About Alicia

Hi. My name is Alicia and if you are like our family of five who LOVE to travel, you want the comforts of home when you're on vacation. That's our focus as the owners of Smoky's Retreat -- providing our guests clean, updated accommodations that won't break the piggy bank. My husband Keith and I own two cabins (Smoky's Retreat VRBO # 499017 & Smoky's Lodge VRBO # 378323) and make it our top priority to work on them several times a year...maintenance, improvements or just deep cleaning. We think you'll notice our attention to detail as soon as you arrive.

Why Alicia chose Sevierville

We purchased this cabin because we LOVE the great location!!! You can be in the center of everything if you want within 5 minutes or you can stay secluded in the mountains if you chose to do that too. 'Mountain View' is in our address for a reason. Plus there are no winding roads to get stuck on. There is a Kroger's and Publix grocery store less than 2 miles from the cabin to get all last minute items so you don't even have to get on the parkway or fight traffic to get to it. Also where our cabin is located on a private cul-da-sac, our three small children can run and play outside for hours. Our family loves this cabin and we think your family will too!!!

What makes this cabin unique

If you want privacy, comfort and a convenient location, then Smoky's Retreat is perfect for you. Of our two cabins, Smoky's Retreat is where we prefer to stay when we're here with another family with kids or my parents who are in their late 60's/early 70's. It's 2.6 miles to the Parkway at Light 3 in Pigeon Forge...less than 5 minutes. I love the kitchen for making meals at the cabin, the WIFI for checking emails, the spacious bedrooms and memory foam beds for a good night's sleep...the private covered porches...the two person jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom...the extra large 6-8 person private hot tub...and the feeling that you're up in a tree house looking out to the mountains through the trees. It's so private and peaceful. It truly can't get any better than this!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for opening up your beautiful cabin for our family to enjoy. Our son and family from Ft Lauderdale, and our other son from Kingsport found this to be a great place in the mountains for our family get-together. We appreciate your very warm hospitality and hope to come and visit again soon!

We wish you the very best and do so appreciate all you did to make sure our accommodations and visit was perfect!

Last Minute Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Booked a last minute weekend family get together trip to Pigeon Forge. Stayed at this cabin and it was excellent! Kids and adults enjoyed the game room upstairs, and the hot tub on the back deck. Lots of windows for viewing mountains. Cabin was decorated for the Christmas season, and wood work on inside gave the real cabin feel!!! Owners were super helpful and accommodating! Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay, and close to everything. Thanks for sharing you cabin!

Very nice northwoods atmosphere

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was nicely decorated but noticed some cosmetic issues with the sofa’s in the main living area. They are becoming ragged and torn on the back pillows and arms. Currently being hidden by large pillows. Little concerning on our arrival to the cabin. The door was not locked. I have stayed in many cabins and there are usually a little more basic supplies available. There is dishwasher soap left for use but no dish soap. Not everyone uses the dishwasher for all washing. A small refillable bottle of dish soap wound be nice along with a small bottle of hand soap for the kitchen. There was only 1 garbage bag for the kitchen trash. Also not 1 baking sheet found for the kitchen. The outside balconies and patios have hanging can ashtrays which were full of large cigars amongst other things. On the good note the place was nicely decorated for Christmas which was one of my main reasons to stay at this cabin. The sad part for me was the inside noise. The place (probably the same at most of these type of vacation rentals) was hollow inside. The sound carried from the living room to the upstairs bedroom, and from the 1st floor bedroom to the upstairs bedroom and vice versa. Since we had smaller children sleep was very difficult. The location and neighborhood was nice. Not sure if I would stay again. Just my own quarks I guess.

Owner's Response: I hate to hear you were disappointed with our cabin. The two leather couches downstairs just started to peel less than a month ago. Since the couches are less than 3 years old we reached out to the furniture store and also the manufacturer. They both believe a past guest must have sprayed or got some sort of lotion on the leather. We have ordered new custom couches to replace those 2 weeks ago but due to the bad weather up north delievery has been delayed. My housekeeper did apologize for not locking the door as they left because they were trying to rush to have it ready early for you and had only been unlocked about an hour prior to your arrival. As far as supplies, a starter supply of liquid dish soap (left under the sink), dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, hotel soap bats in bathroom, trash bags (2 left in inside trash can along with one in each of the 2 outside trash cans), toilet paper and paper towels. Starter supplies are only meant to get you by for a day or two max and not meant for an entire stay. We have this stated on our listing along with including this in your email after booking and have a recommended list of items to bring. For metal baking pans they are stored in the drawer under the oven but we have tons of Pyrex bake wear in multiple sizes from small to extra large because this is what is recommend to bake with. I even give guidance on the best way to bake items like biscuits to keep from burning the bottoms because there is a huge difference in baking here in mountains vs back home. The higher elevation doesn't do well with metal bake wear. I do apologize about the cigarette butts and so does our housekeeper for missing the ashtray that was moved up to the back corner of the upstairs balcony. It's not normally stored there and she doesn't go there. Normally it's somewhere else and did not realized someone had moved it up there. Now with the sound, it is an all wood cabin with wooden floors, wooden walls and wooden ceilings. Sounds does travel when the kids are playing with the air hockey table (which is a very loud activity with the clacking of the plastic pucks...which is why we've thought about removing) and when someone hits a pool ball off the pool table and it hits the hard wood floor in the loft. I really wish you had informed me you could not locate the extra trash bags, oven pans or dish soap when I reached out to make sure everything was perfect or even when I checked to make sure everyone was safe after it snowed.

Winter Wonderland at Smoky's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Smoky's Retreat was a great location for all the attractions in Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The cabin was cozy and peaceful. We had a great stay! The best part of your stay was the owners came in while we were out for the day and decorated the cabin for the Christmas holiday. It was like the Smoky Mountain Christmas Elf came down and decorated. She even left Christmas music play so when we walked in it was like a winter wonderland!!
