Why Rod Frisby chose Sevierville

We absolutely love this area and we know you will love it too! The cabin is conveniently located very close to Everything in Pigeon Forge! You'll come out at light# 3 on the Parkway with easy access to all of the shopping, restaurants, dinner shows, go-carting, amusement rides, The Island, Dollywood, and just a short drive in to Gatlinburg.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is all log and wood inside and out. It is beautifully decorated with a very comfy king size cedar log bed in the loft, a comfy queen size log bed on the 1st floor, and all of the little extras that will make you feel comfortable and cozy. The back of the cabin has a private balcony so you can enjoy the view from the inside of the cabin or outside on the deck. You will also enjoy the mountain view from the secluded hot tub on that deck! It really doesn't get any better than this!

My husband, son and I truly enjoyed our time in your cabin. It was very well outfitted with everything that we needed during our stay. It was truly a home away from home. The views from the deck in the middle Smokey's was extraordinary. It was nice to be only 15 minutes away from all the activities, yet able to enjoy what we were there mostly for, the Smokies.

Best overall experience, hands down

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I go to the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area at least once a year, and sometimes more. We always use the Home Away app and always rent a cabin. Rod’s cabin was by far the cleanest, most well stocked, and most accurately described. As if the perfect cabin wasn’t enough, Rod and Julie were “Johnny on the spot” with answers to my questions and with any info that we would need. We will definitely be contacting them first for every trip in the future.

Beautiful cabin with gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! Spent our days shopping at the nearby outlets, sightseeing downtown gatlinburg, hiking Mt. LeConte and driving through Cades Cove. It was wonderful to come back to the cozy cabin and relax. We slept upstairs so we could wake up to the incredible view from the upper windows. Cabin is clean, cozy and well stocked and was perfect for our long weekend away. The Christmas tree and other decor were a perfect touch!! Hope we are able to make it back soon!

We were somewhat disappointed.

  • 3 of 5

The property was clean except fan blades in bedrooms, and well stocked, however the beds were oversized for the limited space. No accommodations for hangups in the loft. Appearance could be improved by painting the entrance and French doors inside and outside, as well as cleaning window above French doors.

Owner's Response: Barbara we will certainly look in to your concerns, but we do prefer the large beds as the other guests seem to like them. As far as the second story windows, they are cleaned twice a year. We did try to reach you during your stay, but the phone number you provided must have been your home number. Thank you, Rod

Very friendly, clean and close but not too close

  • 4 of 5

My two sisters and I stayed at "What a Blessing" for the first time. I can't say enough about how friendly and accommodating Rod was. The cabin had everything we needed and was very clean. It was far enough from other cabins so we had privacy but it was easy to get into town also. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
