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.

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

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.

Wonderful cabin up on the mountain!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for my daughter's graduation from Western Carolina University. Afterwards we had friends and family over for a celebration lunch. Although it rained that weekend, the house was welcoming and the hot tub was a nice place during the cold rain. Nina is great to deal with, she answered all of my questions before hand and was available by text while I was there. The house is really nice with a lot of room on the inside. Cable TV, you don't have to bring anything. And it was a great price! Dominoes even delivers up the mountain which surely saved us Friday night! There is a grocery store close by and although the cabin is secluded, it's not far from everything. All in all, a great find and hopefully we will be back one day. I would highly recommend it!
