Pigeon Forge cabin description

***This cabin is rented by the owner directly. When you email or call about the cabin, you will be speaking directly with the owner- not a management company. We know more about our cabin than any management company ever could. We visit regularly and enjoy sharing our vacation home with you. We are responsive owners who answer inquiries/emails quickly and attend to our guests' questions and concerns to help make their vacation the best!***

Please send me an email to get the best rate. Quotable rates through the VRBO site might be higher than a quote from the owner.

Our photos are up-to-date. They were taken in June 2013 with new ones of the exterior taken in early August 2014. We purchased a new sofa and recliner in March 2014, so we needed new photos to show those and then the cabin's exterior was stained in July 2014. We love the updates, and know you will too!

We have been renting by owner since December 2006. During that time, we have met so many wonderful people who have stayed at our cabins. We try to add a personal touch and are attentive and responsive to guests. We strive for guest satisfaction and want our guests to come back again and again.

Easy to get to! Only a few steps to enter cabin- great parking!

We work very hard to keep the cabin in great shape for our guests. Please read through our guest comments to see what our guests are saying about this cabin. Our guest comments are written and added to our listing by our GUESTS- not the owner! We think this sets us apart and shows how pleased our guests are with Away From It All. We let them speak for us, instead of us typing in comments from our cabin's guestbook.

Since our family stays at the cabin often, we have added extra touches that make this cabin a home away from home- not just a cabin rental. Also, check out our guest comments about how clean the cabin is. Our cleaning person takes great pride in making sure everything is spic and span and our guest comments show that it doesn't go unnoticed.

Check out what so many of our guests love about Away From It All. Please note that our reviews are SUBMITTED BY GUESTS who have stayed at the cabin- NOT ENTERED BY THE OWNER from our cabin's guestbook. That means our guests enjoyed their stay enough to take the extra time to submit a guestbook entry on this site. We think this shows what an exceptional cabin we provide and how hard we work to make your stay a good one.

Have you searched through tons of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg cabin rentals by owner? Stop looking. You've found the best cabin! We rent 2 cabins by owner in the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge area and work very hard to make sure your stay is the best it can be. We have a local maintenance and cleaning company who help us keep the cabin in tip-top shape.

Convenient to all area attractions, Away From It All, is the perfect spot to spend your Smoky Mountain vacation. The cabin is private and easy to get to- paved roads all the way. It is less than 7 miles to Dollywood's entrance. The cabin has easy access for older adults or small children- just four steps to enter with the top step only being about 2-3 feet off the ground.

The large parking area will even accommodate a motorcycle trailer. If you are looking for convenience, this cabin is for you. The Arts and Crafts community is within 15 minutes. Dollywood, Dolly's Splash Country, Dixie Stampede, The Old Mill, Gatlinburg, and the Smoky Mountain Park are also within 15-20 minutes.

Inside, it is cozy and comfortable for couples or a family. The black bear theme makes you feel right at home in the mountains. Several guests have said their children wanted to spend the whole day at the cabin instead of visiting area attractions! If you need a restful retreat after a full day of vacationing, this is the cabin for you.

The all wooden interior shows wonderful craftsmanship. The downstairs master bedroom boasts a king-sized log bed, jacuzzi tub, and full private bathroom while the upstairs loft area has a queen-sized log bed and another full bathroom in addition to the pool table.

The loft area is perfect for children or another couple since it's equipped with another TV and another full bath. Teenagers especially love having this space of their own for entertainment. We added an extra TV set up with a PlayStation 2 and games in the summer of 2010. Upstairs, a catwalk leads you from the loft area to the upper deck where the hot tub is located. You can enjoy the moonlight in complete privacy.

Two of the decks have rocking chairs for resting and reading. Also there is a table and chairs for meals outside enjoying the quietness of the area. An outdoor gas fireplace was added in November 2010. The cabin is built on a one-acre lot and is in an area where you can sit on one of the three decks and enjoy the sounds of nature.

Outside, there is a small yard area and a large covered b-b-q grill which is large enough for family grilling. With every amenity you could possibly need, it's the perfect spot to get 'Away From It All'!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Hi! We're the Faust's- a family of 4. My husband and I, along with our two sons, live in a small town north of Birmingham, Alabama. I just retired after 26 years of teaching elementary school and started a new job with the Alabama Education Association and my husband, Neil is a farmer. Our oldest son is in college and our youngest son just received his diesel mechanic certification from a technical college.

                  Why the Owner Chose Pigeon Forge:
                  After owning vacation rentals on the Gulf Coast of Alabama since 2000, we experienced Hurricane Ivan in September 2004. Our condo was out of commission for about 7 months, so we decided to sell and buy in an area where we didn't have to worry about hurricanes. We live about 6 hours from the beach and about 4.5 hours from the mountains, so we decided to find a cabin in the Smoky Mountains. There are so many family activities in this area, we knew we would enjoy having a vacation home here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Away From It All is in a quiet and serene area. You feel like you are away from all the hustle and bustle of the Pigeon Forge area, but it's close enough to drive to any attraction or even back into town to eat dinner or pick up groceries- it's the best of both worlds. We stay at the cabin frequently and have tried to make it a home away from home.
