Overview

About the property

Peaceful Mountain Getaway - Wheelchair Accessible, Charming And Secluded

Yokie's Place, a beautiful 3-bedroom, 2-bath mountain home, is nestled in the Smoky Mountains in Laurel Valley, a gated mountain resort community that has a gorgeous 18-hole mountain golf course, swimming pool, clubhouse, and other amenities. My mother, Yokie Horton, was confined to a wheelchair, so when I had this home built for her, it was created to accommodate her special needs. My mother is with the Lord now, but this beautiful cabin constantly reminds me of her. So, if you have special needs like my mother, or if you just want to spend some time in the mountains in the down-home comfort of a spacious, beautifully appointed home, Yokie's Place will be perfect for you!

This home has a fully equipped kitchen for all your cooking needs, along with a covered front porch, a covered and screened-in back porch (a great place to enjoy your morning coffee while listening to the little stream at the bottom of the hill), propane barbecue grill, central heat and air, wood-burning fireplace, wide screen TV in the Living Room and TV's in 2 bedrooms, cable, wireless high-speed internet, and a washer and dryer. Linens and towels are provided, as well as bath soap and toilet paper. Also, as our guest at Yokie's Place, you will have FREE use of the Laurel Valley swimming pool.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this house, location and its accessibility for all. The ramp was great as well with the walk in shower for our aunt. We enjoyed walking some of the neighborhood and exploring the creek. It was very quick to get into town and explore the Great Smoky Mountains area and Cades Cove. Our young son lovely called it the Green House and has asked to go back! We plan on staying here again on our next trip up that way.

Very nice house with good common areas for family

  • 4 of 5

The property is close to Cade's Cove for some good hiking. This property is far enough away from Pigion Forge that you do not get the hustle and bustle of that area. We had one small plumbing problem (toilet tank would not refill without making an awful noise) however one call to the owner and it was repaired in less than 3 hours. 3 comfortable beds for 6 adults. We will be back.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 4 of 5

I rented this cabin for my family as a surprise weekend get together for my husband's birthday. We had a wonderful time. The cabin was quaint and very clean. The only downside is that the driveway is extremely steep and it is difficult to park 3 vehicles.

Felt like home!!

  • 5 of 5

Yokies was the perfect place! I was pleasantly surprised once walking in, the pictures do not do justice to this place! It was bigger and roomier then I had expected. We had an issue with the second toilet not flushing, the owners were extremely pleasant and came out to fix it! It was honestly like being at home! Within short driving distance to everything. Will rent again!

Unfamiliarily clean

  • 5 of 5

Most of the places we have stayed always say it will be clean and it never is. This place was clean. Everything was in place and it was very comfortable. We were short some wash cloths and one phone call took care of that immediately. We can certainly recommend this place with high marks, especially for those wanting more peace and quiet than being in the heart of Pigeon Forge. We do not like staying at Pigeon Forge and this place was perfect for us. We have never given a recommendation like this before. Clean means a lot to us, plus the home was comfortable in every way. The kitchen pots and pans were of high quality, and my wife kept going from room to room admiring all the decorations and touches that you almost never see in a rental. GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!
