Pigeon Forge Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6)

CATCH & RELEASE is located on three SECLUDED, CREEKSIDE, WOODED acres in a gated community. We are one minute from our clubhouse, swimming pool and tennis court. This cabin has WIRELESS HIGH SPEED INTERNET and FREE LONG DISTANCE, 2 fireplaces, 2 KING bedrooms each with TV & DVD and separate receivers, 1 QUEEN bedroom with private bath, and 2 newly renovated bathrooms. All linens are provided; sheets, towels, kitchen towels. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking family meals. The loft has a POOL TABLE, which has views of the flat screen TV in the living room and the pond. There is a good selection of board games; Checkers, Chess, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Apples to Apples, Taboo, Scrabble, and backgammon for those rainy days or fun nights. We have a 45 DVD movie collection for those days our guests want to just hang out at Catch & Release. We will be adding to it each season.

The dramatic 30’ vaulted rock fireplace wall has a 42' FLAT SCREEN TV with SURROUND SOUND and DVD. The new THEATER/FAMILY/GAME room has a 48” FLAT SCREEN TV and DVD, bamboo hardwood floors, Foosball table, glass walls looking into the fishing pond and the backyard creek, and all leather furniture. The new 5 ton zoned Air Conditioning and Heating system is energy efficient and meets government specifications for GREEN buildings. Our new bathroom products are from Concept Amenities, an Australian soap company whose soaps are in 5 star European hotels. The bath gel, bar soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion are biodegradable and environmentally sensitive. We love our environment and know that you do too. This is why you come to the Smoky Mountains. Catch & Release strives to keep our environment clean.

The creek runs under the house into a large FISHING POND in the front yard, which has Goldfish, Catfish, and Brim. You can fish from the front deck in the stocked pond. Please bring your fishing poles. We request that you CATCH & RELEASE ONLY.

The pond fountain automatically turns on for your morning coffee and turns off at 6:00 pm. We turn it off in the winter months. The CREEKSIDE HOT TUB is in the moss covered backyard and under a COVERED TRELLIS in case of rain. The Hot Tub is emptied and refilled prior to each guest arrival in accordance with the Tennessee Department of Health Regulations. This is the most peaceful vacation home you will ever visit. It is tucked amongst the trees and early in the morning WILD TURKEYS come to drink at the edge of the pond.

There are new kitchen floors, slate counter tops, new appliances, new carpet throughout, new washer-dryer, and amazing landscaping in the front yard with a dry creek bed in stone, large boulders, and a RESIDENT TURTLE. The RACCOONS love Oreo cookies. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILIES. KIDS LOVE IT!!!

About Sandra

I am an interior designer and writer with published books. Catch & Release is a work in progress for me as I continue to change the interiors and update the amenities. Because I am in the design industry I continually buy new products for Catch & Release. It is a place of serenity and peace surrounded by nature, small critters and the changing seasons.

Why Sandra chose Pigeon Forge

Catch & Release is within an 8 hour or less driving distance of 80% of the US population. It is easy to get to via the interstate road systems. My cottage is located in a gated community whose 24 hour manned security center is there to log you in, provide directions, answer questions and provide assistance to you and your family.

Even though it is secluded in the mountains it is within 10 minutes of the center of all the activity in the Smoky Mountains. There is Dollywood, 4 golf courses, fishing, winter skiing in Gatlinburg, outlet shopping, a variety of kid entertainment and rides, and many affordable restaurants. There is no place like it and it is a wonderful place to have a family vacation. When you drive into Pigeon Forge the Welcome Center has free coupons to offer each traveler so they may take advantage of the many discounts offered to families.

What makes this chalet unique

Catch & Release is built over a creek which feeds into a fishing pond with a fountain in the front yard. The cottage sits on 4 acres and is surrounded by a forest, whose small critters come by to inspect the guests from time to time. The mornings are wonderful when the fountain comes on. You sit and drink your coffee and listen to the soft sound of the splashing water. If you are looking for interior comfort, an immaculate property, serenity, comfort and activity beyond your dreams - Catch & Release is the place to find it. We upgrade the interiors every year so it will be different every time you return! Come on over!

Loved the Catch & Release

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed here and we loved it. It was so clean the windows look like they were open it had plenty of room for us all. The kids loved the pool table and the games and they thought the table made into a checkerboard was so neat. My granddaughters loved to go feed the fish in the pond and we enjoyed sitting on the front porch. We loved walking in the back up the trails and getting in the hot tub. We liked it was secluded and how quite it was loved hearing the water run from the creek and it was so close to Pigeon Forge the kids loved going to the track and also riding on the roller coaster going up the mountain. Sandra was so sweet to call us to see if we got there safe and let us know they saw a mommy bear and cubs in the front yard and in the pond we wanted to see them so bad but never got to. Maybe next time because we will be going back we loved it. I will tell all my friends about it and tell them they need to go.

Outstanding Property!

  • 5 of 5

We desperately needed a get-away and wanted to be near the Smokies, and Catch & Release was a great choice.

Everything you need has been thought of and is there waiting for you, so all you need to do is show up and enjoy.

The location is amazingly secluded within the Shagbark community, and even more so than other homes. It was built with privacy in mind, and that’s evident from every inch of the property.

And while the pictures are wonderful, it’s still hard to imagine how calm and peaceful the home is, with lovely views from anywhere in or outside of the house.

Sandra, the home’s owner, was great to work with, and eager to make our stay enjoyable. I had one question for her during our stay, and she responded to my inquiry within an hour.

Looking at an area map may indicate Catch & Release is farther away from the 'Great Smokey Mountain National Park' than you may want to be, but don't let that be a concern.

It’s only 10 minutes from the main Pigeon Forge area, and then just another 10 or so miles to Gatlinburg, and the entrance to the park.

This is a wonderful home for a weekend or full vacation stay, and we recommend it highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you not only for this lovely review, but for the suggestions you noted in comments back to me. Our guest comments always improve the stay of guests who follow! Our housekeeping staff mentioned that the house was left so clean they hardly knew where to begin - so very thoughtful of you to think of the people who work so hard behind the scenes to make your visit spectacular.

This homeowner has thought of everything! The cabin is nestled on a secluded and private 4 acres in a gated community. We loved the fact that the cabin was tucked away and you could not see any neighbors. My 11 year old son enjoyed exploring the grounds. My 18 year old daughter loved the fact she could have her privacy. We all enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the trip back into town, the numerous games provided, and comfy sofa while watching TV. (There are 2 living areas!!!) The beds were top-of-the-line and were fitted with plush linens. All things were provided with our comfort in mind. Home was tastefully decorated and immaculately cleaned. I would recommend this home to my friends and family. We hope to return very soon!

Catch and Release was amazing and so much more than we expected. The drive up the mountain to Catch and Release was an adventure. It is on a mountain road that is more narrow than the average road but it wasn't difficult at all and the views were spectacular. We pulled into Catch and Releases driveway and it took our breath away. The inside is beautifully decorated and makes you feel at home. The beds are very comfortable! My favorite part of the property was the view from the front porch! French doors open to the porch and the pond is just steps away. I loved drinking my morning coffee while sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch, looking at the fall colors and listening to the stream trickle down the mountain into to pond. It is secluded which makes it relaxing and peaceful. My husband and son loved the pool table and the foosball table brought back many memories from high school days for my husband and I. We can't wait to go back and have already started trying to figure out when we can go back in the spring! We were looking for a place to go to that wasnt too far away the tourists spots but far enough away that we could relax and unwind and that is Catch and Release

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay while visiting Pigeon Forge! This home is a relaxing retreat at the end of any activity you choose. The house is immaculate, and I had no reservations at all of allowing our 1-year-old grandchild to crawl on the floor. I forgot to ask the owner what brand of mattresses were on the beds, as my wife and I both commented on several nights of the best rest we'd had in a very long time. I highly recommend anyone staying in Pigeon Forge to visit this reasonably-priced rental, and the owner's practice of helping cancer sufferers is something that impressed me. Other rental owners would do well to emulate this owner. High marks all around!

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Our family (grandmothers and grandkids) really enjoyed the cabin. There is enough room for everyone to have his/her own space, but the kitchen and dining room are great for all to come together for meals and games. Despite the constant rain throughout our stay, we were cozy even on the front porch and in the hot tub. Bathrooms are up to date, and the kitchen is in good shape to prepare large meals. I would definitely recommend this place. Sandra is wonderful to work with and I would love to return.
