About the property

Get Married Overlooking the Mtns or have a Anniversary/Family Reunion Here!!

Greenbrier Mtn Lodge is our six bedroom mountain escape and the perfect place for special occasions such as a anniversary, birthday, office meeting or wedding. We are one of only 13 properties listed on the Homeaway Luxury site in this area. Quite an honor! Also, very close to Rocky Top Sports Center. We have a large outdoor deck with the incredible Greenbrier Mountain in the background for your wedding ceremony or pictures. We have a private special event coordinator that will help plan your occasion. She knows all the good local florist, caterers, salons for hair and nails (or have the salon come to our property) and can decorate elegantly or casually for any theme. We also have a 4 bedroom (sleeps 10) lodge for extra guests that we can direct you to that is in the same neighborhood if you need more space.

The main house features 5 bedrooms, 4 kings with in suite baths, one with two queens; home theater and full game room with pool table and multicade game (with 60 games on it); three gas fireplaces; deluxe kitchen with stainless steel appliances, large pantry room, two double stainless sinks, and granite countertops; loft/library area fully equipped with games and over 500 books; two spacious levels of decking with fantastic views of the National Park, especially Greenbrier Mountain; hot tub; flat screen TVs throughout with DISH Network; WiFi. Separate beautiful honeymoon/in-law studio apartment has small kitchenette, king size iron bed (very upscale), full bathroom, private deck and hot tub with amazing views.

Built on five acres of hardwood forest, the property faces east for fabulous sunrises and moon rises over the mountains. All you can really see are mountains and trees in the summer; when the leaves fall, you can see several vistas of the Little Pigeon River sparkling below. You can always hear the river, hence the name of this neighborhood Riversong. Greenbrier Mountain Lodge is at the end of a private road and gated, but offers parking for 20 cars. The private road is the perfect short walk for after dinner or after a nap! A more ambitious walk would take you down to the river and back up. Occasionally a car may pass you. The location is great because although it feels as though you're really out in the mountains, you're only 10-15 minutes from all the activity and fun of Gatlinburg, and a half hour to Pigeon Forge, the shopping outlet malls, and Dollywood. Plus, it's back roads to any of those destinations, meaning no sitting in traffic, which can be a big deal around here during busy times! Highway 321 is two miles from us here and connects to Gatlinburg to the west and to I-40 to the east.

Two miles from here is also the Greenbrier entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a somewhat undiscovered and beautiful playground featuring five miles of road for walking and biking, numerous hiking trails, and river for swimming, tubing, fishing, painting! Also close by is the Arts and Crafts Community, an 11-mile loop of local artisans and galleries with unique shopping opportunities.

This home is very comfortable, designed for family and friend reunions and retreats. There are plenty of spaces to relax alone, or for smaller groups to chat. Of course, everyone likes to hang out in the kitchen, and this kitchen is true to that mission! Except when you choose to grill out, then you might find all the rocking chairs full.

You cross a bridge over the river to enter the subdivision -- we always sigh and are grateful to be returning to our sanctuary. The subdivision has a 24 hour surveillance camera on all vehicles coming and going for your security. Greenbrier Mountain Lodge has a full ADT security system for your added comfort.

About Pam Burnup, Property Manager

We built this home with the idea that we would live in it a year or two and then turn it into a nightly rental. Well, seven years later, we can say that we have loved every minute here and are now excited to share it. We were the general contractors for the property and you will notice the many extras and upgrades, from the hand-carved dogwood blossoms in the mantel above the fireplace, to our lovely premium lighting, to the rose bushes out front. This property is meant to be a vacation lodge and we are moving on to other ventures!

Pam Burnup, Property Manager purchased this lodge in 2006

Why Pam Burnup, Property Manager chose Sevierville

We lived in a home in Pigeon Forge for 12 years and were building rental chalets for sale here in Riversong and also on Ski Mountain in Gatlinburg. When our neighbor in Pigeon Forge made us an offer on our farm there, we decided to build a house here. We own four lots, about five acres, and at the end of the road as it is, we have great privacy and magnificent views.

What makes this lodge unique

We call it the 'mountain movie' -- just sitting on one of our decks and watching the magnificent vista. In summer, all you see is trees and mountains, the soaring hawks and ravens; in winter, you see the river below, sparkling silver and gold, and another cabin or two in the distance. The Greenbrier entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park is eight minutes drive, and we love hiking, biking, and swimming there. Gatlinburg is but 15 minutes total, with all the great restaurants and fun things to do there. This location allows you to slip in and out the 'back' ways to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville, avoiding seasonal traffic.

For a wedding or family reunion, we refer to it as the 'Honeymoon Suite' because the happy couple (or parents -- or grandparents) can have a luxurious private retreat of their own, while other guests/family members stay just steps away. Many people choose to get married by the river in the Greenbrier, just a few minutes' drive, but here in the house, or on the deck, or under the decorative carport out front would work as well. For those who love the Smokies, and all things river, there is so much to do! Trout fly fishing, tubing, swimming in the summer is heaven! The Greenbrier entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park is an amazing place with lovely roads to walk and hiking trails to see old settlers' walls, wildflowers, and waterfalls. When our friends and family visit, a lot of time is spent just sitting in the rocking chairs on the deck and enjoying our 'mountain movie.' Then we'll get motivated and go whitewater rafting, or shopping, or to dinner in Gatlinburg!

Gorgeous views and spacious indoors and out

  • 4 of 5

Our group had a fantastic time at Greenbrier Lodge! The drive up to the house was steep but worth it. Some of the group arrived thinking they were in the wrong location because it looks like a Lodge with a grand entry and guest house. There was a perfect amount of space for our group of 10. The master bedroom on the top floor is stellar with a large shower that has it's own sliding door out to a private deck overlooking the mountains. That was a highlight. We really enjoyed the large decks, hot tub, theater/game room, fireplaces and upstairs library nook. The drive into Gatlinburg is not very long and we visited Saturday and Sunday for lunch and touring around the strip area. The property manager was very nice to work with although we did have some issues with the accessing the trip details on a PC. The mobile app was the only way to acquire the property details as far as door keycode, alarm code, directions, etc. This made it difficult to share information with the group that were arriving at different times. I have booked other trips on HomeAway after this trip and the PC website information was easily accessible. This was the only negative to this trip, otherwise everything was wonderful! Check out Greenbrier Lodge! You will not be disappointed.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter fell in love for the second time the moment she set eyes on Greenbrier Mountain lodge, so we chose to stay there for her wedding weekend and also hold the reception there. The views from every room are breathtaking and the lodge easily accommodated 12 adults. All the bedrooms are unique and beautiful. The beds are comfy and the rooms are provided with plenty of fresh linens and towels, etc. The separate honeymoon suite with its own bathroom, mini kitchen, private deck and hot tub was perfect for the newlyweds. At Pam's recommendation, we asked Tina and her team to plan the whole event for us. Tina, aka Wonder Woman and her team decorated the house, helped to plan the menu, cooked and served the entire meal, cleaned up the kitchen, set up the game room for dancing, and even did hair and make up for the bridal party. The food and desserts were delicious and appealed to everyone's tastes. They are an amazing team! Pam too is very helpful and wonderfully responsive, and she was a delight to work with. Gatlinburg in December is stunning, the town is all lit up for the holidays, and there is plenty to do and see. The lodge has plenty of parking, a great entertainment system, a game room, a hot tub, a big outdoor grill, a deck on every level, and good wifi. We all wish we could have spent more time there and would love to go back for another visit someday.

Beautiful home with fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 enjoyed spending Christmas together at this beautiful property. The home was decorated for Christmas, so we all enjoyed the trees, lights, & garland throughout the interior & exterior of the home. There was plenty of room for each family to have their own bedroom & bathroom. The kitchen was spacious, & we took advantage of the 2 refrigerators. The children enjoyed the video games & air hockey on the lower level, & we all had fun watching movies in the theater area of lower level. It was wonderful to have a baby crib for our 1 year old granddaughter, & also nice that all the outside decks had gates that closed so we didn't have to worry about her falling down the steps. We would recommend this property to anyone with a large group. It's a lovely private home, & we couldn't have enjoyed our time there more! Hope we can come back again...we all were sad to leave! Thank you for a memorable family vacation!

Owner's Response: Carolyn, It was so nice to have you and your family enjoying Christmas at our beautiful Greenbrier Mtn Lodge. We try to decorate "just like home" during the holidays as we know many people celebrate their Christmas with their families away from home. Please consider a return visit again. We would love to have you!! Pam

We had a great family, long weekend at Riversong. The house was exactly as described and a great place for our gathering. Views were amazing and very close to the national park for hiking .

We'd definitely return.

The cabin was wonderful. It was very spacious and they had everything you could need. I couldn't wait to wake up to the amazing views of the mountains right outside my window. The very first day we saw a bear by another cabin. A few days later we had one right in our drive. We were all so excited to watch him.

Owner's Response: That view is amazing for sure. Seeing black bear is certainly a treat. We have had many opportunities to see them this year. Please come back again and tell friends and family about us. Pam

Great Wedding and Special Event (Family Reunion, Anniversary/Birthday Celebration, Company Business Seminar with theater area for presentations) Destination!! Our property even has a separate Honeymoon Suite adjacent to the main house. Let our event planner help make your "special" day just what you have always dreamed of. She can help as little or as much as you like.

We also hosted our family reunion here in 2010 and our activity list for the week included: Dollywood, Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg, hiking to Alum Cave, bicycling the 11-mile loop through Cades Cove (1 hour drive), whitewater rafting out of Hartford (45 minute drive; we booked through Nantahala Outdoor Center in Gatlinburg); swimming in the river at the Greenbrier, golf at Bent Creek, shopping at Tanger Five Oaks Outlet Mall, a day on a pontoon boat at Douglas Lake (35 minute drive to Gator Point marina, pontoons available for rent), dinner at either (or both) The Peddler and The Park Grill, lunch outside on the patio at The Best Italian, live music at Three Jimmies, an evening walk though downtown Gatlinburg, and other fun!! We only got most of that list done, because everyone wanted to stay home, have big barbecues, and play games and guitars of an evening. It was a blast.

Although we are closest to Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pigeon Forge is a short drive on the back roads and offers amazing fun for kids of all ages, a great choice of restaurants, movie theater, and tremendous shopping. Of course, it is home to the amazing Dollywood and Splash Country, the adjacent water park.

While Bent Creek Golf Resort is just 10 minutes from the house, there are other excellent courses in Sevier County, including the Gatlinburg Golf Course (located in Pigeon Forge!), and Eagle's Landing, in Sevierville.
