Overview

About the property

Great view in great neighborhood. Close to the park & convenient to Gatlinburg

Beautiful Luxury 5bd/3bath home with mountain views from 3 levels.

This beautiful log cabin is perfect get-away for family or friends. Sleeps 12 comfortably + a sleeper for up to 2 more: Master bedroom with King, 3 additional bedrooms with Queen beds, a 5th room sleeps 4 with queen over queen bunk bed, and sleeper sofa if needed in living room.

Convenient to Smoky Mountain national part, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge (Dollywood). Short day trip to Cherokee casino or Biltmore House.

Just renovated cabin

Lots to do with pool table in game room, amazing hot tub, lots of rockers for reading and just relaxing, wrap around porch, flat screen TV's in all rooms, and large projector in multimedia room. Lots of wildlife we often see a family of deer and on occasion we will see a black bear and her cubs.

Our plan is to take a break for until 2016 and then launch a project every few months.

Our neighborhood hosts 3 pools, golf course, and for larger events ability to rent space from the neighborhood HOA office at the very top of the mountain.

We purchased this property late last year. Our friends call our remodel a rebuild as we have gutted 3 levels to take this 1970s cabin into the 21st century. it was very trying and everything took longer than expected. We try to continually enhance the property.

Janan & I are already planning phase 2 construction projects after we pay down some of the debt we took on with this renovation and invite our guests to help set the priority of improvements. These include:

1) Removing the lower level bath tub, pushing the wall back a foot or 2 and installing a tiled shower with modern glass instead of shower curtains.

2) Adding a more inviting front entrance. Basically extending a gable out toward the driveway and a little stone work.

3) Upgrading the main level bath with tile and raise the ceiling a touch.

4) level out area on outside area for installation of picnic table & horse shoe pits.

About Ed Tollefsen

We are a family of 3 with aspirations of retiring to the mountains and managing 3 to 5 properties after 2020.

In 2014, we decided to take over the daily management of the property and Janan took over booking and management. We've had a couple hiccups but overall the experience has been delightful. Our hope is that the cabin & your stay in this beautiful city is a lifelong memory.

Ed Tollefsen purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Ed Tollefsen chose East

We bought the property in October 2014 as a distressed foreclosure. We loved the view and the neighborhood and decided to restore this wonderful old cabin. The renovations took a life of their own as it became a bit of a rebuild.

We have enjoyed bringing this 1970's property up to 21st century standards. Our goal has been to bring modern convenience while maintaining a unique country cabin feel.

What makes this lodge unique

Convenient to Smoky Mountain National Forest, Gatlinburg. short drive to Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, and Biltmore Estate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family spent part of the Christmas holiday at Ed and Janan's home. They are lovely hosts. He promptly answered any questions I had before and during our stay. Their home is lovely, well equipped and very clean. We especially loved the wrap around porches ,looking into the mountains. We would definitely stay here again!



Response from Ed & Janan:

Thanks Tracy it was a pleasure having you. Please come again soon. in fact we are open this weekend :).

Spectacular Experience

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the cabin.The overall appearance was more than we expected. Everything we possibly needed was available for use. This property was clean and well maintained for our stay. We enjoyed being downstairs in the entertainment area. The projector tv screen and pool table was a big hit for my family. My husband and I enjoyed the hot tub together. Our family meal time was awesome in the spacious kitchen! The mountain view was amazing!

Our only problem was that the grill wasn't working properly. My husband loves to grill and as he prepared to fire it up; it wouldn't stay lit.

I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

My family and I will be returning to this property again.

A lovely cabin in the moutains

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is great. Cobbly Nob is a beautiful mountain communinity. Gatlinburg is wonderful. We had an awesome time. The only suggestion we would make would be a sound bar for the TV in the main living room. The TV was very difficult to hear. And just a heads up the shower heads are extremely low. When you have a 6'5" inch husband you always make note of things like this. Neither of these issues would keep us from staying at this cabin again. They are simply observations. The owner's were very responsive via email and text messages and extremely easy to book with.

Spacious home for 12 guests

  • 4 of 5

This home had a modern kitchen with new appliances and an island. Each bedroom had its own TV. The master suite included a fireplace and a balcony with a stunning view. The driveway was a bit challenging but provided plenty of space for 4 cars. Jacuzzi was clean. The entertainment area had a nice pool table and a big projector screen.

The open concept of the house accentuates the noise level a bit.

We had a good time during our family reunion.

Heavenly Haven

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't leave a more positive review. The home was immaculate upon arrival and absolutely perfect for our group of 12. The views were spectacular and the property was gorgeous. The kids loved the game room downstairs which allowed the adults some much needed time to themselves! There was seating for 12+ at the dining table and counter so everyone could sit together for family meals. The home was conveniently located a short distance from downtown Gatlinburg attractions and some convenience stores.

Ed was available by phone and text for any questions we had. This was an unbelievable rental and we hope to return again soon.

Owner's Response: Lauren, Thank you for the kind words. I visited just after your stay and made a few minor improvements. The gamebox is hooked up correctly. The fogged over windows are replaced. There were lots of minor things as well. My goal is to keep the property in top shape for each guest. Please come see us again soon. best regards ed
