In 2006 we took a family trip to Pigeon Forge for the first time. We instantly fell in love with the area, its people, its beauty, and its serenity! We loved the cabin lifestyle and knew immediately that it would be our dream to own one. So during that summer, we began our search. We must have visited over 50 properties! 'Making Memories Too' was 'love at first sight!' It took us over one year to find it but in September 2007, we made it our own.
'Making Memories Too' is special because of its unique location. It is close to town. We are near the Pigeon Forge Parkway where most attractions are found and down the street from Dollywood's service entrance and the Gatlinburg Golf Course. The city of Gatlinburg is only about 15 minutes away! But, we are also far enough from the 'hussle and bussle'. This allows for the privacy and the closeness to nature one desires when visiting the Smoky Mountain National Park. Our favorite activities while visiting are hiking, snowboarding, white water rafting, zip-lining, and enjoying the area's diverse wild life and unique plant life. The cabin also sits on a 1/2 acre leveled lot which affords it ample parking and usable yard space. The kids just love being able to run around and play games on its yard! The cabin itself is like a 'doll house'! It has a wrap around deck, allowing total enjoyment of its natural surroundings while barbequing, or enjoying a dip in the jacuzzi, or just quietly rocking on its many rocking chairs or swing. The interior is spacious but cozy. The layout is perfect to allow privacy while still enjoying a family gathering. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for the challenge of even a Thanksgiving dinner! It is truly the perfect place to make lasting memories, thus its name 'Making Memories Too'. We visit often and truly love spending time at our home. It is truly magical! Our goal is to share our joy with our guests in the hope that you, too, make memories that last a lifetime!!!
