The Smoky Mountains are where natural beauty meets a tourist's dreamland, and Squirrel's Nest offers the best of both worlds. For your next family getaway or retreat with friends in the mountains, head to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, for a fun and relaxing escape at this 3-bedroom, 3½-bathroom cabin rental for up to 6 guests.

Enjoy peaceful wooded and partial mountain views plus a quick drive to the ski slopes at Ober, downtown restaurants, attractions, and shops when you stay in this cozy cabin in Gatlinburg. 

At your Gatlinburg cabin rental, get cozy with a mug of cocoa by the crackling fireplace, gaze at tranquil views through the floor-to-ceiling windows, and shoot pool anytime. You can cook in the fully equipped kitchen and dine at the table or toss steaks on the gas grill for a picnic on the deck. Sip morning coffee in the fresh mountain air or slip into the hot tub for a steamy soak. At night, rest and relax in your private suite with a bathroom, a TV, and a king or queen bed.

Additional amenities at this cabin rental in Gatlinburg include free Wi-Fi to stay connected with the online community, a washer and dryer to reuse provided towels if you like, a big screen TV with a DVD player for movie nights together, and keyless entry for your convenience. Some of the bedrooms have their own fireplaces, and the driveway is paved, curvy, and steep with parking for 2 vehicles. Squirrel’s Nest is an ideal place to stay with great views, nice amenities, and fun extras in the Smokies!

Living Room
Floor-to-ceiling windows and wood walls create the classic Smoky Mountain experience at your Gatlinburg cabin. On cool nights after exploring Anakeesta, hiking miles of trails, or shopping at The Village, curl up on the plush sofas around the stone (gas) fireplace and unwind. Read a good book by the light of the lamps on the side tables, watch DVDs on the big screen TV, or play board games and card games on the coffee table. This cozy space will be the perfect place to catch up with family and friends.

For more fun, head to the game area behind the sofas to play a few rounds on the pool table. Windows surrounding the room let in lots of natural light and allow you to enjoy wooded views as you play. It's an inviting space that both kids and adults love! You'll feel away from it all as you read, watch TV, and play here.

Just steps from the living area, the fully equipped kitchen offers guests an easy way to make delicious meals at this Smoky Mountain cabin. It features beautiful wood cabinets, ample counter space, and all the essentials. A full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, microwave, Keurig coffeemaker, blender, toaster, and plenty of dishes and utensils make eating in the cabin pleasant and fun. Conveniently store bottles of vino from the Gatlinburg Wine Trail, cook hearty dishes, grab quick snacks, and pour drinks throughout your stay!

Dining Area
Next to the kitchen is a dining table for 6 — perfect for meals together. With an open plan in the living, dining, and kitchen areas, guests can enjoy each other's company as they cook, eat, and relax. You can also use the table to play board games, deal cards, paint a picture, craft with the kids, teach homeschool, or get a little work done.

Between dining at The Park Grill, visiting Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, and checking out local museums, you'll find peace and rest in the 3 comfortable bedrooms at your Gatlinburg cabin in the Smokies. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, TV, and a comfortable bed — a mix of 1 king-size bed and 2 queen-size beds.

With a bathroom for each bedroom, there will be no fighting over the mirror! Two of the bedrooms even have a little fireplace plus access to the lower-level deck, where you can reconnect with nature whenever you please. There’s an additional half bath conveniently located on the main level as well.

Outdoor Spaces
Outside at your Gatlinburg vacation rental, 2 decks provide great spaces to enjoy the serene natural setting. Sit around the picnic table with a cup of coffee or enjoy meals on nice days. You can fire up the gas grill for cookouts and take in the seasonal mountain views as you dine and relax together. At the end of the day, soothe your muscles in the hot tub as you take in the wooded views and fresh air. Do note the driveway is paved, curvy, and steep with parking for 2 vehicles at the top.

Other Amenities
Along with fun things to do at your vacation home, you’ll have more homey conveniences during your stay. Toss loads of towels, linens, or clothes into the washer and dryer as needed and tap into the free Wi-Fi to post trip pics and videos with ease. You’ll also have keyless entry so you don’t have to stop by an office anytime. Please note this Smoky Mountain cabin rental is not pet friendly.

Local Fun

Less than 5 miles from downtown Gatlinburg, Squirrel's Nest is a short drive to the heart of the city. Head into town for a romantic dinner or a hearty Southern meal with the family. Find something for every craving, including sweets, seafood, steak, burgers, wings, Chinese, Italian, breakfast, and more. Nearby dinner shows offer delicious food and tons of laughs, and area attractions provide days of fun!

Pigeon Forge and Sevierville are also nearby and offer more options for your memorable mountain vacation. And don’t forget to enjoy a great outdoor adventure — riding horses, fly fishing for rainbow trout, picnicking beside a sparkling river, or hiking to scenic overlooks — in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park!

The Island
Enjoy delicious meals or savory snacks at the variety of eateries, ride the Ferris wheel overlooking the city, or enjoy a unique light show by the fountain at the center of the park. The kids will love the ropes course, train, and live music that brings The Island alive!

Clingmans Dome
Be sure to visit this observation tower that sits 6,643 feet tall, making it the highest point of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You don’t have to be an expert hiker or mountain climber; the short ½-mile trek along a paved path makes getting to the peak a feat the whole family can conquer.

Roller coasters, carnival games and prizes, a choo-choo train, Southern restaurants, cookies the size of your face, kids’ rides, live shows…Dollywood has something for all ages!

Please note this cabin is not pet friendly and is monitored by video surveillance.

Reviews for Squirrel's Nest

  • "Just came home from our vacation at the Squirrels Nest in Gatlinburg. We had a great time and the cabin was beautiful. We sure will be coming back again."

  • "We stayed in The Squirrel’s Nest and it was wonderful! The kitchen was fully stocked and the gas grill was great! Everything was so clean and organized. The view is amazing! I highly recommend booking this cabin!"

  • "Great location from the strip. About a 8 minute drive. Close to hiking and other great events. Grill and cook wear were in great condition. Overall a great trip."

  • "This cabin offers everything you need to have a great time. We were able to enjoy the hot tub after a long day of hiking or shopping/walking around in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge."

  • "Outstanding cabin in a stellar location. A short drive to all there is to see in Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains. Hosts were extremely responsive and accommodating to our unique travel timeline. Also provided were great local tips and travel advice. Would definitely recommend staying here!"

  • "Our cabin a Squirrels Nest was very nice. The view was amazing and we could see Ober Gatlinburg from our balacony off the living room. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely rent through Cabins for you gain."

  • "We loved staying at Squirrel's Nest, the pictures don't even do it justice! It is close to downtown Gatlinburg and Ober, so we had everything we needed around 15 minutes away. We enjoyed getting in the hot tub after a long day of skiing. My only note would be that this house does not include the basic necessities such as napkins, dishwasher soap, cooking oil or butter, laundry detergent, etc. Make sure you do all of this shopping beforehand so you can really enjoy the house! "

  • "We rented this little cabin for spring break despite all things in the area closing down due to the Corona virus. We wanted to isolate in the mountains. It has a beautiful view of the mountains since you are literally at the top of the mountains. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook meals everyday. We were able to fit comfortably a family of 5 adults and 3 children plus an infant. Only note is that the sofa bed is not the most comfortable thing so maybe bring an air mattress if you plan on using that. The cabin gives you 2 assigned parking spots, we had a third car that needed a spot and when we called we were told they couldn’t allow us to park anywhere else. In the entrance of the street to the cabins there are 4 isolated parking spots that looked like visitors parking spots since they did not have a assigned cabin number on the parking spots. We took a chance and parked our third car there and had no problems at all. Overall we loved our stay in this cabin, we will definitely be renting from Cabins For You in the future!!! They were so professional and made our experience super easy despite all the hectic things going around the world."

  • "Extremely clean and beautiful cabin in a beautiful location. Highly recommend!"

  • "We had a great vacation at Squirrel's Nest in Gatlinburg! The cabin was very nice, clean, and the views were great! We saw bears up close every day which was amazing. We would book with Cabins for You again. The check in/check out experience was very easy and they made sure we had all the information we needed well before the vacation."

  • "This place is exactly as it was described on the site. The rooms were super clean, the communication was efficient, and the amenities were more than adequate. I would like to specially draw attention to the view this cabin offer, it’s absolutely gorgeous for anyone looking to really capture the Smokys experience!"

  • "We enjoyed this location. It was close to SM National Park. The property is in good condition and the view was very pretty. We really enjoyed the hot tub after hiking around. 😀"

  • "I stayed here with my husband and two other couples. It was the perfect space for a couples getaway. The views were amazing, the cabin was clean and well stocked. The pictures don’t do this cabin justice! Very pleased with our stay!"

  • "I absolutely loved my cabin and did not want to leave. It was very clean and had everything such as plates, pots, pans, utensils, etc. Great location to see bears and they were not aggressive. All the bedrooms had full bathrooms and walk in showers. Just wonderful!"

  • "I’ll tell you what. This was my first log cabin experience and it was awesome! The cabin itself was very roomy, my kids loved it. It was my first experience with actual bears up close, which was kind of nice but scary at the same time. The only problem we had was the area rug in the living room was vacuumed properly, there was popcorn crumbs everywhere. But overall great experience, would definitely do it again."

  • "The place was breathtaking."
