So, you’re ready to head to the Smokies for a weekend getaway or a weeklong vacation with family or friends.  The  next step…where to stay?  We think (yes, we’re biased, but hear us out!) Mudpuppies & Moonshine Cabin is the PERFECT spot for your getaway!   Here’s why:

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!cabin front try2 online edits

Yes, location!  We are located in a resort area just a quick drive from the crazy, busy parkway in Downtown Gatlinburg.  Love the trolley to get around?  Perfect.  Just outside the resort is a trolley stop.  Love to feel like you’re in the mountains but don’t like the drive into the mountains?  That’s us!  It’s quiet and the birds are always singing but the roads are paved and easily navigated, even in the snow.  No 180 degree turns or long gravel roads to get here!  There are great restaurants really close if you want to avoid the crowds of downtown.  Wanna get to the park quick?  We’re 10 minutes from one of the quieter entrance to the park-Greenbrier, just a few miles east on Rt. 321, you’ll be there in a flash!  A few more miles east and your at Cosby Campground where you can find some great trails to hike for a great day trip.  Oh, and the Arts & Crafts Trail?  It’s our back yard!

Plenty of Space

We can comfortably sleep groups up to 14.  One bedroom is a bunkroom-perfect for kids!  Up to 6 kids can share this space and have a TV, cable and DVD player all to themselves.  We’ve got 4 more bedrooms for the adults-2 kings and 2 queens, all with TVs.  Oh and for those nights you need to relax after shopping, hiking and playing?  We’ve got a hot tub out back.  Our kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook a great meal for those nights you want to stay in.  We’ve got plenty of room on three decks to sit and enjoy the sights and sounds…the front porch  looks up to Mt. LeConte!


I love to have my coffee out there and welcome the day as we plan our next adventure.


You can all spread out and have your own space or come together for meals, games  and family time. We’ve got pool & air hockey in the loft, and a great selection of family friendly games or a good old fashioned deck of cards.

When the weather’s hot, we’re a quick walk to the resort pool.  Take a dip or pull up a chair and a good book near the water fall at the pool area.  Relax the day away.  Kids have energy to burn?  Mills park is nearby or head to the resort’s playground area, a quick drive away!
