Overview

Dandridge 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 29 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.

Beautiful Home....great views!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 1 week stay in Dandridge! The home was beautiful. The home was truly decorated to feel like a home which we so appreciated..the views were gorgeous of the lake! This house has everything you need. We kept our boats at Swann marina which I highly recommend for boaters. The Point told us they would have room for our boats but when we arrived on our first day they told us they were booked and responded "sorry nothing we can do." Go to the Swann they literally moved boats around to accommodate us! WONDERFUL people! Peacewood is only about 20 minutes drive from the marina!

The screened in porch at Peacewood was wonderful, my only recommendation is to perhaps add a large dining table out there so that family's could eat outside and enjoy the view!

Our only issue was that we were traveling with 4 kids under the age of 8. When you get out of the cars in the driveway there is a very dangerous drop off on one side. I'm wondering if maybe some sort of fence could be added there to prevent any catastrophic situation. This didn't cause any issues for us we just kept a very close eye on the kids and didn't let them play outside unattended. We would return again in a heartbeat!!!!

Thank you for sharing your home with us! We all said we would love to come back in the fall to see the beautiful leaves turn!

Owner's Response: Rebecca, thanks very much for your review. It just so happens that we are receiving quotes now on installation of a fence along the steep side of the drive. I will certainly explore your suggestion of a dining table on the screened porch. It's a great idea.. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the lake. We love it too! Thanks for the info about Swans...always good to know. Please come back anytime and thanks very, very much for taking such good care of Peacewood. My Best, Kathy

Awesome

Sometimes with VRBO your stay is hit or miss. This place was a grand slam!! Very roomy, private, had everything you needed and the screen porch was great... oh and the hot tub! The family was very easy to work with and everything went off without a hitch.

Very peaceful with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This home was very beautiful with all the amenities that we needed. Hot tub was the right temp and plenty of towels and linens. Beds were very comfortable. All appliances are up to date with quality and made me realize I need a new set of pots and pans lol. There were even toys for my 7 year old daughter to play with. It was a short drive to gatlinburg and pigeon forge. Very reasonably priced for luxury living. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks so much!

The cabin is very nice. Out of the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge. The driveway is a bit rough.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is well maintained. Clean and nice. The garage was nice to have. There were 5 in our party and we were all very comfortable. The driveway is a bit rough. I have a 4x4 pickup and had to use 4x4 to get up the driveway. Overall we had a great time with no complaints. Loved the view of the lake. We did have a few visitors. Deer and squirrel.

Thanks for a great week of fun and relaxing.

Owner's Response: Hello Scott, thank you so much for your kind words about the cabin. I am so glad that you enjoyed your time at Peacewood. I agree about the drive way. We have a contractor coming mid August to black top it so it should be quite an improvement. Please keep us in mind for your future visits to the Smoky Mountain Area.

Peaceful but a little misleading

  • 3 of 5

My family and I had an overall good time at Peacewood. The property was clean and well taken care of. Very peaceful and relaxing. The property was mostly what I had expected, except one thing. When I reserved the property my biggest reason for doing so was that it was listed as waterfront property. I took that as meaning you could access the lake from the property but that was not possible. We had hoped to spend more time on the lake while having the comforts of home but couldn't. The only way to enjoy the lake was to travel 30 minutes. The game table that was listed was no longer there and we were not made aware of this. The water filter in the refrigerator was well past needing changed and multiple remote controls were missing batteries. The hot tub was very nice the first couple of days but got dirty fast. I think this was due to lack of chlorine put in by the cleaning company. I enjoyed the stay but this property should not be listed as waterfront. For this reason my vacation was not as expected.

Owner's Response: Dear David, I am so sorry that your vacation was not as enjoyable as you had hoped. I would like to respond by saying that in the listing where the property is tagged as Lakefront it clearly states that there is no direct access to the lake from the property, no trail and no dock. I am sorry that you misunderstood this. As for the hot tub, I spoke to you on the phone about this and explained that it was emptied, cleaned, refilled and shocked on the morning of your arrival. With proper use it should stay clean for about 3 weeks. It is routinely cleaned, emptied, refilled and shocked after each check-out whether it is 2 days or one week.We do not provide chlorine to guests since the tub is an expensive investment and could be damaged by the addition of too much chemical. Concerning the game table, I also spoke to you on the phone about this and explained that a previous guest had ruined the table and that I was in the process of having it replaced. I have removed it from the listing. The refrigerator filter is really not necessary since we are on a well system and have a highly sophisticated filtration system in the garage. I apologize for the batteries being left out of the remotes but am aware that you arrived at the cabin 3 hours before check in time and the caretakers felt rushed. So, in their defense I think they overlooked the battery change out. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.
