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 Pigeon Forge

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

Totally charming

  • 5 of 5

First, I would like to thank the owner Vi for being there every step of the way. Easy and pleasant to talk to and they even left a welcoming gift for me and the family. As far as the cabin goes, location, location, location. Situated 5 minutes from the parkway, it was the perfect location and close to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area attractions. Cabin was clean and the beds were comfy. The kitchen was well stocked with spices, salts (stuff that other cabins usually don't have). My only complaint about this stay was that it was too short. Thanks again Vi for your hospitality, hope to come back some day.

Very clean and great location!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 (2 couples and a single) stayed for 3 nights. The location was superb, centrally located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The entire place was very clean, tidy and well decorated. The kitchen is well stocked and there is a huge table off the kitchen perfect for big meals and game nights. As with any 4 story cabin, it's very hard to regulate heat evenly, so the bedroom on the bottom floor was very cold while the top bedroom was very warm. We were thankful for the 3 space heaters to carry around wherever we were hanging out in the house. A few improvements worth considering are:

- Brighter lightening in the main living area

- A shower in the master bedroom

- Mirrors and luggage racks in the bedrooms

Overall, the stay was great and made for a great getaway! Thanks, Vi!!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your review of the property. As with any property, everyone has different preferences and we try hard to constantly improve and appreciate your feedback. With the jetted tub upstairs it’s difficult to put a shower in there but we have had contractors try to figure something out to add a shower. The main level has a rather large new shower and also one on bottom level. The jetted tub is for those that like to soak. There are several rows of lighting in the living room but they are high up, along with a few lamps, plus a wall of big windows for lots of natural lighting but we certainly will see if that can be improved on. This has been an extra cold year here in Tennessee and its been a challenge for everyone so we made sure we added the 3 extra heaters for comfort. Also we have 2 cozy fireplaces! We appreciate your business and your feedback. Thank you for staying with us!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This home is one of rhe best places that I have had the pleasure of staying. The cabin was so warm and welcoming. It’s in a great location and easy to find. The pictures doesn’t do this home justice. Getting on and off the parkway wasn’t a problem. I enjoyed being in a location that going to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge was easy. My family used every level of the gorgeous house. The room to spread out was very nice. Working with Mrs. Vi was so great. She is one of the best that I have dealt with. The overall experience was wonderful. Please don’t hesitate to try this rental.

Very Large and Nice

  • 4 of 5

Everything was really nice. The owner was very sweet to work with and answered my questions really fast.

The only thing you might want to bring is a few extra wash clothes. There are plenty of towels.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We appreciate you staying with us. We are sorry for that inconvenience. If we would have known, the housekeeping would have brought more for you . Never hesitate to let us know these things while you are staying with us so we can take care of any issues. I always leave a note for our guests to contact us if you need anything or have any problems. We will do our best to help. We want your stay to be a good one. We do try to leave extra wash cloths on the shelf above the washer and dryer or underneath the sink. If staying for an extended time or have a large family, we realize they can get used up fast. We have a washer and dryer for your convenience on the bottom level. Thank you , Vi
