Great Stay

Location is Great. Convenient to everything in or near Pigeon Forge. Loved staying at Betty Jean's Joy. Cabin is wonderful. Wildlife virtually right out the front door (turkeys, woodchucks). Will stay there again.

Beautiful cabin

Stayed here with my husband for our honeymoon and it was great. The new owners decorated beautifully and it was so cozy in there. We used the hot tub a couple times and that was clean. The arcade machine was a fun surprise. Large flat screen in the living room was a plus after a fun day out. The mattresses were stiff and you could feel the springs in them but I think I am just used to my bed. The bathrooms were both spacious and very clean. The water pressure in the showers wasn't great but it got the job done. Overall I would highly recommend this cabin to my friends and family. Not sure what the new owners are charging per night but if it's the same as the previous owners it's a great deal.

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Tara. We look forward to your return to Betty Jeans Joy.

Great stay!

Our family enjoyed our stay at Betty Jeans Joy during our 4 day stay. It's very convenient to down town pigeon forge - 5 minutes you're in the middle of all the wonderful places to go. Her cabin was nice, quiet and had beautiful views. We will definitely return and stay next time.

Home away from home

Jackie, I wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we've had this week. The cabin is gorgeous! The location couldn't have been better for the things that we wanted to do.👍👍 We stayed seven nights here at Betty Jean's Joy and took advantage of every moment. We spent 3 days at Dollywood, 2 days in Gatlinburg touring Ripley's Aquarium, riding the Sky Lift (we had pictures from 14 years ago on our 20th Anniversary), eating it Bubba Gump's, visiting Ripley's Moving Theater and Ripley's Odditorium and eating the best pizza ever at Slice Pizza Bakery, 1 day in Pigeon Forge touring shops and eating at The Mill, 1 day on the driving tour and ended up hiking (my kids still don't believe that I went hiking! Of course they love the fact that I took a plunge into the creek LOL), and stopped at Tanger Outlet on our way out of town. I say all of this to say, this cabin was in a central location for everything. Everything was just minutes away, yet as was said in an earlier review, it felt so far away. When we did not stay for the fireworks at Dollywood, we were able to enjoy them from the cabin every night at 9:30 PM. Jackie was so good to work with, despite my forgetfulness etc.. The price was much better than anything else I found. I used the Jacuzzi tub every day but one. Yes, the water heater only takes it up to the Jets, but the one time it was not quite high enough, I just invited my husband to join me 😊. We will definitely be back!

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Larry and I are so pleased that you and your hubby enjoyed your stay at Betty Jeans Joy! Sounds like you had a great vacation! Yeah!! That's what we like to hear!! Please come again!! Have a great summer!! Fall is also a great time to visit the Great Smoky Mountains.

Great Time

We had a great time .We have stayed in several cabins and this was the best.The personal touch makes a big difference when you can deal directly with the owners.Communication was great,and the cabin was too.We have found our second home. We enjoyed the scenery the most from this cabin, I have great pictures. We saw turtles, turkeys , fireworks every night an added attraction. we would recommend this cabin to all. We ate there more this time so we could enjoy it longer. Didn't see the cabin kitty though. thanks

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Larry and I are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Betty Jeans Joy is in a good location. By the way, we did not see the kitty either. I am thinking someone decided to carry it home with them. Looking forward to hearing from you again. Blessings to you and your family.

Betty Jean was a joy!!!!!

Everything was perfect at this cabin!!! The inside and out was perfect.. We loved the area close yet so far away.. Hot tub, grill, pool table, and porch swing were great to have, bed even very comfortable!! If I change anything it would be to put a few chairs up on the upstairs balcony.. But no complaints.. We will be back and refer any friends to this cabin!! We already have!!!! Jackie was also amazing and easily contacted.. Thank you sooo much!!!! Couldn't have selected a better place to stay. We loved it.....

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Thank you for choosing Betty Jeans Joy for your stay. We have been trying to find some seating for the upstairs balcony, just haven't found exactly what we want yet. Our target is to get them this summer. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come again!

Very nice

My wife and I stayed here for five days, and really enjoyed it. We loved the hot tub, the fireplace, and the ability to cook for ourselves! I also really enjoyed the pool table. The gas tank for the grill was empty, so we weren't able to use it, which was a big bummer. Steaks in an oven just aren't as good. And we couldn't use the jacuzzi inside either, since the hot water heater ran out long before it was full. But we still had the hot tub! All in all, we enjoyed ourselves.

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Thank you for renting our cabin, Betty Jeans Joy. In our contract, it states that the propane is not the owner's responsibility. Some cabins do not have gas grills, but charcoal instead. Our cabin is very well maintained, and is a very affordable price. I think that out-weighs the fact there is not enough hot water for the Jacuzzi tub. Larry and I have considered installing another hot water tank, but just do not feel enough people use the tub for the cost. You did get to use the hot tub.

perfect weekend getaway

What a perfect cabin! I took my boyfriend here for a surprise birthday getaway. He said it was perfect. It has the best of everything ; mountain views, city lights, close to town, and all the amenities you need. We really enjoyed the rare 60 degree temperature and sat on the front porch swing for hours.

Larry and I are happy that you enjoyed your stay at Betty Jeans Joy. Please come again.

Beautiful Cabin iin Perfect Location

We stayed at Betty Jean's Joy for a weekend in early December. The cabin is spacious yet cozy, nicely decorated, clean and in a peaceful mountain setting. The cabin has two decks with awesome views. The location offers easy access to Dollywood, shopping and other area attractions. The owner were very nice and accommodating in order to ensure your stay is enjoyable. We cannot wait to return to the cabin soon and hope to stay longer next time.

We are so glad that you chose our cabin for your visit to Pigeon Forge. We hope you and your family have a great new year! Please stay with is again.

Golf getaway

We recently stayed at Betty Jeans Joy it was wonderful, very private and relaxing. The cabin was warm and cozy, the outside hot tub was great to relax in after a day of golf and hiking in the Smokies. It was nice to meet Larry and Jackie both were great played golf with Larry had a great time. The cabin is so close to all the restaurants and Dollywood yet from the Cabin you would think you were miles away. The golf course at Seveirville is real good two 18 hole courses both good. Jackie and Larry thanks again for offering a great place to get away Bill and Mary

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Bill and Mary,
Thank you for choosing our cabin for your getaway in Pigeon Forge. We too enjoyed meeting you. Larry had a blast playing golf with you guys. He said it was fun to get "beat" (at golf) by such a sweet lady. Hope you can come and stay again. Happy Holidays.

Relaxing getaway

We found your cabin to be very conveniently located in a very quite location, with a wonderful mountain atmosphere. We stayed five nights and enjoyed every minute. We had turkeys two mornings right at the front door. I went out to sit in the swing and drink my coffee, one flew from the tree just right of the house where it had roosted. The cabin is lovely and just right for a couple to enjoy and relax. You were very nice to talk to, and easy to communicate with thru email. Our stay was enjoyable and look forward to using one of your cabins in the near future.

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much for choosing our cabin, Betty Jean's Joy, for your trip to the Smokies. I appreciate your feedback concerning our cabin. Hope you can come and stay again soon.

Lovely Cabin

This was a beautiful cabin. Nice location. Huge master suite with comfortable bed. Easy to avoid parkway traffic and take the bypass to the park. Close to Walmart. We'll be back! You have a little friendly lizard on the front porch:). Scared me to death,but we became friends. He'd just come out to lay in the sun.

19th Anniversary Trip

The cabin was great!! View was excellent!! Enjoyed the privacy. This is a GREAT getaway location. We enjoyed playing pool and also relaxing in the hot tub. The cabin was very unique and spacious with comfortable furniture. We also got to enjoy the view of the night lights of pigeon forge and the fireworks of Dollywood from our upstairs balcony. We had a great time and will definitely return.

Thank You Betty Jean's Joy....

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Betty Jean's Joy for a few nights. The cabin itself is very clean and maintained with everything one would need. For me, this was a personal journey as my mother who passed away in January 2012 has the same name, Betty Jean. As soon as I ran acoss this cabin, it was just a matter of time before I was going to check it out. I was not disappointed. It has many nice touches providing a wonderful "homey" feeling. The location is ideal for those wishing to stay close to the action yet far enough away to give that quiet, laid-back feeling I look forward to when visiting that area. Check it out ... you won't be dissapointed!

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind words about our cabin, Betty Jean's Joy. It means so much to us for our guests to have a meaningful and special stay at our cabin. Thank you for sharing your story with us. I am so glad that our cabin played a role in your healing process. Please come and stay again. It's guests like you who make it a privilege to have a "cabin in the Smokies."

We stayed at your cabin for our 10 year anniversary and it was everything we could have hoped for. We were close to everything that we wanted to enjoy in Tennessee. We traveled some while we were there to Chatanooga to the Aquarium and to Nashville for the Grand Ole Opry...we visited the Smoky Mountain national park and spent a day at Douglas lake. We made breakfast at the cabin and sometimes prepared food to take along...we were close to everything! We enjoyed watching turkeys in the font yard in the mornings, and enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings.You have everything needed in this cabin , and we thought it was perfect. Thank you so much Jackie for making it such a special anniversary!

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Wonderful! I am glad you and your husband had a great time! Thank you for choosing Betty Jean's Joy for your stay. It is a great little cabin. Hope you can come again. Have a great summer.

peaceful retreat

Spectacular views! We enjoyed views of the mountains and of the city all while in a quiet peaceful setting. We would highly recommend this to everyone. The cabin is very comfortable and more spacious than you think. My son, husband and I stayed 4 nights. I cooked breakfast and dinner there every day to stay away from down town traffic. Everything you needed was there to use. The hot tub was very relaxing after hiking in the mountains during the day. My bonus highlight was actually winning two games of pool! We really enjoyed ourselves at Betty Jeans Joy and will be spearing the word to others. Thank you so much tor sharing your cabin with us.

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Thank you for choosing our cabin, Betty Jean's Joy, for your stay. We stayed the previous week and also enjoyed the cabin. Please visit with us again. Return guests get free cleaning! Congrats on those 2 wins!!

A Perfect Place to Stay

This place was a perfect choice. We were very pleased and would highly recommend this cabin to anyone. My husband and I stayed for 4 nights. The cabin is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It has everything you could possibly need and the views were awesome. It is close to attractions, and shopping, yet still very secluded. The owners were very nice and accommodating. I am so pleased we were able to stay at their property. I was planning the next trip on the way home!!!

Owner's reply:


Larry and I always look forward to hearing from our guests regarding their stay. We are glad you enjoyed your experience. Thank you for being our guest at Betty Jean's Joy. Please visit again.

I can't say enough about this cabin. We rented it as a three night getaway and were totally blown away by it. It is bigger than it looks in the pictures but the perfect size for a couple. It was clean and well maintained and very cozy. It has every amenity you could possibly need and is a much better deal than a hotel, not to mention away from the strip and the hustle and bustle of town. A nice place to enjoy the view of the mountains and woods and can even see the strip at night. The hot tub is a nice relaxing place after a day of shopping or running around. The bedroom is HUGE! I can't say enough good things about this place. The owners were nice and easy to work with and everything went off without a hitch. My only complaint (and it is a very small one) is the addresses on the roads in the community need to be better marked. It took a couple attempts to find the right spot but was well worth it in the end. This cabin sits up on a ridge away from the others and was very, very peaceful. Just what we needed for a little getaway. I would definitely recommend it and would come back again. Thank you!!

Jackie Watts

Owner's reply:

Thank you for choosing our cabin for your stay! It was a pleasure talking with you via phone. I will see what I can do about the road markers. Thanks for taking time to write a review for us.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Rachael says:
"Restful vacation-- We loved the cabin! You have decorated it very nicely. The cabin is located close enough to town but far enough not to hear it. I think you must have the best view of all the cabins in that community. I have raved to family and friends about your cabin. Hopefully I can send some business your way. My only complaints are that we didn't stay long enough and Pigeon Forge has terrible traffic! Your cabin is at the top of my list of return destinations."

Brett H. says,
"My wife and I recently returned from this wonderful property near Pigeon Forge, TN. Jackie (the property owner) was very friendly, communicative and gave us some great one-on-one attention, even though we planned this trip sporadically and very last-minute! Clean, surprisingly spacious, and located near the heart of downtown Pigeon Forge, Betty Jean's Joy cabin is the perfect no-hassle destination for someone wanting to get away, yet be close to everything at the same time. We arrived late on Friday night, so we didn't have a chance to see all of the mountain views; however, when we woke up, we were perched high atop a hill overlooking some of the most amazing long-range views in all directions. We were worried that the cabin wasn't going to be "remote" enough for our liking, but we immediately changed our minds - the cabin backs to the woods and the neighboring cabins aren't really nearby at all. We almost felt like we were completely alone in our little paradise, but we had many welcome guests - we were greeted on Saturday night by roosting turkeys in trees (literally, 20 ft. away from the cabin, and we were less than 3 minutes from everything in downtown!) We absolutely loved everything about this cabin, and we'll be returning someday in the near future."
" We've rented in the smokies before, but we haven't found a "go-to" cabin yet. We've both agreed that Betty Jean's Joy will be our official "go-to" for future trips. Thanks so much."
