About Constance (Connie) Hartke

We live in Northern Virginia. Paul owns a real estate company and I run our online real estate school and property manage our 2 cabins in the Smokies. We visit 3-4 times a year and our excellent maintenance & housekeeping crew keep the cabin in great shape. Connie always has one eye on our cabins in the Smokies!

Constance (Connie) Hartke purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Constance (Connie) Hartke chose Tennessee

Advantages of our location: *20 or so minutes from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Dollywood but away from all that traffic. *Incredible panoramic views on both sides (ridge sticks out from Cove Mountain – sunrise on one side & sunset on the other). Locals tells us one of if not the best views anywhere. *Minutes to get into the Park via Wears Valley entrance, so close to Cades Cove. *Can hike from cabins up into the Park. *Swimming pool shared by only 8 cabins. *Not a cookie cutter resort.

What makes this cabin unique

Very private without being totally secluded. Minutes from a 'secret' entrance into the National Park. Constantly changing scenery from our perch on a flat ridge that juts out from Cove Mountain and overlooks Wears Valley and the surrounding mountains. You can hike 1,000' up to the top of Cove Mountain, & then you are in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Turn right for trail to the old fire tower, left for 8 mile hike to Sugarlands Visitors Center, or straight ahead (and down) a mile to old growth forest. Continue on to Laurel Falls!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your place is beautiful. I have to admit the first time I drove up the mountain, in the rain, I was wishing I had worn Depends about half way up. Mom was terrified and kept telling me the cabin couldn't possibly be all the way on the top of the mountain. Once the fog lifted and the sun came out the view was incredible and worth the drive. The second time up was a piece of cake because we knew we were headed in the right direction. We had a great time and will definitely stay there again if we go back to Tennessee. The handicapped shower and commode made my Mom's life much easier. She couldn't have done if for two weeks without it.

{owner's comment - the steep drive at the end is less than a mile on a 2 lane paved road, but it feels longer the first time for sure!!}

Best Little Cabin in the Smokies

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is lovely, well-kept, well decorated and clean. You can see the road to the back entrance to one of the back doors into the Park. Owners are wonderful and hospitable and very helpful. Have seen a pair of eagles every day while staying.

Great cabin near smokie mountains

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect! It had all the needs you can think of! It is perfect for people that are looking for a handicap cabin. The view is breathtaking & it's worth it! We even stayed at the cabin all day and had so much fun with the pool table and games available. The owners are very kind and helpful. Will stay here again if I ever go back to Tennessee!!

Best rental ever!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a handicap/wheelchair accessible and pet friendly rental, LOOK NO FURTHER! I am a seasoned traveler and rent VRBO/Home Away/Flip Key-type rentals frequently and this one is the best I've rented so far. Finding something accessible for my wheelchair-bound spouse and able to bring our two well-behaved small dogs is a plus. Some rentals are advertised as handicap accessible, thinking a few grab bars in the bathroom suffices. This rental has a roll-in shower with seat attached to the wall and hand held shower head making it truly fully accessible for someone in a wheelchair. There is ramped access from the parking area to the deck, then no steps into the cabin. My husband had no problem maneuvering his electric wheelchair into and around the cabin. The views of the mountain are beyond description--to appreciate the spectacular scenes one really must experience it firsthand. The sunrise, sunset, and ever changing views are incredible. The property was immaculate, the furnishings unique as well as perfect, and instructions were clear and concise. The hot tub was immaculately clean, as was the entire property. Connie was very prompt to respond to all questions. The highlight of our stay was when neighbors spotted a small black bear trying to get into their garbage can! We enjoyed the property and views so much we spent nearly all of our time sitting on the porch of the cabin looking at the mountains, and very little time exploring the local area. The little bit we did explore (Cade's Cove, the local grocery store, and Little Tokyo restaurant in Pigeon Forge) was great----but every time we ventured out we found ourselves hurrying back to the cabin so we could sit on the porch and take in more of the mountain views.....I would highly recommend this property to any friend or relative who is looking for a perfect, quiet, relaxing vacation with spectacular mountain views of the Smoky Mountains!! Thanks Connie and Paul for sharing your beautiful cabin!! (**One last note: As a frequent renter I have never had the desire to return to the same property twice---until now---this cabin rental is on my "repeat" list.)

Wonderful cabin, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was absolutely beautiful, inside and out. We were snowed in for 3 days, but didn't mind a bit. If there's a better view in the area, we've never seen it! Will definitely be returning!

Romantic luxury cabin for celebrating honeymoons & anniversaries. Close but away from the traffic and noise of Pigeon Forge and just minutes into the National Park. 10 miles to Pigeon Forge. Only 5 mins. to the 'secret' 'Wears Valley entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. 25 mins. to Cades Cove or Gatlinburg.

Panoramic views of Wears Valley & Smoky Mountains w/ both sunset and sunrise views from a ridge near the top of Cove Mountain. Views from everywhere inside chalet-style log cabin -- even when cold outside you still see views!

Ridgetop cabin with panoramic views of Wears Valley and the Smoky Mountains to the south and west, toward Gatlinburg, Smokies, and Pigeon Forge to the north and east. Close enough to everything, yet secluded and peaceful. Private swimming pool is shared by only 8 cabins. Near the top of beautiful Cove Mountain.

Other Activities: 6 minutes to Great Smoky Mountain National Park
