The Knotty Lodge is a custom-built, true log home nestled in the exclusive Wear Valley area, only 25 minutes to the Pigeon Forge Parkway. Enjoy your vacation or retreat away from the tourist chaos and traffic jams, surrounded by nature, with access to the locally-known back entrance to Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
As you drive onto this private, 2-acre lot, you will have seen only some of what this incredible, resort cabin offers. From a picnic pavilion, steps away from the property, to the fire pit, spa, and hammock, there are a multitude of activities for you to do or to keep others distracted while you relax.
Your entry into this Jim Barna-designed (jimbarnalog.com) retreat will begin in the Gourmet kitchen, equipped with true-custom cabinetry, walk-in pantry and large island with seating for 7. Two large dining tables sit next to the kitchen to accommodate your 20-member family's or group's feasts and conversations.
You can see the quality of the workmanship as your gaze sweeps over the authentic, whole pine logs that make up the walls and the rafters of the cathedraled Great Room. Here, beside the two-story, stone fireplace, the Southern view of the national park takes prominence. Imagine your mornings and evenings on the outside deck, taking in the air and the ambiance as the sun rises and sets over the cloud-covered mountains.
In the evening, you can retire to one of the expertly-appointed bedrooms. In the Master Bedroom, you will have your own private, wood-burning fireplace, a western view of the skyline and independent entrance to the deck. A walk-in closet with built-ins, tile surround shower, double vanity and whirlpool tub allow you to prepare for the morning or night. Relatives or friends can stay on the second, main floor bedroom, equipped with its own king-sized bed, twin and private bath. Entire families can sleep in their own upstairs bedrooms that each come with a king beds, bunk beds and private bath.
If you're not tired yet, make use of the upstairs loft, which has been created with a private club atmosphere in mind. A pool table sits in the center of the room. And if not in the mood for billiards, make yourself comfortable at the bar, couch or gaming table as you watch the finals on the 4K TV.
Alternatively, make your way down to the finished below-ground level of the cabin, a veritable playground for both adults and kids alike. Sit-down and stand-up arcade consoles will let you relive decades gone by, while the foosball and ping pong tables will create let you create lasting memories of your victories. If relaxation is your game of choice, you have the option of enjoying nature while swinging on the outside deck, or watching the latest movie release in the comfort of plush theatre seating with easy access to the wet bar. The entertainment level also includes two bedrooms and bunk beds, a perfect retreat if you want to keep the younger members of your group occupied while you relax upstairs.
When you need to get outdoors, a quick drive down the mountain will give you access to a community pool with snack bar and catch and release fishing pond.
Come enjoy this truly unique property, a welcome change from the standard, tired rental fare.
