About Curtis Dupree

My wife and I visited friends on Chilhowee mountain 20 years ago and in 1998, we purchased our Little Get Away. Bitsy and I have raised 4 children and we vacationed at our cabin multiple times a year. We love our Tennessee Cabin and our kids have many fond memories of hiking, cycling, fishing, swimming, tubing, roasting marshmallows around the campfire while playing guitars and singing, or just sitting on the porch sipping a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate and enjoying the spectacular view. Our kids are now grown and raising families of there own, but they still love to spend time at the cabin. Bitsy and I would now like to offer others the ability to spend time with there families or spouses building wonderful memories as we have. The cabin sits on 5 attached acres. We own approximately 20 acres around our cabin. You can walk or drive 1 mile to Look Rock Tower and enjoy the view of the Great Smokey Mountains (550,000 acres) or look to the west and see the cities of Maryville and Knoxville. We love our mountain!

Why Curtis Dupree chose Tennessee

This cabin is secluded, right off the Foothills Parkway, but close enough that with a minimal drive you can visit Cades Cove a pioneer settlement from the 1800's, or shop at the quaint shops in Townsend, or spend a day at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, or spend a day seeing the sites in Gatlinburg. White Water Rafting is also close by in the pigeon river or tubing in the little Tennessee River is right in Townsend.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cabin was beautiful, comfortable and stocked with everything we needed. I really enjoyed our stay there. We plan on coming back in the near future.

A Treat for a Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights here with two of our grown kids and their spouses. What a wonderful place to relax after long and beautiful days spent hiking in the Smokies! The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was supplied and organized with anything we needed, and the porch was just perfect for sitting and rocking with a cup of coffee while enjoying the view. The 15 minute walk to Look Rock Tower was fun at dawn and dusk--the views are awesome! It took about an hour+ to get to the main Park entries but the drive was beautiful so it was not bad at all. We were not familiar with the Smokies before our trip but are so glad we found the "Sleepy Side;" the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area was much more congested and "tourist-y." Thank you, Curtis and Bitsy, for opening your cabin to our family; we had a great time!

Great location to see the eclipse!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week stay at the Dupree Cabin. It is both quaint and spacious. The wildlife welcomed us to the cabin and then respected our privacy. If you want a quiet place to spend quality time wiith your family and enjoy the natural treasures of the Smokey Mountains this is your place.

Wonderful Rental, Even Better People

  • 5 of 5

We drove our 8 month old baby here from Florida, and when we got 4 miles out, our transmission blew, leaving us stuck on the side of a mountain road with a tired, hungry baby waiting for a tow truck. We couldn't get in touch with any rental car companies because they were all closed on the weekend, but we were able to call Bitsy and she was so incredibly helpful! Our intention was to just ask her if she knew who in the area we could call for help, but she personally called around and sent one of her friends to pick us up and drive us to the cabin so we could put the baby to sleep. Then, since we didn't have a car to go get groceries, she called us for a list of things we would need and had her friend's daughter bring us food. Bitsy truly went above and beyond to make our vacation wonderful! On top of that, the house was so cute and very clean. The view is beautiful and its in such a great location. It feels very secluded but is less than 30 minutes from grocery stores, restaurants, malls, and more. Its also only around an hour from Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Cades Cove. We highly recommend staying here!

Perfect cabin in the woods!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin 6/17 for a week. We truly enjoyed our time there. Felt like home, comfortable and cozy. Our dogs loved the property, plenty of space. We love the area so much, we were looking for employment and a place to live. This cabin was perfect to come back to after a long day of interviews and house hunting.

We did find jobs, got engaged (On the Foothills Parkway) and bought a new home. All in 3 days!!!There was something special about that cabin. Everything we were looking for on our mission to move... Happened!!! Every time we got back to the cabin, something fell into place for our move! We felt like someone was looking over us. Maybe it was being a bit closer heaven ... Maybe it was just luck.

The owners are truly wonderful and caring people. They made sure that everything was perfect. If we needed anything, they were there to help.

If you are looking for a place to get away from the hussle and craziness, this is the perfect place. So peaceful and quiet. Wildlife is all around the place as it is in the woods.

Please look at this cabin if you want to escape the crowds and reconnect with yourself, family or nature.

Even though we are moving to area, we have already discussed staying here for another vacation. It's that peaceful and calming of a place.

Thanks for everything!!!

Tom, Jillian and the girls
