About Charlie and Kathy Zigler

Our family of three live in Illinois where we have resided in our same home for 28 years. Charlie is a retired carpenter where he worked for the same company for 33 years. Kathy is a Medical Lab Technician, at one of the areas largest hospitals, and Mara is a college student, studying to be a strength and conditioning coach. Time spent together and with other family and friends is the most important thing to us. Happily ever After provides us the privacy and fun we need to do this.

Charlie and Kathy Zigler purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Charlie and Kathy Zigler chose Gatlinburg

When we visited the Smoky Mountains for the first time a few years ago, we decided then that we wanted to be able to spend more time and possibly retire to this Beautiful, Magnificent, area. After searching during many trips back to the area, we knew immediately when we found our cabin that it was the perfect cabin for us. Happily ever After is not perched directly on the edge of a mountain, it has a yard with a park-like setting complete with patio and picnic table. We feel close to our values here and have the privacy we desire. We are able to spend time together without any outside pressures, or if we want, we can join the many area activities, just minutes away, where we have met people from all around the world.

What makes this cabin unique

We knew after purchasing our cabin that it needed a little tender loving care to make it that special place in other peoples hearts, as it was in ours. We knew immediately that we wanted to enlist the help of a wood-carver friend we had met on one of our trips. Working with him, we created that fairy-tale cabin that had developed in our hearts. Happily ever After is trimmed out in hand carved trim, featuring many of the animals and birds that you will see in the Smoky Mountains. Only Good-Memories can be made at Our 'Happily ever After'!

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 3 of 5

My family and I had a GREAT vacation in this cabin. I only rated it 3 stars because I spoke to the owner about the privacy of the cabin and was led to believe that you were more secluded on the back decks than you actually are from other neighbors. And we love playing pool, but due to the confined space of the room and the pool cues that need repaired or replaced you are unable to play a serious game The cabin though was decorated and set up perfectly, We were really impressed and loved are stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Ben, We are glad that you had a Great vacation, but are sorry that you did were not 100% happy. Compared to many other cabins in the area, our back decks are quite private. We have never experienced noise or other people that we could see from the hot tub. We were there in December, and repaired/replaced all of the pool cues. I will have our caretaker check them, again. Thank you for choosing Happily ever After! With Kindest Regards, Charlie, Kathy and Mara

Loved our stay in this welcoming cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin from the moment we arrived. It feels warm and cozy and the view was awesome. The cabin is in a great location. It is just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and the national park. And if you love the attractions at Ober Gatlinburg it is practically in walking distance. We definitely want to stay here on our next trip.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location to get to downtown Gatlinburg, the Smokey Mountain Park & Pigeon Forge pretty quick! We loved everything about the cabin. It had the cutest decor and very nice views on each level. Only note I would make is to not trust siri cause that girl will take you up and down the mountain trying to get back to the cabin ;) Use the map provided to get to and from.

Thanks so much for letting us enjoy you cabin. We hope to be back soon.

Beautiful Log Cabin with a great view

  • 5 of 5

There were five us for the weekend and we were very impressed with the little touches that made the cabin so homey. The black bears everywhere you turned in the cabin were so cute. We had no problems at all with the cabin. The Temperature on all three levels were easy to manage. Little tough getting luggage up and down the narrow stairs but not a big issue. The drive way was very difficult to navigate upon arrival but once we figured out about backing in - it was a lot easier. The hot tub was amazing. I really think you could get rid of the fooseball or the pool table. The both of them take up a lot of room one or the other would be sufficient.

Will definitely stay there again!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a great experience at Happily Ever After! Whether you're visiting with another couple or your children, the layout of the cabin is great. You have quite a few neighbors but it's still very quiet and peaceful! The best part in my opinion is that you're up in the mountains, but only a few minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. You couldn't ask for a better location! There are a few reasons I rated this a 4 instead of a 5: 1)the water in the upstairs shower never got warm, so we all had to take showers in the lower level, 2) there wasn't anything to start a fire in the fireplace and grill, but the neighbors were kind enough to lend us a lighter :) and 3) the driveway. It's hard to get in and out of, but it was manageable. Only I couldn't imagine doing so if the roads were bad! However, even with these 3 things, we'd stay there again in a minute and I've already recommended it to so many people! It's by far my favorite Cabin (for the price, too) that we've stayed in while visiting Gatlinburg!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I wish you would have called us or our caretaker about the water in the upstairs bathroom. We would have had it taken care of immediately if someone would have called. I'm sorry that there was nothing here to light your fires or grill, we usually keep one of those long lighters here, on top of the mantle, to keep it out of the reach of children, but someone must have taken it, yes we have wonderful neighbors. Driveways in the mountains, can be tricky, we are having someone look at it soon to see if there is something that can be done. Thank you, for your input, and we are glad that you will be back. With Kindest Regards, Charlie, Kathy and Mara
