Overview

About the property

5 BR / 4 BA mountaintop log lodge, one-of-a-kind and second to none

One-of-a-kind is one of the only appropriate phrases to use when attempting to convey the true beauty of this property through words, and even that phrase falls horribly short in describing the astounding aura surrounding this property. It has a renewing quality to each and every person it welcomes that cannot be attributed to many places on Earth. Perched high above an ocean-like valley, the view from the deck is simply awe-inspiring. If peace, privacy, and a place to renew yourself is that for which you are searching, you have found that and more. This is our American take on a French chateau and your opportunity to retreat from all things normal. It may sound like hyperbole, but trust us…it’s not.

As secluded as it gets, the lodge—which we anticipate you will enjoy calling your own—is situated on three and one-half acres of professionally manicured grounds flanked by forest. On your approach, you are greeted by a towering gate, constructed of the same British Columbia Cedar logs as the home for which it stands guard. Down the circular lane, as the spectacular lodge fills your view, is a Koi pond (absolutely NO fishing—only viewing them in their peaceful habitat, thank you!) as well as a dock and seating. Upon entering this palatial sanctuary through its double front doors, there is a uniquely calm feeling all around you. Each and every bit of the home is built from Canadian Cedar, and it exudes a sense of oneness, as if it naturally belongs right where it is, as now do you. In front of you in the cathedral-like living room is a wood-burning fireplace with a backdrop of windows exposing the valley below you, stretching what seems like endlessly into the distance.

In total, the lodge will comfortably accommodate 10 adult guests. There are five bedrooms, with two bedrooms on one wing, two on the opposing wing, and the master bedroom upstairs to afford maximum privacy to all guests. There is a ceiling fan and high-quality bed in every room. In the master bedroom, there is a private balcony with a small cafe table and two chairs. Also in the master bedroom, there are two additional single beds about the right size for children, should they be needed. There are four full bathrooms. The master bathroom has a walk-in shower and double vanity, while two of the remaining bathrooms incorporate claw-foot tubs with showerheads above. The basement bathroom is equipped with a traditional shower/tub. The kitchen is fully equipped and is separated from the living/dining room by a bar lined with three log barstools. There is a dining table by the fireplace with space for six, as well as a breakfast table for three between the kitchen and dining area.

In the living room, there is a flat-screen television with two plush leather sofas. As for the basement, leather couches are elevated for theater seating in front of a gargantuan plasma screen television equipped with digital cable, every channel offered by the local provider, and a DVD player. On the opposite side of the basement are a ping-pong table and foosball table. The basement is walkout, and the view outside these doors is just as spectacular as the one from the decks above. We do have a fire pit available for guest use, but there are no fires allowed outside the pit. There is central, zoned heating and air conditioning throughout the property as well as high-speed wireless Internet access and cellular service. A washer and dryer are available for your convenience. This property is ideal for family vacations, romantic getaways, or corporate retreats.

About Sharry

We are a family owned and operated company. This company was started by flipping houses that were in bad shape and helping families buy them who may not otherwise have been able to afford them or obtain financing. We later grew that into buying struggling small businesses, turning them around and allowing someone else to step in and live their dream. We then discovered the importance of families having safe, clean, affordable, and well maintained properties to stay in while they enjoy that very important family time....hence, our family expanded into the vacation rental business. We strive for 100% guest satisfaction and encourage our guests to let us know what we can do to make certain their time at a Sincerely Sharry properties exceeds their expectations. Please visit our other properties and join the many families who have made our properties their home away from home. The photo is of one of our family retreats at the cabin, sitting in the back, enjoying God's artwork.

Sharry purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Sharry chose Fall Creek Falls

We searched for about two years for just the right cabin. We wanted a lodge that felt like a real log cabin from the moment you drove onto the property; we found it in this one. We wanted a quality built log lodge in a private location yet close enough to activities and necessities; we found it in this one. We wanted a lodge that had breathtaking views and amazing sunsets; we found it in this one. We wanted a lodge that had well maintained grounds for kids to play on yet, the wooded area for beauty and the secluded cabin feel. We wanted a lodge that you didn't feel as if you were going to fall off a cliff to get to it; we found it in this one. We believe in the importance of 'family time' and we wanted a lodge that was large enough to be home away from home for an extended family; we found it in this one. Most of our guests are repeat guests, we believe this lodge is just the right one for that special getaway...long or short. We hope to see you soon.

What makes this lodge unique

This lodge is large enough for a family gathering but unique and romantic enough for a private getaway for two...it is truly one of a kind.

The view from the full length back deck is breathtaking, morning or evening.

The non-stop waterfall at the Koi pond is a favorite spot to relax and unwind as you watch the fish swim.

Little Piece Of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Can’t say enough about this place-the pictures really do not do it justice.

If you want Peace & Quiet and Breathtaking views this is for you. Love the

Koi pond the fish will follow you around it like a puppy-very relaxing to just

swing listening to the water fall and watching the fish-Heaven. House has

Everything you need the kitchen has EVERYTHING you need or want never

seen so much in a kitchen you don’t want for anything in there. The game room

is a great spot and very comfortable. It was so clean, a great plus.

The views from the deck are awesome it’s just hard to pick a spot, every view

back, side, front, can’t go wrong-good place for walking too.

Close to State Parks with beautiful waterfalls, area is beautiful country.

I can’t say enough about Sharry, she went over and beyond to help me and

let me bug her-answered all my questions emailed me back so fast-I feel

like I’ve known her a long time, she’s one in a million (no joke).

I've been going to the smokey mountains for years and I've never stay in a nicer place.

I really want to go back here again, and I think Fall would be spectacular.

Follow all the directions that are sent to you and you won't go wrong-easy

Sharry thank you again for everything !!!!

Beautiful property, residence, & view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying at this lodge! Our Moonbeam Yoga group rented the cabin to take advantage of a retreat setting to dive deeper into our studies of this ancient art & science. It was lovely practicing our yoga & meditation out on the deck overlooking the hills of TN and we enjoyed hiking at Fall Creek Falls too! Highly recommend!

Secluded Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with Sharry's log cabin for our vacation. We are already considering another stay for a family reunion. It is in a very secluded location with breathtaking views. Families could spread out across three floors and tons of deck space. The cabin's kitchen is very nice and well-appointed. The media and game room downstairs were ideal. All-in-all, a very classy retreat. We have stayed in condos, houses, been on cruises, etc. If you are looking for a get-away that is truly secluded where you won't have to worry about crowds, rowdy neighbors or noisy traffic, this is the place for you! Fall Creek Falls State Park is less than 30 minutes away. Sharry's cabin is the perfect place to unwind after a day of hiking the waterfalls. She was very pleasant to deal with and quick to respond to requests for information, etc. The documentation Sharry provides (well in advance) will answer any questions you have about the property from how to operate the climate control system to feeding the koi.

If you are looking for peace and quiet or an elegant cabin to gather family and friends, this is the place for you!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property do not do it justice. This is an amazing property with a stunning view! I cannot say enough about how happy we are with our stay here. The house was clean and fully functional with no issues whatsoever. It is a great place to get away and feel like you're truly on vacation. Sharry, the contact for the house, was always very prompt and extremely easy to work with. She made sure our group felt at home and was there if we had any questions. If Sharry will have us back, we will definitely book this cabin again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share firsthand with others what we try but certainly fail to fully show in pictures. The cleanliness and attention to detail at our lodge is something we greatly pride ourselves on, and to know you all appreciated it is the best compliment we can receive. And of course, we would be so delighted to have you back! As always, when you need us, we will be here. - Tyler for Sincerely Sharry Properties

Amazing views and accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was even better than we expected. We had a small company retreat here and we more than comfortably accommodated. Everything we needed was there. The beds were comfortable. The views incredible. The responsiveness of the property manager to my questions and needs was more than helpful. I recommend this property highly, and I hope to go back soon.
