About Vi

Lives close by and loves the Smoky Mtns. We are retired and very active and wanted to get Into something else so we decided to take on a rental cabin. During our marriage we moved quite a lot due to my husbands work and we settled here in East Tennessee and we love it here. We have our children and grandchildren all living here as well.

Vi purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Vi chose East

Proximity to Parkway is what attracted us to it as well as the wall of windows because you can not see any other homes

What makes this cabin unique

1 mile to Parkway. Easy to get to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. Close to shuttle pick up as well

Beautiful Mountain Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our family of 7 which included 3 couples and 1 child. The location was perfect as many have stated it is nestled up in the beautiful mountains but an easy drive to get to the cabin. Very quiet and secluded unlike the cabin we stayed in before. Perfect location just on the other side of Pigeon Forge about 5 miles from Gatlinburg. There are 4 levels to the cabin and it is very spacious. The lowest level has a king size bedroom and full bath with shower and sink and the washer and dryer. Level 2 is the game room and bar area with a half bath and screened in porch. Level 3 (or in other words the main level with the front door) has the queen sized bedroom, full bath with really nice shower, kitchen, and beautiful dining room/sun room. Finally, Level 4 is the master bedroom with king size bed, large walk in closet, and full bath with jacuzzi tub and vanity (no shower). The main level does not have a tv but who has time for that except maybe at night time before bed! All bedrooms have a TV! The cabin has everything you could need and more! We made all of our meals at the cabin and had everything we needed. Vi left us a very thoughtful welcome gift and was readily available to answer any questions! It was a great stay and I was really sad to leave! What a dream to wake up in the mountains in a beautiful cabin. Who needs the beach?!

Great football game weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over a weekend so we could attend a UT football game. It was super clean and the owner was very friendly and communicated with us via text the entire weekend. We enjoyed playing pool and grilling shrimp out on the grill! The house is exactly how it is pictured beautiful and clean throughout!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! Everything was great. The view was amazing when we were on the back porch it felt like we we're in a tree house! Would love to go again next year! Thanks for everything, Vi!!

Very Nice Home

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home. It just wasn't made for our family. With 2 small kids under 2 yrs of age we really missed the TV on the same level as the kitchen. We knew that in the beginning, and thought it would be fine. However we moved more seating into the sitting room. So that we could enjoy the grand babies while preparing meals. kitchen was filled with anything you needed. We stayed on the go, so we didn't get to enjoy the quietness of the mornings and evenings. Location of this home was great. Parking was so so. We have an extended bed truck, so it was hard to get it out of the road. The kids didn't have any trouble parking, because they had shorter cars. Overall we had a very nice stay. Everything was well supplied. If they ever put a TV on the kitchen / main level we would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We appreciate you staying with us. We realize not every cabin will work for every family. We don't put a TV on the main level because of all the windows. One wall is all windows. There are 4 TV's and a TV for the family in the rec room. There is additional parking right below the house. Under the description of the property on the site it states the additional parking. So glad you found that the location worked for you and that it was well stocked. Thank you again for staying with us!
