Pigeon Forge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

VIEWS / WOODED 1 ACRE PRIVACY / IPOD FM STEREO / WIFI HIGH SPEED INTERNET / COMCAST 36' LCD TO 54' PLASMA HD TV'S / DVD PLAYERS / JACUZZI / HOT TUB / XBOX / XBOX 360 / POOL TABLE / DARTS / FULL KITCHEN / KING BEDS / LEATHER AND MICRO FIBER SEATING / HUGE DECK / SLEEPS 8

Location: Next to Dollywood, 3 mile Pigeon Forge, 10 Miles from Gatlinburg Area, Tennessee, USA

The cabin sits on 1 FULL acre atop of Parrot Mountain above Dollywood and Splash Country. Parrot Mountain Park is at the bottom of our hill! While here, you can listen to the Dollywood Steam Train whistling around the next mountain off in the distance while watching the steam roll out from the tree tops. The cabin setting is quiet with the only noise being the local wildlife going about their day. Also during certain times of the day you can faintly hear the tropical birds singing from the Parrot Mountain Park below. You can literally drive to the bottom of the mountain (1/4 mile) and there is the entrance to Dollywood and Splash Country. We also have easy access to all the bypasses into the Pigeon Forge Strip and Gatlinburg without the headache if getting trapped in the slow traffic jam on the main strip. Instead, pick where you want to go and inject yourself into that spot from the simple back routes in no time.

The cabin is surrounded by woodlands on all sides, except of course for the clearing of the view, have seclusion while still being in the middle of it all at the same time! We took a long time to find this perfect location. We did not want a cabin built on a shear cliff (if you have kids or a long night with friends, no need to worry about going skydiving unintentially), we also did not want a cabin built right on top of other cabins with the feel of having a cabin in a condo development (the whole point of getting a cabin is to be in the woods not another neighborhood). For us, we needed privacy and did not want to look at 4 other decks while relaxing on ours. This cabin fit that main criteria! We are sure you will also appreciate it yourself!

A campfire pit in the front so you can roast marshmallows while checking out the daytime view of the mountains or night time lights of the Pigeon Forge Strip, and Gatlinburg Ski Slope, while still having the feeling of camping in the woods high up on the mountain ALL at the same time!

**FAQ'S**

Question:

We are bringing small children, where are the sleeper sofas located in the cabin?

Answer:

The cabin has 3 levels.

First Floor Media Room, 50' Sony, Xbox, DVD (play the childrens movies, Xbox, childrens shows, board games :) ) This room has 2 red micro fiber queen size sleeper sofas. The children usually sleep here if we have friends staying in the attached King Size bedroom. If it's just us, our kids sleep in this 1st floor master bedroom with the 36' TV and watch their kid shows/sleep over thing and then they are out. This floor is seperated from the top 2 floors by an enclosed stairway (keeping out the top two levels noise).

The 2nd level is the living room/dining/kitchen/master w/jacuzzi tub/fireplace/main deck/hot tub on the deck. This floor's leather couch, folds out into a queen sleeper as well. (if you want your children on the same floor with you). The second floor is open (aside from the bedroom) to the game loft on the 3rd floor.

On the 3rd floor is the pool table, tv, darts, and sitting table. We positioned it this way because we could then stay up later, while kids were in bed, and enjoy the rest of the cabin/gameroom/hot tub/deck, while the kids where asleep downstairs undesturbed due to the stairwell. The gameroom is even farther from the 1st floor reducing any 'wake up noise' while the adults were being adults.

Question:

How close are the other cabins next to the Thistle Britches Cabin?

Answer:

Thistle Britches sits on 1 full acre and is on the highest elevation of all the cabins on the mountain. The cabin is surrounded on 3 sides by woodlands, and open to the front view with various trees.

Here is the perspective sitting on the deck facing out towards the view from the cabin:

Right of the cabin:

To the right is 180 degrees of pure woodlands, that grade up 250 feet to the sloping ridge of the mountain, on the other side of the ridge is another 100 acres of pure woods. If you take the short trail up there you can see a 30 mile view of the Valley on the backside of our mountain.

Behind the cabin:

Behind the cabin is 100% woodlands. The ridge follows straight back from the side of the cabin towards the back about 500 foot until the ridge slopes down and ends at a point. I have walked back through the small trail on the ridge to the point and found an awesome 320 degree view of the valley and Smoky Mountains and LeConte. It is at this point you tell is where the indians and civil war soldiers would have used to spot game or use as a lookout point.

Left-Front Corner of the Cabin

This is the 1/2 of the acre we have that contains woodland, and small brush and gently slopes down 400 foot to the end of the road below, further down the slope is a cabin of which is well hidden and more than far enough away.

Right - Front Corner

The front of the cabin contains plenty of trees to block the neighboring cabin of which is about a football field length away, this is the closest cabin to ours which is a very good distance. This neighboring cabin also is set up that their deck is on the other side so any visitors there are on the other side of the cabin from us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to take the time to thank you for such a nice retreat at your mountain home "Thistle Britches". This visit was for our 6th wedding anniversary.The view was absolutley amazing. The cabin itself was wonderful and felt so much like our "home away from home". We appreciated the fact that you take so much care in making sure your cabin is comfortable and cozy. We captured some GREAT pictures from the front porch ,as well as, the trail right outside the cabin. We loved this place so much that we didn't even want to leave. We can't wait to get back there. Thanks again. 2-4-09 to 2-8-09.

Awesome Cabin, Exactly as Described

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Thistle Britches from April 26-May 5 2009 and we didn't want to leave. This cabin was exactly as describe and viewed in the pictures. The owners are awesome, Jamie was very helpful with anything we called and asked him about. We loved the home feeling in the cabin and that it was well taken care of. We would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a great cabin with all the amenities but far enough away for some peace and quiet.

  • 4 of 5
Thank you Jamie and Amanda for sharing your cabin with us. We had a wonderful stay.
Cabin is just as decribed and what a great location, with having two eleven and one twelve year old who only wanted to do the theme parks this trip, it was great down the hill ,across the street and we were at Dollywood :). the view from cabin Beautiful. We watched the fireworks from Dollywood everynight from the deck what an awesome ring side seat we had. Better than in the park it's self.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay. The cabin was all they said it was and more. We had no problems, well it took me two tries to unlock the door but I had just gotten out of an 11 hr car ride lol. Not only was the cabin lovely, but it was convenient to everything we wanted to do. I loved that this cabin had a yard for the kids to play in and the view was lovely. We were very comfy here. The hot tub was wonderful after the hikes. The best activity of the trip was our white water rafting trip with Smokey Mountain Outdoors White Water Rafting. When we come back (and we will) we would like to stay here. It was well equiped to cook in (which we did almost every night). Thank you for sharing your lovely home; it made our vacation great.

Will go back!

The cabin had all the amenities we were looking for. I will name a few that were our favorites including: the amazing view of the mountains (the cabin was at the top of the mountain on the side we were on), having a nice big flat grassy area for our dog to play around on, a pool table, a hot tub, a jacuzzi tub, games, close proxemity to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, and the seclusion from other cabins. These were all of the major things on our wish list and this cabin had them all plus some. If we had to say anything negative, the only thing would be that the place wasn't as updated as some that we did see, but we were willing to give on that since it did have all the other things we wanted during our stay.

Secluded Home near towns

  • 4 of 5
There were 8 people in my party and one dog. The location was great, easy to find and very convienent. The home had everything we needed for cooking and cleaning. I would suggest bringing additional towels and garbage bags as those were the only things we ran out of. The hot tub was amazing except it wasn't covered and it rained most of the time we were there. The cabin is perfect for 6 but may be alittle to crowded for 8. The bathroom situation was unfavorable because there was no unattached bath available for use. All in all, we had a great time and slept very comfortably!

Owner's Response: Hi Amy, Glad you guys had a good time!

There were extra towels under the TV in the bedroom downstairs where we store "changeover" linens, wish we had known you guys were running low :( Usually our cleaner leaves extra bags under the sink.

Sorry to hear you had rain most of the time, definitely puts a damper on things. We thought about covering the hot tub, however we felt that would block out the stars, and open nature feeling on the clear nights which is the majority of the evenings.

Eight people is the max, it is best suited for 2 couples (king bedrooms), and kids (fold outs). Yes, both bathrooms are attached to each bedroom.

Beautiful Mountain Views

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect home for us to rent and experience Pigeon Forge for the very first time. As soon as I opened my car door I smelled the pines - so refreshing! The home was so cozy, clean and beautiful, and to hear the Dollywood locomotive train whistle echo through the mountains - it was great! The week was a beautiful fall week and we spent many afternoons sitting on the deck soaking up the warm sun and looking at the beautiful mountains and autumn colors. Although it was quite thrilling driving a 1/4 mile up the mountain to get to the cabin, but once you get the first round trip done, you're good from then on out, plus, it helped that the directions were dead on! We took my in-laws along with us who has never stayed at a vacation home before and they thoroughly enjoyed their stay and the entire trip. Our little dog, Isabella, loved it too. Dixie Stampede is a must - we truly enjoyed the meal too, and Bentley's BBQ was awesome. When going to Cades Cove, go early if you want to see any wildlife. We were bumper to bumper on a 11 mile loop which was very tiring. We didn't see any bear, but we did experience one. We woke up one morning and our storage container had been broken into and knocked apart I'm assuming by a bear - I guess he was after the bacon grease!! LOL. Anyway, love this place and the big screen TV, plus it's very peaceful and far enough away from the main drag - that's what I loved!! Thank you for sharing your home with us.
