Over the past couple of years we have gained insight from our guests, friends, and family as to what exactly makes the cabin so special to them. We decided to list them for you!
1. Large Family Space(Unlike many cabin rentals we do not overcrowd our spaces. We host our own families here and have thoughtfully laid out the interior for larger group sizes. You and your family will have plenty of space to spread out and even disappear to a quiet place on the property when needed).
2. The Views(Phenomenal sunrises, quirky sunsets, all season views of Waterrock Knob, Newfound Gap and Great Smoky Mountains National Park)
3. The Decor(My wife and I make all of the art, photography, and many of the furniture pieces ourselves. We want everything to be local, crafty, and add to our simple and relaxing goals for the cabin. We love the Smoky Mountains and we want to share that with all of our guests)!
4. Seclusion((1.5 miles up a gravel road gets you a very secluded escape from normal life! After all, isn’t that the point? The peaceful streams on both sides provide a nice ambient background noise on the porch or decks as well).
We would love to host you and your family and we know you will appreciate the experience we can provide to you! Let us know if there any questions at all we can answer!
