Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath, full log cabin with mountain and lake views.

'Once Upon a Dream' is a beautiful, PRIVATELY situated 2 bedroom, 2 bath cabin in the gorgeous Douglas Lake Resort community of Sevierville, Tennessee - 20 minutes from Dollywood / Dollywood Splash Country, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville, and only 35 minutes from Gatlinburg! Enjoy the amenities of the resort, including a private boat launch, fishing docks, paved walking trails, swimming pool, playground, wildlife observation decks and more! You can unwind at the cabin by playing pool or ping-pong in the loft, rocking in the rocking chairs, playing games on the Wii or Xbox (see list of games below), enjoying the tremendous views, listening to the birds, or relaxing in the large hot tub! Two queen sleeper sofas (both downstairs) and a new trundle bed in the loft will accommodate smaller guests, while the masters of the house can enjoy a king size bed! Everyone can take pleasure in the fireplace on cold nights! Douglas Lake is a hot spot for fishing, skiing, and swimming, and the cabin’s proximity to all the Smokies has to offer is hard to compare! So bring your sweetheart, and/or the kids and come make the memories of a lifetime!

TAKE NOTE: at ONCE UPON A DREAM, you can enjoy both a beautiful lake AND the mountains! Also, the cabin is not squeezed right beside other cabins, like you would find in many 'resorts.' Douglas Lake Resort has a neighborhood atmosphere with loads of beautiful trees, and 'Once Upon a Dream' has a BREATHTAKING MOUNTAIN VIEW from the front porch. You will have a 'MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE' not just a 'CABIN EXPERIENCE.'

*FREE Wifi is provided for our visitors.

Sonya Stearns purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Sonya Stearns chose East

'Once Upon a Dream' is the fruition of a 20+ year dream. After honeymooning in Gatlinburg in 1988, we vacationed in Pigeon Forge and surrounding area whenever we could, discovering Douglas Lake in 2000. Through God's unexpected blessing and provision, we have been able to purchase this, our 'cabin in the woods' - named for the theme song from the timeless Disney Classic, Sleeping Beauty. We love to relax in the rockers or swing and have our morning coffee, but we also love the hustle and bustle of the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge dining, shopping, recreation, and shows. 'Once Upon a Dream' allows for both. Since we live in sandy and flat southwest Florida, the mountain surroundings are a thrilling change! We delight in the magnificent variety of God's creation.

We purchased THIS PARTICULAR cabin because of its tremendous DUAL VIEWS of both DOUGLAS LAKE and the SMOKY MOUNTAINS.

What makes this cabin unique

THE VIEW from the front porch is 'to die for.' Having another view from the loft - a distant one of the lake - is very unique! Although our cabin is part of a neighborhood, OUR PROPERTY feels very private, with trees giving us a boundary between our nearest neighbor. The Douglas Lake Resort community's amenities (boat launch, fishing docks and boardwalk, paved walking trails, playground, firepit, pool) mixed with its close proximity to all the activities of Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville can't be beat.

Living the Dream

  • 5 of 5

We had several cabins for a small family reunion. This is the cabin where we all united! The kids loved the wii and played pool, but especially became hooked on the ping pong table! I am the early riser.....I would wake up at 6 am, fix my coffee and sit on the swing, on the deck looking at the beautiful views! I had 2-3 hours of this amazing peace every morning! Everything about this cabin was perfect for us! We enjoyed hiking to the waterfalls, the "touristy" things to do in Gaitlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We rented a pontoon and fishing boats for a wonderful day on Douglas Lake, fishing and tubing! Our last night everyone participated in a ping pong tournament and returned to our cabins to enjoy our hot tubs on the deck and get some packing done! It was an amazing mini vacation and this cabin made dreams come true!

Owner's Response: This is awesome! Thank you for your thoughtfulness. What a smart and affordable way to have a meaningful family reunion. Memories forever! We came right after you - to escape Irma. We installed a new over-the-counter microwave and cleared a few trees in front to make our place even more "dreamy." I really hope you all can return. Sonya

Awesome place to stay! Cabin was just what we imagined and looked just like the pictures. Great view, and minutes from the lake and pool area. Would stay again for sure.

Beautiful cabin and area. My family and I enjoyed it tremendously. Close enough to everything but far enough away that you don´t feel crowded. Thanks for sharing your second home with my family.

The cabin was clean, beautifully and comfortably decorated, and had an amazing view of the mountain.

  • 5 of 5

We loved being so close to the lake where we canoed, and we chose to prepare all our own meals and eat on the deck of the cabin to enjoy the incredible view! It was a wonderfully peaceful weekend.

Owner's Response: Preparing your meals at the cabin is a $ saver. Plus - it's usually healthier! The crock-pot is an easy option if you want to venture out for the day. We love the porch, too. It's so relaxing, especially if you're used to "city life." Thanks for your kind review! Sonya
