What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is Owner-operated The management of Alpine Mountain Village does not play games. This is a family resort. If you're looking for a place to party and raise hell, this is not the place that you're looking for.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We want to thank you for allowing us to use your cabin during Thanksgiving . It was a very restful trip. It was close to everything and vey quite. You can tell by the decor that you take pride in your cabin. We really enjoyed the Indian decor since we have Cherokee in our back ground. Thank you for being so kind and helpful when we were trying to book the cabin. May God bless you . Bobby and Wilma

A cozy get away

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in the perfect location for a quiet get away. At the same time it is just minutes away from downtown Pigeon Forge and all of the fun and excitement of the Smokey's. The cottage is in excellent condition and has all of the amenities. We felt welcome and at home.

Dakota Lodge is our favorite place in the mountains!!!

  • 5 of 5

Sisters weekend in Dakota Lodge was perfect. Me and my two sisters spent a fabulous few days resting, talking, shopping, eating and just laughing a lot. The cabin is so close to everything, you can go in and out several times a day. We shopped some, then relaxed at the cabin, we didn't want to leave but we would go out some at night. The Island is so close, we could go every night. We love the layout of the cabin, the porch swing is perfect for relaxing. Michael is wonderful to work with. He always wants to make sure you have everything you need. My two grandchildren love to go here. They don't ever want to leave the cabin when we go. Thank you Michael for a much needed get-a-way for me and my sisters. We loved it. Being close to everything is a big plus for this cabin!!!

Great Summer Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience using VRBO as well as going on a vacation in Tennessee. We had a wonderful experience, enjoyed our stay at a wonderful cabin (home away from home). Although we did not cook at all while being on vacation, it was nice to know I could have if we wanted to stay in. My husband, our son (Chance) and I enjoyed our vacation immensely. We loved that the cabin was in a peaceful quiet area away from the hustle and bustle. But then again everything was within minutes of the cabin so it was so convenient. The drive from Charlotte NC was only 4 hours so it was a nice get away but still close to home. Looking forward to our next vacation.

Absolutely prefect!

  • 5 of 5

Dakota Lodge was better than we could have possibly hoped for, especially booking last minute. It's a beautiful, very spacious cabin in a prime location. We were thrilled with our stay, we only wished it could have been longer! I sincerely hope we'll have the opportunity to stay there again :) Thank you!
