call all 3 numbers of which I could reach NO ONE! I finally went down a dirt road where I was approached by an older man that stated he cleaned the cabin and would show me the way to the cabin. The cabin was VERY OUT DATED and unclean. The beds and pillows smelt like moth balls. The price we paid for the cabin was a reasonable price, but for what we received I would have rather stayed in a hotel. The people who rented the cabin out where never available by phone to reach when you called them. When you would leave a message it would be three to four days before someone called you back. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Owner response: We have had nothing but great reviews. This party had made their reservation just two days before arrival. They were sent all the details and instructions on how to access the property and we were waiting on them to call with an arrival time as requested, they did not let us know. The claims of the property being unclean are simply not true, we pride ourselves on keeping everything very fresh and do it ourselves with great pride and joy. It saddens us that the guests felt it necessary to make false claims because they didn't read their emails where instructions were when arriving before their departure.
My family and I enjoyed the simplicity of this cabin. It may not be as elaborate as many that you may see, but it certainly will give you that down home feeling. The rooms are very comfortable and the outside grill area is excellent. I plan to spend more time here in the future.

Four of us very much enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It is spacious, comfortable and quiet. Oak Ridge, with most amenities, was very near (10 minutes). The Obed, were we were climbing, was fairly close (40 minutes). It worked well for our trip, I would rent here again. We thought the cabin was comfortably appointed, very pleasant and clean. Our one complaint was that the water pressure is rather low.

Okay, but needed a few extras
Okay, but needed a few extras
There was a lot of good things, but there were a few things I would have liked to seen changed. Plus: great location, close enough to town for groceries, etc., yet a great place for peace and quiet. Our dog loved scampering up the hills and ridges, and got lots of great exercise. As the indoor fireplace was "dangerous" to operate we were told when we arrived, we only used the outdoor fireplace, which worked great with the gas starter. The porches were nice to sit out on, and watch the hummingbirds. It was nice to have full satellite tv and internet service. The king bedroom had a private bath, which was nicely appointed. The kit. stove works VERY WELL -- be forewarned to turn down about 100 deg. Minus: Unlike quoted in the description, no "rivers" on the property, only 1 creek (the others were actually run-off ditches); couldn't find the "caves", as the property owner didn't have a "map" of the property; the owner didn't set up the rental properly, as his mother was actually intending to stay with us (!!!) finally got that worked out; turns out the fireplace wasn't working (which was almost a reason for us to leave right away, as we had turned down other properties that had a fireplace); no place to put pantry items except on the counters which left little space for preparing meals; no table lamps beside the beds for reading; needed more lamps in the living room (very dark); the newer gas grill didn't light, even with a butane lighter, though the gas was turned on; no "waterfalls", though the creek had small ones (it was a very shallow creek); no toaster in the main cabin; the refrigerator had ice makers installed, but not hooked up to the water (we weren't informed of no ice, and had to run in to town for some right after we arrived -- would have been nice to heard that ahead of time); the DVD player didn't work, as there was no remote; the "waterfall" (man-made) wasn't operable. With some changes by the owner, this will be a very nice place. I would prefer that the owner make sure that everything is working before allowing people to rent it, and if things weren't working, let the potential renter know beforehand. There were a few games, but little books, so I recommend that you bring your own, especially if you have kids. The television is an older model, so if the kids bring their game console, be aware that it has only RGB connections -- the upstairs tv is very old and doesn't take RGB at all -- only for watching television.

This was an absolutely wonderful place to spend the weekend! My group was able to sleep 13 people extremely comfortably in the cabin. The cabin itself is completely serene and isolated, however, grocery stores/gas/etc. is only about 10 minutes away. We had an absolute blast throughout the weekend and I strongly recommend this cabin to anyone looking to get away for the weekend or even spending a vacation in. You will not regret staying on this property!
