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.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway
The cabin was delightful and cozy. It was exactly as pictured. We were able to enjoy the park during the day and return to the cabin where we could relax in the evening in the hot tub. Beds and furniture was comfortable and clean. I would stay here again without question.
Loved it. Would stay there everytime in Tennessee.
Soooo glad you loved the cabin. Your approval is our greatest reward. Would love to have you come back when you can.
Cozy Cabin in the woods, close to everything.
Really great family time on spring break. The cabin is comfy and relaxing. Hot tub was perfect, wrap around porch in morning for coffee, perfect. Kids enjoyed pool table too. Thank you for a wonderfully decorated cabin in the woods so close to pigeon forge. FYI- had a tree come down over drive by your house number sign. I dragged to the side and cleaned up best I could.
So happy to hear you had a great visit to the cabin. Your comfort is always our primary goal and hope the pleasant memories will be long remembered.
Seldom does a tree come down but thank you for being so kind to move it out of the way. Our maintenance will finish removing it.
Hope you can return again.
Cabin needs improvement
Old rusted refrigerator leaked, there is a leak on the porch, sheets were old, cobwebs everywhere, driveway to cabin is narrow and has pot holes. Only room to park one vehicle. The hot tub was not hot. Dead bugs and dead scorpions everywhere. Rat droppings found on tray in the kitchen. Kitchen and bathroom floors were filthy. We had to clean everything before we used it.
Occasionally our best efforts are just not enough.
I explained to the guest the refrig. auto defrost had part ordered and that heavy ice had damaged the porch roof shingles.
Just 6 weeks ago we invested over $300. in high quality luxury sheets and towels and in the last 6 months invested $4000. in cabin improvements.
New heating element installed in the hot tub one day before guest's arrival and temp had not been set high enough by repairman.
Interestingly, one guest had space to park his 40 foot motorhome at the cabin.
Most cleaners spend 30 to 45 minutes preparing a cabin. My cleaners regularly devote 2 to 2-1/2 hours making sure the cabin looks as if no one had been there before. In the wooded mountains an occasional dead bug shows the exterminator is working.
I have only one rental cabin and it gets 100% of our attention.
We had a fantastic weekend away in this cabin. The cabin itself looked just like the pictures and was very clean, the beds were so comfortable, and sitting outside was as peaceful as it gets. The location was ideal, we felt a bit like we were in our own little world away from any type of city or town but it was just a short 15 minute drive to get to restaurants. The owner was so kind, we accidentally left a laptop and he was quick to call and let us know and extremely helpful in remedying the situation. We could not have had a better weekend and will most definitely be back!
Your wonderful comments expressed exactly what we hoped to achieve when we set up this cabin, a place to really get away from the pressures of the world and refresh your spirit. We felt that way when we stayed in the cabin and wanted everyone to share our experience. You made us feel we have succeeded. So glad you mentioned the convenience to town as well as the feeling of quiet peacefulness at the cabin.. Happy we could reconnect you with your laptop computer.
We loved this property very much and plan on returning in the future.
Only 35 miles to Cherokee, North Carolina. Indian reservation with shopping restaurants and Harrah's Hotel and Casino. Lots of local music, bluegrass, country, gospel and popular. Many theaters and huge shopping.
