Nice, new, 2 story, big, clean, perfectly located!

  • 5 of 5
The Shak is a new, two story, big, well furnished and clean cabin perfectly located 10 minutes from the main street of Pigeon Forge up on a mountain overlooking the Smoky Mountains. The website doesn’t do it justice, you have to be there to fully appreciate it.

We had never been to Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg area before, so when my daughter suggested our next family vacation should be in Pigeon Forge, we all agreed. There are 3 generations of us: My wife and I (upper 50’s), our two girls and their husbands (mid to lower 30’s) and our three grandchildren (14, 10 and 1).

We stayed in The Shak for one week. The cabin is new and well kept. It is clean and like our grandchild said, “Wow ! There is a TV is every room !”

Upstairs there is a big living area, full kitchen and two kitchen tables….a long one that seated all 9 of us (like you might have in a formal dining room) and a normal sized one (like you might have in the nook.) The upstairs is where we played cards and board games….and the TV usually had a cooking show on.
Downstairs was where the pool table crowd and the hot tub crowd stayed. The TV was usually tuned to the sports channel.

With 9 of us, we used the clothes washer and dryer a lot ! Oh, and the indoor spa whirlpool bathtub seemed to be in constant use, too. Very relaxing !

Pigeon Forge is a perfect place for a family vacation. Looking out the back porches, we could see the Smoky Mountains. In that direction is where we rode horses, zip-lined, white-water rafted, golfed, hiked and, yes, saw a bear ! In the other direction of the cabin is the town of Pigeon Forge. This is where we saw three wonderful evening shows (a dinner theater variety show, a magic show and a comedy show), spent a day at Dollywood (only a mile from the cabin), the ladies had a spa day and Gatlinburg was only a 15 – 20 minute drive away.

Van, the owner, is a very nice person. After booking our cabin, he gave us some useful tips that really helped make our trip more enjoyable. He owns another cabin, just like the Shak, only a few cabins down the road, so he was able to better accommodate our vacation scheduling. During our week stay, we called him once to ask a question and he was very helpful. He very much wanted us to enjoy our vacation. This is the kind of person we like to rent from.

It is going to be hard to find a better vacation town and cabin than what we just had. So….we’ll certainly go back ! Thank you Van !

Great Dollywood Property

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this cabin! The cabin was VERY clean when we arrived. The layout was great for our party of 10 people-6 adults, 3 young children, and a baby. Everything was working well and we did not have any problems. I highly recommend the cabin if you are looking for something close to Dollywood and close to the shopping on the Parkway.
