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

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.

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.

MY WIFE MY DOG AND I

  • 5 of 5
The place was as perfect as could be. It had a yard for our dog and the perfect seclusion for us. Every thing was as advertised and we would not only recommend but come back our selves. The hill leading to the cabin is not as bad as I've read and the other road through the trailer park was just up dated and worked just fine. The owner and maintenance man were wonderful people.

GREAT TIME!

  • 4 of 5
Cabin was nice & as shown in the pictures. Could have been a bit cleaner/fresher, but I would imagine it's a tough upkeep. Everything worked & we enjoyed staying there very much! The owners were very nice, helpful, & accessible. We would definitely stay there again.

GREAT GETAWAY CABIN! THE FIREPLACE AND HOT TUB ARE PERFECT FOR WINTER WEATHER! THE OWNERS ARE GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is cozy, clean and rustic. We never left the cabin! If you love the imenities at home like big flat screen TVs in every room and wifi, this cabin has it! My husband and I played wii for the first time, and now we want one! It was fun. We read, I knitted, and we ate. The kitchen is just right for cooking and everything was very clean. :0) you need to bring a fire starting log (it was raining, so no kindling) and our 4-wheel drive was helpful to get to the cabin. The stairs are steep to the loft bedroom (if you have weak legs) but, this is the perfect place. It's close to all kinds of activities and shops that Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have to offer, but we decided to stay in and do those things another time. We had the BEST anniversary and will definitely be going back. It is a simple cabin in the woods, with TV, wifi, netflix, wii, and a great hot tub, fireplace, and a great front-loading washer and dryer. We couldn't have been more pleased. We wish we could have stayed for a week instead of a weekend. And we could have brought our dog, and wish we would have.

VERY PEACEFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Cabin was exactly as described. The owners must have updated the water because there was no smell at all for my family. It was a very cozy and comfortable cabin and felt like home. I have stayed in others where it was just plain uncomfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer and hopefully can book again in April. Thanks for considering pets as my lab Charlie loved smelling every inch of grass!! Oh and the electronics are great!! As I said, the other cabin I stayed in was in one of those "resorts" and I paid almost double and didn't even have a flat screen led! Great owners and great cabin. The location is a tad bit remote but I like it that way. We had no problems getting up or down the hills but they are steep so be mindful of that.
