About the property

1 Bed-1 Bath-Loft-Excellent Location-Private Back Porch-Hot Tub-Free WIFI

Mountain Memories is an owner managed, intimate log cabin nestled in beautiful Sky Harbor. This unique log cabin is in a prime location between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and is a short drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The cabin is easily accessible via well-maintained, paved roads and has off-road private parking. You will enjoy this quiet, wooded, low-traffic area with privacy from neighboring cabins.

The interior boasts of beautiful hardwood floors and exposed logs with unique, handcrafted cedar furnishings displaying the owner's wood-crafting expertise. Each piece of furniture was made to accent the beauty of this cabin and its quiet, peaceful surroundings.

Mountain Memories cabin is the perfect place for an anniversary retreat, a weekend escape, or a week-long vacation to relax and unwind with your spouse. You will enjoy the cozy ambiance of a beautifully decorated and well-maintained mountain cabin. You will find a fully equipped kitchen ideal for cooking if you choose not to leave the cabin during your stay. You will also enjoy nestling up on the reclining leather sofa and love seat, in front of the gas fireplace, to watch the 39” flat screen TV.

You will enjoy quiet, restful sleep in the King-Size Master Suite with a memory foam mattress. You will also find a 39” flat screen TV in the armoire along with a DVD player and an assortment of movies which are family friendly. The jetted jacuzzi tub in the bedroom will complete your romantic getaway.

For a better view of the mountain scenery, you may choose to relax and unwind as you watch for wildlife from the hot tub on the covered back porch. The 5-person hot tub features a reclining seat and waterfall. You may choose to sit in the rocking chairs as you enjoy your morning coffee, or you may want to sit in the custom cedar log swing.

The spacious bathroom has a well-lit shower, linen closet, hair dryer and a quiet, energy efficient washer and dryer.

Escape to the loft to challenge your companion to a game of pool, play some cards or board games at the tall cafe table, or simply relax and read a good book on the reclining leather sofa and love seat.

In front of the cabin, you will find that the owner has handcrafted a replica of an old-fashioned outhouse to contain your trash so the forest animals cannot access it. The front of the cabin has been beautifully landscaped with knockout roses and various perennials. There is also a charcoal grill with a stone bench and table for your convenience. Grilling utensils are provided. A bench has been added to the front porch, handcrafted from cedar, for guests to enjoy. Great place to relax while dinner is cooking on the grill.

The owners have invested a lot of time and love into Mountain Memories so that each of their guests will marvel at the Mountain Memories they create.

Traveler Reviews:

When I first walked inside, I was completely blown away! This cabin looks and feels brand new! My husband and I came to enjoy the beautiful hiking trails and to spend time together. We have stayed in other cabins in various states, but this one surpasses them all! It is so warm and cozy! This cabin doesn't feel like a rental, it feels like a home. The owners obviously take great care in caring for the cabin, from the gorgeous, handmade furniture, to providing every little thing a renter could need. The location of the cabin is perfect - just minutes from the heart of Gatlinburg and the entertainment of Pigeon Forge. The cabin is very serene and private, but not completely isolated. We felt safe and relaxed during our entire stay. The hot tub was the perfect way to begin and end each day! We absolutely love this place and plan to come here again! Thank you so much for providing a wonderful home away from home. We appreciate how immaculate everything was. The kitchen was very well stocked. The bed and couches are very comfortable. Thank you for the great vacation.


What an amazing place to stay and relax in the beauty of the mountains. We loved all the beautiful furnishings and woodwork. Our favorite thing was playing pool in the loft. It was nice to have the pool table and hot tub to just relax at the cabin. The location was also nice as we spent a day in Gatlinburg and a day in Pigeon Forge. It was a short drive to both cities. Overall my husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect weekend. Between the cleanliness, the location, and all the amenities, we were truly blessed and can't wait to come back again.

About Gary & Kathy Edwards

We are Gary and Kathy and we are life-long, local Tennessee residents and this is our only cabin. We clean and maintain the cabin ourselves. We are proud to live so close to the beautiful Smoky Mountains. This has always been our family's favorite vacation place. Our children are grown and have moved away, but they always look forward to coming 'home' to the mountains.

Gary & Kathy Edwards purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Gary & Kathy Edwards chose Tennessee

We chose this property because of its location. We love coming to the mountains to hike, soak up the beauty of God's creation and enjoy quality time together as a family. We feel extremely blessed to own this cabin and for the opportunity we have to share our vacation home with you.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is in a very peaceful, quiet location. Sitting on the covered back porch you can watch squirrels scampering through the trees, gaze at the beautiful starry sky at night, soak in the hot tub after a long day of hiking or shopping and just RELAX. Everything you need for a great vacation is here. You do not have to drive far to enjoy all the attractions that Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and surrounding areas have to offer.

WOW - What a wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your Mountain Memories Cabin with us. Loved it from the moment we opened the door and all the way thru to the back porch. Could not have asked for a better place to get away from all the cares of the world. The cabin was clean and well stocked. The view off the back porch was great and private.

If we get the chance to get away again your Cabin will be our first choice.

Outstanding Cabin Rental

  • 5 of 5

We are VRBO owners ourselves and therefore have personal experience with the reality of vacation rentals. This cabin was exceptionally clean, well-organized and very comfortable for a couple. The owners were very helpful and responsive and made the entire experience a pleasure. The roads to the cabin are a bit confusing initially but one gets the lay of the land quickly; it is a quick and easy drive to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and GSMNP. There are many lodging options in the area, but you should not hesitate to choose this cabin as your base of operations while exploring the region. The porch hot tub is a wonderful benefit. Highly recommended.

Great cabin for a couple

  • 5 of 5

We have rented cabins in the Pigeon Forge-Gatlinburg area for 25 years. This was our best experience with owners. They were thorough and timely with every communication from the time we rented the cabin through the post-departure "thank you" letter. The cabin itself was well-equipped and very comfortable. We enjoyed many hours playing pool as well as relaxing in the hot tub (that worked better than most). With the king bed, washer-dryer, two TV's, well-equipped kitchen and two sofas we enjoyed all the comforts of home.
