About Janet Ingram-Giffee
I moved to East Tennessee from Wisconsin Dells, Wisc. in 2008. I never get tired of the ever changing view of the mountains and the four mild seasons the area has to offer. I grew up working with tourists and loved the idea of living on vacation- which is what life feels like everyday when you live on the border of such a beautiful national park! I am currently a Realtor in the Great Smoky Mountains, so I get to enjoy the drive and views everyday. According to the National Park Service, the bear population in the park is over 1600 bears and growing, along with deer, elk, turkey, groundhogs, wolves and many other small forest animals making the park their home. The fall leaf color displays start in mid-September in the elevations higher than 4000 feet (Mt. LeConte, Mt. Guyot, Clingmans Dome, Newfound Gap and along the Appalachian Trail) in the Park and surrounding Smokies, reaching their peak from October 1-15. In the lower elevations of about 1000 feet (Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg) peak color is usually seen October 15- November 7. Some suggested drives to enjoy the colors are Little River and Laurel Creek Roads between Sugarlands Visitors Center and Cades Cove. Keep in mind that traffic on Newfound Gap Road and Cades Cove Loop Roads are very heavy during leaf season, especially late in the day. So get up early and enjoy—then go for pancakes! or pack a picnic lunch. The Cades Cove motor loop is closed to motor vehicles until 10:00a.m. every Saturday and Wednesday mornings from May until late September. This allows bicyclists and pedestrians to enjoy the roads of Cades Cove without worrying about vehicle traffic.
Janet Ingram-Giffee purchased this Cabin in 2017
Why Janet Ingram-Giffee chose Little Creek Falls
We selected this cabin for the beautiful mountain views. Whenever it rains you get to experience the very reason why the Smoky Mountains got it's name. The mist that rises off the mountains is almost a weekly occurrence that you are able to enjoy from either of the decks. Secondly, Jack has been a biker most of his life and this location is perfect for either riding your bike to the cabin or plenty of level parking if you trailer your bike. With 2 Master Suites, friends can easily share a cabin.
What makes this Cabin unique
Situated on the quiet side of the tourism in Sevier county, you can enjoy the beautiful nature surrounding you without sitting in the tourist traffic. If you want to go to Gatlinburg for the day, take the breathtaking drive through the National Park that winds along a portion of the river, or stop at one of the many hiking trails along the way. https://smokymountains.com/park/things-to-do/sugarlands-visitor-center/ Tail of the Dragon is also work seeing if you are a Biker and the cabin offers plenty of flat parking if you decide to trailer your bike to the area. https://tailofthedragon.com/details/

This cabin is just amazing! Convenient to everything! Cabin is the most stocked cabin I have ever rented. I would rent this cabin again that's for sure! Even had to cut a day off our stay and Janet was nice enough to refund me. Loved the swing, rockers and the jacuzzi.
