Enjoy catch & release fishing or just watch the sunrise from the dock while drinking coffee on the scenic pond.

Online school or work? No problem.
* Unlimited high speed WiFi

Le logement
Hosts Ben & Jeanne invite you to their newly-purchased "lake house." The cabin offers nearby outdoor recreation at Look Rock Tower on Foothills Parkway (4 miles away), Chilhowee Lake, and is located near the entrance to the #1 bike & sports-car destination in the US - the "Tail of the Dragon."

Need a breather from the hectic pace of life? Drop a line in the pond. Sit on the dock and soak in some rays. Read a novel while relaxing in a hammock by the water. Spend some downtime around the fire pit roasting S'Mores under the stars. Challenge each other to a a card game or an old-fashioned evening of board games. Sip hot chocolate or savor a cup of coffee on the deck. Take a leisurely paddle around the pond in our paddle boat. You know...RELAX!

If you’re feeling adventurous, hike some of the area Great Smoky Mountain National Park trails, go float tubing on Abrams Creek or the Little River in Townsend, explore a cave at Tuckaleechee Caverns, go horseback riding in Townsend or Wear’s Valley, drive through Cades Cove or up to Newfound Gap in the National Park. All of this is within an hour drive or less from our cabin. The cabin is located just a couple miles off Foothill Parkway and only moments from the western edge of the Smoky Mountain National Park.

If you want the hustle of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge or get worried if you're not around the corner from a Walmart, this isn't the place for you. But, if you long for peace, quiet, nature, and the outdoors, you're in the right place!

You will have exclusive use of the entire guest cabin as we only rent to one person/group at a time. The cabin sleeps up to 6 people. The master bedroom sleeps 2 in a queen bed. The second bedroom sleeps 2 in a double bed. A queen sleeper sofa in the main room offers a surprisingly comfortable air-filled mattress similar to a Sleep Number bed. A pack-and-play portable crib is available at no charge for guests with babies.

Enjoy cooking dinner in the well-furnished kitchen complete with full size appliances, plenty of nice cookware, dishes, a selection of spices, coffee, teas, sugar, powdered creamer, a Keurig machine and a full size drip coffee maker, cooking utensils, and an ice chest for day trips. An outdoor charcoal grill is provided, but please pick up your own charcoal or lighter fluid.

The cabin bathroom includes a shower but does not have a tub. The shower is 6’4” high so could be a bit short for a taller person. There is no washer or dryer.

We happily welcome well-behaved pets. A nominal one-time $20 pet fee (not per day, just once for the entire stay) for indoor pets may be paid upon your arrival. ***Note that the national park does not permit pets on park trails. We also ask that you not leave a pet locked in a room while you are away as this is a source of great anxiety for a pet. In other properties we host & co-host, we have had one pet shred carpet and gouge the bedroom door, a couple gouge doors and walls trying to get out, and another shred a brand new expensive quilt. If you need to leave your pet while you’re out, a crate may provide a safer environment for them.

We ask that you include children over age 3 in your reservation guest count as we prepare beds, linens and schedule cleaning time at the end of your stay based upon the total number of guests including children. There is no charge for babies sleeping in a crib.

*High speed WiFi
*No cell service
*Guests with WiFi calling on their cell phone will have cell service at the cabin
*Our internet service is fixed wireless broadband—internet over radio signal. The service is very good and generally quite reliable. However, since the signal is broadcast, if power is out at the broadcast tower or at the cabin, the internet may be down. This is infrequent and typically brief, but we want guests to be aware since there is no standard cell service at the cabin. There is a map inside the cabin that gives directions to the closest cell reception areas.

$60 cleaning fee
$6 ex person fee per night for over 4 guests (no charge for children under age 2).
**Airbnb service fees and state/county sales & lodging taxes (14.75%) are added to your reservation total. We do not receive the Airbnb fee.

Check-out is 10 am
Check-in is 4 pm (later is fine)
****We strongly suggest you arrange to arrive in daylight hours as it is much easier to find the cabin in daylight***

If it happens to snow while you’re here, you are in for a beautiful treat! There’s just one itsy-bitsy snow, the cabin is accessible only in 4WD to an experienced mountain driver. January & February are the months most likely to have snow. If you book a stay for January or February, please message us and we’ll discuss the roads and your vehicle to help you decide whether you are comfortable planning a trip then. We DO NOT provide a refund for winter weather. Please don’t worry needlessly, though, because we have several 4WD and AWD vehicles and could shuttle you from the valley up to the cabin. We won’t let you get stranded on the mountain :)

Not to worry--We own two other cabins in the area and co-host another cabin located in Townsend. “Away from It All in the Smokies” is atop a nearby mountain. It offers an extraordinary view of the Smoky Mountains and Chilhowee Lake. “Happy Bear Hideaway” is a 100 year old cabin located in Happy Valley near the Abrams Creek Campground entrance to the national park. We rescued and renovated this historic cabin. It’s ideal for bikers and sports car enthusiasts as it is on a paved road with easy access to US Hwy 129 (the world-famous “Tail of the Dragon”) and Foothills Pkwy. We co-host a very nice 2 BR/2 Bath cabin in Townsend. It’s also on a paved road and is convenient to several restaurants, a grocery store and to Cades Cove. Click on the picture of our Profile to see all of the properties we host and co-host.

Accès des voyageurs
Amenities include a pond for catch & release fishing, swimming, and paddle boating, Great Smoky Mountain hiking trails at Abrams Creek Campground, and an outdoor firepit complete with marshmallow roasting sticks.

We stock the cabin with many cooking essentials such as seasonings, oil, sugar, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, coffee creamer, and a selection of condiments such as mayo and ketchup.

The nearest grocery stores are over Chilhowee Mountain in Maryville (13 miles). The nearest store of any kind is a Dollar General (about 8 miles). Unless you plan to spend time in Maryville, pick up groceries before you arrive.

Maryville has two Superwalmarts, a huge Kroger Marketplace, numerous other large grocery stores, and numerous restaurants. Townsend (25 min) has one IGA grocery market, a Dollar General, and 8-10 restaurants.

You are the ONLY guests in the cabin. No other residences are visible when the leaves are out. You may hear other residents of the community or neighbor’s pets, but we haven’t found it to be troublesome at all. Community quiet hours are 10 pm - 7 am. We ask that guests be respectful of these times.

Check in after 4 pm
Check out by 10 am

Autres remarques
Our calendar is always 100% current so you can be assured that if a date is open, it IS available.

We believe in honest pricing so we offer reasonable rates year round, even at premium times. In fairness to all guests, we do not offer discounts to specific groups (such as AAA, AARP, military, etc).

If you have a specific date in mind, we encourage you to book as soon as you finalize your plans. The other three cabins we manage are booked 75% - 90% of nights. Virtually all weekends get booked. We suggest you reserve weekends and holidays well in advance. With the Airbnb reservation system, an "inquiry" does NOT hold the requested dates.

Guests are welcome to check in anytime after 4 pm at your convenience. We strongly suggest you try to arrive during daylight hours as it is easier to find the cabin in daylight.
Guests may check out anytime before 10 am.

We will provide a door code shortly before your stay so you’re free to come and go at your convenience.

*Security Cameras
There are no interior security cameras.
A couple outdoor cameras are installed and could be in use for security.


Some of these policies outline how we enforce the Airbnb Guest Standards. Policies may be mediated or enforced by Airbnb or law enforcement. When reasonably possible, we will seek to address policy concerns with you directly before asking Airbnb or law enforcement to intervene.

• The Top of the World community enforces quiet hours from 10 pm to 7 am.
• Sound travels unusually well over the pond, particularly at night. Please limit noise to conversation-levels in the evening or early morning hours
• If Top of the World security receives a noise complaint, guests must immediately reduce noise or may be asked to vacate with no refund.

• Typically, preparing the cabin for the next guest requires 2-4 hrs
• Guests who leave the cabin in particularly unacceptable condition may be charged an additional cleaning fee of $50/hr plus cleaner’s mileage
• Whether we can identify the smell or not, strong odors will incur the additional cleaning fees noted above
• Guests are responsible for the cost of any rental or purchase of cleaning equipment & supplies required to remedy major cleanliness concerns.
• Guests are responsible for replacement/cleaning costs of damaged items
• Should guests leave such a mess or damage that we are unable to accommodate our next booking, other fees (beyond cleaning fee noted above) include reimbursement for any cancellation or rebooking fees we might incur due to being unable to accommodate the next guest(s), the cost to place the next guest(s) in another location, reimbursement for other costs we might incur for the closure, plus up to $200/day per 24 hrs of closure. Any insurance payment/reimbursement we receive related to the mess/damage will not reduce the amount owed.

• Anyone not counted/included on a reservation is an Unauthorized Guest. Make sure to include children in the reservation.
• Guests who make a reservation must provide Airbnb a government ID and be one of the guests staying (no third-party bookings). We may request to see your ID.
• Request changes to the number of guests up until the day before your stay. Fees will be adjusted up or down at our standard extra person rates.
• You may ask to add extra people to your reservation at the last minute, but approval is at our discretion. If we agree, the last minute guests are double the nightly extra person fee for the entire length of the reservation, regardless of how long the person stays. These extra guests are Unauthorized until your reservation is updated and paid on Airbnb.
• If you bring more people than our stated maximum occupancy, each extra person is $100 per person, per night, for the entire length of the booking, regardless of how long the person remains on our property. These guests remain Unauthorized Guests and we can ask Airbnb to charge you for these guests even if you don’t agree to the charges.

If you bring Unauthorized Guests, everyone may be asked to vacate the property immediately, or at any time during a reservation, with no refunds for any remaining nights.

(Should you wish to have day guests, please discuss that with us.)

• Park vehicles on graveled areas of the property
• Do not park between the cabin and the mini cabin as this is where an underground propane tank, the septic tank, and other utilities are located

• No smoking or vaping indoors
• If you smoke or vape outdoors, close nearby doors and windows to avoid smoke smells inside the cabin.
• Extinguish and dispose of butts properly
• No marijuana usage (illegal in TN)
• Many guests are sensitive to smoke. Take care to avoid bringing in smoky smells on clothing or personal items
• Smoky or inhaled substance smells will incur a minimum $250 fee, in addition to cleaning or closure fees

• Check out is 10 am SHARP!
• Late fees are $100 per 30 minutes past 10 am
• Our cleaners live as much as an hour away. We cannot call last minute to tell them a guest is running late. They have already left home, arranged for childcare and are awaiting your prompt departure. We have 6 hours to clean multiple cabins scattered over 30 miles. A guest who checks out late is a huge problem for us. We compensate our cleaners when they are sitting waiting on your departure.

• Check in is anytime after 4 pm
• Later is no problem, just let us know so we won’t worry too much
• NO early check in. Guests who arrive prior to 4 pm will be asked to wait until we are finished cleaning.

• We are pet-friendly
• Pet fee is $20 (one time fee)
• No specific limits on size or breeds, but pet owners are responsible for the actions of their pets and for any damage that their pet may cause

Guests will be asked to leave immediately with no refund, even if we have not personally observed usage. Reports of usage by neighbors, security team members, or law enforcement will incur the same action and penalties as if we had personally observed usage.

Tallassee, Tennessee, États-Unis

The cabin is in the “Top of the World” community which is located on a section of Chilhowee Mountain more than 2,000 feet in elevation. Originally planned as a camping vacation community in the 1960's, it is home to one large mountain lake and several ponds. Like most Tennessee mountain communities it is an eclectic mix of long-term East Tennesseans, transplants and vacationers. A secluded trail into the national park (Gold Mine Trail) is about 1 mile away. Abrams Creek Campground, which has swimming, tubing and hiking, is about 7 miles away. Because of its isolation we have never seen more than 10 cars in this national park parking area. You can drive to an awesome view at Look Rock Tower on Foothills Parkway in ten minutes. The tower is accessed via a paved and fairly easy half-mile trail. From the tower you can see about half of the Smokies, Maryville, and the Cumberland Plateau. Visibility ranges from 30 to 100 miles. Like Abrams Creek, it is never crowded.

Distance to other nearby attractions:
US 129 / "Tail of the Dragon" - 20 minutes on the TN side
Foothills Parkway (scenic highway) - 10 minutes
Fishing/Kayaking on Chilhowee Lake - two boat launches/piers - 20 minutes away
Cades Cove - 50 minutes
Townsend - 30 minutes
Gatlinburg - 1 hr
Pigeon Forge - 50 minutes
Maryville - 25 minutes
Knoxville airport - 35 minutes
Knoxville city - 50 minutes
UT Knoxville - 45 minutes

My husband, Ben & I love the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains. He's a pastor and I'm a real estate agent. We share an interest in hiking, kayaking, fishing, traveling, music, and spending time with friends, family, and church members.

If you have interest in land or homes anywhere in the Tennessee Smoky Mountain area, let her know before your visit and she would be happy to schedule time to show properties during your visit.
