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.

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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.

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

very cute and relaxing cabin in Seveirville, TN

  • 5 of 5

such charm and grace is found in this relaxing cabin nestled about 15 min away from Pigeon Forge- a home away from home with everything you need and everything to relax and unwind for our family of 5. Taking a dip in the jacuzzi in the snow was unbelievable. We loved our 2 night get away and would love to come again!

Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The cabin is beautiful and was very clean. The views are somewhat obstructed by trees and the driveway needs some work but overall it’s a fabulous place.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you loved your visit to our cabin. Thank you for sharing. The trees and the driveway are both on the calendar to be corrected - hopefully soon.
