About the property

Awesome 3BR Cabin in Heart of Gatlinburg location! Theater, Hot Tub, Pool...

Morning Star is a classic Smoky Mountain escape nestled in the heart of Gatlinburg. It offers all the comforts of home and the luxuries and amenities of a mountain resort vacation with the convenience of being just 3 miles from the exciting Parkway!

Morning Star is a great choice for a family vacation, couple’s retreat, or getaway with friends. As you drive up to this charming 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom cabin, you'll be greeted by a unique green roof and beautiful log exterior- a true beauty in the Smokies. We love our cabin and we hope you will too!

Main Level:

Only 5 steps and you will enter your home away from home. Inside, Morning Star is spacious and charming with warm wood walls and cathedral ceiling to welcome you. In the cozy living area there is plenty of seating with two plush sofas and chair to kick up your feet and stay warm by the gas fireplace or chill out watching TV. Cable, AppleTV, DVD player and Wi-Fi are available throughout the cabin, so social media and the internet are just a click away.

Once you work up an appetite, take advantage of the fully-equipped kitchen and very large dining area. This easy kitchen provides plenty of cabinets and ample counter space for whipping up meals. You will find all the tools you’ll need from utensils, plate settings, pot and pans, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee pot, and grill. And even a kettle for you tea lovers.

The beautiful dining area offers plenty of seating for all guests, so you can sit down for a family meal together. It's perfect for holidays, special occasions, the nights you want to catch up over a hot meal and breakfast before spending a day exploring the wonders of Tennessee! The windows around the room offer a light, bright atmosphere.

Off the main living area is a master bedroom complete with a queen size bed, TV, closet, full bathroom and doors to the deck to enjoy the view.

Out on the main deck, sit back in the rocking chairs, fire up the gas grill, or hop in the hot tub and relax while taking in the view of the Smokies!

Lower Level:

Downstairs for the fun… Morning Star has an awesome home theater with a 100” projection screen TV, surround sound, and DVD player. It’s the perfect place for a movie night with family and friends sitting back in comfortable plush stadium-style recliner seating. You will find spacious playing room where kids and adults stay entertained. Bring your cards and board games or just take a chance to challenge one another to a friendly game of Foosball.

The lower level has two large comfortable private bedrooms each with their own full bathroom. One beautifully decorated bedroom offers a queen size bed while the other has two twin beds with a trundle. Both bedrooms open out onto the lower deck to enjoy tranquil wooded wilderness.


There is a paved drive and parking for 3 cars. Parking is on an incline but enough room for easy pull straight in parking. Mountain and wooded views surround the cabin, and cabins located along the street give you a sense of community.

You'll have access to the community swimming pool just a short drive from our cabin within the resort. There is also a resort recreation area offering volleyball net, basketball hoop, swing set, horseshoes, and a beautiful pavilion with picnic tables, ceiling fans, and corn hole board within walking distance!

Guest access

Our cabin has keyless entry. Once booked, we will be in touch quickly with a couple of follow-up items and then again a few weeks prior to your arrival with the address, directions and cabin access (door entry code) info.


***Please review all 'House Rules' prior to booking!!!***

TAXES- the state of TN requires lodging, county and state tax rate of 12.75%. There are no hidden fees.

Morning Star is the perfect Gatlinburg location!

About Mitzi

Hi, my name is Mitzi and my husband and I are so excited about owning our new cabin in Gatlinburg, TN! We live in SW FL and have 2 sons who take after us- love adventure. We love boating, the FL Keys, and almost anything water, but are looking forward to being able to spend time and taking advantage of each of the seasons that the Smokies have to offer (and all the waterfalls right near our cabin!). We look forward to sharing our home away from home with you.

Mitzi purchased this cabin in 2018

Why Mitzi chose Gatlinburg

I wanted my children to experience the mountain life, so last summer i VRBOed a house for the month of July in Gatlinburg. We fell in love with with all the hikes and waterfalls on the Roaring Fork, the scenic drives to river tube in Townsend and hang out in Cherokee. Gatlinburg is the center of it all and offers the charm of a rustic town. We chose this cabin's location because (unlike being on Ski Mountain) it is a very easy well lit drive to serenity and grocery store and gas station w/o getting into congested areas.

What makes this cabin unique

Morning Star is clean and uncluttered as if you just checked into a resort vacation. The space is welcoming and open for a few or many. If only have 5 steps to enter and offers a bedroom on the main level.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Love the home. The home had something for everyone in our family. The hot tub was my favorite. The fireplace, movie room and foosball table for the others. Location to downtown Gatlinburg was terrific. No traffic getting in or out from the home. We will be back!

Wonderful host! Beautiful cabin! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Mitzi was full of information and responded so quick. The cabin was perfect for all of us I loved the space and how warm and inviting it was. Soft sheets and towels, very clean and tidy! Kids loved the theater room and hot tub. Location made everything hassle free. Our family enjoyed snow tubing, ice skating, hiking and downtown Gatlinburg, all just a just a few minutes away. The cabin was easy to drive to and park at. A nice grocery store, gas station, restaurants, and small shops were right there w/o having to deal with downtown traffic. And so easy to drop right into the heart of Wonderful Gatlinburg! Would defiantly stay again whole family rates 5 Star!

Very clean neat and lovely cabin. Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our brief stay and wish we could have stayed longer. The cabin was very clean and perfectly decorated. The hot tub was an excellent and relaxing way to spend the cool evenings after a long day of sightseeing. Perfect distance from area attractions. My boys loved the movie theater and fooz ball table. We will definitely consider renting this cabin again!
