Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We love the Smoky Mountains and have always dreamed of owning a home here. Our dream came true in June, 2012, and we're looking forward to sharing our knowledge of the park and our home with our guests.
For the past 20 years, we have escaped our hectic lives in Chicago to hike and backpack the beautiful trails in the Smokies. We were engaged on the top of Mt. LeConte, and both of young children had their first (of many) backpacking adventures here in the Park. We've hiked most of the trails, including much of the famous Appalacian Trail. We still live in Chicago but once the kids are off to college, our next dream will be call Tennessee our home.
Why the Owner Chose Cosby: We fell in love with this home from the moment that we saw it. We wanted to find a place where we could get away from it all yet be connected to work through high-speed internet (not a easy find in the mountains). We wanted to be as close to the National Park as possible -- it's practically in our backyard. We also needed a place to unwind and leave the hectic world behind. Most importantly, we wanted to build beautiful memories with our family, and share our experience with others. We found everything on our wish list at Three Little Birds.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: The cabin is beautifully handcrafted. It was build to last forever in this peaceful setting. The rooms are spacious with high-end finishes which was far more appealing to us than the average home built specifically for rentals. Three Little Birds was build to be 'a home'. We absolutely love our home, and hope that you will treasure it as we go.
