Pigeon Forge cottage description
This enchanting cottage, located in downtown Pigeon Forge, is just two streets off the Parkway at Light Number Six. It is close to everything Pigeon Forge has to offer, but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet at the end of a long day of sightseeing in the beautiful Smoky Mountains. This is truly your 'Home Away from Home'.
From the minute you enter the living room with fireplace , you know you have arrived to comfort and relaxation. Enjoy early morning or late night time-outs on your cottage's large deck with covered hot tub, picnic table, and gas grill. The cottage is located on a quiet street with a large flat driveway for the kids and their skate boards or bicycles. The swimming pool is only a few steps away.
We now offer a 42' flat screen TV in the living room, new TVs in both bedrooms and new hardwood flooring. This cottage is on a flat lot with a double driveway for parking several cars and trailers for the many car shows throughout the year. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for any meal you wish to prepare. All linens are provided, and there is a washer/dryer.
We do have Wireless high speed internet available.

The house was very clean and tidy as pictured. The location could not be more perfect! The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were spotless. The yard is flat land and large enough for walking the dog. We have stayed in cabins located in the mountains and find it to be an exhausting drive to make it to the center of Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg to dine out or for daily needs. This house is quite literally 2-5 minutes away from restaurants and Walgreens as well as other stores. The neighborhood is quaint and village like with many rental properties lining the street. We didn't experience any issues with noise and found the neighborhood to be safe and enjoyable. The owners were very accommodating and we found the rental process easy to navigate. We make two trips a year summer/winter and we hope to spend them in this home. Thank you for our best stay yet in the mountains!

Great little getaway!
Great little getaway!
The description of this property was fair, but modest! What a fantastic place to stay. It truly is like staying at a relative's house. Very homey and welcoming. Everything was cleaned exceptionally well despite a bit of mold on the inside of the shower liner. The fireplace was soooo comforting after a long day of trekking though the New Year's crowd in Gatlinburg. With a family in tow it was nice to be more spread out instead of on top of each other in a tiny hotel room (and not to mention this house was definitely cheaper!!!) and also easier to prepare meals (as we are picky about food). The owner was so easy to work with and quick to respond to my emails. We will certainly keep this on our go-to list! My only negative is the chlorine level in the hottub - all 4 bathing suits are completely bleached out to light orange including my new $80 suit :( It's a risk you take but just be warned! Otherwise, very nice end to a day.

This is the best vacation house we have rented and we have stayed at quite a few over the past 15 yrs. while vacationing. This house has everything you will need for a great stay, location is great, neighborhood was quiet, house was immaculate, we do not have a single complaint, and we are very picky about where we stay. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas, we will definately be back. We stayed a total of 10 days and loved every minute.Karen made the rental process very easy .

Our oldest daugther recently married in Pigeon Forge TN and Home Away from Home says it all! The listing description is modest...this lovely home exceeded ALL expectations! The furniture and bedding appear new and are most comfortable, extremely clean and well maintained. The owners were accommodating of our requests to add additional reservation dates. This home is located so very close to all attractions yet COMPLETELY TUCKED AWAY IN A VERY PRIVATE LOCATION! This factor really amazed us upon arrival! Home Away from Home provided a stress free environment for the parents of the bride.

This was my second time staying at Home Away From Home. I plan on staying here again. This little cottage is the cleanest I have ever seen. It has everything you need except your clothes and food. The location is great, just a few minutes off the main drag in Pigeon Forge (light 6). I have stayed in several places in the past years, but none I liked so well as this one. It truely is a great place to stay. Thank you for sharing your home with me and my family. Gail - Waverly, Ohio

Great location and easily accessible. Neighborhood is quiet. House is comfortable with plenty of sleeping space for 6 (or more if children). Easy rental process and good communication from owners. Would recommend this property. Thanks for allowing us to rent your home.

Loved the House!!!Guest comment entered by owner
Loved the House!!!
Loved the house. Well decorated and very comfortable. Though it was just me and my Mom, we loved having two bedrooms since we are both use to our own. My Mom uses a walker, which sometimes makes hotels hard with all the hallways and elevators. We parked right next to the walk way and one step up to the porch... perfect. It was really nice to have the living room and not have to set on the beds, like you do in a hotel. A wonderful stay, easy to find, convenient for all we wanted to do. It would be a great place if you have kids as well. The back deck is lovely, though it was too cool for us to use it this visit. I would recommend this to anyone, and would definitely want to stay again.

Great weekend stay
Great weekend stay
What a wonderful mini vacation spent in Pigeon Forge at a 5 Star Cottage. It was everything as advertised. Easy access to food, activities and shopping. If your worried about security, don't, police station very close to cottage just off the beaten path far enough to have peace and quiet. Thanks for letting us enjoy this our time their, it was just like being in our home! Bill & Becky

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: Rick is a Mechanical Engineer and Karen is a Realtor. We love antique/classic cars and currently have a '56 Chevy Belair Convertible and a '56 Ford Crown Vic. Karen's favorite things to do are antiquing and hosting Tea parties in our home. We have 3 children and 5 grandchildren, 4 boys and 1 girl, ages 4-17. We also have a very much loved and spoiled Brussels Griffon, age 2, who does not know that he is a dog. His name is Griffin.
Why the Owner Chose Pigeon Forge:
In the late 90's we started coming to Pigeon Forge to participate in the classic car shows. We both loved the area, especially the mountains, so we decided we had to buy a home there. We searched for a week looking at properties all around Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. But, as soon as we walked into this home, we knew it was the one we had to have. It just felt like home to us. We love the location, being so close to all the attractions but at the end of a very quiet street. It gives us a quiet place to return to after exhausting ourselves from shopping, Dollywood, the Aquarium, more shopping, walking, well you get the picture. Not to mention the restaurants.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
At our home you will enjoy a community swimming pool, taking the dog for a walk around the neighborhood (no hills to climb here), reading the newspaper on the deck or, relaxing in the hot tub.
