We rented through Outrageous Cabins using their last minute special for $89/nt. We rented An Unforgettable View and the cabin was amazing!!! The view was just okay as this cabin is one of the first ones you come to going up the mountain so you're not that high up, but it's also one of the very few cabins that stands by itself with no other cabin on either side. We gladly traded a less majestic view for the totally privacy (the view was still beautiful just not as breath-taking as some of the higher up cabins have). There are three cabins perched on the side of the mountain up above this cabin, but you would never know it from inside the cabin or out on either of the decks. (By the way, almost all of the other cabins have cabins above or below them or both, as well as cabins on either side.)
The hot tub on the second lever deck was awesome and faced the view of trees and other mountains in the distance. The king size bed in the upstairs loft area was also very comfortable. Be aware though that the entire upstairs area is open with no division between the pool table/air hockey table/video game console area and the bed. There is also a large heart shaped jacuzzi tub in the bathroom but we never used it since we had the four person hot tub just steps away. Downstairs the other bedroom and bathroom are private and separated from the living/dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is much smaller than it appears online and is immediately in front of you as you walk in the door, but it does have almost everything you need. One thing that was missing was a cutting board, but otherwise it is well equipped. There are two grills outside, and we had intended to cook out, but after looking at them, we decided against it. The one looked very old and dilapitated. I ended up cooking in the kitchen which was actually more enjoyable as the other grill was down by the parking area around the back side of the cabin. Speaking of parking, there is plenty of it with a very large pad area behind the cabin.
We did not have any problems using the TV or Internet. We brought a laptop but never even unpacked it as we had no problems accessing the internet from the cabin's computer. There is a DVD player that plays the radio outside on the deck (great when you are in the hot tub), but did have a hard time getting it to play inside the cabin. Eventually figured it out, but it was a little tricky.
If you book last minute at $89/night, this place is a steal! Even at the regular price, it's a good value. This cabin was immaculate and well taken care of. The guys in the rental office were very helpful, had everything ready, and had us on our way to our cabin in less than five minutes. This cabin is also only about five minutes from the "strip" in Pigeon Forge but also far enough away that it could feel non-existent if you're not interested in the touristy stuff. Also, about 20 minutes away, the Foxfire Zip Line place is AWESOME. The have 7 zips, great guides, and are extremely safety conscious (sp?).
Dollywood Cabins and Sugar Maple Cabins also have cabins in this resort, but Outrageous Cabins seemed to have the best pricing even before the $89/nt last minute special. Also, they do not have any hidden fees or surprises - what they quote you is what you are charged.
We would highly recommend Outrageous Cabins and can't wait to go back again. This trip was a romantic getaway, but we would love to come back with our kids too.
