Overview

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.

Nice but with some issues

  • 2 of 5

The cabin looks nice and the view was great but there were some issues with several things, the biggest issue is that the cabin needs a good cleaning. For example the decorations were extremely dusty and the items on the kitchen counters had a greasy/dusty film on them. The sheets for the trundle bed were shoved into a pillow case like they were dirty and there was no soap for the washing machine. This made one of our guest question if the rest of the bedding was clean (they are a bit OCD ) and caused them a lot of stress. The second issue we had was that we had 7 people on the reservation so we would need to use the trundle bed and the sofa bed, I never found sheets for the sofa and it took 3 adults to pull the trundle out. The bed was coming apart in a couple of places and one of the poles for the canopy was not screwed in properly and came out if you leaned on the support pole. Thankfully my son has a hard head and when it hit him it did no damage. Thirdly there was no soap in any of the bathrooms for the showers, this would not be a big deal if it was noted in the description but it is not, it actually states that small bars of soap are provided. The kitchen table is not useful for dinning especially if you have children the surface is not flat and drinks easily tip over.

Also the directions for checking out need to be clarified we found 2 different sets of directions in the cabin that contradicted each other and got a third set via email. We ended up picking one to follow... hopefully the correct one.

Maybe I have too high a standard but with all the 5 star reviews I was expecting a much smoother stay.

Owner's Response: We are very surprised to receive this review. We do our best to maintain it very clean and with many more amenities than any other cabin in the valley while still being priced below all other properties. We advise guests that we provide a basic starter kit such as hand soap, plenty dishwasher cubes, dish liquid, garbage bags, toilet and paper towel to get you started. We don't provide bath soaps or detergent for guests and advise to bring their own. The sheets for sofa bed are always in the closet in the main level and were still there today after checkout. The sheets for trundle were there and in the sham and asked housekeeping to ensure they put it on when we know we will have a full house as we include the number of guests to housekeeping. We are up here for the holidays and personally reviewing your comments. Our place is located on a loop road so you can technically come up 2 ways/roads. We always suggest the 1st option so you drive right into driveway and don't have to make any turns to get in. We keep our place homey and rustic. The dining table is a handmade piece by a local craftsman. We have tablecloths to put over and smooth the surface. It's part of the feel. We appreciate your feedback and have asked housekeeping to place sheets for sofa right on it for future and no misunderstanding.

A beautiful location close to all of the amenities

  • 4 of 5

The property was gorgeous and the view was spectacular! There was enough room for all of us to spread out. I'm only giving it a 4 rating because if we would if had all 10 of our party show up, I don't know where they would have slept. I recommend a futon or some type of sitting in the pool room. I wish the hot tub would of gotten hotter than 97 degrees, but we still thoroughly enjoyed it. The owners were gracious enough to assist us with getting the fireplace going again (easy fix). I would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and review! We highly appreciate it!. The hot tub must have been on sleep or economy mode as it goes to that after sometime (2 days or so) from being closed to conserve energy. Next time, let us know to show you where to change that back to normal and it would be at 102 in not time like we did with the fireplace! As far as capacity, our cabin description states that it sleeps 8 with max capacity of 10. Our bed description lists beds for 8. We welcome 2 more additional guests because it is roomy and you can sleep on air mattresses (not provided) in game room or living room.

The Storyteller Cabin Did Not Disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

I had volumes I wanted to write about our stay in this epic "little slice of Heaven" owned by two very kind, considerate, and accommodating owners (i.e., Angel & Mabel) ... but I decided instead to keep it simple. (But first ... THANKS ANGEL & MABEL!!)

Our Story: EPIC! Perfect atmosphere and location to kick back and be surrounded by awe! This cabin truly was the hardest rental to have to say "goodbye" to of any we've rented in either the GSMNP or any rental at the beach! Coming from a 57 and 60 yr old couple who are hard core mountain/ocean lovers ... that speaks volumes. Love and Laughter was had by all, and we'll live more happily forever after because of our stay at The Storyteller!

The End.

WE'LL BE BACK!! PEACE AND BE BLESSED Y'ALL!!
