About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

***Swaying Pines did not experience any damage from the recent wildfires***

Looking for something special and not a cookie cutter rental? Scroll down and read our reviews and discover what others are saying about this newly-remodeled, pet friendly rental. This cabin lives like your own home--comfortable, clean and convenient to everything in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Only 5 minutes to either town. And you're right around the corner from a 6 acre community lake, so it's great for taking family walks, exercising the dog or catch-and-release fishing. Swaying Pines is now in it's 15th year as a vacation rental cabin and we continue to make improvements every year. Come discover what our past guests are talking about!

* Private HOT TUB under roof
* Walk or fish at the PRIVATE LAKE 250 feet away
* Electronic DARTBOARD
* Pioneer STEREO system
* 42-inch Flat Screen TV in living room; 32' TV lower BR; 32' flat screen TV upper BR
* HIGH SPEED INTERNET (wifi) by Charter
* CABLE TV includes Local and Network channels
* GameCube with 20+ games
* LARGE GAME COLLECTION and toys for kids
* We're PET FRIENDLY: SMALL YARD is perfect for your pet (dogs only)
* UPDATED KITCHEN with eat-in bar
* New in 2014: WALK-IN SHOWER on first floor; KING LOG BED in master bedroom; STORAGE bookshelves by kitchen.
* New in 2016: NEW DECK and roof; WALK-IN SHOWER on 2nd floor; updated living room

The new deck is 50% larger than the original and features dining table seating for 6 plus 3 bar stools. The hot tub electronics have been replaced and updated as of February 2016. We will stain the new wood next year after it has fully seasoned.

Swaying Pines has 2 bedrooms and an open loft for sleeping quarters. The first floor bedroom features a king log bed while the upper bedroom has a queen size log bed. The loft has a double bed. We have also added a twin pullout bed in the living room. The ottoman converts in less than 30 seconds to a bed that will comfortably sleep a guest up to 200 pounds.

Swaying Pines's location is right between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg--only a few minutes' drive to either town. Well-paved roads with no scary mountain drop-offs or challenging curves. Just a steady climb that most vehicles can easily manage.

We have four other cabins, including VRBO listing 51745 'GrandView' and VRBO listing 134504 'TreeHouse Hideaway'. If a smaller 1BR cabin will do, please check out our VRBO listing 308275 'Water's Edge' or 816480 'Key to My Heart.'

Thank you for considering our pet friendly cabins. Even if you don't bring a dog along--and most of our guests don't--we pride ourselves in maintaining a fresh, clean cabin that you'll never know is pet friendly! Pet stays are a separate fee and must be approved in advance.

Owner info

Blue Mist Cabins

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Hi I'm Amy Greener and along with my husband Rick, we own and self-manage our 5 cabins in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Our goal is to give you the best vacation rental experience ever. We hope to retire to the Smokies someday but for now, this is our family business and it keeps us busy! Rick is a hydraulics sales engineer and the technical mind in our family. I'm the art-sy one with a long career as a voice talent but more recently a professional photographer who specializes in real estate and vacation rentals. We would love to be your hosts at Swaying Pines.

Why the Owner Chose Sevierville, TN, USA:
Lots of people ask us why we chose this area to buy a vacation rental, when there are so many beautiful properties in our home state of Michigan. Honestly, it boiled down to two big factors: money and weather. With three young children, we didn't have much money to work with. We were looking specifically for a modest, fixer-upper. And Michigan gets mighty cold after October, so we headed south for our cabin search. We love the Smokies, the history of the area and it's welcoming people. We've made many friends and acquaintances there over the years, and you can't help but feel that wonderful southern charm and hospitality wherever you go.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Swaying Pines is a hidden gem...only 5 minutes from either Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. We especially enjoy the short drive to either town when it's really busy, like holidays. The 6 acre lake is privately owned so you don't need to buy a fishing license. It's so relaxing to take a walk around the corner to the lake and drop a line...or just make a loop around the lake for some exercise. The horseshoes are lots of fun, too. It has been a joy for us to gradually update and upgrade the cabin and hear comments from guests who remember it having a blue exterior, dial up internet or the old jacuzzi in the bathroom (and no shower, ugh). Humble beginnings, for sure.
