About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

If you need a place to get away from all the stress, look no further 'Laurel Creek' is where you want to rest! This cabin is new and has a great view of the creek.

The smoke-free cabin has all new furniture and is decorated very tastefully with country charm. You can sit back on one of the rockers and take in a nice book, or just take a swing on the porch with a loved one with a nice cold glass of lemonade, while listening to the rippling creek.

There is a wrap-around porch with a private porch off the master bedroom, a great view of the creek! The kids will love the creek, just look under a few rocks and discover all sorts of critters. You might even see a beaver or two playing in the creek or passing by. Leave some corn for deers to feed on in the back yard.

In the fall hear the wild turkeys and spot a deer in the meadow a short walk away. End you day by relaxing in the jacuzzi on our deck, while doing some stargazing!

About Tim & Kathy Shearer

Hello, we are Tim and Kathy Shearer and are the owners of Laurel Creek Cabin. We live in sunny south Florida with our three beautiful daughters. We love the warm weather and beach here, but we also love to get away and go to the mountains and stay at Laurel Creek. We decided to let others stay at our lovely cabin in 2004. Of course many of our close friends and family jumped into the offers we gave to them. They all loved it and that's when we opened it to all to enjoy. We hope you will be our next satisfied guest....God Bless....Tim & Kathy

Tim & Kathy Shearer purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Tim & Kathy Shearer chose Smoky Mountains

We decided to buy in this location because of it being in the tri-state area, meaning within minutes to TN, NC, and GA. We also liked the peacefulness and all the many places to see and do in the area. We had been coming to this area for five years and decided just to buy since we loved it so much.

What makes this cabin unique

On site fishing, tubing, and wading in the creek along with the campfires at night roasting marshmellows.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rick and I had a wonderful time at your cabin. The cabin had all we needed and more. It was so peaceful and relaxing, which is what we both needed. The hot tub was perfect for the cooler nights with a small glass of wine. We wished we could of stayed longer, maybe next time we will. Was not able to see everything in the area, but got a chance to go to the Ocoee River, what a sight! Loved every minute of our stay. Would recommend it to any family small or large.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very nice. It was just the right size. My family had a great time. We loved the creek behind the cabin. It was shallow enough that my 3 boys loved fishing and playing in it. The fire pit is great It is close enough to town that you aren't isolated but it is still peaceful and quiet. The owner is very responsive and friendly.

Very relaxing! Overall great experience.

  • 5 of 5

Even though we were just there for the weekend we enjoyed all the amenities. We relaxed in the hot tub and had a hot dog roast at the fire pit. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. It really had all the conveniences of home. I would definitely stay here again.
