Mercy & Jose Urrutia purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Mercy & Jose Urrutia chose Pigeon Forge

In 2006 we took a family trip to Pigeon Forge for the first time. We instantly fell in love with the area, its people, its beauty, and its serenity! We loved the cabin lifestyle and knew immediately that it would be our dream to own one. So during that summer, we began our search. We must have visited over 50 properties! 'Making Memories Too' was 'love at first sight!' It took us over one year to find it but in September 2007, we made it our own.

What makes this cabin unique

'Making Memories Too' is special because of its unique location. It is close to town. We are near the Pigeon Forge Parkway where most attractions are found and down the street from Dollywood's service entrance and the Gatlinburg Golf Course. The city of Gatlinburg is only about 15 minutes away! But, we are also far enough from the 'hussle and bussle'. This allows for the privacy and the closeness to nature one desires when visiting the Smoky Mountain National Park. Our favorite activities while visiting are hiking, snowboarding, white water rafting, zip-lining, and enjoying the area's diverse wild life and unique plant life. The cabin also sits on a 1/2 acre leveled lot which affords it ample parking and usable yard space. The kids just love being able to run around and play games on its yard! The cabin itself is like a 'doll house'! It has a wrap around deck, allowing total enjoyment of its natural surroundings while barbequing, or enjoying a dip in the jacuzzi, or just quietly rocking on its many rocking chairs or swing. The interior is spacious but cozy. The layout is perfect to allow privacy while still enjoying a family gathering. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for the challenge of even a Thanksgiving dinner! It is truly the perfect place to make lasting memories, thus its name 'Making Memories Too'. We visit often and truly love spending time at our home. It is truly magical! Our goal is to share our joy with our guests in the hope that you, too, make memories that last a lifetime!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Making Memories is a beautiful cabin. It was clean, cozy and filled with character. We had a vacation of a lifetime during our recent trip in December. The cabin had such an incredible homey feeling that our young son felt right at home. It was beautifully decorated and filled with all the necessary items. The views were fantastic! The location was convenient and minutes away from busy downtown but hidden and quiet at the same time. We can't wait to visit again and look forward to staying at Making Memories. We had wonderful time and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was a nice place! It was nice to relax in the hot tub after a hike in the Mountains! I suppose our only complaint would be that there was only one extra trash bag and that made it harder to clean up when we were ready to leave.

Owner's Response: Dear Kari, There is no better place to relax in after a long hike than in the hot tub! Its so amazing! We never tire of hearing about the wonderful time spent in the cabin. Thank you so much for your review. Housekeeping usually leaves 1-2 additional trash bags inside the trash bin. Kind regards, Mercy & Jose
