About Janet Ingram-Giffee
I moved to East Tennessee from Wisconsin Dells, Wisc. in 2008. I never get tired of the ever changing view of the mountains and the four mild seasons the area has to offer. I grew up working with tourists and loved the idea of living on vacation- which is what life feels like everyday when you live on the border of such a beautiful national park! I am currently a Realtor in the Great Smoky Mountains, so I get to enjoy the drive and views everyday. According to the National Park Service, the bear population in the park is over 1600 bears and growing, along with deer, elk, turkey, groundhogs, wolves and many other small forest animals making the park their home. The fall leaf color displays start in mid-September in the elevations higher than 4000 feet (Mt. LeConte, Mt. Guyot, Clingmans Dome, Newfound Gap and along the Appalachian Trail) in the Park and surrounding Smokies, reaching their peak from October 1-15. In the lower elevations of about 1000 feet (Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg) peak color is usually seen October 15- November 7. Some suggested drives to enjoy the colors are Little River and Laurel Creek Roads between Sugarlands Visitors Center and Cades Cove. Keep in mind that traffic on Newfound Gap Road and Cades Cove Loop Roads are very heavy during leaf season, especially late in the day. So get up early and enjoy—then go for pancakes! or pack a picnic lunch. The Cades Cove motor loop is closed to motor vehicles until 10:00a.m. every Saturday and Wednesday mornings from May until late September. This allows bicyclists and pedestrians to enjoy the roads of Cades Cove without worrying about vehicle traffic.

Why Janet Ingram-Giffee chose Pigeon Forge
This is one of the few cabins that has a beautiful mountain view without driving scary mountain roads. It is easily accessible in most any weather and 5-15 minutes to all of the attractions the area has to offer. The resort is gated and well maintained with a community pool at the end of the street. To get this amazing view is less than 100 feet up a slightly steep driveway with level parking at the top where you can turn around.
What makes this Cabin unique
Goodnight Kisses is cozy the moment you walk in.This true log cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway, honeymoon couple, anniversary, or a get-together with family and friends. It sleeps 4 comfortably. The large master bedroom suite has a king-sized bed with an adjoining master bath, whirlpool tub & corner electric fireplace. You can enjoy the view of the mountains from the dining room table while eating, on the front of the wrap around deck while you are grilling steaks, from the living room while watching a movie and from the loft while playing a game of pool. When you decide to relax in the hot tub in the evening, it is tucked away on the back deck for privacy away from the other cabins. My favorite time is watching the sun come up over the mountains while enjoying my morning coffee. The mountains bring an unbelievable peaceful feeling that you never tire of!

The cabin and it’s location were great. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks again for making our experience Awesome!!!
The cabin was beautiful!
It was very clean and comfortable.
Janet was wonderful to work with. Very responsive to any question we had.
Our GPS took us in from the opposite direction and we didn't realize it.
Make sure you use the entrance not by the pool, then follow Janet's directions. We were looking for the cabin on the wrong side of the road. Janet walked us through it and we were fine from there.
We had a great time!
Property was very clean and the process to rent it was very easy. Very close to everything. Would definitely rent again!
Great place to stay
We had a wonderful stay at Goodnight Kisses. Janet was friendly and helpful, coming through immediately when the code didn't work. We would definitely rent this cabin again!
Spent a great anniversary in Pigeon Forge. Loved having this quaint house as our base to relax and enjoy our time.
Goodnight kisses was awesome! The cabin was clean, in a great location, and the views were wonderful! My family enjoyed the cabin! Everything was great! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
