About Mrs. Valerie Farmer

I love providing accommodations to happy couples I clean & book my cabins myself, I have 2, one bedroom cabins, both on the same road in “Hemlock Falls”, known for it’s large lots, 48 cabins on 75 acres, all the cabins are different designs and nature prevails. “A Passionate View” is a luxury log cabin & "The Fishing Hole" is a more simple, basic log cabin. I use professional cleaning chemicals, furnish them with quality linens & bedding, quality towels, the best paper products and a personal touch. I’m also a certified spa/pool operator so you are in for nice safe soaks too! I’m always available should you need assistance, silent if you don’t. I live just a few cabins away and I’m finally living my simple mountain dream life among nature! My other cabin is also on HomeAway & VRBO... "The Fishing Hole" #3616430 has a private fish pond. Both are fun, private and serene. I'm also a hiker if you need info about the 900 miles of maintained trails in the Smokies to choose from!

Mrs. Valerie Farmer purchased this cabin in 2015

Best Cabin in the Smokey Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is absolutely amazing and offers everything as advertised, and more! My fiancé and I visited in mid-January and enjoyed the entire experience. Foremost, the views from the balcony are absolutely gorgeous and the hot-tub was the perfect way to soak up the mountains. The peacefulness of this cabin offered tranquility that is incomparable to, arguably, all across Appalachia. Being that I am from this area, I hope my testimony yields merit in saying this was, truly, an exquisite and romantic experience of a lifetime. Thank you so much Valerie! I hope to be back!

Another Great Stay At A Passionate View

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stay at this cabin for a week just about every year. We love the semi-seclusion, the hot tub on the deck with a great view of Mount LeConte, the high-speed internet that lets us binge watch Netflix, the comfortable bed and the full kitchen. Valerie is great and takes care of us which keeps us coming back. If you are looking for a higher-end cabin for two in Gatlinburg, this is the one.

One of the best weeks of my life!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I just came back from spending Thanksgiving week in the cabin "A Passionate View!" To say it exceeded our expectations is an understatement. Reviewers are correct when they say pictures don't do the place justice. The views are absolutely BREATHTAKING! Val, the owner, has such attention to detail. The cabin is extremely well maintained and fully stocked! The hot tub, outdoor fireplace, and game room are fabulous. The kitchen has everything you could need to cook meals, the bed is extremely comfortable, and the leather couch downstairs is so soft and cozy! Though we never saw a bear, the owners Beagle dog Toby would come up the driveway to visit each day and get some belly scratches from us, such a sweetheart! This was our first time in Tennesse and I am certain it will not be our last. COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER VACATION OR CABIN!

P.S. Highly, highly recommend the mac and cheese and bbq ribs from Three Jimmy's! Absolutely delicious, friendly staff, reasonable prices.
