About the property

In 1882 the Caton family settled on a 1000 acre farm. At the turn of the 1900's the family had developed a small town with a grist mill, a general store, a post office and Ed's Mill which was a machine shop.

During the depression the US Government purchased most of the Caton farm for the forming of The National Park and the family moved away and the town was abandoned. In the 1950's with the building of Interstate 40, the family returned to their home. The house was turned into a boarding house for the highway workers. When Ed died in 1968 May moved to live with her daughter and the property remained vacant for 18 years.

While vacationing in 1986 Ray and Pattie Blackman form Pascagoula, Mississippi discovered the property was for sale and fell in love with he waterfall and the history of the property. They decided to purchase and restore the dilapidated buildings into rental cabins for others to enjoy the majestic beauty thus creating what is now Serenity Falls.

The Blackman family decided to retire in 2016 and the Hansen-Marshall Family from Baltimore fell in love and Purchased the property in winter 2016. Ken, a contractor from Baltimore, and Sue, a retired policewoman from Baltimore, are carrying on the legacy of the town and plan to build cabins and host weddings on the remaining 80 acre tract.

Tillie's Stall has been converted to a studio cabin with a covered porch overlooking the creek and walking distance to a spectacular view of Serenity Falls, the largest privately owned waterfall in Tennessee.

If you have more than 2 people in your party you can book Ed's Mill (982930) sleeps 6 The General Store (982931) sleeps 8, and Will's Barn (982933) sleeps 6. We can accommodate a group up to 22 people. We are dog friendly with an additional fee. Please search by VRBO number to check availability.

If you want to hike or just want to enjoy nature we are less than five minutes to the Cosby Campground - Great Smoky Mountains National Park entrance. Let your car rest and relax while you explore and hike to discover parts of history on our 75+ acres. (Scavenger hunt coming soon)

If you feel like an adventure to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge we are about 30 minutes away with a straight shot down Highway 321 to the heart of Gatlinburg.

Quiet mountain getaway

  • 3 of 5

The host was very friendly and kind, they were having a Fall Featival party near the cabin, nice big bonfire, carving pumpkins, and offered us all the s’mores we could make.

The little babbling creek runs directly past the cabin and puts a spell on you through the night. There was a small waterfall on the property as well.

There were a few things a miss, shower curtain only covered half the bathtub, the bathroom door wouldn’t completely shut, and finally the WiFi was evident but the password didn’t match. We explained this to the host but they insisted it was correct. I’m in IT and I’m positive it didn’t match.

However, overall, it was a nice time and I didn’t need to be on my phone after all, I didn’t go there to surf the internet.

Tillies stall is the smaller of all the cabins but is very nice and comfortable. The owners are very welcoming and make you feel right at home. The property is beautiful with creeks, small waterfalls and trails. We can’t wait to come back and bring family and friends.
