About Sharon and Chris Power

Hi, My name is Chris. My wife Sharon and I are the owners of 'A License To Chill' which we purchased in February, 2006. We live near Knoxville and since our cabin is only 50 miles from our primary residence, we love going to our second home to decorate and maintain it throughout the year. Good maintenance and upkeep of our home is at the top of our list as owners and we feel you'll notice our attention to detail as soon as you arrive. We believe it is the extra amenities that make our cabin so special.

We chose our cabin because it is extremely convenient to all the attractions and entertainment Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Sevierville have to offer yet very private. Having 3 children and 4 grandchildren, we wanted a place close to home where we could go 'Chill Out', experience family togetherness, have everything close by and feel safe. Our gated community fit that goal. After having our cabin with a property management company for a few years and becoming very dissatisfied with their cleaning, supplies and maintenance, we elected to take over the management ourselves in June, 2010. We have been very blessed to have several returning guests in the time we've been managing our cabin. If you're like our family, you want all the comforts of home when you're on vacation. That's our focus with 'A License To Chill' - providing our wonderful guests clean, updated accomodations that are very affordable. Thank you for considering our lovely cabin. 'A License To Chill' lives up to it's name. The rest is up to you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great place to come "Chill". Your cabin is very cozy, comfortable, and at a location far enough away yet close enough to the parkway. We can tell you made a great effort to take care of every detail to make our stay perfect. We loved the fluffy towels !!

PERFECT!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for home feeling, clean,great location close to everything, well stocked...... this is it. We have stayed in several cabins in this area and this is the BEST yet. The owners make it so easy and welcoming for their renters. The cabin was very clean and was stocked with things from garbage bags, dishwashing detergent, cascade, Tide, bathroom soap and big nice thick towels(plenty of those also). We have always had to take supplies being they have never left enough stuff for our stay. Always have had to wash towels to have enough but not in A License to Chill. The pictures do not even begin to show what a wonderful cabin this is. Plan to stay here again and we have been telling all our friends. The only negative thing I have to say was we did not see a bear during our visit. Thanks Chris and Sharon for letting us use you clean comfortable home in the mountains.

Great cabin, Great owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at A License to Chill! First of all--the location couldn't have been better. We've stayed in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area before, but to avoid the "commercialism" we always ended up 20 minutes away from everything. This cabin is perfectly located--yet you still feel far away from it all. We followed the "You pick blackberries" signs to a small farm past the cabin. We picked blackberries and bought local blueberry wine. Such a fun treat. The cabin was very clean, beds very comfortable, and we did not need anything while we were there. Things we were concerned about that others may wonder--even though you are in a neighborhood--you feel very isolated--so no problems feeling like others are looking in on you. Also--we needed an area for a pack-n-play and I wasn't sure from the photos if the 2nd (upstairs) room would have enough space for a pack-n-play. It had room for 2 or 3!! There was plenty of space in the upstairs room for both of our girls. Chris was great to work with. So professional and polite! Would definitely come back. Only note to bathtub lovers (like myself)--the bathtub is not a good soaking tub--so I just found myself on the deck in the hot tub more often :)

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

A license to chill cabin was the perfect choice for our vacation. I researched several cabins on vrbo for weeks and narrowed it down to 2. The response I got from Chris when inquiring on his cabin was so friendly, thorough and professional it was an easy choice. As soon as we walked in the cabin we were blown away. The place is immaculate and even smelled great. I can definitely tell where Sharon has added a woman’s touch in the cabin on all levels to make it really comfortable. The furnishings, beds, and linens really are top of the line. One of the reasons I chose this cabin is that it’s their personal cabin where they vacation, not a run of the mill cabin that is merely set up sparsely for profit. That shows in the quality of everything. The towels really were thick and fluffy. The beds really were heavenly. The kitchen was indeed fully stocked. I made many meals the best being our steaks on the grill. I made my smoothies every morning there was even a blender. We simply adored the hot tub and used it every day. It was immaculate like every thing else in the cabin. We played pool and especially enjoyed the many cds, and dvds Chris labeled for his guests. He is so organized and provides all details on the cabin in easy to read guides. I really like that since I am a stickler for details. We saw a bear within an hour of being at the cabin. That was quite a thrill. It was the only one we saw in our four days at the cabin. We made so many memories, thanks Chris and Sharon for sharing your special place with us!

We had an wonderful time. The cabin was even better than described. They have a well stocked kitchen down to spices, teas and sweeteners. That was a extra bonus since I drink a lot of tea. The bed was just the right firmness. Cabin was easy to get to when you wanting to visit all the things to do in Pigeon Forge. The booking process was a breeze and they keep you informed regarding things to do around the area. Even though the resort hads several cabins you did not feel that way with this cabin. There are trees between the cabins.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time. We had a busy couple days leading up to our visit to your cabin. But what a joy to just relax. We did do some hiking up to Laurel Falls and yes, we saw 3 black bears!! It was so exciting.

Chris was very helpful with any questions we had prior to our trip. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone who wants a place that feels "like home".
