Overview

About the property

The charm of an original farmhouse on Walden's Creek; 5 min to Pigeon Forge!

Our newest property, Cottage by the Creek, is directly on Walden's Creek with our porch only feet from it. It is private, peaceful and plenty of wildlife comes by early in the morning for a drink. It is shallow enough to wade in the creek and hunt for crawdads and small fish and you can relax to the sound of a babbling brook right outside the back door. The home is a farmhouse that was located years ago to this property and we have completely renovated it. It is cozy and as peaceful inside as it is outside. We have added large windows across the back to be able to see the view from both the back bedroom and the living/dining area. It feels like you are entering a secret cottage tucked away in the trees and yet, you are only minutes from Pigeon Forge at the Wears Valley/Parkway intersection. It could not be more convenient to the activities in the area. The cottage is all one level so no stairs to deal with and we have a yard for the kids or dogs to play in. We are pet friendly at this home - who doesn't want to romp in the creek with their furry companion?

We hope our newest addition to our rental properties will delight our guests. It has been a lot of work and we feel like we should have a fixer upper show but it has been worth it to see the cottage literally come alive with the vision we had when we first walked in. Enjoy!

About June Barbas

This is our 4th property. Rick and I seem to have a knack for the vacation business - most likely because we love to travel ourselves and we grab ideas from literally every place we stay. We keep adding these ideas to our properties and the feedback from our guests is they have never stayed somewhere with as many amenities they can actually use. We don't scrimp on the kitchen - we cook when we travel so I put everything in there I would want in cookware quality, spices, gadgets. We have lots of kids and grand kids so we try to add things that children like as well. So fun! We think we are big kids ourselves and like to stay that way. Experiences mean more to us than things so the properties we have are for making memories that last. We very much want our guests to have that special getaway and to make it as perfect as we possibly can.

Why June Barbas chose Sevierville

I fell in love with the creek being right there off the back porch. Listening to it in the early morning is so peaceful that Rick and I decided this would be a place we would want to have in retirement. The original farmhouse was a complete renovation with some nice surprises along the way like the original wood ceilings. We felt the investment was worth it. We are just minutes from the parkway, groceries, etc. but it feels like we are off in the quiet woods when we are home. We want to share this with others and make it full family friendly so the dogs can come too and enjoy wading in the creek. This is not a traditional log cabin like all the others; it is a unique cottage, warm and inviting in every way.

What makes this cottage unique

The backyard with the creek is the obvious highlight of Cottage by the Creek and we built a large fire pit to burn real wood - feels like you are camping. When we renovated, we worked to bring the outside in as much as possible. The back bedroom is now double in size to include a King bed and sitting area for games and TV but also to see the outdoors - I put a large picture window in so it feels like you are outside. The wood in the home is original and quite beautiful. We made the decor like a rustic farmhouse with some nods to our black bear community! It is super comfortable! The kitchen is large and has a line of sight right into the living area. The front yard is large and flat - perfect for your furry companions to enjoy and I have a badmitton set for fun! If you love watching birds, we have many varieties on the creek. Cardinals, finches, woodpeckers, geese, duck, egrets, turkeys have all been seen...look for the egret in the early morning. He is spectacular.
