Gatlinburg Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Two story, 2 bedroom, 2 full bath cabin w/ beautiful views and privacy!

Celebrate your Honeymoon, Anniversary or Birthday at Take Me Away!

"Premier" custom cabin for couple's, private setting with beautiful views!

Coffee lovers...we now have a new Keurig & Mr Coffee at Take Me Away!

Check out our other "Five Star" cabins with the same great views & location:

"Time After Time" VRBO #565285

"The Good Life" VRBO #565286

Ideal location:

Take Me Away is a stand alone, modern log cabin, minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Our mountainous landscape is over 1/3 acre and offers a private, tucked away setting, with unforgettable Mt. Le Conte & Ski Mountain views.


Take Me Away is located less than 1/3 mile from the main connecting road (Parkway) between downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Our ideal location makes it easy to get into town quickly, but remote enough to enjoy a private cabin experience with the BEST mountain views. The road leading to Take Me Away is wide, black top paved and accessible within minutes from the main road.

Upgraded Amenities:

Take Me Away is the ideal cabin for couples or a party of four seeking an experience of a lifetime with all the high end amenities you would expect including oak hardwood floors, modern log furniture, large capacity Maytag washer and dryer, an Aspen King canopy in the loft master suite, a log queen bed in the second downstairs bedroom and a fully stocked, upgraded kitchen with newly installed granite and appliances.

The upstairs master "loft style" suite is a couples dream. Lay back and relax in the Aspen king canopy, enjoy a peaceful rest on the pillow top memory mattress by Bed Boss...simply irresistible!

The master flat screen allows you to watch your favorite movie or show without leaving your bed. Wake up to gorgeous outdoor views, all from your king canopy. The master has a full en suite bathroom featuring an eco-rain shower head, wall mounted hairdryer & oak armoire for additional storage.

The newly upgraded second bedroom (main floor) has a queen log bed, an armoire for storage, new pillow top Bed Boss memory mattress, high quality linens and brand new quilts for a wonderful night's sleep.

Entertainment amenities include:

**NEW...unlimited high speed "indoor/outdoor" Wi-Fi**

HDTV flat screens in both bedrooms and living room with prime cable programming including sports and music channels in master & living room, a full DVD movie library, free to our guests and a CD player.

Truly Spectacular Views:

The open floor plan, cathedral ceilings and large windows allow for beautiful (unrestricted) views of the Smoky Mountains: Ski Mountain (West view) and Mt. Le Conte (East view), which can be seen from multiple areas in the cabin.

The BEST Quality:

A word about our premium mattress selection...

Comfort is priority; safety is a must. We selected our premium mattresses from The Bed Boss Company.


The mattress material is healthy and toxin free, infused with bamboo and aloe, instead of common chemicals found in many commercial mattresses like lead, mercury and formaldehyde (which is very toxic). The pillow top and deep memory foam base has a 9 layer support system which conforms to your pressure points, providing amazing comfort. If you suffer from allergies, you will appreciate this special selection.

Only the best for our guests.

What we have that others do not...

Take Me Away has a private “Grill Garden” area just for our guests. This spacious picnic area is tucked away behind the cabin for a private, unique experience.

Enjoy an afternoon or evening BBQ, kick back in the sit and sip area or snuggle up with your honey under a string of evening lights. Romantic!

Grill Garden amenities include: a new six seat picnic table, charcoal grill w/ grilling utensils, hammock and a handmade couples swing with evening LED lights. Make the most of your Gatlinburg trip!

About Mike & Angela Weems

Prior professionals stepping off the corporate roller coaster, Take Me Away was our 2011 project and first vacation property. We took 18 months to find the perfect spot and waited it out until this specific cabin was available. Yes, it was worth the wait!

Visit our other 'Beach House' properties in Mexico Beach, FL at VRBO #469405 & 732541

Mike & Angela Weems purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Mike & Angela Weems chose Tennessee

Location says it all...guests want to maximize their vacation experience. Our cabin is situated between downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, minutes to either town, just off Parkway. Close yet, tucked away and stand alone, away from other properties for ultimate privacy.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin has unrestricted, amazing mountain views. We offer an outside hot tub OR an inside Jacuzzi, the best of both worlds. Few cabins have a private grill garden area. This outside living space is perfect for summer and fall activities.

This cabin is truly a perfect couple's cabin offering the ultimate in privacy, high end amenities and all the luxuries of a five star property. Honeymoons, Anniversaries, Birthdays or a special getaway with your honey; Take Me Away is THE premier couple's cabin in Gatlinburg.

Perfect Anniversary Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Take Me Away was amazing! The cabin is beautiful, the property is beautiful, the beds are even great! It is located close to sites and activities. The hot tub on the deck was great and offered a great way to start your day or end it after a long hike or full day of activities. Looking forward to visiting again!

Great views and beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at "take me away". The cabin had lovely decorations that made it feel like home. The beds were amazingly comfy as well. We really enjoyed the backyard grill, swing and hammock and also spent alot of time in the hot tub. The views from the deck and hot tub were breathtaking, we did not want to leave. It had a great location close to the trails in the national park and also close to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, where there were alot of activities. We would definitly recommend staying here, and may have to return because we loved it so much.

Owner's Response: Hi Carleigh, We appreciate you staying with us at Take Me Away :) It sounds like you had an amazing stay. The number one thing that caught our eye when searching for a cabin was the unbelievable views from the deck & living room...and of course the privacy. We would love to have you both back again! Sincerely, Angela & Mike
