*****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.

5 BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED BEDROOMS:

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.

SCREENED IN SLEEPING PORCH:

There is also a classic, breezy summer screened in sleeping porch with an antique 3/4 bed and sitting area.

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.

4 BATHROOMS:

1 modern two-person shower

2 claw footed tubs with showers

2 outdoor showers

OVERFLOWING WITH APPALACHIAN CULTURE AND HISTORY:

Built by the first American settlers to the region, each log was hand hewn. You will find early American chestnut walls and ceilings, vintage oak and heart pine floors, spinning wheels, hand-stitched textiles, church pews, butter churns, pie safes, cedar chests, and family antiques throughout, yet with all the amenities of plush modern living. The Pioneer is a living museum to Appalachian history.

About The Owner

We love the great outdoors. We enjoy good food and coming together around the large harvest table at the Pioneer. Tara grew up at the cabin with her Appalachian Granny, Fran Stalcup. Granny was known far and wide as Mountain Mama and she knew the mountains like the back of her hand.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004

Why The Owner chose Gatlinburg

When you rent this property you help keep the spirit of old Appalachia alive.

The Pioneer Trading Post was named after our family store originally located in Gatlinburg. The Hand-hewn cabin was built by early Scot Irish settlers with primitive tools.

The building techniques of the early American settlers has stood the test of time.

Each log is a work of art.

The cabin is going on 200 years old and it will stand another 200 years.

The Pioneer Trading Post is a living museum to a people, their unique way of life and their land.

What makes this cabin unique

Guests get to experience a glimmer of what life might have looked like during the early 1800's, but with all the comforts of modern living.

Guests get the pleasure of staying in a real home that was full of love and music.

You will feel right at home as soon as you walk in the door.

Staying at The Pioneer is having the best of both worlds. You have a lake shore vacation that is within easy driving distance of the mountains and all the action of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

You will have the entire secluded, 4 acre peninsula to yourself with unencumbered views of the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the perfect cabin for someone who appreciates authenticity and solitude. The property is beautiful. The cabin is a blend of rustic antiques and modern conveniences. It is spacious, yet cozy. The hosts are incredibly helpful and attentive. They have provided everything you will need for cooking as well as an abundance of linens. I travel often and this is the by far the best cabin I have visited. I highly recommend the cabin.

What a perfect paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family of seven stayed in this perfect Pioneer home for a couple of nights. We loved it. The beds were comfy and the home was large yet cozy. We loved all of the antiques and family pictures. The lake was beautiful with a spacious deck and luxurious hot tub. The home owner was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend it highly!!!

What an incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely perfect! This was the first time our family settled down and came together as a family in many years. It was to feel as if we took a step back in time and slowed down our pace in this turn of the century frontier home. Staying at the Pioneer Trading Post is like staying in an appalacian art museum.

There was plenty of room for our children to explore the trails around the cabin and we were right on the water's edge. Everything was perfect!
