About Deanna - Childhood Memories Owner

I grew up in Kentucky in a large family long before computers and video games; it was a time when games like “kick the can” and playing in the old creek behind our house represented the sum total of my worldly ambitions. Every year we would go on a family vacation. We would all jump in the station wagon and fight over who had to sit on the “hump” while dad drove to the campground. We spent a week camping in some amazing national park – building fires, roasting marshmallows and singing campfire songs. It was fantastic time to be a kid and I would not trade those memories for anything.

Growing up during those times I learned that no one owes you anything in life and that hard work and honesty will get you far. My word and handshake was my bond.

It is with that attitude that I rent this cabin. I understand that you work hard for your money and I respect that. I will strive to give you the best possible value, vacation experience and enjoyment during your stay.

Deanna - Childhood Memories Owner purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Deanna - Childhood Memories Owner chose Pigeon Forge

Sherwood Forest is perfectly located just 1 1/2 miles from the Parkway to give you the isolation and quiet you want while being close to all the action. There are tons of activates within a few miles of the resort - Dollywood, restaurants, outlet mall shopping, zip-lining, go-carts, putt-putt golf, etc. It also sits right on the edge of the park allowing easy access. Gatlinburg is also a quick 5 miles away so you can go there for a day trip.

Smoky Mountain national park is a short 5 mile drive.

The Smoky Mountains are an amazing place - hiking trails, drive-to overlooks, biking, and animals galore. In recognition of the park's unique natural resources, the United Nations has designated Great Smoky Mountains National Park as an International Biosphere Reserve.

I am sure you will fall in love with its beauty the same way I did.

Family Rated it 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

The movie theater room was the overwhelming favorite of the family. Plenty of room for the family to enjoy time together and quiet sleep time. Excellent views. Very clean. Nice touches like gates at each stairway to keep the toddlers safe.

Beautiful Smoky Mountain Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family came from all over to gather in the beautiful Smoky Mountains for Thanksgiving and we were not disappointed! Our first time to the area and we could not get enough of the surrounding beauty, hiking, waterfalls, etc. The cabin is wonderful with parking enough for our 4 vehicles from UT, TX, IN & SC. The kitchen is well stocked and everything worked great. All beds and bedrooms were wonderful. The theater room and hot tub are an added bonus. We had 8 adults and 7 children under the age of 8. The scenic view from the balconies is stunning. We are extremely happy with our stay and look forward to visiting again in the future. Thank you Deanna for sharing your lovely cabin with our family!

It was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was because my son was getting married at Honeysuckle Hills and we were all from the Cincinnati, Indianapolis area. We had many family members attending so this worked out well. With all the floors available it kept everyone spread out and never felt cramped or overwhelming ( the many gates made our stay with 2 very busy toddlers so much easier)! We took advantage of the theater after the ceremony (festivities were over by dusk). Seating was so comfortable that a few missed a good bit of the movie for falling asleep! We were so lucky to have been there at the peak of the Fall . It was gorgeous and the weather (lower 70's and sunny) was perfect. Unforgettable !

The only negative( but must be mentioned) was that several stepped off the edge of the steps in the theater (at different times). The floor appeared to continue behind the center seats in the low light. Luckily no one was seriously hurt ( that is a major drop off!). A light installed under those steps might help.

Out of 10 stars I would rate a 9.5 (because of step incidents, luckily 84 year old mother was not included but two victims out of the four were over 50.)

My sisters and I visit this area every couple to few years so we WILL be back! Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you Joyce for taking the time to write a review and share your experience with future guests. So glad to hear you enjoyed the cabin and views. I appreciate the feedback you had trouble seeing in the dark theatre. We will look at the possibility of installing more lights on the steps or posting a sign that says not to turn the lights totally down. Thank you again for your business and hope to see you again.

Very nice, clean, beautiful, huge, very comfortable. We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. We all enjoyed the theater room, pool table and hot tub, the grill, kids loved the game systems. It was nice that the kids could spread out. They spent most of their time bottom to floors watching movies and playing when we were not sight seeing. So relaxing. It was so nice to just relax on the decks and enjoy the Beautiful view. It was nice and quite around us. The pool was just down the hill a bit and was very nice as well as the sauna that is by the pool. We all enjoyed our stay very much and are looking forward to hopefully return in the future. Thank you

Beautiful cabin and views

  • 5 of 5

Our family (8 adults & 7 kids) had a wonderful time in this beautiful cabin. There was plenty of space for kids to spread out and the hot tub was a big hit. We didn't really care if there was a movie theater but it was a nice feature especially in the afternoon when kids didn't want to nap. Deanna was very timely responding to any questions we had. We would definately recommend this rental.
