Snail’s Pace was built in 2007 atop Hickory Ridge and overlooking Bluff Mountain. It is located inside Shagbark, a gated 1300 acre nature preserve. The cathedral tongue and groove ceiling gives the home a unique feeling of spaciousness. The 10-foot ceilings throughout the remainder of the house continue that feeling. All of the woodworking was handcrafted by the home’s builder.
As remote as our vacation home is, it’s amazingly close to all of the fun, shopping, and entertainment of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Area attractions are virtually endless with something for just about every taste. Dollywood is only 8 miles from Snail’s Pace and it’s but a 20-minute drive to the Smokey Mountain National Park.

About the owner: Paul and Stephanie live in Atlanta. Stephanie is originally from Kentucky and used Pigeon Forge as a likely half way point to meet family. They both love Bluegrass music and are always looking for festivals or just street musicians in Gatlinburg. Paul likes cars and enjoys the rod runs along the Parkway.
Why the Owner Chose Sevierville, TN, USA:
Years before building Snail's Pace, we rented a friend's home in Shagbark and fell in love with the area. Every time we came back we looked for a vacation home to buy. Never finding quite what we were looking for, we decided to buy a piece of land and build instead. Our builder was well known in Shagbark so we waited until he finished a $1M + custom home to have him start ours. He was truly a craftsman, as can be seen from the work he did on Snail's Pace. The tongue-and-groove cathedral ceiling is gorgeous. All of the woodwork and crown molding were hand-crafted.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Snail's Pace is an oasis where the hectic, fast-paced life can be left at the doorstep. As soon as you step over the threshold and into the game room you can feel the tension ease out of your body. When you first catch site of the cathedral ceiling and wall of windows overlooking Bluff Mountain from the second story you will let out a 'Wow'. Climb the stairs to the third floor and look down on the great room from the loft and feel the spaciousness of the house.
