About the Owner

Rob and Cindy Hefner live in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. Gatlinburg is a long way from home for us, however, we immediately fell in love with the area and this cabin....We hope that you will to!

Truly 5 Star Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 9 eventful days soaking up the luxuries of the Smoky Mountains including exciting nights in Gatlinburg, Touring Wineries on the Smoky Mountain Wine Trail, Horseback Riding, Exploring Forbidden Caverns, Hiking, and celebrating birthdays and anniversaries with a decadent wedding cake and beautiful flower arrangements, but! The highlight of our trip was the recovery time we spent in this amazing cabin. The location was perfect. The cabin was spacious and comfortable for 4 adult couples. Plenty of room to chat, cook, eat together, and rest privately. The driveway; we love. It was sometimes challenging but all 4 vehicles made it up just fine, and there was plenty of space for all. I absolutely have to emphasize the level of cleanliness of this place. We have stayed in many cabins throughout NC and TN, and this was BY FAR, the cleanest cabin we have rented. Thank you so much for having us! We created great memories and beach sand loving Florida friends to experience The Mountain Life!

We were pleased with Echo Canyon. It took us quite some time to find the perfect vacation getaway. We wanted something away from the hustle and bustle of town yet safe surroundings for the kids to play outside. It had everything that we needed and then some.

The thing that made me most happy was that it was very clean. I worry with any place that we stay how clean it will be but the cabin was very well cared for and spotless in every nook and cranny.

There are several other cabins down this same road but until a walk on our last night, we didn't realize that they were there. You don't have a mountain view because you are nestled in the trees but it is still peaceful and beautiful. The driveway is rock and steep and a little hard to get up if you are not used to that type of thing. Make sure that you bring along an adventurous driver.

We went to Dollywood, Dixie Stampeede, Go Karting, Horseback Riding and shopping which were all within 20-30 minutes. The owners of this cabin are very quick to respond and very friendly too.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week a Echo Canyon and enjoyed every minute of it. It truly looks just like the pictures you see on VRBO. This cabin is located just a short 15-20 minute drive to Gatlinburg with beautiful scenery along the drive. We were thrilled to see the welcome basket with treats, maps, local information and a guide book on how to work all of the appliances. The owners have really thought of everything and personalized the cabin with beautiful furniture and decorations, there is also entertainment for all ages. There is a selection of DVD's and a game table that my grandchildren really enjoyed. The hot tub is well kept and very clean on the patio overlooking the woods and perfect for enjoying a quiet evening watching the fireflys. If you need anything all you have to do is text Rob and he is prompt to reply and answer any questions. It was also nice that the owners welcomed our pets as well. We have stayed at numerous cabin rentals and Echo Canyon Lodge has definitely been the nicest of them all and we hope to return again someday. Definitely a 5 star cabin!

From the Owner

The vision for us started in 2011. We had rented another cabin for our family and found Echo Canyon during a walk. We immediately loved everything about the cabin, from the location to the ideal layout of the property. Upon doing all of the market research, our interest was reaffirmed and we made an offer.....then came a boundary dispute between several owners in the area which resulted in the property being delisted until these issues could be settled through legal channels. We would check up on it quite often, but no change. Finally in early February of 2013, we received a call from our realtor that the property was back on the market and would likely receive multiple offers quickly. She was right, however, one of the offers was ours and we got it! It is a privilege to share our dream with you.

From the Owner

Echo Canyon has everything to offer that we feel families look for when visiting the area and renting a cabin. The location does have other cabins nearby, however, has a secluded feel and is not located in a cabin 'subdivision', which we consider undesirable. The drive to the cabin allows for a real feeling that you are among the real residents of East Tennessee and provides several noteworthy structures from the Glades Arts District, to old barns and bed and breakfasts....even a few wild turkeys along the way. Inside the cabin, families enjoy all of the amenities that are expected to ensure a memorable stay at Echo Canyon....We look forward to seeing you!
