This place was great! We needed to check in a little earlier than 3:00, so I spoke to Jason and he allowed us to check in early! The cabin was clean and in a great location! We would stay there again! Pam Nov. 2017

There wasn’t WiFi but we kept busy.... The only tv on the main level was in the upstairs loft... we wish there was one in the living room so we could enjoy watching movies by the fireplace but again not a deal breaker.... I loved drinking my coffee on the porch swing looking at the gorgeous view in peak leaf season!!! We will be back!!!

Awesome cabin in a remote location on a quiet mountainside. We didn't hear anything other than nature our entire time there. There's a small general store nearby for basic supplies or lunch, or you can reach Pigeon Forge in about 15 minutes for anything else. The driveway is a bit tricky and steep so get a little speed before starting. Once at the top, the cabin is beautiful. Wraparound decks on 2 levels offer views of the mountainside. The lower deck has a hot tub while the upper deck has 2 rocking chairs and a swing. Inside the cabin is fantastic, it feels very homey with the functioning wood fireplace and cozy couches. There's 2 bedrooms with king beds, a queen bed in the basement game room and a loft with a pullout couch bed. The kitchen is stocked with many of the basics you'll need to cook meals and seating for at least 6 at the table. There's no Wi-Fi so be sure to bring board games, movies and books for your down time.

Great cabin! It does take about 20 min to get to Pigeon Forge & 30 min to get to Gatlinburg from the cabin, so plan accordingly. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay!

What an incredible place!! Although the trek up the steep driveway is not for the faint of heart, the cabin is SO WORTH IT! Gorgeous log cabin with three floors and plenty of space. The wrap around porches are stunning and help to create the perfect “mountain weekend” atmosphere. We were blown away by the beauty of the cabin and the peacefulness of the surrounding area. We could not possibly have enjoyed our stay more! Highly recommend!!!

Somehow after living in Los Angeles for almost 10 years, we ended up in a little village called Leipers Fork and we absolutely LOVE IT! Together, we've been touring as a band for over a decade, and along the way we've made some smart investments. Gratidude Ranch was an unexpected surprise and we just can't keep good things to ourselves, so we decided to rent out our unique guesthouse and cottage on the property.

We also have a few cabins that we rent on Airbnb in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge TN.

I'm a real estate agent and I am happy to help our renters with their real estate needs while visiting the area. Whether relocating from another state and needing me to do some research, send listings prior to your visit and setting up showings during your stay, or simply needing a place in between moves or looking for a long term rental property, I'm happy to help!

We also run a non-profit off our ranch called "SAFE". We serve foster children and other families in need through several programs on the ranch. To learn more you can do a web search for Safe, Affirming, Family Environment. A portion of all rentals go to support our non-profit.

If you're staying at the ranch on a weekend, make sure to ask if we are hosting a farm-to-table dinner during your stay. deMarco is a Health & Wellness professional and incorporates his passion for healthy food on the ranch. We book pretty far in advance, however, sometimes folks cancel last minute so we may have a seat just for you.

We're grateful for what we've been given, and when we get to share it with others, it just makes our world happier. We live on our ranch site full-time with our twin sons, but our sleeping quarters are very private. You can have your privacy, or visit with us as we work the ranch.
