LOCATION: Conveniently located near Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Arts and Crafts, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Sevierville, our vacation rental offers both accessibility to attractions and a secluded mountain cabin experience.

PROPERTY: Set on several wooded acres, our custom-built all-log cabin provides tranquil wooded views and features an outdoor fire pit (firewood not provided). Situated on a quiet residential street, the cabin offers easy access via paved roads and driveway, with ample off-street parking for 4+ cars.

INTERIOR: Appalachian Escape Cabin combines traditional and modern elements, with hand-hewn hemlock log walls, exposed beams, gleaming hardwood floors, and rustic log furniture. Designer pine cone motif light fixtures accentuate the all-log interior.

Main Floor: Cozy up by the stone-clad two-sided fireplace that extends from floor to ceiling. Enjoy entertainment on a smart 48" HDTV with Satellite TV, play games on a rustic log pool table, or relive the past with classic 80s arcade games.

The modern kitchen with soft-close cabinetry and stainless steel appliances connects seamlessly to the spacious dining area. Custom chiseled-edge granite countertops and a large island offer ample seating and prep space. The dining room features a fireplace and a farm-style table for 10 guests, with additional seating for 6 at the kitchen island.

Second Floor: Find a King bedroom with a memory foam mattress and another "family" bedroom with two Queen beds and two narrow twin daybeds. Each bedroom includes a smart TV with Satellite programming. A full bathroom with a walk-in shower and a separate jetted tub adds to the comfort. Winter months feature heated bathroom floors in both the main floor and upstairs bathrooms.

OUTDOORS: Enjoy the serenity of the Smoky Mountains with wooded and seasonal mountain ridge views. Relax on the full-length covered porch's rocking chairs, dine outside on the picnic table, or gather around the yard's charcoal grill and fire pit. A 5-person hot tub is perfect for unwinding after a day of adventures. Kids will love the "little log cabin" playhouse built from trees on the property.

Discover your dream vacation at Appalachian Escape Cabin, whether you seek relaxation or nearby attractions. Downtown Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, the Aquarium, zip lines, and more are easily accessible.

We are a couple who loves being "away from it all", the mountains, and the nature of East Tennessee and Western North Carolina. We are avid DIYers, and our cabin is our passion. You will be dealing directly with us, the owners! We know the area, we know our cabins, we love staying in them, and, admittedly, a little proud of them too. We hope that our guests will appreciate the cabin and make wonderful memories in the Smokies for years to come. Log cabin living all the way!
