We had a great stay here. The few minor issues we had were promptly addressed by the owner.
Great place to stay!! Loved it!!
Very easy and good communication
They cabin was beautiful just as in pictures completely clean very easy check in check out and nice quiet area very close to pigeon forge about 5 min ride and only about 15 minutes from gatlingsburg so perfect for checking out all attractions in both areas also has a book with tons of recommendations for things todo and places to eat so made it easy to plan a weeks worth of fun we will definitely consider visiting again and staying at families making memories once again of available
This cabin was perfect! Close to all attractions but still had amazing views!! Would recommend this place to anyone.
We had the opportunity of enjoying 1 of our sons and daughter-in-law (without the grandkids) and we all had such a wonderful time. The cabin had plenty of room, set up nicely and we really enjoyed the pool room. The location is excellent! Literally a stones throw away from everything! We definitely were a “Family Making Memories” this weekend and it was awesome!
Perfect cabin in a perfect location close to everything
We had a nice stay. The cabin was clean, nicely decorated and accommodated our family group of five adults and two children very well.
Cabin was located so it was easy to go in any direction. Excellent neighborhood. We were on motorcycles and it was centrally located to ride to the areas we wanted.
It was perfect for my friends and I!
We chose this general area because it is located right behind the Publix and Dollar General. We have small children and having quick access to those locations and circumventing all of the crazy traffic on the main drag is so helpful to getting to enjoy ourselves when inevitably we forgot something or had some emergency. This cabin is 4 minutes to both of those stores and then an easy jump across the main drag to Dollywood. This was a very nice neighborhood with other similar rental units.
This cabin was the perfect size & location for our wonderful family vacation
Our family had a great stay at this cabin. This was our first time taking our girls to the mountains. They thought the cabin was cozy and charming. Location is everything, and we were a 5-10 minute drive from all of the major Pigeon Forge attractions. We will definitely consider coming back to this cabin when we return to Pigeon Forge in the future.
We were in town for a funeral. We booked this property, last minute. I was so pleased with the accommodations and the location. I had forgotten my email of detailed check-in. So, when I emailed the owner, he got right back to me. Now, that is service.
We really enjoyed our stay
This was our second stay at the cabin Family Making Memories. We loved the cabin just as much as we did the first time. It's in a great location, very clean and has all the amenities you could possibly need. I would maybe suggest upgrading the T.V.'s in the bedrooms but that wouldn't deter me from staying at the cabin again.
We had a joyous time in this cabin love the location the cabin was spacious clean and close to all attractions
We had such a relaxing weekend!
We enjoyed our stay in this cabin. It was very clean and we had everything we needed during our 3-night stay (including laundry). The cabin has lots of space and ample seating in the living area (much nicer than being cooped up in a hotel room). There were plenty of extra towels, pillows, and blankets and the beds were quite comfortable. It's also very close to the grocery, drug store, LeConte Convention Center, the Old Mill, and plenty of other restaurants.
We really enjoyed Family Making Memories and the rental company. We had a perfect few days. We will return this fall.
Great location, perfect size. Enjoyed it very much. Good communication. Thank you!
We truly enjoyed our stay in this cozy, adorable cabin. It fit our family perfectly. Not too far from town or too high up the mountain. Love to stay again someday.
We enjoyed the house the hot tub was grest
We just spent three days at the cabin with my three sons all 12 and under. We had a great trip and a great time in the cabin during our stay. The cabin was just as advertised and everything was in good working condition and clean. I had excellent communications with owner / manager! No issues whatsoever.
We really enjoyed our stay in this cabin. It was very, VERY clean, had everything we needed including extra blankets for those that are cold-natured. A short drive from the Parkway, restaurants, Publix, Trolley Barn, etc. The beds were really comfortable. Craig Hubbell was a big help and we look forward to working with him again.
We enjoyed our stay,very nice cabin and convenient to all the attractions... Date of arrival
Very clean cabin that was close to Pigeon Forge. Perfect for a long weekend with friends.
Totally loved our cabin, “Family Making Memories.” It was the prefect size for our family and we enjoyed our stay over Christmas. Would like be to rent again.
We truly loved our stay at Families Making Memories cabin! Even had a little snow to put everyone in the Christmas mood with the cabin feel. Would love to come again.
Perfect for Hunting
This trip was for our annual girl's getaway. There were 6 adult women,1 infant, and 2 toddlers. Family Making Memories had plenty of sleeping room (including room to set up a pack-n-play for the baby), which was a must after those long days of walking and shopping the outlet mall in Pigeon Forge, and the unlimited shops and attractions in Gatlinburg. This cabin had everything we needed. The only thing we had to purchase was more toilet paper and paper towels. There were plenty of extra throw blankets/quilts for the beds to use on the cooler nights. I was pleasantly surprised with the convenience and location of the cabin to the Parkway, just a quick short ride. The leaves were gorgeous and the rest we had was much needed. The cabin is beautiful. We will definitely stay here again if our girl's trip involves us staying in the Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg areas. I have used the VRBO website many times for duck hunting trips for my husband and son in locations one would not think there were rentals available, girl's trips, and mother-daughter getaways. I cannot change my nickname information on here, and it says "Perfect for hunting", I used that nickname for a hunting trip the whole family went on. This is not an area one would be able to hunt in.
Tom and I enjoyed our time at Family Making Memories, it was nice and clean, it was close to the shopping malls, yet in a peaceful area. After a long day the grill on the deck and the hot tub made our evening special. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting some time away from home.
Enjoying the Good Life
My family and I enjoyed our stay at Family Making Memories, it was easy to find, clean, and had everything we needed to make a big breakfast. We like the fine furnishings in the cabin, and the grill on the deck was great, We used it a couple of times and it helped us save on the cost of eating out. The rental company was easy to work with; they gave us all the information we needed to make our vacation one to remember.
Mark & Rebecca and the kids
We enjoyed our stay again at Family Making Memories. Your new housekeeper is doing a bang up job and everything was much cleaner than our previous visit last year. This cabin is just perfect for our family. The location and overall accommodations are perfect. The phone call from Brittany to check on us is such a nice touch and appreciated. See you again next year.

During peak season, some properties may not be ready by 4:00 p.m., and your patience is appreciated. Lessor will use reasonable efforts to have the rental property ready for guest(s) occupancy at check-in time, but Lessor cannot guarantee the exact time of occupancy. The cleaning staff reserves the right to occupy the unit until it is clean and ready for your check-in. NO compensation of any type will be given to the guest(s), including but not limited to: cleaning delays for any reason including inclement weather conditions, excessive cleaning as a result of a previous guest(s) rental, rare or unforeseen circumstances. No early check-in is permitted. This agreement does not create a tenancy or residence. Guest must depart at the appropriate time.
Bring a flashlight to see the keyless entry system after dark. We try to leave a porch light on but this is not always the case.
CANCELLATION POLICY: We have a NO REFUND policy, including cancellation of an event you planned to attend or participate in during your stay, late arrivals and early departures for any reason do not warrant any refund. If you decide you need a larger or smaller or even a different cabin for ANY reason you will not be refunded ANY money. Your first payment is due at the time of reservation. This payment is applied to your total, and the second payment is due 60 days before your scheduled check in date. We do offer optional travel insurance for those guests that feel it necessary.
RESCHEDULING POLICY: We have a “no-rescheduling” policy. However, if it is absolutely necessary that you must change dates, we will allow it under the following circumstances. You must first cancel your original reservation and open up those dates for rebooking. We must then receive a new booking from a new guest for the same dates, at the same rate, as your original booking. If and when you rebook, the new arrival date must be within 6 months of the cancellation date. Rates do vary by season and holidays; therefore the rate may be higher for your new booking dates. Our software requires a payment even if we provide a coupon for a 100% credit. For example, if you originally booked 5 nights and change to 3 nights, we have a no refund situation, plus our software requires a payment. This payment may be as low as $5.00, or could be a larger amount, depending on the cost involved. There is an additional 10% up-charge (processing fee) on a new total before any coupon credit. Any rebooking is subject to prior bookings and availability of the same cabin.

LISTINGS, PHOTOS and PRICING: Information regarding this rental is believed to be accurate but cannot be guaranteed.

We will be happy to confirm all data and information contained herein or will be glad to answer any questions you may have prior to booking your reservation. Rental rates and fees are subject to change and subject to prior booking without notice, until Rent Cabins And Condos LLC has confirmed your reservation. You may view photos of our property on our website or advertising listings. Photographs are meant ONLY to give a general feel for the property; specific furnishings and décor items change from time to time and may vary from the photographs.
FURNISHINGS: Furnishings are subject to change without notice. Furniture, bedding, mattress pads, utensils or any other property supplied with the rental property must not be taken out or transferred from one property to another. Loss of these items, as well as damage to the property or furnishings in excess of normal wear will be charged to the guest(s).
HOT TUB: Hot tubs have been cleaned prior to your arrival. If there is any problem with the hot tub, contact us! DO NOT enter the hot tub if there are mechanical or electrical problems. There will be a $50.00 charge if guests require an additional cleaning of the hot tub during guests stay. For guests’ safety and health, each hot tub is drained, cleaned, disinfected, refilled, chemically treated, and tested following each stay. Bromine is used to maintain water quality. The floater (chemical dispenser) must remain in the hot tub at all times. Use of the hot tub is at guest(s) own risk. Prior to use, consult a physician if you have any questions or concerns regarding use of a hot tub. Pregnant women and women who may possibly be pregnant, and guest(s) with pre-existing health conditions, sensitive or allergies or susceptibilities to chemicals, high or low blood pressure, circulatory system problems, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, thyroid disease, multiple sclerosis, etc. or guest(s) consuming alcohol or taking medications which induce drowsiness, such as tranquilizers, anti-histamines or anti-coagulants should NOT use the hot tub. Please do not stand or place objects on top of the hot tub cover. If the hot tub cover is damaged, there will be a $500 charge to guest’s credit/debit card.
HOT TUB SAFTEY: Enter and Exit the hot tub slowly and carefully. The steps may become slippery when wet! Never use the hot tub during a thunderstorm! For your health, we follow the guidelines set by the US Consumer Products Safety Commission and the National Spa and Pool Institute for maintaining proper water temperature in our hot tubs. The water temperature should NOT exceed 104 degrees F (40 degrees Celsius) at any point in time. They cite that high water temperatures can cause drowsiness to occur that may lead to unconsciousness and drowning. The hot tub water will also raise your body temperature, and thus your blood pressure that may lead to heat stroke and death. A safe soaking time should NOT exceed 15 – 20 minutes. Prolonged usage can lead to rashes, a variety of heart related illnesses such as stroke, heart attack, nausea, heat stroke, brain damage and death. Some medical authorities have recommended a lower temperature of 100 – 102 degrees F maximum. Generally, 100 – 102 degrees seems to be accommodating to all bathers and is NOT considered a health risk for a healthy adult.
JACUZZI BATH TUB: Use of the Jacuzzi bathtub is at the guest(s) own risk. Never use the jetted tub in a thunderstorm! DO NOT turn on the jets to the tub until all of the jets are completely covered with water. Turning on the jets prior to them being fully covered with water will damage the motor. *Caution - When entering areas that are near water or moisture sources, the flooring in the region of the water may become slippery when wet or damp. This includes but is not limited to: showers, sinks, indoor jetted tubs, outdoor hot tubs, and pools. All guest(s) assume the risk of injury when entering these areas that contain a water or moisture source and will hold Rent Cabins And Condos LLC and property owner harmless with respect thereto.
FIREPLACE: The fireplace is seasonal and is non-operational from May 1st through October 1st. DO NOT use the fireplace unless the outside temperature is suitable for a fire. DO NOT set the heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system thermostat to COOL or leave the exterior doors or windows open while the fireplace is in use. The (HVAC) unit will continue to run and may “Freeze Up”, as the HVAC system thermostat will not be able to appropriately respond to the temperature inside the property. DO NOT attempt to alter the fireplace or fireplace timer in any manner or use during the OFF Season. A $100 charge will be made to the credit/debit card on file if the fireplace is used during the OFF Season. Gas fireplaces have a pilot light that stays on during the ON Season. Gas logs are NOT to be rearranged for any reason. The logs are designed to burn cleanly without emitting harmful carbon monoxide gas and need to be in a particular arrangement. Rearranging the logs can be very dangerous causing the fireplace not to burn cleanly and thus emit carbon monoxide gas. DO NOT throw or place any foreign items especially non-combustible or dangerous materials into the fireplace. DO NOT attempt to cook food!! DO NOT leave the fireplace turned on while unattended or if you leave the property. Lessor and/or owner assume NO responsibility for any potential liability or damages that are the result of guest(s) failure to abide by these policies. Guest(s) are responsible for any damages caused by use of the fireplace.
REFRIGERATOR AND REFRIGERATOR CONTROLS: When you enter the property, the refrigerator will be clean and empty. Icemakers will be emptied and turned off. Your personal food that may have warmed since the time you purchased it will cause the refrigerator to work very hard. It may take a while for the refrigerator to catch up. This process may take up to 12 – 24 hours. To help your items cool faster, minimize opening the refrigerator during the first few hours. Be patient. We recommend bringing a bag of ice to get a jump-start. DO NOT adjust the cooling setting any cooler than the factory recommended medium setting! Turning the settings cooler than medium can cause the refrigerator or freezer to overload, stop working or cause a defrost cycle to occur. It can take up to 24 hours for the refrigerator to recover once the defrost cycle has started.
THERMOSTAT: Some of our properties have a thermostat “LOCK OUT” feature. This feature is used to prevent the heat & air unit’s compressor from “freezing up” the coils in the summer due to turning the cooling setting below 65 degrees or use of the fireplace in warmer weather and then turning the air conditioning on. If the coils freeze up, this will leave the system unable to cool for up to 12 hours or more. DO NOT attempt to force the thermostat Above 75 degrees in the winter or Below 65 Degrees in the summer. It is “LOCKED OUT” at these temperatures and you will break the thermostat. If you break the thermostat, a $250 replacement fee will be charged to the credit/debit card on file. The thermostat must NOT be changed to the “ON” setting. It must remain on the “AUTO” setting at all times. *DO NOT run the air conditioner with exterior doors or windows open because the coils will “freeze up”!
SOFA SLEEPERS: Our sofa sleepers and futons are not designed for adults or much weight even if children are using them. Guest(s) agree not to leave sheets, blankets, or quilts on the sofa sleeper mattress or pillows between the mattress when folding up the sleeper sofa between uses or upon departure. The sofa sleeper mechanism will break due to the extra bulk in the unit.
AIR MATTRESSES: Air mattresses are NOT allowed under any circumstances. Don’t bring any with you.
WASHER/DRYER: A washer & dryer are provided so guest(s) may wash and freshen up their linens and towels as needed. Guest(s) agree to empty the lint trap in the dryer after each load of laundry dried.
WATER, SEWER & DRAINS; This cabin has city water & city sewer. DO NOT flush anything other than toilet paper. NO feminine products should be flushed at any time. If there is blockage after guest(s) departure and a plumber determines that foreign materials or feminine products were put into the toilet or drain, the guest(s) agree to a minimum of $200 charge to the credit/debit card on file. Guest(s) agree to leave all drains “free running” as they were upon arrival. Guest(s) agree that they will place all cooking grease, bagged, and in the outside garbage cans and will NOT pour any cooking grease down the kitchen sink, any other drain, or in the toilet. We recommend freezing any grease in a can before disposing.
LOCKED AREAS: Guest(s) agree NOT to tamper with or enter any locked area containing the owner’s personal effects. These areas are NOT included in the rental. If locked areas are found to be tampered with, guest(s) agree to pay for any damages, loss (missing items) and/or repair resulting from their entry of the locked area.
PEST & THE SMOKY MOUNTAIN ENVIROMENT: A licensed Pest Control company services this cabin on a regular basis, with precise and complete preventative treatments in an effort to keep all the pests and bugs outside. Ladybugs and Carpenter Bees are seasonal but common to the area. The National Forest Service disperses millions of Ladybugs each year. Guest(s) may find an “uninvited guest” in the form of one of Mother Nature’s small creatures. Guest(s) are staying in the heart of A National Forest/Wooded Mountain area. This does create certain challenges. We do appreciate our guest(s) understanding and hope you will enjoy the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains and all of “God’s creatures big and small.” Should you experience a MAJOR pest control issue, please contact us so we may attempt to eradicate the problem. We DO NOT guarantee that your cabin will be pest or creature free in the Smoky Mountains and we DO NOT offer refunds or discounts for these types of occurrences.
CRITTERS & WILDLIFE: There are a number of different animals and wildlife species you may encounter during your stay. It is imperative that you DO NOT feed any animals you come in contact with. Feeding the animals directly or by not securing your garbage cans will be very dangerous. No refunds will be given for raccoon or bear sightings. This is the mountains and the bears do live here. DO NOT leave garbage bags or food in containers or coolers on the open decks or the exterior of the cabin as raccoons, bears, stray dogs, stray cats, and other wildlife will snack on anything left outside! Please do your part by keeping windows and doors closed, all food inside, and garbage in the appropriate outside latched receptacles.
SYSTEM FAILURE: In case of failure of a system or amenity during your stay, including but not limited to, water, sewer, heating, air-conditioning, electrical, mechanical, ventilating, structural systems, major appliances, or entertainment equipment, we shall promptly repair them. You agree to permit access to the cabin to make repairs. We shall not be liable to you for damages, and NO REBATE OR REFUND will be given for such temporary failure, provided we are able to repair the system or amenity in a reasonable manner after having received notice from you that repairs are needed. ALL REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE ARE PERFORMED BY OUTSIDE CONTRACTORS. EMERGENCIES TAKE PRECEDENCE OVER NON-EMERGENCIES. IF REPAIR IS NEEDED, WE ARE AT THE MERCY OF THE SCHEDULE OF THE SERVICE TECHNICIAN. IF PARTS ARE NEEDED AND HAVE TO BE ORDERED, WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER DELIVERY SCHEDULES OR STORE HOURS.
AMENITIES OFFERED: Everything will be done to make sure what was offered in any advertising will be in the property as described. There may be times when the exact amenities are not in the property. Every attempt is made to keep the inventory as advertised. A difference in amenities does not entitle you to any refund of rents paid. Amenities may be added or removed at the owners’/manager’s discretion. Example: We may have advertised 8 DVD players; one may be out for service. That does not warrant any refund.
ACTS OF GOD: We shall not be liable for events beyond our control which interfere with your scheduled occupancy, including but not limited to, Acts of God, acts of governmental agencies, fire, strikes, war, tornado, ice storm, severe weather, inclement weather, loss of electricity, or loss of water. NO REBATE OR REFUND shall be given in these circumstances.
ERRORS/OMISSIONS: Double booking is extremely rare. We will be careful to avoid conflicts with reservations; however, if through error/omission, other tenants are occupying the rental unit or the unit is otherwise unavailable for any reason on the dates of the rental agreement, we will attempt to find a substitute accommodation of a similar quality/price range when the error is discovered. If there is no replacement property found or if you reject the replacement, a refund of rents and fees you paid shall be your sole remedy for any and all damages, liability or inconvenience arising out of the double booking. In no event will renter be permitted to demand removal of those occupying the rental unit.
