About Kathy Gothard

We enjoyed visiting the Smokies during my husband’s career in the United States Navy. After his retirement we believed the area was a perfect halfway point of distance between our extended families. Upon settling here we decided to extend ourselves into the realm of cabin ownership. We wanted opportunity to share our love of the area and hospitality with others. We both enjoy photography & the Smokies fits the bill for such!

Kathy Gothard purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Kathy Gothard chose East

The historical symbolism of the log cabin as well as the unique cottage look drew our interest. I suggest you check out the wikipedia site about the log cabin history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Log_cabin

What makes this cabin unique

There is a front porch as well as a back covered deck. The enlarged deck has old fashioned rocking chairs. There is an unusual extension of deck in the shape of a gazebo with a picnic table. To me the most memorable feature of Appalachian Songbird is the body of a tree in raw form used as part of the staircase! I only wish I knew of this tree's history.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Kathy for sharing your home with us....My kidos loved it and so did we. It not only was beautiful but close to all the area events. It was a nice getaway after losing both my parents to cancer...My family really needed the quiet time and relaxation.

Sweet Cabin

Very clean and cozy. Close enough to all amenities, but still quiet. Would go back.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have visited this area many times and it is one of our favorite destinations. We have rented cabins before but this was our first stay at Appalachian Songbird. From the moment we walked in the door we loved the feel. It is a beautiful cabin, in a great location. It took us about 10 minutes to get to Dollywood or to the heart of the parkway in Pigeon Forge. We hope to be able to visit again soon. I think we have a new favorite lodging! Kathy, thank you for sharing your cabin with us. We certainly enjoyed our stay.

Did not want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Secluded and peaceful, this cabin's location also was in proximity of our other destinations in the business districts allowing for less time driving and more time relaxing. Rustic log interior included an upstairs bedroom and Jacuzzi / bath. The only caveats we encountered were that the thin upstairs flooring featured no insulating properties to mute goings on to the bedroom below. Also would encourage the owners to warn future guests that the hot water (probably due to the volume needed to fill the Jacuzzi) reaches scalding ranges rather quickly. Otherwise, guests will find the kitchen has everything including dishes and cooking accessories ... just bring your own vittles ... and have an enjoyable stay.

Great little cabin

  • 4 of 5

Great little cabin! All of the amenities that you need. It's close to town but feels like it's deep I'm the woods. We will rent again.

Perfect vacation cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family couldn't have picked a better cabin for our mountain vacation. Everything we needed was available to us and, in addition, the cabin was even decorated for the fall season. We will be back!!

The was had everything that we needed plus it was in a great neighbor hood. Beautiful!! Will be there next year for sure. Once again Thank You for letting us staying at such a great area plus the cabin was wonderful.
