Whip up meals for the group in the fully equipped kitchen, enjoy eating together in the cabin at the dining table (or use it for homeschool, work, or games!), or relax in the rocking chairs on the deck after a fun day shopping and playing in downtown Pigeon Forge. After a big day on the lake, come back to the cabin to toss burgers and steaks on your gas grill; browse the cabin’s movie library to pop in the DVD or Blu-ray player; play arcade games, pool, shuffleboard, or ping pong; or just unwind and take advantage of the high speed Wi-Fi.

The gas fireplace inside is great for cozying up on cool mountain nights, and bedding includes 1 king bed, 3 queen beds, 1 queen bunk, 1 twin daybed, and 1 queen sleeper. The cabin also has a washer/dryer that’s nice to have when you’re spending days on the water, hiking, or just playing in the Smokies all day.

An open and welcoming space, the living room at this cabin on the water boasts high ceilings with plenty of natural light. Hardwood floors flow throughout, and the spacious area rug adds comfort to the room. The stacked stone (gas) fireplace is cozy in winter months and a perfect addition to your nighttime read or late night chat with a friend.

The main kitchen is open concept to the living and dining area and features everything from stainless steel appliances and plenty of counter space to a porcelain double sink and a breakfast bar.

The dining area at this Douglas Lake cabin is just off the kitchen and boasts views of the lake while you chat and dine. The natural-style wooden table has matching chairs and a bench. Combined with the kitchen bar stools and living room seating, everyone can chat and eat together. On nice days, open the door to the outdoor table and seating for memorable meals with nature.
