This is a partial list of cabins purchased by and currently owned by Jay Fradd's clients in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. These properties include overnight rental cabins with mountain views, heated indoor pools, theater rooms, fire pits, and many more amazing features. This list is intended to be kept accurate and active, but at times cabin management companies change their url link structure and other things.

Features and Amenities of the Cabins

As you can see there is quite the variety in overnight cabin rental investments. The sizes and number of bedrooms vary from small honeymoon type one bedroom cabins up to eight bedroom luxury lodges.

The predominant areas of the cabins are Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Wears Valley, and Cosby (indoor pool cabins). Some cabins are located further north and I characterized them as Sevierville Other properties are located in the Waldens Creek, Bluff Mountain, or Pittman Center areas but I labeled them as Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. They are in close proximity to those cities and they are more recognizable destinations.

The features of the cabins vary tremendously. There is a common theme though with the cabins. They all have some sort of redeeming quality or amenity. Whether that be a huge investment rental income driver such as an indoor pool or something more common such as a fire pit. The features of the investment cabins my clients own include:

  1. Indoor Pools
  2. Theater Rooms
  3. Mountain Views
  4. Fire Pits
  5. Secluded or Private
  6. Arcades
  7. Walk-in Showers
  8. Luxury
  9. Gourmet Kitchens
  10. Screened Porches
  11. Hot Tubs
  12. Pool Tables
  13. Air Hockey Tables
  14. Foosball Tables
  15. Game Rooms
  16. Mini Golf Courses/Putt-Putt Golf
  17. Community Pools
  18. Gated Communities
  19. Luxury Bathrooms
  20. Luxury Furnishings
  21. Outdoor Living Space
  22. Easy Access/Convenient Location
  23. Creek or River Frontage
  24. Handicap Accessible
  25. Large Master Suites with King Beds

The goal is to include as many profitable type features in a cabin. This will help ensure the success of your investment cabin and stand out above the crowd. People have budgets and having all of the above amenities isn’t realistic. However, having around ten or even half of these features is attainable by quite a few cabins. Including many my clients current own.

The above list isn’t necessarily in order of the most desirable or the most important to increase rental income. However, the first five are among the most common features to assist in boosting rental income above the run of the mill cabin in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. Hot tubs and pool tables are so incredibly common in our market they don’t stand out as unique.

Contact Jay Fradd about these Rental Cabins

If you have any questions about what creates a profitable and desirable overnight rental cabin investment please don’t hesitate to contact me. Or if you have an interest in purchasing an investment cabin from the list of my clients’ rental cabins in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge please let me know. You never know what they’ll say!

For potential guests and renters visiting our area and looking at these cabins please feel free to reach out as well. I would be happy to let you know about the details of each property. All of these cabins are wonderful properties and I’m sure my clients would enjoy having you as guests.

Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge Management Companies used by my Clients

Some of the cabin rental management companies (or self managing) my clients are using include:

  • Elk Springs Resort – Excellent gross rental revenues for luxury properties. Elk Springs Resort also offers a phenomenal maintenance team and good cleaners. Elk Springs Resort is by far the most commonly used management company by my clients. Their consistency in driving high rental incomes, even in the “off season” seems second to none. Luxury cabins with top notch amenities thrive under Elk Springs Resort’s management.
  • Cabins USA – Terrific ownership and customer service team. Cabins USA is a solid option. Especially on more budget friendly cabins. They are able to produce a very generous gross rental income on properties that don’t quite match up to the luxury cabins.
  • Cabins For You – Pool cabins are numerous under Cabins For You management. They offer a very competitive split to owners. Especially if you have a high gross rental income producing investment cabin. Or multiple cabins that have desirable features.

Less Commonly Used Management Companies by my Clients

  • Patriot Getaways – Solid ownership and have been in the Sevier County overnight cabin rental management business for a long time
  • Jackson Mountain Homes – Previously known for excellent customer service. Many owners raved about the staff at Jackson Mountain Homes. They were purchased by VTrips (who also own Vacation Rental Pros and Cabin Fever Vacations along with Jackson Mountain Homes).
  • Hearthside Cabin Rentals – If you have an exceptionally large cabin with ten or more bedrooms Hearthside is certainly a good option.  Their Large Cabin Rental division operates massive lodges in subdivisions such as Wild Briar, The Preserve, Legacy Mountain, Bear Creek Crossing, and others. 
  • Wyndham Vacation Rentals – The worldwide company bought Smoky Mountain Property Management in August 2012 that consisted of Sugar Maple Cabins, Majestic Mountain Vacations, Gatlinburg Cabins Online, The Preserve Resort, Legacy Mountain Resort, and Sherwood Forest Resort. At one point Sugar Maple Cabins and Majestic Mountain were among the highest gross rental producing cabins in the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge area. A very large number and percentage of my clients had their cabins under management by one of Smoky Mountain Property Management’s companies. Over time the vast majority switched over after Wyndham’s ownership.

Self Managed Investment Cabins via AirBnb and VRBO

Several of my clients opt to manage their cabin(s) themselves via VRBO, HomeAway, and/or AirBnB. These owners are successful and have a good team in place to handle cleaning and maintenance. The amount of time it takes to manage a property on your own may be less than one would expect. It is certainly an option worth evaluating and considering as a cabin owner in the Smoky Mountains.

  • VRBO – For those wishing to self manage their cabins VRBO and HomeAway are most likely the best option to primarily use for luxury type cabins.
  • AirBnB – This is a good option for cabins that are more budget friendly and where the owner would like to self manage. I have noticed AirBnB works well for smaller one or two bedroom cabins in our market. While VRBO/HomeAway tends to have more success with either more luxury or larger cabins.
