Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, Sleeps up to 8

PLEASE NOTE: I keep my calendar and rent rates updated at all times!

Welcome to The Rusty Nail! We have a pet-free, 2 bedroom, 2 bath log cabin located in the gated community of Bear Creek Crossing. Named after our wonderful grandmother, 'Rusty,' the purpose of The Rusty Nail is to help you get away from it all while maintaining all of the comforts of home.

We have 3 TV's that have over 150 channels via DirectTV so that you can have your choice of sports, movies, or whatever you find relaxing. You will also enjoy a private outdoor hot tub with a fantastic mountain view, 8 rocking chairs, gas grill, free Wifi, foosball table, pool table and a stereo with CD player.

The community has an indoor/outdoor pool that is fun for everyone and kid-friendly. There is also a clubhouse that can be rented for events. The cabin is decorated with a patriotic theme and for all of you with children, we have provided a crib, high chair and booster seat. We hope that you feel right at home.

The Rusty Nail is located just 3 miles from all the shopping, restaurants and activities that you could ever want. And, Dollywood is only a 10-minute drive away! TRN is privately owned and managed. There is a local property manager on call 24 hours a day in case you need anything. Our goal is to help you feel comfortable and worry-free. Welcome to The Rusty Nail! We are glad that you are here!

**Please note that we offer payment via eCheck (free) and credit card ($15 fee).

'We had a WONDERFUL time at your cabin. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Everything was perfect. For the past 3 years, we've stayed in Brother's Cove. But, we all agree that we want to go back to The Rusty Nail from now on. We go to Gatlinburg every Spring for my husband's birthday. Hopefully, it will be available next year when we go. The kids loved the game room. Honestly, I never knew that foosball was so fun! Again, thank you. I'll be in touch next Spring.' Kim Long

'We had a great time at the cabin. My boys loved it! Thank you so much. My kids said when we go back that it 'better be in that cabin'! They are 4 and 8... big talkers! Thanks again.' Felina Freiburger

'Great cabin. We loved the place, especially the loft area. The cabin was spotless and had everything we could have possibly needed. The kids loved the pool, too.'

Anthony 'Bud' Jackson

'We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at The Rusty Nail. It was an awesome experience . Staying in a log cabin really makes vacationing in the mountains of Tennessee a great experience. The girls loved sleeping in the loft and they played pool frequently and listened to the stereo. My husband and his father also enjoyed the pool table. We enjoyed the location. It really was not far from the parkway. We will definitely love to stay at the Rusty Nail again in the future.' Amy Lyle

'I can't begin to tell you folks what a beautiful and wonderful vacation we all had. The cabin was absolutely beautiful, breath taking, awesome, and most of all it felt like a home, not a hotel. Our trips around towns, into the mountains and the things we did with the kids, was priceless... We went horseback riding, saw so much snow up the Great Smokey Mountains, took the kids to the petting zoo and so much more. This trip they we never forget, neither will we. Lucky was very attentive and right there when we needed him, thank you Lucky !!! As a person that comes into so much contact with the public, friends, family and etc., trust me, my positive word of mouth will get out there. May God bless you all, and hope to see you again this year. Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cabin. Everything was perfect, especially the cold weather.' Norma

About Brooke Gibson

Hi! My name is Brooke and I have owned The Rusty Nail since 2007. I named the cabin after my awesome grandmother, Rusty, and try to take her there as often as I can. She's 97 now and still going strong!

I typically go to The Rusty Nail with my family, who lives in Kentucky, because it's right, smack in the middle! My two young nephews tend to spend their time either racing around the deck, climbing the hill across the street, or playing each other at foosball! Me...I prefer a glass of red wine in the hot tub!

I would love to have you stay and have a wonderfully relaxing vacation!

Brooke Gibson purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Brooke Gibson chose Tennessee

I chose to buy The Rusty Nail because not only is it in a gated (safe!) community with a community pool, but it's about as close to the Tanger Outlet Mall as you can get (5 minutes). I'm no stranger to the outlet mall! Banana Republic will never go out of business as long as I own the cabin! (My poor credit cards...)

What makes this cabin unique

I personally know the owner of the cabin two doors down from mine. His is also a 2-bedroom, so if you ever have a big group, just let me know and we'll get you set up next door to each other!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and enjoyed every minute at “The Rusty Nail!” I am very thankful to you for the opportunity to stay at your beautiful cabin…I hope we can go back again soon. Also, thank you for your trust and allowing us to bring our puppy…aka…”baby” along to enjoy the trip with us. She was very well behaved and we enjoyed having her with us.



Thank you again for sharing your beautiful cabin “The Rusty Nail” with us!

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is so much nicer than the pics and very spacious. Loved the view from the back porch and you can get a great view from the loft as well. We'll definitely stay here again.

best vacation weve had in a while

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was amazing we truly enjoyed it. It was comfortable and perfect for our family. We would definitely visit again. We stayed for Christmas and my grandkids were so excited to see the Christmas tree up in the living room when we arrived. It was truly amazing to see their faces. We fell in love with the cabin.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our rental was perfect for our needs. Plenty of room and amenities. Both beds were very comfortable and the sofa bed upstairs was easy to use. Bear Creek crossing is a great location. You can easily get to town but the cabin has a sense of serenity that is wonderful. The view is perfect. My only complaint was the grill needs some repairing and was hard to use. We would stay here again.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay st the Rusty Nail. Had a little problem with the TV in the living area. The two controls were a little confusing and we never figured out the DVD system. Other than that the accommodations were great. Very well supplied kitchen. Beds were very comfortable. Having a baby crib provided was a plus. We would consider staying there again.

Beautiful cabin with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at The Rusty Nail. Loved that both bedroom suites are on the main floor. This is definely a plus for older couples. Everything was in excellent shape and we were provided with plenty of towels and toilet tissue. Kitchen is well stocked which made cooking easy. There were no cons to renting this cabin. We highly recommend The Rusty Nail and hope to stay there again.

Great!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was beautiful, and looked exactly as the pictures portrayed. The check in and out process was easy. The reason I am not giving a 5 star is, most of the breath taking view is covered by trees, our bedroom floor was sticky in areas, and the checklist that needed to be done before leaving was lengthy. I came to not do laundry and dishes. We had to strip the bed, start a load of towels, ensure the dishes were done, and trash taken out. I'm not sure why I paid a cleaning fee if I did the majority of it. It was beautiful and spacious. I would definitely recommend to others!
