Jeanne was an incredible hostess. We had to make some changes and she was very accomodating!
The property is in a lovely area on the West side of Smoky Mountains National Park and we enjoyed our stay very much!
Jeanne, the host, is awesome. We lost our way, almost an hour out stuck in traffic at night, with limited connectivity. Jeanne helped us with the directions, sent us pictures of map with highlighted landmarks and the sharp turns so we can easily navigate in dark.
The cabin has a rustic and secluded feel to it. Being close to a cemetery and in the wilderness, it has a ghostly feel to it. It is super clean and has everything you need: games, DVDs, a kitchen stocked with seasonings, bathrooms with towels, a first aid box, and other amenities. We enjoyed our stay and it was an important piece to our mountain adventure.
Great stay in this rustic cabin. Great hostess. Pet friendly which was nice. Fits a family. Has everything you need. Cutest play kitchen, games, DVDs etc. Very remote. Only thing we wished was that the fire pit had been clear of debris and usable. Will definitely recommend overall!
Family fun in comfort
Our family had a great time! We loved the use of recycled materials throughout the cabin. The kid's kitchen was a big favorite of our little one. The cabin was super clean and very comfy beds. Hosts are sweetly attentive and helpful. Shopping and attractions are a reasonable distance, but not close enough to be a distraction from hanging together as a family. We loved the hiking nearby!
