About Vi

Lives close by and loves the Smoky Mtns. We are retired and very active and wanted to get Into something else so we decided to take on a rental cabin. During our marriage we moved quite a lot due to my husbands work and we settled here in East Tennessee and we love it here. We have our children and grandchildren all living here as well.

Vi purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Vi chose East

Proximity to Parkway is what attracted us to it as well as the wall of windows because you can not see any other homes

What makes this cabin unique

1 mile to Parkway. Easy to get to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. Close to shuttle pick up as well


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

This cabin was the best, from the stonework, the woodwork, to the screened-in porch. It was beautiful. My family came celebrating anniversary and birthday and it was wonderful. When you look at the pictures there is no way to really capture the beauty of this cabin. Detail, detail, detail - so much detail. We normally want the snow, but the beautiful weather allowed us to do one of the trails and the screened-in porch allowed me to enjoy the nature as I read reclining on one of the lounge chairs. Vi could not have been more helpful!! We arrived after dark and it was a little tricky - we met the man on the private drive and he assured us we were not at Vi's place - too funny, but Vi stayed with us by texting and we made it safe and sound. She also gave some advice on places to eat and that was helpful too. I cannot say enough about this wonderful experience - wishing we could have stayed longer. As an added bonus - with all the floors up and down I did not have to worry about getting in my 10,000 steps for the day. If you want a wonderful place to stay with comfort, view and a great owner - this is the place for you!!! Five stars and thank you Vi!!

This is a wonderful vacation cabin. Close to parkway and right outside Pigeon Forge. All of our family loved this cabin with lots of space for everyone. It is very clean and has lots of little extras. The kitchen is well stocked with quality cookware and all the utensils you could need. There is a huge beautiful dining room. The game room is lots of fun. There is not only a pool table, air hockey and poker table but also lots of board games for everyone. We did not get to see a bear so they must be sleeping for the winter. If I were giving suggestions on things to make it better, I would be lost for words because it is so great. It was perfect for our family of 8. Wonderful cabin with wonderful owners that help in every way they can. Thanks again for sharing your cabin with us! We hope to come back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you guys for the great review! We are so glad you could all be together to enjoy family time. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the cabin and found it close to everything you wanted to do. We want to thank you for staying with us and to thank you for understanding when the refrigerator decided to go out right before Christmas. We are so glad we could get one delivered in time. We appreciate your understanding and help. We do hope you return and perhaps next time you will see that bear!!!

Better than ever expected

  • 5 of 5

I haven't had a vaca in yrs. Due to terribly devastating fire in Sevier County, I was worried I would wait even longer. SO SO happy Vi's Cabin was not affected, & Pigeon Forge opened in time. Vi kept me up to date on all conditions of the area. She is just a GEM to help us out. I had such a wonderful, long over due, away time with family. The stay was wonderful. No one wanted to leave. The cabin was supplied with so many things, like being at home! Of coarse bring your own groceries. There is more than enough sleeping, bathrooms, relaxing, eating in, & even be by yourself room. FOUR STORIES, ALL AMAZING. Plenty to do if you're staying in a bit, or just waiting on others to get ready, huge game room, excellent TV reception, WIFI, scenery, & warm cozy fireplaces. I'm already checking the calendar for a return trip. It was a very special stay, with help of a VERY special person.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for all the kind words! I am so glad that we could be part of your vacation plans. You and your family were so easy to work with and appreciate so much how nice you left the cabin. We installed a brand new refrigerator since your visit and will be replacing all the windows with screens in the glassed in porch, so they can be opened for some fresh air in that room. Also I want to add how surprised I was when I received such a beautiful card and gift basket! Wow! That was beyond sweet. We would welcome you back at any time. Thank you again.

Vi's place was so lovely and comfortable. Great for families and friends to getaway to!! Had such a great time!! Scenery was amazing and surroundings were so quiet. Close to Parkway for shopping and resturants and attractions. Would definitely recommend staying there!! Owner was a joy--she bent over backwards to make sure cabin was spotless and comfortable for us!! She was amazing!! Didn't want to leave!!

No place like "Vi's Place "

  • 5 of 5

We were the first to occupy the cabin after the horrific fires in Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains.This is a trip my 4 sisters and I were planning for some time and would have been sooooooo disappointed if we had to cancel. Thankfully the fires did not come near Vi's Place. Vi's Place is beautiful and very spacious. I have stayed at larger cabins with my husband's large family and Vi"s kitchen is much better stocked. She supplies items i have never seen anywhere else. So if you forget a common item used in cooking .... it's probably already in Vi's kitchen!! Such a large game room, too!! Really nice for cold weather, stay- in family time. We only took in the Titanic, did a little shopping and spent the rest of the time at the house. So warm and cozy. The two fireplaces produce good heat.

Vi is really great too! She is very cordial, and makes sure all of your needs are cared for. You a

I would highly recommend her place to families. Sister getaways like we had, and couples getaways, etc., etc. I am looking forward to returning myself...thank you Vi

Vi's Place was even better than the listing description! The cabin was beautiful! It was very clean and very well stocked. The cabin has 4 levels so there was plenty of privacy for my 11 month old twin grandchildren when they were asleep and plenty of space for the rest of the family to socialize.

The customer service was awesome! Vi was in constant contact with me making sure everything was ok and our stay enjoyable.

I highly recommend Vi's Place for your next stay in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg.
