Bates Cabins- Smoky Mountain Cabin Rentals are nestled in the
Blue Ridge Mountains forest on part of our 60 acre parcel, this
large vacation home is ideal for multi-family or other large
groups. It is situated close to Cabin 5 which makes it prefect
for family reunions or other large groups that require more
accommodations close by. In addition to the gas BBQ grill on
the covered porch there is a large 2 ft. by 8 ft. charcoal grill
next to the campfire ring.
The master bedroom and bathroom are huge and feature a handmade
rustic canopy bed as well as other rustic furniture pieces.
The dining table offers seating for up to 10 people. Wildlife
that can often been seen from the wrap around porch include
Hummingbirds, deer, turkey, chipmunks, and squirrel. At night,
if you're lucky, you might see the shy, nocturnal flying
squirrel. For the kids this log cabin rental offers a small
yard with a swing set as well as a game table in the lower level
of the house.
For the gem mining enthusiast this log cabin rental is situated
between close to two mines still open here in Cowee Valley.
Sheffield Mine, featured on the travel channel, is about 2 1/2
miles east. Cherokee Mine, where the largest star ruby ever
found in North America was found a few years ago, is directly
across the street from us. Also close to Cabin 4 is Cowee
Valley Lapidary where you can have your gem stones
professionally cut and set.
All of our Smoky Mountains log cabin vacation rentals are kid
friendly and pet friendly. Each of our vacation homes has a pac-n-play,
highchair, and stroller as well as safety gates and/or
child-proof door knobs that restrict their access to stairs.
The gates on the porches act to keep your pets restricted and
safe as well.
