Venturing to the Cosby/Newport area of Tennessee anytime soon? You’ll want to book ahead to stay at the Mountain Farmer tiny cabin or one of the other tiny accommodations which are located on the same property.
Now, that is what I call a view! You are high up in the Smoky Mountains here near the Cherokee National Forest, overlooking the vast grandeur that is the TN wilderness.
The hot tub makes for a warm, relaxing experience no matter what time of year you book your stay. What a spot to sit in comfort and admire a breathtaking vista.
Usually only birds get to enjoy views like this!
Surrounded by trees, you have true solitude up here to enjoy.
What is it like inside this tiny cabin high in the mountains? Let’s find out.
The interior has a “farmhouse” décor theme which is suited to the rustic setting (and also reflected in the tiny accommodation’s name, “Rustic Farmer”). The kitchen is outfitted with everything you need to cook on vacation if you choose, including a stove with four burners. Plates and mugs are provided for you along with spatulas and other basic utensils and cookware. To the right of the counter, you can see the entry to the bathroom.
The owner writes, “Bring your fav Keurig coffee pods. We provide sugar as well as a specialty VPK Ayurveda tea selection and our own mountain honey.”
Honey right from the property! That sounds amazing! You can not only appreciate the gorgeous views outside, but you can taste the delights of the region.
It looks like the roof slopes just slightly to either side, which would help rain and snow to fall off.
The bathroom is beautiful with contrasts between light wood and a dark cabinet under the sink. The monochromatic scheme graces the shower curtain as well, and the round mirror appeals to current bathroom décor trends.
To the right of the entrance to the bathroom, there is a flight of steps to take you to the sleeping loft. The mini-fridge is housed beneath them. Thanks to the fridge, you could cook one big meal to feed yourself for a few days and simply store the leftovers. You could thus take in the experience of cooking in a tiny kitchen without spending too much of your vacation preparing food.
There are some rocking chairs on the ground floor of the house near the door.
The chairs beautifully express the country theme of the home, and are here as much for decorative reasons as they are for practical ones.
Above the chairs is a second, smaller loft, which you can reach by climbing a ladder. There is some extra storage there inside a unique set of drawers. You could also just set your stuff down next to it.
It sure would be hard to climb out of this hot tub after enjoying a nice, long soak and watching the sun set.
It looks like some stormy weather could be on the way. Thankfully, you’ll be cozy and warm inside the tiny cabin.
At the top of the steps, you find yourself at a comfortable bed with a plaid bedspread with more farm-related décor on the walls.
Even though this loft is tiny, it feels “open” thanks to how well-integrated it is with the rest of the layout.
The sunsets of the region are dramatic, featuring gorgeous colors. If you need to drive into town, you can get to Gatlinburg in around 40 minutes.
You would think you would pay an arm and a leg to stay in any accommodation with a view like this—but when you book the Mountain Farmer tiny cabin, you only need to pay $99 a night (as of the time of this writing). Head on over to AirBnB to find out more or place a reservation.
