Property description

'Once Upon a Dream' is a beautiful and PRIVATELY situated 2 bedroom, 2 bath cabin in the gorgeous Douglas Lake Resort community of Sevierville, Tennessee - 20 minutes from Dollywood / Dollywood Splash Country and the town centers of Pigeon Forge and Sevierville, and only 30 minutes from Gatlinburg! Enjoy the amenities of the resort, including a private boat launch, fishing docks, paved walking trails, swimming pool, playground, wildlife observation decks and more! You can unwind at the cabin by playing pool or ping-pong in the loft, rocking in the rocking chairs, playing games on the Wii (see list of games below), enjoying the tremendouse views, listening to the birds, or relaxing in the large hot tub! Two queen sleeper sofas (one downstairs and one in the loft) will accommodate smaller guests, while the masters of the house can enjoy a king size bed! Everyone can take pleasure in the fireplace on cold nights! Douglas Lake is a hot spot for fishing, skiing, and swimming, and the cabin’s proximity to all the Smokies has to offer is hard to compare! So bring your sweetheart, and/or the kids and come make the memories of a lifetime!

TAKE NOTE: at ONCE UPON A DREAM, you have both a beautiful lake AND the mountains! Also, the cabin is not squeezed closely beside other cabins, like you would find in many 'resorts.' Douglas Lake Resort has a neighborhood atmosphere with loads of beautiful trees, and 'Once Upon a Dream' has a BREATHTAKING MOUNTAIN VIEW from the front porch. You will have a 'MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE' not just a 'CABIN EXPERIENCE.'

*A Verizon WiFi Hot Spot is provided for our visitors.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Todd and Sonya Stearns reside in Naples, Florida, about 10 minutes from the beach. Dr. Stearns is the Associate Pastor of Worship at the First Baptist Church of Naples, and Sonya is the critical thinking and speech teacher at First Baptist Academy. Both earned Bachelor of Arts Degrees from the University of Mobile, in Mobile, Alabama. Todd completed his Masters in Divinity at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas, and earned his Doctorate of Ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. They have three children, Victoria, 19, Christiana, 16, William, 14, and 2 beloved 'babies' (pomeranians), Tiffany and Raffiki.

Why the Owner Chose Sevierville:
'Once Upon a Dream' is the fruition of a 20+ year dream. After honeymooning in Gatlinburg in 1988, we vacationed in Pigeon Forge andsurrounding area whenever we could, discovering Douglas Lake in 2000. Through God's unexpected blessing and provision, we have been able to purchase this, our 'cabin in the woods' - named for the theme song from the timeless Disney Classic, Sleeping Beauty. We love to relax in the rockers and have our morning coffee, but we also love the hustle and bustle of the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge dining, shopping, recreation, and shows. 'Once Upon a Dream' allows for both. Since we live in sandy and flat southwest Florida, the mountain surroundings are a thrilling change! We delight in the magnificent variety of God's creation. We purchased THIS PARTICULAR cabin because of its tremendous DUAL VIEWS of both DOUGLAS LAKE and the SMOKY MOUNTAINS.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
THE VIEW from the front porch is 'to die for.' Having another view from the loft - one of the lake - is very unique! Although our cabin is part of a neighborhood, OUR PROPERTY feels very private, with trees giving us a boundary between our nearest neighbor. The Douglas Lake Resort community's amenities (boat launch, fishing docks and boardwalk, paved walking trails, playground, firepit, pool) mixed with its close proximity to all the activities of Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville can't be beat.
