Tennessee Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

***This cabin is rented by the owner directly. When you email or call about the cabin, you will be speaking directly with the owner- not a management company. We know more about our cabin than any management company ever could. We visit regularly and enjoy sharing our vacation home with you. We are responsive owners who answer inquiries/emails quickly and attend to our guests' questions and concerns to help make their vacation the best!***

Our photos are up-to-date. They were taken in June 2013 with new ones of the exterior taken in early August 2014. The sofa and club chair were replaced December 2015, so the photos don't show the new furniture (yet!). We love the updates, and know you will too!

We have been renting by owner since December 2006. During that time, we have met so many wonderful people who have stayed at our cabins. We try to add a personal touch and are attentive and responsive to guests. We strive for guest satisfaction and want our guests to come back again and again. We are now seeing our guests return time and time again to stay at 'Away From It All'.

Have you searched through tons of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg cabin rentals by owner? Stop looking. You've found the best cabin! We rent 2 cabins by owner in the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge area and work very hard to make sure your stay is the best it can be. We have a local maintenance and cleaning company who help us keep the cabin in tip-top shape.

Convenient to all area attractions, Away From It All, is the perfect spot to spend your Smoky Mountain vacation. The cabin is private and easy to get to- paved roads all the way. It is less than 7 miles to Dollywood's entrance. The cabin has easy access for older adults or small children- just four steps to enter with the top step only being about 2-3 feet off the ground.

The large parking area will even accommodate a motorcycle trailer. If you are looking for convenience, this cabin is for you. The Arts and Crafts community is within 15 minutes. Dollywood, Dolly's Splash Country, Dixie Stampede, The Old Mill, Gatlinburg, and the Smoky Mountain Park are also within 15-20 minutes. You actually pass the trolley entrance to Dollywood when driving to the cabin. The new LeConte Center is 7.2 miles away.

Inside, it is cozy and comfortable for couples or a family. The black bear theme makes you feel right at home in the mountains. Several guests have said their children wanted to spend the whole day at the cabin instead of visiting area attractions! If you need a restful retreat after a full day of vacationing, this is the cabin for you.

The all wooden interior shows wonderful craftsmanship. The downstairs master bedroom boasts a king-sized log bed, jacuzzi tub, and full private bathroom while the upstairs loft area has a queen-sized log bed and another full bathroom in addition to the pool table.

The loft area is perfect for children or another couple since it's equipped with another TV and another full bath. Teenagers especially love having this space of their own for entertainment. We added an extra TV set up with a PlayStation 2 and about 20 games in the summer of 2010. Upstairs, a catwalk leads you from the loft area to the upper deck where the hot tub is located. You can enjoy the moonlight in complete privacy- even in your "birthday suit"!

Two of the decks have rocking chairs for resting and reading. Also there is a table and chairs for meals outside enjoying the quietness of the area. An outdoor gas fireplace was added in November 2010. The cabin is built on a one-acre lot and is in an area where you can sit on one of the three decks and enjoy the sounds of nature.

Outside, there is a small yard area and a large covered b-b-q grill which is large enough for family grilling. With every amenity you could possibly need, it's the perfect spot to get 'Away From It All'!

This cabin is non-smoking and is NOT PET FRIENDLY- we cater to guests who do not want to stay in a pet friendly cabin. We do not allow any pets- no exceptions.

About Lisa Faust

Hi! We're the Faust's- a family of 4. My husband and I, along with our two sons, live in a small town north of Birmingham, Alabama. I just retired after 26 years of teaching elementary school and started a new job with the Alabama Education Association and my husband, Neil is a farmer. Our oldest son is in college and our youngest son just received his diesel mechanic certification from a technical college and is working at my dad's family business.

Lisa Faust purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Lisa Faust chose Tennessee

After owning vacation rentals on the Gulf Coast of Alabama since 2000, we experienced Hurricane Ivan in September 2004. Our condo was out of commission for about 7 months, so we decided to sell and buy in an area where we didn't have to worry about hurricanes. We live about 6 hours from the beach and about 4.5 hours from the mountains, so we decided to find a cabin in the Smoky Mountains. There are so many family activities in this area, we knew we would enjoy having a vacation home here.

What makes this cabin unique

Away From It All is in a quiet and serene area. You feel like you are away from all the hustle and bustle of the Pigeon Forge area, but it's close enough to drive to any attraction or even back into town to eat dinner or pick up groceries- it's the best of both worlds. We stay at the cabin frequently and have tried to make it a home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We used the cabin to get away from it all. We had a wonderful time. This weekend Steve and I celebrated our one year anniversary. Thank you for our wonderful trip!

Very nice cabin.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, my families stay was good. The cabin is kept up very nicely and secluded from the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge. The necessary amenities were there and kept up nicely along with a few extras (hot tub, pool table). The only thing that kept me from giving the cabin 5 stars is the master bedroom bed. The mattress is very noisy so every time my wife or myself would move in the night it would wake us up. As far as recommending this cabin to family and friends, I sure would.

The hen turkey was an unexpected bonus!

  • 5 of 5

Anne and I had a wonderful time this past weekend. Though the cabin sits on the road, traffic was never a problem; in fact, we were amazed at the privacy afforded. We walked the loop several times over our stay and may have met a car once. Much nicer than putting up with the Derby crowds back home. Clean, neat and tidy, I expect we will return here. Though not of interest to us, Dollywood is close, and downtown Pigeon Forge is not far for those forgotten items one just has to have. Perhaps my son and his family will someday be fortunate enough visit. I will certainly suggest it.

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Away from it All was fantastic. The cabin is a truly loved home. It felt like a family friend had thought of everything we needed to welcome us home. We look forward to returning again and will carry wonderful memories until the next time.

Relaxing, beautiful home with everything you want or need.

  • 5 of 5

This home is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist area yet then close enough for easy access. Lisa has made sure to supply everything you need to assure a pleasant, effortless stay. The peace and quiet sitting out on the deck was amazing. The hot tub, though a bit small for four, was thoroughly enjoyed by my sister in-law and I. The beds were comfortable. The furnishings were so tastefully done and the house was spotlessly clean. If you are looking for a beautiful home in a peaceful wooded setting you won't be dissatisfied with this lovely cabin.
