Overlooking a peaceful mountain creek, this 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom cabin in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, with space for 6 features beautiful Smoky Mountain style, cozy and stylish interiors, modern amenities, and 2 decks where you can soak up the peace and serenity of the Smokies while sipping your morning coffee or having a drink before climbing into the soothing hot tub at night. And with no cabins in sight, you’ll feel tucked away in the mountains!
Spend days here cozied up in front of the wood-burning fireplace on a romantic getaway, watching movies on the big screen TV with a DVD player, or just relaxing and chatting with friends and family. Everyone can gather at the same time in the living room, just steps from the fully equipped kitchen where you can whip up snacks or create delicious meals for the group.
Enjoy meals at the table or relax with family and friends in the bubbly hot tub on the screened-in porch at your Smoky Mountain cabin. No matter the weather, you can enjoy some fresh air and peaceful wooded surroundings in this enclosed outdoor space. Then step onto the open deck to fire up the gas grill for cookouts and get some sunshine. As you hang out, listen to the sounds of the soothing stream just below for an authentic mountain experience.
Back inside, cozy bedrooms make you feel right at home with 2 queen-size beds and conveniences to make your stay more comfortable. You can soak in the indoor jetted tub, take advantage of the washer and dryer in the cabin, or just kick back and surf the web via the complimentary Wi-Fi at Up the Creek — a prime cabin choice for YOU!
Step into the cozy living area, pop a few pieces of wood into the lovely fireplace (with stone from floor to ceiling), and settle into your Pigeon Forge vacation rental — it’s memory-making time with family and friends at your wonderful cabin rental! Sprawl out on the sofa for a midday snooze, flip on the big screen TV for movie night with the DVD player, and prop your feet on the ottomans for a late-night read. The open concept keeps everyone connected, whether cuddling on the loveseat, whipping up a homemade meal, or playing board games at the dining table.
Mere feet away lies the kitchen, fully equipped with everything you’ll need to prepare secret recipes, movie-night popcorn, midnight snacks, and hot breakfasts. The kitchen is airy, with a window over the stainless-steel double sink, light cabinetry, and white appliances. Keep drinks cool in the fridge, cook tasty dishes with the stove and oven, microwave restaurant leftovers, brew coffee, and leave the mess to the dishwasher.
While an expandable table for 2 rests behind the sofa, a round table for 4 with cushioned seating awaits in the dining area. Keeping close to the kitchen for easy serving and seconds, this dining space is convenient, quaint, and well within sight of the living room’s big screen TV. Whether you desire to keep the kiddos entertained with their meals or prefer to dine without any distractions, the dining area at Up the Creek is versatile. In fact, this space is great for board or card games from home, checking emails throughout your stay, or simply coming together to plan the day’s in-town activities.
Ready for a restful night’s sleep? Tuck the little ones into the 2 twin beds, say goodnight to your friends in their queen-size bed, and venture to the primary suite with a queen-size bed and a private deck overlooking the trees with glimpses of the sparkling river. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan for optimal summer comfort, and 2 of the bedrooms harbor a flatscreen TV for extra entertainment before bed or after sunrise. And let’s not forget the jetted tub just down the hall for relaxing spa baths any time!
Outdoors is where you’ll want to be at this mountain getaway — offering a private deck upstairs and an open deck with a screened-in portion on the main level. Not to mention, this Pigeon Forge cabin has tranquil wooded views all about with a rushing river just below (happily peeking through the trees). Enjoy privacy with nature as you sip coffee on the upper deck, then nibble breakfast at the outdoor seating area with friends. Before the evening sun sets, fire up the gas grill for a barbecue party, followed by a steamy hot tub soak. Great for summer days, the ceiling fan keeps you cool outside.
Looking to take a closer peek at Cove Creek? Head safely down the steep, paved driveway to a set of stairs that leads directly to the river’s edge, where you can cast a line or simply enjoy the scenery and movement of the crystal water. At the top of the drive, you’ll find parking for 2-3 vehicles and only 3 steps into your Pigeon Forge cabin rental, making it easy to unpack and load the cars at this semi-private cabin in Pigeon Forge.
As your new favorite vacation rental in the Smokies, Up the Creep provides the conveniences of home, including high-speed wireless internet for posting to social media, keeping tabs on important emails, and checking out the Cabins for YOU blog. You’ll also be able to use the cabin’s washer and dryer to keep clothes and towels fresh and pack light this trip. The cabin even offers keyless entry, so there is no office to stop by for check-in!

"Up the Creek provides all the comfort of a home away from home! My husband and I stayed at Up the Creek for our honeymoon. It was a private and romantic getaway in the mountains without being too far away. The cabin is more updated than the pictures show which was a pleasant surprise when we arrived. We appreciated the smart TV in the living room and cable TVs in the king and Queen bed room. The WIFI was great since you do not get cell phone reception once you’re at the cabin.
Just know that this cabin is close to a main, high traffic l, road. We are from the city so traffic noise does not bother us but it is noticeable when you’re on one of the 3 decks."

"The cabin was perfect for my family. It was decorated for Christmas which made it feel like home. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space when needed. There were two decks and a screened in porch all over looking the river. The location was just right as well in that it was close to everything but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet. We will definitely be returning soon!"
"This cabin is in a great location. It is beside a running creek with great views, but also beside a busy highway. So there is road noise inside the cabin. However, any cabin beside water will be beside the highway in this area. The driveway is very steep. They do not provide firewood if you go when it’s cold. Hot tub was great!! Washer and dryer worked well. Decorations and cabin were very cute with comfortable beds. Overall a good place I would stay there again. The company responds quickly when needed. "
"Wonderful location. The beds were super comfortable! My only complaint is that the hot tub did not warm up until our last morning there 🙁"

"Up the creek was a great little cabin it had everything we needed for our stay and close enough to stores and attractions about a 5 minute drive"
"Stayed at the "Cabin in the Woods" can't rave enough about how awesome it was! Had nice views of the creek, a hot tub, and wi-fi everything needed for "glamping""
"First time to Pigeon Forge. Found this cabin with blind man's luck. Couldn't have been pleased more. Great location, clean, jacuzzi and hot tub, beautiful creek right off the porch. Big screen TV in the living room. The only thing missing was satellite radio. Fairly priced. We will be back."
""We had a great time staying at ""Up The creek"", just outside of Pigeon Forge. The family of bears were an added delight but we never felt threatened! The cabin was clean, well stocked and very comfortable. We intend to return soon!""
"Up The Creek was the perfect cabin for my family (2 couples and 2 young adults). There is noise from the road, but that also means that we had easy access to all the attractions. The surroundings with the trees and the creek was so nice! We loved being able to sit on the deck each morning and evening and enjoy the sound of the creek. Inside is very comfortable with most everything you need for your stay. The hot tub was up to temperature and ready to go when we arrived. It was a great stay!"
"Was a very nice cabin loved being creekside lots of shade over the decks very peaceful and quaint"
"Perfect place to stay to feel away yet cozy! Close to many great restaurants and shops. Cabin is cute and spacious."
