Roberta Howard purchased this Chalet in 2015
Why Roberta Howard chose Pigeon Forge
We already own Eagles Rest Chalet (VRBO #3842497) just around the corner from this chalet, so we know the area and how this chalet was built. We would only consider renting a property that we ourselves would enjoy, and Dove's Cove Chalet fits the bill! It is conveniently located to all the attractions, easy to find and very comfortable! In 2017: All new carpet, new washer and dryer, new gas grill, two new twin beds and mattresses, new bedding and towels.
What makes this Chalet unique
Especially love the light airy atmosphere of this chalet. Most of the properties in this area are very "woodsy" and that is fine, but it is refreshing to stay at Dove's Cove Chalet where you get lots of light.

Everything went smoothly no problems
This place was absolutely amazing. When reading some of the reviews we contacted Roberta and asked about some of the issues that were mentioned. She assured us that everything would be in great shape upon our arrival. She contacted us before we got there to let us know that there had been new mattresses on all the beds and new bedding and new couches. Everything was super clean and it appeared to have a new hard wood floors. We were very impressed with everything about the cabin. It was in a perfect location. Great access right to the parkway but plenty to do on wares valley rd. The kids really enjoyed the pool which was about 100 yards from the front door. It was also a nice area to go walking. There are some good hills to walk up and down if you are looking for some exercise. I cannot say enough about this place. We will be staying here again when coming to pigeon forge. This is the best cabin that we have ever stayed in because of the prime location, the price, and just over all accommodations of the owner. It gets 5 stars from us in every aspect!
I am so happy that you had a great time! Roberta
We have stayed at this property before. This time was not good. The cabin was dirty. The couches are filthy. The edges of the cushions are black. The couches are red. We didnt sit on them. The porch lighting wasn't working on the entrance side at all. We tried changing the bulbs but that wasn't the issue. There were bugs on the stove........ The bathtubs were stopped up. If you showered, you ended up standing in ankle deep water. Each bathroom had less than half a roll of toliet paper. It is definitely time to change the mattresses- there is not much left to any of them. And the hottub- took the top off and the smell was horrible. Not sure when it was cleaned last or even had chlorine added to it. Honestly we wouldn't have minded the dated decor had it at least felt clean. We will not be staying here in the future if things dont change.
Took me a while to respond to this because quite frankly, I was quite shocked. This is not my standard at all. This is all especially disappointing because we just spent thousands updating and adding new flooring and paneling. I sure hope you called housekeeping about these issues - phone numbers are there to call. I was not called. We are eager to respond to any issue that may arise! However, I do want to report that all new mattresses have been installed and new furniture in the living room. Your next stay will be much improved! Roberta
We had a wonderful stay in Pigeon Forge. The cabin was great for a family and five grandchildren. We hope to come back and stay at the cabin again in the near future.
Thank you for staying with us! Roberta
This is a nice cabin at a very convenient location. The owners have done a good job at starting to update the inside and they probably will continue when they can. The living room had a nice fireplace, but the couches are older and kind of hard to get out of; at least for an older person. The kitchen was well equipped. The dining table and chairs were great for our group, even for games. Overall this was a very good place for a large family or up to four couples(beds for eight). There are three bathrooms of which one is upstairs where two single beds in the loft would share the upstairs bathroom. The water pressure and hot water were great for our group.
Thank you for your review ,I'm glad you had a nice stay! You are right, we are constantly upgrading your family was the first to stay in Doves Cove after we put down new flooring and wall paneling. Thanks again!
Great place Close to everything
We had a great time. The cabin was so close to everything in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The cabin was spacious and everyone enjoy the game room. I heard so many horror stories about cabin driveways and this one was fine. Parking was fine. The place was AWESOME.
I am SO glad you enjoyed your stay! Your comments are appreciated! Roberta
