Take in gorgeous mountain vistas between exploring the national park, downtown attractions less than 4 miles away, and the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community when you opt to stay at The Homestead and The Shed. With panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains, a combined 1,600+ square feet of space, rustic vibes in a natural setting, and modern amenities to entertain, this restored and revamped log cabin in Gatlinburg offers a glimpse into the pioneer past without sacrificing homey comforts.

Featuring 2 Gatlinburg cabins, this beautiful Tennessee property offers accommodations for up to 10 guests with a main vacation home (The Homestead) and a separate guest house (The Shed). With historic architectural features from the mid-1800s, a hand-hewn dogtrot cabin on a Roan County farm in West Virginia was reclaimed and revived in the Timber Ridge community of Gatlinburg to create The Homestead. Each log was painstakingly marked and categorized to ensure accurate restoration.

In place of the original breezeway, you’ll find a full kitchen, living room, and dining area with views of the Smokies! This single-level cabin in Gatlinburg offers antique elements — including huge white oak logs with chinking and dovetail notching, exposed beams stacked high, and tongue-and-groove construction. Enjoy cups of coffee in the rocking chairs, hot tub soaks, and outdoor dining with mountain views on the main deck. A crackling fireplace is great for fall or winter stays, and the big screen TV is ideal for movie nights.

Additional amenities at this secluded cabin rental include free Wi-Fi, a washer/dryer, reclinable sofas, keyless entry, 2 drip coffeemakers, and 2 charcoal grills. The guest house boasts a studio-style setup with a full bed, a TV, a kitchenette in the loft, and an en-suite bathroom. There are 2 bedrooms in the main Gatlinburg cabin with king beds, twin bunks, TVs, and en-suite bathrooms. Plan your Smoky Mountain vacation at The Homestead and The Shed and be surrounded by wild beauty, wonderful serenity, and mountain history.

Living Room
Chat about your time spotting the world-famous synchronous fireflies in the Smoky Mountains, shopping for souvenirs in downtown Gatlinburg, or walking across the record-breaking SkyBridge while lounging in the living room at your cozy cabin. Bright windows let in plenty of natural light and stunning mountain views during the day, and the gas fireplace in stone offers the perfect setting at night in fall or winter.

Kick back in the reclinable sofas with entertainment playing on the 65-inch ONN/Roku smart TV. Switch on the ceiling fan for added comfort in warmer months. And enjoy quality time with loved ones or a great book next to the fireplace on your mountain getaway.

Kitchen + Kitchenette
For meals, snacks, and beverages, head to the fully equipped kitchen with a galley-style setup and all the tools and appliances you’ll need at your Gatlinburg cabin rental. Granite countertops pair with classic log cabin vibes to create a welcoming space to prep, cook, and serve. You’ll have a standard drip coffeemaker, electric range, fridge with icemaker, microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans, dishes, glassware, mugs, utensils, and an industrial-style sink.

Plus, the guest cabin offers its own kitchenette in the loft — with a mini fridge, another drip coffeemaker, microwave, sink, and toaster. Everyone will have a place to grab treats, whip up meals, and pour drinks.

Dining Areas
Pair cotton candy wine from Gatlinburg Winery with dinner or dessert in the dining areas. Around the kitchen in the main Smoky Mountain cabin, you’ll find the primary dining area with a large table and wall bar with a mountain view towards Pigeon Forge. Set the table for mealtimes, board games, crafts, or puzzles together. You can also set up laptops or a drink station at the wall bar.

In the guest cabin’s loft there’s a bistro for 2, so you can wake up and enjoy coffee and breakfast with a friend or sip wine with your partner in the evenings without disturbing the main house.

Bedrooms + Studio-Style Shed
Between beating escape games, playing mini-golf, hiking to waterfalls, or axe throwing in Gatlinburg, unwind at your 3-bedroom cabin in the Smokies. The Homestead offers 2 bedrooms — separated by the communal kitchen, living, and dining area for added privacy. And The Shed features a studio-style design with 1 bedroom as soon as you step inside.

Each bedroom has its own TV and en-suite bathroom, creating private Smoky Mountain hideaways for everyone in your group. In the main vacation rental, you’ll have 1 king-size bed, 1 built-in twin-over-twin bunk, and a 40-inch Hisesnse/Roky TV in each bedroom, and each en-suite has a shower/tub combo. In the guest cabin rental, you’ll have a full-size bed, an armchair, a 32-inch TCL/Roku TV, and a walk-in shower.

With separate accommodations for up to 10 guests across 2 cabins, you can bring family and friends for a memorable mountain retreat. The attention to detail and efficient living setup offers a unique option for your next group vacation.

Outdoor Spaces
Whether cool, rainy, snowy, or warm Gatlinburg weather settles into the area, your Smoky Mountain cabin rental offers captivating views of the Great Smoky Mountains. At the main cabin, you’ll have a covered deck with a steamy hot tub for soothing soaks, rockers for coffee, tea, or moonshine sips, and a table for outdoor dining — all with gorgeous mountain vistas!

Exceptional outdoor living continues at the guest cabin, which features an open-air balcony overlooking the Smoky Mountains. You’ll also have 2 charcoal picnic-style grills for fun mountain cookouts on your family vacation or weekend trip with friends.

Convenience is key on your Gatlinburg vacation, and this rental cabin offers a secluded location not far from Parkway attractions, a flat driveway atop a mountain road, parking for 3 vehicles, only 3 steps to reach the front porch of the main cabin, and 0-step entry to head inside the guest cabin.

Other Amenities
Enjoy simple self check-in and checkout with keyless entry. Tap into the free Wi-Fi to stay connected while away. And use the stacked washer and dryer to stay on top of laundry, instead of packing chores for your trip home at this wonderful Gatlinburg rental. Also note there’s a mini split air conditioner/heater in the guest cabin for added comfort.

We highly recommend Sheriff’s Cabin since it’s only a 1-minute drive from The Homestead and The Shed! Other area cabins within 2-3 minutes include the following.

Local Fun
Beyond your Smoky Mountain cabin rental, enjoy tons of nearby attractions — less than 4 miles away in downtown Gatlinburg — plus even more options within a short drive in neighboring Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and Wears Valley. Play escape games, defeat high arcade scores, race go-karts, peruse funky museums, meet penguins at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, check out events at Ober Mountain, ride coasters at Dollywood, and sip Ole Smoky Moonshine…for starters!

Plus, you can stop by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to hike trails like Grapeyard Ridge or Abrams Falls. Drive to see The Place of a Thousand Drips, a cascading waterfall you can spot on a scenic drive. Fly fish for dazzling rainbow trout or set up a picnic by a beautiful river. There’s also horseback riding, mountain biking, wildlife spotting, touring Cades Cove, and autumnal leaf peeping.

Explore this award-winning adventure park atop Anakeesta Mountain — loaded with family-friendly things to do like the Treetop Skywalk, Astra Lumina experience, seasonal events, and much more!

Amazing Mirror Maze & Circus Golf
Featuring the largest mirror maze in town plus an indoor mini-golf course and a virtual shooting cinema, this entertaining attraction in Gatlinburg offers fun for the whole family.

Moonshine Mountain Coaster
Hop in a single or double car and zoom down the hill at your own pace: fast for daredevils or slow for sightseers. Psst…the night ride is pretty neat!
