About Kristin

We moved from Michigan to Knoxville in 1978 to attend the University of Tennessee. We immediately fell in love with East Tennessee so we stayed and raised our family here. We're so fortunate to live at the gateway to one of the country's most beautiful and popular national parks.

Kristin purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Kristin chose Tennessee

We purchased our cabin in 2002 to allow us to be closer to the Smoky's for our hiking and fly-fishing adventures. The location at Big Bear Lodge & Resort is incredibly convenient to everything you need to enjoy this wonderful area. In 2012 we decided to forego rental management companies and rent on our own.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is perfect for guests who want to be close to shopping, restaurants, and all of the Pigeon Forge attractions, but still feel a sense of privacy. We love to use it for our 'base camp' for hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely loved the cabin - it was great. Had a great time in the mountains other than getting a little bruised from tubing down the river. The cabin was beautiful and our kids loved the bottom level - they basically had their own house down there. Thanks again and we will rent from you next time we visit the Smokey’s!

Great cabin at a fantastic price

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our family of 4 vacation. Very roomy & clean. The kids had their own little "apartment" in the basement, which was really nice. The master bedroom was literally THE most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, I'll be missing that for sure! It's located right in the hart of Pigeon Forge, so depending on what you're looking for, that may be a pro or a con. I've stayed at more secluded places, which were nice for a romantic vacation, but we had the kiddos with us, so this was just fine. Short drive to all the action. Very close to the outlet mall, Wonderworks & The Island area. Easily walkable. The indoor & outdoor pools were decent & the hot tub in the cabin was very nice. Our stay was wonderful & I'd definitely stay here again.

We really liked the cabin and the location. We put the kids downstairs and we were upstairs which worked out great. Netflix's was a nice bonus. Will recommend to anyone I know wanting a nice getaway in the Mountains! Thanks!

Outstanding Property

  • 4 of 5

My friends, my husband and I had a wonderful time at Kristen and Rusty's vacation home. The cabin was beautiful, roomy and clean. We will definitely keep this home in mind the next time we make a trip to Pigeon Forge. The location was terrific, not to far from town and very quite and peaceful. We loved the fact we could take our fur babies with us. The only drawback was the hot tub did not heat up or run correctly. Other than that, it was a great place. Thank you Kristen and Rusty for letting us rent your vacation home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. We do think we have a great location and love that you agree. We were unaware of the hot tub issues and will get that looked at. Sorry for the inconvenience but glad you had a good time. Rusty & Kristin

Adorable and spacious!!

The pictures don't do this cabin justice! We loved it and would defiantly return again! The setting was beautiful. Close to anything we wanted to do and far enough away to feel like we were in our own little world.
