Wonderful Stay As Before

We stayed at Smoky Mountain Splendor for the second time and it will not be our last. We were there in Late October of 2019. All the pictures you see are current, the location is quiet and great for couples or a family vacation. Sitting on the covered wrap around deck and watching and listening to the rain shower was even pleasant. Don't take chances with rental companies who work 9 to 5. Been there done that. If any issues come up Mary Beth makes herself and her support staff available to your needs 24/7.

We are honored that you enjoy our cabin enough to come back every year. We too love the location. It is so quiet. Yet, so close to all the action of the Pigeon Forge Parkway. We look forward to working with you again on your next Smoky Mountain Couples Getaway.
Nina's review


Wonderful Cabin

Just got home from staying in this cabin. We have been going to TN for years and this is by far one of the best cabins we've stayed in. Quiet and roomy!! Will stay again. Close to the parkway, too.

Mary Beth Schaefer's Reply:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. It is always nice to hear that our guests have been coming to the Smoky Mountains for years and our cabin is rated one of their best. We too love the location. It is just far enough away from everything to give you the feeling of being far off in the country yet you can be anywhere in a very short period of time. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

Wonderful cabin!

From the moment we started planning , we were so excited to get to see our cabin to start our vacation! It was everything we thought it would be! The views are spectacular! Communication with the owner was good, and if we ever are back, this the cabin we would rent

Vicki's review


Beautiful view and a Gorgeous cabin!

Wow I just wanted to hang out on the beautiful porch and take in the amazing view. The cabin is totally fabulous. Only 4 miles from the main road so the location was great. I truly didn’t want to leave. Can’t wait to go back!

Perfect for Family Vacation - Great Views, Nicely located to attractions but away from tourists

We stayed at the Smoky Mountain Splendor from June 24-29, 2018. This was a great time of the year to visit the area as it wasn't too hot yet! The house is tucked away in a nice little area of other cabins (some privately owned and some other vacation rentals). Each has a nice size lot and privacy, we were pleasantly surprised to have such a great view from the main deck and hot tub, and never felt crowded by other cabins like some of the other areas in town. 

My husband and I found that the home was designed well for our family with three sons, ages 16, 14, and 9. The upstairs loft had a full bed with a full bath and a game room. The main level had a nice size kitchen, family area and opens to the massive deck overlooking the Smokies. The main level also has a master bedroom and bath. The basement is HUGE and is really the true master sweet, and also has a sofa sleeper. There was also a washer/dryer on this level.

We found this area to be a great combination of getting back to nature and proximity to area attractions/restaurants. We were there four full days (Monday-Thursday) and enjoyed hikes and drives in Smoky Mountain National Park. We found the weekday schedule to be great and less crowded than the weekends here. If you can leave the cabin by 8 a.m., it is an easy drive to hikes or scenic drives, and you will find better parking/less lines. We also did tubing at the River Rat in Townsend one day. Ripley's Aquarium was a true surprise and one of the best aquariums I've been to in the nation. We hit it at dinner time one evening for less crowds.

Highly recommend this property and the owner was very gracious and easy to communicate with! We stay some place different around the country each year, and this has been one of our best vacation rental experiences.

Angie's review


This house was truly wonderful.

Beautifully furnished with much fine detail in each room.  You didn’t want for anything.

The views were magnificent, it was very quiet and tranquil - very therapeutic!  Arrival was seamless and we were given

great directions so didn’t get lost once.  Roads to the property are not at all scary!


We only had a short visit but managed to visit Gatlinburg, go on beautiful mountain walks and even horse ride!

We definitely stayed in the right area for us as we found the main road in Gatlinburg to be quite commercialised,

but loved everything else.



There were nice restaurants in our area of Pigeon Forge, one being the Old Mill, which served great food and very

reasonably priced. 


We looked for months for a house that would suit our needs i.e. individual with high quality furnishings and this house

did not disappoint.  Loved the fire place in the living room and our bedroom!  Loved the outside deck.  Loved the ‘cinema room’ -

loved everything!


We would definitely recommend this house to anyone and would return without question.


Thanks for giving us such a great experience!



Monica's review


The cabin was just as it appeared it the photos. Great cabin!

Our stay was wonderful! Great location and great directions to the cabin. We’ve been deceived several times by photos on VRBO, but not this time. We look forward to staying here again.

Ginger's review


Christmas 2017

Beautiful cabin!! Clean and roomy!! Excellent kitchen, very well stocked with cooking supplies!!

Tootie's review


Best rental in the area

Beautiful inside and out! Spotless with every thing you could need. Owners are super helpful and so easy to deal with. I will never stay in another cabin in the area if this one is available. Close to everything but still feels very private. Rent this cabin you won't regret it, perfect in every way!

Stayed in Smoky Mt. Splendor in October 2017 and the 4 of us had an amazing stay. It is exactly as pictured. The two huge Master Suites are like having two homes in one. We will be back in October 2019. Would not consider staying any where else. Stop looking and call Mary Beth, she is super.
