About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath Cabin, Sleeps 10

It's A Wonderful Life when you spend your vacation in the gated Shagbark Resort!

4 Bedroom Deluxe Cabin - 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 3 Baths - (Sleeps 10)

Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, USA (nestled between Gatlinburg, TN and Sevierville, TN)

The moment you walk through the front door of this modern log cabin you will surely think you've been given the moon and a handful of starry amenities to boot! With four bedrooms, It's A Wonderful Life will accommodate 12-15 people comfortably and is sure to make your life wonderful! That's right, even Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed would love the amenities and beauty built into this wonderful cabin.

Referencing the classic movie "It's a Wonderful Life", George Bailey (played by Jimmy Stewart) asks Mary Hatch (played by Donna Reed) What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea. I'll give you the moon, Mary".

Our Pigeon Forge cabin is friendly and inviting. Here's your chance to enjoy a "wonderful" view of your own.

Relax and unwind, gaze at the incredible mountain views, sink into the 5-person hot tub on the wrap around deck, kick back on one of two decks in our swing or any of our country porch rockers, enjoy a pleasant conversation around one of our two stone fireplaces, or watch one of 6 LCD Flat Panel TV's (catch a show or listen to XM radio on our satellite TVs or pop a movie into our DVD players).

If you're feeling a little more active, head to the game room for a round of pool on our new pool table, enjoy our air hockey table, or maybe a card game in the living room. Jump on-line with our exclusive Wi-Fi. Or, if the season is right, take a Dip in the community swimming pool, or bring your tennis racquets and basketball for a game on the court.

"It"s a Wonderful Life" also features a fully equipped kitchen for the chef and entire family to enjoy! The roomy kitchen is perfect for family gatherings and features a gorgeous country-sized dining table, a coffee bar table, plus two picnic tables on the deck for extra outdoor seating!

After a long day, feel free to adjourn to the master loft suite where you will experience more wonderful views. The suite has a king-sized bed, 32? flat screen TV, DVD player and a private bathroom with a cozy bubbling bedside Jacuzzi and shower. Or if you prefer being closer to the kitchen, the main master has a king-sized bed, 32? flat screen TV, and its bathroom includes a large bubbling jaccuzzi and shower. Kids and those more active may enjoy two bedrooms on the lower level sharing a fully appointed bathroom and game room.

And one more perk you might want to know: After thousands of nominations and votes, conferring among writers, editors and others, Frommer's has announced: "The Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP) was named the <a href=""> Top Family Destination in the world! </a>" And, our area was named the Most Romantic Getaway in America.

Bring your loved ones & see for yourself ...and we hope you have the most wonderful stay!

Unfortunately, we have many complaints about this cabin. The view was beautiful, but getting to the cabin is very difficult. Upon arrival we noticed that the railings and stairs are extremely loose and very dangerous. The rugs, couches, and linens need to be replaced---old and filthy and many of the linens had holes. Pull out couches weren't sleepable. We ended up getting an air mattress. We didn't sleep well because of critters in the walls in the loft. The loft shower leaks and we had to do repair work to get any pressure. One thermostat for a three story cabin made it difficult to make everyone comfortable. We made many wonderful memories with our family, but we won't be back to this cabin.

Beautiful Cabin but creatures lurking in the walls!

  • 3 of 5

My family of 5 just returned from the "It's a Wonderful Life" cabin. We have three children ages 4, 2, and 1. The cabin had a beautiful view of the mountains and the location couldn't have been better. We were really excited because the cabin looked very nice on arrival and the kids were able to have their own room to sleep in so they wouldn't wake each other up. It was great until my wife and I went to sleep in the upstairs loft and could hear feet scurrying on what we thought was the roof. I brushed it off, thinking that we were in the woods and that was just part of being so close to nature, but it did make it difficult for us to sleep at night since it was quite loud. The next night, my wife and I were sitting on the back deck at night enjoying the peace and quiet until we heard a hissing sound right next to us. We went running inside the cabin and looked outside and saw 5 raccoons scaling the house and walking along the deck looking for food. I thought that might have been the cause of the foot steps, chewing, and clawing sounds we were hearing at night, but it soon became obvious that the sounds were coming from above us and inside the walls (not sure if they could fit in there so maybe mice??). I'm still not exactly sure what type of creature(s) it was but it was extremely loud and freaked us out so bad we ended up leaving early from our vacation on the last night there since I found a large hole in one of the loft wood panels and knew there would be no sleep for us again! Summit Cabin rentals was notified but no offer was made to discount our accommodations for the inconvenience. We came here for a relaxing vacation and with 3 young children every second of sleep is essential for us all, but we couldn't sleep thinking that something could jump out at us at any time. My 4 year old even said she heard the noises in her room downstairs. We also noticed a leak from the loft bathroom shower into the bedroom below it near the kitchen. It would have been a great place to stay if not for those things, but we couldn't handle the lack of sleep and risk to the kids from whatever was in the house. Hopefully they rectify the situation for future guests.

Owner's Response: Dear Jason, Thanks for the review of our cabin, and we have to agree, it is very beautiful! Sorry the racoons were a disturbance during the nights of your vacation, and have to say that most guests love the visit from these awesome animals. Actually racoons tend to visit most cabins in the Smokies to look for the grilled foods that many guests leave behind for them. Since many guests enjoy their company (from a distance) it did not dawn on us to offer a discount for having them around, but we understand that the racoons are not all things to all people, and we want to offer an extra discount on any future vacations with us. Just give us a call and we will apply an extra discount to your reservation or supply you with a promo code to reduce the rental rate. We can guarantee you this 3-level, 4 Bedroom, luxury cabin does not have creatures living within it's walls, and can also do our due diligence and send pest professionals to insure the cabin does not and can not have pests coming inside the cabin. Also, due to the wooden construction of a cabin, if water escapes the shower onto the wooden floor, said water will find it's way into the room below, e.g. the kitchen. Again we are glad you chose to stay with us on your recent trip to the Smokies and we hope to have you stay with us again very soon!

Wonderfulcabin. Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

This place was at the top of the mountain. Had the best views. Enjoyed sitting in the hot tub on the wraparound deck. This is my new spot to vacation. I didn't realize there were so many things to do in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Surprised with the great weather in November. Wish I had more time to stay longer.

Wow! Wonderful Cabin! I can't believe how awesome the views were.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I went to Pigeon Forge again this year for the fall colors, but we decided to change it up and go to this cabin for the first time. Absolutely, top notch.

Spectacular views!!! The place had everything we wanted. Everything from their website being helpful, to the the rental guy being very nice, to the heavenly views - it was great.

The only thing I worried about at first was the drive up, but it turned out not to be a problem.

We had a great vacation. We'll definitely be calling them back again!

The epitomy of beauty!

  • 5 of 5

My entire family of five and I spent an extended weekend here and the cabin is absolutely gorgeous! We were all happy to find out that it looks exactly like the photos on the website, which was nice because sometimes websites show unrealistic images. This wasn't the case. This stay was definitely worth the money, I continue to recommend it to all of our family friends.

Although I told my children not to bring their internet gadgets, it was nice to still have some access to wireless internet. Also, the tennis courts were great, and in a beautiful setting.

Thank you for the opportunity to stay here! It's a vacation we'll never forget.
