With all the charm of a sweet cottage in the hills, this rental will lead you to enjoy nature, enjoy peace and quiet, and re-center yourself from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

It’s no secret that a little escape away from the norm—especially in a place as breathtakingly beautiful as the Smoky Mountains—can truly restore your soul. 

Living Room
Relax your feet as you take a seat on the comfortable couch or on one of two comfortable chairs. The coffee table is a perfect place to set your book and a cup of coffee. A large flatscreen TV hangs above the lovely stone fireplace, one of the cabin’s most attractive features. In cooler months, ignite a fire in the fireplace to make this cabin a picture-perfect experience. You might grab a blanket and cozy up on the couch while watching a movie, or let your cares drift away as you escape into a good book. Whatever you desire, Restores My Soul is sure to be a charming setting.

As you step into the cabin, you’ll notice the kitchen area, complete with a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, and microwave. No matter what kind of meal you are interested in whipping up during your stay—be it quick and simple or something a little more elaborate—you can find the cooking appliances needed to make you feel like you’re right at home in your kitchen. And if you would appreciate skipping the grocery store, you can easily plan to have a full breakfast, picnic, or dinner for 2 stocked and ready to go in your refrigerator upon arrival. All you’ll have to do is cook up the goods in your fully equipped kitchen. Check out all our options for cabin add-ons, including meals, gift baskets, and more.

For instance, our Mountain Breakfast includes a dozen eggs, bacon, pancake mix and syrup, coffee, filters and condiments, butter, milk, orange juice, banana muffins, and assorted fruit. If you’re traveling alone, this could last you the weekend if you save up the leftovers. Or choose a Smoky Mountain Picnic package and have a stocked pantry waiting for your arrival. It’s perfect for a day in the mountains or an evening in front of the fire. It will include assorted cookies, potato chips, Smoky Mountain taffy, sparkling cider, two wine glasses, summer sausage, crackers, a loaf of bread, mayonnaise, mustard, a snack tray, two plates with napkins and plastic cutlery, assorted fruit, and potato and macaroni salad, along with a meat and cheese tray of turkey, roast beef, and ham, American and Swiss cheese, tomato, and lettuce. This meal could provide enough for you and a guest to enjoy. 

Dining Area
Have a seat at this 2-person table for breakfast, reading, or a nice dinner. Enjoy watching the morning news from the table as you sip your coffee or have a nice breakfast, or break out a crossword puzzle, a board game, or a deck of cards for a little bit of easy fun. Or, have a seat with your laptop and read up on our Cabins for YOU blog to be sure you’re in the know. We’ve got you covered when it comes to fun in the Smokies. 

When it’s time to rest, the comfortable queen-size bed with wall-mounted night lamps on both sides will be a perfect place. Just steps away from the living room, this area will give you a cozy space for sleeping. Off the bedroom, you’ll find a convenient full bath. You can even see the television from here, or turn off all the noise and notice the beauty outside your window. Take time to relax and recharge with a full night of restful sleep in your mountain cabin, and wake up to a new day feeling refreshed. 

Outdoor Spaces
Have a seat on the garden bench in front of the cabin and watch the stream roll past you. You might see wildlife like deer or turkeys, or just listen to the birds chirping. Around the side of the cabin, a picnic table and grill are ready for your use. Spend days unwinding and evenings enjoying outdoor meals at your cozy cabin in the woods.

Reviews for Restores My Soul

  • "We absolutely loved this cabin! The creek right outside the door was amazing. The road is close, but not too busy, and the sound of the creek really drowns out the cars. Small cabin, but cozy. Lots of dishes, pretty much have everything you would need. Our only issue was our key code would not work and we had to call and have it reset. The hot tub was incredible. Absolutely loved everything about our stay and can't wait to go again!"

      Sarah, we are pleased to hear that you and your husband had a much needed relaxing getaway! Thank you for sharing your experience! We cannot wait to host you again in the future.

  • "This cabin was very small but very nice. They say you can fit 4 people in there but if you pull the couch out there wouldn't be any room to walk around at all so I will give you a heads up on that. The shower is very tight and if you are over 250 pounds you're not fitting. I am letting them know along with you that there are know skillets except for a very tiny one to cook in. There are 3 pots to cook in but if you want to fry something all you have is a very tiny cast iron skillet. Hopefully they will fix that. The good thing is that you are right by a stream that is very pretty and once inside the cabin you can't really hear the traffic from the road which seems to be the backway from town to town. It was good enough for me and my husband and if you need anything the lady that owns it lives right up the hill and is very nice. I would definitely stay there again."

      We're pleased to hear you had a pleasant stay at Restores My Soul! We appreciate your honest feedback, and look forward to hosting you again in the future!

  • "We stayed at restore your soul and it did just that. We arrived a little early so we went into town for a couple hours. When we got to the cabin we were very tired and our pin code did not work. Called and they were able to have us in the cabin in under 5 min. The cabin was very clean. The hot tub was ready to go with new water. We had a very nice time. We even decided to stay an extra day. When we called to asked it was really easy to get a hold of the office and booking the extra day was so quick and easy. We will be back."

  • "What a wonderful vacation! We could really tell the owner of the cabins took a lot of pride in the quality of their cabins and amenities. We did have one minor issue, as the hot water heater started to go out. However, Nicole at Cabins for You took care of the issue quickly. Even though the area was very busy, (all cabins rented!), our water heater was fixed in just a couple of hours, and then completely replaced within a couple of days! There were no other issues, and all the other amenities (especially the hot tub) were perfect. We are already looking forward to our next vacation!"

  • "My husband and I stayed at the Restores my Soul cabin for our honeymoon. Let me begin by saying I highly recommend this cabin for honeymooners! It is a beautiful one room cabin that has a gorgeous porch with string lights, rocking chairs, and a hot tub! The porch faces a creek and covered bridge with lights that made me feel like I was in a Hallmark movie. The inside of the cabin has a cozy living room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom space. The cabin owners made sure the place was spotless and left us a gift bag full of cleaning supply goodies and some candy/a Bible verse book mark. I can't wait to book this cabin again!"


  • "Definitely restores the soul! The cabin and surrounding area was very clean. The bed and pillows were so comfortable. The cabin had everything we needed for our stay. The hot tub was fabulous! We enjoyed the nature trail in the community. The creek running through made everything so peaceful. There was no issues whatsoever with the cabin during our stay. I will definitely stay again"

  • "We rented this for our honeymoon and it was amazing the cabin was perfect for us. The scenery around it was beautiful. Would definitely recommend"

  • "Restore My Soul is a quaint, cute place for a couple get away. It was very clean and comfortable. The location is ok as it is off a busy highway but right on creek. All activities are within minutes to enjoy and return back to enjoy the porch in the evening and hot tub. We really enjoyed our stay despite rainy weather conditions."

  • "Truly a great cabin! There are several options for different cabins based on the amenities you prefer. If you don’t find one you like, you might as well stay home; cause nothing is gonna make you happy! Definitely recommend!"
