    The cabin was great. Very minor issues, but nothing worth writing about. The water hot water is wonderful!! The location is great. Away from the crowds, but an easy drive if wanting to go to the tourist area

    We had a great time and the cabin had plenty of room. We've never not had a good time in the mountains.
  • - 9/16/2019

    This place was amazing. Great location and a lot of room. It was great to have a garage as well to keep our motorcycles inside at night.
  • - 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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Very spacious cozy cabin with all the amenities! We would love to visit again with the rest of our family thank you so much!

    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
