About Donn & Margaret Tisch

Donn and Margaret Tisch are the owners/managers of Smoky Mountain Golden Cabins and Golden View Lodge. Donn grew up on the farm and has tried his hand at several professions including working as a chef, managing a dry cleaning plant and an over the road trucker before finding his way into the vacation rental business.

Margaret is originally from Ireland (part of why she so loves Wears Valley, it reminds her of home!) and she has called the United States her home since moving here in the 1980's. Margaret has owned a cleaning company in Florida, is widely known as the best mother in the whole world and has spent the last several years working in retail at one of the major box stores.

Donn and Margaret have two grown son's, one who is currently employeed in the Oil Fields of North Dakota while the other is attending college at Dakota State in Madison S.D.

It is our faith that directs who we are and what we believe. When it comes to our guests experience in one of our vacation properties, we hope to provide a setting of rest and peaceful relaxation. We believe that in this busy world all too often the first thing lost are those special times with family and friends. We hope guests will at some point during their stay, make a special memory that they will carry for their life time. Time is short and we are but only here for a little while - So take some time to come to the mountains, breath in that fresh mountain air and take in all the grandeur and beauty! Spend sometime on the porch in a rocker or relaxing in the hot tub and let the cares of the world pass by! At Smoky Mountain Golden Cabins we are in the business of making memories that last a life time!

Donn & Margaret Tisch purchased this cabin in 2012

This is the ultimate mountain property! We have spent the better part of 9 months remodeling this cabin (2012) to get it ready for you!

Spectacular Views - Unbelievable Beauty!

Totally Secluded on almost 3 acres on a gated road!

What makes this cabin unique

Choosing this property was what you could call a 'no brainer'. It has everything we are looking for in a cabin when we go in search of our next project!

It is like staying in a brand new cabin!

We had a wonderful time. It was a mixed group ages 2 to 82. It was perfect for everyone. It also looked like the pictures on VRBO site. We really enjoyed this cabin rental.

Exceeded my expectations. Great location. Close to grocery stores and National Park. Breathtaking view from the deck. Comfortably accommodated 15 guests. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit, hot tub and pool table.

Cabin was very clean and beds were comfortable. Kitchen is a good size for cooking for a large group. Owners responded to questions in a timely manner. We will definitely return.

This was our first time renting from Donn and Margaret. We were a group of ladies on a "Girls Weekend Getaway". We had our priorities: hot tub, enough bedrooms for everyone to have privacy, a deck with views and rocking chairs and a driveway that we could actually drive up. This place had it all! Unfortunately, our timing had little to be desired as we happened to be there when the wild fires hit Gatlinburg and Wears Valley. The 80 mph winds the first night left us all indoors. With no electricity. The grill had a full tank of propane so we were able to cook our dinner on the grill. We watched the red glow from the fires in Gatlinburg but had no idea that there was another fire right in the valley where this cabin is situated. Thank goodness Donn and Margaret came up to alert us or we could have easily been trapped. We spent the first night watching trees and houses get consumed by the fires but decided to finally brave the drive back to the cabin after spending several hours in the CVS parking lot. The rains brought much needed fire fighting relief and there was no damage to the immediate area around our cabin or to the cabin itself.

We spend the next 18 hours without electricity but made due with the grill and taking water from the hot tub (now a cold tub) to use in the toilets. Donn was on top of everything and came up a couple of times to check on us and give us an update of what he had heard about the damage and fire situation. We were very thankful and knew he was trying his best to make this a nice stay. The next day brought tornadoes and it was time for us to go. While we had a very challenging few days in the Smokies, the cabin itself is a keeper! The furniture and rooms are exactly as pictured. Everything looks relatively new. The kitchen was well stocked other than no flashlights or candles.

We all said we would definitely return to this cabin again to enjoy the beautiful views and perfectly appointed cabin. Donn and Margaret were gracious enough to tell us that they would do something to help with our next stay since this was above and beyond the normal conditions. We are very grateful and will be back to enjoy another one of their cabins.

Wears Valley is located next to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park along route 321 between Pigeon Forge and Townsend Tennessee and just over the mountain from Gatlinburg! It is location that makes Wears Valley the perfect vacation destination. Located only minutes from the 'city action' of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg but still retaining the peaceful rustic seclusion that makes Townsend so appealing but without the long drive. Wears Valley has it's own entrance into the Park off Lyons Springs Road through Metcaff Bottoms, and is centrally located between Cades Cove and Pigeon Forge, Townsend and Gatlinburg. When looking for the perfect mountain getaway setting you will find Wears Valley to be everything you wanted and more! Now you too know the Smoky Mountains best kept secret!
