    • Great mountain side vacation – 5/5 Stars ★★★★★

      Cabin was beautiful. Got to watch the “smoke” roll into and out of the mountains each day. Very clean place. Danny was very polite and great to work with. Close to pigeon forge, gatlinburg, and many other attractions.

    • Spring Vacation –  5/5 Stars ★★★★★

      We arrived on Wednesday, 04/08/15 and found the cabin to be everything that we had hoped for. This was a very nice, clean and up to date cabin located in a secluded location with an awesome view. The only disappointment was with the wifi that seemed to be very slow however the signal was better when using LAN connection. We would definnitely consider staying here again in the future. Thanks for everything….

    • Fabulous Winter Cabin – 5/5 Stars ★★★★★

      For those of you looking for R&R, this cabin is a wonderful place to just hang out and relax. We were snowed-in in this beautiful cabin for a week and we stayed as snug as a bug in a rug. With 4 to 5 inches of snow we never lost power and enjoyed satelite TV, wireless internet, The HOT TUB, and the pool table. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to cook all of our meals, and to eat a good meal with that view was heavenly. The beds were very nice and comfortable as was all the furniture throughout the cabin. We would definately love to stay here again. The owner Danny, was very helpful and even called to check on us during the winter storm.

    • Absolutely Perfect – 5/5 Stars ★★★★★

      Upon arrival my husband and I quickly knew we had made the best choice in cabins. This huge cabin has enough space for any size family. It is located in a very secluded area with easy access. The kitchen was perfect as we had everything we needed to cook and never had to leave for any meal. The beds were heavenly and the whole layout felt very homelike. The view is breathtaking!!! We sat on the porch every chance we got. The wildlife is very friendly too! We had a raccoon literally watch us eat through the large floor to ceiling windows because he must have smelled the steaks we cook on the grill. The game room was so much fun and the hot tub very relaxing. I highly recommend this cabin for any size family because it is perfect. We are already planning our next trip to this cabin.

      Thank you for the amazing rental. The busy-busy-busy of everyday life actually seems to slow down when you get nestled inside this comforting cabin or wrapped up in a blanket on the porch and take in the views of the Smokies. I didn’t want to leave the rockers on the porch because I felt like some wildlife was going to walk across the mountain right in front of me and I didn’t want to miss it! Thanks again….it was a treat to get all the family together away from everything else for a couple days.

  • Perfect Place for Group Getaway! – 5/5 Stars ★★★★★

    This cabin is a wonderful place for family/friends. Located close to Pigeon Forge (literally a few minutes away) the cabin is the perfect headquarters for a Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Smoky Mountain vacation. The owners are super friendly, great with correspondence and quick to reply to any and all questions/concerns. Quiet area, great views, peaceful and serene. We didn’t want to leave! There’s plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and room enough for large groups to hang out together. This is definitely a place we plan on visiting again! Thanks for everything! We loved it. Words can’t express just how impressive it is – pictures certainly don’t do it justice!

Check in time is after 4 pm.
On certain days/times of year the cleaning crew is very busy. They do their level best to have every cabin ready by 4 pm. So the check in time is not carved in stone. There are No refunds if your cabin is not ready by 4 pm.

Your respect and cooperation is greatly appreciated!

Just a Note…

When we started renting cabins we had no rental agreement. As time passed and things happened the rental agreement got started and continues to grow. We make every effort to keep things as simple as possible. Unfortunately, some things need to be spelled out and so the rental agreement is necessary. There is no substitute for common sense. So even if something is not detailed here, if you have doubts, please give us a call. Thanks for understanding.

** Rental Agreements are subject to being updated at any time.**
(and almost certainly will have to be…)
