Why stay out in the boondocks? Ren's Nest is literally 5 minutes from supermarkets, restaurants and attractions.

This luxurious log home will easily accommodate 6 couples, with additional sleeping space on two sleeper sofas. The cozy furnishings in the living room invite you to sit back, relax, and admire how the light from the crackling fireplace bounces around the room. The open dining area and fully equipped kitchen, allow you to prepare and enjoy scrumptious meals, without leaving the company of your family. You can challenge someone to a fun game of billiards downstairs in the game room, or head out to the large, screened-in porch nestled in the tree-tops and breathe in some fresh mountain air while relaxing in the porch swing or one of many rocking chairs. An eight-person private hot tub is located on the lower deck just outside the game room. Two refrigerators accommodate a large group’s needs for food storage and ice. Bring your lap-top. This cabin is equipped with WIRELESS INTERNET Access and 7 LCD TVs and a home theatre with Blue-Ray DVD!! The master bedroom provides a King-Size bed, a 32" LCD TV and private bedside Jacuzzi for those intimate evenings indoors. Located just around the bend from the Eagles Ridge swimming pool and clubhouse, and just minutes from downtown, you are sure to appreciate the convenience of this Smoky Mountain Getaway

About Steve and Renee Morrell

Steve and Renee Morrell designed and assisted the builder in creating "Ren's Nest", named after RENee. Steve enjoys woodworking and created some of the lamps and other furnishings to emphasize a bird house theme to the log-cabin. Renee displayed some of her artistic ability by creating the hand-stenciled curtains in the cabin. Steve is retired from the Department of Energy, but continues to work as a consultant. Renee works in a real estate office in Knoxville, TN

Steve and Renee Morrell purchased this cabin in 1997

Why Steve and Renee Morrell chose Tennessee

Being native East Tennesseans, we have a love for the beauty of the Smoky Mountains. When we decided to create "Ren's Nest", we viewed it as an opportunity for a good investment, a chance to host our own family reunions and getaway's, and be able to share the property with others.

What makes this cabin unique

We particularly enjoy relaxing on the screened-in porch, nestled high in the tree tops. Although Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg offer many attractions, restaurants, and outdoor activities, we particularly enjoy being nestled in to "Ren's Nest", enjoying our family and friends, through conversation and playing games.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time visiting with our friends and enjoying all the many amenities. The house is very well-decorated and comfortable and I'm sure we will return many times.

Awesome cabin

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 families that stayed in this cabin and it was spacious enough for all of us. There were enough bedrooms and bathrooms that basically each family had a level to themselves. A few nights we BBQ'd and had guests over and there was still plenty of space. We used the hot tub nightly so needed it filled which maintenance took care of ASAP. The pool table entertained the boys for hours! Having 2 refrigerators was a plus since there were many of staying there. Cabin was close enough to the parkway that is was easy getting to the parkway yet far enough away from it that you felt secluded from the congestion and noise the parkway often brings. Cabin was clean and contained all items contract said it would have. Since we had so many of us we did need to purchase ourselves extra soap, paper towels, bathroom paper and dishwasher tabs. There were a few minor things we needed maintenance for ( front door stuck, fan on porch didn't work, picking up trash and filling hot tub) and they were courteous and quick to respond. Communication with the owners was easy and they were quick to reply. We used the community pool several times and no issues there. It was close to the cabin but did need to drive there. The driveway did accommodate 4 vehicles and probably could fit 5 if they were not all trucks or SUV's. There are cabins in close vicinity of you but with the greenery and tress in bloom you felt secluded and noise from them was not an issue.

We would definitely stay in this cabin again and would recommend it to everyone needing a cabin that has square footage and easy access to the parkway yet wanted a quiet location. My favorite part was sitting on the back porch swinging on the swing while drinking my morning coffee and hearing the sounds of the outside! Thanks again Steve and Renee!!

There is no place like the Ren's Nest!

  • 5 of 5

A group of high school friends has been coming here for 10 years. We always look forward to our time together in January or February of each year. We have already booked for next year. The cabin is large, with 4 bathrooms (important to a bunch of women) 5 bedrooms and is so attractively appointed. We cook, watch TV, sit in front of the fire, rock and renew. Love this cabin and can't imagine going anywhere else. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

60th Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

My three siblings and our families brought our parents to Rens Nest for everyone to celebrate our parents 60th anniversary. What a wonderful location to relax for everyone ages 4 months to 83 years old!! The best features for our group were the downstairs game room area and the extra large eating area including the screened in porch right off the dining area. It was a weekend we will cherish.
