As you pull into the drive of Close Beside Me, a secluded cabin tucked away in the forests of Pigeon Forge, a serene Smoky Mountain calm washes over, creating a relaxing start to your family vacation or getaway with friends. Step inside to find custom log work along with updated furniture and décor throughout the home. Exposed beams and hardwood floors add a touch of elegance while a stacked-stone fireplace and rocking chairs elevate that cabin charm.

With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus extra sleeping accommodations, up to 8 guests can comfortably stay at this woodsy abode located in the Beside the Still Waters community. Big screen TVs, a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor dining, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a bubbly hot tub create fun spaces to relax, dine, and unwind. Come one, come all for a tranquil stay in the Smokies at Close Beside Me!

Living Room
With an open concept throughout the home plus high ceilings, Close Beside Me offers a spacious living room, featuring a plush sofa (doubles as a sleeper), 2 armchairs, a gas fireplace, and a big screen TV. Plop piles of snacks on the coffee table, flip on the flatscreen, grab a pillow, and settle in for family night. During the day, enjoy wooded and treetop views through the large windows all around and up above. When evening sets, switch on the floor lamps, whip up a batch of coffee in the nearby kitchen, open your favorite book, and read for hours on end by a mood-setting fire.

Ah, a communal place in every home, the kitchen at Close Beside Me comes fully equipped with all the pots, pans, cutlery, dishware, mugs, and more you’ll need to prepare homemade meals at the cabin. Gather the gang for food fun, like cookie decorating, an eating contest, or midnight snack munching. Boasting plenty of counter space, black appliances, and a white porcelain sink, this kitchen not only functional but also stylish!

Dining Room
Make dining easy as pie with bar seating for 6 right off the kitchen counter. Cushioned seats keep you comfy while chatting and dining with family and friends. And if you need extra seating, the living room supplies plenty of nearby space, so everyone can stay connected at mealtimes.

Ready to hit the hay after exploring Pigeon Forge attractions all day? Head to one of 2 bedrooms — each with a big screen TV and ceiling fan — for cuddles with your sweetheart, followed by oh-so-sweet dreams. On the entry level, you’ll find a king-size bed while the second floor hosts a queen-size bed. There’s even a futon complete with a bedside lamp in the loft so additional guests can have their own space. And don’t forget about the sleeper sofa in the living room, which brings the maximum guest total to 8. Best of all, one of the 2 full bathrooms offers a jetted tub for bubbly spa baths before bed.

Outdoor Spaces
Head onto the deck for morning meals at the outdoor dining tables, gentle sways with a cup of tea in the rocking chairs, and soothing soaks in the steamy hot tub! Outdoors, you’ll also find a charcoal grill, perfect for barbecues and steak dinners. The total seclusion of Close Beside Me means private wooded views (or winter mountain views) and quiet peace are yours! And when you’re ready for a bit more excitement, easily venture to town from the parking area for 2. 

*Gravel road is steep and may be difficult to maneuver for some vehicles.

      We're glad you had a great stay at Close Beside Me! We'd love to host you again in the future!

  • "This was the perfect place to stay. We were secluded and the cabin was beautiful. We considered it the perfect location for Dollywood And the smoky mountains. We also found a wonderful church Zion Grove nearby. We will definitely come back to this exact cabin again"

  • "Looked exactly like the photos and was very homey! We didn't leave for 3 days. We will be returning!"

  • "We stayed in After Creek Delight and Close Beside Me! Both were beautiful, After Creek Delight was little more rustic had a huge yard very private and secluded!! No cell service and no wifi so made it an awesome stay with family games and no social media distractions. Alot of residentials live close to this cabin, you really dont see any houses from the entry part of this very secluded!!! Sleeps 4 so it was perfect for my family but I really think 5 or 6 people would sleep comfortable in this cabin. Close Beside Me was located on top the mountain we were only people that were up on the hill which was nice! Secluded, charming its advertised for 8 people I'm not sure I would be happy with 8 people in this Cabin 6 would probably a better number. It has 2 beds and 2 sofas. It was very quiet the drive right before you get to the cabin is a little steep but my Chevy Cruze went up it just fine! It does have a tight turn around but it you have couple options cause theres 2 places to park. Both Cabins were beautiful and peaceful!!! Liked the location of the Close Beside Me better than the After Creek Delight!"

  • "We stayed in two cabins. One was a wooded view and very secluded which we loved. The second had a gorgeous mountain view and less secluded but was where we encountered some bears! Both cabins were well maintained and we enjoyed our stay. Close beside me was our first cabin and our second was Bear mountain view... ironically where our bear encounter was."

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at "Close Beside Me"! The cabin was really nice and very clean! We will definitely be back! This is the cabin you want to stay in if you want privacy, its at the top and not right beside of another cabin. Peaceful, romantic and perfect for a couple or a family of 4!"

  • "Great cabin centrally located to Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge!"

  • "We used Cabins for You for Spring Break in Pigeon Forge. They made everything so easy and the cabins was just as it was described: clean and comfortable. The app was extremely helpful and we loved that some profits were used to fund mission work. We will use them again."

  • "The cabin was just as presented in the pictures and was very comfortable. The gravel road was a little steep but was not a problem even with mini-van. Enjoyed meeting with the owner, who was staying in another cabin nearby.The wife and I had a wonderful weeks stay for our 20th anniversary and will definitely consider staying here again. Thank you for a wonderful time."

  • "Awesome place to spend with family. Close to attractions and excellent place to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of colorful trees and the mountains. Got what we were looking for."

  • "Loved the privacy and location of this cabin. Enjoyed the hiking trail it was a tough 3/4 mile trail. That was an unexpected bonus. The hot tub was great. Erika and I had an amaizing weekend at this cabin. The place was clean and had everything we needed. What a perfect place ti disconect from everything and enjoy nature. And if you choose to stay here go check out Becs right down the road great little bar. Also the buffalo right up the road are pretty cool!! Thanks for the great stay!!!"

  • "Everything was beautiful just as it showed in photos , the stay was comfortable and relaxing. We didn’t expect the high hills up to our cabin to be so steep ( it was our first time ) but we managed to get use to it throughout our stay. Loved it & hope to be back soon!"

  • "The cabin was clean and well furnished. The setting was very peaceful. The hot tub was just an extra bonus."
