Welcome to Tanya's Cabin! Our family of 6 fell in love with the Great Smoky Mountains, and in 2020, we purchased this cozy retreat in Pigeon Forge to create lifelong memories and share them with others. Since then, we have expanded to Gulf Shores, AL and now our latest vacation home is in Asheville, NC!
Our aim is to offer you a home away from home where you can experience the beauty of the Smokies and bond with your loved ones. From stunning sunsets to thrilling adventures, there's something for everyone here. Come stay with us and embark on an unforgettable vacation filled with joy and relaxation. We can't wait to host you and help you create your own cherished memories.

The property you're interested in is also available on those platforms, but by booking through them, you might end up paying more. Booking direct will get you the lowest price, guaranteed!
