This property is no longer on our program


When life gets busy and you want to reconnect and rejuvenate, slip away to Restores My Soul, located in the Beside the Still Waters community. The charming 1-bedroom, studio-style cabin exudes Smoky Mountain charm, with wood interiors, a stream-side location, and a peaceful wooded setting.

A cozy 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom cabin for 4 in the Beside the Still Waters community, Restores My Soul is a retreat for the senses. Peacefully situated among the trees, it boasts an inviting queen bed, a charming fully equipped kitchen, a bench looking out at the trees in a lovely little yard, a cozy living room with a fireplace, and a picnic table for peaceful outdoor meals.

Inside and out, it’s a comfortable, relaxing place to slow down and enjoy life for a bit. Treat yourself to soothing soaks in the outdoor hot tub, climb into bed early and watch the big screen TV in bed, spend mornings sipping coffee among the quiet of the trees, grab some marshmallows and chat around the community fire pit at night, or explore the nearby hiking trails in the area.

Restores My Soul is also less than 10 miles from downtown Pigeon Forge and downtown Gatlinburg, so you’ll have easy access to family-friendly attractions, local wineries and moonshine distilleries, restaurants, fudge shops, dinner shows, and so much more. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re planning a romantic honeymoon, a fun week with the family, or a peaceful, rejuvenating weekend for yourself.

Living Room
Cozy up in the living room of Restores My Soul, furnished with a sofa, wingback chair, leather chair, and coffee table. As you relax, flip on the big screen TV to watch ball games, movies, or your favorite TV shows. You can even bring along your favorite movies to pop into the Blu-ray player. On cool Smoky Mountain nights, keep the room cozy with the gas fireplace. And if the kids have come along or you have another guest, take advantage of the queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room.

One amenity you won’t find in a hotel room is a fully equipped kitchen. Restores My Soul offers a full kitchen where you can create homemade meals, whip up snacks, make drinks, or just store leftovers after dinner downtown. The kitchen has a refrigerator, dishwasher, stove/oven, and microwave to make meal making easy. You’ll also have a coffeemaker and toaster, along with utensils, glassware, and dishes for 4.

After you make your meal, sit down at the table for 2 in the living room, or take your plate to the picnic table in the yard to have a peaceful meal at the picnic table. If you’re not up for cooking, you can order a gift basket with snacks and picnic lunch foods from Pigeon Forge, TN Cabins or get some takeout from a restaurant downtown and bring it back to enjoy in the cabin.

Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have plenty to choose from, ranging from fine dining to casual eats. You can get steak, seafood, Italian, Mexican, burgers, German, Japanese, pizza, and more! And you can finish it off with a huge variety of desserts, from funnel cakes, ice cream, and creamy fudge to old-time candies, fresh apple pies, and donuts.

The studio-style bedroom in Restores My Soul features a queen-size bed with simple, stylish bedding, built-in shelves, nightstands, and wall-mounted lights. It’s a cozy little space where you can catch up on the rest you’ve been seeking. A leather bench at the end of the bed gives you a place to sit down as you get ready, and the big screen TV is visible from bed. You can watch movies as you fall asleep or watch the news before climbing out of bed.

Outdoor Spaces
Grab a cup of coffee in the morning and head out to the bench looking out at the trees for a peaceful, refreshing start to your day. Or you can grab a book and prop up your feet for a quiet afternoon in the serene Smoky Mountains. Just off the side of the deck, a picnic table among the trees gives you a great place to sit down for a meal. Toss some burgers or kabobs on the charcoal grill and enjoy a fun evening with family and friends.

On the deck, sit back with a jar of moonshine or a glass of local wine and relax in the rocking chairs. Rocking on your front porch is the ultimate mountain pastime! At the end of the day, climb into the hot tub to soak and unwind. With just the trees around, you can let yourself completely relax and enjoy the serenity of the mountains.
