Wonderful cozy inviting cabin

  • 5 of 5

April and Dave answered questions quickly. The cabin was charming and inviting. The kitchen is well equipped for most cooking needs. The beds were comfortable with the exception of the futon but I’ve never met a comfortable futon. Plenty of comfortable sitting room for the guests. I don’t have anything negative to say about the cabin or the stay. I would recommend a dedicated space for recycling

I Love this Cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fireflies and Moonstone is very pretty, nicely decorated, and clean. The beds were comfortable and so were the recliners and couches. The only complaint I might have is that the stairs and the front door could use a little space between them, but that’s not a dealbreaker in my view of the cabin. I rent cabins in Gatlinburg/Wears Valley normally a couple of times a year and this is by far the nicest I’ve been in for quite a while. Mountain Shadows Resort is a nicely kept resort, and convenient to downtown Gatlinburg. The owners have been great about sending me information about the cabin and staying in contact. My family and I had a great time here and I plan to stay here in this cabin again. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone wanting a nice stay in Gatlinburg.

About April and Dave

We are frequent visitors to the area and love all that is has to offer. We fell in love with the mountains several years ago and are always ready to head back whether it's for hiking, viewing wildlife, taking our kids for walks in nearby creeks, go-carting, or just driving through the beautiful Smoky Mountain National Park to enjoy the scenery. As owners, we have also become involved in the resort and maintain board positions in the Home Owner's Association to participate in the standards, upkeep, and forward progress to benefit all guests. contact: 513-400-4636

April and Dave purchased this cabin in 2016

Why April and Dave chose Gatlinburg

This is our second cabin in the same resort. It was previously owned by a couple as a second home. This cabin is one of the best maintained we've ever seen and has flat parking! The cabin is in a perfect location to enjoy the many activities available in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. It is quiet and relaxing and feels like you are miles from hustle and bustle, yet it is minutes from everything.

What makes this cabin unique

We love this cabin and it shows! You won't find a 2 bedroom cabin with the extra space this one has, or one in better condition anywhere in the area. We are constantly working to improve our guest's experience weather it is a stocked kitchen, fresh stain, tasteful decor or simply fixing that thing that is broken to ensure you have a great time! It is located near the Arts & Crafts Community where you can spend hours (or maybe days) viewing and buying things from local craftspeople. We are about a mile to Rocky Top Sports World. You can sit on the front porch or the back sun room sipping coffee while you plan your day and enjoy the beauty of our cabin's location. This cabin has new granite counter tops and a brand new deck with a hot tub and natural gas grill!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This wonderful and warm cabin is exactly what you need in the Smokies! Super communication with owners, who provide all the info you need in advance and code the door--so keyless--just perfect for coming and going to the Gatlinburg sites. Delighted to find 2 fireplaces that took the chill off in minutes. Also, so nice to have sufficient lamps for reading and separate spaces, the back enclosed porch area superb for relaxing separately from the main areas. Super fast Wi-Fi!. Great information notebook. Comfortable for 3 gals and would be as well for 2 couples or a family of 6---Futon big and comfortable and 2 big bedrooms and nice sized baths. Didn't have a chance to use the big whirlpool tub but will next time. Kitchen has everything you need to make meals. Hot tub lovely. Really cant say enough. Grocery store a mile away, many hiking trails a short drive away. We did Elkmont. Neighbors lovely. We will be back for sure. Gatlinburg has had damage in some parts but the town and businesses are all back for sure. It was a great 4 days in the Smokies. Hosts April and Dave super accommodating to us.
