We think that vacationing in the Smokies should be about the experience and not about spending time in your car. That's why when we first searched for a cabin to purchase, a location close to the action of Pigeon Forge as well as Gatlinburg was important to us. Both of our cabins are in Sherwood Forest Resort which is just 1.3 miles from the Pigeon Forge Parkway at Light #10. While our location is convenient, the mountain setting makes it seem like you are far way from the city... perfect for relaxing. The views of the Smoky Mountains are stunning!
swimming pool (seasonal), paved streets with street lights, city water system, gated entrances at night, and underground utilities.
Sherwood Forest is a neighborhood-style log cabin community. Click the thumbnail to see how the community is laid out in terraced streets.
