We fell in love with the serenity, mountain view, and this is a great place to reconnect with friends and family. I am very happy to see such good reviews on the cabin, and opening this place up to others has been a treat!
Bryan purchased this Chalet in 2015
Why Bryan chose Stecoah
Being here feels like you are in a treetop house, it's secluded yet only a short drive to civilization and tons of outdoor activities.

We had such a great time, thank you Brian. The place was spotless and all the amenities worked, thank God for the Hot Tub after we "Experienced" Riders got back from a long day. We had 2 full size pick ups towing 18' enclosed trailers and though it was tight we made the driveway no problem. If you are on a motorcycle and are a Novice this driveway may not be for you, but if you are even a rider of some experience it is fine. I highly recommend the Big Swag Lodge if you are looking for a quiet place to relax in this phenomenal area.
Thank so much for the opportunity to host you and your fellow bikers. I greatly appreciate the business, kind words and look forward to you staying at big swag in the future!
The address is a little hard to locate by gps but it’s marked with a sign. I recommend getting to the cabin before dark. We rode our can am Spyders from Miami, if you are coming on two wheelers I don’t suggest staying here due to the roads it’s gravel and there is a steep inclines and would be very difficult for two wheelers. We had some issues with ants in the loft bedroom but we contacted the owner and he got the rental company out here.
The place has a garage so it’s great for storage of motorcycle trailers.
We really enjoyed our stay here also it’s not far from the tail of the dragon and the city is 20 minutes from the cabin. We rode all over the Smokey mountains and visited gatlinburg and pigeons forge
And Maggie Valley also visited blue ridge. The cabin is in a well located area. Can’t wait to visit next year
The weather was great at night low 50s and mid 70s during the day, great for ryding

Very nice getaway!
We recently stayed at Big Swag and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I was actually sad we didn’t book for longer.
First off, I’m one of those people that will read every review before making a decision about something - so for the people out there like me, this is for you!
Bryan was very nice. He responded quickly and was very accommodating. The house was very nice and eat-off-the-floor clean!! It was well-stocked with everything one would need.. we didn’t have to leave the house, and we didn’t because it rained... the views are awesome and the one bedroom (w/bathroom) is actually in the loft so you can see the mountains from the big triangular window that you are facing when you wake up. There are two bedrooms on the main floor that share a bathroom and a sofa bed in the extremely spacious basement (w/a three piece bathroom).. there is a washer and dryer too. The house is nicely decorated- I kept thinking “rustic elegance”. There are two decks with chairs, a swing, bbq grill, hot tub and fire pit!! What? I said EVERYTHING! The rental office even gives you a welcome call and asks if there is anything you need. We wanted to extend our stay for a few more hours and they allowed it. There is a cute guestbook to sign, which is a nice touch. I would definitely stay again. One thing though, if you go up late at night, although the road is well-lit, it is steep, so look for the street sign that says “Tranquility”.. something (maybe Place). ..and make a very careful right from the sign. The house is right there. Oh and there is no phone service so screenshot the WiFi info before you get there or you’ll be without it. Have fun!!
Thanks Bryan for a fun time that was had by all!
Thanks so much for the great review, hope you’ll come back to visit us again!
Perfect winter gettaway
This was a perfect winter getaway to celebrate post Christmas and New Years Eve. The cabin was clean and well equipped to handle the cold with a fireplace, firepit and got tub. The full basement was perfect for games and coffee/TV for early risers and an extra place to sleep. This was everything i would expect in a cabin gettaway.
Perfect getaway for a holiday weekend
My friends and I—7 adults, 2 kids, and the pup—spent the Thanksgiving weekend at Big Swag and it was the perfect place for us to enjoy our holiday meal, unwind, and watch all the football. We prepared a beautiful thanksgiving feast while taking in the mountain views, and the rec room was a great place for us to play games after the little ones went to bed. Bryson City and Robbinsville were about 30 minutes away and provided shopping, entertainment, and hiking options for our late-November trip. Thank you Bryan, we enjoyed our stay!
Thank you so much for staying at Big Swag and I’m very happy to hear you all had a great Thanksgiving!!
Beautiful and very comfortable mountain home. We loved it. And we will be back!
We had a wonderful time at the big swag Mountain home retreat! The home was very clean and comfortable with loads of amenities.
Thank you Jim. Appreciate the kind words and look forward to having you stay again!
The county recently changed the name of the road and subsequent house address to: 38 Tranquility Pines. Maps have not yet updated but there is a road sign for Tranquility Pines, along with the signs pointing to Big Swag Lodge so you'll have no problem finding the cabin. Mapquest has the address as "510 The Pnes" Goodle has it as "510 The Pines"
