BEAUTIFUL HAND-HEWED LOG CABIN ON THE EDGE OF THE SMOKY MOUNTAINS

Cosby Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms plus a large loft, 2 bathroom very close to the National Park

THREE LITTLE BIRDS opened in October, 2012, so everything in the home is brand new! Our tranquil setting and many amenities will make this a one-of-a-kind retreat for couples, families, and hikers. This is a beautiful time to visit the Smokies. Visit our website to see what visitors are saying in our cabin Guest Book!!

Three Little Birds has 2 bedrooms + a large loft with a twin trundle bed, 2 bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, a 6-person hot tub, and 2 beautiful covered porches with plenty of rockers to relax. This is a newer and spacious handcrafted home nestled in a tranquil wooded setting just minutes away from the Cosby entrance of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and an easy 25 minute drive to Gatlinburg. We are also 15 minutes away from whitewater rafting and ziplining.

Spend your days doing nothing or filling them with adventure.

Within the home, you will find luxury in a cabin setting. A true escape from everyday life yet the comforts of home. Most everything in the home was built or bought locally so guests will enjoy local craftsmanship and art.

The home has an open floor plan with plenty of entertainment space. The living room is equipped with a 55' HDTV, surround system (which also plays on the back patio and hot tub), and woodburning fireplace. Each bedroom also has a large flat screen TV.

The outside of the home has plenty of places to relax and play. Read a book on one of the porches, soak in the hot tub, or enjoy a game of horseshoes in the yard. There is also an outdoor firepit to take the chill out of the evenings or cook up a smore.

If you can't leave work behind or just need a change to your remote setting, Three Little Birds has a unique set up. The home has high-speed internet, boosters to provide WIFI access anywhere - outside or inside, and a small private office with 2 desks just off the loft area upstairs.

For families, the cabin is equipped with the goals of never hearing the words 'I'm bored' or 'why is this car packed to the roof'. The cabin has a bouncy seat, brand-new Pack and Play with sheets, Kelty baby carrier perfect for day hikes, and plenty of plasticware in the kitchen. Within the house, you'll find many board games, a game table, and an Xbox 360 with Kinect to keep everyone entertained.

Hikers will envy the 2-car attached garage. With charging stations for your walkie talkies to a place for your pole and backpacks, you'll find it easy to enjoy the National Park and return to the comforts of home. Also provided are river tubes, inflatable boats, bicycles, and plenty of yard toys.

Don't worry about a thing at Three Little Birds Cabin!

We love the Smoky Mountains and have always dreamed of owning a home here. Our dream came true in June, 2012, and we're looking forward to sharing our knowledge of the park and our home with our guests.

For the past 20 years, we have escaped our hectic lives in Chicago to hike and backpack the beautiful trails in the Smokies. We were engaged on the top of Mt. LeConte, and both of young children had their first (of many) backpacking adventures here in the Park. We've hiked most of the trails, including much of the famous Appalacian Trail. We still live in Chicago but once the kids are off to college, our next dream will be call Tennessee our home.

Patty purchased this cabin in 2012

We fell in love with this home from the moment that we saw it. We wanted to find a place where we could get away from it all yet be connected to work through high-speed internet (not a easy find in the mountains). We wanted to be as close to the National Park as possible -- it's practically in our backyard. We also needed a place to unwind and leave the hectic world behind. Most importantly, we wanted to build beautiful memories with our family, and share our experience with others. We found everything on our wish list at Three Little Birds.

The cabin is beautifully handcrafted. It was build to last forever in this peaceful setting. The rooms are spacious with high-end finishes which was far more appealing to us than the average home built specifically for rentals. Three Little Birds was build to be 'a home'. We absolutely love our home, and hope that you will treasure it as we go.

FABULOUS CABIN

This was the nicest cabin we have ever rented in the Smokies! It was fully equipped, clean & fully stocked. The hot tub was used every morning & evening, along with the front porch swing. Could not have been in a better location for hiking, shopping, food, or just sight seeing. We will be back!

Our visit to our former home was wonderful. Spending time with our former neighbors and enjoying all the items you have in the cabin to make our stay so easy and convenient. There is something for everyone to do and keep busy in case of bad weather, and, of course, in good weather what more could you ask for than the Smoky Mountains. We hope to return again. Thank you for taking such good care of the cabin.

Owner's Response: We were so happy to have you stay. What a special treat for us to have previous owners come back to their home. We hope that you will visit again (and maybe next time we will meet in person).

Wonderful place to stay in the Smokies

This is a really great cabin in the quiet, natural area of the Smokies. Very private and extremely well equipped. The owners have thought of absolutely everything for a wide variety of visitors. Our stay was made easier by the wealth of information the owners have collected and made available, on everything from restaurants to things to do.

Immaculate and very well kept, comfortable beds. Towel anyone? This cabin has tons of fluffy ones.

We didn't use half of what the owners have provided. As grandparents we could see that they have clearly thought of young families and provided everything for a range of child ages from a small baby to older active teens.

The photos were accurate and the owner went out of her way to provide prompt, specific information on things that would be of interest to us. Local restaurants were really great. We can also recommend The Front Porch and Carvers. They provided us our first experience with southern cooking. There is nothing like chicken and dumplings on a cold, wet night!

We had no concerns with the property because it was so well maintained. Originally we had planned to leave a day early to tour the Blue Ridge Parkway but we were having such a good time we stayed right to the end and left only reluctantly.

We think we are spoiled for other places. When we visit Tennessee we will be staying here again. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful comments about the cabin. Our goal is for everyone to love it as much as we do. We hope that you will visit again in the future!

I feel fortunate to have found this gem of a cabin for our trip to the Smokies. I spent hours on VRBO researching options, areas, amenities, etc, and 3 Little Birds has it all! It was out of the way, yet easy to find. The cabin was absolutely spotless when we arrived. We spent a lot of time on the screened in back porch -- very quiet, with view to the woods -- and enjoyed the hot tub each night.

Even before the trip, Patty made several contacts with me to make sure we had everything we needed. She was like a virtual tour guide, answering all my questions about the area. In the cabin, we found books and binders with menus, activities, and area attractions. Bikes and walking sticks are available and we made use of the latter. Climbworks is a zipline nearby that I highly recommend.

We cooked several meals in, and the kitchen is fully equipped. We found everything we needed to make full dinners. The apple orchard just up the road also has a full range of fresh produce, so we loaded up on apples and some vegetables there. This cabin is great for couples as well as families with kids. We had everything we needed and much more. Three little birds lived up to all our expectations.
