About Rich Daigle

I'm a transplant from New England and my wife, Lisa, grew up in east Tennessee. We have 3 children and have spent a great deal of time vacationing in the mountains of east Tennessee over the years. After retiring from 30 years of law enforcement, we decided to purchase a cabin in the mountains to use as a vacation getaway. We decided to place it on the rental program to help defray the costs associated with owning and maintaining the cabin and to allow others the opportunity to enjoy the area we love so much. We hope you enjoy your stay and strive to make your vacation a memorable one.

Rich Daigle purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Rich Daigle chose East

After looking at countless chalets and log cabins in the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area, we found this cabin and knew right away that it had our name all over it. This true log cabin is set on a heavily wooded lot in a quiet subdivision. It is in Wears Valley and just 2 miles from the main drag in Pigeon Forge. The cabin has all the amenities for your mountain vacation allowing you to truly relax and enjoy your stay. The cabin's wrap around covered porch with a large hot tub and several rockers is our favorite feature. The interior has a loft and cathedral ceiling with lots of windows. The tongue and groove pine-wood walls and ceilings, exposed rough-hewn support beams and stone fireplace give it that country charm and comfort.

What makes this cabin unique

All the amenities you want in a log cabin - a quiet secluded location yet just minutes from all the action.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cabin. The location is far enough from the crowds and busy streets to enjoy the peace and relaxation, yet close enough to all the shopping and restaurants. This was a great place to unwind in the Great Smoky Mountains. It was nice to come back here and relax in the hot tub after a long trip to Nashville. We enjoyed Cade's Cove. If you haven't planned to go there...DO IT...It's amazing! Enjoyed the horseback riding. We cant wait to come back to the Smoky Mountains! Thanks again!

Beautiful log cabin escape in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

I loved this cabin, felt right at home. Provided every amenity you could want or need for a stress-free getaway and I plan to return. Even my dog had a good stay. The size and especially the decor was perfect. Truly a great place to stay, loved it. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Brian...Thanks for taking the time to complete a review of your stay. We agree that you won't find a more quiet or clean cabin so close to the Parkway with all the activities and amenities that the Parkway provides or the cabin's proximity to it all. We spend lots of time there ourselves. Let us know when you're ready to do it again so we can extend our frequent flyer discount that we extend to all our prior guests. We want to earn that 5 star rating on your next stay! Thanks again!!! Rich

It was so pretty and private there, the cabin was unbelievably beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the peace and quiet there. We stayed at other cabins but your showed that you really care about your guests. Everything was done for our comfort. You had everything we could need poor want right there. We didn't have time to Jude the hot tub cause we did so much, when our day was done it was like coming home.

Great stay for a family trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely cabin for 3 nights. We enjoyed having breakfast and dinner at the porch. We also loved the hot tub and the pool table. Our 7-month baby loved crawling around exploring the place. The cabin is surprisingly baby friendly. We did not need to worry that she would bump into hard edge objects. The sloping driveway was a bit of challenge, but it did not bother us much. We always managed to park right in front of the entrance. The owner Rich is really nice and helpful! When we asked whether we could check in earlier because we had a baby with us, he was very understanding, and arranged to let us in earlier. Thanks! --The Baczak family

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review and for assisting us with the "other issue". Turns out we did the same thing with 2 other guests. Already received one check, waiting on yours and can't get the 3rd person to return my calls...even after explaining the problem. It is what it is I suppose. Look forward to having y'all back and extending an extra discount for your cooperation...Thanks again!!! Rich
