Hello one and all,

Planning a vacation for the month of July and the Wifey and kids have told me “We’re going back to the mountains! !” Smokey Mountains , that is.

This will be our fourth trip to your fine state, and needless to say, I’m not at all disappointed that we’re heading back. We’ve ALWAYS had a fun time.

Three adults and two older teenagers on this trip. In the past we’ve stayed at a condo in Pigeon Forge. But . . . . this time Wifey said “let’s check out a cabin – in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area”. Daughter says “it must have a pool ! “

So . . . can anyone offer any advise on a cabin in this area ? ? Any place we should avoid ? ?

Other suggestions greatly appreciated .

Thanks ! !

We stay at http://www.twinmountaincabins.com/WebDocs/Cabin.htm

Very nice, they have a pool down by the office and the cabins are up on the mountain behind. Very private and peaceful, yet only a mile or so off the parkway. Be sure to stop in at the new Bass Pro and also Smokey Mountain Knife Works.

We go down about every other month for a long weekend (in fact, going back the first wknd in may) so if there's anything else you need to know, just let me know.

Funny you posted this...we are going this weekend. Here are a couple (ok three) links for cabins:

If you can wait a couple weeks, I can give you a report on the cabin we will be renting.
