Standing tall, high atop a Tennessee mountain, awaits Deer Leap; a professionally decorated luxurious log cabin consisting of four stories, four bedrooms, and 4 ½ baths. Located within a gated community. Deer Leap offers unprecedented and unobstructed views of the mighty Mt. LeConte; one of the highest peaks of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Providing handicap friendly access via a ramp as well as handicap friendly amenities on the main level, Deer Leap also boasts a HD projection movie theater with recliner seating for 12 and PowerPoint presentation capabilities. Deer Leap’s location allows for easy access to great attractions and activities such as Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN, Tanger Outlet in Sevierville, TN and Ober Gatlinburg Ski Center in the quaint downtown district of Gatlinburg, TN. For the more adventurous types, there are plenty of activities moments away including: horseback riding, golf, go cart racing, river tubing, fishing, hiking, etc.

With the mighty Mt. LeConte sculpting a majestic scene of either winter’s ivory snow, spring’s awakening bloom, summer’s blanket of forest green, or fall’s kaleidoscope of color, you will awaken each day to mother nature perched upon your balcony. Deer Leap is appointed with all the amenities of home plus more. Air hockey, board games, billiards, bumper pool, chess/game table, and poker are just a few of the indoor activities to be enjoyed. Two wet bars - one with a U-line icemaker, each consisting of coffee makers, microwave ovens, under counter refrigerators, and HD 37” flat screen TV’s allow even more entertainment opportunities. And after a long day, you can soak your cares away in the bubbling interior Jacuzzi bath tubs. This and much more await you in Deer Leap. That is why guests return again and again to enjoy what they describe as their home away from home and “The Cure for the Common Life”

About the Owner

It started as a dream. A Louisiana born girl married to an Upstate New York boy - who met on a blind date years ago in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida - had a yearning for the majesty of the Adirondack Mountains but couldn’t imagine the risks involved in moving several jobs and families out of Florida. Along came an opportunity to move to Atlanta, GA. Imagine our surprise when we learned that the Great Smoky Mountain National Park was only 4 ½ hours away! Several inquiries and trips back and forth led to our decision to invest in this wonderland of nature’s beauty. When Gisela proclaimed in her thick German accent, “Dis is da Von”, while standing at lot 137, we knew that we had made the right choice. Steeped in history and lore, Deer Leap, a ridge in the Adirondack Mountains overlooking Lake George, NY, is connected to our family via memories – new and old. Therefore it was an easy choice when choosing a name for our new venture. Our love for each other and for our children, dogs, and horses has made this one of the best experiences of our lives and something we choose to share with others. We hope that you too will come to love our home as much as we do. With our pleasure, we present to you, DEER LEAP, “The Cure for the Common Life”.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! Where to begin!?!? Our long weekend was far

more than I could have imagined! The owner was

absolutely amazing to work with from start to

finish. The home...was unbelievable! Far more

than the pictures can relay! We had 6 in a our

party, and there was PLENTY of room to gather and

hang out or spread out and do our own thing. We

also brought our lab, Ally and even SHE can't wait to

go back (and she is NOT a fan of road trips!) I'm

often skeptical of 'pet-friendly' rentals - I wonder if

they will smell funny or have 'mystery stains' - this

was NOT the case at all at Deer Leap. The place

was spic and span! The surroundings are

breathtaking - and this was EVEN WITH the

remnants of Hurricane Isaac blowing through and

before the fall colors set in. The location is both

secluded and accessible and very convenient to the

shopping and activities in the area. Deer Leap is

definitely a gem that we plan to revisit again as

soon as possible!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5
The view is exceptional. The cabin itself is well built and furnished in an upscale manor.
The pool table, air hockey, foosball and video console are all all first quality, as are the rest of the furnishings. This cabin is on four levels, with a balcony porch on each level. There are 7 TV's!! Privacy in each level yet room for gathering on the main level. There is no lawn or paved road in front of this cabin as a FYI for dog owners. The owners are very considerate and respond promptly if needed. The cabin was decorated beautifully for fall when we arrived. All in all, a luxury "cabin".

What The Entire Family Needed!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW!!!!!! The cabin was perfect! The Kerr family knows how to make dreams come true. The cabin has everything you need and then some. We were greated with a wonderful gift bag and a phone call to make sure everything was perfect for us. The week we stayed was so relaxing and enjoyable. We are ages 13 to 77 and there was something for everyone at the cabin. My three teenagers did not want to leave even for the amusement park. They stayed at the cabin most of the week while the women spent time shopping. We did manage to get them to Dollywood and the water park. We made use of every inch of the cabin and I can happily say we will be back!!! Thank you Christine to you and your family for offering such a lovely home and experience.

Very Welcoming Owners and Beautifully Decorated~We will be back!

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived, we had a welcome basket full of goodies and coupons. This property is well maintained and stocked with fun. We got snowed in for a few days but we still had plenty to do. We met family from Louisiana there and there were a few fun surprises from the homeowner that made our trip so personal.

Although this cabin sits in a community, it is very private. It has beautiful views. My mother in law has a hard time with steps and the handicap ramp and suite made it perfect for her. She could be apart of all the activities without having to go up or down any steps.

The kids loved the games, puzzles, video games and movies. We had a "movie night" in the theater on one of our snow days. The cabin was so cozy, we didn't want to leave to go into Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. Although, if we wanted to it was a very short trip. This cabin is located at the first traffic light between both cities. It was easy to go to both places.

The pictures do not do the cabin justice. It's so much more beautiful and inviting than even the pictures show. The view is unobstructed and beautiful. The cabin was decorated for Christmas and it was so inviting. Every level of the cabin was tastefully decorated. Every day I found something new to look at.

This cabin is great for all ages. If you have a group, there is plenty of space to "spread out" from each other. There is also plenty of room to be together. I have told everyone about our adventure and I can't wait to return. And WE WILL BE BACK!!!

I have been coming to the Smokey Mountains since I was about 4 years old. I can honestly say, that this is the best place I have ever stayed in. The memories we made will last a lifetime. Thank you Christina and Deer Leap for such a beautiful experience.

Outstanding Vacation in the Smokies/Deal Directly With Owner

  • 5 of 5
This cabin offers everything it says and much more. We were extremely satisfied with the location (very close to Smoky Mtns. Park and Dollywood). The view was absolutely amazing. The pictures can't even capture the amazing view. There is so much to do right in the cabin there is no reason to leave. Our group ranged in age from 16 to 73 (14 total). There was plenty of space for everyone. The foosball and theater were a big hit with the young adults. We have already recommended this cabin to friends and would love to return again. We all wanted to stay longer (5 nights not long enough). We experienced some fantastic storms (almost like being in the middle of them we were so high up). Thanks you Christina and family for sharing your lovely cabin with us. It is a great place for a family reunion and offered EVERYTHING I was looking for while searching for a location...amazing view, hot tub, foosball, air hockey, pool table, card table, theater room, resort swimming pool, movies, board games, books, dining table large enough to accommodate large family dinners, plenty of TVs, plenty of parking, great location. The only thing missing was an elevator (there sure are a lot of stairs). THANKS TO MY FAMILY AND THE CHRIStINA AND HER FAMILY FOR SUCH GREAT MEMORIES....TWO THUMBS UP...RIGHT SIS...LAUGHTER IS BEST WHEN SHARED WITH FAMILY!!

From the Owner

We couldn't believe the amount of activities, both indoors and out, that Pigeon Forge provides. Dollywood, unique as its namesake Dolly Parton, is a one-of-a-kind Smoky Mountain Family Adventure! Spanning 125 acres and nestled in the lush foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, near Gatlinburg, Dollywood is one of the most popular family vacation destinations. Enjoy thrill to spectacular Dollywood amusement park rides including the award-winning wooden roller coaster The Thunderhead™-the wildest ride in the woods. Splash Country is one of the best water parks that we have been to. A definite pleasure during the hot summer months. Dixie Stampede and Go cart racing are also 'just around the corner' as are several arcades and miniature golf courses. Restaurants, outlet shopping, and art studios abound and make for a very busy afternoon of exhausting fun.

From the Owner

With all of the amenities, wants and needs that any good vacation deserves, Deer Leap is just moments away. A community pool is located within the gated community and less than 2 miles away, the town of Pigeon Forge abounds with restaurants, shopping, and all sorts of indoor and outdoor activities. Just five more minutes through the canopied wooded drive lays the quaint village of Gatlinburg with its patio waterfront bistros, curios shops, ski lifts and artisan culture. Sevierville, only minutes away in the opposite direction, contains one of our favorite outlet centers, Tanger Outlets, where we literally shop till we drop! After a day of constant activity, it is so nice to come back to the peace and serenity that our cabin provides. As enthusiastic cooks ourselves, we made it a point to stock our kitchen with as many appliances, both large and small to accommodate any culinary desire. Many times, we have opted to have all of our meals at Deer Leap and have enjoyed every minute!
