About the property

Private Cabin, 3 Bedroom, 3 Baths, + Sleeper Sofa (Sleeps 8)

Storyteller is located in the heart of Wears Valley. Wears Valley is the gateway to the Smoky Mountain National Park, Pigeon Forge, Townsend and a short drive through scenic mountain roads into Gatlinburg.

Our cabin is privately nestled on 1.5 acres in Cove Mountain. There is plenty of private parking on our driveway. In just about any seat on our wrap around balcony, you will experience the breathtaking panoramic view of The Smoky Mountains. Enjoy the sounds of nature and you may catch wild jack rabbits, raccoons, and can spot a bear around too!. The smell of fresh mountain air and pine will relax even the most stressed city slickers. Our cabin is pet friendly with approval. A non-refundable pet fee of $65-$85 applies for pet rentals.

Built in 2005, Storyteller makes a perfect retreat for the entire family or group of friends. With a sofa-bed in the living area, we can accommodate up to 8 ADULTS. TVs and DVD players are located in every room. You will enjoy the fireplace and our movie collection if you stay in any night. All TVs are equipped with cable. We provide everything you will need to cook up your Tennessee meal in our kitchen. There is a charcoal BBQ out on the balcony for an Ole Smoky cookout. Roast marshmallows in our gazebo around the built-in gas fire-pit and make sure to share a story or 2. You'll love sitting out there drinking hot chocolate in the winter months while the firepit warms you up!

The playroom downstairs is home to a billiards table, wet bar with built-in fridge. Area is big for an air mattress and 2 additional guests. Air mattress not provided. Watch your favorite game on TV while you battle it out for the Storyteller billiards championship; we have had all-nighter tournaments! After a long day sightseeing in the Smokies or shopping at the Pigeon Forge outlets, relax and soak up in the outdoor hot tub under the stars.

Stay with us and you also get a personal travel planner; we will provide you with all the best attractions, restaurants, and activities. For the bikers, the local Harley Davidson shop is just 11 miles from our cabin in Pigeon Forge on light #3. If you prefer to fly n ride, you can rent a motorcycle at the Harley Davidson or at EagleRiders of Knoxville. Just ask us and we will be glad to provide all the details. Go skiing/snowboarding in Ober Gatlinburg or Cataloochee (Maggie Vally, NC). Explore Cades Cove, Tuckaleechee Cavens, Clingman's Dome, or gamble at the Harrah's Casino in Cherokee, NC. Ready for some thrills, go white water rafting. The Biltmore Estate is also a short drive away. They have a great winery and Estate tour. Just ask, we will give you great travel ideas during your stay with us!

We love dogs and allow them in our the cabin with a pet cleaning fee. Please include breed and weight at booking. The cabin is smoke free, you may smoke outside provided that you pick up after yourself ; no buds on the lawn or anywhere else please. No fireworks allowed.

Enjoy roasting marshmallows out on the balcony's built-in fire pit overlooking the Smokies or stay in to watch one of the many movies from the video collection.

Feel like having a home made BBQ? We have that too. Cook on our charcoal BBQ while you soak in the mountain view.

Tired after a long day at nearby Dollywood or from a long day hiking at near-by Smoky Mountain National Park? We have an outdoor hot tub waiting for you to relax those tired muscles.

About Angel and Mabel Rivera

We are hardworking professionals who enjoy the city life and enjoy escaping to the mountains as much as we can. We enjoy riding our motorcycle, ballroom dancing, and traveling. We have 2 miniature schnauzers.

Angel and Mabel Rivera purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Angel and Mabel Rivera chose Sevierville

We have enjoyed coming to the Smokies for over 17 years and worked hard to finally purchase Storyteller. We remember the realtor taking us around town to see cabins but the minute we walked into Storyteller, we were hooked. The gazebo is what gave us the idea to call the cabin Storyteller. Our families were used to gathering for hours on end and telling stories about life, funny moments, and stories they wanted us to remember and pass on.

What makes this cabin unique

When staying at Storyteller, we enjoy the scenery of the mountains, rafting, shopping, but most of all doing nothing at all; just relaxing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Storyteller cabin. Great, private location with amazing views. It was decorated very nicely and provided tons of space for my family and I to hang out and enjoy our time together. Thank you for sharing your special place with us!

Wonderful owners

  • 4 of 5

The owners are so nice and easy to get ahold of, quick to respond to any needs or questions. We didnt realize how steep the drive is after getting in the subdivision. (Almost 500ft in .5 mile) I'll be honest and say it was a bit scary and we weren't sure our van would make it. Especially since it was raining, and there were cars that didnt in front of us. Just something to keep in mind. But the cabin itself is nestled nicely in a slightly wooded area with a decent partial view of the mountains. Master bed did not sleep well and Owners may consider new pillows, or bring your own. :) Nice that all bedrooms had their own bath. No one had to share. I thought the cabin would be closer to activities. It was almost 40 minutes to gatlinburg or pigeon forge. The address says sevierville but its more in townsend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us! We prepare a check-in email explaining that we are located on a loop road which provides 2 options to drive into our driveway/cabin. Via Possum Ridge you take the steep road up which we do all the time in any rental car and drives right into our driveway. If you take Raccoon Hollow, there is no steep road up just curves which we take up in motorcycles every year and you make a left turn into driveway via this road. We advise that if you are not familiar with mountain roads, then take Raccoon Hollow and come down Possum Ridge. The nice thing is we have 2 roads into our property. We are heading up now in July and will evaluate the pillows. Unfortunately, we find that the nice pillows dissappear and we come in quarterly. As for our location, we are 25 minutes to Gatlinburg via the Metcalf Bottoms entrance to the Smokies vs going via the Parkway and/or Pigeon Forge which can be extremely congested. We are lucky that we have a beautiful backroad to avoid all the traffic of Pigeon Forge and enjoy the scenic drive instead. This entrance is via Line Springs Road just 2 miles from our cabin which is in Sevierville. Pigeon Forge is 12 miles exactly via Wears Valley Road Hwy 321. If it took 40 minutes, then there must have been quite a bit of traffic in the area. Again, we wanted a place that would feel you are away from it all yet close enough to where you can still have access to city like activities...However, our area has grown so much last 3 years. All nature related activies like tubing, horseback riding, ziplining, hiking are all within 2 miles from us. Thanks again for staying with us!!! Hope we can have you back again.
