About Sarah

We are a couple from Charleston, SC and while we love the beach we also love vacationing in the mountains! We rented so many cabins before deciding to buy ours and love helping to give others the wonderful experiences we enjoy so much!

Sarah purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Sarah chose Sevierville

Gatlinburg was the second mountain vacation we ever took together and just fell in love with the area! We like everything that Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have to offer but also knew that there were areas where the cabins are so private and you can just tuck yourself away in one of them and just enjoy eachother or your family! Also, the fall leaves are more beautiful here than any other place in the US!

What makes this cabin unique

Forbidden Pleasure is special in the fact that it is not just somewhere to stay while you are up in the mountains. It is a place where memories are created from Honeymoons, to Anniversarys, graduations, homecomings, family trips, or just a getaway we have found that we along with the rest of our family leave the cabin and are already planning the next time when we can come back!

Nice but cold and smelly

  • 3 of 5

We had an amazing time on our honeymoon! The cabin was just what we needed, However, a few things could have been better. Once we arrived at cabin, we passed it first because there was no Forbidden Pleasure sign or lights on and the place looked abandoned. Once we got out to pick up sign we saw off ground, we realized it was the cabin. Inside the cabin was nice but deff could have used a better cleaning. Our worst complaint would be about how COLD and smelly downstairs in the bedroom was. They had space heaters, but only one worked and it wasn't enough to warm the room. It stayed freezing! The smell hits you midway down the stairs to bedroom and in the room. It was like an old cat pee smell. I'm guessing by the scratches on the upstairs door, pets or other animals have been allowed and maybe just not properly cleaned after.

On another note, the bed was very comfortable, the fire place upstairs was awesome(wish we had it downstairs), and the hot tub was perfect! Even though there were somethings we would change about the cabin, we didn't let it ruin our honeymoon and made the most out of the cabin!

Owner's Response: Congratulations on your recent wedding! We love helping people celebrate their honeymoon in our romantic cabin! I am so sorry about our sign! We have motion lights outside but not any permanent ones and realize it can be quite dark until you pull in the driveway. We appreciate your complaint about the bedroom temperature and have purchased 2 new space heaters. As far as the is not due to animals. We have a septic system at our cabin and sometimes the downstairs bathroom has a bit of a musty smell. This is normal for a septic system, and routinely have it checked to make sure everything is functioning properly. I apologize for the inconvenience. We are so glad you enjoyed the comfortable bed! That plus the black out curtains make it very easy to sleep in! We hope to hear from you in the future for an anniversary trip!

Nothing like expected

  • 3 of 5

The cabin wasn't very clean, hair on the counters and the trash smelled really bad every time you walked out the door. The steps (should I say step?) out front were too big and hard to climb for older people. The inside needs better lighting downstairs, possibly more lamps or something. The porch light needs to be better as well and possible a light that stays on out on the driveway. I was expecting a lot more from the way it was described and the pictures made it look at lot better than it actually was. It wasn't a bad cabin but it needs a little maintenance and TLC.

Owner's Response: Thank you for renting our cabin and thank you for your constructive criticism. We are always looking for ways to improve our cabin for our guests. We encourage our guests to inform us of any cleanliness complaints at the time of their stay so we can correct it in the moment, but I will bring this to the attention of my cleaning manager. We have just added more light to the bedroom as we have had a few guests request this. Outside we have 2 flood lights on the front porch, 1 on the grill porch, and 3 motion lights on the driveway. It is possible that a bulb was out at the time of this stay, and we will remedy this. Again, thank you for your constructive criticism, and we hope to have you come stay with us in the future!

We really enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was really nice no dust dirt or bugs very comfortable . with my wife and I in our 60 s the stairs were a little hard to manage. Our first night there was a power outage, luckily we had a flash light with us with no phone service I was only able to call 911 but they were really nice and got Sevierville power out there within 30 minutes and they power restored within 45 minutes after their arrival. Maybe some kind of emergency kit would help. We opted to use the bath tub instead of the hot tub when we turned on the jet rust colored film came out of the jets so we ran hot water and anti bacterial soap thru it to clean it before we could use it. But yes we had a great time. Thank you very much

My fiancé and I loved staying at the cabin! Mountain roads were easily navigable and cabin was easy to find. Perfect location between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Hot tub on the patio soooo relaxing after long days of hiking! Didn't want to leave!

Beautiful Setting Great property

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is centrally located with easy access to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg to enjoy all the activities available in both locations. Good news when you arrive at the cabin you feel you are in your own secluded mountain getaway very peaceful and nice views from the porches on both floors. The cabin is very nicely appointed with an open floor plan and everything you need for your stay. The owner is attentive and a great communicator from reservation to departure, no suprises! We will definitely be staying here again!
