Nothing beats the soothing sounds of water, whether you are on the back deck drinking a cold glass of sweet tea with the babbling river creeping through the woods or sunk into the steaming, bubbly waters of the hot tub on the screened-in deck. Welcome to your peaceful getaway in Up the Creek, a cozy 3-bedroom cottage about 7 miles from downtown Pigeon Forge where you can enjoy the balance of semi-seclusion in the forests and convenience to the city.

*This cabin is not pet friendly. Please visit our pet-friendly properties page if you would like to bring a pet!

Indulge yourselves in Smoky Mountain living during a small family vacation or wedding party getaway with space for up to 6 guests to gather around the wood-burning fireplace or escape to the comfy atmosphere among the spacious bedrooms boasting homey furnishings and flatscreen TVs. Save money in between hearty meals in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg by using your chalet’s lovely fully loaded kitchen with every tool and appliance you need to prepare quick breakfasts, picnic lunches, and delicious dinners.

Make yourselves at home while watching movies on the large flatscreen TV in the living room, reading on the cushioned furniture on the screened-in deck, and uploading your pictures from The Island to social media using the chalet’s wireless high-speed internet. In between excursions to shop in quaint shops of The Old Mill District and incredible shows like Dolly Parton’s Stampede and Country Tonite Theater, throw dirty clothes in the chalet’s convenient washer and dryer or sink into a soothing bath in the large indoor jetted tub. Just a few miles from downtown Pigeon Forge, trips to and from hundreds of Smoky Mountain attractions are an easy, convenient drive. Up the Creek is your cozy chalet getaway with all the comforts of home and your perfect stay tucked away in the Smoky Mountains.

Living Room
A brand-new sectional (fall 2021) and a large flatscreen TV invite you to kick your shoes off, sink into the couch, and put your feet up for a relaxing afternoon of reading by the fire and watching movies at the end of each exciting day. Squeeze in an afternoon nap in the relaxing atmosphere of soft white surroundings and ski-lodge charm.

Gather around a warm fire burning in the gorgeous cobblestone fireplace to play games like charades or share drinks with friends while catching up and sharing your favorite moments from the day. Melt into the cozy reading chair by the fire after the kids have gone to bed and listen to your favorite podcast or answer a few work emails using the chalet’s high-speed internet.

Make your trip even more fun by cooking elaborate dinners and hearty breakfasts together in the charming fully loaded kitchen providing plenty of cooking and serving tools for meals. Pale wood cabinetry is complemented by white appliances, creating a soft, relaxing space to put together a picnic lunch for your trip to Cades Cove or prepare your signature dishes for a multi-course meal. Granite countertops coming in early 2022!

Brew hot cups of coffee to enjoy while seated around the deck dining set as the sounds of the babbling river and early songs of the birds drift through the crisp mountain air. Unlike stuffy hotel rooms, you have a full-size refrigerator to store leftovers from generously portioned meals at The Alamo and Corky’s BBQ and a microwave to reheat your tasty dishes for the perfect midday snack.

Dining Room
Light a fire and set the mood to your own alluring Smoky Mountain dining atmosphere in the open-concept dining room with two charming wood tables. Gather around the 4-chair set while the kids eat at their own table nearby for hearty homemade meals in between days of dining out at The Old Mill and Flapjack’s Pancake House.

Once forks are down and bellies are full, clear the table and load the dishwasher before settling back into your seats for an evening of your favorite board games from home, sharing laughter and making memories late into the night. In the mornings, enjoy coffee and freshly toasted English muffins as you discuss the plans for the day and map out your excursions in Cades Cove.

With 1 king, 1 queen, and 1 twin bunk, these spacious, homey bedrooms provide tranquil atmospheres to unwind and drift off to sleep after each exciting day in Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. In the master suite, you are treated to direct access to the back deck, perfect for stepping out and breathing in some fresh mountain first thing to start your day. Watch some late-night TV before drifting off in the king bedroom. Hardwood flooring, direct bathroom access, and soft bedside lighting in all 3 rooms lend you and other guests convenience and ambiance all while providing peaceful wooded views through the windows to wake up to each day.

Outdoor Amenities
Fall in love with Smoky Mountain living on the spacious deck of Up the Creek, where you will be serenaded by the babbling river and shaded by the lush mountain forestry. In the screened-in portion of the deck, sink into the soothing waters of the hot tub to unwind at the end of each day or begin your day off on the right foot.

Bite into juicy, fresh-off-the-grill burgers while seated at the deck’s dining set during a fun afternoon cookout at the chalet. Bring your favorite outdoor games to play on the large uncovered deck while sipping on crisp beers poured from your Smoky Mountain Brewery growler.
