About Amy and Richard Greener
Hi I'm Amy Greener and along with my husband Rick, we own and self-manage our 6 cabins in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Our goal is to give you the best vacation rental experience ever. We hope to retire someday but for now, this is our family business and it keeps us busy! We would love to be your hosts at Swaying Pines.
Amy and Richard Greener purchased this Cabin in 2002
Why Amy and Richard Greener chose Pigeon Forge
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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 main bath. Humble beginnings, for sure :)

Damage and incidentals

We took a short family trip to get away from home and into the mountains for a few days. The cabin was clean, super cozy, well-kept, and exactly the right size for our family. The beds were super comfortable, the showers were large and still had that “new” feel. The kitchen is well-stocked and had plenty of space for cooking. While the cabin is pet-friendly, it doesn’t have any pet smell or hair or evidence of pets anywhere. The covered porch and hot tub were enjoyable, even though it rained most of the time we were there. The lake is just around the corner, and it’s an easy walk to get to and to walk around. And the location of this cabin is absolutely perfect. We will absolutely be back!
Thank you, Jen! It's so nice to receive praise from our guests and yours was especially heartwarming. We would love to have your family back and maybe next time the weather will be not so wet!
We went with another couple and we had so much fun! The Cabin was very nice and had so many accommodations that showed they really care about their guests. The hot tub was great! Would definitely stay here again!
Thanks Robyn! What a nice compliment. We are all about happy guests. We would love to have you back again.
I cannot day enough great things about this property, or Amy! The cabin was so clean, spotless upon arrival. When my kids run around barefoot and there isn’t a speck of dirt on their feet-you know it’s good & clean! Amy checked in with me the day of check in and was always quick to answer any question I had. The setting is so peaceful. A great place if you need away but also very close to town. The drive to the cabin was not bad at all! Ever since the fires came through, we lost our place we stayed for years. We are so glad to have found Swaying Pines and Amy because we will certainly be return guests. Cannot say enough great things! We can’t wait to come back and make more memories for future stays.
Thank you, Katie. It's great to know the cabin passed the "barefoot" test LOL. We're fortunate to have really solid housekeepers who do their best day in, day out. I hope we become your new "favorite" for future trips to the area. We'd love to have you back!
We had a short getaway and the location being more residential versus the typical cabin communities was perfect for staying off the beaten path! The deck was enjoyed and the hot tub was perfect. Well stocked compared to a lot of rentals as well.
Thank you, Michelle! I'm so glad you liked Swaying Pines for your retreat to the mountains. We are grateful to our guests for coming back to the area now that the national park and many businesses have re-opened. We would love to host your family again someday!
It was amazing! Had everything we needed! We had a great time. So peaceful.
Thank you, Natasha! I'm so happy your family enjoyed Swaying Pines. We are grateful your family could come and stay at the cabin for a much-needed break. Take care and I hope you'll be back someday!
