About Charles & Bess Kirby

My husband, a native Tennessean, and I, a Mississippi girl, met in Nashville, TN where we both were attending Trevecca University. Though we did not grow up in the mountains, we’ve fallen in love with those SMOKY MOUNTAINS of East Tennessee. While celebrating our wedding anniversary a few years ago in a log cabin around Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge, we decided to buy some cabins. We did; and, we’ve not been sorry. We book ourselves in our Majestic View cabins as often as we can. Our kids & grandkids love to go. We hope you’ll enjoy our cabins, and will keep coming back year after year.

Charles & Bess Kirby purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Charles & Bess Kirby chose East

We chose to buy vacation rentals in the great SMOKY MOUNTAINS, because of the natural beauty, the National Park, the black bears, the high mountain views, and the endless recreation possibilities.

What makes this cabin unique

When we're at our cabins, we enjoy seeing the sights, taking in some of the shows, eating out at the great restaurants, looking for those black bear or deer, driving in the National Park looking at the majestic vistas, shopping at the outlets, & relaxing on the deck. We've even hiked in the National Park; in fact, there's so much to do, you just have to experience it for yourself.

Wonderful cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was perfect! Cozy but roomy and would be perfect for a small family, couple, or even 2 couples traveling together. Very updated furnishings. Nice view of the mountains through the trees on the roomy porch. Although we didn't use it the kitchen was nicely stocked with basic cooking essentials and there's a wood burning fireplace with wood provided outside. In our case we were in town for an event in Pigeon Forge and to tour Gatlinburg/Seviereville. It was a minimum of 45 minute (25 mile) drive plus traffic every time we wanted to do something, some drives taking closer to 1.5 hours one way. The Kirbys did provide "quicker back road" directions. These directions matched what was on our gps and was not a 25 minute drive as they state. If you're there to be off the beaten path and enjoy the scenery you couldn't ask for a better place.

Great view, helpful owners, close to everything.

We stayed in this cabin and throughout the four days we were here we were never more than an hour away from any attraction. The cabin was very clean and roomy and the owners are awesome. I will visit again.

Wonderful stay at Snuggled-In Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation at the cabin in the Smoky Mountains! It was wonderful. I love the little cabin, and it had everything we needed. It was cozy and comfortable with brand new kitchen applicances and new carpet! The cabin was very clean. We saw a doe and two fawns... three out of the five nights we were there close to the cabin. I had the chance to meet the Kirby's while vacationing at their cabin. They are some of the nicest people you could ever meet! This was my second time to stay here, and I know I will be back again in the future. Thanks to the Kirby's for such a nice and relaxing place to stay.

Nice Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I loved this cabin for a relaxing mountain vacation! I loved sitting out on the porch sipping on my coffee in the morning just like the description says. We stayed in Snuggled Inn, which had a lovely view, but the view from the Stargazer Cabin looked more open. It was just the two of us, but the cabin could easily fit more. I loved having lots of kitchen utensils available. If you do you use the oven, be aware that it heated up a lot faster than our own stove at home which resulted in a crispy dinner, but just keep an eye on it.

The process of booking was so easy. And when our receipt didn't arrive in the mail Bess emailed us a copy the next day to make sure we had it in time. We arrived later than expected, so it was dark out which made me nervous, but Google Maps took us directly to the cabin and Bess' detailed map was also extremely helpful. Cosby was a good spot for exploring the park. We absolutely loved the Carver Apple Restaurant, just 5 minutes away. If you're into hiking, check out the Big Creek trail in North Carolina, but just a short drive from the cabin. The leaves were just starting to change colors when we left, so now we're already planning ahead for our next visit!
