Absolutely Wonderful, located less than 6 miles from downtown Pigeon Forge, provides distant views of the Smoky Mountains surrounded by old-growth trees. Positioned close to a gated community, this 8-person cabin offers privacy as you soak in these views from your covered, wraparound porch or your bubbly outdoor hot tub.

This cabin’s living room provides exactly what you’ll need with its large leather couch and two oversized chairs.
You can sink into comfort inside Absolutely Wonderful before turning on your 55-inch smart HDTV for an evening of entertainment right at your fingertips.

A pot of chili, oven-roasted turkey, or mama’s meatloaf are a few ideas for a homestyle dinner in the mountains.
Of course, if you cook all the time and want a break, use your time in the Smokies to try delicious downtown restaurants. You can even pick up your food and take it back to the cabin—that way, you get to enjoy mountain views and family time while tasting the variety of flavors in the Smoky Mountains!

"Our stay at "Absolutely Wonderful" was aptly named. Even better than the pictures could capture. We shared a 3 night stay with our adult son and his girlfriend. The cabin was super clean and adorably decorated. Wraparound porch was so enjoyable with cute furniture and fall decorations. We had everything we needed in the way of towels, toilet paper and kitchen necessities. It truly felt like home away from home. Being allowed to bring our little pooch was a big plus. Booking was easy. Instructions for packing and arrival videos very helpful. Also an agent called prior to our arrival and checked the road conditions (paved) which was nice to know in advance. This is a great cabin for seniors as driveway is level and all rooms are on ground level except for game loft. The owner may want to know the kitchen faucet leaks a bit. There were burns on master bedroom carpet that I hope they are aware of so as not to blame us. Not complaining at all, just fyi. We were thrilled with our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again and would recommend highly ."
"We stayed at absolutely wonderful cabin and it was just that. The cabin was very cozy, well maintained and very homey. We all enjoyed the games, hot tub, and swing. The location was close to the dog park and to other attractions yet did not compromise the mountain view and peacefulness. We will be back."
"CLEAN! The location and view were perfect! Our girls trip was "Absolutely Wonderful". We will definitely be return customers."
"This was an amazing getaway and we will definitely be returning at some point."
