We have stayed in this area Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Dandridge, etc. several times and never really found what we wanted however Smoky Mountain Villas exceeded our expectations! If you are looking to getaway from the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge this is the place to be! Offering a peaceful / tranquil environment while being less than 30 minutes away from everything we could ever want in East Tennessee makes this place by far our favorite.
