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 Pigeon Forge
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.

Perfect girls getaway
Private, well maintained, attentive service, great amenities, spacious with amazing views. We had a fabulous time on our girls trip and rarely left the property during our stay. The worst thing I can say is the internet is slow.
Thank you so much for writing a great review. We do have Dish but if everyone has their computers on at the same time and anyone streams movies, You Tube, etc during the month it slows it down incredibly for everyone else. Wish i would have know I would have purchased more GB for you.
We loved having you.
Truly one of the nicest houses we have ever rented in Gatlinburg! Location was perfect we like to stay away from the city. The view was the best ever! The accommodations were perfect for 4 couples.
We will be back!!
Awe thank you so much. We work really hard to assure your time in our property is everything you expect and more. Come back soon.
Property is amazing. Great location with amazing views. Would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great cabin that is not far away from activities but is not right in the middle of them.
Thank you so much for the great review. Please come see us again.
Beautiful peaceful and perfect for my family
Last-minute booking due to the hurricane but it turned into a really beautiful family vacation . Pam was fantastic and easy to work with . I recommend looking at the few properties she manages because you know you’re going to get the best service .
Awe Jason. Thank you so much. It was a real pleasure working with you. Come see us again soon.
Big house for big family
This is a great house for a large family. We were traveling with our three children, their spouses and 5 grandkids. It was nice having so many places to relax. Between the living room, library, game room and decks there was lots of room to spread out. The suite over the garage was perfect for the family with a 5 month old and a 16 month old since it was large enough for the cribs and also had a kitchenette for middle of the night bottles.
The view is amazing and we all spent many hours in the rocking chairs on the deck. The driveway is everything others have said and then some. None of us had any problems, but it is an adventure.
Only negatives we had was that the kitchen is not equipped as well as it should be. No grill brush, spatulas, etc. Also the hot tub at the garage suite was not working which was very disappointing.
Beautiful location. Tucked away and only 15' to G'burg.. All 12 family members loved it!
Was the perfect property for us. THANK YOU.
Beautifully said!!! Great place for all ages !! Come see us again
Great Wedding and Special Event (Family Reunion, Anniversary/Birthday Celebration, Company Business Seminar with theater area for presentations) Destination!! Our property even has a separate Honeymoon Suite adjacent to the main house. Let our event planner help make your "special" day just what you have always dreamed of. She can help as little or as much as you like.
We also hosted our family reunion here in 2010 and our activity list for the week included: Dollywood, Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg, hiking to Alum Cave, bicycling the 11-mile loop through Cades Cove (1 hour drive), whitewater rafting out of Hartford (45 minute drive; we booked through Nantahala Outdoor Center in Gatlinburg); swimming in the river at the Greenbrier, golf at Bent Creek, shopping at Tanger Five Oaks Outlet Mall, a day on a pontoon boat at Douglas Lake (35 minute drive to Gator Point marina, pontoons available for rent), dinner at either (or both) The Peddler and The Park Grill, lunch outside on the patio at The Best Italian, live music at Three Jimmies, an evening walk though downtown Gatlinburg, and other fun!! We only got most of that list done, because everyone wanted to stay home, have big barbecues, and play games and guitars of an evening. It was a blast.
Although we are closest to Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pigeon Forge is a short drive on the back roads and offers amazing fun for kids of all ages, a great choice of restaurants, movie theater, and tremendous shopping. Of course, it is home to the amazing Dollywood and Splash Country, the adjacent water park.
While Bent Creek Golf Resort is just 10 minutes from the house, there are other excellent courses in Sevier County, including the Gatlinburg Golf Course (located in Pigeon Forge!), and Eagle's Landing, in Sevierville.
