About the property

Cabin, 2 bedroom , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

'A Peaceful Retreat' is a private, peaceful, log cabin that will remind you of days gone by.

It has a charming, cozy interior with nostalgic decor. While relaxing on the deck or in the hot tub, you can enjoy the serenity of the forest and watch the majestic sunset over the mountain tops. In the morning, sit on the cozy front porch with a cup of coffee and listen to the birds sing or play a game of checkers on the checkerboard table.

This private cabin is perfect for that romantic honeymoon or anniversary, yet large enough for that small family. So, leave your troubles behind, come make memories and enjoy a quiet peaceful time at 'A Peaceful Retreat'.

Our peaceful cabin is located in the Beautiful Wear's Valley Area. We are only minutes away from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Townsend, Cades Cove & The Great Smokey Mountain National Forest.

About Ted or Pam Ponville

“A Peaceful Place To Visit”

The great Smokey Mountains National Park in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, is a peaceful place to visit. Looking through the eyes of nature the enjoyment and serenity of the forest is like a journey through space before entering the sacred gates of heaven.

Blue hazy smoke drifts lazily over the mountain tops like a blanket protecting a sleepy town. Towards the east, slowly peeking over the horizon, the rising sun views the waking park and unfolds like a majestic answer to an artist’s dream.

Vividly rushing creeks meander along winding mountain roads to form roaring waterfalls that seem to perish like the ends of the earth.

Strolling through lush green forest, sweet chirping sounds float like a choir of angels singing.

This is proof that there is an almighty God and he does give you the desires of your heart. This was a paper I wrote in college in 1991, before we ever thought it was possible to achieve our dream of owning property.

Pam & Ted Ponville

Ted or Pam Ponville purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Ted or Pam Ponville chose East

We came to the Great Smoky Mountains in 1977 for our honeymoon and fell in love with the area. Most of our family vacations were spent in this area. We always talked and dreamed of owning a log cabin one day and that dream became a reality.

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoying shopping for local crafts, outlet malls, antiques, & flea markets in the area. Plan a day to go ice skating at Ober in nearby Gatlinburg. We love to picnic in Cades Cove while enjoying nature & wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the kind words about our cabin & the Fire Flies, that is the best part of the day in the summer for enjoying the sunset on the deck. We always try to make our guest feel as if our home is there home. It has been a blessing to have your family as our guest. We believe God gave us this cabin, so that we can be a blessing to others. Thanks again and hope to see you'll soon.

35th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 35 Anniversary here it a beautiful decorated cabin and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. The area is beautiful and it a quiet area we have stayed in this area before numerous times and we really love this area.

The cabin has a large deck just right for sitting out and just listening to nature or cooking on the grill and enjoying your meals on.

The owners are very proud of their cabin and they have a right too. This cabin was named perfect" A Peaceful Retreat" because this is exactly what it is.......

Owner's Response: We want to to thank the "Smith's for sharing there anniversay memories with us at our cabin "A Peaceful Retreat". We have put a lot of thought and prayer in our cabin when we built it. I must say that my wife is the creative person with her artistic mind and my ability to help her to bring this ideals to life. She is also the person who pay's close attention (maybe OCD) to all the details of the needs of our guest. I must also say that we have an outstanding housekeeper who is also OCD which is great for our guest, as they always have an extremely clean cabin when they arrive. She also a very sweet Christian lady that loves the Lord. Again we are blessed to have such great guess to share our home with. Many Blessings Ted & Pam

A wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We took a spontaneous trip to Pigeon Forge for a 3 day weekend. My family and I loved the cabin and the owners were very responsive to questions. Check-in and out was simple. The cabin is beautiful and waking up in the loft to the beautiful mountain view was such a blessing. We will be back for sure. Location is secluded but not too far into the mountains making it easy to get in and out to take the kids to activities in Pigeon Forge. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Awesome Cabin Stay

  • 5 of 5

"A Peaceful Retreat" the name say's it all. This cabin was extremely clean, and anything we could think of was furnished. The cabin is decorated very creatively, the property was all walkable and the fire pit was perfectly located. The evening and morning view is relaxing and beautiful. The deck was large and spacious. The hot tub was awesome on those chilly nights. Everything was just perfect. Also the claw foot tub was perfect for relaxing and enjoying a good wine while my husband sang me a song.
