vacation rental description

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!

traveler reviews for this gatlinburg cabin rental

Visit to Cozy Nest

Review submitted: August 11, 2014   Date of arrival: August 7, 2014

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.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: It is great to hear that you love our Cozy Nest cabin for the same reasons that we do! Whether we are eating our evening ice cream snack on the swing on the front porch, soaking in the hot tub before retiring to a very comfortable bed, making the short trip to town or to go hiking in the GSMN Park, or picnicking on the screened-in back porch, we love it all! Your review has brought us such joy! We are so happy that you plan to make a return visit! Thank you for writing and sharing your excitement about our cabin.

Great Cabin love the swings on the porch and the amish chairs.

Review submitted: August 7, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

This cabin was great. It was nice sitting out on the covered porch watching and listening to the birds sing. The beds were awesome. I want to Thank Kathy and Fred for sharing their cozy nest cabin with us. The owners are the sweeties people, I love talking to Kathy she called to make sure we made it there and was ok. When our next vacation comes up will be sure to see if cozy nest is available. Thank you! Kathy and Fred

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with teenagers, sight seeing

Owners 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.

The coziest nest

Review submitted: June 23, 2014   Date of arrival: June 15, 2014

The Cozy Nest is everything we could have wanted. I vacationed with my 2 girls (15 & 8) and my parents who are in their 50's. We loved eating on the screened in porch and listening to the wild life. You can tell that Kathy has put a lot of time, effort and thought into every detail of the house. My mother and I loved the accessories in the house so much that we kept flipping things over trying to figure out where she had purchased them! The house was in pristine condition and very clean. Beds are both super comfy as is the pull out. Kathy contacted us on our first day just to make sure everything was in order and when I did have to contact her she was very prompt and did everything she could to accommodate my special request. The only down side to the Cozy Nest is the steep parking area. Not sure I would recommend the house for older people or with handicaps, the climb from the parking area might be too much. The pool was beautiful and although it's only 7 houses away it is a bit of a climb, not for the weary!! The entire resort was beautifully tended, quiet and easy to relax in.

Recommended for: families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you for your very complementary review! We are so happy that you had a great time at our Cozy Nest. I can't take all of the credit for the "cabin elegance," as I am only the shopper and decorator. Fred does all of the real work, such as the hanging, installation and repair work. We make a great team! We're at the cabin right now working hard to get it ready for our many July guests.

We agree that the hilly terrain here in Gatlinburg is quite different from that of Michigan. We don't advertise that Cozy Nest is handicap accessible (even though it has grab bars in both bathrooms and near the hot tub, chair-height toilets and no steps to access the main level and first floor bedroom). Many of our guests have been over the age of 55 and have really enjoyed everything about the cabin. Prior to booking we always discuss the sloped drive way with our guests and recommend angle parking next to the sidewalk when unloading and re-loading luggage. We have added level parking under the deck, with an over-head mirror and motion detector light to assist with parking. There's a cul-de-sac court for turning around.

We love the Smoky mountains, and we especially love it here at our beautiful Cozy Nest! Thank you for visiting.
