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

Beautiful home. Great View.
My kids and I had an excellent time at Twin Peaks. Everything we needed was accommodated. There was plenty to do for the kids nearby, and also quiet and serene enough at cabin for mom on their beautiful patio view. We would definitely stay again at Twin Peaks.
Great place to stay!
Great location overall although if your looking for a secluded cabin this isn’t the one for you. You’ll have 2 friendly neighbors close by. But again a great place the beds are very comfortable, there is a tv in every room, WiFi, and in a good location. Would stay there again and would recommend. If you are bringing a pet with you and there anything like my curious dog you’ll want to watch them while there outside as the road is only about 70 ft from the deck of the property (my dog was perticularly set on testing his limits). P.S. If you’re driving there at night be carful at the bottom of the hill, there is heavy deer activity.
Thank you for the feedback. I am so glad that your dog didn't have any problem. The single lane road is a dead end and there are only a handful of homes past the driveway. So the road gets very little traffic. I am also sorry you didn't feel secluded. In the winter Dec/Jan the trees are bare and other cabins can seem close. I am glad you enjoyed it there though.
House was beautiful. It had everything we needed.
perfect cabin, perfect view and location, great decor and convenient to everything!
Twin Peaks has everything you need for your stay! The deck has a terrific view and plenty of room. The gas grill worked perfect and we hope to use the fire pit on our next visit!!! The cabin was itself has a nice, roomy layout and was so comfortable. Thank you to Russ for your quick response to some of our inquiries!
Beautifully decorated, well equipped, exceptionally clean
Our second visit to this property. Highly recommend.
Clean, comfortable, and beautiful. Well appointed, warmly decorated, and what a view. I would recommend to anyone looking for a vacation stay in the mountains. Close to everything.
Thank you so much we're so glad you enjoyed it as much as we do
