About Donn & Margaret Tisch
Donn and Margaret Tisch are the owners/managers of Smoky Mountain Golden Cabins - where you rent from the owners! Smoky Mountain Golden Cabins specializes in secluded and private setting cabins in Wears Valley, Tn. Donn grew up on the farm and has tried his hand at several professions including working as a chef, managing a dry cleaning plant and an over the road trucker before finding his way into the vacation rental business. Margaret is originally from Ireland (part of why she so loves Wears Valley, it reminds her of home!) and she has called the United States her home since moving here in the 1980's. Margaret has owned a cleaning company in Florida, is widely known as the best mother in the whole world and has spent the last several years working in retail at one of the major box stores. Donn and Margaret have two grown son's. Our eldest son, Jerry is married to his wife Nikki and they have one son named Artie and daughter due in summer of 2019. Jerry and Nikki also own cabins they rent in Wears Valley. Our youngest son, Bobby, is soon to be moving to the area and joining us in management and maintenance of our cabins! It is our faith that directs who we are and what we believe. When it comes to our guests experience in one of our vacation properties, we hope to provide a setting of rest and peaceful relaxation. We believe that in this busy world all too often the first thing lost are those special times with family and friends. We hope guests will at some point during their stay, make a special memory that they will carry for their life time. Time is short and we are but only here for a little while - So take some time to come to the mountains, breath in that fresh mountain air and take in all the grandeur and beauty! Spend sometime on the porch in a rocker or relaxing in the hot tub and let the cares of the world pass by! At Smoky Mountain Golden Cabins we are in the business of making memories that last a life time!

Dear Nichole, Thank you for staying in our cabin, Golden View Lodge! We are happy to hear it worked well for your guests-- We look forward to having you back to stay again very soon! Thanks again, Donn and Margaret
Great view with great hosts!
Had a few minor requests during our stay here and the owner's were every responsive and accommodating. The house worked perfectly for our large family reunion. Even the kids (9,10, and 11) enjoyed themselves with the pool table, hot tub, hummingbird, and rabbit sightings. The bonfire was used nightly to tell stories and play games. You can't beat that view from the back deck. Good location to everything! There's just not enough time in a week to explore all that the Great Smoky Mountains have to offer! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Thank you for staying at our Golden View Lodge cabin. It was a pleasure having you and your guests stay, we hope you can return to stay again very soon. Thanks again, Donn and Margaret
Great fun for families
This property had great views and was the perfect location for our large family gathering. The beds were comfortable, there is plenty of seating and the kids all had a great time! Super close to all the fun, the drive up the mountain is pretty steep but once we got used to it we had no problem coming and going.
Thank you for staying and reviewing our cabin, Golden View Lodge. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back to stay again. Thanks again, Donn and Margaret
Could have been better
What you get and what you think you’re going to get are two different things
Dear Ron, I am sorry to hear your stay was not what you expected. I'd love to discuss it with you further to find out why you rated our cabin only 3 out of 5 stars. Please contact me directly, using the email or phone number off your confirmation, to discuss it. I look forward to hearing from you, Donn and Margaret
Great Lodge, great locationbeautiful scenery
Located close to the Smoky Mountains, but just outside of the busy towns of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. This lodge is a great place to base your Smoky Mountain adventures. It is very close to the Wears Valley entrance to the park, and we took advantage of that to go back and forth from the park and other locations. The view, the grounds, the facilities...All excellent and top-notch! Our party of 16 adults and children thoroughly enjoyed this cabin!
Thank you for staying at our cabin, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and look foward to having you back!
Best cabin I’ve ever stayed in!
Cabin was exceptionally clean and well kept. All facilities and amenities worked fine. Beds are ver comfortable. The view is breathtaking! Would strongly consider staying here again if we come back to this area.
Thank you for staying in our cabin, Golden View Lodge, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Certainly do look us up again if your coming back to the smokies, we'd love to have you back again.
Wears Valley is located next to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park along route 321 between Pigeon Forge and Townsend Tennessee and just over the mountain from Gatlinburg! It is location that makes Wears Valley the perfect vacation destination. Located only minutes from the 'city action' of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg but still retaining the peaceful rustic seclusion that makes Townsend so appealing but without the long drive. Wears Valley has it's own entrance into the Park off Lyons Springs Road through Metcaff Bottoms, and is centrally located between Cades Cove and Pigeon Forge, Townsend and Gatlinburg. When looking for the perfect mountain getaway setting you will find Wears Valley to be everything you wanted and more! Now you too know the Smoky Mountains best kept secret!
