About Elaine and Kenny Tasker

We built the cabin with our own two hands and the hands of our dear family members and a few friends. It was a labor of love. My husband dug every footer by hand and sanded every log. Our children and grandchildren helped with the chinking and my sister hand-made the stained glass in for the gable end windows.

Please visit for more pictures and information! Thank you for considering staying at The Cabin

Simply charming cabin in the valley

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here during our Spring Break to celebrate our upcoming wedding anniversary. It was everything we could have hoped for! We love the simplicity of the mountains and being surrounded by nature, and this cabin is perfect for that. We loved sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch and being able to hear the nearby creek from the cabin. You can see mountains everywhere you turn and feel like you are truly in the valley. The cabin was quaint and set the tone for a few days away to relax and get away from the business of daily life. The owners are hospitable and you can't beat the price. Thank you Ken and Elaine!

Beautiful, rustic cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was rustic but had all of the modern conveniences for maximum comfort. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and the wi-if fast. The hosts were pleasant and checked on us to make sure we didn’t need anything. We had a lovely time and especially enjoyed the sound of rain on the roof. We would come back again.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the cabin On this site do it no justice! This cabin is absolutely beautiful and I live that it was Built by hand by the home owners. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves at this cozy cabin. We were able to go out and explore during the day heading a few hours to Gatlinburg and Cade’s Cove, where we were able to see 2 separate black bear families, a coyote, dear and tons of wild turkey. The cabins has fire place kept us nice and cozy while we slept and being able to hear the stream from the front porch was amazing. We definitely are planning to revisit and recommend this place to our family and friends.

Best Cabin Ever

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We could not have asked for the cabin and owners to be any better. Great location and very private. The cabin was the best stocked cabin we have ever stayed in. Really clean and felt like home. Kenny and Elaine were both very helpful and kind. Thank you both for making our stay the best!

Awesome cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cozy cabin with all of the essentials! Everything was so comfortable and clean. This was a perfect getaway for my two girls and me. After skiing all day it was so nice to return to our warm cabin complete with a washer and dryer to relax and dry our hats and gloves for the next day on the slopes. Ken and Elaine were so hospitable and made sure everything was perfect for our stay. We will return next time we are in Maggie Valley!
