I was able to locate the cabin in about 5 minutes. This is the first and best impression. The open concept of the cabin is unbelievable. We were in aww looking the Jacuzzi, bed, pool table, kitchen, dining area, living area and also the rest room. Please use of the space and an amazing appeal. The thing we can cherish for the entire life is to view the sun rise and moon rise while sleeping on the bed. Amazing amazing amazing. Definitely going to be back with an extended family soon

Relaxing and Wonderful cabin.
I have vacationed Gatlinburg yearly for many years. This was the first time staying with Smokey Mountain Golden Cabins and by far was the best visit. I have had. I loved the easy check in and out. I loved the Wears Valley area. This was the best vacation I have had in many years. The cabin was clean, secluded, and quiet. It had great views of the mountain. Out of 5 stars it gets a 6. Thank you Donn and Margaret.

Wonderful stay in the Smokies
We had the best time at the “Golden Memories” cabin on our honeymoon. The cabin was very clean and cozy, and Donn and Margaret were available for everything we needed. We never rented a private cabin before and the process with them was very easy! We will highly recommend the cabin to our friends and we will be back!

The cabin was absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way! Couldn’t ask for more for a romantic getaway. Beautiful view of the mountains and clean and well maintained. Excellent location — away from the crowds and traffic of the more commercialized areas, but close enough that if you want to head that way, you can. I can’t say enough good things. Was everything I had hoped it would be and more!

My hubby and I may have been married nearly 45 years , but when we step into Golden Memories cabin we feel like Honeymooners again.
The coziness of the studio reminds us of our first tiny apartment ????. And the heart shaped tub with room for two is perfect for relaxing after a long drive to TN.. We plan on visiting Golden Memories many more times in the future! We Love It????

We stayed in this cabin for our honeymoon and it was a great experience! Everything was clean when we got there and it looked just like the pictures. Everything was in running order and there were no surprises. The cabin is somewhat secluded which is nice, and close to many local restaurants and attractions and is even a short drive to Pigeon Forge. We also liked that it was very close to one of the few entrances into the Smoky Mountain National Park. We would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone who is considering!

Wonderful Cabin With a Great View
My husband and I took a trip to the Smokey Mountains to celebrate our 40th. anniversary. Your cabin was so delightful and had a beautiful view of the mountains. It was so much better than staying in a hotel! The cabin was spacious and had everything one would need. It would be a beautiful place to stay in the fall to view the changing colors. We will recommend your cabin to all our friends.

We found our stay in this lovely little cabin very enjoyable and relaxing. It was the perfect place to stay for hiking in the Smokies since the park is literally 5 minutes away. The cabin was beautiful and very well-equipped with everything we needed including a wonderful hot tub to relax in after long hikes. There is a lovely view of the mountains from the back porch making it the perfect place for morning coffee. Don & Margaret are great and always available if you need anything. We will definitely stay here again!

Better Than Expected
My stay at the Golden Memories cabin could not have been more satisfying. The cabin was clean and well maintained, the bed was very comfortable to sleep in after long hikes, and the seclusion from other tourists was my favorite feature. This cabin exceeded my expectations and when I visit the Smoky Mountains again, I will be staying at this cabin. The name “Golden Memories” is definitely fitting, as I got engaged here too!

A little slice of heaven
Easy drive from pigeon forge. Better than pics. Bed was very comfortable. Very private and the view from the hottub makes you want to stay longer. The owners are VERY accomodating and their cabin provided everything +.Just bring food, outside firewood and be ready to relax. Would have stayed another day if available!. This is one we will rebook. Ty

10 year anniversary get away
This cabin was great! This was our first time staying in a cabin in the Smokies and we will definitely be doing it again. Loved the valley view and it was so easy getting anywhere from or cabin. Less than 10 minutes from the strip and very quite at night. Enjoyed the sunrise view from bed and the stars at night. Hot tub was perfect for relaxing after a day of hiking and sight seeing. Pool table was great fun as well. Didn’t want to leave that Friday morning. Thank you for letting us use your little slice of heaven for a few days. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone that is just getting away with their spouse for a getaway. I’m curious to check out your other cabins for a family vacation with the kids.

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary here we enjoyed it very much. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Its not as secluded as it looks in the pictures but not bad. If you like to cook bring your own kitchen knives because the ones in the cabin are very dull. Good thing I had a fairly sharp pocket knife! It was not hard to find and close enough to all the attractions.
Stayed October 1, 2015 to October 5, 2015(Smoky Mountain Golden Cabins, Golden Memories cabin)
everything was so perfect, hot tub on the deck viewing the beautiful mountains was terrific. Cabin was very clean and home like. All though we did not cook there, the kitchen was well stocked with everything you will need. We almost missed the road to turn , as it is very hidden, but it was during the day and was ok.

Perfect Couples Retreat
My husband I and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the golden memories cabin; it was the perfect couples retreat. We found everything we needed to create a home away from home from the kitchen, laundry, and cozy living area. The bed was comfortable and the hot tub and fire pit were amazing to enjoy at sunset. The cabin is conveniently located near all the Smokey Mountain fun but far enough away from all the activity to feel serene. Reservations were easy to make, the place was very clean, and the rates very reasonable for the value. Last but not least, the view of the mountains from the back porch and hot tub was great…really beautiful. My husband and I highly recommend this cabin and we hope to visit again in the future.
