In the Winter of 2007 we were contacted about this cabin in Gatlinburg by a realtor friend. He told us what a great deal this site was with real space for parking and actual ownership of a beautiful creek. The obvious question was what kind of shape was the home in. Well there again our friend tells us it has just been remodeled with new appliances paint and more! It seemed to good to be true. Let me tell you folks it was not! We three years later have updated the master bath to a large soaking tub and new tile. Other than that the photos you see on our site are the way the house was purchased.
Decor: We added some attractive furniture as the walls had beautiful murals, and wonderful colors already present. My partners wife is very artsy and has much of her pottery and art on the walls. Something interesting to check out, in the screened porch look down and the creative designed vinyl rug. Flip it over at the corner, it's actually, a scrap piece of vinyl flooring that has been hand painted on the BACK to create a unique and gorgeous room rug. There are many more examples of custom art in the cabin. (check out the coffee table, we didn't buy it like that).
We are basically are two families that live in the area that wanted a little get-a-way spot for our families. We decided to start renting the cabin through VRBO as a way to let the cabin earn it's keep. It is has been a great idea and a way for us to fill in the times we aren't using it. We don't want to wear the cabin out but simply choose families and seniors that will respect our property and enjoy the wildlife and privacy this great spot offers.
What we do: When we go up to the cabin, even around Christmas, we walk with our kids down to breakfast at the Pancake Pantry, in downtown Gatlinburg. It is just about 1 mile and it has sidewalks all the way there. If you get tired and don't want to walk back, you can just catch the trolley. There is a trolley right across the street from the cabin! Another great place we go and eat is the Flapjacks restaurant just down the street. Sometimes during the winter we go up and spend the weekend and go skiing up at Ober Gatlinburg. If the snow is bad you have a no problem getting in and out of the cabin as it is not up the side of a mountain and the roads are so close in town that they are kept clear. You can always drive up to the tram and take the tram up to ski!
We immensely enjoyed Creekside Gatlinburg Cabin as our home-away-from-home for the few years that we owned it and so have many of our family members and friends. Now, its your turn!
