Our goal at Mountain Cove Cabin is to provide our guests with not just a place to stay, but a positive and memorable vacation experience.

We live in South Florida, so an escape to the mountains is always a refreshing experience for us.

Dawn Tombley purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Dawn Tombley chose Chalet Village

We looked at so many properties before we found Mountain Cove Cabin. As soon as we walked in the door, we all fell in love with the cozy, yet spacious open floor plans on all 3 levels. Our girls decided that this was the one! We spent 3 months updating and modernizing it, so that every aspect would be perfect for our guests. For us, it is a home away from home and we cherish each moment that we can spend here!

What makes this cabin unique

Though we are close very to town, with all the attractions, restaurants and shopping, when we are in the cabin it seems like we are so far from it all! We love the peaceful serenity of being in the mountains.

Perfect place to get away! Wonderful cabin in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in Gatlinburg many many times and this was by far the nicest place we have stayed. The Cabin was gorgeous and had anything and everything you could want in a home away from home. And we could even bring our dog which made it that much nicer. We are a family of six with our kids ranging in ages from 15 to 22, and there was plenty of room for all of us. I can’t rave enough about this place! Honestly I didn’t want to leave and go back to my own house

:-) From the cozy beds, to the completely furnished kitchen, to the outdoor eating area, to the hot tub, to the upstairs patio (my favorite place by far!), to the entertainment options, Mountain Cove had it all! We are already looking at our calendar to find a weekend (or longer) to go back. This place would be great for families as well as a few couples wanting to get away. Lastly, it was very reasonably priced compared to other places we have stayed; and the owner, Dawn, was great to work with. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Can’t wait to return soon!

Blown Away

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by the level of effort put into this cabin. Not only is it a great three-story layout in a perfect location, it is also stocked with everything you need and then some. The movies, games, pool table and hot tub kept the kids entertained. The kitchen has everything you can think of.... in fact I made a list of things I want to add to my own kitchen. Everything was super clean. The blankets and towels are all soft and high-quality. A lot of extra things were provided like snacks coffee tea water and laundry soap. I really enjoyed the personalized cabin mugs. Every bedroom has a bathroom and a super cute laundry bag. The location is only a couple of miles from town but the drive can take about 15 minutes to get down there. I was a little worried about the road up there but it's actually not bad at all. We had a minivan and the drive was no problem. The driveway was easy (not one of those super steep ones) and the parking is level. There are quite a few places on the way up that make for great picture spots with the mountain behind you. Two thoughts for future guest.... check the rooms before you assign them. We wish we would have given the teens the loft and taken the second level bedroom for our self. Just for the privacy and we like the bed better. Make sure you empty the grease pan on the grill after you use it, we were visited by bears because we didn't. We would happily stay here again.

The Mountain Cove Cabin was amazing. Our host were great and made sure we had a very enjoyable stay. The cabin has everything you could want. The views are great, there are TVs in every room, the cabin has over 100 dvds in case you have a rainy day. Our family of 5 had a great time and hope to return to the Mountain Cove Cabin soon!

A Real Gem!

  • 5 of 5

It's apparent that the owners have put a lot of effort into making this rental a 'home'! Everything was perfect! The cabin, and everything in it, was extremely well maintained and whoever the owners have do the housekeeping is exceptional - the place was spotless. Every item you could possibly need - from laundry detergent, to every cooking utensil you could possibly need - was provided (something I haven't found at the two other cabins we've rented). The lower level was ideal for giving the 3 older teens we had with us their own space and entertainment area - part of the reason we picked this cabin. Communication with Dawn was quick and effecient from the beginning of the rental process right through an issue we had during our stay. Could not have asked for better!!
