Pigeon Forge Cabins

Renting a cabin while vacationing in Pigeon Forge could add a very nice balance to one's trip. Pigeon Forge, while offering many, many delightful attractions, is reputed to be a bit low on charm. Staying in a beautifully appointed cabin in a woodlands-like setting could offer real refreshment after a day poking around outlet malls, screaming on roller coasters, and eating one's weight in funnel cakes.

Pigeon Forge is essentially the little town that Dollywood built. As with any tourist town, the majority of main-drag lodgings are cookie-cutter motel rooms, squeezed between fast food restaurants, outlet stores, and "genuine Appalachian" plastic gizmos. Don't misunderstand me: Pigeon Forge is a lot of fun, and a great place to visit. In fact, their outlet shopping is a jaw dropper. But the strip itself may not be the place you want to stay if you were hoping for a relaxing trip, full of the beauty of nature.

Pigeon Forge Cabins: Off the Main Drag

As a result, many travelers opt to stay in quieter parts of the village, or even in more woodland-like environments, to strike the right balance of fun and relaxation. Pigeon Forge isn't very big; one place is pretty close to every other place in town. Travel time in and around Pigeon Forge is about the same no matter where you stay.

Some people actually opt to stay closer to Gatlinburg, which is a little more refined in character. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are only seven miles in distance from each other, and local shuttle buses run all day--and well into the night--between the two communities. Many lovely and luxurious cabins are available smack dab between the two villages, providing both the natural charm of a lovely log home, and easy access to all the fun of Pigeon Forge.
