GREAT VIEW NEAR DOLLYWOOD

Pigeon Forge Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This chalet offers privacy with no other cabins in sight, but with a great view of Ober Gatlinburg from the screened back porch which has a swing and rockers for relaxing. It's located high enough to offer a nice view, without having to go up a lot of steep winding roads.

It's within 5 minutes of Dollywood and the public golf course and 10 minutes to great food and shows along the Parkway in Pigeon Forge. It even has a wedding chapel within walking distance.

There's a hot tub off the back porch and inside there's a jetted tub in the downstairs bathroom where 2 of the bedrooms are located. The second bedroom and 2nd bathroom are located upstairs. Each bedroom has TV with DVD and video library. For additional entertainment, there's a pool table upstairs.

Lamps in the chalet are designs of the Hautman Brothers who are wildlife artists with works in Smithsonian and the White House.

Why Andy Carver chose Pigeon Forge

Nice view with privacy, but convenient to Dollywood & attractions along the Parkway.

What makes this chalet unique

Nice size porch (8' x 38') with rockers & swing to enjoy the mountain view. The porch is screened to keep out insects & a good place for pets to enjoy being outside without worrying about them wandering off or other animals attacking them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Smokies are beautiful - so grateful we were able to see them. The cabin is cute, love the porch. The boys loved the pool table. WE WILL HAVE MANY FOND MEMORIES OF STAYING HERE.

Perfect Spring Break Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Five of us - my brother and his wife, our mom, myself and my little boy - spent four days at Dolly's Shadow last week. The cabin was homey and cozy, like spending the night at Grandma's house. Except for the fall leaves it looked exactly as it does in the website photos. Dolly's Shadow is perfectly located with respect to local sights and activities. The owners were gracious and helpful in providing us tips on how to optimize our few days there, and we had a blast! In four days we experienced just about every kind of food, fun and WEATHER early spring in the Smokies can throw at you! We spent our first drippy, foggy morning in the cabin, then later ventured out to a couple of wine tastings, followed by a HUGE dinner at the Old Mill Restaurant. The next day was bright and sunny but the wind made it bitter cold! We rode the Trolley about town, hit another wine tasting then spent a few hours at The Island -- ate pomme frites at Poyner's, watched and sampled fudge making, enjoyed the dancing waters fountain and my son and I did the mirror maze and Ferris wheel (w/ glass-enclosed, HEATED cars - thank you!). Day 3 was sunny and warmer with no wind, perfect for an afternoon on Parrot Mountain. Yes, we now have family photos with tropical birds on our heads :-) But our last full day was my favorite... after a huge homemade breakfast in the cabin -- steak and eggs, hash browns, cheese grits, biscuits w/ local "mountain berry" preserves and lots of coffee -- we took off for Smoky Mountain Nat'l Park and Cade's Cove to walk it off. I wish I could post pictures but they wouldn't do it justice - it was spectacular! Bright and sunny one minute and huge banks of black clouds blowing heavy snow showers the next, off and on all afternoon. The sunny meadows and dark mountains in the Cove were a perfect backdrop for such a display - it was surreal! I can't describe the awesome beauty of God's creation in that place. And throughout our short but oh-so-sweet visit, Dolly's Shadow was a perfect home away from home for what, according to our 8 year old, was the BEST. SPRING BREAK. EVER! To the owners, thank you SO MUCH for helping make our little extended family get-away a precious lifetime memory. Your gracious and generous hospitality are deeply appreciated! Blessings to you both!

Beautiful, breath taking, relaxing, ect.

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was exceptional. Very cozy, clean, could not have stayed anywhere else and it feel like your at home. Everything you need is with a couple mins away if not already there. The view is absolutely breath taking. The owners are very helpful with any information that you may need about the area. They gave us tips and must visit prior to our arrival. The cleaners are very polite does a wonderful job and must say if they lived close by I'd hire them at home. If there was any problems we had all contact information to contact each and everyone in case of an emergency. I can honestly say that I would recommend this cabin to anyone who would listen. It's family friendly as well as and all adult excursion. This is a highly recommended cabin for future stays. Thank you so much and God bless!!

Our new home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I vacationed here for 4 days. It was a first for both of us to stay somewhere other then a hotel. The communication with the owner was very friendly and informative with smooth transaction. When we arrived we were very amazed not only with the view but with the cabin itself. It was very clean and very well decorated. We felt as if we belonged there. We will use this cabin in the future as we plan to come back for another vacation with our children. This will definately be our home away from home whenever we travel south again. Thank you again for helping our vacation be an amazing and comfortable experience.

Our 3rd vacation at Dolly's Shadow

Our 3rd vacation at Dolly's Shadow
  • 5 of 5
We love staying at Dolly's Shadow. The fireworks on New Years Eve were beautiful. People in several different locations were setting them off. You can see for miles and miles from the porch and hot tub.
Everything was perfect, and it's always a plus to do business with such nice people. We are looking forward to our next stay at Dolly's Shadow. It's the perfect mountain vacation home.

Great Smoky Mountain Vacation

  • 4 of 5
We really like this place. It's very peaceful and relaxing. This was our second time staying here. The house is surrounded by woods and wildlife. We love it! The outside hot tub will spoil you. Inside the house there is a comfortable recliner and sofa. The bed we slept in was nice and comfortable. I have no complaints and would recommend this house to anyone. The owners, Andy and Jane are super nice people and wonderful to do business with. I look forward to our next stay at Dolly's Shadow.

Terrible start to a vacation

  • 1 of 5
Extremely disappointed. Cabin was not clean upon our arrival and after calling the owner the cleaning lady did show up to clean and called at 7pm to say we could return. Upon returning we had to finish the laundry because she did not have time which entailed us making our own beds and getting to be after midnight. The owner was not sympathic but said her would let us stay an extra night , which we couldn't because we had to be back at work. Said he would return out cleaning fee but sent a letter stating the "cleaning lady" said it took her 2 hours to clean so he felt the time equaled out therefore would not return our cleaning fee. This is our word against the cleaning lady's since the owner is in Alabama. This cabin is Very outdated with worn furniture, terrible parking and clearly not as nice as he states. You may rent if you would like but please be aware you too will be disappointed. Let me also say we had another cabin rented for the same price for other family members and it was beautiful, clean and the owner was very nice. This cabin has absolutely NO VIEW and is in need of repair. Two of the children scraped the foot on the worn steps. So if you are looking for a nice vacation you might want to look futher.

Owner's Response: The guest who signed the rental agreement said he didn't actually stay in the cabin. He said he rented it for his 2 young daughters, so he was reapeating what they told him. He said one of the dauthters is handicapped, so he likes to know about parking before he rents. He went by the cabin a few weeks before he checked in & had no complaints or concerns at that time. The cleaners did leave the cabin off her list (this is the only time she has ever missed a cleaning for us) & apologized to the daughters when she got there. She cleaned the cabin & finished about 6:00 (checkin is 4:00). Beds were made & clean towels were in bathrooms, the only things left were extra towels she left in the dryer. She offered to come back & take them out of the dryer, but the daughers said they would take care of it & everything was "fine" (getting into bed by midnight was due to their sightseeing). THE RENTAL AGREEMENT SAYS NOTHING ABOUT ANY KIND OF REFUND. It says that if the cabin isn't clean to notify us ASAP & we will clean it which we did. However, the cleaner said since it was her error, she wouldn't charge for cleaning, so I REFUNDED THE FULL CLEANING FEE TO THE GUESTS. I told them that if they weren't happy, they could find another place & I would refund their money. After the cabin was cleaned, they said "Everything is fine" & they wanted to stay. Their complaint was because THEY WANTED TO STAY IN THE CABIN, BUT ALSO DEMANDED A REFUND BECAUSE OF THE 2 HOUR DELAY IN CLEANING THE CABIN. I actually wrote another check to compensate them for the their inconvenience (again not part of the rental agreement) & was getting ready to mail it until I talked to the cleaners. She said that the guests had left trash all over the cabin, dirty dishes in the sink, & baby feces on the bathroom walls. She said because the cabin was so dirty, it took her an ADDITIONAL 2 hours to clean the cabin (about 1/2 a day total time). The rental agreement states that trash is to be put in the trash cans outside, dishes are to be put in the dish washer & dish washer turned on, beds stripped, etc. (it doesn't say anything about baby feces on the walls) & additional cleaning time is to be deducted from the security deposit. I RETURNED THE FULL SECURITY DEPOSIT + CLEANING FEE & TOLD THESE GUESTS TO NEVER CONTACT US AGAIN TO RENT A CABIN.
