Outstanding rental cabin

Our apologies to Debra & Jerry for delaying our review for our visit May 15 - May 22, 2010 @ "Destiny Den". Since our return home we have had two sequential sets of family visitors. In retrospect, we realize that we should have rented the cabin AFTER the visitations.
Despite living nearby in western NC, this was our first trip into the area. We have made numerous annual vacations to Charleston, SC and then segued to Savannah, GA. Now Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg is our annual R&R destination.
If we could assign a "6" star rating for the home, we would. It was very clean and warmly decorated.
For those with spinal issues, we must note that the mattress was supportive and extremely comfortable. The owners frequent the cabin themselves; this is reflected in the nice furnishings and maintenance.
The view from the rear deck surpasses the photos. The sunset views were spectacular...think blackened mountains silhouetted by a pink, lavender and pale yellow sky. You look out over the tops of the trees and above the nearby undeveloped valley onto the distant mountain range. And yes, you faintly hear the Dollywood train whistle. It is an unforgettable way to end the day.
"Destiny Den" / the Hidden Springs Resort area is very close to the Dollywood parks. While still in a quiet, rustic, forested, vicinity almost abutting the amusement facility, you have but a few miles on a rural road with minimal stop signs between the cabin and commercial hub of Pigeon Forge.
Our weather forecast was grim ( and very erroneous) with predicted T-storms every day. We bought cheap, foldable / disposable raincoats and toured in the occasional rain. (NO lines @ Dollywood...we went on everything without waiting!)
Despite living in the mountains of western NC, Diane has issues with heights / elevation. The Hidden Springs Resort in which the cabin is located, has nicely paved, double lane roads that were easily and safely travelled in the inclement weather. She noticed that some rentals were accessed only by single wide graveled roads that were difficult to navigate and allow other cars to pass.
Debra & Jerry were very responsive and communicative to all inquiries. You establish a personal as well as a business bond with them. We look forward to renting their unit again.
We were rewarded for all our research. Destiny Den was an unforgettable place to come home to, to turn off the electronics, to relax and sit on the deck and to escape into the view.
