Spacious cabin w/private hot tub, game room, shared seasonal pool

Looking for an exciting getaway with your whole extended family or a large group of friends? Look no further than Brief Escape, a seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom rental with top-notch amenities, including a game room, a private hot tub, a shared seasonal pool (open May through September), multiple indoor Jacuzzi tubs, and plenty of space for all guests!

Whether you're coming for a weekend or staying for the week, you'll find tons of fun-filled activities nearby! This cabin is less than a mile from Pigeon Forge's unique downtown area, where you can find lots of family-friendly entertainment, one-of-a-kind shops, and eclectic restaurants. For the nature lover, plentiful hikes begin in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, just a short drive to the south.

Step into the cabin's inviting, multi-level interior, which resembles a cabin-in-the-woods with its wood panel walls, floor, and ceiling. Kick off your shoes and settle in for some cable television or DVD movie entertainment in the living room, and flip on the fireplace to take the chill out of the air. Downstairs is a game room for additional fun! There's also another TV so that don't have to take a break from your favorite cable series.

If you're needing some fresh air, head outside onto either of the front or back decks where you can rock on rocking chairs to the sounds of nature or simply take in sweeping views of the Smoky Mountain foothills.

Fixin' to make a homemade meal? Walk back inside and into the open concept kitchen where modern appliances greet the chef in your group and spacious countertops make it easy to lay out ingredients. There's even a dishwasher for easy cleanup afterward. Enjoy all your meals in the company of your group at the six-seat table near the kitchen or take breakfast, lunch, or dinner onto the deck for an al fresco dining experience framed by stunning sunsets and sunrises over the mountains. Feel like having a cookout? Just fire up the grill and get cooking!

Afterward, head out to explore the community, and be sure to bring along a towel and swimsuit for a dip in the community pool. You could also use the time to do a load of laundry in the cabin's washer/dryer, connect to the WiFi to make further adventure plans, or wind down with a luxurious soak in the private hot tub sitting on the deck.

When your eventful day comes to an end, retreat to any of seven bedrooms to get the restful sleep you'll need for another day of adventures. With space for up to 22 guests total, the sleeping options include an upstairs level accommodating up to 8 guests with two king bedrooms and a large loft area with two more king beds. Bedrooms on this level even have in-room fireplaces and private Jacuzzi tub bathrooms. The main floor has two more bedrooms with king beds. On the lower level, a total of 10 guests are accommodated with queen bunk sets in two bedrooms and another bedroom with a king bed.

Ready for some exciting day trips? Zip around on high-speed rollercoasters at Dollywood amusement park, plan a day of sightseeing and family-friendly fun in Gatlinburg, or head into Great Smoky Mountains National Park to explore on over 500,000 acres of federally protected wildlands with incredible hiking trails, pristine rivers, and jaw-dropping viewpoints.

While the house was big enough for all of our family, there were a few things that were not up to par. The TV's were very complicated and we could only get the living room one to work, the stove had several eyes that were not working properly and the hot water was only warm in several of the bathrooms.
Manager response:
We appreciate you staying with us and sharing your experience. Maintenance is scheduled to look at the TV, stove, and hot water so they can be addressed as needed. Thank you!
Angie C. Feb 2021
I loved the cabin overall. The view and location. The rooms were very nice and spacious. It accommodated all 15 of us. I would like to book this cabin again!
Katy B. Dec 2020
This was a clean spacious spot for our family to spend time together for Christmas!!
Natasha M. Dec 2020
The cabin was very spacious and had plenty of room for everyone in our group! Bedding was clean and everything was as described! A few minor improvements would make it perfect! A few of the fireplaces are broken, and a couple of the tv’s do not work. A couple of the jacuzzi tubs had mold in the jets but we were able to clean them and use them. We were unable to use the pool table due to no chalk, but those are the only minor things that kept this from being a 5 star review! Very enjoyable experience!
Manager response:
Hi, Natasha! We appreciate your feedback and will be scheduling a vendor for the fireplaces. All of the TVs are working, and the jets have been cleaned. Thank you!

Location was great! Easy to get around town from there. And the space was perfect, but we only had 11 people, so we were able to spread out. We loved that most of the bedrooms had it's own bathroom. The kitchen was a little small (not a lot of counter/prep space). We were cooking Thanksgiving dinner and had to juggle the space to get everything done. Also, it was very warm this year in Nov, and it was hard to get the AC to cool the rooms upstairs, which could be a bigger problem in the summer months. We enjoyed to game room, playing pool and ping pong! Our group had a great time.
Brainerd P. Nov 2020
We had a great weekend at this cabin. It was cozy and comfortable and worked great for the smaller numbers we had in attendance at our annual women's retreat.
Bryan F. Sep 2020
Very nice cabin.
Shawn P. Sep 2020
Nice chalet, a little dated.
Shower head needs replacing in one of the rooms.
Also there was leakage from first floor to basement floor on top of the bunk bed.
Close to all the amenities including grocer store and the main strip in pigeon forge.
Manager response:
Hi, Shawn! The shower and leak have been addressed, and we appreciate you bringing them to our attention. Thank you for staying with us!
Jaydeep M. Sep 2020
Location was vary convenient, Cabin has enough room for 22 people. It was good experience but some flows with Wifi which was vary slow and unstable. Not enough Hot water for all, water pressure was vary low in bathrooms. Overall is was good.
Charlene M. Aug 2020
Many bedrooms and bathrooms for a large group
Barry L. Jul 2020
This place needs help and is way to over price for what it is. The carpets were so dirty that they would leave your socks and feet black. Half of the stuff did not work on the Property, Including showers. Nails were sticking out all over the deck cutting two of our little kids feet. I would not recommend this house for anybody. I wish I would’ve spent my money elsewhere.
Manager response:

The layout of the cabin was great. Loved the location. Plenty of room for our big family. Would definitely stay there again.
Terry H. Jul 2020
We had a gang of 18 for a week of baseball at the Cal Ripken Experience. Our cabin provided lots of room to move around, an awesome game room, a Comfy hot tub & so conveniently close to the baseball facility. It was perfect & accommodated all our needs!
Richard M. Jun 2020
Close to center of the town
Wayne H. Nov 2019
We make a large family trip to the Smokies every Fall and it's hard to find a place that will accommodate 14 with bathrooms for each bedroom. We were very pleased with Brief Escape and hope to come back again.
Jena M. Nov 2019
The cabin is in a great location and is well laid out. Enjoyed the cabin
MILAGROS P. Aug 2019
Large beautiful cabin in the mountains with great balconies.
Kim M. Jul 2019
Loved it
Jay S. Jun 2019
Loved the location and overall Cabin. The only reason i gave 4 and not 5 stars is because we felt that kitchen and main living area is a bit small for the big group. Except that, loved everything.
Taylor S. May 2019
The bed rooms were extremely spacious, the downstairs was great for the kids, the temperature was adjustable in all rooms and we were glad there were two dinning tables! It was clean with plenty of bathroom linens. (may want to bring more for kitchen)
Beth G. May 2019
We had a wonderful time. Great location and great layout.

Wendy G. Oct 2018
Our group had a wonderful time staying at the Brief Escape Cabin. Our group of 13 had lots of room in this very spacious and very clean lodge. Beds were most comfortable. It is located in a wonderful place just off the Pigeon Forge strip that was easy access to many attractions and shopping. We do want to bring to the owner's attention some of the things we noticed during our week's stay. The frying pans need to be replaced. There were only 8-9 coffee cups and not enough silverware for a large group. There were 2 broken vegetable bins in the refrigerator. The TV's and remotes need to be updated. The 3 decks of outdoor furniture need to be restained or replaced, and one rockers was broken. There was a broken pool cue in the rack. One of the tub jets did not work. The bedrooms need a chair for older folks to be able to sit and put on their shoes. (Hard to sit on the side of a log bed.) We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for sharing your home!
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. The owners will be living at this property in the month of October and will be doing some major updates to the home. The Local Manager will pass along this guests review to the owners to address the concerns and hopefully fix them all by their next visit.
Thomas S. Aug 2018
This home was very spacious for our family of 17. Enjoyed our stay very much.
L LYNN W. Jun 2018
Very convenient to Pigeon Forge and very accommodating for our family. Please consider upgrading your TVs thanks. I would definitely stay again!
Jawonna O. May 2018
I found this cabin to be cozy but spacious! It was perfect for ouryear-end Girl Scout retreat. With 10 Junior girls to enjoy the comforts of an entire floor dedicated for games and recreational fun! The Queen Bunks created an environment for an all out PJ party. Kitchen was supplied with all the basics needs. My only recommendation, get new knives. All of the chef knives were dull, making it difficult to cook with. Also electric can opener was broken. These are essential for cooking in large quantities.

Beth G. Apr 2018
This is a beautiful cabin and we loved the 5 master bedrooms. We were told that there would be a futon but apparently it had been broken and not replaced. I called and they sent over a very good air mattress in plenty of time for bed. One more bathroom downstairs and it would be perfect. We will be staying again. Great location.
Barbara K. Mar 2018
The cabin itself was extremely nice. The only problem was the water would not stay hot in some of the bathroom showers but overall it is the place to be.....
Manager response:
Maintenance inspected the hot water heater and were unable to find any problems; we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you!
Patrick & Patty K. Feb 2018
Great Stay

Each year, our Family picks a spot to have family time. We have stayed at lots and cabins! This one will go down in the books as one of the best! We loved the coziness of the cabin and was impressed with the cleanliness. We will return soon!
Stefanie B. Nov 2017
Thanks to the amenities and spacious cabin I was able to enjoy all of my family under one roof for an early Thanksgiving celebration. 5 families slept comfortably and we all had room to move around and enjoy our time together. The decks and balconies were amazing and so relaxing with the swings and rocking chairs. We are so thankful for this cabin and the memories we made!!
Katie W. Nov 2017
This is the perfect place to host a weekend getaway. The cabin is beautiful. It was remarkably clean. I am a bit of a germaphobe, so I notice cleaning oversights, and there were none. Huge pros: Most rooms have a jacuzzi and a fireplace, and there is plenty of space for guests to spread out. The game room in the basement is really cool. The cabin is centrally located and close to restaurants, groceries, activities, hiking, lots of stuff. The property is well kept and in a safe area. The view is decent. We had trouble logging onto the WiFi at first, but the property manager was very responsive and helped us quickly. Only one con: This cabin is surrounded by other cabins. That being said, we didn’t notice the neighbors once we were in the cabin. I would definitely recommend this property for a stay in Pigeon Forge!
Carolyn H. Oct 2017
