There's nothing better on vacation than feeling like you're away from the world. Yet at Wilderness Retreat, you're only 2.5 miles from the Parkway in Pigeon Forge. From there, make a right turn and you're only 5 miles from Gatlinburg or the By-Pass that takes you straight into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You'll love the easy access to the cabin--park right next to it and walk right in. Three levels of living give everyone their space and privacy. The main level offers a kitchen, dining area and living room plus a half bath. Downstairs are the two master suites with plenty of room to relax. Plus each floor has a deck with access to the view. In the winter, the view is better when the leaves are off the trees but in the summer, you'll feel like you're in a treehouse. You can see the mountains in the distance through the trees, too. There's a dining table and chairs on the top deck. Swing for two on the middle deck. And a newer hot tub on the lower deck. Wifi is available through a Verizon Mifi Hot Spot. It's not good for streaming YouTube videos or watching Netflix because bandwidth is limited to 2GB per rental. But it's perfect for checking emails and doing some surfing. On the main floor, there are two leather recliners so you don't have to fight for the favorite seat in the cabin. The sleeper sofa folds out to a queen bed. The gas fireplace is turned on from October 1 to March 31. And there's a TV on every floor--32" flat screens in each bedroom and a large 50-something inch TV over the fireplace. Dish Network satellite TV service. Turn off the outside world for a little Wilderness Retreat.

We stayed here for an impromptu long weekend. The cabin was clean, comfortable and convenient to everything while still feeling secluded. Amy at Blue Mist was very easy to work with, and the welcoming basket at the cabin was a nice touch. We will return, if not to this exact cabin it will be to another Blue Mist property.
Amy, Property Mgr provided great communication! Be sure to book this cabin with its' easy direct entry into the cabin, mountain views and convenient Pigeon Forge location. Two masters suites, each on its' private level with secluded deck. Very relaxing hot tub with direct access door so no distraction to the other couple. You will "feel" out in the country, tucked away, but convenient location to town.
The kiltchen has all the cookware you need. The only downside is the wi -fi isn't great, but I came for relaxation so that didn't bother me. The view is beautiful. It has lots of tv's and a security camera. The hot tub was very nice. I highly recommend this cabin.
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cabin. The cabin was clean & the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook with. The only problem I had was the internet service being very slow but being in the mountains you can expect that. We would stay here again.
We enjoy coming to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area. This is our first time staying with Amy though. Amy is one of the best in the area to help with your getaway needs. She was pretty fast to respond and it was very convenient. The pricing was not to bad either for a long holiday weekend. I loved the no hassle check in and out. Loved that I didn't have to carry a bunch of paper around to remember the key code to get back into cabin after a long day. The key code was actually a number I knew by memory from our own personal information. The information she sends after confirmation was also pretty helpful to someone who visits frequently. It is amazing how much you think you have done in the area to find out it is just probably the tip of the ice. This was a roomy cute clean cabin. We had plenty of room with the grandkids and us. There was a total of five us. The only thing I didn't like was the stairs and that was I probably didn't read that there was stairs. They are not bad stairs it is I just don't like stairs. (I am getting older) The bedrooms were nice and they each had their own bathroom. The way the bedrooms setup, there was a since of privacy. Plenty of level parking. The roads to the cabin are not that bad to go up either compared to some in the area. Spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying all of natures sounds and beauty. It is situated not to far from the parkway in Pigeon Forge and it is situated where you can come right down and head to Gatlinburg. Love the area and enjoy all the beautiful scenery. Always, make a trip to Cades Cove and the beautiful National Park. We took the kids to Dollywood and to one of Dolly's dinner shows. There is a lot of things to do that cost and a lot of things to do that is inexpensive. I think there is bear in this area as I could hear something that sounded like it. I would definitely stay at this cabin again and I would definitely utilize Amy for all your getaway needs. Thanks Amy!!! We had a blast.
