About the Property
Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6)
CATCH & RELEASE is located on 4 SECLUDED, CREEKSIDE, WOODED acres in a gated community. We are one minute from our clubhouse, swimming pool and tennis court. This cabin has WIRELESS HIGH SPEED INTERNET, 2 fireplaces, 2 KING bedrooms each with TV & DVD and separate receivers, 1 QUEEN bedroom with private bath, and 2 newly renovated bathrooms. All linens and kitchen towels are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking family meals. The loft has a POOL TABLE, which has views of the flat screen TV in the living room and the pond. There is a good selection of board games; Checkers, Chess, Apples to Apples, and Backgammon for those rainy days or fun nights. We have a 40 DVD movie collection for those days our guests want to just hang out at Catch & Release. We will be adding to it each season.
The dramatic 30’ vaulted rock fireplace wall has a 42' FLAT SCREEN TV with SURROUND SOUND and DVD. The new THEATER/FAMILY/GAME room has a 48” FLAT SCREEN TV and DVD, bamboo hardwood floors, Foosball table, glass walls looking into the fishing pond and the backyard creek, and all leather furniture. The new 5 ton zoned Air Conditioning and Heating system is energy efficient and meets government specifications for GREEN buildings. Our new bathroom products are from Concept Amenities, an Australian soap company whose soaps are in 5 star European hotels. The bath gel, bar soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion are biodegradable and environmentally sensitive. We love our environment and know that you do too. This is why you come to the Smoky Mountains.
The creek runs under the house into a large FISHING POND in the front yard, which has Goldfish, Catfish, and Brim. You can fish from the front deck in the stocked pond. Please bring your fishing poles. We request that you CATCH & RELEASE ONLY.
The pond fountain automatically turns on for your morning coffee and turns off in the evening. We turn it off in the winter months. The CREEKSIDE HOT TUB is in the moss covered backyard and under a COVERED TRELLIS in case of rain. The Hot Tub is emptied and refilled prior to each guest arrival in accordance with the Tennessee Department of Health Regulations. This is the most peaceful vacation home you will ever visit. It is tucked amongst the trees and early in the morning WILD TURKEYS come to drink at the edge of the pond.
There are new bamboo floors, slate counter tops, new appliances, new carpet, new washer-dryer, and amazing landscaping in the front yard with a dry creek bed in stone, large boulders, and a RESIDENT TURTLE. The RACCOONS love Oreo cookies. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILIES. KIDS LOVE IT!!!
WE ARE 8 MINUTES FROM THE CENTER OF PIGEON FORGE, 20 MINUTES FROM DOLLYWOOD, AND 25 MINUTES FROM GATLINBURG!

Stage 4 Breast Cancer is a family disease, affecting each member and every aspect of their life; including relationships, finances, career & school performance, and their shared quality time. LESLIE'S WEEK is a time of Fun & Happiness!
The private Shagbark Community HOA resolved on May 16, 2014 to become the Home Base for LESLIE’S WEEK.

See their official PROCLAMATIONS on our web site www.lesliesweek.org.
Stage 4 Breast Cancer families need a safe haven from the pressures of dealing with and fighting this deadly disease. They need the opportunity to build MEMORIES that OUTLAST CANCER. LESLIE’S WEEK Mission is to give these mothers a reason to rejoice about TODAY and TOMORROW by providing Fun & Happiness for families TODAY and offering each LESLIE’S WEEK child participant educational assistance in the name of their mother toward the degree or vocation of their choice to help create a better TOMORROW.

About the owner: I am an interior designer and writer with published books. Catch & Release is a work in progress for me as I continue to change the interiors and update the amenities. Because I am in the design industry I continually buy new products for Catch & Release. It is a place of serenity and peace surrounded by nature, small critters and the changing seasons.
Why the Owner Chose Sevierville, TN, USA:
Catch & Release is within an 8 hour or less driving distance of 80% of the US population. It is easy to get to via the interstate road systems. My cottage is located in a gated community whose 24 hour manned security center is there to log you in, provide directions, answer questions and provide assistance to you and your family. Even though it is secluded in the mountains it is within 10 minutes of the center of all the activity in the Smoky Mountains. There is Dollywood, 4 golf courses, fishing, winter skiing in Gatlinburg, outlet shopping, a variety of kid entertainment and rides, and many affordable restaurants. There is no place like it and it is a wonderful place to have a family vacation. When you drive into Pigeon Forge the Welcome Center has free coupons to offer each traveler so they may take advantage of the many discounts offered to families.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Catch & Release is built over a creek which feeds into a fishing pond with a fountain in the front yard. The cottage sits on 4 acres and is surrounded by a forest, whose small critters come by to inspect the guests from time to time. The mornings are wonderful when the fountain comes on. You sit and drink your coffee and listen to the soft sound of the splashing water. If you are looking for interior comfort, an immaculate property, serenity, comfort and activity beyond your dreams - Catch & Release is the place to find it. We upgrade the interiors every year so it will be different every time you return! Come on over!
