“Perfect Getaway!”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2016

We had the pleasure of staying at Betty Jeans Joy and enjoyed every minute. The cabin is beautifully decorated, VERY VERY CLEAN, peaceful front and back porches and the location is perfect. The road to the cabin is paved, it is very curvy and narrow with two big hills, but parking was great. There's enough room for two to three cars on side and one car in front of house. The location of the cabin is perfect. You are very close to town but feel like you are in the woods. We were close enough we could go out in the mornings, come home to relax and then get back out in the evenings. From the cabin to the main highway (where Walmart is) it's literally less than five minutes. There are several cabins surrounding the cabin but Betty Jeans Joy is very private. In fact during our stay we never saw our neighbors, just their vehicles. We didn't cook in but the kitchen appeared to be stocked well. They provided plenty of linens and washer/dryer works perfectly. Upstairs is the master bedroom, it's so spacious and private. The bed is VERY comfortable! There's a porch off of the bedroom with a table and chairs which was perfect for watching the sunrise over the mountains. The view is very pretty! I enjoyed early mornings on the front porch swing, there are also two rocking chairs. The cleanliness, location and price of this cabin were perfect. Definitely worth the money! Also, the owner was so friendly and prompt with answering any of our questions. This is a cabin we will most certainly be visiting again!

Owner's reply: Thank you for being our guest at Betty Jeans Joy. Larry and I are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We strive for each of our guests to be glad they chose our cabin for their stay. We want our guests to feel at home and comfortable during their stay.

“Little piece of heaven”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2016

Place was just as its pictured, owners description is accurate . Place is clean, conveniently located, great view. If we ever vacation in the area would definitely stay here again. Only 2 things I'd change, additional outside seating such as the balcony off bedroom and by the hot tub. Would have liked to have Ben able to use of the bathtub in the bedroom

Owner's reply: We now have seating on the upstairs balcony and there is ample hot water for the Jacuzzi tub now also.

“At the top”

Reviewed 6 May 2016

Being a pet friendly cabin is good but there was no place to properly walk the dog because you are at the very top of a ridge. Our Boston needed much more green space than what's available. Very friendly owners and easy to work with.

Owner's reply: Please refer to the pictures posted because there is a yard and there is grass across from the cabin. The cabin is on the back side of the community which lends itself to better privacy. Access to the cabin is very manageable and the terrain is not steep for most visitors. Please use satellite street side views to get a better visual if you are in doubt.

“Weekend getaway with husband”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2016

This was a suprise Christmas present for my huband. Our first weekend getaway without our kids after being married 25yrs. Our first time renting a cabin and I think we hit the lottery. This is a wonderful cabin and a wonder location. The owners are wonderful and so easy to work with. Jackie even suggested area attractions to visit. Only issue we had was there was dead lady bugs in the floor where the cleaning crew didn't sweep well before we showed up and I had to sweep and the down stairs bathroom sink cold water faucet doesn't work. It has been turned off under the sink, so I burned my hands washing them. I let the owners know after we left from our mini vacation. She assured me this would be addressed and I feel sure it will. Me and my husband are wishing we were back there. This will be the cabin we rent. We loved it!!! Hope this is an annual trip. This is a lil piece of paradise. Thank you Jackie! Just hope next time it's for 4 days or longer. :)

Owner's reply: Regina, Thank you for choosing our cabin for your stay. Thank you for contacting me about your concerns about our cabin, Betty Jeans Joy. We have already gotten the faucet replaced, and the cleaning company has been contacted. My goal is to ensure my guests have an enjoyable experience during their stay. I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Blessings to you and your hubby. Jackie

“Close to everything”

Reviewed 1 Dec 2015

Such a nice cabin and a wonderful view. Easy to find and easy to get to. Great value. We would stay there again when we are in the area. Thanks for the peace and quiet.

Owner's reply: Donna, Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay for its convenience and view. Larry and I strive to make the cabin affordable so others can also enjoy the cabin. Happy Holidays. Jackie

“Best View on Mountain”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2015

The owner was easy to communicate with and responded quickly. The cabin was in the best location on the mountain and has a great view of the smokes. It is very close to everything we were interested in; from Knoxville, to the Great Smoky Mountains Park.

Owner's reply: Vicki, Thank you for you choosing our cabin for your stay. I appreciate your feedback regarding the cabin. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Best Regards, Jackie

“Anniversary Getaway”

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights here for our 10 year wedding anniversary. The cabin is gorgeous and conveniently located! We absolutely loved our stay here.

“Wonderful Weekend”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2015

We b0oked this cabin for 4 days. There was a mixup with the cleaning service, I called the owner and it was corrected immediately. It is a very cozy, quite, private cabin with lots of character. My family enjoyed the stay and we even got to bring our cherished dogs. We will for sure arrange to stay again.

Owner's reply: Christy, Thank you for your understanding regarding the miscommunication of the cleaning schedule. I am glad you had an enjoyable stay. Please contact me for your next stay. Because of guests as yourself, my husband and I can offer affordable prices for guest stay and can occasionally enjoy the cabin and the great smoky mountains as well. Blessings to your family. Jackie and Larry

Owner Supplied Testimonials

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."

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."
