About the property

1 Bed-1 Bath-Loft-Excellent Location-Private Back Porch-Hot Tub-Free WIFI

Mountain Memories is an owner managed, intimate log cabin nestled in beautiful Sky Harbor. This unique log cabin is in a prime location between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and is a short drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The cabin is easily accessible via well-maintained, paved roads and has off-road private parking. You will enjoy this quiet, wooded, low-traffic area with privacy from neighboring cabins.

The interior boasts of beautiful hardwood floors and exposed logs with unique, handcrafted cedar furnishings displaying the owner's wood-crafting expertise. Each piece of furniture was made to accent the beauty of this cabin and its quiet, peaceful surroundings.

Mountain Memories cabin is the perfect place for an anniversary retreat, a weekend escape, or a week-long vacation to relax and unwind with your spouse. You will enjoy the cozy ambiance of a beautifully decorated and well-maintained mountain cabin. You will find a fully equipped kitchen ideal for cooking if you choose not to leave the cabin during your stay. You will also enjoy nestling up on the reclining leather sofa and love seat, in front of the gas fireplace, to watch the 39” flat screen TV.

You will enjoy quiet, restful sleep in the King-Size Master Suite with a memory foam mattress. You will also find a 39” flat screen TV in the armoire along with a DVD player and an assortment of movies which are family friendly. The jetted jacuzzi tub in the bedroom will complete your romantic getaway.

For a better view of the mountain scenery, you may choose to relax and unwind as you watch for wildlife from the hot tub on the covered back porch. The 5-person hot tub features a reclining seat and waterfall. You may choose to sit in the rocking chairs as you enjoy your morning coffee, or you may want to sit in the custom cedar log swing.

The spacious bathroom has a well-lit shower, linen closet, hair dryer and a quiet, energy efficient washer and dryer.

Escape to the loft to challenge your companion to a game of pool, play some cards or board games at the tall cafe table, or simply relax and read a good book on the reclining leather sofa and love seat.

In front of the cabin, you will find that the owner has handcrafted a replica of an old-fashioned outhouse to contain your trash so the forest animals cannot access it. The front of the cabin has been beautifully landscaped with knockout roses and various perennials. There is also a charcoal grill with a stone bench and table for your convenience. Grilling utensils are provided. A bench has been added to the front porch, handcrafted from cedar, for guests to enjoy. Great place to relax while dinner is cooking on the grill.

The owners have invested a lot of time and love into Mountain Memories so that each of their guests will marvel at the Mountain Memories they create.

Traveler Reviews:

When I first walked inside, I was completely blown away! This cabin looks and feels brand new! My husband and I came to enjoy the beautiful hiking trails and to spend time together. We have stayed in other cabins in various states, but this one surpasses them all! It is so warm and cozy! This cabin doesn't feel like a rental, it feels like a home. The owners obviously take great care in caring for the cabin, from the gorgeous, handmade furniture, to providing every little thing a renter could need. The location of the cabin is perfect - just minutes from the heart of Gatlinburg and the entertainment of Pigeon Forge. The cabin is very serene and private, but not completely isolated. We felt safe and relaxed during our entire stay. The hot tub was the perfect way to begin and end each day! We absolutely love this place and plan to come here again! Thank you so much for providing a wonderful home away from home. We appreciate how immaculate everything was. The kitchen was very well stocked. The bed and couches are very comfortable. Thank you for the great vacation.


What an amazing place to stay and relax in the beauty of the mountains. We loved all the beautiful furnishings and woodwork. Our favorite thing was playing pool in the loft. It was nice to have the pool table and hot tub to just relax at the cabin. The location was also nice as we spent a day in Gatlinburg and a day in Pigeon Forge. It was a short drive to both cities. Overall my husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect weekend. Between the cleanliness, the location, and all the amenities, we were truly blessed and can't wait to come back again.

About Gary & Kathy Edwards

We are Gary and Kathy and we are life-long, local Tennessee residents and this is our only cabin. We clean and maintain the cabin ourselves. We are proud to live so close to the beautiful Smoky Mountains. This has always been our family's favorite vacation place. Our children are grown and have moved away, but they always look forward to coming 'home' to the mountains.

Gary & Kathy Edwards purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Gary & Kathy Edwards chose East

We chose this property because of its location. We love coming to the mountains to hike, soak up the beauty of God's creation and enjoy quality time together as a family. We feel extremely blessed to own this cabin and for the opportunity we have to share our vacation home with you.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is in a very peaceful, quiet location. Sitting on the covered back porch you can watch squirrels scampering through the trees, gaze at the beautiful starry sky at night, soak in the hot tub after a long day of hiking or shopping and just RELAX. Everything you need for a great vacation is here. You do not have to drive far to enjoy all the attractions that Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and surrounding areas have to offer.

Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our second stay at Mountain Memories. As we remembered, the cabin was very clean and ready for our visit. Although it rained nearly each day, we did get to go tubing in Townsend, hiking at Tremont (a moderately difficult hike to the waterfall and not a single soul on the trail!), and enjoyed some adventures in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We did stay for 7 days and had to end up going and purchasing extra household products (dishwasher detergent, tissues, toilet paper). So if you plan on staying more than a few days, request extra or be prepared to purchase more. Overall, we had a nice visit.

Cozy cabin in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The Edwards have one of the nicest cabins in the area. From the landscaping to the interior decor it was clean, cozy and made us feel at home. The back patio was very nice to sit with coffee or relax in the hot tub. Centrally located we weren't far from anything we wanted to do. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and will definately return!
