About Kristin

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.

Kristin purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Kristin chose Tennessee

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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!

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!

Great cabin at a fantastic price

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our family of 4 vacation. Very roomy & clean. The kids had their own little "apartment" in the basement, which was really nice. The master bedroom was literally THE most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, I'll be missing that for sure! It's located right in the hart of Pigeon Forge, so depending on what you're looking for, that may be a pro or a con. I've stayed at more secluded places, which were nice for a romantic vacation, but we had the kiddos with us, so this was just fine. Short drive to all the action. Very close to the outlet mall, Wonderworks & The Island area. Easily walkable. The indoor & outdoor pools were decent & the hot tub in the cabin was very nice. Our stay was wonderful & I'd definitely stay here again.

This is probably our 4 or 5th time staying at this cabin. The owners keep it very clean and well maintained. It is well furnished, beds are comfortable, and the hot tub is hot! The location of the cabin itself is very close to the indoor pool and other facilities, not to mention its perfect location to all the happenings in Pigeon Forge! You won't be disappointed! Looking forward to our stay next year!

Great visit. Cabin has the 3 "c's" for a great experience: comfortable, clean and convenient! Hot tub was great and the kitchen was equipped with enough dishes and cooking tools for a relaxing weekend. Totally recommend this cabin to friends and family.

Great Location!

Our recent stay was wonderful. The cabin was clean and quiet with a relaxing "welcome home" atmosphere. I will miss having my morning coffee while enjoying the beautiful view of the mountains from the master bedroom balcony. We were close to the attractions and restaurants. Thank you for sharing Our Hiking Hideaway with us. Will definitely visit again!
