Tennessee Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

If you’re looking to experience the unbelievable beauty of the Smoky Mountains, breathtaking panoramic views, privacy, and an atmosphere seldom found in these hectic times our cabin provides the best. Everyone says that there is just something very special being at our cabin. Perfect for your honeymoon or romantic getaway. The cabins views are spectacular, providing an ever changing display of the beauty of the Smoky Mountains. The beautiful view encompasses the living area, almost like they are one. The view can be enjoyed from the living area in the cabin, from the large covered deck and the hot tub under a gazebo. The cabin is easily accessible year round with paved roads. Approximately 8 miles to Gatlinburg, 7 miles to Pigeon Forge and 7 miles to Sevierville. You’re close to all the area attractions, but outside of the traffic and congestion that the area often experiences.

This is our personal vacation home so the cabin is furnished and maintained at higher level than your average rental cabin. There’s a gas grill on the deck overlooking the beautiful view. Enjoy the beautiful stacked stone gas fireplace on cool evenings. The cabin is beautifully decorated with upscale furnishings. There are two queen log beds with nature inspired organic duvets cleaned regularly, with gel foam mattress pads for all year comfort. The kitchen is large and fully equipped. The spa bathroom provides an over-sized jetted tub and upscale shower. The cabin has central air, state of the art water filtration system, full sized washer and dryer.

We provide a wireless broadband device for Wi-fi.

We provide plenty of towels and two spa robes to enjoy the hot tub on the deck. We provide complimentary coffee, tea, sugar and sweeteners and microwave popcorn.

About Luana & Floyd Coats

Floyd and Luana Coats. Empty nesters working on our dream of retiring near the Smoky Mountains.

Luana & Floyd Coats purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Luana & Floyd Coats chose Tennessee

We have traveled most of the country but the Smoky Mountain National Park area is one the most beautiful you will find, with greatest people and great weather. We looked for a cabin for over a year and stayed in numerous rentals so we knew something very special when we found it. We have never seen a more beautiful view or location. Rather than looking at cabin upon cabin, we see the expansive mountain view and the farm in valley below. Since purchasing, we've been remodeling the cottage inside and out. We plan to retire in this cabin, its really our little dream home.

What makes this cabin unique

There's nothing better than sitting on the porch enjoying the view and the nature. The hummingbirds are regular guests during the season as our many beautiful songbirds. We enjoy the wonderful peacefulness only intruded on by beautiful singing birds or the occasional neighbor. There's just something very therapeutic at our cabin. Even working around the house is enjoyable in such a beautiful location. You can't miss a trip to Cades Cove or hiking the park's waterfalls. Occasionally of course we travel to town and enjoy all the attractions for vacationers.

shell mountain is almost heaven

  • 5 of 5

Shell mountain is an amazing place to stay it is almost heaven is how you feel when you stay there. The views are fabulous and beautiful and the decorating and comfort of Floyd and Luana`s home were amazing. Floyd was periodically checking in with us to see how things were. Both of their homes are amazing, we have stayed at both. This location of shell mountain was so peaceful and quiet and a perfect location. We have stayed at many places over the years and by far this was the best! We spent more time at shell mountain because of the view and peace and quite.

Serenity and Solitude

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from an 8 day stay at Shell Mountain and enjoyed it so much we plan to return again next spring. The cabin exceeded our expectations in every way. It is so beautifully decorated, comfortable and well-appointed. Everything you might need is provided, the kitchen is fully equipped and the beds are so comfortable! Most importantly, the cabin is immaculate. Cleanliness is really important to us and this cabin is spotless. The views are spectacular and the whole experience was just so peaceful and inviting that we decided to forgo our planned hikes and we stayed at the cabin the entire time. Floyd and Luana were a joy to work with and made our stay perfect! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

Absolutely amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We cant say enough about the Coats and their property. Shell Mountain is everything a person could want in a romantic, quiet, peaceful vacation in the Smokies. Far enough away from the hustle n bustle of all the tourist attractions but not so far that you cant enjoy it all. The view from practically everywhere in this beautifully decorated home is unparalleled. This was by far the best place we've ever stayed while vacationing in the mountains. Floyd and Luanna were wonderful hosts, very easy to deal with. We so hope they will share their home with us again.

Great little cabin with AMAZING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5

The owners did an excellent job with this place. It is very clean and well put together and has a very cozy feel. Breath taking views of the Smoky Mountains are definitely an added bonus with this cabin. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I'd recommend it for anyone who enjoys the quaint serenity of the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations, local and spectacular view exceeded our expectations. The cabin was well equipped with every amenity for comfort, entertainment and a restful, refreshing vacation. Communication and information was more than sufficient from the owners. We would readily choose this rental for a subsequent stay in the area.
