FALL IS NEARING... DISCOUNTS FOR COPS, NURSES, TEACHERS

Pigeon Forge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Discounts for fellow law enforcement, nurses and teachers. Other specials include rent 6, get 7th night free. We have attempted to create a peaceful place for our family to vacation in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area, (Wears Valley) next to the Smokey Mountain National Park. I think we have been successful. This is our escape from our fast paced life in South Florida. We invite you to share our home and we hope you become a repeat guest.

The 'Gristmill Get-a-way', is a beautifully decorated, 2100 square feet, three bedroom/three bath log cabin located in an upscale community at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Plenty of stuff to do in the house, but we encourage you to use this as your base, to explore everything the area has to see, and there is truly something for everyone.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • Events Allowed
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible

We would love to invite you to be our guests in our vacation home. Ours is not a typical cookie cutter rental property with outdated decorations, bought by someone as an investment. Our guests are encouraged to call me on my cell phone 24/7 for anything from roadside service or to report a light bulb being out.

I am originally from Oak Ridge, Tennessee and we live in South Florida. We built this cabin in 2004 and realized we could only visit 3-4 times a year so we decided to share our home with others.

I am a retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer and my wife is a Nurse Practioner, so we decided to give discounts, to first responders and nurses, along with teachers. (who needs a bigger break than teachers?)

We love to travel and the picture of our family was taken in Summer of 2011 in Banff, Canada.

Alan McGhee purchased this cabin in 2004

Our cabin is located in Wears Valley, just about 15 minutes from Dollywood, in an upscale neighborhood named 'The Homestead.' We are just far enough away from the hussle/bussle of Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg,(plenty of discount shopping and people watching) yet close enough if I want to go into town. Also, we are just about 20 minutes from Cades Cove, which is a must for any visitor. Our cabin is on a cul-de-sac with only one other house within site, (all houses are on 1.5 acres or more) making it very, very peaceful. One of the main reasons we picked our lot in the Homestead is the road`s are very gentle sloping and wide two lanes, making the drive to our cabin feel very safe. The Homestead also has its own hiking and nature trails.

GREAT ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was very spacious there was 8 of us staying here. This cabin was on the quite end of the park which was nice. Location was great for relaxation, yet close enough to local attractions in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Very quite neighborhood. Air conditioning was great. We had a wonderful time here for our stay. Would absolutely stay here again. Thanks for letting us into your home. We are going to be recommending this to some people that we work with that are looking at that area.

TOTAL RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here during Spring Break and loved every minute. The cabin is beautiful and was perfect for our party of 8. Four teenage girls took up residence in the lower level which gave them privacy from the adults. The cabin was very well supplied with all needed amenities. The home is secluded and quiet but very accessible to area attractions. Great views, lots of nature! We would definitely return.

THE BEST CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was wonderful! Clean, comfortable and cozy! There were 5 of us and it was so spacious. The jetted tub in the master....Oh my! It was a little bit of heaven. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your home and for giving this nurse a restful vacation! The owner is so nice. Hospitality at it's finest!

THIS ONE HAS IT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was fantastic for a weekend getaway for my family including my children and grand babies! Having each bedroom on a different floor provided for alone time when the babies needed to sleep or grandma needed a moment or two of quiet! The game room with the big screened tv, pool table, and dart table provided fun activities as well as the loft with books, games, and puzzles or the hot tub on the deck. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils for our stay in and cook weekend. The owners were MOST helpful, pleasant, and kind. We loved this cabin and our stay here!

A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We travelled from Canada with our two children (14 & 11) and it was our first time vacationing in Tennessee. Alan was a superb host and provided personal knowledge of the area which we found very helpful. The cabin is spacious and allowed us and each child to have a bedroom and bathroom on a separate floor. It was clean and well maintained. It is located in a very peaceful area of the Smoky Mountains. It was serine morning, noon or night. We throughly enjoyed the hot tub in the morning or at night and were suprised by the lack of insects/bugs.. Hummerbirds would flirt with you while enjoying a hot tea or wine or reading a book on the wrap around porch. The evenings brought the circada and they would sing til the early morning. There is so much to do in the area. We enjoyed the Dixie Stampede Dinner Show, the Titanic Museum and shopping to name but a few. The ride to and from the cabin is a treat with it's roller coaster twists and turns. The National Park and Cades Cove where first class. We can only imagine the beauty of this setting in the fall of the year with the trees are changing colours. This transaction was seamless and our security deposit was refunded promptly. We look forward to another stay.

AWESOME CABIN RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My parents, sisters family and my family rented this cabin for a weeks vacation. Can't begin to tell you what an excellent time we had. The 3 levels on the home provided privacy for each family with a bedroom and bathroom on every level as well as a pull out couch for the kids right outside of each bedroom. The cabin was very clean. During our stay we had a problem with the well/water. Alan responded immediately and had it fixed promptly. He was great to work with and worried about making sure we were comfortable during our stay. If you have never been to this area, we would highly recommend it. There is so much to see and do. We had ages ranging from 11 to 68 and the activities offered in the area hit everyone. Some things we tried and would recommend are zip lining, Dollywood, biking in Cades Cove (saw a bear with her 3 cubs), shopping on the Gatlinburg strip and whitewater rafting. The cabin is about 20 minutes from all the activities, but we enjoyed being away from the commotion when it was time to relax. The hot tub was inviting and very clean after a long day of walking at Dollywood or riding bikes at Cades Cove (which is right next to the cabin). If you are looking to stay in a well kept and comfortable cabin with great hospitality and attentiveness, this is the place for you! We hope to someday return to this cabin so we can try snowboarding here too.
