*****A LAKE AND MOUNTAIN VACATION!*****

PLEASE VIEW VIDEO AT BOTTOM OF PAGE UNDER CALENDAR

You have found a spacious and lovingly decorated log cabin on beautiful Douglas Lake. The Pioneer offers the best of both worlds: a lake AND mountain vacation!

Stay at the beautifully appointed Pioneer Trading Post, located just 20 minutes from Dollywood and only 30 minutes from Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and the Smokey Mountain National Park.

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, and firepit are great for gatherings and games. The wooded pathways, landscaped hillside garden, and long 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 Heidi Ladlee: Reservations Manager

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.

Heidi Ladlee: Reservations Manager purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Heidi Ladlee: Reservations Manager chose Sevierville

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

Thank you for letting us spend our parents 50th Wedding Anniversary at the Pioneer Trading Post. You can feel the history, culture, and warmth that your Granny you and your family have put into the cabin! We shared a lot of time cooking, hanging out on the deck, in the hot tub and down by the dock. There is so much to explore here inside and out! We definitely want to come back! Indianapolis, IN

Awesome Cabin on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. It had all the conviences we needed. The cabin was well appointed and a fun place to stay. The owner and agent were very responsive to the few questions we had. The neighbor's dogs were daily visitors and we completely enjoyed them.

Beauty abounds

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the cabin is wonderful and we completely loved our stay here. The lighting wasn't as bright as we would have liked but there really isn't anything that can take away from this perfect stay. The water levels were perfect so we were able to enjoy our boats and the lake. And Dixie the dog was an added bonus. I wanted to take her home with us! I'd definitely recommend this cabin to one and all!!

Beautiful property with comfortable beds and lake access. We enjoyed the common areas

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we wanted. Loved the decks and outside spaces. We struggled with the convection oven and never figured it out in either mode. Lots of towels, ceiling fans, washer dryer, loaner cooler, house is set up for all you could need. Comes with a very sweet neighborhood dog that visits everyday.
