About the property

Perched on a mountainside and gently nestled within the trees, this log cabin provides great privacy, and a calming environment. From the front porch rocker, or while relaxing in the hot tub on the rear covered deck, one gets the feeling of being miles from town and deep within the mountains. However, this cabin is just minutes from all the popular amenities the Smokies provides and is situated approximately 1/2 mile from highway 66. No long curvy mountainous roads to endure on this getaway, only a well maintained roadway throughout the famous Echota resort area. Upon arrival, guests will find a well lit level parking area large enough for multiple vehicles.

From here, you will take a series of steps which leads to your peaceful getaway (elderly or those having difficulty climbing steps please take notice and ask questions if concerned).

I have uploaded a video tour of the cabin which can be found following the pictures in the photo section. This gives you an up and close encounter with the entire interior. The video also briefly displays the series of steps coming from the parking area. Hope you enjoy!

This 1 bedroom authentic log cabin with a loft sleeps 4, and is perfect for a romantic getaway or family retreat. The master bedroom includes a queen size log framed bed and a flat screen TV with a spacious bathroom that provides a jacuzzi tub, a shower, and a "new" washer and dryer.

You'll never have to leave the cabin to eat with the fully equipped kitchen that includes a custom-built bar height dining table. All you'll need to bring is your food! Don't forget those steaks if you want to use the gas grill on the back porch!

Cozy up in the living room by the original cast-iron stove, which is now gas powered, or watch one of your favorite games or movies on the 55" flat screen.

The upstairs loft boasts its own flat screen TV, a full sleeper sofa and games that make it the perfect area for kids to enjoy, although they'll probably be more excited about the free wi-fi that's provided.

The front porch is perfect for rocking in peace while sipping your morning coffee, and the privacy of the back porch makes soaking in the hot tub a completely tranquil experience.

No checking in at an office before arriving for your getaway. Once booking is complete and accepted, you will receive a guest specific code. This code will be your electronic key for the duration of your retreat.

Last but not least, your cabin is provided by an owner who cares about your stay, can be easily contacted, and wants you to love the cabin as much as I do.

About Michael Simpson

Although I am from Richmond, Ky., Tennessee and the Smoky Mountains is where my heart is. In July of this year, a dream became reality and I was able to purchase this great little cabin. Now, I only hope others will come visit and enjoy it as much as I do.

Michael Simpson purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Michael Simpson chose Sevierville

I have been coming to the Smoky Mountain region for many years as an avid hiker and outdoor lover. While browsing cabins which were for sale earlier this year, I found this property and completely fell in love.

What makes this cabin unique

This is an authentic "HONKA" log cabin. Although you feel like you are staying deep in the mountains, it is only a short drive to all attractions!

Great location, beautiful cabin, excellent owner.

  • 5 of 5

The location is great. Just far enough away from everything, yet close enough to get anywhere you want to go quickly. The cabin is beautiful. We loved the look on the inside. The owner is phenomenal. He communicated very well, and put a personal touch on every message. He was also very transparent. These are key to the consumer when operating a business. Thank you, Michael for a great place to stay for our quick get-away.

Great little cabin

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this little cabin. It's very close to anything you could want to do, and yet it feels like you are miles away from everything. Thank you Michael for letting us enjoy this little piece of the smokies.

Perfect small cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to this cabin. It had everything we needed for our 4 night stay. The fireplace and hot tub were a perfect ending to a busy day. The loft was great, the kids had their own little space to hang out. Michael answered any questions or concerns we had really quickly and even gave us tips to different hiking trails and ways to avoid traffic. We had a great trip and would rent from Michael again in the future. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!

Great Location, well-stocked, easy access to everything

  • 5 of 5

Great little cabin in a nice location close to all the attractions in the area. Everything worked perfectly and the Wi-Fi was nice not having to use data for 4 days. Hot tub was nice every evening after long days on your feet. Very peaceful, no traffic sounds whatsoever. The walk from the car to the front door is steep and I would not recommend for elderly people but we were fine. I would not hesitate to rent this cabin again on a future trip! We loved it!

Owner's Response: Thanks James for the kind words about the cabin. I’m so glad you all had a great stay. You are right about the steps. That’s why I attempted to take pics showing the series of steps to the porch. I’m glad they didn’t hinder your stay though. You were great guests and I hope you come back soon. Please stay in touch and have a safe drive back home.
