About Julie Shaffery

My name is Julie Shaffery and I am from New Jersey. I am a real estate broker. My husband Michael and I have three children. We all enjoy riding our horses and vacationing in the Smokys. We are so happy that we can make our dream part of yours by sharing our vacation home with you. This picture was taken in August 2011 in Cades Cove when my husband and I renewed our wedding vows. I brought 18 family members with us from NJ.

Julie Shaffery purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Julie Shaffery chose East

This property was a stones throw away from our other cabin and we thought it would be nice to keep our family close by during gatherings.

What makes this cabin unique

We take extra special care of our property. We expect the cabin to be clean and pest free exactly the way we want to stay in a vacation home. We are so happy that we can share this with other families.

Magical cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we began driving up the hill to the cabin we knew we were in for a treat. The cabin was beautiful! We were so pleased with how clean and neat everything was. We instantly felt relaxed and spent most of our time just sitting out on the porch in our rocking chairs just looking out at the lovely view. Cabin is well appointed and we cooked most dinners in. The owners were so quick to respond with any questions we had and even extended their knowledge to day trips and what restaurants we should try! I look forward to returning with my family!

Wonderful Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Cabin Joy. There were 5 adults and 4 children (ages 6-14). They loved the pool table, air hockey, and arcade games. The cabin is stocked well (towels, washer/dryer, kitchen supplies, grill, hot tub, etc.) Very clean and updated. There is some damage to the bottom of one of the bath tubs but we were made aware of this before the stay and the tub is fully functional. Would also recommend making sure the toilet seats fit the toilets. I really have no complaints that would change my 5-star review - only suggestions. Very centrally located many stores and attractions in Pigeon Forge. We did drive one day into Gatlinburg. It took some time with holiday traffic but we expected that. The resort has an indoor and outdoor pool. Both are clean and well maintained but the pool temperature of the indoor was freezing!!! And of course our first day at the cabin it was only 65 degrees. It definitely warmed up over the weekend but the pool temperature stayed pretty cold. Again overall, would definitely come back to the cabin again. We made a lot of family memories. Thank You!!!

Outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin Joy was just what we were looking for in a cabin. It had beautiful black bear decor, everything was fresh and clean, well stocked and just a great all around place to get away with your family. We would definately choose this cabin again!

Clean and Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was great for the five of us girls spending a long weekend. We had plenty of space for all us. The cabin was well stocked with kitchen appliances (Keurig + Coffee Pot) and dishes, pots/pans etc. The place was clean and the codes sent in the welcome email were much easier than using a key. We enjoyed the pool (waterfalls were amazing!), coffee on the deck, and the hot tub at night. The grill was easy to use and we didn't have any bear sightings! Pigeon Forge was easily accessible through various routes from the cabin and Gatlinburg main strip was only about 10 min drive.

The only improvements I would make was to mention that "Cabin Joy" wifi does not work well, the ATT wifi works much better (information on the router in the bedroom with the tub). Also, including a map of the complex (ie location of pool, clubhouse etc) at the cabin instead of just at the bottom of the email would have been helpful. Otherwise we had no issues and had a great stay!

Great owner! Cabin is just like the pictures.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was fine, just like the pictures. The owner was great, very attentive. The issues were the proximity of the cabin to the main road for us. It was a chore to get to the main road daily. The pool was crowded every time we went. Again, the owner and cabin were great! The resort area wasn't what we were looking for and we have stayed in better areas in the past.

Owner's Response: Hi. I am glad that you enjoyed our cabin. Thank you for writing a good review. We did actually measure our cabin from the Parkway via Henderson Chapel Rd and we are exactly 3 miles. Any closer to the Parkway you would have noise. I have installed a camera in our clubhouse and have been monitoring the pool area and I must say, it is never overcrowded. I think it is bad luck and timing that it was on your visit. I have stayed in many resorts in that area before purchasing there and I loved Bear Creek Crossing the best. I am really sorry that you didn't and I can tell you that 90% of my guests love that resort. Thanks again
