About Sarah Nie, assistant for the Pioneer

We love the great outdoors. Our family really enjoys good food and coming together around the large harvest table at the Pioneer. The kitchen is very large and this is where we spend most of our time together.

Parents can relax knowing their kids are always within ear-shot on the 4 acre gentle sloping peninsula. The boys love to waterski, fish and hang out around the camp fire.

Why Sarah Nie, assistant for the Pioneer chose Gatlinburg

This was once our Grandmother's home. Granny knew the Smoky Mountains like the back of her hand. She knew just about every thing that grew in the woods and what it was used for. The building techniques of the Early American settlers have last to this day. Each log is a work of art.

What makes this cabin unique

Guest get to experience a glimmer of what life might have looked like during the early 1800's, but with all the comforts of modern living. Guests get the pleasure of staying in a real home that was full of love and music...you feel it right at home as soon as you walk in the door. Staying at the Pioneer is like having the best of both worlds. You have the lake shore vacation that is within easy driving distance of the mountains and all the action of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us spend our parents 50th Wedding Anniversary at the Pioneer Trading Post. You can feel the history, culture, and warmth that your Granny you and your family have put into the cabin! We shared a lot of time cooking, hanging out on the deck, in the hot tub and down by the dock. There is so much to explore here inside and out! We definitely want to come back! Indianapolis, IN

Even nicer than pictured!

  • 5 of 5
This property is absolutely awesome! It was even nicer than pictured. The property sits on a slope and the pathway down to the dock is beautifully landscaped. There are 5 porch swings on the property, including 1 by the dock and 1 on the wooded slope. This creates many lovely spaces to spread out to. The lake was actually warm which was a nice surprise. We all enjoyed swimming, kayaking, and fishing this very large lake. We had rain only once, in the evening, and spent an awesome time out front under the covered porch watching it all. We also enjoyed Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. My 80 year old father joined us on the zipline and it's one of his favorite stories to tell everyone now! (Check Groupon, etc. for possible tickets ahead of time/Also many attractions offer military/veteran discounts with card up to 50% off-thanks Dad!) The two cities are very, very packed with people during the prime season period so you are going to want to choose a place that you can hang out at and that will be a major part of the vacation itself. The Pioneer Trading Post offers many beautiful spots to relax and unwind, reconnect with loved ones, and enjoy lakeside activities.
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5
we had a wonderful trip and truly enjoyed the trading post. around every corner were items that reminded me of summer trips to see my grandparents and all of the daily items they used that my grandchildren had no idea what they were.The butter churns and the old washing tubs and ringer on the back porch were items of conversation. The lake swimming and the fishing were also so much fun for all. We also had tickets for Dollywood, and between Dollywood, Splash Country and the cabin it was a busy week.

Awesome Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Cabin was perfect for our family vacation. A great mix of new and old. The deck on the east side was great for watching sun come up and eating breakfast. We ate most of our meals outside. Cabin was clean and well taken care of. We have already discussed booking it for next year!!

Our family reunion could not have been better! The kids had a blast fishing, roasting marshmallows at the fire pit, and running around on the property. The adults had fun relaxing in the hot tube, play cards on the back porch, and gathering in the kitchen to cook together! What a lovely property with great history.

The Pioneer did not disappoint, exactly as it was described. We spent 7 fun filled days swimming in the lake, taking trips into Pigeon Forge, Gatlingburg and the Smoky Mountain National Park. Everything about the Pioneer was awesome took all if us back in time but at the same time you wanted for nothing as all our needs were met. Would love to do this again!!
