Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
Area: Beside the Still Waters
A lovely gem in the Beside the Still Waters community, Lacking for Nothing is a beautifully designed cabin in Pigeon Forge with contemporary décor, homey touches, Smoky Mountain charm, and modern amenities. The warm wood throughout the cabin blends with pops of color and just the right amount of mountain motif to make it a warm, welcoming place to call home when you’re away. Inside and out, this 1-bedroom +loft, 2-bathroom cabin for 7 offers comfort, convenience, and plenty of amenities to help you relax and unwind.
Inside, spend days lounging on the sofa in front of the big screen TV (with Blu-ray player), creating meals in your elegant, fully equipped kitchen, and getting some much-needed rest in the master suite’s king-size bed. Outside, sip a cup of coffee as you sit in the rocking chairs overlooking the trees, sit down at the dining table for a nice outdoor meal, or climb into the hot tub to soothe tired muscles after a long drive. Each space has been designed with form and function in mind.
With its location in the Beside the Still Waters community, Lacking for Nothing also boasts sister cabins that are great for groups or families wanting separate but nearby spaces. If you need more space for a group, also check out Along the Right Path, Goodness and Mercy, In Green Pastures, Lacking for Nothing, My Cup Overflows, and Restores My Soul.
Beside the Still Waters also offers a few community perks, including a community fire pit where you can gather with friends and family to chat or make s’mores. There are also nearby hiking trails, so you can lace up your boots and explore the Smokies. Or you can head over to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to hike, bike, go horseback riding, picnic, and more!
If you’re wanting to see what the area has to offer, Lacking for Nothing isn’t far from the fun. Downtown Pigeon Forge and downtown Gatlinburg are both less than 10 miles away. For an action-packed vacation, try zipline and canopy tours, go karts, roller coasters at Dollywood, skiing at Ober Gatlinburg in winter, or a whitewater rafting tour down the Pigeon River! Want a more relaxing week away? Tour the Rocky Top Wine Trail (with free tastings), spend the day shopping at The Island, meet sea creatures at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, catch a dinner show, or just enjoy a leisurely stroll (or trolley ride) along the Parkway.
The cozy living room of Lacking for Nothing is just the place to retreat to after a busy day. It’s furnished with a sofa, leather chair and ottoman, and an upholstered chair in front of a beautiful stacked stone fireplace. On cool mountain evenings, gather with family and friends to chat about the day and relax. Kick up your feet, flip on the big screen TV, and enjoy a peaceful night in the privacy of your own cabin. The high ceilings make the space feel open, and windows along the roof line let in lots of natural light.
The elegant kitchen in Lacking for Nothing provides the tools and space you need for creating meals in the cabin, from special holiday dinners to simple country breakfasts. It features rich wood cabinets, black appliances – a refrigerator, dishwasher, stove/oven, and built-in microwave – and countertop essentials like a coffeemaker and toaster. There is plenty of counter space for meal prepping thanks to the breakfast bar, and it’s equipped with enough dishes, utensils, and glassware for 7 guests.
When you’re ready to sit down for meal, you’ll have a few options. The breakfast bar – which is also great for game-day snacks or a buffet of catered foods – has seating for 4. Or you can take your plate outside and sit down at the 4-person table on the deck. As you eat, enjoy wooded views, fresh air, cool mountain breezes, and the soothing sounds of nature.
A comfortable, inviting bedroom is a must after busy days in town. In the cabin’s master suite, retreat to a king-size bed. The room has a large dresser where you can unpack your things, along with a big screen TV for late-night movies, nightstands, and wall-mounted lights on either side of the bed. It also has its own bathroom with a tub/shower combo, so you’ll have space to get ready before a night on the town.
The second sleeping space in Lacking for Nothing is the loft, which features a twin-over-full bunk bed and a queen-size futon. When it’s not serving as a bed, the futon provides a comfy seating spot in front of a trunk-style coffee table.
When you pull up to Lacking for Nothing, you’re greeted by a charming log cabin tucked among the trees. The first nice outdoor amenity you’ll find is the charcoal grill, where you can toss kabobs, burgers, and steaks on for a cookout. On the other side of the cabin, the deck offers a peaceful place to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.
Red rocking chairs looking out at the trees await you and your morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine. Sit down and unwind for a refreshing start or relaxing end to your day. The deck also has a 4-person dining table, so you can enjoy meals outside, sit down to read, or bring cards or a board game for a family game night among the trees! And of course, end your evening with a soak in the hot tub on the deck.
There is always something going on in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The community calendars are jam-packed year-round with arts and crafts shows, music festivals, holiday celebrations, food and wine events, gallery showings, kids’ events, and more. Lacking for Nothing keeps you close to it all, and the wireless internet in the cabin makes it easy to stay up-to-date with what’s happening during your stay. The cabin also has a Blu-ray player, so don’t forget to bring your favorite movies to watch. And you can pamper yourself a bit with soaks in the indoor jetted tub, too!

"The cabin was very comfortable and secluded. We enjoyed the hot tub and the scenery from the back porch. The cabin is a little out of the way. We would have to plan our day around staying in town so we wouldn't have to make the 25-30 minute round trip back to the cabin."

"We make many trips to the area as we are only 5/6 hours away. The company we normally rent from was bought out by another company so we decided to go a totally new direction and tried Cabins for You. I’m so glad we did. The cabin was gorgeous and everything was well maintained. Also, it was very clean. We stayed at Lacking for Nothing and the landscaping was gorgeous there and they have their own hiking trails with those specific cabins. It was a 20 minute ride into town from our cabin but it took us through areas we haven’t traveled which was new and exciting. May I also add this was a very spur of the moment trip- decided to stay 2 nights and three days literally the day before we left. They gave us a photo frame magnet for the fridge as a souvenir and we forgot it, I emailed them when we got home because we thought it was so cute and thoughtful and were sad we forgot it, so they are mailing us one!!! Wonderful customer service! A very happy customer here."
"Our cabin was very clean, beautifully decorated, well stocked kitchen & in a great location. We were just a short drive to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. We really enjoyed our vacation!"
"We stayed in Lacking For Nothing. The cabin was beautiful and we had the most relaxing time. I really appreciated that the kitchen was equipped with all the essentials. I loved the location, especially the fact that we didn’t have to go too far up the mountain. The owners were very attentive. I called the office regarding a situation and the owner just happened to be coming up a little while after to take care of something at the cabin next door. She immediately took care of our situation before maintenance even had a chance to respond. I would definitely stay here again."
"My husband, myself, and our three children, had such a wonderful time in the mountains! None of us wanted to leave, but all good things come to an end! "Lacking for Nothing", was a perfect cabin for our family!"
