Away From The Fray Cabin

John and Bev Adkins

owners of Away From The Fray Cabin in Pigeon Forge bought their cabin in 2012 and have made many gorgeous updates. John is very hands on in maintenance and repairs and keeps this cabin in tip top shape. Granite countertops and local artist Johnny Watkins carvings, vintage Atari console and pool table are just a few things you will enjoy here. Located just 3 miles from the Parkway in a quiet cabin community, this cabin is situated privately and has so much to offer you! There is even a cute log cabin style wedding chapel for rent in this cabin resort. How perfect!

Moose-b-Haven Condo

Patti Smith

It all started in 2010 when Patti purchased Moose-b-Haven and the beginning of our group of owners soon followed! Moose-b-Haven has that 'comfy homey' rustic chic feel and guests love it. It is at the top of Ski Mountain with fantastic mountain views of Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort and Mt LeConte! Picnic & grilling areas, Sauna, Hot Tubs, Pool and Game Room too all surrounded in a gorgeous mountain setting! Wildlife love our grounds here. Moose-b-Haven is a comfortable beautiful place to relax and enjoy a true mountain experience! You will love Moose-b-Haven! And you can't go wrong with over 120 great online guest reviews!!

Starry Nights Condo

Manny and Maria Sarduy

the owners of Starry Nights Condo in Gatlinburg since 2006. Recently they completely renovated everything from the floors to the appliances!! And the VIEWS are nothing short of spectacular. There is a telescope here as the views and skies here are just awesome. Picnic and grilling areas, Pool, Hot Tubs, Sauna and Game Room too. You can see the night lights of downtown Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge all the way to Sevierville from the living room window!! Not to mention fireworks on the 4th of July and New Year's Eve. If you are looking for a true mountain experience at the top of Ski Mountain, you'll love it here!

Mooseberry Ridge Cabin

Patti Smith

was a complete do-over in 2014 which transformed into a true "Southern Charm" log cabin. With wraparound decks it is a quiet, private cabin sanctuary to just unwind and de-stress from busy everyday life in. Sit back to appreciate and enjoy listening to nature and wildlife go about their day while you are relaxing in the rocking chairs or swing. All log interior and the Aspen log king bed gives you that "getaway from it all" cozy feeling. Wood carvings from local artist Johnny Watkins abound here also. Fully screened in Hot Tub deck room is a real joy to keep all the bugs away. Less than 1 mile from the Parkway with a mountain wooded location is hard to beat!

Country Blessings Cabin

Debbie and Chuck Shirk

owners of Country Blessings Cabin in Pigeon Forge bought their cabin in 2003 and love the privacy and seclusion it offers. A peaceful retreat to relax and 'rejuvenate', it is located less than 1 mile from the Parkway, and the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park at the Spur. It also offers a hot tub and pool table. Debbie has an artistic eye and you will notice her little extras as well as local artist Johnny Watkins' work throughout the cabin. So if you want quiet solitude and 'that peaceful easy feeling' yet be 3 minutes from town you'll want to stay at Country Blessings!
