Set in the picturesque nature of the Smokey Mountains, this beautiful and spacious new 7 bedroom, 4 bath cabin is a vacation haven. It is awesome whether you visit in the spring when dogwoods bloom beautifully, in summer when breezes blow refreshingly, in fall when foliage colors change spectacularly, or in winter when pristine snow decorates charmingly.
As you lounge in the outdoor hot tub, or sit by the fireplace looking out the large windows, you might occasionally see nature's own entertainment as deer, rabbits, turkeys, bobcats, squirrels, birds, or even bears pass through your scenic view. You can also sit out on the covered front deck in a rocking chair and enjoy the cool breese. There may be a bear cub eating apples in the large front yard. Just one mile from Gatlinburg main street, there's plenty to do and always something for everyone. Nature's Haven is also within walking distance of Roaring Fork Creek, where you can fish, or even wade in the chilly cold water. So escape life's worries with a vacation stay at Nature's Haven in the Great Smokey Mountains.
One the first level (game room level), there are 2 king bedrooms and one queen bedroom. One king bedroom also has a large futon and adjoining bath. In the game room there is is one queen hidabed sofa and a bathroom off the game room. The hot tub is located outside on this level. On the next level (main level), there is the master king bedroom with adjoining bathroom and whirlpool bath. There are also 2 queen bedrooms along with one bathroom. There is also the kitchen and dining room on this level along with the living room. There are actually 2 dining tables in the dining room along with another dining table in the adjacent breakfast room which can accomodate all the guests in the cabin. In the living room there are two full sofas and one recliner. The next level consists of the loft bedroom which has 2 twin beds and one queen futon. The cabin sleeps 20 people. Kitchen is fully equipped with a large refrigerator with icemaker, blender, toaster, coffee maker, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, over the stove microwave, can opener stove, and dishwasher. Living room has ceiling fans and large windows to enjoy the view as do the bedrooms. At the rear of the cabin is a very large gas grill.
We actually own and manage our cabin, so our rates are very reasonalble and competive, please see rates in another section. Cabin is a spacious 3800 Square Feet, so there is plenty of room to relax, and the kids can play in the downstairs gameroom. There is also an extra dining table in this room.
The View outside the cabin is great! You are halfway up a mountain, but not to worry, the cabin is easy to get to with paved roads and driveway. It sits on solid ground, not hanging over a cliff like some of the cabins in the area. There is even a large front yard for the kids to play in and when it snows they can slide in the yard. Nature's Haven is located only 5 minutes from Food City and about 10 minutes from Ober Gatlinburg Ski Slope. Pigeon Forge and Dollywood is only 6 miles away. It takes about 3 minutes to get to downtown Gatlinburg.
Behind this cabin is part of the Great Smokey Mountain Park, so it is not unusual to see varios wildlife around the cabin, but Please do not feed the Bears. You must keep the trash bins locked, the animals are bad to pilfer! This is a great place to spend your vacation in Gatlinburg Tennessee. Read less

Great place for Family Reunion!
Great place for Family Reunion!
We had 20 family member including 9 kids (aged 2-16). The kitchen was well-stocked with pans and utensils for a large crowd. There was room for the kids to play, close to town for the shoppers, lots of trails and waterfalls for the hikers. It was wonderful to have a place large enough for all of the family. Glenn answered emails quickly before our visit, check-in was easy, and when the element in the oven burned out, he had it replaced the next day. It was a very enjoyable stay!

Owner response: Thanks so much Shirley for you Great review on this cabin. We strive to keep folks happy and getting these reviews makes us feel good about the job we are doing. Glenn
Nature's Haven was absolutely gorgeous! Very secluded, quiet, yet close to town, with easy access. Everything was exactly as described, and more! The cabin was immaculate! Previous experiences with rental cabins left me dreading opening the door, but when I did, I loved the attention to detail...from the towels folded into swans on the king beds, the jet tubs in the Master Suites, and it was clean! When we arrived, there had just been a major ice storm. One call to Glen, and I knew where to find Ice Melt, and shovels! From the balconies, the sound of the creek is wonderful...especially for early morning coffee, as you watch the sunrise. Even in below freezing temps! Our weekend included early mornings, as well as late nights, and the motion-sensitive lighting was a huge help, and very strategically placed. Our youth group has asked that we book the cabin for next year!

Owner response: Thanks again Rosa, I am so glad your group enjoyed the Nature's Haven cabin and had a good time. I try to make a group's stay as comfortable as possible because when I travel, I don't like unpleasant surprises either. Thanks, Glenn
When we arrived, we found the place spotless, with everything the description said, and more! Very secluded, quiet, but with lots of motion-sensitive lights to help us find our way into and out of the cabin for our meetings. The beds were extremely comfortable, with lots of room, and we felt right at home! Previous stays were less than desirable at other cabins, but with the cleanliness and attention to detail at Nature's Haven, we hope to stay there again!

Great Time in the Smokies!
Great Time in the Smokies!
My family and I had a great time in the cabin. The kids loved chilling out in the loft, while the adults leaned towards the pool table. We ate breakfast on the porch watching some of the most beautiful scenery God created. I loved the fact that the cabin feels so much a part of the mountains, but is so close to EVERYTHING! Would definitely visit again. Glen also was easy to reach with our last minute questions. Thanks for that.

Owner response: Hello Miranda, Thanks for such a wonderful review of our cabin. You are very right about the beautiful scenery around the cabin, and all sorts of wildlife meander around the area. If you ever decide to stay at one of our cabins again, be sure to remind me that you stayed in this one, and we will give you a good discount for taking your time to leave such a kind and honest review. Glenn
We had a great time in Natures Haven, it was easy to get too and close to downtown Gatlinburg. The cabin was great, it was clean and had plenty of room for our youth church group.The kids enjoyed the gameroom . My seven year old really enjoyed his bed in the loft. I would and will recommend this cabin to anyone . I really liked all you had to do was drive straight to your cabin and not having to stop by some rental office first. The only bad part was we had to come home.

Nice cabin. Big, lots of room. enjoyed it. Seen lots of wild Turkeys. Owner seems cool. It was a little cheaper then other cabins in the area, but it could use some help. The pool table is so slanted its not worth using, The two pool sticks are so bent that they are worthless. The heat on the hot tub does not get hot enough, it needs to be adjusted. Its luke warm. They said it was 102 degrees, NO way, and guest can not adjust it. The knob on the fire place is hard to use. Nothing Too bad, but would like to see those items fixed and the Cameras removed before I stay again. I know Cameras are suppose to be used for security, but guest privacy should override that.

Owner response: Hello Michael, I'm glad you liked the cabin. There is always wildlife around the cabin. I wish however you would have called me to fix the little problems, I don't always know about them unless someone calls me. I did send maintenance to level the pool table and check the temperature in the hot tub. The temperature still read 102 degrees with a digital thermometer. As far as the cameras, we do use them outside the cabin, both for our concerns and well as for guest safety. They are something a cabin owner just has to use in these times. Thanks, Glenn

"An amazing experience!!!"
This was a wonderful place to stay with a view of the mountains right out the door. We actually saw deer in the front yard. Wildlife is all around. It is literally about a mile to the strip in downtown Gatlinburg. My favorite part about the cabin was the spacious kitchen and gathering room it had. When I go back I will definitely be staying there. The price was very fair as well.

"A wonderful and relaxing week with family."
I found this cabin to work out great. The cost was split between two families, so the value was outstanding. It was also located only minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. Also, the management team was very helpful with our reservation
