Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 maximum)

Floors in the cabin were recently refinished.

This cabin has been used for numerous honeymoons and anniversaries. In addition, there have been at least 3 weddings performed in the cabin. On the other hand, it has also been used as a retreat when families have lost loved ones or to escape from an otherwise stressful life.

Relax in the rocking chairs on the front porch or the ones on the back porch. In cooler weather, relax in front of the fireplace & enjoy the beautiful mountains through the floor to ceiling glass wall in the main living area. You can also relax in the whirlpool tub in the master bedroom or the hot tub on the back porch (the main picture was taken from the hot tub).

The cabin is on 2 1/2 acres of land and very private. From the living room sleeper sofa or recliner or from the back porch rockers or hot tub, you see no other cabins/houses, just the woods, wildlife, and Blush Mountain in the distance. Fall foliage is spectacular!

The master bedroom has a king size log bed, flat screen TV, DVD player, and whirlpool tub. Adjacent to the bedroom is a full bathroom with shower/tub combination.

There is 1 step up to the front porch & another step up to the main part of the cabin which has the dine-in kitchen, master bedroom .

There is a locally made birch tree lamp in the main living area. Other lamp shades feature artwork of the Hautman Brothers who are wildlife artists with works in Smithsonian and the White House.

There is 1 step down from the main floor to the back porch which has the charcoal bar-b-que grill, rockers, & hot tub.

The 2nd bedroom & full bathroom (shower/tub combination) are located in the loft. It features a Hautman Brothers bedspread and another Hautman Brothers lamp shade. There is a flat screen TV, XBox 360 with video games & board games.

The living room is equiped with a 32' flatscreen TV with DVD. The master bedroom has another flat screen TV with DVD player. DVD movies and books are provided for your enjoyment and relaxation.

All the attractions along the Parkway in Pigeon Forge are only about 5 - 10 minutes away, while Dollywood and the national park are only about 10-15 minutes away. Snow skiing, Ripley's aquarium and museums are about 20-30 minutes away in Gatlinburg.

Why Andy Carver chose Sevierville

The property has plenty of privacy located on 2 1/2 acres of land, but it's only about 4 miles (10 minutes) to the parkway in Pigeon Forge where all the shows, restaurants, etc. are located. It's also only about 30 minutes to the national park, tubing, zip lines, horseback riding, snow skiing, etc.

What makes this cabin unique

The privacy, scenery, & location make this an ideal location for a family, but it's also an ideal location for a romantic getaway. It has been used frequently for anniversaries, & honeymoons. In addition, AT LEAST 3 WEDDINGS HAVE BEEN PERFORMED IN THIS CABIN.

Warm and cozy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This cabin for the price was more than we expected. The view was exceptional and everything we needed was available to make us feel at home. Only had a slight malfunction with the fire place but maintainance was prompt in making repairs. Plenty of clean linens were available. Our kids loved the pool table and we enjoyed the hot tub in the night time cool spring air. I would recommend this cabin for a quaint family get away to get away from the PigeonForge parkway mayhem. The owners were very friendly, upfront and provided very detailed instructions with prompt responses to all our questions. Thank you for making our 1st trip to TN an enjoyable and memorable stay.

Quiet and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this cozy cabin. The back porch was a wonderful place to sit and take in the view of the mountain while enjoying the peace and quiet. The road had very little traffic on it and our dog loved taking morning and evening walks on it. The fireplace was wonderful while sitting in the living room, especially on the snowy day we had. If you are looking for quiet days and nights, this is a perfect place to stay.

Owner's Response: Great guests - So glad they enjoyed their stay along with their dog. I can't guarantee snow for every trip, but will try to do everything else I can to make the stay enjoyable. Looking forward to having them come back.

Relaxing Stay in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is in a great location. Close to the excitement of Pigeon Forge but secluded enough for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the mountains. Cabin had everything we needed. Owner went above and beyond to ensure we had a nice stay. We'll be back.

Convenient, Quiet, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at this cabin and was very pleased with it. It was comfortable and very well appointed, including a hot tub, gas log fireplace, and fully stocked kitchen. There were also games available. Everything was as described and in good working order. The location is woodsy and quiet, but a very short drive from Pigeon Forge and fairly short drive from other area attractions. The owner (Andy) was very helpful and responsive, and it was clear that he cares about the property and the experience of his guests. As has been noted in other reviews, the road up to the cabin is a little sporty, but that isn't too unusual for hilltop properties. I would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Great guest. Look forward to hearing from him again. Hopefully he'll be able to bring more family & friends to share his experience in the future, but the cabin is also a nice retreat to "recharge batteries" & escape from a busy schedule.

Loved the cabin! Only complaints are the road to the cabin and the trees blocking the view of the mo

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was nice and peaceful. The kids loved the hot tub and the pool table!! The road to the cabin was very scary and the view of the mountains was obstructed by the trees!! Overall we enjoyed our stay

Owner's Response: I wasn't aware that the trees blocked the view. The tree in the middle has been removed. I can't do much about the road. It is paved all the way to the cabin, but it's a typical mountain road. If you want to go to the mountains for a mountain view, you have to travel mountain roads. As the saying goes, if you want to go to the mountains, you have to go there, the mountains don't come to you.

Relax in a tranquil mountain setting located just minutes away from great family orientated entertainment and good food in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg in one direction and the spectacular mountain scenery of Wear Valley and Cades Cove in the other direction.

The cabin is on 2.5 acres of land and no other cabins in sight when foliage is on the trees. In the winter, there is 1 cabin that can barely be seen in the distance.

There are other cabins on the mountain, but not in the immediate vicinity. Since there isn't much traffic, you can walk down the main road. Taking a right from the cabin is a fairly easy walk. About 1/4 mile down the road is a small (5-10 acre) meadow with a small pond and a couple of cabins around it. Walking past the meadow, you can walk 1/2 mile - 1 mile along the road through the woods without seeing another cabin. A small stream crosses the road there & there a couple of cabins with permanent residents.

Turning left from the cabin and it's about 1/4 mile to the bottom of the mountain where there is a nice stream with several small waterfalls. I've included pictures of some of waterfalls.

Golf: Great golfing is available within a 15 minute drive in Pigeon Forge.

Ski: Snow skiing is available about 30 minutes away in Gatlinburg.

The national park is about 30 minutes away.
