My name is Julie Shaffery and I am from New Jersey. I am a real estate broker. My husband Michael and I have three children. We all enjoy riding our horses and vacationing in the Smokys. We are so happy that we can make our dream part of yours by sharing our vacation home with you. This picture was taken in August 2011 in Cades Cove when my husband and I renewed our wedding vows. I brought 18 family members with us from NJ.
Julie Shaffery purchased this cabin in 2013
This property was a stones throw away from our other cabin and we thought it would be nice to keep our family close by during gatherings.
We take extra special care of our property. We expect the cabin to be clean and pest free exactly the way we want to stay in a vacation home. We are so happy that we can share this with other families.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at cabin Joy. It's our second time there and inside and out with love the log cabin and the area. We feel like we're right at home when we open the door it's always a breath of fresh air. This year we were able to go twice and are so thankful to the owners. They are truly genuine wonderful people who want you to enjoy the peace and relaxation that the Smokies bring to all! All that was a long drive my 3 boys my husband and myself look for it of course to getting there but once we do the ride is long forgotten and it's all about hanging out in the mountains! It's not too big and it's not too small it's just right! I highly recommend this cabin you will be glad you spend some time at this location and this property for sure.
My husband and I have been looking for something like this for awhile. We found the cabin ample large enough for our family! It was also very easy to find. I had questions and emailed Julie and got quick responses in return. We loved the Pigeon Forge area! I highly recommend This cabin and this area. Hope to be able to return again soon!
The cabin was advertised as suitable for 10. Maybe 6 adults and 4 children but definitely not 10 adults. Two of my adult children could not make it so it all worked out. There are two bedrooms (4 adults), a loft with a bunk bed with a double on bottom and a single on top (three kids), and a futon that folds out (maybe one more kids) and a very worn out and uncomfortable fold out sofa in the great room downstairs (two adults would not last the full week). My 22 year old daughter wound up sleeping with me and my wife in the bedroom.
The owner/manager was responsive when we called with a problem.
We had to go buy trash bags after the first kitchen bag was full (first day). A $3.00 box of trash bags would not be too much to expect. Most VRBO properties I have used before had a box of trash bags available.
The two large trash cans outside were not picked up during the week. We had 8 staying in the cabin and accumulated a lot of trash. The cans were overflowing when we left. We hoped this might mean we would see some bears, but no luck.
It worked out well with 4 adults one adult child and 3 grandkids. We may have opted for a larger cabin had the description of the accommodations been a bit more realistic. If my other son and daughter in law had been able to make it, I would not have been a happy camper!!!!!
We were told that we could not bring our Weiner dog because the properties prided themselves on being allergen free. But there were dust bunnies hanging from the ceiling joists.
Overall not an unpleasant vacation, but it could have been a bit more comfortable.
On a brighter note, I rode some rides at Dollywood with my grandkids that a 60 year old man should not be allowed to ride!!! Got my blood flowing!!!!
Arriving after sunset was not wise! Finding the cabin was a bit challenging; however, the description and pictures are true to reality. Opening the door after a long journey to a beautiful home complete with decorated Christmas tree was a treat!
Enjoyed our stay, would select this cabin again in the future.
Great home base for a busy trip! The location was great because it was far enough away from all the comotion of the Parkway, but close enough to get where you want to be for excursions/dining/etc. Nice view out back, and the cabin was super clean. Loved the game loft and the kitchen has pretty much everything you need. It is in a gated community, so there is a nice feeling of safety in that respect especially if traveling with children but it is not as private/isolated as other cabin rentals may be just as a reference to other renters who may be looking for that. Enjoyed your place and will make it a home base again on a future trip!
