About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


Are you looking for a cabin that offers PRIVACY AND A GREAT VIEW? A place where the homes are distinctive and the lots provide SPACE between you and your neighbors? Then our WHISPERING MAPLE CABIN is PERFECT for your vacation in the Smoky Mountains just waiting for you.

We have prepared the ultimate RELAXING and PEACEFUL retreat for our guests to enjoy. This cozy cabin is a great place for a FAMILY VACATION, a retreat with 2-3 couples, or even a ROMANTIC GETAWAY. You'll have everything you need in this 1350 sq.ft., pet friendly cabin - we’ve made sure of that.

The first thing most people say when they drive up is “WOW! THAT IS A WONDERFUL VIEW!” The cabin offers a spectacular, unobstructed view from the DECK, and the BALCONY, as well as the HOT TUB, the fully equipped kitchen and the family room. It is nearly impossible to find a cabin with this view for these rates. We offer you a great value and high quality amenities.

When you arrive, there is a wide walkway that leads from the drive to the door for easy level access to the house, NO STAIRS TO CLIMB. You also have plenty of room for everyone to sleep with 3 SEPARATE SLEEPING AREAS, all with regular beds, NO SLEEPER SOFA, NO AIR MATTRESS, AND NO FUTON.

On the main level you will find …

When you enter on the main floor you are greeted with an excellent kitchen with lots of counter space and plenty of seating for everyone. The open, airy floor plan leads into the family room with a stacked stone GAS FIREPLACE. All NEW FURNISHUNGS in the family room make for a warm and inviting space. There is also a 27” LCD TV with satellite and DVD player in the family room. Down the short hall from the kitchen there are 2 bedrooms and a full bath. The master bedroom has a KING bed – TV with satellite and DVD player – reading space with a relaxing leather armchair tucked in the corner. The second downstairs bedroom has a Queen bed – TV with Satellite. There is a full bathroom with a wonderful JETTED TUB, and separate shower as well. Just in case you need to do a little laundry during your stay, we have a stacked WASHER AND DRYER as well.

The loft area features...

At the top of the stairs there is a great game space with a POOL TABLE - TV with satellite and DVD player – CD player – Games - plenty of seating to just lounge around – a perfect spot to just hang out. A KING bed is pleasingly places into the corner of the loft area which offers privacy from the down stairs living area. There is also a FULL bathroom with a shower right next to the King bed. Directly across the loft area is a catwalk leading to a welcoming COVERED BALCONY with that gorgeous view again - a perfect spot to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and watch the sun come up over the mountain.

The outside features...

The greatest thing about this cabin is the peaceful natural surroundings. While you enjoy the spectacular year round VIEW from just about anywhere, you will also enjoy the splendid peace and quiet. We just added a NEW GAS GRILL in case you want to do some grilling out on the first floor covered deck area. Or you may choose to just sit and relax in the ROCKING CHAIRS for a while and listen to the birds chirping and the squirrels playing in the woods around you.

There is a wonderful HOT TUB located just off the side of the house, with reasonable screening from the neighbors. The cabin sits on over 1/2 acre of wooded yard to offer a private location with only a few homes nearby – privacy without seclusion. The driveway has space to park 2-3 cars.

The cabin is located in the Shagbark subdivision, a GATED community with a mix of full time and vacation homes. The neighborhood has an outdoor POOL and TENNIS COURTS, and a great CREEK running next to the main road and along the edge of the community center area. The neighborhood is located 10 minutes from the Parkway in Pigeon Forge and only about 25 minutes from Dollywood. You can also use the Metcalf Bottoms entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park to get between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg without all the congestion of the Parkway.

Make your Smoky Mountain vacation a memorable one. Stay in a lovely, new log home. Check our calendar and reserve your dates today they are starting to go fast!

We strive to offer lower rates than other homes with comparable views and amenities to help make this wonderful cabin an affordable vacation spot. We also DON'T add on a bunch of unnecessary fees - NO per guest fees, NO booking fees and NO administrative fees. We just want you to come and enjoy your vacation getaway in the Great Smoky Mountains as much as we do. Thanks for visiting our cabin, we hope to see you soon!

Hey Darrin,

Thanks for the use of your cabin this week. It was the third year in a row that we visited the Smokies and we really enjoyed the privacy and peacefulness of your cabin and the Shagbark community. I'm glad we found your place on the internet. As a Veteran-Smokies-Cabin-Renter", I would reccomend your cabin to anyone visiting that area.

Again, thanks for the accomodations,

The Boden Family

Cozy little cabin with a beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 plus our miniature schnauzer Buddy spent this very special Christmas at the Whispering Maples Cabin. The view is spectacular and the cabin is very comfortable and well equipped with just about everything you need. We had a very nice family vacation and it was the perfect place to propose to my girlfriend on Christmas morning. The only thing that we thought could be better is that there could be more closet space, we stayed for 6 days and pretty much had to keep everything in our suitcases. Darrin was very easy to work with, if we messaged him with questions he would reply quickly. Thank you Darrin and Cindy for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!

The cabin was clean and relaxing. The price was excellent. We enjoyed the gas log fireplace while playing some games with the family. There was plenty of room for our family to enjoy the time together. The water pressure in the shower was also a nice surprise. The only thing we didn’t find as appealing was the drive in to the parking area. But the owner answered all of our questions up front and was pleasant to deal with. We really enjoyed our stay.

We chose this cabin primarily for the gorgeous view and the pet policy. We were not disappointed. Darrin was very easy to work with. He answered questions and kept us informed whenever a communication was received. Before arriving we received instructions for opening the key box and a map of the resort. The map was right on and allowed us to drive there with no mistakes. Although the cabin is in a gated resort, we didn't feel like we were in a resort. There is plenty of nature to view between cabins. There are cabins on either side but they were mostly blocked by trees and we only heard people a couple times. The yard is small so there won't be much room for kids or dogs to play outside. But there is enough grass for the dogs to potty. The pics of the inside of the house were accurate. The view from the hot tub that is pictured was blocked by trees that have grown up. Upon mentioning it to Darrin he said he would definitely trim the trees. You still see the gorgeous view from the upper and lower decks. The couches were comfortable. The kitchen appeared to be well stocked although mostly we only used it for breakfast. We did grill out one night and everything worked well. The bed was surprisingly comfy. Better than my home bed. We had plenty of towels. The washer and dryer was a bonus so we could pack light. It is in a closet right next to the living room and kitchen and can be a little loud. We just went out onto the deck while we did laundry. The hot tub was awesome. There were ceiling fans in all the bedrooms. I found a box fan as well. The air conditioning worked well during our visit keeping us Northerners cool. There was a stack of board games and puzzles along with a pool table and satellite TV. You should have plenty to do if you are staying in. There was also a basket of brochures and coupons for local activities. A new internet modem was installed on our arrival day. However, the internet is still very slow for searching local attractions. We did better using our cell data. The road to the cabin is steep in places but any vehicle should be able to make the trip. The climb is worth it when you get to stare out at the mountain all day. We received our deposit back within a week. I cannot think of anything that we were missing for a homey stay. We would not hesitate to rent here again.
