Situated on 7 acres and surrounded by forest and mountains, this cozy cabin in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, is the perfect place to relax and escape it all. Located a short 20-25 minutes from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, this mountain retreat offers easy access to the best restaurants, shops, attractions, events, and outdoor fun East Tennessee offers.

Upon arrival at this single-level Pigeon Forge cabin, you’ll notice the large, flat, circular driveway — with ample parking for all your needs. The fully equipped and updated kitchen has a new granite countertop and rustic backsplash, and there’s comfortable seating for 6 at the dining table. The gas barbeque is on the huge deck with a picnic table and rocking chairs for friends and family to relax. There’s also a Nordic Retreat hot tub where you can unwind and a brand-new electric dartboard!

At this 1,500+ square-foot Smoky Mountain cabin rental for up to 6 guests, the 2 identical king log bed suites have private baths with jetted tubs and are located on opposite sides of the great room for even more privacy. Each suite has hardwood flooring, a door to the expansive deck, and a hot tub where you can relax and appreciate the spectacular view of Webb Mountain, a breathtaking landscape, and starry nights.

Hike trails on this Pigeon Forge property and retire to the cozy great room at the end of the day, where you can relax by the stacked stone fireplace. There’s a large flatscreen TV, free Wi-Fi, books, and plenty of board games for entertainment. For additional guests, the comfortable sofa converts into a full-size bed. This pet-friendly cabin rental even offers keyless entry, so check-in and checkout are easy and convenient — with no stops at an office.

For a true rustic log cabin experience, this hidden gem will be your new favorite vacation go-to for family vacations or getaways with friends in the Smokies!

Living Room
After exploring the Rocky Top Wine Trail, riding horses in Cades Cove, or shopping at The Island and The Old Mill, return to your secluded cabin in the trees of Pigeon Forge to unwind. Wood floors, walls, and beautiful exposed beams beckon you into the cozy living room. Adding to your log cabin experience are the large windows with tree-studded views and the stacked stone gas fireplace.

Lounge on the sofa with drinks and snacks on the coffee table and press play on the big screen TV to enjoy entertainment while you nosh and chat. A recliner welcomes you to nap anytime or finally finish that book you’ve been meaning to read next to a crackling fire on cooler evenings in the Smoky Mountains. A ceiling fan keeps the space cool in warmer months, and the sofa unfolds into a full-size sleeper.

Ready to dine at your Pigeon Forge cabin in the Smokies? Outfitted with granite countertops, black appliances, a stone backsplash, and blue cupboards, the fully equipped kitchen invites you to cook up a storm, grab snacks anytime, and mix midnight cocktails. Pots, pans, plates, bowls, cooking utensils, cutlery, glasses, and mugs are provided so you can pack light. And there’s a coffeemaker that brews both single cups and pots — super convenient on your Smoky Mountain vacation!

They are also located on opposite sides of the living room for added privacy. Soothe tired muscles in a rejuvenating bubble bath, slip into your PJs, and curl up for a good night’s sleep every night.

Additional guests can sleep on the full-size sleeper sofa in the living room…which means they’ll have access to the big screen TV all night!

Outdoor Spaces
When you’re not kayaking the Little Pigeon River, zorbing around Outdoor Gravity Park in downtown Pigeon Forge, or venturing into the Forbidden Caverns, enjoy the fresh mountain air at your Pigeon Forge cabin rental. From the inviting deck, you can spot Webb Mountain year-round, and this secluded log cabin is surrounded by lofty trees — especially colorful in fall.

Plus, there are hiking trails throughout this 7-acre property, so you can experience even more of what the Smokies has to offer just steps outside. Between trekking trails and snapping photos of wildlife, sit back in the rockers with a glass of wine, hit the bullseye on the electric dartboard, or kick back in the Nordic Retreat hot tub for a spell. There’s also a gas grill and picnic table for mountain cookouts at your Pigeon Forge hideaway.

To note for travel, the gravel driveway is large, flat, and circular, with parking for 4. And there are only 4 steps up to the front porch, which means easier unloading and loading of the cars during your stay.

Plus, you can pop over to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to hike waterfall trails, spot white-tailed deer on scenic drives, fly fish for rainbow trout, picnic by a river, or ride horses. And there are even more restaurants, attractions, and shops to enjoy on your Pigeon Forge vacation in neighboring Sevierville and Wears Valley.

Pick up some of the best Smoky Mountain BBQ at Preacher’s Smokehouse, a barbecue joint run by a local family — it’s “kind of a Pig Deal.”

Zoom on water slides, let the kids splash at water playgrounds, sunbathe by the wave pool, and relax down the lazy river at this mountain water park.
