About this listing
Our luxury retreat is a smoke- and pet-free 1,300-square foot log cabin with exposed-beam vaulted ceiling interiors, hardwood floors, and golden knotty-pine walls. Two private bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, pool room, wraparound decks.
Willow Ridge is located in the private gated community of Shagbark, which boasts 1,300 acres of woodlands in the rolling foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Shagbark has a community pool (accessible Memorial to Labor Day), tennis courts, and ground-level parking for your motorcycles and small trailer.*
Close to the towns of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg (in fact, only 7.3 miles from Willow Ridge to the Pigeon Forge Parkway), and convenient to all the outdoor opportunities of the Smokies, yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains. Willow Ridge is perched in a clearing on a full acre of land with only a few cabins in sight.
Our luxury retreat is a smoke- and pet-free 1,300-square foot log cabin with spacious exposed-beam vaulted ceiling interiors, hardwood floors, and golden knotty-pine walls. Two private bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, pool room with floor-to-ceiling windows, and an upper-level office cove complete with computer, cordless phone (with free local and long-distance [US] service), and satellite wi-fi make this a perfect mountain retreat you'll never want to leave.
How does one enjoy a mountain getaway without enjoying a Sprawling Deck complete with locally crafted rockers and a four-person spa? It's where you'll spend every waking minute—even in the winter, when the meticulously maintained spa is heated to the perfect temperature. And don't forget about the deck-side gas grill with side burner: you may never spend time inside!
The spacious upper-level master bedroom features vaulted ceilings and expansive views, along with an electric fireplace and wall-mounted flat-screen television. A sunny nook facing south begs for a good book and some time in the comfy, plush armchair. The stacked-stone jacuzzi tub sits just outside the full bath with walk-in shower. Store your clothes in the antique armoire with hanger rack and built-in drawers. A solid wood king-size sleigh bed invites you for a good night's sleep. And the soft carpet will keep your feet warm on those cool winter nights.
Our downstairs guest bedroom features a wrought iron queen bed with silky-smooth linens. For those cool mountain evenings, tuck up underneath the fluffy down comforter and crack your windows to tune into the morning songbirds. Complete with a private closet and dresser and South Deck views, the guest bedroom opens into a semi-private bathroom with shower/tub.
The fully equipped kitchen comes with everything you need for a week of delicious living: refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, 5-burner glass-top range, microwave, and dishwasher. It's stocked with loads of cooking utensils any chef would admire, 4-slice toaster, auto-off coffee maker, and ample storage for your food. (Please note: due to food safety regulations, guests must provide their own groceries.) And did we mention the custom-formed pottery mugs for your morning coffee?
Sit comfortably at the farmhouse table and chairs with side bench, or at the open breakfast bar with a bird's-eye view into the pool room. And pack light, since all guests may use our onsite washer/dryer.
The living room features a floor-to-ceiling stacked-stone gas log fireplace and a huge flat screen television with DirecTV. Have a seat on our leather armchair and ottoman, or curl up on the leather sofa (with queen sleeper). Two glass doors open up to the wraparound deck, and massive windows give you views of the woodland mountain ridges all around.
Only the best would do in our gorgeous pool room perfect for those nights with a cold beverage and a healthy dose of competitive spirit. The AMF/Brunswick solid wood claw foot table provides the finest playing experience with slate top and ultra-smooth felt. Pull up a solid wood saddle stool at the cross-through breakfast bar and watch friends play the night away.
We've equipped Willow Ridge with all of the comforts of home, and we'd like to share it with you. Spend your next vacation at Willow Ridge, and enjoy a secure, peaceful retreat that offers an escape from the day's excursions to nearby Dollywood, Ripley's Aquarium, Cades Cove, the many hiking trails of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and the arts and crafts community of Gatlinburg.
