About Odis or Rhonda Chambers

Odis and I have been married 34 years. We have lived in this area basically all those years. We raised our family in this location and still enjoy most of our family living close by. I (Rhonda) was born here. Odis' family hails from the Cades Cove area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. His family moved to Blount County when Cades Cove was established as part of the National Park. The property on which your cabin sits was originally deeded to Frederick Emert in the 1700's who was an ancestor of mine (Rhonda). It has remained in the family ever since. We built Hoo's Looking Back in the summer of 2000 and have enjoyed meeting many of our guests over the last 13 years. In order to maintain a natural theme we tastefully decorated this cabin with owls. Hence the name 'Hoo's Looking Back'. We have also been owners of our own restaurants for all or most of our married life.

Odis or Rhonda Chambers purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Odis or Rhonda Chambers chose East

The outdoors and Great Smoky Mountains National Park and this area have always been a huge part of our lives. We have done some traveling and realized that we would like to provide a restful get-away for couples, such as we would enjoy when we travel.

What makes this cabin unique

This home is privately owned, cleaned and maintained by the owners. It is our belief that every guest deserves the same clean, well maintained surroundings that this cabin offers.

Perfect and Romantic!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is the perfect place for couples that need a relaxing getaway! We stayed here for our 7th anniversary and had everything we could ever ask for! Odis and Rhonda were so helpful, checking in with us the night of our arrival to let us know that snow was expected and we might want to stock up on groceries. We could have stayed in all weekend if we wanted and had all of the entertainment we needed. Everything was in great working order and we made use of it all during the snow storm, from the big screen tv (we brought some RedBox movies) to the pool table, from the basketball goal to the chess board, and of course the hot tub! This is the absolute CLEANEST cabin I have EVER stayed in! GREAT JOB!!! Everything, including the hot tub, was immaculate! I just can't say enough! I loved all the amazing little touches-from the guest book where you can leave a note, to all of the cute owls placed throughout to carry the theme. We got 6-7 inches of snow and it was gorgeous! The driveway is quite a hill, but someone did sweep it for us and if my car had been FWD, we probably could have made it up, but instead we parked at the bottom and walked it up once we ventured out in to town. I recommend this place to anyone! We will DEFINITELY be coming back again and again and I can't wait! Also, I don't know why there are a few reviews on here that mention no privacy-there aren't curtains on the windows, but there are blinds on any windows that would face any other cabins and there is PLENTY of privacy in this sweet cabin. I almost forgot to mention-the free breakfast is AMAZING!!! Don't miss out on this steal of a deal! What a great hidden gem in the Great Smokey Mountains!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! As we get older and aren't able to do all the cleaning and upkeep ourselves and must rely on others, it means so much to hear that our guests appreciate the amenities and cleanliness of our cabin. It is folks like you who keep us encouraged for the future of our efforts! We look forward to hosting you again! Sincerely, Rhonda and Odis

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time celebrating our 3rd Anniversary. We loved the cabin. It was nice to get into the hot tub after a long day of Cade's Cove and shopping. Check in and check out were simple. We enjoyed our breakfast at the little restaurant. The employees were super sweet and enjoyed our conversations.

Hope to be back soon! The only complaint I have is the small tv upstairs.

We hope to be back soon!

Cabin was just perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

My then boyfriend and now fiancé stayed in Odis & Rhonda's cabin December 28th 2016 -3rd of January. My boyfriend proposed with a trail of (battery operated-safety first) candles from the front door out to the back porch shaped in a heart with White Christmas lights everywhere. It was perfection! Although, I did not get to see snow, Gatlinburg was awesome, everyone was so friendly. The Complimentary Breakfast was also delicious! The cabin was clean, fully stocked and we loved the owl decorations. The hot tub both inside and out was a nice treat. We rented ATV's which was so much fun! We will definitely be back to stay.
