Tennessee Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8) 'NO PETS ALLOWED'

Bluespruce is a three bedroom and loft bed, three bath, three level log cabin (sleeps eight) with a beautiful mountain view. We are in a private area with only seven cabins. Our cabin has been remodeled inside and out.

Bluespruce is a privately-owned, vacation, log cabin rental located near Townsend (the quiet side of the Smokies)in the scenic Wears Valley area of the Tennessee mountains with a little-known entrance to the Smoky Mountains National Park. Quick, easy access to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Townsend, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, and Cades Cove, Tennessee.

The main level consists of a beautifully decorated living room with a comfortable sofa, a wooden recliner, DirecTV satellite with local Knoxville channels, and DVD. There is a comfortable dining area. The kitchen is fully furnished. Completing the main level is a bedroom with a king-size log bed and a full bath.

The main level also has 3 large rockers, a gas grill, and a private four-person hot-tub. There is also a very private front porch with a log swing and three rockers.

The upper level has a large bedroom with a king-size log bed, a loft with a Queen Log bed, a bath with a jacuzzi tub and a large picture window looking out at the beautiful Smoky Mountains. .

The lower level is extremely private with access only from the outside lower deck which has 2 large rockers. This lower level consists of a beautifully decorated game room complete with a pool table, TV/DVD. This level also has a bedroom with a queen-size log bed and a full bath.

Absolutely PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was PERFECT on so many levels. It was extremely clean and spacious. It's location couldn't have been better for our family that wanted a peaceful and quiet place to stay without having to drive a long distance for attractions. The owners were great to work with, even allowing us an earlier than agreed to check in. I will definitely stay here again!!

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. It was perfectly clean and comfortable for our group of eight. The view from the kitchen window and balcony was absolutely breathtaking. The location to attractions in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and the national park is very convenient. We would love to visit again in the fall to view the colors!

Beautiful cabin. Fantastic location. Easy to get to Gatlinburg if that is your preference. Ours is seeing the Smokies and avoiding the crowds. Perfect for this too.

We had other couples come during the week. All loved the cabin. Liked having their own space downstairs. Everyone enjoyed the back porch and the view.

We weren't brave enough to drive to the B&B at the top of the hill, but one couple walked up there. If we had known how beautiful it is, we would have looked into booking a meal there.

We cooked several meals and everything we needed was in the kitchen. We have had to make do for some things at other cabins. Really impressive.

Had a minor problem that the owner handled perfectly. This owner obviously loves the cabin and cares that his renters have a great visit.

Cozy, clean cabin with a great view

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed 5 nights. We had 5 adults and 3 kids. The beds were comfortable and everyone had a bed. There was even a pack and play for our 2 year old. I (grandma) was concerned about the steps coming into the front door and off the back to the lower level with the 2 year old but it was OK. The lower level off the back deck was great for the kid, they loved playing pool with their uncle. We cooked several meals at the cabin and grilled out. We found everything we needed to cook but the skillets were worn and could be up dated. The view is awesome. Grandma and grandpa loved having coffee and just enjoyed relaxing in the rockers. We had trouble with the TV. The grand kids were upset when it wouldn't work and their mom and dad was worried about entertaining them in the cabin. Jerry was very helpful and made contact right away to help resolve the situation. Thank you Jerry for the help so we didn't have to listen to the whine of grandkids. We had a great vacation in the smokey mountains our first vacation with extended family.

Beautiful property with a beautiful view. We had a blast on this trip, it was like our home away from home. We are telling all of our friends about the Blue Spruce Cabin. We will be back next year. All you need to do is show up and enjoy this beautiful property and views.

Beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a group just stay here for a few days over Memorial Day weekend enjoying the excellent motorcycle riding in the area. Our main focus was riding the Tail of the Dragon and this was an excellent choice for location to get to there and lots of other beautiful riding. The view from the main floor is amazing. I especially enjoyed the morning views with the "smoke" across the mountains. We loved hearing the sound of the all the motorcycles there for the holiday weekend on the road below. The road up to the cabin is pretty steep and narrow, but most of our group rode their bikes the whole trip so wasn't any issue for them. However, my husband and I did have a truck and trailer. Getting into the cabin parking with a truck and trailer can be a little tricky for someone inexperienced with trailers in tight spaces and curvy roads. Luckily, my husband is an OTR driver who has hauled many over-sized loads so it was pretty easy for him. It was a little odd that the bottom floor is only accessible from the outside, but that worked out well for us because we had one couple that had recently married and had a little issue with all the stairs. They were able to enjoy some privacy and not have to do a lot of climbing.

The only other slight issue we had was when we first arrived. The hot water had a very strong sulfur smell, but we were able to just drain the hot water tank and never had another issue the whole time we were there. The first few unlucky people showering that evening just had to hold their noses. lol

Everything was clean and in order when we arrived. We didn't cook, except for one night, but had plenty of dishes and utensils when we did. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay here and I would definitely recommend the cabin and this location to anyone traveling that way that wants a place a little off the beaten path. I hope we get to come back soon!
