Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
Get a front row seat to the many beautiful phases of nature when you stay in Making Memories, a quiet 2-bedroom+loft cabin surrounded by Smoky Mountain forestry. It’s also just minutes from downtown Pigeon Forge, so you get peace and excitement! Dive into a good book on the back deck while a soft breeze and subtle rustling of leaves soothes your mind in early springtime. Savor slow, summer afternoons on the front porch enjoying a glass of ice-cold sweet tea as the sun illuminates the trees. When all the leaves have turned bright, brilliant colors in fall, share meals around the dining room table while a warm fire burns in the wood-burning fireplace nearby.
Plush suede couches, a fully loaded kitchen, 2 queen-size beds, and 1 full-size bed provide all the comforts of home, along with relaxing amenities like the outdoor hot tub on the back deck, trees peeking through the windows, and a large private indoor jetted tub in the master suite. Making Memories lends you a divinely cozy, intimate atmosphere you will look forward to coming back to after long, scenic hikes through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and shopping at The Island in Pigeon Forge.
Step through the front door and instantly feel right at home in the warm, intimate atmosphere of Making Memories’ living room. Slide off your shoes and sink into one of the 2 cozy suede couches after a successful morning of shopping all the top brands in the Sevierville Tanger Outlets. On peaceful autumn evenings, spend time around the large coffee table playing your favorite games from home with warm flames crackling in the stone wood-burning fireplace. Let the kids stay up late and watch movies on the flatscreen while grabbing easy snacks from the nearby kitchen and enjoying time together.
The warm atmosphere of Making Memories’ charming kitchen is perfect in those quiet morning moments brewing your coffee or evenings grabbing a cold drink from the refrigerator. From cutlery to cookware, all you need for in-cabin meals is here. Couples can create romantic dinners together, and families can enjoy quality meals – bring your favorite recipes from home – at the dining table. Or you can just pop some leftovers in the microwave or oven and enjoy an easy dinner!
Revisit simpler moments in one another’s company while enjoying a good, old fashioned family dinner around the 6-chair dining set with mountain-cabin charm. Spend hours laughing and playing board games late into the evening with a warm fire in the fireplace before turning into bed each night. Ample natural lighting floating in through the windows lends a dreamy atmosphere to enjoy your morning newspaper or favorite book as other guests slowly get ready for another day of outdoor adventures ziplining or whitewater rafting in the Smokies.
Unlike cookie-cutter hotel rooms, you are sure to feel right at home in each of the lovely, inviting bedrooms and loft during your stay in Making Memories. Amiable mountain-motif décor and the same warm, intimate atmosphere carried throughout each room of your Pigeon Forge cabin provides alluring, cozy spaces to rest each night after fun-filled days in Dollywood, at Foxfire Mountain, or at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. Pull back the covers of your queen-size bed in the master suite after unwinding with a bath in the indoor jetted tub just footsteps away. Escape to the soothing setting of the loft, where a full-size bed awaits for afternoon naps and peaceful nights.
The rustling of leaves moving through the forests surrounding your cabin soothes any restless mind as the wave-like sounds drown out any thoughts of stress and work. Lean back in your patio chairs while sipping on cold drinks and watching the kids play in the flat, grassy yard with the family pup. Flip burgers on the charcoal grill for a laid-back cookout at the cabin during pleasant afternoons while time creeps by slowly with the sun across the sky. After the kids are put to bed, fast asleep having spent all their energy having fun at The Track, slip into the warm, bubbling hot tub for some peaceful moments at the end of the day. The kids will love splashing around in the hot tub while the adults sip on morning coffee and listen to the sounds of birds singing their early days’ songs.
Thousands of acres of untouched forestry mean ample opportunities to see hundreds of birds fluttering in their natural habitats. Bird watching makes hiking more fun for explorers of all ages, and there is even a handy checklist to use while you trek the beautiful trails throughout the Smokies.
The Apple Barn
Tucked right into a gorgeous apple orchard, The Apple Barn in Sevierville is a picturesque renovated cattle barn where visitors can taste everything scrumptious made of apples! Visit the Cider Bar for fresh, delicious apple cider before digging into a mouthwatering treat at the Apple Pie Kitchen.
The Track is go karts, putt-putt golf, and carnival rides all in one stop! With tracks for different ages and rides varying in thrill, The Track is great for large groups and families. Easily spend an entire afternoon playing arcade games, laughing while playing bumper boats, and more!

"We just loved the cabin. It was so close to the middle of everything."
"We loved how easy the check-in and check-out was. The cabin was awesome. It felt like a home away from home. We loved the location, it wasn't too far up in the mountains, but we got the same affect as if we were in the mountains. The best part about it was the seclusion from the hustle and bustle of the town..."
"My family was very comfortable and loved the hot tub. This place comes highly recommended by all of us. The price was great and the cabin was spotless. We did indeed make some wonderful memories and thank you for that as well."
