About Laura

I want all of my guest to enjoy their stay at The Apple Treehouse. I won't solicit reviews from you because your stay is a vacation! I do appreciate any reviews left but most of all I want your stay to be hassle free, relaxing and fun!

August 2015 we have made upgrades of a 40 inch flat sceen, Wii and upgrades in bedding. The yard is also in a constant state of improvements. I love to work on the yard in my mountain get away!

Laura purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Laura chose East

My husband and I decided on The Apple Tree House after a long search for the perfect property. We bought it at the end of 2005 and still spend lots of time enjoying our mountain get-away. We all love hiking from the property and the large front yard. We origionally wanted a 'mountain view' but decided the large yard had a great view and we were never worried about our house falling off the side of a mountain or our children falling off a deck! Plus the roads are always passable and no one gets car sick because the roads have NO hairpin turns or steep drop offs. You won't need chains for your trip and no fear of getting 'stuck' by inclement weather

What makes this cabin unique

FREE Local Phone as well as free WiFi provided!

Orthopedic king bed and professional housekeeping!

COUPLES SHOWER in master bath!

Flat screen TV, Comcast cable, Wii and Playstation

Large movie library

Private yard with lots of room to play. Flowers and fruit trees in the yard with rockers on the front porch to enjoy it all. Back roads to Dollywood make getting around easy.

Lovely stay at the peak of fall color

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Apple Treehouse cabin. It was the perfect size for our family of 3 + dog, and it was close enough to Gatlinburg that we would drive back to the cabin for a quiet lunch. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and the fall color in the area.

Delightful retreat

  • 4 of 5

We stayed the weekend at the Apple Treehouse. There was some miscommunication regarding the cleaning but it was all resolved quickly and the owner and cleaner both worked to make everything right. Everything seemed exactly as shown on the site and we enjoyed our stay. We were mostly out hiking all day so didn't use any of the games or the tv. The bed was comfortable and the master bedroom was spacious and quiet. Enjoyed our stay.

Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was a last-minute stay for my husband and me, as I had a conference in Gatlinburg and decided to bring him and our dog along to squeeze in a hike on Saturday after I finished with the conference. The cabin is super close to Gburg, and was very clean, spacious, and perfect for us. Unfortunately, we didn't get to spend much time enjoying the cabin, but would definitely return either as the two of us or with friends (as the second bedroom would be fine for another couple). Laura was very responsive, despite leaving to go out of the country the day after my last minute inquiry, and she made logistics very easy. A lovely cabin and we would definitely return! Thank you, Laura!

Fantastic Cozy Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an absolute blast. It was our anniversary trip, and the weather was what I hoped fall Smoky Mountain weather would be like. The cabin was fantastic. The bed was very comfortable. It's a perfect place if you want a secluded getaway.
