Property description


For peace and quiet come to Sassafras Lodge. But if you want to 'see the sights' the Lodge is conveniently located just minutes from Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, and very close to the Arts & Crafts Community.

Sassafras Lodge was constructed in 2007/08 as our second home with our own comfort and mountain living interests in mind. The Lodge is a authentic log house built with squared hewn timbers, mortised and chinked and is architecturally accurate for the locality of the Southern Highlands in the time period of the 1890's to early 1900's. Sassafras Lodge is furnished and decorated in accordance with that period utilizing items reflecting our life long interest in early Americana and with period antiques, art works and our other interior furnishings and collectibles . However, the Lodge is also fully equipped with all the modern living conveniences, including WiFi Internet Access! Please enjoy our unique home and our local nature library, nature paths and forest friends.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: The Fairley family's permanent home is in south Florida. The family includes Martin & Debbie and Scooter (Martin shown here in Taos, NM). Sassafras Lodge is our second home which we delight in sharing with you.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Stoplight 3A:
When we're not in our home in southwest Florida we're here in our second home in the Smoky Mountains. We both have New England roots and while Florida weather is great, we missed the four seasons! When we found our 'dream' parcel of land with 'seclusion but close in to town' we took the plunge and built, not one but two, dream log homes. When we're not here you are most welcome to enjoy Sassafras Lodge or it's twin Trillium Lodge yourselves!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Located between Gatlinburg and Pittman Center, we're just minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg and the Arts & Crafts Center. We are on a loop road without through traffic. We are fairly secluded and can only see other cabins at a distance.
