Reclaimed on a valley farm in West Virginia and restored in beautiful Tennessee, The Homestead was originally a mid-1800s dogtrot cabin with a breezeway that has been transformed into a lovely common area with mountain vistas, a crackling fireplace, a modern full kitchen, and a covered deck with a hot tub. This single-level, 2-bedroom cabin in Gatlinburg offers accommodations for up to 8 guests plus relaxing extras to make your family vacation, weekend with friends, holiday getaway, or spring break in the Smoky Mountains wonderful.

Unwind in the bubbling hot tub with soothing water jets while taking in the majestic mountain vistas. Sway in the rocking chairs with a glass of sweet tea, a cup of coffee, or a pour of wine. In fall and winter, enjoy the sounds of a crackling fire with a good book or a great friend. You can fire up the charcoal grill and dine at the outdoor table or fix meals in the fully equipped kitchen to dine inside at your log cabin in the Smokies.

On opposite sides of this 1,400-square-foot Gatlinburg cabin rental, you’ll find authentic hand-hewn logs of white oak with chinking and dovetail notching, which house the bedrooms and attached en-suite bathrooms. Accommodations for up to 8 guests include 2 king beds and 2 twin bunks. There are TVs in the bedrooms plus a big screen TV in the living room for added entertainment on your Gatlinburg vacation.

For more fun, head to nearby family-friendly attractions, shops, events, and eateries less than 4 miles from the Timber Ridge community! Homey conveniences at your Gatlinburg cabin rental include free Wi-Fi to stay connected, a stacked washer/dryer, and self check-in with keyless entry. Enjoy peaceful moments and unforgettable times at this cozy cabin in the Smokies — with a natural setting, exposed beams, historic features, beautiful tongue-and-groove construction, and modern extras.

Living Room
After a full day of fun horseback riding in Cades Cove, meeting black bears at Ober Mountain, or oohing at Ripley’s Aquarium, return to the comfort of your Gatlinburg cabin. With a rustic ambiance throughout the open-concept living area, you’ll be transported to the pioneer past.

Sip Appalachian moonshine while chatting with friends in front of the gas fireplace. Gaze at passing clouds across the beautiful mountain landscape through the wall of windows. And for a nice modern touch, you’ll have a 65-inch ONN/Roku smart TV for entertainment anytime while lounging on the reclinable sofas.

Hungry after adventures with Smoky Mountain Outdoors Rafting or a major shopping spree in town? Don’t worry about popping into town for good eats and sips. Enjoy homemade meals, restaurant leftovers, baked treats, mixed cocktails, and more with the fully equipped, galley-style kitchen at your Gatlinburg rental cabin.

Granite countertops, wood cabinetry, pots and pans, cooking tools, dining utensils, plates, bowls, glasses, mugs, and standard appliances are all provided. Brew pots of joe with the standard drip coffeemaker, rinse fresh veggies and fruits in the double sink, cook with the electric range, use the microwave for movie-night popcorn, and load the dishwasher before bed.

Dining Area
Talk about all the fun fall, winter, spring, and summer things to do in Gatlinburg while dining at the table set in front of marvelous mountain views at your Smoky Mountain cabin rental. There’s also a wall bar for added space that’s great for setting up a laptop or crafts for the kids. Between mealtimes, play board games or cards at the table.

At your 2-bedroom cabin in the Smoky Mountains, you’ll have a king-size bed plus 2 built-in twin-over-twin bunks in each bedroom. As the most historic parts of this log cabin, you’ll find great attention to detail; the beams were painstakingly marked to ensure accurate restoration of the early cabin.

For more entertainment, each bedroom has its own 40-inch Hisense/Roku smart TV. Both bedrooms even have an attached bathroom with a shower/tub combo for added privacy when heading to bed or getting ready for the day.

Outdoor Spaces
Between hiking to Smoky Mountain waterfalls, fly fishing for rainbow trout, or kayaking the Little Pigeon River, retreat to the covered spacious deck with panoramic mountain views at your Gatlinburg cabin. Relax in the rocking chairs while admiring the many colors of fall, drifting snowflakes of winter, vibrant blooms of spring, or lush trees of summer.

A hot tub offers soothing soaks morning, noon, or night. And there’s a charcoal picnic-style grill plus an outdoor table for fun mountain cookouts with the whole family! For travel notes at this secluded cabin in Gatlinburg, parking for 2 is flat and paved, and there are only 3 steps up to reach the front porch.
