This cabin has been totally renovated. In spring 2017, a new Nordic hot tub was installed and tall pines lining the driveway were removed to open the view. In spring 2015, the exterior retaining walls were completely rebuilt and the landscaping was freshened with new plantings. Inside you will find a new sofa and recliner, new main floor bedroom furniture, new bedding and window treatments in both bedrooms, plus a new cabinet in the loft full of fun new games and books for all ages. Also, many titles have been added to the DVD movie library.
The kitchen and both bathrooms were totally gutted and rebuilt from the floor up. The main floor has new Hickory hardwood floors through living room, kitchen, & bedroom. The kitchen has coordinating hickory cabinets, granite counter tops & granite sink, new faucet, window, lighting, and dishwasher.
The bathrooms have been completely redone with tile flooring, new vanities, fixtures & lighting. The main floor bath has a 4 foot walk in shower. (No tub, shower only)
The main floor bedroom features a log king bed made by the owner and new log side tables and dresser. The bed is dressed with a new bear theme quilt with matching shams and window treatment made by the owner. The French door leads out to the back deck.
The 2nd floor bedroom has a queen bed, and features a beautiful Donna Sharp quilt and window treatments. This bedroom also has an adjoining 1/2 bath, a small sitting area, and a small private balcony through the French door that overlooks a wooded area and the outdoor dining area. For a special touch, the owner monogramed all bed linens.
The living room has a comfy overstuffed sofa and recliner, and an upholstered rocker providing comfortable seating for four. The cabin is tastefully decorated with charming rustic appeal and has a cozy welcoming feeling as soon as you walk through the door. The hearth cabinets, fireplace mantel, stair/loft railing, and deck chairs were custom made by the owner.
This cabin has been lovingly renovated inside and out over the last several years. They will be back each winter to complete more projects. Every detail reflects their talent and hard work. You'll find very few cabins in the Smokies that compare in quality and comfort! Hillside Haven is a retreat that you'll want to come back to again and again!
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT INTERNET: Cable is not available on the mountain, so the next best option is a Verizon MiFi hotspot. Unlike cable, Verizon doesn't have unlimited bandwidth packages. We provide each guest stay with 2GB of bandwidth. If you're just browsing web pages and checking emails, you should be fine. But if you want to watch Netflix, YouTube or any live streaming or downloads, you'll gobble up that 2GB in a day or two. We don't want you to have to pay the overage fees ($15/GB) so please consider your internet usage and needs before booking.
