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.

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.

Living Room
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.

Outdoor Spaces
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.

Other Amenities
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.

Local Fun

Reviews for Goodness and Mercy

  • "We just stayed at this cabin very recently. The location is in beautiful area, and still very close to town. The cabin is wonderful, and we had everything we needed. My boys loved the hot tub! They pretty much got in it every night. We had a very relaxing stay, and we definitely loved our vacation for our first time staying in a cabin."

      Thank you so much for this raving review of Goodness and Mercy! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed the cabin and area and can not wait to have you plan another trip with us again soon!

  • "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!!"

  • "Staff was so nice during the booking process! The cabin was perfect for me and wife for are romantic getaway, and the prices where amazing! I highly recommend this cabin place rental over anybody else top notch place."

  • "Lovely cabin. Nice quiet area, great for couples. It has everything you’ll need and the hot tub was a great feature!"

  • "The cabin was excellent. The weather could not have been better. I lived the location."

  • "Great location! Cozy."

  • "My wife has never stayed in the mountains so her response to the cabin alone was worth the stay. We were both very impressed how clean the property was. In no time at all we were in downtown Gatlinburg which was a huge plus. I wanted to take the t.v. and hot tub home with us! It was the one cool weekend in May so soaking in the tub was fantastic. We've agreed to spend at least one weekend a year with Cabins for You. Given the reasonable price that's very doable."

  • "This was a spur of the moment vacation and we were more than happy with everything about this cabin! It was better in person! The short drive off the main road to get to the cabin was breathtaking! The cabin was super clean, smelled wonderful and was just perfect for the two of us! We enjoyed the hot tub after a long hike up to see Rainbow Falls! There was so much to do all within a short 15-20 min drive. We went ziplining through the picturesque Smoky Mountains with CLIMBworks, they were so awesome and the experience was even better!!! We will definitely be back!"

  • "The cabin was delightful! It was a cute cabin nestled in the mountain with a nice scenic view. The cabin was clean and easily accessible. The location was perfect for being close to the local attractions yet just the right distance for peace and quiet. The hot tub and the cabin experience was the main reason for the stay and the tub was clean and ready to go when we got there! I also liked the fact that a portion of the proceeds went to ministry work. I highly recommend!"

  • "Even though there are other cabins, there’s so much privacy! Very cozy! Had a fun time"

  • "We had the cutest little cabin. I loved all the Bible verses and prayer request box. The outdoor area was super nice with the volleyball net and picnic tables. I’d definitely stay here again."

  • "My family had the best experience at Goodness and Mercy! Upon arrival (we got in super late - 1:30am) we walked into a beautifully clean cabin and it smelled wonderful. We immediately unloaded our things and hit the hot tub which was super easy to operate! The fire place HAD to be on. It was so cute and cozy! My 4yo was in absolute AWH. I would recommend this cabin to anyone with a small family or 4 or less!!! Enjoy!"

  • "We had never been to this area before. We stayed in the cabin Goodness and Mercy. The cabin was super home feeling and enjoyed the hot tub and comfortable furniture. We can’t wait to come back again sometime!"
