  • "Great cabin in a gated community. Only real issue was a lack of toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags. Only one roll of TP in each bath room, one roll of paper towels in the kitchen and no extra trash bags. Make sure to bring extra."

  • "The cabin was not far from town and a peaceful place to stay for our Friendsgiving would definitely recommend it"

  • "Cabin looked just like the photos! Great location with beautiful views of the mountains from the porches!"

  • "I can’t say enough about the cabin I rented. Every bed was comfortable. The cabin was roomy. A tv in every room and the plus was the downstairs had another living space. The view of the mountain was awesome. Close to town but yet had the feeling of seclusion. For my family of 2 grown grandsons and their parents, this was a perfect cabin. Cabins for You is a great company to rent from. They are helpful with directions to your cabin and see to your every need."

  • "The cabin was all that we could have asked for and more. Seamless check-in and check-out. Loved it"

  • "Lovely cabin with gorgeous views. Great customer service, they were able to let us back into the cabin after we got locked out during check out."

  • "My family loved this cabin. I believe we all fell in love walking to the front door and seeing the mountain view. The cabin was incredibly clean and had great size. We had a party of 5 and had plenty of room and bathrooms. We enjoyed being so close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg by-pass. We would definitely choose this cabin again for our next trip."

  • "Loved it!!! Amazing view!!!! Very clean and have everything we needed to cook and eat with!!!! Recommend to stay at!!!!!"

  • "Beautiful view! Good layout! Need better instructions on TV/Cable System. Overall very nice! Emphasize All Wheel Drive/SUV needed for steep hills."
