About the Owner

We moved from Trenton, 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!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family reunion/vacation. Kristin, the cabin owner, was instrumental in assisting me plan a family reunion at the Big Bear Lodge & Resort, where this cabin is located. We rented other cabins for our other family members and it worked out great because we were so close to each other, yet had our own lodging.

This cabin was spacious, clean & had all the amenities you would want. It is near all the action of Pigeon Forge and close to the Gatlinburg activities as well. While we were there, we went to Dollywood, hiked in the Smoky Mountains, saw waterfalls, visited moonshine distilleries, went whitewater rafting & much more!

I had great communication with Kristin and felt very comfortable with the accommodations. I would definitely recommend this rental!

Wonderful 8 day vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 adults had a wonderful 8 day vacation and we had no issues with space.
I would highly recommend this home it is beautiful and nice. The kitchen was well stocked with most utensils needed for most meals; we loved all the decks and rocking chairs out front.
Kroger grocery store is just down the hill. It's in an excellent location, if you don’t want to stay in the commercial thick of it when you’re in Pigeon stay in this cabin for peace of mind. Perfect location. Off the main strip but close enough to be there in just a few minutes.
We had a wonderful vacation there in Pigeon Forge. Thank you all for making the rental process easy. We would rent from here again.

Mostly Great!

  • 5 of 5
It was pretty clean, had most everything we needed. There were a few minor hiccups but nothing that ruined our stay. The best part is its location, close to town but tucked a few minutes away to give privacy and quiet. The indoor and outdoor pools were great and steps away from the cabin.
The jacuzzi tub did not work at all, and we did bring it to the owners attentions, who were very nice about it and even offered a small refund for the issue. The pull out sofa on main floor needs repair and the small pull out on loft needs replaced. Other than these issues, we really did have a great time and overall loved the cabin and our stay. thank you
TIP: there is only one bedroom with a door, the other main bed does not have a private door. There are 2 pull out couches, but if you need more than 1 bedroom with privacy this one might not work. Otherwise, its a nice quiet place :)

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.
