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.

Cabin was amazing. The only complain I have is the TV only has 10 channels or so. But other than it it's perfect!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was very nice! The entire cabin was clean and instructions made it easy to get in upon arrival. Hot tub was very nice, and it was evident the water was changed before we came because it still needed time to heat up, which we appreciated. Pool in neighborhood was also nice and clean. Cabin was seculeded enough, but still within a few minutes of town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come back in the future. Our only recommendation for improvement would be that the cabin needs an ice cream scooper :)

The home was absolutely beautiful. Fully furnished with linens, appliances, dishes, etc. most of our time was spent on the spacious porches. There are a few things that could be changed. First, the grill is too close to the tree. We were a little worried about setting it ablaze. Second, the pool table is not level, did not have good sticks, no chalk and not a lot of room to play. Third, the televisions did not have many channels to choose from. In the upstairs bedroom, I believe 10 channels were authorized, so not many choices. Otherwise, our stay was great! I would recommend this place and I would stay again.

Great stay, great amenities, close to all the attractions.

  • 5 of 5

It's a cozy cabin with room for two couples and a couple of kids. The couples can stay in the bedrooms and the kids can stay on a pullout in the living room. Kitchen has all the applicances and although it's a little small, we were able to cook a couple of meals for the 6 of us and a baby. There weren't a lot of channels on the tv for late at night after all the fun in Pigeon Forge. However, I have to tell you, it's a great value!

Weekend Getaway

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we had a nice time at Carpe Diem. When we first got there we had a hard time with the internet and TV but the owners were very responsive in helping us get that fixed. It was a great size for four adults, and the hot tub and pool table were nice additions. There's a few things I would say need improving, the bathrooms weren't as clean as I would have liked them to be (bath tubs and sink had some residue in them), the bed covers upstairs weren't all the way clean, and then the entire cabin was very dusty (I have bad allergies so it was very noticeable for me). Other than some cleaning issues, we had a nice time.

Owner's Response: I'm very surprised at there comments here, we pride ourselves in having a very clean cabin. I inspected our cabin personally and I know for a fact it was clean up on there arrival. we talked to them several times and they never said anything about it not being clean as we would have sent our cleaning lady back to the cabin to corrected the issues, and have since then sent her over there to do a deep cleaning again. I'm sorry these people wouldn't identify themselves here and felt this way.
