About Michael and Linda Yencha
Linda and I welcome you to our wonderful Smoky Mountain Log Home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. We both grew up in Pennsylvania but shortly after we got married we moved away to Maine and our future in the lodging business. We have spent the last 35 years in the hospitality business first in Northern Maine and then in remote Alaska. We built, owned and ran a remote off the grid lodge in northern Maine for 25 years building a log lodge and five guest cabins out of the wilderness. After all those years of running such a large business in such a remote location we needed to downsize. While our Maine lodge was on the market we moved to Alaska and built another VERY remote fishing lodge, again off the grid. Running both places for three years was a challenge but eventually we sold our Maine lodge and downsized to a much smaller business in Alaska. We spent the last twelve years catering to fishing guests from all over the world. Our Alaskan lodge was a fly in only access which taught us to be very resourceful. Most of our supplies were brought in the winter over frozen rivers by snow sled (snowmobiles to those not from Alaska). It was easier, and cheaper, to bring supplies in that way then to fly them in. After twelve years of dealing with earthquakes, wildfires, bugs, long days and floods we decided we wanted to call it quits and look for an easier lifestyle. We spent the last year searching for just the perfect place and when we found Paws and Unwind we knew we found it! When we are not in Tennessee Linda and I still live off the grid back in northern Maine. We are long distance owners but we will make every effort to make your vacation memorable. Even though we are very remote we have satellite internet and phone so that if you our guests have a problem you can reach us personally and we will take care of it as fast and we can. We have aligned ourselves with great people who will take care of any problems that arise. Thanks for checking s out!
Michael and Linda Yencha purchased this cabin in 2019
Why Michael and Linda Yencha chose Pigeon Forge
We fell in love with Paws and Unwind the first time we saw it! What a great location so close to all the activity yet off the beaten path in a quiet wooded neighborhood. The cabin had everything we wanted. When we called the realtor for the property it had already had an offer but the realtor told us she would show it to us anyway. We thought it was torture having to look at the cabin we wanted so bad knowing that it was out of touch but we still went to see it. We also looked at about a dozen other properties and with each one we looked at we realized that the one we wanted was still the cabin we fell in love with. Linda and I were set to leave without finding that perfect property that clicked like Paws and Unwind. Our last day of property shopping our realtor showed up at our hotel to show us yet another property when she told us that the offer on our Paws and Unwind fell through! Before she could say another word I think Linda and I both told her at the same time we will take it!!! We are so happy we got the cabin we wanted, I guess it was meant to be! We think you will love Paws and Unwind too!
What makes this cabin unique
We can't really say what was the one thing that Paws and Unwind had that caught our eye. But I think it was the combination of everything. The location, the layout and the potential. By potential, I mean what we have in plans for it. All our places over the years have been a work in progress, a labor of love! One of my passions is woodworking and over the next few years we are going to turn Paws and Unwind into our masterpiece. Eventually all the furniture in Paws and Unwind will be handcrafted to fit the outdoor theme of the Smoky Mountains. As our first year anniversary approaches we have just added some of the first rustic touches to the cabin. Handmade decorative shutters to the outside have added a touch of color to and otherwise plain log wall. We replaced a very plain ugly quilt on the living room wall with a large hand carved wildlife mural that has really brought the room to life! This year we also replaced the very basic mantle over the fireplace with a new rough sawn hand carved hemlock timber mantle that the fireplace really needed. Over the years in our lodges in Maine and Alaska our guests always looked forward to seeing what we were going to do next We hope that is what our guests enjoy about Paws and Unwind! What will we do next?
