About Mark

My wife 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 Central Florida, we have 2 children

Mark purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Mark chose Tennessee

Shagbark is a very unique area with a setting that mirrors the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. It is a 24 hour guard gated community for safety and assistance

What makes this cabin unique

The Cabin is unique in that it is not a typical cabin with only bear and woodsy decor setting, it also has it's own unique decor with a rock music setting in the game room level and main living area level area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

 

Loved this cabin! Perfectly set-up for a family vacation. We had 9 people (4 adults, 3 teens and 2 younger kids) and still felt like we had plenty of room. The 3 master suites were perfect! Owner was very helpful and quickly replied to any questions or needs before and during our stay. Pool is easily within driving distance which was great for our family. We all loved the basement and played many games of pool. We can't wait to return. If you are considering this cabin we highly recommend it!

What an awesome VACATION!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great place to stay, look no further.

This was our second visit to the area and we have found the cabin we will use for all of our visits to come!!!

This cabin is perfection!!! It was hard to find any reason to leave and go out exploring because there was just so much to do in the cabin.[pool table, video games, lg smart T.V., hot tub]. We literally could have spent all day out on the deck just enjoying the view!!

The kitchen was well stocked with all that we needed to prepare and serve meals. Plenty of seating around the tables and plenty of plates, bowls and cups! [there is even a crock pot and a blender!]

The bedrooms were so spacious, my children wanted to move in and never leave! The beds are comfy, with plenty of blankets here and there to keep you warm no matter what you are doing.

We enjoyed some time hiking in the National Park, and enjoyed a horse back ride [Davy Crockett Riding Stables] this year as well. * all right outside of Townsend, so less than 30 minutes from the cabin!*

Mark was so helpful and available to answer our many questions!

We had breakfast at Elvira's [it has become our favorite breakfast stop]. And, when you are in the middle of making dinner and realize you forgot an ingredient, just head down the hill to the little store on the main road.

Finally, if you enjoy a glass of wine while sitting in the hot tub or watching the sunset you must visit Cades Cove Cellars.[located in Townsend]. Their wine is amazing and we look forward to it all year!

We promise you will not be disappointed.

Against the Wind! Excellent Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I must say our romantic retreat was satisfied to the fullest staying at Against the Wind. The cabin was roomy and comfortable with great amenities to include a soothing jacuzzi. Very relaxing! Not very far from Pigeon Forge and other main attractions but very cozy and tucked away providing great privacy.

I would highly recommend this cabin to any one looking for romance and seclusion. And the rental was an ease to book with the owner who provided me and husband with A1 customer service. Love it!

Handicap assessible - Mainly Cons vs. Pros

  • 2 of 5

We rented this cabin looking for handicap assessible for a family vacation. Here are pros and cons of the cabin:

Pros - main level and the lower level game room was wheelchair assessible; game room was large and options were good; porches were wide and had ample outside seating; maintenance was responsive in replacing the empty grill tank; layout is open and big enough to accomodate 8 even though it says it sleeps 10

Cons - Main level bathroom had the handicap height toilet, but the space was so tight, it was very difficult to transfer to toilet and back; NO HANDICAP SHOWER - ROLL IN OR GRAB BARS; in fact - no shower on main level at all; Lower level bathroom was big enough for wheel chair, but standard toilet height and standard tub shower with no grab bars; At least half of the light bulbs were burned out in the cabin; called maintenance twice and the owner once, with no response; furniture is worn out; cabin states it sleeps 10 - but both fold out couches were unsuitable for teenagers; cabin is also in dire need of a good cleaning; called maintenance twice about the outside trash bins overflowing (two days in a row - ended up picking up trash the birds scattered about). Will not stay here again

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Against the Wind was the perfect cabin for our family vacation! The layout was wonderful- 3 bedrooms, each on a separate floor. The balcony was great for letting the children run around without worrying about them. The game room was a hit with the kids- of all ages! We really had a wonderful time- close to all the attractions in the area.

Best cabin layout, however

  • 2 of 5

I really hate to give this place two stars. It was the best cabin layout of any we have stayed in, with a room and full bath upstairs, a room and full bath on main level, And a room with full bath on basement level. GREAT game room and jacuzzi!!! GRAEAT LOCATION, close to everything. We had some trouble getting in, had to wait almost 2 hours after arrival to get access to the cabin, finally spoke with the owner who seemed very nice and this seemed like a one off problem (won't hold that against them). The main reason for the two stars- two of the most important things people look forward to when staying in these cabins, the view and REST. The view- while I imagine that it is great in the winter months, right now it's not much, a lot of trees blocking the view. I am not sure how much property the owner has, that would allow them to work on it (clear a little), but, it's hard to look at the phenomenal views from the cabins across the road from this one and then sit on its deck looking at the back of trees. REST- not at all the whole trip. The beds in this cabin are atrossis. It's not the top mattress as much as the box spring. Every time you roll over or move it makes a very loud "paper crunching" sound. Every time your bed partner moves or gets up, it WILL wake you up. They have got to be r placed. These two problems get fixed, I would book this cabin again and give it a happy 5 stars , it needs some work and deserves 5 stars with the problems fixed.
