Cades Cove cabin in the GSMNP

These photographs are of the last cabin before you leave Cades Cove. I can never remember the name of this cabin and I cannot find my Cades Cove booklet right now. I was going to post these tomorrow, but am posting early for Darla.
I stopped to get these photographs because usually by the time I get to this cabin the light is so bright the photos aren't right. With the dreary day the light was still not beaming down even though it was around 2PM when I took these.

I took the first photograph and a deer caught my eye. Started photographing her, and then her buck came out from behind me. I posted those photographs last week, he was the buck with the antlers in bad shape. They were in the woods to the left. I took the splitrail fence photo as I came back out of the woods.
It was hard for me to pick my favorite but I think it is the one above.
It looks like a painting to me.
I can almost see the smoke coming out of the chimney in these photographs. Jen, this is the same cabin you have in a card, yours has more snow. I did try to research this before posting, but all I can find are the cabin rentals around the Smoky Mountains. Next time I go I will have to get me a new booklet. I will then update this post with the name of the cabin.
UPDATE: This is the Carter Shields home place in Cades Cove.

And Darla thanks you! I will take number 2 and number 4 5x7's please.
It doesn't matter if they get here before Christmas or not, I will be ordering more later. Going to do an area on the wall with photos of old buildings that only you photograph. Still looking at your older posts. We just need to make sure I know what the names of the buildings are....if you know. If not then where and when they were taken. Thanks my friend.

This cabin has soooo much charm. The photos give me a warm, fuzzy feeling.

I love that rail fence. The snake ones like that have so much more character than the straight ones.
Thanks for sharing!

OH---I love them all, Leedra. I think your favorite is also mine. It does look like a painting. The snow is such a great addition. I also like the fence one!!!!

The memories these bring back for me. I have gone here so many times. It's been a couple of years now but your photos are drawing me back.

Hi Leedra,
These are so pretty! I love it that there is a little snow!! Can you imagine living in one of these during the worst winters??? I'm sure life was hard for these settlers.

It's been awhile since I've been there, but I am almost certain that the correct name is The Carter Shields Cabin.

I like all of your photos of the old buildings and your work with the black and white and sepia in many of the shots. Well done!

Leedra said...

Willard - I believe you are correct. I will try to research that name and see. Thanks.
