About Michael Hinson

I am a small business owner in Rock Hill, SC. I spent my formative years in Rock Hill attending middle school and high school. From there, I went to Clemson University and graduated in 1999. Go Tigers! I bought into the family business in 2008 the year after I purchased the cabin.

Michael Hinson purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Michael Hinson chose Pigeon Forge

The primary appeal of this property was its LOCATION! I love that it is close to the parkway. Not only is it close to the parkway, it's centrally located on the parkway. Additionally, I like the coziness and openness of the cabin. The view isn't so bad either!

Being close to all the action helped make our stay the "Best of Times" for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved how quickly we could get from our front door to downtown Pigeon Forge and both Dollywood and Splash Country. The cabin accommodated our family of 10 very well. As we made plans for our stay, any questions we had were quickly replied to by the owner. The handbook compiled by the owner is very thorough and loaded with useful information. Both Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains are not far away, so we followed a recommendation made in the handbook and took our children and grandchildren on a tour led by "A Walk in the Woods Tour Company". From among the many choices they offer, we decided to participate in "Exploring Nature with Children". We were very impressed by Laura, our knowledgeable and energetic guide. She had the children (6-11 years of age) hanging on her every word. They had so much fun and were learning so many wonderful things about plants, animals, the ecosystem they were in, safety tips in the woods, using their powers of observation, respect for living things, taking turns. They walked in the creek or stood on rocks looking for salamanders and even learned how to make paint from wet rocks and then painted their faces. Oh and along the way they got wet and dirty.... What joy!!! It was two hours full of fun and learning in Nature's classroom. This tour only added to our best of times at "Best of Times" in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!

P.S. If you are hungering for a great breakfast, head for Sawyer's Farmhouse Breakfast Restaurant about a mile and a half from the cabin. You won't be disappointed. It's the home of a varied menu of delicious food choices, friendly staff who aim to please their customers and even someone going around making balloon creations of all kinds for your young diners. Try some of the mouthwatering cinnamon sugar syrup on you pancakes, waffles etc..

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here October 4-7, 2017 and absolutely loved our experience. We were so close to all the attractions we wanted to see while in Pigeon Forge. The cabin was very clean and accommodated all our needs. We will definitely consider this location on our next adventure to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. There are so many things to see and do that we didn't get a chance to do them all and we will be coming back. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your cabin.

best of times

  • 5 of 5

overall......the cabin met all our needs. the smoke alarm was going off when we arrived, so I called the owner. he said he would send maintence out....but no one ever came. the clothes dryer took forever to dry towels, which there was not enough of....had to wash them and the washcloths.

the kitchen was very well stocked with dishes and coffee makers.

Owner's Response: My apologies on the smoke alarm battery situation. I can confirm that I did contact the maintenance person and he did say he or someone from his crew was going to go out and replace the battery, etc. Since I didn't hear from you again, I assumed the situation was rectified. I should have followed up with either you or him to verify the service call was completed. I do apologize. Nevertheless, I am glad the cabin met your needs and I do appreciate your taking the time to leave a review!
