About the property

Sleeps 4, 1 Queen Bedroom + Queen Bed in the Loft. 2 Baths. 1600 sq ft., Hot Tub

Do you want to just see the Smokies from a distance or would you rather stay in the mountains with the majestic peaks surrounding you? Our chalet style, authentic Appalachian timber, log cabin sits on an .82 acre wooded lot, 2500 feet up on Cove Mountain and has no next door neighbors. All you see around you are beautiful views of the Great Smoky Mountain area.

Southern Drawl Cabin offers over sixteen hundred square feet of living space, a great room with soaring cathedral ceilings, a spacious kitchen with an island, a master bedroom with a brand new (coming 3/1/18) aspen log, queen size bed, a loft bedroom with a new queen size bed (coming 3/1/18), a new foosball table and Arachnid dartboard console, two full baths and 3 new TV's with Direct TV.

As you arrive at the cabin, the first thing you will notice is it's expansive view of Cove Mountain. It still takes my breath away every time I see it! When you enter the cabin, you will be immediately greeted by the cathedral ceilings and 11 front windows that tower 2 stories in the Great Room. The windows provide you with an impressive and constant view of Cove Mountain and the valley. When you need a break from all the fun and activities, sink into the leather sofas as you watch DIrect TV or a movie on our DVD player and warm your toes in front of the toasty gas fireplace. To the right will be the dining area with seating for four, and straight ahead is a fully equipped kitchen, where you can prepare a home cooked meal. The rest of the main level contains the master bedroom and bath. The master bedroom has a new, aspen log queen bed, armoire and dresser. You can enjoy your favorite TV show from under the fluffy comforter as you settle in for the night. The master bath has a closet that contains a full size washer and dryer, a shower with sliding glass doors, a pedestal sink and toilet.

The stairs in the Great Room will lead you up to a spacious loft. A cabin isn't complete without a rustic chandelier and ours provides ambient lighting for the cafe table in the sitting area. The Loft also doubles as a game room. We have a new foosball table and Arachnid dartboard console; along with cubes that are filled with crayons, coloring books, cards, DVD's and board games. The loft bathroom has a relaxing jetted tub where you can soak your cares away, and then tucked away in the back corner is a new, cozy queen size bed with it's own TV.

The floors are original hardwood; except for the slate tile in the kitchen and vinyl in the downstairs bath.

The two wrap around decks are open to some of the most beautiful mountain views in the Great Smokies. You can take in the mountain scenery from your rocking chair on the back deck, while preparing burgers or steaks on the gas grill. Continue around the side of the house and you will find our new, covered outdoor dining area where you can enjoy the nature around you while you eat. The newly updated, outdoor hot tub on the secluded private area of the lower deck is a great place to rejuvenate after a day of strenuous shopping, sightseeing or hiking. It's also a romantic place to share a bottle of wine with your loved one. All these comforts and beautiful landscape are waiting for you to enjoy. The only thing missing is...YOU.

Location, location, location! Southern Drawl Cabin is located in the "quiet side of the Smokies" in Wears Valley. While we are away from the hustle and bustle of downtown; Cades Cove, Metcalf Bottoms, The Sinks, Meigs Falls, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Townsend, Dollywood and the Great Smoky National Park are within a 5-25 minute scenic drive away.

We also have our own page on Facebook, where we post pictures and share articles about events that may interest our Guests; just search "Southern Drawl Cabin" and either like or follow us.

I am frequently asked, "What is the drive up to the cabin like?" Once you turn off of 321, it's about a 3 mile drive. The first 2 miles are relatively flat; with a gradual incline. The last mile has more of an incline and 3 steep but short inclines; at this point you know you are going up. The road itself is 1-1/2 to 2 lanes wide, paved and in excellent shape compared to many others that I've been on. 4 wheel drive is not necessary to get up the mountain; it really is a scenic, woodsy drive. The majority of people who live on the mountain are very courteous and will stop and pull off in a driveway to make the side by side passing process of 2 larger vehicles easier. If you've never had the experience of driving up a mountain, the first time up you may feel a bit intimidated but like anything else, once you've done it and know where you are going and what to's a breeze and the view from the cabin will be worth it. I have yet to have received any complaints from Guests saying that the drive up was too much for them and they had to make other accommodation plans.

About Darcy Otto

My husband Jim and I have 5 children; ages 23 -10, and we are a newly blended family. We both grew up in small, rural towns in Wisconsin. We met through an online dating site and have been nothing less than a success story at what some say is unconventional love. It isn't always easy, but you fight for what you want and what is important to the heart. Jim has been a firefighter for the last 30 years and works for a local propane gas company. I've been employed at M.O.M. (Master of Multi-tasking) for the last 20 years.

Darcy Otto purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Darcy Otto chose Sevierville

Southern Drawl Cabin means a lot to us and holds some pretty dear memories. We stayed here as Guests in October 2016, for our honeymoon. We fell in love with the cabin immediately; along with the location and stunning views. Upon leaving, we said, "If this cabin was for sale right now and for the right price, we would buy it." A few months later, the previous owner put it up for sale and here we our dream cabin. We don't own any other cabins or rental properties. This is our vacation home and it will continue to be a place for us to make memories with our family, and it is our hope that our Guests can do the same.

What makes this cabin unique

In my opinion, what makes Southern Drawl stand out among most cabins is its privacy. We also own the adjacent lot, so no one will ever be able to build next to us. We don't have neighbors on either side of the cabin, nor do we have neighbors right in front of us or behind us. It's just us and nature. I also love the vast view that we have of Cove Mountain. My favorite days are when you wake up to the singing of the birds and see the billowing clouds of fog passing through the valleys of the mountain. It really does look like smoke! It's fun to watch as the sun crests over the peak of the mountain, spilling its rays of sunshine down the mountainside. In the evening, if there isn't a full moon, I enjoy laying out on the open deck and being overcome with awe, as I look up into the heavens at the Milky Way or spot shooting stars. I truly am in love with this cabin and the area around it.

Another unique benefit has to be our consistent pricing. As a traveler, I get frustrated to see extreme price hikes during the busy seasons. Truthfully, it makes me feel like I'm being taken advantage of. We don't do that at Southern Drawl. We offer competitive pricing that stays the same no matter the season - NO PRICE GOUGING during the high travel seasons. We just try to provide you with fair and affordable accommodations.

Convenient, clean, and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Southern Drawel. It is very easy to access and away from the noise and congestion of Gatlinburg and P.F.

The cabin was very well appointed with everything you will need to enjoy your stay. The cabin was also very clean and it was obvious that the owners take pride in it.

The views and the privacy of the location were great and getting into the park for hiking was very easy/convenient.

Darcy, the owner, was great to work with and even gave us a text that the cabin was available earlier than planned. Overall a great place to spend our spring break and will definitely be checked for availability next time we head to the Smokies.

We really enjoyed our recent stay at the southern drawl cabin. The setting was breathtaking and the cabin was gorgeous. We enjoyed grilling and eating dinner on the deck. It was tons of fun sitting in the hot tub at night and looking at the stars. Idyllic.
