About Gloria and Mark
We are Gloria and Mark the new owners of Cozy Cabin Rental. We both have an avid love for the outdoors and since falling in love with Waynesville on a vacation more than 10 years ago, we decided the mountains of North Carolina will be the place where we want to retire and begin our second act careers. In the beginning, Gloria was born in CT and moved to FL in her childhood when her family relocated there. Prior to obtaining her physical therapist assistant degree from Polk State College, she took employment at jobs that complemented her desire to travel and explore new places and scenery. For the last 20 years, Gloria has rehabilitated many patients and finds time to instruct wellness classes to seniors at our local wellness center. Growing up in the rugged hills of western PA Mark was a sports enthusiast enjoying hunting, fishing, hockey and baseball. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from Penn State, then began his career in the nuclear power industry which he continues today after 28 years. As an engineer, he is a perfectionist and translates his skills learned from the stringent demands of his profession to life's everyday tasks. Together we enjoy an active lifestyle and outdoor activities. We target National Parks for our vacations and are continually awe inspired by what each has to offer. We also enjoy gardening, attending sporting events, live theater plays and music concerts. Though our interests are wide spread, when the dust settles at the end of the day, we prefer to be under a canopy of trees in the forest.
Gloria and Mark purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Gloria and Mark chose Pigeon
We spent many years vacationing in this area and have traversed many roads throughout Haywood County. We fell in love with the location of this property because it is private with many trees and conveniently located off of a paved county road with a paved access road to the cabins with only 3 miles to downtown Waynesville. We also like being located near Smokey Mountain National Park, accessible to hiking, waterfalls, biking etc.
What makes this Cabin unique
We enjoy this cozy "Bear" cabin because it makes you feel like you are in the outdoors with modern conveniences. The cabin is cozy and quaint decorated in a black bear theme. There is a front and back door with screen doors so when opened it allows the fresh mountain air to run through the cabin. The view from the back deck is what sold us, by day it is long range mountain views and by night you can see the twinkling city lights of Waynesville in the distance. There are family farms across the road so it is not unusual to hear a rooster crow in the mornings! It is a special treat vacationing this close with nature and having modern conveniences available to suit every one's idea of the perfect mountain vacation. We hope you will enjoy our cozy "Bear" cabin as much as we do.

We had a terrific stay at the Cozy Cabin during the Thanksgiving holidays. It was very clean, well-maintained, and exactly as the pictures show it to be. We turned the heat on at night and the whole cabin warmed up perfectly very quickly. Perfect size for a couple. Communication was excellent. Gloria was very responsive and checked in frequently. I knew if there was any issue I could reach her, and that was great. Location of cabin was a convenient 10 mins drive to town-center and we were able to get dinner and breakfast and have a wonderful time. I highly recommend for a wonderful getaway.

Cute, cozy, clean
Gloria and Mark were super helpful before and during our stay. Everything we needed was stocked in the cabin. We loved the Mountain views, elk watching in the Cataloochee valley, and relaxing in the cabin after a long day. Overall we enjoyed our experience and would book again.
Mackenzie & Tyler,

Great little cabin.
My wife and I stayed ar Bear cabin November 3rd through 7th and really enjoyed our getaway. The owners Gloria and Mark were wonderful and provided us all the necessary information about our stay. The cabin is only 400 square feet but did not feel cramped. There is a great back porch with a wonderful view. Perfect for morning coffee or evening relaxation. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bathroom had all the towels we needed. Private setting but still close to town. We highly recommend this cabin.
Thank you Gene & Steph for taking the time to write a review about your experience in our "Bear" cabin. We are so happy you took the time to enjoy the view from our back porch and glad to know you liked the proximity of the property to Waynesville. We enjoyed having you both as our guests and hope you consider staying with us again when you feel the mountains calling you back!!!

My husband and I rented this cabin for a long anniversary weekend. As we drove up the secluded driveway and entered the house, we knew we were going to enjoy our time over the next couple days. It is a perfect getaway spot for a couple wanting some time to disconnect from the outside world. Small mountain view, but still beautiful to sit outside and look at with a cup of coffee in hand. The bed was super comfortable, and the bathroom had all the linens needed. Kitchen was fully stocked with all pots and pans needed to cook. We grilled out one night and the grill worked great. Communication with the owners was fantastic. I spoke with Gloria multiple times before my trip, and when we arrived we had a bottle of anniversary wine waiting for us! So sweet! We highly recommend staying at this truly cozy cabin!
We are so glad you enjoyed celebrating your anniversary in the Waynesville area and choosing our cabin for your accommodations. We hope you consider us in the future and please note, we plan to have the beautiful mountain view enlarged as we are scheduling to have some tree clearing performed without compromising the private setting.

Wonderful place to take in the beauty of the smokies. So cozy. Love love love
We actually booked this last minute while we were on the road. The owners communication was wonderful. They were so helpful as we figured out how to get the paperwork done on the road. I will be booking this again. The cabin is private. Very clean and cozy. It is nice to disconnect but when we had to use our phones the reception was great (Verizon). Can't wait to go back.
