Peaceful Lakefront log cabin shaded by a multitude of Hickory trees, surrounded by Lake Douglas on three sides. This cabin offers the privacy of a country estate but is located only 3 ½ miles from I-40 and 3 miles to the center of the town of Dandridge where convenient shopping restaurants and boutiques are an easy drive away. While you enjoy a quiet sanctuary, a wealth of attractions are only a convenient drive to Sevierville, Dollywood and Gatlinburg.

The 1.5 acre property is fully fenced. Large screened porch provides panoramic views where you may savor the cool breezes from the lake. Take a leisurly paddle in the provided 2 man canoe. In the evening, watch the magnificent sunset from over the water from the swing glider.

My husband and I purchased this property as a getaway for ourselves and our family members. We continue to enjoy all seasons for vacationing at this property. We have enjoyed visits with grandchildren here and watched their delight at learning new things about nature firsthand.
We did not buy this property as a vacation rental, we bought it as a second home for ourselves. We needed a place where we could escape from our business and relax.
We especially enjoy the cooler weather, lake activities, country setting, and having a place for our dog to roam. Especially in winter, we love quiet times reading a novel by the fireplace, visiting historic areas, Gatlinburg and Dollywood.
