About Kevin Furlan
My wife and I fell in love with the Smoky Mountains while I was battling colon cancer. We had come down to the Smokies for the first time in March of 2018, between two of my surgeries. To us it was a wonderful place full of kind people, hiking, and pure enjoyment. Once I recovered, we knew that we wanted to have that experience for the rest of our lives. We are avid hikers and like to spend the majority of our time exploring the Smokies. But we also like to take advantage of the cool shops, restaurants, and shows in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We live and work in Illinois. I was born and raised in northern Illinois, but my beautiful wife is from the great state of Ohio. We purchased this cabin for our enjoyment, and the enjoyment of our guests. It is our true hope that no matter where you stay in the Sevier County area, you experience the same warmth and happiness that we feel when we visit.
Kevin Furlan purchased this Cabin in 2018
Why Kevin Furlan chose White Oak Lodge
The cabin is beautiful and very well maintained. It was built in 2008, but it feels and functions as a brand new cabin. When my wife and I were looking at cabins, this one was the best maintained to the extent that it looked almost brand new. The beds are comfortable, and easy to fall asleep in. The cabin is on a resort community. There is a clubhouse with an outdoor pool (Note: pool open from Memorial Day to Labor Day), workout room, tennis courts, and a basketball court. It is about 20 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, and 30 minutes from the Sugarlands Visitor Center in the Smokies (depending on traffic). The cabin is close enough to enjoy the area, yet far enough away to not be in the middle of all the visitors to the area.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin is a rustic looking cabin with all the comforts of home. There is WiFi, cable, a hot tub, a full kitchen, a king size bed, a queen size bed, and a queen size inflatable mattress. The resort has an outdoor pool, a workout room, easy access from Route 321 (East Parkway), tennis courts, and a basketball court. If you are looking for a retreat to come back to after a long day of hiking with all of the comforts of home, this cabin is for you. If you are looking to be close enough to the action to truly enjoy the area, yet far enough away that you don't feel claustrophobic, this cabin is for you. If you want a relaxing vacation where you can choose to hike Mt. LeConte, walk around downtown Gatlinburg, or catch a show in Pigeon Forge with a comfortable home to come back to, then this cabin is for you.

Enjoyed our 2-night stay with a group of 6 of us celebrating my Bachelorette weekend. I've stayed in cabins in Gatlinburg several times and have always dreaded the curvy, steep drives up to the cabins. This cabin is in a great location VERY close the strip in Gatlinburg and we felt safe since this cabin was near other cabins. The only issue we had was we couldn't get the BluRay player to work. We couldn't find the and tried to follow the instructions in a booklet in the cabin. It wasn't a huge deal though! The check-in and check-out process was extremely easy and the cabin was very clean! The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were spacious for 6 girls getting ready to go out to dinner both nights. :) I HIGHLY recommend this location and will stay there again when I go back to Gatlinburg!!
a wonderful vacation !
This was a very nice place to stay very quiet and very clean everything you need to have a great vacation and good location and great owners i am ready to go back already and i hope to be able to return in the future. There is something i need to say this cabin did not have all the fees that others have only a cleaning deposit and not all the owners fees we where thankful for this and we will definately rent this cabin again thanks for a great place to stay!!!
Beds were very comfortable, something you don't always have at other places. Scenery is beautiful.
Our stay at this property was perfect! The home was clean and exactly as listed! The kitchen had everything we needed, and the pool and hot tub were great after a long day in the Smoky Mountains. We would recommend this property to anyone!! Absolutely wonderful!
From the moment we walked in, it felt like home... very clean and comfy!!! Loved that the pool and basketball court were within walking distance. We will definitely be coming back to this cabin again!!!
Amazing Family Trip!
This is an amazing property! The cabin was clean and accurately described. The log cabin look, outdoor & indoor Jacuzzi, great showers, and well stocked kitchen, towels, utensils, etc were perfect. The washer/dryer were great to have on a week long trip with a family of 4. I woke up one morning to a woodpecker hammering away on the porch, but the owner is already aware of them and taking steps to remove the problem. It's a short 20 min drive into Gatlinburg which made it a perfect base of operations to visit all the attractions. The only drawbacks were the community BBQ & gas fire pit instead of having our own. (Although they were never crowded and well stocked with propane.) The owner was great to work with and responded quickly to all emails within minutes. The community was also quite and well maintained.
Thank you very much for the kind review. Unfortunately you are 100% correct that there are only public use grills on the resort property. The HOA will not allow cabin owners to have their own grills. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. And I was fortunate enough to find a very good wildlife abatement company that installed woodpecker deterrents at the cabin this past Monday. Again, I apologize that you had to endure the woodpecker in the early morning hours while you were trying to sleep. I have been very fortunate to have had wonderful luck with very good guests, and you and your family were definitely among them. I do hope that you will visit us again. Thank you.
