My husband and I had a wonderful time! First vacation we had in over 10yrs without our kids. We loved that it was peaceful and quiet. The cabin was nice and very clean. The fact that Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge was close to the cabin in either direction is a very big plus! Definitely will be coming back!

We had an excellent stay!! Cabin is located in a perfect proximity to everything you would leave to do. The amount of fireflies you see off the front porch is unreal and so beautiful at night.

A wonderful private getaway that provides the true sound of nature (river). If this place ever went up for sale I’d buy it in a heartbeat !

We really enjoyed the pool table, hot tub and the fact that it’s right on the river. There were a pair of geese that obviously lived in the back and had a precious nest of eggs. We did not use the appliances but they did look functional. The washer and dryer listed on the site was a mistake but they were quick to fix the mixup. The cabin is on the lower end of the mountain which was perfect for quick travel to the restaurants and attractions. Such a fun and quaint retreat for a couple! Would definitely come back!

My wife & myself had the most enjoyable vacation & this cabin was everything we were looking for , seclusion & roomy land , rushing river was the only noise ! Over 15 years of cabin vacationing in the Smoky mountain area this was our favorite ! 15-20 minutes from either city but nice country setting! Minutes from the Ramsey Cascades hike . Awesome cabin for 2 -4 people .

We loved the cabin, we’ll definitely try to get back in the future. The cabin is awesome, with lots of river frontage. The valley it’s located in is very scenic, with lots of elbow room between you and your nearest neighbor. We had a great time!

We fell in love with this cabin! It was everything we were looking for in our stay. It is secluded, located right on the Little Pigeon River, and surrounded by beautiful landscapes and wildlife. Each morning from the front porch, we watched a doe and her fawn play and each evening we watched the fire flies light up the dark sky. It was such a peaceful and relaxing getaway! The cabin was extremely clean and very well cared for. It was fully furnished and very comfortable. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a peaceful, secluded getaway.

Beautiful little cabin for two. Nice clean cabin with a lot to offer. One of my favorite things to do was have my coffee near the river every morning. The view of the night sky was breathtaking. We will be back for sure!

The folks at Colonial were first class . The cabin was exceptional and the River and hills were spectacular. My wife and I really needed to decompress. This was the perfect prescription. We will certainly be. Repeat customer.
