Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
Take your spouse on a romantic getaway or your family on a spontaneous trip to the Great Smoky Mountains at A Mountain Surprise, featuring a screened-in porch with an outdoor hot tub, 2 flatscreen TVs with DVD players, an indoor jetted tub in the master suite, and a fully equipped kitchen with stainless-steel appliances. Accommodating up to 4 guests, this spacious log cabin in Pigeon Forge is a great place to unwind on the sofa with a comedy classic on the big screen TV, read a thrilling novel in the arm chair by the fireplace, and reconnect with nature on the porch swing. Whether you’re keen for a bit of romance or simply wish to get away from everyday life, Smoky Mountain memories are sure to be made.
Forget your suitcases and head straight for the living room sofa for a snooze after your travels or flip on the big screen TV to catch the big game. With a coffee table and end table nearby, pile on savory snacks and sweet sodas for movie night with the DVD player or bring a few board games to play in the evenings. At night, get a toasty fire going in the wood-burning fireplace…paired with a good book in the arm chair — what could be better? In the early-morning hours, you’ll really appreciate the plush area rug beneath your toes and plump pillows to snuggle on the couch (which conveniently doubles as a sleeper sofa). When the sun heats things up during the day, turn on the ceiling fan to keep things cool.
Mere feet away from the living space is the fully equipped kitchen, featuring stainless-steel appliances for all your cooking needs! Store fresh veggies in the refrigerator, rinse fruit in the double sink, keep ice cream in the freezer, fry bacon and eggs on the stove, bake homemade biscuits in the oven, and pop popcorn in the microwave. There is also a blender for milkshakes and smoothies, a toaster for Pop Tarts and bagels, and a coffeemaker to brew your favorite blends. Bountiful breakfasts, lavish lunches, delectable dinners, and midnight snacks await!
Easily serve up tasty dishes in the open dining area, only steps away from the kitchen. Boasting a wooden table for 4 with cushioned seats and a lovely chandelier overhead, this cozy space helps bring everyone comfortably together for mealtimes. Chat about the outdoor activities experienced in town, discuss exciting plans for tomorrow, and simply enjoy each other’s company — all while enjoying a delicious meal at the table.
Open the wooden French doors to the king-size master suite — complete with a mounted flatscreen TV, DVD player, and an indoor jetted tub (bordered by beautiful stacked stones) in the en-suite bathroom! Spend mornings lounging in bed with your spouse, afternoons napping in peace, evenings soaking in a bubble bath, and nights cuddled up for a film. There are even 2 stained-glass windows that enjoy dancing with light and color throughout the day. Plus, a large vanity and mirror in the en-suite bath make getting ready for the day’s activities a breeze.
Pull up the paved driveway to your new (motorcycle-friendly) vacation home, featuring wooded views all around and 2 dreamy outdoor spaces. Step onto the covered deck for a turn in the porch swing or rocking chairs — a cup of joe pairs really well with the morning tunes of nature. For lunch, whip up a barbecue feast on the gas grill and dine at the table for 2 (with cushioned seats) on the screened-in porch. When dusk approaches, change into your swimsuit for a relaxing soak in the outdoor hot tub (also on the screened-in porch). Should things get a bit too warm, simply flip on the convenient ceiling fan overhead.
Keep clothes fresh for nights out and clean after long days of hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with the provided washer and dryer. Connect with friends back home in a flash with the complimentary high-speed internet. Best part about this cabin? Fido can come, too! Yep, A Mountain Surprise is a pet-friendly Pigeon Forge cabin, making it the perfect place to bring along your furry friend. Looking forward to a Christmas vacation? Enjoy opening presents with your family in the Smokies at this fully decorated cabin!
While staying at the cabin is certainly an option (and easy to do), don’t be afraid to step into downtown Pigeon Forge for a bit of excitement, shopping, dining, and more!

"Great cabin! Cabins For You is the only way to go!"
"We stayed in A Mountain Surprise for our honeymoon in September 2015. Our cabin was absolutely amazing! It was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in for our honeymoon! We hope to return at the same cabin on our anniversary one year! Thank you so much!"
"The service for the rental transaction was fast and easy. The cabin was exactly as advertised. It is a short distance to downtown Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. I like to be away from the traffic and noises of most motels. The location of these cabins works perfectly. Plus you get a fully functional kitchen, hot tub on the screened in porch, rocking chairs on the front porch, and wooded scenery all for about the same price as a motel. The only other thing I would say about the location is that A Mountain Surprise is back in the hills, so expect narrow, winding roads and some steep climbs to get there. It didn’t bother us any; we hauled a 20' Harley trailer back in there. All in all, I would say that if you rent this cabin and you don’t enjoy yourself...the problem is probably you!"
