About The Owner

Bob and Cindy Hosford own and manage the Dreamcatcher Cabin and Tanasi Lodge. We pay personal attention and add amenities both inside and outside the properties to provide extra touches not found when not personally managed. We are available full time to provide information on hiking trails, shopping, events, and some discount tickets. The grounds have beautiful flower beds. The most unique aspect of the cabin and lodge is that there is an incredible view of the mountains from both the front AND the rear of the houses.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 2005

Why The Owner chose Tennessee

This property is owned and managed by the couple who built it! It is like renting someone's home, not a cabin or lodge managed by a rental property! There is SO much more provided that you would never find in a home managed by a rental company! All cleaning supplies are provided, and not small packets! All paper towel, napkins, toilet paper, plastic trash bags, soap for kitchen, laundry, and bath! Also provided is a pantry with dry goods, and all major spices! Children enjoy the ground level video games, pool table and side yards, with adults enjoying the main and third floors with no noise interruption!

What makes this lodge unique

It is rare to find a property with incredible grounds, with waterfalls, fountains, beautiful flower beds, fire pits, play areas, on the top of a mountain! It is also very rare to find homes that are SO private, quiet, secluded, with INCREDIBLE views from both the front AND the back of the house! You can watch the sun rise from the front deck and see it set in the back! Amazing sunrises and sunsets, and SO private! To sit on the decks at night to see the beautiful moon, stars, and landscape lighting while hearing the waterfall is a soothing experience! To drink coffee in the morning and watch the humming birds is Great!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so very glad to see the new completely paved road to both the Tanasi Lodge and Dreamcatcher Cabin. Getting to the Lodge and Dreamcatcher was SO easy now that the roads are completely paved. We do plan to come again soon.

A must for family reunions!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion the week of June 18th at the Tanasi Lodge. If you think the online video is captivating, just wait until you are actually there! The views are absolutely spectacular, the sunrises and sunsets are something you will not want to miss by sleeping late or going to bed early! The owner, Cindy, has an eye for every little detail and makes sure even before you arrive that all of your needs and questions are being met. The lodge itself was spotless and stocked beyond what we expected. The beds are so comfortable, its like sleeping in your own bed. If you have toddlers, no need to worry about the stairs because there are baby gates and there is a local place to rent cribs and high chairs from (they do delivery to the lodge) I would not change one thing about this place, it is perfect!

A great destination for a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

Not the typical vacation rental. It was like staying with a friend in their beautiful home in the mountains. We had 30 people including families, single adults and children and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep with plenty of privacy. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. Cindy, the owner, was very much involved in making sure we had a memorable experience. The first drive to the top of the mountain was a little unnerving (paved all the way) but after a couple of trips you felt like a native. The views were worth it. We were able to park 11 big cars but it required a little planning and cooperation. With the landscaping it felt very secluded, private and quiet. The cost was less than $100 per night per bedroom. Probably the best bargain for a Smokey Mountain vacation going. Mike S. Clemson SC

A great place for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The views a spectacular, with balconies on two levels and both sides of the house you have a great view no matter where you look. There are enough places for folks to gather to either sit quietly or in larger groups to play games or talk. The fire pit was great and was well used. There were 19 of us and we could have fit more without a problem. So very glad we came to Tanasi Lodge! Everyone in our group from 19 to 98 had great time and enjoyed being there.

Phenomenal Views!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a-mazing and perfectly located! A group of us friends from all over the state and Kentucky annually meet every fall to enjoy a hike, watch football, eat great food and hang out. This is our favorite cabin by far!! It is well furnished with everything you would need, beautifully decorated and plenty of room for everyone! This year we had 14 adults and 2 kids with rooms to spare! Aside of the scary driveway since the cabin is literally located on top of the mountain with well worthy breath taking views, we love the Wears Valley location and the easy access to the back way into the mountains. We are sad time goes too fast but we are already looking forward to our visit next year!! Highly recommend to this cabin to everyone!

Owner's Response: THANKS so very much for returning. We love having our guests who come back every year! The good news about the road is that it is all completely paved and all is a county road except the last 1/10 mile which is paved also. The road is really very safe since the Lodge is almost at the end of the road and there are only a couple of houses past. So you would almost never see another car! Thank again and see you next year for the beautiful leave season!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This property is a piece of Heaven on Earth. We had 24 people in our party ranging in ages from 2 months - 87 years young & everyone was very comfortable and impressed with the lodge. You can not beat the setting atop Hatcher Mountain for its spectacular views. We were very happy with the location being halfway between the heart of Pigeon Forge (shopping & entertainment) and Townsend (tubing the Little Pigeon River/biking the Cade's Cove loop/hiking the trails in the Great Smoky Mtns/dining at Miss Lilly's Cafe). The lodge owners have also beautifully landscaped the property with flowers, flowering trees & planted window boxes off the porch rails. Although large, the lodge 'feels like home' with its sufficiently furnished common areas. The kitchens are well-stocked with everything you could need during your stay. The 'extra" ammenities were fantastic as well- gas grills, fire pit, laundry facility, pool table, and hot tub! We had a fabulous stay at Tanasi Lodge & will recommend it to all our friends!

Soooooooo Happy our First Choice Fell Through!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Finding a great location for a large group of people can be a challenge. We finally found one and booked it over a year in advance. Three months before our vacation the property was sold, and our reservations were gone! WHAT A BLESSING!!!!!!!! We searched and just before we were ready to give up, my wife found the Tanasi Lodge! I know the “DreamCatcher” is next door, however the Tanasi Lodge was a DREAM to behold!! Although the beautiful video and pictures on the website are very good….they really can’t do justice to how beautiful the lodge really is . The lodge was very well stocked with everything our group could possibly need. We had all ages and abilities from 2 months old to 88!! Our senior members needed some assistance to get to the main floor, however we had a lot of help and things went smoothly. ( My idea was to tie them to a chair and pull them up over the deck….but that was quickly vetoed!! ( Just kidding Cindy!!!! You don’t need additional insurance!) Some of our group enjoyed the many activities available in the area, while others just wanted to relax on the deck enjoying the humming birds and listening to the waterfall . The Lodge itself is a destination!! One of our favorite times was just sitting around the firepit , making S’mores, ( they even had the skewers ) and just enjoying the crickets!! I could go on and on, but to say that we enjoyed our time there would be an understatement!! It was so much more than advertised and we look forward to coming back again!
