          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2002

          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Stoplight 5:
          We bought this property as our personal residence and have lived in it for several years. It has three great features. (1) Not only does it have marvelous views of the mountains, but also parts of downtown Gatlinburg. (2) Its location allows quick access to Gatlinburg -- just a four minute drive down the street. (At the bottom of our street is a parking garage next to Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies.) You can by-pass heavy traffic in Gatlinburg by taking nearby Campbell Lead Road to the Gatlinburg by-pass. From here, you can travel to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or into Pigeon Forge. The Park is just 10-minutes from our property and Pigeon Forge is only 15-minutes away. (3) It has a HUGE flat yard in the back that is perfect for playing catch. With three young sons, a flat yard is vital.

          The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
          One of the few properties with huge flat backyard , panoramic mountain views, close to downtown, with hot tub AND outdoor swimspa, and 5 inside jacuzzis, Large gameroom and a kid's secret hideout and secret passageways
