Near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park Cosby Campground Entrance. Great mountain views, farms, & wildlife. For things to do, visit us on the web revenuers ridge cabins. Great for couples, solo adventurers, families, groups, and pets. Our property is accessed by a shared right-of-way which crosses the neighboring property. Unfortunately, our neighbors have decided to “protest” the use of our property for vacation rentals by placing unattractive objects and signs along the access driveway.

Revenuer’s Ridge is located between the small towns of Newport and Cosby in East Tennessee, historically considered the heart of the Prohibition-Era moonshine industry (and, along with neighboring North Carolina, birthplaces to the iconic sport known as NASCAR). The house itself is in the foothills of English Mountain, which is so steep at the upper elevations that there are no paved roads. From the front porch, other mountains are visible, most notably in the fall/winter, when the upper elevations of the main Smoky Mountain chain are most visible (due to vegetation). Across the road from the cabin, Bogard Creek flows year round, providing a soothing rhythm to soothe your soul.

The cabin boasts several fruit trees, including peach, pear and apple, which are being nurtured back to health after being discovered nearly overgrown by intrusive vines and growth. Feel free to wander around the trees, and maybe even have a picnic on the hill! All the trees are treated organically, without chemical pesticides.


During Prohibition, Cocke County, Tennessee had the dubious distinction of being considered the ‘moonshine capital of the world’. During this period of history, times were tough, money was tight, and many people turned to ‘shine as a way to provide for their families. They stayed in it after they found how lucrative it was.

Driving skills and a fast car were needed for ‘bootleggers’ to outrun and outsmart the agents of the US Treasury Department, known as ‘Revenuers’. These agents were tasked with enforcing the laws as they related to illegal moonshine production and distribution, and were forerunners of today’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF).

Some of the moonshine runners became known for their outstanding driving skills, and soon drivers were pitting their skills against each other during breaks from their bootlegging activities. A few of these talented drivers played starring roles in the formation of the iconic auto racing sport known as NASCAR.

Even though the old school ‘bootleggers’ and ‘revenuers’ have been relegated to the history books, moonshine is still playing an economic role in the region, this time legally. Numerous moonshine distilleries have opened in the last few years, offering tastings and tours to those curious about the beverage.

The owners of the cabin, Dan and Sam, have both had long careers in the law enforcement field (as well as the military, where they met). In addition, they owned and operated a regional-level NASCAR team for over a decade, with Dan at the wheel, and Sam as co-owner and assistant marketing/advertising (and a little pit crew - she’s good with tires!).

Given the history of the area, and our background in law enforcement and NASCAR, it was an easy step to have a little fun with it, naming the cabin ‘Revenuer’s Ridge’. The bedrooms did not ‘escape’ our slightly tongue-in-cheek treatment, and are designated: The Chief’s Office (master), “The Mounted Division’, and ‘The Detective Division’.


There is a wheelchair friendly ramp from the carport to the cabin’s main entrance - it affords access to mobility challenged folks so they can enjoy our mountains too!

On the porch is a cute little café table and chairs, for those times when you might want to dine ‘al fresco’, and of course, rocking chairs for taking in the views, talking, and relaxing.


Inside the cabin, you’ll see a lovely wooden staircase, leading to the upstairs bedrooms. To your right is the cozy kitchen. Although there’s no dishwasher, the kitchen is otherwise fully equipped, right down to a popcorn popper for movie night! The mobile island in the corner can be wheeled out for additional food prep space, and there’s even a pull out on the back for even more space! The storage area of the island contains the pots and pans, including some nice old cast iron cookware (be sure to visit the Lodge Outlet and start your own collection!).

Just off the kitchen is the living room, with a lovely gas fireplace in case the nights get chilly (or you just want the ambiance of a fire). A big screen ‘smart’ TV is available with a DVD/blu-ray player for your viewing pleasure. Dish Network is provided for both the living room and master bedroom televisions. The living room also has two couches, one of which is a full-size pullout sofabed.

Right off the living room is the first of the two full baths. The main bath has a step in shower with built-in seat, convenient for those with mobility issues. The washer and dryer are located in a closet in this room, and are available for your use (detergent not provided). There’s a nice long counter with double sinks, each with its own mirror, so everyone gets a space to get ready for your adventures!


‘The Chief’s Office’ boasts a king size sleigh bed, large screen TV, and a closet big enough to stash all your luggage, with ample dresser space to store your clothing. The room has its own full bath, which includes a deep jetted tub, perfect for soaking your cares away.

This room has had a remodel, and now has a gorgeous private covered porch, which looks out over the mountain across the way. On cloudy days, clouds sometimes obscure the mountain peak, and the foliage is simply breathtaking. Bogard Creek is easily heard from the deck, and this is a perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or a cocktail and just BREATHE. Feel the stress ooze out of you as you listen to the mountain wake up in the morning, and when it settles to rest at night, while you gently sway in one of our rocking chairs.


Up the freshly refinished stairs are two bedrooms. To the left off the stairs is ‘The Mounted Division’, complete with a horse! (Okay, it’s a rocking horse, but you get the idea). There’s even a bridle, hat and cowboy boots, left there by some revenuer on mounted patrol. The room has a lovely oak queen bed, with an antique dresser and small open closet area for clothing storage. The bedroom window looks out to the same mountain visible from the ‘Chief’s Office’ porch.


The room to the right of the stairs has been designated ‘The Detective Division’. This room is a mirror image of the ‘Mounted Division Room’ in size and layout. It has a lovely cherry queen bed and dresser, and our little version of ‘detective stuff’ to give you that vibe. From the bedroom window, you can look out over the carport and see English Mountain. During the cooler months, English Mountain will sometimes have temporary snowcaps, while at the cabin, it is simply chilly until the sun hits the yard.


Revenuer’s Ridge sits on 2 mostly wooded acres, with a nice yard to play in. You’ll hear chickens - you’re in the country, and most folks in the area have animals of some kind. There’s a fire pit in the side yard for your marshmallow toasting convenience, and it has a tripod grill if you’re into wood-fired BBQ. Behind the peach trees is ‘The Holding Cell’ - a great place to put those rambunctious kids! Just kidding, it’s an old chicken coop where we store firewood that is available for $5 a bundle. There is a charcoal grill in the carport for days you want ‘a sure thing’ grill-wise’ (charcoal and fluid not provided).


Along with the fruit trees, you’ll see honeysuckle, violets, multi-flora, and many other types of flowers and vegetation surrounding the property, and hickory nut trees along the driveway. There’s also some wild herbs, and other flowers. Trees surround the perimeter of the property, affording lots of privacy.


Yes, there are bears in the area. While they haven’t yet ventured up to the house, we know they are out there, so we take a few precautions, such as not leaving food scraps outside where it might prove tempting to a critter in search of a midnight snack. Many area residents allow their dogs to roam free to deter wildlife like bears and mountain lions from getting too close to the property. Most of the dogs are nice, but we recommend that you keep your distance for obvious reasons if you happen to encounter one.


The only internet that is available in the area is via satellite. We have found that is rather expensive and unreliable. Like many other cabins in the area, we do not have internet available. We do have rather good reception for most cell phone carriers and most folks use the internet on their cell phones. FYI, there is no cell phone reception at all in any part of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We do have Dish Network Cable TV for our guests. There is a box behind the TV in the living room that looks like an internet modem, but it is not. It is part of the Dish Network platform.

Cosby, Tennessee, USA

If your vacation goals include a designer commercial cabin in the thick of the hustle and bustle of tourist traffic, and spittin’ distance to the malls, Revenuer’s Ridge might not be your brand of cornbread. However, if you want to rest and recharge in cozy, quiet comfort, while still having reasonable access to visit tourist areas, shopping and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, then we are right up your ‘holler’. What most guests like about our cabin is that is is secluded and quiet from the hustle and bustle of a town or big neighborhood atmosphere.

We have traveled all over the US and this area of the country is one of our absolute favorites. There are plenty of opportunities for adventure as well as relaxation. We enjoy cycling, hiking, kayaking, in addition to several other interests that the area offers.
