Property Details

Updated: Mar 1, 2015
2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With View of GSMNP, Screened Back Porch With Hot Tub

Come and unruffle your feathers at the Cozy Nest, where you will be just 7 cabins away from the resort pool. Near the resort entrance is a trolley stop for your convenient travel to downtown Gatlinburg, only 5 minutes away. The new Rocky Top Sports World (opening Summer, 2014) is located about 1 mile to the east on U.S. 321. The Cozy Nest is a luxurious, newly furnished and updated 2 bedroom/2 bath cabin with all the amenities for a romantic honeymoon, relaxing couple's retreat or family get-away.

Outside you can read and listen to the birds sing, while you delight in the wooded view from one of the comfy hand-crafted Amish swings or rocking chairs on the spacious, wrap-around (3 sided) covered porch. Picnickers will enjoy the stainless steel natural gas grill and large patio table on the screened-in back porch. There's even a picnic pass-thru window and shelf to make outdoor dining especially easy. At the other end of the screened-in back porch is the bubbling hot tub, which is emptied, sanitized and refilled prior to your arrival.

Indoors you will be surrounded by sumptuous furnishings, beautiful bird-lover's décor, stained-glass windows, bamboo floors, cathedral ceilings, natural gas stacked stone gas fireplace and whirl pool tub. Also provided are three expanded cable televisions, unlimited domestic telephone service, wireless high speed internet and I-Pod docking stations.

The Cozy Nest offers a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, including microwave, smooth cook top electric range, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, blender, toaster, coffee and ice tea makers, mixer, crock pot, dishes, silverware, pots and pans and wine and champagne glasses.

The dining room features a stained-glass window high above the counter-height table that seats 6, along with 2 more chairs located at the breakfast bar. There is a leaf that can be added to the table to accommodate a total of 8 at the table for company dinners.

The downstairs bedroom has a whirlpool tub (with another stained-glass window above) and bathroom with separate shower and toilet area, wall mounted hair dryer, queen bed with steps, ceiling fan, alarm clock/I-Pod docking station, large closet, built-in cabinet and drawers, cedar-lined night stands, cordless pleated shades and 32-inch television/DVD player on a swing arm that can be aimed toward either the bed or the whirl pool tub.

Up the stairs you will find the loft bedroom, which has a cathedral ceiling, ceiling fan, full bathroom (shower in tub), alarm clock, wall mounted hair dryer, king bed, dresser, 2 night stands, chair, 32-inch television and DVD player, cordless pleated shades and large closet. Although it is a loft arrangement, it still offers privacy for the guests.

For those with little ones, a pack 'n play crib, expandable baby gate for the bottom of the stairs and a fold-up high chair are also provided. Guests need only to provide their own sheets for the crib.

Just outside the main level bedroom is a laundry closet with Bosch front load washer (uses He detergent only) and dryer. An iron and ironing board are provided, as well as 3 He detergent pods for the washing machine.

The French doors in the dining room lead to the covered screened-in back porch with hot tub, ceiling fan, 2 rocking chairs, patio table with cushioned seating for 6, stainless steel natural gas grill and private, wooded view. The covered porch also wraps around the side and front of the cabin, with 2 more rocking chairs and 2 swings.

Cozy Nest features a secure keyless lock system which provides a new personal entry code for each stay, with easy access for every member of your family. Your code will be generated and sent to you approximately one week prior to your stay.

Unique to our cabin is a covered parking pad underneath the side porch, which will accommodate a small car or motorcycles.

Our Cozy Nest would be an excellent choice for all of your vacation needs!

About the Owner

My husband Fred and I live in Indiana and have been happily married for 40 years. We are now both retired, he as an industrial maintenance mechanic, and myself as a public school speech/language pathologist. We have been blessed with three daughters, two sons-in-laws and three precious grandchildren (with one more on the way!).

We purchased our cabin with the idea of sharing the beauty of the mountains with others. It’s our hope that you will be able to relax, rekindle your relationships and spend special time together here. We would love for you to be our guests in our Cozy Nest!

Thanks, Kathy

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at this cabin. We loved the location since we could go on many hiking trails without going through downtown Gatlinburg. We highly recommend this property for a fun trip with 2 couples. We had plenty of space and ate both inside and outside on the porch. The cabin is on the newer side so everything was very clean.

Amazingly Thoughtful

  • 5 of 5
Kathy and Fred were amazing hosts despite living out of state. My girlfriend and I stayed at the Cozy Nest for Valentine's Day weekend. Upon arrival there were flowers with a kind note welcoming us to their home away from home. It was awesome how organized the rental process was. They put together great directional information prior to your stay so you feel comfortable finding the cabin and are already familiarized with scenic Gatlinburg which is just a 5-10 minute drive from the cabin. The cabin itself was very "cozy" as the name would suggest. All the light switches were labeled and instructions in regards to the gas grill, gas fireplace, and hotub were also easy to follow. All the attention to detail really let us know Kathy and Fred cared about us enjoying our stay. They already thought of everything, but in the off chance you do have a question in regards to the property or Gatlinburg they are only a text message or phone call away to help you. All in all I would recommend the Cozy Nest to anyone for the hospitality of the fine couple who own it, the awesome location, and homie yet romantic getaway feel.

From the beautiful décor to the wonderful hot tub, from the warm and inviting gas log fireplace to the sumptuously comfortable beds, this cute cabin had absolutely everything we wanted for our extended weekend getaway. All the comforts of home plus a hot tub on the private screened porch! We plan to return soon! Thanks again!

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We loved everything about the place. The cabin was beautiful and very close to the downtown area. Kathy the owner was very nice and helpful. The cabin was very clean and beautifully decorated. Very cozy and warming because of the fire place. The hot tub was fun to use and also clean. I highly recommend it to everyone and I would definitely go back.

Highly Recommend a stay at the Cozy Nest!

We love a yearly late fall trip to the Gatlinburg area and were very excited to find the listing for this cabin. Everything Kathy shared about the cabin beforehand was exactly as described. Cleanliness is huge on our list and this cabin was spotless! We enjoyed all of the bird décor and lovely furnishings...very cozy indeed! Warming by the fireplace was especially enjoyable as we happened to arrive to some below normal temps! We look forward to another stay and will definitely refer friends and relatives!
The special personal touches are really nice. Thank you, Kathy and Fred for opening up your "home away from home" for others to enjoy! Well done!

We stayed at the Cozy Nest for our Honeymoon and absolutely loved it! It has beautiful decor which I LOVED! It was in an awesome location! I think it took us at the most 10 minutes to drive to the heart of Downtown! The owners are great! (They also sent us flowers wishing us good luck for the future) It was very sweet! The cabin was VERY clean and perfect! Can't wait to stay again!

From the Owner

Loving to tour the curvy roads in the Smoky Mountains, we have spent many, many vacations here. We enjoy riding our sidecar rig, hiking on the trails in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, watching the shows at Dollywood and of course, shopping in the unique stores. Best of all is the spendor of nature here in the beautiful mountains! While celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary in Gatlinburg, we purchased a cabin of our very own. Our home in Indiana had become an empty nest, so we had decided to create our Cozy Nest in Tennessee. We chose our cabin because we simply fell in love with it. It needed lots of attention, but we could envision its potential. Mountain Shadows Resort had a quaint, Alpine village appearance, which was a part of the cabin’s charm. The cabins are nestled near one another, yet they maintain privacy, especially with the woods on the sides and in back. We have worked hard to update, refurbish and repair our cabin. We trust you will love it as much as we (and our daughters and their families) do!

From the Owner

Our Cozy Nest has been completely updated from top to bottom. It has a recently re-shingled roof, stainless steel appliances, bamboo floors and new furniture inside and out. We especially enjoy sitting on the swing on the covered front porch in the mornings and soaking in the hot tub on the screened back porch at night. Rather than the typical bear, fishing or elk theme, we've opted to tastefully decorate with a song bird theme. Cozy Nest is a comfortable, cozy and romantic retreat. We can't wait to return!
