About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)


This cabin has been used for numerous honeymoons and anniversaries. In addition, there have been at least 3 weddings performed in the cabin. On the other hand, it has also been used as a retreat when families have lost loved ones or to escape from an otherwise stressful life.

Relax in the rocking chairs on the front porch or the ones on the back porch. In cooler weather, relax in front of the fireplace & enjoy the beautiful mountains through the floor to ceiling glass wall in the main living area. You can also relax in the whirlpool tub in the master bedroom or the hot tub on the back porch (the main picture was taken from the hot tub).

The cabin is on 2 1/2 acres of land and very private. From the living room sleeper sofa or recliner or from the back porch rockers or hot tub, you see no other cabins/houses, just the woods, wildlife, and Blush Mountain in the distance. Fall foliage is spectacular!

The master bedroom has a king size log bed, flat screen TV, DVD player, and whirlpool tub. Adjacent to the bedroom is a full bathroom with shower/tub combination.

There is 1 step up to the front porch & another step up to the main part of the cabin which has the dine-in kitchen, master bedroom .

There is a locally made birch tree lamp in the main living area. Other lamp shades feature artwork of the Hautman Brothers who are wildlife artists with works in Smithsonian and the White House.

There is 1 step down from the main floor to the back porch which has the charcoal bar-b-que grill, rockers, & hot tub.

The 2nd bedroom & full bathroom (shower/tub combination) are located in the loft. It features a Hautman Brothers bedspread and another Hautman Brothers lamp shade. There is a flat screen TV, XBox 360 with video games & board games.

The living room is equiped with a 32' flatscreen TV with DVD. The master bedroom has another flat screen TV with DVD player. DVD movies and books are provided for your enjoyment and relaxation.

All the attractions along the Parkway in Pigeon Forge are only about 5 - 10 minutes away, while Dollywood and the national park are only about 10-15 minutes away. Snow skiing, Ripley's aquarium and museums are about 20-30 minutes away in Gatlinburg.

Why Andy Carver chose Sevierville

The property has plenty of privacy located on 2 1/2 acres of land, but it's only about 4 miles (10 minutes) to the parkway in Pigeon Forge where all the shows, restaurants, etc. are located. It's also only about 30 minutes to the national park, tubing, zip lines, horseback riding, snow skiing, etc.

What makes this cabin unique

The privacy, scenery, & location make this an ideal location for a family, but it's also an ideal location for a romantic getaway. It has been used frequently for anniversaries, & honeymoons. In addition, AT LEAST 3 WEDDINGS HAVE BEEN PERFORMED IN THIS CABIN.

Very cute cabin in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just minutes from town, but very secluded! We brought our own 3 children and our 2 nephews, so 7 of us in total, but our 1 year old slept in a pack and play in our room. There was enough room for all of us to sleep comfortably, and the kids loved the location. The back porch was a nice place to sit outside and listen to nature, grill, or enjoy the hot tub. There are cute general stores and restaurants in either direction. I loved being minutes from all the attractions, but in your own little slice of secluded heaven if you wanted to get away from the crowds.

Convenient, Quiet, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at this cabin and was very pleased with it. It was comfortable and very well appointed, including a hot tub, gas log fireplace, and fully stocked kitchen. There were also games available. Everything was as described and in good working order. The location is woodsy and quiet, but a very short drive from Pigeon Forge and fairly short drive from other area attractions. The owner (Andy) was very helpful and responsive, and it was clear that he cares about the property and the experience of his guests. As has been noted in other reviews, the road up to the cabin is a little sporty, but that isn't too unusual for hilltop properties. I would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Great guest. Look forward to hearing from him again. Hopefully he'll be able to bring more family & friends to share his experience in the future, but the cabin is also a nice retreat to "recharge batteries" & escape from a busy schedule.

Loved the cabin! Only complaints are the road to the cabin and the trees blocking the view of the mo

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was nice and peaceful. The kids loved the hot tub and the pool table!! The road to the cabin was very scary and the view of the mountains was obstructed by the trees!! Overall we enjoyed our stay

Owner's Response: I wasn't aware that the trees blocked the view. I will have them removed. I can't do much about the road. It is paved all the way to the cabin, but it's a typical mountain road. If you want to go to the mountains for a mountain view, you have to travel mountain roads. As the saying goes, if you want to go to the mountains, you have to go there, the mountains don't come to you.

Day Dreamer

  • 3 of 5

Very nice cabin, secluded. Drive up the mountain hill is a tuff one, but what do you expect. We enjoyed our time there.

Owner's Response: REALLY CONFUSED!!! - This guest stayed for 5 days & I never received a complaint. The review is a good one, i.e. "Nice cabin, secluded.... We enjoyed our time there." But only a 3 star rating. The only negative comment is about the mountain road which is paved all the way to the cabin & if you want a mountain view, you have to drive up a mountain road which I have no control over. So, not sure why this is only a 3 star rating.

Great Place to stay! Nice and quiet. Private so you don't have to worry about neighbors watching you

Had a great time while staying at this cabin. On our second night we pulled in the driveway there were 4 bears at the edge of the driveway.

Relax in a tranquil mountain setting located just minutes away from great family orientated entertainment and good food in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg in one direction and the spectacular mountain scenery of Wear Valley and Cades Cove in the other direction.

The cabin is on 2.5 acres of land and no other cabins in sight when foliage is on the trees. In the winter, there is 1 cabin that can barely be seen in the distance.

There are other cabins on the mountain, but not in the immediate vicinity. Since there isn't much traffic, you can walk down the main road. Taking a right from the cabin is a fairly easy walk. About 1/4 mile down the road is a small (5-10 acre) meadow with a small pond and a couple of cabins around it. Walking past the meadow, you can walk 1/2 mile - 1 mile along the road through the woods without seeing another cabin. A small stream crosses the road there & there a couple of cabins with permanent residents.

Turning left from the cabin and it's about 1/4 mile to the bottom of the mountain where there is a nice stream with several small waterfalls. I've included pictures of some of waterfalls.

Golf: Great golfing is available within a 15 minute drive in Pigeon Forge.

Ski: Snow skiing is available about 30 minutes away in Gatlinburg.

The national park is about 30 minutes away.
