About "Sweet Surrender" Gatlinburg Log Cabin

The excitement has now become a reality as you locate the perfectly manicured drive, complete with a split rail fence that guides you along, to your long awaited getaway.

As you walk hand in hand to the steps of Sweet Surrender you are greeted immediately by a view that appears to have been painted just for your arrival. You will first enter the main floor living area that has a full kitchen and the living room. The light shines through the massive windows and lights the space with a warm glow that makes the cathedral ceilings dance with light. There is cozy seating, including a sofa and two recliners, for evenings spent catching up on movies or if you prefer just watching the flames flicker in the stone gas fireplace. The kitchen is fully stocked and houses a table for two. Though a table is provided we recommend the deck table where you are surrounded by crisp mountain air and a 5 star view.

The expansive deck will inevitably become a favorite space for the two of you as you watch the view from the porch swing, with a morning cup of coffee, begin to transform as the hours pass and sunset falls. The hot tub is ready for you to relax and the view is unobstructed from any seat.

The stresses of the world are non-existent as you climb the stairs to your private escape. The two person Jacuzzi has a picture window that frames the view flawlessly and the king size bed provides a perfect vantage point as well. A full bath is available and a flat screen TV completes this retreat.

We invite you to experience Sweet Surrender and as you depart…

May you always walk hand in hand with an abundance of friendship and joy in your hearts. May you weather your sorrows with quiet understanding and a strong foundation. And may you always remember that all is possible when love is given with Sweet Surrender - Kind and True.


Lovely rental

by from Fredonia, NY

We loved our time spent at Sweet Surrender. The cabin is perfect for two people. The views were beautiful from the the entire place (bedroom, hot tub, jacuzzi, living room). The bed was comfortable and so were the coaches and chairs in the living room. While there a belt or switch went on the hot tub and after a call to Mountain Rentals a worker was sent to fix it that same day. He was a very friendly gentleman. We have always received top quality service from this company and have never been disappointed with any of our rental units and Sweet Surrender was no exception! You can tell that the owners of this cabin put a lot of love and care into this home. The kitchen was equipped with everything we could need. The location of this cabin is also perfect if you are looking for something centrally located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

Cozy and convenient!

by from Memphis, TN

My boyfriend and I decided to take a weekend getaway for our 3rd anniversary and this place was perfect! Very accommodating company, prompt and friendly. The cabin itself was a home away from home with all the essentials you'd need to relax and enjoy the scenic views. We plan on coming back and recommending to family and friends!

Wonderful Views!

by from Slidell, LA

This is our second time staying at Sweet Surrender. We stayed here about 10 years ago and loved it so much we decided to return for my husband's 40th birthday. The location is great - close enough to town for convenience, but far enough away that you don't hear any of the noise and still feel like you can enjoy nature. There is another cabin located next door, but with a strategically placed privacy wall next to the hot tub, you don't even notice it's there. The view is absolutely amazing from the wrap-around porch with its swing, rocking chairs and hot tub. The furnishings are cozy and the layout makes great use of the space. The kitchen is well stocked with almost anything you'd need for preparing meals if you want to stay in for the evening. Our only real complaint is that the mattress wasn't very comfortable. It had very little cushion to it and my husband ended up spending one of our 4 nights on the sofa because he simply couldn't get comfortable in the bed. With a new mattress or even a thick foam cover for cushion added, Sweet Surrender would easily be one of the best rentals in the area!

Sweet Surrender was a weekend to remember

by from Pelham, AL

Although my wife and I have been to Gatlinburg many times in previous years, we had not been in almost 10 years and were anxious to get back and see what if any changes had occurred. We didn't really know what was available anymore since it had been so long that we had researched cabins and hotels in the area so we, like anyone Googled. We research quite a bit and took our time and were really impressed with the website and how it worked and it made our research a lot easier. We quickly narrowed our search to 3 or 4 cabins and would have been pleased with any of them but we realized upon arriving that we had made the perfect decision. First of all, directions and access were really easy and when we pulled up, we realized how incredible our view was going to be. When we walked in, it was a "wow" moment! The cabin was immaculately clean, the Christmas tree was up with the lights on, fireplace was on, TV on Gatlinburg channel, room temp perfect.....it was really like a welcome home. When we walked out on the deck our jaws dropped with the view and the hot tub was ready too! Everything in the cabin was great, furniture comfortable, bed was better than I expected, fully equipped kitchen....it was all great! The keyless code lock on the front door was a great idea and worked great for us. If I was going to be picky, I would replace the shower heads with something a little better with not much cost, they didn't produce adequate spray and it took all the hot water to get the Jacuzzi going....a larger water heater would be much better. We didn't want to leave and are already making our return plans. Thanks for an absolutely wonderful weekend get away! Frank and Chris Stanley

Love the serenity

by from Fairborn, OH

Our third time in sweet surrender. Didn't plan it but by fate we stayed on our 30,35,and 40th aniversary. We have stayed in cabins with other agencies and although we have found cheaper, none compare in cleanliness and updates. Also no bugs. Like the area between Gatlinburg and pigeon forge as we spend most time in pigeon forge due to less walking for us older people. We will be back next year, it will be our 16th year in a row.

Sweet Anniversary

by from Louisville, KY

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary. The cabin was perfect. So clean and homey. The kitchen had all the basics needed to prepare meals, the back porch had an awesome view of the mountains and at night we even got to see a few shooting stars. It was a wonderful vacation. The cabin is just perfect for 2. We also enjoyed reading the journals written by past guests going as far back as 1997. I only wish we didn't have to leave. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely Amazing!

by from Mason, OH

We couldn't have picked a better cabin than "Sweet Surrender" for our 10 year anniversary! A beautiful, clean, secluded, romantic cabin with an incredible view of the mountains from the porch. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there and will definitely return to "Sweet Surender"!

Wonderful Anniversary!!

by from Elida, OH

Sweet Surrender was the perfect cabin for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. The cabin was the perfect getaway with a fantastic setting and view. The cabin was easy to get to and close to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the Park. Sweet Surrender was easy to find and the drive up the mountain was not hard at all. The interior of the cabin was beautifully decorated and very clean. The deck with the hot tub and chairs was secluded and offered a beautiful view of the mountains. The shower by the bedroom was very small, but that was the only negative. When we visit Gatlinburg again, we definitely would stay again at Sweet Surrender! Steve and Michele - April 2015

Amazing Getaway

by from Evansville, IN

We decided to rent a cabin for our anniversary and our "new parent getaway". We could not have made a better choice of companies to rent from. Our selection of cabin (Sweet Surrender) was excellent! I had a lot of questions as this was our first time renting & we decided to travel a few days after a major winter storm. The company was very prompt in responding to my questions and clarifying their policies on this situation. I couldn't have been happier with our cabin or the customer service. We will definitely be renting again!

Sweet Surrender


Great view, above average furniture, all amenities good, very comfortable and enjoyable stay, but had to bug out a night early to avoid snowstorm between Gatlinburg and home.


by from Fort Payne, AL

Great cabin, everything was very clean, good location and relaxed atmosphere. My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much.

Sweet Surrender

by from Middletown, OH

This cabin is a great getaway cabin for two. Very close to everything, yet being higher up feels like a totally different place so you can relax. The cabin had plenty of room for the both of us. And the view from the back is awesome! We had a great stay and will definitely stay they again if we go back without the little ones again.


by from Gallatin, TN

Very comfortable and nice cabin with awesome views of the Smokies.

Perfect Cabin

by from Chambersburg, PA

Sweet Surrender is a perfect name for this cabin. The view was great from the hot tub on the back deck. Beautifully decorated. Plenty of towels and pillows on the bed. I was initially worried it wouldn't be as quiet as I had hoped because there are other cabins nearby. (One across the street and one slightly above) However with the layout of the cabin/land you feel as though you are the only ones around. A perfect place for a honeymoon or an anniversary getaway.

Sweet Surrender

by from Greer, SC

Loved it. It was perfect.

Pure Perfection

by from Stanford, KY

I cannot express how pleased we were with Sweet Surrender. It was everything we had hoped it would be, and more! We went for a much needed get away and to relax, and relax was exactly what we did! We didn't even need to leave, and didn't want to. The view was unbelievable. The cabin was very clean. Our only complaint was that we hadn't planned to stay longer. We will definitely be back to Sweet Surrender!!!

Enjoyed our stay

by from Kenner, LA

Sweet Surrender

by from cincinnati, OH

From the second we entered the front door, it was obvious that the cleaning crew spent much time taking care of this unit. It is by far the cleanest rental unit we have rented in Gatlinburg. the décor is updated, the bed comfortable, the deck secluded, and all the amenities sufficient. We have stayed here two years in a row and plan to return again next year. A perfect arrangement for a couple's get-away. Very peaceful and private.

What A Wonderful Time

by from Concord, NC

We have stayed in Gatlinburg several times before,always getting a mountain cabin. This was the first time getting a cabin through Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg. If the quality and friendliness of the service that we experienced,is any indication of how they do business with their customers, you cant go wrong. About this cabin. First...it was just perfect. Again...you cant go wrong. You'll love it. The decor was truly country-like and made you feel right at home. The floor plan and deck were well thought out. The view...gorgeous. The road it is on is a short dead-end...no traffic. I could write a whole long paragraph about this cabin...but all I will say is--- if you are searching for a beautiful cabin, your search ends here. Ron & Tammy Ohnmacht, Concord, NC

Great stay!

by from Brandon, MS

This is our 5th cabin in the past 16 years and we would say this was one of the best cabins. Really enjoyed going directly to cabin and not having to check in at office. Great cabin with a great view!

Wonderful Anniversary Stay!

by from Pasadena, TX

For our 35th Anniversary my husband and I wanted to stay in a cabin in the Smoky Mountains. We absolutely loved the "Sweet Surrender" cabin! The location of our cabin was minutes from Gatlinburg and shopping. "Sweet Surrender" was in a quiet location and was so cozy and comfortable. The decor was perfect with vintage touches as well as country pieces. The mountain views from the back porch were amazing! We enjoyed the beautiful views every morning while drinking our coffee and loved the sunset over the mountains every evening! Our stay at "Sweet Surrender" was romantic, relaxing and such a fun trip to celebrate our anniversary!

Amazing cabin

by from Cameron, NC

After searching many sites my husband and I decided on the sweet surrender cabin and we couldn't have been more pleased with our decision. The cabin is located right between Gatlinburg and Pigon Forge which was super convenient. It had the most amazing view and cozy feel. I don't think we have ever been so relaxed!

Amazing Honeymoon

by from Hurst, IL

I love the Smokies and my wife had never been so we decided this was the place to go for our honeymoon. The cabin was perfect for us. It was the right size for the two of us. We loved the hot tub and the jacuzzi. We sat in the hot tub and watched the rain and the fog on the mountains. The view is amazing. You will not be sorry if you come here for your stay. It made our honeymoon memorable and we are already making plans to return next year. Enjoy!

A couples cabin

by from Birnamwood, WI

Beautiful cabin, spectacular view. Loved being on dead end road,very quiet.

Sweet Surrender

by from Findlay, OH

Cabin was very nice and well taken care of. Interior of cabin was very clean and everything looked fairly new. View from the cabin was great and we really loved the view. would stay in this cabin again.

Sweet Surrender

by from Wyoming, OH

Excellent view (almost scary) from this lovely cabin perched on a steep mountainside. The cabin was clean and felt almost new. All appliances were clean and worked well, and internet access was very good. We would definitely stay here again. One thing to consider: the road to the cabin is steep, so 4-wheel drive would be a good idea if there's snow in the forecast.

Perfect Getaway

by from Lebanon, TN

I rented this cabin for our 22nd anniversary, since we have always wanted to stay in a cabin in the Smokies. I was not disappointed, this was the perfect cabin, spectacular views, relaxing tub, it made our weekend absolutely perfect. The amenities were wonderful. We were even surprised to find birds nesting in the birdhouse on the front porch! I definitely hope to come back next year, if not before! I highly recommend this property!

Great Stay

by from Bowling Green, KY

We had a great time. I would recommend this cabin and company to anyone. We plan to book future trips with Mountain Rentals.

Response from Management

Thank you for spending you vacation time with Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg! We are so happy you enjoyed your time in Gatlinburg and we look forward to your future visits.

Everything We Wanted and More

by from Silas, AL

We booked Sweet Surrender for our honeymoon. Upon arrival, we immediately fell in love with the cabin and its views. The view from the bed in the morning is breathtaking as is the view from the upstairs tub at night. There is nothing more relaxing after a day of exploring the trails in the smokies than coming back to the cabin, soaking in the hot tub on a cold night, and coming inside to enjoy a glass of milk by the fire. I have been to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area on numerous occasions, but this cabin was far and away the best location I've stayed in. There are other cabins near, but from our experience, you rarely see any vehicles, much less people. The only thing that we discovered was that the hot and cold water are backwards in the upstairs tub. In order to get hot water, you must turn the right hand knob with a blue dot, and the opposite is true for the cold water. Overall, it was a fabulous experience, and I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to get away to a quiet place with a view.

Response from Management

Thank you so much for sharing your vacation with us! We have fixed the Hot & Cold water as they had been reversed after recently refinishing the tub, we appreciate you letting us know and hope to see you soon. - Beth

Mr. William Strange

by from Louisville, KY

We loved the setting of the chalet. It was decorated very nice, very comfortable, and very relaxing. We loved that it was sort of half way between Pigeon Forge and Galtlinburg. It was so reaxing. We would have loved it more if it had a first floor bedroom but as far as everything else, it was very nice for the price and came at a much needed time for the both of us. The staff that we dealt with (phone) were very helpful and very friendly. Thank you again

Went For Our Honeymoon

by from Alderson, WV

My wife and I chose this cabin because of the reviews. so I thought I would give one. We used this for our honeymoon and it was everything we thought it would be. Very clean and also easy to find. Also pretty close to either Gatlinburg or Pidgon Forge. I would give this company and cabin a 5 star. Great job Mountain Rentals!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our Getaway

by from Sanford, FL

My husband and I just needed a few days away from our world. We rented Sweet Surrender at first because of the swing and rockers on the front porch. It was everything we expected and more- charming, clean and relaxing. We loved the spa, jacuzzi and the bed was perfect. The decor is precious-country but not overdone. We skipped the tourist stuff and spent time in the mountains looking for waterfalls and enjoying the beautiful countryside. We definatly will be back, maybe to Sweet Surrender or maybe check out one of the other units. Want to bring the kids and grandkids back so will need a much larger unit this summer. Thanks to the owners and the company for such a nice unit and nice people working there.

Sweet Surrender

by from Asheboro, NC

We rented this cabin for our honeymoon and it was perfect. We were able to relax and enjoy being with each other after the busyness of the wedding. The cabin is cozy and the view is awesome :).

annual anniversary trip

by from brandon, MS

Sweet Surrender is a beautiful cabin with amazing views. we usually stay at Ever After but it was booked this year. we were not disappointed with Sweet Surrender. It is very comfortable and has everything you need for an unforgettable experience. We are very happy with Mountain Rentals and will continue to use your company for years to come! Tamatha and Frank, Brandon MS

Sweet Surrender

by from Elkton, TN

Enjoyed our stay and plan to rent this unit again.

Anniversary Trip

by from Rockford, MI

Sweet Surrender was the perfect place to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The cabin was beautifully decorated & furnished, clean as a whistle, and the view was unbeatable. This was our first time renting a cabin, and it was an exceptional value compared to staying in a hotel. After a trip to the local grocery store, we had everything we needed right at the cabin. We made use of the grill and had a majority of our meals right at the cabin. We journeyed into the national park or Gatlinburg just about every day, but were always glad to get back to the cabin where we could truly relax. We don't have a single complaint!

Excellent Summer Weekend

by from Chapin, SC

We stayed at Sweet Surrender over an extended weekend during August 2010. We arrived to a beautiful and peaceful cabin, on a private road that allowed us to escape from all of the daily tasks and headaches from back home. I had decided to rent the cabin as a destination for a weekend getaway on my girlfriend's birthday. The cabin was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The hot tub on the porch looking over the mountains was relaxing and the jacuzzi situated just a few steps up from the bedroom, along with a large window also displaying a view of the mountains, provided quite the romantic evenings. The overall weekend was amazing, all due to having a peaceful and relaxing stay at what truly turned out to be a Sweet Surrender.

Our week in the Smokies


Sweet Surrender and all of the other cabins these kind folks own are a must-see and must-stay. It was all we had hoped for in every way. Having two bathrooms was a nice bonus, and all appliances worked just great. Like Camelot, it only rained at night!We have already started to plan a return trip for next Fall. The Smokies are not to be missed ! Thank you for such a wonderful, beautiful cabin ! Margaret and Robert Hoffner

Sweet Surrender is Sweet!

by from Saint Charles, MO

Most enjoyable, relaxing vacation ever! The cabin was even nicer and more private than we expected. Loved the hot tub and gas fireplace!! Only downfall was the stove. We love to cook, but never have the time in our hectic lives, so we took lots of recipes and ingredients with us to make some special meals. Unfortunately the old electric oven was very difficult to regulate and we had a hard time cooking or baking anything to our liking. Was very disappointing, but not enough to spoil the rest of our stay.

Response from Management

I will have Maintenance put the thermometer in the oven and have it calibrated. Please call us when you run into issues like this so we may correct them during your stay. Thank you for choosing Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg.

Our first trip to the Smokey Mountains

by from Bruner, MO

My husband and I were very pleased with our cabin. It was clean,comfortable and beautifully decorated. The view from the deck was awesome. We would love to come back sometime.

Sweet Surrender

by from knoxville, TN

The name says it all. It is a beautifully decorated chalet with a fantastic view of the Smokies from the Hot Tub on the deck or the Jacuzzi Tub in the lofted bedroom. If you are looking for a romatic and peaceful getaway this is the place to go!!

Sweet Surrender Labor Day Weekend

by from Brunswick, OH

Thank you Mountain Chalets. My wife and I spent our 1 year anniversary/honeymoon in Gatlinburg over Labor Day weekend. The cabin was amazing. Very clean, very peaceful, so many amenities; hot tub, jacuzzi, shower, full bathtub, 2 toilets, king size bed, 2 tv's. Plenty of seating; couch recliner, porch swing. Full kitchen; dishes, microwave, stove, coffee pot, every utensil you would ever need, table, chairs. It was so peaceful up on the mountain and such a great view. A real nice touch was the picture album and diaries. Glad we could add to the rich history of all the families to share the cabin. Can't wait to come back.

Great Stay!!

by from Philadelphia, PA

Sweet Surrender was great. We went there for our honeymoon and had a tremendous time . . . nothing to complain about!

On the very first day we were ready to plan our next trip back. We had a excellent view of the mountains. Our stay was very relaxing. My next visit will most definetly be longer than a weekend.

honeymoon stay

by from Finger, TN

We stayed in the sweet surrender and had a wonderful time. It was very clean. It also was very well decorated and had a beautiful view. It wasn't as secluded as we had hoped but it was built in a way so no one could look over their porch and see what we were doing. This was my first time staying in a cabin and I will definantly go back.

Best Vacation

by from Trafford, PA

We could not have picked a better place for our 10th anniversary. We wanted a relaxing, peaceful vacation - and we received it. The cabin was beautiful, extremely clean and had a wonderful view. The staff was always helpful and courteous. We are already thinking of our next visit.

If your looking for peace and quiet, this is the place.........

by from Ballston Spa, NY

Our stay at Sweet Surrender was very relaxing, just what we were looking for. It had great views from the deck, the hot tub was wonderful, with lots of bubbles. The cabin inside and out was beautiful. The decor looked like it was from out of a magazine. We truly enjoyed our stay and would rent from this cabin company again.

Wseet Surrender

by from Fieldon, IL

I took my wife to Gatlinburg for our anniverary and stayed at the Sweet surrender cabin. Man did I make her happy. Ive got enough brownie points for a month. We are already planing to go back and take the kids this time. This place is clean and very comfy. Its like they let you stay in there own house. Ive recomended Mountain Chalets to all my friends.

by from Caledonia, TN

Wonderful view. Great stay, wish we could have stayed longer.

Sweet Surrender

by from Holcomb, MS

My husband and I absolutely loved staying in Sweet Surrender. We will definetly come back and will refer people to use Mountain Chalets. We enjoyed our getaway and can't wait to return in the future.

Oh So Sweet Surrender

Sweet Surrender was really really SWEET!!!

Great Trip

by from Metairie, LA

We stayed at the sweet surrender for four nights and had no problems with this cabin. We look forward to staying at this cabin again.

A True Getaway

by from Grand Haven, MI

After the traffic and crowds in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge had us ready to seek relief anywhere, we found it at our rental in the hills! Quiet, a wonderful view, tastefully decorated and well furnished, we could have stayed for a month. We were sorry that we didn't allow more time at our cabin but we won't make that mistake the next time. Very satisfied with the whole rental experience. We'll be back!

Sweet Surrender

by from Goose Creek , SC

We stayed at Sweet Surrender for a week. Everything about it was wonderful. When you look at things on the internet, you can't be sure you made the right decision and hope not to be disappointed. The cabin was even better than we anticipated it to be. My husband and I have been married for 23 years and have not been on a vaction by ourselves in about 10. This was the perfect way to spend time together. We loved every minute of it. The cabin was spotless. We loved the decor. The view from the hot tub was beautiful. We even got to meet the owner when we were leaving. She is an amazing woman who really cares about every little detail. We will definitely come back. This was a very special bonding time for my husband and me. Thanks to all who worked to make our vacation so special.


by from Monmouth, IL

I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!! Everything was absolutely perfect! the cabin is gorgeous, the staff was very friendly! it was like a dream!! I can't wait to visit again! hopefully it will be soon!! this was way better than staying in a hotel & about the same in cost. for the little bit extra you might pay instead of a hotel you can have an entire cabin to yourself, complete privacy & a lot of peace and quiet! it's very relaxing, I did not want to leave!!!!
