About Cathie Britt
We would like to invite you to visit our 'home away from home'--a very special place for us and for many of our guests--'Swingin' On A Star'. It is a magical experience every time we visit Gatlinburg and the spectacular beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains and its Mountain Ranges as a playgound in our Backyard. We are truly Blessed and visit several times a year to enjoy this tranquil haven that is beyond words. Our home is yours to share and we welcome you.
Cathie Britt purchased this cabin in 2006
Why Cathie Britt chose Gatlinburg
We had dreamed of having a cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains for many years. It began when I was a little girl. My Mom was born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia which borders the Smoky Mountains. As a little girl I remember playing in the creeks and cupping my hands on the side of the mountain to drink the ice cold pure sparkling mountain water of the Blue Ridge and from that moment a determination grew to have a cabin 'On Top of Old Smoky'. Our home now in the Southeastern part of the country outside of New Orleans, Louisiana created a natural path to the Great Smoky Mountains in order to revisit the mountains close to home and meet family for holidays. After years of visiting our dream became a reality and 'Swingin' On A Star' was born. The name of the cabin, founded by a family contest, is so appropriate as you actually feel as if you are 'Swingin' On A Star' with its Mezmerizing Views facing Mt. LeConte and its Mountain Ranges as far as you can see. Everyone has fun counting the stars both inside and out! Our family has always enjoyed the outdoors and what better place is there to experience all nature has to offer, no matter what the season, but with the Great Smoky Mountains at your doorstep. From hiking the many trails, to motor tours and picnics through the Roaring Fork and Cades Cove, climbing Clingman's Dome, visits to Cherokee, horseback riding and whitewater rafting, witnessing the magic of a Winter Wonderland or the splendor of a Fall Foilage--we've done it all and it's all there for your experience in your own backyard or the National Park only minutes away.
What makes this cabin unique
Our genuine log cabin is quietly nestled amongst the trees above the famous Arts & Crafts Commnunity where you will find the local artists and craftmen's quaint mountain shops, many of whom have become our special friends. We are so fortunate to have found the ideal location for the cabin with breathtaking Pinnacle Views and within Gatlinburg city limits only minutes to Light #3 downtown and the Park Entrance. It is also convenient and minutes to Dollywood and Pigeon Forge area attractions. The cabin is easily accessible with paved roads and level parking which is rare for most cabins in the area. One of our mountain friends has created chain saw carved Bear Friends out of tree trunks to greet you! There is 'Frankie & Star'--our nine foot mama bear & her cub, a 'Bear Fence' with each post animated, 'Teddy' by the kitchen window and 'Lucky Star' actually 'Swingin' On A Star' to begin your mountain adventure with a smile on your face. Only a few steps and you are in your retreat which is great for Grandparents and small children. We also wanted to make sure the cabin had two covered decks, which is also uncommon for most cabins, in order to shelter you no matter what nature brings--snow, rain or shine--you can walk out and enjoy the spectacular beauty of the Smokeys--it is magical watching the weather change each minute. And there is nothing like having Spellbouding Views no matter where you are inside or out of the cabin. Lastly, we have traveled through the years to many places and wanted to make sure our cabin was a culmination of many meticulous details and amenities that offers an experience of peace, comfort and ultimate luxury. Each and every treasure throughout the cabin has been handpicked and chosen to make 'Swingin' On A Star' our home to share with you--our special guests. We believe you will find it to be a one of a kind, relaxing and captivating mountain retreat and we wish you the same peaceful serenity we experience each time we visit.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Trip Advisor Review 5 Stars: Our family of 4, and 2 extended family members stayed in "Swingin' on a Star" in Gatlinburg for a week at the end of May/beginning of June. I simply can't say enough good things about our whole experience!
A week before arriving, I opted to do the express check in, in order to avoid going to the Timber Tops office in Sevierville. We were told to give the office a call on the day of our arrival, and a code would be provided for us to access the cabin.
Upon arriving in Gatlinburg (I recommend calling while in town, cell reception can be spotty in the mountains), we called and received our code to unlock to door. WOW!! The cabin lived up to all the pictures online, and then some! It was absolutely beautiful!
We found it to be very clean, and well stocked. I am amazed at the amount of detail in this cabin. It was simply gorgeous. The owners have put some serious love into the place. Nothing was overlooked, and I am willing to bet you would be hard pressed to come up with a need that wasn't provided for in that cabin. Everything from nightlights, to flashlights, picnic basket...you name it, it's there!
The decks are situated so that you feel as if you are the only one on the mountain...very private. Such beautiful views, and gorgeous landscaping around the cabin.
Our kids loved the pool table and arcade, as well as "Buck" the singing deer, and of course the jacuzzi. We are already planning a return trip next year.
