About Kevin & Pip Maas

My name is Kevin Maas . I am the son of a highy decorated Marine Corps fighter pilot ace in WWII and Korea. I was born in Cherry Point , NC and settled in Fredericksburg, Virginia in the late 1960's. After retiring from the retail corporate world after 38 years, my wife Pip and I decided to invest in one of our favorite places in the entire United States. We both have been coming to this area for years to enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains and have met many good friends here in East Tennessee .

We purchased our first cabin' Ambleside of The Smokys '( property # 434610 ) and soon after came upon this new property. Windermere is walking distance from Ambleside ( 300 yards ) which gives the traveller options if they would need to have 2 cabins for larger groups.

My wife Pip who is from the United Kingdom and our two dogs...Sasha & Major enjoy traveling and appreciate value for accomodations. We have provided a very comfortable and relaxing cabin for you to visit, and enjoy.The cabin has 2 bedrooms with queen size beds and 2 full baths. Wood burning fireplace, fully functional kitchen , Wifi through out cabin, as well as HDTV in all rooms 42' in living area, and 22' in bedrooms. ceiling fans in all rooms, 4 person hot tub with privacy blinds on a large wrap around deck, ADT security system, and tastefully decorated........not to mention the amenities that the resort offers : pool, boat ramp, boat docks, walking trail, etc etc

Kevin & Pip Maas purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Kevin & Pip Maas chose Sevierville

This area of East Tennessee offers something for everyone of all ages. Dollywood theme park only 15 miles from cabin as well as the other attractions in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is the most highly visited National Park in the entire United States, so if you enjoy the great outdoors, you have planned a trip to the right place. The pace of East Tennessee is so relaxing which helps you truly get back to nature and enjoy being with your loved ones .

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is VERY secluded , private and cozy. If the weather is nice, sit outside and take in the wooded view that Windermere offers , or if you stay inside there is the wood burning fire place ( firewood NOT provided ) for you to curl up in front of and relax.........and don't forget the hot tub that awaits you during any season !

My friend and I spent from January 3rd to March 30th at Windermere! What a great time we had. This cabin is very clean and has everything you would need for your stay.The fireplace was so cozy on the cool days/nights. and the hot tub was an extra touch. We would like to thank Kevin and Pip for renting it to us throughout the winter months as we are from New York state and it kept us out of the snow! There is a nice paved walking trail right behind the cabin and my dogs and I enjoyed our walks every day. We both joined the Sevierville Community Center as I took a yoga class and my friend enjoyed the exercise room. We made many friends while there.We hope to go again in 2018!!!!

Great time at a great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! Quiet location. Everything you need to get away. Very clean. Beds were comfortable and clean. Any minor concerns or questions we had during our stay were addressed quickly and to our satisfaction. It is a very hilly/curvy drive from the foothills, but that is to be expected in the mountains. The pool was not open yet during our stay, so we can't comment on that other than the walking path is paved and steep in some places, so we would recommend driving to it. We enjoyed our walks along the path a lot and found our way around quickly. The local boat rental place closed, but we were able to drive to another one within 30 minutes. Most local attractions we went to were only a 20-30 minute drive away. We were also able to enjoy an entire day just hanging out at the cabin. We had a very relaxing stay.

Overall Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the seclusion of the cabin, sitting out on the porch was great in the mornings to enjoy coffee. The decor was very nice to appreciate, lovely pictures throughout the cabin. We chose this cabin over Ambleside because we brought our two Chihuahuas this time. It was nice to have more than a patch of grass to walk them daily. If you have bad knees you might want to consider their Ambleside cabin, those stairs several times a day were not fun. That was really the only con with this cabin because we had to tote the dogs up and down each time. Short legs and that many steps didn't mix well. As always the owners were super nice. We have enjoyed each stay with Kevin & Pip and will be returning in the future.

Nice cabin. We had a good stay

  • 3 of 5

Lovely location. A cute cabin but could use a few updates. The hot tub jets were weak and the air-conditioning was not working when it was 90 outside on two days. Without air-conditioning, it made the cabin unbearable if we dried clothes due to the dryer not venting to outside. Beds were comfortable and all in all we had a good time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time to review your recent visit I apologize that the AC malfunctioned during your stay as that is not something I would have let go without fixing before your arrival ... it did turn out to be a bad sequencer in the unit The hot tub is a basic hot tub that jets provide functional water circulation for enjoyment and I aplogize that this might have spoiled your visit The dryer is vented inside the cabin for insurance purposes I do value your reviews and will address them moving forward Thanks again.
