About Nan

I am so pleased that you are considering a visit in my home, Lil' Dalai Wood. Lil' Dalaiwood was home for several years before it became a full time rental. I have tried to make Lil' DalaiWood as cozy and comfortable as possible so that you will enjoy your visit. I welcome and appreciate feedback on-line or in our guest book. I also love to hear and/or read about the memories that guests are creating with their friends and families. I wish you treasured memories, and perhaps returning again-starting a family tradition. Bright Blessings Always to you and your family from Nan and Lil Dalai

Why Nan chose East

I hope that my home in the Shagbark community is attractive to you. It is a beautiful (24 hour manned) gated community with forest between cabins, several mountain ridges. There are beautiful woodlands, meadow and creeks throughout these foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Yet, it is close to the many exciting attractions and a wealth of shopping opportunities on the Parkway to include a Starbucks at the local Kroger (if you are a Starbucks fan) within approximately 10-15 mins from the cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

Shagbark is a private gated community only a 10-15 minute short scenic drive from the Pigeon Forge Parkway on 4-lane Wears Valley Road to the Pigeon Forge City Limits then right on Waldens Creek Road and minutes more to Gatlinburg, Townsend, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The community has about 1300 acres with creeks, meadows, woodlands, foothill ridges and spectacular mountain views. The minute you enter, the mountains wrap around and above you to surround you in Appalachian ambiance, and from here you can easily get to Gatlinburg, TN, Cades Cove, Dollywood, Townsend, the Pigeon Forge Malls, the Ripley's Aquarium and more in under an hour of travel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our time in your cabin. Most of our party have ATT cell service, therefore we didn't have service, but actually that was a nice change, not hearing from work. We had some quality time with our teenagers, young adults! That's why we came to celebrate their graduation. Thank you for the great place to stay, we loved it.

Great cabin! Fun trip for all!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Lil Dalaiwood!! It's a beautiful cabin, furnished with everything you need. We had 4 adults and 5 teenagers; the kids loved the pool table and hanging out together in the loft. We didn't see the momma bear, but noticed she had obviously been trying to get in the hot tub!! The location is perfect for the short drive into Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We'll definitely contact Nancy if we decide to visit the area again!

Fun Getaway

  • 5 of 5

As a family we had a ball. We loved the privacy and the beauty of the area, but we were close enough to the towns that my grandchild (and adult children) could enjoy the rides and activities. We were limited in walking and hiking the forest because we were on the side of a mountain slope, but we saw plenty when we drove (flowering plants, trees, rock formations, and beautiful streams). My husband learned to play pool with the help of my son while in the cabin. The cabin was comfortable and clean. The owner did exactly what she said she would do. We hope we can return there !

Owner's Response: I recall getting a text during the stay that the cabin wasn't as clean as preferred. I responded as soon as message came through to me--offered to have cleaners come and meet guests, to hear specifics and to clean whatever wasn't acceptable. Guests said no, female in the party had already cleaned. I still notified the cleaners to be more watchful, in case they had missed something. (With mountain living, white glove tests are not realistic.) As a general rule, my cleaners have gone above and beyond to try and keep the cabin clean. The cleaners are a family, locals who despite their own home was a total loss in the recent fires--they never stopped working hard. They had even cleaned ceiling fans, just before these guests checked in. Regardless, the guests were not pleased in this case. I feel I offered what I could. I am pleased that guests were happy with their stay--overall.

Shagbark is a 24 hour manned-gated community, within 10-15 mins from light number 3 in Pigeon Forge-off Wears Valley Rd. (The Island, Kroger, Walden's Landing shopping area with Forge Cinemas, Red Roof Mall and various other attractions are around light #3 in Pigeon Forge.)

4X4 or AWD recommended for inexperienced mountain drivers, especially in winter months.
