I can not say enough good things about this place and the owner! We stayed there for a girls weekend and we will definitely be coming back to stay again! The cabin is gorgeous and clean and so comfortable and has everything you need. The owner is delightful and truly wants to make your stay amazing! We couldn't figure out the fireplace so I sent a text asking how to turn it on. She immediately had someone come over and show us how to work it and to make sure it was working properly. I've done a lot of weekend getaways with various rental sites and I can honestly say she was the best host I have ever dealt with! I highly recommend this place!

Picture perfect home. Very easy access to Gatlinburg (less than 5 mins. ) and Pigeon forge.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful vacation home was perfect. We had 4 adults and 6 children ranging in ages from 6 months to 14 yoa. There is more than enough space for everyone. The older kids stayed downstairs and was more than entertained with the game room and hot tub. The bedrooms are all nicely decorated and beds were very comfortable. The whole experience at The Retreat was just fabulous but the thing that impressed me the most was the owner, Kathy. She was such a joy to talk to and so helpful. I've never in many years of traveling had someone so generous and thoughtful to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be returning to this beautiful home. And Kathy thank you for everything!!

Why Kathryn Shields chose Gatlinburg

The Retreat is nestled in the heart of Gatlinburg. Just 5 minutes from Downtown and 15 minutes from Pigeon Forge. The views from the cabin are breathtaking. And there is nothing better than getting back from a hike or tubing or a day downtown and taking a Jacuzzi while chili is on the stove.

This cabin is truly a cut above other similar cabins, boasting the brand new gourmet refrigerator, stove and oven as well as all new kitchen appliances. The theater now allows one to view not only DVD movies but cable television as well. The games room will keep the kids happy while the parents enjoy time alone. And finally with new beds and mattresses throughout you will enjoy very restful and peaceful sleep.

Walking the streets of Gatlinburg with a warm caramel apple and fresh apple cider will take you back in time.

The food is amazing. Whether you have reservations at the Peddler or simply want the best pizza ever at the Mellow Mushroom, you will not be disappointed with the vast array of options. And the surroundings make the food taste and smell even better.

If you have never had the opportunity to see Gatlinburg you will not be disappointed. And if you have visited before, Gatlinburg stays the same. Regardless of age there are attractions that will interest everyone in the family.

The Smokey Mountain National park entrance is just 10 minutes from the cabin. Driving through the park is a must as the views are endless and the hiking trails leading to the Appalachian trail are easily accessible. The hikes range from very simple strolls to very aggressive trails such as the Chimney Tops or the Alum Cave Bluff trail that I did with my family many times as a child.

Finally after a long hike the streams are wonderful to just sit and listen to the peace and quiet or if you are a little more brave you can certainly walk on the rocks surrounding the streams. Many folks have picnics right along the streams.

Nature is at its best in the Smokies.
