Rock your cares away on the patio-deck or enjoy playing pool right in your cabin. You may even want to end your wonderful day by relaxing in the jacuzzi bathtub in the privacy of your own bedroom.

Private Affair is a 1 BR/1 BA cabin with a hosts of amenities to accommodate your stay. It is a perfect cabin for honeymooners and couples but also has a convenient queen size 'inflatable mattress' bed that will allow another person to stay. The Master suite includes a king size bed, gas log fireplace in room, jacuzzi tub, and television. Bed and bath linens are also provided for your convenience.

This cabin has a fully functional kitchen with oven,stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, cookware and utensils and also a washer/dryer for your use during your stay. The kitchen bar and living room have an ample amount of living space for your comfort.

If location is key, Private Affair is perfect. It is located one mile from Dollywood Theme Park and Splash Country Water Park but offers the seclusion of a quiet and non-crowded area. It is also convenient (just 3 miles) from the main parkway of downtown Pigeon Forge and to many recreational activities for your enjoyment including hiking, live entertainment shows, mini-golf, go-karts, restaurants, shopping malls. Gatlinburg is only a close scenic five miles away.

About Mike Hrib

We love the Gatlinburg area and the Smoky Mountains. We also own 4 other log cabin rental properties in Pigeon Forge.

Mike Hrib purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Mike Hrib chose Tennessee

We looked at several locations in the mountains and this property offered a great view with easy access to the cabins even in winter conditions. In addition, it is located just minutes from anything that you want to do in Pigeon Forge but still offers privacy and seclusion from the main traffic area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ginger!

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your cabin. The cabin was beautiful and the view from the porch was perfect. We loved the location. It's both quiet yet convenient to everything. We hope you'll allow us to stay again the next time we visit the area. Thank you so much!

Expectations were not fully satisfied.

  • 3 of 5

First of all, this place is in a great location, not too far from the heart of Pigeon Forge. However, the picture of that astonishing view is somewhat deceiving of the actual view its self.

Problems that occurred:

Jacuzzi Tub Jets (Bedroom) wasn't operating correctly, to keep the jets on you would have to hold down the button. After my fiance tinkered with it he was able to get it to work.

Hot Tub: The button on the tub to control the heat needs to be replaced.

The cleanliness wasn't a grade A job. More like a C-. There were cob webs in the corners, spider web across the front door leading out to Hot tub. Also, outside light beside the entry door was filled 1/4 of the way with dead bugs piled upon each other (YUCK). That could be a fire hazard.

Also, Saturday morning the neighbor's house had construction workers nailing at 10 AM all throughout the day until 5. Very loud and uncomfortable for a 'relaxing get-a-way'. Could not enjoy the hot tub with several different construction workers staring!!!

After paying $559 for a Thursday-Sunday get-away. It was not worth it!

Overall, nice place just not worth MY money.

Beautiful, quiet stay

  • 5 of 5

The Private Affair property was absolutely breathtaking! The cabin itself was clean, the bed was comfortable, and it was close to attractions, yet still out of the way. The only thing I would recommend to people staying longer than a weekend would be to bring dishwasher detergent, trash bags, etc. from home so you don't have to make a special trip to buy more during your stay. The owner Mike was very helpful and was very responsive when we had a question. We will definitely stay again!

The property was beautiful, the cabin was beautiful

  • 3 of 5

The only problem we had was that the cabin needs a good cleaning, and a few maintenance repairs. Cobwebs in all windows, kitchen knife set, and hanging from the ceiling. Sweeper needed ran. The ceiling fan had a screw missing from the blades so when you turned it on it made a lot of noise and looked like it was going to fall down. Hot tub had several jets not working as well as the jet tub in the bedroom. With a little time and attention this place would be perfect. Air conditioner wasn't cooling when we got there but Spoke with the owner on the phone and he was very nice about everything and had someone there to fix it within a hour. We would stay again if things were fixed.

Owner's Response: The fan was fixed immediately. We fix everything as soon as it's brought to our attention. The maid had an unexpected illness and death in her immediate family and had a little trouble keeping up for a short while. I'm sorry your stay was less than perfect and am happy to hear that you will stay with us in the future. Thank you!

Beuatiful and private, yet close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful and clean, private, located in an area that is away from the main parts of town yet still conveniently close to everything. We stayed for a week with our two dogs, and would highly recommend it! You have just about everything you could need in the full kitchen, the view is beautiful, and the hot tub on the porch was great - we spent almost every evening out there. We were so pleased with our choice to stay at Private Affair!
