About Mary Pace - Hunker Down

My dream was to own a cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains. I have been visiting GSM since late 60's. My husband and I purchased the cabin and love visiting Hunker Down.

In February 2014 we purchased property in Tellico Plains, which is still part of the Great Smoky Mountains. It is our goal to begin building cabins in 2015.

Mary Pace - Hunker Down purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Mary Pace - Hunker Down chose Pigeon Forge

We love the location and close to everything. We purchased this cabin because the property had room to enjoy as it is not on top of another cabin. Another plus was it is not hanging over a cliff. The yard is large and plenty of room for the kids to play. The street has five cabins on it but each property is over 1/2 acre and we own up the back of the mountain. There are no cabins directly in front.

What makes this cabin unique

We love to sit on the porch at the pub table and relax. We enjoy both the summer and winter view of the mountain, the quietness of the area and relaxing.

Great vacation at Hunker Down

  • 5 of 5
Very nice cabin,felt right at home. Cozy living room with fireplace,little mason jar lights hanging across the fireplace,lit,awaiting our arrival.Loved the huge porch,sat in rockers enjoying our coffee on the mornings that were still warm enough to do so.Nice bedroom upstairs with a half bath that was convenient in middle of night!We didn't cook there,but you certainly could.Full size washer and dryer made it easier to pack light. We did use the alternate road through the mobile home park quite often,as the incline,or was it upcline was a bit nerve wracking at first...but would do it again in a heartbeat!The cabin was secluded enough,without being in the middle of nowhere.Within 15 minutes you could be in Pigeon Forge,and you should NEVER miss an opportunity to get to the National Park! We just had a wonderful time!

Our stay was perfect! The cabin was great and had everything we needed. We would love to come back and stay here again. The owners are very nice. Everything was very clean. Just a short drive to main drag of pigeon forge so it was perfect for us.

Newlyweds

My new wife and I really enjoyed our 7 night stay at Hunker Down! It was a prime location to see the wonderful sights of the GSM. It was a little tough to find when we were checking in, mainly because a big thunderstorm blew through the area that night and the power was knocked out in some areas on our way to the cabin. Once we got to the cabin we fell in love with it. The 7 day stay was definitely not enough. The owners put together a book of sights to see during your stay and I would definitely recommend it to everyone that stays there. It also lists different short cuts around the area to bypass all the traffic.(especially on the weekends) The bed was very comfortable, as was the recliner and couches. It was a little too warm to really enjoy the hot tub on the porch, but we went out to it a couple times in the evening. You can hear all the sounds of the wildlife around the area. It was very peaceful and relaxing. At the end of our stay we were sad to leave Hunker Down, but we will definitely want to stay there again on our next visit.

This property provided exactly what I wanted when I signed up to visit it. It was in a good location and fairly secluded. It felt like a home away from home and had all the amenities that were advertised. As newly weds, we spent a lot of time at the cabin and enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to get away from the crowds, but still be close enough to the sites to enjoy them without having to drive very far.

Hunker down and stay forever!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, son and I just returned from our week long stay at this aptly named and beautifully appointed cabin. Mary is fantastic to work with and her cabin is just as wonderful as she is. From the gorgeous furnishings to the wonderful "guide book" (back road shortcuts were spot on!!!), she has thought of everything to make this cabin special. My son loved the jacuzzi (kid was all pruney and refused to get out) and the loft room (which he had all to himself) and we loved the pub table on the porch (nightly cut throat matches of spades and uno). And the one day of rain during our vacation meant we got to stay put and veg out to cable TV (FREE movies in HD) and play on the Wii! Truly we had a perfect vacation. And did I mention the wildlife you get to see? Raccoons and foxes visited us a few times and the boy thought it was the best thing. Ever! Husband was pretty stoked too. :P

Hunker Down is perfectly located on the mountain near enough to the sights and action of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg (easy 15 minute drive..again SHORTCUTS) without having to stay on the main drag in an over priced hotel. And because of the kitchen and grill, we even saved some money by cooking at "home" rather than eating out every night! Hunker Down was our home away from home last week and we loved every minute of it. So much so that we didn't want to leave yesterday!

If you are looking for a quiet retreat nestled in the heart of all that Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have to offer, without the hustle, bustle and noise of hordes of people, then this is the place you must stay! We definitely want to stay here again if Miss Mary will have us!! Thank you Mary for helping to make our vacation memorable!

Owner's Response: I apologize for not responding sooner. It has been a bit nuts at work!

Thank you so much! Knowing a family enjoyed Hunker Down as much as I do truly made my day. However, I am jealous.... I have never seen a fox there!

You are most very definitely welcome to make Hunker Down your vacation destination again.

Our cleaner sent me the picture of the letter you left. Thank you so much for taking the time and writing it! I will get it from them when I get up there, block out the personal info, and add it to the binder.

Hope you mastered the tricks in your Spades Master competition! LOL (love that game).

Thank you again so much for your kind words and hope to hear back from you soon.

Regard,
Mary & Mason
