About David & Peggy Carpenter

We live and work in Nashville, Tennessee, but the Smoky Mountains have long been our getaway place where we find peace and serenity away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We have tried to create a place where you could be comfortable, relax, and unwind. We hope that you will come to love and enjoy the beauty of the mountains as much we do.

David & Peggy Carpenter purchased this cabin in 2010

Why David & Peggy Carpenter chose East

We wanted to buy a cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains. When we were looking for a cabin to buy we wanted one that would provide all the comforts of home, would be private, and yet would be located conveniently to all the attractions that brought us to the area in the first place.

What makes this cabin unique

Carpe' Diem is a getaway providing luxury accommodations at a reasonable price. You will rest on pillow top mattresses, covered with soft down comforters, relax in the hot tub and recline in plush house robes. There are a lot of accommodation choices in the area...but you won't find one that has been more lovingly designed for your comfort.

The pic online made it seem like it was flat ground to the front door but it was relatively steep. With 2 disabled people in our party that was an issue. It was neat and orderly and cute inside, but a further look showed it wasn't very clean. Dust was falling off the ceiling fans. Dead roaches. And the shower wasn't cleaned... that was gross. It's reasonable to expect bathrooms to be spotless. And the sheets smelled so strong of detergent it gave us headaches... like the bedding was washed but not rinsed thoroughly. The cabin worked but we were expecting more. Just seemed like it was a half-hearted attempt to get ready for the next renters.

Perfect little getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed 4 days at the Beautiful Cabin in the Smokies. I have to say it was even better than it looked in the photos. Even privacy and quiet area to relax and unwind from the real world. Only five minutes from Wears Valley Road and ten minutes from Pigeon Forge, everything we wanted to do was pretty close to us. Would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

Well maintained and very peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Smoky Cove was wonderful. The cabin was perfect for two couples. Beds were so comfortable and the cabin was furnished with all the things you would need. We were super close to PigeonForge for entertainment as well. Definitely would recommend this hidden treasure for a get away!

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent here. The only thing keeping it from getting 5 stars would be the lack of glassware and lighting. Other than that, the cabin is excellent. Comfortable furniture and beds, nice hot tub, and relaxing porch! Easy and quick access to the parkway. Thank you for opening your cabin up to us, we will be back next year!! Happy New Year!!!

When there was nothing to worry about!

  • 4 of 5

We were genuinely impressed and satisfied with our cabin carpe diem. It was located at a great location. Gave off a very cozy feel as well. I would definitely stay in this cabin again. There were only 2 negatives we found with this and they are very minute There were very few tv channels and the wifi doesn't seem to work. However these negatives produced a positive and helped take worldly things out of our lives while on vacation. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your cabin and we look forward to staying with you again in the future.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you were comfortable and enjoyed your stay at our cabin, and we look forward to having you stay with us in the future. We are confused about the comment of not having many tv channels and issues with the internet. There should have been over 100 TV channels available to you and the internet DEFINITELY should have been working. Sometimes if the power is disrupted by bad weather we have to 'reboot' the modem to reconnect things. We apologize for that inconvenience, in the future PLEASE always give us a call about any issue and we will make sure everything is taken care of.
