Retreat from the social world to the great outdoors in this quaint 2 BR/1 BA cabin on a private pond minutes from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

Enjoy catch & release fishing or just watch the sunrise from the dock while drinking coffee on the scenic pond.

Online school or work? No problem.
* Unlimited high speed WiFi

And, since my hubby recently retired, we are providing free campfire wood!

Lo spazio
Hosts Ben & Jeanne invite you to their “lake house.” The cabin offers nearby outdoor recreation at Look Rock Tower on Foothills Parkway (4 miles away), Chilhowee Lake, and is located near the entrance to the #1 bike & sports-car destination in the US - the "Tail of the Dragon."

Need a breather from the hectic pace of life? Drop a line in the pond. Sit on the dock and soak in some rays. Read a novel while relaxing in a hammock by the water. Spend some downtime around the fire pit roasting S'Mores under the stars. Challenge each other to a a card game or an old-fashioned evening of board games. Sip hot chocolate or savor a cup of coffee on the deck. Take a leisurely paddle around the pond in our paddle boat. You know...RELAX!

If you’re feeling adventurous, hike some of the area Great Smoky Mountain National Park trails, go float tubing on Abrams Creek or the Little River in Townsend, explore a cave at Tuckaleechee Caverns, go horseback riding in Townsend or Wear’s Valley, drive through Cades Cove or up to Newfound Gap in the National Park. All of this is within an hour drive or less from our cabin. The cabin is located just a couple miles off Foothill Parkway and only moments from the western edge of the Smoky Mountain National Park.

If you want the hustle of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge or get worried if you're not around the corner from a Walmart, this isn't the place for you. But, if you long for peace, quiet, nature, and the outdoors, you're in the right place!

You will have exclusive use of the entire guest cabin as we only rent to one person/group at a time. The cabin sleeps up to 6 people. The master bedroom sleeps 2 in a queen bed. The second bedroom sleeps 2 in a double bed. A queen sleeper sofa in the main room offers a surprisingly comfortable air-filled mattress similar to a Sleep Number bed. A pack-and-play portable crib is available at no charge for guests with babies.

Enjoy cooking dinner in the well-furnished kitchen complete with full size appliances, plenty of nice cookware, dishes, a selection of spices, coffee, teas, sugar, powdered creamer, a Keurig machine and a full size drip coffee maker, cooking utensils. An outdoor charcoal grill is provided, but please pick up your own charcoal or lighter fluid.

The cabin bathroom includes a shower but does not have a tub. The shower is 6’4” high so could be a bit short for a taller person.

We happily welcome well-behaved pets. A nominal one-time $20 pet fee (not per day, just once for the entire stay) for indoor pets may be paid upon your arrival. ***Note that the national park does not permit pets on park trails. We also ask that you not leave a pet locked in a room while you are away as this is a source of great anxiety for a pet. In other properties we host & co-host, we have had one pet shred carpet and gouge the bedroom door, a couple gouge doors and walls trying to get out, and another shred a brand new expensive quilt. If you need to leave your pet while you’re out, a crate may provide a safer environment for them.

We ask that you include children over age 3 in your reservation guest count as we prepare beds, linens and schedule cleaning time at the end of your stay based upon the total number of guests including children. There is no charge for babies sleeping in a crib.

TECHNOLOGY
———————-
*High speed WiFi
*DirecTV
*No cell service
*Guests with WiFi calling on their cell phone will have cell service at the cabin
*Our internet service is fixed wireless broadband—internet over radio signal. The service is very good and generally quite reliable. However, since the signal is broadcast, if power is out at the broadcast tower or at the cabin, the internet may be down. This is infrequent and typically brief, but we want guests to be aware since there is no standard cell service at the cabin. There is a map inside the cabin that gives directions to the closest cell reception areas.

RATES:
—————
$65 cleaning fee
$6 ex person fee per night for over 4 guests (no charge for children under age 2).
**Airbnb service fees and state/county sales & lodging taxes (14.75%) are added to your reservation total. We do not receive the Airbnb fee.

CHECK IN & CHECK OUT
————————————
Check-out is 10 am
Check-in is anytime AFTER 4 pm

NO EARLY CHECK IN OR LATE CHECK OUT. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE.
***We’re not trying to be inflexible or rude. Our calendar is booked every day of the month. That means guests check out each morning and new guests check in each afternoon. The 6-hr window between guests simply does not allow us time to offer late check out or early check in. We are pushed to complete all laundry, cleaning & sanitizing needed due to COVID.

We suggest you arrange to arrive in daylight hours as it is much easier to find the cabin in daylight.

—————————————
WINTER WEATHER POLICY:
—————————————
If it happens to snow while you’re here, you are in for a beautiful treat! There’s just one itsy-bitsy problem...in snow, the cabin is accessible only in 4WD to an experienced mountain driver. January & February are the months most likely to have snow. If you book a stay for January or February, please message us and we’ll discuss the roads and your vehicle to help you decide whether you are comfortable planning a trip then. We DO NOT provide a refund for winter weather. Please don’t worry needlessly, though, because we have several 4WD and AWD vehicles and could shuttle you from the valley up to the cabin. We won’t let you get stranded on the mountain :)

ARE WE ALREADY BOOKED FOR YOUR VACATION DATES?
Not to worry--We own two other cabins in the area and co-host another cabin located in Townsend. “Away from It All in the Smokies” is atop a nearby mountain. It offers an extraordinary view of the Smoky Mountains and Chilhowee Lake. “Happy Bear Hideaway” is a 100 year old cabin located in Happy Valley near the Abrams Creek Campground entrance to the national park. We rescued and renovated this historic cabin. It’s ideal for bikers and sports car enthusiasts as it is on a paved road with easy access to US Hwy 129 (the world-famous “Tail of the Dragon”) and Foothills Pkwy. We co-host a very nice 2 BR/2 Bath cabin in Townsend. It’s also on a paved road and is convenient to several restaurants, a grocery store and to Cades Cove.

Dove ti troverai

Tallassee, Tennessee, Stati Uniti

The cabin is in the “Top of the World” community which is located on a section of Chilhowee Mountain more than 2,000 feet in elevation. Originally planned as a camping vacation community in the 1960's, it is home to one large mountain lake and several ponds. Like most Tennessee mountain communities it is an eclectic mix of long-term East Tennesseans, transplants and vacationers. A secluded trail into the national park (Gold Mine Trail) is about 1 mile away. Abrams Creek Campground, which has swimming, tubing and hiking, is about 7 miles away. Because of its isolation we have never seen more than 10 cars in this national park parking area. You can drive to an awesome view at Look Rock Tower on Foothills Parkway in ten minutes. The tower is accessed via a paved and fairly easy half-mile trail. From the tower you can see about half of the Smokies, Maryville, and the Cumberland Plateau. Visibility ranges from 30 to 100 miles. Like Abrams Creek, it is never crowded.

Distance to other nearby attractions:
US 129 / "Tail of the Dragon" - 20 minutes on the TN side
Foothills Parkway (scenic highway) - 10 minutes
Fishing/Kayaking on Chilhowee Lake - two boat launches/piers - 20 minutes away

Townsend - 30 minutes
Gatlinburg - 1 hr
Pigeon Forge - 50 minutes
Maryville - 25 minutes
Knoxville airport - 35 minutes

My husband, Ben & I love the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains. Together, we own Great Smoky Getaways, a licensed TN Vacation Lodging Service. We have been Airbnb hosts since 2012 (ancient in Airbnb world!) Together we own several cabins and co-host or manage others for several owners. We love what we do and like to keep our business at a manageable size so we can attend to individual guests personally. It’s a pleasure to work with a great team of specially selected professionals who help us keep each place clean and sanitized for our guests. Jeanne is happy to mentor individuals who are interested in starting their own Airbnb. Often, her services are available at no charge to new Airbnb hosts! Just send us a message and we can explain how that works. Ben is a retired pastor & I’m a part time real estate agent. Technically, I serve as the Designated Agent for Great Smoky Getaways, but really he & I work together. We share an interest in hiking, kayaking, fishing, traveling, music, and spending time with friends, family, and church members. We love to meet and greet guests and give insider tidbits on the "undiscovered side" of the Smokies.
