Why Rita Blair chose Pigeon Forge
Our family has vacationed in the Smokies for three generations. Twice annually for a week at a time, plus frequent three day weekends we hit the trails for picnicking, fishing, hiking, local attractions, and “yes” even shopping. Finally my husband and I were presented with a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase an acre of land that borders the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. This land was previously unavailable for sale, so when it became available we jumped at the chance. Then came the process of building our dream home. After a lengthy design process, which incorporated ideas from family and friends, came the 13 month construction period. The “result” is a spectacular, yet inviting and relaxing log home nestled between the Appalachian Mountains and the spruce and fir forest that covers them. Here nature converges with both the indoor and outdoor living spaces to heighten our senses of the beauty that surrounds us. Our memories are many……happy times spent with family and friends observing holidays and celebrating birthdays, graduations and a myriad of other special occasions. Sunrises and sunset against the backdrop of one of the most beautiful places on earth are enduring. We have also enjoyed learning about the history of East Tennessee, the people and their customs. As the circle of life evolves, we find that we spend less time in our mountain paradise. However, we want to offer you, your family and friends the opportunity to create your own memories in our mountain retreat. We hope you will find time to soak in the peace and tranquility that this most special and wondrous place offers.
