Updated Mountain View Cabin with Furnished Decks & Game Room
Enjoy a fun-filled family vacation in the Smokies at this spacious and fully updated mountain cabin with furnished decks, enviable views, and a small game room.
This two-bedroom home with a loft is hidden away among the trees, but close to downtown Pigeon Forge, the home of Dollywood, and the heart of Gatlinburg, where you'll find a number of unique shops, superb restaurants, and plenty of all-ages amusements.
Aglow with rich, knotty pine walls, high ceilings, and hardwood floors, this mountain cabin tastefully combines warm, rustic elements with all the modern conveniences of home.
Relax in the wide open living space with cozy leather furniture, a floor-to-ceiling electric stone fireplace, spectacular views, and easy access out to the lower-level, wrap-around deck.
This great room continues with a dining area and table with seating for six and a breakfast bar/island with four counter stools attached to the kitchen. The open-concept kitchen is a chef's dream offering plenty of prep space, a wide assortment of essential accessories, cookware, and dinnerware, as well as a full array of top-of-the-line appliances and countertop gadgets, including the all-important dishwasher to help keep things tidy during your stay.
There are two bedrooms located on the main floor: one bedroom has a plush, king-size bed while the other has a queen. Upstairs, the fully-furnished loft contains a king master suite with a fantastic, full bath that includes a Jacuzzi tub and a separate, step-in shower. This home sleeps up to six guests quite comfortably and is ideal for a family or a few couples traveling together.
This cabin is a peaceful retreat, so internet access is not currently offered, however, you should have no trouble at all getting online in Pigeon Forge where there are numerous coffee shops and other WiFi-friendly businesses.
Head up to the loft and challenge one another to games of air hockey. The living room is equipped with an Xfinity Flexbox and Blu-ray player. The lofted space and bedroom are equipped with Roku streaming devices and the loft includes a Blu-ray player as well. Pull up a rocking chair on the lower-level deck and take in the amazing view. And to ensure you start each and every day with a fresh, clean change of clothes, a private washer/dryer is included.
Hiking and biking trails crisscross the Great Smoky Mountains with easy-to-find trailheads all over the area. Visit Douglas Lake for boating, swimming, picnicking, and, of course, fishing! And when the snow is falling, grab your skis and head south to the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area and Amusement Park, or take a day trip across the North Carolina border to hit the slopes of the Cataloochee Ski Area.

We loved the cabin, great views, great distance from attractions, felt secluded. Everything was great, had enough supplies for our stay.
Tonya C.Aug 2022
Location was nice just the right distance from Pigeon Forge. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked. Views were wonderful. Would definitely book this cabin again.
Michelene M.Aug 2022
The cabin was clean and comfortable very nice . This is the second time we have stayed and we love it
Jane W.Aug 2022
The cabin was beautiful, very clean and supplied. We loved all the balconies, which we used often. The views of the mountains were amazing! We would definitely stay again.
BRIAN G.Jun 2022
Beautiful views with lots of decks to relax on. Spotlessly clean and inviting. Well appointed kitchen. The master bath in the loft is wonderful with a huge soaking tub. Our only complaint was that the balconies really do need more frequent cleaning due to the bugs and wildlife.
Amin P.Apr 2022
Our cabin was extremely clean, great location. The most relaxing place ever!
Sarah M.Apr 2022
We loved the balconies! The entire cabin was amazing!
Chelsea T.Dec 2021
We loved it!!! The view was wonderful and having four balconies was amazing!! We also loved the hammock! We wish that the beds were a little bit more comfortable but overall we loved it. We would be back!
Jamie G.Nov 2021
The cabin was beautiful inside and out. Tons of space for our three families. Great bedroom layout and very comfortable accommodations! Loved the options of having four different porch/deck views. The hammock was a bonus! We will be back!
Kevin M.Oct 2021
Loved the location and the cabin!!! SIX Stars!!
Guillermo R.Oct 2021
My wife and I enjoyed immensely our stay in this gorgeous home surrounded by lovely trees and the view to the Smokey mountains . We couldn’t find a better place and look forward to coming back in the near future .
Rachel B.Oct 2021
The views are incredible!! Beds were super comfortable, the cabin was stocked with everything we needed, and the location was perfect. We came for our honeymoon and we will definitely be returning to celebrate anniversaries!
Alice F.Jun 2021
Jane B.Jun 2021
The cabin was wonderful! Clean and beautiful views!
Mayuri T.Jun 2021
Cabin was not good. Location and view was good. Beds were not good in any room. Bathroom door was hard to locked. Sofa in sitting area was not comfortable. Clock in the kitchen was dead. We liked the view but not the cabin
Thank you for your review,Mayuri. We sincerely apologize for the disappointment. We would have been happy to assist with any questions or concerns if we had been notified during your time with us. Our local team strives to provide every one of our guests with the best vacation possible. We are so sorry if our standards were not met during your time with us!
Marie T.May 2021
For us it was amazing, except the bed upstairs that is in the loft is broken. Which sucked. But we dealt with it. Everything else, we absolutely loved.
Douglas A.May 2021
Wonderful cabin with amazing views
Theresa K G.Apr 2021
We stayed here for Spring break and found the location close to many stores, sights and scenic roadways. The cabin was beautiful and clean.
Landon M.Mar 2021
This cabin is beautiful with breathtaking views!! It was clean and we had everything we needed!! We also loved the location! We will be recommending this cabin to everyone we know!!
LISA W.Feb 2021
Loved this cabin. It was everything we expected it to be. Very neat, clean and well kelp. We would definitely chose this cabin again. Vacasa was very easy to communicate with and always got back to me timely.
Matt L.Jan 2021
We were hesitant over the bad reviews, but decided to take a chance on renting this cabin anyways. I’m so glad we did. The cabin was absolutely amazing. It was exactly as described. It was very clean, had enough bath towels, no issues with hot water for the four of us, great quality kitchen and master bathroom, and wonderful mountains views. We didn’t realize that in addition to the two front balconies, there were also two side balconies as well (connected to bedrooms). We did read in the description there wasn’t WiFi, but our cell phone service was good enough so it wasn’t an issue. The tv channels are a bit confusing - many listed but most didn’t work. It wasn’t a problem for us, but just an FYI for others. The drive up to the cabin is steep - if traveling during winter/snow be prepared. Overall we loved our experience at the Laughing Salamander and can’t wait to go back!
Cecie G.Jan 2021
My family and I just stayed at laughing Salamander. Home was beautiful!! Clean, incredible views and great location- close to local attractions but away from the noise. We will definitely be back!
Carmen R.Dec 2020
This was such a nice little get away cabin! The cabin was clean and has a beautiful view! The customer service with Vacasa was amazing! The drive to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg isn’t bad at all. If we ever need another quick get away...we will be staying at this cabin again!
Terri R.Nov 2020
Beautiful view. Beautiful cabin. But, could have been cleaned alittle better. Trash still under staircase. Tv were messed up. Came and took box out of another room. Which left them with no tv if they wanted to watch it. Light bulbs kept going out. The air hockey table had a messed up plug so couldn't use it. Smoke alarm started beeping, they told us to just unplug it and would put a new battery in later. Spider webs hanging on the living room fan. It's a beautiful cabin though.
Terri, thank you for staying with us in our home and taking the time to give us your feedback. We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced while staying with us. We would have loved a chance to fix them during your stay. We are available 24/7 to help our guests. I have let the local team know of these details and they will be addressed. We are glad you enjoyed the cabin and hope to get another chance to impress you in the future!
Shuford J.Oct 2020
Waking up and seeing the gorgeous mountains from the Laughing Salamander Cabin was so incredible! The Fall foliage was amazing and having four different porches to retreat to and take in the views was so nice. It was the perfect size for a birthday getaway with friends. The mattresses could really use some updates though as they seem to be very dated and squeak with every little move. Despite some less than ideal beds, the cabin is rather stunning and a place I'd book again if I'm ever back in the area.
Wallace C.Oct 2020
They have removed the hot tub without telling us after paying for the cabin! Wasp nest on the second floor balcony. And the bed in the loft was broken! Was definitely not worth the price we paid!
Hi Wallace. Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that the hot tub wasn't available during your stay. The home no longer offers this as an amentiy. We apologize for the confusion that it caused. We have also had the home treated for wasps so that it won't be a problem in the future. We do hope that we have another chance in the future to impress you.
Luis F.Aug 2020
Great place to stay! Peaceful and relaxing plenty of amenities
Wayne D.Jul 2020
the second time staying here, great views form the porch. We were just a bit disappointed that the hot tub was removed, one draw back is the T-stats are locked and do not go below 72 the upper loft area gets hot during the day and takes time to cool off in the late afternoon/night. Not saying we will not return but we are looking for different places to stay in the area when we return in October. We also wish there was WIFI with the cable package some of the phones were very slow due to the cell reception.
Be sure if you are cooking bring something to store leftovers in, if you are or have coffee drinkers the pot is a tad slow you may want to bring an additional coffee pot.
With that we did have a great time on our trip and the cabin is far enough away but close enough to the towns and places to visit.
Richard R.Jul 2020
Very large cabin with nice decor. It was very clean and a beautiful view of the mountains! Lots of porch space for just sitting outside enjoying the view.
Great to get away, just know that there is no provided internet access, but that may actually make it better!
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at this beautiful home. We apologize for any confusion: we note in the listing that internet isn't provided but does have many other fun amenities! We hope to host you again, soon!
Siedah M.May 2020
Great locations and an amazing view. I would recommend renting this property.
Nicole A.May 2020
Clean, Amazing views. I will from now on book through Vacasa.
Donathan W.Feb 2020
Everything was as advertised. It snowed while we were visiting which made the trip even better.
Leroy G.Feb 2020
The cabin was in a great location and wasn’t too bad to get to. The parking was great as well with parking for up to three vehicles. I’ve stayed at a cabin before that had parking barely for one vehicle so I was very pleased with that.
The cabin had everything needed to survive for the week we were there. However, there were a few things we found to be aggravating that we must note.
1) Bring your own coffee pot if you are a coffee drinker as the off brand coffee pot they had was not very good. As coffee drinkers it was upsetting.
2) This one is pure speculation as you can’t please everyone. We all found the beds to be uncomfortable. They were firm and we all preferred plush.
3) The hot water heater wasn’t able to keep up for two couples with kids. We ended up having to do one couple bathe at a time which made for a lot of downtime and late nights.
4) Probably the most annoying thing that should be fixed ASAP. There were only 6 towels in the entire cabin. Simply not enough towels but there was a washing machine/dryer.
But all that did not keep us from having a great time and having a blast with family. Overall I would stay at the cabin again.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay, Leroy! We have purchased a new coffee maker and found the hot water heater working as designed. Thank you for staying with us!
Aleksandra F.Jan 2020
This is a great cabin with an awesome view and close to the many attractions. We will be back.
Yader A.Jan 2020
Absolutely love it!
Justin K.Dec 2019
Very clean and welcoming cabin. The directions led us straight there on GPS. The bedrooms were a great size and comfortable beds. I would maybe add some more cooking utensils and baking sheets to the kitchen supply. Hot tub was wonderful and awesome temperature. Overall a great space for a few days away.
Shawn G.Dec 2019
We loved it! Would only get a more comfortable couch and maybe a gift basket of snacks/local information. We got in pretty late and had a hard time finding anywhere to eat the fist night, after that we were fine. ;-) Beautiful home, very clean, awesome views, we didn't want to come home to Florida!!
Mark C.Nov 2019
large cabin, really nice beds, one of the most beautiful cabins you will find
Sheau L.Nov 2019
Stayed here in Nov '19, group of 5 including two small children. We really loved the cabin. It was super clean, had great views, and was well stocked with everything we needed. Paved access was a huge plus also and we loved the close access to the Pigeon Forge attractions. Highly recommend this unit.
Phillip S.Nov 2019
Lovely home. Very comfortable.
Wade J.Oct 2019
This is our third time staying at this cabin. We love it!
Leslie L.Oct 2019
We had a great time and will be back to this cabin!
Wayne D.Aug 2019
Good location, the views are great. The cabin was very clean and welcoming. We did find the hot tub was not hot enough for our liking. Over all we will return for another stay.
Lexy S.Aug 2019
The house is simply beautiful in pictures but even better in person. The master bathroom is it’s own little spa. The beds were noisy but extremely comfortable, everyone slept great so it didn’t bother us at all. There was nothing better then waking up to the Mountain View’s, it was stunning. Later at night sitting in the jacuzzi or sitting by the fire surrounded by nature was beyond peaceful! Would absolutely return back.
Robert M.Aug 2019
We loved that you could see the mountain view from the bed in the master suite. The master bath is amazing.
Debra P.Jul 2019
A beautiful home to enjoy a beautiful view every night.
Bonnie L.Jul 2019
The Laughing Salamander Cabin is in a lovely location with many amenities and fabulous views. A great place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It is close enough to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg to take in all those towns have to offer.
Nasser A.Jul 2019
every thing seemed to be excellent and that why I gave 4 stars, but when we checked in the afternoon we found out that the downstair AC control was locked with a password, at first we thought that how the owner runs their business and do not want anyone to lower the temperature less than 72F, however, that night we couldn't sleep well downstair while the temperature reached 82F and the thermostat set to the HEAT MODE. In the morning we got busy having some activities, but when we got back we tried to reach out the local staff or the owner to fix this annoying issue, unfortunately we spent a few more hours in the heat and the owner did not answer the local staff. A nice local staff or from vacasa called Craig cooperated so much with us and finely found out how to come up with the AC control code, it was almost the second night around 10 p.m. I always have a good-will towards other and I expect others to have it, and believe this happened unintentionally.
Nersa M.Jul 2019
House was beautiful, clean and gorgeous views. Kids disappointed that the pool table was missing a ball and hockey table the paddles were missing. Overall excellent stay, kitchen was full equipped, toiletries and plenty of towels. Would definitely recommend. Close to The island. Drive up to the cabin was somewhat steep, we tried to avoid staying out to late at night.
Nersa, we are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful cabin. We are sorry about the missing pool ball and paddles. We encourage guests to call our 24/7 Guest Services line with any questions or concerns so we may address them right away. We will pass your comments along to our local manager so he may ensure those items are replaced or more readily available to guests. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
John C.Jun 2019
Great place to stay. Great views of the mountains. Quiet area. Awesome trip!
Charlene M.May 2019
This cabin is perfect! The house is beautiful with a beautiful view! Situated close to pigeon forge and the attractions but far enough away to be quite and peaceful, I would definitely stay here again!
Sade H.May 2019
Overall me and boyfriend enjoyed this house. The house had spectacular view of the mountains. It was very clean and looked exactly liked the pictures.
Kevin R.Apr 2019
The cabin was spotlessly clean and absolutely beautiful. The master suite occupies the entire 2nd floor with incredible views of the mountains and a private deck complete with outdoor hot tub. The cabin is in a great neighborhood with other nice cabins around it. We enjoyed being close to Pigeon Forge for dining, but also far enough away to enjoy the quiet, beautiful mountains. We’d definitely rent again.
Susan W.Mar 2019
Spacious beautiful cabin, large enough for our 5. Hot tub and pool table with flip side hockey table was a big hit. Master bath soaking tub was so very relaxing. Kitchen was stocked with the basics, a platter would of come in handy for some meals but definitely not a deal breaker. Roads are straight up, so it may be a challenge for some in bad weather. This is a well decorated, fun cabin. Would love to return in the future!
Mia T.Sep 2018
This is our second time staying at The Laughing Salamander. Its very clean. The air hockey table was missing pieces and the dryer is not working well you have to dry a load of clothes 3 or 4 times before they dry. Other than that I was satisfied. Good location and beautiful view. How ever the grass was not cut when we got there. If my children wanted to play outside they couldn't. When we got there they lights were already on and they provide extra trash bags and toiletries that came in handy!
We are sorry for the slight issues this guest encountered. We have scheduled the dryer for inspection, replaced the air hockey pieces, and are doing our best to stay on top of lawncare with all the rainfall. Thank you!
Christopher O.Aug 2018
Very clean, spacious, and the view is phenomenal. My wife and I stayed for 5 nights and we enjoyed every minute. Do yourself a favor and check-in during the day though, as navagating the neighborhood at night is very difficult due to no lighting and steep roads.
Misty S.Jun 2018
Definitely lived up to the pictures online. Beautiful place! It has good bones...slept like a baby!
Jerff Y.May 2018
This was my first experience of staying in a cabin. The interior of the cabin was really nice and pretty, and the view from the balcony was great. There were plenty of kitchen appliances so it was easy to cook and have a barbecue outside. The only thing about the house was that we couldn't find the air hockey puck so we only used the pool table. Overall, my friends and I had a great time!
Carrie R.Apr 2018
Unbelievable cabin! Our welcome bag was unexpected and welcomed. The cleanliness was superior and the cabin itself with the views just amazing!
Colm G.Apr 2018
The pictures do not do the view justice. Very nice place.
Traci M.Apr 2018
This was our first trip to the Smoky Mountain area and the location of this cabin was perfect! It provided a peaceful respite with amazing views but was only a short drive to the National Park and all the attractions in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. It was beautifully decorated, spotless and provided everything we needed. We loved relaxing at our comfortable and cozy cabin throughout the week and would definitely stay there again!
Rodney & Jackie S.Mar 2018
The view was spectacular!! The location was great and the cabin was very comfortable, nice and clean...The only draw back was (which we should have paid closer attention to before we booked it) there is no wifi...If you don't mind that then you would be very happy with this beautiful cabin...
Alecia R.Mar 2018
it was a beautiful and amazing view ((:
Darlene H.Dec 2017
have stayed there a few times overall good just missing a few things
Jason W.Dec 2017
The cabin was beautiful. The loft master bedroom lacks a little privacy but the view from the bed cannot be beat. The inclined roads to get to the cabin in snow or icy weather could be difficult so be prepared in the winter time. We would definitely stay again and would recommend The Laughing Salamander for a couple or small family.
Tracy B.Dec 2017
The Cabin and views are absolutely gorgeous!! The pictures do not do it justice I would stay again but would bring my own pillows.
Glen C.Nov 2017
Love this house!
Darrin A.Oct 2017
The cabin design was great. The view was awesome. Good location to Pigeon Forge but far away from traffic. Quality of the cabin was fair. The craftsmanship was subpar. Home was sparsely decorated, furniture second hand and beds are uncomfortable at best. Kitchen has most dinnerware, silverware, cooking utensils and pots and pans. Bring your own cutlery if you plan to cook.
We are disappointed to see this guest did not enjoy the cabin. It is decorated very simply per the owner's preference. We have purchased knives for the kitchen, and we are seeking owner approval for mattress toppers. Thank you!
Joe F.Oct 2017
Great views and beautiful cabin.
Georgia R.Sep 2017
We have stayed in many of your cabins in the past, but this was by far the best one.
The cabin was immaculate and very comfortable. I was proud to bring family members here.
Shannon S.Jul 2017
Beautiful Views, Comfortable beds, well-equipped kitchen and close to all main attractions. Enjoyed our visit very much and we plan to go back.
Cris A. W.Jul 2017
Over all this cabin is very nice with a wonderful view of the mountains. I would definitely stay here again. The cabin was very clean and well taken care of.
James A. E.Jul 2017
We had a really nice time while staying at the Laughing Salamander. I like a good view and I was not disappointed. We also enjoyed the fire pit under the full moon. Have alot of good memories of this cabin.
Yuan F.Jul 2017
It's a lovely cabin
Shameeka W.Jul 2017
My family and I stayed here for two days as just a quick getaway from home. It was beautiful- the house and the view. It was very spacious and had everything you would need to enjoy your stay. We used the kitchen daily and it provided everything we needed and was in great condition. Definitely a great place to stay!!!
Randa S.Jun 2017
The cabin was clean and the view was so beautiful,my family enjoyed staying there and they love to go back again there.
Beth H.Jun 2017
This cabin is in an excellent location, near attractions but still private. It was exactly as the pictures showed. There was plenty of space and it was a quality cabin. My family has stayed in several luxury cabins in Pigeon Forge. This cabin was one of our favorites and was priced right. I would return to this cabin right now if I could.
Tai L.Jun 2017
This is our 4th trip to the Smoky Mts. We always try to get a different cabin each time, however this cabin is one I would stay in again. It's an easy drive to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Cade's Cove, etc. We loved sitting in the rocking chairs on the deck just looking out over the mountains! Bring water shoes and take time to wade in the refreshing rivers and streams! You can't beat the views!
Taylora S.May 2017
There were a few things that could have been fixed but overall it was wonderful. The location is absolutely beautiful and convenient and the cabin was gorgeous as well.
Sierra M.Apr 2017
My first experience in a cabin and I loved it.
Derek T.Apr 2017
We really enjoyed our stay. The views are beautiful. It's only a short drive to town to enjoy a lot of family fun. Lots of things for kids and adults. Our kids enjoyed the cabin, they furnish a pool table and our cabin had air hockey as well.
Sharon W.Mar 2017
The Laughing Salamander is a gorgeous cabin. The bedroom's down stairs are very spacious. As well as the dining and living areas. The upstairs however, is the best part of this home. The bathroom is beautifully done and the catwalk leading to the balcony added that special touch. The bed's in this home were all very comfortable. The fireplace wasn't really functional but overall this is a lovely cabin.
