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!

Cute little cabin in a quiet area.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our three nights at this cabin. Well-appointed and clean. Pool table was great fun and hot tub was nice after a long day of hiking. Porch and rocking chairs are nice.

It is a small place, but worked well for what we needed. We parked at the top of the driveway.

Owner's Response: Glad y'all enjoyed your stay. We prefer the word cozy to small, and it can get even more cozy when you have a party of 6 since it is only a 2Bedroom/2Bath. We look forward to having you back on your next mountains getaway.

Very nice, homey cabin with everything you need. Grandsons really enjoyed the pool table.

  • 5 of 5

Will definitely consider again for future visits. Hot tub was great also. Driveway a little steep but was not a problem. Loved the deck. The creek flowing below was nice to hear. Tv in living room was small but we lived with it. Definitely recommend. Rich was great to work with.
