A New Bird’s-Eye View In Pigeon Forge

Visitors to Pigeon Forge will have a new way of getting great views of the Smoky Mountains this year thanks to a brand-new attraction. The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, a huge Ferris Wheel ride, will be carrying passengers as high as 200 feet into the air in 42 enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas.

Located at The Island development near Belz Factory Outlet World, the attraction is just one component of what will ultimately be a full retail-entertainment-dining-lodging complex.

Also new in Pigeon Forge this summer will be RiverRush, Tennessee’s first water coaster, which will open in May at Dollywood’s Splash Country. With all the climbs, drops, twists and turns of a traditional roller coaster, the 1,175-foot-long ride climbs as high as four stories tall and includes hairpin turns and dark tunnels.

Cabin Of The Week – Southern Nights

Sometimes, a huge cabin is what you need on a Smoky Mountain getaway. But sometimes, the situation may call for the exact opposite, especially if a honeymoon or romantic weekend for two is part of your travel plan. If so, then Southern Nights may be just what the love doctor ordered.

This one-bedroom log home is in the Happy Hollow area of Wears Valley and is blessed with a secluded location and beautiful wooded views. Inside, you’ll find two fireplaces and a heart-shaped whirlpool tub, while outside is a hot tub on the deck for warm-water relaxation in virtually any season.

And as is the case with all our rentals, this cabin comes with all the necessities like a kitchen with appliances, dishes and utensils; bed linens and towels and all the bathroom and household supplies you’ll need to get through your stay.
