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.'

*Wifi is provided for our visitors.

Worth, Texas, and earned his Doctorate of Ministry from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

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.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin to stay in... we have stayed in several in the resort and enjoyed this one as much as any... There are a lot of stairs so make sure everyone in your group can handle that but otherwise very clean and well stocked!

Owner's Response: Thanks Lucas! Yes - we have the stairs to the front door - which makes our cabin feel like a tree-house, and gives us the views that we so enjoy! Please come again!

More than expected

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, well decorated and had all the amenities for our stay. Sonya is awesome! She was so accommodating, especially since this was our first experience using VRBO. The location gave a distant view of the water from the upper deck, and quiet relaxing view from the porch swing. Our adult kids loved using the hot tub and pool table. Highly recommend, and hope to go again.

Beautiful cabin, very clean, tastefully decorated, and cozy.

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for beauty and serene privacy, this cabin is for you. It is a good ways off the beaten path , so don't forget the milk! I imagine that during the summer months, it's probably not as quiet and private as it is in March. Will most definetley reccommend this cabin if you are looking for an escape from city life. Thank you Stearn family for Once upon a Dream get-a-way cabin.
