Property Details

Updated: Oct 21, 2016
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 5-10 minutes away. Cozy Nest cabin is located in the closest cabin community to Rocky Top Sports World, only 1 mile away. Winter roads are cleared promptly, for your convenience and safety.

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. When you step inside the front door, you'll feel all stress from your busy life style begin to melt 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, 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 cabin also has beautiful granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms.

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.

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, which owners supply) and dryer. An iron and ironing board are provided.

The French doors in the dining room lead to the covered screened-in back porch with hot tub, ceiling fan, 2 chairs, patio table with 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 4 Amish-made 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 41 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 four 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!

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.

Very Nice & Cozy Place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cozy Nest. The place was very clean, the beds awesome and such a cozy atmosphere. We enjoyed time in the hot tub and in the screened in large porch, super cool! The cabin included everything we needed for cooking as well. Perfect accommodations for two couples. Conveniently located by Gatlinberg and our hiking trails and yet a little ways out of town to get away from the business in town.

Wonderful week with family!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week of hiking, white water rafting, and exploring other Gatlinburg sites. We also took in a couple of shows, The Comedy Barn and The Hatfield's and McCoy's dinner theater, in Pigeon Forge. The Cozy Nest was beautifully decorated and clean. It had everything we needed for the week. We especially enjoyed spending time on the wrap around porch in the many seating areas, talking and reading. The screened in portion of the porch was a great place to eat dinner and enjoy the hot tub. We also spent some time in the pool as it was in the upper 80's the week we were there. I would highly recommend The Cozy Nest if you plan to visit Gatlinburg. If we have the opportunity to return, we would stay there again.

Fantastic place and appropriately named!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home! We found everything exactly as advertised. Fred and Kathy are meticulous about the details, having thought of everything, and the place was spotless. Even though many of the homes are in close proximity to each other it was a quiet setting and felt absolutely private from inside the home and on the back porch. They have made the most of their space with updated finishes and nice touches everywhere you look. It is the perfect size place for one or two couples or a small family. If we return to Gatlinburg this will be the first call we make!

From the time we walked in until we left it felt like home. The owners were very helpful and I loved that they called and checked in with us the day after we checked in. Can't wait to visit 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 thoroughly 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, granite countertops, bamboo floors and new furniture inside and out. This past winter we have had a roof added above the open-corner deck and screened-in an additional 100 square feet to the large back porch. 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. The delightful bird theme is carried out throughout the entire cabin. Cozy Nest is a comfortable, cozy and romantic retreat. We can't wait to return!
