*****A LAKE AND MOUNTAIN VACATION*****
Just a short drive to all the attractions in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the National park. The Pioneer Trading Post is a historic, turn of the century frontier home located on Douglas lake in Sevierville, Tn. The location is just 20 minutes from Dollywood and only 30 minutes from Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and the Smokey Mountain National Park.
The Pioneer Trading Post is a historic location and a destination in and of itself. The Pioneer was built by the first American settlers, the Scotch Irish. Their craftsmanship has stood the test of time. The Pioneer Trading Post is 200 years old and will stand enough 200 years. Originally a homestead and then the families country store, it has been lovingly maintained by the original family descendants. The home is filled with beautiful antiques, hand-stitched quilts and the totem pole, which was made for our grandfather by his dear friend Blue Cloud, of the Cherokee Nation. The home is decorated with reverence for Appalachian culture.

Each room has its own special charm and appeal. You will find 100% cotton sheets, feather pillows, authentic hand stitched quilts, and rustic, vintage touches for the feel you only get at Granny’s house.

YOU'LL HAVE A 4-ACRE PRIVATE PENINSULA TO YOURSELF!
Parents can relax knowing their kids are always within ear-shot on the 4-acre gentle sloping knoll overlooking the lake. Our grassy front and side yard, with swings, rustic log seating, camping platform, which are great for gatherings and games. The wooded pathways, landscaped hillside garden, and shoreline are fun to explore and enjoy. It's a beautiful haven where you can truly feel away from it all.
PLEASE NOTE : This is a TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) dam controlled lake. Levels fall slowly beginning in September and fully rise again in April. The winter lake levels are dependent on rainfall and TVA's whim (See TVA website for current levels). The summer levels stay consistently at their highest, and are easily deep enough for fishing, swimming, and docking a boat. The winter lake level will create a wide, firm, sandy shoreline that's great for long walks, crystal/arrowhead hunting, and fishing.
