Private Homes, Stoplight 10 cabin description

Welcome to 'The Family Place', our affordable 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom Gatlinburg vacation cabin. The cabin offers a great location with quick & easy access to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, downtown Gatlinburg and Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort & Amusement Park, plus it's just 20 mins to Dollywood and Pigeon Forge.

Choosing 'The Family Place' for your next Smoky Mountain / Gatlinburg get-away is very easy too! We offer the very convenient 'BOOK IT' feature! Just click the yellow 'Book It' button to get a detailed quote, you can even PAY for your stay (subject to verification and acceptance), and your vacation is on it's way.....

Our guests are delighted by Bear Sightings at the cabin and surrounding area during the Spring, Summer and Fall. Note: The bears are wild animals and we ask our guests to use caution and give the bears adequate space. Please keep plenty distance between you and the bear. A better place to view them is with them outside the cabin and you inside the cabin. They are a fascinating to see around the cabin. Guests often report seeing momma bear and her cubs!

Comment from a recent guest: 'We enjoyed staying at this wonderful chalet. The 3 different decks gave everyone personal space needed to get some peace. The interior is cozy - just like home. We also enjoyed using the community pool. The location of this chalet is perfect. It is far enough away from town to get quiet, yet close enough to town and the National Park to be able to come and go easily.'

'The Family Place' is ideal for families, friends, retreats, church groups, shool groups, scouts, ladies getaways, and family reunions. The cabin is pet friendly for well-behaved pets of all types and sizes.

The cabin features 3 levels and 4 decks, so there's plenty of room for everyone in your group to spreadout and relax.

The Family Place is a terrific way to stay in the Smoky Mountains on a budget!!! Affordably priced, beautiful new den and dining room furnishings, and just a 5 minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg or the National Park.

'The Family Place was a great place for my friends to stay while we went White Water Rafting and hiked in the smokies! It was close to Gatlinburg and shopping. We also saw a black bear our first night staying there, which was cool!! It had everything we needed, linens, towels, pots/pans, extra blankets etc. I would stay here again!'

'We had a wonderful time at the Family Place. This is our second time renting from these owners, we highly recommend it.This home has everything you could possibly want in a rental. It truly is a home away from home and then some. Thank you so much Val and Renee. My son had the best birthday ever! We look forward to renting from you again soon.'
