About Mike & Dawn Jankowski

We are the owners and caretakers of this beautiful home. We enjoy this cabin as our vacation home as well and try to provide our guests with all the comforts and conveniences of home and then some!

Mike & Dawn Jankowski purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Mike & Dawn Jankowski chose Smoky Mountains

This cabin was built at this location for its convenience to downtown Murphy without compromising the unbelievable views and privacy available. All within a gated community.

What makes this cabin unique

We love to sit on the deck and look out at the breathtaking views of the mountains. We always have a ton of fun with our family and friends because of all the amenities the cabin has to offer. There is plenty of room in the home and even if there is more than our family, we have lots of room to stretch out and not constantly be under each other's feet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the floor plan - the cabin is so spacious and the lower level game room is so big and well-equipped. And the view is just the most gorgeous we have ever seen. We woke up in the morning to the “lake and island” effect of the fog. I have never seen anything like that before and we were both enthralled with this picture. The owners were most pleasant and enjoyable to deal with!

Thanks again for renting to us. We were very impressed and enjoyed everything about your mountain home.

Beyond Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really needed a complete retreat and we found it in this beautiful home. Everything was perfect for our family. The horse-themed bedroom with 2 twin beds was something right out of a story book for our 2 girls=11 & 13 years old. Our 2 older boys (15 & 17) spent hours competing against each other on the variety of games in the basement.Our college-aged daughter was able to utilize the room on the main floor to find peaceful rest after studying for hours on the deck for an upcoming internship

How you were these owners able to find the decorative bears & moose that filled this cabin?

No detail was left unattended-from the paper towel bear-topper to those on the lamp shades and even the etchings on one of the windows—incredible!

We recapped our experience in one of the journals we found (what a great idea-to have a journal)

While we explored the surrounding area, even going out to Fire Creek Falls and then later to Joyce Kilmer, eventually viewing the lookouts on the Cherohala Skyway, nothing compared to the view at this home.

We are Midwesterner/flat-landers and had no issues negotiating the slopes and angles of the roads and drive-ways getting to & fro from this beautiful property with our 15 passenger-extended van. While there is some 'steepness' with this part of the USA, it's completely drive-able. Overall, dealing with the owners is great. Stop looking anywhere else. Reserve here. Hot Tub. Grill, Decks, Fire Ring & Plenty of room for a diverse group of multiple ages=perfection.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Probably the most beautiful view ive even seen. The cabin is in a great location about 20 minutes away from everything you need. The cabin was very well taken care of. The drive up can get pretty steep but well worth it for the view!

Looking for a place with mtn views? This is it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Christmas and had an absolutely wonderful time. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the game room, and it kept them busy on a couple of the rainy days there. The views are some of the most memorable I've ever seen. That first time you walk out on the front porch is truly stunning! We made a day trip over to Gatlinburg to do some activities at Ober Gatlinburg... it was about a 2 1/2 hour drive but every second of that drive was filled with wonderful scenery. We also took in downtown Murphy. They had several neat stores and we found some good places to eat.

One side note: If you're afraid of heights you will need to put on your big boy pants. I have that fear and I'm not sure I ever got comfortable driving up that mountain... but if I can do it so can you!

Awesome Property!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay! Can't say enough about this property! The views are amazing! The cabin had the perfect amount of space for us. We had 5 kids and 5 adults. The kids loved the game room. We loved the small town of Murphy. We did lots of hiking. The Great Smoky Railroad was our favorite thing to do. Beautiful ride there. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Loved it once again!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay. Everything was just as great as the first time with the exception of the weather.one morning we woke up to find an iced fairyland outside.my little Honda CRX made it out fine that day. The house was just as great as it was the first time three years ago. We had a four yr old with us and he loved all of the bear decorating theme. We picked a really cold and rainy time to go,but there was plenty to keep us busy inside. Thanks for sharing this great house with everyone.

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic week at this beautiful home in July. Our family of 6 enjoyed the breathtaking views, the adorable bear themed decorating, and the fun game room which provided our kids hours of entertainment. The home is beautiful and clean, and we all slept well in the cozy bedrooms. It is clear the owners have taken great attention to detail in every room. The owners were very responsive and returned the security deposit promptly. It was very peaceful location. We enjoyed staying in to relax, renting a boat at nearby Lake Chatuge, and July 4 fireworks in Downtown Murphy! It was an awesome week. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home. It was a very memorable week for our family.
