Preparing to spend some time in the Smokies? When you book one of our Pigeon Forge cabin rentals, you know that you have somewhere warm and quiet to return to at the end of a long day.
Located in eastern Tennessee, Pigeon Forge is a mountain resort town just five miles north of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Gatlinburg, known as the entrance to the beloved park, is just eight miles to the south, easily close enough to ride the glass elevator up to the observation level of the Space Needle for an unparalleled view of the park. The county seat, Sevierville, has an interesting history to check out just seven miles north.
Tourists flock to Pigeon Forge for more than just its proximity to the Smokies. A bastion of Southern culture, people come to hear country music, take their kids to amusement parks, or attend a wide variety of dinner shows. Fun is never far away with the famous Dollywood theme park, Splash Country water park, and a handful of go-kart tracks nearby. Pay a visit to the Hollywood Wax Museum to see life-like models of celebrities or get everyone working together at The Island Ropes Course for a time no one will soon forget!
Planning to be around in late March? The annual Mountain Quiltfest has been going strong for more than two decades and offers great opportunities to take quilting lessons, see hundreds of entries in the quilt show, and enter your own prize quilt into the running for some great prizes.
Abundant rainfall and many different elevation levels make for a fascinating display of flora and fauna in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Over 10,000 species of plants and animals have been identified in the park, and geologists will love the opportunity to see old rocks including granite, sandstone, and slate, as well as gneiss and schists dating all the way to the Precambrian Era.
Take a scenic drive into the mountains and stop somewhere beautiful for a picnic. Lace up your hiking shoes and go in search of one of the many waterfalls in the area for a refreshing adventure on a hot day. You might stumble upon a hidden cave or the ghost town, Elkmont, which will fuel your scary stories around the fire when you're safe back at home.
You'll be glad that, after a long day hiking in the park, rock climbing, or following the kids onto amusement rides, you have a cozy Pigeon Forge cabin where you can relax and regain your strength for the next day of adventures!
