Here is your chance to rent a 2,200 sq. foot chalet in Dollywoods backyard. Listen to Dollywoods choo-choo from the front porch. The view will take your breath away.
Ache for your own little piece of heaven when you vacation in the Smokies? Here is your chance! This cabin is surrounded by over 2 acres..your own private drive. The kids have a place to safely explore.
Large decks adorn the front of this cabin. Private deck with an amazing view from the master bedroom on the second floor.
Dollywood is less than one mile from this beautiful cabin. So remember to enjoy a day at Dollywood while vacationing at our cabin.
Dolly's Splash Country is a hop skip and a jump away from our cabin...so reward yourself with a day at the water park.
My husband and I live and work in Sevier County so we'd be more than happy to answer any questions about our area that you may have. We've loved living in this area for the past 17+ yrs and we count ourselves very fortunate to call these mountains home.
Shawn & Willow Schwartz purchased this chalet in 2009
Our cabin is centrally located in the heart of all the attractions Pigeon Forge/Sevierville/Gatlinburg have to offer.
Our cabin is fully stocked with all the amenities to make your vacation a memorable one.
Our cabin has its very own game room with an arcade that will play 60 of the classic games (Pac Man / Ms Pac Man/Donkey Kong/etc) in one standup arcade machine. We also have a pool table and a crane in the kids bedroom stocked with fluffy stuffed toys!
Our unique benefit for this cabin is....we own and rent one cabin in Pigeon Forge ... so you can expect our cabin to be meticulously clean for we keep it up ourselves. Also since we the owners live right here we're only a hop skip and a jump away
Just returned from a wonderful stay at this cabin. Great view of the Smokey Mountains. Secluded, but not far away from all the attractions. The pool table and arcade machine were big hits with the kids(the grown ups liked them too😄. Because we travel to Tennessee every year, I will definitely return to Camp Run-A-Muk.
Would Stay there again? No
NOTE: XX is used for cost, VRBO will not allow actual cost in review, had to edit.
Best view, worst owner.
View, Location, Grill w/ Propane, Video Game system
No Pet fee for first pet
Beds need to be replace. (Most have a big dip in them) The Hide-a-beds cannot be used at all, they really bad.
Thermostat cannot be changed (controlled by owner via Wi-Fi), other than 3 degrees. House was too cold downstairs. (70-73)
Cheap kitchen utensils. Handle fell off pan on stove while cooking eggs, we never dropped it, just cheaply made. (see below)
Expects renter to do 3 loads of laundry before leaving or charge extra $XX. So get up early and do laundry before checkout time.
Refrigerator can stop working.
Be aware owner has camera(s) on house. He monitors when you come and go. (see below)
Refrigerator temp setting are right beside the water button on front of fridge. If the kids touch them, the refrigerator will freeze up. We called the owner he said you have to pull out the fridge and unplug it for the night. We found out this once our ice cream melted. Store is just down the road to get ice to save your milk.
Once you get there and see the notes everywhere about charges. You initially get the feeling that the owner has had some bad renters.
When we left we took out all the trash, DID 2 LOADS of SHEET/TOWEL LAUNDRY (1 still left, ready to go). Washed the dishes and cleaned the rooms.
Assume a $XX cleaning fee, you will pay the extra $XX. Also if something falls apart, stop by the dollar store and buy one to use and one to leave untouched.
Security Deposit: After 2 weeks owner contacts you: Here is our correspondence verbatim:
Shawn Willow Schwartz:
"You were refunded $XX on Feb 12, 2016 Broke handle off brand new skillet that has never been used. Just put in cabinet. Left at 9:00 in morning with sheets and towels not washed."
"The skillet handle broke off the first time we used it. It was not dropped. Soon as it heated up. It fell off. If brand new then it was defective.
Also we had to buy ice and ditched food because fridge broke. We did the laundry we could."
Shawn Willow Schwartz:
"You turned up fridge and froze it u know that don't even bother me with such foolishness. You clearly didn't do laundry you left at 9:00. And pan was broke by you. I only charged you $XX so just shut up about it no more lies or I will keep all of your deposit. I can still change it if you want me to.
If you need to unwind from working too much or simply need to relax for couple of days, this is a great place to stay. Just sitting by the kitchen, stretching your legs and overlooking the Smoky Mountain, IT IS AWESOME!!! The ambience is so different! I can highly recommend to rent this cabin!
This cabin definitely has a cozy worn feel to it, Yes I said worn. It is not a spit-shined place at all. It is big & & has the pool table with an arcade game that has 60 different games on it. So the cabin was an average accommodation for to my friends & family. The hidden linen cleaning fee is complete BS! it is impossible to take showers, pack vehicles, eat breakfast, & strip/wash all linens to put back on beds by 11:00. So I just paid the $50 for them to clean the linens. That means I paid $140 total for cleaning fees! The roof had two leaks in the dining room. There was no way I was going to let my grandson play in the hot tub from all the dirt that was visible in it. The driveway is a SOB! Good thing I had my Jeep. All in all, I liked the cabin, just thought it was over-priced per night and the extremely high cleaning fee. As of yet, I have not heard from the owners about the roof leaks nor have I seen my deposit returned. I will wait 7-10 business days before I start calling. I would stay here again only if it was short notice for me personally.
The cabin was great,plenty of room for everyone.My husband and I and my mother,my son and his family(4 KIDS)--We really enjoyed the view;and it was great that we got to take our dog along.Look forward to going back again soon!!!
There is a site glitch that won't let me pick the right date. We were here in July, 2014. Please believe that earlier review saying that they will keep your deposit just because they can. This is a mediocre cabin owned by hateful people that treat their customers terribly after they have gotten their money from them. I rented their vacation cabin and put up the REFUNDABLE deposit. We have been back a week and a half and I emailed just to ask when the refund is usually given and in what form it is administered. Our computer got fried by lightning so I couldn't go back to see how I originally paid so I was just wanting to know where to look for the money. I was met with instant hostility and sarcasm. Then, he just told me he was keeping my deposit. We did everything we were supposed to do and more on leaving (lots of extra cleaning that wasn’t required). He is just keeping my deposit because he has anger issues. I will copy and paste the email chain here for you to see how irrational he is. They will probably try to deny it but I have turned them in to vrbo and the East Tennesse Better Business Bureau (where I see they have been turned in before). Here it is:
ME-I have emailed you twice to no response on this. How soon and in what form do we get the $200 deposit back? My computer got fried by lightning so I can't go back and even see how I even originally paid you. I was just wondering if we get a check or does it go back on the card? Thanks
OWNER-I don't need to respond to anything. I was on vacation. Havent been in 2 years pal. U will know when I know.
OWNER-U just left a week ago.
ME-I know that. I was just wondering. There's no need to be sarcastic. I was just asking a question and wasn't sure if the emails were getting through because I was getting no response. I in no way was asking for the money back now. I was just wanting to know where to look for the money when it is returned. That is a terrible way to treat your customers. I can't believe that is your hateful response.
OWNER-Oh I just remembered you won't be getting ur deposit back. You had the sarcasm. And don't ever tell me what I need to do. Pal
As you can see, all I did was ask a question and got treated like that and my deposit stolen from me. There’s tons of options down there so rent from someone else that appreciates your business.
Pigeon Forge is a beautiful area to visit...the mountains are the backdrop to all the fun and excitement one can have in our area. Shopping is abundant here...outlets galore.

We have Dolly's very own Dixie Stampede and our newest shows in town include the Lumberjack Feud and The Hatfields & McCoys.
