Built on five acres of hardwood forest, the property faces east for fabulous sunrises and moon rises over the mountains. All you can really see are mountains and trees in the summer; when the leaves fall, you can see several vistas of the Little Pigeon River sparkling below. You can always hear the river, hence the name of this neighborhood Riversong. Greenbrier Mountain Lodge is at the end of a private road and gated, but offers parking for 20 cars. The private road is the perfect short walk for after dinner or after a nap! A more ambitious walk would take you down to the river and back up. Occasionally a car may pass you. The location is great because although it feels as though you're really out in the mountains, you're only 10-15 minutes from all the activity and fun of Gatlinburg, and a half hour to Pigeon Forge, the shopping outlet malls, and Dollywood. Plus, it's back roads to any of those destinations, meaning no sitting in traffic, which can be a big deal around here during busy times! Highway 321 is two miles from us here and connects to Gatlinburg to the west and to I-40 to the east.
Two miles from here is also the Greenbrier entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a somewhat undiscovered and beautiful playground featuring five miles of road for walking and biking, numerous hiking trails, and river for swimming, tubing, fishing, painting! Also close by is the Arts and Crafts Community, an 11-mile loop of local artisans and galleries with unique shopping opportunities.
This home is very comfortable, designed for family and friend reunions and retreats. There are plenty of spaces to relax alone, or for smaller groups to chat. Of course, everyone likes to hang out in the kitchen, and this kitchen is true to that mission! Except when you choose to grill out, then you might find all the rocking chairs full.
You cross a bridge over the river to enter the subdivision -- we always sigh and are grateful to be returning to our sanctuary. The subdivision has a 24 hour surveillance camera on all vehicles coming and going for your security. Greenbrier Mountain Lodge has a full ADT security system for your added comfort.

About Pam Burnup, Property Manager
We built this home with the idea that we would live in it a year or two and then turn it into a nightly rental. Well, seven years later, we can say that we have loved every minute here and are now excited to share it. We were the general contractors for the property and you will notice the many extras and upgrades, from the hand-carved dogwood blossoms in the mantel above the fireplace, to our lovely premium lighting, to the rose bushes out front. This property is meant to be a vacation lodge and we are moving on to other ventures!
Pam Burnup, Property Manager purchased this lodge in 2006
Why Pam Burnup, Property Manager chose Gatlinburg
We lived in a home in Pigeon Forge for 12 years and were building rental chalets for sale here in Riversong and also on Ski Mountain in Gatlinburg. When our neighbor in Pigeon Forge made us an offer on our farm there, we decided to build a house here. We own four lots, about five acres, and at the end of the road as it is, we have great privacy and magnificent views.
What makes this lodge unique
We call it the 'mountain movie' -- just sitting on one of our decks and watching the magnificent vista. In summer, all you see is trees and mountains, the soaring hawks and ravens; in winter, you see the river below, sparkling silver and gold, and another cabin or two in the distance. The Greenbrier entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park is eight minutes drive, and we love hiking, biking, and swimming there. Gatlinburg is but 15 minutes total, with all the great restaurants and fun things to do there. This location allows you to slip in and out the 'back' ways to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville, avoiding seasonal traffic.
