Wears Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Secluded cabin yet near everything! Cabin situated on 5 acres on Little Roundtop Way. 10 to 30 minutes to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Sevierville, DollyWood, and Townsend entry to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Cades Cove. Cabin was listed past several years on luxury cabin site by rental company. Rented very well but was poorly treated by some guests. This is our home away from home we simply ask you treat it with respect.

Real log cabin; no fake logs here! If you choose to hang out for a day plenty of room to roam with short walking trails. Large kitchen, dining area and laundry room make it easy to 'stay home'. Can stock up on supplies in Wears Valley or Townsend 5 to 8 minutes away or travel 15-20 minutes to more elaborate shopping in Pigeon Forge.

If you like a 'busy' vacation every day filled with different attractions or if you prefer to 'chill out' and relax in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains this is your place.

2 bedrooms on main floor; 3rd bedroom in loft area with lots of space and it's own bathroom and a 4th bedroom downstairs off the game room. Satellite TV on main floor in great room and one bedroom and in downstairs game room and loft bedroom. Hot tub on gorgeous deck off main floor.

Keywords: Wears Valley Cabin on 5 private acres, less than 10 minutes from Smoky Mountain National Park Townsend entry to Cades Cove; 20 minutes to Pigeon Forge, 25 minutes Gatlinburg, 25 minutes to Sevierville; within 30 minutes of most major attractions in Great Smoky Mountains!

About Tina

My wife and I are small business owners. We are involved in a financial planning business, rental property and even a sewing/monogramming business. We are both CPA's and I also am a CFP. We have four children ages 7 to 15. Life revolves around family for us. Our children are home schooled, we enjoy outdoor activities, sports and are active in our church. Primary hobbies are hunting, fishing, sewing and watching football.

Tina purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Tina chose Wears Valley

Our family has vacationed in this area for over 20 years and extensively for the past 5 years. Our children love the area and the attractions. We frequent Cades Cove, DollyWood, Sevierville Knife Works, just to mention a few. However, we also enjoy the privacy and seclusion of the property. We love staying 'at home' playing ping pong, pool and just enjoying outdoors in this beautiful area. My wife and I began visiting in the Wears Valley region in the early 80's and discussed buying property for years. We finally took the plunge in 2008 and purchased our own property after years of renting other cabins. We vacation at least one full week here every year.

What makes this cabin unique

Location is a major benefit. You can reach most major attractions in the Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Sevierville, Wears Valley area in less than 30 minutes depending on traffic. You are close enough to be convenient but also enjoy privacy from traffic and other distractions. We love to visit in the 'off season' between November and January. The whole area is decorated for Christmas. There are fewer people, great shopping, and attractions are not as crowded. An added bonus is occassional snow makes the entire area look like a giant postcard. We are from further south so this is a real treat. However, summer is also great with many water park attractions. Sevierville has an indoor water park so you can have fun in the water with snow on the ground outside. This cabin is large. Often living areas are small even though a cabin may sleep 8 to 10. Our cabin has larger bedrooms and living areas and is about 3,000 square feet versus 1,300 to 1,500 square feet often found in other cabins that sleep 8 to 10 people.

Has potential but our stay was a disaster

  • 1 of 5
This is a nice home in a secluded area and it has a lot of potential. But we had so many problems during our stay that we would never recommend it.
It started out okay with just minor inconveniences when we arrived Sunday- the dryer and ice maker were not working. The repairman came and fixed the dryer on Tuesday afternoon but the ice maker never did work for our stay and we realized with the first load of laundry we did that the drainage hose was not properly connected to drain or plugged because it ended up flooding the whole laundry room which was a mess to clean up. This continued through our stay so our only option was to stand there while the washer ran and hold the tubing in or clean up a mess. Owner was notified.
We had noticed the first night that there were a lot of bats flying out from above the deck at night. The next day and several times a day for the rest of our stay we found large piles of bat droppings inside the house, between the living room and kitchen. The owner was notified and did immediately call to have somebody come out. Unfortunately there wasn't anything that could be done during our stay except trap them inside and wait for them to die which resulted in loud screeching each night when they tried to leave and of course we had to clean up bat droppings several times a day for the rest of the week.
The fire pit would be great - except it's nothing like the pictures. The wood seats are completely rotted with nails sticking out of them so you can't sit on them at all.
The windows were filthy and covered with thick cobwebs. I asked if this could be addressed when they came to fix the dryer (she had said the housecleaner was coming with the repairman) but this wasn't done.
There was a large gap in the downstairs doors were the wood had rotted away. This was alarming considering we were surrounded by wilderness. We were told doors were being replaced but not until after we left.
The kitchen was okay, but far from decently equipped. There were enough plates, bowls, glasses and silverware but no cutting board and 1 frying pan. It's difficult to cook breakfast for a group with 1 pan. There were also no grill utensils available, which we didn't realize until after we had the charcoal hot and were ready to put the food on.
With all of the problems we encountered, I requested a refund of 1/2 what we paid. Owner refused and gave us 1 night refund. Not nearly enough for what we dealt with

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 8, including 2 small children enjoyed our stay at your wonderful cabin. Plenty of room for all of us. We had a small blow up pool for the kids and they played in it while we used the hot tub. The kitchen was roomy enough for several of us to work on meals, we cooked all but one in the cabin, and the dining room table fit us all. And of course being able to look out the wall of windows while we were cooking and eating was fantastic. We could see the mountains beyond the trees. Having a w/d is a plus with children. Just 2 hours in the cabin and there was a bear in the backyard! And the kids had so much fun finding lizards in the afternoon sun. The owners were very helpful in finding vegetable stands and medical assistance. The cabin is just off Wears Valley Road which has many neat little shops on it, complete with a little grocery store that carries the basics so we didn't have to travel clear to Pigeon Forge to get milk. The cabin is closer to Townsend and going through it to get to the park was so much easier, less traffic.When in Townsend be sure to check out the Railroad Museum and Captain Dave's Wood Carvings.
A couple of caveats, we had a small issue with bats which left droppings on the deck that needed sweeping each time we used it. But the owners called pest control which arrived that same day.
We got into the cabin early which was wonderful after traveling all night, but it didn't seem to us that the floors had been swept/scrubbed, but everything else was spic and span clean.
Beside that, the owners could not have been more helpful, kind and considerate. And since I have a little space left, the BEDS! You have to run and jump to get into them but it is well worth the effort. Everyone slept well, even the extremely tired parents of 2 young children. And S'mores over the grill are always a sweet treat. We choose not to use the fire pit because the log seats were a little rough. Thanks for a great vacation.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful cabin for a weekend getaway. The cabin is very spacious with a lot of things for the kids and adults to do. The pool table and ping pong table are perfect for the entire family to have fun. The huge porch is ideal for relaxing and enjoying the scenic view as well. The owners were very helpful and extremely courteous. They were more than flexible to accomodate our needs for our stay. We had a wonderful time and will definitely visit again. What a blessing to share great family time in such a perfect setting!

mid-June 12 stay

  • 5 of 5
Nothing but good things to say about this cabin. We stayed for 7 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Unlike the majority of other cabins in this region you get complete serentiy and solitude. Not once did we hear another person while we were relaxing on the porch. There is another cabin close by but we never knew they were there. I suppose if you get rowdy neighbors it may be a bother, but they would have to be pretty loud. The drive to Pigeon Forge took about 20 minutes, Gatlinburg was another 10 but it was nice laying our heads down away from the crowd. The cabin itself was great. I'm sure there are more luxurious cabins out there but we were in no way roughing it. I've never rented a cabin in the Smoky Mountains before, but I'd bet that this is the best bang for the buck around. If you're doing endless searches for a cabin in the Smokies like I did, give some serious thought to this place. I was nervous when I booked it because it had no reviews but I'm glad I did. That's why I feel like I have to post this review, it may be the best kept secret in cabin rentals. If you're looking for a place with easy access to all that East Tennessee has to offer while staying away from the B.S. that the "log cabin communities" will give you, this is it. If you're worried about the damage that was done by past renters, don't. The only thing we noticed was the stains on the pool table felt, but we still played plenty of games and had a great time. If I ever hear of any of my friends planning on visiting this area I will be recommending this cabin to them.

Great Location,Beautiful View and Property

  • 5 of 5
This was my first experience renting a home so i didn' t know what to expect, but it was a great experience. The home was very well kept and clean, it is a large home, we had 9 people and there was more than enough room.The property was very secluded, there is only 1 house nearby but you don't even know its there.There are probably less than a dozen houses on the whole mountain that this cabin is on, and they are spaced very far apart. The location was great, only 20min. to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and you are almost inside the Smokie mtn. Park, Cades Cove is only 10 min. away. Close to everything without the crowds and traffic of Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. You are in the woods on top of a mountain so you will see animals like snakes, lizards, bats, scorpions, maybe a bear but for us that just added to the experience. The Property is actually much better than the photos depict. If I had one negative thing to say It would be that the road leading up to the cabin is very steep and narrow but it is nicely paved. But most roads are like that everywhere in the area even Gatlinburg. So Try to arrive when it is daylight your first time, It will make it a little easier.I will definitely stay here the next time I vacation in the Smokies.
