Appalachian Escape is a custom built all-log cabin set on several wooded acres. Accessible by ALL PAVED roads and driveway, the cabin offers ample off-street parking for 4+ vehicles. With only 5 steps to the front door, your arrival and unpacking will be easy!
Inside Appalachian Escape Cabin, you will see the thoughtful blend of traditional and modern. Hand-hewn hemlock log walls, exposed beams, gleaming hardwood floors throughout, rustic log furniture are all reminiscent of traditional craftsmanship. Designer pine cone motif light fixtures accent all-log interior.
Floor to ceiling, stone-clad two-sided fireplace beckons you in to snuggle into one of the comfy leather sofas. Watch a movie on a 48” HDTV. Play a game or two on a rustic log pool table. Relive the fun days playing Pacman, Centipede or any of the 48 classic 80s games on the upright arcade.
Fabulous and functional modern kitchen opens into the spacious dining area, so you can create your meal and entertain at the same time. Soft-close cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, custom chiseled-edge granite counter-tops and a large island complete the look.
Dining room has fireplace and a farm-style table seats 10 guests. The expansive kitchen island offers seating for 6, giving your group ample room to mingle or to enjoy sit-down meals together.
Appalachian Escape offers seclusion and privacy while still being close to all the area attractions. Take in the serenity of the Smoky Mountains with wooded and seasonal mountain ridge views. Variety of native plants and trees grow in the cabin’s own backyard - you will feel like you are already in the Smoky Mountains national park. See the flame azaleas and Pink Lady Slippers bloom in spring, followed by rhododendrons in the Summer. Rock away in the rocking chairs on the full-length, covered porch. Have a relaxing dinner on the porch or gather around picnic table and charcoal grill in the yard. Roast marshmallows and make s ‘mores by the back yard fire pit. After a full day of fun, soak in the 5-person hot tub. The expansive, relatively flat backyard has enough room to play. Kids will love the “little log cabin” playhouse, built from the trees harvested on the property.
Whether your idea of a dream vacation is to “hide away” with family and friends, or to enjoy the many area's activities and attractions, escape to Appalachian Escape and find it all! Most desirable local destinations such as Downtown Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Aquarium, zip lines and more are all within easy driving distance.
We'd like you to know that Appalachian Escape Cabin is not a company owned rental business. It is a family owned and cherished vacation home, where we eventually plan to retire to. When we were building the cabin, we blended traditional and rustic elements with today's conveniences and amenities. We also added our unique personal touch by creating or restoring many of the furniture and decor pieces. We hope that you will cherish your time at Appalachian Escape as much as we do, and treat the cabin with care and respect it deserves.
When you compare Appalachian Escape to other cabins of similar size, you will realize that you get more value and better experience with us!
