Description of the Pigeon Forge vacation cabin rental
Relax and enjoy 'Our Hiking Hideaway', a 3 level duplex cabin located at Big Bear Lodge & Resort. As our guest, you’ll enjoy all the amenities of the resort including free WiFi, indoor and outdoor pools, game room, exercise room and conference room. Our cabin is private, yet conveniently located minutes away from Pigeon Forge attractions, restaurants and shopping. Drive 10 minutes further to experience Gatlinburg and the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Baxter the Bear resides in the upper loft, much to the delight of our guests. While you're staying with us, please help us complete the story of Baxter's journey to Our Hiking Hideaway. Each year, the guest with the best story will win a $25 gift certificate to apply to their next visit!

Like to hike? We love to hike in the Smokies. The guidebooks located in the armoire on the main level are provided for our guests wishing to experience the magnificence of the Smokies through hiking. The guides describe location, distance, level of difficulty, and highlights of all 900 miles of trails within the National Park boundary. Note: this could keep you VERY busy!

On the upstairs level, you’ll find:
a loft with love seat sleeper sofa,
Baxter the Bear (he's not fake),
master bedroom with king bed, 2 dressers and TV,

Our cabin is perfect for guests who want to be close to shopping, restaurants, and all of the Pigeon Forge attractions, but still feel a sense of privacy. We love to use it for our 'base camp' for hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains!

Family Vacation

July 21, 2014

We stayed in "Our Hiking Hideaway" with our daughter, son in law and 2 grandchildren. It was very easy to get to right off Wear's Valley road. The owners were very nice and answered all of our questions. The unit was very spacious. Would recommend this cabin to anyone. Enjoyed the fire works every night. You had to walk up to the large cross to be able to see them.

Good place to stay

July 23, 2013

This property is very close to the main strip in Pigeon Forge, which is great for the convenience factor. The property itself is well-maintained, and stocked well with blankets/pillows/ and general information about the area. The shower door upstairs was not in the track, so had to be careful getting in and out. If we were staying in Pigeon Forge, I would not hesitate to stay here again!

Owner's reply:

So glad you enjoyed the cabin - the location is a big seller! We'll take care of the shower door.

So glad you enjoyed the cabin (and the snow) and were able to relax!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We absolutely loved the cabin! Had a great time in the mountains other than getting a little bruised from tubing down the river. The cabin was beautiful and our kids loved the bottom level they basically had their own house down there. Thanks again and we will rent from you next time we visit the Smokeyâs!

This is a great rental. Cabin had plenty of room for our family. Location is near everything we wanted to do. Finishing our day at this relaxing retreat was a big plus on this vacation.

Lovely, very clean & great location!

This cabin was beuatiful and there was so much room. We will go back again!

Cabin is family friendly, more room than you could ever imagine in a 2 bedroom. Easily could sleep 8 people. The hot tub is perfect for relaxing after a long day of activities. Also, we loved not being in Gatlinburg. I have never been to Pigeon Forge before this trip and preferred Pigeon Forge location over the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg. There are so many family activities less than a 1/2 mile from the cabin but you can still drive 5 miles to Gatlinburg to ski or tube. I cannot say enough about the cabin and the wonderful owners.

We have found the perfect Pigeon Forge spot here at the "Hiking Hideaway". Kristin has been so helpful and this cabin is beautiful. The accomodations were perfect. We are already planning our next stay.

Just wanted to tell you we loved the cabin. I was afraid it was going to be too small for the 8 of us but it was perfect. It was so relaxing we just wanted to stay at the cabin but we did venture out some. Our youngest grandson loved Baxter the Bear. We hope to stay here again.

We had a blast. Our young one loved Baxter the Bear. Loved the fireplaces.

We loved staying at your cabin. Our boys enjoyed the lower level; it was their man cave. Perfect location as well; had the mountain feel but close enough to everything

We had the best vacation we could have imagined. We hiked to Rainbow Falls, saw a big black bear, went ziplining, bungie jumping and even braved the cold waters whitewater rafting. I have told all of my friends about this vacation. I will refer your cabin to everyone. I cannot thank you enough. The kids said it was the best vacation they have ever had. Better than Mexico and Florida! Thanks again!
