About the Property
Ideal For 4; Wraparound Deck, Sunset Views, HDTV/WiFi/Phone
Close to the towns of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, and convenient to all the outdoor opportunities of the Smokies, yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains. Willow Ridge is perched in a clearing on a full acre of land with only a few cabins in sight. In fact, The drive is only 7.3 miles from Willow Ridge to the Pigeon Forge Parkway (less than 10 minutes)--really convenient! Close enough to be part of it all, and yet far enough away to experience mountain peace.
Our luxury retreat is a smoke- and pet-free 1,300-square foot log cabin with spacious exposed-beam vaulted ceiling interiors, hardwood floors, and golden knotty-pine walls. Two private bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, pool room with floor-to-ceiling windows, and an upper-level office cove complete with computer, cordless phone (with free local and long-distance [US] service), and satellite wi-fi make this a perfect mountain retreat you'll never want to leave.
How does one enjoy a mountain getaway without enjoying a Sprawling Deck complete with locally crafted rockers and a four-person spa? It's where you'll spend every waking minute—even in the winter, when the meticulously maintained spa is heated to the perfect temperature. And don't forget about the deck-side gas grill with side burner: you may never spend time inside!
The spacious upper-level master bedroom features vaulted ceilings and expansive views, along with an electric fireplace and wall-mounted flat-screen television. A sunny nook facing south begs for a good book and some time in the comfy, plush armchair. Store your clothing in our antique armoire complete with hanger rack and built-in drawers. The stacked-stone jacuzzi tub sits just outside the full bath with walk-in shower. A solid wood king-size sleigh bed invites you for a good night's sleep. And the soft carpet will keep your feet warm on those cool winter nights.
Our downstairs guest bedroom features a wrought iron queen bed with silky-smooth linens. For those cool mountain evenings, tuck up underneath the fluffy down comforter and crack your windows to tune into the morning songbirds. Complete with a private closet and South Deck views, the guest bedroom opens into a semi-private bathroom with shower/tub.
The fully equipped kitchen comes with everything you need for a week of delicious living: refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, 5-burner glass-top range, microwave, and dishwasher. It's stocked with loads of cooking utensils any chef would admire, 4-slice toaster, auto-off coffee maker, and ample storage for your groceries. (And did we mention the custom-formed pottery mugs for your morning coffee?) Sit comfortably at the farmhouse table and chairs with side bench, or at the open breakfast bar with a bird's-eye view into the pool room. And pack light, since all guests may use our onsite washer/dryer. (Note: due to food safety regulations, guests must provide their own groceries.)
The living room features a floor-to-ceiling stacked-stone gas log fireplace and a huge flat screen television with DirecTV. Have a seat on our leather armchair and ottoman, or curl up on the leather sofa (with queen sleeper). Two glass doors open up to the wraparound deck, and massive windows give you views of the woodland mountain ridges all around.
Only the best would do in our gorgeous pool room perfect for those nights with a cold beverage and a healthy dose of competitive spirit. The AMF/Brunswick solid wood claw foot table provides the finest playing experience with slate top and ultra-smooth felt. Pull up a solid wood saddle stool at the cross-through breakfast bar and watch friends play the night away.
We've equipped Willow Ridge with all of the comforts of home, and we'd like to share it with you. Spend your next vacation at Willow Ridge, and enjoy a secure, peaceful retreat that offers an escape from the day's excursions to nearby Dollywood, Ripley's Aquarium, Cades Cove, the many hiking trails of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and the arts and crafts community of Gatlinburg.

Willow Ridge is perched on a ridge within the Village at Shagbark, a residential community in Sevierville, Tennessee—just a stone's throw from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, the Foothills Parkway, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our community is a gated, 24-hour guarded oasis of nearly 1,300 acres of mountainous woodlands. It's a secure, quiet, peaceful retreat that offers an escape from the day's excursions to nearby Dollywood, Ripley's Aquarium, Cades Cove, and the arts and crafts community of Gatlinburg.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We love the Smokies. Spending time at Willow Ridge is a treat we cherish. Willow Ridge gives us a chance to experience pure tranquility—from the time on the deck (morning, evening, and anytime we get a chance in between) to hiking the hundreds of nearby mountainous trail heads to our afternoon motorcycle rides through nearby sleepy, rolling back country roads of Wears Valley and the Great Smoky Mountain National Forest. Willow Ridge is our retirement home. It's our future. And until we can find the time to be here full-time, we want to share it with you. A home this rich in character and amenities deserves to be enjoyed by people who can fill its golden sunlight-drenched afternoons with laughter, comfort, and peace.
