Overview

About the property

Custom Built 2/2 sleeps 6 with garage

Relax, reflect and enjoy the peace and silence while setting in rocking chairs viewing long range mountain views from the wrap-around porch. Whether you are a morning person that starts the day by enjoying your coffee while the cool morning fog rolls through the mountains, or end your day setting back with a glass of wine as you watch the sunset disappear behind the Smokies, it really doesn't matter... This is as close to heaven as you can get.

The cabin is conveniently located near some of the best outdoor adventures in the country. It is just a short scenic drive to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Cherokee Indian Reservation and Casino, Fields of the Wood, Great Smoky Mountains Train Adventures, Zip Lining, White Water Rafting, Gatlinburg, Dollywood and the historic Biltmore Estate.

For motorcycle riding, Deals Gap and the Cherohala Skyway are 35 miles from the cabin with a beautiful ride through the Nantahala. Or for a slower pace, the southern most end of the Blue Ridge Parkway is only about 50 miles away. The cabin has paved roads all the way to it including the driveway and a motorcycle garage is available for your toys when you're not using them. Fishing poles are waiting at the house when you want them or the river may be calling you to just come set in the water at a shallow spot and watch as the current flows by.

The cabin features a large open floor plan with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and great room with a stone gas log fireplace to the ceiling peak. The split bedroom plan provides a large master suite, with a king-size bed and private full bath. The guest bedroom, at the other end of the cabin, has a queen size bed and it's own full bath as well. King and Queen Beams through the ceilings gives you a feel of rustic openness. Bedrooms have TV and all linens. There is a couch in the living room that pulls out to a queen size bed. The cabin sleeps 6 people.

There is a outside fire pit area for your use with seating overlooking the mountains. ( firewood not provided)

About Russ Beckenstein

Russ and I had this custom home built for our personal enjoyment to spend time away from the rush of daily life and to have a private getaway to spend time with our family and close friends. In 2013, we have decided to open it up to let others experience what we have found. We hope you enjoy it as much as we always do.

Russ Beckenstein purchased this cabin in 2006

What makes this cabin unique

Paved roads including drive way with a motorcycle/atv garage. Views, 900 square foot wrap around porch, with the beauty of this cabin dropped in the middle of paradise. You will love it!

Peaceful and Relaxing Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation. The view and cabin were beautiful. We enjoyed our nights making s’mores by the fire pit and enjoyed a glass of wine on the porch every night. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us.

Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. It was quite, close enough to town for convenience but far enough away to feel the mountain vibe. The fire pit is the perfect extra touch. If your a star gazer the fire pit will be your favorite spot! We hope to visit again soon!

Just what we needed

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and at a convenient location for us. The beds were comfortable and there are T.V.'s in the bedrooms, which is nice. WIFI as well. The view was pretty, its nestled for privacy, which is nice because this home is in a community/neighborhood. I am not o sure if it would be private In the winter. We did see deer on walk through the mountain so that cool. There was a lot o pollen on the porch , but who can control that. Also the grill was pretty tricky to cook on and may have seen its better day. VRBO was a little difficult with this house but the communication with the home owner was pleasant and easy to deal with.

All in all great experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, and I am sorry about the Pollen and Grill. The pollen this time of year can be bad and I am sorry the porch was covered with it. I will look at the grill next time we are up there.
