Fantastic Cabin Experience in the Smokies

by Damaris Mojica

Our recent stay at a cabin nestled between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg was nothing short of spectacular. The location couldn\'t have been more ideal, offering a perfect balance between the bustling attractions of Pigeon Forge and the quaint charm of Gatlinburg, with each just 10 minutes away. One of the highlights of our stay was the incredible wildlife encounters. We were fortunate enough to spot bears right outside our cabin not once, but twice during our week-long visit. It was a thrilling and unforgettable experience that truly brought us closer to nature. The cabin itself was charming and comfortable, with a delightful wrap-around deck that quickly became our favorite spot. We enjoyed several meals outdoors, surrounded by the serene beauty of the Smoky Mountains. Overall, our stay exceeded all expectations. The combination of a fantastic location, breathtaking wildlife sightings, and cozy accommodations made this trip one for the books. We can\'t wait to return to this cabin in the Smokies for another unforgettable getaway.

Perfect cabin for families.

by Daylin Dawson
We stayed here for 5 days and had the best time. We have 3 children and this cabin had everything we needed to make our stay memorable and enjoyable. The layout of the cabin is great. Felt spacious. The kids absolutely loved the little stream next to the cabin. They played there for hours and even got to see a salamander. The wrap around porch is a nice feature. It was a little cold for us, but I can see it being a perfect spot for lunch and dinner in the summer time. The location is great. It’s central to Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge. Close to the National Park entrances. Hot tub was perfect for evenings when we just wanted to relax. Would definitely recommend this cabin and look forward to booking here again.

This is my 4th year booking with American Patriot Getaways and I have always had a great experience. The only thing I need to mention is that the toilet seat in the upstairs bathroom was broken when we arrived and the checkout code was not on the refriger ator so I had to call guest services in order to check out.

This cabin was perfect for our family vacation. The cabin was clean and well stocked with kitchen ware. The cabin was hidden/ tucked into the side of the mountain where most cabins in the area were on top of one another with no privacy. The company was ver y easy to communicate with and the check in/out process was flawless.

The best cabin we stayed in so far loved the location and private driveway along with the always shaded porches.

An amazing and relaxing place to spend a whole week, it has all the amenities you want in a home. The cabin is in a perfect location right between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, that was excellent, we avoided lots of traffic. The cabin had lots of privacy, with a long flat driveway perfect for parking 1, 2 and even 3 cars. Relax in the hot tub outside next to a beautiful lush green hill. Don't think twice you will love the stay here!

Hidden Joy was amazing. It had to be the most equipped cabin we have ever stayed in. We did have a minor problem with water coming from our kitchen spray hose. We called the office and maintenance was out the next day (it was not an emergency). Cleanl iness? All you can say is Wow! I fully recommend Patriot and I fully recommend this cabin as it is tucked away back off the road and quiet as can be. Thank you Patriot!

Loved the cabin! Great location very clean. bedroom tv didn?t work well but it wasn?t a big deal. Very peaceful and lots of cooking utensils and great WiFi. Everything was perfect! This will be our annual trip and hopefully same cabin. Could use softer pillows but we should have brought our own so no biggie. Overall we loved it and plan on returning in the near future.

The only thing I wasn?t 100 satisfied with is the mattress on the bed was too firm for my liking. Overall it was an awesome place and I would definitely recommend it to someone. It was clean and very cozy. I hope to stay here again one day.

My significant other I stayed for our 20 year anniversary and we absolutely LOVED this property! Everything was absolutely perfect and we can't wait to book our next trip at this location! The hot tub and pool table were amazing, the location was perfe secluded and so peaceful! We loved how there was comfy furniture on each deck for seating and we had everything we needed to cook and clean while we were there. The only disappointment about the stay was having to leave! Thanks for the most amazing experi ence we will be back for sure!

We were absolutely amazed at what a beautiful cabin it is! We were there for a family reunion and a lot of family members rented other cabins. Theirs were beautiful as well but overall we had best cabin and no steep driveway....what a bonus that was! We en joyed sitting on the upper deck for hours at night enjoying the peace and quite and watching Mother fox going out to get her babies some food. The only downside we had was first thing Monday morning they were drilling at the end of the driveway...very loud . Although it being loud if we weren't there for the family reunion I believe we would have been so happy just staying in the cabin and not go anywhere for the entire week! We will definitely stay in this cabin again if we are ever in the area again!

We loved everything about this experience. We hope to book this property again. We have stayed at a different property through a different agency and had the exact opposite experience. There were problems everywhere, including muddy water in the Jacuzzi tub, dirty sheets, "not-nice" people----and nothing got addressed, fixed, and no offer of refund. So you all have restored our faith in coming to the Smokies for our getaways. Thank you so very much!!
