About Amelia McCarter

I grew up on this farm and watched my dad build three cabins on it. One for each of his kids! What a remarkable man! So excited to be able to own this beautiful cabin!

Why Amelia McCarter chose Sevierville

This property was recently given to me by my late father. He put so much work into building this cabin years ago and he loved renting it out for nightly rentals. I have always loved this cabin and I take pride in owning it now!

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin was hand built by one man, not by a construction company like most cabins. He designed the cabin and cut each log! It is such a beautiful cabin on the perfect piece of land.

Absolutely Fantastic Private Clean Country Setting Cabin minuets to both Pigeon Forge & Gatlingburg

  • 5 of 5

This has been by FAR our absolute best stay in the Smokies and we have been numerous times on our annual Spring Trip (we just live 2 hours away) and definitely want to stay here again hands down! Most cabins have neighbors around them, this one does NOT! Except cows, yes cows but they have tons of acres to roam so it was fun to just see them out & about! We loved it, myself, husband and our ten year old son enjoyed the pool table, hot tub, and the beautiful deck overlooking the river/creek had us in awe it literally is at your feet, perfect & so relaxing! It is surrounded by land front, back, and sides. Horses near by too, we even seen deer from the back porch in the mornings! Plenty of space for kiddos and lots of room outdoors to run, play, have a fire, fish, explore, see cows and wildlife. I think I read about a cardinal in previous comments that visited the windows each day, we seen this bird too. The fireplace is a bit tricky to get lighted but the owner was prompt about getting instructions on how to light it over within minuets via a phone call/text/email. Clean, Clean, Clean! The one and only thing I would mention is that the couch is a bit dated and is truly due for an upgrade as far as comfort goes for both sitting and sleeping on, we brought an air mattress just in case though after reading others comments, & just maybe a few extra chairs on the back deck would be extra nice if more than 2 people stay (only 2 rocking chairs), but camping chairs work well too if ya got em, it was just enough for us. This place offers what others don't the privacy of feeling like you are truly far away from society up in the woods surrounded by nature & wildlife, yet still very close to the attractions, stores, etc. Affordable too! This cabin is beautiful on this inside and perfectly located! You will love staying here no doubt! We also enjoyed seeing the photo album of the cabin being built by the owners it was an added sentimental value. We visited both Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge during our stay and it was literally only a 15 minute drive for each one! Perfection! We loved our stay here and highly recommend it you won't regret it!!!

The place was amazing. Couldn’t of asked for anything else.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived and walked around the back, there was the river right there. It was so calming. My husband and son had fun playing catch in the front yard, playing pool, and just hanging out. Every morning there was this cardinal that kept trying to get in the window and would sit on the ledge and watch us. I would recommend this to anyone. I definitely will try and make it back here. Also, any questions that I had, were answered very quickly.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay here! It is in a beautiful spot with a lot of space on the property. Being able to sit on the porch and listed to the river go by was great and to be able to sit out by the fire was just what we needed! My kids enjoyed being able to run around outside, visit the horses across the street and the hot tub. My only warning would be that the pull out couch is very uncomfortable, the kids had a hard time with it and it would be worse for adults. We would definitely stay here again though, we may just bring air mattresses for the kids. The neighbors were very nice as well and invited my kids to come visit the horses in the barn and told them all about the horses and the barn.

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is exactly as described. Any question I had was immediately answered, the owner is SUPER HELPFUL and very nice! I rented this cabin to stay away from the crowds and access the National Park for hiking (if you want the crowds, the drive to town is only 20 minutes). I hiked during the day and soaked my cares away at night. Outside temps around 0° and the hot tub didn't miss a beat, worked perfectly! I don't want too many people to know about my new found honey hole! Thank you for sharing your lovely cabin with me Amelia! I can't wait to come back and visit!
