Greeneville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11-15)

Viking Mountain Lodge is an old, 2200 square foot log cabin located inside the Cherokee National Forest near the Appalachian Trail. The cabin sits high up in the Smoky Mountains about halfway between the quaint mountain town of Hot Springs, North Carolina and the historic town of Greeneville, Tennessee. The two story structure is made of rough cut hemlock logs that are hand hewn on the exterior side. With four bedrooms and two full bathrooms, VML has the ability to sleep 15 guests making it well suited for large groups or family reunions.

VML overlooks Paint Creek which runs the width of the four acre property. Whether you’re sitting on the front porch in the handmade cypress furniture, on the deck in the rocking/adirondack chairs, or inside with the windows open, you can listen to the peaceful melody from the rushing waters of Paint Creek. Our guests frequently comment that this alone is worth trip to Viking Mountain Lodge. There is a fire pit in the front yard down by the water’s edge for roasting marshmallows or keeping warm on a cool evening. You can trout fish in the creek or catch bream in the larger of the two ponds on the property.

Go for a day hike on the AT. Have a picnic on top of Camp Creek Bald. Go whitewater rafting on the French Broad River. Fly fish Big Laurel Creek. Head to historic Greeneville Tennessee and visit one of the many museums. Most of all, RELAX!

Although the cabin is rustic, it has all of the amenities of home; a large, fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, linens, towels, wood stove, gas fireplace, 6 brand new 5 blade Hunter ceiling fans, gas/charcoal/smoker combination grill, and even a 50” High Definition Plasma TV with 7.1 surround sound for those cold or rainy days. All of this in a spacious, clean cabin decorated with numerous Bev Doolittle prints and many pieces of antique furniture.

About Alan

Although I’ve lived all over the southeast, I’ve spent the last 25 years living in and around the Orlando area. When I was a kid, my grandparents had a summer home in Lake Toxaway, NC that we used to visit every year. That is where I fell in love with the mountains. I’ve always been the outdoor adventure type and that, coupled with my experiences as a youngster, has made owning a cabin in the mountains a lifelong dream. Though I’ve never actually lived there, when I drive up to the Smokys, it feels like I'm coming home.

Alan purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Alan chose East

One of the driving forces behind my purchase of this cabin is its close proximity to the Appalachian Trail. I’ve hiked numerous sections of the AT, and this area is one of my favorites. It is the perfect jumping off point for all kinds of outdoor activities. Whether it’s fly fishing Little Laurel Creek (2 miles), kayaking the Nolichucky (9 miles), hiking the AT (1 mile), bouldering at Blackstack Cliffs (8 miles), biking the Paint Creek Trails (7 miles), or having a picnic at 4400’ in Jones Meadow (7 miles), adventure is just out the back door.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is situated nearly halfway between the quaint mountain town of Hot Springs, NC (15 miles) and the historic town of Greeneville, TN (18 miles). Although both offer adventure, relaxation, history, and culture, the best thing about Viking Mountain Lodge is the fact that you don’t even have to get in your car to find something to do. Fish for trout in the creek that runs through the front yard, go for a day hike on the AT, bike along Paint Creek up Viking Mountain Road, or grill out on the deck and enjoy the cool, clean mountain air. On a clear night, walk out the garage and look at the sky, it’s spectacular.

Get away from it all!!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and 8 other people stayed at Alan's place in Greeneville and had a really good time. The cabin is perfect for large groups, we had 2 couples and 5 single people and there were 7 beds in all. Perfect! Ma and Pa's Restaurant is about 10 minutes away, which seems very basic on the inside, but the food is amazing and also look to see that there's no men operating the restaurant (cuz let's face it, we would just be in the way). And if you really want to get away from it all, meaning no cell service or internet and complete relaxation, then I couldn't find a better place than this. Thanks Alan, see you really soon!

Great retreat in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the mountains at Viking Mt. Lodge. This was the perfect jump off point for my fairly large group of motorcyclist to tour the mountain roads of eastern North Carolina and Tennessee. The cabin comfortably slept seven of us and had many kitchen necessities on site (creamer, sugar, salt & pepper, etc). The owner was easy to work with and quite accommodating. Our group members are already talking about re-booking for next years fall foliage season.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Comfotable, quiet cabin, felt like home. 9 adults and two children were in our group with room for more.

Great customer service - Alan called to make sure everything was going okay.

FYI - the back road over the mountain to Greenville is well maintained and easily passable in a car.

Hooe to come back sometime!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Awesome cabin. Very roomy at a great price. Close to many outdoor adventures. Margarette Falls is close by and worth the hike. Great opportunity to get the teenagers away from their phones. They can't wait to do it again! Went to Hot Springs Spa and soaked in the natural hot springs for an hour. Wonderful. Next time, I plan to stay longer. The owner was great to work with and very quick to refund the deposit. Thanks Alan!!!
