Wife and I were planning a trip to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge for our anniversary and I surprised her with a stay at a cabin. Upon stepping in, it was automatically a perfect experience. A nice two story cabin, functional kitchen, comfortable beds, a gas fireplace. A while after we checked in, the owners stopped by and showed us around the resort and ensured we had a great stay. Not being familiar with the area, it looked like the cabins where a little bit away from things on a map. That could not be further from the truth. The cabin is only about 10 minutes away from Gatlinburg and just around the corner from the Christmas Place area on the Parkway. A very nice bonus was a gas grill outside which we used on our last night (there is a Kroger supermarket less then 5 minutes away) to cook a great steak dinner.
With its' very affordable rates, I certainly look forward to booking more stays with my family.
