Host a special holiday gathering, family reunion, or bridal getaway in this beautiful cabin rental with enough space to accommodate 13 guests who will always be easily entertained in the rec room with a full wet bar, arcade games, a PlayStation 3, and pool table. Spend the evening hours unwinding and hanging out on the back decks, taking in the expansive star-studded night skies from the log rocking chairs or the bubbly outdoor hot tub.

Your stay in this Pigeon Forge cabin offers all the comforts of home and thoughtful extras, making your visit even more relaxing and stress free. The fully loaded kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, a double oven, spacious granite countertops, and a sleek kitchen island with a built-in stovetop, providing a luxurious space for cooking large meals for any occasion with family and friends.

Get those work emails written while connected to the cabin’s Wi-Fi and re-wear your favorite outfits after using the convenient washer and dryer. You will even enjoy self check-in with the keyless entry. 

With over a dozen friends or family members commuting to the cabin, parking is a concern; luckily, this Pigeon Forge cabin rental rests on its own 1-acre lot with a flat, paved driveway - that's motorcycle friendly! With so many amenities, incredible mountain views, and a convenient location within a gated community near hundreds of Pigeon Forge attractions, this cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains is your next great Smoky Mountain vacation. 

Living Room
Upon entering Once Upon A View, you will be greeted by a large, impressive windowed wall overlooking mountain views resting in the distance, a gorgeous backdrop to the inviting living room with elegant décor. Oversized, plush leather sofas provide ample space for guests to lounge around while sipping on glasses of local wine as a warm fire dances beyond the hearth. 

Kick back with a cold drink during laid-back cabin days while your favorite team plays on the large flatscreen TV mounted on the beautiful stacked-stone fireplace. Spend long, fun-filled evenings in the open-concept living room playing charades, refilling drinks and grabbing snacks in the kitchen, and grabbing fresh air on the deck as laughter echoes into the cathedral ceilings.

Fall in love with cooking in the alluring, fully loaded kitchen with sparkling granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances set into all-wood interiors. Prepare large meals with friends, chopping veggies and tenderizing meats on the spacious counter before popping in a casserole in one oven and turkey in the second, making big holiday and special occasions that much easier!

The stone-accented breakfast bar is perfect for self-serve buffets, additional dinner seating, and a peaceful spot to enjoy your freshly brewed coffee while uploading your photos from Dolly Parton’s Stampede. Store your leftovers, groceries, sweet treats, and dessert wines in the large side-by-side refrigerator and grab water in just a few moments during fun family games from the convenient water and ice dispenser on the freezer door.

Dining Room
Gather around the elegant dining room table in the evenings to celebrate family over mouthwatering meals, toast to the bride-to-be while sipping wine and playing bachelorette games, and reconnecting with friends during holiday gatherings. Dine in the dreamy natural lighting pouring in through the large windows for breakfast and under the warm light of the exquisite chandelier during formal dinners. Clear the large wood table after dinner and settle back into your leather seating to dig into desserts and play card games late into the evenings, before turning into each cozy bedroom for the night.

Each guest will love their homey suites boasting wooded mountain views to wake up to each day, cozy king-size beds, and large jetted tubs and walk-in showers in 3 bathrooms. Warm and inviting, crawl under the covers after long days of hiking with llamas through the Smoky Mountains and turn on the flatscreen TV to help you unwind or read your current book obsession in the soft light of the bedside table lamp before slowly drifting off to sleep.

In the primary suite on the entry level, pull up a chair to warm your feet by the electric fire while scrolling through your favorite pictures from the day’s adventure at Anakeesta. Draw the elegant curtains found in each room to greet the morning mountain views before stepping out your bedroom’s door leading to the deck to breathe in full lungs of fresh, crisp air. The home also has 1 twin sleeper sofa for additional space. 

Rec Room
Adjacent to another entire second living room area on the lower level, Once Upon A View boasts an elegant yet fun rec room with entertainment every guest will love. Gaze across beautiful mountain views through the large windows stretching from floor to ceiling before taking your shots during a game of 8-ball on the clawfoot pool table. 

Sink into the plush, oversized sectional sofa to play your favorite board games from home or watch the big game on the flatscreen TV by a warm fire in the stacked-stone fireplace. Kids and the young-at-heart will get a kick out of the authentic arcade game system with many of the classics. Play a few rounds of Bridge or Rummy at the bar-style table and refill your mixed drinks at the granite-top wet bar for an evening of adult fun once the kids have been put to bed. It’s an endless stream of entertainment and relaxation on your Pigeon Forge vacation here! 

Theater Room
After grabbing a drink at the wet bar, enter your cabin’s theater room for an authentic cinematic experience without leaving the cabin or paying those high theater prices. Sit back in your reclining leather seating with convenient cup holders situated in three tiered rows for prime viewing.

Once everyone has their popcorn and drinks, start the movie picked out from the cabin’s library and enjoy the high-quality projector and screen with surround sound, making for an awesome cabin movie night.

Outdoor Amenities
With amazing views like these, it’s no wonder this luxe log cabin provides a large wraparound and second covered deck to savor as much outdoor time as possible during your stay. Be sure to pack your family’s favorite outdoor games to play in the fenced-in backyard or on the spacious deck during laid-back cabin days. Soak in the serene Smoky Mountain views from the numerous log rocking chairs while sharing cups of coffee in the mornings.

Relax under the soft breezes of the outdoor ceiling fans while flipping burgers on the grill and sipping on crisp beers around the log picnic table on warm, sunny afternoons. Soothe busy minds and tired muscles in the bubbly outdoor hot tub while the soft sounds of crickets serenade you in the forests under relaxing hum of the jets.

  • "We were two families from London, England on a 3 week US Road Trip. From Atlanta to Orlando via Smoky Mountains, Nashville, Memphis, Natchez, New Orleans and Destin. We had a great trip, and the stay in Once Upon a View in the Smoky Mountains was one of the highlights. The cabin was wonderful. Lovely views of the mountains; very spacious and comfortable. Enjoyed sitting on the back deck with a cold beer soaking up the mountain views. Also loved the cinema room in the basement."
