About Peggy Jenkins

Our Family lives approximately 2 hours from Rocky Top Lodge and are very active owners, meaning that we visit often to keep everything is A+ condition. After vacationing in the beautiful Smokey Mountains for many years, we decided to purchase our own cabin in 2011. It is truly our 2nd home and is decorated to feel like home. You will find my Southern Bell's (wife's) taste in every detail from the small decorations to large family table in the dining room. Her love and gentleness are what Rocky Top is all about. You'll experience it the moment you walk in the front door.

We are both Tennesseans; grew up in and raised our family in Tennessee. We love this part of the world and the Smoky Mountains are where we go for fun and relaxation. Rocky Top shows the Southern Country Charm that we grew up around and is a great example of the gentleness you would expect in the Appalachian Mountains. Come, visit, experience the way we live.

Peggy Jenkins purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Peggy Jenkins chose Tennessee

After visiting dozens of cabins and properties, we new Rocky Top was the one we wanted the minute we walked through the front door. As we walked through the front door, the beauty of the mountains came bursting through the glass wall on the opposite side of the room. The view was breath taking. Immediately, my wife said, 'this is the one!' It is truly the Crown on top of the mountain. You can touch the stars on a bright clear night and see dozens of mountains on a clear day. It is truly a Million Dollar View....

What makes this cabin unique

Read the reviews, our renters say it better than we can. See our video and look at our pictures. If you still have questions, call us. BTW, Have your groceries delivered prior to your check-in...anything you might need. This is less than 2 miles from our lodge. Need something else...Call us, we'll gladly make special arrangements to make this the best vacation ever.

Great Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I came to Rocky Top Lodge with 2 other couples, one couple with a 2 year old and the other with a 4 year old and 8 year old. We came up for a long weekend for the wives to run the Great Smoky Mountains Half Marathon.

Rocky Top Lodge is amazing! The location is great, the cabin is great, and it is stocked with practically anything you could need. The view is spectacular. I am so jealous of the huge kitchen. The hot tub is very nice and was especially good for the ladies after the 1/2. There is plenty of space so that nobody was ever on top of anybody else, and the large table was great for all of us to eat together. There were plenty of toys that the little kids enjoyed, especially the rocking horses, and the big kids enjoyed the pool table and the grill.

The surrounding areas are really beautiful too and I wish we had had more time to explore. And if you are in the area, you MUST eat at Elvira's Café. We all had brunch there before heading back home and it was fantastic. We also had lunch one day at the Black Bear Café which is also very good.

There is a minor issue with the large coffee pot, some sort of problem where it spills everywhere when you try to pour from it - though that did not stop us from getting caffeinated!

The only major issue is the deck. It really needs some repair. Some places have previously been repaired, but there are still several nail pops and loose and split boards. Most of these are around the hot tub, which is where you are most likely to be barefoot. I would NOT recommend going barefoot on the deck, especially at night. I seriously injured my foot the night before the race - luckily I was not there to run and this did not happen to one of the ladies or the kids. There are many signs around the cabin with the rules and checkout procedures and instructions on how to work things - which I thoroughly appreciate being a detailed person myself. Until the deck is fully repaired I would recommend an additional sign be added warning guests to wear shoes on the deck. I would have given a 5 star review, even with the deck issues, if my foot wasn't still killing me.

All in all it was a wonderful weekend and we are already talking about returning to the same cabin for next year's half marathon!

Couples week-end Trip

  • 5 of 5

We were a group that consisted of 4 couples and spent two nights at this beautiful chalet! The chalet is very large and consists of 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. All of the bedrooms are a very good size with plenty of room. The kitchen is huge and is well equipped with plenty of pots, pans, casserole dishes, utensils, etc so you can cook anything with the numerous items available. There are numerous plates, cups, bowls, and glasses. The back deck is very large and has very nice outdoor furniture, a swing, small table for outdoor eating, and a gas grill. The view is one of the best! I would definitely stay here again as we have stayed in numerous cabins/chalets in the Gatlinburg area for many years and this was one of the nicest chalets we have stayed in. Townsend is a short three mile drive away if you prefer to go out for dinner. There are numerous items available for children as well and a game room with pool table upstairs. This is the place to stay if you want to be in the Townsend/Wears Valley area.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! The home was so spacious, with a wonderful, well equipped kitchen. The view of the mountains was amazing and so beautiful to wake up to every morning. We would definitely stay here again! The whole family loved it! We had 2 babies along on the trip and the house worked perfectly with the baby beds and high chairs.

We have stayed in several rental homes in various states and this one ranks as one of the very best! Lots of room and my daughter loved the kitchen. We were eating dinner one evening and a big black bear walked through the yard. That caused a lot of excitement as you just don't see that in the corn fields of Iowa !! The owners are very involved and she answered any questions in a very short time. My family wants to know when we can go back.

Stay at Rocky Top Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We must say, that when our kids/grandkids first set foot into Rocky Top Lodge, their words were............"WOW, this is HUGE"! Yes, Rocky Top Lodge provided ample room & more for our family of 11. The kitchen is large & well furnished with a lot of counter space.The deck was wonderful, more than enough to hold all 11 of us. The hot tub was used every nite!!! The living room was large & comfortable & the bedrooms spacious! Rocky Top Lodge is close to The Great Smoky Mtns, the view of the "Smokies" from the deck & bedroom windows is just wonderful; the IGA grocery store in Townsend, though small, provided everything that we needed for food stuffs & their "fried chicken" picnic is just great! We went horseback riding at Davy Crockett Stables, fly fishing in the Smokies, Ziplining at Wear Valley Zip Lines, White Water Rafting at Smoky Mountain Outdoors; we hiked the Appalachian Trail @ Newfound Gap; we saw bear(s), coyote & deer at Cades Cove Loop drive in the evening; the Lumberjack Feud in Pigeon Forge was great (the food was good & plenty of it). Rocky Top Lodge was exactly as stated on the VRBO listing; Roger & Peggy Jenkins are kind people & take care of their guests!! We had a great week at Rocky Top Lodge & would heartily recommend it!!
