About Jeff and Tammy

Welcome to our home! We were custom builders for most of our career and built this home originally as our personal residence. After we received interest from people wanting to rent our home, we decided to share it with everyone and turned our custom and loved home into a vacation rental property. We lovingly selected each piece for this home to add to the character of this gorgeous Lodge! Most of the "Genuine and Authentic Game Mountings" were captured and preserved by our Uncle as far away as the Canadian Rockies and as close as the Mountains in Eastern Tennessee. We hope you will stay our beloved "Hackberry Lodge" and enjoy our home!

Jeff and Tammy purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jeff and Tammy chose East

Most of our guests have made comments that they are blown away the minute that they walk in the door! The views are so amazing its hard to capture them in a picture! You will be drawn in to that amazing view as soon as you enter this custom built and gorgeous cabin!

Stunningly beautiful log home & gorgeous mountain view!

  • 5 of 5

The two of us stayed about a week, leaving each morning for a long mountain hike in the park, coming back and cooking a gourmet dinner, then ending each day by lounging in the hot tub and enjoying a fire until bedtime. Things we especially liked: awesome wood interiors, beautiful furnishings & decor, big covered outdoor porch with fireplace, big & very well-equipped kitchen, extremely comfortable king mattress in the main bedroom, roomy main bathroom with double sink, covered parking, reliable wi-fi. We have stayed in many cabins and log homes in the Smokies, and this is by far our favorite. Highly recommended!

It is an AWESOME bed and so comfy glad you guys enjoyed it! Thank you so very much for being our guests and we hope you guys come back to see us!! Jeff and Tammy

Best vacation place ever

  • 5 of 5

This place we found to be near everything we wanted to go to and had the most wonderful view of the mountains one could ask for. Loved being able to have such a view when having morning coffee. Vacations are sometimes too short when enjoying the stay here.

Owner's Response: Sharon, Thanks you so much for the glowing review!! Morning Coffee in the kitchen looking out that huge kitchen window or sitting on the side porch deck are some of my favorite places as well to just relax and appreciate God's beautiful masterpiece! We were honored to share our home with you! Please come back anytime! Jeff and Tammy

Gorgeous both inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay at Hackberry Lodge, and I can't say enough good things about it. This home is beautiful both inside and out. While the inside of the home is certainly comfortable, I have to confess that we spent more time enjoying the outside amenities at the house: early morning coffee on the deck's rocking chairs overlooking the beautiful mountain views, afternoons spent on the chaise lounge chairs on the covered side deck while the gentle mountain breezes lulled us to sleep, lounging in the hot tub at night while gazing at the stars...

The location of the home is also perfect. It was exactly what we were looking for--an easy 15 minute drive to all the attractions but far enough away that we could enjoy the quiet, peace and serenity that we were looking for in a mountain home.

All in all, an exceptional house with very gracious owners who are very attentive to their guests' needs.
