Location: Gatlinburg, Tennessee
It’s love at first sight when guests arrive at Raven’s Nest, a gorgeous A-frame log cabin nestled quietly in the lush Smoky Mountain forestry of Gatlinburg. Three cozy bedrooms with serene wooded views provide up to 6 guests comfortable spaces to unwind and rest after exciting days of skiing at Ober Gatlinburg (you can see Gatlinburg’s Aerial Tramway overhead from the deck) shopping and dining in downtown, and thrilling Ripley’s attractions along the Parkway.
Mountain charm and modern comforts come together in the modern and comfortable interior design that allows you to enjoy the simplistic beauty of natural wood and stone elements while staying connected to all the modern luxuries like wireless internet and Smart TVs. Perfect for families, vacationing couples, and small wedding party weekends, The Raven’s Nest provides guests with foosball, movies, and ample space to spread out and relax on the large leather sectional by the stacked-stone fireplace.
Located within Chalet Village, guests to The Raven’s Nest will also have access to 3 clubhouses boasting amenities such as game tables and swimming pools! After playing a few games of tennis on the community courts or shopping for souvenirs in the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, return to your peaceful retreat to soak in the bubbling waters of the outdoor hot tub. Sip on freshly brewed coffee on the front porch while the soothing sounds of rustling leaves in the soft mountain breezes allows you to savor every moment of your mornings before preparing a hearty breakfast in the fully loaded kitchen.
Whether you are looking for your perfect Gatlinburg chalet for a girls’ trip to the mountains or need the allure of this amenity-packed cabin located in the beautiful Chalet Village to inspire a couples’ getaway without the kids, it’s time to start planning your dream Smoky Mountain getaway in Raven’s Nest.
High vaulted ceilings, serene forest views resting through the large windows, an exquisite stacked-stone fireplace, and plush furnishings to sink into…guests may not make it past the living room for the first hour upon arrival! Reconnect with friends while seated around the coffee table, sipping on local wine from the Rocky Top Wine Trail, and playing board games conveniently supplied in the cabin.
Cozy up with the kids at night while a warm fire crackles in the wood-burning fireplace and the movie they picked out plays on the large smart flatscreen TV above the mantel using your personal Netflix, Hulu, or other streaming services. Pull your feet up on the leather sofa and watch your favorite midday shows before falling asleep for a dreamy nap in the soft daylight drifting in through the large windowed wall.
Spotlights accent the gorgeous natural wood interiors complemented by charming white appliances in the inviting fully loaded kitchen that boasts tools, appliances, and serving utensils for your stay in The Raven’s Nest. Settle onto one of the 4 stools at the breakfast bar before being served pancakes hot off the skillet or pouring yourself a fresh cup of joe from the coffeemaker to enjoy while perusing through social media on your connected device.
Need a quick snack after everyone has gone to bed? Snag those leftovers in the refrigerator and let the microwave heat up your food to curb those midnight cravings. Enjoy beautiful mountain views while rinsing off those plates after dinner and placing them in the dishwasher to take care of most of the cleaning. With a 4-slice toaster, it’s easy to make a quick on-the-go breakfast before heading to Cades Cove to catch grazing wildlife in the early day among the breathtaking valley and mountain views.
No need to leave The Raven’s Nest for a great dining atmosphere; share drinks, home-cooked meals, and laughs around the 6-chair wood dining set with gorgeous wooded views resting through the nearby large windows. Warm spotlights illuminate your dining area to complement the warm personal connections enjoyed over a family dinner without the normal distractions of home.
Trade terrifying and hilarious stories from your visit to the Gatlinburg Mysterious Mansion before clearing the table and setting up your new favorite board games from home or one of the cabin’s. Let laughter fill the high vaulted ceiling late into the night while spending time with friends and wait until yawns finally usher everyone off to the comfort of their beds. Need more dining space? The breakfast bar has stools for more guests!
On the entry level, 2 charming bedrooms boast homey atmospheres and forest views along with ample closet and dresser space to unpack suitcases to make guests feel even more at home. The entry level bedrooms share a pristine, white-tiled bathroom resting only footsteps away from bedroom doors for guests’ convenience.
In the loft, crawl under the cozy quilted covers of the king-size bed and unwind in the evenings with some late-night TV on the bedroom flatscreen TV before drifting off into restful nights of sleep. The master suite lends its guests a private deck and outdoor seating for 2, perfect for sipping on warm cups of coffee and watching the birds flutter about the forestry.
Kids will love having their own flatscreen for watching movies while seated in the comfy bean bag chairs in the open-air loft. Break out the folding table for the little ones and set up miniature games of air hockey and pool during in-cabin days while parents play Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit around the dining table. Pick out a movie from the DVD library or let the kids watch their favorites from home in the loft with a big bowl of popcorn freshly popped in the microwave. Adults will find a peaceful spot to sink into a bean-bag chair and enjoy the gorgeous wooded views through the large windows across the open-air balcony while putting together a puzzle on the fold-out table.
The spacious porch lends guests front-row seats to the many beautiful phases of the Smoky Mountains with bright green foliage during spring and summer, a kaleidoscope of warm reds, oranges, and yellows during fall, and serene mountain views through leafless trees in winter. While the deck provides plenty of seating, including an old, refurbished ski-lift bench, there is also room to play your favorite outdoor games from home like cornhole and ladders. On quiet mornings, sit with the stacked-stone and windowed wall behind you and let the tranquility of the forests soothe your soul. Oh, and don’t forget to wave to the people on the Aerial Tramway riding overhead!
Need a physical kind of soothing after your scenic hike to Alum Cave or Abrams Falls? Enjoy the therapeutic jets of the outdoor hot tub while the sun quietly peeks through the trees. During fun cabin cookouts, guests can enjoy glasses of their favorite beer from their Smoky Mountain Brewery growlers while burgers and hot dogs sizzle on the charcoal grill and the Ober Gatlinburg Aerial Tramway glides up to the top of Mt. Harrison nearby.

"We had a wonderful weekend in Gatlinburg and the cabin, The Raven's Nest was great! It has an awesome view and is very well stocked. After long busy days, relaxing in the hot tub was heaven. It was such a hoot to be up so high to be able to wave to the people on the tram as they pass right past us! And you can see the ski slopes! The cabin is a great value and well equipped with a fireplace, wood, tv, stereo, kitchen appliances, foosball table, access…"

"We stayed in The Raven's Nest in November. The cabin was clean, and we had no problems during our stay. Loved the private location! It is in the woods but has a terrific mountain view, and the tram passing so closely was really cool. We found it very convenient that it is literally right at Ober Gatlinburg so you can hitch the tram to downtown. We are definitely planning on returning to this cabin. This was the third consecutive year we have been in a Cabins for You cabin and have not been disappointed yet! We are customers for keeps!"
