Property description

***This cabin is rented by the owner directly. When you email or call about the cabin, you will be speaking directly with the owner- not a management company. We know more about our cabin than any management company ever would or could. While management companies handle hundreds of cabins, we have two. You can see the difference in how an individual owner who is invested in their homes treats you vs. a management company. There is no comparison. Once you have rented from an owner, you will see the difference!

It's our second home and we take pride in sharing it with you. We are responsive owners who answer inquiries/emails quickly and attend to our guests' questions and concerns to help make their vacation the best!

Our photographs are up-to-date (taken late August 2014)and represent the cabin and furnishings accurately- what you see in the photos is what you get when you arrive. Note that most guests comment about the cabin being much better than the photos even show! (The cabin was stained in May 2015- look for updated exterior shots soon!)

We've been renting by owner since December 2006 and we work very hard to provide exceptional guest service to make your vacation the best it can be.

This cabin averages over 310 nights rented per year. You know it's a great place to stay when it's that popular with guests. It's not fancy, nor is it luxurious, but our guests always comment about how cozy it is and how they feel like they are at home here. We have a high rate of return guests who stay with us and we feel they are like are family.

Check out our great guest comments to see what the fuss is all about and why our calendar books so quickly. Check out our guest reviews. We think they set our cabin apart from many others because it allows you to see that guests love it enough to take the time to leave a comment.

We have a fantastic cleaning staff who work diligently to make sure the cabin is spotless. Our guests constantly comment on how clean and homey the cabin is. Finding good cleaners is one of the hardest jobs for cabin owners, and we hit the jackpot with ours. They treat the cabin like it is their own, and, while they are not perfect, they do a wonderful job making sure it exceeds our guests' expectations. Out of all the wonderful things about 'A Hidden Paradise', we find our guests most appreciate its cleanliness because it is often the number one worry of someone when considering where to stay. You can have confidence this cabin is clean and we do not charge a separate cleaning fee!

VRBO now offers trip insurance which covers our guests in emergency situations like inclement weather, sickness, or loss of a job. Guest often have emergencies come up which prevent them from staying. Insurance is strongly encouraged because, as small business owners, we can't afford to refund guests' money when they have issues come up that prevent them from staying.

'A Hidden Paradise' is four minutes to the Gatlinburg 'strip'- yet totally private. This beautiful cabin called 'A Hidden Paradise' is romantic and is the perfect spot for your honeymoon or anniversary celebration. It is located in the city of Gatlinburg. It's a small piece of paradise for those vacationing in the Smoky Mountains. If you want to experience Gatlinburg's sights and sounds, but still want peace and quiet, this cabin is for you.

Many couples spend their honeymoon here and return each year for anniversary celebrations. Gatlinburg is a place for weddings and anniversary celebrations. This is the perfect spot for you when you are trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It's a place where you can go to re-connect and spend quality time together. Guests often leave photos of themselves in our guest book and comment about how refreshed and recharged they are after a stay here.

This Gatlinburg cabin has a loft area with a king sized bed, private bath, and jacuzzi tub. You can soak in the jacuzzi tub and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and privacy. The spacious loft has a rocker for enjoying a good book or to just relax and sit. The loft has huge windows and a wonderful wooded outdoor view. You feel like you are sitting in a tree house looking out toward the surrounding foliage. A 30' flat screen TV with DVD player is available for movie watching in bed.

The downstairs area includes a second bathroom with a shower, a pool table area with a game table and bar stools (also a 22' flat screen TV), and a comfortable living area with a gas fireplace (operational October-April). A recliner allows you to stretch back and watch a favorite movie or video. A 42' flat screen TV was added in July 2010 in the living area. The dining area includes a table and fully stocked kitchen. We have tried to furnish any item you would need for cooking and preparing meals. We constantly replace and update our cookware and kitchen supplies making sure you have everything you need. We even have a crockpot.

You can grill steaks on the charcoal grill (replaced in 2015) and share a romantic candlelight dinner or picnic on the deck in front of the outside fireplace. The outside fireplace is close enough to the hot tub so you can soak in the hot tub and enjoy the fire at the same time. The deck is private and secluded and has a hot tub for romantic evenings. There are two wooden rocking chairs and a small table between them on the deck.The deck is private enough to soak in the hot tub in just your "birthday suit" if you choose!

The cabin is on the boundary of the National Park near the Roaring Fork Motor Trail, so don't be surprised to see some wildlife (sometimes including a bear or two) while you are there. Guests leave comments when they see bears near the cabin, so it is definitely a possibility to see one during your stay.

One of the best surprises of this cabin is how convenient it is to all area attractions, yet it seems miles away from the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg. You are about a mile from the Parkway at light #3 in the center of Gatlinburg, but you will think you are miles away from everyone and everything. If you read through our guest comments you will see how many people feel that is the best secret about this cabin. The Arts and Crafts Community is just a few minutes away.

Come and spend your time together in 'A Hidden Paradise'. It will be a time for renewal and relaxation just for the two of you. You will want to come back every year for your special time together.

A Hidden Paradise has WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS, so you can take your laptop and be able to check email or use it for work. An alarm system was added in the fall of 2009 for extra security and peace of mind.

The long paved driveway will accommodate a motorcycle trailer, too.

Come and stay in this wonderful Gatlinburg log cabin rented directly by the owners. We love our vacation home and want to share it with you. We visit several times every year and do our best to keep everything in tip-top shape. It is a special place we love and we know you'll love it too.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We're the Faust's- Neil, Lisa, Dylan, and Drew. Our family bought A Hidden Paradise in 2006 when we sold a long term rental property we had owned for many years. We live in Alabama and enjoy spending time in the Smoky Mountain area. We travel to the area about 5-6 times a year and visit local area attractions or just relax at the cabin. As you can tell from the photo, we also like to cruise. Our two sons, Dylan (age 24) and Drew (age 22), are now out of the house and starting life on their own. Dylan just graduated from UAB (The University of Alabama in Birmingham) with a degree in Economics and Drew graduated from Wallace State with a certification in Diesel Mechanics. Dylan lives in Birmingham and is currently looking for a job after just graduating. Drew works in my dad's family business which we took over in July 2015 when my dad passed away and just moved out of our house a few months ago into a rental house next door to us. I just changed careers after teaching elementary school for twenty six years. I now work for the Alabama Education Association and Neil is a cattle farmer.

Why the Owner Chose Forest Springs (Gatlinburg, TN, USA):
We live about 4.5 hours from Gatlinburg, so it's a quick trip for us to enjoy everything. When we were searching for a cabin to buy, the long driveway shot of the cabin pulled us in. We loved the idea of privacy and convenience to local attractions.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
A Hidden Paradise is homey and comfortable. When you stay at the cabin, you feel like you are at home, but it's still romantic and private. We especially love the outdoor fireplace which is on the deck with the hot tub. The outdoor fireplace is operational year round. We also love being just one mile from the Gatlinburg strip. The cabin's location is such a great spot- convenient to everything, but still peaceful and quiet.
