About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (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.

Built in 2005, Storyteller makes a perfect retreat for the entire family or group of friends. With a sofabed in the living area, we can accomodate 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 firepit 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. 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.

Keywords: A private cabin decorated for Christmas all year long.

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 3 dogs; a beagle and 2 miniature schnauzers.

Angel and Mabel Rivera purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Angel and Mabel Rivera chose East

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 Stroyteller, we enjoy the scenery of the mountains, rafting, shopping, but most of all doing nothing at all; just kicking it back and relaxing.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the cozy cabin. We couldn't wait to use the fire pit; however, we never used it once! We were always too tired in the evening from all of the things to do in the area. The fireplace inside was awesome for early morning coffee and late night television.

The property is very well maintained and spacious. We really enjoyed the cabin this time and cooked every night. We enjoyed the rafting, but more so the eclipse. This was by far our best vacation in Tennessee.

Nice but needs a few pickups

  • 4 of 5

The dryer did not work!! Tried to do laundry but after 5 times drying on high at 120 minutes each time and they were still wet we decided to give up 😁 Found a scorpion in the bedroom right by the bed! And the driveway is VERY narrow and scary lol! Other than that it was a great stay. My family and I had a wonderful time... ohh and definitely should accommodate a group staying a week a lot more with garbage

Owner's Response: Thank you guys for taking the time to submit a review! We appreciate it. We recently replaced the dryer on May 8, 2017 just 3 months ago. Although the dryer is extra large, it is best to wash small loads during your stay instead of 1 extra large load towards the end of the stay. We had our housekeeping check it and it worked just fine. Since you mentioned 120 minutes...could it be you were setting wrinkle control instead of the knob with dryer time? The 120 minute setting is on the wrinkle control knob and this does not heat up at the "high" heat level since items are supposed to already be dry. Maybe this was the issue? Yes, you will come across critters in the mountains! :) We have Arrow Pest service our cabin monthly to spray. The Smoky Mountains has all sorts of bugs and you will see these and many other critters. We surely have seen them but they either dead or groggy. Not sure I understand why the driveway would seem narrow as we have a very wide and paved driveway as seen in our property pictures on page. We have 2 full size garbage cans in metal cage. We don"t have county garbage pickup or public dumpsters for private cabins. We let guests know upfront about this and let you know where you can take any excess garbage during your stay. Our housekeeping can also come out to haul your garbage at anytime for a fee if you prefer to have it picked up at your convenience. Thank you for staying with us!!

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this cabin with our family. Loved that we could have our dog (who is family) with us. Very impressed that there was even a yard for him to play in. Beautiful cabin. Thank you for letting us enjoy it.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than wonderful for our family of six. The kids loved the pool table, the jacuzzi and the fire pit. We loved the chairs on the balcony. The view was obstructed by some trees (a couple dead), but it was a great view of the mountains. The cabin was clean and everything we needed was there. We were planning to do laundry at the cabin, but after the dryer took three hours for one load we decided to wait until we got home. The kitchen was well equipped and the dining table is gorgeous. Furniture was comfortable and fit in with the cabin feel. We look forward to visiting again!

Beautiful and Very Cozy

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your cabin. Unfortunately we tried to cram too many activities into our short stay. Didn't spend much time in the cabin, but it was very beautiful and away from everything. Thank you for making our trip memorable.
