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.

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 expect...it'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.
