While the parents are relaxing on the porch or cooking on the gas barbecue grill, they can enjoy the log rockers or the fun picnic table while watching the youngsters play on an awesome playground complete with glider, swings, slide, climbing wall, playhouse, teeter-totter and dome monkeybars.
We hope you enjoy nature and abundant wildlife because wild turkeys wander the meadow and hillsides. It's not uncommon to spot squirrels, raccoon, 'possum, deer and bear in the woods. Spring is enhanced by the hillsides of flowering shrubs and trees. Wildflowers peek through the fallen leaves to delight the hiker. Fall colors sweep throughout the community in vibrant reds, oranges and yellows. You will find miles of scenic spots like the meadow along clear fork creek where you can fly kites, chip golf balls or enjoy a family picnic or a peaceful hike. Magnificent views across the horizon can be seen showcasing beautiful Tennessee sunsets, sunrises and spectacular rolling mountain scenes.
I am the mother of three wonderful children and Mimi to seven fabulous grandchildren. My home is in South Florida but I fell in love with the Smoky Mountains at a young age while traveling with my parents. It has been my lifetime dream to own a cabin, so this opportunity has been my dream come true. We settled on this area because of the abundant activities throughout the whole year. We hope you enjoy staying at our cabin as much as we do and encourage you to explore all that this beautiful region has to offer.
Phyllis Walker purchased this cabin in 2012
My family and I have enjoyed spending holidays in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge so when making the decision to purchase a cabin, it was only natural to start exploring this area for the perfect property suiting our needs. We can now enjoy the mountains throughout the whole year. My ultimate dream is to spend my retirement here in the summer months and winters in South Florida.
My cabin is located on a mountaintop ridge at the end of the road on an acre of mostly flat land. I wanted a secluded, private, quiet and peaceful wooded property that was protected by security. It was important that there was a view of the distant mountains as I like to sit on the deck to watch the sunrise and sunsets.
My family and I enjoyed your cabin tremendously. It made us feel so at home, not needing anything as you did not miss a thing supplying the cabin with all the essentials. Thanks so much!
AWESOME! Everything about this cabin was outstanding! We have rented cabins for several years and this one is by far the best ever!. There were 8 of us that stayed in the cabin and there was plenty of room for everyone. Phyllis hasnt forgotten anything! Plenty of games and movies for the kids, the decor is out of this world! The decorations for Christmas made it even more special! We will rent this beautiful home again! Loved the privacy, and everything about the cabin. This was trully a memorable weekend. Thanks so much Phyllis and thanks for being great to work with! The Blalocks - Whitesburg, Tennessee
As I have been renting cabins for about 10-12 years for a cousins retreat, this cabin is by far the best. The cupboards were stocked with every thing we needed for meal planning. The rooms were well decorated and the cabin was super clean. It was very inviting and felt like our home from the beginning to the end of our stay. I would highly recommend this cabin for family or girls get away and there is a good chance that I will rent this cabin again. Phyllis was great to work with. The road up to the cabin was a little dicey in spots, but we made it without 4 wheel drive
Phyllis was so easy to deal with, very accommodating. I think the rooms were even bigger than they looked in the pictures online, loved all the kitchen space and counter space. The three and a half bathrooms were great since we had several adults mostly female. We enjoyed the decks and the girls liked the hot tub. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.
Tenn is my husbands favorite place to vacation and this lodge made it much more enjoyable
The lodge looked even better in person
My young children enjoyed having the wild rabitt visit us just about every day while we were there
We also saw a wild turkey down the road from us
My husband did say he saw two wolves pass threw the yard early one morning how exciting for him
The children enjoyed looking for tracks in the yard
Although there was no wifi we managed just fine
Did have a problem with a/c while we were there but it was taken care of right away thanks to mrs Phyllis and there wasnt a coffee maker apon arriving but we had one dropped off right away
Enjoyed the hot tub as well
The main reason for staying here is first the great price for such a wonderful place
Second would be the yard and playground
My 4 and 6yr old spent many hrs playing and exploring
The rd to the lodge was a bit winding and steep but our Nissan quest handled it well
Thank you Phyllis for sharing your home with my family
We made great memories

We just returned from a week long stay and could not have asked for a better vacation spot for our family. The cabin is beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything you could need. The kids loved the outside play equipment, the games, and the hot tub. We loved the fireplace and the awesome master bath. I can not even describe how comfortable the beds and pillows were. I think I slept better than I do at home! The views from the cabin are spectacular and I loved the huge windows throughout the cabin. The drive up to the cabin was intimidating at first and I am glad we took Phyllis' advice and arrived during the day. Overall, the cabin exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to visit again!
