About Donnie Mohn

I bought 'Horse Shoe Bend' in 2006. To me the Smoky Mountain Region had always been appealing. There is endless beauty and a rich history throughout the area. My son, Donnie handles the rentals for the cabin and we visit it often as we enjoy our trips there every bit as much as our guests. We welcome you to visit 'Horse Shoe Bend' on your next visit to the great Smoky Mountains.

Why Donnie Mohn chose Bryson City Area

This particular location is so convenient to all there is to offer yet it is located off of the beaten path and offers such peace and quiet after a day of taking in all of the sights and activities in the area.

The cabin was great but the driveway was a little tricky.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was great it had everything we needed and it was close to all the attractions we wanted to see but the driveway was an accident waiting to happen. It was on a little rise and you couldn't see if you were on driveway or a drop off, a little scary. The hot tub was wonderful and very relaxing slept great after.

Tucked Away on a Mountain Side

  • 5 of 5

We would like to Thank the owners, Donnie and Brenda Mohn for sharing there BEAUTIFUL home in the mountains with us. We recommend the rental of this cabin to anyone who is planning time away in the mountains. The cabin is very spacious and fully stocked with everything you need, just bring your clothes and food, and enjoy the peace and quiet after a day of adventures or just hang out at the cabin all day. Either way you can't go wrong choosing this cabin for vacation or just a get away for a few days. We enjoyed cooking out on the grill (that is provided), building a small fire in the fire pit and relaxing in the hot tub during the evenings. The next time we decide to vacation in the mountains, the Horse Shoe Bend will be our first choice to see if it is available. We look forward to our next stay.
