About the property

5BR/3BA, Mountain View, Sleeps 12-14, Mountain Shadows Resort

Experience the magic and beauty of the Smoky Mountains at Brigadoon, named after the famous Gene Kelly movie about a mythical and magical village in the Scottish Highlands. We have lovingly furnished, equipped add added thoughtful touches and rustic décor to our cabin, creating an enchanting place to call home during your stay in Gatlinburg.

Brigadoon is the ideal mixture of log-cabin charm and modern amenities, with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms laid out over 3 spacious floors. In the winter months, you'll savor sweeping views of the mountains from the full length back deck, complete with rocking chairs perfect for sipping coffee as the sun rises, or curling up with a good book. During the spring, summer and fall months, you’ll feel like you’re living in a spacious treehouse, tucked up in the leafy branches of the surrounding trees. We love the evenings, especially a spot of stargazing from the hot tub. Stress? Not here!

With 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the cabin can comfortably sleep up to 14 people. The master suite on the main level includes 1 king bed and en-suite bathroom with double sink, toilet and large shower. On the lower level, you’ll find 1 queen bedroom, 1 king bedroom and a bunk room with two sets of twin bunk beds where the kids can crash. There is a shared large bathroom with double sink, toilet and large shower. The fifth bedroom is found on the loft level and has 1 king bed and an en-suite bathroom. If you need even more space for people to sleep, the living area has a queen sleeper sofa.

In the kitchen you'll find stainless steel appliances including a fridge (with ice maker), microwave, dishwasher and range. The cabinets are fully stocked with pots, pans, toaster, coffee maker, tableware and silverware. There's also a conveniently located outdoor industrial grill on the upper deck, accessed from the kitchen. Enjoy your meal at a dining table that seats 6, with further seating at the large wraparound kitchen bar.

No one will be bored during your stay at Brigadoon, with 7 flat-screen TVs, video library, PlayStation2 with games, and a cupboard full of board games. A large gaming area on the loft level, with a pool table and air hockey table, adds to the fun. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, cool off in the shared Mountain Shadows Resort swimming pool. Year-round you can enjoy barbecues, a playground and sand volleyball in the community facilities.

Thanks to all the peace and quiet, you’ll get to truly unwind and unplug. However, if you do need to stay in touch with the outside world, the cabin has excellent free Wi-Fi (utilizing google mesh Wi-Fi) with full coverage throughout the cabin.

We are located in the Arts and Crafts area of Gatlinburg, with the splendor of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Mt. LeConte on your doorstep. Downtown Gatlinburg, offering something for all ages, is just 3 miles away. Within easy reach of the cabin is Ober Gatlinburg, Ripley’s Aquarium and a plethora of restaurant choices, from good old down-home cooking to pizza to breakfast. Pigeon Forge is nearby too, with Dollywood, Dixie Stampede, theaters and amusement park.

Our amenities are second-to-none, but our owner-rented property also offers a little something else to make your stay special—personalized attention and attention-to-detail to your needs. Visit us for yourself to experience 'A Touch of Magic in the Smokies' at Brigadoon.

Thank you for considering 'Brigadoon' for your vacation in the Smokies.

About Debbie Rainford - Owner/property manager

My husband and I both grew up in England and moved to the United States (the Cincinnati area) over 20 years ago. We have always enjoyed vacationing in the Smoky Mountains and have been repeat visitors with our family for many years. We have stayed at many cabin locations throughout the region and were delighted when we were able to purchase this cabin which is located in our favorite location of all - above the Arts and Craft Community of Gatlinburg and close to all the other fun activities the area has to offer.

Debbie Rainford - Owner/property manager purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Debbie Rainford - Owner/property manager chose Gatlinburg

We have a lot of experience as vacation guests of many other cabins and, as such, have provided what we consider to be the best of all worlds into our own cabin to ensure a memorable experience for our visitors. We feel a combination of rustic charm, combined with all the modern amenities of today (such as HDTV's, WiFi and Internet, Video games, Pool Table, Large Spa, Gas grill and well equipped kitchen) as well as a location that is quiet and peaceful, but very accessible to local shops and attractions is the way to go. New heating and air systems with expanded airflow ensures a comfortable environment throughout the cabin in all seasons. Newly stained and sealed for a beautiful exterior (it gleams in the sunlight) as well as free from drafts and air leaks. The location of my cabin was also critical. In the Mountain Shadows Resort you have facilities such as a community pool, pavilion and outdoor playground. The cabin is nestled among trees and wildlife but not totally alone. The cabin is on a quiet road with other cabins where we all enjoy a superb seasonal view of the Smoky Mountains. The sunrises over the mountains should not be missed from the rocking chairs on the upper deck or the spa on the lower deck. Access to local shops are a short drive away and of course the Smoky Mountain National Park, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge or all within easy reach.

What makes this cabin unique

Our whole family fell in love with the cabin when we first saw it without furnishings and realized its potential. The cabin is very spacious, well laid out and the views from the decks beautiful. We set about equipping it with all of the furniture and equipment that would exceed the expectations of all ages and interests of our guests. We love to sit in the log rocking chairs in the mornings, drinking our tea, as we plan our day together. At night, my family and I really enjoy the hot tub while looking at the stars. For those interested in playing pool you can have a friendly game on the upper loft area while still keeping up with the latest sports or news on TV. In the evenings, we also enjoy relaxing in the main room while watching a good movie together on the 55' HDTV. When you retire to the privacy of your own room, it is a great feeling to be in a log bed, with top of the line pillow top mattresses and watching some late night TV. If you have kids, there is plenty for them in the bunk room. The log beds are fun to climb and the PS2 games always a hit.

Couldn't be more impressed....

  • 5 of 5

We don't leave till tomorrow, but I wanted to be sure I got our review in!

We met for our family Christmas here, as we do every January, and we couldn't be more impressed!

The first thing I need to stress is communication. When you aren't local, it can make it really difficult, but they made it SO easy. The pre-arrival information was extremely in depth, and filled with all the questions I would normally have but forget to ask. Post arrival, however, was spectacular. There was a little weather during our stay, and before we even knew there was going to be weather, I had text messages alerting me to what was coming, when to expect snow removal, etc. We got constant updates as the weather forecast changed!

Everything in the cabin is well labeled with instructions, so you always know how to use something. It was spotless on arrival, and had all the basics we needed to have right on arrival (toilet paper, paper towels, spices, dishsoap, laundry soap). I love to cook, and often find cabins are not well enough stocked for lots of cooking. Not so here. I was able to find anything I needed, which is a huge boon for me when cooking for 11 for 6 days.

We don't go out and about much, we tend to hang at the cabin as a family, but I would recommend Crockett's Breakfast Camp for at least one breakfast!

Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you Glen for your review. Our guests love being so close to all the fun activities Gatlinburg and the surrounding area has to offer. Unfortunately, the cable company, Spectrum, had an internet issue during your visit. This is rare and our guests usually enjoy excellent WiFi during their stay.

Cabin was comfortable and we'll equipped with amenities. My family enjoyed the time together.

  • 4 of 5

The games area in the loft clashed with the parlor area below and made conversation and television and movie viewing difficult. The living and dining area was cramped for the twelve of us,yet comfortable when we made adjustments. View of the mountains was less than hoped for, but with the cold weather,we didn't venture out much. The overall experience was good since my children and grandchildren were together... again. That's the really important part. Thank you for opening your cabin to us.

Owner's Response: Hi Dave, Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I am glad you had fun spending time with your family but disappointed it was less than you hoped for. As with a lot of cabins in the Smokies, the loft area has the pool table, air hockey table and gaming machine. If play is noisy and quiet t.v. watching is wanted, the cabin does have 7 flat screen t.v's to choose from. Overall the cabin has just over 2850 sq feet not including the two full length balconies at the back.

The cabin was in a great location. Very cozy cabin. The only thing that was an issue for us was the size of the kitchen/dining/living area. It was a little small. We really enjoyed our stay and all the amenities the cabin had to offer. I would recommend this cabin.

Owner's Response: I appreciate you submitting a review, Jolain. Brigadoon is only 3.2 miles from Gatlinburg and a little closer to the beautiful National Park. Restaurants, shows, amusement attractions, shopping and golf are also within a short drive.

Owner's Response: Thanks Luisa! My husband and I rent Brigadoon ourselves and do not use one of the large rental companies in the area. This allows us to maintain very high standards and to be personally available should our guests need us.

Brigadoon is located in Mountain Shadows Resort, approximately 11 miles from Pigeon Forge and 3 miles from Gatlinburg. There is so much to do in Gatlinburg and the surrounding area. Too many beautiful hiking trails in the Smoky Mountain national park itself to mention but see this great website for previews and advice. We particularly find those with waterfalls are always worth the walk to get there. We enjoy the outlet shopping at the Tanger Outlets in Sevierville and skiing and ice skating at Obergatlinburg during the winter. Close to our cabin we particularly enjoy visiting the Great Smoky Mountain Arts and Crafts community where you find local artists practicing their crafts as well as the opportunity to shop for unique items you do not get at home. In Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge there are many restaurants and attractions. Just over the mountain is Cherokee, and the Cherokee ran casino T with more shopping and attractions. So much to do for all tastes and ages.
