Cabin Rental Locations

With thousands of cabin rental options in the Smoky Mountains, choosing the perfect place to stay on your Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg getaway can be daunting. Many have similar amenities – outdoor hot tubs, indoor Jacuzzi tubs, big screen TVs, game tables, and fireplaces – but one of the most important aspects of a cabin rental is location! In the Smoky Mountains, there are many different locations to choose from, from Sevierville to Gatlinburg and all the streams, valleys, hilltops, and wooded corners in between.

Before you choose your home away from home in the Smokies, decide where you want to be. Do you want to be in the middle of the action in downtown Gatlinburg or just minutes from the Tanger Outlets, miniature golf, and laser tag in Pigeon Forge? Will you be spending your days playing at Dollywood or exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park? Or, are you simply seeking a quiet, peaceful escape from the everyday hustle and bustle?

Whatever view or atmosphere you’re looking for, there is a cabin to meet your needs. Read on to learn more about your cabin location options and what’s great about each!

Downtown Gatlinburg

The Perks: close to everything in town, wooded, valley, and stream-side views, easy access to outdoor activities

For some visitors, being just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg is vital. And with the dozens of attractions, candy shops, restaurants, local stores, and annual events located in the heart of the city, it’s no surprise. No matter how many awesome amenities your cabin has, if you want to see what the City of Gatlinburg has to offer during your stay, then you’ll want to be able to hop into town at a moment’s notice. Many of our Gatlinburg cabins boast a location less than five miles from downtown, so you can be in the middle of it all in just minutes. Several cabins are even one mile or less from downtown, so you may be able to walk to restaurants, shops, and attractions! If you don’t want to drive to get into town, check out cabins located in downtown Gatlinburg and the Baskins Creek area. Just be sure to ask about walking – some roads are steep and curvy, making them unsafe for traversing on foot.
