Living Room
Inside Knotty and Nice, expect to find comfortable living spaces with plenty of room for your group of 6 guests. The living room is one of the first spaces you’ll come to, and you’ll immediately love the vaulted ceilings and large windows covering the back wall of this cabin.

Plenty of natural light spills in from the Smokies to brighten up this space and draw attention to the cozy quarters inside. Two suede couches can be found inside the Knotty and Nice living room—a loveseat and a matching full-size couch. Each is a deep red, complementing the natural colors of wood and stone throughout the cabin.

You’ll also find an end table; a large, antique-looking coffee table; and a gas fireplace surrounded by stonework that reaches to the ceiling. Curl up in front of the fire with loved ones during a fall getaway, or you can spend time together watching a favorite DVD or VHS tape on the big screen TV mounted in the corner. Knotty and Nice provides access to a DVD player, VCR, and CD player during your stay, so you won’t need to worry about finding entertainment for a rainy day while you’re in the Smokies!

A getaway to Pigeon Forge isn’t complete without visiting some of the area’s popular restaurants, and with your group, you should also plan for a night on the town at one of Pigeon Forge’s favorite dinner shows. Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede immediately comes to mind, but that’s not the only Smoky Mountain show worth checking out during your stay.

When it’s time to head back to the cabin with your box of leftovers, simply store them away in the full-size refrigerator found in Knotty and Nice. This cabin’s kitchen also comes with a microwave where you can reheat those leftovers for a midnight snack, an oven/stove where you can cook homemade meals throughout the day, and more!

Take advantage of staying in a Pigeon Forge cabin by making omelets for breakfast or spreading out a selection of breads, meats, and cheeses for lunch. Inside the Knotty and Nice kitchen, you should be able to find your basic supplies for cooking—and even a few extras, like a Keurig coffeemaker!

Dining Room
A rustic wood dining set awaits you the dining room inside Knotty and Nice. This table offers place settings for 6, though the cabin is open enough to accommodate extra guests in the living room without separating your group. With the simple yet modern light fixture overhead and twin windows on either side, this dining room makes for a quiet place to get away in the Smokies while enjoying homemade meals in the intimacy of just your group.

The hot tub overlooks the Smoky Mountain trees with a wooden screen on one side so you can soak in privacy.

There’s also a charcoal grill on the wraparound deck at Knotty and Nice. Plan for a barbecue night with the family, especially if you are planning a visit around Memorial Day or July 4th.

Knotty & Nice was more than we could have possibly imagined. View was magnificent, and the cabin was just gorgeous. Hot tub, pool table, arcade game and outdoor firepit were highlights. All amenities were in fantastic condition - we absolutely loved it and highly recommend anyone to stay there. You will not be disappointed. Slept 6 of us comfortably. Can't wait to return!


We stayed here for about a week at the beginning of this month and we can’t wait to go back. The cabin was so clean and comfy. Our husky, Apollo came with us and he even enjoyed it. We traveled from New Bern, NC and are hoping to go again within a year or so. Best sleep I’ve had in years. Our 9 year old and 10 month old slept very well also and it was GREAT! We want to pick a different cabin just to experience another one but we loved how secluded this one was so we might just stay here again.
