About Dawn Williams

My husband and I grew up in South Florida but we have vacationed in the mountains in NC and TN ever since we were kids forming a love for outdoor fun and the beauty the mountains provide. I grew up in a close family. We lived near our cousins who were more like siblings and we even vacationed with them. Creating a fun extended family environment where our kids have friends for life has been a primary goal in our lives. We are so excited that this house is big enough to get us all together a few times a year and will be a part of other families' memories also.

Dawn Williams purchased this house in 2016

Why Dawn Williams chose Dandridge

Buying this house has been a dream come true. We wanted a home where we could give our kids the fun and beauty of the mountains and lake with lots of outdoor activities and the action packed fun Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg offer. We also wanted to wake up and sit out on the porch in the early morning watching deer in our yard but also be able to go shopping and sightseeing. We actually found this home when we impulsively decided to spend a day of our vacation house hunting. My parents bought a small cabin in NC on their honeymoon all of a sudden and this is us following in their footsteps. We visit the mountains in TN a few times a year and have had such a hard time finding a home to fit our very large family so we thought to solve this we'd see about buying a place for us to use and pass down to our children one day too.

What makes this house unique

The glass doors all along the back of the home and the gorgeous hardwood floors immediately drew us in. The long back porches overlooking the lake and the deer in our yard almost every day have made us fall in love with the house more and more all the time. I love having all of this space for everyone to have a seat and for the different age groups to each have areas to hang out and watch what they want to on TV or play games they want to play. Having king beds for all the adults and a fun bunk room for the kids was exactly what everyone in our family rooted for and we hope lots of family enjoy and appreciate.

7 Bdrm Amazing Lakeside Family Fun Home by Pigeon Forge with Dock!
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

Very accommodating house for our large family.

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed! We have a large family and didn't feel like we were on top of each other during our stay. The owners provided bed linens, bath towels, beach towels, and laundry/dish detergent. They were also in the process of building a boat dock.

We give it a 4 Star Rating.

Property was in excellent shape. Air was great, One thing that would be nice is if the security lock on the deck door could have stayed unlocked. We kept forgetting the code. Lol. We would have liked a grill with that many guest.

Owner's Response: So glad you were happy with the house. Thanks for your helpful feedback. You can keep the security lock on the back door unlocked by pushing a button on the inside side of it. I will be adding that note to our House Book so future renters will know that's an option. We'll be looking into the grill as well. Thanks again :-)

Excellent Home and courteous owner!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home exceeded our needs for our most recent stay. There was a problem with some water damage that we found on our arrival, but the owner immediately had a crew there working and cleaning to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The home is very clean, with some of the most comfortable beds, and quality linens. The view of the lake is amazing from the home. We highly recommend the home and look forward to staying there again in the warmer months when we can get out and enjoy the water.

Awesome cabin - Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3-night stay and mainly due to the place being truly prepared for us in every way. Ample bedding and towels, a very clean and fully operational kitchen plus a game room with lots of games like shuffleboard, dart board and poker table. This place is perfect for a large group needing plenty of space. This place is secluded from busy Gatlinburg, pigeon forge downtown but easily accessible to all major attractions.

Owners are very nice and responded promptly to every text message. They even made sure we didn't have problems with directions while arriving.

Overall, I would highly recommend this place and will definitely stay here again

Simply beautiful and amazing

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful Lakeside property located in a wildlife preserve!! We saw deer everyday of our stay. So peaceful and yet convenient to the historic Dowtown Dandridge area. The house was perfect for our church women's retreat. The bedroom with the 5 twins... I can't imagine the fun kids would have in there. Four grown women had so much laughter and giggles. We enjoyed our blessed time at the Lakeside Getaway. We hope to get to comeback. Dawn was SUCH a sweetheart. A wonderful woman to work with. Any problems questions were dealt with prompt concern and great friendliness. She's a real joy.

Beautiful home with lots of fun for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Large, roomy home so everyone could sit around the table but everyone also found space to spread out. The kids got to play in the bunk room while the adults got to hang out in the family room and we all got together to play games. The beds were super comfy and it felt like we were staying at a fancy hotel with the plush towels and wonderful sheets. My kids loved getting to see deer everyday. The house was far enough away from all the crowds so that we got that cabin feeling but we were close enough to get the kids into the exciting activities in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Cades Cove. I highly recommend the horseback riding at Cades Cove. We will definitely return to this home on our next visit to Tennessee and I am highly recommending it to my family and friends.
