★ Location: Conveniently situated near Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Arts and Crafts, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Sevierville. You get the best of both worlds - access to attractions while also staying at a SECLUDED mountain cabin with plenty of amenities.
★ PROPERTY: Custom-built all-log cabin set on several wooded acres. WOODED views, an outdoor FIREPIT (firewood not provided). Located on a quiet residential street with just a few homes. Accessible by ALL PAVED roads and driveway, the cabin offers ample off-street parking for 4+ cars. With only 5 steps to the front door, your arrival and unpacking will be easy!
★ Inside Appalachian Escape Cabin: A thoughtful blend of traditional and modern - hand-hewn hemlock log walls, exposed beams, gleaming hardwood floors throughout, and rustic log furniture are all reminiscent of traditional craftsmanship. Designer pine cone motif light fixtures accent the all-log interior.
★ MAIN FLOOR: Floor-to-ceiling, stone-clad two-sided fireplace beckons you in to snuggle into one of the comfy sofas. Watch a movie of your favorite programming on a 48" HDTV (Satellite TV and Blu-Ray). Play a game or two on a rustic log pool table. Relive the fun days playing Pacman, Centipede, or any of the 48 classic 80s games on the upright arcade.
The fabulous and functional modern kitchen opens into the spacious dining area, so you can create your meal and entertain at the same time. Soft-close cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, custom chiseled-edge granite countertops, and a large island complete the look.
The dining room has a fireplace and farm-style table that seats 10 guests. The expansive kitchen island offers seating for 6, giving your group ample room to mingle or enjoy sit-down meals together.
Main floor King bedroom with a comfy memory foam mattress. The attached Jack-and-Jill bathroom has double vanity and a walk-in shower. Full-size washer and dryer (starter supply of detergent only).
★ SECOND FLOOR has another King bedroom with a memory foam mattress. Another large "family" bedroom on the second floor has two Queen beds (handmade by the owner) and two narrow twin daybeds. There is a TV with Satellite programming in every bedroom. A full bathroom with a walk-in shower and a separate jetted tub. Heated bathroom floors (winter) in both the main floor and upstairs bathrooms add a pleasant touch.
★ PORCHES: Drink your morning coffee out on the front deck in our rocking chairs. A picnic table is great for enjoying meals outside. After a full day of fun, hiking and adventures, relax in the 5-person hot tub.
★ YARD: Take in the serenity of the Smoky Mountains with wooded and seasonal mountain ridge views. A variety of native plants and trees grow in the cabin backyard - you will feel like you are already in the Smoky Mountains national park. See the flame azaleas and Pink Lady Slippers bloom in spring, followed by rhododendrons in the Summer. Rock away in the rocking chairs on the full-length, covered porch. Have a relaxing dinner on the porch or gather around the picnic table and charcoal grill in the yard. Roast marshmallows and make s 'mores by the backyard fire pit (firewood is not provided). Kids will love the "little log cabin" playhouse, built using the trees harvested on the property.
Whether your idea of a dream vacation is to "hide away" with family and friends or to enjoy the many area's activities and attractions, escape to Appalachian Escape and find it all! Most desirable local destinations such as Downtown Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Aquarium, zip lines, and more are all within easy driving distance.
★ WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT: We'd like you to know that Appalachian Escape Cabin is not a company-owned cookie-cutter rental but a privately owned vacation home. When we were building the cabin, we blended traditional and rustic elements with today's conveniences and amenities. We also added our unique personal touch by creating or restoring many of the furniture and décor pieces. We hope that you will cherish your time at Appalachian Escape as much as we do, and treat the cabin with the care and respect it deserves.
When you compare Appalachian Escape to other cabins of similar size, you will realize that you get more value and a better experience with us! Logcabinlivingalltheway !
★ IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND:
► This is a MOUNTAIN cabin so guests must expect to drive up some MOUNTAIN roads. While paved and accessible, 4WD or AWD vehicles and/or chains may be needed during winter IF snow/ice is present.
► Cabin features a metal roof and wood floors upstairs. You'll be able to hear the rain falling on the roof.
