About the property

Peaceful and Private – Snail's Pace Chalet – Pigeon Forge TN

Quiet, Peaceful, Private. Two large master suites + 2 loft bedrooms - private bathroom with each and two with indoor Jacuzzi tubs. Three levels of living space make this home Spacious and Comfortable. Two gas fireplaces, TVs and VCRs in every room, Air Hockey, Outdoor Hot Tub, Large Gas Grill. Everything you could possibly need in our well-stocked kitchen and baths.

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 Stephanie Reese

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.

Stephanie Reese purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Stephanie Reese chose Sevierville

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Snails Pace is amazing! Gorgeous Cabin with spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this vacation rental. Perfect for large families - the house has everything and hs plenty of room. The living areas in the lower level and main floor are very spacious. The views from all 3 levels are breathtaking. All bedrooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms are large and have many luxuries. Snails Pace has it all and is close to Pigoen Forge, Gatlinburg and The Great Smokey National Park - perfect location!

Chalet was all that was promised !

  • 5 of 5

Chalet & property was beautiful. The fireplaces, kitchen, family spaces, bathrooms, hot-tub, TV's etc...all as reflected in the profile. We had 8 adults, a 4yr & 8 yr old and we had plenty of room and a beautiful sunset thanksgiving dinner with a beautiful view!. AT&T cell service was weak/spotty at best, WiFi was reasonably steady.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Seven friends stayed in this beautiful home this past week and we had a wonderful time. The home is exactly as shown in the pictures. It was so nice to be away from the hustle and bustle and still close enough to see and do everything you wanted to do. We would love to return sometime.

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was tremendous! The home was spacious and gave everyone private space;yet the common areas gave kids and adults plenty of space to talk and enjoy activities together. The home was clean and well equipped. Stephanie was helpful and everything was exactly as indicated. We would go back again and highly recommend this home for your next vacation!
