Property description

Discounts for fellow law enforcement, nurses and teachers. Other specials include rent 6, get 7th night free. We have attempted to create a peaceful place for our family to vacation in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area, (Wears Valley) next to the Smokey Mountain National Park. I think we have been successful. This is our escape from our fast paced life in South Florida. We invite you to share our home and we hope you become a repeat guest.

The 'Gristmill Get-a-way', is a beautifully decorated, 2100 square feet, three bedroom/three bath log cabin located in an upscale community at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Plenty of stuff to do in the house, but we encourage you to use this as your base, to explore everything the area has to see, and there is truly something for everyone.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We would love to invite you to be our guests in our vacation home. Ours is not a typical cookie cutter rental property with outdated decorations, bought by someone as an investment. Our guests are encouraged to call me on my cell phone 24/7 for anything from roadside service or to report a light bulb being out. I am originally from Oak Ridge, Tennessee and we live in South Florida. We built this cabin in 2004 and realized we could only visit 3-4 times a year so we decided to share our home with others. I am a retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer and my wife is a Nurse Practioner, so we decided to give discounts, to first responders and nurses, along with teachers. (who needs a bigger break than teachers?) We love to travel and the picture of our family was taken in Summer of 2011 in Banff, Canada.

Why the Owner Chose Pigeon Forge:
Our cabin is located in Wears Valley, just about 20 minutes from Dollywood, in an upscale neighborhood named 'The Homestead.' We are just far enough away from the hussle/bussle of Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg,(plenty of discount shopping and people watching) yet close enough if I want to go into town. Also, we are just about 20 minutes from Cades Cove, which is a must for any visitor. Our cabin is on a cul-de-sac with only one other house within site, (all houses are on 1.5 acres or more) making it very, very peaceful. One of the main reasons we picked our lot in the Homestead is the road`s are very gentle sloping and wide two lanes, making the drive to our cabin feel very safe. The Homestead also has its own hiking and nature trails.
