About Ali Shinnick
Conor & I have long shared a dream of investing in a vacation rental home. Soakin’ in the Smokies is our first property, and we are so excited to offer this beautiful cabin to our guests! Conor is a commercial airline pilot and I, Ali, am a stay-at-home mom to our two kids, Piper & Jack, and our squishy and lovable 165 lb mastiff, Maggie. We live just north of Charlotte, North Carolina; an easy 4 hour drive from the cabin. We’ve established an A+ team of locals to handle the maintenance and housekeeping but otherwise manage the property entirely ourselves. I am a “people person” and you can expect prompt, personal attention from me throughout your rental process. We have high standards and desire all of our guests to have the BEST stay at our cabin!!
Ali Shinnick purchased this Cabin in 2018
Why Ali Shinnick chose Pigeon Forge
Our first visit to this area was in 2011, when we rented a cabin with extended family members in Gatlinburg. We were in awe of the beauty of the Smokies and delighted with how family-friendly the whole area was. That vacation provided such a perfect mix of family bonding time that was full of both indoor and outdoor adventure. We made memories for a lifetime. Seven years later, when the time was finally right for us to venture into the vacation home rental market, the Sevierville/Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area quickly sprung to mind. We love that this area truly provides something for everyone, regardless of age, physical ability, or interests.
What makes this Cabin unique
The pool!! We looked at tons of cabins, each with their own special features. When we came across this cabin, we said, “WOW!” An indoor pool cabin is not easily come by in this area, but an indoor pool cabin WITH gorgeous long views is an extremely rare find. We also love how spacious the cabin is, allowing as much family togetherness as you’d like, with enough space to allow some solitude as well. It is important to us that this cabin feels like a home away from home for our guests. Upon departure, we want everyone feeling like they just had the best vacation ever!

This was the perfect cabin for us. It had everything we needed. Decorated perfect. Pet friendly and a pool. Was an awesome find. Thanks Ali!
So thrilled you loved it! Please come again!
Great “staycation” place
With the current need for social distancing, this was a great place to get away and still keep the family safe and entertained. The cabin is beautiful, comfy and enjoyable. We liked the pool and hot tub and all the wonderful decks. We packed some kitchen supplies but they were not needed. It was well stocked and everything was clean. The owner is great and very responsive. We’ll be back again.
Thanks for the great review, Nicole! Please come again!
The cabin was fantastic. The features and amenities made it feel like a luxury resort. The only downside was, being close to other cabins, it was not secluded or quiet outside. But for me and.my.family, we.definitely will be back!
Thanks for the great review, Jennifer! I'm sorry to hear you had noisy neighbors during your stay-- that is not the norm. We'd be glad to host you again!
Ideal Family Cabin Getaway
I can not say enough great things about this cabin. As a family with multiple children less than the age of 5 we were looking for a cabin with enough space and activities to keep their short attention span occupied and this place exceeded our expectations. Having the pool and game room in the cabin makes it very convenient to entertain children indoors if you choose to stay in one day. Having the safety of a digital keypad lock as well as a manual elevated door lock alleviated any safety concerns for our small children. The views were spectacular and the cabins decor was warm and cozy. The little things such as having all the light switches labeled, the step stool, the towels, the appliances, the shampoo/soap dispensers all made the experience feel like a home away from home. Will definitely plan on coming back and would recommend it to all families!!
Thanks so much for this awesome review, Amit! It makes me so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the little things-- it was my goal to stock our cabin well enough that it feels like "home away from home" for our guests. Thrilled that it felt that way for you. Please come again!
Outstanding from start to finish!
The cabin was absolutely perfect for our 6 night stay with our 3 children. We throughly enjoyed the pool, hot tub and gaming room. The views were breathtaking and the cabin was BEAUTIFUL. It was super clean, well stocked, organized and comfortable. The decor was total perfection. Ali was great to communicate with and was quick to answer any questions we had. We all were teary-eyed leaving the cabin at the end of our stay- we did not want to leave. The location is perfect- while we enjoyed our privacy and views, it was a quick drive to the national park as well as the endless attractions in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Cannot wait to come back to Soakin' in the Smokies!
Thanks so much for this awesome review, Cara!! We’d love to host you and your family again.
My family absolutely loved Soakin’ in the Smokies!! It had everything to offer & more. Not once during our 3 day getaway did I hear ‘I’m bored’, which is unheard of with 4 kids. Ali was a pleasure to book with & quick to respond. We will definitely be back!
Thank you so much, Elizabeth! We’d love to host you again.
