Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is great. It looks just like the pictures. When we arrived, everything was clean. Our kids loved the loft with twin beds - it was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the pool table, hot tub and the almost wrap around porch - we sat outside every morning while drinking coffee. A couple of mornings it was 55 degrees. This cabin is in a good location, not far from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Metcaff Bottoms picnic area is a great place for you to get in the water and it is not far from the cabin. Cades Cove has a nice picnic area. It was nice to find some ice chest down stairs that we could use and some grill tools at the back door. Loved the views and the mountains around us. Thank you Charlotte.

Awesome Whisperwind Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Arrived late on Saturday night. Cabin was easy to find and was just immaculate. We stayed for ten days and had everything we needed in cabin. Lots of dishes which we tried not to use too much of, since we were on vacation. We were close to Cades Cove which we love and it wasn't far to Townsend, Maryville,
Pidgeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We tried a lot of the local restaurants and don't forget to stop at the local vegetable stands. The tomatoes are wonderful. I would highly recommend Whisperwind Cabin to anyone that would like to be near everything.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5
The house was gorgeous! Loved the "animals" in the house!! Very clean, kitchen was well stocked with cooking supplies (pots, pans, etc). This was a "relaxation" vacation, and were a little disappointed in the small tv's. Enjoyed the pool table - spent lots of time playing pool -- and we enjoyed the hot tub!! Location was great - only abou 15 minutes to the Parkway in Pigeon Forge. We would highly recommend this house!! Very peaceful and quiet location!!

A piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time on vacation and this cabin was absolutely beautiful. Charlotte and Laurence put many small decorating details into this cabin and it was so cozy and comfortable. It was also away from everything and just to have the peace and quiet was a blessing. Charlotte you are an absolute joy to deal with. The cabin was also very clean!! And the trees and mountains were spectacular.

Wonderful relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
We loved the cabin! It was very clean and had everything we needed. The kids loved the pool table and the games in the basement along with the hot tub! We took our bikes and were able to go for a family bike ride around the neighborhood while enjoying the views of the surrounding mountains....awesome! We also took advantage of the 5 minute drive to the Metcaff Bottoms picnic area. The picnic area is great! Many picnic tables spaced out along the river where you can play and walk out on the rocks in the river. Another family favorite spot nearby, is the country store right around the corner with an ice cream and fudge shop (I would recommend the hot apple turnover with the cinnamon ice cream on top!) I can't say enough about how great our stay was! Thank you, Charlotte for all the wonderful tips and information you provided to make our stay even better!!

Notes:
GOT WILDLIFE? YES WE DO! ~ Occasionally a Black Bear will mozy through & steal 'dinner' from our fruit trees. If you beat the bear to the fruit, please pick & enjoy it, for us! GEESE~There are several ponds scattered around the valley & the geese make these their home. When we hear them coming -honking- we rush outside to the deck to watch them fly over, often at tree top level. Sometimes it's just a pair & other times it's the whole flock! SQUIRRELS~There are a few squirrels who seem to have adopted the cabin & you will see them scurring about on the outside rafters. We try not to feed them lest we end up with more squirrels than people! BIRDS~Our trees are home to a variety of birds which are a real delight - including the woodpeckers who love to peck holes in our cabin - so we have 'guardian owls' on duty for protection! SKUNKS~We seldom see them, but we can smell when they've been around! RABBITS~You'll often catch them hopping & nibbling along the back yard tree line!
