Overview

About the property

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

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

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 Smoky Mountain National Park, less than a mile from Rocky Top Sports World, 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 hoop, swings, horseshoes and a reservable pavilion that can accommodate 50 people, just a short drive from our cabin within our resort.

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 East

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin is a great time - perfect location, tones of room and multiple decks. The jacuzzi is a fun addition and if you don't feel like heading out there is plenty to do in the games room. We will definitely be back here!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (8 adults & 3 kids) stayed at Mudpuppies & Moonshine for our yearly vacation and what a wonderful place it is! The living/dining area was a great size for our family meals/activities. The bedrooms were very spacious. We especially enjoyed the game area in the loft and the fact that the swimming pool was conveniently close (walking distance). The location of the house was great! Instead of driving into Gatlinburg, a trolley stop was close by. The house is in close proximity to a grocery store, restaurants, local artisans, and the national park. The hosts were very helpful as well, responding quickly to questions that we had. We all had a wonderful time & hope to vacation at Mudpuppies again!

Fantastic home for our 14 person family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is nice and was the perfect size for our family! Plenty of space and fully furnished. The only negative thing about the place is the parking situation, however you are in the mountains!! We will be coming back!!

Lovely cabin

  • 5 of 5

We spent Independence Day week at this lovely home. My party consisted of 5 adults & 6 children. The home has 5 large bedrooms. (With a large childrens room). Everyone had their own space, and it was never too crowded for us. The home was clean with everything in the kitchen needed to cook, store, prepare, grill etc.

It was my first time in Gatlingburg & we had an awesome time in Gatlingburg & Pigeon Forge!

Thank you Dave & April

Great location and beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for what we wanted! We had seperate rooms for each family and a room for the kids!

The location is great! It is close to Gatlinburg and the drive is very easy. There is a Food City right down the road making it easy to get food, ice, and drinks once you get there.

The pool is amazing! It is within walking distance and was perfect for the hot afternoons!

The owners are great at communicating and are super helpful!

We highly recommend!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review! It is so nice to travel with a large group yet still have space of your own. It is the perfect size for that! We are close to so many things the pool, town, hiking trails, but the proximity to the grocery store can't be beat! We're so glad our cabin suited your group so well!
