Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
Area: Beside the Still Waters
A cozy studio-style cabin tucked among the trees, Goodness and Mercy is a peaceful Pigeon Forge retreat in the Beside the Still Waters community. When you need to get away from it all, slow down for a bit, and rejuvenate, this lovely Pigeon Forge cabin is a great place to call home. This 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom cabin has room for 4, contemporary style, cozy interiors, and a serene outdoor setting. Its sister cabins are equally peaceful and cozy and are also located in the community. If you’re traveling with a group and need separate but close spaces to stay, also check out Along the Right Path, Comforts Me, In Green Pastures, Lacking for Nothing, My Cup Overflows, and Restores My Soul.
At Goodness and Mercy, you can spend days sipping coffee from the rocking chairs on the front porch, soaking in the hot tub, making meals in your own kitchen, cozying up on the couch in front of the fireplace and big screen TV, or grilling out and sitting down for a picnic lunch at your outdoor table. Plus, extras like a Blu-ray player and wireless internet give you even more ways to stay entertained in the cabin. It’s classic log cabin outside, simple and stylish inside – the perfect mix for a home away from home!
Goodness and Mercy is also easily accessible to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, so when you’re ready to get out of the cabin for a bit, you can explore these 2 fun mountain towns. Pigeon Forge has Dollywood, dinner shows, ziplines and tree-top canopy tours, and outlet shops. Gatlinburg boasts Ober Gatlinburg, Ripley’s attractions, old-time photos, and dozens of restaurants and sweet shops. Both towns host events throughout the year to keep you busy, from races, music festivals, and arts and crafts shows to sports tournaments, holiday celebrations, and parades.
Cool fall and winter nights, hot summer days, and quiet spring mornings…spend them all relaxing in your cozy living room in Goodness and Mercy. Furnished with a comfy sofa, upholstered chair, and leather chair with ottoman, it’s just the place to unwind after a busy day. A big screen TV hangs over the fireplace, so you can hang out here to watch ball games, have a movie night, or let the kids watch cartoons in the morning before heading into town. The living room is also where you’ll find the table for 2, so after preparing meals in your fully equipped kitchen, you can sit down for a quiet meal here. Pop some popcorn, grab a drink, and have a fun night hanging out in this charming cabin in Pigeon Forge.
One perk of having your own cabin on vacation is having a fully equipped kitchen for meals or keeping snacks on hand. The well-equipped kitchen in Goodness and Mercy features a refrigerator, dishwasher, stove/oven, built-in microwave, and countertop essentials like a coffeemaker and toaster. Whether you’re ordering a pizza, making a special holiday meal, or just whipping up some snacks for movie night, the full kitchen is a nice convenience. And when you don’t feel like cooking, you’ll have lots of options downtown. Enjoy a nice dinner out for steak, seafood, or pasta; grab a quick burger, tacos, or barbecue; or treat yourself to some sweet treats like ice cream, funnel cakes, creamy fudge and candy – found in large supply in the Smoky Mountains!
The studio-style Goodness and Mercy is perfectly cozy, with a queen-size bed in its own little alcove. Flip on the wall-mounted lights for late-night reading or call it an early night and catch up on some much-needed rest. You can even flip on the big screen TV in the living room and watch the morning news before climbing out of bed. After a long day hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, come back to Goodness and Mercy for a peaceful night among the trees.
Spending time in the great outdoors is a must when you vacation to the Smokies. Goodness and Mercy offers great places to enjoy the mountain breezes and fresh mountain air. Head outside when it’s nice and enjoy a picnic lunch at your picnic table by the cabin. Bring burgers, steaks, and kabobs to toss on the picnic-style grill and enjoy relaxing days around the cabin. On the inviting front porch, sit down at the 2-person table with a drink or unwind in the rocking chairs here. At the end of the night, climb into the hot tub on the deck to soothe tired muscles and unwind.
Throughout the cabin, Goodness and Mercy offers conveniences to make your stay easier and touches to make you feel more at home. When you want to stay in, pop in a movie in the Blu-ray player with the big screen TV, keep up with what’s happening via the wireless internet in the cabin, or take advantage of the queen sleeper sofa if you’re bringing more than 2 guests.
Goodness and Mercy is located in the Beside the Still Waters community, offering a community fire pit where you can gather on cool nights to roast marshmallows, relax, and chat with family and friends. It also offers easy access to hiking trails nearby. With comforts inside and a relaxing setting outside, this charming Pigeon Forge cabin is perfect for relaxing weekends away.

"Just got back from Goodness & Mercy and we LOVED IT. The cabin itself was adorable and we loved how they decorated for Christmas, it really made it feel like home! The hot tub was excellent, we loved having a fireplace and then a kitchen where we could fix our meals. The cabin was the perfect distance between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg that it really didn't feel like we were driving too much. I wish we could have stayed longer! We'll definitely be back next year!!"
