Looking for a great getaway in the Smokies with friends or the whole family? Stay at The Looney Bin, a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom log cabin for up to 8 guests in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Spacious and cozy, this semi-private cabin rental offers tranquil tree-studded views, fun amenities for all ages, and all the comforts of home, including a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, and complimentary Wi-Fi. 

Sip your morning coffee in a rocking chair, soak away your worries and cares in the bubbly hot tub, watch feature films on the flatscreen TV, play pool in the rec loft, read fantasy novels by the mood-setting fireplace, and slip away to dreamland in a plush king-size bed — at your cozy Pigeon Forge cabin rental!

Living Room 
On cool nights on your Smoky Mountain vacation, you'll appreciate having a warm and inviting living room, with large windows all around plus high ceilings that really open up the space. The stacked-stone gas fireplace will keep the room toasty as you curl up on the plush sofas and watch TV and DVDs on the flatscreen TV. 

With plenty of floor space and a soft area rug, the kiddos can spread out and play as everyone gathers for quality family time. And when nighttime settles in, whip up a batch of cocoa, claim the recliner for yourself, and finally start jotting down ideas for your next book. 

Next to the living area is the open and fully equipped kitchen, where you’ll find all the essentials needed for preparing meals and tasty snacks throughout your memorable stay. Warm wood cabinets, hardwood flooring, and stainless-steel appliances give it a luxurious feel, and several windows let in natural light on beautiful, sunny days. 

Fix homemade recipes on the stove, store leftovers from town in the refrigerator, brown bagels in the toaster, brew a pot of joe anytime, whip up midnight munchies in the microwave, and let the dishwasher handle the mess. There’s even a mahogany island with bar seating for 2, providing extra prep and serving space. 

Dining Area
Set the large wooden dining table between the living and kitchen spaces and sit down for a peaceful meal with friends and family at your vacation rental. With 2 end chairs and bench seating, everyone will have a nice place to dine. This space is also great for playing board or card games brought from home or bought in town. Or set up homeschooling, scrapbook, make arts and crafts, or sit down for a morning meeting. 

Rec Room | Loft 
After you've relaxed a little, it’s time to play in the rec room! Head to the loft for rousing rounds of pool or chill time with a few cold ones and the TV. There’s even a side bar where you can enjoy drinks and snacks while awaiting your next turn. Or have a seat on the bar stools and relax while cheering on your bestie. 

The classic arcade console is ready for you to show off your skills, and there is a high-top table where you can play checkers! The loft is a fun, open space to just hang out and relax. While the adults play upstairs, the kids can watch movies downstairs - or vice versa. 

Rest and relaxation are what you’ll find in the 2 bedrooms, each with its own TV and comfortable bedding, at The Looney Bin. The upstairs bedroom harbors a queen-size bed and DVD player, so you can enjoy movie nights under the covers. 

The entry-level bedroom boasts a king-size bed, a gas fireplace, an en-suite bathroom, and an indoor jetted tub, where you can enjoy a relaxing and romantic soak before heading into town for the day! If you're traveling with additional guests, take advantage of the home’s sleeper sofa and futon. 

Outdoor Spaces
On the covered deck of this classic log cabin, you can enjoy the great outdoors and woodsy views year-round, rain or shine. Drink endless cups of coffee as you sit back and relax in the rocking chairs, fire up the gas grill for a barbecue cookout, and soak in the steamy hot tub to soothe tired muscles from the day’s hike in the national park. With lush greenery all around, you’ll feel completely at ease among your breathtaking views of the trees. 

Ready to paint the town red? The flat driveway with parking for 4 is motorcycle friendly and offers an easy space to unload and repack the cars. Plus, there’s only 1 step into the cabin, making entering and exiting that much easier.

Other Amenities
Homey conveniences are aplenty at The Looney Bin, including a washer and dryer, VCR, and free Wi-Fi! Pack light and keep clothes and towels fresh throughout your stay, watch home videos from decades past, and keep in touch with loved ones back home with ease. You will even have keyless entry, so you don’t have to stop by an office for check-in. 

Local Fun
Less than 11 miles from downtown Pigeon Forge and less than 9 miles from downtown Gatlinburg, this Smoky Mountain cabin is convenient to all the shops, restaurants, and attractions of both towns for your Pigeon Forge vacation. When you're ready for some fun outside of your vacation home, head to downtown Pigeon Forge and check out the many great attractions for your family vacation! 

For a day of browsing and shopping, stop by The Island and ride The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel for amazing views before checking out the unique stores. Along the Parkway in Pigeon Forge, you'll also find miniature golf, laser tag, go karts, arcade games at game rooms, and kid-friendly attractions like WonderWorks and the Hollywood Wax Museum! And don’t forget about mountain views in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Tanger Outlets in Sevierville! Your mountain getaway will never be boring. 

Ride daredevil rollercoasters, eat Southern homemade snacks, witness unforgettable musical performances, see bald eagles up close and personal, and so much more at Dollywood — famed theme park of the Smokies!

The Track Smoky Mountains
Whiz around sharp turns, zoom past your bestie, and soar through 4 unique go-kart courses at The Track Smoky Mountains, which also features an arcade, blaster boats, and kiddie rides.

We absolutely had a great time. In 3 days, only left the cabin once to go to Dollywood. Rest of the time just enjoyed the cabin and each others company. Highly recommend this cabin. The Golden Girls"

  • "The property was great! We loved the cabin. Very clean upon arrival. We didn’t have any neighbors right next to us which we like. We were close enough to hear others which was fine so it didn’t seem like we were completely alone. The wooden area was beautiful. The cabin was farther out than we usually like but it’s definitely not a deal breaker. Beautiful cabin, great scenery and perfect for a family getaway."

  • "The cabin was beautiful. I wish we would've had longer to stay so we could enjoy more. There is plenty to keep you busy if you decide to stay at the cabin instead of going into town. Very relaxing,"

  • "absolutely loved the Christmas decorations! this place is fully equipped with all things needed for a meal. "

  • "Cabins for you had us so mesmerized once we got there. The cabin was so spacious and welcoming me and my husband are now even looking to move in one maybe next year! Our experience was one of a kind. We’re not rich but this was our official honeymoon after all these years. I’m glad you guys assisted us in having a great experience. We didn’t go broke trying this new adventure."

  • "The cabin was on a dead end so it was quiet with no thru traffic. Everything was clean, the decorations were unique and the cabin was well stocked."

  • "Our family of 7 stayed in this beautiful cabin! Ours (10months, 3, 11, 11 and 13) had a blast! The view was great. Other cabins surrounded us, but you couldn't tell! We had wildlife visit almost every day. We saw raccoons, turtles and opossums from our balcony! It was absolutely breathtaking! Everything was super clean and easy to find and function! Definitely on our list to return!"

  • "Very nice cabin! My family enjoyed staying here for our fall break."

  • "Nice relaxed stay"

  • "Everything was pleasantly found as we were expecting at "The Looney Bin" cabin! Very secluded area, clean and comfortable cabin!! A DVD player would have be nice to watch movies that we had brought. Great trip and great stay!!!"

  • "We loved staying at the Looney Bin! Very nice accommodations. It was clean and was in a great location near the Arts and Crafts community of Gatlinburg. The temperature was a little on the cool side during our visit, but we didn't mind at all. Having a hottub and cozy cabin with a gas burning fireplace gave us something to look forward to, after exploring the Smokies all day. The teenagers liked the gameroom and their own private space upstairs to relax and get away. The kitchen had everything, including a dishwasher, so no dishes to wash for mom. We would definitely stay again!"

  • "Great place rest and relax! We will be staying there again in the future. Thanks"

Always something to. Very relaxing and all you would need for your stay. Close to town. Will definitely be back."
