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. 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. 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. :)

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The cabin offered a great stay for our weekend . We traveled with 2 older kids and 2 babies. The older kids loved their private loft area and there was plenty of room in master for both babies and baby gear. Enjoyed the extra space on the porch and rocking chairs to rock the baby, and kids enjoyed the air hockey table! Very good value for the price , beats staying at a hotel with a large family! Owner was very kind and helpful .

Great location and easy to find!

Will return . :)

Wedding and Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We came for a niece's wedding on September 18th and had a great time. We don't get many vacations, so this was a two for one deal. Beautiful scenery and very nice people. Car show was the same weekend--a little BUSY...but enjoyed looking at all cars and trucks from way back when. It was nice to come home to our own little house instead of a motel/hotel room. Our first time renting a cabin..won't ever go back, if possible. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
