Private Homes, Stoplight 1 cabin description

Looking for a great cabin at affordable rates? Scroll down and read from our more than 100 reviews and discover what others are saying about this well-maintained, pet friendly rental. This cabin lives like your own home--comfortable, clean and convenient to everything in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Only 5 minutes to either town. And you're right around the corner from a 6 acre community lake, so it's great for taking family walks, exercising the dog or catch-and-release fishing. Swaying Pines is now in it's 14th year as a vacation rental cabin and we continue to make improvements every year. Most recently, we overhauled the kitchen with new counter-tops, sink, built-in custom shelves for storage and tile backsplash. We also removed a jacuzzi tub in the first floor bathroom and replaced it with a beautiful, tiled walk-in shower. Come discover what all the reviews are about!

The deck features a lower level with a glider swing, charcoal grill and horseshoe pits. The covered upper deck offers shade, keeping rain or snow at bay while you're in the hot tub. But we don't stop there: the deck has outdoor stereo speakers and blue and white rope lights for an even more festive atmosphere. You'll love it!

Swaying Pines has 2 bedrooms and a loft for sleeping quarters. The first floor bedroom features a king log bed while the upper bedroom has a queen size log bed. The loft has a double bed.

Swaying Pines's location is right between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg--only a few minutes' drive to either town. Well-paved roads with no scary mountain drop-offs or challenging curves. Just a steady climb that most vehicles can easily manage.

We have three other cabins, VRBO listing 51745 'GrandView' and VRBO listing 134504 'TreeHouse Hideaway'. If a smaller 1BR cabin will do, check out our newest offering VRBO listing 308275 'Water's Edge.' Scroll down to the blue link that says CLICK HERE TO SEE ALL MY LISTINGS to see them. All of our cabins are pet friendly.

Thank you for considering our pet friendly cabins. Even if you don't bring a pet along--and most of our guests don't--we pride ourselves in maintaining a fresh, clean cabin that you'll never know is pet friendly! Pet stays are a separate fee and must be approved in advance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Hi, I'm Amy Greener and we're happy to offer our guests clean, updated accommodations that won't break the piggy bank. My husband Rick and I own four cabins altogether and this is our family business, not a hobby--though it started out innocently! We strive to offer you something different in a vacation rental--unique decor, comfortable beds and furnishings, lots of little extras and focus on details. And most of all, a very friendly, personalized experience. We want you to feel like our guests, not renters. And when you need us, we're here for you.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Stoplight 1:
Lots of people ask us why we chose this area to buy a vacation rental, when there are so many beautiful properties in the northern areas of Michigan. Honestly, it boiled down to two big factors: money and weather. With three young children, we didn't have much money to work with. We were looking specifically for a modest, fixer-upper. And Michigan gets mighty cold after October, so we headed south for our cabin search. We love the Smokies, the history of the area and it's welcoming people. We've made many friends and acquaintances there over the years, and you can't help but feel that wonderful southern charm and hospitality wherever you go.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Swaying Pines is a hidden gem...only 5 minutes from either Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. We especially enjoy the short drive to either town when it's really busy, like holidays. The 6 acre lake is privately owned so you don't need to buy a fishing license. It's so relaxing to take a walk around the corner to the lake and drop a line...or just make a loop around the lake for some exercise. The horseshoes are lots of fun, too. It has been a joy for us to gradually update and upgrade the cabin and hear comments from guests who remember it having a blue exterior, dial up internet or the old jacuzzi in the bathroom (and no shower, ugh). Humble beginnings, for sure.
