About the Property
Secluded, nestled among trees, on a hill
The American Dream is just that, “a Dream!” Everything about this cabin was designed for relaxation, comfort, peace, and tranquility. You will experience all the comforts of home without the stress of day-to-day living.
When we decided to create a vacation getaway, we had one goal in mind - comfort! This cabin is comfortable. You will be surrounded by 1,444 square feet of tongue-and-groove wooden walls on a single story. It has two master suites, two master ensuites, a huge great room with gas log fireplace, ceiling fans, cathedral ceilings, windows that soar to the roofline, a fully equipped kitchen, full size front-load washer/dryer, whole-house water filtration system, window seat, two huge decks, a porch swing, hot tub, pool table, movies, games, books, charcoal grill, and a telescope for star gazing. The cabin also offers guests free WiFi, Satellite TV, and free local and nationwide calling. Live the Dream!
The Great Room
At one end of the great room is a fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen has everything needed for a great meal and then some. Cooks will enjoy spacious solid wood pine cabinets with under-mount task-lighting. The kitchen also has all the bells and whistles every gourmet kitchen should have such as microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator with icemaker and filtered cold water, Cuisinart coffee pot, Keurig Coffee Maker, Oster 14-speed blender, toaster, pots, pans, serving bowls, dishes, cooking utensils, flatware, plates,bowls, glasses, coffee mugs, and wine glasses. The kitchen also features new black Kenmore and Whirlpool appliances.
A massive 8-person Oak farm table with 8 solid wood black chairs provides plenty of space for meals and games. This table screams down-home comfort. It is surrounded by windows that lookout to the front yard. In the name of privacy, the front yard is at the back of the cabin. I encourage you not to think about that one too long; just come experience the creation of privacy this layout provides. At one end of the massive table is an upholstered window seat that sits under a 4-foot picture window that peeps out to the side yard and adjoining woods. Now, that’s, COMFORT!
Located in the center of the tiled kitchen floor is a cute little white island with a butcher-block top that houses some of the cookware and a few decorative wine glasses. Completing the goal of total down-home comfort, is a full-size Samsung frontload washer and dryer. Clothes come out of this washer almost dry, so, the dryer doesn’t have much to do.
Two Master Bedrooms and Two Master Ensuites
One issue my husband and I have experienced when we go with another couple for an adult weekend is “who gets the Master Suite?” Well, in this cabin, both couples get a Master Suite. Both suites are furnished with king-size log beds, with pillow-top mattresses, dressers, mirrors, 27 inch flat-screen TVs with satellite, cathedral ceilings, ceiling fans, jetted tubs nestled under two-story windows, separate showers with massage showerheads, makeup mirrors, a shared blow dryer, a shared ironing board and iron, two small box fans, and private doors leading to the back deck. The back deck has a picnic table, telescope, and hot tub with waterfall and mood lighting. From this location, guests can see the tops of some of the most magnificent deep-purple mountains. Soak away your stress and let the surrounds help you rejuvenate.
Convenience and serenity
American Dream provides seclusion, yet is minutes away from all the attractions of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Guests may want to visit Gatlinburg’s Arts & Crafts community, restaurants, antique shops, fashion shops, ice cream shops, fudge shops, or souvenir shops; good news is—they are all just a short drive away. Guest are also minutes away from nature trails, picnicking areas, rivers and streams, golfing, skiing, and Ober Gatlinburg.
The drive to the cabin will take you on some beautiful tree-covered roads. When you pull into the pole-light lined drive, you will pass the cabin and circle to the front where you will be nestled among trees. Truly, nature at its best. Relax on the front deck and you’ll not see another person. Sit in the hot tub on the back deck and soak in the view of the mountains. Live the Dream!
We can’t wait for you to experience our American Dream.

Dollywood Theme Parks (13.8 miles) Since 1986, Dolly Parton and Herschend Family Enterprises have remained partners in Dollywood, Tennessee's most-visited tourist attraction. Dollywood also ranks in the Top 50 most attended theme parks worldwide. The park has more than doubled in size now encompassing 118 acres. An entirely new area, Rivertown Junction, was added for Dollywood's first season. Included in this area were Aunt Granny's-still Dollywood's most-visited restaurant-Dolly's Tennessee Mountain Home; the 450-seat Back Porch Theatre and the Smoky Mountain Rampage. For additional Park information and ticket prices.
Great Smoky Mountain National Park: Ridge upon ridge of forest straddles the border between North Carolina and Tennessee in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. World renowned for its diversity of plant and animal life, the beauty of its ancient mountains, and the quality of its remnants of Southern Appalachian mountain culture, this is America's most visited national park. Biological diversity is the hallmark of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which encompasses over 800 square miles in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. No other area of equal size in a temperate climate can match the park's amazing diversity of plants, animals, and invertebrates. Over 17,000 species have been documented in the park: Scientists believe an additional 30,000-80,000 species may live here.
Why such a wondrous diversity? Mountains, glaciers, and weather are the big reasons. The park is the largest federally protected upland landmass east of the Mississippi River. Dominated by plant-covered, gently contoured mountains, the crest of the Great Smokies forms the boundary between Tennessee and North Carolina, bisecting the park from northeast to southwest in an unbroken chain that rises more than 5,000 feet for over 36 miles. Elevations in the park range from 875 to 6,643 feet. This range in altitude mimics the latitudinal changes you would experience driving north or south across the eastern United States, say from Georgia to Maine. Plants and animals common in the southern United States thrive in the lowlands of the Smokies while species common in the northern states find suitable habitat at the higher elevations.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Our family lives near Bowling Green, Ky. in a little town named Oakland. My husband is a buyer for a large grocery store chain and I am a retired high school teacher. We have four children and four grandchildren. We are Christians and strive to live as Jesus wants. We believe in Salvation and the Power of Prayer. I grew up vacationing in the Smoky Mountains. Each year, my parents packed the camper with clothes, foods, and kids and off to the mountain tops we went. We didn’t have much money when I was going up; so, we never had the opportunity to stay in a cabin. We always camped because it was cheaper. My parents were Christians and knew that one day they would die and go to heaven. My dad, and mom, alike use to talk about their reward in the afterlife for living for the Lord. It was so cute, instead of talking about their big mansion in the sky; they spoke of their 'cabin' in the sky. Both my parents died before we purchased the American Dream; but, I know they would be so proud! While designing our cabin getaway, I often thought of my mom and dad and could almost feel their presence. Thank you Mom and Dad for instilling the love of the Great Smoky Mountains in me. Thank you God for allow me to live their Dream! My husband loves nature too. He is a photojournalism major and spent most of his summers photographing animals and wilderness. He grew up in the city; but, has always aspired to live in the country. He loves the Smokies for all the same reasons as I and feels blessed to own and share the American Dream, LLC. We chose the name, and theme, American Dream, because of our love for this country, and for the men and women who serve to protect it, and us. We are blessed beyond our belief and the decor of American Dream reflects our appreciation for their sacrifices, and the sacrifices of their families.
