Looking for a great time in the Smokies with family and friends? 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 home 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 The Looney Bin!
Living Room On cool Smoky Mountain nights, 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.
Kitchen 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. 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.
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.
Bedrooms 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.
Ready to paint the town red? The flat driveway with parking for 4 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.

"Girls Christmas weekend. When we arrived to our delight, the cabin was fully decorated for Christmas. This was great. The cabin was just like the pictures which sometimes is not the case. 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.
