Incredible stay!!!

Incredible stay!!!

My husband and I stayed 4 nights in this incredible cozy cabin. From the decor, to the cleanliness, to the amazing customer service, it was an all around perfect stay. Kimberly was always available for any questions and gave us great recommendations. The views from the cabin were incredible and we enjoyed a lot of our time on the southern porch. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us Kimberly! 

We hope to be back soon!

A White Christmas it was...

What an amazing Christmas we experienced. We stayed at A Southern Porch for Christmas and it was full of moments that we will treasure forever. The cabin is so clean and well kept. The owners were always available and a phone call away if needed. They really put in every effort to make sure you enjoy your stay at A Southern Porch. The Kitchen is just perfect we got to create a full family meal for Christmas Eve and even had the ability to make amazing cookies for Santa. We were able to keep all our traditions for Christmas morning Breakfast. The kitchen is fully equipped. Just bring your food and necessities. The description provided by the owners is on point. The Keurig machine was perfect. If you enjoy morning coffee while sitting on the porch looking out the mountain bring those K-Cups. Bathrooms were super clean and spacious. The Bathrooms are easily accessible and one on each floor of the house. Washer and dryers were very useful and available to stay clean and fresh. The bedrooms were super clean and spacious. All the beddings were fresh and nicely kept. The cabin has 2 KING size beds one in each bedroom. Beds are very comfortable! The fireplace is absolutely perfect. It is gas controlled with a timer and very easy to use. The cabin also has a heater that heats the cabin quickly and keeps you warm throughout the night. The view!!! difficult to put into words of how beautiful. You need to go and see the Mountain views to capture the breath taking views. Arriving to the cabin is easy, the cabin is located at a perfect level and easily accessible it is not a difficult drive and does not require any major incline drives. (recommend chains in case of snow and for safety). The cabin is located right by Gatlinburg and minutes away from the main area. Everything is easily accessible. If you want to have a lifetime of memories this is the cabin to book. To Kim and Mike thank you for sharing your home with us.

The location, the property, and the view...all perfect! Check-in was supposed to be at 4, but Kim let us know we could check in early at 3. The area is very nice and most of the cabins are up steep drives, but this one allows for a flat parking area which was so nice. The inside was immaculate and well suited for our family. While Gatlinburg was crazy busy, we never felt it at the cabin, so serene, and close to many park entrances. Thanks for a beautiful stay! Will stay here again for sure if we ever get back to The Smokies!

Perfect Getaway

Perfect Getaway

A Southern Porch is the most darling place in the Great Smoky Mountains. The first thing you notice outside is the amazing view and then you walk inside to your farmhouse fantasy. Our family really enjoyed the fact that that place was nice and cozy but there was enough space to be alone if needed. The kitchen is fully stocked which made it easy to prepare meals instead of going out. Our favorite thing was the hot tub though. After a long day of walking or hiking, it really hit the spot. We will definitely return in the future because the cabin is very clean, quiet, and centrally located!

That view!


That view! 

The Southern Porch was a dream for our family’s first trip to the Smoky Mountains. The cabin was immaculately clean with extra sanitizing supplies available. The beds and couches were comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could need. Our favorite part was the view! We loved the swing and rocking chairs on the porch. Kim was awesome and touched base with us several times throughout our stay. She was prompt in answering any questions we had. Highly recommend!

Wonderful Cabin in a great location!

Our family of four had a great stay in this comfortable and cozy cabin. It is located in a quiet community close to everything. The view from the porch is amazing! Kim was a wonderful host and communicated with me several different times to make sure we had everything we needed. The cabin is well maintained and was spotless. We will be back for sure!

Everything we wanted and more

From booking to check in, all the way to check out this Southern Porch Cabin was a delight. The owner, Kim, is such a fantastic person to work with and made sure everything was perfect for us! She checked in a couple days into our stay and made sure we were doing okay and to see if we needed anything else. The cabin itself is beautiful — clean, tidy, well appointed and supplied with everything one could need including a Mountain View that rivals the ones in Cades Cove. Each day we awoke to birds singing in a bright chorus, watching robins hop and play, and even a couple rabbits! In the evenings we were delighted by fireflies glittering among the trees. Thanks for sharing your amazing cabin with us Kim!

Fun time

Had such a fun time at Kim’s cabin this weekend. It was stocked with everything we needed (essential toiletries, pots/pans, clean towels, and even games and movies). We enjoyed the amazing mountain views during breakfast and dinner, and the hot tub at night. The drive to Great Smoky National Park is fairly quick (about 30ish min) and there is even a grocery store nearby. We didn’t realize that the cabin was in a cabin community, but it was still fairly quiet. Kim was super easy to communicate with and check-in was a breeze.

Cozy Retreat

We had such a great trip. It was an amazing couples weekend and we enjoyed downtown and then coming back and relaxing in the hot tub. The beds were super comfy and everyone had enough space to kickback and relax!!

Stellar experience!

Stellar experience!

There are very few vacation properties that actually far exceed their claims. “A Southern Porch” is one of the most pleasurable Gatlinburg experiences I have ever had in my 62 years of calling this “my second dream home”. (Heaven being the first). The cabin is located in a safe, secure community with amazing streets and eye appeal. When you pull up to “A Southern Porch”, you are greeted by great parking and rockers on a porch with a view that borders on museum art. The cabin itself is carefully thought out and attention is paid to every scenario to make your experience enjoyable. The property is immaculate. It is meticulously maintained and “that ain’t no exaggeration”. My wife and I are pastors and look for places to just chill and get away from the pressures of ministry. We will be back for certain...if we can get reservations once this jewel of the Smokies becomes a “cat out the bag”. Thank you so much to the Loughrey’s for sharing their mountain home with us.

We had a great weekend at A Southern Porch. We really liked the new furnishings especially the very comfortable couch and loveseat. We have stayed at this property a few times under previous owners but were never as pleased as we were with current owners. The personal contact with real people makes all the difference in the world.

We had a perfect weekend getaway to the southern porch cabin. It was exactly as described. Clean, convenient and cozy! We even had some snow Monday. The view was so pretty. The kitchen and bathrooms are extremely well stocked. We had everything we needed and more. I love the community. The day it snowed the maintenance people were out checking the driveways and roads. After the snow was done falling, they blew off our car and sidewalk so we could go downtown. Gatlinburg is just a few mins down the road. So we loved this location! We will be back. Thank you for everything.

This cabin was great for two couples and Black Bear Falls is a favorite location. We stay in Gatlinburg cabins at least once a year, and this is the most well-stocked kitchen I’ve ever seen, which made it so easy to cook. We had a great time!

We absolutely LOVED our stay at The Southern Porch. The cabin was very clean and better than pictured! I always struggle when booking and it takes me days to make a decision but I can definitely tell you that this cabin is a “no brainer”. Kim communicated quickly any time I had a question. She even texted us prior to check in to let us know that the cabin was ready before the expected time. The kitchen is stocked for anything you might need. We would recommend The Southern Porch to anyone! We hope to be back again in the future.

The cabin is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location was ideal, close to the park and Gatlinburg, but far enough away from the crowds and traffic. We enjoyed sitting on the wrap around porch and seeing the mountain views. We will definitely be back for another visit.

We had a beautiful stay at the cabin! It was very clean and everything we needed was provided. The cabin has such a cozy feeling, it was so nice to come back after a long day of exploring Tennessee to relax in the hot tub. The view is breathtaking, we woke up everyday to have our coffee on the porch and watch the sun rise. We can’t wait to come back!

A Comfortable Southern Porch

A Comfortable Southern Porch

We enjoyed our stay and found the cabin clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. The entire property was well appointed and well maintained. Upon our arrival we discovered a glitch with the cable and several major networks. Needless-to-say, we were quite concerned that we would not be able to enjoy pulling for our Clemson Tigers against Syracuse. The owners, however, were quick to respond and even followed up several several times to make sure the problem was solved. We could not have asked for more. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend, complete with shopping, hiking, and some delicious steaks on the grill. We would definitely rent again.

Beautiful mountain escape

Beautiful mountain escape

I really enjoyed my stay at A Southern Porch. The space was very clean, light filled and beautifully decorated. The cabin has incredible, clear Mountain View, which can be enjoyed from the rocking chairs or hot tub on the porch, or from the couches in the living room (which were super comfortable). The open concept of the first floor and the large porch made it easy for our group to hang out together. The kitchen was fully stocked with all of the all of kitchen equipment that we needed to prepare meals. The owners really thought of it all to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The location of the cabin was very convenient, as it was only a short drive to beautiful hikes and sights in the national park, and all that Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have to offer. The cabin was easy to find with google maps and easily accessible with my 2 wheel drive vehicle. The owners were incredibly responsive and check in was a breeze. I’m looking forward to returning on my next trip to Tennessee! I would highly recommend staying at A Southern Porch.

A beautiful, clean, well appointed home and wonderful hosts at A Southern Porch!

A beautiful, clean, well appointed home and wonderful hosts at A Southern Porch!

We stayed at A Southern Porch in Black Bear Falls for a week. It’s the perfect place for a family - very safe for kids of all ages. The community is well-maintained and the community pool was nice to have for the kids. The location is FANTASTIC! It’s less than 10 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and several entrances to Smoky Mountain National Park. It’s far enough away that it’s also peaceful and quiet in the evenings. There’s a great ice cream place nearby, a grocery store, good restaurants, the arts and crafts loop, and a few pizza places that deliver to the community. We’ve stayed in the area several times and this was our favorite location! The home was immaculate when we arrived - and so was the porch area. Everything was beyond clean - the hot tub, the dishes and utensils, towels, bedding, and the entire home itself. They drain and clean the hot tub after each visit, and you could definitely tell. The beds and pillows were VERY comfortable, which was a welcome surprise. There is a nice view of the mountains from the porch to enjoy from the rocking chairs with your morning coffee or when playing games or having dinner at the picnic table on the porch. You can see the view from the living room as well, which is awesome. We had everything we needed to start our vacation right away and didn’t need to run to the store for anything other than food. The home is well appointed with more than enough (and great quality) bath towels, hot tub towels, dish towels, washcloths, pillows, blankets, cookware, dishes and glassware that match and are in excellent condition, utensils, and a selection of new spices that we could use. There was even fresh ice in the ice maker! They also gave us a few rolls of toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, and a couple of trash bags. We didn’t have any problems, but Kim called when we arrived to let us know that she was available if we needed anything, and she checked in once to ensure we had everything we needed. The customer service she delivered was stellar from start to finish - always very responsive, kind, and helpful - and we felt very comfortable communicating with her. You can tell that they care about customer service, quality experiences, and making sure that everything is clean and comfortable for their guests. I would HIGHLY recommend A Southern Porch and the Black Bear Falls community! We will definitely return!

Southern Porch happiness!

The Southern Porch is a wonderful home to spend a relaxing vacation in the Gatlinburg area. It is well located and has a great view of the mountains and surrounding greenery. The drive to the house is easy and the streets are all spacious and easy to drive. The house is very clean and well stocked will everything we needed. All the furnishings seem to be new. The community pool area looked very nice although we did not use it. We loved our stay and think it is an exceptional place! Kim, the property manager, is very nice and helpful. Hope that we can visit The Southern Porch again soon!
