Head for the hills with condos in Pigeon Forge

A long-established magnet for fun-seekers, the lively mountain town of Pigeon Forge is a hotbed of activities and attractions. Your Pigeon Forge condo rental will put you at the heart of an array of possibilities for action and adventure. With condos ranging from cozy pads for romantic getaways to sprawling apartments housing a dozen or more guests, no matter what size your crew, there’s a place for you.

You will always love the Dollywood theme park

If there’s one thing that’s put Pigeon Forge on the map, it’s the Appalachian-themed Dollywood. Named in honor of a certain country music legend, your vacation rental will put you within easy reach of its classic rides, including the Lightning Rod—the world’s fastest wooden roller coaster. You’ll also find a steam engine, a log flume or two, and a varied program of live entertainment, from dance and percussion to their specialty—bluegrass.

Get yourself soaking wet at Splash Country water park

Even in the hills, those Tennessee summer days can get pretty warm. If you feel the need to cool off, Dollywood has a 35-acre sister water park—Splash Country—right next door, with an almost endless array of pools, slides, and islands in the stream. And if that still isn’t enough water for you, there’s no need to worry—plenty of Pigeon Forge condos come complete with shared pools.

Condos beside a golf course, with a mountain backdrop

Pigeon Forge is a popular destination for folks looking to escape the old 9 to 5. If you’re thinking about staying just a couple of days to check out Dollywood before heading home, you’ll be in serious danger of missing out on some splendid attractions elsewhere in the area. From golf to go-karting, not to mention adventures in the mountains, there’s so much going on within easy reach of your Pigeon Forge vacation rental.

Book a ticket on the Titanic, then go to jail

OK, maybe neither of those sound particularly appealing, but stick with us. Up in those hills there’s a half-scale replica of the famously doomed ship, done out to look just like the real thing, with real and repro relics. Next, you could head to the Alcatraz East Crime Museum, with its stark cells and gruesome tales of bad deeds through the ages. After all that time in the slammer you’ll be glad to enjoy the freedom of your nice peaceful condo, with its comfy sofa and big screen TV.

Discover the Smoky Mountains with Pigeon Forge condos

So you’ve rented a condo with an incredible view of the Smokies, and you can hear them calling to you—fortunately there are plenty of ways you can answer that call. Find some awesome vista points on any number of hiking trails in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, or, if you’re something of an adrenaline junkie you could whizz along zip lines, or dangle from high ropes. There’s even the option of a spot of whitewater rafting, or saddling up for a horseback ride.

Nightlife near your Pigeon Forge vacation home rental

Here’s a town that refuses to go to sleep when the sun goes down—if you’re a night owl you’ll be spoilt for choice. You can get your musical fix at one of Pigeon Forge’s cornucopia of live venues and dinner shows, and you’ll also find comedy and magic, along with amusement arcades and bars. The Island in Pigeon Forge is a popular entertainment complex offering restaurants and rides—including a Ferris wheel. Some evenings, though, you may prefer to stay in and cook a meal in your condo’s fully equipped kitchen. Pick a vacation home rental with a balcony, and eat al fresco in the clean mountain air.

Enjoy a Pigeon Forge condo at any time of the year

A snowy scene at the Ober Gatlinburg ski resort

At 1,000 feet above sea level, the winter nights and days get pretty chilly, but that’s no reason to stay away. Hole up in a cozy condo with a fireplace, and hit the slopes of Ober Gatlinburg, just a 20-minute drive away; from December—March you can strap yourself into a pair of skis and hurtle down the mountainside at Tennessee’s only winter sports resort. If you just can’t bring yourself to make the trip without a visit to Dollywood, you’ll find the best rates on condos in March and April, when they re-open after their winter break.
