Tasteful, secluded cabin w/ private hot tub, game room & picturesque views

Looking for a family-friendly getaway in Eastern Tennessee? Consider this lovely two-bedroom vacation rental, which features a private hot tub, a game room, and plenty of other home comforts.

Located on the end of a secluded street just south of Pigeon Forge, this cabin feels remote while still offering easy access to the conveniences of town. Gatlinburg, one of the gateways to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, is a short drive to the south - guests who love spending time outside will adore having the park so close to home.

Inside, the cabin's decor is rustic with a modern flair, and with no WiFi, you can completely unplug. Luxurious leather couches make it easy to unwind. After a long day exploring the area, stretch out and relax while you flip through the cable channels on the flatscreen TV and warm up by the fireplace.

Meals come together quickly in the well-appointed kitchen, which features all of the standard appliances as well as a dishwasher for easy cleanup. Enjoy your meals at the four-person table, or grab a quick snack at the two-person breakfast bar.

From the living room, step out onto the private deck and admire the views of the surrounding area. After a long day of hiking, soothe your tired muscles in the large private hot tub.

Step back inside and head downstairs to find the game room, which boasts a pool table, as well as a utility room featuring a private washer and dryer. You'll also find a second private deck, which has a picnic table for al fresco dining.

When night falls, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom cabin is ready to accommodate up to six guests. The two bedrooms are master suites featuring king-size beds, flatscreen TVs, and en suite bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs. One bedroom is located on the main floor, and the other is located on the lower level. For additional guests, the couch in the living room converts to a queen-size sofabed.

After a restful night's sleep, gather your group and plan the day's activities. Head south to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and hike, bike, or horseback ride your way through the area's stunning natural beauty. Tour the park from the comfort of your car, stopping to discover historic buildings dating to the 1800s or to enjoy a scenic overlook.

Interested in more leisurely pursuits? Visit Gatlinburg for art galleries and unusual museums, or, in the winter, head to Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area & Amusement Park for skiing, snowboarding, an alpine slide, and supervised wildlife encounters. Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge offers live entertainment, thrill rides, and specialty stores, while Pigeon Forge itself has plenty in the way of restaurants and retail shops.

Perfect for two couples or a small family, this charming cabin is an excellent home base from which to explore the Great Smoky Mountains. Don't wait - reserve your dates today!

This cabin is everyrhing we'd hoped it would be. Has an awesome view, great location with only a few minute drive to both pigeon forge and garlinburg, the cabin came with nearly everything you would need to use to cook with and the dishwasher/washing machine were really great to have as well. The cabin was really clean and nicely decorated. Everything was comfortable and we would definitely stay here again.

Paige B. May 2020
Great location and beautiful views!
Carter L. Mar 2020
We had a great stay! It had lots of space and was very nice! It is secluded and not super close to neighbors which we loved! It was a difficult drive up the mountain but was overall a great stay!
Brett C. Feb 2020
The view is to die for and the location is great!
Tina W. Feb 2020
Gorgeous cabin with a wonderful view. Even when it was cloudy and snowing the view was amazing. Definitely made better with the hot tub. Will have to come back
Kevin M. Feb 2020
Awesome view across to Ober. Well appointed everything you need to grill is there. Pricing was fair and not a lot of fees such as a damage deposit.

Very peaceful and relaxing.
David C. Sep 2019
This cabin is exactly what we needed. Close to Pigeon Forge, but felt secluded. The mountain view was fantastic! The cabin was clean and organized. Comfortable beds. All necessities were provided (toilet paper, towels, paper towels, dishes, soap, etc.)
jason c. Sep 2019
Cabin was great. Nice location. Clean and Cody. Could not use the upstairs jet tub because when we turnt the jets on it had black specks of something floating all through the water. Try to clean and rinse 4 times without suscess. Also had to buy our own pans the others were too small and burnt residue on them. Then the power went out for more than 2 hrs. No ones fault but still a huge inconvenience.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jason. The owner has scheduled a time to inspect the pots and pans and will replace what is needed. We have also scheduled a time with housekeeping to deep clean the jetted tub and apologize for the oversight. We hope to see you again!

Spectacular views and a very comfy cabin to enjoy the mountains. Perfect location. We would definitely go back.
lauri k. Aug 2019
A perfect cabin with a beautiful view. It is very secluded. We loved that it had 2 private master suites with jacuzzi tubs which is perfect for 2 couples. So many I looked at had an open loft for the second bedroom. The hot tub was nice and the cabin was very clean. We sure enjoyed our time here.

Leanna W. Apr 2019

Evelyn W. Dec 2018
It was a great cabin, pretty secluded and private enjoyed it alot
Rhonda E. Nov 2018
Cabin was clean, nice views, and well appointed. However we were not left enough towels. I spoke to the property manager the first morning and he promised more would be delivered that day. They weren’t and even with another message left no one brought us more. I had to wash towels every day of our stay. Also about 50% of the kitchen items that I used needed to be washed first.
Manager response:
We are very sorry this guest never received the towels they were promised. We do not find this acceptable and will follow-up on the situation. Thank you!
Angelia T. Nov 2018
Loved it! Good cabin for the money! Would recommend it for a cozy getaway. Loved that it was at the end of the street. Lots of trees! The neighbors didn’t seem as close as others I saw where the cabins were right on top of one another in open view. There were a few things that I wished they had in the kitchen since I love to cook but we worked around it.
Joshua S. Oct 2018
Pretty much everything... just a few little thing wrong with appliances in the cabin..
Derek B. Oct 2018
Beautiful view, quiet and private, plenty of space, wonderful location. Really glad we chose this cabin.

Jeannie S. Aug 2018
The cabin was so nice! we loved everything about it. Will definitely be coming back!!!!!
Veronica G. Jul 2018
Nice and secluded for a quick get away weekend. Scenery was excellent.
Priscilla R. Jun 2018
Had a bit of trouble finding it but once I was there I didn’t want to leave! Close enough to everything but still far enough that you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature! I think the hot tub and the deck were our favorite spots in the home!
Valerie G. Apr 2018
Loved the cabin great view had a few flaws and need a few curtains kinda dark and no blind or curtains pool table was great and so was the hot tub would definitely book again
John D. Mar 2018
We loved our stay. It’s a perfect cabin for 2 couples. One small thing that would have been nice is WiFi, it said there was WiFi when I booked, but it wasn’t available. I would recommend and would book again.
Megan E. Jan 2018
Amazing stay at BNC! Price was great! Clean and private and really enjoyed our stay!
Bryan D. Nov 2017
Loved the cabin. Great views. Good amount of room.
Kylee F. Nov 2017
Would absolutely stay again. Great location. Cozy cabin. No wifi though but makes you appreciate more of an authentic experience.
Jessica M. Oct 2017
It was the perfect adult retreat for two couples! The two master suites were exactly what we were looking for. The location can’t get any better. It’s right between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and lots of other attractions. The cabin itself was our haven each day and we loved the view from the deck. We played pool every day too. We’d definitely stay again!
Cliff A. Oct 2017
The attractions and scenery is outstanding. The home was OK but left a lot to be desired. There’s no more eerie feeling at night than being in the middle of the pitch black wilderness in a home with no blinds in the living area. When I’m staying in a remote area that’s the perfect setting for a horror film, I would like privacy. I hate the feeling of being watched. You can’t see outside at all at night and there are windows all around. Both entry doors including the one downstairs had a glass pane that could easily be broken into and unlocked from the outside. The porch light out front had the little 1 watt bulbs that put out zero light.

My only other complaint was one of the sinks doesn’t drain and the towels left for us had hair and make-up on them.

Glad there was all the amenities to make yourself at home. Just wish they put a bit more effort into making it comfortable.
Cyndi P. Sep 2017
We really enjoyed our extended weekend. Was very relaxing. View is great and hot tub on porch was just what the doctor ordered.
Sarith S. Sep 2017
It was a great and clean cabin. I would recommend this to all
WIlliam T. Aug 2017
Only negative was a few minor maintenance issues and the major issue for us of the road up to the cabin.
Marie S. Jul 2017
We had a great time just my self and my 4 girls , we drove around taking silly picture , relaxed in the hot tub while listening to the rain . woke up around 1 pm the next day visited the nearby town and sights beautiful all of it such a beautiful gift to be able to see and enjoy.
Rusty B. Jul 2017
Very clean, and we loved how it was located exactly between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge
Megan L. Jun 2017
Very lovely view! Overall nice cabin and we really enjoyed our stay.
Julie J. Apr 2017
Nice affordable in a private location but near all the attractions.
Sean W. Apr 2017
It was nice to be up in the mountain away from the tourist trap areas. It was a great middle spot for us and allowed us to get around some of the traffic.
The view is a little blocked by trees but still nice to sit out on the deck.
If the neighbors come out and are loud it takes away from the appeal. It was only a issue one of the days.
We wish they had a gas grill and more lighting in the kitchen area. Wifi wasn't very good but we didn't need it much.
We never turned on the TV's and used the pool table every night!
Kim S. Apr 2017
Enjoyed making memories with our family❤️
Brittany P. Apr 2017
I enjoyed the stay. It was very cozy and clean! The drive is a little narrow to the cabin but overall I would definitely book again
Katheryn A. Mar 2017
