About John - Owner/Manager 601-540-8150

Owner Managed Property

John - Owner/Manager 601-540-8150 purchased this cabin in 2010

Why John - Owner/Manager 601-540-8150 chose Tennessee



A PREMIUM CABIN WITH AMAZING UNEQUALED VIEWS ! One of the "Top 5 Mountain Views" that you can rent.

This cabin has breathtaking mountain views ! The best we found - after touring at least 30 something cabins. We knew this cabin was 'Very Special', so we bought it.


It is a wonderful place to stay and we make sure it is maintained in a very clean and immaculate state.


Many of the cabins that we saw had mountain views that were distant or that could only be seen from one spot on the deck or a couple of places in the cabin - but quite limited.


At Monte Cristo, the mountains are 'In Your Face' as they are close up and personal. Not only are they close up, but they are also distant. You see mountains right in front of you and they are so close, it becomes surreal. They are close up and you see the mountains drift off for miles. The views can be seen from almost anywhere in the cabin. It is quite unique and unlike anything we saw from any other cabin. The mountains actually wrap around the cabin and give you a panoramic feel. You see it right when you first walk up to the front steps.


We just want to share this unique experience with all of our guests. We want to offer our tenants a wonderful vacation experience. A vacation to remember !


Thank you so much, . . . ( John - Cabin Owner ).

The perfect place to destress our family

  • 5 of 5

We booked Monte Criso based on the beautiful views shown in the ad. We were not disappointed. Not only were the views spectacular, the rooms inside the cabin were cozy, especially the downstairs sitting room. The cabin was very clean and inviting on arrival. Check in was easy and the directions very good. The location is excellent and for convenience alone its worth staying here. Being at the end of Pigeon Forge toward Gatlinburg makes access to the national park very easy while at the same time having easy access to Pigeon Forge. We did some activities but also spent a fair amount off time relaxing at the cabin, playing games, watching TV or on demand movies, playing pool and enjoying the hot tub. Monte Cristi was the perfect place to destress our family. We were 6 adults and 3 children aged 5, 3, and 2 months.

A++ Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at the Monte Cristo this past week and had a wonderful time! The cabin is spacious and clean and the view is truly the best! We have never been to the area and had a really fun time exploring. Our best decision was choosing John's cabin! Our children (13,16,18) had plenty of space to be alone if they wanted to be, and fun things to do together like hang out in the hot tub or play a game of pool. Of course we explored all areas of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, from the mountains to the amusements to shopping, but finding a comfortable spot to wind down and feel at home was the best part! Everyone slept great on the comfortable beds! We all had a very memorable time together as a family...Thank you John and we will be back again!

Christmas in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been coming to the area for Christmas for several years. We are a group of seven from ages 3 to 79... It is a time for all of us to slow down and just enjoy the time together. The Monte Cristo cabin was comfortable, convenient to everything when we wanted to go out, and the views were the most amazing we have experienced thus far in any of the rentals we have stayed in. Working with John, the owner, was a pleasure. He was always available and attentive. I would recommend this cabin to anyone who is trying to get away and spend time with family or friends.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful. Amazing views. The cabin is clean and well maintained. The photos are representative of what the cabin really looks like. The owner, Mr. Vallas, was quick in responding to email inquiries before the arrival and was very helpful. The cabin is in a great area, very close to the Parkway but far enough away that you don't hear the traffic or get in the way of the fantastic views of the mountains. :) Also very close to the National Park. My family and I will definitely stay here again.

A Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I am tempted to write a horrible review so that other people won't book this cabin in the future and I can have it all to myself....but that would not be the right thing to do to John, the owner. What a wonderful getaway in a mountain top retreat so close to the main parkway. What is it 3-4 minutes to the main Parkway by old Mill Creek road?

Our family had a wonderful first trip to Pigeon Forge and despite the 104 degree visit to Dollywood all had fun. In fact, returning to the cabin right before a thunderstorm was a treat that day. Watching the storms run through the blue smoky mountains, some of which were actually BELOW us was AMAZING to watch. We slept like babies to the sound of rain on our roof. Or is sleepiness a side effect of heat stroke? ha!

John was accessible and readily available by phone for any of our needs and my wishes are only the best for this caring owner.

There are minor details that need addressing like maybe replacing the microwave and washer door but these are minor details that pale compared to the awesome views, the prime location to everything , the clean and comfortable cabin, and awesome customer attention John the owner provides. Will definitely look forward to staying again....maybe in fall or cooler weather...!

Family wedding

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting the mountains for a family wedding and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Monte Cristo. It was clean and very spacious. We especially enjoyed the hot tub, the view from the porches and playing pool at the end of the day. We were close enough to the mountains for several day hikes. On our last day, was saw a huge bear in the parking lot! What a way to end our trip to the mountains.
