Updated: Oct 21, 2014
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 39 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.

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.

Perfect Vacation Get Away!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I recently spent a week at the Cozy Nest and we couldn't have been happier. The cabin had everything you would need and was extremely well cared for. It is obvious that the owners have put a lot of love into the place. The porches were ideal for morning coffee or just to sit and relax. The hot tub was wonderful and being in the screened porch made it ideal to use even when it was raining. I can't tell you how many times over the past couple of weeks we have both said we wished we were back at the Cozy Nest.
The Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area is a great place to get away. There is as much or as little to do as you want. The restaurants in the area are great.
Thank you Kathy & Fred for sharing your Cozy Nest. We hope to make a return visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review! Fred and I especially enjoyed reading that you have frequently expressed to each other that you wished that you were back at Cozy Nest. That's what it's all about--offering our guests a cozy, romantic retreat where all their cares are washed away in total relaxation.

We just returned from an overnight trip to the cabin, during which we added luxurious linens and introduced our fabulous new house keepers to the details of keeping Cozy Nest clean and comfortable for our guests.

You are most welcome to make a return visit soon! Thanks again for writing and sharing your experiences at our Cozy Nest.

Absolutely incredible!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted to get away for a couple days and picked this cabin to stay in. We could not be more pleased with our choice! I'm am incredibly picky when it comes to cleanliness. This cabin was pristine clean. I was amazed! And the attention to detail in terms of decorating was impressive. All light switches are labeled so you know what they control. There is really nothing you want for in this cabin aside from food and beverages which is expected. The cabin wasn't rented the day before our arrival (shocking), and Kathy was very accommodating so we could check in a little earlier than the normal check in time. Thank you again! There isn't a view of mountains, but the other amenities more than make up for that! The location is good and there is a grocery store right down the street and you're only a couple miles from the "strip". When we left, my husband said "we'll be back". We will and I'll be telling people about this jewel!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent 3 nights at the Cozy Nest and had a wonderful time. It was our first time visiting the Gatlinburg area, and we could not have picked a better cabin! The Cozy Nest was perfect for our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 young children). The attention to detail in the decor and amenities was impeccable. We loved the bird theme and truly felt at home. We made excellent use of the porches, porch swings, hot tub, and pool. It was such a nice relaxing atmosphere that provided our family a great opportunity to reconnect. We definitely hope to stay at the Cozy Nest again in the future and have absolutely no reservations in recommending it as a destination for others. Thank you, Fred and Kathy!

The best one you will find!

  • 5 of 5
Over the years, I have stayed in many rental homes and this one is by far the best! The owners have done everything possible to ensure guests feel at home and have access to every convenience. The home is decorated nicely and has all the comforts one would have in their home. A comfortable living room, a kitchen better equiped than some homes, laundry facilities, outdoor dining, hot tub, community pool, a front porch and side porch just perfect for relaxing. There is absolutely nothing that this vacation home does not have. And to top if off, the location is fantastic. I highly recommend this rental home to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing such a grand review! We have tried our best to make our Cozy Nest as comfortable and well equipped as possible, and it's wonderful to know that you have appreciated our efforts. We also love the porches around three sides of the cabin, especially the screened-in back porch with the dining table and hot tub. We're glad that you felt so at home and certainly hope that you will make a return visit.

Visit to Cozy Nest

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Kathy and Fred for the wonderful attentiveness and efforts you make to assure guests a wonderful stay at your beautiful home. We enjoyed sitting on the porches overlooking the woods and relaxing at the end of the day with movies and midnight snacks. The beds were comfy for all, everything was clean, well maintained, and nicely supplied for our needs. It was a quick trip to town and hiking in the National Park (and we appreciated staying on the quieter side of Gatlinburg without the Pigeon Forge traffic!). We love the mountains and will be back for another awesome vacation! Thank you again for your hospitality.

We are so happy that you plan to make a return visit! Thank you for writing and sharing your excitement about our cabin.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking time to write such a nice review. We get lots of complements about the comfortable beds, and we have to agree! We also love the wrap-around 3-sided porch with the Amish rockers and swings, so we are glad that you enjoyed them as well. It's all about sharing our beautiful mountain home with our guests, so we are indeed happy that you had a wonderful visit!
We welcome you to return again.

P.S. We just received a beautiful, hand-painted (by Marcus) water color painting of a bird today. Thank you so much! It will be hung up and waiting for you to come back to visit next time.


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!
