Overview

About the property

2 bedroom with loft, 2 bathroom close to all the action of Pigeon Forge

ESCAPE to the MOUNTAINS for a much needed getaway in this gorgeous cabin located near Pigeon Forge (4 minutes to the parkway). This quiet and warm hideaway is just what you need for time away with family or friends. This cabin sleeps 6 with lots of room and comfort. The master bedroom has a huge four poster king size bed, while the 2nd lofted bedroom area has a queen size bed and a separate trundle bed under a twin bed. All mattresses are new as of the fall of 2017 with memory foam mattresses. Sleep in comfort. Plenty of room for the whole family! It has two bathrooms so there is plenty of room for everyone to get ready for seeing a show in town! Family Matters even has an enclosed porch right off the kitchen with lots of windows to just sip some coffee or tea in the rocking chairs while taking in some fresh mountain air no matter what the season. With a fully equipped kitchen, spending time together doesn't have to be costly. Cook dinner in or on the charcoal grill and spend the evening playing one of the games that is right there in the cabin or while watching a favorite movie on the vcr/dvd player or Netflix or Hulu. It has wifi as well, but currently we do not have cable or satellite as most people are out and about on vacation not inside watching tv. This cabin is perfect for getting away from it all, yet being close enough to be in all the action within minutes. It provides the best of both worlds. And, you can pack light because there is a washer and dryer right there to wash things up before you head back home. Family Matters offers free Wi-Fi and also has an air hockey table on the back porch for those days that may find you in the competitive spirit. Parking is located directly in front of the cabin. Linens are provided. A starter supply (1 roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, 1 roll of paper towels, etc.) of toiletries is provided. No extra cleaning fees. Everything is included in rates quoted. (Any damages will be extra. This cabin is a non-smoking, no pet cabin.)

Please note this is a mountain ecosystem. There are bugs, scorpions, snakes, spiders and other wildlife. Most likely during your visit, you will see and encounter one or more of these species, some on purpose and others not on purpose. The biggest question we receive is about scorpions. There are two types of scorpions that are native to the Smoky Mountain area. Neither of these are poisonous like the ones out west. They can sting, but it is equivalent to that of a wasp or bee. While we treat our home for all possible species available through a professional company, scorpions are still able to climb up drain pipes and enter the home. If you see one of these, please do not panic. Simply step on it with your shoe and dispose of it. They tend to be more active during hot and dry spells, looking for a source of water. So your odds of seeing a scorpion are higher during the summer months when there has been minimal rain.

Rates vary by season. Please see calendar for more information.

A note from the new owners - We recently bought Family Matters after visiting the area multiple times every year for the past couple decades. After looking at well over a hundred homes, we came across this cabin named Family Matters. It seemed perfect from the get go simply because our family matters so much to us. After seeing it in person, it really fit all of our needs and criteria. We love spending time with our family here and making new memories together. We hope that your family will find it to be a good fit as well. We hope that you all enjoy it as much as we do and have a wonderful trip to the area!

About Michelle Huntsman

Over the past several decades, my husband and I both visited the area with our families while growing up. Upon meeting each other, we began the same tradition together, and have continued it with our own kids. The area offers a never ending list of things to do, and we found that we are most happy when we are there spending time together. We finally made the decision about two and half years ago to purchase a home there since we found ourselves navigating back to the beautiful area four to five times a year. Truly, it is the most amazing place on earth that we have discovered. We hope to share our home making many more memories over the years to come with our children as they grow, and eventually their children.

What makes this cabin unique

So quiet in a peaceful neighborhood, but so close to everything the Parkway has to offer. Less than 10 minutes to Dollywood, and less than 4 minutes to the parkway. Great location for everything you want to do there. Room to spread out, cook in, have game night, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a quick weekend getaway for my husbands birthday. It was awesome. Loved the area, so easy to get to. The place was so clean, and well laid out. I will defiantly be looking into staying here again. Thanks for a stress free weekend. :)

enjoyed my stay

  • 4 of 5

the cabin overall was great....it was really clean and that was very important. It was also very cozy. Parking was a little never racking. There is virtually no room between where the car is parked and the road way itself. No cable or satellite either, only Netflix. So if you want to watch local channels, news, etc. that is a challenge.

This property is perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Cute cabin with ample space for everyone. Love how clean it was, and the proximity to the Parkway is wonderful! Quiet area so we could relax at end of the day after escaping the hustle and bustle of town. This definitely beat a hotel, and we plan on returning soon! Thank you for sharing this gem with us. We look forward to staying here again!

No TV and bed too high for older people

  • 3 of 5

There was no TV service. Maybe I didn't read the description well enough, but I don't think it said that when I booked the cabin. We had two young children who are used to going to bed with the TV on, so that did not go over well. They had wifi, and you could access Netflix, but I'm not much for watching the same programs over and over. The bed in the bedroom was extremely high and difficult to get into for two older folks such as ourselves!! My husband actually fell out of it the first night trying to get up during the night. The bed was comfortable once you could get into it! The couch was also extremely worn and very uncomfortable. Also, the floors were evidently not cleaned very well. We spilled some water when we arrived, and when I took a paper towel to wipe it up, the paper towel was black. Parking is on a slant, and made getting out of the car difficult. The upstairs shower door was difficult to open and close, and the kids wound up having to use the tub in the downstairs bathroom for their showers. You also have to haul off your own garbage if you fill up the can.

The only reason that I am giving it 3 stars is that the owner was very nice. We found that the coffee maker did not work, and the owner ordered a new one and had it delivered as quickly as she could. She also worked with me when we decided to add additional days before we arrived. Location is convenient to any activities and it was quiet. It does look directly into another cabin, which limits your privacy from the back porch which has no window coverings.

Owner's Response: Gloria...we strive to accommodate a lot of different preferences and families. I am sorry you felt the cabin was that lacking. Many of our other guests didn't share the same viewpoints as you, but we appreciate the feedback. In the mountains, we don't have much leeway with the parking. I apologize for that being beyond our control. The listing states that there is wifi and Netflix. Again, my apologies if any confusion. As far as the shower door, I wish you would have let me know so we could have had maintenance fix it. This was the first I have heard of it, and there have been others since your stay. We will look at it this week personally when we arrive. In the bedroom, there is a step stool for aiding in getting in and out of bed. We have never had anyone fall out of the bed. I'm not sure why this occurred. However, it is a king size four poster bed with box springs and a thick mattress for guests comfort. As far as the trash pick up and cleaning of floors, on the coffee table was the cleaners number. When stays go a week or more while staying in a cabin, it is customary to either have guest remove trash to local dump or to have guest contact cleaner. To my knowledge, no contact was made to maid or myself about this. I apologize for this, and again, first I heard this. Lastly, the back porch area is what most people love. They like the unobstructed views, and the cabin you mentioned, we are not able to look directly into? It sits above our grade level, and is a bit away. This is the first time anyone has ever not loved the back porch. Sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay. I'm not sure what to say. Again, most of our reviews are extremely positive, so I wish you the best in finding something more to your liking on your next visit to the area. Again, thank you for your feedback. Michelle
