Overview

Parrottsville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (beds for 6)

Are you an animal lover who would love to vacation at a place where there is peace and quiet as well as all kinds of animals, both domestic and wildlife, to watch? Do you stress when planning a vacation because you can’t bring your dog(s) along? Would you love to bring your horse(s) and ride some new trails? Would you like to have unlimited long distance calling available rather than trying to use your cell phone in our mountainous area? Then Cabin at Autumn Dancer Llama Farm is the place for you. The cabin is situated on 17 acres of beautifully rolling hills directly below Meadow Creek Mountain. For your canine family members (we allow up to 5 dogs..size doesn't matter), we offer 1/4 -acre of fenced backyard so that they may run and frolic as well as a fenced deck. We've replaced the backyard fence and have added pictures showing the cabin with the new fence.

Our cabin has three bedrooms and two full baths. The Master bedroom has a king sized bed, and its own bathroom. The other two bedrooms each have a queen-sized bed.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans, a crock pot, electric roaster pan, coffee pot, toaster oven, two slice toaster, and many other items for folks who want to do their own cooking. There is seating for 6 at the kitchen table, although there are also TV trays and other chairs if there are more than 6 people.

The living room has a flat screen TV with both a DVD and VCR player available for your convenience.

The back porch is where everyone likes to sit and enjoy the view. There is a large hot tub on the deck with two separate sitting areas. We have a professional gas grill that is hooked up to our large propane tank so you will never have to worry about bringing your own propane. There are also BBQ utensils housed underneath the grill. The backyard and upper deck are fully fenced for the safe containment of your pets.

Our Farm:

We have a working farm in the foothills of the Cherokee National Forest. Our farm is 100+ years old (it was originally a dairy farm back in 1900) and has an extensive history. The cabin was originally the hired man's house (although it has been totally renovated) and the 100+ farmhouse across the street is where we live. A road divides the cabin and the farmhouse which allows everyone to have their privacy. We will welcome our guests when they first check in to make sure everything is okay at the cabin. Otherwise, we are out and about twice a day to feed the Llamas and horses; if our guests have questions about the Llamas/horses or need our assistance at the cabin then we are available. Otherwise, we try and stay invisible so our guests can have their privacy.

Our seven equines (one huge draft horse on down to miniature donkeys) will often come up to the back fence to welcome the “newcomers.” It’s amazing how many dogs have never been “up close and personal” with a horse! It will be like a dude ranch for you and your dogs!

Near sundown, our guests find it very entertaining to watch the donkeys at play. They will run and chase each other while kicking their hooves in the air. Most of our equines are rescued animals, so it’s especially heartwarming to see them enjoying life.

Bring Your Horse(s): For our guests who would like to bring their own horse, we offer a 2.5 acre guest pasture with a three-sided walk-in that can easily protect two horses. We even provide an electric fan in the shed when it’s hot!

You can park your horse trailer right next to the pasture. The guest pasture is very close to the cabin, maybe a one-minute walk. Once you have your horse(s) saddled, you ride down the pathway directly in front of the cabin which will take you toward the many horse/hiking trails that are offered in this area, within minutes you’ll be heading up to the Cherokee National Forest.

The Llamas: For those who may like more exotic animals, we have a working llama farm. Presently, we have 9 gelded males (3 are trained to pack); 10 breeding females; and 2 sires.

Take a look at the amenities area on our page to get an idea of other things that we have to offer. Included is an entertainment guide that will give you ideas of the entertainment available in this area. We have an entertainment notebook at the cabin that includes some additional ideas on some interesting things to check-out while you are here!

To get sense of what others think about our cabin, you may want to read our reviews. These may help you to determine if our cabin would fit your needs.

With all the farm animals and things to do in this area, we have never had anyone complain that they were bored staying at Autumn Dancer Llama Farm and Cabin Rental. We hope to see you soon!

About Ed or Ginny Miller

We are Ginny & Ed Miller. I'm a native Texan (with roots in Tennessee) while Ed is from Upstate New York. We lived in the Clear Lake City, Texas area for 21 years where we worked for NASA/Johnson Space Center. From Houston, we moved to Colorado Springs for a year and then Washington, DC for 17 years. Ed worked for the Department of Defense while I worked in the human resources field in several different industries.

Ed or Ginny Miller purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Ed or Ginny Miller chose Parrottsville

Ed's brother moved to Parrottsville and was married here. The reception was held at a local resort within walking distance of our cabin. Family members stayed at the cabin prior to us purchasing it from the resort, less than 6 months later. We fell in love with the quiet beauty of this area. It took us almost 4 years before we were able to move to Parrottsville and enjoy this 'little piece of heaven' on a full-time basis.

Excellent in EVERY way!

  • 5 of 5
Having just returned from our trip today, I was surprised to see the review below that was less than five stars. Nothing in life is perfect, but I can't imagine anyone expecting more than what comes with the very reasonable price for this vacation destination. It is a farm... Not Club Med... and it is AWESOME!

We stayed for almost a week with two seniors (my in-laws), our two teen kids and two dogs. Every one of us would have gladly stayed several days longer. Ginny has the cabin so well equipped that we were able to cook an entire Thanksgiving dinner from scratch, for six, without needing to bring a single pan or utensil! There is literally every comfort of home, and then some.

Ed and Ginny are just wonderful hosts. They invited us to meet the animals. It is clear that each of them is greatly loved and well cared for. The animals truly enhance the view, which is beautiful enough without them. We took a day trip to Gatlinburg and a half day to Pigeon Forge. The kids enjoyed both but would not have felt cheated if we hadn't. We played games, used the hot tub, watched football, took family walks and just generally had quality time to spend together in a place that is worry free in almost every way.

It's a good distance from town. Expect to take a half hour both ways if you need to make a run. But Ginny will also pick something up for you if you need it during the week and offers to have groceries waiting for you on arrival if you give her a list.

Ginny and Ed both go out of their way to make their guests feel at home. My husband had to join us late on the second night. They called before going to bed to ask me not to hesitate to wake them if he got turned around coming in in the dark so Ed could go find him and lead him in.

It is important that you follow their gently presented instructions specifically, as the mountains and even a farm can be dangerous. We were very lucky in that one of our dogs got away from us and bit one of the llamas. The vet was astounded that the dog wasn't killed. Ginny and Ed handled our agregeous mistake with true grace and did their best not to make us feel any worse about the situation than we already did.

But if you mind your little ones carefully, two-legged or four and take head to their words of wisdom, this couple and their beautiful cabin in the Smokies will provide you and your family with an experience you will cherish for many years to come. We all are looking forward to going back!

Looking forward to our next visit

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time at Autumn Dancer Llama Farm and we are already looking forward to our third stay there. From the great welcoming hospitality of Ginny and Ed to the wonderful mornings and peaceful evenings on the covered wrap around deck looking out at the horses and the surrounding country side to the totally, and we mean totally, stocked cabin our stay could not have been any better. We and our pups thank you.

relaxing, quite and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
Ever since I saw the llama farm, I knew that's where I wanted to go. Our grandson who lives with us drove my husband, me and our three dogs. We loved it ! We would sit on
the covered porch and watch the dogs run and bark at the animals. Everything was great,
ceiling fans on porch, hot tub, and a gas grill ! I would recommend this property to everyone and bring the dogs !! Eat at Old Mill restaurant in Pigeon Forge, light # 7 .

Nice Weekend Getaway!

  • 4 of 5
I will start off by saying Autumn Dancer Llama Farm is in a beautiful area. I prefer going to a cabin like this one over any cabin in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. There was zero traffic anywhere we went, unless it was downtown Greeneville or Newport. All the surrounding mountains and farmland was gorgeous. The cabin itself was fully stocked with everything we needed for a weekend stay. The gas grill worked great and we were able to enjoy a nice bbq one evening. Everything was neat, tidy and clean. The hot tub functioned perfectly and was a nice way to relax at the end of the day.

My only suggestions for improvement would be that the dishwasher and the furniture in the living room need to be replaced. The couch and chair in the living room were clean and they looked nice, but no one was able to sit on them for more than 15-20 minutes without being uncomfortable and needing to get up. The couch was very firm (since it is a sleeper) and the seat of the chair was broken down so you feel like you’re sinking down into it. We did read the note stating the dishwasher would take longer to cycle for energy saving purposes but it almost seems defective. Our cycle did take over 2 hours and then the dishes still came out dirty and we had to hand wash them. My suggestion would be to get an Energy Star rated dishwasher that still saves energy, but will not take as long to cycle and should get all the dishes properly cleaned. One other thing I feel needs to be mentioned is, although this cabin technically does sit on 17 acres of farm land you are not entirely secluded. The cabin sits directly in the owner’s back yard, it is literally just a few feet away. We were slightly disappointed about this since the description seemed to make it appear that it is private, and is in the middle of the acreage of the farm, but it is not.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Our dogs enjoyed being able to run freely in the fenced in yard and observe the farm animals. We were impressed with the condition of the cabin and everything that was provided for us. The llamas were fun to interact with and the “lawn ornaments” gave us hours of entertainment , watching them run, roll around and play together. If you are looking for something different to explore and experience “true” country living for a little bit without the crowds and the traffic you should give this a try!

Owner's Response: We appreciate all feedback that our guests give us and take them to heart. The dishwasher is an Energy Star dishwasher and we have had Lowes out to check it out as the cycles were so long. Lowes assured us that the dishwasher was working properly; new dishwashers now save water and not electricity. It concerns me that the dishes appear to not be clean and we will check this out.The sleeper couch is brand new; I'm sorry the couch and chair were uncomfortable. We cannot replace the sleeper couch but will look at the chair to see if something can be done. Regarding us living right next door; this is a working farm and we are next door with a road between the cabin and the farmhouse. We have a large garage and many trees strategically planted to block the view to the cabin. If you are sitting on the back deck at the cabin, the horses would be directly in front in the pasture...they can come up to the backyard fence. Their barn is about 1/2 a football field away from the cabin, so all that open land is your front view. The horse pasture continues all the way around the right of the cabin with a pond within view. When walking out the front door, you'll see a Llama barn with Llamas in the pasture. Looking to the left, you'll see the other side of the road and our 3-car garage angled so the farmhouse is blocked. The garage and trees block our view from the cabin. We try to give our guests privacy and stay out of everyone's way, but we do chores twice a day and at that time, we can be seen. A positive to living across the road is that we are "on-call" 24-hours a day if needed, even in the night. I made an assumption that as a working farm, guests would understand that we live on our farm. With a road between the cabin and farmhouse along with the garage and trees blocking the farmhouse from the cabin, everyone has their privacy.

Dog Heaven

If you want to escape from life for awhile, this cabin is the rx you need! A huge covered porch comfortable enough to be outside from dawn to dusk, even in thunderstorms! No worries about your dog because it's running in the fenced yard while you rock in your chair!
