Wedding get away

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cabin for my stay while attending my daughters wedding and it was better than I expected. Two of my daughters as well as their spouses and three grandchildren as well as myself, my husband and my son and had more than enough room. We arrived a little early and the cleaning crew was still cleaning and I was very impressed with how well they cleaned this cabin. And the cabin was very well stocked for all our needs. My son is Autistic and his room was upstairs where he said it was very quiet and he could not hear the downstairs commotion. The surroundings were beautiful as well. I could go on forever about the beauty of this cabin. I commend the owners on their decorating. I would definitely love to take my family back one day soon!

A great get-away in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad that we chose Echo Canyon Lodge for our Great Smoky Mountain family reunion. The cabin was lovely with everything we needed to feel and be at home. The guys loved the pool table, and we all loved the jacuzzi on the porch surrounded by tall trees and bird songs. We were just minutes from terrific restaurants and the wonderful Arts and Crafts Loop. Many thanks to Rob and Cindy for opening your wonderful get away to us.

The cabin was great, it had everything you could possibly need, the only thing that was not supplied was shampoo, I'm sure had I looked harder I would have found that also!

The one and only down side was the driveway, it is fairly steep. I suggest you get a running start going up! However, once you make it up the first time, all others will be easy.

I would like to thank Rob & Cindy Hefner for sharing this beautiful place with us. My family and I had a very nice and relaxing time, thanks in part to them!

I would suggest this property to anyone needing the space & tranquility!

We stayed in the Echo Canyon home for our 30th wedding anniversary. From the decor and welcome basket to the extra special anniversary card and flowers this home welcomes you the moment you step inside. It has all the amenities you need to prepare for your day of shopping and adventure. The deck and hot tub were great for relaxing in the evening. Thank you for thinking of the little things needed when someone comes to stay at your home. I usually pack everything but the kitchen sink when we travel. With all you provide, I hardly had to open out tote! Thanks again for sharing your home and for the beautiful flowers. What a delightful surprise.

This is a wonderful place to stay while in the Gatlinburg area; close to downtown and the park. My wife absolutely loved the time and effort that went into decorating the cabin for fall! The cabin was clean, well kept, (we even got to grill some steaks on a brand new gas grill) and comfortable. I would recommend Echo Canyon Lodge for your next mountain vacation!

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!
