About Nina Scripps

I built these cabins early 2001/2002 and have enjoyed renting them to guests who need a time out. I have 5 married children who are now getting grandchildren of their own. They all live in Michigan, which is where I grew up. I love the mountains. I have a good life and I'm grateful for all the experiences in my life.

What makes this cabin unique

These cabins are located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and each is secluded and not visible from other homes. The road is a dirt road and cabin guests are the only travelers on the road, so very little traffic.

nice/sweet cabin

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It had everything we needed. The only thing is that the hot tub wasn't ready until late in the afternoon because of some electrical issue, but at the end we enjoyed the hot tub.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post your review for our cabin. I’m happy to know you enjoyed your stay. I apologize the Hot tub was not ready for your arrival. This time of year this cold sure makes it hard to heat up that much water! I hope you’ll find your way back again sometime. Thank you also for leaving your space in good shape for our clean crew! Gratefully, Nina

Quaint and charming but needs updates

  • 3 of 5

First off, Nina was very responsive which is always greatly appreciated. As far as the house, it definitely needs some updates; the oven/stove is extremely old and the knobs to the oven don't have any numbers for degrees on them making it impossible to cook. The eyes on the stove kept going out while trying to use the burners. Beds are hard but that is often just someone's preference so not necessarily a complaint. It just wasn't what we're used to personally. The hot tub worked but had trouble staying hot. The furniture is worn and we unfortunately had an experience with a gigantic spider coming out of a chair in the living room. It's a cute cabin but housing 8 is a stretch in our opinion. We were 4 adults and 4 kids and tight in the small living room. The 2nd bedroom is a loft, so no way to close off from the living room. BEAUTIFUL views and definitely way up in the mountains in the peace and quiet...just needs some updates.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to lodge at our Rivendell cabin. We keep it quaint as majority of our guests like that style but not high Dollar. Apologies for that spider. We treat for bugs inside and out professionally quarterly so no telling how he escaped or maybe came in when you did... thank you for giving him a new home! I’ll try harder next time... happy New Year

Very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

The home is located off the beaten path very quiet and pleasant. The hot tub made relaxing very easy, the beds though a little noisy were comfy and made for a nice nights sleep.

It was a very cute cabin in a remote area. Nina was very friendly and helpful with our stay. We visit the area quite often and will use it again. Loved the way the deck was secure for my dog!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to lodge with us at RivendellCabins Lori. We hated the porches for just that very reason to secure pets and children from forest distractions... I’m looking forward to hosting you again soon. Nina
