If you are reading this, chances are you have visited our area, enjoyed the Great Smoky Mountains National Park like millions of other visitors every year and stayed in one of our many log cabins. These rental cabins are popular Smoky Mountain investment properties and can earn their owner substantial income in a short amount of time. YOU could be that person.
Our area draws well over 10 million visitors every year! With world-renowned attractions like Dollywood, Dolly Parton's Stampede, Splash Country, specialty retailers like Tanger Outlet Mall, Smoky Mountain Knife Works and Bud's Gun Shop and Range, the most visited National Park in the nation at our doorstep, and the fact we are the most popular destination for weddings in the Eastern US (second only to Las Vegas nationally), it makes sense that so many people visit us each year. Those people need a place to stay - so why not let them stay in your cabin and pay for it?
Cabins in Sevier County, Tennessee, near Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Wears Valley and Sevierville can provide significant rental income. Many of these cabins perform well and result in positive cash flow for the owners. With a combination of the right cabin, solid advice from one of our experts, and partnering with a top-notch cabin rental program, your cabin can end up paying for itself and ultimately put extra cash in your pocket.
Our area is popular and increasing in value but reasonable prices for vacation and second home cabin properties can still be found. If you look at the available properties below or visit our cabins page here, you will see that log cabins are listed regularly. There are many to choose from but our market is booming so make sure you don't miss your opportunity!
Buying a log home for investment is similar to purchasing any other home; you have it inspected, obtain a loan (or pay with cash), and the cabin is yours! You will have normal utilities like a house and will have to perform some standard upkeep and maintenance. If your log cabin is not already in a resort with a Home Owners Association that takes care of maintenance, you can place your log cabin in a rental program or hire a maintenance business to take care of it for you.
Most owners select a cabin rental company to handle the marketing and renting of their property. The rental company typically equips the cabin with sheets, towels, and consumables like soap, paper towels, and napkins. They also advertise your cabin, book reservations, take care of billing, handle check-ins and check-outs, clean the property, and get it prepared for the next tenant. Essentially, they do all the hard work for you.
What if, instead, you come here regularly on vacation, are looking for a second home as your personal retreat, or just want an heirloom property for family events and holidays? Whatever your motivation, investing in a log home in the Great Smoky Mountains area may be an excellent choice for you.
