Yokie's Place, a beautiful 3-bedroom, 2-bath mountain home, is nestled in the Smoky Mountains in Laurel Valley, a gated mountain resort community that has a gorgeous 18-hole mountain golf course, swimming pool, clubhouse, and other amenities. My mother, Yokie Horton, was confined to a wheelchair, so when I had this home built for her, it was created to accommodate her special needs. My mother is with the Lord now, but this beautiful cabin constantly reminds me of her. So, if you have special needs like my mother, or if you just want to spend some time in the mountains in the down-home comfort of a spacious, beautifully appointed home, Yokie's Place will be perfect for you!
This home has a fully equipped kitchen for all your cooking needs, along with a covered front porch, a covered and screened-in back porch (a great place to enjoy your morning coffee while listening to the little stream at the bottom of the hill), propane barbecue grill, central heat and air, wood-burning fireplace, wide screen TV in the Living Room and TV's in 2 bedrooms, cable, wireless high-speed internet, and a washer and dryer. Linens and towels are provided, as well as bath soap and toilet paper. Also, as our guest at Yokie's Place, you will have FREE use of the Laurel Valley swimming pool.
The place was so nice everything was clean and well stocked. The 3 bedrooms were perfect. Everything that we needed was there, they had a great wheelchair accessible bathroom. The Olafson's were great people to work with we will definitely book this home again. If you need a place to stay this is a wonderful house. Again this house was very clean and had lots of room.
The house was beautifully comfortable with a great screened in porch that was oh so cook and refreshing. The house is all on one level which made it great for a young toddlers. The living room separates the 2 bedroom suite from the master suite which gave each family there private space. The kitchen worked nicely. There were also plenty of windows for ventilation along with nice air conditioning. I would definitely rent this house again.
Dianne was kind about a short-notice reservation and the process was easy and fast. As far as the house/cabin, was great! Has pots and pans and bakeware...everything you'd need. It's very comfy with the decorations and candles everywhere. One thing you don't see in the picture is the bathtub in the 2nd bathroom, which is perfect! Very lovely visit, will definitely visit again!
- Driveway is true, but unavoidable, as most of the houses on this street are up on a hill. Easiest thing is to back down out of it. :)
Thank you for sharing your home with my family!
We stayed for a week at Yorkie's Place in late July. The cabin itself is very charming with all the amenities we needed for the week. We especially liked having the washer and dryer to dry wet swimsuits and towels! The coffee maker is a little quirky to turn on, but we finally figured it out by setting the delay timer. The kitchen was well-equipped. The third bedroom bed (back of the house) was too soft and crooked for my taste, so we switched with my kids and they slept fine in it. I think my only complaint about the cabin was that it is dark. I enjoy having sun shine in the windows and the beautiful trees that surround the cabin block the sun. It did not bother my husband at all, so this is a matter of opinion.
Check in and check out was very easy. The owner was very responsive to messages. The pool was beautiful - we used it every day. For future visitors - the driveway is easy to miss because of the cluster of 3 mailboxes. Be ready to turn in the 2nd driveway and drive fast. We missed it (twice!) and had to back down the very steep hill.
It was a very nice area to visit. We went to Gatlinburg one day and that was enough for us. We enjoyed driving through Cades Cove and the Foothills Parkway which are both very nearby and provide beautiful views. We shopped and ate around Townsend and ziplined at Next to Heaven which is on the way to Pigeon Forge.
It was a wonderful week and I was sad to have to leave! Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.
We loved the cabin! It was the perfect size for my family of 6 (5 plus a crawling baby). The cabin was spotless and plenty roomy for all of us. Each room has its own TV so we weren't all stuck in one room all the time. The master bath shower was amazing! We did have to fight over it a little. =)
We cooked at least once every day. The kitchen was small but well equipped.
I did laundry before we left and the washer/dryer were fast. The cabin is located in a golf community with neighbors on both sides but no one in the front or back. The area is densely wooded and the cabin stayed shaded & dark during the day. We only used the pool one day and the view was absolutely breathtaking. The only negative was the driveway. My husband had no trouble with it, but it overwhelmed me. Overall, we loved our stay at Yokie's!
A seperate bike path runs along Hwy 321 that is perfect for the fitness minded or family bonding time. Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, Cades Cove and Gatlinburg are less than an hour away from our cabin!
