Overview

About the property

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

NO FIRE DAMAGE IN THIS AREA!!!

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 Tennessee

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.

We had a great time in this secluded cabin. We were away from the hustle and bustle of the city but close to everything.

Cabin was very clean and fit my two younger sons and 20yr old baby brother perfectly.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was everything Andy said it would be and more. It was comfortable clean and cozy. The only downside to the cabin was the road up to it which I hear is all the roads to the cabins in the Smokies. This cabin had everything one needed to feel at home from the dishes, to linens, to a Jacuzzi tub for cold nights and an actual Jacuzzi on the patio. The view was great and we actually even caught glimpse of some wild life. We went to the strip in Gatlinburg one day to do some of the things there but the other days we stayed in pigeon forge which was literally minutes from the cabin. This was an adventure and we will definitely be reaching out to Andy again for future stays. Thank you so much for you hospitality and constant prompt communication. 2 thumbs up!

The cabin was perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying here! The cabin itself was so comfortable and cozy. It was so cold while we were here so we were thankful for the gas-burning fireplace! It was just minutes from the grocery and tons of restaurants and attractions. Great cabin, great location, great owner. He provided lots of feedback on area happenings and attractions. Very helpful!

Relaxing Mini-vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time in your log cabin up in the mountains. We loved being away from the crowds and the noise. And Andy, your detailed directions and parking tip was spot on - thank you so much. We ended up eating and shopping mostly in the Wear Valley area, and hope to visit your cabin again sometime soon. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Great guests. Looking forward to having them return. Since most of the shopping & eating was in Wears Valley this time, it leaves a lot more for them to do on their next trip.

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying at this cabin, and again, it was perfect! The location is the best, cozy and private, but just a short drive to the attractions. It's a great place to kick back and relax after a full day of fun! My husband and I, along with our two grandaughters, had plenty of room. The beds are comfy, as well as the living room furniture. All in all we had a wonderful vacation! Thanks Andy for the use of your cabin!

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.
