About April and Dave

We are frequent visitors to the area and love all that is has to offer. We fell in love with the mountains several years ago and are always ready to head back whether it's for hiking, viewing wildlife, taking our kids for walks in nearby creeks, go-carting, or just driving through the beautiful Smoky Mountain National Park to enjoy the scenery. As owners, we have also become involved in the resort and maintain board positions in the Home Owner's Association to participate in the standards, upkeep, and forward progress to benefit all guests. contact: 513-400-4636

April and Dave purchased this Cabin in 2014

Why April and Dave chose Gatlinburg

This was our first cabin! We chose it because it is in a perfect location to enjoy the many activities available in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. It is quiet and relaxing and feels like you are miles from hustle and bustle, yet it is minutes from everything. High enough to have a view, but no hazardous roads to navigate to get there! We liked the area so much, we purchased a second, only 4 cabins away from this one.

What makes this Cabin unique

We love this cabin and it shows! We are constantly working to improve our guest's experience weather it is a stocked kitchen, new carpeting, new appliances, updated bathrooms, tasteful decor or simply fixing that thing that is broken to ensure you have a great time! It is located near the Arts & Crafts Community where you can spend hours (or maybe days) viewing and buying things from local craftspeople. We are also about a mile to Rocky Top Sports World. You can sit on the front porch or one of the back decks sipping coffee while you plan your day and enjoy the beauty of our cabin's location. Rather than the typical bear, fishing, or elk theme, we've opted for tastefully simple and local decor paying homage to the region as well as the cabin name and moonshine heritage of the Appalachian Mountains which include the Smokies. You will find moonshine distillery barrel lids and jars adorning the cabin!

                                                              Loved our stay!! Everything you need and more. Very clean and well maintained.

                                                              Great fun with friends

                                                              Great cabin. Good kitchen for cooking. Needs garbage disposal. Master bathroom needs a shower.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you for choosing our cabin. We agree about adding a shower in the first floor master suite, it's been on our to-do list! We have a major update with a large walk-in shower planned in April 2018. It is worth noting the bathroom configurations are clearly described in our listing and the 1st floor Jacuzzi tub (no shower) is shown in the pictures - we encourage all guests to thoroughly review the listing descriptions and photos so you know exactly what you are choosing.

                                                              Garbage disposals, if not properly used can contribute to all types of plumbing issues, especially for septic systems. In order to ensure our guests don't run into unexpected issues, you won't find them in many cabins in the area.

                                                              Cozy cabin! Very clean, good location!

                                                              stacey h.

                                                              Cabin was very comfortable and clean. Beds were comfy! The only downfall was the bathroom attached to bedroom on main level only had a jacuzzi tub and no shower. That was inconvenient. Otherwise everything else was great!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Hi Stacy - we agree and that old tub has been on our to-do list since we purchased the cabin! This is the year! We have contracted to have the jacuzzi tub (currently shown in our cabin pictures) replaced by a large walk-in shower during the month of April between guests. When coming back to the area, stay with us again, I'm sure that will be the bedroom everyone is fighting for!

                                                              Thank you for choosing our cabin!

                                                              LOVED IT!!!

                                                              Great place awesome people!

                                                              This cabin is great! Plenty of room for everyone. Board Games for kiddos. Thank you for a wonderful time.

                                                              Great cabin and location!
