Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
Step back in time at A Secret Romance, where nestled in the mountains, you can enjoy a cozy cabin with soaring ceilings over an open living space, complete with a screened-in porch and your own private hot tub. You’ll be minutes away from all the fun and adventure that Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have to offer, but your private cabin rental will make you feel right at home. A Secret Romance is located at the end of a quiet road and provides privacy along with a peaceful place to relax and recharge.
This 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom cabin includes everything you’ll need for your stay in the Smokies. A fully equipped kitchen will allow you to cook your own meals—maybe a hearty breakfast before a day of exploring or a nice, easy dinner to end the day. Enjoy these meals or a game of cards or Scrabble at the dining table, which seats up to 4 comfortably, or outside on the back porch. Take some time to listen to the evening crickets out on the front porch swing, and end your day with a relaxing soak in the hot tub or in your own private jetted primary bath tub before slipping into bed for a restful night of sleep. It’s the perfect place for a couple's vacation.
One of the most impressive times of the year in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg is during the fall season, when the landscape comes to life as the leaves change to vibrant reds, yellows, and oranges. At A Secret Romance, you will be surrounded by beautiful woods and valleys, so you can enjoy viewing the autumn colors at their finest. You might catch a family of deer or some turkeys enjoying the woods as well!
A Secret Romance provides a special place to unwind, kick back, and enjoy a movie on the TV with DVD player. In cooler months, a fire in the stone fireplace will add an even cozier element to an already-cozy room. The leather couch and chair provide comfortable resting places, and the spacious coffee table has room for snacks, games, or reading material. A second-level sky window adds additional natural lighting to the room, which is open to the dining and kitchen areas. The rustic feel of this cabin and its cozy interior make it a perfect romantic place to slip away for honeymooners or just anyone searching for a nice, secluded weekend in the mountains.
Fully equipped with a dishwasher, stove, microwave, and full-size refrigerator, this kitchen will feel like home. Punched-tin cabinet facing adds a unique rustic-country look to the space. Wooded views out the windows will remind you that you’re in your sweet Smoky Mountain home while you whip up a meal. Or, if you would like to avoid the grocery store, call ahead of time and add a romantic meal for 2 from our list of special cabin rental add-ons. We will stock the refrigerator for you so all you have to worry about is cooking the food. If you don’t feel like cooking, venture out to one of Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg’s fantastic nearby restaurants. There are unique choices in every price range, from Chinese to American to Italian and, of course, that good old Southern comfort food. And don’t miss a stop at one of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg’s famous pancake houses for a comforting breakfast before hitting the road…or the trails.
Surrounded by windows, the dining area holds a wooden table and chairs, enough to seat up to 4 people. Enjoy your coffee here as the sun rises over the mountains, or use the space for a card or board game, or just for a nice meal together in the coziness of A Secret Romance. For an extra special treat, bring your loved one a bouquet of flowers to place on the table or have Cabins for YOU do the work for you. We will add such specialties to your rental as a dozen roses or a bouquet of wildflowers on the table for arrival. It’s a special touch added to an already special vacation!
The primary bedroom just off the living room holds a king-size bed, chest of drawers, and additional closet space. A flatscreen TV hangs in perfect view for cozying up to watch a favorite movie or do a little channel surfing. A sink and large jetted tub are located in the corner of the room, lending to the romance and relaxation you’re sure to enjoy at this cabin rental. Access to the exterior porches is located off the primary bedroom, so you can easily venture out for morning coffee or a breath of fresh air. Call ahead and ask for a special treat for your secret romance—we will set up your jetted tub with roses, candles, bubble bath, cider, and love dust. All you have to do is run the water and enjoy.
A covered hot tub (with stairs), table with chairs, and gas grill are located on the screened-in back porch. You’ll enjoy your evenings here with a glass of wine or just letting yourself rest in the peace of the mountains. Spend some time rocking on the front porch in one of two rocking chairs, or swinging on the porch swing.
A Secret Romance is surrounded by woods, so you’ll feel as though you have stepped back in time to a simpler, quieter place. The privacy and peacefulness of this cabin is unbeatable. Step outside, take advantage of staying in the splendor of the Smoky Mountains, breathe in the fresh air, and let your troubles melt away.
At A Secret Romance, you will feel secluded while still being conveniently located within a short drive of many great attractions. Most attractions in Pigeon Forge can be reached within minutes, or head the opposite direction for downtown Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountain National Park, both within 17 miles of the cabin. Some options to consider:
The Island at Pigeon Forge
Check out one of eighteen exciting restaurants located at The Island, including Paula Deen's Family Kitchen. Or you can catch a fountain show, hop over to Ole Smoky Moonshine for a tasting, browse through 60 shops, and more at this popular Pigeon Forge destination.
The Apple Barn Cider Mill and General Store
Browse through this charming general store before you sit down for a great meal at the Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant. This original Sevierville restaurant originates from a long-standing family farm and serves Southern staples such as fried chicken and pot pie. You’ll be happy to learn that each meal is served with their signature complimentary apple fritters, apple butter, and apple julep. It’s a meal you’ll want to return to time and time again.

"We booked a secret romance for our 10 year anniversary and when we arrived and walked in it was absolutely perfect for us. It was so cozy and clean. The kitchen was great fully stocked with everything we needed to cook with and the grill had propane already even though we were told it wouldn't. I really enjoyed the privacy of the cabin. There are cabins next to it but you can't see them with the privacy fence and the rest is covered by woods. It was so quiet and relaxing and we enjoyed the jacuzzi. The only thing was and we were warned before hand so we went in knowing was that it had well water and the water could smell. I didn't realize how much it would smell. I guess I was thinking just a hint but it was very a strong sulfur smell and because of this we didn't get to enjoy the jetted tub cause let's face it nobody wants to sit in rotten egg smelling water but it wouldn't prevent me from ever returning to this cabin or any cabin from cabins for you. I highly recommend this cabin if your looking for a peaceful romantic retreat. I can't wait to return for another trip and I will use cabins for you in the future."

"Check in and out was great and hassle-free. The cabin was very cozy and perfect for our family of 4. (Children 9yrs and 1yr). It was completely stocked and clean. The bed was huge and very comfortable for a short person it was a little difficult to get into though. The couch and chair in the living room were also very comfortable. We absolutely loved the kitchen table and chairs. The fact that you had to go through the bedroom to get out to the hot tub on the enclosed porch made it so much safer and gave ease of mind for having children with us. The cabin is very sound proof as it rained on our last night there and we didn't even know it and on our first morning there a squirrel got attacked by a bear and we wouldn't have known it if we wouldn't have been on the screened in porch and see it walk behind the cabin. The only thing I would have changed or wish would have been different is the hot water heater isn't big enough to fill up the large jetted tub. It only lasted a little over half way which was fine for bathing the kids but not for a relaxing soak. The shower had great water pressure and heat but the bathroom floor gets pretty wet. The toilet paper holder was a twig from what I'm assuming was from out back. It didn't like to stay on hooks. The drive to the cabin was pretty easy with our Tahoe but the driveway to the cabin is pretty steep. I wouldn't want that drive in heavy rain, snow or ice. This was the 1st time we rented from Cabins For You and we will definitely be returning customers."

"Cabins for You was very helpful, and our cabin, A Secret Romance, was perfect for our honeymoon! It was so clean and nice. I highly suggest them for your mountain getaway."
"It was great!!!!"
"We loved this cabin. Perfect getaway for two. The seclusion was awesome and I spent most of my time on the back porch listening to the rain."
"Great space and location! Secluded and cozy enough while being very close to pigeon forge and Gatlinburg. Everyone in the community was so friendly while we were out walking our dogs. If you're not use to well water be warned that it will smell like sulfer but we didn't mind. Sitting on the porch at night and soaking in the hot tub was a great treat at the end of the night. Will be back to this cabin or another one from Cabins for You once everything opens back up."
"This was such a nice, cozy cabin that was close enough to attractions and far enough to have some quiet time. We really enjoyed our stay here!"

The night life in pigeon forge is very active and exciting it’s plenty to eat at one of the many various restaurants to choose from this was my 1st & definitely not my last time in pigeon forge I definitely recommend that you book with cabins for you if your in the area or just need to get away and put all the worries away."
