About Genia Dufour

I am a married, 59 year old business woman. We own another home in this area that we do not rent and use only as a vacation home. We have several businesses and would love to move to the area except for our businesses. I have personal friends in the area to do house cleaning and repairs and maintenance that are reliable and dependable.

Genia Dufour purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Genia Dufour chose East

We chose to buy here because we have another home here. This property is unique and has one of the best views of the mountains that can be found in the area. We love the peace and quietness

of the area and the proximity to all the things good about this area. We added touches to Moonshine Cottage that you don't ordinarily find in overnight rentals so our renters can really

feel at home and safe. No crowded complex with noise--just nice family atmosphere. God added the beautiful view!

What makes this cabin unique

Privacy yet close in with great views and wildlife!

Mountain memories

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Moonshine Cottage. It certainly will NOT be our last. Well appointed, immaculately clean. Views were breathtaking. Genia is a terrific person to work with and you will love this home. 5 adults stayed in our family and plenty of room. 2 kings--sooo very comfy and 1 queen that my 13 year old wanted to take home. Far enough away to really feel the peace of the smokies but a quick drive and you are in the heart of pigeon forge. Highly recommend!!!!

Beautiful view and charming cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was everything I wanted and more. The view was spectacular and I loved the chairs on the deck. The kitchen was well appointed, the rooms were comfortable, the space was tastefully decorated and very homey. I could live there happily. It was also close enough to town but still felt private and remote. I will definitely be back.

Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin. It is beautiful, clean, and private. There are a couple of cabins nearby but you can't see them from the porch, so it feels very secluded. The road up the mountain is a bit crazy but I guess it's necessary to get such gorgeous views. The location is great and very convenient. We would not hesitate to stay at this cabin again. Highly recommended!

Wonderful Cabin, Wonderful Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Pigeon Forge for a quick getaway with our kids and parents before the school year started back up. It was a wonderful trip due to the great hostess Genia and the accommodations of her cabin. The cabin is in a great location; close enough to the strip to get to any attraction quickly yet just enough off the beaten path to feel private and secluded. The views were excellent, the beds so comfortable, and the time beyond memorable. I will definitely book this cabin again! Thanks, Genia!

We absolutely loved this cabin. Genia was such a gracious host. The views were spectacular - even better than we imagined from the pictures. The cabin was fully stocked and furnished with everything we needed. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us.

A quiet hideaway perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

After deciding to take a last-minute trip to the Pigeon Forge area, we were fortunate enough to discover Moonshine Cottage. We were blessed to learn it was available for the days we needed! This cabin is very comfortable for six, and roomy enough for eight. The three bedrooms and two bathrooms were comfortable, and the beds were top quality. There are beautiful views from the decks, with so many nice touches like candles and decorations to add a honey feel. Genia, the owner, was such a pleasure to work with, and available for any questions. My husband would have enjoyed a recliner in the living room, but all the furnishings were so comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening and the pool table upstairs. The appliances were very nice and easy to use. I highly recommend this cabin.
