We live in Florida but have been vacationing here in Pigeon Forge with our family for 25 years. Have traveled quite a lot and use both timesharing and Airbnb/VRBO rentals with great success. Pigeon Forge has been our favorite repeat vacation destination for years due to atmosphere and variety of activities available.
Brian purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Brian chose Pigeon Forge
We enjoy the many faces of the mountains depending on time of year. Each season brings something unique: spring flowers, summer warmth, fall leaves, winter crispness and maybe a touch of some snow if you are lucky. There is a huge variety of activities in the immediate area from hiking, to shopping, to theme parks to just relaxing.
What makes this Condo unique
A comfortable place to call home with space to spread out and relax. Wireless internet, washer/dryer and balcony with views enhance your vacation. Quiet, private and yet close to everything area has to offer. At times you will hear the Dollywood train and roller coaster riders in the distance beckoning you to come join.

Nice place, friendly owner
This condo was nice and in a Beautiful area. Loved the private back balcony with a gorgeous view of the treetops! But had to knock down a few spiderwebs to enjoy it. Lol. Nice comfy king size bed in master, Huge jacuzzi tub, which we did not use, takes up majority of the master bathroom. The Owner was very nice and replied fairly quickly. We only had a few dislikes with this unit. When we first entered the unit, every time we entered it, it has a damp basement type smell, the smell became less bothersome within the first hour of entering. We were in town for our Anniversary and the Fall Rod Run was going on so we weren’t at the property for much other than sleeping, but when we were there, we kept spraying a room deodorizer to help with that. Also we did notice a paper towel under the kitchen sink that appeared to have been partially wet at some point and we wondered if maybe there had been some water leak at some point that has been corrected but still has the damage causing the smell, not sure. The master bathroom is dimly lit, the showers in both bathrooms are very dark, a working light inside them or at least in close proximity would be beneficial. When I climbed up to the jacuzzi surround to open all the blinds around it to let more light in the room, I walked thru quite a few spider webs, but the unit is in a remote location, this was the fairly country setting so it’s to be expected to have some critters making it home, just wasn’t expecting to be walking thru them on day one of entering the unit. Also, we saw/cleaned up several large silverfish bugs during our 3 day stay, probably another issue caused by the previous dampness that we smelled, they all were dead, we did Not see any live bugs in this unit. Last thing, which the owner has no control over, was the last two days of our stay we had upstairs neighbors with apparently heavy feet. This Host tells us they are fairly new to hosting guests and We feel the majority of these issues are addressable and with such nice and attentive owners we’re sure they will be and once they are, would totally recommend this unit, it is in such a beautiful area that feels secluded yet is very close to the action areas of Pigeon Forge.
Nice place, beautiful area, gorgeous view but 3 out of 5 stars -- interesting!
Conveniently located and clean
We stayed the first week of September 2018. This condo was located right off the beaten path but very convenient to everything! The condo was clean and big enough for my family of four. I enjoyed the jacuzzi in the master bathroom. I especially liked that the patio was large and private. However, if someone from the above condo is on theirs, you can hear them talking. The owners always communicated well. We enjoyed our vacation in Pigeon Forge. There is so much to see and do.
3 out of 5 stars when everything was great?? A typo? Ouch!
Beautiful and comfortable
Our stay at Smoky Mountain Retreat was fantastic! It was nice to sit on the porch after a long day and enjoy the view. Brian provided everything we needed for our extended stay. It was quiet, peaceful and very relaxing. We were there for 9 weeks and it was just like home. Brian responded very quickly through the entire process, great commuinication!
We are looking forward to another summer at Smoky Mountain Retreat.
You are great guests. We are very glad you enjoyed our home as much as we do. Hope to see you again as guests!
Nice place to stay, close to all the action
This 2 bedroom condo was just as advertised. It was clean, very nice view, and very close to Dollywood and all the other area attractions. It had good wifi ( important because my husband is always working, even on vacation) and TVs in both bedrooms which allowed us to watch March Madness while my son watched what he wanted! The fireplace was extra nice as it was cold here in March. Thanks for a great stay!
Linda, enjoyed having you as guests. Come back any time to enjoy another season in the mountains! Have added Bluetooth speaker as you suggested. Always nice to have your personal music with you. Thanks for the suggestion. Brian
Beautiful Condo with a great location.
Beautiful Condo located perfectly between Dollywood and the main strip. Beds were comfortable and condo was very roomy. Nice big back deck with a good view. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will def book this condo again.
Thanks! Sounds like you enjoyed the condo as much as we do. You are welcome back anytime. If you make another reservation, remind me you are doing a repeat visit. I will see about a discount for repeat visitors who respect and enjoy our home on the mountain top/side.
This ground floor unit was perfect for my needs. Large living/dining area and televisions in both bedrooms as well as living room. Nice balcony with great view. Very restful.
Unit is very close to Dollywood as well as other fun venues.
My grandchildren and I enjoyed our stay. The swimming pool was a bonus.
Marsha, it was a pleasure hosting you and your grandchildren. You have summed up our family's feelings on this great area to visit and perfect location to stay. I know you had a good time. You are welcome back any time. Problem-free returning guests like yourself get a discount on repeat visits. Remind me when you send in your next reservation request. Brian & Teresa
Dollywood Theme and Water Parks are 5 minutes drive and have excellent shows and food. Good assortment of roller coasters from wooden to new tubular upside down metal! Shows and music vary with the season from spring "International Festival" to fall "Harvest and Southern Gospel Festivals". The Smoky Mountain National Park is a must experience for both walking and driving tours depending on time of year. Each season is very different: spring, summer, fall and winter. Park rangers at Sugarland's Visitor Center can give suggestions on hikes/drives depending on ability and weather. Apple Barn in Sevierville is worth a visit for ice cream and fried apple pies. In the fall/winter Apple Farm is worth the hour drive toward Seymore. Lost Lake is worth the drive to go on a boat ride on an underground lake. The zoo in Knoxville is good. The 8 mile Craftman's loop drive outside Gatlinburg is worth a day. But -- be sure to take time to enjoy the view and peace and quiet from the mountainside porch.
