                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About: 'Keep Smiling Deer' is my special family getaway. We live in Kentucky and come to Shagbark in the Smokies for our recharing time.

                  Why Pigeon Forge:
                  I like the secure privacy offered by Shagbark with the 24/7 manned security gate. I also love the large wooded lots that allow for privacy at the cabin.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  You have the privacy of the Townsend area only minutes from all the activities of Pigeon Forge - great shopping, eating, hiking or entertainment.
