              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: It's East Tennessee's best kept secret. As a writer, I find this place to be a perfect setting for photographers and writers. Great place to spend your honeymoon or relax all day on the deck. Simply breathtaking in Spring and Fall. I never want to leave, but I have to make it available to you. We speak Spanish and Polish.

              Why the Owner Chose Pigeon Forge:
              Cottage on the Pond is a delightful elegant rustic cottage. One of a kind property for nature lovers and those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Perfect place to write a book or take a sabatical. Honeymooners love it for privacy. Seniors never want to go home. Singles come back because of the convenient location to town. People of Faith enjoy the serenity. And there's never any traffic. Always decorated for the season.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The cottage is part of Lydia's Land which is now recognized as a Habitat for Animals by the Wildlife Federation. The property has 2.1 acres with a pond and creek. Enjoy the wildlife passing by daily. Birds, ducks, geese, deer, raccoons, rabbitts, hedgehogs, possums and others I can't tell you about. You'll just have to come out and see for yourselves. Great back roads and quick access to the city. Decorated for the holidays. Lydia's Old Treasure Chest (Gift & Thrift Store with snacks) is next door. Guests receive 10% off purchases over $5.00. Welcome baskets are available for a small fee which include water, soda, cookies, postcards and candy.
