About the owner: My dream was to own a cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains. I have been visiting GSM since late 60's. My husband and I purchased the cabin and love visiting Hunker Down.
In February 2014 we purchased property in Tellico Plains, which is still part of the Great Smoky Mountains. It is our goal to begin building cabins in 2015.
Why the Owner Chose Pigeon Forge: We love the location and close to everything. We purchased this cabin because the property had room to enjoy as it is not on top of another cabin. Another plus was it is not hanging over a cliff. The yard is large and plenty of room for the kids to play. The street has five cabins on it but each property is over 1/2 acre and we own up the back of the mountain. There are no cabins directly in front.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: We love to sit on the porch at the pub table and relax. We enjoy both the summer and winter view of the mountain, the quietness of the area and relaxing.
