Location: Gatlinburg, Tennessee
Resting on the banks of a babbling creek shrouded in lush forestry, this cozy 1-bedroom cabin is like something out of a Smoky Mountain daydream. Tucked away in semi-seclusion between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Kandy Kisses is a fantastic getaway for couples as a romantic honeymoon. Spend days enjoying your peaceful alone time or an anniversary packed with fun excursions between the two Smoky Mountain cities. Log interiors and country décor transport you back to simpler times while modern amenities provide entertainment and all those daily necessities you are accustomed to, like wireless internet (limited; not for streaming) and a fully loaded kitchen.
Indulge in a flirty night of cooking in with your own groceries and wine from your tour in Smoky Mountain Winery or prepare your Romantic Dinner for Two conveniently awaiting you in the cabin, one of our many gift basket options. Snuggle by a warm fire in the evenings with just the turn of a dial on the stacked stone gas fireplace while watching your favorite DVD movies from home or cable TV flicks. The flat driveway and no steps onto the porch make rolling your suitcases inside a breeze. Your flat yard is perfect for laying out a picnic blanket to read and listen to the sounds of the stream and trees rustling in the breeze while a few hotdogs sizzle on the charcoal grill.
Be sure to pack your favorite little hobbies or books to enjoy while sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch in between morning hikes and dinner in downtown Gatlinburg’s array of fantastic eateries downtown and in The Village. After a long day of exploring Cades Cove by horseback or bicycle, ease into a soothing bubble bath in your bedroom’s large indoor jetted tub before crawling into your cozy log queen-size bed. What better way to relax, play, and explore the Great Smoky Mountains than in a dreamy riverside cabin?
Cozy furnishings, elegant white curtains, and natural wood and stone textures provide a relaxing living room atmosphere while the open concept space makes spending time together naturally easy. Spend quiet, laid-back afternoons and evenings cuddling on the couch while enjoying your favorite TV shows, DVD, or VHS movies on the large flatscreen TV while relaxing after a fun morning hike with Smoky Mountain Llama Trek, shopping for souvenirs in The Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community, and all-day adventures in Dollywood.
Use the large coffee table to play board games together or piece together a puzzle while drinking wine and waiting for dinner to cook in the kitchen’s oven. Don’t worry about spending money on firewood and having to carry it into the cabin, with only the turn of a dial you and your loved one can enjoy romantic evenings by the firelight in the stacked stone gas fireplace.
With every tool, appliance, and dining utensil already stocked in this charming kitchen, you are welcome to cook all your hearty breakfasts, quick lunches, and delicious dinners during your stay in Kandy Kisses. Bring home leftovers from Ole Red, growlers from Smoky Mountain Brewery, and sweet fudge from the Smoky Mountain Kandy Kitchen to store in your full-size refrigerator to enjoy throughout your stay.
Brew your favorite grinds in the coffeemaker before enjoying your hot cup of coffee in the early morning air on the front porch as birds dance about the trees and water splashes along the river bed. The double sink and dishwasher provide easy cleanup after meals to quickly get back to relaxing by the fire or getting out the door to your live show at Sweet Fanny Adams Theater.
Kandy Kisses’ lovely 4-chair set flanked by large windows with wooded views is perfectly dreamy for your romantic dinners for 2. With the extra dining space for 2 more, feel free to invite friends also vacationing in the Smokies to fun dinners and game nights at your cabin.
Dig into stacks of homemade pancakes in the soft natural light drifting in through the windowed double doors and toast to new beginnings during a honeymoon dinner under the light of the chandelier. Plan hikes with a large map of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park while sipping coffee at the dining room table before setting out for the day or answer a few emails while connected to the cabin's wireless internet (limited; not for streaming).
Open the wood double doors to a cozy retreat each evening in the queen-size bed to enjoy restful nights of sleep after full days of ziplining in the Smokies or kayaking along the Pigeon River. Guests will love the convenient touches like closet space to hang dresses and dress shirts for an elegant dinner at Crystelle Creek and bedside tables on both sides so each guest can charge their phones, set their evening tea or glass of water close by, and read under the lamplight before drifting off to sleep.
Use the goodies in your Honeymoon Basket for a luxurious bubble bath in the large indoor jetted tub big enough for 2 for a romantic evening. The in-room vanity provides a well-lit space to primp for date nights while avoiding a fogged-up mirror from the separated shower room. Walk directly to the yard through the windowed double doors to breathe in a few rejuvenating breaths of refreshing mountain air in the mornings to start your day off right.
Let time move by a little bit slower while delighting in the simple moments on the covered porch overlooking the babbling stream and grassy lawn punctuated by shady trees. Break out the lawn chairs and cornhole boards from home to enjoy a laid-back afternoon sipping on cold sweet tea and cooking out on the charcoal grill.
Lean back in your rocking chairs while listening to your favorite podcast or finishing up the last few chapters of your reading obsession in the fresh mountain air. Tucked behind wood courtesy walls, revel in the steamy waters of the outdoor hot tub while cicadas chirp in the trees and the last light of dusk fades through the trees.
Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community
The nation’s largest and oldest organization of independent artisans rests right outside downtown Gatlinburg! Tour the shops of more than 120 craftsmen and women who have preserved art and tradition through generations, and where you can find the best, most authentic souvenirs.
Sweet Fanny Adams Theater
It’s one of the most unique shows in the Smoky Mountains, filled with laughs and over 30 years of entertainment experience. And despite the theater’s age, the humor is young at heart and revisits authentic 1800s style theater for a memorably funny night the whole family will love.
This mountaintop attraction will have you in awe of the views from their pristine gardens filled with blossoms, babbling streams, and the best photo ops in the Smokies! Whether it’s shopping, ziplining, riding the mountain coaster, or getting drinks at the Cliff Top Bar, there is something for everyone in Anakeesta.

"It was an absolutely amazing stay very secluded in the woods. We had such an amazing time. It was very close to everything. We will definitely be coming back."
"My wife and I stayed at Kandy Kisses in Gatlinburg, TN. It was a beautiful cabin, and it exceeded all our expectations. We would definitely stay in this cabin on our next trip to the Smoky Mountains or another cabin by Cabins For You. It was a great vacation. Thank you so much!"
"Beautiful place! Clean and comfy."
"Great AIRBNB and amazing location! Very close to the town but excluded from all the traffic and other people. Had to contact cabins for you to access the code to get inside at check in but the women easily helped us with that issue! Lots of great areas to hike near by and yummy food too! Definitely recommend staying at Kandy Kisses!"
"Great location, hot tub was lovely. Only downside was the code for the door didn’t work when we tried to get in. Had to wait 45 mins to get it reset. Seemed like an eternity with 2 pups after a 9 hour drive but it was thanksgiving and someone got back to me in a timely manner which was appreciated. The cabin was very clean. Bring your own coffee filters. Loved the Christmas tree and decor. Overall, would recommend and would stay again!"
"The cabin was small, but just enough for me and my wife. They had wonderful communication, were very detailed and informative, and even sent us a text message to make us aware of the Christmas parade that evening. I would recommend bringing your own pillow, but otherwise a nice stay with easy access/parking."
"Beautiful cabin and great experience! "
"We had a wonderful getaway at Kandy Kisses! The cabin was clean and cozy with all the amenities we needed. It was far enough away from town to feel secluded but close enough to get to anything we needed with a short drive."
"We have used Cabins for You for several years. We love that we don't have to go to the office to check in and check out. They provide video directions on the cabins. Which has helped tremendously. Their cabins are the best that we have stayed in. And look forward to the next visit."
"Very nice cabin we stayed for a total of 3 days at "Kandy Kisses". It was isolated yet still close to the main road with easy access to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge."
"A nice cabin that was far enough away from it all to unwind and relax but close enough to town to enjoy everything Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have to offer!"
"The Cabin was perfect and everything was great. We enjoyed our time in the mountains and the cabin. We will be returning soon."
"Kandy Kisses was in a great location, quiet, private, and had a wonderful back yard for us to walk the puppies. Although check in is remote, the friendly staff is avilable if you need them. My husband and I are looking forward to staying with Cabins for You again! Thank you for a great vacation location!!!"
"Our first time to rent a cabin so worth. It was an amazing experience. Worth every dollar.
