American Charm - a Vacation Rental Cabin in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
During our fall visit to Pigeon Forge we stayed at a rental cabin called ‘American
Charm’. I found the listing through VRBO
(Vacation Rentals By Owner) and this cabin truly is managed by the owner. I like dealing directly with owners compared
to a management company.
American Charm Rental Cabin
After reading the description, looking at the photos and
checking out the comments from previous renters I had some questions for the
owner. Every time I asked a question he
We rented American Charm for several reasons:
It is Pet Friendly
The cost to rent this cabin was very reasonable compared
to others of the same size I checked out
Proximity to the Parkway and the action
Since we travel with our dog Pet Friendly is the number 1
priority. I had two other cabins in mind
but the cost of this one compared to the other two made American Charm an easy
In previous trips to Pigeon Forge we stayed 8 or so miles
off of the Parkway. For this trip we
wanted to be closer to the main drag and American Charm is just a short ride to
whatever shops or restaurants you need.
Since it was just my husband and I we really only needed
the main level which consists of a kitchen/dining area/living room – open
concept. There is a full bath and
bedroom plus a door to the back screened in deck with hot tub. There is a TV in the living room area as well
as the master bedroom.
Downstairs is another bedroom, full bath, entertainment
area with pool table, TV and door to another deck. This is a perfect set up for two couples each having some
privacy. I believe the sofa is a sleeper
sofa. There is a front porch with a
swing and chairs if you want to rest a while after a day of adventures.
Just a hop, skip and a jump from the cabin you will find
all kinds of restaurants but if you decided to cook up a meal on the grill at
the cabin there are lots of dishes and a dishwasher to make it easy for you.
I can only comment on the king bed on the main level and
I’ll tell you it was quite comfortable!
Water pressure for the shower was good.
The TV has cable so that took a little getting used to for us satellite
