About Mark and Lillie Large

I am a counselor/therapist and my wife, Lillie, is an elementary school teacher. We have 3 wonderful children and 2 fabulous grandchildren.

Mark and Lillie Large purchased this house in 2011

Why Mark and Lillie Large chose East

I spent many summers as a boy on my grandfather's farm located just below this property. There I learned to love nature and these mountains. My wife and I decided to share with others this special place that means so much to our family.

What makes this house unique

It's located just across the road from a riding stable, petting zoo, and free community partk. It's just down the road from the Smoky Mountain Zip Line.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Great 4 generation weekend reunion

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to gather. Lots of room inside and out. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Loved it. 21 years of reunions in Pigeon Forge. This is the best place we have ever stayed. Perfect for 85 year old grandparents. Great for 5, 9, and 10 year old great granddaughters.

Staying at Mountain House is like going to Grandma's!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week visiting Mountain House! No, it's not one if those fancy new cabins, but if you are looking for a quieter, real house in the Smokies, this is it. We had a few minor issues (house quirks) that have been resolved and did nothing to ruin our trip. With three bedrooms on the main floor and a ramp, while not completely ADA accessible, it was accessible enough for those who had trouble with stairs. We were also only 8 minutes from everything in Pigeon Forge!

My son left his tablet in the house when we left and Mike was heading up to fix the house quirks when I called them. We just live in Knoxville and Mike graciously met us only a mile from home so we wouldn't have to drive back.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

First, I want to thank Mark and Lillie for sharing their beautiful home!! The pictures on this site don't do the home justice, it is beautiful!! This was a 4 generation trip for my family, ages 6 to 72, and no one wanted to leave here! Having all of us together under one roof was a blessing we will all remember. Now, for the house. It had everything we needed, with the exception of personal items and food. Truly, it has everything you need. We did make a trip to Walmart to pick up some items, extra paper towels and toilet tissue, just in case, but we didn't need them. The bedrooms are very large and the beds super comfy. Everyone enjoyed the pool table, there were some games for the Xbox that they enjoyed, even the adults! The home was very clean and well taken care of, only thing we found that was different from home was the water pressure, but that was expected from having a well. (I grew up with one) Everything worked as far as appliances and Thank God for the air conditioning and box fan! Plenty of towels and such for all of us! Sitting out front on the porch swing and watching the sun come up over the trees was so relaxing. I truly can't think of anything that wasn't there that we might have needed. This home has it all and we intend on staying here again when going to the area. The only suggestion I can think of to improve this visit would be a ceiling fan on the front porch. I will be recommending this home to any off my friends and family that come to the area!! Again, thank you Mark and Lillie, your home is beautiful and no one wanted to leave!!!!

Very Satisfied!

  • 5 of 5

Wow just got home yesterday and really miss this house. The pictures do not do this house justice. Much larger than it seems through the pictures. I would highly recommend this house to anyone with a large group or family. I've been going to the area for 16 years now and have never rented from people that were as nice and helpful as Mark and Lillie. As long as I can fill up the rooms I will be looking for this house first. Thank you so much and you will be hearing from me again for another rental. Loved it!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin and would definitely would rent this cabin again. We had nine adults and one child that stayed at the cabin. We rented this cabin for the weekend for mine and my husbands vow renewal ceremony in Gatlinburg. The 4000 sq ft cabin was plenty of room for everyone. The beds were very comfortable and the owners were very pleasant to work with and communicate with. The cabin made us feel at home. Everyone in our party was taken back by the beauty of the cabin and its surroundings as well as how much room we had. This was all around a great experience. I would definitely recommend this cabin for anyone looking for a nice getaway place for a large or somewhat large party. Great experience.
