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.

the house is beautiful & comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Steep ramp for handicap access, steep staircases, & very steep driveway. Parking for one vehicle comfortably. Needs handrails in standing shower, & second grab bar for toilet to be handicap accessible. Home owners are sweet & very accommodating. About 45 minutes from pigeon forge. Very affordable!

We loved this cabin. The driveway was a bit challenging with a handicapped van but we managed. Such a sweet place.

Lovely well-appointed cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were in the area for a family wedding and thought we would have a more pleasant experience in a mountain cabin than hotel rooms. We originally chose this one for its handicapped acc SS for my elderly mother. In the end she was not able to make the trip but we went anyway. There is plenty of room for 5-6 adults with good separation. The kitchen is nice with plenty of dishes and pots. We had all we needed and more. Very clean and the owners were a pleasure to work with!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We opted for a getaway this Thanksgiving. My husband passed away in April and my kids knew the holidays were going to hit me hard. This getaway was perfect & accommodated my youngest who is in a wheelchair. It was a relatively short drive to Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge and a welcome escape from the chaos that is there. We enjoyed the fireplace every night! The porch was a great place to sit and reflect on thoughts and memories and just enjoy Mother Nature.

Wonderful last-minute girls's getaway!

  • 5 of 5

First, thank you Erik for being so very nice and accommodating to me, my sister (69 year old birthday girl!) and my daughter throughout all my many rental inquiry emails and text messages. It was nice to easily access him for whatever questions we had as we got settled into this wonderfully cozy cottage in the woods (there are several houses around, almost like a country subdivision, not isolated at all.)

The cottage itself is IMMACULATELY clean and comfy! The linens were very good quality, the beds very comfortable, kitchen completely stocked for any kind of cooking you may need - everything was high end and details were not missed all throughout the house. Lots of personal attention to details added to the charm.

We loved all the uplifting quotes and verses throughout the house and the sense of peace and restfullness it offered us. We enjoyed it so much we ended up planning our weekend around just staying in as much as possible, building a fire and enjoying each other's company AND the coziness of the cottage.

The screened porch has clean, comfy cushioned furniture to enjoy coffee and listen to nature (trees surrounding it but not too dense). We wished we had come a few weeks earlier as the trees would have been at peak color I'm sure. But we will definitely be back - hopefully through other seasons to experience Yokie's place in spring and winter too! Would love to see those woods covered in snow!! You can see trees from the front view and back view no matter where you're sitting in the large, open living room - which was another thing we loved, the openness of the living/dining room.

Lastly, the oversized tub in the second bedroom was a hit with my daughter during a long bubble bath she treated herself to :)

We definitely plan to return and anyone reading this review will agree, I'm sure, once you've experienced this wonderful cottage for yoourself!

Great place to stay the Olafson's are great people to work with

  • 5 of 5

The place was so nice everything was clean and well stocked. The 3 bedrooms were perfect. Everything that we needed was there, they had a great wheelchair accessible bathroom. The Olafson's were great people to work with we will definitely book this home again. If you need a place to stay this is a wonderful house. Again this house was very clean and had lots of room.
