About the Property

2BR, 1.5BA Mountain Cabin with Year-round Views

***Hillside Haven did not experience any damage from the recent wildfires***

This cabin has just been totally renovated, with work being finished September, 2014. Everything is new. New for 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 new 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 is all new for spring 2015, with 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, new for spring 2015. 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 past two winters by the owners. 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!

Hillside Haven is located on a quiet street at the

top of the mountain, where it feels like you are

miles from everything. Here you can enjoy year round mountain views, listen to the birds sing, and hear the Dollywood train whistle. Best bang for the buck - Dixie Stampede!

It's worth every penny! Great pre show,

Wonderful food & lots of it! Outstanding show! Perfect for kids and adults. You'll love it! Once the leaves have fallen you can also see Pigeon Forge below, which is especially beautiful during Winter Fest. You've never seen so many holiday lights! And look for the horse drawn carriages covered in lights on the Pkwy. Beautiful and romantic!

There are hundreds of restaurants and shops just minuets from the cabin. And plenty to see and do. Check out the zip line at the bottom of the hill. Or try indoor skydiving, horseback riding, or take a helicopter tour. Visit the Forbidden Caverns (take a jacket), the Titanic museum, Dollywood & Splash Country, the Artist Community in Gatlinburg, or take a scenic drive over the mountain to North Carolina.

You can be on the go all day, or you can do nothing all day. Either choice is perfect.

Hillside Haven is about rest & relaxation in

comfortable, simple, refined rustic surroundings.

'We don't have a TV in every room, we don't have video games or a pool table, no theater room, no landline phone, & no 'techy' gadgets.

We are 'low-tech' by choice. Things to enjoy:

Read a good book. Watch a movie. Take a walk. Enjoy the surroundings and the wildlife.

We love it here and are sure you will too.'

Blue Mist Cabins

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Hi, I'm Amy Greener, a resident of Knoxville and manager for my neighbors who are the owners of Hillside Haven. My cabin is down the street, so I've watched them over the last couple of winters renovating it from top to bottom, inside and out. When the owners wanted to make the cabin available for rentals part of the year, they asked me to help. So I can speak from firsthand experience that they have put hundreds of hours, sweat and occasional tears into Hillside Haven. Very few rental cabins are of this quality and the attention to detail is outstanding.

Why Pigeon Forge, TN, USA:
The owners have vacationed here every year for nearly 20 years, to visit friends in the area and to escape the cold and snow in the north. Purchased in Sept. 2012, the owners live in and work on the cabin throughout the winter and early spring, returning north when the snow melts. Much has been done, but they still have many exciting projects ahead! On a very quiet street, only 2.5 miles from the parkway in Pigeon Forge, Hillside Haven is a special retreat that allows you to unwind and enjoy the natural beauty of the mountains. Every morning is a sight to behold and enjoy!
