Overview

About the property

Charming Lodge, Sleeps 10, Game Room, Outdoor Hot Tub, Weber Grill, 5 TVs

Lagniappe Lodge is a charming mountain cabin. We purchased this property in November of 2013 when it was still a private vacation home used only by the previous owner. It remains in excellent condition with some recent upgrades. The dining area has been improved with the addition of a larger dining table with comfortable seating for six. The kitchen has been equipped with new pots (3, 5 & 8 qt.), pans, electric mixer, a new blender, and other cooking essentials. You can enjoy authentic charcoal grilling on the main floor deck using the new Weber 22" charcoal grill that includes a large food preparation area. The deck is equipped with table and chairs so you can enjoy your steaks, kabobs, or fish outdoors. A wonderful place to visit any season of the year. Sleeps 10 comfortably. This includes a queen size bed in main-floor master bedroom; a queen size bed and 1 set of bunk beds in loft; queen size sofa sleeper, 1 set of bunk beds and 2 single chair sleepers in downstairs family room. It has 2 decks with views of the mountain, a fully equipped kitchen, 2 full baths, 5 TVs with cable service, internet access, a game room with pool table and bar, and an outdoor hot tub. There is ample parking. The master bedroom has its own Jacuzzi.

We supply hotel size soap and one towel, one facecloth, and one washcloth for each guest. There is a washer/dryer in the cabin so you will be able to wash them if needed. You should bring your own soap powder, however.

The cabin sits on a hillside and has a lovely wooded view of bottom of the hill and the ridge across the valley. It provides a warm comfortable setting for the cabin with relaxing views. Start your day with a morning walk surrounded by the beautiful foliage. Spend the day taking advantage of the local attractions (see below) or hiking along one of the stunning trails in Smoky Mountain National Park. Enjoy beautiful sunsets and wildlife while you grill a delicious meal on either of the outdoor decks, or just relax and enjoy an adult beverage in the hot tub.

You should be advised that the drive up the mountain is on a typical windy and occasionally steep road. It is quite a pretty drive. The road is paved which makes the drive quite reasonable. We recommend that you drive cautiously at the posted speed limits. If you've driven in the mountains before, you'll find this is a fairly easy drive.

Activities abound for those of all ages and interests. There are amusement parks, including Dollywood and Splash Country, go carts, mini golf, museums (like the Ripley's Aquarium) dinner shows (our favorite...Dixie Stampede), outlet shopping and churches for all denominations.

If you are an outdoors person, then you will enjoy opportunities for white water rafting, horseback riding, hiking, backpacking, skiing, zip lining, golf, picnics (our favorite spot...Chimney Tops) and much more are readily available. Here are just a few examples:

Dollywood ~ 6 miles

Downtown Gatlinburg ~ 7 miles

Entrance to Great Smokey National Park ~ 8 miles

Ober Gatlinburg (Snow Skiing) ~ 7miles

Pigeon Forge ~ 5 miles

Tanger Outlet Mall (Shopping, shopping, and more shopping!) ~ 9 miles

Five Oaks Riding Stables ~ 9 miles

Adventure Park Zip Lines ~ 9 miles

RainForest Adventures Discovery Zoo ~ 10 miles

Scenic Helicopter Tours ~ 16 miles

Lagniappe Lodge is the perfect place for a family get- together or a romantic getaway for just two. (Must be 25 years old to rent and stay). 10% discount on nightly rates for military, vets, police, firemen. The physical address is: 1539 Sky View Drive, Pigeon Forge, TN 37876

About Forrest Forbes

We are two couples....related...a brother and his wife, a sister and her husband. Being from the flatlands of New Orleans we are never disappointed by the beauty of East Tennessee.

Forrest Forbes purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Forrest Forbes chose Tennessee

Having spent much time in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and the surrounding area, we decided that it made sense to purchase a second home here. There are many activities that attracted us to the area. You can stay very busy or you can enjoy the quiet and solitude. The beautiful scenery and surprisingly varied activities are enough to fulfill most anyone's requirement for an enjoyable getaway. Why not purchase a home in East Tennessee? After looking at a multitude of cabins we chose Lagniappe Lodge for its quality, location, and setting. The surrounding foliage is spectacular and the cabin is comfortable and well furnished. We could not be happier with our purchase.

What makes this cabin unique

What truly made us fall in love with Lagniappe Lodge was the opportunity it provides for us and those who share in it to experience so many things....a relaxing morning with a good cup of coffee and chicory, the tranquility of nature, the fun of the local amusements and the pure joy of participating in outdoor activities whether it is a challenging hike along the Appalachian Trail or a relaxing round of golf at one of several scenic golf courses in the area.

We've never rented a cabin before

  • 5 of 5

We were so thrilled that our first cabin rental turned out to be this one. Had we had a bad experience we would not be doing this again however we intend on coming back at least twice a year. Thanks for helping us survive hurricane Irma and make some of our best family memories.

MEMORIES FOR A LIFE TIME

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my mother, and my 4 children, rented this cabin for 5 days. Upon walking in everyone was amazed at its cleanliness, beauty, large spacing, awesome layout, and serenity. My brother stopped and stayed a night with us on his way through to visit Ohio, and he is excited to rent this cabin for himself--he was that impressed! Furthermore, this cabin created a perfect ending to each day--a place to come "home" to each night and enjoy the hot tub, scenery, pool table, and the most comfortable beds one will ever experience. Lastly, but not in the least order of importance, the owners of this cabin were very warm in spirit and accommodating.

We try to accommodate our guests in every way possible to ensure their stays are enjoyable and that they enjoy their time in the Smokys. We do hope you'll return next year and we look forward to having your brother as our guest. All the best to you and your family! Forrest

At this cabin you are in close proximity to the many attractions of Pigeon Forge, the charm of Gatlinburg and the amazing wonders of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. There is something for everyone whether you are 1 year old or 90 years old. Our favorite place is Chimney Tops Picnic Area within the National Park...a must!
