I wanted to submit a separate review for our cabin then our trip report to make it easier for people who are interested in this cabin. We stayed at Thistle Britches from 4/11 – 4/16 and found it just wonderful. This cabin is not through a resort or property management company. The owner Jamie was prompt with all e-mails and answered and phone calls we had leading up to the stay and during the stay. He was great and very friendly and we found working with him very easy.
Thistle Britches is located just across from the Dollywood Parking lot so it is very convenient to Dollywood and all activities in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. It is on its own land and the views were just spectacular. One thing that we liked is that it did have a yard and that we had views, but were not hanging off of a cliff. That was really nice since we brought our dog, but it would be nice for small children also, just a little piece of mind. The cabin was immaculate and so was the hot tub. The furnishings were very nice and the whole cabin was cozy and well decorated. It has a firepit with wood, but due to the weather we never used it, but we had hoped to originally. Basically it looked just like the pictures which is something you always hope for. The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything we needed for cooking. We did have older kids and loved having so much space. We would stay there again in a second.
