About the Owner

We moved from Michigan to Knoxville in 1978 to attend the University of Tennessee. We immediately fell in love with East Tennessee so we stayed and raised our family here. We're so fortunate to live at the gateway to one of the country's most beautiful and popular national parks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely loved the cabin - it was great. Had a great time in the mountains other than getting a little bruised from tubing down the river. The cabin was beautiful and our kids loved the bottom level - they basically had their own house down there. Thanks again and we will rent from you next time we visit the Smokey’s!

3 night stay with two adults & two 3 year olds turned out to be a great time at this cabin. It was clean, supplied with starter cleaning materials, and plenty of towels. 2.5 bathrooms and plenty of sleeping space. The only thing to keep in mind is that the other sleeping area aside from the master bedroom is two floors below. But it still worked out for our little family! Thank you Kristin for a great place to stay!

Christmas Week

  • 1 of 5
Rocky start. Sofa coach did not pull out so owners left an air mattress. Fireplace did not work but owners had if fixed the next day. Left early due to wildlife (lots of wildlife) in the cabin. Owners did not help us find a new location even though it was the night before Christmas Eve. Lost a day finding a new location and packing up. Owners did refund our money.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that you had a bad experience. Christmas should obviously be a joyful time and we wish that yours could have been as perfect as you wanted.

The guests that left the day before these guests came notified us that they had trouble closing the sofa couch on the main level. Our cleaning and maintenance folks investigated and said that they were able to close it but care should be taken when doing so. Given the short notice we decided to purchase a queen size air mattress as a back up and let these guests know the situation. We also have a sleeper sofa on the lower level that was available to use, but these guests said it was too uncomfortable for their college age sons to use.

The guests emailed to let us know that the gas fireplace on the main level was not working. We immediately called the local fireplace shop to investigate and they determined that a valve had failed and the best solution was to replace the entire fire log set which we had them do on Dec 22nd.

Unfortunately due to the wildlife issue, the guests decided they needed to leave. We called several owners that we knew in the resort to see if they had any vacancies but they didn't and we told the guests that and gave them a web site of other rentals in the resort to check. We did offer them a 50% rate for the remainder of their stay if they decided to stay.

Once we found out they were leaving we did process a full refund of their visit including the two nights that they stayed.

The whole situation was unfortunate and we hate that they had a bad experience. We do pride ourselves on being responsive and we promptly responded to the 5 emails and numerous phone calls that we got from these guest to try and solve the problems.

We are working on getting the remaining issues resolved. We did have guests scheduled for a visit right after Christmas and we advised them that we needed to cancel to take care of some issues. They convinced us that they would deal with them and ended up staying. They also left us a nice review!

This was part of what we gave our Children for Christmas. A week in the mountains.We had a wonderful time and the Cabin was great. We would recommend it to anyone. The cabin is in a good location and close to everything you would like to do. We want to thank you again for your kind hospitality and I'm sure we'll be back.

From the Owner

We purchased our cabin in 2002 to allow us to be closer to the Smoky's for our hiking and fly-fishing adventures. The location at Big Bear Lodge & Resort is incredibly convenient to everything you need to enjoy this wonderful area. In 2012 we decided to forego rental management companies and rent on our own.

Our cabin is perfect for guests who want to be close to shopping, restaurants, and all of the Pigeon Forge attractions, but still feel a sense of privacy. We love to use it for our 'base camp' for hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains!
