Cosby cabin description

THREE LITTLE BIRDS opened in October, 2012 and has been delighting our guests ever since! Our tranquil setting and many amenities will make this a one-of-a-kind retreat for couples, families, and hikers. This is a beautiful time to visit the Smokies. Visit our website to see what visitors are saying in our cabin Guest Book!!

Three Little Birds has 2 bedrooms + a large loft with a twin trundle bed, 2 bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, a 6-person hot tub, and 2 beautiful covered porches with plenty of rockers to relax. This is a newer and spacious handcrafted home nestled in a tranquil wooded setting just minutes away from the Cosby entrance of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and an easy 25 minute drive to Gatlinburg. We are also 15 minutes away from whitewater rafting and 5 minutes from Climbworks ziplining.

Spend your days doing nothing or filling them with adventure.

Within the home, you will find luxury in a cabin setting. A true escape from everyday life yet the comforts of home. Most everything in the home was built or bought locally so guests will enjoy local craftsmanship and art.

The home has an open floor plan with plenty of entertainment space. The living room is equipped with a 55' HDTV, surround system (which also plays on the back patio and hot tub), and woodburning fireplace. Each bedroom also has a large flat screen TV.

The outside of the home has plenty of places to relax and play. Read a book on one of the porches, soak in the hot tub, or enjoy a game of horseshoes in the yard. There is also an outdoor firepit patio to take the chill out of the evenings or cook up a smore.

If you can't leave work behind or just need a change to your remote setting, Three Little Birds has a unique set up. The home has high-speed internet, boosters to provide WIFI access anywhere - outside or inside, and a small private office with 2 desks just off the loft area upstairs.

For families, the cabin is equipped with the goals of never hearing the words 'I'm bored' or 'why is this car packed to the roof'. The cabin has a bouncy seat, brand-new Pack and Play with sheets, Kelty baby carrier perfect for day hikes, and plenty of plasticware in the kitchen. Within the house, you'll find many board games, a game table, and tons of toys to keep everyone entertained.

Hikers will envy the 2-car attached garage. With charging stations for your walkie talkies to a place for your pole and backpacks, you'll find it easy to enjoy the National Park and return to the comforts of home. Also provided are river tubes, inflatable boats, bicycles, and plenty of yard toys.

Don't worry about a thing at Three Little Birds Cabin!

              Owner info

              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.
