The Perks of a Smoky Mountain Cabin with Cabins for YOU

Experience Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge in Your Own Cabin!

The allure of nature quietly touches your soul as you drive into the magical setting of the Great Smoky Mountains. Let your heart be excited as you pass the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel of The Island and the charming water wheel of the Old Mill District on the Pigeon River. With all the excitement and beauty surrounding you, stay in lodging that best complements the wondrous aesthetic of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Pull the car into a private driveway instead of perusing the parking lot for a space. Unlock the door with your cabin keycode, the entire unique lodging reserved for you and your family and friends instead of a card key to a cookie-cutter room. Store snacks, groceries, and drinks in the spacious full-size refrigerator instead of trying to pack everything into a mini-fridge. Lazily lounge on living room sofas instead of being confined to a bed.

The list of perks to staying in a Smoky Mountain cabin is extensive! From comfort to privacy, you and your friends and family will fall in love with any of our cabins filled with mountain-living personality, creature comforts and conveniences, and homey, inviting furnishings. While there many hotels and resorts in the Smoky Mountain area, here at Cabins for YOU, we are of the opinion (obviously, the name gives us away) on the best way to experience the Smokies! Down to every last detail, from the views through your windows to the relaxing hot tubs and private indoor pools, we believe your visit to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg is exponentially better when you stay in one of our beautiful Smoky Mountain cabin rentals.

Think you need to stay in a hotel to be close to famous attractions like Dollywood and the Gatlinburg Space Needle? Cabins for YOU offers homey cabins as close as 1 mile to the downtown parkways of both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg! Our more secluded cabins provide all the serenity and peace you want for a relaxing, rejuvenating visit to the Smokies – some far from the hustle and bustle and some just minutes away from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

An Authentic Mountain Experience

The saying goes, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” Well, the same goes for the South and the Great Smoky Mountains! When you stay in a Cabins for YOU cabin, you can experience classic cabin designs like high, lofty ceilings, exposed wood beams, and gorgeous mountain-motif décor. Many of our cabins boast expansive decks with rocking chairs, porch swings, and outdoor dining sets for you to take in serene outdoor views of the rolling mountain peaks, open valleys, and peaceful babbling streams.

Cuddle up in front of dancing flames in the stone fireplace of a cozy living room and gather around an inviting dining room table for cabin-made meals. Get the most out of your visit to the Great Smoky Mountains when you stay in a cozy cabin with all the personality of the region. And don’t forget to look for black bears throughout the cabin! Many feature them in much of their décor, from bedding and curtains to rugs and lamps!

By renting a cabin, you reap all the benefits of a private lodging. Relish in all the little perks such as private parking, full-size appliances, and uniquely homey bedrooms. Our extensive listing of cabins provides you with as much privacy as you desire! If seclusion is not necessarily a priority, book one of our cabins located in a gated community for extra perks like pool and clubhouse access.

For newlyweds and those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city lights and sounds, simply request one of our properties tucked deep into the Smoky Mountains forestry or perched on a mountain ridgeline. You’ll also have perks to yourself like private theater rooms, indoor pools, and game rooms! Let our cabin experts (Vacation Planners) help find the right lodging with our easy Options for YOU feature!

Awesome Amenities
Make your Smoky Mountain getaway an extraordinary vacation you and your family and friends will cherish for years to come with amenities you can’t find in hotels. Instead of accepting whatever amenities a hotel provides, find a cabin with the exact perks you want by perusing our cabin listings or using our simple Options for YOU form.

Swim in a private indoor pool conveniently located in your cabin or spend down time between excursions playing pool and watching movies in your private theater! These are just a few of the amenities you can choose from while enjoying the awesome perks found in every cabin such as full kitchens and private parking. Here are just a few amenities you’ll find throughout our cabins:

  • Fireplaces (wood burning, gas, electric)
  • Expansive decks with seating
  • Outdoor hot tubs
  • Indoor jetted tubs
  • Rec rooms with pool, foosball, air hockey, arcade games, and more
  • Grills (charcoal, gas, and electric)
  • Movie rooms with theater seating and big screen TVs
  • Blu-ray and DVD players with movies to pick from
  • Community pool access (indoor and outdoor)


The Necessities
When you save money on the little things, it adds up! Cook meals in your fully-loaded cabin kitchen to invest the extra funds into meals at The Old Mill or one of the area’s steakhouses. Skip buying paper plates and plastic utensils when grocery shopping, because our cabins provide dishes, cookware, and more. When clothes get dirty while hiking, don’t worry about packing sweaty clothes into your suitcase. Simply wash your clothes in the privacy of your cabin with the provided washer and dryer instead of heading to a laundromat with coins. And you can catch up on emails or just stay connected with Wi-Fi or high-speed internet in the cabin!

The Perfect Location
After an inspiring hike to Laurel Falls, come home to your cozy bed in the cabin just a short drive away from the trail. Open the front door minutes after leaving The Island at Pigeon Forge to easily carry in you souvenirs from the car. Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast who wants to be closer to important trailheads or a foodie with a lodging in close proximity to all of the unique eateries in Gatlinburg, Cabins for YOU has just the right cabin for you! Be close to all the attractions of the three major cities or tucked away near Wears Valley or the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The Views
The Smoky Mountains are undeniably beautiful, from quiet streams and sweeping valleys to the highest peaks. You will, quite literally, not want to lose sight of your natural surroundings when staying in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. But residing in a hotel closes you in and only provides views if your room is on the best side of the building and high enough to see over surrounding buildings.

With Cabins for YOU, you are not only afforded views from your cabin’s deck, but you can also choose the exact scenery to enjoy! Want miles of breathtaking mountain views to wake up to? Or maybe you prefer dense, green forestry where the songs of birds are heard throughout the day. If the soft sound of rippling water is your idea of paradise, there a number of cabins located right on serene rivers and streams.

Great for Large Groups
Coordinating large group trips just got so much easier! Don’t worry about keeping the group together or reserving numerous rooms in a hotel where friends and family are forced to stay in separate rooms. Fellowship together in all the common spaces of your group’s private cabin! Cook together, play in game rooms together, and spend the most quality time together when your whole group can stay in the same cabin!

Cabins for YOU offers cabins for groups of 6 through 50+, varying in amenities and location to fit your group’s needs. And our Vacation Planners can help you plan your next group getaway for occasions such as:

Say your vows with miles of mountain skyline as the backdrop in an intimate cabin wedding overlooking the Smokies. The spacious common areas of our large group lodges foster love and bonding during this special time as a couple. Explore your options for romantic wedding cabins or lodges near any of the numerous beautiful Smoky Mountain wedding venues for easy transportation during your destination wedding festivities.

Church Retreats
Laugh and scream with your church’s youth group as you courageously explore Ripley’s Haunted Adventure. Compete among your rafts during a whitewater rafting adventure down the Pigeon River as you learn to paddle together and keep everyone in the boat! Bring this year’s couple’s retreat to the Smoky Mountains, where you can bond while ziplining, rafting, hiking, riding roller coasters in Dollywood, and shooting zombies at Outbreak: Dread the Undead. Keeping up with all the teenagers is much easier when you stay in one cabin rather than many rooms spread across a hotel! Every member of the church group will easily stay entertained during downtime, too, with the great amenities in our large group lodges.

Escape with the kids for a weekend full of board games and bonding or get an old group of friends to the Smokies to laugh and fellowship to make up lost time. A Smoky Mountain cabins is your best choice for all the reasons above and so much more.
