    My family and friends love to visit this cabin! Its spacious and located in a great area, remote but not to far away. The visit in June '24 was our second stay here. We loved the garage space for our motorcycles. The interior is clean and comfortable. Lots of sleeping spaces. We will be returning to Mountain Shade in the future.
  • - 11/25/2023

    We like the cabin it was our third time to stay there.
  • - 7/16/2023

    This is our second time staying at this cabin. It works well for our group. The beds are comfy, there are plenty of towels and "starter" supplies for most of the week. The managers are responsive to any issues that arise and are prompt and clear in all communications. There are several hairpin curves getting there and large dump trucks are currently working in the area (July 2023) so slow down and use caution on the road. Ample parking for 3-5 larger vehicles. Garage is available to use, but no remote. We used it for storing our supplies. Sure beats hauling everything up and down the steps,

  • - 5/8/2022

    We loved the cabin, it exceeded our expectations and was perfect for a weekend away. Check in and check out is seamless. We had 2 families staying together and it was large enough for everyone to have their own space. So peaceful and beautiful area and perfect for kids. Can't wait to book again!
  • - 4/11/2022

Would recommend to anyone wanting to spend time out of the hustle of everyday living. Thank you for providing families a place to enjoy and reconnect.

    Family trip! We don’t get to see our daughter, son in law and granddaughters from NC near enough so I booked the cabin so we could enjoy them and to get the cousins together! The cabin was idea for our family! We took a queen air mattress so no one had to sleep on the sleeper sofa! We put it downstairs in the room with the queen bed and bunks! The room still had plenty of room to move around. The kitchen had just enough room for two people to cook in without running into each other! Living room was large enough for all of us to congregate. We had an issue with downstairs shower but when I call the management they were there within 10 minutes to correct the problem! Past complaints were the two showers being small and yes they were tight, but they did the job! My complaint was the faucets weren’t user friendly along with the kitchen faucet! This is a place I will return to and tell others to use! Thank you for opening your home to my family!
  • - 1/7/2022

    The cabin was a good size for 3 couples. The kitchen was well stocked except for silver ware. It was very clean and had plenty of bath towels and plenty of closets. Kitchen had a large pantry to put your food in and a large refrigerator.
  • - 11/28/2021

    Wonderful place! Super clean and comfortable. Downstairs room with bunk beds great for kids! Kitchen stocked very well. Master bedroom windows don’t have curtains so might want to bring eye masks, worked great! Perfect vacation cabin, we’ll be back!
  • - 9/26/2021

    Very clean cabin, in peaceful neighborhood!
  • - 9/19/2021

    The house was beautiful! Everything was clean and nice! It was plenty big for a large family to stay in! The kids loved the swing set!
  • - 9/10/2021

    What a great experience! Our family absolutely loved our stay! It was very peaceful.
  • - 7/21/2021

    Mountain Shade was a great cabin for the five of us. Good/responsive communications with the mgrs. The bed and bath linens were very nice/plentiful. The soap, tp, dish detergent, trash bags provided were sufficient for the entire week. There's ample parking for 3-4 or more vehicles. Suggest you arrive in the daylight otherwise it can be hard to find the 1st time. GPS tells you you're there, but it's at the back of the property. You need to continue around another sharp curve and go to the 2nd driveway to be at the front. It was very difficult to find on a dark, rainy night, even with the directions provided. Showers were all on the smaller size, but avg size folks shouldn't have a problem; however, the heads don't seem to adjust. Bring your own blowdryer. No curtains in the main bedroom so plenty of morning light comes in. We had a couple of issues for mgt to address, which they did right away, with one being more successfully resolved than the other. We would stay here again on a future visit and recommend to others.
  • - 7/9/2021

    Had a very nice stay, cabin was nice, clean, and well well kept. It was easy to get to the surrounding areas. The cabin was well stocked with linens, towels, etc. Showers were small, not a lot of room in them. We Enjoyed our stay!
  • - 6/10/2021

    The cabin is just as listed on the site. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was very easy to find and get to and it was very clean and well maintained. There were plenty enough towels, washcloths and toiletries. I will definitely book with them again.
  • - 6/7/2021

    Cabin was exactly as described and had everything we needed. The only negative comment I have is that a neighboring barn holds guinea hens that can get quite loud, but never loud enough to disturb us while indoors.
  • - 4/18/2021

    Great house in the woods
  • - 3/27/2021

    Beautiful house, and surroundings. House was very clean when we arrived, and has pretty much everything you need. Smoky Cabins rental was easy to work with. This was our second time staying here. It won’t be our last. Perfect house for a group of 6.
  • - 3/22/2021

    We loved this cabin! Easy transaction! Overall perfect experience! We will DEFINITELY be back!
  • - 12/27/2020

    It was great only a few Cabins in the area not a lot of place to Hike though a lot of private property around it had a beautiful view for a white Christmas. Has a little wear and tear but gives it more of the cabin feel. We had a great time.
  • - 11/3/2020

    We were very pleased with the cabin and truly enjoyed our stay. Location of the property was perfect for our needs. It was an easy drive to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

    Very nice cabin. Very clean and well decorated
  • - 10/11/2020

    The cabin was well cleaned & managed. It had every thing we needed, we barely had to go into our extra supplies that we brought. We loved the location and that there was barely any traffic near us.

  • - 8/4/2019

    We enjoyed the close location to the park. It was great to have 3 bathrooms with 6 adults
  • - 7/16/2019

    We enjoyed our stay very much - loved the quiet, almost secluded cabin in the woods! We hope to visit there again & stay in this cabin again.
  • - 7/8/2019

    Great for several family members to stay. You don't need to bring anything extra for food preparation. Gas grill on back deck was good.
  • - 6/30/2019

    The cabin was very nice, but there is always room for improvement. The location is beautiful, out of the way. We loved how close it was to cades cove. We took the unimproved gravel road midway in cades cove and followed road back to cabin. Awesome.
  • - 6/27/2019

    Had great time!
  • - 6/2/2019

  • - 2/24/2019

    Very nice accommodations and great location.
  • - 12/20/2018

    The cabin was absolutely wonderful--big enough that no one in the family was tripping over one another, but not so big that I couldn't find one of the teenagers when he or she disappeared. The location was absolutely breathtaking, and I'm sure would be quite the site in the summer and fall! I liked how accessible it was to Maryville, Tennessee, as I was able to easily do some Christmas shopping while also avoiding the congestion of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg proper. Overall, I was very happy with my booking experience--the site is very easy to book through, the staff is friendly, and my stay was awesome! I will absolutely book through this company in the future, and I will urge my family and friends to do so as well.
  • - 12/9/2018

    Nice cabin. Would book again.
  • - 12/4/2018

    It was a beautiful cabin and my family really enjoyed their stay. Lots of space. The deck was a perfect place for peace and quite on a rainy day.

    Mine was a 5 star. Very nice. Loved it!
  • - 7/17/2018

    We had three sisters and there husbands staying 7 nights. We all had plenty of room to move around. Rooms are very large and comfortable. We all had our own bathrooms where we all could get ready. The room downstairs had extra beds that we did not even use. Kitchen had all the utensils that you need to fix meals. Highly recommend this place.
  • - 7/8/2018

    Perfect cabin for three couples and motorcycle riders. Garage to store bikes at night. Just far enough from main attractions and close enough to get to them. On a beautiful mountain! Would highly recommend this cabin.
  • - 7/2/2018

    Good location and a well-supplied cabin. Especially good screen porch and master bedroom.
  • - 6/23/2018

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mountain shade. We had five people and we had plenty of room the whole 6days we were there. We were on motorcycles and we had three motorcycles in a 14 foot trailer and we had plenty a room to park the trailer and also a garage to put the bikes in which was a great feature in choosing this cabin. The cabin was very clean and I appreciate a clean place to stay very much! The bedrooms are large and the beds Were queen size. The beds are not high end Quality but that was not expected and we all slept well . The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals every night. We used the grill on the outdoor deck every night for dinner. The grill is clean and the deck is a great place to hang out in the evening and morning. We loved the location of the cabin it is perfect for riding many routes on our motorcycle.It is right down the road from the Tuckaleechee caverns and I highly suggest going to see them. I would highly recommend this cabin and we would definitely stay in the future.
  • - 6/18/2018

    This place was awesome from the moment we got here. We came with a motorcycle trailer and three motorcycles and we had room for us all to park and it was a paved Road. Yes it is a little steep and windy and tight corners but we made it just fine and enjoyed it thoroughly. There is a garage to put the bikes in as well. We loved that it was quiet and secluded and on the quiet side of the Mountain which is exactly where we wanted to be. We had five people and we had plenty of room and enjoyed the space immensely. The place was very very clean and I appreciate clean a lot. You can tell they take pride in this place and the work shows. The kitchen is well stocked we were able to make every meal here without having to go out to expensive dinners. The grill was very clean and we appreciated having it right outside our door on the upper deck to grill are evening meals. If I had a question or concern the office was quick to respond it was very easy to leave the place locked and get it unlocked with a code given. The beds are comfortable but they are not high end quality but that is okay and it was not expected. We slept well and we are enjoying ourselves still as this is our third night here and I don't want to leave I love it that much. There are plenty of towels for everyone and there are garbage bags applied and dish soap and there was even a coffee pot and filters and coffee if needed. We happen to bring our own Keurig because we like a variety of coffees. The water is drinkable from the filter on the fridge. Again I would not hesitate to stay here again every single one of us loved it. We loved it the location and the cabin it self. Thank you and we will be back.
  • - 6/10/2018

    It was a great place to stay. Last year we were in a more crowded area and we really did appreciate being able to get away from the crowd this year. The reasons I'm not giving 5 stars - There were 3 beds. For a cabin that is listed to sleep 8, we would have like to have seen some twin beds in the bed rooms. A hot tube would have been a great addition. The ceiling in the master bedroom had a water stain. It was a small area and should have been painted when the repair was made. Over all a great cabin and I think with just a few changes it'll be the best.
    Management Response: Thank you for staying with us Dakota and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. This cabin does sleep 8 as it has a sofa sleeper in the living room. The owner is considering putting a bunk bed in the downstairs bedroom as well. The ceiling is slated for painting in between the next stay.
  • - 5/18/2018

    Very nice.
  • - 3/19/2018

    Very spacious cozy cabin with all the amenities! We would love to visit again with the rest of our family thank you so much!
  • - 11/14/2017

    We LOVED our stay at Mountain Shade! The inside of the cabin was nicely decorated. There was plenty of room for our family of 5 adults and 2 little ones. We enjoyed the fire pit and swings for the children. Although we don't have horses, they have a beautiful barn. The location couldn't be better. It is centrally located and just a short drive to Cades Cove or jump over the mountain via Wears Valley to Pigeon Forge. I will DEFINITELY be staying in this cabin again!!
  • - 10/29/2017

    Yes!! We would recommend this cabin and and we will be back. we brought horses, the barn was very nice,clean,and convenient to the cabin. we had 2 20 foot trailers and didnt have any troubles. saw two bears riding the trails. AWESOME! Thanks Keith and Cathy for your hospitality.
    Management Response: Thank you for being our test guest with horses Scott!! We appreciate all of your feedback and would love to serve you again in the future.
