About Steve Baker

Hi, I am Steve Baker, the owner of Timberwinds. I was born in New Jersey, but have discovered there's no place like Tennessee. I travel quite often, but can always count on great R&R every time I can visit this unique log home in the Smoky Mountains.

Steve Baker purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Steve Baker chose Gatlinburg

I have discovered that Gatlinburg is one of the most unique places I have ever been. It borders the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. And it exhibits a mountain character that is preserved in time. My home is located on a mountainside in the city limits called Chalet Village. This village contains hundreds of unique chalets and log homes. Every home is unique in its design. This has been the perfect area to own a home

Great first visit

  • 3 of 5

Besides the parking. It was a great stay. Even if it was 100% the parking was still a lil messed up. But once past that. The trip was well worth it. We will most certainly be back again. Thank you so much for the invite and allowing us to stay in your beautiful home

Very nice mountain cabin, a lot of room for a family of 4...

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in early August for 6 nights with my family and we loved all of the room we had. Cabin was very clean, beds were comfy and the pool table was a hit with the kids. The driveway was definitely steep, but most of the driveways and roads in that area seemed to be that way...my husband had no problem navigating it day or night. The cabin was exactly what we were looking for and it was a nice value for the rate we paid. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Gatlinburg area.

Beauty in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful. A lovely setting for coffee every morning on the porch and wine in the hot tub at night. We all loved the ambience of the chalet. It was beautifully decorated and comfortable for our family of 5. We had plenty of room and the pool table got used a lot by us. I highly recommend the cabin and the location. Close to everything but still in the hills. Gatlinburg has never looked better and we highly recommend the Capture! Also food at the Land Shark! Take time to hike to Clingmans Dome and remember have your coffee on the porch!

good.. I would lrecommend it

  • 4 of 5

We were 5 adults and required 3 bedrooms. Parking was a bit difficult for turning around. Some improvements such as there was a shortage of cutlery, pillows were pretty poor... but the beds were good, all around very good..

Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort

Gatlinburg sits on the doorway to the most visited National Park in the US; the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This authentic historic place has a great mountain personality and is greatly influenced by European alpine history

However, although it maintains its quaint mountain charm this town of 3,000 residents often swells to 20,000 people who come to enjoy attractions and leisure amenities that rival large tourist destinations. It is part of the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge- Sevierville tourist destination, the 7th most popular tourist area in the USA.

Gatlinburg is home to Hard Rock Cafe, TGIF, Corky's BBQ along with some great local restaurants. The largest shark tunnel Aquarium, Ripley's Aquarium is a must see. Gatlinburg is also home to a large craft zone featuring mountain artists, sculpters amd other artisans who have lived in these mountains for generations.

There are zip lines, nearby whitewater rafting, great hiking, golf, outlet mall shopping, and Gatlinburg even has even its own ski resort; Ober Gatlinburg, complete with a tram connecting downtown to the ski resort.

But my favorite attraction is the hundreds of black bears who live in these mountains and at times venture down to stroll along the city streets.

There is no place like Gatlinburg !
