About Kevin & Pip Maas

My name is Kevin Maas . I am the son of a highy decorated Marine Corps fighter pilot ace in WWII and Korea. I was born in Cherry Point , NC and settled in Fredericksburg, Virginia in the late 1960's. After retiring from the retail corporate world after 38 years, my wife Pip and I decided to invest in one of our favorite places in the entire United States. We both have been coming to this area for years to enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains and have met many good friends here in East Tennessee .

We purchased our first cabin' Ambleside of The Smokys '( property # 434610 ) and soon after came upon this new property. Windermere is walking distance from Ambleside ( 300 yards ) which gives the traveller options if they would need to have 2 cabins for larger groups.

My wife Pip who is from the United Kingdom and our two dogs...Sasha & Major enjoy traveling and appreciate value for accomodations. We have provided a very comfortable and relaxing cabin for you to visit, and enjoy.The cabin has 2 bedrooms with queen size beds and 2 full baths. Wood burning fireplace, fully functional kitchen , Wifi through out cabin, as well as HDTV in all rooms 42' in living area, and 22' in bedrooms. ceiling fans in all rooms, 4 person hot tub with privacy blinds on a large wrap around deck, ADT security system, and tastefully decorated........not to mention the amenities that the resort offers : pool, boat ramp, boat docks, walking trail, etc etc

Kevin & Pip Maas purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Kevin & Pip Maas chose Sevierville

This area of East Tennessee offers something for everyone of all ages. Dollywood theme park only 15 miles from cabin as well as the other attractions in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is the most highly visited National Park in the entire United States, so if you enjoy the great outdoors, you have planned a trip to the right place. The pace of East Tennesse is so relaxing which helps you truly get back to nature and enjoy being with your loved ones .

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is VERY secluded , private and cozy. If the weather is nice, sit outside and take in the wooded view that Windermere offers , or if you stay inside there is the wood burning fire place ( firewood NOT provided ) for you to curl up in front of and relax.........and don't forget the hot tub that awaits you during any season !

WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent from January 3rd to March 30th at Windermere! What a great time we had. This cabin is very clean and has everything you would need for your stay.The fireplace was so cozy on the cool days/nights. and the hot tub was an extra touch. We would like to thank Kevin and Pip for renting it to us throughout the winter months as we are from New York state and it kept us out of the snow! There is a nice paved walking trail right behind the cabin and my dogs and I enjoyed our walks every day. We both joined the Sevierville Community Center as I took a yoga class and my friend enjoyed the exercise room. We made many friends while there.We hope to go again in 2018!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time to share your comments I wish you would have contacted me so that I could have remedied your concerns about the hot tub temperature which would have been easily fixed by increasing the temperature control , and also the stove which from time to time the electrical connection under the stove top become unconnected Both of these could have been taken care of with a telephone call , however did not hear about these during stay ... only afterwards through this review Sorry you were a bit disappointed

Cleanliness

  • 3 of 5

Furniture was dusty, shower curtain liner was moldy (both BR’s), toilets had rings, air return had dust balls sticking out. Nice cabin, but needs a good cleaning.

Owner's Response: I apologize if the cabin was not up to your standards. I have forwarded your concerns to my housekeeper to follow up on. I just returned from spending 4 nights in my cabin Windermere ( 11-10-17 to 11-14-17) and found the cabin to be in excellent shape and did not notice that the concerns you pointed out in your review to be the case. I do value my guests comments , and always want to make sure the guests are comfortable in a clean , cozy cabin. I hope you will look to return in the near future , and I look to assist you again. Please accept my apologizes

Beautiful cabin!! Very clean!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here! It was hard to leave. The cabin was very clean and well kept. It was stocked with pretty much all of the essentials we needed. The owners really thought of everything. I loved how they left a book with advice on places to eat. They even left some menus on the fridge. The bed and couches were very comfortable. We loved the hot tub and enjoyed sitting on the deck and grilling while enjoying the beautiful scenery. The paved path behind the cabin was a nice touch as well. We will definitely be back!
