About Patty

We love the Smoky Mountains and have always dreamed of owning a home here. Our dream came true in June, 2012, and we're looking forward to sharing our knowledge of the park and our home with our guests.

For the past 20+ years, we have escaped our hectic lives in Chicago to hike and backpack the beautiful trails in the Smokies. We were engaged on the top of Mt. LeConte, and both of children had their first (of many) backpacking adventures here in the Park. We've hiked most of the trails, including much of the famous Appalacian Trail. We still live in Chicago but once the kids are off to college, our next dream will be call Tennessee our home.

Patty purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Patty chose Tennessee

We fell in love with this home from the moment that we saw it. We love the tranquility of the property yet its convenience to the nearby attractions. We love being soooo close to the National Park. We love that the home is unique and handcrafted with spaces for everyone to relax and play. It's our place to unwind when we need it and, most importantly, make wonderful memories with our kiddos and friends. We hope that you love it as much as do!

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is beautifully handcrafted. It was build to last forever in this peaceful setting. The rooms are spacious with high-end finishes and the community is beautiful. Three Little Birds was build to be 'a home'. We absolutely love our home, and hope that you will treasure it as we go.

Luxury meets Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility surrounds this stunning log cabin. I felt instantly submerged in luxury by the hospitality of the owner of Three Little Birds Cabin. ALL amenities were thought of and available; including recommendations for activities, food, etc nearby.

Thank you TLBC for taking care of everything!

Consistent with the Amazing Reviews!

  • 5 of 5

The other reviewers are indeed not exaggerating. Three little birds is a wonderful cozy cabin, with comfortable beds, a well stocked kitchen, a well stocked garage of all games/toys/bikes, a wonderful master suite, and a peaceful setting. We loved our time here. Best of all, Patty is a wonderful tour guide of the area and helped us find restaurants specific to our taste (farm to table!), and hikes suitable for our family - even ones that aren't listed on the maps. She responded quickly to all of our questions and is a fabulous owner as you can see. We loved that she provided so many personal suggestions and put SO MUCH thought into making their home extremely user friendly and comfy.

Have a wonderful summer!!

Our perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The cabin was breathtaking. I have never gone somewhere where the comforts of home was present in every room. You can tell how much time was spent on comforts and coziness without missing a beat. When Patty and Chris say, they have everything covered they mean it! The porch was my dream porch, as soon as we pulled up all the stress was gone. The screened in porch was just as comfortable. Plenty of room for outside games. The creeks were just beautiful to walk along & fish. All the natural parks were very close and easy to get to. We found the mom & pop shops and diners were the best. We will definitely be back. Thank you for sharing your home.

Beautiful cabin, not fond of the area

  • 3 of 5

Patty you were more than kind to deal w/ and your cabin was perfect. You really did think of everything! I will say a lot of the games were missing pieces, and almost all of the garage toys for outside were absent or broke. But I'm sure it's hard to keep inventory on that. Otherwise, the cabin itself was perfect. The location on the other hand I would not chose to stay here again. Beyond the fact that you truly leave civilization to get out to your place, the actual gated community of 4 or 5 houses that you sit in , is not inviting. From the large billboard sign posted outside the gates declaring: We are Christians, we believe in marriage is man to woman, blah, blah, blah.) For someone who shares different beliefs, this wasn't my cup of tea. We also had the chance to meet the man across the street ( who perhaps is just kind , but came across creepy.) A few minutes into our conversation asked if my young teenage daughter and friend like cemetery's? Asked me then if I minded if he took them for a walk to one. Of course I said no. He also told me he has only lived there for 3 months but is selling because he didn't care for neighbors in your little gated community. Could it have been his neighbor with the conferate flag at driveway entrance, or next to him w/ a do not enter sign and a sign of a smiling emoji w/ a bullet through his head and blood spilling out? Whatever the case, between the run down trailer like homes prior to entrance and the creepy neighbors; my family did not feel safe at your cabin. If your cabin sat alone in a different area, I would have given it 5 stars, but for these reasons I simply cannot. Thank you for allowing us to rent your cabin and for your kindness in trying to make our vacation a memorable one.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you liked the cabin. We go through the games quarterly to restock where needed or weed out unusable toys; we’re sorry you had to find them in need of attention before we got to them. We’re sorry to hear you don’t like the quiet location removed from the hustle of Gatlinburg; most of our guests appreciate that and the fact we are so close to a park entrance with hiking trails. Our location is so much better than most properties around Gatlinburg that over 50% of our guests are repeat guests. The sign you mention isn’t visible from the cabin and isn’t on our property, so there isn’t much we can do about it. It’s simply NOT our sign and has nothing to do with our cabin. Our neighbors across the street are just kind and we’re sorry you had a misunderstanding with them. Although there are a few trailers a couple of blocks away, all the homes in our community are beautiful custom log cabins and the residents in our surrounding community are nice people and haven’t bothered anyone. I feel it is unfair to rate us 3 stars while saying our cabin was perfect and we thought of everything. We have had almost entirely 5 star reviews until this one. We have also been fortunate to have fabulous guests with the exception of you and one other. Not because of your bad review of things blocks away or out of our control, but because of the horrible care you took of our cabin. Our cleaning crew complained and charged us extra due to the mess you left.

Nature's complete retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Nestled in the TN hills about 5 minutes from nature's playground of the National Forest and loaded with every modern convenience you would need! You can tell they truly want their guests to find the love for the area that they have, as seen in all the details and care taken of the cabin. Our family of 5 had more than enough space and the cabin is VERY clean. Despite the temps we hiked everyday, zip lined, white water rafted, visited Gaitlinburg (about 20 minutes drive), visited Carvers for some local jellies/ syrup, played games in the cabin and relaxed in the hot tub. We would definitely rent again and cannot wait to come back when it is a little warmer to enjoy all the area has to offer to its fullest capacity.

Absolutely beautiful! What a wonderful trip.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about Patty & the house. She was so quick and responsive anytime we needed anything. The house was absolutely breathtaking. It was fully equipped with anything we needed! The house was close enough to town, but far enough away that we didn't fight traffic. There was always so much to do between shopping, games provided, and the hot tub. Checkers was a huge hit for our group. We are so glad we got the opportunity to stay here. It was more than we ever imagined.

Three Little Birds is located within 5 minutes of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park entrance. We are 15 minutes away from white water rafting and ziplining, and just an easy 25 minutes from Gatlinburg. Go antiquing and visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC just 1 hour away. The house is set in a tranquil wooded setting surrounded by nature. No hills to climb or crazy roads to get to our house.
