Lil Dalaiwood is a beautiful 2 story log cabin located in the Shagbark Community which is a private, gated community and animal sanctuary. This 1300 acre resort offers an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court with a basketball goal, meadow (for picnics, ball games or chipping golf balls), creeks and some amazing mountain views. This special private retreat is only minutes to restaurants and all the activities of Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg or the Smoky Mountains National Park. There is a 24/7 manned security gate which offers you security and privacy.

Lil' Dalai Wood has 3 bedrooms. - One KING bed in the master downstairs; queen in the second bedroom downstairs. In the loft, there is a set of bunk beds and another king bed. There is a POOL TABLE for your enjoyment in the Great Room, and queen sofa sleeper as an additional sleeping option. The cabin has all the luxuries of home, whether you are relaxing by the GAS FIREPLACE or on the LARGE DECK outside with SWING, casual furniture and the HOT TUB. It offers a beautiful view of the mountains. There is a video library for rainy days or late nights and comfy furniture. I hope your stay is so wonderful, you'll want to visit again.

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!

Truly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. We plan on making this an annual return back to the mountains .

Loved the view from the deck and hot tub!

We were really hoping to see a bear run up the mountain, maybe on our next trip!

We enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen and entertainment.

Thank you

See you next year

Well kept, spacious cabin with great views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Lil Dalaiwood. It was spacious for 4 adults and 2 kids, but could easily have accommodated more. The kids enjoyed the pool, foosball tables. The views were beautiful and the cabin quite private. Its a short, easy drive to Pigeon Forge that has plenty of activities for the entire family.

Fun place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this past weekend and it was a very nice place. Unbelievably clean. We are picky in that area and we were impressed. We enjoyed the pool table, hot tub on the porch, and foosball table. (although some of the sticks on the table were hard to move). Would definitely stay again. Great tvs and very nice cabin. Up high on the hill.

Cozy cabin for a big family

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Lil Dalaiwood. It was peaceful and away from the busyness of town. We were thrilled to see a bear. Remember to bring your own dish & laundry detergent. They provide a few, but not enough for a long stay. Our family of 8 enjoyed the space greatly. The fooseball table & pool table were in need a few minor repairs, but we're still playable & lots of fun.

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.
