What Past Guests Are Saying
Fishing Hole is the our new favorite place to stay!
My husband and I rented Fishing Hole for a quick weekend getaway and absolutely loved it! It is a beautiful, clean cabin and the fishing decor is very whimsical. We love to fish and were thrilled with the private pond. Although it rained the majority of time, my hubby braved the elements and still caught 3 fish. We are planning to return for a longer vacation this fall!
This cabin is perfect! It is peaceful, comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated and fun! We loved everything but especially the fishing, hot tub, pool table and views. Caught and released some bluegills and bass. Wish we had more time to stay longer. Will be back for sure. Thank you for sharing your truly wonderful cabin :)
Response from Lucky Dague - 05/15/2013
Glad you had a great time and we look forward to your next visit.
We had a great time!!!
My Wife & I along with our dogs had a great time at the cabin. It rained all day for 1 of the days so we just hung out, played pool & used the hot tub it was very relaxing. We also ran into Pigeon Forge which was just a little down the road so we could get everything we needed but it is far enough away that you don't feel like you are anywhere near a city. We would love to drive down and stay again!!! Once again we had a great time!!! Thank You for allowing us to stay!!

Your welcome we enjoyed having you stay @ The Fishing Hole.
By far the best cabin I've stayed in.
Most vacations there's something that will go wrong, but here at the fishing hole I had nothing but 100% satisfaction. I will only recommend staying with this company. I had a great time.
Cozy and relaxing - great location
We found our experience at The Fishing Hole to be fun with the gameroom/hot tub and otherwise cozy and relaxing. We liked that soap, shampoo/conditioner, lotion and other supplies such as dishwashing powder was provided (and eco-friendly). We also found the location to be just close enough to the attractions of Sevierville,Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountain National Park - which was a beautiful experience. We would stay again and recommend to friends and family.
Forest City, NC
It was a girls weekend away and we had a blast! The hot tub setting made tons of memories for us! We were snowed in for a day and loved it! Thanks so much for offering us such a fantastic get away place!
Excellent & Beautiful Place
We had a great time & Luck was so wonderful & helpful. We loved the pond and the home was very clean & neat and beruitful. And we Def loved the view We will def be coming back very soon. Thanks so much.
This beautiful cabin was the best way I could have spent the wee
This cabin was very clean and well maintained. The inside layout was perfect and provided lots of comforts. We enjoyed the hot tub on the screened in porch a lot. I would reccomendation this place to anyone!
I never want to leave the fishing hole!
This cabin is awesome!! It's the perfect place to go for a relaxing getaway. We come back every year and have some many memories there!!! I highly recommend this place.
Best By Far
I love going to Tenn. But what even made it better was staying at the fishing hole. The cabin is far enough out that you get that rustic, quiet and comfortable pleasure, but yet close enough to enjoy everything. I have stayed there four times now and no complaints at all. The cabin is very clean, and has all the features required for all to enjoy their vacation at any time of the year. Very comfortable bed, a game room which includes a pool table for friends to really have a good time. A hot Tub that is very soothing and a well kept kitchen that supplies everything needed, just all in all a very wonderful experiece in deed. I love the fishing hole, and you will too, so please if you're planning a trip to tenn. stay there you won't regret it!!! Tell Lucky and Tamera I sent you.
My boyfriend and I stayed here February 8th-February 10th for his upcoming birthday and Valentine's Day. It was a beautiful place to stay. The location was perfect, quiet & peaceful. The decor was adorable! Played lots of billards & the hottub was very relaxing. To say the least, we had a fantastic stay.
I love visiting the Fishing Hole!
I love visiting the Fishing Hole because it it so relaxing. I recommend everyone to go to the Fishing Hole!
it was very peaceful, relaxing an clean, we had a great time
this is our 2nd time staying at the fishing hole, we loved it and weill return, the cabin was perfect and cozy, all the comfortd of home, and the Dague's who own the cabin are very gracious and just plain good people.
Most amazing relaxing time!!!
so relaxing, so clean, so would go back again and again. The decor is inspiring. just had a wonderful relaxing get away time. I would recommend to all my friends to stay at lazy days, because that's what it was, lazy days, just wish it didn't have to end. The owners were so gracious and hospitable to us :-) The bed was as comfortable as my bed at home, maybe even more comfortable than mine!!! This has been our second stay at lazy days and plan on going back again and again!!! even tho it was only an hour away from our house, we felt like we were a million miles away. If you are into arts and crafts and antique stores then this is definitely the place to stay, there are so many little shops in Wears Valley you can't see them all in one day or if you prefer to go to the mountains and take in beautiful Townsend, Great Smokey Mts. or Cades Cove then this is the place to stay, it is also just a few miles from Pigeon Forge, but when you stay at lazy days cabin you can have your tranquility or you can leave and do so much, all within miles. Perfect location to everything but yet feeling like you are away from everything. Thank you to the Dagues, our gracious hosts. O yeah, my fourteen year old son loved tapping his foot on the deck at the pond and watching all of the fish come to the surface, he tried to fish a little, but if he caught anything he was going to throw it back in so there are always fish there for other people to enjoy :-)I would love to have the Full wrap around porch at my house, I could so see myself and my husband living there. they also have a washer and dryer there, which was great for the wet towels when we got out of the hot tub!!!
I just can't say enough good things about this cabin, bottom line, just had a wonderful relaxing time!!!

Relaxing Place to stay
Fishing hole is a great place to stay and we received excellent service from Lucky Dague. The place is decorated so nice and has the comforts of home. The location is great because you can do alot of things such as walking, hiking, swimming, fishing and shop the small stores along Wears Valley Road and Pigeon Forge is just a short drive from the cabin. We love the hot tub, pool table and the front porch swing. It is a place that you sit back and relax and enjoy the view.
West Lafayette, In
We were pleased to find the cabin exceeded our expectations! The game room is fun, the pond was handy for fishing, and the cabin was delightful. Tasteful decor, very clean, lots of little extras. You can enjoy the cabin or venture out to explore the many attractions. Good dining options or grill at the cabin. This was a great find for a nice getaway, we would highly recommend.
First Cabin Experience
Beautiful Cabin!! Great Location!! Fishing in the pond allowed me to recall my childhhood years, and was a wonderful experience to share with my seven year old daughter. Hope to come back in the near future!

Paradise in Pigeon Forge
September 3rd-10th,2012-When we first drove up I went right to the water an my first thoughts were I wish it were bigger and had more cover in the water. Be that as it may, the fishing was both challenging and great. We caught bluegills on fly rods and Bass on tube jigs, brush hogs and poppers. It was great. When we went into the cabin I was amazed. It was much more than the pictures on the internet and the amenities were second to none. Everything you could think of that you forgot to bring along was there. Attention to detail for comfort and pleasure was taken care of on every level. We had a great time and highly recommend it. We will be back again soon. The owner " Lucky" was great to talk to as well. Our dog ozzie (maltese) loved it too.

Doug and Jen,
Glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your next trip back. Thanks for all the great fishing tips, we really enjoyed having you.
"Hole" lotta fishin fun
Great time, tons of fish for my husband and boys to catch. Good time at the pool (thanks!) Great location, close to town, park, river activities and enjoyed coming back to make dinner, s'mores, hot tub and relaxing! Also liked that my boys had the downstairs and could go to bed while my husband and I had the upstairs and porches accessible. I was surprised tho , when first arriving that this was a studio type place (no master bdrm) which ended up working out fine, kinda glad we didnt know beforehand b/c we may have passed it up. Great place for small family of 4!
Perfect for 2!
The cabin is well maintained. My son chased ducks all day. Across from pool. Feeding the fish was a blast! Luck accommoded promptly.
Beautiful cabin with everything you can think of!
We had a great time at the Fishing Hole. Every detail was thought of and the cabin was decorated just beautifully! The game roon and hot tub was fun for the whole family. We didn't have a lot of luck at the fishing pond but it was a great idea and the kids did get to see the fish and fed them. The only truly negative part of our stay was that we had brought our 9 and 11 year old kids with us and had hoped for them to sleep on the pull out sofa. Only one of our four nights were we even able to pull the bed out of the sofa and the day we did we ended up putting pillows on top of the mattress because the bars underneath felt so awful. The king size bed on the other hand was amazing! The pictures were a little misleading as they make it look like the king size bed is in a bedroom but it is in the main room of the house. Overall, it was a very nice stay.
The cabin was great. Lucky was very nice and tried to do whatever was possible for our stay. My husband and I spent our 19th anniversary here and had a great and relaxing time. We caught a turtle and 2 fish. The swing on the porch was great to just relax. We ate from the concession at the pool and they had the best caramel pie. I would highly recommend going to the fishing hole. plan to try to go back this fall and take our son and dog. Thanks for a great night.
Response from Lucky Dague - 07/11/2012
Glad you got to relax and catch some fish, we look forward to your return visit. The carmel pie is one of my fav's too.
Very nice cabin, beautiful location
Very nice cabin located in a quiet, beautiful area. Fishing pond on property, & free swimming at nearby pool (walking distance). Very efficient & attentive owner, quick to respond. Would definitely rent from this owner again.

A week of luxury less than 5 hours from home
Had a great time. Fishing Hole is a wonderful place to stay. Loved being able to bring our dog with us. Nice and peaceful place to stay. The thing that really stands out to us is the cabin is always clean when we arrive and the grass has been mowed. If you are looking for a nice place to stay that is close to town you can't go wrong staying at The Fishing Hole.
Great Vacation in the Smokies!
The cabin was nice but I was a little disappointed that it wasn't a one bedroom but it was a studio with game room in basement. The boys wouldn't sleep downstairs on the sofa couch because there weren't any shades on the doors. My Grandson and his friend enjoyed the private deck and caught about 55 fish! We went to Cades Cove and saw a bear right beside the truck! It was digging something out of a tree trunk! The lightening bugs was a nice treat too! We wish we had another week to enjoy it!
It was within walking distance to the pool which cost $5.00 each to swim.
We enjoyed our stay at the Fishing Hole. It was very clean and had all the comforts we were looking for. Our pet was even content as he was able to be in the same room with us without going up &down; stairs all the time. He enjoyed the yard when it was time to go outside on the leash. We had plenty of clean towels and washcloths, the bed slept exceptionally well and we appreciated the convenience of WiFi. The location afforded a beautiful view of the mountains without having to drive on unpaved roadway. Thanks for letting us stay in your cabin.
Response from Lucky Dague - 06/09/2012

Absolutely The Best
The Fishing Hole Cabin has become a second home for us. It is always immaculately clean, comfortable and pleasant. It is remote enough for privacy, but a close drive to the Smoky Mountains and all local attractions. I can not say enough about Lucky Dague the Owner/Manager. He is a man of honor in every way. If you are looking for that perfect vacation retreat, then look no further.
Response from Lucky Dague - 06/04/2012
It was a pleasure to have you @ The Fishing Hole again!
Allie and Billie
We loved the Fishing Hole Cabin. We would reccomend this rental to anyone who wanted to stay in the smokey mountains. It is in a very good location, not to far from Pigeon Forge, but away enough for a quite night by the pond or hot tub. The decor was my favorite part. The Cabin is decorated from top to bottom with fishing and outdoor items. We brought our fishing poles but probably should have brought fish food instead. The fish in the pond are used to being fed so they did not bite our lures and bait. We loved it, even with the pet fish.
Response from Lucky Dague - 05/29/2012
Glad you had a great time. Hopefully next time you can stay longer but it worked out great that it was just available for the one night.
Rodney & family
A very quiet peaceful getaway; loved the fishing!
We really enjoyed fishing at the backdoor, the pool table, the comfy bed, and especially being pet-friendly. Great location, easy to get to and very quiet area. We hope to return soon, and would not hesitate recommending this cabin.
Mount Juliet, TN
This was the perfect get away for our 41st anniversary, my husband's 66th birthday,and my very recent diagnosis of terminal secondary breast cancer. I really needed the few days of rest and relaxation after such a crazy week of phone calls, emails, etc. from precious friends and family. Fishing off the deck was super convenient and the view, spectaculor!! The cabin was beautifully furnished and with so many extras, I couldn't list them all. We were very grateful to have found this online and will go back if we get the chance. You won't be sorry you stayed here!
The only drawback for me was the stairs. With my medical issues now, it was kinda hard, but still worth it.

We loved the cabin!!!
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cabin! The cabin was everything you said it was in your advertisement. The king size bed was very comfy. We were so pleased with the cleanliness. There was something about the cabin that made us want to relax! It rained a couple of nights - it was so relaxing to listen to the rain as it hit the metal roof. My husband fished (and yes, he caught a few) while I relaxed swinging on the front porch. The panaramic view of the mountains was amazing.
Thanks again - we hope to rent from you in the future!
We had a nice time.
We enjoyed staying in your cabin. It is beautifully decorated and quiet. However, there were a few things that concerned us. The mattress on the pull-out bed in the basement was ridiculously awful. My children had backaches as a result of the poor quality. We had problems throughout our stay with lots of bees and even hornets. Active hives are on both ends of the cabin and the bees just fly in the screened in porch under the doors. We killed lots! We loved having the water right out the back door!
Very nice cabin
Great location, quite, calm. Cabin is very interesting, neat hot tub area. Definitely would recommend.
Better the 2nd time...
This was are second stay and we choose this one again because we we familar with the cabin so the second stay was much better and now we are planning the third trip. We can't wait.
Giles County. TN
Need to relax or just getaway? This one has something for every
Young or old. Weekend or week. This cabin was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I went for a last minute romantic weekend. We were amazed how nice this cabin was. The description on this property I assure you is to the T. The location couldn't be more perfect. Far enough away for peace and quiet, yet just a hop skip and jump away from all downtown attractions. Lucky was very easy to contact. I did not have to wait for email or a call back to book this location. Lucky made the whole experience super smooth. My husband and I can't wait to return. In case I wasn't clear... Book it!! Book it!!!
Totally satisfied, relaxed

Love the cabin.
My family loves the cabin and the decor.. My husband and son really enjoys the fishing...Perfect for our family of 4.
Glad we found this one.
Glad I found this one.
Awesome cabin, we loved fishing right off the back deck. Hot Tub was sparkling clean.
Easy to find, easy check-in. Loved the cabin and the area, wished we could have stayed longer.
So nice and cozy!
We enjoyed our stay very much. It even came a dusting of snow the last night we were there.The cabin was so cozy with the fireplace and everything we needed was there. I wish the weather was better so my husband could fish some from the pond.But maybe next time! It was a great weekend and I would love to do it again. Thanks!
Absoluety Beautiful !!!
Me and my husband really enjoyed our vacation here we both liked fishing and being outdoors. It was very nice to sit on the deck and visit just to have some alone time that we dont get very much due to my husband being an over the road truck driver so our time spent together is limited sometimes . The owner had everything ready for us we didnt have to worry about anything we would recommend this stay at this cabin to anyone.Enjoy the quiet setting as my husband and I did you wont be sorry you did.
the service was fabulous and the location was immaculate!!! loved it will always return and see lucky!!!
best vacation ever, comfortable and relaxing
Very clean and comfortable, cozy, loved it. I would recomend this cabin to all my friends and family, I will definatley be back next year. Thank for a care free vacation.
i had a great time!
I had a fantastic time with my friends. I hope to come back soon.
I never want to leave the fishing hole!!!
I love going to the Fishing Hole!! It is the perfect place for a getaway. We have made many memories there and look fowared to many more. The cabin is awesome, we love the hot tub and the fire place!! The staff is fantastic!! I highly recommend this place, you wont be disappointed.
The Cabin that has it all!!!
During my recent stay in the Cabin called "The Fishing Hole" It was so wonderful. Only minutes from resturants,shopping, and loads of fun activities. The cabin itself was immaculate. Anything and everything you'd want is right there.Including a very comfortable king size bed. I slept without a problem!!! The Hot Tub was very relaxing and enjoyable.and The pool table downstairs made the nights alot of fun with my friends. We also took our laptops and had no problems with internet connections. The nights are quite and very peaceful. Even the mountain views few breath taking. Everything about our stay there was awesome!! Trust me you can't go wrong staying at "The Fishing Hole" Its #1 on my list. We've stayed there for the past several years,and We all absolutely love it!
Absolutely amazing anniversary!
Our stay at the Fishing Hole was so much fun and was absolutely amazing. This was our 3rd year in a row celebrating our anniversary at here and each year the stay is always peaceful, amazing, and we couldn't ask for more from a weekend away! Lucky is always friendly and helpful with the stay and the cabin is always extremely warm,inviting, and clean! We can't wait until next year to celebrate our anniversary at the Fishing Hole again! Thank you so much for allowing us to use your beautiful home!
Great weekend vacation!
Had another wonderful stay at the fishing hole! Thats why I planned another trip there, because its private, has good view of the mountains, and is a very cozy cabin. We enjoyed the pool table and hot tub for a very relaxing time. We will definitely be going back again!
Beth, Dan, and Bentley
We had a very peaceful, relaxing time at the fishing hole.
The place was big, clean, and well cared for. We made use of the gas grill, the fire place, and the hot tub. The Christmas tree was a nice touch. Lucky was helpful in answering our questions about the dining, grocery, and shopping availability. Overall a wonderful vacation stop.
Joe & Diana
Love the cabin
Each time we stayed at the cabin was very nice. The only negative thing I can think of was the cold water not working in the kitchen. I hope this problem is fixed on our next visit. Also, Lucky cuts the grass on the day of our arrival, Cove mountain never did that. We always had to call and ask them to cut the 1 foot high grass. Lucky makes sure the lawn is cut very nice. Also the cabin is very clean upon our arrival. We do not even consider looking elsewhere for our stay in Pigeon Forge. Also we love the fire pit, hot tub, fishing pond and pet friendly. It is a great place to spend a week that we hate to leave.
Response from Lucky Dague - 12/25/2011
Joe and Diana,
Thank you so much, we look forward to your next visit at The Fishing Hole. The cold water issue in the kitchen sink has been fixed.
We stayed in this wonderful cabin for a short getaway and couldn't have been happier. Really enjoyed bringing our two fur babies and the space they had to run around outside. The pond is a nice feature as well, very cute! The cabin was very clean and met all of our needs. Couldn't be happier and would love to stay here again!
Response from Lucky Dague - 02/17/2012
Glad you enjoyed your stay, look forward to your next visit.
A very serene,relaxing stay!
I have to say this is the cleaniest and most beautifully decorated cabin that we have ever stayed in. It has everything you could ever need to have a great vacation. I loved the big,comfy mattress and the steamy,relaxing hot tub. We cannot wait to bring the kids next time. We hope to rebook for the spring. Lucky is also very easy to work with and made our stay great! He is easy to get a hold of and quick to respond if your gps gets you lost:) This is a great cabin!

Thank you for taking time to leave a review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return visit. Happy holidays!

We enjoyed our stay. The cabin had some pros and some cons. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. We made good use of the pool table during our stay. We also liked the pond. We could see plenty of small bream, however, they wouldn't bite. It was still fun to feed them fish food pellets. The cons were mostly associated with maintenance and upkeep. The kitchen had no cold water. We had to get cold water from the bathroom. It irritated us when learned that the agent was aware of the water problem when he rented us the cabin but said nothing. The bathroom linoleum was in poor condition. If you open the back screen door wide, it would come off its hinge. There was a broken hinge on the kitchen cabinet where the trash is kept. It appeared that the outside porch, handrails, and deck had not been stained nor weather protected in years. The grill had no grease catch pan. Dripping grease had really made a mess on the grill and porch decking below.
Very quiet, peaceful retreat. Beautiful location. Nice decor.
My wife and I took our two granddaughters to the Fishing Hole and their first trip to Dollywood. It's a ten-mile drive off the main strip in Pigeon Forge, but not bad if you want to be away from the mainstream tourism at night. The bed was super comfortable and the kitchen nicely appointed. There were only two minor reasons I didn't rate this excellent: 1) There were no blinds or curtains downstairs for privacy (right off the parking area) and although we didn't have neighbors that could see in without trespassing, nobody wanted to sleep downstairs when someone could possibly just walk up and see right inside. 2) In order to bring your stuff up to the main living space you either have to struggle up the spiral staircase or haul them to the pond and then up the back staircase across the porch, through a door on the screened porch, and through another door into the cabin. I am a big guy and my three girls haul a lot of stuff--even for just three nights. We had to create a "bucket brigade" to pass stuff up the spiral staircase to each other to unload and load the car without tracking in a bunch of dirt or climbing the stairs over and over. Other than that, the place lived well for our stay and we would stay there again because the price was right and it had just enough separation from the hoardes of tourists.
Best cabin i have found by far!!
Our stay was amazing, the cabin was spotless and in a great location. Also the owners were soo nice and made everything so easy. I will def. refer friends looking for a nice place to stay. I searched the internet for other places before finding the fishing hole and all the accommodations were sub par, but the fishing hole exceeded my expectations. You will not be disappointed.
not what i expected
The cabin was ok but not what I expected, the pond looks a lot different from the picture. It's very small and murky looking. Also we thought the property was more secluded. The enterance is not convenient for carrying bags and the spiral staircase was inconvenient too. There was no chalk or babypowder for the pool table. Last but not least the picture showed a flatscreen tv by the jecuzzi but there was an old tube tv there.
What to rest with a beautiful view
Over all good, by the 3rd day the hot tub had a bad odor and was green is the only complaint other than the check out time was to early should be noon since you cant check in til 3
We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin was wonderful the kids really enjoyed the pond. We would love to come back next year.
The cabin was fantastic. Everything was in great condition and it was the perfect relaxing getaway. I live about 45 minutes away from here and it felt like I was not even in my hometown anymore! Thanks and I will definitely stay here again!
Taking a break from life
We booked the Fishing Hole as a vacation get away from stress & all the fast passed hassles of life... The decor of the cabin is amazing!!.. Everywhere you looked, there was something else to enjoy. Played checkers on the screened in porch. Listened to the radio while rocking the worries away on the back porch while looking at the lake. Sat in the swing on the front porch and watched the sunrise in the mornings and looked at the lights on the cabins on the mountains at night. Spectacular views. Bed is so comfortable! Amenities are awesome! ..Lucky is very professional & kind. We caught some fish and set them free back into lake. Went to Cades Cove & saw some deer. Had a great time... will be back again!!.. Thank you for having the cabin for rental. Highly recommended to everyone!!

Great Family Vacation
You and I have read the other reviews; here's mine: My family enjoyed this cabin so much, we didn't want to leave to go do the pigeon forge/gatlinburg thing. Can you imagine? My three kids wanted to stay at the cabin the whole time! After vacation, they called me "the best daddy ever".
Response from Lucky Dague - 09/08/2011
Glad you had a wonderful time and i look forward to your next visit back to The Fishing Hole.
it was a very peaceful and relaxing stay.
we appreciate you having us in your beautiful cabin.we enjoyed our stay.me and my kids caught several fish and enjoyed the pool that was close by.also enjoyed the convenience of being close to all the attractions. thanks again we will definatelt be back!
We had a really nice time. The cabin was decorated beautifully and the fishing was great! Unfortunately, I wish we would have known it wasn't suitable for people who had a difficult time with stairs. It is beautifully decorated. But the only way to get to the lower level is down a spiral staircase or to go outside, down the outside steps. This would have been fine if we were younger. But we were celebrating our 40th anniversary and we're in our early 60's. We found the steps and spiral staircase a big challenge when carrying in our luggag. Once we got settled in, we liked it and was glad to have lots of space for our little dogs to walk and we like the fishing! It was great for that! Unfortunately, we wouldn't go back again because of the steps/stairs.
I was impressed with the cabin & liked it so much I will return!
Loved it will be back soon. It was so nice to go fishing at the drop of a hat. I liked the location as well, did not have to stay in the city. But was close enough to the city it was conveniant to go to. Had a great time!

A Perfect Retreat
The Fishing Hole is cozy, charming, and clean, with great amenities. Kids had a ball fishing, and we all had a relaxing, wonderful experience!
Response from Lucky Dague - 08/08/2011
Thank you, and I hope you are able to stay longer next time. Glad that the kids enjoyed the fishing.
I was very disappointed with this rental.
There is a lot of misleading information in the description of this cabin. It would have been fine for anyone not wanting privacy. The "one" bedroom that is has is not a bedroom. The king bed is in the middle of the living room, next to the kitchen! We put the kids downstairs on an air mattress since the sleeper couch was so uncomfortable but we could still not have any privacy because the staircase was open and it was a spiral one that moved a lot...not safe for small children. The bathroom is too small to even mention...we have a 5th wheel camper and our bathroom is larger in it than in this cabin. The roof also has several leaks and it rained a lot while we were there. There were also cob webs hanging from the ceiling everywhere, especially the bathroom. And for the pond...that was a joke. There is nothing in that pond but snapping turtles which we caught about 6 large ones...they have eaten all the fish. I have rented cabins in this area of Tennessee for over 15 years and this was by far the worst ever.

Sorry you were dissatified with the accomidations at the Fishing Hole, we strive very hard to make this cabin enjoyable for all our guests. Although we did not design the floor plan, it is a cabin and was not built with the intention of living in it, it is strickly a overnight rental.
We have owned several cabins in the area and this one is far our most popular rental. We also have over 150 possitive reviews (104 on VRBO) and this is our second negative so I guess it is true that you can't please everyone. We do appreciate the "true" negative feedback about the cob web in the bathroom and we have taken care of that, thank you for bringing that to our attention as well a possible leaky roof since it is covered by warranty we will have them come check it right away. The remainer of your review was is a 'Big Fish Tale". The pond is stocked every spring and it has hundreds of fish, the guests that checked out yesterday caught over 20. Sofa sleepers are what they are, I have never found a comfortable one. On your next trip to the Smokies I would recommend that you bring your 5th wheel trailer since there are several nice campgrounds in the area.
the cabin was great the setting was very enjoyable the only thing is the distance back to Piegeon Forge
Smyrna South Carolina
Best time I've had on vacation in a while.
I have not been on vacation in over 5yrs. This was the perfect place to vacation for me. I had a wonderful time and the location was great, far enough out to not be bothered, but close enough so you dont have to ride for ever to get to a store. I over all had a great experience at the fishing hole and looking foward to doing it again next year.

peaceful, fun and beautiful place
We loved the cabin and enjoyed the amenities, pool, hot tub, pool table,etc.
the view was beautiful and as well as the cabin.

We chose the Fishing Hole because my son wanted to use the private fishing pond. When we got there, we were very impressed with the cabin. The pictures did not do justice to the place. The cabin is clean and airy and quite spacious. The hot tub was great and my husband enjoyed the pool table. When we had trouble with the WiFi, Lucky came right away and spent 4 hours fixing it. We can tell , the cabin was well maintained. It felt like home. We will definitely come back.

Thanks Doc, hope you and your family can return on your next trip to the Smokies.
We had a wonderful trip! My 8 yr old son loved the fishing pond & caught several fish!
The pool is short walk & big size. (the downfall was paying $5.00 p.p. to swim) The pool snack bar was good & we didn't have to drive back out! Thanks for letting us stay & hope to return.
Cross Lanes, WV
Relaxing, Fun, and Looking forward to the next time.
We spent Memorial Day Weekend at the Fishing hole and were very happy with The Fishing Hole. The pond provided plenty of enjoyment with our daily catch of Bass and Croppie. In the evenings, we enjoyed the Hot Tub, Fire Pit, and the occasional game of pool. We like the location since it was away from all of the traffic but still enabled us to head to all the major attractions quickly. This was a great experience and a great rental. Lucky was very easy to work with and provided us everything we needed to walk right in and enjoy our trip. We look forward to our next trip to the Smokey Mtns!

Wow, where do I start with our spring break! We decided to take the kids to Pigeon Forge for spring break. As we began to plan, we ran across the "The Fishing Hole" on tripadvisor. We could not have chosen a better place to spend spring break! Everything about the cabin was done in a spirit of excellence! My family loves to fish so we went to bed fishing and woke up fishing! The cabin was off of the beaten path but not too far from all of the excitement in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg! Even our dog princess enjoyed "The Fishing Hole". Lucky, we would like to thank you for a wonderful cabin that accomodated me, my husband, 3 kids and my dog Princess! It is only a one bedroom but will accomodate more being that there is a gameroom with pull out sofa on the bottom floor and the bedroom on the top floor! It was absolutely wonderful! It was great running into Lucky at Fuddruckers also! We will definitely be going back but maybe next time for some husband/wife time! Lol!
Luxury in the Smokies
Everything you would want in a vacation. Very clean cabin, fishing right in your backyard and a relaxing hot tub along with a tv to watch the race or the NBa playoffs.It doesn't get any better than that. Yes it can. We were also permitted to bring our dog along with us. It was a very enjoyable experience that we cannot wait to do again. Also enjoyed the pool table. I could go on and on.
My family (Wife and three kids) and I stayed at the 'Fishin Hole' from 25-29 april 2011 and we had a blast. The cabin was neat and clean and the pond is fully stocked. The area is quaint, but not dull.
You are located near all of the attractions that Pigeon Forge has to offer, yet you're not caught in the hum drum of noise, traffic and throngs of people. Whether it's you and a significant other, or a moderate size family, not more than three young children or two teenagers, then this cabin is for you.
Families in the surrounding cabins and campground were extremely friendly too. Additionally, the 'Fishin Hole' is pet friendly. We kennel our dog at night time and whenever we leave the house. We maintain this standard, whether we're in our hometown of Fayetteville, NC or whether we're on vacation. I only mention this because it seems that other families must do this too as the 'Fishin Hole' showed 'Zero' signs of pet destruction. And based upon all that my wife and I read, this cabin is heavily utilized by families with pets.
Lucky has done an outstanding job of maintaining this property, and upon meeting him we could tell that he enjoys renting this property. Lucky, my family and I thank you for allowing us to have a relaxing and peaceful time at the 'Fishin Hole'.

Thank you so much and please come back and visit again.
Peaceful & Serene
The Fishing Hole was a perfect spot for our family vacation! Immaculate! Away from the bustle, but close enough to participate in all of the fun shows & shopping! My toddler especially loved the pool table and hot tub! Thanks for a great stay!

Top Notch Cabin in a Great Location
The fishing pond was such a great feature to this cabin. Our 3 year old son had a great time. The cabin was decorated and equipped better than any cabin we have been to in the past. Lucky, the owner was very helpful and kind. We will be back soon.
Response from Lucky Dague - 04/26/2011
Thanks, glad you enjoyed your stay, look forward to your return visit.
We all loved the Fishing Hole. The breathtaking views of the Great Smoky Mountains surrounded by ponds to fish in made this trip wonderful. We loved grilling on the gas grill, relaxing in the hot tub, sitting on the porches in rockers, swimming in the pool, and fishing, fishing, fishing! We also drove into town a few times for shopping and dining. We even took in a Tennessee Smokies Baseball game one night. We loved it and already have our next trip to the Fishing Hole booked!
New Orleans, Louisiana
We all truly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. My husband and the girls fished for hours! They were sooo excited to catch large mouth bass and the biggest perch they have ever caught! All in all, between the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg activities, the mountains, the pool, and the fishing...it was a great way to relax and spend time together! Thanks!
Response from Lucky Dague - 04/09/2011
Thanks for the great photos, you sure had some "LUCK" at fishing. Hope you can return again soon.
The Best Birthday Gift Ever...
I contacted the Lazy Days Cabin Rentals for a weekend get away for my girl, her daughter and myself...for her birthday gift.
Needless to say it was the best gift she has ever gotten and the only reason was this cabin. Quite, cozy and stocked with fish.
Best 2 nights I have slept in a long time.
Best Time Ever
Husband and I had a great time fishing. we also like sitting out on the balacony,watching the sunset! The hot tub was very relaxing too. The inside of this cabin was extremly clean and well taken care of. overall was very enjoyable and would recommend to anybody!!!
A perfect, romantic getaway for two
I wanted to surprise my wife with a spontaneous weekend in the mountains. Lucky really worked with me, and I booked the perfect place for an awesome price. The Fishing Hole was incredible. The cabin was immaculately clean and well-kept. The fireplace and the hot tub were so romantic at night. Playing pool was a lot of fun, even though I think the table is jinxed because my wife beat me for the first time ever. This was the place we needed to be alone and reconnect. It was close enough to town that we were able to go spend time in downtown Gatlinburg, but,at the cabin, we felt like the only two people in the world. My wife loved the layout and the decor of the cabin and we really felt right at home. Everything was wonderful, and I only wish we could have stayed longer. We will most definitely be back.
Relaxing Family Retreat with adventure at Your Fingertips
The Fishing Hole porvided a perfect combination of relaxation and luxury for my family of four during our first trip to Tennessee. We initally settled in and the kids and my husband quickly started fishing; they were not disappointed. We spent our days venturing into the Smokies for hiking or participating in the Junior Ranger programs. In the evenings we often rode through Cades Cove where we actually saw two black bears, deer, turkeys, and many fireflies! We did use the pool down the road several times and it was clean and not very crowded. The location was in a very quite area but not too far to visit Gatlinburg a few times including a busy day at Dollywood - again the hot tub was a welocme site in the evenings!

1120 W Market St Taylorville, IL
Very relaxing, clean. Wish the pond didn't have so much algea. Location was wonderful.
I have always used Lucky's Cabin Rentals, when staying in the Pigeon Forge area, so when I decided to stay at this cabin, I had no doubts that it would be just as nice as all the others. My expectations were met and exceeded. This cabin was cozy and super fun! Cable, pool table and a pond, made us want to just stay there all day and never leave:) It was very nicely decorated and had all the things we needed to make our stay convenient, like an iron, coffee maker and all utensils. Thanks sooo much for the great job you do at providing top rated accommodation.
The trip was awesome. We had a wonderful time, especially hanging out in the hot tub! We made dreams to remember!! :-)
You can never go wrong with the fishing hole.
We always have a blast at the fishing hole.Its fully equiped with everything you need to have a good time. With a hot tub, fireplace, pool table, tv, and a great fishing spot it offers something for everyone. I highly recommend the fishing hole. Its a great place to relax and enjoy the mountains, with all the comforts of home. This cabin is well worth the trip!!

Special Memories That Last Forever
Celebrating our birthdays and anniversary in January never was as special as they were at "The Fishing Hole." What a perfect place! Beautiful mountain views, fishing off your dock,soaking in the hot tub with a bottle of wine from the bar, and even a game of pool in the sports room were all enjoyed. The fishing theme decor was in a class of it's own.Beautiful spiral staircase to the downstairs.Can't wait to come back.
Response from Lucky Dague - 02/04/2011
Billy and Donna,
Glad you were able to enjoy The Fishing Hole, and I look forward to your next visit to the mountains of Tennessee.
Great little getaway
The place is very very cozy. The fishing decor is great. If you like a woodburning fireplace rather than gas your in luck. The hottub and tv on the porch is a great idea. Little to cold to fish for long, but having the pond was fun for us. The only small draw back was the bed is in the living area. Other than that the place is great. We ran out of wood and the owner had more wood out right away!!
Amazing stay in Lucky Cabin's
Amazing nature, great stay, cleanest cabins ever, quiet place. definitive coming back next year again
Anniversary Weekend away
The stay was amazing. The cabin more than exceeded our expectations with it comfort, location, and coziness. We will be planning our next trip to the cabin!
Kingston Springs, TN
Serenity in Paradise
I love the mountains. Sometimes I think God made them just for me. I get the most peaceful feeling when I am there. I always call Lucky when I am planning a trip. I never have to worry about anythin. Once I make that first phone call I know that my wonderful vacation is about to begin. No worries until I arrive back home to the real world. It is great to know that I have his name on speed dial!
Went fishing everyday and found that they would bite on anything. Enjoyed the cool nights in the Hot Tub that is very private. Especially enjoyed the wood burning fireplace late in the evening when the sun went down.
Great location and easy to find.We had a blast can't wait to go again.
mountain romance escape
very beautiful quiet private and romantic very reasonable and near all locations of gatlin burg had a wonderful time and enjoyed th mountian secenery
Jeff and Lisa
The Fishin' Hole is the perfect Getaway. This was our fourth stay here and it was wonderful. The location is great, close to Pigeon Forge and Cades Cove but extremely private. We love to sit on the porch swing enjoy the beautiful view and the quiet nights (except those frogs!) Our walks around the neighborhood ponds are great. I have drag my husband away from the private pond, He will not leave as long as the fish are biting, and they are always biting.
Response from Lucky Dague - 01/26/2011
Thanks Lisa and we look forward to your 5th stay at The Fishing Hole.
Great Vacation Spot
We loved staying at the fishing hole. My kids enjoyed playing games and my husband love the fishing. He caught several blue gill. Thanks for a great vacation spot.
My favorite cabin!
Of all the cabins I have stayed in, the Fishing Hole has been my absolute favorite. The location is perfect as it's not far from Pigeon Forge or Townsend. Having the pond behind the cabin was wonderful! My dad and husband spent the majority of their time fishing. Too bad it rained most of the weekend! The layout of the cabin was perfect for us and we would love to stay there many more times!
My wife and I stayed in the fishin hole the decor was absolutely wonderful and the location and service were the best we have ever received!! We will always come back thanks lucky!!!
Not as we expected
The inside of the cabin was tastefully decorated however we felt like we were mislead...we got there and immediately got our children ready to visit the pool that was so talked about in the description and was turned away because we were not told that we had to pay for the pool. The owner adveritised a pool that he does not pay membership for...I feel like customers should not be advertised something that is not included. Also the yard was very grown up...the lawn had not been mowed in awhile and was finally mowed the day we left...the lake was awful,,,not at all what it looked like in the picture and there was a family of bats on the porch that looked as if they had been there for quite some time so we did not feel comfortable letting our children on the porch to play. I would not stay in this particular cabin again.
Amazingly beautiful and relaxing
This cabin is perfect for the couple looking for a relaxing quiet and very affordable getaway
Jamie & William
Our stay was Wonderful!! We would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway! It was wonderful serenity and just the relaxation we needed! We also loved the privacy! Thanks for a wonderful, relaxing getaway!
the most beautiful place in the moubtains
wonderful place to stay very romantic and decorated to fit the name of the resort enjoyed our stay and would go back again
Anniversary Weekend away
Our weekend at the Fishing Hole was amazing! The cabin is beautiful and very well maintained. This is our second trip to the cabin and just as last time we were not let down by the comfort, beauty, or relaxation offered at the cabin! Also, Lucky is very helpful and makes the accommodations as nice and memorable as possible. We will definitely be staying here again!
I stayed here right after the cabin was purchased by Lucky. I walked in and immediatley felt at home. The cabin was warm and clean and decorated with such pride. I have and will continue to recommend ":The Fishing Hole" if you are looking for a great retreat and the wow factor. My niece just married 12-2010 and this is where they spent their honeymoon. What does that say about how nice it is and will be back soon!!
Wow, we loved this place!
Very clean, decorations were themed and up-to-date. The porch is enclosed, private and you can watch tv while in the hottub. Didn't try fishing but we did feed them anyway.
The Finshing Hole - A++ vacation/retreat
The Fishing Hole - A++ vacation/retreat
The Fishing Hole has become our annual wedding anniversary retreat. We have fallen in love with the cabin and the surrounding area. The accomodations are excellent and well above what we have found in previous rentals. Lucky Dawg, the realtor , is very friendly, accomodating and strives to make your visit one you will not forget. We have stayed there for the past several years and have never disappointed. We highly reccommend The Fishing Hole
Loving TN vacations
Very nice and relaxing with pool nearby
We enjoyed this property very much. The only draw-back was the difficulty being able to get from the downstairs bedroom to the upstairs main floor. Stairs were tight and uncomfortable so we had to go around outside to get up stairs. The house was very clean and everything was in proper working condition unlike some of the other units we have rented in Pigeon Forge. The pond was a very relaxing place for the whole family to enjoy!
Unbelievable time in Tenn
My Friends and I were amazed at just the site of the cabin,sitting by the lake,it was simply beautiful,as if it were a postcard. The details inside the cabin was as remarkable as the outside. We loved our stay,and are planning another trip to the fishing Hole in Febuary 2011. We can't wait!! I would also like to take this time to applaud the owners(Jerry and Tamera Dague) for their commitment to making sure our stay was unbelievable.
We had a pleasant winter stay, with snow all around.
Spacious private cabin
The fishing hole cabin in Pigeon Forge was a fun cabin to stay in. Inside are wooden floors and walls, high ceilings, and a full kitchen with breakfast bar. There is a pool table, a bar and sofa in the lower level. Works well for extended family or teens. There is a screened in porch with a hot tub, wrap around deck and a fishing deck. The inside was very up to date and nicely decorated with fishing motif. However the exterior needed some updating. The screened in porch was missing some screens. The wood was very weathered. Around the pond could use trimming/landscaping. As far as location, it is close to pigeon forge, which may not be such a good thing if you want more seclusion, The pool is just across the street, which is nice for children and teens.
Best Time Ever!
We had such a great time. Spent a lot of time inside the cabin and enjoyed it so much. Did some fishing but too much of natures moss to really catch anything but other than that it was great.
Rock Hill, SC
My husband and I got married at this cabin on the pier. We wanted a private wedding. Lucky and his beautiful wife Tamera helped us to make it happen. We loved the cabin. It has everything you would need. Loved the privacy. We didn't do any sight seeing as it was our honeymoon ; ) , maybe next time. We recommended it to my aunt and Uncle who stayed there too with another couple, they loved it too.
The Perfect Place
My husband and I stayed at The Fishing Hole for our anniversary. It was wonderful! The view was perfect. Lucky was wonderful! Anything we needed all we had to do was ask. The cabin was easy to get to but far enough away to have privacy. I would highly recommend The Fishing Hole to everyone who wants a vacation in "the mountains" or just a nice get away.
Johnson City, TN
Excellent getaway cabin!
My husband and I love this cabin. He's an obsessive angler, so we get a nice getaway where he can fish without having to go very far (although these fish are really well fed and don't tend to take his bait). The cabin has more amenities than we can use, and we always feel refreshed after staying here.
I rate this place really high, but I only took away a couple of stars because if I'm paying a lot for something, I expect a lot (some people may not consider this place expensive, but on our budget it's a huge splurge). The location is good, but if you plan to spend much time running around in Pigeon Forge, it's a bit far out. It's not bad, but you wouldn't want to just "run to Kroger for a gallon of milk." It's really clean from floor to about 6' up. I don't think the cleaning crew ever looks up to clear away the cobwebs. But this is just me being super picky.
Bottom line is we've stayed here twice and plan to come back!
