About the property

Great view in great neighborhood. Close to the park & convenient to Gatlinburg

Beautiful Luxury 5bd/3bath home with mountain views from 3 levels.

This beautiful log cabin is perfect get-away for family or friends. Sleeps 12 comfortably + a sleeper for up to 2 more: Master bedroom with King, 3 additional bedrooms with Queen beds, a 5th room sleeps 4 with queen over queen bunk bed, and sleeper sofa if needed in living room.

Convenient to Smoky Mountain national part, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge (Dollywood). Short day trip to Cherokee casino or Biltmore House.

Just renovated cabin

Lots to do with pool table in game room, amazing hot tub, lots of rockers for reading and just relaxing, wrap around porch, flat screen TV's in all rooms, and large projector in multimedia room. Lots of wildlife we often see a family of deer and on occasion we will see a black bear and her cubs.

In 2016 we redid the outside of the house and replaced key windows.

Our neighborhood hosts 3 pools, golf course, and for larger events ability to rent space from the neighborhood HOA office at the very top of the mountain.

We purchased this property late last year. Our friends call our remodel a rebuild as we have gutted 3 levels to take this 1970s cabin into the 21st century. it was very trying and everything took longer than expected. We try to continually enhance the property.

About Ed Tollefsen

We are a family of 3 with aspirations of retiring to the mountains and managing 5 of our own properties and 15 others luxury vacation rentals. This Condo represents our 3rd property

In 2014, we took over the daily management of the property. We aren't prefect but we do believe in continuous improvement. We consider our places to be part of your vacation experience and as such we are part of 100's of joyous times with families and friends. Our hope is that the cabin & your stay in this beautiful city is a lifelong memory.

For those questioning the picture. I figured being in the vacation business i'd share us on vacation. Thats City Park in New York.

Ed Tollefsen purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Ed Tollefsen chose Gatlinburg

We bought the property in October 2014 as a distressed foreclosure. We loved the view and the neighborhood and decided to restore this wonderful old cabin. The renovations took a life of their own as it became a bit of a rebuild.

We have enjoyed bringing this 1970's property up to 21st century standards. Our goal has been to bring modern convenience while maintaining a unique country cabin feel.

What makes this lodge unique

Convenient to Smoky Mountain National Forest, Gatlinburg. short drive to Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, and Biltmore Estate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family spent part of the Christmas holiday at Ed and Janan's home. They are lovely hosts. He promptly answered any questions I had before and during our stay. Their home is lovely, well equipped and very clean. We especially loved the wrap around porches ,looking into the mountains. We would definitely stay here again!

Response from Ed & Janan:

Thanks Tracy it was a pleasure having you. Please come again soon. in fact we are open this weekend :).

Wonderful stay at this beautiful cabin. All the beds were confortable and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking meals. Even a crock pot! Ed made sure all our needs were met and went above and beyond. He was easily available by phone at a moments notice. This cabin is very nice and the view was beautiful.

beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our extended family weekend! There were plenty of bedrooms so everyone had their own space. The kitchen was functional and had everything we needed. The cabin is beautiful and spacious. The kids loved watching movies on the big screen. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed watching the weather come in over the mountains from the large picture windows. I only wish we were there when it was colder so we could have used the really cool fireplace!

Great cabin with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

I had a party of 9 with me to celebrate my birthday. The cabin was perfect for the amount of people. Very spacious , nice layout and beautiful view. Everything we needed was right there, pots,pans,wine glasses,coffee cups if you need it it’s there(there was even a deck of cards). This place was amazing and very clean. I would definitely use it again in the future.

Beautiful Cabin with a beautiful view of the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying in this beautiful cabin. One of the things we loved most was the beautiful view of the Smokey Mountains right from the living room area, and it has several balconies to sit on the outside and view them from on warmer days. We enjoyed great family time playing pool, relaxing in the hot tub and even rented a movie from redbox and watched on the big screen in the downstairs rec. area.The owners were great to respond quickly to answer any questions or concerns. It has lots of little extras for comfort and convenience also. We definitely recommend it and hope to return again for another great stay.
