12 Incredible Pigeon Forge Cabins for Your Smoky Mountain Getaway

The Smoky Mountains get their name from the smoke-like mist that hovers above the mountain peaks. Pigeon Forge is named after the Little Pigeon River, which homing pigeons used as a migratory guide until their extinction over a century ago. Running through Pigeon Forge along the river, US Route 441, also known as the “Parkway”, serves as a migratory guide for tourists following it to Gatlinburg through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Home to attractions such as Dollywood and The Island, Pigeon Forge offers family fun, outdoor recreation, shopping and dining. For an authentic Smoky Mountain vacation, stay in a Pigeon Forge cabin. They are not as rustic as they look. With indoor pools, hot tubs, and theater and game rooms, Pigeon Forge cabins can actually be quite luxurious!

We took the liberty of spotting a few specially chosen Pigeon Forge cabins – all with stunning mountain views! Whether you’re looking for a lodge for a large group or a cozy getaway in the trees for two, we’ve got the place for you! Check out these great vacation rentals, ranked from most expensive to most affordable.
