After a fun-filled day spent in the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, you can head out to the deck, soak in the view, and unwind in the private hot tub.

This cabin was clean and so was the hot tub! Kitchen was well stocked with necessities as was the bathrooms. The view was amazing! I would not hesitate to stay in this lovely cabin again!

I’ve been to Gatlinburg/pigeon forge a lot. This is the best cabin we ever stayed in. Location is perfect. Layout fit us perfectly. Cabin was super clean. View was outstanding! Nothing bad to say.

Spacious cabin, centrally located and the most beautiful view!
Lisa N. Sep 2022
As of late August 2022...the views of the mountains and the beautiful sunset are indescribable. We sat outside for hours taking it all in. You will not be disappointed. We were in awe. The 3 levels of the house and all the amenities were just mind blowing.
Everything you need is available.
Will be back for sure!

LaRhonda S. Jun 2022
I loved the location. I loved the view. The cabin was beautiful and it did meet my expectations
Dianne D. May 2022
I loved everything about the cabin. Waking up to the view was so beautiful. Only thing I didn’t like. It didn’t have Wi-Fi. But other than that everything was beautiful
Ashley D. May 2022
Family of five. Enjoyed the pool table, foosball table, hot tub and jacuzzi! Very beautiful and cozy. Second level balcony railing was a little shaky and there was a small area of the stairs that needed railing. The only reason I gave it a 4 star! We would definitely stay again and recommend for bigger kids and adults!
Margaret d. Apr 2022
We loved this cabin from the view to the comfy beds!! It’s so beautiful, we will be back!
Kimberely B. Apr 2022
The views are amazing from this well stocked cabin. Had everything we needed. Only negative thing was the mattresses were quite worn and the light for the shower in the upstairs bath did not work. Overall a good value.
Manager response:
Hi, Kimberley! Maintenance has replaced any dead bulbs, batteries, or old filters. Thank you for your review!
daniel y. Mar 2022
Clean and comfortable rooms, beautiful window views
Lauren R. Feb 2022
We loved it so much that we booked it again in a month!
Debra S. Dec 2021
This place was absolutely beautiful and the view was to die for! 3 floors 3 bedrooms a loft pool table fuse ball table and a hot tub.. I did notice the railing on the middle floor balcony looked very unsafe and the bed on the bottom level had a huge lump in the middle of it. But we were only there one night. Perfect get away for adults! I’d be concerned about the deck railing taking my children.
Manager response:
We appreciate your visit, Debra. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time here. We have added boards to the railing to secure it until a permanent solution can be made. We will review the mattresses as well. We would love to have you visit again very soon.
Amanda B. Oct 2021
The cabin was very clean and comfortable. There was no wi-fi, which I would have realized had I read the listing more carefully. The TV's have Direct TV with limited channels, and while we didn't come to Pigeon Forge to watch TV, it would have been nice to have wi-fi and Netflix to keep the kids entertained since we had some early nights. The beds were comfortable and the appliances were in working order. The main deck railing was a bit concerning as we noted one rail right in the center that was not well secured to the bottom. Our youngest went out to check out the view and leaned on the post slightly with her tummy and jumped back when it moved. We placed a side table in front of that rail, but it really should be addressed.

Mark R. Sep 2021
The views!! By far the best I have ever seen! Clean comfortable Beds !! We will stay again
ANTHONY A. Aug 2021
4.7 RATING Scenery and overall experience was great. We found it very clean and plenty of room for a family of 8. The reason I cant give a 5.0 RATING (is in the details). Game table broke, billiard sticks without tips or chalk, drawers in chest all falling out and falling apart (cant use it), rocking chair on deck with broken leg, the cover for hot tub totally falling apart. And they claim to supply toiletries, bring your toilet paper and paper towels (not enough). Plenty of dishes but little or no room for food storage if your bringing it in to the cabin. Parking area is difficult, older people may find it hard to navigate. Would have felt better if someone had greeted us when we first arrived to go over things in the cabin. Perhaps I'm old school and I know it cost money to do that, but would have been very helpful. Overall it was a GREAT EXPERIENCE and we would go back.
Manager response:
Hi, Anthony, thank you for choosing to stay with us for your vacation. We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed yourselves! Thank you for bringing to our attention some areas in the home that require additional attention - we have followed up with the local property caretaker regarding your comments. The foosball and pool table are working, and of the four pool cues there was one to be found that was missing a tip. The chested drawers were repaired and put back on-track, and a rocking chair with a loose arm that was identified was repaired. The hot tub cover will be inspected to see about possible replacement. Please know that our guest services line is available 24/7 to assist with any questions or concerns, we want to ensure our guests have a pleasant stay. We look forward to having the opportunity in the future to better serve and impress you!

Overall the place was clean, we did find a few missed pieces of trash from the cleaning personell, nothing gross. Great place for time together, talking, relaxing and taking in the view. The best times was spent with the kids around the pool table, the hot tub and decks. The drive up is fun. Parking is very sloped, be careful. The kitchen is adequate, but small for cooking for a group.
Close enough to all of the activities in Pigeon Forge. Nice subdivision.
Manager response:
Norm, thank you for your feedback! We are glad to know you enjoyed your stay. We sincerely apologize for the oversight of items missed by our housekeeping staff. Please know that this is not commonplace, and we will pass your comments to our local staff to ensure we continue to deliver first-class service to every guest. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again!

Breathe taking views. Great cabin!!
Shelby B. Dec 2020
This was a good cabin for the three couples that went, but was missing a few things. The main floor and bottom floor didn’t have any drawers for clothes which would have been fine, but there were also zero hangers in the cabin. Everything seemed clean within eye level, but there were lots of cobwebs and dust higher up. We went to spend a relaxing week in the cabin and expected to maybe watch a few Christmas movies together, but the channels available are very limited and there isn’t any WiFi to access a streaming service. There are definitely a few things that need attention (a missing doorknob in the downstairs bathroom and the shower knob on the main floor is tricky). The views are amazing though and this cabin was centrally located to Pigeon Forge. Overall we had a good stay.
Manager response:
Hello Shelby, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager. We will be adding hangers to the home, the doorknob is being replaced, and the shower knob is working correctly. We apologize the home does only have a basic cable. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we have the chance to host you again.

My Family went to Tennessee for a Family trip after the death of my sister in April. It was a much needed break .The homes were nice,clean and cozy.It was so worth it.Lots of places to shop , eat ,and have family fun.
Wayne E. Oct 2020
My family of 8 stayed in this cabin for the weekend. We had a great time, everything was clean and very welcoming. The only thing that wasn’t great, was that a portion of the view was blocked by a large tree. Otherwise, we loved everything about it.
Tom F. Aug 2020
We loved the space in this cabin plenty of room for everyone. My only problem with it is the upstairs which is master bedroom gets very warm because it’s a loft and a/c is locked at 70 so it was sweaty at night. Also two tv’s in bedrooms were very old no hdmi for the price of newer tv’s not sure why there is no upgrade this is a couple hundred dollar fix. Other than those two issues loved the cabin. Thanks
ginger d. Aug 2020
We had a great time. The cabin was spacious and had great amenities.
Maricris v. Jul 2020
We enjoyed the indoor family activities in the game room as well as the great view of the Smokey mountain. The only recommendation would be to trim up the trees to make the view even more awesome!
Kaylee T. Jun 2020
We can a great time here and had a comfy stay. Cabin was clean and well prepared. The only complaints we had were the trees behind the balcony could use a trimming. Even on the top floor the trees were obstructing part of the view. It wasn't major but I think it would be very helpful. Also our trash bin was only dumped once during our stay, on the second day we were there. Trash stacked up very quickly with nowhere to go. Overall though have a great time and would stay again!
Ashley G. Jun 2020
This cabin and experience was truly one for the memory book! Beautiful views, bed was comfy (I like firm). Location was easy to find! Perfect getaway for a couple of nights! Super clean, quiet, and romantic! I have no complaints!!! I’m excited to book again!
Megan C. May 2020
This cabin is beautiful! It was clean and had stunning views. Everything we needed was there. There was no WiFi, which was slightly weird, but there was good cell reception so it wasn’t an issue for us.
Steve W. May 2020
This cabin suited our family nicely. It is very large and the kids loved the hot tub and pool table. The location was close to town, but felt secluded. The view was amazing! The only downside was the very squeaky beds. Simply turning over kept everyone awake. Maintenance issues like deep cleaning, dusting, and new bathroom shower heads and shower curtain liners would be great.
Maxwell L. Mar 2020
Great place! Very large home with tons of space. Amazing views on top of a valley, loved seeing the fog roll in day to day. Was glad to see hot tub was emptied and cleaned between stays (cold water initially but didn't mind since I knew it was cleaned!). Really close to some beautiful roads and the national park which we were still able to enjoy due to CV (social distancing).

Only negatives were we couldn't get basement door to lock, main floor door had large gap that cold air (and probably bugs) could come through, and I found hairs in my bed when i pulled back the comforter.
Manager response:
Maxwell, thank you for your feedback following your stay. We are glad to hear you had a great stay! We apologize for the issues you encountered and our local team will be sure to address the door lock, gap and housekeeping issues for future guests. We look forward to hosting you again!
Christy D. Mar 2020
We had a super time in Pigeon Forge! We loved being apart of this area and having breathtaking views to wake up to and enjoy. Our kiddos enjoyed counting how many bears in this cabin.
A Walk in the Clouds was a good fit for our party of 7... 2 adults 5 kids. The kids, of course, made the top floor their home. My husband and I took the main floor bedroom, which ended up not working to our favor. For one, just rolling over in the bed made the bed squeak like something else was going on! Maybe an adjustment to the bedposts? Also, the kids walking on the top floor sounded as if a herd of elephants was overhead. Not much insulation???
So, our solution, move to the bottom floor to sleep. Much quieter.
Also, better water pressure on bottom floor in shower. The main level shower nozzle needed to be replaced. Very hard to navigate and in such a narrow shower.
Overall, fabulous trip... these are just things that we observed.
Wren M. Dec 2019
The atmosphere was great with outstanding views of the mountains. This was my second trip to this particular rental. Would have thought that instructions to WiFi would have been in instructions, but all in all my family had a wonderful time.
Manager response:
Hello Wren, thank you for your review! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for the inconvenience - internet is not included with this home. We hope to host you again soon!
Mary G. Aug 2019
Great little house, well set up, pretty clean, great location. Would recommend adding wifi and cutting back one of the trees in the back to clear the view. Also, better dusting inside (plants and lamps and ledges) and the windows could be cleaner too.
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.
