About Laura Mendiola

I'm from East Tn and after living in Atlanta for years I wanted a piece of the mountains back! I'm a flight attendant for a major airline and often travel international routes. I'm available anytime by text (the contact phone number) or by email. My husband is a great back up since he works from home and can take inquires when I am in flight. We've been married over 30 years and have 2 grown children. We enjoy or cabin often and take loving care of the antiques and amenities. I am not an absentee cabin owner!

Laura Mendiola purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Laura Mendiola chose Tennessee

I shopped for a year and a half before I found the perfect cabin. I didn't want to risk my children falling off of a high deck and I couldn't take hairpin turns (car sickness!) and I don't like to drive on icy roads. The Crafter's Loop was the perfect area. The cabin is on a perfect lot with an acre of land that is private. I've never regretted my vacation home purchase because it has been just perfect! I've enjoyed conversations with guest and I've kept all of my guest books from day one. I've heard great tales, had poetry and art left in my guest books!

What makes this cabin unique

Location, Location Location! The Crafter's Loop is so close to the Gatlinburg strip and to Dollywood that the location can't be beat. The charm of the Crafter's Loop and my cabin's location on the Loop is just perfect. I offer a great private hot tub, an air hockey table, orthopedic mattresses and an equipped kitchen. The walls have local art and antiques that, again, make The Apple Tree House just perfect!

Love This Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was great and Laura was a pleasure to work with. It was very close to both the arts and crafts shops and the attractions in Gatlinburg. Our family had lots of fun with the Air Hockey table, and loved the hot tub. Very easy to locate, Laura gave us great directions. Look forward to possible stays in the future.

Perfect quiet cabin with fun for all ages.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, this is a wonderful cabin. It is close enough to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge to be convenient, but far enough away to feel like you are in the middle of the woods. The cabin was very clean. The owner was always quick to respond and a delight to work with in making arrangements. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for an affordable place to stay near Gatlinburg.

Our vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

What you see in the description of this vacation cabin is exactly what you get! It was perfect for our 1st family vacation. My husband & I, plus are 3 year old son & our beagle enjoyed staying at the Apple Tree House. It was very pleasant & welcoming. Not only was the cabin nice the area & it was a very short drive to downtown Gatlinburg, which we loved doing daily b/c it was just beautiful! The owner of this property was so friendly and accomadating. It was a true pleasure renting this for a week. We want to return in the fall season sometime. We did get to see snow when we were staying & it was amazing. Personally I had never seen it before so it made our stay extra special. We would highly recommend this cabin to family & friends. Thankyou again Laura for sharing your delightful cabin with us =)
