Are you thinking about taking a trip to Dollywood? With the exciting rides and fun attractions, it’s tough to beat a visit to Dollywood and a great vacation with the family.

Plus, with the new Wildwood Grove expansion in 2019 there’s even more park to enjoy!

One of the best ways to experience the park and all the other local attractions is to rent cabins near Dollywood. But make sure you know what to look for.

Follow our guide and your trip will be a success!

It may seem like a no-brainer but you’ll want to think carefully when booking cabins near Dollywood. Different couples and families definitely want different things from their trip.

Plus, it’s often difficult to get a feel for a location just from photos. Some companies promise they are close to Dollywood when they are a good stretch away.

On the other hand, you may want to be further away from the action.

You and your companions may want a more secluded cabin.  By booking a secluded cabin in Pigeon Forge,  you’ll still only be a few miles from Dollywood, but you’ll have a more authentic mountain experience.

Sleeping Space

Take another look at the sleeping setup when booking a cabin near Dollywood.  Some companies make big promises about the sleeping space their cabins provide.

Make sure they aren’t factoring in shared beds or uncomfortable sleeping arrangements before you finalize your reservation.  At American Patriot Getaways, we offer a floor plan for every cabin we rent.  You’ll find it directly beneath the photo gallery.  This way, you’ll know exactly how many beds and sleeper sofas are in each cabin.

Your cabin should have plenty of accommodations for everyone in your group.  If everyone wants their own bed in your group, make sure they’ll get it!

There is only one time when it isn’t so much fun to get away from it all in the Smoky Mountains. That’s when you need help for your cabin.

If you select a remote location and there is a plumbing or electrical issue how fast can you expect a resolution? With all the private sites and rentals from owners, it’s important to understand who your local support will be.

Double check about property management and service support before you get there.  At American Patriot Getaways, we have housekeepers, maintenance people, and pest control on call for any issue that may come up during your trip.


Resort Pool

Just because you are booking cabins near Dollywood doesn’t mean you have to rough it. Depending on the needs of you and your vacation group you can find the perfect amenities with the right cabin.

If your trip is during the summer months make sure you keep an eye out for an outdoor pool. Many cabin properties have a shared outdoor pool in a resort setting.

What about a fireplace or a Jacuzzi for your trip? Have you thought about a fitness center access while you are away from home?

Make sure you make a list of all the amenities you and your family want while traveling. There are luxurious cabins near Dollywood that offer everything you desire.

There are also more rustic spots with local charm and a feeling of being one with nature. You can find whatever you are looking for in a cabin if you do some research.

Staying Connected

What about watching the big game or staying connected to work back home? We all know that time away doesn’t always mean a perfect break from the office.

All of our cabins are individually owned and will offer different internet packages and cable. Get your information as specific as possible.

Due to the remote access of the Smoky Mountains, you may have trouble with your data plan. Make sure your cabins near Dollywood have great internet access and WiFi if you need to stay in touch.

And ask about channels and televisions in the property. Vacation time means relaxing. Make sure you can unwind with your favorite shows or a movie in the evening.  Under the amenities of each cabin we offer, the section labeled “electronics” lists the cable or satellite package of a cabin.

Storage and Parking

You know how to pack for your trip to the Smoky Mountains. But make sure there is plenty of storage space for you and your companions once you get there.  Check the photos and floor plans of a cabin to make sure you have adequate space for all your belongings!

Maybe you’re on a girl’s trip to the Smoky Mountains.  You’re all driving separately.  Does the cabin have enough parking for everyone? Do you have to register your car at the resort?  Always double check to make sure no one has to pay a parking fee or fine.

Kitchen Facilities

Different cabins offer different kitchen equipment and supplies. Many visitors want to make sure they have all the appliances and kitchen tools they need for preparing meals on their trip.  All of American Patriot Getaways cabins have a fully equipped kitchen.  Contact our reservations department to see what your cabin needs before you leave home.

Room for Pets

Pet Friendly cabins

For some of us, it’s more important to have a comfortable trip for our pets than enough space for our crazy uncle to tag along.  If you’re planning on bringing your four-legged companion along, make sure pets are allowed at your cabin rental!

You don’t want to find out too late you can’t bring your fur baby. You may face extra cleaning fees or be unable to check in if you bring a pet to some properties.  It is always easy to find a pet-friendly Pigeon Forge cabin on our website.

If you bring a pet to Dollywood with you, please know only ADA Service dogs are permitted.  Even though they can be in the park, service dogs are not permitted on any attractions in Dollywood.

Does your dog need a little more companionship while you spend the day at a theme park? Check out Doggywood!  This kennel is on property at Dollywood and is open each day the park is open.


Take a look at the reviews from other travelers. If they weren’t happy– why not?

Using the benefits of digital tools to get plenty of information beforehand will make your trip a winner.
