Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Apple-achia is a genuine log cabin decorated in an apple theme and pronounced like the mountains where it is located just outside Pigeon Forge, Tennessee overlooking the Smoky Mountains. Designed as a quiet, peaceful getaway where you can relax and refresh your spirit.

You'll enjoy the wrap-around porch with its Amish rockers, swing and relaxing hot tub. The cozy gas fireplace in winter or the charcoal grill and picnic table in summer will draw you into its charm. The pool table, air hockey, book and movie library, over 200 satellite TV channels plus XM satellite radio and movie channels will help you unwind. The huge log king bed in the loft area or the queen bed in the lower bedroom welcome you at the end of the day.

All the excitement you may want is close by in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Dollywood. Most furnishings are Amish built for us, and the cabin is decorated in country decor, cozy and comfortable. Apple-achia is a fully furnished home; all you bring is your food to prepare in the well equipped kitchen. Water quality is a big concern these days and Apple-achia has mountain well water with a state-of-the-art filtration system for pure, sparking clear water.

Think of having your morning coffee on the large porch while listening to the birds in the wooded surroundings and looking out over the Smoky Mountains stretched out before you. Spend a special holiday, vacation, anniversary, honeymoon or just a getaway. You'll want to come back again and again.

Amazing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing the pictures do not do it justice!!! It was very very clean and has everything you need to make your stay great. The owners take great pride in there cabin as well as the people that stay there. We were here for my fiance birthday weekend with friends and have choosen to make this a yearly tradition in this cabin from now on!!! The cabin is located just a 8 min drive from downtown making it so easy to access everything you want to do but yet far enough away to have a real cabin experence!!! I know there were some mixed reviews on the site about mice and a rough driveway but none of this is true. The house is so clean if there ever was a mouse it would be a very rare condition due to being in the middle of the woods as expected so don't let that one person's bad review scare u off as it almost did me. But after taking a chance on the cabin as I highly suggest it proved that that review was deffitnely wrong or if it was the case it was an isolated incident had has been very properly handled. Enough on my rant over that non true review of cabin. As I said the place was beautiful the beds were very comfy had all the cooking supplies needed and electrical stuff such as a coffee maker for morning coffee on the beautiful wrap around pourch that by the way has a hot tub which feels amazing also. I could go on and on about this cabin and how it was way better than we expected for the great rate we paid. But if you are looking for a cabin near down town close to everything but yet still get the cabin feel then look no further this is the one for you.

P.s. the owners are amazing and really easy to work with and will answer any questions you have and do what ever they can to make your stay the best ever.

Owner's Response: It was an absolute delight to have you visit our cabin and the fact that you so thoroughly enjoyed your visit is heart warming. You put into words the picture of the cabin that we would like prospective guests to know and hear. We try very hard to make every guest visit as perfect as possible, and by we I mean also our cleaners and maintenance. Thank you for mentioning the convenient location as well as the furnishings in the cabin. We keep adding new things as we discover them. In our e-mails between us before your visit and in our personal contact after your arrival I saw once again the outstanding character qualities in our law enforcement personnel. We're happy to know that you have plans to make this an annual getaway and will be looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you again for sharing your experience with everyone.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Although the drive was steep, we absolutely had a great stay. When we build our house, we'll probably use some of the same building design. The owners were very nice and made our stay feel like we were at home.

Owner's Response: Betty who is from the ultra-flat state of Deleaware chose this lot because it was not steep. Compared with many drives this one is very easy. We get great reviews from nearly every guest which makes our efforts very rewarding. We continue to provide a quiet getaway for couples or small family yet very close to all activities

Cabin was clean but wish that it had more of a mountain view scenery very secluded and wooded. Overall it was a great cabin. Enjoyed the pool table, air hockey and hot tub. The kitchen had everything you needed​. ❤❤❤

Owner's Response: The greatest rewards we receive are comments like this. We are so happy you enjoyed your visit and we are taking your comment about the view seriously. We have a great mountain view but over time the trees have obscured it and the time has come to correct that. We just this week made arrangements to start having trees selectively cut in order to get our great view back. I think everyone will be suprised when the view is opened up. Thank you for taking time to share.

Very nice place

Loved the cabin, the location, but that drive way needs improved. But very nice cabin

Owner's Response: Glad you loved the cabin. The driveway damage was due to an incident when a family from Florida was escaping the recent hurricane with a large trailer load of possessions. The trailer apparently too large did some damage. On list for repairs. Temporary repairs made.

Everything was very nice. The drive to the cabin was difficult to see and very steep but manageable. Would stay again no problem.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Oh wow what a wonderful stay my family had in this beautifully decorated cabin! It was an easy 15 minute (if that) drive to the Parkway via Wears Valley, yet in a secluded location with just one other cabin. It had all the activities my family could ask for ... hot tub and books for me; pool table, air hockey, corn hole for my son; rocking chairs and porch swing for daughter; comfy couch and satellite tv for hubby! There were some very minor housekeeping issues... a few burnt out light bulbs, some dust and cobwebs up high and excess condensation and a missing door brace on the fridge , but all in all it was very clean and we saw no bugs or critters whatsoever! We will definitely book it for our next long stay in the area!!!!
