Serendipity Too is perfect for savoring romance and bliss with the Love of Your Life in our private love nest. Whether you're getting engaged, celebrating a wedding, planning a honeymoon or anniversary getaway, our home is lavishly decorated with Your New Beginnings in mind!

Serendipity Too was completely remodeled inside & out in 2012 and our decor is updated seasonally. Our log home has black appliances, granite-look counter tops, stylish plumbing & light fixtures, a queen sleeper sofa and bumper pool/poker table in the carpeted loft, white blinds, cute dishes & lots of cookware if you want to cook at home!

Plus we've improved our property with an outdoor fire pit and lots of ever-blooming red and magenta rose bushes as well as hundreds of perennials.

Perfect for all our Christian guests, we created a prominently-placed 12-foot long banner that proclaims: 'As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord!' Joshua 24:15

Big Black Bears have been seen right here! (Looking for tasty garbage, not people!)

Romantic Serendipity Too is an all-log home nestled on a mountain ridge in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, just 15 minutes away from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountain National Park entrance. It provides a private, peaceful location perfect for your romantic getaway or weekend escape, yet is also prepared to host up to 6 adults.

Our cabin is located in a log home community called Sky Harbor, accessed from the King Branch Road exit just a 15 minute drive southeast of Pigeon Forge on Parkway 441, and about 15 minutes to Gatlinburg. All cabins are owned individually, as opposed to being part of a resort. You can expect to drive 5 to 10 minutes from the Parkway up to the cabin. The closest Trolley Stop is located at the Gatlinburg Welcome Center, about 10 minutes farther southeast from the King Branch Road exit on Parkway 441. Click on our map link to see exactly where Serendipity Too is located and you can zoom out to see Pigeon Forge (about 10 minutes northwest from the King Branch Road exit) and Gatlinburg (about 15 minutes southeast).

Enjoy the tranquil relaxing breeze from the Cracker Barrel rocking chairs and bench on our back porch as you view the beautiful Smoky Mountains. Let our cabin transport you from the every-day hustle and bustle to a place where you will refresh and renew. You will enjoy the privacy and peacefulness here, since each home is on an acre lot and the nearest cabins are at least 100-200 feet away on either side, or 500 feet up or down the mountain. The back deck has bamboo privacy blinds and ivy-covered lattice that keep others from seeing you when you’re enjoying the hot tub.

The Mountain View from our front porch expands across a valley to another mountain ridge covered with trees and other cabins. There’s no other cabin directly in front of or behind Serendipity Too. Our large wooden porch swing hangs beneath the back deck with full afternoon sun and splendiferous sunset views.

As you enter this cozy chalet style log home you will find 30' high vaulted ceilings with a large river rock-covered fireplace and log mantel, a 32' TV with DVD/VCR player, a leather sleeper sofa with a queen-size bed and stereo with AM/FM/CD player in the open great room.

Our fully-equipped kitchen includes a large round glass and wrought iron table with four comfortable suede-upholstered chairs. You will be pleased to find there are plenty of upscale dishware, silverware, utensils, pots & pans, casserole dishes, cooking and bake ware, appliances and Black & Decker coffee maker and toaster oven.

In the master bedroom you will find our Queen Anne Jacuzzi tub for two, perfect for a slippery & sudsy bubble bath with your honey. You will also have a sturdy queen size log bed with stylish comforter and soft linens, a closet and oak armoire for your clothes and a TV. This Master Suite opens out to the private deck where you'll enjoy the secluded wooded setting. A set of linens and towels are provided for your convenience along with a starter set of toilet tissue & paper towels.

Upstairs in our loft is a 3-in-1 bumper pool / poker / table, plus another TV with DVD/VCR and a large microfiber convertible sleeper sofa with queen-size bed. You will never have to leave this lover’s paradise to have a great time!

On the large back deck you have a huge hot tub comfortable for 4 or 6 people, plus 3 rocking chairs and a love seat with lots of pillows where you can enjoy the mountains with your special someone. You will have complete privacy with 3 sets of bamboo pull-down blinds and ivy-covered lattice that surround the deck. At night you'll enjoy the romantic lighting strung around the back porch ceiling!

Serendipity too has lots of adorable and romantic decorations and floral arrangements including hearts, angels and roosters and is bright and cheery with lots of huge windows for viewing the mountains. There is a full bathroom with tub and shower, plus a separate laundry room with full-size washer/dryer. There’s even an ironing board, iron and hairdryer!

Amenities include Wireless Internet, Charter Cable TV with extended network channels plus free local telephone service. Plus, we provide sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, wash cloths & soap for your personal & housekeeping needs.

This is the ultimate cabin to celebrate your engagement, wedding, honeymoon, anniversary or unique & romantic getaway; it's also perfect for family fun. We know you'll enjoy your stay in Serendipity Too and will find it difficult to leave!

This awesome romantic cabin is available to rent for 2 or more nights. We are Pet Friendly: Pets are allowed with prior written approval and pet fee. Please call or email NOW!

Very nice getaway!

The cabin was perfect for our family of four! The views were fantastic. The accomadations with towels & toilet paper were low. We got two towels (for the four of us) and one roll of toilet paper. Thankfully, those items are sold not too far away so we could make do. All in all, the cabin location was great & it was the perfect size for us! We would definitely recommend this & would come back!

Serendipity Too perfect!

My family stayed at Serendipity Too for our trip to Gatlinburg. It was a beautifully quaint cottage on a mountain, with just a 15 minute drive to town. This cottage was magnificent. It was the perfect house for our preteen boys and a German shepherd. They explored the wooded property while my wife and I enjoyed sitting on the back balcony. The interior was warm and welcoming and a fantastic place to return to after a day in the Smoky Mountain NP or a day in town.

My husband and I along with our 2 teenagers had the most enjoyable time at Serendipity Too! It was the perfect place to come home to and relax after long days of exploring the Smokey Mountains. There was plenty of room for all 4 of us and the loft area was perfect for our kids. We will definitely come again. The owner provided excellent customer service (and patience) as we are new to the VRBO booking process and hit a little glitch. Thankful for her! The cabin is located in a great place on the mountain that is easily accessible. Not one of those one lane in each direction/no guardrail "roads". Highly recommend.

During our October visit to the Smokey’s the area received a record amount of rain fall. We were very appreciative to have such a clean, quaint and comfortable home to wait out the storms. The last two days of our trip made up for the rain. The mountains put on such a display of spectacular color. It was truly soul cleansing. Thank you for sharing your home. We will return.

  • Large Black Bears looking for garbage naturally roam the area from about April till November. We have two 55-gallon metal drums with bear-proof lids for your garbage. If you WANT to increase your chances for seeing a bear, just leave some stinky rubbish by the fire pit, which you can see from a safe distance on both the front & back decks. We've seen them both day and night so you may be in luck! Our nearest neighbors are at least 200-300 feet away; none of the nearby homes face ours. You don't need to worry about snoopy people trying to catch you naked! Plus our back deck has three sets of bamboo pull-down blinds & ivy-covered lattice to provide maximum privacy while you enjoy the hot tub! There's a Hanging Swing for Two beneath the hot tub and a large open area with a real in-the-ground fire pit for your own campfire. There's plenty of kindling to get your fire started but you may want to buy logs from a store if you're not into gathering sticks from the woods!
