About Jim and Cheryl Douglas

We spent our honeymoon in the beautiful Smoky Mountains when we married so it is a very special place to us and has long been a dream of ours to have a cabin here!! Now, we love being able to bring our grandchildren to the mountains and enjoy getting to take them to Dollywood, Gatlinburg, Cade's Cove or the many activities available in the park. But, our most favorite things to enjoy are just taking a relaxing drive on the beautiful, shade covered mountain roads that wind along the river while listening to the rushing water or spending the day together relaxing in the cabin, enjoying the views and hot tub or the resort swimming pool!! We love to travel and have tried to incorporate all the comforts and amenities we like to enjoy in a vacation home into our cabin. Being comfortable is a big deal to us, lol, and believe we have made Whispering Pines a place where we all can go to really relax and unwind. I am an interior designer and have absolutely loved working to make Whispering Pines a comfortable and beautiful cabin for everyone to enjoy!! We live in Hendersonville, Tennessee which is just 3.5 hours from the Smokies and have been blessed with 2 children and 3 grandchildren. Our family looks so forward to the time we get to spend together at Whispering Pines. It has been such a wonderful blessing to us and we are SO GRATEFUL we get to share it!! It provides the perfect little getaway for our family and we hope it will be a wonderful retreat for yours as well!!

Jim and Cheryl Douglas purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Jim and Cheryl Douglas chose Pigeon Forge

We have stayed in many, many different locations and cabins in the Smokies, so when we decided to purchase one of our own we would only consider Sherwood Forest Resort because we felt they truly had everything we wanted - a lovely, safe, gated resort in an ideal location with the most beautiful cabins and the most spectacular views in the Smokies!!!

What makes this cabin unique

Whispering Pines is located in a quiet, resort setting with spectacular views of the Smokies!! You will feel like you are out in the middle of the mountains yet we are only 1.3 miles from the Pigeon Forge Strip and the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park!! We are also ideally located between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and less than 5 miles from Dollywood. You will enjoy a relaxing hot tub on the deck overlooking Mt. LeConte, extremely comfortable beds with "SOFT" sheets, a pool table, full cable package on all 3 of our flat screen HDTV's, a whirlpool bath in the master bedroom, two fireplaces, a fully stocked kitchen with a keurig coffee maker, a washer/dryer, a swimming pool in the summer months in a safe gated resort in one of the most convenient locations in the Smokies and of course AMAZING VIEWS!!!

Awesome View...even better accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful trip! Cheryl and Jim were an absolute pleasure to work with- from booking to check out. They have thought of everything to make your trip the best it can be. We loved the location of the resort- close to gatlinburg and the park (taking back roads to avoid traffic was easy from this location). The resort itself was close to the parkway, yet you felt like you were right in the middle of the park- AMAZING VIEWS!! We also appreciated the paved roads and street lights in the resort- making it extremely easy to find your way even in the dark. The cabin is beautifully appointed with high end accommodations. You can tell that Cheryl and Jim went above and beyond making this a cabin that you will want to come back and visit time and time again. Very much enjoyed our trip and can't wait to return. We come to the park about twice a year. We lived in Tennessee for 10 years making even more frequent visits to this area during that time and Jim and Cheryl have been the nicest and most accommodating owners we have worked with. A note to travelers who use or have family members that use wheelchairs: We traveled with our 17 year old son who uses a wheelchair. Although there are about 6 steps getting into the cabin, he was able to easily move about the first floor of the cabin. The first floor bedroom is ideal for those not able or not wanting to do steps.

Incredible service and cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was completely blown away by Cheryl's kindness and genuine concern with the comfort and safety of myself and my family during out stay at her cabin. From requesting the stay all the way to the follow up messages I received after my stay to ensure my family had made it home safe. Cheryl was easily accessible and pleasant to speak with each time I reached out to her during our visit. The amenities at the cabin were top shelf and the views were breath taking! I will be staying in her cabins for years to come! Highly recommend her services!

Everyone was happy

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a beautiful location although challenging to reach with icy roads. Everything we needed for our short stay was provided and we loved the spaciousness and the hot tub. Cheryl was extremely helpful and accommodating.

Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful Cabin. Well Stocked. Very Clean. Great View. So Relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was by far one of the best we have rented in the area! It was well stocked, we didn't want for anything, Cheryl even provided a starter pack of essentials which is very nice extra perk. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the location was great - close to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Keep in mind when renting this cabin that it is located in a resort so it not secluded, yet still felt private. We arrived very late at night, and had no problem locating it and appreciated the area being well lit. Cheryl was extremely responsive and very easy to work with! Highly recommend Whispering Pines!

Car: necessary

The best location in the Smokies!!! Whispering Pines is centrally located between the Dollywood Theme Park (a short 3 miles drive west), the Pigeon Forge Strip (1.3 miles) and Gatlinburg (just 5 miles east). Sherwood Forest truly offers the best views of the Smoky Mountains while allowing you to rest a little easier on your vacation knowing you are in a beautiful, safe, secluded and quiet gated resort with convenience to everything! Tanger Outlet is the place to go for shopping and the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg strips both offer a variety of restaurants which is sure to include your favorite place to dine!
