About Mark

My wife Melissa and I have always enjoyed the mountains, theres just something about the atmospehere of the Smoky Mountains and especially the the Pigeon Forge area. We live in Orlando Florida, we have 2 children Gregory and Brittany and 2 Grand Daughters Kayden and Rylee

Mark purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Mark chose Sevierville

We had TIPPY TOP built in 2007 in Shagbark, We chose Shagbark because of its Park like setting and the shear beauty of the lot that Tippy Top is built on It's views are spectacular and the cabin is very comfortable from the smallest to the largest groups.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had such a great time!! Just wanted to let you know what a great maintenance crew you have. We saw the lightening strike yesterday but didn't realize that it damaged the water pump. The maintenance man was so nice and helpful and had it fixed in less than an hour. The cabin is wonderful and we are really enjoying ourselves! Thank you again for letting us stay at the cabin. By the way we saw a bear not 15 feet away from the cabin on our first night! Grandkids said, "Awesome! ". 😊

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect weekend with family! Ample space and amenities. The deck is perfect. Hot tub and lower floor game room is a retreat of its own. Having so many King beds is Tippy Top!

Steep and daunting road to get to property, we left early

  • 4 of 5

Tippy Top is a beautiful cabin on a mountain. I just wish I had known about the hill getting to the property, as we’re not accustomed to encountering such single lane roads without guardrails. I was constantly worried about leaving and returning because of it, so we left early to enjoy the remainder of our time off. The house was mostly clean, I always bring my own cleaning supplies and clean tubs, handles and sinks prior to having my family utilize. It’s just my way. The maintenance issues were handed with friendliness, as the owner always answered our calls and seemed genuinely concerned. We got away to get away from my husband hospital calls and beepers only to have to alarm system beeping with a low battery notification every 1-2 hours through the first 30 hours of our stay. This was received with concern by the friendly owner, however, we just had to wait out the battery life as no alarm technician was available. The towels were clean, the kitchen efficient, the view was outstanding. If you like to take walks outside in the neighborhood, roads had very steep gradients. I would recommend this property if you are the kind of folks who are used to or expect this type of terrain and accessibility (a four wheel drive would be very handy). We did get a chance to use the hot tub the morning of our departure (again, we decided to vacate early)...the hot tub was fantastic!! Clean, large and simply relaxing. The gas fireplace pilot light kept going out, we also needed to wait for the maintenance gentleman to address that the day after our check in. Pluses: mainly clean (one set of sheets looked like someone had slept in them), kitchen functional and clean, decks nice (I just needed to get rid of cig butts outside), VERY nice owner (but not local), game room FUN, beds COMFORTABLE! It is only due to the cabin’s daunting accessibility that we would not return. This home is perfect for larger parties, as it was spacious!

We loved tippy top...Awesome view, plenty of room. Just pick up groceries and your ready!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved Tippy Top. Game room was a hit. Loved the Ms PAC Man. We didn’t get to use the hot tub, Mr Mario did come by but he could not fix it. Also had someone get bit assuming since it’s a pet friendly cabin it was fleas. Overall we loved it. Will definitely book again.

Great cabin but needs a little tlc

  • 3 of 5

Multiple light bulbs were out throughout the home. Dishwasher didn’t work. Although we were advised the day before we checked in about the dishwasher, we still had to hand wash everything the duration of our trip. The cabin is very nice but could use a little maintenance.
