Overview

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:
  • Events Allowed
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

About Alan McGhee

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 Ours is not a typical cookie cutter rental property with outdated decorations, bought by someone as an investment.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

Why Alan McGhee chose Pigeon Forge

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.

Beautiful, Peaceful Location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for our first weekend getaway with family. Very impressed with this cabin! It's small enough to feel cozy, but the 3 levels, open loft, and decks make it big enough to spread out and find a quiet spot. The location is awesome - still within 30 minutes of the Pigeon Forge attractions, yet far enough away from the commercialization to enjoy some peace. I appreciate that the development (the Homestead) isn't cookie-cutter and has very large lots so you don't feel crammed in like sardines. We really loved having the wet bar/mini fridge downstairs as we loaded it up with snacks and cold drinks and spent most of our evenings playing pool, darts, and watching movies.

It snowed heavily while we were there (Nov 1 - super early for us) and we lost power (and well water) for a day, so spent that time in the city. The only other negative was about 3 gazillion ladybugs when we arrived, but I think that was due to the abrupt change in temperature so probably couldn't be prevented. I would recommend buying bottled water for drinking as the well water does have a slight sulfur smell. Overall this cabin was clean and well cared-for, so I highly recommend it!

Carolina Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Carolina girls weekend! We had a wonderful time staying at your cabin and it met all of our needs. Although it was a bit of a drive to go into PF and didn't have a mountain view from the decks due to the trees, we still enjoyed our time there. One improvement would be treating the water. It smelled terribly so we purchased drinking water. I think you have a lovely home and it is setup nicely for your guests!

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.
