Overview

Douglas Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

At this wonderful home, aptly named Peacewood, marvel over the magnificent sunset as you relax on the screened porch, drink in hand, enjoying the aroma of dinner on the grill. With mountain and lake views that take all of your stress away, even the worst teenager will seem like a nice person.

The exquisite blue green waters of Lake Douglas promise something for all, whether you are an avid fisherman, love to swim, water ski, jet ski or just enjoy relaxing on the water. A variety of boats are readily available for rental at the many public marinas.

You are just minutes from the incredible beauty of The Great Smoky Mountain National Park, the action of Pigeon Forge, and the charm of Gatlinburg. Dollywood and Splash Country are nearby and provide fun for all.

Create great meals in the full kitchen or treat yourself to the delights of a local restaurant. Enjoy your favorite programming on the 55' HD TV and... you can watch from room to room so you won't miss a beat.

Peacewood is kid friendly.....the kids can have fun with XBOX KINECT, and a special playroom on the second floor especially equipped for the little ones. The yard is large enough for running around to work off unspent energy.

With enough room to sleep 10 very comfortably, Peacewood can be used for a large get together with family and friends or just a romantic getaway. A washer and dryer are available and all linens are provided.

You will not be disappointed in Peacewood where local color and flavor abound as you encounter a horse and buggy on the road or see deer grazing nearby. Come and revel in Peacewood!

About Kathy Garaudy

We have been married for 27 years and enjoy taking car trips. The drive from New Orleans to Dandridge is lovely and though we love New Orleans unconditionally we also love our home in Dandridge and treasure our time there. Our three children are happy to spend time enjoying the beauty of Peacewood.

Kathy Garaudy purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Kathy Garaudy chose Douglas Lake

After looking at over 50 homes in Tennessee and North Caroliina, the minute we saw Peacwood we knew it was the home for us. With both lake and mountain views and the fabulous living area that could accommodate a large extended family like ours we were sold. We thoroughly enjoy the lake and have had many enjoyable hours skiing, swimming and just riding around in a boat, amazed by the scenery.

What makes this cabin unique

One of the best things about Peacewood is the sunsets. They are spectacular. And we love viewing the wildlife. We never know if we will see deer running about or eagles soaring overhead.

Lovely, beautiful, quiet retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We loved Peacewood, it is a nature lovers dream. As we were sitting in the screened in porch one evening a Bald Eagle flew so close we were struck speechless. It is very quiet and calming. It feels very secluded but it was a fairly short drive to all the local attractions. Pigeon Forge, Gatlinsburg. and Dollywood. I must say the people of Tennessee are all very friendly, ready to point you in the right direction if you get turned around. LOL. We had a great time exploring the area. The smokey mountains are an incredible sight.

Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Smoky Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the cabin in Dandrige will always be remembered as a wonderful vacation spot for our family. My sister and two grandchildren greatly enjoyed our 2 day stay in the cabin. The cabin setup was very nicely decorated and comfortable. We enjoyed the many extras that came with our stay such as the beautiful views, screened in large patio, hot tub, full kitchen and laundry set up. We plan to return in the future when possible. Thanks so much for the great memories shared with my family. Sincerely, Sandra, Terry, Faith and Elijah.

AMAZING Time!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Peacewood for our honeymoon. It was an amazing week. The pictures of the cabin do not do it justice. It is beautiful, clean and well equipped with everything we needed. I loved the decor and it was close enough to tourist attractions for day outings, yet far enough away to not have to deal with the sounds of tourist. The view of the lake and sunsets were breathtaking.

The cabin was so clean that even my 'clean freak' husband could not find anything to clean (LOL). The water in the cabin had the smell of sulphur the first day but it dissipated as the water was used.

The only complaint other than the sulphur smell, is the two pitbull dogs that constantly hung out especially while we were cooking and eating. I could not tell if they were friendly but my husband is not a fan of dogs so that was a sore spot. They whined and scratched at the door for food.

We did not see any wildlife around the cabin, perhaps due to the dogs. Also, since we were not sure if they were friendly, we did not go out walking like we had planned.

We brought our boat with us and there was plenty of room in the driveway to keep it secure. The closest boat ramp was about 15 miles away and it was not usable after a rain due to mud, but that was fine as we used that time to go into Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

We at dinner one night at the Old Mill Restaurant and saw the Motown Soul show at the Grand Majestic Theater. Both were great!

Overall, the place was amazing, and I would recommend it to friends and family. There is plenty of room for a large crowd and yet comfy enough for two…..

Owner's Response: Hello Pamela, thank you so much for your kind words. I am very sorry about the Pit Bulls. The owner has been cited by the local animal control and I understand from the landlord of the pitbull owner's residence that he will be out as of the end of June. Please accept my apologies for this annoying inconvenience. Thanks again for your kind words and I hope to see you back again in the future. Kathy

Amazing House and Views!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are so hospitable and answered so many questions! We walked into the house and immediately fell in love with it. In the evening, we sat out on the screened in porch and watched the most beautiful sunset and reveled in the peace and tranquility. We had some family join us on Friday and Saturday and their comments echoed ours.

Everything worked well and the kitchen is very well stocked. Nice fluffy towels!!! Comfortable beds!!! and did I mention the quiet and spectacular views!

We will be back.

Vacation Get Away

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very clean and large enough for our family of four. The rooms were very nice as well. My husband and I traveled with our sons 9 and 12 who took advantage of the games and gaming table. There were a few things that needed updated or replaced. The pans in the kitchen are in bad shape. The protective coating on several are missing from poor use from previous renters I suppose. This made cooking breakfast a challenge. The master does not have a closet to hang clothing. There was a small rack behind the door that was less than ideal and had to be moved to the laundry room. Every remote upstairs in the kid area had to have new batteries. We replaced those and left the extra batteries for the next group. The gaming table has suffered some abuse and is flimsy. I was afraid my boys would break it so I had them stop using it. The tub upstairs did not drain very well and the main light by the shower was not working upstairs. Even with all of this our stay was AMAZING!! We loved every minute of it. There was not much of a lake view but what we did see it was nice. The screened porch was our favorite spot each morning and each evening. The cabin was decorated beautifully and all linens were easily located. I would stay here again for sure! We loved the tree top view!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you had an amazing time but regret that you had so many problems. There is a phone number included with the cabin instructions so that guests can contact the caretakers who live nearby. They will immediately address any issues and make amends and repairs when possible. They would have been happy to replace batteries, light bulbs and fix the drain in the tub (which has been done). As for the cookware I know that there is a brand new griddle which is excellent for cooking breakfast. There are also several pans which are stainless and have no coating. You should have had ample choices for cooking any type of meal so I apologize that they were not readily available. The caretakers assured me that they will make sure this does not happen again. As for the master bedroom closet, there is a walk-in closet that is kept locked because it is the "owner's locker". The "portable closet" which is kept out of the way in the bedroom has proved to be convenient and more than adequate since most guests do not bring many dressy or dressy casual clothes for mountain vacations. There is also a double dresser and chest of drawers. I agree that the gaming table has seen better days and has now been removed. As for the view, because of the extreme amount of rain the trees along the property are very lush and need to be trimmed. This project is scheduled for October.
