When most people talk about building a log cabin, they plan to use a "log kit" of pre-milled logs that are already notched and ready to be stacked. Not Linda and Ivor, the owners and builders of a Smoky Mountain Retreat. They constructed the "real McCoy", and guests can notice the difference.

Because the cabins are made with logs sawed at the local sawmill from trees that are harvested by Ivor, the fragrance and grain of the floors, walls, ceilings and porches are remarkable. The actual process of air drying the lumber took one year, followed by the cutting and stacking of the logs to form the cabin. With the help of their three sons, Ivor and Linda complete one log cabin a year. Hard work, sore muscles and long hours make these special cabins beautiful retreats year 'round. Amid in the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains, you can unwind in the clean air and panoramic views.


Nature is at your doorstep in these log cabins. Relax on the lovely covered porch and watch the sunset or listen to the crickets. There are plenty of places to go hiking, fishing, horseback riding, tubing, rafting, swimming, or biking. Visit the Cherokee Indian Reservation or Oconoluftee Indian Village. Other attractions in the area include Deep Creek, waterfalls, gem mining, Gatlinburg, Dollywood, Biltmore Estate, Fontana Dam, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Dillsboro and Pigeon Forge.

Plan your next vacation or romantic weekend respite in the fresh mountain air of the Smoky Mountains and make your reservations at the Smoky Mountain Retreat. Fun for the whole family. You won't be disappointed by these fantastic cabins built with lots of love and labor.
