Walden’s View is in a private, elevated location with beautiful mountain views and glimpses of the lush valley below. It is perfect for a couple or a small family.
It is a true log cabin with all-wood tongue and groove interior and salvaged wood floors, a cathedral ceiling and wood spiral staircase. The kitchen boasts reclaimed barnwood cabinetry and stainless appliances. Not an inch of sheetrock, wall to wall carpeting or ceiling tiles! There is no place quite like it.
From the front deck you can listen to the tree frogs, or hear an occasional moo from a cow or gobble from a wild turkey in the valley below. Fireflies light the summer night sky and the scent of honeysuckle fills the air in the spring.
In the living room you can curl up in front of the wood-burning stone fireplace on the sleeper sofa. Entertainment includes a 42” plasma tv with satellite and Blu-ray.
The cozy queen bedroom is on the main level and has an LCD flat screen satellite tv. The main level has a full bathroom with shower/tub combination as well as a separate half bath.
The circular staircase leads to the loft where you can play pool while watching the game on a flatscreen tv. A second bedroom and bath with shower are also upstairs. This bedroom provides a twin over full futon bunk bed, with a very comfortable deluxe futon mattress, and a flatscreen tv with Wii.
The front deck offers a gas grill. Return from a busy day at Dollywood or from hiking through the Park, turn on the string lights and some music, grill a steak, pour a drink and relax in the hot tub!
From “Walden’s View” you can be in Pigeon Forge in less than 25 minutes for all the action, or go to the quieter side, where you’ll find Cades Cove and an entrance to the National Park. In either direction the drive through the valley is stunning. Walden’s Creek Stables is just one mile away for horseback riding and western shows during the summer months. Whaley’s, an upscale grocery store, is just 6 miles away!
We live 4 hours from our cabin, so our friends at 'Great Cabins in the Smokies' manage the property locally. This means you can rest assured there is local assistance if you have any problems.
The cabin also has wireless internet.
Note: Our cabin is at the top of the road, which is what provides such a nice view. It is pretty steep and is a private road that is mostly gravel (portions are paved). A four wheel drive is recommended. But just so you know, we've zipped up and down the road for years in a Honda Odyssey minivan. :) It's scary the first time and then less scary each time thereafter.
