We are located centrally in Pigeon Forge 1/2 mile from the Parkway which is the main drag through town, off Wears Valley Road. 1/4 mile from the cabin is a very modern Kroger, gas station, car wash etc. then within a 4 mile range are many restaurants and attractions see

One must do just 1/4 miles from the cabin is the longest Alpine Coaster in the United States, the Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster. The track is more than a mile long and you can control how fast your ride is!

New to Pigeon Forge is 'The Island' right in the middle of the river with a humongous Ferris Wheel, restaurants, shops they offer live bands nightly, a free outdoor movie once a week... its a really fun place to be The famous Margarita ville resort and dining is to open Summer of 2014.

Of course Gatlinburg (one of our favorite spots is just 6 1/2 mile up the Parkway and there are many more restaurants and attractions. Take the tram up to Ober Gatlingburg for really beautiful views or the Smoky Mountains. There are several scenic drives, right off Gatlinburg and also in Cades Cove near Townsend. Of course don't forget the Smoky Mountain National Park with and the Appalachian Trail. About 36 miles from here is the town of Cherokee with its quaint downtown and also its Casino, definitely worth the drive though the scienic mountains.

So much to do so little time ;) Enjoy your stay!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Brigitte grew up in Germany, and entered the professional world of Tourism at 18. Came to Texas in my twenties got married and had 3 children, During that time I managed a travel agency and later became a Realtor. Moved to Colorado Springs with my youngest daughter (for her allergies) in 1999 and fell in love with the mountains and my now husband Rich who has 2 children. We loved to hike or snowshoe many different areas and discover nature, always wished we had a log cabin. He has been in Graphics and Ink's for a long time, owing his own companies. Then worked with a company to head up sales for Sublimation Inks (not very well know then) later was transferred to Florida, which ended our quest to eventually own a cabin in the Mountains. Now our home is a condo in Cape Canaveral, were we can watch the cruise ships from one balcony and the ocean from the back. We love to travel around North Carolina, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Caribbean Island, went west to Santa Fe, Phoenix, Santa Barbara, Utah etc. loved it all and were always looking to find a vacation type home. Rich is still working but with the freedom to work from home. I am somewhat retired, love photography and painting. We both enjoy hiking, discovering new places to eat and have fun. Rich was born and raised in Denver, he has 2 children and 4 Grandchildren and one on the way. He loves to Golf, ski and is into biking, but does that mainly in Florida, as there are not many trails here. He is a great handyman and we enjoyed several DIY home projects. Appalachian Dream is our latest project and we have done a lot to update it and upgrade it. Now we are getting ready to lease out and manage our cabin. We are so happy to find the perfect area and place here in Pigeon Forge. This worked out just perfect. We called our cabin 'Appalachian Dreams' because that was our Dream. We are very much looking forward to hosting you, feel free to ask us about the area, the cabin etc. Enjoy your stay!!!

Why the Owner Chose Pigeon Forge, TN, USA:
Rich and I have been looking for a getaway in the mountains. We both love the ocean but we also love the mountains. We finally zeroed in on the Appalachian Mountains after a few trips to various destinations. We kept looking for something serene and beautiful, but were there is also something happening, but not to high up on scary roads. Finally we took a look at Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and fell in love with the Smoky Mountains. Got a realtor to show us some, when we came to Big Bear Resort... that was it and we immediately decided to purchase there. After a few hurdles we bought in December of 2012, but did not close until 2013 and brought the family up there for Christmas, we had so much fun. Now we stay here during the slow season in Winter and go back to Florida for the rest of the time. We have put a lot of work into it, as it was decorated in a Florida style, so we pretty much changed everything except a few items to give it more an Appalachian look.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We fell in love with the solid log built home right away, it is a duplex, so in total it looks pretty impressive. The large covered Porches and the community it is in. We love the massive fireplace and the cabin smell (kind of forestry) when you first enter. We sleep so well, with our balcony door wide open, such crisp awesome air is here. Everything is just perfect for relaxation. Every time we leave, we can't wait to come back to our Appalachian Dreams.
