Welcome to our authentic log cabin. We are proud to offer a very clean and well equipped cabin for our guests Our private road brings you through our gate, to the large open areas around the cabin.There is plenty of parking for everyone . The kids can explore our property, or climb on the kids play structure or huge assortment of BIG boulders to climb and jump between. There is also a baby deer sanctuary a short walk from our cabin. The caretakers are always happy to let you interact with the deer in their natural setting. Sometimes the deer wander up to our cabin for a visit. Many of the adults guests have said their visit to the Sanctuary was more fun for them than the kids. The South Toe River which is about a mile away, as the crow flies. It is a gentle river perfect for fishing, tubing, or a peaceful rafting trip for as long as you would like. There are many places to pull ashore if anyone gets tired. The cell service is pretty good through most of that area of the river. That makes it easy to have someone pick you up when you have had a full day. I have been told by the "locals" that the river can be taken all the way into South East TN. after joining with the Nolichuckey River.
Some of our guests have decided to bring their own RV for sleeping purposes. We are always flexible and strive to make your event, exactly what you have planned it to be. We understand the tremendous amount of planning that goes into getting everyone's schedule in sync when deciding on the dates, location and pricing for 30 to 40 adults and children.

The cabin was beautiful, spacious, and well maintained. Some of the photographs show CRT televisions, I would note that they're all modern flat-panel televisions now (important if you're bringing a game system along). The view from the mountains is lovely.
The driveway is a bit of a beast, I made it first try by sticking far to the left, going a little faster than I was comfortable with, and not stopping, but others in our group took a few tries to get up, or just parked at the foot of the driveway. If you can use an all-wheel-drive vehicle to get your gear to the cabin, you're good, but the cabin itself is well worth that little bit of inconvenience.
The owners were very easy to work with, and have provided thorough documentation for various features of the house. We'll definitely be coming here again.
