Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, One Level Log Style

The Queen of Hearts vacation cabin is a one level, 1300 sq. ft., log sided structure that sets alone, high on a hill, on a very private, half acre wooded lot. During the spring of 2016 we logged the back yard of the property, so right from the back deck you have an un-obstructed clear view of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Privacy, serenity, tranquility are just a few words that describe the setting of the Queen of Hearts. The closest neighboring cabin is more than 300 feet away, down the hill, and cannot be seen from the property. The Queen of Hearts is a place of refuge, an escape from the 'busy-ness' of life, and surrounded by the beauty of creation.

The comforts of life await you once inside the Queen of Hearts: luxury beds, jacuzzi bath in the master bedroom, relaxing and comfortable seating in the living room, white pine wall & ceiling finishes, country cabin decor, and more. If you need to connect with the world, there are two HD TV's with cable service, hi-speed internet with wi-fi router for cell phones and computers, and a wi-fi blueray player for movies and netflix access. A land line phone is provided just in case you need one.

The kitchen is fully equipped, including all dishes, pots & pans, utensils and appliances. We also have a huge assortment of spices in the cabinets for cooking. For grilling out, there is a large charcoal grill on the front deck.

Enjoy the evening air while relaxing in the screened-in covered porch that has table, chairs, and a porch swing for two. Spend some time in the hot tub on the rear deck.

Paved roads take you from Route 321, through the Bent Creek Golf Course, and up the gradual incline to the end of a Cul-de-Sac where the Queen of Hearts resides. The large, paved driveway has level parking for 3 cars. All of the attractions of the Gatlinburg area are just a short commute (and with LOW traffic) down Route 321.

We invite you and your loved ones to discover the peaceful and private setting of the Queen of Hearts vacation cabin during your visit to the Gatlinburg area.

David is presently working as an engineer in the power utility industry. Karen manages domestic duties and is hands on with the cabin rental management. Dave & Karen desire that you and your family can grow many fond vacation memories like they have here in the Gatlinburg area. We invite you to please come.

David Briggs purchased this cabin in 2014

Why David Briggs chose East

Privacy is the reason that many love the Queen of Hearts vacation cabin. With that said, the cabin is easy to get to. All paved roads through the well maintained Cobbly Nob resort, with a gradual uphill climb to your very own hilltop location. Neighboring cabins cannot be seen from the property at the Queen of Hearts. Take the driveway around the backside of the cabin to a large level parking lot. Every room of this cabin is handicap accessible, there are no stairs.

What makes this cabin unique

We have owned the Queen of Hearts cabin for 3 years. We looked at over two dozen cabins before choosing to buy this one, and the main reason we chose the Queen of Hearts was total privacy. The second thing was the beautiful view of the mountains from the backyard. The cabin is very convenient to all the needs and wants in the Gatlinburg area. It is a short, easy trip to Gatlinburg without dealing with heavy traffic, and we will tell you about the short cuts to Sevierville and Pigeon Forge. Having known the Gatlinburg area for over 40 years, we have come to realize the benefits of having a cabin located right here.

Amazing place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at Queen of Hearts. The descriptions didn't do the location enough justice. The view is incredible and the privacy is more than we were looking for. The cabin was clean, stocked with everything we needed. The owners supplied us with clear information/instructions ahead of time. Our only question going into the trip was whether or not we would need 4 wheel drive to access the cabin. The owners assured us we wouldn't. We rented an SUV for the trip, and it was a big help, I think we would have had a little trouble with our older sedans getting up the mountain. The cabin is located about 20 minutes from the main strip in Gatlinburg, which was perfect for us; easy to access, but far enough away from the bustle and bright lights. From the moment we arrived (which was just as the sun was setting) we were already talking about booking again for our anniversary. This will be our go to reservation in the future.

Cabin was beautiful, quiet and secluded with amazing views!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Queen of Hearts on Sunday November 27th. The Briggs have done a fantastic job making this place warm, charming and all the accommodations you could ask for. We highly recommend and will be back again.

With a heavy heart, on Monday 28th, we experienced the unprecedented fires that broke out in and all around Gatlinburg. About 8:00 that night we had to evacuate from Cobbly Nob due to fire on the mountain. Very horrific experience looking out and seeing fire ragging your way not knowing if you can make it down the mountain.

By the Grace of God we made it out safely, the wind was blowing 70 miles per hour plus....trees and power lines were on the roads on the way down. We contacted Mr. Briggs when we got to a safe place, he was extremely kind and helpful but mostly concerned for our safety.

We just pray for all the people affected by this terrible tragedy and hope that "Queen of Hearts" was not damaged in any way. Thank you Mr. Briggs for having such a kind heart. He has graciously given us a refund for the time we could not stay. May God Bless your family and your beautiful cabin!!! Thank you, Kim and Donna Haynes- Cullman, AL

Owner's Response: Donna, Karen and I are so grateful to God that you and Kim were able to get out of the resort safely that night. That historic event was a very tragic time for all of Gatlinburg. We feel terrible for the families that lost loved ones. Material things can always be replaced, lost lives cannot. Fortunately for us, our cabin only had some minor wind damage, and we have already made the repairs. When the time is right for you and Kim, we would love to have you come back. Thank you for sharing your experience, David.
