Our first impression was how beautiful the setting was and neat and clean the cabin was. :)

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay for our four days in the Great Smokey Mountains with our grown children!!! The view was breathtaking and the cabin was ultra clean. There was plenty of room for eating, playing games, talking, and just relaxing. It was just a short drive to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park and services and restaurants in town were easily accessible. The owners were a joy to talk with :)

Nice place, not quiet and peaceful!

  • 3 of 5

Nice view, nice home, well located, very clean, well furnished... however it was not quiet and peaceful. Maybe it was the time of the year but the traffic on the road below the place was constant and loud. We were there in October, a little before the leaves were turning. The home was geographically well located giving us access to all the things we wanted to do and was very comfortable to back to after a day of hiking, but the noise of the traffic below from early morning to late at night was annoying.

Great location and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing from the back porch each morning and evening.

There was plenty of room with ample privacy for our family. Ourselves, our two sons and wives. Our granddaughter loved her loft bedroom!

The kitchen was well stocked with utensils! Little shampoos and soaps were especially nice.

We had an issue with the water supply due to a pump failure. Jerry was so prompt to help and all was fixed as quickly as possible.

Ample parking for three vehicles.

We had memorable family trip. Thank you!

Owner's Response: So happy you and your family enjoyed your stay. Really appreciate the kind words and understanding regarding the water issue. We share 2 wells with 6 other cabins and sometimes issues arise. Hope to rent to you again.

Very Nice! Convenient Location! Incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for my family to stay and enjoy the Smokey Mountains. The owners Jerry and Carol are very nice. The cabin was very clean. It is located in a convenient location to visit Cades Cove, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinberg. There is a handful of small stores and restaurants within a few miles. For me it was a good balance of being part of nature but not too isolated. The view from the cabin is amazing! I would definitely stay there again!

Nice Cabin

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was nice and the view off of the deck was beautiful! We were a bit disappointed that the gas for the grill appeared to be empty and there wasn't any shampoo or conditioner in the main cabin, although there was a lot of lotion and soap so this may have been an oversight. Also, any walking or movement upstairs was very loud in the main floor bedroom. Overall, however, it was a nice stay.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the problems you encountered. I always ask my renters to let me know immediately if there are any issues that need attention. Will make sure the cleaners check the propane and have ample shampoos out.

Perfect for what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin to have a place near a wedding venue, rather than traveling back home late at night. The house is laid out very nicely for something like this and provided ample room for several people to get ready simultaneously. Had exactly what we needed for the weekend. Nice kitchen to work with too. Jerry was great to work with and very responsive with our questions. The property is extremely well maintained and the view off the back deck is amazing!
