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 ).

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Monte Cristo twice in the last six months. As long as it is available, we will ALWAYS stay at Monte Cristo. The views are breathtaking and the very best I have ever experienced even though we have vacationed in the Smokies dozens of times! The cabin is emaculate with every amenity you could ask for. From the upscale artwork, to the well-maintained furniture, this cabin does not have a "rental" feel but rather a five-star resort.

After a long day playing, and shopping, there is nothing better than a relaxing time in the hot tub, followed by a great night's sleep in any of the super-comfortable beds. I truly cannot say a single negative thing about our experience.

The owner is a delight to work with and could not be more accommodating. Monte Cristo is our new home-away-from-home!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend Monte Cristo! Wake up to a beautiful sunrise over the mountains. We took our family for a surprise vacation. They were not disappointed! Played pool while overlooking the mountain tops. Comfortable beds, nice fireplaces, great hot tub on the deck. Just an overall comfortable, cozy place that is very convenient to anything in Pigeon Forge.

1st Time @ Monte Cristo but not the last.....

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time vacationing the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area and I must say that we enjoyed every minute of it! While arriving at the cabin we were blown away at the amazing views that Monte Cristo has. The pictures do not do it justice. The cabin was immaculate and and well stocked with cooking utensils. It was located in the middle of took us minutes to drive to Gatlinburg. John was a pleasure to deal with and his recommendations on restaurants & attractions made our trip memorable! Our favorite place to eat was Applewood Grille @ the Apple Barn...exceptional homecooking! We took advantage of the grille on the patio and stayed in some nights for dinner. We will definitely be back at Monte Cristo for our next cabin trip!! Thanks John!

30th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend Monte Cristo for any type of vacation trip. The cabin has the most amazing views and plenty of room. It was so nice to enjoy the hot tub after a long day of walking and sight seeing. Can't beat the sun rises and we only missed one. The beds were very comfortable and the cabin was just an over all relaxing atmosphere and so close to the Parkway in Pigeon Forge!

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors to the area and have stayed in Sherwood Forest before. This was our first stay at Monte Cristo. We were very happy with the dishes, many use mix matched sets but Monte Cristo had good quality, complete sets. Many nice pots, pans and baking sheets got plenty of use. Air always kept up with the heat and it was very comfortable. Some of the guests enjoyed the hot tub (some multiple times). Grilled out a few times on the gas grill and enjoyed the views every morning. Will be back for sure.

Very good communication with cabin owner. I definitely suggest a stay at the Monte Cristo and make sure you take a picture with Yacopo!
