About the Property

Comfortably sleeps 14. Enjoy a Smoky Mountain Vacation in our spacious cabin!

**Our cabin was not affected by the November 2016 wild fires**

Mudpuppies & Moonshine Cabin part of "Moonshine Cabins" and member of the Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce.

“Going to the woods is going home.” ~John Muir

You’ll feel right at home when you stay at Mudpuppies & Moonshine Cabin. Once you arrive, kick off your shoes, grab a drink and soak in the sights and sounds of nature all around on one of three porches. We’re close (less than 10 minutes!) to some great hiking spots at the Greenbrier section of the Great Smokey Mountain National Park or a quick drive into Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge for tons of family fun!

Mudpuppies & Moonshine is a well reviewed, large, luxurious cabin with many updates since 2014 - it's the perfect family friendly spot where you can relax and get away from it all. We are located close enough to everything the area has to offer, but you will feel like you are miles away! Ready for a swim? Gather the family for a short walk to the swimming pool. Kids need to run off some steam? We’ve got a great recreation area with a basketball hoops, swings, horseshoes and a reservable pavilion that can accommodate 50 people, just a short drive from our cabin within our resort.


Amenities include:
• 7 LED televisions with expanded cable package and Blu-ray/DVD players
• Free WiFi

Mudpuppies & Moonshine Cabin is conveniently located only three miles from downtown Gatlinburg, sleeps up to 14 comfortably. Enjoy 3 levels of spacious accommodations with hardwood floors; a well-stocked kitchen with updated appliances includes all you need for cooking meals; large, comfortable bedrooms; and fun & games for the whole family. Relax on the front porch, admiring Mt. LeConte while you enjoy your morning coffee or in the evening as the sun sets. Soak in the hot tub after a day of hiking, shopping and fun. The loft features a pool table, air hockey and a dart board. We offer two Master Suites with King size beds, located on the main and second levels. In the lower level you will find a guest bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds for the kids and 2 additional bedrooms - one with a king bed and one with a queen beds as well as a laundry closet with washer and dryer.

We are located right next door to the popular Arts & Crafts Community as well as the Smoky Mountain National Park. Our cabin is also located only 1 mile from the new multi-million dollar Rocky Top Sports World, the country's newest state-of-the-art sports tournament destination. The fun doesn't end there - there is plenty of fun to be had nearby at one of many go-cart racing tracks, mini-golf courses, dinner theaters, mountain coasters, Dollywood, and so close to many of the best restaurants that all the locals frequent.

Car: Recommended

Our 5 bedroom cabin is located within the Gatlinburg city limits, just 3 miles east of downtown, off U.S. 321, near the Glades Arts and Crafts Loop. Downtown Gatlinburg offers entertainment, shops, restaurants and attractions, including Ripley's Aquarium, Space Needle, Arial Tram, and Ober Gatlinburg Skiing Resort and Amusement Park. Our location is within 30 minutes of every attraction that the area offers, including Dollywood, golf courses dinner theaters, outlet malls and unique shops.

Just to the east on U.S. 321 is the Greenbrier Entrance to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, where one can enjoy horse back riding, fishing in the Little Pigeon River, hiking Mount Le Conte, nature walks, picnicking and more.

Also located within one mile is the new (opened in Summer 2014) Rocky Top Sports World, which is an 86,000 square foot multi sport facility. It includes 7 state of the art synthetic fields, track and field amenities, championship field and court, indoor climbing wall and indoor/outdoor dining.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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

Why the Owner Chose Gatlinburg, TN, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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!
